About This Listing
This spacious (3500 square foot), comfortable and beautiful home was lovingly created for a family who loves sun, fun, surfing and security. It is located in a gated community about 6 minutes drive from Jaco beach and you only need to walk about 50 meters to Playa Hermosa beach, world renowned as being one of the best SURFING areas you can find in Costa Rica or anywhere in the world, for that matter. If you prefer, you can walk 50 meters to the club house and the swimming pool, if you prefer to swim that way.
This home has two floors with and additional third floor terrace. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, and one of the 4 bedrooms with air conditioning and a queen-sized bed, full bathroom, and a terrace under a palapa that is great for preparing your bar-b-qued dinner or just hanging around, enjoying the company of others or just your solitude. In this dowstairs living area, you can experiencethe delicious, cool sea breezes that circulate, assisted whith fans that help the gentle breezes waft confortably over you.
The second floor has the Master bedroom with its own bathroom plus two other large bedrooms that share a full bathroom, a very spacious T.V. / entertainment room, and a balcony that extends the entire width of the house. In this second floor you can also experience similar sea breezes as downstairs whith central air conditioning if you choose. From here you have expansive ocean views that are available also from the second and third floor balconies. This home sleeps 12 very comfortably.
We are part of the Hermosa Palms Neighborhood Association which manages the community. The Club House is about 25 meters from the house and it has its own well cared for, kid-friendly swimming pool.

We are in the center of everything that happends in our CENTRAL PACIFIC.
Detailed house rules will guiven to you upon arrival. Two things that are NOT allowed, PETS of any kind, and SMOKING inside the house.
Alvaro and Ivelize made us all feel so welcome, their place was exactly as it is in the photos- even more beautiful. The beds were so comfortable, the rooms large and spacious. The villa has everything you need and more, we easily cooked meals and enjoyed eating them on the lovely patio. The communal pool is a few steps away as is the beach. The pool has a wonderful pool bar that is open most days and serves smoothies, cocktails and delicious food.
I strongly advise a car for this villa as we did not have one and it cost us 20$ for a 15 min one way drive to Jaco by taxi.
Alvero was very accommodating and when I asked for an Iron he delivered one to me within the hour. Whenever I rang he answered promptly and was very helpful.
Book here and do not hesitate! Your only regret will be not booking it for long enough :) Pura Vida!!
Thank you for your coments…
It was great to have you here visiting…
I thing you guys are some of the few that really got a tast of our TROPICAL weather, since you came in a verry hot time of the year.
So glad you enjoy!!!!
You are welcome anytime!!!!
Pura vida and good luck!
Alvaro was responsive, easy to deal with, and provided an accurate listing. The property was great, right next to the ocean, nicely decorated, and felt secure.
As mentioned by another reviewer, the pictures do not do this place justice. It has a great "beach house" feel to it and a great layout. Good location for those looking to surf in Hermosa and is less than a 10 minute drive to Jaco.
Words and pictures can't describe how beautiful this house and gated community really are. From the view, the spacious rooms and bathrooms, the living room and outside patio area, swim up pool bar, and amazing beach this truly was paradise. There were 8 adults and Alvaro and Ivelize were very helpful before our trip, helping us plan and navigate to the area. Miguel, the property manager hooked us up with amazing excursions. We felt completely safe with a security person there every day, and everyone was extremely nice. We all truly believe this was better than any resort and was one of the best vacations we've experienced. We all agree that we would like to come back and stay again.
Recomendado 100%, la casa cómoda, muy bonita y limpia. La vista a la playa es espectacular. Además don Alvaro siempre estuvo pendiente de que todo saliera bien!
Alvaro est un hôte charmant disponible et très compréhensif. Il répond très vite aux mails et veille à satisfaire aux mieux ses hôtes. La maison est bien décrite, confortable et accueillante. Le guide pratique est bien fait. Nous avons apprécié les bonbonnes d'eau à notre arrivée. La résidence est charmante et très bien située sur la plage Hermosa. La piscine est très agréable et donne directement sur la plage magnifique d'Hermosa.
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!!
About the Host, Alvaro And Ivelize
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!!!!
