We offer six classy and comfortable rooms, each decorated in a tasteful and simple manner . We are located on the beach in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, 20 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) in Liberia. Playa Hermosa is a family-oriented beach with small waves, making it perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, paddle boarding and kayaking. The location is also good as a base for taking day trips to see beautiful waterfalls, the Palo Verde National Park (where you can see white-faced monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, and many other animals and birds close up), horseback riding, tubing, canopy tours (zip lining), fishing and surfing. During your stay, we guarantee an adventure a day – or the time to relax and enjoy what we have to offer here at Hermosa Palm's B&B.
It is a family oriented, safe and secure, pet friendly oasis just minutes walk from the beach and 6km from Playa de Coco for entertainment, shopping, banks, restaurants, tours, and lots of people watching. There are several great restaurants walking distance from our hotel some are directly on the beach, where you can enjoy good local food, drinks, live music, meet some interesting people or just watch the ocean and sunsets. There are many different types of birds, monkeys, lizards and different types of wild life close to us and some of the best fishing in Costa Rica. Also, we are located to some of the best beaches and surfing in the world.
Interaction with Guests
We live on the premises, and try to help the guests with everything they need. Tours directions as to where to go, introduce them to some locals, dinner party, drinks and try to make your stay comfortable and fun.
The neighborhood is true Costa Rica. It is quiet, and less then 50 meters to the beach. Excellent restaurants ranging from sushi, French cooking, and of course local cuisine all within walking distance. Out our back door you will encounter the local wildlife like howler monkeys, iguanas and a large variety of bird species.
The Owners, Duke Halik and Krista Deal, came to Costa Rica from Ontario Canada in 2013 looking for a vacation spot they could enjoy with their family and friends. They also arrived with their two cats" Bruce and Lee and rescued two dogs " Jack and Bobby" in January of 2014 here in Costa Rica . Duke and Krista love to travel , both have visited several counties and decided to make their life together in Costa Rica which has claimed their hearts and imagination. Be sure to say hello to them when you visit. You can see them walking their dogs on the beach in the morning and afternoon . They love to hear from their guests and will help you have the best time in Costa Rica.
Walking close to public transit, taxi or we can arrange you car rental if needed.
We ask that you make yourselves at home and are open to any suggestions and comments.
We stayed here for 7 days and had a great time.
There is so much to do and see in Costa Rica that time just flew by.
You are walking distance from the beach and if you want more of a party atmosphere, Coco Beach is only a $10 cab ride away. We did not rent a car and to be honest, didn't really need one.
Duke and Krista are always available at anytime if you need anything. There bed and breakfast is quiet and clean.
Go here if you want to have a worry free time.
WOW!!! What a great location, just a minute walk to the beach. Duke and Krista were very accommodating, incredibly personable, and gave us great advice about where to eat, drink, and visit. The common areas at OceanNest were nice to have access to--shady picnic area and open air kitchen-- and we were able to do laundry which was wonderful. The beach was also great because there were a ton of shady areas to escape the heat of the sun. Restaurants/bars lined the beach strip (but not in a way that was loud or intrusive), so we took advantage of enjoying a margarita on the beach and of watching the sunset while eating at the restaurant--hooray for Taco Tuesday! We wish our stay at OceanNest had been longer.
Danke für die zwei tollen Wochen die wir bei euch beiden verbringen durften. Die Gastfreundschaft und auch die Hilfsbereitschaft war sehr gut. Täglich frische Früchte und selbst gemachten Kuchen war hervorragend. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl und können dieses Haus nur weiter empfehlen

Great stay with Dusan and Krista. Super friendly and helpful if you need help with local things.
Very comfortable room setting and clean. Quiet a night.
Fruit breakfast in the morning was a nice touch.
They are located right smack next to the beach. Several restaurants around, short walk to local supermarket.
Would highly recommend for all.
Duke and Krista were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble, from helping with trips etc to providing us with a kettle ! Ocean Nest is a lovely, very relaxed BnB with spacious rooms and only a short hop to the beach. Highly recommended.
Booked 2 nights. Fantastic experience! The owners were the most delightful and hospitable hosts. I felt welcome from the moment I arrived. They thoroughly explained where to go, where to eat and what to do in the area. The room was very clean. Very close to the beach! Highly recommend a stay here.
My 11 year old grandson and I booked two nights with Dusan and Krista so we could have some downtime on the beach after being on the Osa Peninsula for 10 days. I'm so glad we did! Ocean Nest is a wonderful spot, and Dusan and Krista were awesome hosts. The place is as shown, but better. They had everything we needed, and were the most accommodating hosts.
Our room was spotless. Everything worked. The shower was hot, the a.c. was cool. Every morning there was a tray outside my door with a carafe of hot coffee, home made banana bread one morning, lemon bread the other morning, a full platter of fruits, fruit juice and granola bar for my grandson, and if we needed anything else, we just had to ask and it was provided. (Like more coffee for this coff-a-holic!)
There's also a barbecue, full guest kitchen if you want to cook your own dinner, a library, phone for local calls, laundry facilities, and outdoor showers.
They arranged a beautiful sunset/snorkel/sailboat trip for us within an hour's notice. They also mentioned a new seafood restaurant about 300 metres up the street - best yellow fin tuna I've ever had.
The place is very secure, including room safes, motion lights, locked driveway gates, and two wonderful dogs, Jack and Bobby, that are fun and protective at the same time. (Jack slept under my grandson's bed - they bonded.) The walk to the beach is maybe 300 metres at the most.
I need to mention again how clean and tidy their place is, with all amenities you'd need.
Dusan and Krista are very well liked in the community and can set you up with any adventure you're looking for. Howler monkeys came to visit us while we were having coffee, and there's a resident iguana that is very cool.
We'll be going back to Costa Rica next year, and will include a stay with Dusan and Krista, but it will be longer than two nights. There's just so much to see and do and Ocean Nest is in the perfect location to call home while in the Guanacaste region.
Thanks again for making our final day so memorable!
