About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This LUXURY BEACHFRONT home is located on the best surfing beach in Costa Rica! In fact, this home is so close to the beach ,you can hear and see the spectacular sight of these sought out waves crashing on the beach. The beach is so close to the house that opportunity awaits for you to enjoy daily strolls or jogs on this beautiful and clean beach. From the new upper deck, you can relax and enjoy the view for miles and witness breath-taking sunsets each evening. Spend time relaxing by our new swimming pool while you enjoy watching the waves crash on the beach.

This air conditioned home is four years old and approximately 3100 square feet. It is located in a new-gated development with security. A safe is also available in the house to store your valuable possessions.

The floor plan is large and open. There are four bedrooms and three and a half baths. The master bedroom has a king bed. The second master bedroom has a king bed and the third and fourth bedrooms each have two twin beds. For your convenience, there is also a washer and dryer located in the home.

The kitchen is spacious and includes a large side-by-side refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc. There is plenty of room to sit at the granite counter in the kitchen. You may want to enjoy your meal outside up on the deck while watching the sizable waves or gorgeous sunsets. The view from outside is truly spectacular!

HANDICAPPED FRIENDLY. The house and yard are handicap friendly. There are no steps. The doors and hallways are wide. For added convenience, there is a large shower.

Hermosa Beach, where this home is located, is a world-class surfing beach that hosts international competitions. Since the waves are enormous, surfers from all over the world seek out this beach everyday. Even if you don't surf, it is very entertaining to watch the waves and the surfers.

Located at the Northern end of the beach, there are several 'Beach Boy' style bars and restaurants. You can relax, watch the surfers, and enjoy the sunset.

At the southern end of the beach is a new turtle preserve. During the season that the turtles come and lay their eggs, volunteers come help move the eggs to a safe place. The volunteers take care of the eggs until they hatch.

If you are a beginner surfer, you will enjoy JACO Beach, which is located to the north only one and a half miles. The waves here are milder. In addition, you will discover a wide assortment of restaurants, shopping, ATM/banking, internet cafes, nightclubs, bakery, pharmacy, medical services, churches, etc. in this town.

Wildlife can be discovered everywhere. Iguanas and geckos can be seen all around. For those with an adventuresome side,crocodile safaris are also available. If you stop by the Crocodile bridge, you can see crocodiles.

We highly recommend for you to experience a guided Canopy tour! You are hooked up to a cable with the safety of a harness. As you travel along the zip line, you go from one tree platform to the next. It is quite a thrill!

In addition, you can further experience Costa Rica by bird watching, sea kayaking, white water rafting, visit national parks, or relax in the hot spring pools located by the volcano.

To help you get settled in for your stay, we have a wonderful Hospitality professional to greet you for your check in and provide a customized welcome basket tailored to your needs. They will be available throughout your stay. For your convenience, arrangements can be made to have the kitchen stocked with food for your arrival. Maid/cooking services are also available. They are fluent in English and Spanish.

About Susan Kilsdonk

My husband and I are farmers in California. He has relatives living in Costa Rica. We would often go and visit and fell in love with this house on one of our visits. I am not normally a ocean type person, but fell in love with this area.

Susan Kilsdonk purchased this house in 2005

Why Susan Kilsdonk chose Jaco

We have been in many different parts of Costa Rica. Farther north gets very dry (hills brown) during the dry season. Farther south is more humid. This area is pretty much green year around like you would expect when you go to the tropics. The norther Tamarindo area was very disapointing to us being very dry and dusty.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located far enough away from the noise and busy trafic, but close enough to go in for dinner or shopping for what ever you need. Walk across the yard and walk out to a beautiful beach that goes for miles.

Privacy on the Beach. Hard to find today.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the hoards of people and you don't need the high end hotel, then you have found your perfect spot. The ocean is right across a small road that we spent every sunset. The pool is new and always clean. Yard is private with only one other house on the one side. The house was older but clean and everything worked. Thought we would eat out more but once we got here we never wanted to leave to go out to eat. There was a barbecue and a kitchen so we ate in mostly. Long walks on the almost secluded beach were incredible. Walked for breakfast to Hermosa a couple of times. Drove to Jaco for groceries but could not wait to get back to the house. Owner and manager were great. Had a couple problems and they were right there to help. I gave this a five star because when we come back to Costa Rica will stay here. That says it all.

Everything was just as advertised. 4 clean bedrooms, house is right across the street from a beautiful black sand beach. Short walk away from dining. 5-10 minute drive to Jaco. No complaints.

House was perfect in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Not my first trip to Costa Rica but I was with 3 friends who had never been. They all loved the stay at the house and didn't want to come home. They all got a kick out of the iguanas and proceed to name them all. The pool was wonderful and allot of time was spent in it.

Al frente de la playa

  • 5 of 5

La ubicación de la casa es excelente, al frente de la playa y en lugar tranquilo. La casa tiene de todo y cuando llegamos toda estaba bastante limpio.

Un par de detalles a mejorar: cuando llegamos, la clave que nos habían proporcionado para acceder a la llave no era la correcta; llamamos a los números de contacto pero no nos contestaron y tuvimos que esperar algunos minutos a que llegara a abrirnos la persona de mantenimiento. Y otro, no estaba disponible la clave del wifi, nos dijeron que debía estar a la par del router pero no estaba por ningún lado. Slds

I thought the house was excellent. On the beach and close to jaco. All 6 of us were happy with the rooms. Great air conditioning. Plenty of wildlife at the house with a pair of macaw parrots that visited daily which was cool to see and iguanas everywhere. Owner provides a helpful book filled with recommended activities that was helpful. Security on grounds which made us feel good.
