Playa Hermosa house description

The ‘POINT HOUSE’ is perfect for friends, multiple couples, and large families wanting to enjoy all the amenities of Playa Hermosa. If you're looking for a romantic getaway – this large, custom-built home is absolutely ideal! The area is very peaceful up in the hills, 4WD vehicle required, you’ll not be disturbed by large, partying crowds but possibly a few monkeys jumping around in the trees out your windows. But, if you want a night out, Jacó is a short 10-minute drive away and known for the nightlife, casinos and fantastic restaurants.

Perhaps you want a place to enjoy Playa Hermosa’s beach and surfing, but don't want the 'hotel' atmosphere; this house has all the comforts of home. But if you are interested in exploring Costa Rica's natural beauty, just short hikes away are beautiful waterfalls where you might see the gorgeous blue morpho butterflies or capuchin monkeys. The area is a natural flyway for the Imperial Scarlet Macaws; their distinctive red and blue coloration can be seen as the birds fly in early morning or mid-afternoon to feed on the fruits of the trees ringing the community.

An open floor plan, your house has a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious living area and three master bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The large, walk-in showers are made of slate stone, and completely open. One bedroom offers a queen size bed with a bunk bed. Wake up to enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace, looking at the beautiful view !

As you outside and listen to the multitude of birds indigenous to this area you will understand why guests refer their friends to the Point House. New in 2013 with all upgrades including WiFi, Apple TV, Flat screen TVs and everything in this house is NEW. All new paint, beds, furniture, handmade tiles, new everything!

We respectfully request the Point House is for paid guests only, no additional friends and/or parties of any kind are permitted, without prior written request and approval are permitted.
Our neighborhood is one of a handful of neighborhoods in Playa Hermosa offering excellent drinking water because we’re on a deep well which is also filtered.

All of Playa Hermosa restaurants and bars are within 5 minutes. The following is a list of activities, all within short driving distance (meaning less than 5 minutes driving): Vida Asana, a yoga retreat about 5 minute from the house, in an outside palm thatch asana, with a stream running next to it.
New mountain bike trails have been established in our neighborhood, the first in the Jaco area. Hiking is a very popular activity here; 100 yards from your front door there are numerous trails to explore to waterfalls, up mountains, into the rain forest or simply to the beach. Los Sueños Marina with world class sport fishing is about a 20 minute drive.

We offer amazing white water rafting and is about 40 minute away and our connection with Chiclets Tree Canopy Tour in Playa Hermosa offers a thrilling adventure for the whole family to enjoy while staying in Hermosa. The Canopy Tour takes place in the mountains near Hermosa beach (10 minutes drive from the Point House) and consist of 14 suspended platforms connected by steel cables and a hanging bridges.
The 1.5 hour drive to San Jose (The Capital) and the Juan Santamaria airport on a four-lane modern freeway makes The Point house the perfect location for a quick vacation getaway.

Looking forward to seeing you soon. Pura Vida!

      Owner info

      Year Purchased: 2013

      About the owner: We move to Costa Rica 15 years ago, We live in Playa Hermosa year-round and our home is located only a mile from The Point House. We are extremely active and love sharing all the benefits of Costa Rica with our guests. When we are not riding our dirt bikes through the jungles (we own Costa Rica Unlimited), we can be found surfing at Playa Hermosa, hiking the hills around our house, or just watching another amazing sunset !

      Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
      This property is unique as it’s built by us. We put a labor of love into this house, and every detail is immaculate. This is one of the very few homes on the hill, away from the other rentals. It can be a steep climb up the hill, 4WD is required, the first time you drive up but by the second time you'll be a veteran and understand why we chose this location. The only ones nearby are monkeys, toucans and other wildlife!

      The Unique Benefits at this House:
      We have a full-time maid and landscape/house assistance that live on the property in a small house you'll pass entering the POINT HOUSE. They are far enough away that you'll never see them....but if you want their advice or have any issues, they are there for you!
