The Hermosa Lofts are conveniently located 900 meters from the coast road and 1.5 km from the famous Hermosa beach with world class surfing. The vibrant town of Jaco is only 4km away for night life, groceries and activities.
The closest international airport is SJO, only 1.5 hours away. The house is close to National Parks, zip-lining, and all other great activities.
Playa Hermosa is a small surf community which is quickly gaining popularity as it is away from the hustle and bustle of Jaco. It has the most consistent surf break all year round, but is also one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.
There is a surf competition every Saturday, sometimes small and sometimes it's a major event.
It is best to have a car, but taxis are available. Jaco one way will cost $10-$14 depending on where you are going. There is a public bus at the end of the street that runs between Puntarenas and Quepos, so you can go to both national parks (Manual Antonio & Carrara) by bus.

Great place, clean, relatively new and the person in charge of the house is very helpful.
It's better for 4 people since the sofa bed is not comfortable at all.
The house ise very nice, fully equiped, and with an excellent location.
The loft is well located. A few minutes from Jaco. One km from the surfing area on Hermosa (best to drive and park), and about 70 km from Manuel Antonio National Park. The pool is nice, the apartment was clean and well appointed. Safe. And you can cook your own meals if you want. Was perfect for our day trip to Manuel Antonio. And we got to watch the surfers show off in the setting sun of the beach in front of the Surfers club. A typical vacation rental. Good experience.
My new favorite place in Playa Hermosa, great place & lovation with a modern and comfortable design.
Rachelle and her husband very kind and helpful as always.
Very recommended place, will be back soon!
My boyfriend and I were backpacking in Guatemala and Costa Rica and I decided that we would stay for our last night at Rachelle's and John's place. I chose it because I wanted to visit Playa Hermosa and Jaco, and due to the place's proximity from the airport (~1hour's drive). The place was more than what we expected, partly because we had been in hostels during the duration of our trip and partly because we didn't expect the loft to be so large. There was a pool facing the loft and the beach was a 2-3 mins drive away. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a contemporary, modern accommodations. The place was very clean and well maintained.
Rachelle was extremely easy to work with, arranging our accommodation last minute on a very busy weekend.
The accommodation provided everything we needed and is in a terrific location close to Playa Hermosa, a quieter beach with great surf and terrific places to eat.
This vacation spot was amazing. It was my first trip to Costa Rica and would return to this accommodation. One thing I would do differently, however, would be to rent a car at the airport and have transportation during our full stay in the country. We were a bit isolated at this location until we decided on a car rental to get to and from the beach. The beach was about 10 minute drive from the house. However, we did have a pool which was part of the site and would go out for an evening swim at 10 pm before bedtime. WOW!! That was really amazing and relaxing at the same time. Our hosts were very kind and did pick us up from the bus and took us to Jaco upon request. All and all it was a unique and pleasant stay at their resort.
