Vacation Rental


Welcome to the luxurious Casa Barracuda, a gorgeous 3 bedroom vacation rental home on 1/3 acre, less than 30 steps to the soft sands & popular surf of Playa Hermosa de Garabito-Puntarenas, Costa Rica.  This Playa Hermosa is famous for its relaxing vibe yet you are only 10 minutes away from the multi-services and excitement of Jaco.  This area is not only extremely popular with families & single surfers, but lately has become the romantic destination for weddings, honeymoons and later, babymoons!

You’ll love the modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, conveniences you’ll love, lots of granite counter tops, a Whirlpool double door refri with icemaker, even a dishwasher!   The custom made CR hardwood kitchen cabinets are complemented with a granite breakfast bar with hardwood stools, facing the chef. The laundry with full size washer and dryer is right next to the kitchen and can be closed off with a folding curtain when desired.

The great room is truly great thanks to its double sliding glass doors providing wonderful ocean views from every angle.  There’s excellent wireless high speed internet & the Samsung 50” HD TV, has streaming options + Blu-ray/DVD player.   The glass-top dining table seats up to 8 guests with nicely cushioned chairs.
There are 2 overstuffed chairs, a comfy three-seat sofa, all with views of the free form enchanting private pool.
Once outside you’ll be surrounded by beautiful landscaping with tall palm & almond trees that will attract noisy colorful macaws, as the friendly iguanas will entertain you as they fight over your table scraps & fruit skins. -The manicured front & back yards (1/3 acre!) allow for all kinds of fun or privacy and soon the fruit trees will deliver their goods!

Casa Barracuda’s large-covered terrace with an upstairs pool deck allows you fantastic views where you can enjoy the sun and sounds of the sea either on a hammock or the many comfortable seating options.  An outdoor table for four allows for alfresco dining.   Grill that filet of the day on the stainless steel gas grill facing the ocean!

This 2800 sq ft spacious home has three bedrooms with a master bedroom featuring an excellent king size bed with 100% cotton sheets, fine pillows, closet with wall safe, and ensuite bathroom with combination shower and tub.
The two other bedrooms have very nice Queen beds and one Twin bed in each, and  they both are next to a nice bathroom with shower, (and coming soon will be 3rd bathroom!).

Although Playa Hermosa (‘Beautiful Beach’) is a world-famous surfing beach and in May 2022 was named Central America’s first World Surf Reserve, you don’t have to be a surfer to love this beach.
I lived nearby for 18 years, and loved walking this beach at a nice pace taking in the sites and sounds, especially at low tide, (best time for families w/ kids!)

Sometimes a friend would pass me by doing his speed walks & I’d smile knowing he’s going too fast to see the daily treasures. Usually you won’t see many people on the beach like you would in Jaco, but when there’s great waves, the surfers come!

Our sunsets are world famous, from either our Casa Barracuda 2nd floor Deck, or walk north to our favorite beachfront restaurant, Vida Hermosa, about 25 minutes away. The surf break is one of the most consistent in Central America, and well known among surfers, who participate in lots of local competitions.  The best surfing breaks occur almost the same time that Olive Ridley sea turtles come to lay their eggs!  From June to Nov.

Chef Jeff’s Foodie Recommendations!
Too tired to cook?  Lots of food is close by, like only a minute walk is the Hotel Tramonto’s decent Italian, with pizzas, & local food, an ocean view & fair prices!  Casa Barracuda is less than 1 mile away, heading north, to the tiny beachfront place we call downtown Playa Hermosa, which now features 5 delicious restaurants, an ice cream/gelato smoothie place at Sunny’s, a new vegan Elixer bar, delicious Uruguyan Pizza Pata (next door to 24 hour grocery that offers free deliveries to Hermosa) , and our favorite ESPECIALLY for the thrill of HIGH TIDE, is Vida Hermosa. great breakfast, lunch or dinner, or live music/dj on the weekends.    Another option is to hire one of many excellent chefs that will deliver and prepare, and serve the food in your home. From Sushi At Home to Jimmy T’s Catering, Chef Jeff recommends them both highly!!!
Of course Jaco is only 10 minutes away that offers almost everything from Jerah’s great thai, to Green House live music & excellent food, to many sushi places that will serve the fish you caught!  Lemon Zest for fine dining, Rustico for inexpensive Tico food at great prices, sports bars like the Public House, the new Gringos Sports Bar, people watch at Mono Verde or El Barco Gelato, Bakeries like Panaderia Artesana or Pachi’sPan,

Clinics –Pharmacies
Also note that Pharmacies (Farmacias) are totally different in Costa Rica and you can buy many over the counter pills you can’t in the U.S. and they even offer certain injections/shots. Most speak English!!!

By now you know that nearby are a ton of things to do in this area, from zip lining tours, to Los Sueños Golf with an ocean view, and sport fishing with possible whale-dolphin views. See below our recommendations for things to do!   They offer a wide variety of high quality food, right in front of their marina, all only 25 minutes away, at the Los Suenos Resort and Marina. (Just past our favorite AutoMercado mall.
