John and Tina DeRosa purchased this house in 2009
Surreal - choice oceanfront location in the central coast's most desireable beachfront community of Hermosa Palms.
Fantastic Costa Rican beauty and hospitality abounds. Close to Jaco for nightlife, dining & shopping, golf at Los Suenos and GREAT Surf. Just minutes north of the Turtle Refuge.
Our combination of our own private pool, larger than average private yard, 2 car garage, outdoor pool bath, convenient outside shower, unobstructed oceanfront views, proximity to common area pool & beach, upscale furnishings, quality beds, linens, and high maintenance standards make this property the best value in the area. This comfortable home, formerly known as 'Pax a la Playa' (Peace at the Beach) is the perfect spot to call home base on your next Costa Rica trip.
My family has visited Costa Rica numerous times and decided to take my in-laws to celebrate Thanksgiving there with us. This house is located very close to the community pool and the beach, where my mother in law spent a LOT of her time. The very large patio off the master suite was great for my father in law who doesn't get around very well. We had daily visits from the macaws and a very friendly monkey who ate out of our hands. The kitchen is well stocked and it was nice being able to wash wet swimsuits and towels in the laundry room. The beds were very comfortable!!! The only complaint would be that the lighting is very dim. It has older LED lights and after dark it is extremely difficult to see in the house which made navigating the stairs dangerous, especially for the older and younger in our family.
My wife and I stayed for two weeks at Tina and John’s wonderful house at Playa Hermosa. The location itself is great—an easy drive from San Jose airport, about 90 minutes, and the gated oceanfront community is a very peaceful, low-key, and beautiful resort-style area, right on the warm Pacific, with its unbelievable sunsets and world-class surfing. The house is fantastic—everything you could want, including washer/dryer, wifi, full kitchen, three bedrooms, sitting rooms, great A/C, garage, gas grill, outdoor Jacuzzi, and great, attentive staff members. The house is so spacious that we were able to have another couple join us for our second week
Playa Hermosa is a short 10 minute drive from the small town of Jaco, where we went everyday to buy our groceries, fresh fruit, produce, and incredible fresh fish. Jaco has a combination of American-style restaurants and plenty of great local places to eat and shop. The house is close to plenty of nice day-trips, like sailing at Herradura, hiking at Manuel Antonio national park, or visiting the most amazing sunset overlook at Villa Caletas.
Just leave plenty of time to relax and enjoy. We are already planning our next trip!
This beautiful home was perfect for our visit. The location is incredible - beautiful views & very close to the beach. The house was well equipped and very comfortable & clean. The pool in the yard is perfect for cooling off, relaxing, reading. The property managers (Trey & Enricho) were so nice & helped us get the gas grill going. The community pool (huge) is very close by & they even let you take the chairs on the beach. We felt very safe in this gated community. We DID feed Paco a banana or two! This home gets an A-plus - we'll return for sure!
Although the house was beautiful, we encountered the following inconveniences:
1. The instructions for entry only provided a lock box key code. I was very upset that we were not notified in advance that the lock box was hiding in the back of the house. We had to circle the house several times in the dark to find it. Once we found it and opened the box...there were three keys in it. one key opened the main lock on the front door but the other two keys did not open the dead bolt lock. thus we were locked out of the house. We eventually got in by my son in law who had to climb through the kitchen window to let us in!
2. no propane for the BBQ
3. wifi did not work half the time we were there.
4. we were also told by the guard at the gate that the tap water was non-potable, so we had to buy bottled water during our stay.
5. Not enough toilet paper supplied. We bought more.
Great pad and location to unwind and enjoy true tropical paradise. Uncrowded, unspoiled beaches with surf right out the front door not to mention wildlife such as the local monkey in backyard tree (which we could call and fed daily), macaws, and inguanas basking everywhere. The house is well appointed and in new condition with great A/C to stay cool indoors and wifi to stay connected...a turn-key, just bring swim suits, tooth brush and Amex card ;) We stayed 2 weeks and didn't want to leave. Jaco is 5km away with shopping and plenty of good restaurants. Our friends also stayed two doors down but the place was not as nice as this unit. To sum it up, great facilities, beautiful environment, very cool wildlife, excellent surf with real warm water 83 luxurious degrees and bountiful fresh fish and tropical fruits for a tasty and healthy diet...what else does one need ? Enjoy...and as they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida!
Excellent accomodations in the Playa Hermosa Palms. The house is well maintained and beautifully decorated. It is situated right near the main complex pool for easy access and the house pool was a wonderful treat after a long day at the beach. You can check the waves from the upstairs master or the viewing deck on the roof. Air conditioning in every room and the towels, bed spreads and sheets are in great shape if not totally new. Other homes in the complex look tired and/or need repair but not this one. You can tell they maintain it every step of the way. Thank you very much for putting so much into our Costa Rica trip. We will definately be back. Surfers from So. Cal., NPB.
