ROMANTIC & RELAXING! CLOSE TO BEACH, SURFING, WATERFALLS, & HIKING.

Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 1 bath villa, large pool & close to beach.

This charming villa is perfect for couples or small families looking to enjoy all the amenities of Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica. There are 2 master bedrooms, identical in size (both very large), so perfect for friends or couples. If you're looking for a romantic getaway - this villa is absolutely ideal! Arriving at the villa, you'll be greeted with a bouquet of fresh flowers, along with a welcome basket with local fresh fruit. You'll feel right at home within minutes! Perhaps you want a place to enjoy Hermosa’s beach and surfing, but want all the comforts of home, this is it! The beach is a mile down a flat road, but with a wonderful large pool just step outside your door, you may want to lounge around the pool with a book, or take a walk down to explore the waterfall. The area is very peaceful; you’ll not be disturbed by large, partying crowds. But Jaco is a short drive away and known for the nightlife.

There are four villas in total, so if you're traveling with other couples or family members, and want to be together, but have a little privacy, the other villas can be rented.

Built in Spanish Mediterranean architecture, with 15 foot high ceilings of exposed teak beams and an open floor plan; the villa is perfect for couples looking for a romantic escape or couples with small families, where the pool will be a highlight for the kids! Sleep in the most comfortable pillow-top beds, and wake up to enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace, sitting by the pool and listening to the multitude of birds we have in this area – the neighborhood was named Opera Salvaje, which translated means “Wild Opera”, because of the many birds singing every morning, the development owner said it sounded like a wild opera. The large, perfectly maintained pool is shared by only 4, privately owned villas. We just remodeled June 2012, everything in this villa has been upgraded. All new paint, beds, furniture, handmade tiles, new washer and dryer, new TV, new everything! Our linens are not your standard scratchy linens; we use top quality, soft linens.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you’ll need to prepare fabulous meals, and also looks out over the pool area. And we are one of a handful of neighborhoods in Playa Hermosa offering excellent drinking water! We’re on a deep well which is also filtered. The large, walk in shower is made of slate stone, and completely open like the rain shower.

We'll give you some suggestions for grocery shopping and basic necessities, but one nice thing about this location is everything is easy to get to and safe to explore. And we’re only a mile from the beach on a flat road (the local mountain roads can be difficult to navigate).

All of Playa Hermosa restaurants and bars are within 5 minutes. The following is a list of activities, all within walking distance (meaning less than 5 minutes walking):

There is a yoga retreat about 5 minute walk from the house, in an outside palm thatch rancho, with a stream running next to it. They have various sessions throughout the day and we have great feedback from our guests. The neighborhood has an Olympic size swimming pool, for a small fee you can take swim lessons, or simply exercise with laps.

We have new mountain bike trails in our neighborhood, the first in the Jaco area.

Hiking is very popular amongst our guests; 100 yards from your front door there are numerous trails to explore, including to waterfalls, up mountains, into the rain forest or simply to the beach. Los Suenos Marina with world class sport fishing is about a 20 minute drive. Amazing white water rafting with h2o adventures is about 40 minutes. Ranked one of the best canopies in the area, Canopy Vista Los Seunos, is about a 15 minute drive. One hour drive to San Jose airport, this is the perfect location for a quick getaway with SO much to do!

Please inquire as to monthly rates.

This is one of the safest neighborhoods in the area, and we love the sense of community it offers. And Playa Hermosa is just a great location as it's centrally located, but has some distance to the craziness in Jaco. It's a great spot for physically active people, and of course the surfing is the best!

The nicest thing about this house is that you feel totally safe, and it is decorated with top quality furnishings. From the linens to the kitchen wares, it's very comfortable and functional. And the pool is always perfect!

Best of all worlds!

  • 5 of 5
With two weeks in and around several different parts of Costa Rica with my wife and teenage daughters, I knew I did not want to spend the time and money looking for restaurants 3 times a day. We decided to hotel it up in Samara and Playa Negra and then find a house to rent as a base camp for a week in Playa Hermosa. From previous surf trips with the boys I knew that Jaco is a more of a scene than I wanted my girls to be immersed in 24/7. Playa Hermosa is a mellower alternative but still only 5 minutes from the Jaco action for the few strategic visits we made.

