WHY PLAYA HERMOSA?

Hermosa means Beautiful and Playa means Beach. Playa Hermosa is beautiful and aptly named! It’s a long and wide, beautiful beach that boasts beautiful sunsets and waves that are framed by lush palm trees.

*Great for Surfing - 2009 Billabong Surf Competition Location.

*INS ISA WORLD SURFING GAMES 6-14 Aug. 2016

*Year Round Waves - One of the unique location in the world with waves the entire year.

*Beautiful 5 Miles of Beach walk - Wide and Long Beach.

*Turtle nesting season is early September through early November.

*whales and dolphins watching from August to November

*Only 1 1/2 hour from San Jose Airport Runway to the Villa Cachou Runway (as in driveway).

*Great Base Location to Explore the Area

WHY HERMOSA PALMS?

* Pristine Beach with Easy Beach Access right into the heart of Playa Hermosa

*24 hour Security

*Far away from civilization but 10 minutes from the grocery store, restaurants and shopping.

*Rentals for surfing, boogie boarding and more are available upon request at pool office.

*Huge Swimming Pool for all ages featuring zero depth entry on one end.

*Pool + Beach in the same view = Peace, Serenity and Happiness

*Wet bar at pool + Yonit = best cocktails and best food in town

*100 Feet from the ocean. This is important because only 2% of the coastline in Costa Rica is private. Meaning that no homes can be built within 300 feet from the ocean. Hermosa Palms is part of that 2%. Making it one of the few locations to have ocean front HOMES.

WHY Villa CACHOU?

Our Oceanview four Bedroom home offers plenty of room to relax & plenty of room to gather! It is a home that we have taken care of, love on and made sure that our guests will enjoy as much as we do.

*LAYOUT - The home is two floors with an open concept. Upon entry, the living room, dining room and kitchen adjoin to create a big get-together room.

*KITCHEN: The kitchen features top of the line appliances, including a Frigidaire Gallery Series Refrigerator, a new stove and a sanitized and purified water system. In the kitchen are all the amenities to make a fancy dinner including kitchenaid mixer, BBQ, utensils, but you are not obliged because you can easily request a cook, go to a restaurant or order pizza in.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor: 1) The master bedroom suite includes a queen-size bed and an additional fold-able twin size bed as well as its own private bathroom including shower/bathtub. 2) Bedroom containing a queen size bed, and Bedroom 3) Ocean view room with a Queen size bed shares spacious full bathroom with bedroom #2. All bedrooms are recently painted, cozy, comfy and well kept.

*SECOND FLOOR ENTERTAINMENT CENTER- The second floor also contains an upstairs TV room featuring a 55” plasma TV with DVD option with several dozens of latest movies and two leather sofas. It’s perfect to send the kids upstairs for a quiet midday rest time or to calm down in the evening from a long day at the beach.

*ROOFTOP TERRACE with amazing sunset views! It’s our favorite for breakfast and happy ours. You can look down at the beach and out over the ocean, it’s an even more amazing view!

*GARAGE - There is a two cars garage that is a closed garage and offers entry through the home.

Please take a look at the pictures and ask any questions. We are happy to help you make the right vacation decision for you, your family and friends!

Why jean-jacques cappa chose Puntarenas

the view, the ocean, the beach, the amazing nature and...only 1.5 hours from San Jose made Playa Hermosa the best escape and hideaway from city`s noise and pollution. Jaco only 15 minutes away, makes easy the last minutes shopping (for those who decide to cook instead of going to a restaurant). 25 minutes away from Marriott Los Sueños and its first class golf course and marina. One hour from Manuel Antonio most visited National Park.

What makes this house unique

Hermosa Palms is located on only 5% of costarican titled beachfront lots. This makes House 96 a very unique place to relax. There is hardly any resort so close to the beach. Hard to find a place so close to San Jose national airport, main golf course and marina, Jaco's night life. Playa Hermosa held the 2009 Billabong international surf competition and INS ISA WORLD SURFING GAMES 6-14 August 2016.

The house is beautiful and the country is beautiful. Rich Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Everything exceeded expectations! Everyone was friendly. The house and beach were beautiful. Hermosa palms is only about 10 minutes from Jaco which is a nice little party area. We were about an hour away from Quepos which is a nice little coastal town with lots of tourism. We had privacy, but if we needed anything we were within a few minutes of a drive to get it. The house was comfortable and has amazing views from the rooftop terrace. San Jose was cool to travel but we were mostly at the coast in Hermosa/Jaco/Quepos. Everything was well worth it and anyone that attended this vacation would hands down go back to Costa Rica. Jean-Jacques was on top of everything the whole time and took care of any questions or issues that we had.

Pura Vida - Playa Hermosa !!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much to JJ and his community at Hermosa Palms, Playa Hermosa! With a very active group of adults and teenagers, this little slice of heaven on earth was truly Pura Vida! Situated just close enough (10 min) to Jaco, for restaurants, shopping, evening out, farmers market, experience a little hustle of an active coastal community.

