Property description

Welcome to paradise! This luxury air-conditioned home with private pool on the beach is a mere shell's toss away from some of the best surf in Costa Rica.

Our spacious home has three bedrooms (two rooms have one twin bed and one queen bed in each, and the master suite has a king bed) as well as two full baths.

Several restaurants and bars are a leisurely barefoot stroll in the soft sand to the north. To the south, wander down to the turtle rescue sanctuary. Along the way, you'll think you're on your own private beach, with a few surfers scattered about in the waves. The sunsets are breathtaking!

Playa Hermosa ('Beautiful Beach') is a world famous surfing beach just a few miles south of the bustling beach town of Jaco, which boasts hundreds of restaurants, shops, bars, name it!
We have local guest managers to assist you during your stay. They will drop by early in your stay to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. And our local Activity Manager, Erika, is available to book any tours or activities you'd like and in general help with whatever you might need,.
In summary, we attempt to make your vacation as easy as possible.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hello, from Jack & Beth! We're both from the midwest USA and currently reside in central Ohio. We're recently retired and we spend all the time we can in Costa Rica.

Why the Owner Chose Jaco:
We've been drawn to the ocean as long as we can remember...I think most people are. Our attraction to the sea began when we purchased and kept a 40 foot cabin cruiser in Fort Myers Beach, Florida back in the early to late 90's, and we've dreamt of retiring on the ocean ever since. Well, we finally got to retire, but our retirement cruiser, the 'Dolphin', met an untimely death in the Atlantic gulfstream, so we decided to look for something built on dirt (or sand), instead. Fewer water leaks. We ended up travelling a bit further south than Florida to find something warmer year-round on the ocean, and thankfully landed in Costa Rica, the 'Little Switzerland', on the central Pacific Ocean in a beachhouse that we love. We know you will, too, and we'd like to share it with everyone. Our goal is for all of our guests to have a great vacation, and we'll certainly do our best to ensure that happens! Give us a call, and Pura Vida (roughly translated as 'Life is Good', from Jack & Beth.
