Stay here! What an amazing house. The beach is in the backyard and the pool is right next door. You can see people surfing in the early morning from the 2nd floor. Alvaro is great host too. Very communicative and attentive. The a/c and the power plugs were not working on the 2nd floor and as soon as I told Alvaro he sent someone to get everything fixed. I'm staying here on my next visit to CR.
Once again, for the second year in a row, Alvaro and Ivelize's beautiful home did not disappoint, in fact, it was even more enjoyable than I had remembered. Several of our friends joined my wife and I for a week of relaxation, adventure and most of all Pura Vida!!! This home is located on what I consider the most fun, beautiful beach in Costa Rica, Playa Hermosa. Because A & I's house is located on the Central Pacific Coast, it makes day trips to Jaco, Manuel Antonio, Punta Leona and the Dominical areas an easy trip. I love this place! My only fear in giving it such a nice review is that next year it might be all booked up when I want to return for a third year!!
Alvaro And Ivelize Gonzalez have an amazing house. The pictures do not do this place justice. The house is so much better than we expected. They were wonderful hosts and it was very easy to check-in. The views from the second floor are amazing and the house is a stone's throw away from the beach. There is also a very nice community pool that is on the beach as well. I would stay here again in a heart beat.
Hola! Me and my friends had an awesome time at Alvaro's place. Beautiful house and neighbourhood, very close to the beach. Alvaro is a great host who greeted us at arrival and made sure we felt at home. We would def come back again and I really wanna recommend it to fellow AirBnb travellers. Regards Andre
Several adult members of our family stayed at this wonderful beach home on Playa Hermosa for four days and absolutely had a wonderful time. The home was all it was advertised to be and more. The beautifully designed and decorated home was only topped by its convenience to the neighborhood's amenities, the beach at Hermosa and association's giant pool. Alvaro, the owner, made sure we knew of all of the important aspects of staying at this beach home prior to our arrival and explained all the amenities that made our stay there very enjoyable. We hope to come back again next year!!!
An almost 60 year old guy, that still loves the Adventures in life, and shares them as much as I can whith my kids and wife Ive. We started the first Outdoor Retail Store in Costa Rica around 23 years ago, that is still working. We also heve rented real state around San Jose,and in the country side.
Love the water, and everything that has to do whith it.
We live un a really nice first floor apartment in Escazu, Costa Rica surounded by nature, and have a house in Playa Hermosa de Jaco, a beach that has waves all year round that we will get in Airbnb, verry soone.
I love to work, party, do all type of sports, and travel, our way, as much as possible.
I love to dance, almost anything, When we travel we like to be active, walk as much as possible and use public transportation. We don´t like to spend too much money in a Hotel, and we don´t like palces that are part of a chane of Hotels, or all inclusives. We prefere small out of the normal places were we can interact, talking, eating or drinking whith the locals way of doing things. We also like to travel doing some kind of sport or exercise, like going and participating in a Surfing Champinship in Northern California, or almost anywhere.
I have 3 kids, a girl and 2 boys, and a beautifull wife and I try to keep in as much in good shape as possible, so I can enjoy them and they enjoy me as long as it lasts.
We love and enjoy our country verry much. I consider it a playground!!!!
