What makes this bungalow unique

I love sipping coffee on the front porch in the morning watching the birds and the ocean.

In the evening I love laying in bed listening to the sounds of the jungle and watching the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"2 friends and I spent 2 nights at Bungalow #28 and loved it. The location was perfect. Very quiet except for the wildlife sounds outside. It is a short walk to a surfer's beach, and the pool is close by too. Pool area was especially nice to relax with plenty of lounge chairs in the sun or shade, and even a couple hammocks. I loved sitting on the back porch early in the morning to watch the scarlet macaws and other birds flying past. Definitely bring your binoculars! The bungalow is equipped with all the basics and extras like beach towels and a dvd player. It is beautifully decorated, with nice paintings on the wall and comfortable furniture. Bungalow is also a short distance by car from Jaco's restaurants & grocery stores, while avoiding all the people and noise of Jaco. We'd highly recommend this bungalow and hope to return."

I have stayed at hermossia beach bungalows before so I knew the area which i like.

  • 4 of 5

The beach is long hot and ruff surf during the day. So if your into going out and about or hanging by pool daytime then it's for you. If you want to walk to beach and hang it's too hot on the black sand beach in march at least. The dirt road is bumpy but not bad or long. You can easily walk to a few restaurant down road but easier to walk on beach. We enjoyed town of Jaco Italian place on Main Street was exceptional The beds weren't that comfortable And coffeemaker needs replacing

Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely bungalow. We came back this year because we loved it so much last year, and the feeling continues. The bungalow is about 300 steps from an amazing black sand beach with great waves for boogie boards or for kids playing in the sand. The back porch looks onto a wild area which is perfect for bird watching. Playa Hermosa is far enough from Jaco to be quiet but close enough for easy shopping or dining, although a short walk down the beach to Vista Hermosa was perfect for dinner too. We enjoyed the updated furniture both on the front deck and the living room. We have many happy memories from this trip and look forward to returning again soon.

Everything you want and need in a vacation home

The property is well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. Everyone we encountered during our stay was wonderful and we had a blast at the pool. Nothing quite like the sunsets on the beach 2 minute walk from the front door either!

Great location, house needs work.

  • 1 of 5

Great location with incredible surf and short walk to restaurants and bars. House smelled really bad upon arrival, we closed the door to the back spare bedroom, the source of the foul oder. Be careful when walking on the deck, rotten floor boards, someone could get really hurt. Haven't stayed in too many places where you could see day light through the front door and the floor inside the house. Good location, dilapidated house unfortunately.

Great sunsets(on ocean beach) great birdwatching from back porch good air conditioning in the unit

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time waking up to all the birds in the back,listening to them and watching them from the back porch. Then we would go swimming in the community pool, read on the front porch with the nice ocean breeze, birdwatch some more and then walk on the beach until the beautiful sun would go down.Being able to watch a beautiful sunset every night then coming back and having a full kitchen to be able to cook what we wanted to or go to local restaurants within 1 to 5? miles away depending on what we wanted to eat is very important to us when we travel in this was a real plus, We had a rental car that we could park under the house in a parking spot that kept the car in the shade which was also nice when we were ready to go to the store or to dinner we didn't have to wait for the car to cool down before we could drive it. was a very nice place to stay all the rooms The house also has separate air conditioning units in each room plus ceiling fans so the air flow is great. These bungalows are just south of Jaco(10-15 min) and 1hr+(Depending on time of day and traffic) north of Manuel Antonio. Great communication from owner. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We would love to stay there again!
