This comfortable cabina is surrounded by nature. It is on a private and gated property and is just an 8-minute walk to the surf break of Playa Negra. Opportunities for healing and relaxation as well as adventure are abundant in this magical corner of Guanacaste.
The cabina is 850 square feet. It has an open floor plan, and is surrounded by greenery on all sides. It is on a gated, private property, and rental includes a gate clicker for the automatic gate and parking is at the cabina. There is also a safe. There are 4 beds (one queen and 3 twins). It can comfortably sleep 4 people. There is hot water, as well as a local telephone and wireless internet. The beach is a short walk away, as are the town's stores and restaurants.
We live in a house on the same property as the cabina. We will greet you upon arrival, but besides that, you can enjoy your privacy as much as you'd like. We are available for anything you need during your stay, however.
We really enjoyed staying here; Claire and her partner were great and helpful hosts.
The cabana was comfortable and a short walk to the beach. Took in some really great wildlife in the area.
This is a remarkable place!
My boyfriend and I spent a week at Claire's cabina. We were working our remote tech jobs, so we wanted a place with internet that was also near a beach for swimming after work. This was perfect. We loved having the hammock outside and we got the best sleep of the whole trip here.
Los Pargos/Playa Negra is pretty isolated, the nearest ATM is almost an hour away by very bumpy roads. Come prepared! Also, there are only a handful of places to eat, but there are some tiny markets and Claire has the cabina well set up for cooking.
There are plenty of resources for adventurers in the area, you can join tours or take surf lessons. We went without a car, but the bus system is limited and slow, so be ready to pay $30 to get there from Tamarindo.
If you are looking for tons of privacy and sparkling clean surfaces, you might be better off at a hotel. The cabina is made with mesh screens that lets in breeze, as well as some dust. You also need to be okay being surrounded by wildlife. We loved hearing the howler monkeys and seeing iguanas, but taken by surprise to see a scorpion behind the toilet! (The internet says the local varieties aren't dangerous, and a sting isn't any worse than a bee).
This would be the perfect spot for a group of surfers, or people who want a few seriously mellow days of reading books. Claire and her partner live on the same property, and they were great neighbors.
