WHY PLAYA HERMOSA?

Hermosa means Beautiful and Playa means Beach. Playa Hermosa is beautiful and aptly named! It’s a long and wide, beautiful beach that boasts beautiful sunsets and waves that are framed by lush palm trees.

*Great for Surfing - 2009 Billabong Surf Competition Location.

*Year Round Waves - One of the unique location in the world with waves the entire year.

*Beautiful 5 Miles of Beach walk - Wide and Long Beach.

*Turtle nesting season is early September through learly November.

*Only 1 1/2 hour from San Jose Airport Runway to the Villa Cachou Runway (as in driveway).

* Beautiful Sunsets.

*Great Base Location to Explore the Area

WHY HERMOSA PALMS?

* Pristine Beach with Easy Beach Access right into the heart of Playa Hermosa

*24 hour Security

*Far away from civilization but 10 minutes from the grocery store, restaurants and shopping.

*Rentals for surfing, boogie boarding and more are available upon request at pool office.

*Huge Swimming Pool for all ages featuring zero depth entry on one end and swim up beach bar on the other.

*Beach Bar offers refreshments: Tropical drinks, sodas and beers as well as fish tacos, burgers and more.

*Pool + Beach in the same view = Peace, Serenity and Happiness

*100 Feet from the ocean. This is important because only 2% of the coastline in Costa Rica is private. Meaning that no homes can be built within 300 feet from the ocean. Hermosa Palms is part of that 2%. Making it one of the few locations to have ocean front HOMES.

WHY Villa CACHOU?

Our Oceanview four Bedroom home offers plenty of room to relax & plenty of room to gather! It is a home that we have taken care of, love on and made sure that our guests will enjoy as much as we do.

*LAYOUT - The home is two floors with an open concept. Upon entry, the living room, dining room and kitchen adjoin to create a big get-together room.

*KITCHEN: The kitchen features top of the line appliances, including a Frigidaire Gallery Series Refrigerator, a new stove and a sanitized and purified water system. In the kitchen are all the amenities to make a fancy dinner including kitchenade mixer, BBQ, utensils, but you are not obliged because you can easily request a cook, go to a restaurant or order pizza in.

*BEDROOMS - This home accommodates 12 guests maximum in four bedrooms (8 adults+ 4 kids). 4 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms - One bedroom on the main floor including queen and twin size beds with a separate full bathroom. There are three bedrooms on the second floor: 1) The master bedroom suite includes a queen-size bed and an additional fold-able twin size bed as well as its own private bathroom including shower/bathtub. 2) Bedroom containing a queen size bed, and Bedroom 3) Ocean view room with a Queen size bed shares spacious full bathroom with bedroom #2. All bedrooms are recently painted, cozy, comfy and well kept.

*SECOND FLOOR ENTERTAINMENT CENTER- The second floor also contains an upstairs TV room featuring a 55” plasma TV with DVD option with several dozens of latest movies and two leather sofas. It’s perfect to send the kids upstairs for a quiet midday rest time or to calm down in the evening from a long day at the beach.

*ROOFTOP TERRACE with amazing sunset views! It’s our favorite for breakfast and happy ours. You can look down at the beach and out over the ocean, it’s an even more amazing view!

*GARAGE - There is a two car garage that is a closed garage and offers entry through the home.

Please take a look at the pictures and ask any questions. We are happy to help you make the right vacation decision for you, your family and friends!

Why jean-jacques cappa chose Playa Hermosa

the view, the ocean, the beach, the amazing nature and...only 1.5 hours from San Jose made Playa Hermosa the best escape and hideaway from city`s noise and pollution. Jaco only 15 minutes away, makes easy the last minutes shopping (for those who decide to cook instead of going to a restaurant). 25 minutes away from Marriott Los Suenos and its first class golf course and marina. One hour from Manuel Antonio most visited National Park.

What makes this house unique

Hermosa Palms is located on only 5% of costarican titled beachfront lots. This makes House 96 a very unique place to relax. There is hardly any resort so close to the beach. Hard to find a place so close to San Jose national airport, main golf course and marina, Jaco's night life. Playa Hermosa held the 2009 Billabong international surf competition.

