The Space

Private small house-cabin half a mile from the beach. 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room-kitchen, outdoor area, private parking.
Perfect for a couple or 2 friends.
Right in the heart of the very small village of "Los Pargos", more known as Playa Negra, but isolated from noise by 2 rivulets and very tall trees.
5-10 minutes walking away from some shops and good restaurants
"World-class" surfing in the area, not only Playa negra, but many other spots.
Amazing wildlife, both on land and sea. turtles, colorful fish, whales, iguanas, monkees at the door, armadillos, tropical birds...

Playa Negra is a beautiful dark-sand beach famous in the surfing community for its right-hand barrel waves. The beach lays on the Pacific coast in Costa Rica's hot province of Guanacaste. Its location sits in close proximity to other popular beach breaks including "Little Hawaii" on Playa Avellanas, a short 10-minute drive away.
Playa Negra is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from the town of Liberia and its international airport. The drive from San Jose takes 4-5 hours crossing the Tempisque Bridge. Another option for travel from San Jose is to take a domestic flight to the popular tourist destination of Tamarindo, which is approximately a 35-minute drive away (perhaps a slightly longer drive in the rainy season.) Daily public buses leave from Santa Cruz, but a taxi or rental car is recommended. Santa Cruz also has the last available gas station in the area. After Santa Cruz, the road passes through Paraiso, a small community 4km from Playa Negra.

Guest Access

House, parking, garden.

Interaction with Guests

My housekeeper Jeremy will help you out with whatever is needed. he lives in next house, about 200 yards away.

The Neighborhood

Quiet, very quiet... yet right in the center of town, 5 minute walking to everywhere. Monkeys don't know about it and might wake you up in the morning :)
2 small grocery shops right by, so that's fine.

Getting Around

Public transportation is not the best...and this is an understatement. Bus twice a day to Santa Cruz, and it will take forever. But if you want to experience the real Costa Rica jump on it ! Otherwise, walk, run, rent a bycicle, hitch a ride....

Other Things to Note

Water is scarce in all of Guanacaste (Northwestern Costa Rica) so please use moderately. specially in the months of March, April and June...

House Rules

Take care of the property and enjoy as much as possible! Catch a good wave for me !

No pets at all. Two reasons: I have had problems with allergies before, and they will bother, attack and even kill my other "pets" (Iguanas mainly, they are on a loosing battle with dogs...monkeys don't like to be barked at either...)
