Enjoy Morning visits from howler monkeys, beautiful birds and iguanas while drinking your coffee. Be mesmerized by turtles coming out to nest on the beach.

Relax with a book in the shade by the pool while the kids play endless games of Marco Polo. You can do it all when you stay at Casa Hermosa.

Casa Hermosa is located in the exclusive gated community of Palm Beach Estates in Playa Grande. Playa Grande, which is named one of the top 10 in the World by Travel and Leisure in 2013, is located immediately north of the beach community of Tamarindo and is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world. It is also famous as a major nesting site for the highly endangered leatherback sea turtle, the largest reptile on Earth. The house is ideally located on the southern end of the 3 kilometer beach, less than 200 meters from the water and within the sound of the crashing surf.

The Spanish styled home has been professionally decorated to reflect the natural beauty of the area and thoughtfully organized to meet all your needs. The 3000 sq. ft home has 4 bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queen beds and 4 bunk beds) and 4 full bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate 10-12 people. The house has been recently renovated with new furniture, entertainment center and decorations.

The front room is a casual space and perfect for kids of all ages to gather, watch movies, and play games. The front room can be opened up to connect with the great room, providing a spacious place for everyone to gather but still provide cozy areas to meet everyone’s needs. In the great room, you will find an entertainment center, including a new 60” flat screen TV, DVD player and music system for MP3 players, high speed WiFi internet. The gourmet kitchen is beautifully laid out with granite counters, breakfast bar, a full stainless steel freezer and refrigerator, European gas stove, microwave oven, dishwasher, and custom cabinets. This kitchen is fully stocked for all occasions, whether that’s for a party of two or ten.

The sliding doors in the great room open out to a large outside patio, private pool and garden. You can enjoy breakfast or evening drinks while the beautiful birds visit the garden. The pool provides a refreshing oasis after a hot day of excursions and a wonderful place to gather and play.

The master bedroom, with high vaulted ceiling and wrap around patio is a perfect place to find serenity. There is also a small work area, with a desk where you can catch up with work if needed. Additional flat screen TV, dvd, music system and a comfortable couch makes the master bedroom a suite on its own. With WiFi and free phone calls to the U.S., you can set up a home office and telecommute. The iron-gated porch outside the master bedroom is set up to give you some peace and shade throughout the day.

There are two other bedrooms with queen size beds (with memory foam pads) and full bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is set up with 4 bunk beds. All bedrooms have ample storage space and air conditioning.

About the Owner

We discovered Playa Grande while we were staying at nearby Playa Langosta. On a recommendation from a local surfer, we decided to have dinner at Bula Bula and check out the hidden gem of a beach that everyone was raving about. With happy hour drinks in our hands, we sat and watched a spectacular sunset and decided this was one of the most magical places in Costa Rica.

On our next trip, we decided to stay in Playa Grande for 3 weeks. For us, Playa Grande combine the best of Costa Rica—beautiful pristine beach, surf, wildlife, no crowds, natural beauty, comfort, and wonderful people. We knew we wanted to be part of this paradise and decided to buy a house. We chose Casa Hermosa because the house is beautifully constructed and we could hear the ocean waves while still being just far enough to not bother the turtles that grace the beach to nest. We also loved the fact that the house is in the National Park and we are committed to doing our part in making sure that Playa Grande stays pristine, beautiful and magical.

We live in San Jose, California, which isn’t a bad place to live either. However, we look forward to every opportunity we get to spend some wonderful time in Casa Hermosa with family and friends. We hope you will have many lasting memories.

Playa Grande Home - Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5
We spent 10 days at Casa Hermosa the last week of March 2014. We took our kids, ages 12,15,16 and 20. This house had four bedrooms, three of which had their own bath. The other room had 2 bunk beds and a bathroom next door to it. There were two living room areas, each with its own t.v. The kitchen was large, nicely appointed and with plenty of utensils for food preparation. This is a great house for a large family or several families with or without kids. Internet access and wifi worked well and t.v.s pulled in all the channels. Tel. provided for local and international calls. Although not on the beach, it was literally a one minute walk to the beach access and from there another two minutes to the beach itself. Playa Grande is a beautiful beach, a long crescent of golden sand. It is also a surfer's beach with waves for beginners to experienced surfers yet not at all dangerous if simply playing around in the shallow shore line area. The beach feels very uncrowded since the house is in a more upscale neighborhood on the south end of the beach. Sunsets were of course gorgeous. It was a great beach to walk or run on, collect shells, ride bikes or just hang out. The pool at the house was great for cooling of when it got too warm for us at the beach. Pool was well maintained and of adequate size. Two doors down was a small boutique hotel with surfboard rentals/instructions, etc. Although there were also two nice surf shops in the central part of Playa Grande as well. Reasonably good food could be had in one of half a dozen restaurants located within walking distance or a short drive. Several local concessions offered day tours and our kids went on a zip line/canopy tour as well as an ATV tour. We spent time learning to surf as well. You can catch a boat taxi to Tamarindo for $1.00 during daylight hours and the walk to the taxi took 10 minutes from our house. Tamarindo is much more touristy but does have plenty of nightlife and more stores for shopping. We preferred going to the 'action' rather than being in the middle of it. Our week was relaxing and there were no problems with the house. The new owners have nicely decorated the house and it more than met our expectations. New landscaping was on tap for later in the spring which will only add to what was already a great experience. We can highly recommend both Casa Hermosa as well as Playa Grande for a beautiful experience in Costa Rica.

