The space

The Casita is located at the front of the property which contains a larger house. The pool is between the main house and the casita.

Guest access

Guest can use the outdoor kitchen and grill and of course the wonderful pool.

Interaction with guests

This is my aunts house and she and her husband live there full time. They are social people and will like to get to know who is staying with them, but they will let you enjoy the space too.

The neighborhood

Playa Hermosa is a small beach town known worldwide for its surfing, especially after it hosted the world surf championship a few years back. Saturday afternoons many surfers and surf fans do fight for parking spots in the afternoon to witness world-class surfing at the weekly surf meets hosted by the Backyard Hotel. Small restaurants, surf shops and other retail are located on the beach which is a 20 min walk or a 2 minute car ride. A yoga center is within 300 meter walking distance. Surf lessons, Zipline booking, horseback riding and other activities can be also booked in the office. Due to the towns location near virgin tropical mountains, you will likely see Scalet macaws on a daily basis. Iguanas roam around the trees, roof and all over the property.

Getting around

The property is located 1.5 hours from San Jose and 10 minutes away from the town of Jaco, where you will find ATMs, nightlife, restaurants, supermarkets and all sorts of retail. For this location it is better if you have a car for convenience. If you plan to go out at night, taxis can easily be hired for pick up and will be available in town for drop off.

Cute little bungalow in a residential area a few minutes drive from Playa Hermosa. (We had a car, but it could be walking distance to the beach if you enjoy long walks!) Rachelle and her husband were very nice and accomodating when our flights were delayed and we couldn't make the normal check-in time. The room is basic- perfect if you are looking for a nice, air conditioned place to sleep and relax after a day in the sun. We jumped in the pool once or twice as well, and it was great having a fridge to store fruit/snacks so the ants didn't get them. Overall a great experience, thank you!

Great deal! Wonderful place. Nothing else needs to be said. It felt off to be honest. Like were in the wrong place because it was so nice relative to how little we paid. Awesome location, highly recommend it!

The surroundings are beautiful, the food is full of flavor and the surf is exciting!!
