About Kathi Woodley

We are a group of friends living in Southern California. We love to travel, surf and explore. When we decided to purchase a vacation home together, Costa Rica was the number one choice for each of us. We love it here and are confident you'll fall just as much in love with Costa Rica as we did! Pura Vida!

Kathi Woodley purchased this house in 2014

Costa Rica is a travelers paradise. Hermosa Palms is a surf lover's dream come true. This home fits an array of wants and desires for the adventurous, the pool lovers, the surfers and boogie boarders, the explorers and even those that just want to unplug, relax and do nothing. Our home is perfect for all of it!

What makes this house unique

Falling asleep and waking up to the beautiful Pacific Ocean in your eyesight is one of life's greatest pleasures. This home offers both from the comfort of the living room, master bedroom, deck and balcony. It is truly a slice of heaven on earth!

Best Beach Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was amazing. It is fairly secluded, meaning the beaches are not full of people. There are a decent number of semi-permanent and regular owners in the housing community that give it a "neighborhood" feel. The house is perfect. An incredible view out of the dining room, which leads directly out onto the beach. The house is air-conditioned (important during the hot months), has three nice-sized bedrooms (the master is amazing!), a nice kitchen and even a washer/dryer.

We loved our vacation. My 10 yr. old daughter spent most of her time wandering the beach or in the community pool, which has a swim-up bar with the proprieter offering a decent selection of drinks and food for all ages. The ocean was warm (I'm used to SoCal) and a bit rough at times, but not so bad to keep you out. We had a little bit of rain almost every day during our July vacation, but only 1 day when it rained most of the day. None of the rain was enough to keep us from venturing out.

This vacation was definitely the most relaxing, enjoyable trip we have taken as a family. I would not hestitate to recommend to anyone looking for an amazing beach experience. Pura Vida!

Just a few steps away from the 85 degree water!!

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed off the beach during two previous visits, this house was a perfect fit for what we love to do. Even when cooling off in the AC or enjoying a sandwich at lunch time, the view of the crashing waves and blue sky never grew old. Our kids played on the beach like it was their back yard and the surf, once again, didn't disappoint. With plenty of well appointed space, the house worked well for us. Considering "fair balance", there were a few minor issues but more importantly, the owner & the local team were quick to respond and rectify. We can only hope to return as it was one of our favorite vacations so far. Pura Vida

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have asked for anything better! The home was even more incredible in person than it looked in the pictures. We woke up to a gorgeous view of the ocean from the master bedroom every morning. The ocean was literally steps aways from the patio and the water was 87 degrees and stayed that temperature for our entire trip. I had never felt water that warm in my entire life which is why we spent so much time in the water. But when we wanted a break from the warmth, we just walked a few feet away back to the completely air conditioned house to lounge on the couch and watch a bit of tv, make some drinks, have some snacks and the go back out. There is also a beautiful pool with a swim up bar just a few houses away so you have the best of both worlds with a pool or an ocean for whatever feel in the mood for. We had the best time ever and will definitely being going back and would not stay anywhere else!!!

Rest, Relaxation and Fun in the sun⛱☀️

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is exactly what I was looking for to relax and unwind. I love the open floor plan and the rooftop balcony. Located on the beach with a tremendous surf break, this is a surfers paradise. The community pool only 100 yards away is one of the best I have seen. The bar is perfectly located so you can either walk or swim to it. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly, making you feel like you've been friends for years. If its retail therapy, nightlife or great bars and restaurants you are looking for, Jaco is a short drive away. I cannot wait to return.
