About the Property

Four Bedrooms, Four And 1/2 Baths Including A Studio Apartment

The main house has three bedrooms and three and one half bathrooms. Upstairs there is a party room with a four-person bar and dining for eight. The attached studio apartment has a bedroom, a full bath, and a small kitchen area. Three of the four bedrooms have direct access to the pool and ocean views. There is one king bed and two queens. The garden room has two single beds that can be used as a king. This is particularly good for children, as it is the only room without a door to the pool and patio.

The patio, surrounding the lap pool, is over 1,000 square feet. It includes a wood-fired BBQ and seating for eight.

The pool has two lanes, each 50' long. The depth is about three feet on one lane and four on the other.

The main floor of the house, including all bedrooms, is wheelchair accessible. The driveway is paved with stone, with ample covered parking for two vehicles.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Don and Claudia met in Portland, OR in 1975. They bought a home in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood where they raised four children. Don taught mathematics for thirty years, most of it at a community college. Claudia worked in adoption, recruiting families for special-needs children. The children are now spread out in four cities, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Richmond, VA. Don and Claudia have six wonderful grandchildren. They still live in the Mt. Tabor area.

Why Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
We first came to Costa Rica for our 20th anniversary. We loved it. Subsequent trips convinced us that we wanted to spend much of our vacation and retirement time there. We bought this property only after spending two months as VRBO guests in Playa Hermosa. We loved the multicultural aspects of the town. If you speak English, Spanish, or French, it is easy to communicate with most people in town. We built the house in 2005, and have made improvements to the house and property every year since then.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Although the villa is beautiful and comfortable on the inside, Costa Rica is a place in which one lives outside. With warmth and sun for 12 hours every day, few restaurants or hotel lobbies even have inside seating. With music through the outdoor speakers, the lap pool, the grill, and outside seating, there are few reasons to be inside until after dinner. Even then it is comfortable out side nearly all year.
