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.

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 !

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!
