About the property

3 BR, 4.5 BA, Sleeps 10 (with Casita)

Resting on the hillside overlooking Hermosa Bay and her majestic sunsets sits a truly unique property. Casa Puesta del Sol is available as either a 3 or 5 bedroom vacation property. The upper Casa is 2700 sq ft. Sleeping 6 people with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, the home is beautifully complimented with handmade tropical wooden doors,cabinets and windows. Custom made rattan furniture adds the finishing touches of luxury to this outstanding home. The pool with its sunken bar contains 4 full size bar stools, a sink and refrigerator also has 3 in the water bar stools and whirlpool with built in bench. The views of the ocean from all areas are simply spectacular.

Both homes are connected by a short staircase from the upper home's backyard. You access the Casita on the 2nd floor with its great ocean views. The Casita is also decorated with custom rattan furnishings. (Continued Below Further Details)

A private world has been thoughtfully created for your senses.The Rainforest Backyard abounds with fauna and flora. A rock waterfall with cascading waters into the lagoon pool and matching stone patio for sunbathing complete this magical natural paradise.

Both homes are totally private yet so close together. Privacy is maintained even though both homes are located on the same lot because they exist on two different levels. When traveling with a larger group this feature allows for moments of retreatable enjoyment. Nowhere in the Papagayo area will you find a property that compares with Casa and Casita Puesta del Sol.

Amenities Abound: The upper home has full American Kitchen with all the utensils needed to prepare any meal. All bedrooms have TVs and DVD Players. Dining seating for 6 and additional space for 3 at the kitchen's raised granite countertop. Outside a 35 by 12 ft covered patio with fans is the perfect place to relax from the sun or have that evening cocktail as the kaleidoscope of colors explode in front of your eyes in sunsets that are just too incredible to believe.

The Casita has its own unique features. On the first floor the step down shower/ tub adds a touch class. Views of the ocean and sunsets from the second floor are wonderful. The rainforest backyard is so encompassing that you will ask yourself ' why do I need to go anywhere else?'

But you do need to see this wonderful country and the Home has the perfect location from which to journey. Hermosa is the closest beach community to 2 National parks and to the Arenal Volcano. Playas del Coco is 10 mins away, nightlife, dining and full market.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow! What a great time in paradise. This trip was a Christmas present from my wife and I to my kids and other family members (13 of them) that was truly the gift that kept on giving. We spent (2) exciting weeks of fun and relaxation at the beautiful, comfortable, spacious and secure villa Puesto Del Sol, which also included a separate but equally nice casita that accommodated the overflow of people aged 5 to 89. Great accommodations, terrific pools, (both the main house and the casita had their own), endless activities and stunning views of the ocean from our mountainside perch made this a truly memorable experience. The crew at Beach Front Properties, which included our agent Tim Ellis and concierge Guss really took care of our every need and their advice and assistance was invaluable in making the most of our time there. The property was well maintained and included a generous amount of space for our family to spread out---the daily maid service (Elsey) was a much appreciated bonus. We also hired a local women "Rocio's Kitchen" who prepared (3) different Costa Rican meals for us, each one of them unique, authentic and very tasty. There were also plenty of excellent restaurants in the area we enjoyed.

Additionally, we took almost daily advantage of the fantastic array of activities offered through Tico Tours, to explore the area and take advantage of day-trips that included zip-lining, sail boat cruises, beach hopping, horse-back riding, hot springs, ATV ‘ing, snorkeling, river boat excursions, you name it. Our guide, Bernal Mata, the owner of Tico Tours, was without question the most knowledgeable, attentive and fun-to-be-with guide any of us had encountered while on vacation and most of us have traveled the world. His direction, input and adventurous spirit were indispensable for getting the most out of 14 days in paradise.

Overall, everything worked out beautifully and I guess the best recommendation we could give is---we'll be back later this year!

