Property description

We invite you to come and stay in this custom built home just steps away from the ocean and at one of the best surf spots in the world! Sit and watch the surfers or participate in catching world class waves. Watch the sunset right from the back patio and feel the warmth of the sun and the ocean breezes. Play a game of pool. Take a morning or afternoon walk on our almost deserted beach and get in touch with nature. Let your senses unlock and escape your hectic life . Experience Costa Rica and you will not want to leave.

The house is all natural with stone, slate and granite throughout. Stained glass windows and Costa Rican art are seen throughout the house. The furniture was custom built for the home by local artisans.

There is nothing quite like opening your glass sliding doors and walking right onto the beach. This unique house is unlike any house you've ever seen.

Feel the ocean breezes come through the house. The house has all new windows and screens that help to keep the house ventalated.

There is one full bedroom with an en suite bath on the first floor facing the mountain side. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor 3 are facing the mountain side, one with en suite bath.

The master bedroom and a large second master bunkroom are oceanfront on the second floor. Wake up and look out of the window and see the ocean. Instant surf report!

The 30 meter long community pool is beach side and only 3 houses down from the house. Enjoy a fish taco and a drink at Yoyo's pool bar. You will want to spend your day there!

We are happy to set you up on activities such as zip line, ATV's, horseback riding, fishing, white water rafting, hiking, surf lessons and so much more.

We will get you oriented with a list of restaurants, grocery stores, transportation or whatever you may need.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We are native Californians and love the ocean. We reside in southern California in the quaint beachside town of San Clemente. The beach is where our heart is and we want to share a little bit of our paradise with you!

Why Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
We were married in Costa Rica and since then we have been looking for property. Perseverance and patience paid off when we found this gem. The previous owners put their heart and soul into this home and we will do the same.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Being beach front has its obvious advantages. This is a guard-gated community with foot patrol on the beach so you will have an extra added sense of security. The house is big enough to have privacy but also has a great community feel. Inside the furniture was made for the house. It is unique and interesting and art in and of itself. Beautiful stained glass and mural art throughout enhance the uniqueness and character of this home. This is a great family get-away...
