Why Tim Van Zoost chose Playa Hermosa
We rented many condos and homes nearby and then happened to find Hermosa Palms and rent in this community. Our intention was to build elswhere, but the specatular beach life and community of Hermosa Palms quickly changed our minds.
What makes this house unique
Long walks on a mostly empty beach other than a few surfers enjoying themselves, offered more than we could ever have dreamed for.If you are a bird watcher then you found the right spot. Parrots, pelicans, hummingbirds and a hundred more species are there to see. When you need ammenities or a night out for dining its at your fingertips. No long drives just to get the basics. Your precious vacation time is left for what you want to do. Relax and enjoy your self.
