The swiss robinson's house, hidden in a big private garden in the center of the village, 700mts from the Playa Negra. A place to relax and the perfect base to discover the area.
Sleeps for 6 people, 3 more people can rent the cabina next door.

The space

Very nice tropical wood house, 3 floors, located in the middle of nature, calm 7000sq mts private garden, the magnificent Playa Negra is at 700mts with his surf spot and his unforgettable sunset. Center of the village is at 300mts. This one is located 20kms south of Tamarindo and 27kms west of Santa Cruz, Guanacaste. Playa Avellanas is only 3kms north. To have fun in the waves, sharing a beer for the sunset with the local community, observe the birds, iguanas, monos monkeys and nature, riding horses or bike trekking. Also a good base for visiting the Nicoya Peninsula and its many beaches and mountains.
1st floor: Big independant bedroom (2-3 people if a kid ), bathroom with toilets, private terrace, can be rented independantly of the house, Laundry.
2nd floor: Open living room with kitchen, 1 bedroom for 2, bathroom, toilets.
3rd floor: Attic bedroom, 2 to 3 people.
The house is rented minimum for 2 days and first price is 75$ from 1 to 3 people, after 3, there is a cost of 25$ for each extra people.
We also have a cabina for 2 people or 2 and 1 kid to rent, just go on "Playa Negra Tropical Paradise Cabin".
Tour advices and good plans, where to rent a car, hire a surf teacher, a horse or doing a bike trekking or a canopy tour, and more hidden places as the good places to eat and have a drink.
About young children: Parents of young children should evaluate whether the height of the House is safe and appropriate for their children.There are railings around the balcony and stairs but a determined child could climb over them and fall or a very small child could crawl through the spaces in the railing. Every child is individual and their parents must use their best judgment and assume any risk. Roads are bad in costa Rica and especially around Tamarindo. It can take you at least one hour to do Playa Negra-Tamarindo in case of rains, our district has only dirt roads, from Paraiso to Tamarindo (they are know remodeling the road, yes!). We strongly recommend to rent a car to be free of moving to not depend of some expensive taxis. After Paraiso and Tamarindo, public transport is non-existent.. Even if the place has all modern conveniences, it is surrounded with the wild, and more recommended for people looking for this kind of tourism.

This is the second time I've returned to Yvan's place. It was so flawless the first time, I saw no reason to search for a different place. Yvan and his family are great, friendly folks that went over the top to accommodate us. The place is perfect for a relaxing time. We gathered around the exposed kitchen and table each night. beautiful property. so easy to let the days melt away. We were there to surf, the location is a quick drive to playa negra and Avellanas. September is a great time to visit! Beaches are empty and the roads aren't dusty! Was sad we had to leave! Thanks for everything Yvan! See you soon hermano!

Yvan was the perfect host and the house was amazing. My two siblings and I had a great time. The house was spacious and very clean. Also it was well-equipped with cooking supplies. As expected, there were some bugs but they were not bad at all. We sprayed ourselves with bug spray and were fine. Yvan and his family live on the same property, which was nice to ask directions/recommendations of activities. They were so friendly and welcoming. Be sure to buy some wine from Yvan while you're visiting! By the house we ate at La Vida Buena and Jalapeño, both were excellent. I highly recommend renting a 4x4 to get around. We went to one of the national parks and a few beaches farther away. This house is perfect for a peaceful getaway! We will definitely be back.

Yvan's directions were perfect, we drove from Liberia to the house in the dark without a wrong turn, woke up to howler monkeys announcing the dawn of a new day. We did a nature walk every morning early, bring your binoculars, the birds are fantastic! The house is on a dead end loop of a road surrounded by forest. My wife and three boys, (aged from 7 to 11), loved it. Slept with doors open, no screen and no bugs to speak of....a nice surprise. Close to the beach, not busy, locals, surfers and a few families like ours.

Our stay at Play Negra was wonderful. Yvan was there to greet us when we arrived. The place was very clean and comfortable, and he gave us a run-down of what was around the area and most importantly, how to get to the beach quickly. We had a few problems with the water and electricity due to an extremely windy night, but Yvan made sure they got fixed as soon as possible. Great spot to take a relaxing trip.

Yvan and his family were wonderful hosts during our 2 night stay at the Tropical Paradise home in Playa Negra. The picturesque house was even more beautiful than described: 3 fully-furnished floors, top floor with cutout window to view the countless stars, complete kitchen to prepare meals and updated bathroom fixtures with plenty of hot water. Yvan provided great beach and dining recommendations which we used throughout the trip. Our stay in the house was the perfect ending to our amazing Costa Rican vacation. Quiet Playa Negra and the house were just as described - highly recommended!
