Interaction with Guests
We usually have little interaction with our guests, but are more than happy to give them advices about town, beaches and other things to do.
Located about a mile from the beach in Playa Hermosa's mountain side in a quiet, safe and peaceful neighborhood you'll have the perfect environment to relax and rest, release stress, meditate, read your best books, paint or even work on your online business in a totally relaxed atmosphere...this is what this cute little place has been designed for. Macaws, Toucans, Monkeys are seen very often from the deck and we have waterfalls within walking distance (rainy season) and so much more to discover....the real Costa Rica !
Located in the Central Pacific, this is the best place to travel from to see all the terrific sites COSTA RICA HAS TO OFFER! National parks, volcanoes and much more ! Have breakfast in a beachfront restaurant on the Pacific Ocean in the morning and have dinner in the Caribbean THE SAME DAY...THIS IS JUST AN AMAZING COUNTRY !

We had a lovely one week stay here. Oli was a great host -- friendly, easy to communicate with and readily available to answer all our questions. The studio is a wonderful space and super relaxing as it is tucked away in a remote area. Very quick drive to the beach and a 10 minute drive to Jaco.
The only problem I encountered was falling off the hammock one day when one end snapped off after a couple minutes of laying, so be cautious and check the knots before you get on!
Thanks again for everything Oli!!
Thanks Oli! We had a great week, perfect quiet spot to relax and chill out. Close to beach by car or bicycle, clean and cozy studio. Great for single or couple. We loved shopping at the local markets and cooking dinner each night. Oli was very welcoming and happy to help with any requests or offer his knowledge about the area. We hope to be back some time soon!
Notre séjour d'une semaine au studio d'Oli a été vraiment super! Parfait pour deux personnes, avec un grand lit, une magnifique salle de bain et une cuisine toute équipée (très appréciée pour pouvoir cuisiner à la maison). Oli a été très accueillant avec nous du début à la fin et toujours disponible pour répondre à nos questions. Son chat et son chien sont aussi vites devenus nos amis ;) Le studio est situé à une dizaine de minutes de vélo de Playa Hermosa, de plusieurs restaurants/bars et d'une épicerie. Les vélos mis à notre dispositions ont donc été très appréciés et fort utiles! Je recommande fortement cet endroit à tous ceux qui recherchent tranquillité et simplicité. Encore merci pour tout Oli!!!
Oli was easy to get ahold of and very accomadating. The apartment was very secure and fit 2 people nicely. Everything worked well...a/c, stove, hot shower, TV, bed etc etc. It is a bit of a drive to get to jaco; playa Hermosa is the closer better beach for surfing, lounging, and having fun.
The apartment was perfect and fulfilled all our needs for our 9 days stay. It is quiet, 5 minutes from Playa Hermosa, 10 minutes from Jaco, and we really enjoyed the fact that it was off the 34 road (one of the main in the country) which allows us to travel and visit easily.
Also we loved the fact that there are dog and cat :) they were so sweet!
Oli was there when we arrived and explained us everything, the recycling, wifi, what to see and what to do around the area...
We really enjoyed our stay! Pura Vida!
Great studio hidden away in the forest. Easy and quick bike ride to playa hermosa, the beach and restaurants.
If you want to relax and sleep away from the crowd, this is the place :)
All-you-need Surf Studio in very quiet and relaxing area. Big and clean bathroom and functional kitchen make the surf day at playa hermosa very comfortable.
Not directly at the beach but with the available beach cruiser bikes its easy to get there in 10min.
Oli was super friendly and very helpful in all our needs.
About the Host, Oli
Hi guys my name is Oli Originally from Brussels-Belgium, after traveling for a few years I ended up in Costa Rica in 2005. Felt in love with the country, bought a lot and built MY DREAM HOME. The studio is located below the main house where we live. It is the guest house but we decided to rent it out to have extra income to be able to travel more...;-) It is totally independant from the main house.
I m living here with my girlfriend and our two well behaved dogs. I am a consultant in Real Estate and she is a Civil and Environmental Engineer and yoga teacher and offers yoga/detox retreats. We are very happy here and we feel at home.
We are very quiet and respectful people. We expect the same from our guests.
We are very active during the day spending it surfing, practicing YOGA, hiking mountains or walking to waterfalls, cooking delicious vegetarian dishes and watching amazing sunset we have here. At night we are pretty tired from our daily activities and we are mellow.
Come play and stay with us.
