The space

Marbella is still one of the most untouched beaches and one of the most consistent surf spots on the pacific coast of Costa Rica. This contributes to the fact that you can still find amazing surf with no one out in the water or just enjoy having the beach all for yourself. We offer yoga lessons with Cecilia and our guest are welcome to use our yoga shala for personal practice.
We are located 2 hours away from Liberia International Airport. 1 hour from Nosara – Playa Guiones which has an airport for domestic flights and 1 hour from the very touristic beach town of Tamarindo.
Playa Negra, which also offers great waves, is 30 minutes away. The Wildlife Refuge of Ostional is one of the World's most important nesting sites for Olive Ridley Sea Turtles is about 30 minutes away as well
The casita is located on the hills of playa Marbella surrounded by beautiful nature. We are located about 2 km from the small village of Marbella and 5 minutes drive to the beach.
The property is located in a secluded area. Perfect for those who like their space. It is recommended to have a car or motorcycle to get around.
There are a variety of restaurants and few small grocery stores in the area for your convenience.
The casita sleeps 3 people. It has a queen size bed and a single bed. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, hot water, A/C and ceiling fans. The water is filtered and safe to drink.
Cleaning service is available upon request.
Laundry is also available.

We had a fantastic time at Cecilia and Yoav’s casita - the perfect place to decompress. They were wonderful hosts, extremely down to earth and very helpful. One reviewer mentioned getting gas in Santa Cruz (or between Liberia and Santa Cruz) before you make your way down. Good advice. If you are in a bind you can buy a gallon (milk jug) of gas from a guy in Marbella at an understandable mark-up. Marbella beach is great to surf or watch surfers and take in the sunset. Never miss a sunset. And remember, it sets faster the closer you are to the equator. There are lots of other beaches sprinkled up and down the coast, but it’s nice to have such a secluded one to yourself. Morning yoga with Cecilia is also recommended. She is a skilled instructor who offers modifications which allow your yoga practice to balance the breath through each asana. Her singing voice is divine. Great hosts, great location. Pura Vida.

We loved this casita. Yoav and Cecilia were one of the nicest Airbnb hosts we have met, and we have certainly met plenty :) the drive through unpaved roads makes it all the better. We stayed here for a few nights after arriving to Liberia, and it was the perfect place to relax and start our coastal trip in the peninsula. I highly recommend taking yoga with Cecilia, and although we didn't have the chance to, I'm sure a surf class with Yoav would also be fantastic! Thanks for an incredible stay.

I loved the casita, yoga and area, waking up to the sounds of the jungle was an added bonus. The experience I had here was like no other. Yoav and Cecilia are amazing hosts, recommend a Thai massage from Cecilia. I will definitely be returning :)

Breathtakingly beautiful location! It's remote, but it's just a 5-10 minute drive from one of the most spectacular beaches on the planet. Huge waves for surfing at higher tide, but quite gentle at low tide, when it's better for bodysurfing and boogie-boarding. Yoav and Cecilia are ideal hosts--low-key, mellow, but always attentive. We will be returing!

My husband and I spent 3 nights here on our honeymoon. It was absolutely perfect! The casita had everything you'd need to cook in and had a great view! My favorite thing was the morning and nighttime visits from their dog, he was so cute and sweet! Yoav and Cecilia were both so kind and were really great and down to earth people, I wish we had more time to get to know them better! And I highly recommend taking yoga with Cecilia, there is something really calming about practicing yoga surrounded by the sound birds chirping. My reccomndendation to you is to get gas and buy food in Santa Cruz before getting to Marbella! But all together it was perfect and we had a really great time!

This is the 6th or 7th time for us to stay at the casita and the experience gets better every time. The location is perfect. The amenities and space is exactly as described. They continually make upgrades to enhance your comfort. We HIGHLY suggest booking thai messages with Cecilia or looking into their other room for rent, which is extremely cool!

My girlfriend and I had a great time in Marbella. Yoav and Cecilia's home was in a great location, off the beaten path and just a five minute drive from the beach. As such the beaches nearby were nearly empty and perfect for surfing as we learned during our lesson with Yoav. If you're into yoga and/or surfing and are looking for a relaxing stay, this is the place.

Yoav & Cecilia User ProfileYoav & Cecilia is a superhost.

We came to live in Marbella where we found the perfect mix of good surf and a natural environment to raise our two children. We love the simplicity that life offers in the rural parts of Costa Rica. For us it’s all about maintaining this simple and relaxed way of life and we enjoy sharing it with anyone who is interested.
