INCREDIBLY ROMANTIC VILLA - PRIVATE POOL, GUARDED COMMUNITY

Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This villa is ideal for a romantic holiday. Walk out from either bedroom to an amazing slate terrace. Enjoy your morning, sipping our rich Costa Rican coffee, while watching the scarlet macaws and toucans in nearby trees - we've even seen a sloth in the trees across the street! Relax in the beautifully tiled indigo blue pool, or sit on the lounge chairs soaking up the sun. This house is all about relaxing and enjoying. One nice feature to this house is that both bedrooms are equal in size, great when 2 couples are renting. We also have deep well water that is also filtered. You can safely drink the water here, something very rare in this area.

In Mediterranean architecture, the open floor plan is perfect for entertaining or romantic getaways. If you like to cook, you'll love this kitchen; fully equipped with a bar separating the living room. The house is built with all local woods, the ceiling being exposed teak beams, and all work by local artisans.

Arriving at the villa, you'll be greeted with a bouquet of fresh flowers (usually cut from the flowers in the villa's garden) along with a welcome basket with local fresh fruit. You'll feel right at home within minutes! 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.

Local restaurants and bars, all within 5 minutes. A list of activities, all within walking distance (meaning less than 5 minutes):

There is a yoga retreat about 2 minute walk from the house, they have various sessions throughout the day.

We have 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, from your front door there are numerous trails to explore, including to waterfalls, up mountains, into the rain forest or simply to the beach, which is about a mile down the road.

Los Suenos Marina is about a 20 minute drive. A one hour drive to San Jose airport, this is the perfect location for a quick getaway!

We can assist you with all your vacationing needs, from transportation to zip line tours, white water rafting, and of course our world famous deep water fishing. This is sure to be your best vacation ever! For more photos, please see our YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzD9zViCugk

NICE SPOT FOR A FAMILY GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a lovely four days at this Playa Hermosa villa. Our three-year old absolutely loved the pool. We did not go out except to the supermarket - a very nice American-style Automercado about 20 min from the house - we were that comfortable and entertained just hanging out. We had problems with the grill and Kelie, the manager, replaced it with a functioning one. The kitchen is lacking in implements and a microwave would have been useful. The pool is close to the street and in eye- (and ear-) shot of the neighbors and the vegetation is still growing in so you may feel a tiny bit exposed. We recommend the villa and will visit again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad I was able to replace the BBQ for you, its such a nice poolside gazibo for grilling outdoors, the BBQ is a must. I'll be sure and take a look at the cooking utensils and by your next visit, I'm sure you'll have what you need. Thanks again and look forward to your return!

EXCELLENT!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about how great our vacation to Costa Rica was and especially this house!! Costa Rica is beautiful and has something for everyone! The house was absolutely perfect! It is a beautiful home, very spacious! In a perfect location for surfing at Hermosa Beach. The pool is gorgeous! I could have just sat right by the pool the whole week!! Kelie is amazing and very helpful with any questions you may have about what to do while in Costa Rica. If you go you MUST do the sailboat excursion with Glenn! Kelie can set it up. You can snorkel, swim, fish or just hang out on the boat and Glenn is wonderful! We loved, loved, loved the house and can't wait to go back!!!! I recommend renting a car if you are staying here so you can drive to other activities and attractions that you may want to see in Costa Rica.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful - I want one! Loved the layout, the stone shower, the private pool, and all the wrought iron. The house is in a little surfing town and in a central location for a variety of day trips to beaches and other attractions. There is so much to see, we were glad that we rented a vehicle. Kelli is the "best kept secret". She was so helpful in providing directions and information on where to go, what to do, where to eat, and where to shop. She was always there if we needed her and she was fantastic resource for activities. We went sailing, snorkelling, zip lines, surfing, paddle boarding, hiking, and more. This VRBO is fantastic!

BEST VACATION SPOT IN ALL OF COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for two weeks and we could not have been happier. The house is very spacious, we loved the walk-in showers and we were in the pool every day. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook our meals and we grilled almost every day, using the outside bbq grill. It was also extremely convenient to have a washer and dryer on property. The property manager, Kelie was SO helpful in every aspect. She gave us great recommendations on places to eat, things to see and excursions to take. This vacation would not have been the same without her. We felt very safe in this house, as it is in a guarded community with 24-hour security. The house also had an umbrella and cooler that we were able to take to the beach with us! Although two weeks seems like a long vacation, we were dreading leaving! This was the best vacation we have ever had. It was so nice to be in paradise with an at-home feel to it. We rented a moped for the week and had lots of fun, however I would definitely recommend renting an SUV!

GREAT HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
This was a perfect place for us for a week. The house is nicely laid out with two good size bedrooms and great walk-in showers in both bathrooms. The pool was a huge plus as it was 90 degrees. The kitchen has plenty of plates and cookware, but check what's available in the kitchen - we ended up buying basics like salt and pepper, matches, olive oil. Also had to purchase clothes detergent for the washer. Kelie was great in setting us up with a rafting trip, and giving us tips on where to buy food - great farmer's market on Friday - and where to eat. Also, she supplies the best directions I've ever seen on how to get to her place from San Jose. One drawback was that the house sits on the main entrance to the gated compound so there was more traffic and dust than expected.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review Marilyn. I'm glad you liked my directions - they can be difficult in a country that doesn't really use street signs... I apologize for the dust, with the drought we're having this year, it's been particularly bad. Thank you and it was very nice to meet you guys. Kelie

GREAT LOCATION NEAR JACO

  • 4 of 5
This 2 bedroom home has comfortable beds and a nice sized pool in a secure community within 5 km of Jaco. Kelly is a great host that provides all information and responses to questions on things to do, places to see,and where to buy things.

We would rent this place again.
