Playa Hermosa Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The property is situated directly on the Pacific coast with a beautiful white sand beach called Playa Coco spanning nearly one mile directly in front of your Villa. Playa Coco is one of the most spectacular beaches in Nicaragua.

This property is exactly what you need to unwind on a secluded beach! Your spacious 2000+ square foot luxury Villa offers unparalleled proximity to a world class beach - and it is an END UNIT with the most natural light within this small development. Only local materials were used to produce this magnificent place, which gives it a unique feel that sets it apart from many other vacation homes in Nicaragua. The furniture is made from local wood and custom made. The unit comes fully furnished with all the amenities you could want, including a flat panel LCD TV, Satellite TV, superior sound system, wireless internet connections, fully stocked kitchen and more!

The rooftop deck, master bedroom deck and living room patio are all facing the beach so you can enjoy the sun setting on the Pacific Ocean while you reflect on the natural beauty of Playa Coco. Local trees provide natural shade during the day and privacy. You will find that with the onsite pool and the ocean literally steps away from the front door, you won’t want to leave this tranquilo life!

If you choose to venture outside of your Villa, the most popular tourist destination in Nicaragua is just 25 minutes to the north - San Juan del Sur. In SJdS, you will find many shops, great restaurants, and a mix of locals and tourists enjoying the town. Closer to your Villa is The Wildlife Reserve La Flor where you can see Olive Ridley turtles. If you come at the right time, you can witness thousands of turtles laying eggs, or better yet - newly hatched turtles crawling back to the ocean! You will also find that some turtles use Playa Coco as their local grounds.

Your vacation Villa is brand new, so come and be one of the first ones to stay here and enjoy Playa Coco. The finishing touches were just completed mid-year 2009!

About Dave Shiba

My wife Karen and I were recently married and we live in San Francisco, California. We have always wanted to own a home in a foreign country and now our dream has come true!

Dave Shiba purchased this condo in 2008

Why Dave Shiba chose Playa Hermosa

We love to travel and fell in love with Nicaragua while traveling down there in 2006. Playa Coco is one of the most spectacular beaches in Central America and we really enjoy that it's both close enough to town (San Juan del Sur) yet far enough such that it provides for a virtually private beach our home overlooks.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is just minutes away from La Flor Reserve where the Olive-Ridley turtles come by the thousands to lay their eggs. Our home is beach front and you can walk to the ocean in literally seconds. You will also witness some of the most fantastic sunsets over the ocean on a daily basis. This is truly paradise!

Beautiful condo on a deserted beach!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and his parents stayed in this condo for three days in March. The condo itself was in excellent condition, nicely laid out, and quite lovely. My father-in-law kept commenting on the quality of the materials used. The master bedroom has a balcony that looks out onto the beach. We were steps from the beach, which was gorgeous and practically deserted. There were a few families and couples, but only a few. The complex also has a really nice pool from which I watched the sunset over the beach one night. The sunset was stunning all three nights. Once it gets dark, there are little sand crabs running all over the beach which won't bother you but are fun to "hunt" with a flashlight. There are also tons of little hermit crabs crawling about on the nearby rocks during the day and at the edge of the property at night. It is a perfect place for families, especially those with little ones who love critters. Getting out to Playa el Coco is a bit of a trip from San Juan del Sur--about 30 minutes down an only sometimes paved road, but that's the only way to arrive at such a beautiful unspoiled beach, right? The grounds staff were very friendly and helpful. One of the guards even fetched us fresh fish from a nearby town after dark, down the dusty dirt road on his motorbike. We really loved this place and look forward to going back with family.

Beautiful beach. Immaculate property. Perfect getaway. For self-sustainers and independent-minded travelers. Do not look for night-life or urban amenities.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
If you want discos, shopping and bumper to bumper people on the beach, stay away!
If you want to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a world class beach, one of Nicaragua's finest, along with gorgeous flora, fauna and excellent accommodation then Playa El Cooco may be your ticket to paradise.
Stunningly beautiful, the El Coco townhomes were a dream come true. We felt instantly at home, absolutely safe, secure and "lovin it!"
The headman at the el coco townhomes, Janel, went out of his way to make sure our stay was wonderful.
What can I say but "WOW!"
Thanks Dave

Amazing location & condo.

Amazing location & condo.
  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for almost 2 weeks. Our family had 5 adults and 1 child & there was lots of space for everyone. The condo is beautiful & the location ideal. Playa Coco is a quiet beach without many people. It would be a very romantic escape for 2.
You definitely need a rental car. We had a pickup and gave many rides to the locals. It was fun! It takes about 20 mins to get into town. The food in San Juan is great. The restaurants recommended in Lonely Planet were all very good.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I believe the property was lacking in some basic things. There wasn't even salt & pepper. We had to buy our own dish soap and laundry soap as well as toilet paper. I think for the amount your paying you should at least have salt & pepper & dish soap!
Otherwise our stay was great. The workers at the property were all helpful. We will be going back to Nicaragua again!

Owner's Response: Hi Kalina,

Thanks for your feedback! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Playa Coco! There should have been toilet paper and dish soap provided upon your arrival (let me know if that was not the case). Also, we have told the maid service to provide more upon request and it just comes out of our budget. I will make that clear in our contract for future guests and I will talk to our staff to make sure guests are getting what they paid for.

With respect to basics (salt, pepper, condiments, food, etc.), we have an agreement with the staff that they can take whatever they want that is left by guests. We should also make that clear in the contract so thanks for pointing that out! Thanks,

Dave

Near perfection

  • 5 of 5
This was such a better than expected family holiday. The condo was as described and four adults and two teenagers never felt crowded. The beach was pristine and the large waves were so much fun to ride with rafts and boogie boards. ( be sure and take some ) There are rocks to climb and gather shells and even sand dollars. One only needs a bathing suit and coverup to stroll up the beach to the local restaurant that has the best fish sandwiches and the coldest beers. Then go next door for an excellent beach front massage. Zip lining and horseback riding are nearby as well as the Reserve to see and learn about the sea turtles. We were also happy with a cook who went with us to the grocery store in San Juan to choose her favorites to prepare for us. Watching the evening sunsets was an amazing sight either on the beach or relaxing in the pool. All in all you can't beat this for a very memorable vacation. Go soon before the secret is out!!!
