An English family with a love for travel, adventure and surf escaped a wet and grey English winter with their 4 young children and happened upon Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa and did not want to leave this special place.
All the family loves to surf and live the simple shoeless outdoor lifestyle possible in and around the amazing nature and wildlife of the Nicoya Peninsula. Playa Hermosa is incredible and as designers by trade, we fulfilled our dream of building a beautiful and stylish family home in the tropics for us and others to enjoy.
The name 'Kala' comes from the Sanskrit to mean 'to be in the moment'. We believe that Casa Kala offers guests a truly special place to unwind and let go of their usual hectic lives. We designed a living space that offers comfort, style, privacy and tranquillity in a stunning jungle location that borders the most amazing surf beach in Costa Rica and just so happens to have been voted one of the top ten beaches in the world.
