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.

Beautiful, quiet, paradise!
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
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.
Thank you Wayne for choosing bungalow #28 for your family vacation! I look forward to hearing from you soon to book your next trip.
Great location, clean house, friendly community
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
Thank you Veronica! I look forward to hearing from you soon to book your next trip.
Great location, house still needs some work
The pros: The house is located on a really nice community, few steps away from the beach and really nice neighbors. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, all AC works perfectly and also has a washer/dryer. It has a garage space for two cars. The price is really good if you compare it to the other units. Loved the pool. Early check in if available is offer by the owner.The house is in the back of the property so if you go to the back porch you can see some birds during the morning.
The cons: I could see the house had some fixes before we arrived, based on some other customer feedback. I still believe the pillows are old, bed was not comfortable. Linens are old too but well...is the beach so I guess that is ok as long as they are clean. Some cracks on the walls too. For me what is really BAD is the toilet, it was dirty with a stain that shows that appropriate cleaning has not been done there so make me wonder about the whole house cleaning.
Thank you Karolina for taking time to write a review. The stain in the toilet is from the well water. We have an excellent cleaning staff. Brian is looking for a product that will remove the well water stain.
Best time in Hermosa I have ever had. House needs a little work but overall for 100 dollars a night you can not beat it anywhere. The A/C blew so cold we had to turn it off at night. The kitchen had everything to get by. We cooked every day . I would recommend this place to all my friends
Looked better in pictures
We arrived and noticed immediately that the deck and handrail are in dire need of repair. You can see through cracks in the door. We went to lock up our passports in the safe as recommended by the owner and the key didn't work. Our son opened the safe with a random key. By evening, we realized the beds have not been replaced since 1995. That was the BIGGEST DRAG. My husbands back went out due to the terrible mattress and he spent nights on the couch or on a different mattress (equally as old) on the floor. The couch has holes in it as well. There is not a comfortable place to sit really in the house at all. The outside furniture was broken as well on the back deck. After seeing a large brown snake on the deck, we checked the bracing of the house and found holes that go through the floor and into the room where our kids were sleeping. The area of Hermosa is beautiful and peaceful. The bungalos are in a safe area. There is a security guard that stays overnight and walks around. There is no concern for safety what so ever. However, I would recommend renting through Brian and not through a private owner. We met other people who rented as we did and that home lost power and had even more issues of neglect. Brian was a great help and offered us an air mattress to use. He made reservations for our activities which gave discounts! He has been in CR for a long time and is a great reference. Beware, the beach is for surfers and strong swimmers. It is not a place for kids to swim. Jaco beach is great for families and kids. It is a quick 5 min drive.
I emailed the owner to inquire on policy after day one as we seriously considered leaving and got no response. Once we had the other mattress, we toughed it out.
I am so sorry the bungalow did not meet your standards. In September 2017 received a 5 star review. I was not aware of the issues. I will be working with Brian to make sure these issues are repaired and the couch and mattresses replaced. We will be vacationing at the bungalow in February to make sure everything is in excellent condition.
Just returned from our trip to the beach house. We have repaired and replaced the things you suggested Laura. Thank you! I will be posting updated photos onsite.
