About The Owner

Kelly and Doug the owners of Hermosa Bungalow #28.

We live in sunny South Florida were we enjoy outdoor activities like, boating, sportfishing, surfing (Doug), gardening and yoga.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2005

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."

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 CR.so 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!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderful and very comfortable. For us, the best part was the back deck with amazing bird watching - we saw more birds on our mornings on the deck than we did in all our tourist travel in 2 weeks in Costa Rica. The beach is nearby and very pretty. Although the waves are a bit intense there, it is fun to play in the ocean and hang out under an umbrella (rented from Brian, the on-site property manager). The pool is very nice with a family of iguanas providing lots of interesting distraction. The front deck is also very comfortable. The house is in the back of the development....initially we were disappointed by that (the view to the beach is down a road, so you can't see the ocean directly) but the fact that the house backs to the woods (and to the amazing bird watching) totally and completely made up for the fact that it doesn't overlook the ocean. In fact, I would say the house has a prime location. Brian was very easy going about allowing us a late check out (given that there were no other guests coming in the next day), which really helped our itinerary and gave us some extra beach time. The negatives are the following: the beach is black sand and so hot, and the waves are too intense for a beginning surfer. However, Jaco is very nearby (a very short drive) and there is a mellow beach there where beginner surfers abound.

Quaint Stay Beachside

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Hermosa Bungalow 3 nights for our honeymoon. We had a pleasant comfortable stay, and were very happy to have the washer and dryer in the unit. It rained most of the time we were there so we were unable to take full advantage of the beach access. We did a ATV and zip lining excursion out of Jaco, which were both awesome.

Perfect Beach Bungelow

  • 5 of 5

From check-in to check-out, this property was a breeze. This small community of 30 or so beach cottages was perfect for our group of 4. The home sits about 100 yards or so off the beach allowing your to hear the waves from the porch.

Upon our arrival, the house was clean and seemed ready for us. The home had everything we needed in terms of amenities, which gave us a great feel of a home away from home.

I do recommend having a car rental in this area to help your group get around. There are taxi services in the area but it is much easier to get a ride back to the house from town then vise versa. The home is situated about a 1/4 mile off the main highway on the dirt access road in Playa Hermosa. This is a surfers paradise as there are tons of consistent waves up and down the beach in Playa Hermosa. The one downfall of this beach is that it is Black Sand which makes it very hot to lay out on but the community pool offers a great solution to this.

Jaco is the largest town in the area and is about 10 minutes north via car. Once you spend a day or two in Jaco, you'll realize you made the right choice by staying in Playa Hermosa. We stayed here during mid-August and the weather was perfect!

The house as awesome, the hospitality was amazing, the communication was convenient. Thank you for the memories!
