This is a very special home with lots of added extras and future capabilities, (like added bedrooms, bathroom, deck & crow's nest in one of the greatest places to live in all of Costa Rica, maybe all of Central America, the Hermosa Beach Bungalows where i have lived the past 12+years with low HOA fees too!)
For now the hardwood steps lead to the 2 bdrms upstairs, and one remodeled bathroom while downstairs is a nicely made large owners' studio apartment.
The real bonus is that prep work has been completed for another bedroom or two plus master bath-and a large view deck upstairs for a 3rd floor!!!
Of course this modern home has optional fast internet and high-def Cable TV; the comfy furniture and added cabinetry is included; and EVERY room, has quality ceiling fans and air conditioners.
These are the improvements made to Bungalow 2:
-Chiclet wood deck and steps (CR’s hardest wood & by law, only fallen trees can be used) as well as ocean front trusses and vertical trusses for roof.
-cement reinforced stair base
-Cedar front Doors, windows and furniture

bathroom, patio plus ......
-Ground floor apartment from cement, insulated with Durman top grade windows. Contains all quality necessities and queen sized serta-pedic mattress.
This home is not only for those owners' desiring a great beachfront home with excellent rental income, but this community, the Hermosa Beach Bungalows
is famous for the quality of life here: the wonderful neighbors & potlucks, the super soft sands of the Pacific, the convenience of restaurants with live music and funny drinks with umbrellas, 2 mini markets, pizza places that deliver, all within 5 minutes of home; and only 9 minutes to the booming beachtown of Jaco!
This home has been owned for the past 11 years by an apprentice general contractor, learning from one of Costa Rica's best builders from Escazu. He learned about the best materials and places to purchase. His improvements have also led to the betterment of 4 other neighboring homes. The price of this home has been reduced to $319,000 and based on the extensive remodeling efforts over the years and future increased living space, this is a super deal for a beachfront unit with eventually 2 more bedrooms..
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.
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 and only $300 monthly HOA fees, just raised March 2020) 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! 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!.
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 lots of rumours about coming attractions to our area, that will enhance every one's equity value.
I, CR Beach owner Jeff, first moved into the Hermosa beach bungalows Dec. 1, 2005, and i still I know of no other 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 (which also has one of Costa Rica's finest bakeries & other quality restaurants.)
Remember we are conveniently only 1.5 hours away to the SJO Int'l Airport; or 1.3 hours to Santa Ana-Escazu where you can find: U.S. influenced medical services at CIMA Hospital; the Jazz Cafe featuring incredible music of all types; in Avenida Escazu upscale restaurants/shops + an IMAX theatre; an EPA hardware store
(sort of a Home Depot); Multi-Plaza super mall (Central America's largest); close by is our version of Costco (Pricesmart) and nearby are always special events like Wine Tastings, Micro Brew Events; organic food fairs; arts & crafts festivals; conventions of all types; and yes, this is why it's so great to live only an hour plus away from all of these modern super cool thangs, knowing your home on the beach is so close by.....
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.....
