THE JUNGLE HOUSE is an outstanding destination for those seeking at the comforts of a home, amid the wild, natural beauty of Costa Rica!

Location:

THE JUNGLE HOUSE is located just 5km (3 mile) from Playa Hermosa (Hermosa Beach).

Located on the Central Pacific coastline, Playa Hermosa is just ten minutes south of Jaco Beach (Playa Jacó).

THE JUNGLE HOUSE is only 1 ½ hours from Juan Santa Maria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica.

If you are planning to drive from the airport, the new highway will take you on an enjoyable trip with amazing views of the mountains and down to the beach. We will provide you all the directions to get to your destination.

Attractions and activities:

Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.

In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants and a couple mini markets. We recommend VIDA Hermosa Restaurant. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!

In Jaco (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from, casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops… etc…

Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch, as you watch the monkeys jump from tree to tree around you. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the river (about 10 min drive down the road).

About Chris & Mièle

We moved to Costa Rica over 15 and 25 years ago respectively. We love it here ! And we want to share it with you.

Chris & Mièle purchased this Cottage in 2010

Why Chris & Mièle chose Playa Hermosa

Our properties have a little of everything. It´s nice to be close from town but not in the middle of it. It´s also located just a few minutes from the beach. And very secure. It´s perfect to enjoy nature.

What makes this Cottage unique

It´s all about the feeling ! It´s hard to describe. It´s like having a suite in the middle of the jungle ! We also have a beautiful canopy bridge on the property just a few meters away, where sometimes you can see the monkeys play in the morning and afternoon !

                                                                This place was incredible. Chris and Miele were so kind and helpful. The place was a little difficult to get to but you get used to the steep drive. I would highly recommend. It was so cool to hear the sounds of the jungle at night.

                                                                PEACE AND QUIET IN ABUNDANCE

                                                                RICHARD M.

                                                                Peace and quiet in abundance. The view from the deck was soothing, especially with a cup of coffee or an adult beverage of choice. The unit for the most part was as advertised, however, the lack of availability of hot water was a major downer. Had 6 hot showers, 28 cold, this I believe should have triggered a refund of some sort to compensate for the lack of hot water. The kitchen was well stocked, and everything worked. The living room furniture is in dire need of replacement, as well as the rugs in the living room and dining room. The dining room chairs could use some cushions. As we like to eat outdoors, a bistro type table would be nice where the metal chairs are. Hearing the birds, monkeys, and the animals we could never spot but hear was a definite plus. In the VRBO description, it makes it sound as if the unit had a washer and dryer, as well as a bbq grill, not so. As making your guests aware that a 4 wheel drive vehicle was necessary, was spot on, no mention of the terrible road leading to the complex. We treated our house as if were our own, and hope we left it better than we found it. Dakota did all in his power to ensure that all was well. All in all a great trip to a beautiful country. Sorry we were not able to meet and for Chris and I to compare broken bone stories. You are indeed fortunate to have created your own small piece of paradise.

                                                                The property was amazing ! Loved it! So amazing waking up to the monkeys and frogs etc.

                                                                Dakota their son was very helpful

                                                                Would definitely stay here again. Such a great experience to stay in the jungle for a couple days

                                                                Excellent!!

                                                                Nikkie S.

                                                                The jungle house was very clean and the view was unbelievable. Chris and Mieles daughter, Kaya helped us out in there absense and she made us feel incredibly welcomed. I recommend anyone to stay here! Perfect for a couple days with girlfriends or a little two day getaway with your significant other. The hill is NO joke though! I recommend going through Adobe Car Rental. They were great and were able to provide us with a 4x4 that was great for our trip to the jungle house.

                                                                Wonderful stay at the Jungle House/amazing grounds

                                                                Jan C.

                                                                The stay at this home was over-the- top & above our expectations! The owner/designer has impeccable taste in style and furnishings. Our Jungle House adventure was complete with monkey (bananas are very helpful), butterfly, frog, leaf-cutter ants and toucan sitings. We enjoyed the swinging bridge and mornings on the deck overlooking the gorgeous valley and beach beyond.

                                                                Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave. It is a beautiful and quiet beach.
