Awesome people, house was great.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late afternoon and Yanory took us to the house ( a two minute drive from the backyard bar/hotel).

Yanory was awesome, showed the house and it is exactly as the pics. She responded to our phone calls immediately, which in costa rican time is like the future.... She recommended an awesome massage therapist, the housekeeper was there when you requested and very nice, denny the security guard was great (even though his english isnt). Overall a great value, very nice beach, beautiful view, nice home.... if I were very nit-picky yes there is some noise from trucks and a couple of minor issues. However I would rent again in a second and have already recommended to friends and family. Look forward to returning to casa hermosa in the future and thanks for saving my friend from the 10+ foot waves Nick !

Also the backyard bar a few hundred yards away is my favorite hangout in Costa rica.

First time in Costa Rica - Best trip ever!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of five with teenagers. As we have never rented a house through VRBO before, we were pleasantly surprised with the fabulous accommodations and the convenience of it all. The house was spacious and well decorated, with all the necessary amenities in good working order. The Infinity pool and outdoor shower were a big hit. Even my wife who never swims in pools took a few dips. Our youngest boy was in constant awe of the surroundings, with many iguana, toucan, monkey and other animal sightings. We even saw an owl land in a neighbouring palm tree.

The owner and his staff really take care of this place and we would recommend it to friends and family. On occasion, the road noise is a bit noticeable, but did not take away from our fabulous experience overall.

Jaco and Playa Hermosa are outstanding places to visit. Our kids learned to surf and loved the ATV trip through the mountains, which included swimming in a natural waterfall lagoon. WOW!!!

Can't wait to come back in the near future!

Our best family vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was seamless from the time I first emailed Casa Hermosa util our excellent airport transfer home. Check in with Nick and his staff was simple. The house was excellent. Beautiful ocean views,infinity pool , jungle, monkeys, toucans, pura vida. The maid , concierge ,maintenance all very professional and friendly. We rent houses at least twice a year for our family vacations and this was by far the best. We will be back next year. Thanks for everything. Tell Elvis hello..

Muy buenas vacaciones

  • 4 of 5

Muy buena opción para vacacionar, todo inmejorable salvo por la carretera y el ruido, está muy cerca de la casa y realmente es la única pega de ésta casa. Por dentro muy amplia y bien equipada, con piscina, muy cerca de la playa, también espectacular. Amplia opción de excursiones. También hacer reseña de la necesidad de alquilar coche, ya que está algo alejada de cualquier sitio y a pie se hace pesado desplazarse.

Great home and service

  • 5 of 5

I loved the home everything from security to wonderful Shirley our maid and Vincenzo the maintenance man who made sure everything was in working order made us feel well cared for in Costa Rica. The house was in good shape and very clean. While you are in the jungle there are going to be some bugs but nothing unusual. The pool was wonderful and the bedrooms very comfortable I enjoyed the Sonos music system that allows you to put your iTunes through the house which was great for soothing music at bedtime. The only downside is highway 34 runs past house which sits 100 feet above the highway so noise is constant. The beach is across road and is beautiful day and night uncrowded during week one day counted 20 people on1 mile stretch of beach. I believe the rental locations and beauty of the house far outweighs the road. Also this house was within 15 minutes of Jaco and 20 from playa herradura which has great grocery store auto marcado.
