UPDATE: SEPT. 20, 2020: This beach in front of the Hermosa Beach Bungalows, Playa Hermosa de Jaco, Garabito, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, has just been named as the next World Surfing Reserve (savethewaves.org) in addition to being a turtle reserve!
As one of our neighbors recently said, "I think the smartest home buying decision a shopper can make is to buy a house in the same community where the realtor lives. He won't lie to someone he may see EVERYDAY!!!
SO, here is my newest, (in the beachfront community where i have lived since Dec. 2005 the Hermosa Beach Bungalows)
in a fantastic location with both an oceanview, and privacy; surrounded by nature, and only 100 steps to the sand and surf!

Playa Hermosa Beach Bungalow-Chalets are in a fully titled land beachfront community offering the best option for both rental income and enjoyable retirement living. Perfect for young & old; newcomers & old-timers; surfers to beachcombers; singles to families with young kids; all to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle here, only 8 minutes from Jaco Beach, Garabito, Puntarenas, Central Pacific, Costa Rica , but amazingly it feels worlds' apart!
This recently painted and renovated 2 bdrm 1 bath chalet boasts a southern sunrise and an ocean view directly down our road to the glorious Pacific; and with our huge front and rear decks, you'll see incredible natural tropical vegetation, many species of birds including hummingbirds, macaws and parrots; and many other tropical delights.
Amenities and Special Upgrades:
Only the back row units have a nice rear deck about 27 feet long and 6.5 ft wide, and only the corner units have extra land
to utilize, a real bonus!
This home comes fully furnished with beautiful wood floors; gorgeous granite countertops; modern appliances; with excellent hd cable t.v. and high speed internet available. The back roof in general is an upgrade, they were not the originals, but an improvement which others have really liked.
The main roof of the Bungalow was resealed and repainted with anti-corrosive paint two years ago for $1,235, and the very top of the back roof was replaced 2 years ago for about $600.
All the solid wood bedroom and dining room furniture was custom built in San Jose and bolted strongly together. Much more expensive than the original bungalow furniture.
All the bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans, but most importantly all have recently replaced INVERTER AIR CONDITIONERS,
which are the type that will save you $$$.
The main AC was replaced two months ago and works incredible for the main room with it's powerful 18000 BTU, that really impresses the Floridian owners.
Guest bedroom AC is 9000 BTU replace 3 years ago
The master bedroom AC was replaced one year ago for a 9000 BTU.
The whole Bungalow was cleaned and repainted with our Costa Rican pricing, 1 1/2 years ago for only $1,175.
This is another advantage of living here as well, low costs to remodel or even add........
A new 1 horsepower water pump was installed one year ago for $750.
And our super comfy new double couch set is only 1 year old, was $1,200.
Remember that only the back row of the Bungalows offer a very special treat to birdwatchers and nature lovers, very spacious balconies which will offer you dusk and dawn bird songs, as well as providing extra living space and privacy with large sliding glass doors .
To me, the most impressive thing about this bungalow is the Owners' pride and joy in all of the wall art and objects,
featuring painted animals, tropical plants, and incredibly special decals that remind you, Hey, You are in Costa Rica!!! Pura Vida!
For the incredible HOA monthly fee of $300 (just raised March 1st, 2020) you'll see 3 daily maintenance workers keeping all the common areas beautiful and the swimming pool spotless, and night time security guard; even your water bill is included in the HOA payment.
For those that want to participate in our excellent rental income program (lots of repeat business) Brian is our onsite rental manager (as well as being a bungalow owner for the past 16 years. )
With the beautiful Pacific Ocean and protected Turtle reserve to your west, and to the east you're enveloped by luscious green mountains, this is truly a one of a kind home to live in Costa Rica. Keep in mind that 95% of Costa Rica's 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! And the Muni-property taxes are an incredible deal, too cheap to mention here!
Hermosa Beach also offers the convenience of 2 mini markets, 4 beachfront bar restaurants only two minutes away, and it's even possible to get deliveries from 3 nearby pizza places and one of the 2 mini-markets. One of the bar restaurants, the Backyard Bar offers Saturday surf contests (world famous waves) with live music and holidays celebrated there also.
The bustling tourist town of Jaco beach is only 9 minutes to the north, offering everything you need from government services to air conditioned movie theatres to a Central Park that often offer weekend family events. Of course, to greatly enhance your tropical paradise lifestyle, this area offers tons of tourist eco activities, shops, stores, 100 restaurants offering from super cheap delicious "typico" to incredible world famous "gourmet" (to satisfy any "foodie" ) all within a beachfront zone with only one traffic signal! There are international bilingual schools with U.S. accreditation, multi-denominational English speaking churches and lots of opportunities to participate in volunteer efforts to improve the local communities thanks to the Garabito Rotary Club.
As an investment, we feel this is one of the area's best, since nearby homes are selling for as much as $2.7 million in the Hermosa Palms beach front community. 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!
We invite you to discover why after people have stayed two or three times, they purchase on their next trip.
Take advantage that right now, we only have two bungalows for sale, one for $325k front row, and this one backrow with back porch, ocean view, privacy, for only $235k.
Now is the time, and this is the place!
