Hi, we're Beata and Sebastian and we've been in Costa Rica for couple years now. Before building this property, we did an extended road trip in Costa Rica. We fell in love with the warm sun, beautiful weather, amazing food, diverse topography, and wonderful people here. We'd be more than happy to help you with any trips or sightseeing that you may be planning.

The space
As big users of AirBnB for our personal travel, we know how great it is to be able to have a "home away from home." The property is separated into two segments, a downstairs and upstairs. You would be staying on the top floor;. The top floor has a modern private shower cabin, microwave, refrigerator, , small stove/burner, and George Foreman grill. It also has beautiful, panoramic views. The couch pull outs into a small bed, and the Bedroom is Updated for Double Bed From Bunk Beds that don't be confuse if you read all reviews about What kind of Beds is in Bedroom !!! . We upgrade House with Curtains in All Windows ,too !!.Our Guest many times suggested Us !!(check all updated photos ). On the right side of the home, there is an outdoor shower you could use to cool off or rinse after a day at the beach. The property also has a BEAUTIFUL front-yard garden that was completed just a few months ago with fruit trees, gorgeous assortment of flowers and is outlined by a beautiful natural shrub wall. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, look no further!
The Top Floor space is for Maximum 3 persons but If you want rent for more people You can make reservation with Lower Floor for additional Reservation Fee and is for more 4 peoples .Check different offer on AirbnB for Full House Reservation Option !!!

Where you’ll be

Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

We are located at Artola Estates in Sardinal, Guanacaste, which is about a 30 min drive from the Liberia International Airport and a 15 min drive from Playa de Coco and 5 min drive from Playa Matapalo . Its very Popular Beach because its 2 Big — RIU Hotels The Artola Estates community is an isolated and very spacious piece of land in between two high mountainous hills. Our home itself is near the far left of the community on an incline, which gives you an amazing view of the valley during sunrise and sunset. There are no homes on either side or across so you have a great deal of privacy and solitude. In the mornings, you could hear monkeys and all kind of birds far away talking to one another! It’s an absolutely surreal experience.


(1) Playa de Coco - this beach front area has a lively night scene thanks to many restaurants and bars, daytime snorkeling excursions, sand volleyball courts, and a beautiful natural "boardwalk" to take an evening stroll. We highly recommend you check out Zi Lounge for outdoor food, drinks and live music; it's our favorite place! If you're in town for any major holidays (e.g. New Years), they decorate the space and put on a great show. 
(2) Playa Blanca de Matapalo (aka, RIU hotel beach) - Located next to Rui hotel which is only a few minutes away, this beach is great if you want some quick and gorgeous beach time. Fun fact: Costa Rica prohibits private ownership of beaches so anyone is welcome to go there, including you :-) There are many different sections. If you drive past RIU Hotel you'll see two entrances to the beach if you're not part of the hotel. 10 mins from the ranch. 
(3) Playa Flamingo - Very laid-back, chill beach, most commonly used by locals. Not many people on the beach and very calm water. Perfect for relaxing and getting some sun and not running into many tourists. 40 mins from the ranch.
(4) Playa Tamarindo - The opposite of Playa Flamingo. Bustling with shops, activities, tourists, restaurants. Come here if you want to feel the energy and vibe of a Pacific beach town. Really popular surfing spot and you can also rent scuba gear. 1 hour from the ranch.
(5) Diamente Eco Adventure Park- Located just a kilometer before RIU Hotel, it features zip lines, an animal sanctuary, ATVs, beach activities, horseback riding, and a restaurant.

(6) Tio Leo Coffee Tour – Costa Rica is known for its delicious coffee. This is a great tour to see how local coffee is grown and harvested. 35 mins from the ranch.

(7) Monteverde “Cloud Forest” Reserve - Wind-sculpted elfin woodlands give way to rainforests where tall trees — filled with orchids, bromeliads, ferns, vines and mosses — rise high into the sky. Great day trip. 3 hours from ranch.

(8) Arenal Volcano - The biggest active volcano in the country. 2.5 hours from ranch
