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 high-quality chairs and tables, are covered for protection from the sun which can be very strong at 9 degrees Latitude!

When not in the pool, simply sit back and enjoy the beautiful mountain 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 ten 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 mountain elevations such as Vista Del Mar.
This property just completed a renovation including all new furniture, new beds with new mattresses, new air-conditioners, new clothes washer and dryer, new lighting fixtures, etc.

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.
Excellent location with a gorgeous view. Thanks to the caretaker John for fixing the way in for us.
Rachelle and her husband were great hosts. We enjoyed staying at the house they manage. We would definitely come back again!