This house provided the best of all worlds for us! It's in a guarded community 2 minutes from the beach. As a family we found Playa Hermosa beautiful but being able to get off the beach scene and into the tranquility of this house at day's end was very welcomed. The place is modern, super comfortable with all the amenities you need from blender to bbq to washer/dryer to wi-fi. There is also A/C in every room if you need it - though we were more than comfortable taking our fresh home-delivered swordfish to the covered patio by the pool right outside the door. Nothing says "you're in the tropics" better than an outdoor dinner with a thunder & lightening show all the while being fanned by the outdoor ceiling fan. (ask Kelie about the guy and his son that deliver all sorts of great fresh seafood to the community and definitely, DEFINITELY, follow her suggestions on the pamphlet in the house regarding Jaco & Hermosa restaurant recommendations).

The daytrip to the Manual Antonio National Park was easy - less than an hour's drive south. Don't forget to check out the town of Quepos right before Manuel Antonio as it is definitely cooler with more good restaurants and places to get a cold beer with a view than the guidebooks give it credit for. It reminded me of Laguna Beach 40 years ago.

Oh, last but not least, relax in comfort with peace of mind knowing that if you need anything or need to know anything Kelie is an easy phone call away on the land-line provided in the house - she's an expat that lives right there in the gated community. It doesn't get any easier than this house!

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for the kind review Chris. We really do have the best of 'all worlds' here in our safe and quiet neighborhood. This particular area of the Central Pacific is such easy access to the parks, fishing, surfing - and the Jaco nightlife is far enough away, but close enough, if you feel the urge (and have any energy after a day of activities). Hope to see you guys again! Kelie

I would definitely rent again!!!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was perfect for my group of 2 adults and 2 kids! The kids loved having the pool right there! Very quiet and clean. Kelie was very helpful and gave us some good tips as to what to do with the kids in the area and we all had a great time. The only thing I would suggest it's to update some of the kitchenware because of the wear and tear (only beneficial to those who are planning on doing their own cooking) but other than that it was just what we needed. Clean affordable place with a pool in a quiet and safe area.

Thank you Kelie!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! I've already upgraded some kitchen items; I'm big on cooking, so that's something I try to keep current. So glad you found all my local's tips to be helpful - I think it makes a vacation so much nicer when you can slip in to where the locals shop and dine. I hope to see you guys again! Kelie

Great Centrally Located Escape

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (two adults and two children ages 7 + 11) stayed in this wonderful retreat for 6 nights. The description of the property is accurate. The house was spotless and well maintained. We cooked many meals in the kitchen that was well stocked with everything we needed. The pool was clean, deep and refreshing. According to the house manager, Kelly, the other units are rarely occupied. Kelly was a great asset. She gave us clear and concise directions, wonderful suggestions on activities, restaurants, beaches and hikes. She even let us know where the locals grocery shop (we were able to get amazing produce for super cheap).

We spent our days hiking (there is a trail on property and my wife was about seven feet away from a troupe of white faced monkeys on her evening hike), horseback riding, swimming, shopping and animal watching. We saw monkeys, crocodiles, sloths, lizards, toucans, macaws and much more.

The house is located outside of the busy tourist town of Jaco. It is a great location, many day trips are within a short drive. The community where the house is located has a 24 hr guard station and is off the beaten path. We felt totally safe. We stayed in three different houses on our trip and this one was the most modern and western of all. We would recommend this house to our friends, family and anyone looking for a great centrally located property. We look forward to staying here again. The smoothies in Jaco are the best!

Pura Vida in Playa Hermosa

Ideal location whether you're a traveling surfer or a family looking to be close to everything Costa Rica has to offer. Very clean accommodations with all the amenities. Kelie is the perfect hostess with years of local knowledge.

Comfort at its best!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful villa. We stayed here for a week for a surf comp and was the perfect spot to relax and concentrate! Away from the night life ( but not too far!) in a secure neighbourhood, we all could not be happier with our stay. The beds were unbelievably comfortable (I miss them!), kitchen perfect, pool amazing. Would love to return one day. Thanks kelie, you were so welcoming and helpful :)

Just 100 meters from the front door starts several hiking trails, up through the rain forest, past waterfalls with amazing views of the ocean and the Nicoya Peninsula. We also have a yoga studio, with amazing instructors, the ocean is a mile away, also a nice walk down a flat dirt road.
