About the property

4 Bedrooms / 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8), 100 steps to the beach

This stunning, well appointed 4 bedroom home is located in the gated community of Hermosa Palms. Check the surf off the master bedroom and deck, or let it lull you to sleep after a day of fun. Savour your coffee and breakfast outside under one of the 2 covered terraces. Enjoy the sea breezes while swinging in the hammock on the roof top terrace. Have a barbecue or let someone else do the cooking and dine at a nearby restaurant.

The beach and community pool are a short two minute, 500 foot stroll away. Just carry your surf board with you. Playa Hermosa is one of the most consistent and best surfing destinations in Costa Rica. The site of the 2009 summer world surfing championships. You may also see turtles on the beach laying their eggs. Spotting the Scarlet Macaw parrots in the almond trees is a daily event, usually at 6am or 4 pm.

For a real thrill don't forget the Zip lines just outside of town.

You're only 45 minutes from the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. This park has monkeys, parrots and other wildlife. There are great eateries along the way with spectacular clifftop ocean views.

Just a 15 minute drive north you will find the 5 star Marriott Los Suenos Resort, which offers golf, tennis,shops, fine dining, spa and marina, or continue along another 5 minutes and treat yourself to sunset cocktails at Villa Caleta's. This will be unforgettable.

The airport in San Jose is less than ninety minutes away with a newly opened highway. Rental car pickup, taxi or van can be easily arranged including a driver. Just step out of the airport and let someone else do the driving.

This spectacular tropical beach community of Hermosa Palms is noted for its ideal location and friendly atmosphere. Close to the town of Jaco, yet blessed with 5 miles of uncrowded beach and endless surf. Your ideal place to decompress from life's pressures.

About Tim Van Zoost

My wife and I first discovered the beauty and friendly relaxed culture of Costa Rica in 2004.

Tim Van Zoost purchased this house in 2007

Why Tim Van Zoost chose Puntarenas

We rented many condos and homes nearby and then happened to find Hermosa Palms and rent in this community. Our intention was to build elswhere, but the specatular beach life and community of Hermosa Palms quickly changed our minds.

What makes this house unique

Long walks on a mostly empty beach other than a few surfers enjoying themselves, offered more than we could ever have dreamed for.If you are a bird watcher then you found the right spot. Parrots, pelicans, hummingbirds and a hundred more species are there to see. When you need ammenities or a night out for dining its at your fingertips. No long drives just to get the basics. Your precious vacation time is left for what you want to do. Relax and enjoy your self.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and loved your house and the community.

Thank you for all of your help getting everything set up. Marco and Eddie and Zuma were all really great to work with.

We had a tremendous experience. It was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely large and comfortable. Everything was first class. A short walk to a nice pool with a swim up bar. Another short walk and the beach. I had never seen waves that large. The weather was great. 85 with a little cloud cover.

This was my 12th trip to Costa Rica and definitely the best. We can't wait to get back

Great accommodations and service.

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are excellent. It comfortably slept seven adults along with large board bags. The neighborhood felt very safe and is conveniently located near the beach and community pool. If you choose to stay here the pool bar is a MUST. The hummus, fish tacos, and..well, pretty much everything there is home made and exceptional. Service provided by Tim and his property manager was also top notch. We chose to utilize the preferred 'vendor' list they provided with great success. In short, I highly recommend staying here!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Playa Hermosa for 10 years now. This is our 3rd year bringing our young children and a staying at Hermosa Palms. Tim's home is wonderful- clean, comfortable, well appointed and spacious and worked well with our kids. Tim was also very helpful with a prepared list of nearby attractions, excursions etc. We couldn't have been happier staying at his home.
