  • ALYA is not a typical tourist Airbnb destination. It’s a peaceful mountain top yoga retreat with many activities offered for finding oneself and friendships. The location is a few hours drive from the Liberia airport with a good stretch of washboard/rutted roads so follow Shlomo’s advise and get a 4X4 vehicle! Jungle surroundings were fascinating, the cabin basic but spacious and other international guests very happy, accepting, inclusive, gentle souls. Can bring own food to cook or eat with the group for additional nominal cost. There are small beach towns not a far drive away with optional cove calm waters or surfers waves and not crowded!

  • The place is magical

    Anya2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • It is a lovely place surrounded by nature. The stars shine amazing at night and it is cozy by day. Cooking is the best and go out to explore the beaches by car.

    Rolando2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place to get away from the busyness of life. My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and have tons of memories that will last a lifetime.

    Alyssa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful, is far into the mountains but the vibe is awesome, the bungalow had everything needed. You can visit a couple of beaches near that are gorgeous. I will recommend this place if you want to disconnect from the city

    Natalia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Alya exceeded our every expectation. Shlomo wasn’t just a friendly host, he made lots of extra effort to make our stay exceptional. Having yoga available to us each morning, followed by a delicious breakfast made by a skilled local cook, helped us start every day well. Shlomo has designed Alya to ensure guests are living in the heart of the jungle- with close access to monkeys, amazing insects and plants- while still feeling really comfortable and safe. It’s a hard place to leave. We will certainly re visit.

    Gemma2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely amazing if you love nature and want an authentic Costa Rican beach experience. Shlomo's property is gorgeous, and he was very available to answer questions and provide tips on the best beaches and restaurants. The road to San Juanillo/Nosara is not paved, so renting a 4x4 is definitely the best way to go. The casitas are all open air (i.e. no AC), but the shade and a fan provide sufficient ventilation to prevent it from getting too hot. We were very comfortable sleeping at night. Bring earplugs if you are hypersensitive to noises--here, as everywhere in this area, there are howler monkeys that can make a ruckus. There IS hot water and all the amenities you need to be comfortable. The closest beach is about a ten minute drive, and there is a super on the way that sells groceries. The casitas are fully equipped to make a meal if you want to save some money, but the breakfast at the cafe is fantastic. We were sad to leave and would absolutely stay here again.

  • Shlomo’s retreat is a jungle sanctuary, a place to disconnect a bit and get in touch with nature and the beauty of Costa Rica!

    Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Paradise Point is private, luxurious and cozy, located on a scenic hillside with a Pacific ocean view. The house is tucked in a beautiful forest with breathtaking sunsets and wildlife, and it is fully equipped with all the amenities for comfort seeking travelers. Watch the visiting butterflies and hummingbirds that come to our garden daily and fall asleep to the sound of crickets and ocean waves crashing. Perfect for families, romantic getaways, small retreats, surfers and adventure seekers.
    Located only 10 minutes from the world famous Ostional turtle nesting site where thousands of turtles nest each year. Be in wonder as you witness the mamas lay their eggs or even better when the little ones make their way back to ocean. Paradise Point is pure luxury and fully equipped with modern appliances including a Vitamix, dishwasher, BBQ, air conditioning in all rooms, high speed internet and a blue-tooth speaker for dancing or just to enjoy while you are floating in the pool. There is also an outdoor shower in the gardens so you can enjoy the hummingbirds and butterflies while while being refreshed. Beach towels, pool toys and some beach chairs are provided as well as books, toys, a playpen/crib, lego and games for kids and adults. Luxurious king size beds, a large and super cozy couch, and relaxing poolside loungers and hammock. There is a multi-purpose roof for yoga and stargazing and it is very bright and spacious with high ceilings and dimmer switches in every room for any mood. There is also an outdoor fire-pit beside the pool so you can roast marshmallows after you watch the beautiful sun go down over the ocean. This house also includes a completely separate studio beautifully decorated with a queen size bed and 2 bunk beds and it's own bathroom. Don't worry, we never rent the studio out separately so you will always have your privacy. (See pricing details for studio below) This house can sleep 6 adults and or children and an additional 4 people in the studio. Please note *If you are a group of 6 adults, you will want to consider that although the house sleeps 6 people, 2 are bunkbeds in a shared room. If you want privacy, you will want to contact the host to reserve the studio as these keys are only given upon booking the additional accommodation. Additional cleaning services can also be arranged for longer stays. Private chef and catering service available for small and large groups upon availability For those of you who would like to book luxury and need some time to budget for it, Airbnb has just released a new feature called Pay Less Up Front, where you only pay for 50% of the booking at first and the rest on arrival. This helps guests to plan their vacations ahead of time and pick the accommodation they truly desire! This is our home and sanctuary and it was created with love and the intention of sharing it with others so that they may also experience the healing connection of nature, solitude, the spiritual energy of the space and of course lots of joy and pleasure. If your intention is to getaway and party, our home IS NOT the space for you but there are many options you can check out in the tourist town of Nosara, we wish you the best of luck in your search. *Please note that you will need a 4x4 vehicle to access the property*
    This property has both privacy and convenience. Located only 10 minutes away from the famous Ostional Wildlife Turtle Beach and Refuge as well as top notch surfing. Drive 15 minutes and you will find cafes and 2 more beaches in San Juanillo and only 25 mins away is the main tourist town of Nosara. You will find everything you need a short driving distance away, from cafes and restaurants, shopping, world renowned surfing, yoga, adventure sports, fishing and more. After a day of sightseeing or adventure you will be happy to relax and enjoy the sunset on the terrace. Perhaps you may not even want to leave, as it is so peaceful here and you have everything you need. Please note that this is Costa Rica and while full of natural beauty and adventure, the infrastructure is not the same level here that you can expect in 1st world countries. Power outages (normally very short), bumpy roads and no internet or mobile access in some areas in Costa Rica should be anticipated.
  • Great place in the jungle! Amazing views of the ocean. The house itself is very nice and spacious. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals as well as a nice outdoor grill. The pool is beautiful and very large. 4 wheel drive is required but getting around is easy once you get a lay of the land. The host has a really good online house manual with lots of great information. Some recommended activities: - Miss Sky Canopy Tour Zip Lining - Fishing Nosara Charter Fishing (The Explorer was a great boat with an awesome crew) Our favorite beaches: - Playa Barrigona (a bit of a drive but worth it) - Playa San Juanillo (very close and good for snorkeling) One tip - If coming from Liberia, make sure you take the route through Santa Cruz. I highly recommend Paradise Point for anyone looking for adventure or simply to relax on the beaches or at the pool.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Amy's place. The house had everything needed to accommodate our stay and the views were absolutely beautiful! We highly recommend staying here in the future!

    Christian And Sujene2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend staying here. We had such an amazing experience! The views are absolutely beautiful and the house has everything to accommodate. Amy was a wonderful host and was extremely responsive and helpful with everything that we needed. We definitely would come here again!

    Christian And Sujene2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. Can’t say enough good about it! Wish we were there longer.

    Daniel2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best part of our costa rica trip! Amazing view at the top and a really great place to be. The infinity pool was great!

    Suzana2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Paradise Point was amazing. We enjoyed the privacy and beauty of Amy's house for two weeks. At times we used day trips by car to access local beaches, restaurants, and other "jungle" activities. On the other hand, we saw an amazing diversity of wild life, birds and insects, and enjoyed the company of our 3 children and parents while just sitting around the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the jungle and ocean. If your looking for your own private slice of Paradise, and don't mind driving 10-30 mins. to access other activities, I would highly recommend Amy's place. We would go stay there again in a heart beat!

    Rob2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Super house! Exceptional view

    Johann2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The photos are accurate, and it will take your breath away. It’s well stocked, shows attention to detail, and has amazing views of the sunset. You’ll be ever surprised by the critters that also show up to enjoy it.

  • the house was exactly how it was shown, actually way better in person. Danielle was such a huge help to us. any question we had she always had an answer, we were able to leave the villa and visit Tamarindo using the shuttle bus they offered. it was fun and although everything with corona virus was going on, the restaurants were very clean and cautious. we landed in Liberia and we were 2 hours away. we went to the market before to stock up our fridge. towards the end we needed to stock up on food and danielle was able to get us everything we put on the list. all rooms have bathrooms and full body mirrors which was amazing. the view from the rooms are to die for. definitely a check off my bucket list!

