Come stay in my beautiful, airy and open home. Enjoy the lovely yard and pool. A short walk to the beach, about 300 meters. Night life is within walking distance, as well as several beautiful beaches!

The Space

Located on a quiet street between Flamingo and Potrero, 300 meters from the beach, Casa Rana has two upstairs bedrooms, sleeping four. There is a shared bath and large balcony.

Rent one or both upstairs rooms for the time of your life! Leslie will serve a fabulous breakfast each morning, either by the pool or up on your balcony - your choice!

Concierge services are also available. Knowledgeable in all of the local places: restaurants, bars, night life, beaches, and adventures, you are guaranteed the time of your life.

Enjoy your own backyard jungle and pool!

Guest Access

Run of the house, including yard and pool.

Interaction with Guests

How much interaction do you need? I can help with recommendations and arrangements, and I will prepare you a fabulous breakfast each morning. In the evening, a snack and beverage will be made available to you before you head out for sunset! Otherwise, enjoy your space! The entire upstairs with private balcony is yours, and I tend to avoid the pool area when my guests are using it so they can enjoy it on their own.

The Neighborhood

I love my neighbors and my neighborhood! There are folks from ariound the world, so it is quite cosmopolitan, and cows and horses routinely graze up and down the roads. There is plenty of nightlife without having to get in the car, and you will feel welcomed.

The short walk to numerous beaches is like frosting on the cake!

Getting around

A bus goes along the main road, and bikes can be rented from Claudia down the road. Ecotrans runs a shuttle service from the airport in Liberia, and here are several car rental agencies in Potrero and Flamingo.

Other Things to Note

Many people traveling are concerned with safety. We do have a security system and a neighborhood security patrol. You can sleep soundly at Casa Rana!

  • We had a blast in Costa Rica. The roads here are rural, so come prepared for a drive. We rented a car in Liberia. The location of Casa Rana is right near the beach- we could walk there in 5 min. Leslie prepared us well for our stay-very responsive and helpful with any questions. We met her son, Brian, at the house. The house was great. A/c's in each area. We ate out and at the house 50/50. It rained every day for a while, but the mornings were fantastic! The humidity keeps things damp, but the A/C helps with this after a few mins. We surfed and played on several nearby beaches- all gorgeous! Brian was great to help us with local contacts from food to fun and even a nearby zip line tour. We took a day trip to a volcano with mud baths. Overall, we had an amazing time. Our 3 girls said they never wanted to leave! The WIFI and cable kept my husband connected to work while the pool kept the rest of us happy. And don't forget how safe we were with the security system. We went to get lost in a week of Costa Rican beauty and beaches. Casa Rana is definitely the area for that type of vacation! Thanks Brian, Jen, and Leslie for allowing us the pleasure of staying at Casa Rana!

  • Staying at Casa Rana was a great experience. The accommodations were very comfortable. The rooms were very cozy. The pool was really refreshing to dip in to cool off in the 34 degree temp. I even had a chance to do a work out with the weights available next to the pool. I would defiantly stay their again . Much better than the resorts I have stayed at before. Keep up the good work Leslie. The breakfasts we had were top of the line she does it right :)

I am retired and spending much of my time in Central America. I love to cook, so my two spare rooms are available. When you come to Costa Rica, you will have a beautiful breakfast each morning!! I love my adopted country, and, if you choose to stay with me, you will love it as well! When I am there I boogy board, bike ride, do yoga and sea kayak. As my guest you are welcome to use my equipment during your stay. I love to cook, and host pizza/movie night every other week in my home.
