A Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My 3 girlfriends and myself spent 10 days at Casa Barracuda and loved every minute.

Started our mornings on the upper deck watching the ocean and the surfers while drinking our coffees. Everyone from the gardener to Victor, who came by with fresh fish to sell, was

very helpful and pleasant. The location is perfect for many activities and the home is great for relaxing. I would love to go again. Also, want to mention that the owners were extremely helpful before our visit and made us feel very welcome.

Perfect for you surfers out there!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect! All the space you need, a great pool, and 20 feet from one of the most popular surf spots in Playa Hermosa. We wanted to buy the house before we left! We were there for 7 days but wish we could have stayed for a month! The owners were great to work with! We had people come by and help plan excursions for us (waterfall hikes, in house massages, etc.) and all were wonderful! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND paying a visit to Casa Barracuda :)

Very good experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is down a remote road on Playa Hermosa, but surrounded by other homes so that it feels secure. The house has everything you need. It could use a good upgrade on the bedding, but not enough of a downside to complain much. We really enjoyed the stay. The best part was Antonio. He helped set up tours, fishing, etc ...

Great house and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Barracuda had everything we needed to have a great family time. The house is fully equipped, has a nice swimming pool and it is a few steps from the beach. We will recommend this house and will stay again.

Amazing Pool and Beachfront

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent stay at Casa Barracuda. The drive is about 1 1/2 hours from San Jose Airport but worth the drive to be right on the beach and have your private pool. The house and yard are kept very clean by workers and we even had an issue with the AC making noise (but was still working) and someone was sent out immediately. The hosts sent multiple e-mails prior to our arrival with travel tips. I would stay there again without question. It fit our party of 7 comfortably with the 3 rooms. The beach is perfect for surfers and there are multiple restaurants close by.

About Beth & Jack

Hello, from Jack & Beth!

We're both from the midwest USA and currently reside in central Ohio. We're recently retired and we spend all the time we can in Costa Rica.

Beth & Jack purchased this house in 2005

Why Beth & Jack chose Hermosa Bungalows

We've been drawn to the ocean as long as we can remember...I think most people are. Our attraction to the sea began when we purchased and kept a 40 foot cabin cruiser in Fort Myers Beach, Florida back in the early to late 90's, and we've dreamt of retiring on the ocean ever since. Well, we finally got to retire, but our retirement cruiser, the 'Dolphin', met an untimely death in the Atlantic gulfstream, so we decided to look for something built on dirt (or sand), instead. Fewer water leaks.

We ended up travelling a bit further south than Florida to find something warmer year-round on the ocean, and thankfully landed in Costa Rica, the 'Little Switzerland', on the central Pacific Ocean in a beachhouse that we love. We know you will, too, and we'd like to share it with everyone. Our goal is for all of our guests to have a great vacation, and we'll certainly do our best to ensure that happens! Give us a call, and Pura Vida (roughly translated as 'Life is Good', from Jack & Beth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have stayed here 5 times now.....Casa Baracuda is Beautiful, Clean and Peaceful!!!!!!!.. The Pool is clear and refreshing. The location is PERFECT. Hermosa is very quiet, and beautiful. Jaco is less than 10 minutes away.....Great for night life. The price for the house is less than a "Decent" Hotel, and you have the luxuries of home. We will continue to visit Hermosa and stay at Casa Baracuda!!!!!!!!