Great House, host and location

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of ten grad students escaping the cold East coast!
We absolutely loved staying in this house! It was so comfortable, didn't lack anything! Beautiful. Breakfast by the pool in the morning, days at the beach trying to learn surfing. Dinner in closeby local restaurants. Exactly what we needed to rest and relax before heading back to school. We managed to have a fun, without disturbing any neighbors and also have some quiet nights.
The host is awesome! Super responsive, and makes sure everything is taken care of! Very attentive to detail. We felt well taken care of by the whole team. You really need to nothing more than your bathing suit and a change of clothes. Everything else is available in the house. Fully equipped. Honestly I can't say enough great things about it! We would definitely love to come there again!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Casa Hermosa for 10 days during our first trip to Costa Rica. This was by far one of the best properties in a secluded and secured area of Playa Grande. We really appreciated the owner's attention to details and all the brand new amenities (electronics, bedding and linen, etc.) We loved the artwork throughout the house that reflected the local culture and wildlife. The house was steps away from one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world and boy did we take advantage of that! We took surf lessons from the amazing instructors from El Manglar (which was just 2 doors down from the house), watched sunsets from the beach, collected sea shells, and stargazed at night. The house was also within walking distance to restaurants such as Bula Bula, Seven, and Cantarana. After a full day of activities, we were so glad we could just walk to one of the restaurants for a relaxing and delicious meal!!! One other highlight during our stay was waking up to the sounds of howler monkeys and tropical birds in the morning. A family of 7 howler monkeys frequented a tree directly in front of Casa Hermosa. It was an incredible experience to watch these animals in their natural habitat while I had my morning coffee!
"This was the best vacation ever!!!" declared my son after our trip. We found "pura vida" in Casa Hermosa and can't wait to come back!!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Liberia at 55 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Playa Grande at 100 Metres Car: not necessary

Casa Hermosa is located in the exclusive gated community of Palm Beach Estates in Playa Grande. Playa Grande, which is named one of the top 10 in the World by Travel and Leisure in 2013, is located immediately north of the beach community of Tamarindo and is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world. It is also famous as a major nesting site for the highly endangered leatherback sea turtle, the largest reptile on Earth. The house is ideally located on the southern end of the 3 kilometer beach, less than 200 meters from the water and within the sound of the crashing surf.

Playa Grande is truly spectacular. At high tide, large waves provide excellent surfing and boogie boarding. At low tide, a sand flat extends more than 100 meters off the beach allowing the family to enjoy the waves in safety. The beach has no rocks to stub toes and is literally covered with sea shells. Water temperature is usually 82 degrees rendering wet suits pointless. The entire beachfront is now a national park to protect the nesting turtles and this has greatly limited development. As a result, the southern end of the beach is often deserted and never has more than small number of people. The western orientation provides spectacular sunsets and reduced night lighting (to protect the turtles) allows for phenomenal star gazing.

Palm Beach Estates has a small general store a quick five minute walk from the house. Next door is a surfing inn and school that has great instructors for visitors looking to try out the sport or improve their skills. Three excellent restaurants are a short walk from the house.

Boat tours of the beautiful estuary with its monkeys, crocodiles and birds, can also be arranged within walking distance. The limited traffic means the dirt roads are great for those looking to do a morning jog. The north end of the beach is a short five minute drive along the access road. North Playa Grande has a number of restaurants as well as surf shops and a spa.

Casa Hermosa’s southern location lets you take a beautiful 1 kilometer walk along the water to the estuary separating Playa Grande from Tamarindo. From there you can either take a 1 minute water taxi ($1/person) to Tamarindo or take the short swim depending on the tide. Tamarindo is the largest beach community in Guanacaste and has many amenities including shops, surf schools, tennis club, U.S. style grocery stores and dozens of excellent restaurants. If you have a car, you can also get to Tamarindo by driving 25 minutes around the estuary.
