The space

Relax and enjoy nature at its finest in this 4 bedroom, 4 bath ocean-view. The quiet surroundings are amazing as one views the Macaws and Toucans as they land in the trees right by the house.

This rental property has great privacy to our guests. The home boasts 3 bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms, plus a third bathroom, an equipped kitchen and dining table that seats 6 comfortably. All glassware and flatware. The is also a 1 bedroom/ 1 bathroom loft house with sleeps 3 additional guests.

Most of one’s leisure time in Costa Rica is spent outdoors and this home is perfect in that regard as well. The decks, which contain plenty of chairs and tables, are covered for protection from the sun which can be very strong at 9 degrees Latitude! The pool that is ideal for swimming or relaxing or simply lounging with a cocktail. When not in the pool, simply sit back and enjoy the beautiful hills and ocean views while enjoying your favorite snack and cocktails.

The beauty of a mountain home in Playa Hermosa is that one can truly enjoy the best nature has to offer and yet be only a quick fifteen minute ride to the fun and excitement of Jaco, the world famous beach town. Whether it is excellent dining, the excitement of the night life or simply shopping for that great Costa Rican treasure, the town of Jaco cannot be beat. It’s crowded, it’s fun, it’s exciting … but it’s also a place to escape from to enjoy the true romantic, natural beauty that Costa Rica has to offer in Playa Hermosa. What better place to escape than this wonderful home that is just minutes from the beautiful beaches. Those who vacation at rental homes at sea level are often disappointed with the amount of insects and lack of breeze that exist at this low elevation ... these problems do not exist with homes at the higher elevations such as Vista Del Mar.

Interaction with guests

The house is completely private and gated, with a great view. You will interact with nature, toucans, Macaws etc.

The neighborhood

Life will never be dull in Playa Hermosa! Everything is available locally, whether it’s a short trip to the magnificent national parks, in-shore or deep sea fishing, the incredible beaches and surfing, zip-lining through the rain forests or golfing at the beautiful Los Suenos Marriott resort.

Getting around

When renting Vista Del Mar, it is best to have a car (4x4 preferred). There is no public transport on the street. The closest bus stop is 1 km way. Taxis can be called to provide transport if you did not want to rent a car.

Great host who took us to the house which is a few minutes from the main office. House is in good shape and we would use it again.

Rachelle and Jon's villa is well located, close to Playa Hermosa. The garden and swimming pool are nice. However, the house needs some improvements: lack of dishes, poor bedding quality. 2 toilets were out of service, one airconditioner system didn't work and welcome was not very warm...

Response from Rachelle:
We are sorry your experience was not better. The owner of the house has since purchased some additional dishes and bedding. We were not informed of the problem of the toilets or the air conditioning, otherwise these would have been fixed right away. We are glad you enjoyed the garden, swimming pool and location of the house, Costa Rica is at its best in the outdoors.

Hey Judy: Thanks for the feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed the house and all the great birds, I said that tree was awesome!! Sorry you did not feel my information was timely, but I reviewed all the communication with Moira via Airbnb and I replied to everything the same I am not sure why you feel I did not answer the questions she had?? Sometimes a few hours may pass or perhaps overnight, but in this case every communicated was answered the same day. Again thanks for the feedback!

Rachelle was a gracious host considering our flight delay led to change in plans. There were some issues which were dealt with quickly. A beautiful quiet setting with large outdoor space. Nice to have 4 bathrooms. Perfect place for group of surfers like ourselves. There are some minor improvements needed, but overall we really enjoyed this property.