GREAT vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 couples that stayed at Casa Puesta del Sol and the Casita. It was wonderful… to say the least. The main house and pool were great and had everything we needed. We loved the swim up bar where people could interact in and out of the pool. The new Casita was beautiful as well. We really enjoyed the small pool at the Casita; it was more intimate and relaxing. Both parts of the property were all we needed and then some. It worked perfectly for our group and would work for families traveling with kids too. The daily maid service was so helpful and made it truly a carefree vacation…no dishes or laundry! We took advantage of the grill out side and that was nice. We loved being able to make our own food, drinks, and snacks some of the time. We could just kick back when we wanted to and hang out at the house.

Gus was very friendly and helpful. He gave us some good tips on where to eat and things to do. We had the perfect balance between seeing Costa Rica and hanging out by the pool overlooking the Pacific. It was truly a mesmerizing view. And pictures don’t do it justice. As far as activities, we took the sunset tour Gus recommended and loved it. We ended up chartering the Catamaran again later in the week for a whole day out on the water. We also did the Zip line tour at Rincon de la Vieja. WOW… that was a favorite of all of us and we would recommend it to anyone and everyone. The drive was interesting but made it part of the adventure. We also went white water rafting on the Tenorio River. Again, amazing!! Between the zip line and rafting it is hard to say which was more fun and thrilling. The house at Playa Hermosa was perfectly located so that we could get to and from everything we wanted to do easily. The furthest we had to drive was 1 ½ hours which really was not bad and gave us the opportunity to see the Costa Rican country side.

Thank you Jeff for a great vacation experience and all the help and advice. We really had a great time and look forward to returning some time…maybe bring the kids when they get a little older. It was also an honor to get to meet you in person!! We will recommend your House and Casita to anyone we know heading to Costa Rica…PURA VIDA!!

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

I work for an airline and have travelled with my family of 6 to several countries. We all agree that this was the best place we've stayed at so far for the value. You will feel like you are in Rockstar accommodations, from the amazing view, awesome pool, barbeque, home décor, etc. So, relaxing! We saw some very large iguana's, some cool exotic birds, and two costa rican raccoons, that was just while lounging at the pool.

Playa Hermosa is a nice quiet area, including the beach but was still only 10km from Playa Coco if you wanted/needed a bit more action.

We had an amazing time and would (hopefully soon) go back here. The house is as described, is clean, has lot's of amenities and the owner Jeff is a super nice guy who also recommended some great excursions that we did and loved.

Perfect! Amazing views and house is great

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks. The house was exactly as the pictures showed, big, clean, comfortable with no complaints. Breathtaking views and the property management company took care of everything we asked for in a prompt manner. The area was secure and private. Our group was loud and neighbors had no problems. Would recommend this home to all family and friends.

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with a couple of friends spent two wonderful weeks at Casa Puesta del Sol in Playa Hermosa. The house is beautiful and extremely comfortable. We found it to be very clean, well maintained and lacking for nothing especially since we cooked many meals during our stay and greatly appreciated the many pots and pans etc. The patio/backyard is simply stunning with gorgeous views of the ocean and brilliant sunsets. The patio furniture is top notch and again very clean and well maintained. The infinity pool was a welcomed addition to our stay and we used it daily to cool down and refresh during the heat of the afternoon. The house is conveniently located minutes from the beach and the small fun village of Coco. Guss and Jake from Beachfront Properties were very helpful as we settled in and continued to be attentive to all of our needs during the remainder of our stay. We would highly recommend Casa Puesta del Sol to anyone visiting the Playa Hermosa area and wish to thank Jeff Grayson for sharing his Costa Rican home with us. We will be back again the future.

The house and property exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Playa Hermosa was a good location to check out local attractions daily. Our family of 10,that was made made up of 3 generations, had a wonderful stay. The 2 houses gave us all our own rooms and bathrooms. Daily maid service tidied up the houses while we were out- what a treat to return home to that!

There was ample room to spread out. The pools and terrace was where we spent our time when at the house. The property is a short walk to the beach which was also fun with 2 young grandchildren.

One week definitely not long enough!

Would definitely go back
