Gorgeous 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Large Beach Bungalow With Ocean View.
About Vanessa Nichols
We are a Florida family of 3 with a fierce passion for Costa Rica. We fell in love with the country in 2005 during our first trip and made it our mission to save our pennies for a home here. We made our dream a reality in the summer of 2016 and we are so excited to share it with our renters. We want our home to feel like home to everyone.
Vanessa Nichols purchased this Bungalow in 2016
Why Vanessa Nichols chose Playa Hermosa
The surf attracted us, the community sold us. The bungalow community is so unique, comfortable and you can't get any closer to the beach than this! All of this plus only a 10 minute drive to all of the conveniences of Jaco, yet far enough away for peace and serenity.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The bungalow is close to the airport (just a 1.5 hour drive), close to many attractions, tours, surfing, shopping, nightlife, and so much more.

The beach was beautiful and the town is small but nice location. Close to Manual Antonio Reserve and great ziplining.
Hey there, Sheryl! I’m glad you enjoy your time. Please let us know if there’s something we could do better to get those 5 stars. I’ll be sure to mail the jewelry you left behind ASAP!
A great little community! Nicely equipped bungalow with an awesome screened in porch. Good surfing and nice pool. We made a number of new friends. You definitely need a rental car for this property. The restaurants were great in Playa Hermosa. We only went to Jaco for groceries.
Very Nice. Roomy, Well kept.
We enjoyed this property immensely but were disappointed to find that it IS NOT OCEAN VIEW. There are 4 other bungalows between it and the beach. If you look carefully from a corner of the deck you can see a slight glimmer of blue through the trees.
Other than that it was wonderful. The neighbors were quiet (there are other bungalows surrounding it), the bungalow was spacious, kitchen was excellent with new looking sink & quality appliances, AC worked great (it was 36 C when we were there.) The beds and pillows were comfortable and good quality.
The beach was very quiet - sometimes we were the only people within a 1/4 mile. We did not try swimming as the waves were large but the surfers enjoyed them.
The beach road is quiet. We were thankful that we were not closer to the main highway. We had supper close to it a few times and it was very noisy and hard to have a conversation. At the bungalow it was quiet and peaceful.
If you spend time there you might enjoy a drive up into the hills to the East. There are some spectacular views. 4x4 is an asset as the road is pretty steep and rough at places.
If you note noisy birds you might get to see occasional macaws and parakeets on the property.
Hi there! Thanks for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I’m sorry to hear you were disappointed with the view. The costs of the frontline bungalows far exceed what I charge, especially in high season, and being that we are just 15 steps to the pool, I hope the good outweighed the bad!
We hope you return someday! We know you have many choices so we appreciate the business!

Pura Vida for sure....
wonderful spot and perfect for what we were looking for. No crowds, close beach and a pool. We did rent a car for 4 days from Brian and it worked out perfect. Taxi's are also easy to get and this bungalow is a nice walk to plenty of restaurants. Just a wonderful country is Costa Rica. Vanessa was great to work with also.
perfect little bungalow
We loved our time in Costa Rice and our time in this bungalow. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven The beach is across the street and the pool is steps away. Plenty of good food close by and a ton of activities and adventures available too (we booked most of our adventures with top rated guides via trip advisor-super easy-even booked some the night before-loved having a local spanish speaking guide too all were eager to share their country with us and it made me feel safe). Our biggest learning curve was getting used to the crazy drivers and all the people walking and riding bikes on main roads (even at night!!) but we embraced it and it was fine. We went on Jose's crocodile tour, toured Manuel Antonio, hiked and played in waterfalls, lounged on the beautiful beach, watched people surf, shopped in Jaco, tried out multiple area restaurants (We loved Vida Hermosa close by and amazing views-the owner was so kind and remembered us after our first visit). January was a perfect time to explore this beautiful country too. High 80's sunny everyday and we had no problem with bugs. Sunscreen up! Its true you will burn faster here even with sunscreen on so if you're pale like me bring a SPF rashguard to protect yourself. Unwind and enjoy the Pura Vida! Thanks again for sharing your home with us!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Bungalow! The unit is nicely configured, and provides privacy. Beautiful location. We recommend this location to anyone looking for a place to stay outside of a large town. Vanessa (owner), and Brian (property Manager), are a pleasure to work with. Helpful, responsive, and friendly.
Located in the world renowned surfing community of Playa Hermosa, Jaco, our bungalow 19 is one of the best beachfront rentals offered in the area. Nowhere else on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica can you find a rental property at this price with these amazing amenities.
Bungalow 19 is just 10 minutes south of the town of Jaco with all of the shopping, dining and nightlife that you need, yet, our bungalow community is quiet and peaceful with a calm, safe atmosphere.
There are endless activities around, such as hiking, surfing, fishing, wildlife viewing, bird watching, ATVing, ZipLining, and so much more. We are only one hour north of the famous Manuel Antonio National Park. You can do everything or nothing in our little piece of paradise.
