About Debbie Norris
My husband and I have loved Costa Rica since our first trip here in 2010. Te he community of Hermosa Palms has been the perfect spot for our family. The warm friendly community, the uncrowed beaches , the beatiful landscaping and endless birdwatching make it the perfect spot. The BeachClub is beatiful and provides all the amenities we could ask for. We are removed from the crowds but convenient to everything. We especially love walking on the beach and watching the ever present surfers and daily gorgeous sunsets. We hope you will love it too.
Debbie Norris purchased this House in 2014
Why Debbie Norris chose Jaco
It is the ideal location for a family or large group with activities ranging from relaxing pool side to adventure filled days. The variety of excursions available are endless. We loved the idea of a gated community and being steps away from the beach.

This house at Casa Alma 78 was beautiful and had our private pool. Home was clean and spacious. Debbie was very easy to work with and a delight to speak with. We definitely recommend this rental to anyone that is looking for a house to stay at a very reasonable rate.
Thank you Debbie for a great time.

Loved staying at Casa Alma! We enjoyed the location, the pool at the house and also the community pool! Used the swim up bar almost every day and Yo-yo is great! The food and drinks were wonderful. My son fed Don the iguana bananas that lives there :) The only thing that was a concern about the house were the stairs- three of us fell going down them :(
So glad you enjoyed the house and pool. Yes. The food at the pool bar is delishious. Sorry for your issues with the stairs. Do you have any suggestions for us that would correct this for the future?

Great Stay at Hermosa Palms
We had a terrific stay at Casa Alma. Perfect location to take day trips up and down the pacific coast. We loved being able to walk to the beach and the community pool that boasts a swim up bar, fresh food and small market. Definitely head to the beach at sunset. We went to local places like the Backyard Beach Bar and Vista Hermosa located directly on Hermosa Beach. The kids loved the private pool and sat outside every morning enjoying the bird watching. We took a day trip to Tortuga, went ATVing, Ziplining and explored the local beaches.
A taste of paradise
Everything was perfect from the location to the pool at your doorstep. Lovely property and I hope to be back.
This was a long awaited family vacation. One year in the planning.
We arrived in San José, and drove to the house at 11:00pm. We rented a GPS from the car rental company, but also had downloaded the WAZE App. We used the App all the time. It lets you know of slow traffic and alternate routes. Highly recommend getting an international phone plan for your visit. The drive was easy, a bit dark, but with caution everything went well.
From the time that we arrived at the house, it was everything that I was expecting. The house looks exactly as it did in the pictures, but a lot better - a little hidden paradise.
We all loved being able to swim in the pool after a morning run in the beach, or after a long day sightseeing.
The community pool was amazing and so were the Piña Coladas. I have never had a better one, and I grew up in Puerto Rico. The fish tacos at the bar, were more like fish burritos, they were huge.
I had a one hour massage by the beach, and it was absolutely a delight and so relaxing. Highly recommended.
The AC in the house works great.
It took a while to figure out the washer, sometimes it would take along time to drain, but it was nice to have both, washer and dryer, available. We always had plenty of hot water for showers.
The bed in the master bedroom is very firm, There were plenty of beach towels available, and everything we needed to make a home cooked meal.
The Wi-Fi signal is very strong. At night all six of us were able to connect to the Wi-Fi and text, call or check e-mails.
Marco, the house manager was always available and very helpful. I contacted him before arrival, and he was able to get us some drinks, fruits and breakfast items for the next morning.
There is a small convenience store by the Pool Club House, where you can get drinks and some food as well.
It was really easy to get to Jaco for groceries, dinner or just walk around town. We felt safe at all time. But make sure that you don't walk alone, specially ladies.
We went to Manuel Antonio, Vista los Sueños Adventure park, Rainmaker Park, and Tortuga Island.
The trip to Tortuga Island had its pros and cons. We were picked up and dropped off right at the door of Casa Alma. The food was amazing and so was the trip. However, I would of preferred to have more down time, to relax by the ocean. It was a full packed day.
Bowies Point is a local restaurant very close to the house. The food and service was great.
Thank you Debbie, we had an amazing stay.
I am so glad that everything went as planned and you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for writing the review of your stay.
Happy New Year

A week in paradise!
All I can say is WOW! WOW! WOW!
Planning a trip for 8 adults in a foreign country, a wedding, and dental surgery is VERY stressful HOWEVER the moment I walked into your home at Hermosa Palms, the stress melted away. We decided to walk through your beautiful neighborhood and we found heaven. The stunning black sand beach combined with inviting warm water, like I said…wow.wow.wow. The beach was above and beyond what we ever could have expected. Quiet, secluded and absolutely breathtaking!
I have to say I am hesitant to write a good review, for selfish reasons…I don’t want others to learn about Hermosa Palms at Playa Hermosa, Jaco...I want this little gem to stay a secret.
The house was convenient for daily excursions, but far enough from the Jaco party scene. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. The house was clean and it had everything we needed for our memorable vacation. Enjoying coffee sitting by the pool watching the scarlet macaw’s eating in the tree behind the house, yup, PARADISE FOUND!
The management company and security people were all very friendly! The Wi-Fi was strong, the neighborhood was quiet, any communication was prompt. The pool’s were clean and warm.
The new Beach club was lovely! Yoyo was an absolute sweetheart! Her team, her food, her personality and her drinks were all second to none! She alone is a reason to come back!
Yes, there is always a few flaws, but none that the homeowners had control over, such as the inconsiderate person who allows their little yippie dog to bark, at all hours of the night, outside of our bedroom window (and the lower level bedroom window).
My daughter’s beach wedding on Playa Hermosa was icing on the cake. It was the most breathtaking wedding I have ever seen! I could not have asked for a more perfect day for my daughter to marry her prince charming!
Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to rent your home. Thank you for the enjoyable, unforgettable experience. When we return to the Pacific side of CR, you can bet we will be back!"
I am so glad all of your plans came together. Best wishes to your daughter and her new husband. Thank you for your review and hapoybthe house was what you were looking for. Yes definitely come see us again.
