Private Homes house description
This amazing beachfront home on Playa Hermosa has all the joys of a resort vacation in the privacy of a furnished home. The 3,000 square foot decorated home has 5 large bedrooms, each coupled with their own bathroom. Two oceanfront rooms each have a queen bed and built-in twin, and two bedrooms with courtyard views each have a queen bed. A fifth bedroom is a large bunk room with a futon couch/bed and 2 bunk beds - both have a twin on top and full on the bottom - makes a great room for the kids!
Amazing views of the ocean fill the spacious great room and a brick boveda ceiling and large cupola add to the extraordinary details of this home. A well equipped kitchen and beehive fireplace in the living room provide all you need to enjoy a resort style vacation in the comforts of a private home.
Breathe in the refreshing ocean air from a large covered patio or an upper sun deck, or relax with the sunset next to a built in fire pit.
This home also has a ping-pong table for hours of fun and a wood burning fire pit right on the beach for roasting marshmallows or making s'mores or just relaxing to the sound of a crackling fire and mesmerizing ocean waves.
We are Pet Friendly - bring up to 2 dogs for just $75 per visit. They will love the freedom of the secluded beach!

The problems we had included major power issues...the day we arrived the house battery/generator shut down...did a reset per insructions on counter (known issue), power kicked back off after 2 min and count not be reset. Set generator to run (was on auto) and set garage breaker to bypass....the power would continue to flicker...washing machine, dryer, dishwasher would all go into power failure mode and not complete cycles...direct tv would also reset. If you ran the air in the ocean front east bedroom you would find water dripping on your head and pillow all night. Also the kitchen wasn't equipt with the utencils normally found in rentals houses in the area we had previously rented and the a coupe matresses in the kids room were so thin the kids wouldn't sleep on them. Ran out of propane for the grill and it took 2 full days even though owner said we would get a new tank next morning. One other comment the own might want to consider single ply toilet paper and water flow is weak in Mexico and having to plunge gets old. The house could be really nice if these problems were fixed.

Manager response: Dear Paula, We are very sorry for the power issues you experienced during your stay. The home is solely run on solar and generator, and under extreme power loads, (ie running the dishwasher, washing machine, dishwasher simultaneously) a power failure may occur. We are making improvements to the home to minimize this issue. After your stay, it is important to let us know which utensils you would have preferred to find in the kitchen and we will be happy to restock the kitchen if needed. Regarding toilet paper, we try to supply the thinnest toilet paper without it being too scratchy and uncomfortable to use. As with the power, sewer and water flow in Mexico is weak, as you noted, and it's important to be considerate of that in Casa Hermosa as well. We always encourage our guests to immediately inform us of any problems they may be having during their stay so that we may correct issues as quickly as possible and make their stay as enjoyable as possible. We appreciate your feedback and hope that aside from the issues you had, your family and the kids enjoyed your stay just steps from the beautiful beach and ocean. Thank you, Kirsten
The best family vacation!

This house is so beautiful that the pictures don't do it justice. The owner takes pride in keeping this place in great condition and we had everything we needed for our stay. We used the outdoor grill and fire pit every night and the show of stars was beautiful. We had 2 kayaks to use and we had tons of fun with them. The beach is secluded and we only saw a handful of people every day. I would recommend this beautiful rental to any family or large group of people.

Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you again soon!
We got a late jump on our vacation plans and found this little gem at the last minute. Initially, we were looking for places a little closer to the main resort area, but given it was Spring Break, our options were limited. Long story short, in the end we were grateful that our options were limited. This place was absolutely perfect for our group of 3 families. The pictures really don't do this place justice in terms of the scenery and attention to detail within the home. First off, you are literally right on the beach! From the shoreline, you can see the main resort areas off in the distance to the West. Although there are some houses around, you pretty much have the beach to yourself. The kids brought their boogie boards and the home owner has some sea kayaks that we used to play with in the water. The back parch is enormous with plenty of space (both shaded and non-shaded to hang out during the day. We utilized the BBQ quite a bit and thought that the outdoor shower just off the patio was a nice addition when coming in from the beach. There was also a nice little fire pit that we used at night. You can drive down into town and there are literally several stands on the side of the road that sell firewood cheap. Each of the rooms are a nice size and have their own full baths. It's more or less like having 3 master suites plus an extra bedroom in the main house. The 5th room across the courtyard was ideal for our kids. It had a couple of bunk beds and a twin in it. Very large room with a television in it. The kitchen was well equipped and the main living area was spacious and comfortable. We had fun making dinner for everyone and watching satellite TV and playing card games at the living room table. Going into town was a snap and very easy to navigate once you got your bearings. It took about 15 minutes to get to the Fish Market and maybe 20 or so to get to the main resort areas. We traveled to town a couple of times per day for activities, to pick up supplies, etc. We were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't all that bad a commute. In fact, we kind of enjoyed the ride! In the end, we really enjoyed the privacy and relative seclusion of the place. It was like our own little paradise. Overall, we had a very good experience from beginning to end at the Casa Hermosa! We will definitely be back.
