Owner info

About the owner: We absolutely LOVE Costa Rica!. After several years of exploring most of the country, we found ourselves returning time and again to Playa Hermosa. It just felt like home to us...Our plans are to retire there one day, but in the mean time we've decided to share our our little slice of paradise with others.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
We built our home in Playa Hermosa for several reasons...We love the people, the climate, the beach, the food, the laid-back pace and just the over-all natural beauty of the country. PURA VIDA

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is all on 1 level with an ocean view and around a 10 minute walk to the beach. Perfect for families with kids and/or seniors. Tim (our terrific property manager) has been with us for over 10 years and his team are usually always available to assist our guests. Please feel free to call us anytime as well if you have any other questions. We're more than happy to share our experiences and knowledge of this wonderful country!
