The Space

3 Bedroom villa with tropical garden and pool, located 1 mile from the beach in a lovely, established gated community with 24 hour guard and quiet neighbors.

The room available is a large double bedroom with AC, Queen size bed and private en-suite bathroom with extra large shower. It occupies one end of the house so is quite private.

Guests are free to use the house facilities including laundry, kitchen, garden, pool, WIFI internet, Cable TV etc.

I run a surf camp and can offer cheap rates for surf lessons with transport included!

We are located about a mile from Hermosa beach and village with some restaurants a bar and a small supermarket. Bustling Jaco with more shopping and entertainment options is a 15 minute drive away.

There are some buses from the end of the dirt road (1 mile) but I recommend a hire car to fully take advantage of the local area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mi estadía fue fenomenal, Nancy es la mejor anfitriona del mundo. Es super amable, servicial, simpática y relajada. La casa es espectacular, con un patio grande, contacto con la naturaleza y una piscina hermosa. El cuarto es amplio, cómodo y dormí super bien. Espero volver pronto. El residencial es muy tranquilo y seguro.

  • My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Nancy's little villa -
    nice and safe location,
    good sleep thanks to the king-sized bed (maybe the two fans and the AirCon weren't too bad either),
    "chill out loungeS" in the living room or on the beautiful terraza,
    cute little doggy Henry, always open for a pat (WE MISS HIM!)
    and last but not least a pretty lovely host, always open for a chat.
    If you're looking for a laid-back atmosphere plus healthy rest, you'll find it here!
    Both of us would highly recommend this place!

  • Nancy is a fun and accommodating Hostess! Her place is located In a a secure neighborhood that is safe. The pool is a very nice touch, especially since it was very hot when I visited.

  • Nancy's place was perfect! The room is large with a terrific ensuite and we made good use of the sunny backyard and pool. Excellent location, only a few minutes drive to Playa Hermosa, a quieter beach with great surfing and a few beach-front restaurants. The busier Jaco is just a 10min drive away where you can find plenty more places to eat and shop. Nancy gave us some excellent tips on best places to eat and surf - highly recommend a stay!

  • My Friend and I spent a really great time with Nancy.
    We went surfing together and chatted with a glass of wine. The house is beautiful, the room and the bathroom are gigantic. Everything was perfect. I recommend to everyone who wants to go to Jaco to stay at Playa Hermosa ( small village with amazing waves ).

  • It was very fun riding the bikes into town and cooling off in the pool! She is very helpful with our questions and had great suggestions.

  • We only had one night to spend but Nancy was super accommodating and put us up at the last minute. She is super laid back and makes you feel at home; we only wish that we had more time to spend! Beautiful house with nice pool, very comfortable. We will back anytime we come to Hermosa, thanks Nancy!

  • AWESOME time in Playa Hermosa! The house is a bit off the beaten path from Jaco but ended up being perfect because we preferred Playa Hermosa anyways. Nancy gave us surf lessons (we both were able to stand up with her help!) and transportation around the city, it was perfect! She even told us about a surf competition and BBQ later that night in Playa Hermosa so we stopped by that and really got a more "local" experience which we loved. Nancy is so awesome and is a living example of the movie Blue Crush if you have seen it haha! Would definitely stay there again!

  • Nancy is very friendly and welcoming. The place exceeded our expectations. The room is a large master bedroom, and the neighborhood is very quiet. We slept like babies that night. The backyard is quite impressive. There is a nice pool, and a big, fancy gazebo with a hammock in the middle of it. The whole place is like a mini tropical resort. A+ for sure!!!

I am British, living in Costa Rica for the past 5 years. Now running a surf company offering camps and trips based in Playa Hermosa. When I'm not surfing I love riding on the beach with friends.
