About this listing
Cabina Blanca - tucked away at the top of a gated community with lovely views of the Pacific ocean, the beach a short walk and the towns of Tamarindo and Flamingo only 25 min. away. Roomy, queen bed, private patio.
This space is a completely self contained guest house, about 15 feet away from the main house. With an abundance of natural light, this unique oasis is cozy and inviting with high ceilings.
Although not air conditioned, the cabina enjoys an elevated position on the site and is orientated to take advantage of breezes. In the room, there are ceiling and pedestal fans.
Within the suite is a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. There is queen sized bed and a small table and chairs. The bathroom includes a full sized shower.
Guests will have access to the sitting space in front of the cabina and the chairs and hammock in the private tower patio upstairs.
Guests will also have use of the private pool, lounge chairs and hammock next door.
Wireless Internet is available in the cabina, your private patio and the pool area. For long term stay, we can make arrangements for use of the washer and dryer.
Interaction with guests
We live in the main house next door, but you may remain as private as you wish. We are always happy to talk with guests about our experiences and theirs, as well as gladly give information about the area and it's amenities, or even help coordinate activities and tours.
We feel very safe in our gated community, tucked away from the "hustle and bustle" of some of the nearby towns, but still close enough to enjoy all the area has to offer.
This relaxing atmosphere is great for bird watching and animal visitors, walks or just enjoying the pool.
We are central to enjoy all the coast has to offer with 13+ beaches within less than one hour drive. Matapolo is the closest town to us. It is a 5 minute drive away and has a couple of restaurants and grocery stores. Tamarindo is 25 mins south of us and Flamingo is 25 mins north. Both are an easy drive for taking in the restaurants, shops and services.
Being a bit away from it all a vehicle is a must. A 4x4 would allow you to explore even further, but for those quick 10-minute runs into town, a car works just fine.
Other things to note
This is a pure Costa Rica experience - not all polish and shine, but comfortable and inviting and the stuff that memories are made of.
For the comfort of future travellers, there is no smoking permitted in the space itself. General cleanliness will reduce the appearance of "un-welcome" guests.
We are former Canadians who have escaped the snow! We have given up toboganning in favor of boogie boarding at nearby beaches.
Looking for a change of pace we left Calgary, Alberta in March 2013 and came to Costa Rica with the mindset that everyday is a new adventure! With our love of animals and photography, we have many opportunities to explore the huge variety that Costa Rica has to offer.
PS. our Spanish is steadily improving :)
