Updated: May 21, 2015
Four Bedrooms, Four And 1/2 Baths Including A Studio Apartment

The main house has three bedrooms and three and one half bathrooms. Upstairs there is a party room with a four-person bar and dining for eight. The attached studio apartment has a bedroom, a full bath, and a small kitchen area. Three of the four bedrooms have direct access to the pool and ocean views. There is one king bed and two queens. The garden room has two single beds that can be used as a king. This is particularly good for children, as it is the only room without a door to the pool and patio.

The pool has two lanes, each 50' long. The depth is about three feet on one lane and four on the other.

The main floor of the house, including all bedrooms, is wheelchair accessible. The driveway is paved with stone, with ample covered parking for two vehicles.

About the Owner

Don and Claudia met in Portland, OR in 1975. They bought a home in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood where they raised four children. Don taught mathematics for thirty years, most of it at a community college. Claudia worked in adoption, recruiting families for special-needs children.

The children are now spread out in four cities, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Richmond, VA. Don and Claudia have six wonderful grandchildren. They still live in the Mt. Tabor area.

A Beautiful, Accessible House With A 50' Lap Pool
Playa Hermosa Guanacaste

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We spent eight nights at the house and had a wonderful time. The pool and patio are fantastic. The views are incredible and watching the sunset each night was a highlight. The house had everything we needed and could not have asked for more. The owner and property managers were a pleasure to work with and made our booking experience painless. It was an easy walk into town for dinner. You can't go wrong staying here.

Perfect House for Us!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was just as advertised. Wes and Lisa, the property managers met us at the house and gave a great orientation about the house and Playa Hermosa. The four bedrooms were great and the pool was awesome. We had a wonderful time. Only thing to note is that we didn't use the upstairs dining room at all. Not a negative, just seemed out of the way for our needs. Highly recommend this house.

Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
I would like to thank Don for sharing his fantastic home with me and three of my girlfriends. We all were looking for a home that had lots of space, are own bathrooms, a private pool and close to the beach and Playa Del Cocco. This home provided us with all of that and if not more!!!

The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet but only minutes from activities to do in Playa Hermosa and Playa Del Cocco were you can find many nice restaurants and delightful souvenirs to bring home.

The beach was just minutes away, a supermarket around the corner with a pharmacy and doctor available if you fell ill, which I did. The doctor was very helpful and even prescribed me an antibiotic that worked well so I could still enjoy my vacation and I was able to recover quickly from bronchitis.

The 50 foot lap pool and patio was a plus and a good gathering spot for us at all times of the day to enjoy the surroundings, the birds, the rest and relaxation.

If you want to experience Costa Rica at its finest this is the place to stay. We highly recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to Costa Rica for the best vacation one can have.

A Hidden Jewel

  • 5 of 5
I have spent time in many different countries, but this spot is one of my absolute favorites. The clean, comfortable home is relaxing and enchanting. Having breakfast and coffee by the pool patio while the birds sang in the morning, along with reading in the hammock on the small patio outside of my bedroom were some of my favorite times. A short walk to the beach to swim in the ocean, watch a gorgeous sunset, see the monkeys swinging in the trees with their babies on their backs became my cherished evening routines. I loved the ease of having grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance, right in Playa Hermosa.

The owners provided a fabulously furnished home with absolutely everything my friend and I needed, right down to movies and games. I can't wait to come back with a group of my family members.

A perfect vacation - Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5
Our family has used this house twice for vacations over Christmas and Spring Break and each visit has been a wonderful experience. We have traveled with a group of 8 including young children, teenagers and older adults and each member of the family had a wonderful time. The beach is a ten-minute walk from the home. Restaurants and stores are close by as well. The beach is ideal for children with clean sand, palm trees and gentle waves. The pool at the house provides cool late afternoon swims. We all enjoyed bird-watching from the house, sunrises, nearby monkeys and easy access to other beach towns and outdoor adventures.

From the Owner

We first came to Costa Rica for our 20th anniversary. We loved it. Subsequent trips convinced us that we wanted to spend much of our vacation and retirement time there. We bought this property only after spending two months as VRBO guests in Playa Hermosa. We loved the multicultural aspects of the town. If you speak English, Spanish, or French, it is easy to communicate with most people in town. We built the house in 2005, and have made improvements to the house and property every year since then.

From the Owner

Although the villa is beautiful and comfortable on the inside, Costa Rica is a place in which one lives outside. With warmth and sun for 12 hours every day, few restaurants or hotel lobbies even have inside seating. With music through the outdoor speakers, the lap pool, the grill, and outside seating, there are few reasons to be inside until after dinner. Even then it is comfortable out side nearly all year.
