About the property

Modern 3 Bdrm, 2.5 Bath, Breathtaking Ocean View and Sunset

A great place to unwind and relax. For the warm afternoon, we have an infinity pool to refresh yourself. The house comes equipped with top quality amenities.

Hermosa Retreat also has a great location. It is located just a 10 min south of Dominical and 2 min north of Uvita. It is also 30 min from Quepos airport and 40 min from the famous Manuel Antonio beach and National Park. They are plenty of beautiful beach, surf, river, waterfall and restaurant within a short drive. The closest beach is Playa Hermosa - just a 4 min drive from the house.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We just spent several days here and loved it. House is well equipped and comfortable in a perfect location among the jungle life. Awesome birds and monkeys in the yard yet a short drive to great beaches. Greg checked in on us the day after we arrived to ensure we were comfortable. Balcony and pool provide such a relaxing way to enjoy a natural side of Costa Rica.... Pura Vida

beautiful updated home with great views!

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice and modern. Had great views!! I can not give a five star rating because the A/C on the first floor was not working, nor the ceiling fan. I let the property manager know immediately and after a full seven days, neither was fixed. Also, the house says for six, but upstairs there are A/C units in only two of the three bedrooms. The house rules state the doors must be shut when in use. Therefore, the third bedroom is incredibly hot and uncomfortable. I traveled in march and the humidity and temperature was quite high, with little to no breeze at night. Understanding this, I would recommend to verify all is in working order prior to renting and to keep guest to four.

Amazing house, amazing location!

Greg, the owner, is very nice. He came to greet us as soon as we arrived and gave us tips as of activities, grocery shopping and restaurants close to the house. The closest beach about 10 minutes away, but many others not too far (20 minutes).

The house is fully equipped, modern, clean, with everything you may need and more.

And most importantly, the most amazing view!

Huge pluses but with some minuses

  • 4 of 5

The pluses far outweigh the minuses, if you like cleanliness, a spectacular view, and wildlife and wild plants/flowers up close. The view alone justifies the stay, along with all the tropical birds that visit the deck or fly by (take binoculars). But if you are up at sunrise (at least in January) and walk either way on the dirt road you can see monkeys, toucans, macaws, hummingbirds, sloths, and fantastically sized and colored butterflies and flowers and plants (the walks can be up to two hours if you wish, no bugs in January). The house was spotless, which added to the magic. Potential down sides, all minor: the road is rough, so we would only go out for lunch/touring and then come back to stay in for dinner. The house can get hot in the afternoon with no shade (thus the great view!), and one fan was broken, so you might have to use the AC. Best to prep food before it gets dark, so you can keep lights out to avoid attracting tiny moths that somehow get through the screens – we ate by candlelight inside and did not see one mosquito, inside or out, and it was lovely. We kept lights out in the bedroom, so never saw a bug, and had the screened doors open all night to the lovely ocean. Only certain down side: burglarized the first night as we slept, laptop stolen, police said burglar had a key so Greg changed the locks – if you want to rent ask whether cameras have been installed because they should be, as petty crime seems to be the only problem. Some advice: for anything you schedule always have a phone number and confirm twice (restaurant, airport transport, tour, etc.), get cash from Uvite ATM whenever you don’t see a line because sometimes there are long lines, and the best thing we did was a Kokopelli mangrove tour out of Sierpe (wildlife galore, including crocs).

Superbe maison avec une vue splendide sur l’océan. Dream house with an ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

A shuttle brought us to the house from the airport. Our car was deliver there directly so we didn’t have to drive to the house. This dream house has an 180 degres view on the ocean. Any picture can’t be as great as in real life. Just sitting on the balcony and watching the parrots, toucans and monkeys is worth the price! The house is well equipped with everything you need. Is is very clean and well design. Everyone has he’s own private space. Greg is a great host. I recommend this house 100%.

Luxury in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

What are you looking for when renting a house for your next vacation? The feeling that you’re at home. That’s the special feeling you will get the second you open the door of this beautiful house, built by the owner. A deep sensation, that no matter what, this is the place that you fall in love with and where all your senses are catch. The view is so spectacular, I can look a million time the sunset and the beach! You can hear monkeys early in the morning, smell the nature who surround the house. When is too hot, just simply enjoy the perfect pool like we do me and my kids after we come back each « paradise day ». All you needs will be satisfied at this place; for relaxing, take a little confortable nap, enjoy the view and the beautiful nature…luxury in jungle. Without hesitation, I recommende this place. Planning to return…
