About Kelli McMullen
We are native Californians and love the ocean. We recently relocated from southern California, and the quaint beachside town of San Clemente to St Petersburg, FL. The beach is where our heart is and we want to share a little bit of our paradise with you! This photo was taken at El Avion in Manuel Antonio. A WW2 plane sits right on the property and is now the bar!!!
Kelli McMullen purchased this Estate in 2014
Why Kelli McMullen chose Playa Hermosa
We were married in Costa Rica and since then we have been looking for property. Perseverance and patience paid off when we found this gem. The previous owners put their heart and soul into this home and we will do the same.
What makes this Estate unique
Being beach front has its obvious advantages. This is a guard-gated community with foot patrol on the beach and around the community so you will have an extra added sense of security. The house is big enough to have privacy but also has a great community feel. Inside the furniture was made for the house. It is unique and interesting as is the art in and of itself. Beautiful stained glass and mural-art throughout enhance the uniqueness and character of this home. This is a great family get-away... (top (3rd floor is private owners apartment)

Great for the whole family.
What a wonderful family vacation we had. There were 9 of us (more than enough room) with age ranges of 14-64. There was something to do for all of us whether as a group or individually; an outing away, surfing or simply to sit and watch the day unfold.
The location is perfect, you have miles of beach with limited public access so it feels like your own beach. Only when we ventured out did we realize how busy the local beaches really are.
The amenities were exceptional; with Roberto as our connoisseur of all things local and Maria who kept the place in top notch shape, we felt like we had it all. We must also give a shout-out to Kitty the resident dog. If you have a fondness for dogs they will allow Kitty to be a part of your family for the duration of your stay. She walked the beach with us every night chasing crabs, waited for us when we were at the pool, and kept vigilance at night as if it were her job to keep us all safe. If you need a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of a busy life this is the place.
Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to come home with wonderful memories of our stay in Costa Rica.
We are so glad that you enjoyed our little piece of paradise!
The house was perfect for our 4 families (7 adults, 8 children between 11 and 17 years old). Having both the beach and the pool were perfect. We absolutely loved Yo-Yo (the cook at the swim up bar). Her food is fabulous. The kids couldn't wait until 11:00 when she opened to get a smoothie. Roberto (the property manager) was so friendly and helpful we invited him to have dinner with us one evening. He taught the children surf lessons, which they loved. The sunsets were gorgeous from the house. I highly recommend the house!
Coasta Rican paradise
Beautiful home with authentic CR feel located in a safe environment. Plenty of room and comfort. Plenty of quiet rooms. Roberto, the house manager, was terrific. He was in constant contact and available to assist as needed. The rental is the first 2 levels and you are restricted from the upper level. The homeowner keeps this. Even though someone was there most days, you would not have any idea. The housekeeper took some getting used to as she was always sweeping around the house unannounced, but she was friendly and tried to keep out of the way.
Overall a great home and location. You will not find better in Hermosa Palms:)
Roberto was the person overseeing the property and he did an excellent job. Very prompt on anything we needed. Maria was the housekeeper and was there every day (except her day off which is Sunday). Everything you need is there!
Amazing, unreal, perfection
This was the most amazing place I have ever stayed with great service, best beach, tons of security, safe, great surfing, access to everything Costa Rica has to offer and I'm sure I am selling it short. Book it, book it now and stay 4 extra days for good measure you won't regret it. Cecil, Utah
Amazing house in a beautiful setting!
All 13 members of the Bumgarner family (ages 3-75) spent a week in your beautiful house. We had a delightful time! The house was perfect, with comfortable beds, nice showers, fun pool table, and fabulous views. Maria did a fine job working around all of us to keep the house clean! The pool was an added plus- great for us all, but especially the little ones in the family.
We were slightly concerned reading some of the reviews and information about the beach/ocean at the house, thinking we would need to drive somewhere everyday to swim in the ocean. Turns out the beach is perfect, and the ocean in front of the house was safe as long as you listen to Roberto about where the rip tide was. We loved the black sand beach, it was something unique that we will all remember.
I can't say enough about Roberto, our new friend! Our trip wouldn't have nearly been as successful without him. He arranged all of our excursions, drew us maps, made reservations, and taught some of the guys to surf!
My husband was especially impressed with the quality and beauty of the woodwork in the house- it truly was Costa Rican!
Thanks for the GREAT accommodations, hopefully we will be back one day!
