About Owner

My name is John and I live here at Dos Palomas now. I gave up my excavating business and left the cold and insane taxes of Maryland to live out the rest of my days in the warmth of Costa Rica. I invite all my friends to come visit and I look forward to all the new friends I will make with this rental!

Owner purchased this House in 2013

Why Owner chose Hermosa Hills

This is a great house, big and ideally located. I looked at a lot of properties and loved this house as soon as I saw it. The long balcony is great for lounging in the morning as the sun rises and even better in the evenings with a cocktail as the sun sets.

What makes this House unique

This house is quiet and feels remote without actually being remote. You can hear the pounding surf of the ocean from the rooftop deck and the balconies. It is easy to get to, just off the main highway (34) and has all the luxury of a high end resort but without the high price tag.

                                                                  Awesome vacation home !!!! It was everything that anyone could ask for. Oversized tub !!! Two adults could fit comfortably. Lovely tile , nice size kitchen , balcony and roof top views , with excellent restaurants within walking distance. Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets !!! We loved every bit of the house and our vacation in Costa Rica exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this home to anyone thinking of staying in the Jaco, Playa Hermosa area. Already looking forward to our next visit as we will definitely be staying here if possible. Awesome !!!!!!

                                                                  BEST VACATION IN YEARS!


                                                                  My husband and I recently spent 7 days here, and I think Costa Rica is our new favorite vacation spot! This house is beautiful, spacious, and very reasonably priced. It could easily accommodate a large family or group of friends. In addition, it is conveniently located to several restaurants and shops, and the beach is right across the street. The private pool was very nice and the view from the balcony is spectacular. This was by far one of the nicest places that we have traveled to in many years, and we will definitely be staying here again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Robert N.

                                                                  Stayed at the house for 5 days in early December. Nice, large rooms that more than met our needs. Great views from the third floor balcony that is actually the entire top of the house! All of the interior is finished in tile and granite, very neat and clean. Situated across the road from one of the best surf beaches in CR. An easy walk to the Back Yard, Bowies Point and other restaurants of Hermosa Beach. A pizza shop and small food convenience store right across route 34 was very helpful. Had dinner one night with John the owner, a very amiable guy who was able to answer a lot of our questions about the area. With the addition of the pool (which is under construction) this will be a really super place to stay in Playa Hermosa. Easy access to all the amenities of the area, and the secluded feel of the house make this a great pick for spending some quality time in a beautiful place.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Listen to the roar of the ocean from the front balcony or rooftop; watch the monkeys in the back; birdwatch from the balconey and rooftop deck.
