On Playa Hermosa! 3BR Beachfront Home w/Private Pool

On Playa Hermosa! 3BR Beachfront Home w/Private Pool

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 3, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Welcome to Paradise! This luxury newer home with private pool on

Playa Hermosa ("Beautiful Beach")is a mere shell's toss away from

some of the best surf in Costa Rica (inquire about availability & rates for the 2009 ISA Billabong World Surf. Games July 30-August 9).

Our home has three spacious bedrooms (two rooms have one twin bed and

one queen bed each, and the master suite has a king-size bed) and two

full baths. The kitchen is newly remodeled (November 2008), with all

appliances, dishes and cooking equipment, and washer and dryer.

Several charming restaurants and bars are a leisurely barefoot

stroll in the soft, charcoal sand to the north. To the south, wander

down to the turtle rescue sanctuary. Along the way, you'll think

you're

on your own private beach, with a few surfers scattered about in the

waves.

Playa Hermosa is a world famous surfing beach situated just eight

minutes south of the charming, bustling beach town of Jaco, with

hundreds of restaurants, shops, bars, casinos...you name it! In

Jaco you can find just about anything you need and arrange to enjoy

some of the endless Costa-Rican activities and adventures available.

We have local guest and property management to welcome you and

help get you settled in for your stay. Maid services can be

arranged.

Call or e-mail Beth or Jack for more information. We look forward

to helping you plan your Costa Rican vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have stayed here 5 times now.....Casa Baracuda is Beautiful, Clean and Peaceful!!!!!!!.. The Pool is clear and refreshing. The location is PERFECT. Hermosa is very quiet, and beautiful. Jaco is less than 10 minutes away.....Great for night life. The price for the house is less than a "Decent" Hotel, and you have the luxuries of home. We will continue to visit Hermosa and stay at Casa Baracuda!!!!!!!!

fun in the sun~

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to say this house exceeded my expectations. The rooms were very roomy and clean. My husband and I traveled with a 2, 10, 12 and a 74 year old and everyone was happy! The pool was perfect! We sat in the pool each morning as gorgeous red macaws flew over the pool. In the background the sound of waves crashing on the black sand beach added to our wonderful experience. Sunsets were also so magical!

Working with the owners was easy and helpful. We used Zuma Rental (as suggested) and was treated to a ride too and from the airport. I would strongly suggest getting a car for a large group of people. The roads were never a problem (with the help of GPS).

I would defiantly recommend this property to anyone wanting a wonderful home close to the beach with all the amenities of home. Costa Rica has something for everyone-gorgeous beaches, rainforest, volcanoes, zip lines, snorkeling, surfing and tons of animal adventures! **Pura Vida**

Awesome Vacation! Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5
This review is well overdue but I am more than happy to write it. Our family has planned for this trip for quite some time now, and Beth as well as Jack have been nothing but helpful in ensuring that we knew everything from what to do whilst in Jacó to transportation from the airport. The whole process was absolutely wonderful and could not have been any smoother! The pictures that we saw here on VRBO were very accurate on what we witnessed when we arrived (which in all honesty was a huge concern). The location of the home was also spot on as we walked into the backyard only to see the beach! What I enjoyed most about our experience here in Jacó was that we were in an area that was not crowded with tourist, so there was more room for us to experience CR with the natives. Downtown was most lively and we did enjoy the Taco Bar! I most definitely recommend this property to any of my friends or relatives who want to getaway and still stay in a beautiful home as well as area of CR! Thank you Beth & Jack for welcoming us into your fantastic home, when we return to CR we most definitely will look you up again!

We had a wonderful trip at this property. The house and pool are well maintained. The beach is amazing and almost always empty. It has everything you need for a perfect vacation. I would definitely recommend this property.

rI must write and let you know the our family of 6 just returned from a WONDERFUL weeks stay at Casa Barracuda. The grounds and our "home" for the last week was spectatular. Our family enjoyed the pool and the acess to the beach daily. The younger adults were active in many of the activities offered including surf lessons and ATVing. The older adults were thrilled to sit poolside.

Our home had everything you could possibly need from WIFY to beach towels. The hammock was popular and as were the pool "toys". The kitchen was well stocked and was used daily for the preparation of breakfasts and lunches. We did take advantage of the DELICIOUS choices of restaurants in Jaco. They were excellent and a different dining experience was achieved each night.

There was PLENTY of space for everyone to find some quiet time and yet we used the dining room table for board games. Everyone was very happy with their accommodations - the bedrooms very airly and bright. Two large bathrooms,an outside shower, paddle fans to push the AC made the warm tropical days and nights a pleasure.

Now to the meat of this email. This was truly a WONDERFUL experience for the entire family. The beach, pool and the picture perfect weather made this a vacation to remember. Having someone pick you up and return you to the airport in a country you have NEVER been too was great. The local staff made EVERY effort to make sure that we had all that we needed and was around the property daily. The pictures you view are very accurate and the owners were quick to respond to any and all questions.

Now that the return to home has happened my husband is looking for airfare for next year. All six are in agreement that this was by far the most enjoyable vacation we have had. It was DELIGHTFUL to do what you wanted to do, when you wanted to do it. I can honestly say that WE drove the schedule.

In closing, thank you for a wonderful week in paradise. This was our first experience using this site and i would not hesitate to try this again. I would also recommend this property to family and friends--- it was just that special!!

Great Location, Excellent Staff, Charming Owners

  • 5 of 5
I spent this pass Memorial Day Weekend (2013) at Casa Baracuda. Our party consisted of 3 couples and an infant. The house is spacious, in fact we could have easily brought two more adults with us and would have been totally comfortable. The property managers were great, greeting us upon arrival and providing contact information in the event we needed to reach out. The pool features a section with jacuzzi style jets and is cleaned every morning. The house had all the amenities we needed including internet, cable tv, and a well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, dishes, etc.). I highly recommend this property and the value for the price is a rare find for a beachfront location.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family (two children, ages 23 and 22 and Mom and Dad...ages not necessary:-)) enjoyed the property and all its amenities immensely. Beth and Jack were very helpful from day one when we found the house on VRBO. Marielos, the onsite manager was very helpful upon arrival and Erika helped with excursions. The pool was refreshing after a long day of site seeing and/or body surfing. The surf on the beach is pretty rough for swimming and inexperienced surfers, but we managed to enjoy the water. Our activities included ziplining at Los Suenos, 1/2 day inshore fishing, Manuel Antonio and a late afternoon hike to a waterfall. The people and country are beautiful and we would definitely go back! Thank you Jack and Beth!!
