About this property

4 Bedroom Oceanfront Surf Home with Pool

Casa Sonrisa Hermosa is a 4 BR/3.5 BA oceanfront home nestled on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, just steps from the famous surf break at Playa Negra. Indoor and outdoor living spaces blend together to create this comfortable and relaxing 5,500 sq. ft. beach home that can accommodate up to 12 people.  

The Home - First Level
On the first level are two bedrooms, each with generous views of the pool and ocean. The bunk room has a queen, a twin, and bunk beds, as well as a half bath; the second bedroom is equipped with 2 twins and a king. There is also a full bath, laundry room, bodega with secure storage, and a kitchenette in the breezeway on the first floor. The breezeway itself opens onto a large covered porch area with graceful arches, concrete benches, hammocks, and outdoor furniture.  From the porch overlooking the infinity edge pool with wrap around decking, you are steps from the small private beach out front, which is perfect for beach combing and lingering in the tide pools. 

Second Level
The second level of this home captures the best of all views. The front porch entry boasts colorful sunrise mountain views, while the back porch bathes you in spectacular ocean views. The great room/dining area is warm and welcoming, with vaulted tropical wood ceilings and custom crafted furniture including a dining table with seating for 8 or more.  Your views are endless from this room: mountains out front, and in back, wall to wall wood and glass doors offer views of the calming blue ocean.  Open and fold these doors back and the great room expands onto a wide outside porch to create an extended outdoor living area complete with hammock, another dining table for 8, outdoor bar and sitting areas with rocking chairs. The spacious kitchen offers modern appliances and a large center island and an 8 ft. wooden bar that opens to the porch, making a great spot for breakfast or sunset cocktails. The master and guest bedrooms flow off both sides of the great room and are generously sized.  The master offers a large private bath and king size bed while the guest bedroom has a queen bed and private bath.  Both have spectacular views of the ocean and mountains.  All the bedrooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning. 

Third Level
Located on the third floor, the "Mirador" is an open air room with a roof. This is a wonderful spot for yoga, watching the surf at Playa Negra, taking in a breathtaking sunset, or just lounging in the hammock with a book. Additionally there is a pull down stairs that lead to the rooftop deck above, perfect for star gazing or private sunbathing. Amenities include: on site property management with Beach Grass Rentals who can assist with all aspects of your vacation including private pick up at airport, rental car brought to your house, grocery shopping, arranging tours, massages, points of interest, catered meals, in home chefs, special occasions, etc.

This property is located near Playa Negra. One of the breaks featured in Endless Summer 2. This is one of the Costa Rica's best spots. A rocky reef right-hand break, Playa Negra is fast, hollow and can hold some size. It's tends to be bigger than the other spots around here. Fast waves, rocky bottom, juicy barrels, and ripping locals make this a great break, but not for the beginner.

This property is also located near Playa Blanca. Breaks directly in front of the Hotel Iguanazul. During a strong enough swell, this wave appears far offshore. When it breaks, it breaks well and it breaks big - usually at least twice overhead. There is a strong channel current leading out, so it is not that hard to get into the lineup - which will probably be sparse.

This property is also located near Playa Avellanas. A collection of left and right beach breaks and reef breaks. The surf breaks range from Little Hawaii at the north end of the beach to a fun left at the south end. Low tide can get really reefy, medium or high tide is your best bet. Playa Avellanas is long (and beautiful) beach, so spread out and find a peak away from the crowd.

This property is also located near Playa Junquillal. A ten minute walk down the beach from Hotel Iguanazul, this break can get really fun. During higher tides, there are many peaks that offer hollow, fast rights and lefts- the waves jack up off the sand bar very quickly creating a tough, but exciting drop in. It breaks very close to shore in shallow water over a sandy bottom.
