Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

About Beth & Jack

Hello, from Jack & Beth!

We're both from the midwest USA and currently reside in central Ohio. We're recently retired and we spend all the time we can in Costa Rica.

Beth & Jack purchased this house in 2005

Why Beth & Jack chose Playa Hermosa

We've been drawn to the ocean as long as we can remember...I think most people are. Our attraction to the sea began when we purchased and kept a 40 foot cabin cruiser in Fort Myers Beach, Florida back in the early to late 90's, and we've dreamt of retiring on the ocean ever since. Well, we finally got to retire, but our retirement cruiser, the 'Dolphin', met an untimely death in the Atlantic gulfstream, so we decided to look for something built on dirt (or sand), instead. Fewer water leaks.

We ended up travelling a bit further south than Florida to find something warmer year-round on the ocean, and thankfully landed in Costa Rica, the 'Little Switzerland', on the central Pacific Ocean in a beachhouse that we love. We know you will, too, and we'd like to share it with everyone. Our goal is for all of our guests to have a great vacation, and we'll certainly do our best to ensure that happens! Give us a call, and Pura Vida (roughly translated as 'Life is Good', from Jack & Beth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have stayed here 5 times now.....Casa Baracuda is Beautiful, Clean and Peaceful!!!!!!!.. The Pool is clear and refreshing. The location is PERFECT. Hermosa is very quiet, and beautiful. Jaco is less than 10 minutes away.....Great for night life. The price for the house is less than a "Decent" Hotel, and you have the luxuries of home. We will continue to visit Hermosa and stay at Casa Baracuda!!!!!!!!

Awesome Vacation! Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5
This review is well overdue but I am more than happy to write it. Our family has planned for this trip for quite some time now, and Beth as well as Jack have been nothing but helpful in ensuring that we knew everything from what to do whilst in Jacó to transportation from the airport. The whole process was absolutely wonderful and could not have been any smoother! The pictures that we saw here on VRBO were very accurate on what we witnessed when we arrived (which in all honesty was a huge concern). The location of the home was also spot on as we walked into the backyard only to see the beach! What I enjoyed most about our experience here in Jacó was that we were in an area that was not crowded with tourist, so there was more room for us to experience CR with the natives. Downtown was most lively and we did enjoy the Taco Bar! I most definitely recommend this property to any of my friends or relatives who want to getaway and still stay in a beautiful home as well as area of CR! Thank you Beth & Jack for welcoming us into your fantastic home, when we return to CR we most definitely will look you up again!

rI must write and let you know the our family of 6 just returned from a WONDERFUL weeks stay at Casa Barracuda. The grounds and our "home" for the last week was spectatular. Our family enjoyed the pool and the acess to the beach daily. The younger adults were active in many of the activities offered including surf lessons and ATVing. The older adults were thrilled to sit poolside.

Our home had everything you could possibly need from WIFY to beach towels. The hammock was popular and as were the pool "toys". The kitchen was well stocked and was used daily for the preparation of breakfasts and lunches. We did take advantage of the DELICIOUS choices of restaurants in Jaco. They were excellent and a different dining experience was achieved each night.

There was PLENTY of space for everyone to find some quiet time and yet we used the dining room table for board games. Everyone was very happy with their accommodations - the bedrooms very airly and bright. Two large bathrooms,an outside shower, paddle fans to push the AC made the warm tropical days and nights a pleasure.

Now to the meat of this email. This was truly a WONDERFUL experience for the entire family. The beach, pool and the picture perfect weather made this a vacation to remember. Having someone pick you up and return you to the airport in a country you have NEVER been too was great. The local staff made EVERY effort to make sure that we had all that we needed and was around the property daily. The pictures you view are very accurate and the owners were quick to respond to any and all questions.

Now that the return to home has happened my husband is looking for airfare for next year. All six are in agreement that this was by far the most enjoyable vacation we have had. It was DELIGHTFUL to do what you wanted to do, when you wanted to do it. I can honestly say that WE drove the schedule.

In closing, thank you for a wonderful week in paradise. This was our first experience using this site and i would not hesitate to try this again. I would also recommend this property to family and friends--- it was just that special!!

Great Location, Excellent Staff, Charming Owners

  • 5 of 5
I spent this pass Memorial Day Weekend (2013) at Casa Baracuda. Our party consisted of 3 couples and an infant. The house is spacious, in fact we could have easily brought two more adults with us and would have been totally comfortable. The property managers were great, greeting us upon arrival and providing contact information in the event we needed to reach out. The pool features a section with jacuzzi style jets and is cleaned every morning. The house had all the amenities we needed including internet, cable tv, and a well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, dishes, etc.). I highly recommend this property and the value for the price is a rare find for a beachfront location.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family (two children, ages 23 and 22 and Mom and Dad...ages not necessary:-)) enjoyed the property and all its amenities immensely. Beth and Jack were very helpful from day one when we found the house on VRBO. Marielos, the onsite manager was very helpful upon arrival and Erika helped with excursions. The pool was refreshing after a long day of site seeing and/or body surfing. The surf on the beach is pretty rough for swimming and inexperienced surfers, but we managed to enjoy the water. Our activities included ziplining at Los Suenos, 1/2 day inshore fishing, Manuel Antonio and a late afternoon hike to a waterfall. The people and country are beautiful and we would definitely go back! Thank you Jack and Beth!!

3 adults and 4 teenagers had a blast

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was a success. We went for our kid's spring break week and it was everything both adults and kids wanted. The house was perfect, with air in all rooms, super nice kitchen and everyone had their favorite feature (hammock, grill, upper deck, pool, cable for iPhone to stereo speakers, right on the beach for surfing). The house was as advertised and we were very satisfied. We split our time between hanging out and going to local restaurants and Manuel Antonio (lock your car when parked!) and our favorites: the 10 in one ADR Adventure Tour as well as the intense bungee jumping in Jaco. We would easily go to this house again instead of Hawaii next year.
