OCEANVIEW HOUSE IN GATED BEACHFRONT COMMUNITY OF HERMOSA PALMS

Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Whether your idea of a vacation is one chocked full of adventure or one where you can just kick back and relax, Casa Cobia is your ideal home away from home. Located in Hermosa Palms - an exclusive gated community with 24/7 security, Casa Cobia is just steps away from the world famous surfing breaks of Playa Hermosa and from the community pool where you can watch iguanas basking in the sun and scarlet macaws soaring above while you await the spectacular sunset over the ocean.

Hermosa Palms is situated next to a wildlife reserve and protected turtle nesting area and between two of Costa Rica's most famous natural conservation areas: Manuel Antonio National Park and Carara Biological REserve. A variety of supermarkets, gift shops, casinos, restaurants, and night clubs can be found just minutes away in the town of Jaco.

For the passionate angler, renowned Los Suenos Marina, your gateway to world-class bill fishing, is a mere 15 minute drive.

With over 3200 square feet of living space, Casa Cobia is tastefully furnished and has all the modern conveniences that give it that "comfort of home" feeling. The downstairs has two bedrooms - one with a queen bed, one with two twins that can be converted into a king - and a full bath with large shower. For the convenience of those who stay downstairs, there is a kitchenette with stove top, microwave, and refrigerator, bar seating, and an outdoor private shower with hot water. The downstairs living area opens onto a backyard patio with a view of breathtaking tropical foliage. The futon in the living area can be used for extra sleeping space.

Upstairs, you'll find the main kitchen, dining and living areas flowing onto the second level terrace with its built-in grill for outdoor entertaining. The fully equipped kitchen has awesome views - of the mountains from the window - of the ocean looking over the cook top island. A custom table made from native wood and a built-in buffet add to the ambience of delectable dining.

A king bed, sitting area with chaise lounge, and adjoining bath with double sinks and oversized shower are attractions of the upstairs master suite. Bamboo furniture in the master suite adds to the tropical feel.

When stealing away for that afternoon nap or hosing "Happy Hour" and sunset viewing, the third level terrace is the perfect retreat.

DISAPPOINTING HOUSE

  • 1 of 5
In our view, this house is not in a satisfactory condition for rental. We believe the advertising for the home is misleading, and are upset that this lack of disclosure and honesty has resulted in a loss of our enjoyment of our vacation.

Here are the specific problems with the house that were substandard:

· Unpleasant smell just outside front door; rotten smell or sewage.

· Strong mildew/mold smell inside house, worse on first floor.

o Daughter got respiratory illness.

· Air conditioner not working in twin room - needed repair

· Neither shower worked - needed repair.

o After repair master shower still came out as trickle

· Walls dirty and scuffed - need paint

· Not very clean in some areas; laundry, master bedroom closet

· Rugs in bathrooms dirty, turned feet black when walking on after shower

· Barbecue area dirty and hard to use barbeque

· Very little patio furniture - 3 old plastic chairs for use on 2 outdoor patios

· Washing machine and dryer old - knobs covered in sticky substance

· Plumbing under kitchen sink broke - leaked all over cabinet under sink. Unable to use sink for a day while waiting for repair.

· Photo claiming view of ocean from house inaccurate.

· Cords broken on blinds in master bedroom – most inoperable.

We have never had to complain about a vacation rental before and this isn't something we want to spend our time dealing with, but we felt that the problems with this rental were beyond acceptable.
