If you are looking for a serene beach side location with the convenience of a bustling town nearby, then our Noble Apartment 'HERMOSA' could not be a better choice. This fully-fitted bungalow is thoughtfully decorated with all the comforts you will enjoy coming home to. The perfect self-catering home.
Along with 25 other bungalows to rent, it shares a central swimming pool and tiki hut bar and sits by the ocean at one of Costa Rica's most famous surfing beaches. 'HERMOSA' is set in a fenced property, Hermosa Bungalows, that is staffed 24 hours a day. It's the perfect starting point for Costa Rica style adventures in all directions - the perfect vacation home. I can also find you alternative bungalows if you prefer 2 bathrooms or a different location at Hermosa Bungalows.
Stylishly and simply furnished, HERMOSA's two bright bedrooms have French windows that lead onto a wide back balcony - perfect for star gazing or bird watching. It's in a quiet spot where you can just listen to the waves and wildlife. Alternatively, being in the corner means you won't be disturbing people if you enjoy playing the Brazilian,contemporary and classical CDs...loud! The bedrooms have one double in the master and a large double bunk in the 2nd bedroom sleeping4. Also one on the sofa. Many interesting and carefully chosen pictures line the walls and we have created a real home-from-home with vases for flowers and even a teapot for the British. We have an Internet Connection too - so bring your laptop. You can go on-line and join Skype on the internet for very cheap worldwide calls. Or get your friends and family to join too as these calls are FREE between other SKYPE members.The bungalow also has a lockbox for your valuables.
The kitchen, with granite countertop is fully-fitted with everything you need with a Guanacaste wood breakfast bar which is also used as a serving hatch for outdoor dining. There is also a small drop-leaf dining table inside that seats 4. All the furniture is handmade to our designs by local craftsmen. From the front veranda there are ocean and wilderness views and it is quiet at any time of the day except for the birdsong.
From Hermosa Beach it is just an eight-minute drive into the town of Jaco which has many shops and every kind of restaurant you might desire. A 15-minute drive takes you to swanky Los Suenos with its hotel, casino, and famous yachting harbor.
Back home, wander one way along the beach at sunset to small hotels and restaurants. In the other direction, the miles of virtually unspoiled beach lead to a turtle rescue sanctuary at the far end with just a few scattered surfers in the waves. The ocean at your doorstep is of Surf Competition standard and the sand is dark and soft. Take day trips to waterfalls, botanical gardens, rain forests, and volcanoes.
Come home to hot showers, air conditioning and some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. There are binoculars in the bungalow if you want to marvel at twice as many stars as are already visible! There are colorful birds and butterflies and a visiting fisherman who comes to Hermosa Bungalows with fresh tuna at amazingly low prices. A stay at HERMOSA is a holiday that offers everything you could expect from a lush, tropical hideaway - and with the comforts of home. The on-site management company is on call in case you encounter any problems with your stay, and the home is maintained on a regular basis with cleaning, pest control, landscaping, and pool services. There is also a night time security guard.
I am also able to find other homes for rent at Hermosa Bungalows if you are a large party. If mine is booked there are other lovely rentals to choose from too so please drop me a line with any questions and i will help you with all your vacation needs. Come to our Hermosa Paradise.
