About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

My husband Stephen and I ,Donna Jarett Nicholson welcome you to our vacation home --relax from the worries and stress of the world. Casa 43 is a home not just a vacation rental and has all of the amenities you would expect to have when you walk into your own house.

Enjoy the tranquility of our tropical villa located in Hermosa Palms on playa Hermosa - a private, upscale gated, 24 hour guarded, exclusive community - on Hermosa Beach. BEST LOCATION, close to the pool and beach. approx. 10 yards .This tropical villa has 2500 square feet of living space and features three bedrooms with a master ensuite, first floor patio with teak dining set and Costa Rican Leather rocking chairs, second floor covered terrace with chaise lounges and rocking chairs ,and a third floor covered terrace with hammocks to watch the surf or a private sunset.

Bedrooms include one king (pillow mattress) one queen (pillow mattress) and two full. ALL *** US mattresses***The large kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and dining. We are constantly updating items in the kitchen from pots and pans to an ample supply of glass red and white wine glasses. We are hands on owners.

The house is wired throughout for wifi with fiber optics in the near future.

The crowning jewel of renting our house is Yonit's Tiki Bar. Our neighbor Yonit ,manages the swim up bar at the Beach Club. Delicious, fabulous, incredible food and drink all made with Yonit's special touch of love, Fish tacos are the best in the world. Then the cocktails.. lava flows, pineapple mojitos, and the list goes on and on.

Our home on Playa Hermosa is a world famous surfing break known for its consistent and excellent waves. Locals insist that Hermosa Beach has head high or better waves 340 days a year. At four miles long, it never gets crowded-better bring a back up board.

Enjoy walking the beach, watching pelicans skim the waves or maybe see a pod of whales surface. There is a variety of wildlife on Hermosa Palms from Scarlet macaws to possums and of course iguanas.

Enjoy the best of two worlds - your private beach at Hermosa Palms or take a 10 minute drive to Jaco where you can dine, shop, visit casinos, or just people watch. Jaco offers a variety of restaurants, ice cream shops, banking, night clubs, bakeries, grocery stores, pharmacies, and of course gift shops.

A 20 minute ride north takes you to Los Suenos Marriott Resort which offers golf, dining, and a marina with charter vessels.

An hour south of Hermosa Palms will bring you to Manuel Antonio-a must see National Park for all visitors to Costa Rica.

A property manager will check you in and assist you with anything you need. The house is wired for high speed internet

Our family had the best vacation that we have had in many years. Hermosa Palms and especially Casa 43 " casa de mi Corazon " was the best. The house has it all from more than enough beach towels to a completely stocked kitchen The property manager Marco was most helpful with checkin and with suggestions for adventure trips.

We will be back soon!! 5 stars*****

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 3 times and will return again. Beautiful house in a beautiful location. House is spacious. Plenty of room for everyone to have some privacy including cool porches upstairs and beautiful garden patio out front. Also has large open living room, kitchen, dining room for everyone to get together. Every appliance and kitchen utensil you'd ever need including gas grill on the patio. Fast WIFI. Cold AC and comfortable beds. Pool just out the front door and the beach just steps beyond that.

Perfect balance of quiet, off the main strip, seclusion and access to great Playa Hermosa and Jaco restaurants and stores. Great location for day trips to other sight-seeing spots or just surf all day out front then swim up to the pool bar for a cool one. Fish tacos pool side in the afternoon are great!

Owners are friendly, no nonsense folks, and will give you great tips to help you enjoy your stay. Can't wait until my next trip!

Rasmussen Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Hermosa Palms and especially enjoyed having such a beautiful home to return to each day from our activities in the area. The neighborhood is a wonderful oasis in the middle of Jaco and Manuel Antonio. My kids enjoyed surfing and we all enjoyed YoYo's Tiki Bar especially her fish tacos!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here twice and will be back again someday. Perfect location within the Hermosa Palms community. The pool and clubhouse is just steps from the front door and the beautiful Playa Hermosa is just steps beyond that. Large comfortable house with all the amenities. This house is great for a boys surf trip, family or multiple family vacation or a ladies getaway. Five minute ride to the shops and restaurants of Jaco and a great location to make various day trips to other areas in CR. There was a nice older gentleman that came knocking on the door some evenings with fresh caught seafood that we cooked on the grill provided on the patio. This place has everything you could ask for....highly recommend it!

Best Rental In Hermosa Palms

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting homes in Hermosa Palms since 2008 and this is the best rental available. The location is perfect. Directly in front of pool and beach. The owners keep this home stocked and in perfect condition. Granite, Tile, Central Heat and Air, great beds and furniture too. Love the covered porch on the second floor directly off the master and second bedroom. Great for Yoga, Naps, Sun and relaxation. Strong WIFI and cable TV with flat screens. I stayed for three weeks in August of 2015 which was my third time renting this home. The owners are a dream to deal with and they have local help for you as well when renting.

Comfortable home steps from huge oceanfront pool and beach. Our group enjoyed surfing and paddleboarding right out front. The house was clean and open with plenty of seating downstairs inside and out. The second floor has an outside patio that was great for reading. Bedrooms are large with crisp white sheets and comfortable. Everything we needed was available in the kitchen. Thanks for a wonderful stay and plan on returning next year if not sooner.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

Home was extremely comfortable for four of us. Amenities made it easy for everyone. Fabulous surfing! Community location is great, but a car is necessary. It's a very short ride to Jaco and ideal for trips to Manuel Antonio National Park, etc. We would stay here again if given the opportunity.
