Hermosa Paradise House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our 3 Bedroom, 2-1/2 Bath home is located in the unique and secluded beach front community of Hermosa Palms. Located directly across the street from the beach front pool and shaded by 70 foot Mango Trees, our house has easy access to the beach and surfing. The beach is less than 100 steps from the front door.

The house is 2200 square feet . The ground floor has a spacious living and dining area where friends and family can gather to socialize and talk about the days adventures . The outdoor veranda is perfect for listening to the wildlife abuzz in the mango trees. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed, walk in closet and private bathroom with a shower. There is also a balcony. During the cool months leave the sliders open and the birds will wake you in the morning with their songs or take the stairs up to the third floor lookout and see the ocean one way and the mountains the other. There are two other bedrooms upstairs. One with a queen and one with 2 Twin Beds. They share a bathroom with a shower. There is a Blowup Queen Mattress which allows our house to sleep 6 people in beds plus 2 additional on the inflatable mattress.

Hermosa Palms is a gated community with 24 hour security. Take the beach road at the end of Playa Hermosa. Drive slow so you don't hit the potholes, miss the hot surfers, the occasional crocodile or the Macaws flying overhead. Pay close attention because you will see storks, spoonbills, Caracara, egrets, Herons, parrots,and a whole bunch of birds you cant identify. Beyond Hermosa Palms is a sanctuary dedicated to the protection of sea turtles. Playa Hermosa is a prime nesting area for Olive Ridley sea turtles from July to November. Every morning and afternoon scarlet macaws come to feed in the trees by the pool. The mango trees are home to iguanas, opossums, and all kinds of birds. Our house is usually home to geckos and the occasional beach crab.

Hermosa Palms is secluded enough to have nearly solitary beaches but also close enough to nearby Jaco for convenient shopping, restaurants, casinos and nightlife.

About Donna Delanty

My husband and I live in Park City, Utah. We have owned and operated a picture framing gallery for over 30 years. We enjoy skiing, golf, hiking and traveling

Donna Delanty purchased this house in 2004

Why Donna Delanty chose Puntarenas

How do I describe what this property has meant to me. 13 years ago I came for the first time and absolutely fell in love with the country, the culture, and the people. Looking back I was a little impulsive but I wanted a piece of it. My little bit of paradise. So I threw caution to the wind and bought a lot and built a house. Over the years we have had amazing trips and adventures. I invite you to come and visit this land of adventure and wonder. You don't have to go far from any location to see the beauty of nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So happy that Yonnit is back serving drinks and food at the pool. After a year of uncertainty hope she's back for good. Although I have never advertised this amenity on my listing at least one renter gave me a mediocre review because there was no pool bar service. Please note I have no control over this but am excited she's back in business.

Exceeded My Expectations

  • 5 of 5

It was 7 of us and from the moment we arrived we were greeted by Tina, and little did we know our awesome adventure was just going to keep getting better. Tina helped us book tours, and provided us with any and everything that we needed. The house was cozy, fully equipped and had an amaaaazing rooftop view. The pool right next to the ocean was breathtaking. Yoyo'so bar was on the pool and had a selection of snacks, yummy drinks and delicious food( you have to try YoYo'so hummus). The beach had black sand and everyday around 6pm we enjoyed the amazing sunset. All and all the house completely exceeded my expectations and definitely would recommend this to friends and family.

Safe community with a great pool for small kids!

  • 3 of 5

Pro

- The house is big and spacious and nicely decorated.

- very convenient access to the pool and beach as the hose is located closest to the pool entrance.

- Great pool with lots of shallow area, great for small kids

- convenient access to filtered water and ice cubes at fridge

- lots of kitchen utensils

- the hose is in the very safe gated community. Yo will see macaws and iguanas and it us very beat if land peaceful

- Wifi access

Con

- The maintenance of the hose is sub par. Toilets bowls were dirty, one of the three toilet sheet was completely broken, one ceiling fun was broken, drier doesn't work well ( you have to ran 3 times if yo want to dry towels. Eventually we gave up and hang dry them), dish washer doesn't work well (could be the old detergent), phone to make local calls didn't work

- there was no longer a bar and a restaurant within the gated community. This false advertisement was a really a deal breaker for us with small kids. We wouldn't have rented this place description didn't say there was no restaurants or bars within a walking distance at the time when we booked the hose, so was very disappointed

Advise for future renters

- since the master bed room's AC stopped working and a toilet sheet was broken, we had to contact house maintenance guys. Other than dish washer and drier, everything was fixed within two days

- no bathroom amenity other that 1" tiny Soaps and one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom in the hose. It is 20 minutes car ride to a big super market and 10 minutes drive to a small local mart, so you should pack everything you need, such as detergent, dish washer tablets, shampoos, conditioners, hand soaps, toilet papers, paper towels, plastic wraps etc. Basically you should expect nothing to be there in the house. Those things can be purchased locally but if yo arrive late and have small kids like us, it is a hassle and the bumpy road to the market is not pleasant.

- there are 10 or so towels including rug quality ones with holes and rust stains. Since the drier didn't work well to dry towels, you might want to bring a few extra on your own

- we couldn't enter the house for twenty min as nobody was there to open the house upon our arrival. We had to again made an international phone call to contact the owner in US and maintenance guys who were supposedly at the facility. This cold have been easily avoided if owner gave us the 4 digit code to the lock box in advance. Make sure to ask for it

Amazing place A+

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at this house and it was just amazing once again. Since booking with the owner, everything was spectacular. Our family and friends had a fabulous time, too. The house is wonderful, comfortable and pretty. The manager and the maid were really nice. The pool was beautiful, as always, and now there is a little restaurant at the pool that was awesome for cocktails and food. We love this house, we love Hermosa Palms and we love Playa Hermosa. The sunsets were priceless. ALL WAS PERFECT!

Thank you for having us again in your lovely house. We will be back.
