UPDATE: Oct 12, 2018, Life in the Playa Hermosa Beach bungalows is better than ever, thanks to our newly resurfaced swimming pool; wonderfully landscaped surroundings; more pizza deliveries; cooler neighbors contributing gourmet dishes to our famous potlucks; and as always, the fact that we are only 9 minutes from Jaco beach-yet world's apart.....

Playa Hermosa Beach Bungalow-Chalets are in a fully titled "pet friendly" beachfront community offering the best option for both rental income (super low property taxes with $250 monthly HOA fees) and enjoyable retirement living. Perfect for newcomers to Costa Rica with our super-welcoming community; and it's paradise for surfers, birders, or beachcombers, young or old alike! Our water and air temperature are usually around 80 degrees, and the sand is super soft. I love walking on the beach during low tide, and most days i will only see one or two other people walking, so it's almost like having your own private beach. As a surfer destination it is popular, but at low tide families greatly enjoy the water, and we are famous for having some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see in your life!
This 2rd row from the road, fully furnished 2bdrm 1 remodeled bath chalet boasts a southern edge of the property location, offering more privacy than others; a huge front deck with GREAT OCEAN VIEWS, feet pleasing wood floors; beautiful granite countertops; excellent cable t.v. and internet; and only 1.5 hours from the SJO int'l airport.
This bungalow is sold with all upscale furnishings, including recently recushioned sofas, a giant dining table made out of a beautiful Costa Rican legally harvested hardwood; fantastic art; a new washer dryer stackable combo installed downstairs in the recently built storage unit- thus offering more kitchen space than most of your neighbors.
By the way, upon your first visit, you will discover that many bungalow owners have decided to build a studio, or a one or even two bedroom apartment in their carport underneath their bungalow. Yes it's permitted here, and you'll see a wide variety of styles and proof that we are on stilts so that every bungalow gets an ocean view, NOT because we worry about high tides nor hurricanes!
There is a full-time friendly onsite rental manager, Brian, and 4 daily maintenance workers keeping the common areas beautiful and the swimming pool spotless (who are ready to help you at a moments notice), and we do have excellent nightime security.
With the beautiful Pacific Ocean in front of you, and a natural reserve behind you enveloped by luscious green mountains, this is truly a one of a kind TITLED home to live in Costa Rica. Keep in mind that 95% of Costa Rica beachfront is in the concession zone, but these bungalows are on 100% titled land, in a regulated condominium regime with one HOA rule: the Golden Rule!.
The town of Playa Hermosa only a few minutes away has the convenience of 2 mini markets (one will deliver) 2 excellent pizza delivery options; weekend and holiday live music offerings; and some excellent restaurants with beachfront ocean views so you don't have to go into Jaco beach, which is only 9 minutes away.
As an investment, we feel this is one of the area's best, since nearby homes sell for as much as $3 million and yes there is a rumour going around that a new Orotina Int'l Airport will be built only 35 minutes from here and finished by ?????.
Hermosa Beach will continue to appreciate in value as Jaco gets more crowded and residents seeking a quieter lifestyle choose a titled beachfront community. Very few options exist in Costa Rica, possibly the world, offering so much for such a small negotiable price!
I first moved into the Hermosa beach bungalows Dec. 1, 2005, and i still have not heard of any beach in Costa Rica, thats as beautiful, nor as convenient to all services as this location. Only 9 minutes to all touristy Costa Rica things in Jaco Beach to 18 minutes away for those that play golf or love deep sea fishing at the upscale Los Sueños Marina Golf and Marriott resort.
Remember we are conveniently only 1.5 hours away to the SJO Int'l Airport; or 1.3 hours to Santa Ana-Escazu to find U.S. influenced medical services at CIMA Hospital; and nearby is the Jazz Cafe, an IMAX theatre, MultiPlaza super mall, and special events like Wine Tastings, Micro Brew Events; organic food fairs; arts & crafts festivals; live concerts; conventions; and.........
Contact me if you are interested in buying a wonderful Hermosa beach bungalow. Remember our property taxes are so low, I can't mention them here.....
