About Kelie Limehouse
I moved here from Charleston, South Carolina in 2002 and have loved it ever since. Our favorite activity is hiking the mountains behind us with a rescue dog named Zen and an Australian Sheppard named Claudia. I love to cook, and grow most of my herbs and spices. We have several fruit trees and last year started growing coffee & chocolate, so we're hoping one day to offer coffee from our own crop! I have a lot of dinner parties; there's nothing better than good conversation, good food and good wine! I used to travel quite a bit, and mostly stayed at Marriott & Hyatt, so I wanted to offer vacation rentals with the same comfort, but with a familiar feeling of home, and some privacy you don't find in a hotel. We've been managing vacation rentals here for many years, and recently built two that are in our neighborhood (Vista Lapas).
Kelie Limehouse purchased this House in 2016
Why Kelie Limehouse chose Playa Hermosa
Unbelievable views - from the ocean, the valley & the mountains. We're on a peninsula, so very private and you see the wildlife everywhere. I feel we have the best of everything; the ocean, the mountains and the valley. When the clouds roll into the valley, it's just breathtaking. And when we have the electrical rain storms that light up the ocean - it's a light show that can be mesmerizing.
What makes this House unique
Close to everything but very private and quiet. It's nice to go out and see what's happening at the beach and in Jaco, but it's nice to get away from the crowds, cook a nice dinner and enjoy some wine on the terrace.

A beautiful spot for awesome views !
We loved Casa Verde un playa Hermosa! Top of the line appliances, fixtures and plunge pool. The view is breathtaking! It was quiet and private - we heard only the birds and insects. Fresh fruit and eggs were part of an unexpected welcome basket - icing on the cake !
Thank you for your review Diane. Hope to see you again!
Casa Verde is the most amazing vacation home we have ever stayed in. Kelie is a wonderful host who stayed in touch with us from the moment we made our reservation. She had fresh eggs and fruit waiting on us when we arrived. The views from the pool of the ocean and surrounding valleys are fantastic. We really hated to leave the home to go to other activities. Kelie has an impressive list of activities and restaurants to visit which makes it easy to plan your days. My wife and I were staying with our two grown sons and we had a car rental which really made for some great exploring of places Kelie had suggested. Wish we could have stayed longer. If we get back to Costa Rica, we know where we are staying - Casa Verde. Thanks Kelie!
Thanks so much Jimmy - I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed Casa Verde! Hope to see you again.
This rental property is BEAUTIFUL! It was the perfect size for my husband and me, plus our 2 kids (ages 17 and 20). The house and pool were spotless, the gated community felt very safe, and the views were AMAZING!! The owner, Kelie, was invaluable with her tips on rental cars, food, tours, and even taxi drivers! Having her right down the street was a definite bonus! (Thanks Kelie ...for answering ALL my questions EVERY day!!) This was our first trip to Costa Rica but hope it won’t be our last! And when we return, we know where we want to stay ... Casa Verde!
Thanks so much Jennifer! It was my pleasure. After 17 years here, it's easy for me to answer questions and never an inconvenience. Hope to see your family again.
This is the BEST home we've ever rented. The layout, location, and every single detail are just perfection. But even more importantly, is that the house comes with Kelie as your host! From the moment we booked, she was helpful. She immediately emailed us a PDF guide to the area that she has put together over her many years living there. She arranged tours for us at discounted rates, shared her free range chicken eggs, and even made us the most amazing tuna towers we've ever had with tuna she'd caught out fishing. Overall, this is just an amazing property with an even more amazing host.
Thanks so much Kasey - it was a pleasure having you and your family - loved listening to the girls playing in the pool :) Hope to see you again.
This place was just perfect for our family getaway. We took both of our sons 18 & 20 and this location couldn't have been more perfect. Kellie was in touch with us and checked in often. She was so helpful with planning things for us and offering us advice on where to eat and what to do. The eggs she brings you were a lovely treat for breakfast!! The house was quiet and peaceful and we felt so safe. We sat out by the pool every morning and had coffee and watched the sunrise and listened to nature. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious and very nice. We rented a car in San Jose. I highly recommend getting a driver like Kellie mentions. The driver takes you to Jaco where you can rent a car much easier. Navigating our way from the airport to the house was NOT easy at all. We had a wonderful trip and wonderful memories were made!
Thank you Candace! I do try to warn everyone about driving near the airport. There are NO rental cars at the airport so trying to get on the correct freeway to leave San Jose can be frustrating & very difficult. Once on the main highway there are only three different roads to take to get to us, but driving in San Jose is, like you say, NOT easy at all. Downloading offline map & directions from whatever car company you choose will help, but they are ALL off airport grounds by a few miles.
Thank you so much for choosing Casa Verde for your son's graduation gift!
Enjoyed our stay here
We just recently stayed here in April 2019 for our first trip to Costa Rica. It was 2 couples, and this house was the perfect size. Each room was big, bright and very roomy. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom and large walk in shower. The house was decorated to feel like you were at home, had nice pieces of art and local culture. Location is in Playa Hermosa which was a short 10 minute drive to Jaco and it was reachable by cab. Kelie was a great host, super helpful and nice, very knowledgeable of the area and of suggestions on what to see and do. We were left some fresh eggs upon arrival, and my boyfriend and I had them for breakfast one day, these were the best eggs we had the whole trip! The place was very clean, the linens were soft and freshly washed, towels were clean and it had all amenities one would need for a nice comfortable stay.
Thank you for choosing Casa Verde for your first Costa Rica vacation! It really is a perfect house for couples traveling together, that was my idea when I designed it! Hope to see you again.
We're about 10 minutes to Jaco, where there are several great restaurants and bars. We have up to date calendar on live music at the various venues in Jaco and Playa Hermosa. We're located in Playa Hermosa, a small town, or village, and not as touristy as Jaco. It's quiet where we are, which is something we love about this area, and if you want the night life, Jaco is a short drive away. About a mile from us are a few beach restaurants and bars.
