Property description

At 300 feet above sea level with a beautiful ocean view, in the wonderful nature-filled mountains of Playa Hermosa, sits this spectacular family compound that will please even the most discriminating vacationer. The breezes are cool, the insects are non-existent and the views are superb. The quiet surroundings are amazing as one views the Macaws and Toucans as they land in the beautiful trees right before your eyes. Relax and enjoy nature at its finest in this 4 bedroom, 4 bath ocean-view wonderland!

This rental property affords the utmost privacy to our guests. The main home boasts 3 bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms, plus a third bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with many appliances plus a dining table that seats 6 comfortably. All glassware, flatware, and soft goods have just been replaced with new. The adjacent 2-story house has a large family room, equipped with a satellite flat screen television and WIFI, and a very large upstairs bedroom with an ocean view balcony! Of course there is another bathroom located in this structure.

Most of one’s leisure time in Costa Rica is spent outdoors and this home is absolutely perfect in that regard as well. The decks, which contain plenty of high-quality chairs and tables, are covered for protection from the sun which can be very strong at 9 degrees Latitude! All of these wonderful areas surround an absolutely beautiful fully tiled pool that is ideal for swimming or relaxing. Designed for water games or simply lounging with a cocktail, the pool is perfectly maintained at all times. When not in the pool, simply sit back and enjoy the beautiful mountain and ocean views while enjoying your favorite snack and cocktails.

The beauty of a mountain home in Playa Hermosa is that one can truly enjoy the best nature has to offer and yet be only a quick ten minute ride to the fun and excitement of Jaco, the world famous beach town. Whether it is excellent dining, the excitement of the night life or simply shopping for that great Costa Rican treasure, the town of Jaco cannot be beat. It’s crowded, it’s fun, it’s exciting … but it’s also a place to escape from to enjoy the true romantic, natural beauty that Costa Rica has to offer in Playa Hermosa. What better place to escape than this wonderful home that is just minutes from the beautiful beaches. Those who vacation at rental homes at sea level are often disappointed with the amount of insects and lack of breeze that exist at this low elevation ... these problems do not exist with homes at the higher mountain elevations such as Vista Del Mar.

This property just completed a major renovation including all new furniture, new beds with new mattresses, new air-conditioners, new clothes washer and dryer, new lighting fixtures, etc. Vista Del Mar is extremely comfortable and is ideal for a party of up to 8 guests. There will be no 'crowding' since everything is spread out nicely to eliminate the feeling of everyone being on top of each other.

Our house manager will greet all guests and make sure they are comfortable with their vacation paradise. You will appreciate an American, who speaks Spanish fluently, to handle all of your questions and concerns! The property manager is always available in the unlikely event a problem occurs during your visit.

Life will never be dull in Playa Hermosa! Everything is available locally, whether it’s a short trip to the magnificent national parks, in-shore or deep sea fishing, the incredible beaches and surfing, zip-lining through the rain forests or golfing at the beautiful Los Suenos Marriott resort. We will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the property, the area, things to do, places to go, etc.


We are confident that you will love your vacation in Costa Rica and our property, as your central base, will enhance your enjoyment immensely. We look forward to hearing from you soon and will do whatever we can to exceed your highest expectations. Please notice that our low daily and weekly rates INCLUDE the 13% tax that is added to rates advertised by other Playa Hermosa properties ... it is easy to calculate why Vista Del Mar offers the best value!

Car: Recommended

Vista Del Mar is a single rental property located on a mountain in beautiful Playa Hermosa. Wonderful ocean, mountain, and rain forest views add to the peacefulness and serenity that this area provides.

Just a short drive of approximately 10 minutes puts one in the exciting town of Jaco. This is the most popular town on the west coast of Costa Rica and boasts many excellent restaurants, night clubs, shopping, etc. Once back at Vista Del Mar, one escapes the noise and action of the busy town of Jaco to completely relax and thoroughly enjoy one's stay.

Less than one hour's drive south is the town of Quepos, another popular beach town, and the Manuel Antonio National Park. This is a must see for everyone experiencing Costa Rica.

Don't fail to visit the Los Suenos Marriott Resort! This is a wonderful facility with a first class marina, magnificent golf course, great restaurants, plus a casino.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Sherri and I moved to Florida from New Jersey in 1994 and retired from our professional careers in 2001. Having traveled to Costa Rica in the past, we knew we must have a second home in this wonderful country and Vista Del Mar was purchased in 2002.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
There is nothing more relaxing than entertaining at one's beautiful Costa Rican property with family and friends. The ocean and mountain views are enough to satisfy anyone but add the excitement of the popular vacation town of Jaco, just a 10 minute drive, and then return to the peaceful surrounds of Playa Hermosa ... it just doesn't get any better!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Vista Del Mar is a very private and safe family retreat that sleeps 8 people very comfortable. The ocean and mountain views are spectacular but equally so are the beautiful rain forests, the Macaws that fly near the house daily, and the best off-shore sport fishing to be found anywhere. If golf is one's game, the Los Suenos Marriott resort is just a few miles away. Costa Rica offers so much that it would be impossible to list it all here ... we have yet to meet one person who did not fall in love with our area and the life style that is available!