    Maria2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • I will forever remember this mansion. Spent my 40th birthday here as part one for 5 days with a group of 10! It was exceeded my expectations by far! The drive to mansion from airport at night was a bit scary but we came prepared and handled the hike. Every room was detailed with the very best and made us feel like rock stars! Yes there were bugs but we handle it and the maids cleaned up after us which help us when it came to cooking! Sunsets were endless from any view in mansion. My most favorite part was the outdoor shower in my room as I watched sunrise, AMAZING!!! Would definitely recommend this Airbnb.

    Pamela2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to be blown away, this is the place to stay! As soon as we walked onto this property we could not believe how beautiful it was. To have an infinity pool overlooking miles of forest and the ocean--and to have that view from your bedrooms and even your showers--unbelievable! Plus, we watched the sunset over the ocean every night followed by a canopy of stars filling the sky when it got dark. The home itself is not only beautiful but also very comfortable and super spacious. The walls are all sliding glass doors which can give full views outside when opened. We had 6 adults and 4 small children and it was perfect. The pool combined a hot tub and different areas where even our 2 year old could roam safely. The staff is wonderful. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and helped us set up the logistics of our trip so that everything worked out perfectly. They also worked with us during the week of the stay. Thank you for the best family vacation we've ever had!

  • This place is the most amazing stays I ever had! Roads are difficult but drive is way worth it. House is amazing and better than I could ever imagine. My onsite manager was helpful and always responsive. The house made my experience amazing and perfect for my bachelorette plans for my cousin. I highly recommend this place to anyone !

    Nathalie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the villa with 6 people for a family trip and it was amazing. The trip to the house from Liberia was no joke, Costa Rica has a lot of unpaved, rocky and hilly terrain. You definitely need a 4x4 or pay for a car service to get you there. But we weren’t surprised by this as the listing and reviews made it very clear. Once we drove the path a few times we got more comfortable. Once we arrived to the house we were blown away by the view and how spacious it was. We especially loved the pool and the bedrooms. We also got to see plenty of monkey which was really exciting for us! The only feedback I can give would be around communication about things to expect while in Costa Rica. We reached out to the manager a few times and she got back to us instantly (even in the middle of the night) so that made things a lot better. But for example one night before a rain storm a swarm of army ants took over the patio and started coming in to the kitchen. We didn’t know what to do so security came in and helped us clean them up but they were still coming in. Upon some research we learned that this is a normal occurrence in Costa Rica but these aren’t normal ants- they come in for an hour or so and then the entire swarm disappears. It did not bother us at all, but if we knew that beforehand we would not have had any concerns. Overall our stay at the villa was perfect and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic but luxurious stay in Costa Rica, we will definitely be back!