AMAZING stay at this beautiful beach house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 people, the house is so spacious that more people could have easily stayed there as well. The owner was so helpful from the start till the end, and everything was as promised. The house is beautiful, walking from the beach and the most enjoyable part is the upstairs terrace and deck, where you can enjoy magnificent sunset views or sit and relax.

The house has everything you need and more! We will for sure come back.

Visité este lugar con amigas y lo recomiendo 100%. Espacioso, súper cómodo, full equipado, ni por los platos te tienes que preocupar porque todos corren a lavarlos, claro! en la lavadora para platos. Si no quieres cocinar en el área de piscina te atiende en su restaurante con comidas rápidas una señora súper amable y si deseas sales a la calle principal y te encuentras diferentes opciones de negocios de Playa Hermosa. Nosotras preferimos disfrutar de las terrazas de la casa y descansar con esas vistas maravillosas hacia el mar.

En pocas palabras un lugar espectacular donde puedes ir con tú familia o amigos.

I don't have enough adjectives for this amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 5 adults and 3 kids (age 11-15) and we all had a fantastic time.

The house - clean, spacious, beautiful home with wonderful ocean views. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't included in the house, and the maid service was wonderful. The roof-top deck is a great location to read in the morning, or catch the sunset and watch macaws in the afternoon. The owner was very helpful with all aspects of our vacation and made sure everything went smoothly.

The property - the house is in a gated community, and is extremely safe and quiet. The only thing you have to watch out for are iguanas (generally harmless, but often startling). The neighborhood pool has a wading section for little kids, but is large enough to accommodate older swimmers, and the pool restaurant is extremely convenient for lunch or drinks. The black sand beach is steps away, and perfect for long strolls, wave jumping, and even surfing. I was worried that the beach may be too rough/dangerous to enjoy, but we had loads of fun playing in the surf.

Location - Playa Hermosa is a little surf town just down the lane (or ~45 walk along the beach), which has several surprisingly good restaurants and bars, and Jaco is less than 15 minutes away. We loved the location -- in addition to hanging out at the rooftop balcony, pool, and beach, you can arrange a horseride on the beach (they'll bring the horses to the area outside the pool), drive to Jaco to zipline, or go to Manual Antonio to see monkeys. (There's plenty more to do in the area, but this was all we had time for.)

We love checking out new places for vacation (there are so many places to see!), but our Costa Rica vacation was so awesome that we plan to return. I would definitely recommend this house and Playa Hermosa!

Owner's Response: Dear Sharon It's with great pleasure that I am reading your comments. Please be assured that I will congratulate the maids. We will continue to improve the house and to maintain it the way you find it. Next year new improvements will be done such more TV sets and a bbq area. Once again it was with an equal pleasure that we have a chance to receive you.

Hermosa Palms in 1st Class Style

  • 5 of 5

This place is where it's at. The property is nearly on the coast with excellent views. We could fall asleep to the sound of the waves, and even spent many an evening (sunset) watching the coast from the well-positioned 3rd floor balcony. The owner was very attentive to our needs and has a very modern, yet comfortable home. We're planning on returning soon. Totally recommend the property.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot Doug, it's a real pleasure to know that you enjoyed the place. We are committed to keep our 5 stars status and will continue to invest into the property features. This year, we've fully painted the exterior of the house and replaced the Central Air conditioning.

Car: recommended

The home is situated in a safe, gated community. The community is beachfront on one of the most known surf beaches in the world. While the town of Hermosa is relaxed and pura vida, with it's surfer vibe, the location is only a 15 minutes drive to Jaco. In Jaco you can find anything you need or want from a vibrant night life to boutique shops, restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores and more.

Another great day trip is Manuel Antonio, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful state parks. Only an hour drive from Hermosa, here you will see three white-sand beaches and swear that each one is more beautiful than the one you saw before. Take a hike or a guided tour through this National Park and see monkeys, birds, frogs and more.
