This little casita is ideal for the traveler that does not want to spend a lot of money on accommodation. Situated less that 1 km / .5 mile from Playa Hermosa Surf beach it is great for surfers or backpackers. Close to bars, restaurants and store at the beach. Close to bus stop for Manual Antonio or Puntarenas. Only a 10 min taxi ride to Jaco.
The casita is a self contained private room with en-suite bathroom. It has a twin bed and a futon to sleep up to 2 people. It is located on the grounds of a larger family house and grounds are gated for security. There is no A/C, but the casita enjoys the sea breezes and there is a ceiling fan. There is a single bed and a futon to accommodate up to 2 people.
We spent two days in the casita at the beginning of our trip and it was perfect. Very basic but nice and the fan kept the room cool even without ac. We were able to enjoy lovely, inexpensive breakfasts by the pool next door at las brisas and free wifi. The best part was how friendly Rachelle and family were with helpful hints and rides to the beach. Thanks guys!
Rachelle & John were wonderful hosts. They were very flexible and generous with the amenities at their property- they helped with travel to and from town, I was able to use the pool, had wifi (not in the casita, but on the grounds, was able to rent a bike from them, and was able purchase breakfast for $3. They are very knowledgeable about the area and were able to help with questions I had about day trips or traveling. I'd be very happy to stay there again and would highly recommend them as hosts!!!
