We can meet you at the beach if you arrive by boat from Sierpe. You can also fly in to the nearby Drake Airport on either Sansa Airlines or Nature Air Airlines. In the rainy season it is very difficult, if not impossible, to drive to Drake because of steep mountain roads and a river to ford. From late December to late August driving to Drake is possible, a 4X4 is best. The last gas station is at Chacarita, where you turn off the Interamerican Highway. It is best if you call ahead for road conditions. Secure off street parking is available. We'll get you settled and we will explain the layout of the town and options for local tours etc. We are always in the next house in case you need something or for an emergency.
Bahia Drake is a small village. No Starbucks, no traffic, and no worries.
There is also no bank or ATM, so plan accordingly!!
There are 8 small restaurants and 2 small super markets within walking distance. Offering typical Costa Rican fare, seafood, pizza, chicken, etc.
Walk or take a 4x4 taxi if necessary. Rides are $6-10 to anywhere nearby.
We recommend booking any tours directly with a nearby tour operator. They are the same price as everyone and also offer tours run by locals. Help support the local economy of Drake Bay.
No Smoking in the house.
No Pets allowed
Great house with world class view. Center of town, walk everywhere. Just a short walk to the beach. Can't wait to get back.
We had an amazing time at Binya House. The location is perfect, right in the middle of town (albeit a tiny town) and with the most stunning views over Drake Bay. Each morning we woke up to everything from Scarlett macaws in the front trees to newly hatched baby iguanas.
Bob was a wonderful host. Super friendly and helpful with all of our emails and questions throughout the stay. It was lovely to chat to Bob and learn more about the local wildlife.
The house itself is very comfortable and has all you need to self cater and relax. Although it was very hot the fans were sufficient to keep us comfortable.
Drake bay itself is fabulous, although a little too hot when we were there in late April. Recommend the coastal walk to Santa josecito beach.
We stayed at Bob's place for 2 nights. His place was very comfortable and had everything you need, specially the hammocks on the porch were you can lay down and admire the beautiful views of the bay. Bob was very helpful, he picked up my mothers suitcase from the boat wile we were out enjoying the beach. We had a great time at BOb's place!
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Bahia Drake sehr genossen! Ein kleines Paradies! Binya House ist klein und einfach, aber wir hatten alles, was wir brauchten und die Aussicht von den Hängematten aus über die Bucht war einfach fantastisch. Etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist der Töfflärm von der nahen Straße! Die Kommunikation mit Bob und Hank verlief reibungslos und beide waren sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend.
Wir genossen mit unseren Kinder eine wunderbare Wanderung zum Playa San Josecito! Wie im Paradies, von einem schönen Strand zum nächsten und dann per Boot zurück. Und wir erfüllten uns den Wunsch von Reitausritt mit Galopp am Strand-einfach toll (mit Melvin von Los Planes). Wären gerne noch länger an diesem wunderbaren Ort geblieben!
Perfect place to stay while in Drake Bay! Ideal location--only a few minutes walk to the beach and the village center, but still very quiet and peaceful. The house is spacious, clean, and very well equipped. The private backyard offers stunning views of the bay from up high and the hammocks are wonderful to relax in and enjoy the birds, the greenery, and the ocean. Bob and Hank were great hosts. Book it, you won't regret it!
Location…Location…Location…This place has awesome views. Bob & Hank were great hosts. Bob even met us at the beach when our boat arrived. Since they live next door, they were easily available to help us in whatever we needed. They recommended activities and restaurants. We loved to relax in the hammocks for afternoon siestas, and listen to the macaws in tree. Hank talked about putting in air conditioning in the near future …which would be nice. But the fans worked fine for now. This is definitely a place where you can just go at a slow pace and relax.

Bob and Hank were great hosts. They gave us good tips on where to eat in town, which was only steps away. We spent hours in the backyard lounging in hammocks looking at the sea. What a beautiful area with birds and wildlife. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants peace and quiet.
