About Susan Kilsdonk
My husband and I are farmers in California. He has relatives living in Costa Rica. We would often go and visit and fell in love with this house on one of our visits. I am not normally a ocean type person, but fell in love with this area.
Susan Kilsdonk purchased this House in 2005
Why Susan Kilsdonk chose Jaco
We have been in many different parts of Costa Rica. Farther north gets very dry (hills brown) during the dry season. Farther south is more humid. This area is pretty much green year around like you would expect when you go to the tropics. The norther Tamarindo area was very disapointing to us being very dry and dusty.
What makes this House unique
Our house is located far enough away from the noise and busy trafic, but close enough to go in for dinner or shopping for what ever you need. Walk across the yard and walk out to a beautiful beach that goes for miles.

This house is something you would see on an episode of Miami Vice! Incredible location, spacious, modern and very well equipped. The pool area became our utopia. From here we could stay cool, people watch, monitor the surf and feed the very friendly iguanas. This is by far one of the best properties I have ever rented in Costa Rica! Thank You Susan for sharing your home with us!
Great location right in front of world class surf!
This place is quiet and right across the road from the beach with unobstructed view of the beach.The location of the house is just what we wanted , 5minutes from Jaco by car and just far enough away to be extremely relaxing. Askel Tucker was amazing with recommendations,cab rides,setting up tours and answering any queations we had. We will definitely be back!!!
Beautiful in quiet Hermosa!
We like to visit busy beach places, but really prefer to stay in more tranquil locations: Playa Hermosa was perfect! It was a perfect house for four teenagers too, and we spent a lot of time in the pool and on beach.
Great stay for a guys getaway!
Process was easy and streamlined. No hassles and the services from Askel and the cab rides were very helpful
Location location location
The location of this home is what made our trip so perfect. It’s in a slightly removed and private but safe feeling place with a security guard at night and neighbors next door. The beach is almost empty except for a few small families and of course the surfers in the early morning and evenings. There are fun beach bars and restaurants right down the street and the exciting Jaco is just a few minutes from there. The ocean in front of the house was pretty rough most of the time so when we wanted to do more swimming we went to Jaco beach and esterillos oesta and bejuco which were our two favorite beaches. There are some good places to eat along that way too. We definitely recommend having Askel arrange a dinner at home prepared by Chef Jose. That was probably our most memorable experience together as a family. Also, go to Manuel Antonio national park and hire a private tour guide to walk you through the forest and to the beach there. So worth it because of all the wild life he was able to point out and teach us about. The trip from the San Jose airport was longer than the description said, maybe about an hour and forty five mins without traffic. Definitely make sure you have a way to use Waze while you’re there. We rented a car and got the portable WiFi so that we could use our phone for directions. Made touring around on our own super easy. The house is not luxury but has pretty much everything you need to be comfortable. Stop and buy dish soap and sponge, dishwashing machine detergent and laundry detergent on your way. The description was incorrect about the bedroom set ups which wasn’t a big deal for ya but might be for others. There are two master suites each with a king bed and their own private full bathrooms. On the other side of the house there are two bedrooms each with two twin beds which share a hall full bathroom. There is another hall bathroom in the middle of the house which is only a half bath (no shower/tub). Susan the owner and Askel the house manager were easy to get in touch with when we had questions. We would recommend this home and stay here again if we visit the same location in Costa Rica again.
