CASANANDA FAQs:

-Will I need a car?
Yes, the home is in the gated community of the Valley of the Horses, situated approximately 6 miles (9.5km) from the beach –5.5 miles on a paved highway, and the last 1/2 mile on maintained gravel road into the coastal mountains. A car is recommended, though four-wheel drive is not necessary. There is a small grocery store in the village of Platanillo, about a mile away, but it would be a strenuous hike. There are also two fruit stands near the turn off for Valley of the Horses. For groceries, restaurants/bars, beaches, stores, etc. you would require transportation to the town of Dominical or San Isidro El General. Several taxi services are available. Plus, there are so many places around to explore!

Casananda is a heavenly place! We enjoyed being woken up by the howler monkeys in the morning, listening to a variety of birds at different times of the morning and falling asleep to the jungle sounds of the night. We hiked Nauyaca Falls, which is walking distance from the house,…

This place RULES. Honestly it’s hard to get out of the hammocks on the porch overlooking the jungle, even though there are tons of great things to do in the area. Special added touch in the form of a tiny house cat named Miss Kitty.

Beautiful oasis!!!! Wild horses, deer and howler monkeys on the property. The grounds are gorgeous with beautiful flowers and fruit trees. Took some getting used to not having air. Need some industrial fans out on the porch to enjoy the breezes and cut down on the bugs. Chandr…

True paradise. This place is the true Costa Rican experience. Wild animals, juicy fruit trees with the most amazing view you ever have seen. Best Airbnb I have ever been to by far.

I am a critical care nurse in Denver, CO. I grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont, where my parents still reside when they are not in Costa Rica or traveling. My parents, Abbe and Jerry, dreamed of this house in Costa Rica about 15 years ago. We have brought many people over …
