The Space

The natural beauty of Costa Rica surrounds our house. There are sometimes howler monkeys within 100 yards of the house, there’s always a variety of birds, and there are undeveloped hills just above the house where you can hike. When the Ylang-Ylang trees are flowering, their fragrance wafts into the house. The house is far enough outside of town to feel like you are living in the countryside, but the grocery store and other services are only a few minutes away.

The house, built in 2009, is very comfortable, elegant and well-maintained. It's large enough to easily fit six people. You can lie in a hammock and enjoy the view, or drink cocktails on the large patio. The house would be a good fit for someone who wants to explore nearby beaches or national parks. Samara Beach is a 45 minute drive, Carillo Beach is 55 minutes away, and there lots of other great beaches within 90 minutes. If you like hiking, we are 30 minutes away from Parque Barra Honda and about an hour and one half from Rincon de La Vieja National Park.

Guest Access

The house has wireless, cable t.v., a fully equipped kitchen and two and one half baths available for guests. It is very safe, surrounded by a wall with an electric fence. There’s a great swimming pool only 3 minutes from the house by car where you can swim for $4. My close friend Cesar will be your host. He has lived in Nicoya all of his life, surfs, and knows all the best beaches. He can also arrange for horseback rides through our neighbor Paco, or fishing trips through Cesar’s brother, who owns a fishing boat.

Interaction with Guests

I probably won't be at the house while you are there, but Cesar will be there and available to help you out.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood has a country feeling, with horses and cows often walking by the house, the sound of the birds chirping, the iguanas strolling around, the butterflies who invariably find their way into the house. The lot next door is used to grow corn, or for grazing horses or cattle.

Getting Around

Our house is about one hour from the airport in Liberia. You take a single road all the way from the airport to Nicoya. Our house is 300 yards off that road. I'll provide more detailed directions to the house when you make your reservation.