Just enough to realize that the black sand beach back at the house was the only place we really wanted to be. We had two families, with 5 teenagers, and the home was more than accommodating with space, and separate living areas for whatever the group felt like doing. Kids chilled in the evenings with the massive movie collection in the TV room. A perfect common area attached to the kitchen for cooking, games, or a few Imperials while discussing the adventures of the day. We cooked out on the charcoal grill one night, a great addition to the incredible seafood available locally.

The multiple level patio's allowed for a unobstructed view of the near perfect break of Playa Hermosa. Costa Rician cup of coffee, and fresh fruit, to start the day as the sun rose from the backside of the house. Of course made for some of the most stunning sunsets every evening. We were able to see (and hear) the flock of macaws chatter their way through the trees...so colorful! There's a spiral staircase that takes you to a third level, a roof top covered patio that gave you a 360' view of the area. We spent one night watching an unforgettable lighting storm over the ocean. Perfect area for outdoor gatherings!

A 100 yard walk, escorted by dozens of HUGE iguanas, the common pool shared by the community is a beautiful large facility. Enjoy the swim up bar operated by Yoyo with her beautiful family and accommodating staff. They offered amazing and unique libations, cold beer, and perfect poolside food throughout the day. Get to know the staff on-site they will give you the local vibe for whatever you are looking for. There's round the clock mobile security, and staff that were helpful and friendly. Hermosa Palms is so remote, but it was comforting to have staff keeping an eye on the the entire property.

If you love all inclusive, resort properties, 24 hour restaurants...this may not be for you. If you'd like an opportunity to change yours, and your families disposition on life, culture, a walk on black sand beach, without encountering a single foot print, or person for miles...like us, you may walk away with...Pura Vida!

Clean, safe, convenient, and full of amenities! Entire family thoroughly enjoyed this location!

  • 5 of 5

Jean-Jacques was most hospitable and provided us with an abundance of information about the area, local contacts, and local amenities. He was very responsive to our questions and attentive to our needs during our stay. We had two families of 4 and the place worked beautifully for us (children ages 14 - 18). Plenty of space and a wonderful environment with easy access to the beach, big waves, a beautiful large pool overlooking the beach, fantastic friendly staff and central location for access to Manuel Antonio and Jaco. Be sure to indulge in the poolside bar - awesome fish tacos, fresh salads, and amazing smoothies and affordable cocktails to compliment the sunset!! The bartender speaks 4 languages and is as much of a concierge as a bartender! Also, enjoyed the owner's recommendation for a private Chef (Ezequiel Gil) who served us the best meal of the week. He purchased the food, prepared the meal, and even cleaned up afterward. Had so much delicious food, we were able to make a second meal of it later in the week. The whole week was outstanding. Our families really enjoyed the house and its location. We would highly recommend it to anyone!!

AHHHH-Mazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home over Christmas break. We loved every moment. We're a very budget conscious military family so a trip to Costa Rica was a big splurge; this home was worth every penny!! Not only is the home beautiful and well maintained, the owner is incredibly responsive and helpful, the community is the perfect balance of feeling safe and also feeling connected with all the natural beauty Costa Rica has to offer.

Palm trees and perfect waves, a very special place

  • 5 of 5

Stop searching and book a week at this place. The owner, Jean Jacques is great to work with answering any questions and providing all info needed. Playa Hermosa is a surfers dream, this house is at the perfect spot for guaranteed waves. We used points on Southwest Airlines to get to San Jose and arranged a rental car through the owners contact, it was all a positive experience that worked as planned. I downloaded google maps offline on my phone to get from San Jose airport to Hermosa Palms, about a 1.5 hour easy drive through the mountains. A few tolls along the way and we reached the gate house, 24 hour security made me sleep very comfortable at night. The house is amazing with ocean views from the second floor master bedroom and guest bedroom. There is a third rooftop covered deck perfect for coffee/breakfast while checking out the waves coming through.

Lots of room in the house and a full kitchen. Two car garage is perfect to store surfboards and rental cars. Very clean and luxurious home. It's a very short walk to the beach and pool area. Stunning sunsets and pool time were a priority in between 3 sessions of surfing each day. Swim up bar with wonderful staff and excellent fish tacos and fresh pineapple daiquiris. Black sand beach gets hot, so remember flip flops to get to the water.

We saw rooster fish and jack swimming and eating bait just passed the breakers, while out surfing multiple rays jumped out of the water making it a memorable experience. Soft sand bottom with big tide swings create a different surfing experience each day. Check out Backyard restaurant just up the road for great food and service. Jaco is not far with a couple grocery stores, great restaurants, and night life as well. January had no bugs to deal with except for a couple flys after dark.

It's the definition of paradise, do whatever it takes to get to this place and experience Playa Hermosa at Hermosa Palms, it's a special spot you need to visit!

Car: recommended

The home is situated in a safe, gated community. The community is beachfront on one of the most known surf beaches in the world. While the town of Hermosa is relaxed and pura vida, with it's surfer vibe, the location is only a 15 minutes drive to Jaco. In Jaco you can find anything you need or want from a vibrant night life to boutique shops, restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores and more.

Another great day trip is Manuel Antonio, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful state parks. Only an hour drive from Hermosa, here you will see three white-sand beaches and swear that each one is more beautiful than the one you saw before. Take a hike or a guided tour through this National Park and see monkeys, iguanas, parrots, birds, frogs and more.
