Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
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!!!!!!!!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a great beach house that has privacy, no crowds, that is truly oceanfront ,(just a seldom traveled dirt road outside the gate and you are right on the beach, really!) this is your pick. Honestly, I have been coming to the Hermosa area for years, and you will not find a more nicely landscaped oceanfront property here. Unlike the packed in Hermosa Palms or bungalow developments, here you will have peace and quiet with the beach mostly to yourself. A short drive or walk brings you up to the main costanera, where there are numerous amenities. I spent hours under the shade of a beautiful tree next to the pool, and there was always an ocean breeze. Behind the house is a beautiful undeveloped area where you can walk trails and see plenty of beautiful flora and fauna. I felt very safe with the house under patrol by a guard at night. This house is perfect for families, and my little dog sat for hours watching for the iguanas to come out of their hiding places! Very accessible (do not need 4WD) and centrally located to many attractions. Absolutely fabulous stay, thank you Beth and Jack!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5
A group of 7 of us stayed here for three nights. We all slept comfortably and had plenty of space. The property is beautiful and right across from the beach. The beach was pretty vacant, so it felt like we had a private beach. There were iguanas, macaws and other Costa Rican wild life around the area. Since we had a full kitchen, we hired a chef for two days, which made our stay even more enjoyable. The owners were very responsive to any questions or concerns throughout the booking process and stay. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

Christmas 2014 and New Years at Casa Barracuda

  • 5 of 5
Once again the Tarr Family would like to thank Beth and Jack for a wonderful family vacation at their home. We were lucky enough this year to spend 2 full weeks at Casa Barracuda. This trip again exceeded all of our expectations. This was our second stay at Casa Barracuda. We were comfortable, somewhat knowledgeable about the area, and were pleased to be able to make our way around Jaco and the surrounding area. This vacation spot is truly a gem and we are so very happy to have found it.

Our adult children joined us for these two weeks and it was such a treat to spend time with them in such a wonderful place. The property is well maintained, as are the grounds, and in ground pool. There is nothing better than to have the option to sit poolside or beach side. Everyday was picture perfect. Zuma Rental continues to make the travel from the airport to the property a pleasure.

Casa Barracuda continues to be the place where the Tarr Clan can meet, as we travel from different parts of the United States to be together over the holidays. There are still many adventures to be had and we are THRILLED to call Casa Barracuda OUR Home for the Holidays!

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.
