"We had a wonderful time in Kristy's home. The location was perfect! Marco the property manager was helpful setting up excursions and giving us information. The "House Book" with favorite restaurants, tours etc. was extremely helpful. The pool was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better location. My family is already planning our next trip to Costa Rica!! Thank you Kristy for a great first experience."

"My two friends and I really enjoyed our stay. The home was beautiful and the grounds are perfectly maintained. The house is a nice setup for couples, as both bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and each have their own bathroom.
There are no condiments except salt and pepper, so be prepared to buy everything if you want to cook (we left olive oil). Also, there was only one bike, and the tires were completely deflated, so don't bank on having any. Lastly, Ricardo was amazing, but he speaks very little English, so you might need to get a little creative.
Overall, lovely stay and the owner/Ricardo were very responsive and helpful."

"Thank you Tim,
Having spent past several years going south and cruising I must say that we have never experienced anything quite like your lovely home and the beauty of Hermosa Palms. The home itself is well laid out and very comfortable. The only issue we had was with a sink drain and that was handled promptly. This community is truly a magical place with a monkey to eat from your hands in the back yard to the beautiful macaws making thier daily 3.30 pm flight around the pool. We had coffee every morning around 6.30 am at the tiki hut poolside looking out over a spectacular beach scene. Days spent exploring the country side and evenings on the beach applauding the most glorious sunsets. It truly is that beautiful.. The people that we met there were mostly resident owners but without exception they made us feel very welcome. I can not say enough about our personal experience. Be aware though that this may be habit forming, as we were making plans for a return before we left. Perhaps an extended stay of lets say a month next time. What do you think Tim, can you part with this little slice of heaven for that long for us?
Again many thanks
We look forawrd to our return.
Harold & Janet"

"My family and I came to Costa Rica from New Jersey to enjoy a bit warmer weather since our December had been colder than usual. We envisioned long, warm days lounging and swimming at the pool enjoying the beautiful surroundings. This home is truly lovely, well-kept, clean and nice as the pictures displayed at VRBO.
If I were rating this review solely on the house, it would be 5 stars. However, there two areas of the home that I believe that the owner may want to consider improvement on – 1) the master bathroom shower drainage system needs replacement/repair and 2) the living room large black sofa is in poor condition.
Matt, the caretaker, was a great help for anything we needed. He was attentive and addressed our concerns timely. He made suggestions regarding restaurants, entertainment, and nightlife in Jaco which is 10 minutes driving by car from the house.
Playa Hermosa is super cool little town with amazing beaches, views, waves, restaurants and bars.
We rented a car so the trips to and from Jaco for dinner, nightlife, afternoon surfing contests, etc were a blast.
We visited Manuel Antonio beach (1.5 hrs drive from the house), went zip lining and rode ATV, which we loved. We also visited Arenal volcano, which was a long trip, but worth it. We loved the volcano and surrounding areas. Next time we will check out the hot spring.
All in All it was one of the nicest places we have stayed in Costa Rica...This was our 2nd time in the country, So a big thanks to Liz and Matt for allowing us to stay in your home and taking good care of us.
