The Space

Inspired with a modern design, the house provides lots of natural light and gives the feel of showering in nature. Located in Playa Hermosa just minutes from Jaco, the house is close to the beach, restaurants and a convenience store, this ideal setting is sure to make your vacation great. The house features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, complete kitchen, living room with 32" flat screen with cable TV. There are two queen beds and the sofa converts to sleep one extra person. Outside you can relax on the deck. There is A/C, hot water and cable in each of the units. We have two wifi hotspots that reach out over the houses for surfing the net when not surfing the waves.

The grounds are spacious and well manicured with an inviting pool. There is a BBQ area. Pets are welcome on the grounds. The complex is gated.

There is a family that lives full time at the Lofts if there is anything you need.

  • We enjoyed our stay at the loft: it was clean and spacious, the pool was lovely, and Frank - the onsite manager was amazing! He does not speak English, but could nonetheless bring us anything we needed and solve any problem - even in the middle of the night...
    Rachelle was very responsive and accommodated all our needs. It was a wonderful vacation :)

  • John and Rachelle are fantastic! Super nice hosts. The loft was our home for about a month. It was clean, new and the beds were slumber havens. John had excellent restaurant and activity recommendations. We loved it and plan to go again next Winter.

    Plus, Hermosa Beach was so beautiful! If you go, make sure you learn to surf!

  • Rachelle & John were fantastic hosts. The loft was a bit of a hike (the main road had a small shoulder on which the traffic travelled at very high speeds) to the beach that we only attempted once. The rest of the time John was very helpful in driving us into Jaco or picking us up from wherever we landed. They were very helpful in hooking us up with people for surfing & paddleboarding.

    Playa Hermosa was gorgeous...much better than staying down the road in Jaco which is somewhat dirty & very touristy (great shopping though). Hermosa was quaint and quiet with nice waves and beautiful beaches.

    The loft itself was clean & cozy. We were very comfortable. We bought groceries and cooked a few times and we had most everything we needed. The groundskeeper, Frank, was very sweet and took great care in keeping the lofts maintained. We would definitely recommend staying here.

  • was there with an old college buddy. we were there for a month to relax, surf sightsee and look for potential property. we enjoyed the lofts, they were safe,clean and convenient. the thing that really made the stay enjoyable was rachelle, john,frank and anna. rach and john went out of their way to accommodate our needs. they were very helpful with advice and recommendations for our travel and excursions around the country. we booked our day trips with them and were satisfied with both quality and price. they frequently gave us rides to town and we met them for dinner on occasion. all in all a very pleasant experience with absolutely no problems. would highly recommend, especially for longer stays. only recommendation is make sure you have transportation. we rented a car after our first week and were much happier after we had access to the town (jaco) and los suenos (great restaurants- Lanterna,italian and Bambu-asian.

  • Rachelle and her husband are great hosts. We arrived later than expected but they graciously showed us the loft.

    The loft itself was very clean, spacious, and the AC was a life saver. Make sure to follow the instructions that Rachelle provides to get to the loft or you may be wondering around for a bit.

    Any questions that we had, they were willing to answer. I highly recommend Rachelle as a host.
