About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our 3 Bedroom, 2-1/2 Bath home is located in the unique and secluded beach front community of Hermosa Palms. Located directly across the street from the beach front pool and shaded by 70 foot Mango Trees, our house has easy access to the beach and surfing. The beach is less than 100 steps from the front door.

The house is 2200 square feet . The ground floor has a spacious living and dining area where friends and family can gather to socialize and talk about the days adventures . The outdoor veranda is perfect for listening to the wildlife abuzz in the mango trees. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed, walk in closet and private bathroom with a shower. There is also a balcony. During the cool months leave the sliders open and the birds will wake you in the morning with their songs or take the stairs up to the third floor lookout and see the ocean one way and the mountains the other. There are two other bedrooms upstairs. One with a queen and one with 2 Twin Beds. They share a bathroom with a shower. There is a Blowup Queen Mattress which allows our house to sleep 6 people in beds plus 2 additional on the inflatable mattress.

Hermosa Palms is a gated community with 24 hour security. Take the beach road at the end of Playa Hermosa. Drive slow so you don't hit the potholes, miss the hot surfers, the occasional crocodile or the Macaws flying overhead. Pay close attention because you will see storks, spoonbills, Caracara, egrets, Herons, parrots,and a whole bunch of birds you cant identify. Beyond Hermosa Palms is a sanctuary dedicated to the protection of sea turtles. Playa Hermosa is a prime nesting area for Olive Ridley sea turtles from July to November. Every morning and afternoon scarlet macaws come to feed in the trees by the pool. The mango trees are home to iguanas, opossums, and all kinds of birds. Our house is usually home to geckos and the occasional beach crab.

Hermosa Palms is secluded enough to have nearly solitary beaches but also close enough to nearby Jaco for convenient shopping, restaurants, casinos and nightlife.

About Donna Delanty

My husband and I live in Park City, Utah. We have owned and operated a picture framing gallery for over 30 years. We enjoy skiing, golf, hiking and traveling

Donna Delanty purchased this house in 2004

Why Donna Delanty chose Playa Hermosa

How do I describe what this property has meant to me. 13 years ago I came for the first time and absolutely fell in love with the country, the culture, and the people. Looking back I was a little impulsive but I wanted a piece of it. My little bit of paradise. So I threw caution to the wind and bought a lot and built a house. Over the years we have had amazing trips and adventures. I invite you to come and visit this land of adventure and wonder. You don't have to go far from any location to see the beauty of nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So happy that Yonnit is back serving drinks and food at the pool. After a year of uncertainty hope she's back for good. Although I have never advertised this amenity on my listing at least one renter gave me a mediocre review because there was no pool bar service. Please note I have no control over this but am excited she's back in business.

Good place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Overall great place to stay. Was accommodated when asked for things maybe not at the quickest everyone would have liked but it was done within the next day or two. I would personally stay again.

Awesome Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

our stay at Casa 45 in Hermosa Palms was very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. The house was comfortable with many amenities. The location is very convenient and accessible to many Costa Rica attractions. We loved the monkey tour at Damas Island which was 45 minutes by car. We took the catamaran to Tortuga Island. The excursion started at 7am and ended at 7:30 pm. It included breakfast, 1 and a half Catamaran boat ride to the Island, a terrific lunch, snorkeling and a banana boat ride. The beach and water was very inviting. The fruit in Costa Rica is fresh and amazing. The fresh fish is healthy and plentiful. We especially loved the awesome sunsets every nite .

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was great!

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this house in Hermosa Palms. The house is probaby 100 steps to the great black sand beach. The Hermosa Palms pool and swim-up bar was very nice. The communication with Donna (owner) and Michael (local host) was a breeze.

The house was well furnished and clean. The house was well equipped - working ACs, washer/dryer, kitchen appliances... I couldn't figure out the grille outdoors, but no biggie... The Iguana guards in front of the house were a plus. ;)

Hermosa Palms is in a great spot, close to restaurants and stores, and close enough to Jaco if you want to get to the 'city' but far enough away that you don't feel 'close'. We ate breakfast at Vida Hermosa almost every day - sitting on the beach watching the surfers and the yoga-ers (?).

Unfortunately, we didn't get to make our planned trip to Quepos, so I don't know how far that was.

We highly recommend this home and neighborhood for your vacation.
