About Judi Hertzog

My husband and I developed this property for our family in 2006. We fell in love with Costa Rica on our honeymoon and have made it our home away from home. We have decided to start renting it so others can share this special location as much as we have.

Judi Hertzog purchased this estate in 2006

Why Judi Hertzog chose Golfito

We love the warm tropical weather, and the secluded location. We both love to surf and found this area perfect for us.

What makes this estate unique

This is a very unique spot. A small private resort.

Pavones delight

  • 5 of 5

The stay at this site was too short. We were trying to be ambitious and stay on both sides of the Golfo Dulce in a 6 day period. We had such a fun time at this property surf, swim, and golf (yes golf). It was a lovely house enjoyed old movies that were there with the kids and felt pampered. Next time we bring more friends and family and have a family fiesta. You won't need but light clothing, packing light is recommended. We drove from San Jose you might consider flight to Quepos and renting car from Vamos. But we were glad to stop for groceries in Jaco for gourmet items ( Tofu, almond milk, granola, peanut butter, jelly etc) and Rio Claro for staples.) Groceries are high in Pavones. Make sure you turn on road before Surf restaurant, we missed it first time. Judi the owner is great and supportive by phone in those moments. Arrive before dark reduces anxiety for cars occupants. But when you wake up in am you will be amazed at properties location and amenities, like your own private Hotel.

The Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in late July with our best friends. There were 8 of us -- 4 adults, 2 older kids and 2 younger kids. Our families loves to surf, and the setting could not have been more perfect. There was a fantastic point break a short 10 min walk down the beach and a break right out front that's perfect for beginners and intermediates. The grounds and golf course are beautiful and meticulously maintained. The on-site family is wonderful and is adept at finding and sharing all kinds of Costa Rican wildlife/ reptiles with the guests. The town of Pavones is a 20 minute drive from the house, and there you will find massage, horseback riding, grocery stores, and a few restaurants. We will definitely be back!!

tropical lush setting

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of our week long stay could not have been better. The ocean is just outside your door. The one site family is very helpfull,friendly and gives you added security(even though none is needed in such a friendly community). The vast grounds are lush and maintained on daily basis with great care.a botanical garden. The pool is prime, and the house is a well built,spacious and relaxing. Great place,people and stay.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I could not have found a more perfect vacation home for my family which included 7 adults and children age 16, 11, 2, and 6 months. The grounds were exquisite with a manicured 3 hole golf course as well as the most beautiful flowers and plants imaginable. Also there were fruit trees to pick oranges, grapefruits, lemons, bananas, coconuts etc. We were able to get fresh milk and eggs every day from the neighbors with the help of the housekeeper. We went down the beach for fresh fish and a delivery truck brought fresh fruits, vegetables and some meats and chicken twice a week. The beach was right in the front and you could take long walks. Activities included some surfing and other board activities, kayaking in the ocean and swimming in the beautiful salt water pool, golf or just relaxing. Everyone in the family loved being there even though we were somewhat isolated. It was soooo wonderful to be away from commercial property. When we did not prepare our own meals, which was infrequent, there were restaurants one half hour away. We took several wonderful tours with CoCo tours to an animal refuge and a riverboat ride. There were other activities available but unnecessary for us. The owner was exceedingly helpful answering all of our questions regarding the location and transportation to the property.

The house was lovely with room for all 11 of us.. some were small children. We had all the conveniences we needed and the house family that lived on the property were more than helpful.

As I said.. this house and location was so very perfect for us... We even had a wedding with our immediate family and some Costa Ricans on the lovely beach. We all felt we had arrived in heaven.

We hope to return in the near future.

Costa Rica is my "Happy Place," filled with wonderful memories and promises of more to come! Upon arrival I quickly unwind and relax in this tropical paradise. A warm inviting home nestled in a beautiful extended garden with private pool all overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Whether I choose to curl up in a comfy chair on the deck with a book, check out the local surf spot, see a group of monkeys swing by or catch the evening sunset, all is possible from this beautiful home.
