Thatched-roof garden villa near Playa Hermosa

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3 baths
Located just two minutes from the beach, Casa Macondo is tucked away in lush tropical jungle, with privacy provided by mature palm, almond, and mango trees, and other gorgeous local flora. This spacious three-bedroom is ideal for a laid-back beach vacation with friends and family. Follow a wooded pathway through the jungle to the pristine white sand and crystal clear waters of Playa Hermosa Beach. On the short walk to the beach, you may run into the neighbors, Howler and Capuchin monkeys. Make sure to bring a camera.
With its thatched palapa, natural stonework, and warm wood tones, Casa Macondo is a completely authentic tropical, open-air home. Blurring lines between inside and out is Macondo’s specialty, and it does its job flawlessly. Inside, you’ll find high-end electronics and appliances subtly woven into the rustic-chic decor. The three air-conditioned bedrooms feature beautiful wood bed frames with gorgeous headboards, colorful textures on the linens, and alfresco rain showers.
Casa Macondo’s terrace is a tropical oasis. Upon sight of the refreshing swimming pool, alfresco showers, and yoga shala, you’ll feel instantly relaxed. When it’s time to prepare your meals, and you can’t tear yourself away from the gorgeous outdoors, you won’t have to, as Macondo is equipped with a charcoal barbecue, wood burning pizza oven, and an alfresco dining set. Wi-Fi, housekeeping, and a parking space are also included.
A favorite among locals, Playa Hermosa somehow manages to remain a little more secluded than other nearby beaches, Carmen and Santa Teresa. Finding a shady spot for a lounge chair, or a nice stretch of ocean for snorkeling will always be a little easier at Hermosa, and the bars and restaurants at its edge are a little less crowded too. If you’d prefer the hustle and bustle of the city, Playa Santa Teresa is the beach for you. And, it’s right on the edge of town, so you’ll have no trouble finding shopping, grocery stores, dining, and nightlife in Santa Teresa.
