Playa Hermosa house description

Paradise found! Perfect turn-key, vacation-home ready for you to come in, set your bags down and get as much adventure or relaxation as your heart desires. Located in a safe, gated community with 24 hour guards, and maid service offered, this home is ready with the must-haves: central air and wireless internet. This home has beach access (a 200 meter walk on a grassy trail) right into the heart of Playa Hermosa.

The home is two floors with an open concept. Upon entry, the living room, dining room and kitchen adjoin to create a big get-together room. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, new appliances including a Frigidaire Gallery Series Refrigerator, and a sanitized and purified water system.

There are four bedrooms in total. One on the main floor including queen and twin size beds with a separate full bathroom. There are three bedrooms on the second floor: 1) The master bedroom suite includes a queen-size bed and an additional foldable twin size bed as well as its own private bathroom including shower/bathtub. 2) Bedroom containing a queen size bed, and Bedroom 3) Ocean view room with a Queen size bed shares spacious full bathroom with bedroom #2.

The second floor also contains an upstairs tv room featuring a 51” plasma tv with dvd option and two leather sofas. It’s perfect to send the kids upstairs for a quiet midday rest time or to calm down in the evening from a long day at the beach.

Speaking of evenings at the beach, Hermosa means Beautiful and Playa means Beach. You will see how Playa Hermosa earns its name as you watch gorgeous sunsets right on the beach OR from the home’s rooftop terrace. Looking down at the beach and out over the ocean, it’s an even more amazing view! In fact, this home features two outdoor terraces, one rooftop terrace which is perfect for sunsets, star gazing and listening to the ocean. The other terrace is a sundeck off of the second floor perfect for barbecuing, sun bathing and a family fiesta! The second-floor terrace also has a breathtaking ocean view plus a grill, an outdoor table and extra seating ready for the fun.

This home accommodates 12 guests maximum in four bedrooms (8 adults+ 4 kids). There is a two car garage with garage access. Rentals for surfing, boogie boarding and more are available upon request.

The community of Hermosa Palms features an enormous pool with plenty of seating. One end of the pool has zero depth entry for the kiddos and at the other end of the pool, a swim up bar for the adults. Fun to be had for all!

                  Car: Recommended

                  The home is situated in a safe, gated community. The community is beachfront on one of the most known surf beaches in the world. While the town of Hermosa is relaxed and pura vida, with it's surfer vibe, the location is only a 15 minutes drive to Jaco. In Jaco you can find anything you need or want from a vibrant night life to boutique shops, restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores and more.

                  Another great day trip is Manuel Antonio, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful state parks. Only an hour drive from Hermosa, here you will see three white-sand beaches and swear that each one is more beautiful than the one you saw before. Take a hike or a guided tour through this National Park and see monkeys, birds, frogs and more.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
                  the view, the ocean, the beach, the amazing nature and...only 1.5 hours from San Jose made Playa Hermosa the best escape and hideaway from city`s noise and pollution. Jaco only 15 minutes away, makes easy the last minutes shopping (for those who decide to cook instead of going to a restaurant). 25 minutes away from Marriott Los Suenos and its first class golf course and marina. One hour from Manuel Antonio most visited National Park.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Hermosa Palms is located on only 5% of costarican titled beachfront lots. This makes House 96 a very unique place to relax. There is hardly any resort so close to the beach. Hard to find a place so close to San Jose national airport, main gold course and marina, Jaco`night life. Playa Hermosa held the 2009 Billabong international surf competition.
