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.
Small table and chairs, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and fridge make refreshements easy to prepare

Kim and Tim were very nice and welcoming. They were quick to reply and very sweet! We highly recommend!
Tim and Kim were extremely welcoming and friendly hosts. They provided us with great information about the area upon arrival and gave us more activities and things to do than we could possibly hope accomplish while there!. They did everything they could to make us feel at home and welcome!
Cabina Blanca is a lovley little place to stay at with the friendliest hosts we have ever meet! We can only recommand it to anyone how want s to relax close to the beach! Very clean, lots of information about the area, a beautiful pool to swim in, diffrent wildlife close by! An unforgetable stay!
Our trip to Costa Rica started off great with our trip to Tim & Kim's guest house! We had a fun adventure getting to their place around midnight; plane was delayed, rental car service took longer than expected and GPS took us down a wrong road for over 20 minutes! When we did find our way to Tim & Kim's, they were there to welcome us and give us a great intro to the house as well as some of the local customs!
We were introduced to Costa Rica's road system in complete darkness, this made finding their place quite an adventure. After a week or so in Costa Rica we came to expect the driving and quick changes to dirt roads.
We really enjoyed the local rural feel of Playa Conchal & Playa Brasalito which were both in walking distance of the house. Though we did not get to meet the neighborhood coati "Doug", we completely enjoyed our stay at Tim & Kim's guest house!
Kim and Tim were very hospitable and helped make my girlfriend and I have a very positive experience. The location of their property is conveniently located near many gorgeous beaches. I would highly recommend renting with them because they take good care of their tenants.
Awesome time at cabina Blanca. Kim and Tim's place is located in an awesome spot walking distance to Playa Conchal. Tim and Kim were both super helpful in communicating before I arrived, answering questions and helping me set up my rental car. Would definitely recommend their place. It is exactly like the pictures, no surprises. The only thing I would make sure of is that you're ok staying in a place with no A/C. It clearly states that the place doesn't have it, but if you're not used to the heat it can be pretty rough. Overall awesome listing and great hosts!

About the Host, Kim And Tim
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 (website hidden). our Spanish is steadily improving :)
