Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
6 Bedroom, 6 Bath on a black sand beach with 180 degree ocean views

We invite you to come and stay in this custom built home just steps away from the ocean and at one of the best surf spots in the world! Sit and watch the surfers or participate in catching world class waves. Watch the sunset right from the back patio and feel the warmth of the sun and the ocean breezes. Play a game of pool or ping pong. Take a morning or afternoon walk on our almost deserted beach and get in touch with nature. Let your senses unlock and escape your hectic life . Experience Costa Rica and you will not want to leave.

The house is all natural with stone, slate and granite throughout. Stained glass windows and Costa Rican art are seen throughout the house. The furniture was custom built for the home by local artisans.

There is nothing quite like opening your glass sliding doors and walking right onto the beach. This unique house is unlike any house you've ever seen.

Feel the ocean breezes come through the house. The house has a built in hot air escape vent that will allow the warmer air to rise and leave through the open roof patio.

There is one full bedroom with an en suite bath on the first floor facing the mountain side. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor 3 are facing the mountain side, one with en suite bath.

The master bedroom and a large second master bunkroom are oceanfront on the second floor. Wake up and look out of the window and see the ocean. Instant surf report!

The roof top is flat and has an approx 2500sf covered deck covering the entire house. There is a ping pong table on the roof as well as some furniture. This area is great for yoga, reading, dancing, meetings, receptions, and more.

The 30 meter long community pool is beach side and only 3 houses down from the house. Enjoy a fish taco and a drink at Yoyo's pool bar. You will want to spend your day there!

We are happy to set you up on activities such as zip line, ATV's, horseback riding, fishing, white water rafting, hiking, surf lessons and so much more.

We will get you oriented with a list of restaurants, grocery stores, transportation or whatever you may need.

About the Owner

We are native Californians and love the ocean. We reside in southern California in the quaint beachside town of San Clemente. The beach is where our heart is and we want to share a little bit of our paradise with you!

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time in Costa Rica and the best trip yet!
The new owners are great to work with, the property is WAY nicer than we expected.
I would recommend a rental car so you can enjoy the surrounding area and to go for groceries in Jaco, town is not far but not walking distance either.
The kitchen is well appointed and a natural gathering place, we cooked every day with the awesome fresh ingredients from town. The rooms in the house are very comfortable and big!
The house is cleaned by a local lady and she does a great job.
Pool table on first floor and ping pong on the roof deck.
There is a community pool that has a great swim up bar with the lovely Yoyo for a bartender and to cook a light lunch.
We rode horses on the beach which they can bring right to the house. Went for a guided tour through rain forest, played in the surf, and lots of lounging in the pool.
This place is in a gated community and the residents/locals are very welcoming and helpful for the tours in the area. You can see them surfing almost all day.
If you're a dog lover there are a few resident dogs in the area that you may find laying on your porch watching the surf with you. They are all good dogs, I think they know that they have a great life so no worries.
The property is about an hour ride from San Jose airport but it is a beautiful ride through the hills.
We have already reserved it again for a week next summer. That should say it all!

From the Owner

We were married in Costa Rica and since then we have been looking for property. Perseverance and patience paid off when we found this gem. The previous owners put their heart and soul into this home and we will do the same.

Daily housekeeping is included. The housekeeper will empty trash and make beds daily. This is a family rental home. If you make the choice to bring prostitutes to the house it could be grounds for immediate removal from the property of you and your guests with NO REFUND. and PLEASE, treat our property like it is yours. We had someone carve a penis in the custom made bunkbed (which was repaired) I doubt that kid would have gotten away with it at home. Insurance does not give permission for destruction. Thank you kindly.

From the Owner

Being beach front has its obvious advantages. This is a guard-gated community with foot patrol on the beach so you will have an extra added sense of security. The house is big enough to have privacy but also has a great community feel. The roof top has endless possibilities from a wedding reception to a Yoga retreat. Inside the furniture was made for the house. It is unique and interesting and art in and of itself. Beautiful stained glass and mural art throughout enhance the uniqueness and character of this home. This is a great family get-away...
