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 House in 2010
Why Chris & Mièle chose Playa Hermosa
THE POINT HOUSE has 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 House unique
All 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dinning and living room with beautiful ocean view ! While tucked in the the jungle, but only 5 km from the beach and 12 km from a large selection of great restaurants, a few casinos, bakeries, grocery stores and much more. We also have a beautiful canopy bridge on the property just a few meters away, where the monkeys sometimes play in mornings and afternoons !

Pura vida in the treetops!
The Point House is magnificent! The views are stunning, and you get to see monkeys, iguanas, butterflies, hummingbirds a and macaws daily. The drive up is certainly an adventure but worth every minute to reach the house. Our host was Dakota and he was very sweet and chill. We appreciated Elizabeth taking care of the house every day. I strongly recommend it!
Went here with a small group of friends for my 30th birthday, and it did not disappoint!! It was everything I could have wanted, the pictures don't do it justice! This mountain top home will have you feeling a world away, with beautiful scenery and wildlife all around. It's completely relaxing and I would recommend it for anyone! I hope to return in the future. Chris and Mielle have a beautiful property, thanks for sharing it with us!
Amazing Property !!!
Pictures don 't do this property justice. The property is well maintenance and the employees that live near the property were a great help. If instructions are followed properly no one should have any issues getting to the property. The most amazing view I've ever seen is what i believe this property has. The architectural design of this property in my opinion was amazing and to know that this was the owners work lets you know the vision they have. The home is perfect for families, couples, etc. I am already planning another trip to Costa Rica and looking forward to staying here again. This home is the definition of what they say is "Pura Vida".
Costa Rica Unlimited is amazing
I chose to spend my 40th birthday with the folks from CRU and a few good friends. This place is amazing and the staff goes over the top to make you feel welcome. The accommodations do not get any better. If you are looking for a world class top notch motorcycle adventure or just a relaxing vacation in one of the best spots in Costa Rica, call these guys
This place is AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL !!!
WOW doesn't give this place enough credit. The house is great, beautiful and spacious. We had a wonderful time here and got to see some monkeys, toucans, geckos as well as the local doggies (Bullet, Diesel and Pachanga). We went fishing 2 half days out of Quepos and had fun catching rooster fish, snook, snapper and seabass and even had one cooked (grilled, blackened and fried) at the local marina that evening (#delicious). The owners were more than helpful and provided good local information. They were totally spot on with the requirement of a 4WD vehicle. The climb up to the point house is steep in a few spots, but not overwhelming. Overall this is a place I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in CR. I cannot thank the owners enough for their hospitality. Chris and Miele are wonderful hosts.
Wow, what a great review ! Thank you so much Mr. Bracey. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Super nice to have you at the house, and we are very happy to know you enjoyed it so much. We are glad you got to see some of the animals, and also got some great fishing !
Take care :)

Costa Rica Unlimited
Like most people I spend 60 - 70 hours a week for 50 - 51 weeks working to be able to play for 1 week. My time is precious, the last thing I want to do is squander money and time.
When my wife told me then showed the video of Costa Rica Unlimited, I thought this is exactly the kind of trip our family needs. We are avid outdoorsman who love to ride. Needless to say we arrived with very high expectations.
If you are reading this I expect it's because you have an interest in Costa Rica and maybe interested in riding - this is the real deal. The staff is extremely professional, they will gauge your riding abilities and taylor day trips accordingly.
I can go on about this trip as it's definitely been a highlight for me and my family but let me summarize by saying we have already planned our next trip back and can't wait to be there!
The Costa Rican's have a saying "Pura Vida!" Nothing could be more true.
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. Between the months of July and December, it also becomes one of Costa Rica´s sea turtle nesting site. Where lucky nature watchers can see these lovely beasts; coming ashore at night, to lay their eggs on secluded beaches. Please remember you will NEED a 4x4 vehicle to stay at this property. There are many places to visit and all kind of activities to do just a short drive away from our properties. Since this a very touristic area, you can find many activities to enjoy outdoors with family and friends. We definitely recommend the CANOPY TOUR, it´s a very cool experience to be traveling across the jungle from tree to tree ! We also recommend ATV Tours. You can choose from a couple of hours to a full day tour. You will be traveling on dirt roads in the mountains, thru little rural towns. If you prefer to be a little more adventurous, and if you have motorcycle experience. We also own COSTA RICA UNLIMITED: The best Dirt bike tour company in Costa Rica! We get riders from all over the world. In case you might be interested to join us on the best ride of your life ;-) One thing is for sure, if you choose this activity, you will enjoy some of the most amazing views around. If you want to walk around nature and do some wildlife viewing, we recommend 'Manuel Antonio National Park' (about 45 min south), you will see all kinds of animals, and don´t forget your swim suit, there is also a amazing white sand beach, and some very good restaurants! Horseback riding is also a very good option. Talk to our good friend Andrea, she will be happy to take you for an astonishing ride on the beach, rivers and jungle. 100% fun Guaranty ! Restaurants / drinks and others: In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants. We recommend VIDA Hermosa. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean! In Jacó (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 (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops… Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, toucans and the macaws flying overhead. You will probably also see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree, around THE POINT HOUSE.
