About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This LUXURY BEACHFRONT home is located on one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica! This home is so close to the beach you can hear and see the spectacular sight of these sought out waves crashing on the beach. You will have the opportunity to enjoy daily strolls or jogs on this beautiful and clean beach or swim in our pool. You can relax and enjoy the breath-taking sunsets each evening.

This AIR CONDITIONED home is less than six years old and is approximately 2,800 square fee. It is located in a new gated development with security.

We also have a 4 bedroom home, 3 houses down (still on the beach) that can be rented for larger groups needing 2 houses. It can be viewed at VRBO listing #60800. There is a same style 3 bedroom home right next to this house with only shrubbery separation us, so you could have up to 16 people between both houses! It's like having two houses on the beach on one large lot with two huge pools. We can send you pictures of the two houses. Just ask. This is a great way for a larger group of people to enjoy famous Playa Hermosa.

The FLOOR PLAN is large and open. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed. The second and third bedrooms have a double and a twin bed in each. For your convenience, there is also a washer and dryer located in the home.

The KITCHEN is spacious, with granite counter tops, and includes a large side-by-side refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc. There is plenty of room to sit at the counter in the kitchen or you may want to enjoy eating out by the pool while watching the waves crash on the beach or the spectacular sunsets. You may want to keep up with what is going on back home with our high speed internet. The house has just been freshly painted May of 2013 if you don't reconize the new exterior color.

To help you get settled in for your stay, we have a wonderful HOSPITALITY professionals to greet you for your check-in and provide a customized welcome basket, maps and brochures tailored to your needs. They can help you with: tours, directions, horse- riding, surf lessons, whitewater rafting, canopy tours, and restaurant recommendations. They will be your contact throughout your rental time.

HANDICAPPED FRIENDLY. The house and yard are handicap friendly. There are no steps and the doors and hallways are wide.

HERMOSA BEACH, where this home is located, is a world-class surfing beach that hosts international competitions. Since the waves can be enormous, surfers from all over the world seek out this beach everyday. Even if you don't surf, it is very entertaining to watch the waves and surfers.

Located at the Northern end of the beach, there are several 'Beach Boy' style bars and restaurants. You can relax, watch the surfers, and enjoy the sunsets.

A great Italian restaurant is right next door.

At the southern end of the beach, is a TURTLE PRESERVE. During September to November, the turtles come and lay their eggs, volunteers come help move the eggs to a safe place. The volunteers take care of the eggs until they hatch. We were able to help release newly hatched turtles into the ocean.

If you are a BEGINNER SURFER or booggie boarder, you will enjoy JACO Beach, which is located to the north only 10 minutes away. The waves here are milder. In addition, you will discover a wide assortment of restaurants, shopping, ATM/banking, internet cafes, nightclubs, bakery, pharmacy, medical services, churches, etc. in this town.

WILDLIFE can be discovered everywhere, even around our houses. Iguanas and geckos can be seen all around. For those with an adventuresome side, crocodile safaris are also available. If you stop by the Crocodile bridge (on your way to Jaco from San Jose) you can see 15-20 crocodiles in the river.

We highly recommend for you to experience a guided CANOPY TOUR! You are hooked up to a cable with the safety of a harness. As you travel along the zip line, you go from one tree platform to the next. It is quite a thrill! One of the best tours is only 5 minutes from the house.

In addition, you can further experience Costa Rica by bird watching, sea kayaking, white water rafting, visit national parks, or relax in the hot spring pools located by the volcano, a 3-4 hour drive.

You can arrange to have your kitchen stocked with food for your arrival or arrange maid/ cooking services.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My ex husband and I are farmers in the central San Joaquin Valley in California. We mostly grow grapes and almonds. His mother is from Costa Rica. We have lots of cousins in Costa Rica. We fell in love with the country and the people. We bought this house when it came up for sale thinking it would be a good investment. We have 2 beach front homes in this area. We come down 4 or 5 times per year and wish we could spend more time in Costa Rica.

Why the Owner Chose Jaco, Costa Rica:
We like this location because it is on the beach and you can hear the crashing waves pound the sand. It is a beautiful beach and always warm to hot. We found farther north up by Tamerindo was very dry and brown during the dry season, not what you are looking for when going to Costa Rica. This area is fairly green even in the dry season. It is only 2 hours from the San Jose airport on paved roads. The house is about 5 to 10 minutes from Jaco. Close enought to go for dinner or shopping, but away from the crowds to enjoy the beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is not just in a beach front comunity. You are only steps away from the sand. Walk past your private pool and cross a little beach acess road and you are on the beach. It will seem like it is your own private beach. Build a bon fire, surf, explore the beach or take long walks on this beautiful beach.
