Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR/ 2 BA Sleeps 6

Located in the quiet neighborhood of Opera Salvaje, this newly built modern-style, three-bedroom house in Playa Hermosa is perfect for family and friends. It is located in a quiet, charming neighborhood, but just minutes from the beach and all the activities you could want. Whether you are looking for a quiet vacation, or one filled with many activities, Casa Binny is the perfect place for both. From the minute you enter this casa you will feel at home.

The spacious and comfortable house features high ceilings with beautiful wood beams. There is a wonderful fully equipped open kitchen, large comfortable living room, dining area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, full laundry room and garage. The master bedroom has a walk in closet and a sliding door leading out to the deck and pool.

The private pool is surrounded by a large terrace, and beautifully landscaped garden, complete with outside tables, chairs and chaises making it the perfect spot to relax and entertain. The garden has year round flowering trees and plants and an outside shower. The neighborhood is named Opera Salvaje, which in English means Wild Opera. As you sit by the pool listening to the many birds you will see why it got this name. Our neighborhood is unique in that we offer excellent drinking water because we have a deep well.

You many find yourself wanting to stay and enjoy a book by the pool, but there are many activities you can do that are right in the neighborhood, including mountain bike trails, and hiking to beautiful waterfalls. There is also a yoga retreat right next to our neighborhood with classes and massages by appointment.

You are only a couple minutes away from many restaurants, bars and beaches here in Playa Hermosa. The highlight of the day is walking along the beach watching the magnificent sunset. The larger town of Jaco is a 10 minute drive and there you will find beautiful beaches, shopping, many restaurants, pharmacies, ATM's, farmer's markets and much more...anything you need.

Los Suenos is a 20-minute drive and there you will find golfing, and world-class sport fishing excursions.

In an hour you can be in Manual Antonio National Park, with its amazing beaches, hiking and wildlife tours.

Now that the new highway is finished, you can get to the house in just over an hour from the Juan Santemaria Airport.

There are so many activities that you can do as you will see below, and we are more than happy to help you find what you are looking for. We can assist in arranging tours, provide you with directions to various waterfalls around our area, as well as offer recommendations to local events such as concerts and art exhibits.

Hi, my name is Binny Silverman the owner of the house. I came to Costa Rica in 2005 with my children to vacation and surf. We all fell in love with the country, the people and especially this special area- Playa Hermosa.

Kelie Limehouse is my property manager and will help you will any questions you may have. If you wish to speak with me directly about the house, she can give you my personal email.

Kelie Limehouse purchased this house in 2008

The community where the house is located is named Opera Salvaje. In English that means Wild Opera. It was named after the birds you hear and see flying all day. The house is on a corner and is very private and peaceful.We are so happy to be in this neighborhood with it's beautiful, quiet and relaxing surroundings. I am sure you will love it too.

I fell in love with this house the minute I walked in because of it's spacious and beautiful design. The ceilings are high with fantastic beams. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are large with great shelves and storage. The master bedroom also has a large walk in closet.

I love the open design of the kitchen, dining room and living room, which has a pull out couch for extra sleeping space.

There is also a large garage and a laundry room.

I have furnished the house so that my family and guests will feel comfortable and relaxed.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need to cook and enjoy the local fresh fish, fruit and vegetables available in the area.

Every room has air conditioning and fans.

But probably what made me fall in love with this house was the huge back covered deck. There is outside furniture and a beautiful large teak wooden table and chairs. You will really love eating here, playing games and spending time with family and friends around this great table.

I know you will relax and enjoy many hours in this house, on the back deck and in the pool.

