We invite you to come and stay in this custom built, ocean front home and at one of the best surf spots in the world! Sit and watch the surfers or participate in catching world class waves. Watch the sunset right from the back patio or your bedroom and feel the warmth of the sun and the ocean breezes. Play a game of pool. Take a morning or afternoon walk on our almost deserted beach and get in touch with nature. Let your senses unlock and escape your hectic life . Experience Costa Rica and you will not want to leave.
The house is all natural with stone, slate and granite throughout. Stained glass windows and Costa Rican art are seen throughout the house. The furniture was custom built for the home by local artisans. All new window and doors were installed last year.
There is nothing quite like opening your glass sliding doors and walking right onto the beach. This unique house is unlike any house you've ever seen.
Feel the ocean breezes come through the house. With the new windows and screens the house stays well ventalated.
There is one full bedroom with an en suite bath on the first floor facing the mountain side. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor 3 are facing the mountain side, one with en suite bath. (Top floor is the private owners apartment)
The master bedroom and a large second master bunkroom are oceanfront on the second floor. Wake up and look out of the window and see the ocean. Instant surf report!
The 30 meter long community pool is beach side and only 3 houses down from the house. Enjoy a fish taco and a drink at Yoyo's pool bar. You will want to spend your day there!
We are happy to set you up on activities such as zip line, ATV's, horseback riding, fishing, white water rafting, hiking, surf lessons and so much more.
We will get you oriented with a list of restaurants, grocery stores, transportation or whatever you may need.
Must love dogs! This is a dog friendly community and there are many well mannered dogs that love to play in the surf with their owners.
We are native Californians and love the ocean. We reside in southern California in the quaint beachside town of San Clemente. The beach is where our heart is and we want to share a little bit of our paradise with you! This photo was taken at El Avion in Manuel Antonio. A WW2 plane sits right on the property and is now the bar!!!
Kelli McMullen purchased this estate in 2014
We were married in Costa Rica and since then we have been looking for property. Perseverance and patience paid off when we found this gem. The previous owners put their heart and soul into this home and we will do the same.
Being beach front has its obvious advantages. This is a guard-gated community with foot patrol on the beach and around the community so you will have an extra added sense of security. The house is big enough to have privacy but also has a great community feel. Inside the furniture was made for the house. It is unique and interesting as is the art in and of itself. Beautiful stained glass and mural-art throughout enhance the uniqueness and character of this home. This is a great family get-away... (top (3rd floor is private owners apartment)
Although we arrived at 2:30 in the morning (rental car delays), Roberto the property manager, was there to greet us with a huge smile. (Important to note that the last 2 miles (approx.) to this house in Hermosa Palms are on a very dusty road parallel to the ocean. There are no signs for Hermosa Palms at the highway. You might think you're lost but you're not.) I woke up at 7:00 am too excited to sleep in. Went directly out the back sliding doors to the most beautiful view ever! Surfers were already riding the waves. Stray dogs were playing in the ocean. Roberto and Marie Eve will give you surfing lessons if you want any. Our son had a 2 hour lesson and loved it! This house was exactly what HomeAway said it was. Huge, homey and gorgeous. Very comfortable beds and A/C throughout the house. Maria, the housekeeper, came by every day to sweep the floors, tidy up and make our beds. She will also do your laundry for a small fee. In our rental vehicles we toured Jaco, Los Suenos, Parrita and Quepos. Quepos was my favourite. Felt very European as it was very mountainess. My opinion is that you should definitely have a rental vehicle for this property if you want to get out of the gated community and explore. There's lots to do and see. If you want a close encounter with monkeys, I would recommend Raffa the Monkey Man. He calls the monkeys to the boat and gives you bananas to feed them. He'll even smush a banana on your face and the monkeys lick it off. Very cute! We zip lined with Vista Los Suenos in Jaco. Very professional establishment. Also, DO NOT leave Jaco without visiting Villa Caletos. It was the HIGHLIGHT of our vacation. This resort is nettled up high in the mountains and the sunsets are spectacular. My dinner was absolutely phenomenal!!! Ambiance like no other!! Our family will definitely go back again. My only criticism would be for the owners of the property to give the renters better directions from the airport to the house or from Jaco to the house. We got poor directions given to us in Spanish from the rental car place to the highway to Jaco. We got lost. Also note that the last 2 miles to find the house was a complete guess. We had no clue if we were on the right road because there were no signs to Hermosa Palms on the highway; only a sign for Hermosa Beach. BEST VACATION EVER!!!!!!
My family and I arrived from 3 different and very cold provinces from Canada to this incredible beach front home. We were all very impressed with the spaciousness this home provided and all the amenities it offered. The property managers attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the area was greatly appreciated and made the visit that much more enjoyable. We loved the pool with swim up bar and beautiful ocean to surf were incredible along with the sunsets! We rented a van to get to our excursions and grocery shop and it was nice to "come back home" to this comfortable and warm and safe environment. I would highly recommend this vacation getaway and hope to come again! Thank you Kelli and Derick! Tracey and Gary Lannin (aka Lea's parents) 😎
We loved the house, the people and the community. The beach, pool and everything else was amazing. Everyone was friendly. The house was beautiful and filled with artwork. Derek and Kelli were great hosts. Derek spent time with my niece, taught her how to surf, made a friend for life. Roberto and Marie were awesome house managers who made arrangements and provided suggestions, and even provided a personal tour of their farm. Maria was there daily to clean for us. It's a great location and everything in the house was exceptional.
My only constructive feedback would be to have more pantry items (listed as being provided but there was not much there other than a bit of salt). There were lots of pots and pans and dishes but bowls and containers had very few matching lids. We cooked every day but storing leftovers was a challenge as we had no wrap or lids to match the containers. The listing also mentioned an exercise room with equipment but we saw no sign of that. We managed quite nicely but a better stocked kitchen would have been nice.
In spite of my constructive feedback above, overall, I would highly recommend this property to a large group of people. We only had 8, it can sleep twice that much. Pura Vida!
This house is stunning. The house manager is a great guy and will help you with anything you are trying to plan. We could not have asked for a better experience
We couldn't have been more pleased! Absolutely amazing house in an amazing neighborhood, right on a gorgeous beach. The pictures do not accurately represent the beauty of the house and beach. Property owners are super cool and the house manager is amazing. We couldn't recommend it highy enough. We'll definitely be back.
This was our third time in Costa Rica and the best trip yet!
The new owners are great to work with, the property is WAY nicer than we expected.
I would recommend a rental car so you can enjoy the surrounding area and to go for groceries in Jaco, town is not far but not walking distance either.
The kitchen is well appointed and a natural gathering place, we cooked every day with the awesome fresh ingredients from town. The rooms in the house are very comfortable and big!
The house is cleaned by a local lady and she does a great job.
Pool table on first floor and ping pong on the roof deck.
There is a community pool that has a great swim up bar with the lovely Yoyo for a bartender and to cook a light lunch.
We rode horses on the beach which they can bring right to the house. Went for a guided tour through rain forest, played in the surf, and lots of lounging in the pool.
This place is in a gated community and the residents/locals are very welcoming and helpful for the tours in the area. You can see them surfing almost all day.
If you're a dog lover there are a few resident dogs in the area that you may find laying on your porch watching the surf with you. They are all good dogs, I think they know that they have a great life so no worries.
The property is about an hour ride from San Jose airport but it is a beautiful ride through the hills.
We have already reserved it again for a week next summer. That should say it all!
We are located just a few minutes south of Jaco in the quiet gated community of Hermosa Palms. There are two small grocery stores about 2 miles away and one delivers. There is a bigger grocery store in Jaco