    Catherine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is the review I wish other travellers could have wrote: the closets airpot to the villa is Liberia airport. it is 2 hours drive from the airpot to the villa. on your way home from the airpot. I recommend to buy your groceries from Walmart. Walmart is 14 mins away from the airport. Its cheaper from anywhere else and you can find literally anything. We shopped a lot from locals and chain super markets and we all agreed our best move was buy most of our things from Walmart. We used Waze to go to the villa (every single blogs and articles said Waze is the best way to get around in Costa Rica) but at least for us Google was the best. Specially getting to the Villa. We used Waze and we were lost to the point our concierge Dani sent us the guard to find us (shout out to Dani for everything she has done for us, from communication, shopping, tips etc.) there is a reason you must have 4x4 vehicle. after 1h and 15m you will go off road. it's not asphalt so it's a bit rocky. the last 17 mins it's getting very rocky. when we were going to the villa it was after sun set so it was dark and I panicked a bit but when you drive in the morning you can see it's really beautiful. getting to the villa is the most adventures thing I have ever done and I'm not that adventurous lol. you must embrace it if you wanna enjoy your vacation. I didn't at first but after the day or 2 it became one of the fun thing I have ever done. At the end you know why this Villa has this amazing view and as other people said, it worth the drive. You need to follow the 'Emerald Woods' road sings and they are really small compare to the city so you need to be aware of your surrounding. Be aware of potholes, animals, birds, cows and people if you are driving at nights. You are in Costa Rica, so you will see a lot of animals and specially bugs. jaunt grasshoppers, spiders in so many sizes, monkeys, humming birds, butterflies, lizard and so much more. some of them might end up in your room because you left the door open. one tip, always close your luggage. you will have 24 hours guard at the villa. we felt so safe knowing someone is there 24 hours if something goes wrong. we also booked their guest house which is separate from the main house and my guest felt safe every time he went for a walk to go to his house. The house was super clean, fully equipped kitchen. we had everything we needed. from making coffee, making smoothie, making pancakes, cook dinner to use dishwashers. they also had laundry rooms but we didn't use that. the house itself is magical. it felt like we were living in one of those Hollywood mansions you see on TV. the staff were super nice. they all spoke Spanish so if we needed to communicate we used google translate. our concierge spoke perfect English so if you need anything you can ask them. we had situations that we didn't understand the language and we were lost and we needed help, so I called Dani and she talked to them and sort things out for us. you don't know how helpful they are till you ask for their helps. Dani was one of the kindest and helpful people that I had the pleasure to deal with. Power-outage is common in Costa Rica, when we got to the Villa there was no power so we had our tour in the dark which was super fun and one more in the middle of the day. they never last more than 1 and half hour. I wish Toronto could have been like that. lol if you get power outage don't panic and just enjoy it. you are on a vacation in the most beautiful country in the most beautiful villa. nothing should ruin that for you. They clean the pool every single day because of the tree close to the pool that drops leafs. every morning one or two people come to the house to take out trash from the kitchen and washrooms. we appreciate it a lot as we were group of 8. Overall I can't say thank you enough. I got so many compliment from my party and people who were looking out photos. the house is exactly like these photos and in my opinion is much nicer. be mindful of your environment and clean after yourself. I will definitely come back to this country and this Villa

  • So amazing!

    Jon-Luc2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing and the view is incredible. The hospitality was hands down one of the best. I would totally go again and recommend this place to everybody. I do recommend for sure to go on a 4x4 car because the road is not in the best condition as the house is at the very top of a mountain but totally worth it once you get there.

    Kaleb2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This bungalow is perfect for a getaway for two people who want to be right by breathtaking beaches, have an actual Costa Rica experience, and a private spot with an amazing view. I loved the zen vibe of the place with all of its little touches. The outdoor shower was a great way to end every day after the beach. The roads around the area are.. an experience. Definitely get a 4x4 rental so you can explore the towns around the area more comfortably. I’m so glad we did. The towns have so much charm and you may have to drive around a bit to find anything and everything. Visit as many beaches as you can. Each is completely different from the last. The only GPS App that works there is Waze, so make sure you have that ready to go upon arrival. I miss the place already. Thank you for the incredible experience and hospitality.

  • This quiet, secluded place is ideal for watching the amazing sunsets and is not far from some spectacular beaches. Limes from the tree in the yard, a very comfortable hammock, a lovely outdoor shower, and a comfortable bed. We couldn’t have asked for more.

  • wow wow wow! paradise on earth...enough said. there are no words to descripe this place...amazing, mindblown, beautiful, just wow.

    Lucien2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible views, the wildlife is amazing!! Such a perfect getaway for two. Thank you Steven!

    Terese2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Stevie made everything so easy for us in every way. Loved the outdoor shower, loved the privacy while still being so close to Nosara, Guiones beach, San Juanillo horseback riding, Canopy tour, fishing and turtle watching, everything we wished for and more! I've been in airbnb's all over the world and Stevie was and is easily the best host I've ever had.

    Ryan2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Steven was very responsive to all our questions and helpful with getting to know the area and giving recommendations for where to go and what to see. The house was beautiful and we would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone looking to stay in the San Juanillo area!

    Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Beautiful Bali style Villa in gated nature community! Large private pool! Only minutes to many unspoiled swimming beaches & great surfing and close to the famous Ostional turtle reserve. 10 miles from Nosara airport. Nearest restaurant/store 2 miles, San Juanillo. A great place for total relaxation. Nature-Peace-Privacy!
    This Balinese style villa is made of beautiful Benkarai wood. Large windows offer great views of the surrounding natural beauty. Beautiful ceiling fans throughout with dimmable lighting create a wonderful atmosphere. The kitchen is well equipped and has a large fridge with ice-maker. There is a safe room and an alarm system.The high ceilings make the villa always cool and comfortable. Many birds species, howler monkeys, iguanas and butterflies are your daily visitors.
  • We felt very comfortable (2 adults, 2 children). The pool is great, the house is very lovingly and stylishly furnished. You are right in the jungle, so you shouldn't be afraid of animals. But we always felt safe. A little paradise in Costa Rica!

    Christoph2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Was our second stay in this mountain- and this second house was just amazing. With the pool, monkeys, jungle all around us - was a beautiful 3 months that we will remember all the rest of our life. Stevie is always there to help and responding fast. Nosara is very close (35 min) and we made all our groceries there. A lot of vegan options!

    Julie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was the most romantic and relaxing place to stay. We LOVED the pool. We did not expect to really utilize the kitchen but it was so nice up in the privacy of our own little jungle that we rarely went out to eat. There is a small grocery store in San Juanillo that literally has everything you need but if you wanted something a little bigger the grocery store in Nosara was perfect. The places to eat in San Juanillo had great food, as well as Ostional and Nosara. Absolutely happy we had a 4 wheel drive. We did need that. The air conditioned bedrooms were fantastic and we slept great. The great room gets a little warm but we spent most of our time outdoors. We would definitely book this again and our host, Steven was great with giving us information and getting back to us with our questions. WE LOVED IT!!!!!

    Ellen2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our family - 2 adults, 3 kids under 6 - rented this home for 4 weeks in August 2019. The host, Steven, is literally without peer, he was truly exceptional. Responsive, incredible local knowledge and each time we utilized one of his contacts for an experience it was phenomenal. The jungle surrounds were amazing, the howler monkeys and other wild life were literally hanging in the trees around the pool ~5 times during our stay and we could hear them every day. The pool is big, warm and just a magical setting with the jungle as the backdrop. The bedrooms are air conditioned and that made sleeping comfortable. The main room gets hot in the afternoons which normally doesn't matter as you can jump in the magnificent pool and cool off but we struggled a little somedays when we had the kids inside during an afternoon. The home was super family friendly, the nature reserve the home is within is a really special place and this was just the secluded experience we wanted. Our kids loved the jungle experience, loved the animals that were coming and going and surrounded us. We (the adults) were definitely acclimatizing to the bugs and animals, but you know that this is part of the experience in this region. The offset is there are incredible beaches for kids playing (San Juanillo), surfing/body boarding (Playa Guiones & others), watching turtles (Ostinal), etc. all within 5-30 mins drive. It is a wonderful home in a magical location.

    Whitney2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent lodging option, very close to the beaches. Very secure access and excellent privacy.

    Leonel2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place!!

    Tania2019-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • We cannot say enough about how happy we were with Steven's warm hospitality, he met us personally in the nearby village of San Juanillo to show us the way to our home away from home. This house is even better than the pictures and was perfect for our family of three. The pool is sublime. This home is located in a tranquil wooded paradise where we could hear a chorus of birds and Howler Monkeys! We enjoyed the company of a curious Coati too!! We whole-heartedly recommend Steven as a host for anyone traveling to this area, he described the beach access from San Juanillo and went out of his way to help with setting up a zip line ride for us, and had a great contact for horseback riding. Please consider renting a 4x4 for travel on the rustic roads.

    Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Marbella is a small village in a rural area located close to one of the most consistent surf spots on the pacific coast of Costa Rica. Staying here you will get a truly authentic Costa Rican experience. The property is located on the hills around Marbella surrounded by beautiful nature. 2.5km from the beach and the village. It consists of our home, 2 rental units and yoga studio where we offer yoga, barre lessons, Thai massage and other activities. Liberia International airport is 90km away.
    The casita is a studio apartment located close to our home yet is private. It sleeps 3 people. It has a queen size bed and a single bed. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, hot water and ceiling fan.
    What we love about this area is that it’s off the beaten path and it’s not very developed. There are many beautiful beaches and a few small villages on the coast located a few km from one another. There are a few small grocery shops and restaurants in the area for your convenience. The Wildlife Refuge of Ostional is one of the World's most important nesting sites for Olive Ridley Sea Turtles is 15km away. For more activities and shopping possibilities, Nosara – Playa Guiones and their famous zip line tour are 30km away and the touristic beach town of Tamarindo is an hour drive away. Playa Negra, which also offers great waves, is 30 minutes away.
  • Marbella is a small off beat town with an amazing beach. If you are looking for a relaxing spot to enjoy local life and catch some great waves this is that spot for you. Yoav is super responsive and helped us get exactly where we needed to be & what to look for and expect. It’s small, quaint, and charming. Wild life right out your door monkeys, birds, iguanas, and their dogs & cat came down to us every morning too! The tiki bar at the beach had amazing food after a long surf sesh & Jako the owner of the surf school hooked me up with a board. Nothing but praise to Yoav who made us feel welcomed and at home was an amazing host! Highly recommended!

    Alex2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place awesome guy

    Peter2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Yoav's little casita is the perfect place off the beaten track, in the middle of the jungle, five minutes from the most wonderful lonely beach. There are sweet little puppies, cats, monkeys, humming birds and lizards, to name just a few. Yoav is a very considerate host, always available and knowledgeable. A great guy offering a great place!

    Christoph2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully secluded location, really a part of nature! Definitely recommend having a 4x4 vehicle to get here and travel around the area. Yoav was a great host - really nice and responsive to all of our questions. Would love to come back!

    David2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cosy place with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's surrounded by the beautiful nature so you will never get tired of sitting outside listening to the sounds and watching the wild life. Yoav and Cecilia are great hosts, very helpful and considerate. For anyone who enjoys yoga there are many opportunities for private or common classes at the beach or in the beautiful outdoor yoga studio.

    Elin2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Cute place. Nice hosts, close drive from ocean. Don’t be afraid of bugs!

    Isabel2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • WOW. This place is incredible. Its right in the thick of everything and you can hear animals all around you. The yoga studio with silks is beautiful and the house in cute and clean. There is a hammock right out front too. Cecilia was so accommodating throughout our stay too, we did a yoga class and an aerial silk class with her and it was incredible. It’s very difficult to find so follow the directions given to a T if you are driving. Do not arrive in the dark as it will take you 30-45 mins longer on your first time in the dark. The roads are incredibly bumpy, gravelly and difficult to drive on so either rent an awesome 4 wheel drive or be prepared for a flat tire (we got it on the drive back to San Jose luckily during daytime). There are amazing beaches and food options around Marbella and San Juanillo. Everybody is so kind and helpful and there are dogs everywhere you go. I highly recommend a stay here. Be mindful it will take around 5 hours if driving from San Jose and a lot less from Liberia. Get groceries along the way (there is no oven of course so get stuff for the stove).

    Katrina2019-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Marbella, Santa Cruz,, Costa Rica

    Cozy wood cabin located only 1.5 km to San Juanillo Beach, 7 km to Marbella and Ostional Wildlife Refuge, 8 km from Pacha Mama. Perfect for a person who loves to be surrounded by nature. The "humble abode" has an outdoor private shower and a shared bathroom. Activities in the area include archery, yoga, ayurvedic workshops, tours on horseback, fishing tours, ATV and bicycle rentals. Guest are welcome to use the Yoga and Archery Rancho when classes are not scheduled.
    Pura Veda is surrounded by forest and we have planted much of our food. Come and relax. If you wish to order food from our kitchen, let us know in advance.
    Very peaceful, close to beach. If you want more action, you can always take a day trip to Nosara.
  • Amazing place and host! Perfect if you want to be surrounded by nature and not by tourists. Sonia and Freddie are greats hosts, very friendly and welcoming. You can hike to the beach, takes about 15-20 minutes or you can rent bicycles on property, and they helped me with tips to get around the area, or arrange a taxi. Also, you can order delicious breakfast from Sonia’s kitchen. Archery lesson was one of the best things I did in Costa Rica! A form of meditation that connects you with your breath and focus. 🙏 Outdoor shower is great in the morning! Hike up the hill to see monkeys!!🐒

