About this listing

Hello! Looking for the best of Costa Rica? We have rich chocolate sand beaches, and some of the best surfing around! Feel at ease in our gated community, with private resort pool. Let us make your vacation feel like an endless summer. Pura Vida!

The space

Welcome to Poncho's Hideaway! This gorgeous beach house is located in the very safe gated community of Hermosa Palms. The main floor suite is 2000 sq feet, 2 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom. Comfortably sleeps 4 people. The space is beautifully decorated with traditional Costa Rican style, while the outdoor space, landscaped with local tropical flowers, is just as stunning. The home has a two car garage, and a patio, the perfect place to view Costa Rica's amazing sunsets.

The lower floor of the home has a master bedroom with queen-sized bed, as well as a second bedroom with two single beds. There is one full sized washroom on the lower level with double sinks, and a large walk in shower. This space also has a kitchenette with counter top stove, as well as a small dining area. Off of the kitchen is a spacious patio area. All pots/pans, dishes, and kitchen utensils are available in both the upper and lower kitchen spaces.

The house is only steps away from the beach. Our beach has very unique, dark chocolate coloured sand, as soft as snow. The beach is very private and secluded and is never crowded with tourists. If you love to surf, or are interested in learning, our beach has been named the 3rd best beach in Costa Rica for surfing! You will also find tons of wildlife around the home and beach alike including macaws, toucans, and monkeys.

Our guests have access to a beautiful private resort style pool, only accessible to those in the Hermosa Palms gated community. There is a full service lunch area for afternoon snacks. The pool is very family friendly, and has a specific swim area sectioned off just for kids! For the adults, there is a swim-up bar!

As mentioned above, there is also access to our very private and secluded beach. Voted 3rd best beach in Costa Rica for surfing!

Poncho's Hideaway is a warm, beautifully appointed location. We arrived late at night and our hosts, Angie and Larry greeted us like old friends. Our fridge was stocked with enough food for several breakfasts and the amenties provided made it feel like home. A 2-minute walk from a resort-quality pool facility with an additional 20 steps to reach the chocolate sandy beach made this home the perfect venue for the rest and relaxation we sought. Have I mentioned the food at the pool yet? Yanite's spicy hummus and beef with cold coconut water, from a fresh coconut, was outstanding as was the friendly service provided throughout the week. Larry made some wonderful suggestions for excursions and the Rainmaker hike in the rainforest did not dissapoint. Oh, and the beach was among the most lovely we have experienced in our travels. To wrap it all up little Poncho, the local monkey, came calling, ate his morning breakfast from our hands and bid us a good flight home. Couldn't have asked for a better week in paradise. Highly recommeded!
