There is no better destination for a peaceful, rejuvenating escape than staying at one of our homes at The Reserve Costa Rica, recently featured in Jilux, the luxury vacation newsletter. Here you can relax beside the pool, with an amazing ocean view that has the most spectacular sunsets or you can take an adventure off into the jungle or a walk or horseback ride along the beach. If you’re lucky you might even see some of the monkey’s, toucans and other wildlife that inhabit the jungle on The Reserve. Our Villa is located just 3/4 of a mile from Playa Hermosa. a sleepy little surfing town. Here you can discover the easy going lifestyle that is Pure Vida. Just 4.5 miles from the town of Jaco (pronounced hah-Ko) and 90 minutes from the city of San Jose, guests return year after year to relax and recharge in our 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom vacation rental home.

With 5000 square feet of space, and top of the line amenities, including a pool with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean you’ll have plenty of room to relax and unwind.

Each bedroom has it’s own TV with cable, air conditioning, and room darkening drapes and shades for maximum comfort.
