LUXURY BEACH HOME IN GATED COMMUNITY /HERMOSA PALMS,

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.

I would love the opportunity to rent your property again ,as the location and amenities were ideal. Thanks again for help making our Costa Rica vacation one of our best trips ever.

Sincerely,

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

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.

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.

This was our second time renting this beautiful home. We spent a wonderful "Fin de Año", as we ticos say, and would definitely recommend it as an excellent, very well taken care-of property. Pictures are so true to reality and Tim and Ingrid were very kind and friendly. Thank you for making our family vacation so special!

SUSIE

This was the best place ever!! Thank you Tim for sharing your home. We were amazed at everything this place has to offer. Ingrid was exceptional at helping us with tours, like zip lining and hikes etc. We had your sushi chef cook Christmas dinner for 12 of us. That was the best!!! Your home is so comfortable. It was great having a full kitchen and dining room. The beds were very cozy too! Miss that cute little monkey too!

BEST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our one-year old daughter recently. We had an amazing time, so great to be able to relax without the pressures of going anywhere. We cooked most meals at the house and spent a lot of time relaxing buy the pool. My husband enjoyed the almost private surf break right outside.The house is immaculate and very well appointed. Everyone is super friendly, the vibes are so good at Hermosa Palms. You really can't go wrong!

We really enjoyed our stay at your home, every thing was better then described. I wanted to thank you for all the information you supplied us with. Since it was our first trip to Costa Rica it came in handy. The Security was outstanding and the beachside pool just steps away was like living in paradise.

BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time during our month's stay here. We had beautiful sunsets every day fot the entire month. There are decks on the 2nd & 3rd floor of this home, in addition to the patio on the 1st floor. The 2nd floor deck has lounge chairs, great for relaxing with a good book. We also loved the 3rd deck with its lovely breezes and great view of the Pacific Ocean, We sometimes ate breakfast on that deck, or played cards, and at times we had a visit from a cute little Monkey named Poncho. If you like fish, there is a man named, Victor, who will come in the evenings and ring the doorbell and will have fresh fish caught that day, including Mahi Mahi, Lobster and Shrimp. We bought some a few times and cooked in on the great Grill that is on the Patio! Wonderful, if you want to eat home instead of going out. There are 2 of our favorite Restaurants close by, about a 5 min. drive to Rt. 34. They are: Villa Hermosa, and down a little further is Jungle Surf. Both have breakfast, lunch and Dinner at reasonable prices. While staying here we went zip lining, went on a monkey tour with the father of the monkeys, horseback riding to a mud spa and went on a crocodile tour. All great adventures.
The home is beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable; and the beds were very comfortable which makes for a good night's sleep.
We highly recommend this home, and hope to be back in the future!
