Hermosa Cove has been hailed as a tropical paradise and a quiet, peaceful haven; it is important to continue to provide that experience to all of our visitors. Below are our expectations and guidelines for all guests staying at Hermosa Cove, but the broad ideas are ...
- Keep the peaceful tranquility people expect on an Hermosa Cove vacation.
- Love the guests and staff around you, treating them the same way you want to be treated.
- Think about the unique needs of those around you respect their well earned getaway.
The type of people that spend time here are the type of people that naturally live lives of peace and love and respect; we rarely, if ever, have problems. Our guests are beyond reproach and are consistently mindful of the behavior of the children, if they’ve come along. But, it’s still good to be clear as to what we expect from you and what you may expect from other guests.
If someone is a disturbance to your stay, please let us know so that we can treat the matter with the love and decency that every single person deserves. Every instance will be handled with the utmost care, unique to the situation and the people involved.
The following guidelines apply to everyone on property. Abiding by them will ensure a wonderful experience for every single guest.
These guidelines help keep with the ethos of Hermosa Cove as well as abide by rules of health and safety.

Loving Our Children:
Children come in many varieties. Two siblings can be completely different in their behavior and demeanor; but both are special, both sweet, and both worthy of our love. We (Deb and Clayton Korver, owners of Hermosa Cove) have raised three sons and now have the pleasure of being involved in the lives of our grandchildren. We know that children require both freedom and structure, one can’t exist without the other, and no two children need the same balance.
True confession - Clayton admits to being a difficult child to manage. His mother would attest to his "wild behavior" with story after story. Tales of getting kicked out of cub scouts. Tales that caused a catholic school nun to say he was “full of piss and vinegar”. Tales that often ended in a belt or paddle (which of course was the norm back in the 1950s). Tales that belong in a memoir and built the man who built Hermosa Cove. We understand the wild ruckus that often follows children; however, we ask you to bend towards structure, control, and peace for the sake and experience of the other guests at Hermosa Cove.
Together we can respect the quiet, peaceful solitude that has become a hallmark of Hermosa Cove; one that our guests have come to know and love.
