Casa Kalana is a spacious 3 bdrm home, with shared bathroom, large contemporary kitchen and bar, enormous sky deck for amazing star gazing. Sleep to the sound of the wind and the sea, and awaken to monkeys and song birds! Come ALIVE at Casa Kalana!
Casa Kalana is a quaint, contemporary home situated on one acre in the middle of one of the last pieces of untouched coastal forest. It is full of monkeys, tropical birds, gardens and assorted wildlife. A surfers dream house with a two minute walk to one of the best breaks in all of Latin America! We rent by the week, month or long term so drop us a line if you are interested. Telephone, and Internet, but sorry, no traditional TV available, A break from TV is really good for you! ;)
There are two bedrooms adjoining each other through a common bath/shower. Please knock before entering is a basic rule. Upstairs is a large terrace for sunbathing and fantastic star gazing at night.
Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave the house when others are renting, 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 a startup property, and have a had a lot of success with friends and look to the future, and would welcome your participation in building up Casa Kalana and Playa Negra in general. If you have any questions, please let me know how to be of better service. Cheers, FK
Playa Negra is so much more than just a surfing beach, there are empty roads for an early morning or late evening run or walk. Horses pass here daily for those interested, and the best canopy lines are a 10 minute taxi drive away. We are residential, but there are restaurants and stores within walking distance, but a rental car greatly expands your options if you are here more than a week.
Bus travel is daily into Santa Cruz, but with a rental car, you can be there and back with your shopping by the time the bus arrives in Santa Cruz. A real time saver when you are on vacation. You can also rent bicycles here, but a car is always preferred.
Other Things to Note
Costa Rica has a 13% rental tax which must be paid by the guests in CASH at the time of check in. We also will send you a rental agreement after your booking with AirBnB has been confirmed.
Never allow people you meet on the beach into Casa Kalana. You will be sadly surprised how many robberies occur from your new "friends". While we have been very fortunate, most of our beachfront neighbors have not.
Our stay at Casa Kalana was better than expected. Frank was extremely helpful in getting us to our location. The roads are unmarked but most of the locals know him which can be really helpful in the instance that it is dark or cell service is spotty when you arrive.
The home is beautiful and full of comfortable features. You will feel safe and pleased that you made the decision to stay here.
The beach is a short walk away as well as a small town with some great restaurants.
Get ready to experience a great time!
We had a great stay at Frank's Casa!It is beautiful, clean, close to playa negra and surrounded by wildlife. Frank is a great host who cared about us and even helped us to get our kindle back which we forgot in the casa. Thanks for that, a great stay and lovely time! Hope to see you soon..
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 'animal 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
