Casa Kalana is a spacious and comfortable home blending the authentic Costa Rican experience with an indoor/outdoor ambience. Our guests have proudly described us as a "hidden paradise". Our location is one of the most beautiful properties in Playa Negra, just steps to the ocean filled with monkeys, tropical birds and assorted wildlife which are a daily treat. Come and relax to the sounds of the crashing waves and the gentle tropical breeze. Awaken to the howler monkeys and song birds!
Casa Kalana is a unique contemporary home situated on one acre in the middle of one of the last pieces of untouched coastal jungle. Our main feature is our 40' undersea 3D sculpture mural, beautiful original artwork and indigenous masks fashioned by the Boruca Indians and Guaitil pottery. The property is home to monkeys, tropical birds, lush gardens and assorted wildlife. A surfers dream house with a three minute walk to one of the best breaks in all of Latin America! We have local telephone and WiFi available. We can organize all your special requirements such as a private chef, pre-stocked groceries, fresh organic meats, fruits and vegetables, the best fresh baked breads, horseback tours, zip-lines and so much more! Just ask!
There are two queen size bedrooms adjoining each other through a common bath/shower. Please knock before entering is a basic rule. The Master bedroom currently has a fold out futon accommodating two people. Upstairs is a large terrace for sunbathing and fantastic star gazing at night (0nly open in dry season Dec - May) There is a futon sofa in the living area to accommodate up to 2 more persons. For any other questions, please send them to us, we are happy to help you in any way!
Interaction with guests
Guests let me know how much interaction they need, but I am not more than 10 minutes away should anything arise. It is the jungle here, and things do happen, mostly nature. We are long time residents here and have enjoyed hosting guests who have left as friends. We work hard to insure your valuable vacation time is stress free and relaxing and we are honored that you would consider Casa Kalana and Playa Negra. If you have any questions, please let me know how to be of service. Mahalo, Frank Kalana
Other things to note
We have A/C in the Master Bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms, we will install the 3rd bedroom in time for the Christmas/New Years 2018. Thank you for your continued support of Casa Kalana!
Please do NOT buy Single Use Plastics!! We provide safe, clean water to all of our guests, do not buy BOTTLED WATER!!! We have reusable bottles in the house. There is too much plastic in the world, and it does end up on our beaches when people are careless.
Leave the house as clean as you entered. RINSE ALL SAND OFF IN THE OUTSIDE SHOWER!! Do not take towels to the beach, they are for showering purposes only. Never allow people you meet on the beach into Casa Kalana. You would be surprised how many robberies occur from your new "friends". While we have been very fortunate, some of our beachfront neighbors have not. Smoking is permitted outside and please use the ashtrays and throw away your butts as the wind can easily empty an unattended ashtray.
Aloha Friends, we are a family who divides our time between the UK and Costa Rica. Casa Kalana is a small startup located just 250 yards from Playa Negra, the main attraction for surfers around the world. Even if your interest tends to the less extreme, wildlife and nature are in endless supply here, and have grown to find harmony with Casa Kalana, as we have kept our property 'nature friendly' which provides us with a daily assortment of interesting, but harmless variety of life. Come and visit Casa Kalana and Playa Negra! Thank you for your support!! Mahalo, Frank
