Laura's place is set at the dege of Cabuya exactly as described, quiet with a little local traffic going slowly. Laura was not there but she has a wonderful agent Jenny, who takes care of everything and is welcoming and delightful company. She also runs and cooks at her Cafe Coyote within a short walk, a treat not to be missed. She is full of infomation about the area. We had a great time and would only make small suggestions like a few hooks for our mosquito net in the upstairs bedroom [ we always travel with one though it was not a big problem] and maybe some glasses instead of the metal drinking vessels, although Jenny lent us some. Justacross the road was the Howler Monkey hotel, a quiet low key place right on the shore with a swimming pool which we were offered use of.We loved the jungle garden, the howler monkeys, the birds, the terrace space, the iguanas and the washing machine was really good too and there was lots of drying line!We would go there again, loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking to the calls of the monkeys. Thank you Laura you are very well organised and give clear accurate instructions and infomation, good luck for the future.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay in mid-January as it was a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the nature around. The property is completely secluded in a forest behind the rustic seaside properties in a very quiet area along a tiny road. It is fairly close to the Cabo Blanco Reserve (which is closed Mondays and Tuesdays by the way) about 7km from Montezuma. There is a rocky beach close by which is not really suited to swimming but nice for a quiet sundowner with only a few locals around. We loved the outdoor terrace and the hammocks were nice as well. We saw quite an impressive number of birds without even leaving the property (including Parrot, Motmot, Hawk, Trogon, Cuckoo, Woodpecker, Magpie-Jay, Heron, Vulture) and some animals as well. We especially enjoyed being greeted by a troop of Howler Monkeys the first evening who passed through the trees overhead. After having stayed in a lot of Cabinas and small hotels while travelling around Costa Rica, it was just what we were looking for. The spacious open kitchen was well-equipped and we certainly appreciated the washing machine and the very good wifi. The communication with Laura was excellent. We didn't meet Laura but her local contact nearby was most helpful for a smooth check-in/out any questions we had. Everything was as indicated in the listing. We would happily stay there again and recommend Laura's place to other travellers.

This is a beautiful home in a very private location near the beach. I loved the open large kitchen to the garden and the large upstairs bedroom with a balcony open to the jungle. Thank you Laura for a beautiful Christmas in your home!

Rustic house very close to cabuya beach. Has washing machine which was very nice to have. Has a big king size bed up stairs but the mattress is rather firm. The local host at cafe coyote was great

We really loved this property, it is very beautiful and it was a very fun space to live in, especially how the kitchen opens up to the large dining room table which is outside and completely protected from rain. Some of the screens need patching or replacing to help with bugs while you are sleeping - but this was not a huge issue. The main thing is the kitchen supplies for cooking and knives needs a make over. We got creative with what we had, and we still managed to cook some epic meals. Such a beautiful corner of the world and such a beautiful home! Thank you for sharing this place with us!!

I am a hard working woman, since 1993 I live in Costa Rica. Have a daughter who was born in 1996. I run the weekly organic farmer's market in Escazú, San José and in the same town I also own a little organic Cafe called Buena Tierra.
I have this wonderful property in Cabuya de Cobano, really close to Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve. It used to be my home during the first 5 years I spent in this Country. Then we moved to the metropolitan area, where we had better working opportunities and where we could give a better standard education to our daughter.
I wish all the people who will rent my house a wonderful holiday in the jungle!!!
