Our four bedroom, open concept home is only 1 1/2 hours from San Jose, located in a small community called Hermosa Palms. It’s super easy to get to and truly offers something for all. You want to chill at the pool, it’s the perfect pool to do so. You want to ride the waves and surf it up, it’s year-round action here. You want to see gorgeous beach sunsets? or take a morning walk on the beach? Right out your door! You want to go see wildlife and take a tour of a national park or go zip-lining? We are located only 1 1/2 hours from one of the most beautiful parks in Costa Rica called Manuel Antonio. If deep sea fishing is your thing or golf, we are located 30 minutes from Los Suenos. Crocodile tours? Macaw watching? Beach Horseback riding, Massages, you name it! It’s here and we are the perfect base location to go exploring.

Our home is well taken care of. It is a home that we visit often and enjoy spending time in. We know that you will enjoy your stay in our home and go back with your own great vacation memories. It is our wish to give you the home to make your stay comfortable and easy.

Pura Vida!

*Beach Bar offers refreshments: Tropical drinks, sodas and beers as well as fish tacos, burgers and more.
*Pool + Beach in the same view = Peace, Serenity and Happiness
*100 Feet from the ocean. This is important because only 2% of the coastline in Costa Rica is private. Meaning that no homes can be built within 300 feet from the ocean. Hermosa Palms is part of that 2%. Making it one of the few locations to have ocean front HOMES.


Our Oceanview four Bedroom home offers plenty of room to relax & plenty of room to gather! It is a home that we have taken care of, love on and made sure that our guests will enjoy as much as we do.

*LAYOUT - 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.

*KITCHEN: The kitchen features top of the line appliances, including a Frigidaire Gallery Series Refrigerator, a new stove and a sanitized and purified water system. In the kitchen are all the amenities to make a fancy dinner including kitchenade mixer, BBQ, utensils, but you are not obliged because you can easily request a cook, go to a restaurant or order pizza in.

*BEDROOMS - This home accommodates 12 guests maximum in four bedrooms (8 adults+ 4 kids). 4 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms - One bedroom 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 fold-able 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. All bedrooms are recently painted, cozy, comfy and well kept.

*SECOND FLOOR ENTERTAINMENT CENTER- The second floor also contains an upstairs TV room featuring a 55” plasma TV with DVD option with several dozens of latest movies 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.

*ROOFTOP TERRACE with amazing sunset views! It’s our favorite for breakfast and happy ours. You can look down at the beach and out over the ocean, it’s an even more amazing view!

*GARAGE - There is a two car garage that is a closed garage and offers entry through the home.

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 golf course and marina, Jaco's night life. Playa Hermosa held the 2009 Billabong international surf competition.