WONDERFUL ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this home over spring break this year and had one of our best vacations ever. The home is very comfortable, roomy, clean, tastefully decorated and has anything you might need. The pool was a welcome respite after hot, sunny days as was the covered deck where we spent many midday lazy afternoons chilling. It was nice to feel like we were living in the community rather than secluded on some resort. We enjoyed the amenities of the local area, including the yoga studio not far from the house, great hiking directly off the compound, the beautiful waves and sunsets of Playa Hermosa and the twice weekly surf competitions, and the active Jaco town where we could find anything we needed. We also did zip-lining and exploring in local rain forests-very fun! We definitely appreciated Kelie's awesome local tips and went to many of the restaurants she recommended. We hope to come back to Playa Hermosa and Casa Binny sometime in the future. If the owner ever wants to sell, please let us know. That is how much we enjoyed the area and home!! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

We can't wait to go back!
  • 5 of 5
We have been traveling to Hermosa for vacation for 8 years and this may have been the best trip yet, largely because of the wonderful house they call the "Binny house." There were even fresh cut fronds and flowers in the vase on the table when we arrived! The house was spacious but cozy, beautifully decorated, in a great location, and the pool was fantastic for our two small children (and us too of course!). We had a lazy breakfast every morning on the back porch or at the breakfast bar and then the kids would be begging to get into the pool. There was a portacrib and highchair available, making it that much easier to travel without those bulky things. The neighborhood is very nice and safe and we enjoyed just walking around looking at birds and plants. The proximity to Hermosa and Jaco was perfect for the beach, shopping, and dining. We really appreciated having wifi at the house too for staying in touch at home. We hope to be regular renters here and thank you to the owner and manager for such a wonderful accommodation!!

QUIET AND PRIVATE

  • 4 of 5
Great house. Awesome yard, pool, patio. Good location for the beach and local bar/shops. Nice modern house with all you would expect ... could do with a little more kitchen equipment if you want to cook. Very quiet and peaceful. The manager Kelli is awesome ... even sent me some ice and a beer when I first got there.

Un grupo de amigos estuvimos los primeros días de octubre 2013 en esta muy hermosa casa; la misma es súper acogedora con todas las comodidades por lo que realmente no se ocupa casi nada; la misma está súper cerca de playa hermosa en jaco a menos de 5min, además es muy cerca de San Jose a solo 1 hora con 30 min, las personas encargadas son sumamente responsables, serias y muy cordiales, recomiendo plenamente este lugar para disfrutar de unas vacaciones Jorge Trejos.

THOUGHT I WAS IN MY OWN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This place was soooo comfortable I felt like I was home. We couldn't have imagined we would find accomodations like this in other than a 4-star hotel. Clean and well-furnished and plenty of room for all six of us; a spacious kitchen that opened out onto the large patio so we were treated every morning to the calls of the many birds as we breakfasted. Lounging by the large pool after breakfast , we almost didn't want to take the short hike to the waterfall, or even go to the beach which was a short driving distance away. The many quality restaurants in the area afforded us a delicious change from our own cooking if we decided to venture out. Also, surfing (of course) horseback riding, zip lining, all were available without driving great distances. All-in-all, a perfect vacation spot, one that we will recommend to friends and family and a place to which we will certainly return! Thank you, thank you!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT TIMES

  • 5 of 5
7 of my friends and I spent a week at this house over New Years this year and had a really wonderful time. The property is spacious, nicely appointed, and perfect for a relaxing vacation. The bedrooms were comfortable and airy, each with their own AC and ceiling fan. The house was very clean, and everything worked properly. The very private backyard is beautiful, quiet, and a great place to spend afternoons hanging by the pool, reading books, and taking naps. We even got to see macaws up in the trees hanging out in the evenings above the house. Also, since the house is in a secure community, with many full time residents, we felt very safe.

The kitchen was perfect for cooking large meals with big, modern appliances and a very open feel. There is a huge wooden dining table on the patio that fit us all comfortably, and was the perfect place to enjoy conversation and games after meals.

Playa Hermosa and Jaco are both great towns. Hermosa is much quieter but with great little surf-inspired restaurants, and very relaxed vibes. We really loved Jungle Surf for dinner. Best tuna I've ever had! Jaco has everything you could want from modern fine-dining to locals spots to nightclubs. Its great to have it only 10 minutes away so whenever you need groceries, shopping, or just some more action, its right there. We would also go hang out on Playa Hermosa every evening to watch the surfers and the unbelievable sunsets. It is really remarkably beautiful out there.

If I come back to Costa Rica I definitely plan on staying here again. We really had the best time, and this was such a perfect home base for the week.
