Best stop in the Country...
"Just returned from a month long journey in Costa Rica. We had the pleasure to meet Kelie as well as stay in this stunning home for a few days! It was by far the BEST part of our trip. Not only was the home beautiful but also clean & comfortable. The home has everything you need to make it an enjoyable time...:)
Close enough to one of the larger city's so shopping as well as activities were close but far enough away to feel like you were able to relax....speaking of,did I mention the pool? A/C, comfortable beds & a washing machine?!!! Kelie was very helpful,prompt to reply and such a sweet person. We not only enjoyed the comforts of the home but we also spent the evenings poolside. Great family time!♡
Directions are easy,home is easy to access (some roads can be tricky in CR). We had no problems what so ever. I highly recommend this listing. Awesome home & great value! Thank you so much Kelie for helping us understand the PURA VIDA lifestyle! It was a pleasure....♡
Safe,secure,comfortable,fun,easy to access,well maintained,clean & great property management."

"Home was extremely comfortable for four of us. Amenities made it easy for everyone. Fabulous surfing! Community location is great, but a car is necessary. It's a very short ride to Jaco and ideal for trips to Manuel Antonio National Park, etc. We would stay here again if given the opportunity."

"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!"

"My two friends and I really enjoyed our stay. The home was beautiful and the grounds are perfectly maintained. The house is a nice setup for couples, as both bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and each have their own bathroom.
There are no condiments except salt and pepper, so be prepared to buy everything if you want to cook (we left olive oil). Also, there was only one bike, and the tires were completely deflated, so don't bank on having any. Lastly, Ricardo was amazing, but he speaks very little English, so you might need to get a little creative.
Overall, lovely stay and the owner/Ricardo were very responsive and helpful."
