About this listing
Cabinas Colibri is a privately owned Inn made up of a main house and two cabins. The main house is where our on sight host resides and oversees the property and the needs and comfort of our guests.
Each cabina has the following: two bedrooms, a bathroom with a large, tiled shower, a kitchen and a living area. With locally made ceramic tiles and high ceilings, the cabins remain airy and cool, even on the warmest of days. The furniture is all locally hand crafted.
The cabins comfortably sleep four people. For each additional person, there is an additional charge. See the Rates section for details.
The cabins overlook a lush landscape of local trees and flowering plants. It is impossible not to delight in the many birds that visit the property. Guests can also hear the distinct sound of howler monkeys nearby.
Cabinas Colibri has been described as a sanctuary by many who have stayed there. The cabins and the main house are connected by an ornate privacy wall which surrounds a courtyard that is filled with local, flowering vegetation. Whether relaxing in this home away from home or enjoying the sights, sounds and great food of Costa Rica, guests can relax in the privacy and security of their lodging.

What a wonderful place with true and pure relaxation. Our host was and is a kind and gracious person. If the beauty of the ocean is not enough to make you feel alive and good the people are!!
I stayed at Cabinas Colibri for three days last week and had a fantastic experience. We were pretty dusty and road-tired when we pulled up, but Brian welcomed us right away and showed us around. The grounds are beautiful and the house is very airy and open (literally - there are no doors in the house besides the front one!). It has everything you need for a rustic getaway in Los Pargos. The 'neighborhood' (which is the main stretch of Los Pargos) is great - there is a fantastic breakfast place steps away and several great surf shops/restaurants/bars down the road. And you are maybe a 15 min walk from the beach!!! You can also drive to several other beaches and are 25-30 minutes from the bigger town of Tamarindo, which has larger grocery shops (there are small markets in town but you can get anything you need in Tamarindo). We never met Trever but Brian was very welcoming and we talked to him every day when we saw him around the property or out on the main road. I very highly recommend Cabinas Colibri for anyone who is looking for an out of the way vacation destination.
Die Wohnung ist ok ca. 15min zu Fuß vom Strand, dieser ist zum Surfen geeignet zum Schwimmen eher nicht.
Im Ort gibt es eine Pizzeria und auch einen kleinen Shop zum Einkaufen.
Die Anlage selber ist schön, ruhig und groß in jedem Zimmer sind Ventilatoren. Die Küche ist spartanisch eingerichtet, zum Frühstück machen reicht es vollkommen, jedoch alles mitbringen Salz, Zucker, Tee usw. sind nicht vorhanden.
Die Straße zum Haus ist zwar nicht geteert aber auch ohne Allrad zu erreichen. Als wir dort waren gab es leider kein Wifi, soll aber in den nächsten Monaten eingerichtet werden.
Wäsche waschen kostet 5 Dollar + Waschmittel extra.
Der Gastgeber war sehr freundlich und die Übergabe hat super geklappt :) vielen dank
Our trip here was nice- the cabina was bigger than expected- so that was a pleasant surprise. We really loved the area- though the beach is definitely more geared towards surfing than swimming with the riptides. The few shops nearby were cute- all we really needed- Jalopenos restaurant was our favorite- organically grown ingredients and a very fresh healthy menu. The place was kept clean, though certain things needed repair- like the screens- we had a few visitors. We were a little surprised to find out that Trever wasn't actually the person to meet us- which made us a little uncomfortable. He has a property manager named Brian who was very helpful and friendly, we were just surprised to meet him and not Trever. Trever did come by a couple of days after our arrival and was also very helpful and friendly. He had offered to pick us up from the bus stop and found us a taxi to Santa Cruz for an early departure. Overall, I'd recommend Cabinas Colibri- definitely a good space for your money. Area is beautiful.
The cabina was large and in a lovely courtyard in town about a 5-10minute walk to the beach. The on site mgr. Brian was most helpful, and vey knowledgeable about the biodiversity of the area. The amenities are basic and adequate. I stayed a month and loved it!!!
I share the same oponion with the previous reviewers. Just adding a wonderfull mediterian architexture of the cabinas and sorroundings which makes a great compact with the garden and the front house. Recomend this and would come back anytime.
About the Host, Trever
Im originally from Southern California, and grew up surfing and skateboarding. I have been coming to this part of Costa Rica for the last 5 years and have really fallen in love with the waves and natural beauty of this region. We have a large selection of great waves to surf in this area and we also have one of Costa Rica's only skate parks right here in town. There is great diving and fishing here and I have become an avid spear fisher and free diver. This area is well known for its fresh Snapper, local Lobster and small town vibe. Over the years I have found the best restaurants and the funnest surf possible. I am always happy to share my Costa Rica travel tips with anyone interested in listening. Whether you need to rent a car, find a yoga class, surf a perfect left, or reel in a healthy fish, I can help you with anything in Costa Rica. Don't worry about your budget we can help you enjoy your time in Costa Rica the most cost effective way. I'm a firm believer that "life is what you make it" so make it awesome and visit us in Costa Rica!
