Playa Hermosa House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR/ 2 BA Sleeps 6

Located in the quiet neighborhood of Opera Salvaje, this newly built modern-style, three-bedroom house in Playa Hermosa is perfect for family and friends. It is located in a quiet, charming neighborhood, but just minutes from the beach and all the activities you could want. Whether you are looking for a quiet vacation, or one filled with many activities, Casa Binny is the perfect place for both. From the minute you enter this casa you will feel at home.

The spacious and comfortable house features high ceilings with beautiful wood beams. There is a wonderful fully equipped open kitchen, large comfortable living room, dining area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, full laundry room and garage. The master bedroom has a walk in closet and a sliding door leading out to the deck and pool.

The private pool is surrounded by a large terrace, and beautifully landscaped garden, complete with outside tables, chairs and chaises making it the perfect spot to relax and entertain. The garden has year round flowering trees and plants and an outside shower. The neighborhood is named Opera Salvaje, which in English means Wild Opera. As you sit by the pool listening to the many birds you will see why it got this name. Our neighborhood is unique in that we offer excellent drinking water because we have a deep well.

You many find yourself wanting to stay and enjoy a book by the pool, but there are many activities you can do that are right in the neighborhood, including mountain bike trails, and hiking to beautiful waterfalls. There is also a yoga retreat right next to our neighborhood with classes and massages by appointment.

You are only a couple minutes away from many restaurants, bars and beaches here in Playa Hermosa. The highlight of the day is walking along the beach watching the magnificent sunset. The larger town of Jaco is a 10 minute drive and there you will find beautiful beaches, shopping, many restaurants, pharmacies, ATM's, farmer's markets and much more...anything you need.

Los Suenos is a 20-minute drive and there you will find golfing, and world-class sport fishing excursions.

In an hour you can be in Manual Antonio National Park, with its amazing beaches, hiking and wildlife tours.

Now that the new highway is finished, you can get to the house in just over an hour from the Juan Santemaria Airport.

There are so many activities that you can do as you will see below, and we are more than happy to help you find what you are looking for. We can assist in arranging tours, provide you with directions to various waterfalls around our area, as well as offer recommendations to local events such as concerts and art exhibits.

About Kelie Limehouse

Hi, my name is Binny Silverman the owner of the house. I came to Costa Rica in 2005 with my children to vacation and surf. We all fell in love with the country, the people and especially this special area- Playa Hermosa.

Kelie Limehouse is my property manager and will help you will any questions you may have. If you wish to speak with me directly about the house, she can give you my personal email.

Kelie Limehouse purchased this house in 2008

Why Kelie Limehouse chose Puntarenas

The community where the house is located is named Opera Salvaje. In English that means Wild Opera. It was named after the birds you hear and see flying all day. The house is on a corner and is very private and peaceful.We are so happy to be in this neighborhood with it's beautiful, quiet and relaxing surroundings. I am sure you will love it too.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this house the minute I walked in because of it's spacious and beautiful design. The ceilings are high with fantastic beams. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are large with great shelves and storage. The master bedroom also has a large walk in closet.

I love the open design of the kitchen, dining room and living room, which has a pull out couch for extra sleeping space.

There is also a large garage and a laundry room.

I have furnished the house so that my family and guests will feel comfortable and relaxed.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need to cook and enjoy the local fresh fish, fruit and vegetables available in the area.

Every room has air conditioning and fans.

But probably what made me fall in love with this house was the huge back covered deck. There is outside furniture and a beautiful large teak wooden table and chairs. You will really love eating here, playing games and spending time with family and friends around this great table.

I know you will relax and enjoy many hours in this house, on the back deck and in the pool.

Nice house in gated community

  • 5 of 5

It was 4 of us in total. 2 couples. We all thought the house was great. The house itself is in a gated community with guards that patrol the area at night so you definitely feel safe. The house itself is very cozy and has all the amenities you could possibly want for a vacation. Every room has great air conditioners which is always good since it tends to get really hot down there. We spent most of our time in Jaco which is a 10-15 minute drive from the property and the town and its people were awesome! When we were in the house we spent our time in the back swimming in the pool and grilling while listening to music and drinking some of Costa Rica's finest beers! We met Kelie on the 3rd day of our stay and she seemed really down to earth. We all enjoyed the hammocks as well...i even passed out on one! Lovely vacation and I would definitely stay there again! Thanks Kelie.

Beautiful home in a safe guarded community!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all of our expectations. It is located in a safe guarded quiet community. The home was clean, accomodating and comfortable. The backyard and pool area were over the top!! We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing there after exploring all the area had to offer. Kelie was instrumental in steering us in the right direction. All of her suggestions were amazing and truly made our stay in Playa Hermosa undeniably one of our better vacations. From the restaurant recommendations, to the day trip to Manuel Antonio, sailing with Glenn Henderson and river rafting. She also hooked us up with Zuma rental car who picked us up at the airport and drove us back. We literally planned this trip in less than 10 days and Kelie helped us with every detail. I would highly recommend any property she is managing. We will definitely be back!!

Perfect secluded place to relax!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and great place to stay at Casa Binny!! Extremely safe and right across from Playa Hermosa Beach. Couple miles from Jaco where there are safe and clean beaches that are suitable for everyone. Note some of the beaches have strong currents and rip tides so Jaco beach is calm and great for kids or those inexperienced in the ocean. Kelie the manager is super knowledgeable and a great resource for things to do in the area including recommendations for restaurant's and adventure fun. The house has a perfect pool especially for small kids and the backyard terrace is fantastic. The Opera Salvaje community is gated with security so super safe and quiet. Place is spacious and equipped with almost everything you need. This is a much better option that staying at a resort or hotel. Washer and Dryer was also nice to have. We can't wait to go back!! Pura Vida!!
