This house is located a little off the beaten track, but close enough to town, so you can enjoy a truly relaxing break away from the crowds. Enjoy a pool/hot tub, fully furnished indoor and outdoor lounge areas, functioning kitchen and beach access.
Your room is located on a completely private and separate floor to any other. The rooms themselves are basic but clean, and come with a private bathroom, aircon/fan and storage facilities. Cable TV is located in the main room upstairs.
You have access to the whole villa and are welcome to use the pool, the hot tub, the kitchen, the grill, the television (with cable), and the many many hammocks.
The owner, Michael, works in town as a diving instructor and is usually out for most of the day. We have quite an active social life most evenings (beach fires, live bands etc.), so you can either join us or enjoy a quiet stay in the villa away from it all.
The view is beautiful and the area is very peaceful. The villa is secluded but it is very much in the heart of real Costa Rica.
Michael usually travels to and from town (5 mins in the car) two or three times a day so you can arrange a lift with him. However, if your schedules don't match then a local taxi is just a few dollars to/from town.
You can stay as long as you like or just for one day, it's completely up to you. Feel free to contact me for different rates.
# Please note that the manager of this property has recently changed and the positive reviews left by others could not be moved across to the new account. The new manager (Jess, i.e. me), is currently located in Sydney, Australia, but is in regular contact with the property owner. Please allow a little extra time for me to respond to all enquiries due to the 17 hour time difference - Thanks in advance.
I truly enjoyed my time at the house and ended up extending and spending the rest of my time in Costa Rica at the house. It truly became my home away from home. I actually left for a week to go to Nicaragua and came back and it felt like I returned to family. Their dogs are wonderful and the older one even accompanied me to the beach. :)
It is a bit farther so the $6 taxi rides can add up but if Miha can give you a ride, he will do it on his way to or from work. Also, at this time there is no wifi, but i had a data card so it was helpful as I work online.
I would definitely stay here again....and hope to see everyone who is at the house in the future. :)
Great quiet spot, 10 minute walk to Ocotal beach. Room with shower and private fridge upstairs is all you need. Tons of space for reading, lounging, tanning. A bit too far to walk to town, but a taxi or ride from host are both good bets. Host Miha and Air Bnb contact Laura both super awesome, friendly people who always offer to take you out if you feel like being social. Cab to Hermosa beach, or go scuba diving in Coco. Had an awesome relaxing yet social stay. xoxoxo
Had a great time. The host was fun to hang out with and the location was great. Definitely recommend.
