Avid travelers, we longed for a place to call our escape form the stressors of daily live. Once we saw Costa Rica, we fell in love with its natural beauty. Equally impressive is the locals. Funny, charming, welcoming and most endearing, we have made many good friends we now call family. From the beaches, to the mountains, there is an amazing array of nature to explore, enjoy and remember for a lifetime!

Aileen purchased this house in 2003

Located on the Central Pacific Coast, we are only a one and a half hour drive from Juan Santa Maria International Airport (San Jose Airport-SJO) and only ten minutes south of the bustling town of Jaco. Our cozy cottage is minutes away from several local beaches, restaurants and tour operators. Go ziplining through the rainforest canopy, explore the beaches, and enjoy the comforts of home amid the wild, natural beauty of Costa Rica!

Lying in the patio hammock, you can forget the concept of time! Early morning coffee on the front porch with the Scarlet Macaws overhead making their daily journey to the ocean, one can easily shed layers of stress... and your day has just begun!

COCONUTS, IGUANAS, AND GOOD TIMES

  • 5 of 5
My travelling partner and I had the great pleasure of staying at Fritz and Aileen's beautiful property in Playa Hermosa for a month and a half. Much of our time was spent on their spacious porch, enjoying the garden and the wildlife it attracted. The house was immaculate, neatly decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom was perfect and the kitchen was well equipped. Couldn't have stayed at a better casa. We also loved the chill surfer vibe Playa Hermosa attracted. It was also a great base for exploring the South Pacific coast. Do ask Fritz and Aileen about their other property, Rancho Tranquilo. We had the immense pleasure of staying there for another month and a half and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's well worth the trip!! Pura vida.

PERFECT SURFING TRIP/HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
The wife and I are avid surfers, that is why we are married! We wanted the best possible surfing we could get at a budget price and Costa Rica proved more than we could have dreamed. This home was beautiful and had more than we could have ever wanted as all we needed was the outdoor shower and chair hammocks. The wireless internet allowed us to keep in contact with family and friends back home, though we didn't use it after the first day except for wave forcasting. The location is perfect for those wanting to surf Playa Hermosa and not deal with the crowds of Jaco. We literally surfed for 5 days straight, all day! This area still has places where you will be the only ones out and the waves are extrodinary. We had 3 perfect days of 5-6ft waves and then a south swell showed up with heights in the 10-12ft range. The beach breaks around the area do tend to closeout at that height but we still went out for our dawn sessions to surf by ourselves. We went to a point break (only a gorgeous 1 hour drive from the house) called boca barranca for our afternoon/evening sessions during the swell to find perfect long lefts. I think we can guarantee that they were the best waves of our lives and we lived in hawaii for a while. I say that because we are goofy footed and we surfed some of the longest waves of our lives by ourselves for at least 1 hour every session. We didn't do any sightseeing or activities besides surfing though I do recommend pulling over at the crocodile bar and walking out on the bridge to see real costa rica wildlife. Every time we came back from the beach the warm real wood furniture of the house greeted us along with an iguana that lives next to the entrance gate. We will be turning this into a yearly trip and hope to return to this house until we can afford to buy our own! Also, the more famous and even longer point break pavones is only 4 hours away from the house so we still have much to do!

Special thanks to Aileen for opening up your home to us and the groundskeeper Carlos who greeted us at the door even though we were 5 hours late arriving due to rental car mix ups. The Ticos are an amazing people and we were welcome wherever our 1st grade spanish took us. No obligations just Pura Vida!

PURA VIDA!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home! We had beautiful weather and nice waves in the heart of the rainy season and could not have asked for a more wonderful first vacation together. We already miss swinging on your front porch and watching the sunrise with our Costa Rican coffee! We really enjoyed your guide to CR and list of local favorites---they are now our favorites as well! Everyone in Hermosa was so hospitable (including Carlos!)....Thanks again and PURA VIDA!

VACATION AUGUST 2010

  • 4 of 5
This is a cute, comfortable cottage to relax in. We were in Costa Rica for a week in August and enjoyed the stay. Close to town, fishing and zip lines! Aileen was very helpful and has lots of info on Costa Rica. I would recomend a vehicle larger than a Yaris due to road conditions.
We would stay at the cottage again! Thanks for everything!
