Property description

Enjoy Morning visits from howler monkeys, beautiful birds and iguanas while drinking your coffee. Be mesmerized by turtles coming out to nest on the beach. Learn to surf on one of the best beaches in the world. Watch the most spectacular sunset every night. Enjoy leisurely walks and search for sea shells on an endless beach. Relax with a book in the shade by the pool while the kids play endless games of Marco Polo. You can do it all when you stay at Casa Hermosa.

Casa Hermosa is located in the exclusive gated community of Palm Beach Estates in Playa Grande. Playa Grande, which is named one of the top 10 in the World by Travel and Leisure in 2013, is located immediately north of the beach community of Tamarindo and is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world. It is also famous as a major nesting site for the highly endangered leatherback sea turtle, the largest reptile on Earth. The house is ideally located on the southern end of the 3 kilometer beach, less than 200 meters from the water and within the sound of the crashing surf.

The Spanish styled home has been professionally decorated to reflect the natural beauty of the area and thoughtfully organized to meet all your needs. The 3000 sq. ft home has 4 bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queen beds and 4 bunk beds) and 4 full bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate 10-12 people. The house has been recently renovated with new furniture, entertainment center and decorations.

The front room is a casual space and perfect for kids of all ages to gather, watch movies, and play games. The front room can be opened up to connect with the great room, providing a spacious place for everyone to gather but still provide cozy areas to meet everyone’s needs. In the great room, you will find an entertainment center, including a new 60” flat screen TV, DVD player and music system for MP3 players, high speed WiFi internet. The gourmet kitchen is beautifully laid out with granite counters, breakfast bar, a full stainless steel freezer and refrigerator, European gas stove, microwave oven, dishwasher, and custom cabinets. This kitchen is fully stocked for all occasions, whether that’s for a party of two or ten.

The sliding doors in the great room open out to a large outside patio, private pool and garden. You can enjoy breakfast or evening drinks while the beautiful birds visit the garden. The pool provides a refreshing oasis after a hot day of excursions and a wonderful place to gather and play.

The master bedroom, with high vaulted ceiling and wrap around patio is a perfect place to find serenity. There is also a small work area, with a desk where you can catch up with work if needed. Additional flat screen TV, dvd, music system and a comfortable couch makes the master bedroom a suite on its own. With WiFi and free phone calls to the U.S., you can set up a home office and telecommute. The iron-gated porch outside the master bedroom is set up to give you some peace and shade throughout the day.

There are two other bedrooms with queen size beds (with memory foam pads) and full bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is set up with 4 bunk beds. All bedrooms have ample storage space and air conditioning.

Playa Grande

Car: Not Necessary

Casa Hermosa is located in the exclusive gated community of Palm Beach Estates in Playa Grande. Playa Grande, which is named one of the top 10 in the World by Travel and Leisure in 2013, is located immediately north of the beach community of Tamarindo and is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world. It is also famous as a major nesting site for the highly endangered leatherback sea turtle, the largest reptile on Earth. The house is ideally located on the southern end of the 3 kilometer beach, less than 200 meters from the water and within the sound of the crashing surf.

Playa Grande is truly spectacular. At high tide, large waves provide excellent surfing and boogie boarding. At low tide, a sand flat extends more than 100 meters off the beach allowing the family to enjoy the waves in safety. The beach has no rocks to stub toes and is literally covered with sea shells. Water temperature is usually 82 degrees rendering wet suits pointless. The entire beachfront is now a national park to protect the nesting turtles and this has greatly limited development. As a result, the southern end of the beach is often deserted and never has more than small number of people. The western orientation provides spectacular sunsets and reduced night lighting (to protect the turtles) allows for phenomenal star gazing.

Palm Beach Estates has a small general store a quick five minute walk from the house. Next door is a surfing inn and school that has great instructors for visitors looking to try out the sport or improve their skills. Three excellent restaurants are a short walk from the house.

Boat tours of the beautiful estuary with its monkeys, crocodiles and birds, can also be arranged within walking distance. The limited traffic means the dirt roads are great for those looking to do a morning jog. The north end of the beach is a short five minute drive along the access road. North Playa Grande has a number of restaurants as well as surf shops and a spa.

Casa Hermosa’s southern location lets you take a beautiful 1 kilometer walk along the water to the estuary separating Playa Grande from Tamarindo. From there you can either take a 1 minute water taxi ($1/person) to Tamarindo or take the short swim depending on the tide. Tamarindo is the largest beach community in Guanacaste and has many amenities including shops, surf schools, tennis club, U.S. style grocery stores and dozens of excellent restaurants. If you have a car, you can also get to Tamarindo by driving 25 minutes around the estuary.

About: We discovered Playa Grande while we were staying at nearby Playa Langosta. On a recommendation from a local surfer, we decided to have dinner at Bula Bula and check out the hidden gem of a beach that everyone was raving about. With happy hour drinks in our hands, we sat and watched a spectacular sunset and decided this was one of the most magical places in Costa Rica. On our next trip, we decided to stay in Playa Grande for 3 weeks. For us, Playa Grande combine the best of Costa Rica—beautiful pristine beach, surf, wildlife, no crowds, natural beauty, comfort, and wonderful people. We knew we wanted to be part of this paradise and decided to buy a house. We chose Casa Hermosa because the house is beautifully constructed and we could hear the ocean waves while still being just far enough to not bother the turtles that grace the beach to nest. We also loved the fact that the house is in the National Park and we are committed to doing our part in making sure that Playa Grande stays pristine, beautiful and magical. We live in San Jose, California, which isn’t a bad place to live either. However, we look forward to every opportunity we get to spend some wonderful time in Casa Hermosa with family and friends. We hope you will have many lasting memories.
