"From check-in to check-out, this property was a breeze. This small community of 30 or so beach cottages was perfect for our group of 4. The home sits about 100 yards or so off the beach allowing your to hear the waves from the porch.
Upon our arrival, the house was clean and seemed ready for us. The home had everything we needed in terms of amenities, which gave us a great feel of a home away from home.
I do recommend having a car rental in this area to help your group get around. There are taxi services in the area but it is much easier to get a ride back to the house from town then vise versa. The home is situated about a 1/4 mile off the main highway on the dirt access road in Playa Hermosa. This is a surfers paradise as there are tons of consistent waves up and down the beach in Playa Hermosa. The one downfall of this beach is that it is Black Sand which makes it very hot to lay out on but the community pool offers a great solution to this.
Jaco is the largest town in the area and is about 10 minutes north via car. Once you spend a day or two in Jaco, you'll realize you made the right choice by staying in Playa Hermosa. We stayed here during mid-August and the weather was perfect!
The house as awesome, the hospitality was amazing, the communication was convenient. Thank you for the memories!"

"We were there for a weekend to spent some time with my cousin before her wedding. She and my other friends loved this house, the view is amazing, you can see the mountain in one side and the ocean in the other.It was the perfect choice to rest and disconect yourself of everything.
I hope to be back soon!"

"My family and I came to Costa Rica from New Jersey to enjoy a bit warmer weather since our December had been colder than usual. We envisioned long, warm days lounging and swimming at the pool enjoying the beautiful surroundings. This home is truly lovely, well-kept, clean and nice as the pictures displayed at VRBO.
If I were rating this review solely on the house, it would be 5 stars. However, there two areas of the home that I believe that the owner may want to consider improvement on – 1) the master bathroom shower drainage system needs replacement/repair and 2) the living room large black sofa is in poor condition.
Matt, the caretaker, was a great help for anything we needed. He was attentive and addressed our concerns timely. He made suggestions regarding restaurants, entertainment, and nightlife in Jaco which is 10 minutes driving by car from the house.
Playa Hermosa is super cool little town with amazing beaches, views, waves, restaurants and bars.
We rented a car so the trips to and from Jaco for dinner, nightlife, afternoon surfing contests, etc were a blast.
We visited Manuel Antonio beach (1.5 hrs drive from the house), went zip lining and rode ATV, which we loved. We also visited Arenal volcano, which was a long trip, but worth it. We loved the volcano and surrounding areas. Next time we will check out the hot spring.
All in All it was one of the nicest places we have stayed in Costa Rica...This was our 2nd time in the country, So a big thanks to Liz and Matt for allowing us to stay in your home and taking good care of us.

"Thank you Tim,
Having spent past several years going south and cruising I must say that we have never experienced anything quite like your lovely home and the beauty of Hermosa Palms. The home itself is well laid out and very comfortable. The only issue we had was with a sink drain and that was handled promptly. This community is truly a magical place with a monkey to eat from your hands in the back yard to the beautiful macaws making thier daily 3.30 pm flight around the pool. We had coffee every morning around 6.30 am at the tiki hut poolside looking out over a spectacular beach scene. Days spent exploring the country side and evenings on the beach applauding the most glorious sunsets. It truly is that beautiful.. The people that we met there were mostly resident owners but without exception they made us feel very welcome. I can not say enough about our personal experience. Be aware though that this may be habit forming, as we were making plans for a return before we left. Perhaps an extended stay of lets say a month next time. What do you think Tim, can you part with this little slice of heaven for that long for us?
Again many thanks
We look forawrd to our return.
Harold & Janet"
