  • First time in Costa Rica - Best trip ever!

    "We are a family of five with teenagers. As we have never rented a house through VRBO before, we were pleasantly surprised with the fabulous accommodations and the convenience of it all. The house was spacious and well decorated, with all the necessary amenities in good working order. The Infinity pool and outdoor shower were a big hit. Even my wife who never swims in pools took a few dips. Our youngest boy was in constant awe of the surroundings, with many iguana, toucan, monkey and other animal sightings. We even saw an owl land in a neighbouring palm tree. The owner and his staff really take care of this place and we would recommend it to friends and family. On occasion, the road noise is a bit noticeable, but did not take away from our fabulous experience overall. Jaco and Playa Hermosa are outstanding places to visit. Our kids learned to surf and loved the ATV trip through the mountains, which included swimming in a natural waterfall lagoon. WOW!!! Can't wait to come back in the near future!"

  • Wonderful home away from home in paradise

    "Our family was lucky enough to have stayed at Casa Escondida for three months. We loved the home for many reasons; the house is airy and spacious, with a breath taking view of the beautifully manicured garden and back yard. Our daughter loved spending time outside exporing the trees and fauna. We would wake up everyday to the birds singing, toucans and parrots visiting the mammoth trees outside, and the general serene and quiet of the home. Although it is completely quiet and private, there are neighbours and Ricardo (the caretaking) close by and we always felt safe. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, fantastic yard and hammocks, and is maintained by a warm and wonderful staff to ensure that it is in beautiful condition. Casa Escondida is about 1 mile away from Playa Hermosa, which a beautiful beach known as one of the best surfing beaches. We enjoyed sunsets there and watching the weekly surf competitions. The Casa is a close 10 minute drive to Jaco beach which provides all the ammeneties we were looking for (including a farmers market and many restaurants/bars/stores), but it felt miles away from the crowds of Jaco. We also loved driving to the quiet and calm beaches of Playa Esterillos, which are about a 15 minute drive from the Casa. We would love to stay here again! Highly recommended for those seeking adventure and for anyone looking to truly relax and be away from it all. Pura Vida!"

  • Amazing place A+

    "This was our fourth stay at this house and it was just amazing once again. Since booking with the owner, everything was spectacular. Our family and friends had a fabulous time, too. The house is wonderful, comfortable and pretty. The manager and the maid were really nice. The pool was beautiful, as always, and now there is a little restaurant at the pool that was awesome for cocktails and food. We love this house, we love Hermosa Palms and we love Playa Hermosa. The sunsets were priceless. ALL WAS PERFECT! Thank you for having us again in your lovely house. We will be back."
