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!
