About Kelly Curro

Kelly and Doug the owners of Hermosa Bungalow #28.

We live in sunny South Florida were we enjoy outdoor activities like, boating, sportfishing, surfing (Doug), gardening and yoga.

Kelly Curro purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Kelly Curro chose Playa Hermosa

We have been traveling to Costa Rica for many years in search of waves. While traveling back from Pavones one surf trip we stopped by Hermosa to check the waves and to our surprise they were building homes in front of the surf break. Shortly after that visit we purchased the beach house.

What makes this bungalow unique

Some of our favorite things about the beach house are

1. The covered back terrace which is great for viewing the monkeys and other wildlife or stars at night.

2. The beach house is close enough to the beach and pool yet far enough from the excitement to be able to take a nap on the porch.

3. The decorating makes the house romantic and cozy.

4. The beach house is close to everything, Jaco, Los Suenos, Manuel Antonio. You can even take a day trip to Arenal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"2 friends and I spent 2 nights at Bungalow #28 and loved it. The location was perfect. Very quiet except for the wildlife sounds outside. It is a short walk to a surfer's beach, and the pool is close by too. Pool area was especially nice to relax with plenty of lounge chairs in the sun or shade, and even a couple hammocks. I loved sitting on the back porch early in the morning to watch the scarlet macaws and other birds flying past. Definitely bring your binoculars! The bungalow is equipped with all the basics and extras like beach towels and a dvd player. It is beautifully decorated, with nice paintings on the wall and comfortable furniture. Bungalow is also a short distance by car from Jaco's restaurants & grocery stores, while avoiding all the people and noise of Jaco. We'd highly recommend this bungalow and hope to return."

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Costa Rica 15+ times and finally decided to rent a bungalow. Renting from the owners was easy and their responses were very fast, usually within minutes. They took care of all our needs.

I remember when these bungalows were first built. The bungalows now remind me of ones seen in the South Pacific. The trees and other greenery surrounding the bungalows is now grown and looks beautiful. There was a ton of spiral ginger with large white flowers that attracted a large number of hummingbirds that were there on and off all parts of the day.

The bungalow was close enough to the beach (about a two minute slow walk) that the ocean could be heard when waking in the morning. The rear porch was awesome and very private. The outside shower was also handy.

It was also great being able to park the car under the bungalow on those sunny days (kept the car cool before entering). There was a really cool makeshift swing at the beach under the coconut trees. Pool was perfect for the evenings. A/C was very cold if needed. Well worth the stay. I would suggest it to anyone.

Beautiful, quiet, paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Hermosa Bungalows so much, we have already scheduled our return.

A lovely 2 bedroom with open kitchen/living room. Beautiful back porch overlooking the wild with excellent birdwatching. The front porch was spacious and had views of the crashing waves.

The bungalows are safe and secure, with a mix of full-time bilingual residents and vacationers. Brian, the manager was incredibly helpful and clearly works to make sure everything is in good order.

We met new friends and enjoyed chatting at the pool and tiki bar. The beach and great waves were just across the street and we enjoyed each sunset over the Playa.

Life's a Beach on Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in Kelly's beach bungalow. As before, we thoroughly enjoyed the house, the lovely pool and complex of bungalows, and its easy access to Playa Hermosa. The front porch is an extension of the house, and we spent hours relaxing there. The bungalow is well equipped, as advertised, with a definite "beach house" feel. We also enjoyed walking North along the beach about a mile to the tiny town of Hermosa, eating several times at both Vista Hermosa and Vida Hermosa. Vista is more Tica style, and Vida is a bit more tourist centered with a few beers on tap. We look forward to returning again to this lovely vacation rental.

Great location, clean house, friendly community

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the the house for 3 nights. We had a great time: surfing , watching sunsets, swimming in the pool. Lots of kids in the community, so it was fun for our 2.5 year old son to jump on a trampoline and try to skateboard :) there is a Local Surf competition on Saturday afternoon. also location is close to Jaco. Bungalow had everything that we need and the shower outside to wash off the surfboard and sand after beach is a great thing to have. Thanks Kelly for cooperation and allowing us to check in early! Would definitely stay again. Pura Vida
