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! Aloha!!

Casa Kalana is a beautiful house located in the jungle right by Playa Negra, which is a perfect place for those that love to surf because it is only less than 10 minutes walk to the beautiful and quiet beach. Frank is an awesome and warm host. We arrived to the house couple hours…

MAHALO NUI LOA Emilie!! You and Robert were the best guests ever, but honestly, almost everyone who stays here echoes the same sentiments! So happy that you both took the time to enjoy so many other aspects to living here. 10 minutes walk? You must have been smelling all the flowers along the way!? Thank you so much for keeping the house and kitchen clean as its the number one task when you live out in the jungle. I really hope to see you both at Casa Kalana again soon!! Cheers, FK

The Big City gal with 4 teens in tow meets a slice of Costa Rica paradise tucked away on a beautiful parcel of jungle -- and all, with great success! Frank, your ears must still be ringing after our 5 day stay at Casa Kalana. The kids really enjoyed your energy, attentiveness, …

Thank you Michelle! It was a pleasure to help you and your family, thats the difference that we try to BE, helpful and proactive. We could probably go on patting each other on the back all day, but let's just know that we are both grateful for the experience and I look forward to hosting you and your family at any time in the future! Now you know you are going to want at least a couple of weeks next time! Aloha!!

Casa Kalana is in a beautiful rustic location on a large shady lot with lots of monkeys and birds who visit regularly. The walk to the beach is lovely and not too far, even with a longboard. Two of the bedrooms are air-conditioned, which we really appreciated in March as it was h…

Aloha Tom and family! MAHALO NUI LOA for your kind review of Casa Kalana! I really enjoyed meeting you all and spending the time we did! Our home is built out of EPS panels for year round comfort but during the hottest part of the year (March/April) the AC's do make the difference. For the benefit of those reading this, we will have the third bedroom completely finished this summer which will bring the whole house into the "modern" world. Six is our maximum with each bedroom containing a queen bed, but for the third bedroom we are considering two singles for more flexibility? Be prepared for more progress as with each visitor we upgrade the next experience! We will be honored to have your family among our return visitors! Next time, let's make sure that everyone gets to come!! Cheers, FK

Where do we even begin ... we had the privilege of staying at Casa Kalana for 6 weeks and it still wasn’t enough time! We loved the house - great kitchen area for entertaining, hammocks on the patio for that afternoon relaxation, large bedrooms with A/C and super comfortable beds…

Aloha Ryan and Jessica!! WOW, thank you so much for the lovely words and I know how much you both were enjoying your time there!! You were almost 'locals' by the time you left, everyone knew who you were! We had so many nice opportunities to get to know each other, and you were a great reminder of how everyone is a teacher, thank you so much for that! Now its time to make this an annual event and you can always use surfing as your excuse and Jessica can just focus on the monkeys. Congratulations on your marriage and we look forward to hosting you again!!

Frank is an awesome host - Let me tell you why. We arrived into San Jose later in the day and customs was unsusually busy. By the time we got to the rental car place and picked up our rental vehicle, it was about 11 pm. Frank had been communicating with us the entire day to ma…

Aloha Alex and Mahalo nui loa for the kind words and sentiments about Casa Kalana. I have been known to take as much as 20 minutes when going to the beach with my girls, they are easily distracted with all the wildlife here. We are glad the monkeys came to share breakfast with you too, that is always a wonderful moment. It was a pleasure to help you and your family maximize your precious vacation time and we look forward to hosting you, your family and friends again! Cheers, FK

This place is the bomb. Never knew the jungle in Costa Rica is so close to the beach. We had a family of horses come by in the mornings and evenings that let us pet them and a family of monkeys that were really funny and also a friendly neighborhood dog that was really nice come …
