Tastefully appointed and with A/C, you'll discover a relaxing change of pace in our home . Situated among fruit trees and exotic tropical garden is the oasis you seek for your CR vacation. Just minutes to the beach, come join us for a vacation of a lifetime! Pura Vida!

The space

Surrounded by an 8 foot hibiscus hedge and artisan gate, you are secluded on our double lot, but not far from beaches and attractions. Our two bedroom home has a queen bed in the Master BR and two twins in the 2nd BR. A full bath nestles between the two bedrooms, and an outside shower cools you after a day of beaching or hiking. Our private back patio is equipped with a gas grill and dining table with benches. Our front porch offers shaded seating as you watch the hummingbirds and butterflies flutter about. There are several hammocks for relaxing outside.

The entire gated double lot site is yours during your stay. A safe box is available for your valuables and the home is equipped with an alarm system.

Our property manager will greet you, show you the house and grounds, and help get you settled in. He is a native, speaks perfect English, and is a wealth of information on his beautiful country. In addition, he is an expert surfer incase you want to check out the waves!

Mostly ticos (natives) and Americans live in our neighborhood, which is well maintained by the owners. Everyone is friendly and ready to help with directions, etc. Our town has several great restaurants, two bars (one is on the beach), tour operators offering excursions that include zip lining and ATV tours, and a general store that sells a great variety of groceries and household items.

The public bus stops on our corner and the bus system covers the entire country. However, it is not air conditioned and not for the faint at heart as it gets very crowded. Many ticos commute to school and work on the bus system. If you want to see a lot during your stay, rent a 4X4 or car. Many non-essential roads are dirt roads and a 4X4 is best.

If hiking is on your vacation list, bring hiking boots or similar footwear. Also, water socks are good if you plan on exploring rivers and waterfalls. Always lock your car and keep valuables out of sight as to not invite trouble. As is the case in any city or country, be aware of your surroundings.

Perfect place to get away and unwind. Away from the hustle and bustle located a very short distance away from some incredible surf. Beautiful home well maintained with incredible A/C. Waking up every morning and seeing different wild life was amazing. My favorite were the Macaws right outside the front door. For my wife it was the toucans. Everything you need a short drive away. If you want peacefulness and serenity this is your place.

Great little place a short drive to Hermosa beach. Well equipped and clean with beautiful, secure grounds. Check in was easy and the home was easy to find. Only downfall is that it is not within walking distance to the beach but it was fine for us since we had a car.

Everything about this house was wonderful. Oscar was there waiting when I arrived and told me everything I needed to know. The house itself is great - secluded, tropical, safe, and quiet (besides birds chirping). Location is very convenient to Jaco for food and touristy stuff, and Manuel Antonio for amazing day trips. The house is down a dirt road that was recently repaved with new compacted dirt and is nice and smooth. If you continue past the house the road gets a little rough, but you can drive up the mountain and get amazing views of the ocean. Also there's a waterfall back there. All in all it was a great place to stay and I will be returning if I am ever in the area.

Aileen was more than helpful and friendly, in close contact the entire time with instant responses. Their home was perfect! All you need, nothing more nothing less. Sock coffee is my new favorite. The yard was beautiful with cashew trees and hibiscus surrounding it. This was our favorite place we stayed (out of 3) in Costa Rica. Exploring Rancho Tranquilo was an added bonus! We picked starfruit right off the tree and ate it. Delicious! We got to see squirrel monkeys which Oscar said are rare. There is nothing like laying on a hammock mountainside with a toucan 20 feet away. Oscar was helpful in guiding us to the waterfall nearby. Thank you for the perfect experience!

What a little gem at the end of a dusty road. The garden is just beautiful and the kids loved watching the iguanas sunbake. Playa hermosa has a great beach with lots of dining options. Jaco is close enough for the daily expresso fix and souvenir shopping. People are so friendly. The house is furnished with all the necessities and comfort one needs. Thanks for letting us share that special place.

Aileen: A lover of travel since I was a young girl, I fell in love with Costa RIca from the moment I arrived! The people are hospitable with contagious smiles, the lifestyle is free of stress with emphasis on family and friends, and the endless beauty is everywhere! Let me share this blue zone country where you will make friends for life and be planning your next trip before you leave! Scarlet macaws and other exotic birds, several types of monkeys, sloths the largest array of butterflies in the world, and many adventures await you. I've been going back for 11 years and plan on retirement in CR when the day comes. It's Pura Vida (national slogan) all the way!
