Overview

Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms / 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8), 100 steps to the beach

This stunning, well appointed 4 bedroom home is located in the gated community of Hermosa Palms. Check the surf off the master bedroom and deck, or let it lull you to sleep after a day of fun. Savour your coffee and breakfast outside under one of the 2 covered terraces. Enjoy the sea breezes while swinging in the hammock on the roof top terrace. Have a barbecue or let someone else do the cooking and dine at a nearby restaurant.

The beach and community pool are a short two minute, 500 foot stroll away. Just carry your surf board with you. Playa Hermosa is one of the most consistent and best surfing destinations in Costa Rica. The site of the 2009 summer world surfing championships. You may also see turtles on the beach laying their eggs. Spotting the Scarlet Macaw parrots in the almond trees is a daily event, usually at 6am or 4 pm.

Your private beach home is just 7 minutes away from the town of Jaco. In Jaco you will find numerous restaurants, shops, banks, grocery stores, car rentals, pharmacies and plenty of night life including casinos.

For a real thrill don't forget the Zip lines just outside of town.

You're only 45 minutes from the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. This park has monkeys, parrots and other wildlife. There are great eateries along the way with spectacular clifftop ocean views.

Just a 15 minute drive north you will find the 5 star Marriott Los Suenos Resort, which offers golf, tennis,shops, fine dining, spa and marina, or continue along another 5 minutes and treat yourself to sunset cocktails at Villa Caleta's. This will be unforgettable.

The airport in San Jose is less than ninety minutes away with a newly opened highway. Rental car pickup, taxi or van can be easily arranged including a driver. Just step out of the airport and let someone else do the driving.

This spectacular tropical beach community of Hermosa Palms is noted for its ideal location and friendly atmosphere. Close to the town of Jaco, yet blessed with 5 miles of uncrowded beach and endless surf. Your ideal place to decompress from life's pressures.

About Tim Van Zoost

My wife and I first discovered the beauty and friendly relaxed culture of Costa Rica in 2004.

Tim Van Zoost purchased this house in 2007

Why Tim Van Zoost chose Playa Hermosa

We rented many condos and homes nearby and then happened to find Hermosa Palms and rent in this community. Our intention was to build elswhere, but the specatular beach life and community of Hermosa Palms quickly changed our minds.

What makes this house unique

Long walks on a mostly empty beach other than a few surfers enjoying themselves, offered more than we could ever have dreamed for.If you are a bird watcher then you found the right spot. Parrots, pelicans, hummingbirds and a hundred more species are there to see. When you need ammenities or a night out for dining its at your fingertips. No long drives just to get the basics. Your precious vacation time is left for what you want to do. Relax and enjoy your self.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tim,



We had a wonderful visit with our son and your house was lovely.. He really appreciated being "spoiled", and he posted pictures of the plush house to his sister and some of his friends. Playa Hermosa was beautiful and Hermosa Palms a great community. It was easy to get to, safe and yet utterly beautiful. I hope we can come back during my son's next break, as he is hooked on surfing!



Ingrid was delightful,



Take care,

Thank you Tim,

Having spent past several years going south and cruising I must say that we have never experienced anything quite like your lovely home and the beauty of Hermosa Palms. The home itself is well laid out and very comfortable. The only issue we had was with a sink drain and that was handled promptly. This community is truly a magical place with a monkey to eat from your hands in the back yard to the beautiful macaws making thier daily 3.30 pm flight around the pool. We had coffee every morning around 6.30 am at the tiki hut poolside looking out over a spectacular beach scene. Days spent exploring the country side and evenings on the beach applauding the most glorious sunsets. It truly is that beautiful.. The people that we met there were mostly resident owners but without exception they made us feel very welcome. I can not say enough about our personal experience. Be aware though that this may be habit forming, as we were making plans for a return before we left. Perhaps an extended stay of lets say a month next time. What do you think Tim, can you part with this little slice of heaven for that long for us?

Again many thanks

We look forawrd to our return.

My friends and I really enjoyed our time in this beautiful home! The pictures online do not do it any justice...this property is incredibly beautiful, well equipped, very spacious, clean, safe, and completely comfortable. The resort style pool and beautiful private beach made us feel like we were at a vacation resort. There is also an office located near the pool where you can rent surf board and boogie boards. There is a local fisherman who stops by and sells his fresh catch if you want to cook at home...if not, there are plenty of amazing restaurants a short drive away. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans, cups, blenders etc are stocked at the house. We really enjoyed "Poncho," the friendly neighborhood monkey who would visit our backyard for bananas. Both the owner and the property manager were very good communicators and helped us plan the remainder of our vacation. We would definitely consider staying at this home the next time we visit Costa Rica.

Hermosa Palms

Two couples rented this home for a week in Playa Hermosa. Wonderful home and Ingrid set up our monkey tour with a very favorable rate, dinner brought in one night from her recommendation, which was one of our best meals, and sunset at Villa Caletas. Pool and beach right their and great food at pool. Fish tacos the best. I am sure anyone who visits this home would have a wonderful experience. Tim was very easy to work with and very quick return of deposit. Ingrid most helpful.

Magical time in Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an incredible time in this beautiful, well appointed home! The furnishings and atmosphere were comfortable and elegant, and the beach was just steps away. We spent our days at the huge, perfect temperature pool and swim up bar/cafe, enjoying delicious fish tacos, cocktails and fresh coconut juice. The neighborhood where the home is located felt like a real community, and everyone was warm and ready to offer greetings and knowledge about the area. The wildlife was amazing, including constant sightings of beautiful birds, iguanas and Poncho, the monkey who visited us every day for his daily snack of bananas. In all the years my family and I have been traveling away for the holidays, we have never had the level of responsiveness and assistance that was provided by Ingrid, our property manager. She helped set us up with a private chef, an incredible monkey boat tour, and gave extremely helpful recommendations for places to eat, and beaches to go to. I can't thank Tim and Ingrid enough for their fabulous hospitality, and would recommend this home for a relaxing and enjoyable family vacation to anyone!
