Beachfront Casa Barracuda: 3BR Luxury, Pool on 1/3 Acre, Playa Hermosa de Jaco!

Welcome to the luxurious Casa Barracuda, a stunning 3-bedroom vacation rental nestled on 1/3 acre, just 30 steps from the soft sands and popular surf of Playa Hermosa de Garabito-Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Playa Hermosa is celebrated for its laid-back atmosphere, yet you’re only a 10-minute drive from the vibrant energy and amenities of Jaco. This area is a favorite among families and single surfers, and has recently become a sought-after spot for weddings, honeymoons, and babymoons.

You’ll adore the modern kitchen, equipped with stainless steel appliances, ample granite countertops, a Whirlpool double-door refrigerator with an icemaker, and even a dishwasher! Custom Costa Rican hardwood cabinets are complemented by a granite breakfast bar with hardwood stools, making it a perfect spot to enjoy a meal while chatting with the chef. A laundry area with a full-size washer and dryer is conveniently located next to the kitchen and can be closed off with a folding curtain for added privacy.

The great room lives up to its name with double sliding glass doors offering stunning ocean views from every angle. Enjoy high-speed wireless internet and a Samsung 50” HD TV with streaming options and a Blu-ray/DVD player. The glass-top dining table seats up to 8 guests with comfortably cushioned chairs.

Relax in two overstuffed chairs or a cozy three-seat sofa, all with views of the enchanting free-form private pool. An exercise bike next to the window overlooks the outdoor table and pool area, perfect for a morning workout with a view!

Step outside and be surrounded by beautiful landscaping, including tall palm and almond trees that attract colorful macaws. Friendly iguanas will entertain you as they scuffle over table scraps and fruit skins. The manicured front and back yards (1/3 acre!) offer ample space for fun and privacy, with fruit trees that will soon bear delicious treats.

Casa Barracuda’s large covered terrace with an upstairs pool deck provides fantastic views where you can soak up the sun and sounds of the sea, whether lounging in a hammock or on one of the many comfortable seating options. An outdoor table for four makes alfresco dining a delight. Grill your catch of the day on the stainless steel gas grill with an ocean view!

This 2800 sq ft home features three bedrooms, including a master suite with a king-size bed, 100% cotton sheets, fine pillows, a closet with a wall safe, and an ensuite bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The other two bedrooms each offer a queen bed and a twin bed, and share a well-appointed bathroom with a shower.

Although Playa Hermosa (‘Beautiful Beach’) is a renowned surfing destination and was named Central America’s first World Surf Reserve in May 2022, you don’t need to be a surfer to enjoy its charm. I lived nearby for 18 years and loved strolling along this beach, especially at low tide—ideal for families with kids. While the beach is often serene, it comes alive with surfers during great wave conditions.

Our sunsets are legendary, whether viewed from Casa Barracuda’s second-floor deck or the beachfront restaurant Vida Hermosa, a 25-minute walk north. The surf break is one of the most consistent in Central America, attracting surfers for local competitions. Remarkably, the best surfing coincides with the Olive Ridley sea turtles’ nesting season from June to November.