    Olga2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded areas and are looking for peace and quiet this is your place to stay. The Pura Veda retreat center is beautiful - yet smaller than I had imagined - and Sonia and her family are extremely gentle and friendly people. Sonia makes the most delicious breakfast and dinner upon request. You can do your own yoga practice at their deck or join their family practice in the mornings. Very Pura Veda. The humble abode is a very humble abode, yet the bed is comfortable. The only things I missed was a place, preferably a hammock, to chill outdoors in the shadow. However, since there were no other guests at the time Sonia was kind to let me use the hammock on the deck outside the tent further up the property. Kitchen access or access to hot water for my morning coffee would also have been a huge bonus. If you want that you should book the Hexagon Bungalow. In San Juanillo there is not much, except for a very beautiful beach with few people. The village center has two small groceries, a local bar, a restaurant, a dress shop, and a cafe, Ancient People (closes 4pm) where you can get access to wifi and have organic meals and drinks. Appearantly, Ancient People is where the Pachamama people or visitors hang out. San Juanillo is definitely worth a visit but as there are noe local buses between Nosara and here, if you dont come by car, you need to either pay a taxi or hitchike.

    Christine2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Pura Veda is in a perfect location-tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Nosara yet super close to a beach that is so beautiful it’ll take your breath away. Sonia and her family welcomed me onto their property with open hearts and kind spirits. They answered any and all questions that I had and eased my “solo travel” jitters. Sonia cooks absolutely amazing food and hosts soul-fulfilling Yoga classes that I definitely recommend you check out. This is the place to stay if you’re visiting Costa Rica!

    Madison2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Good value, close to beach with parking, a bit difficult to find initially

    Spencer2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I had the opportunity to stay with Sonia and Freddy in San Juanillo in the Humble Abode. It was a wonderful experience to be immersed in the jungle and see all of the beautiful plant life. They were amazing hosts and really made me feel at home there. I would wake up early, and had the chance to take few yoga/meditation classes on their yoga deck. Sonia offered me 'Ayurvedic style' made breakfasts and dinners at reasonable prices. If you are interested in healthy eating, or getting started with it, Sonia is more than happy to try to accommodate some learning experiences for you when it comes to eating more organic, whole foods. I had dinner with them one night and the conversation was very interesting learning how they started it all, and what the process was like moving abroad from the USA. I was really impressed by how much they walked their talk, it is so inspiring. It was a very interesting conversation to say the least. Also, their children are incredibly kind, polite and intelligent. At first the humble abode feels small but then it becomes kind of like a sanctuary. I actually stayed at a different accommodation nearby in an open air casita and felt much safer in the Humble Abode in terms of wild animals coming for me ;) If you want to cook, choose one of their other bungalows, they offer some cooking appliances. In terms of location, it is about a 25 minute walk to the two local beach. There is one to the right (more locals) and one to the left (more Pachamama people). As a side note, I was weary about hitching rides there, but it is common, normal and kind of necessary on the really hot days! Staying here will be a memory I hold dear to my heart. Sonia and Freddy are really wonderful humans that are so accepting, kind, and present. It is a challenging thing to live your truth these days, and they are a great example of accomplishing that!

    Elisia2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing space! The family is so welcoming and helped me settle in to the area, even offering me a drive to my next destination. The Casita was perfect, comfortable, and clean. No kitchen, but the place is a 15 min walk to some authentic restaurants, and the MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH

    Robert2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful gem! Looking for cheaper options outside of Nosara, I stumbled upon Pura Veda and I’m overjoyed to have experienced it’s magic. Sonia and her family have kept this land really pure and they provide a down the earth authentic vibe that can be hard to find in the area. The surrounding land is full of wildlife and wonder! One of the best things about this place is the absolutely sacred pathway that leads from their place to the beach. Off the beaten path but very safe, this path takes about 45 minutes and will provide lots of beautiful animal connections and nature moments. It’s one of my favorite experiences I’ve had in Costa Rica! The beach where the path leads is pretty much a private beach with the most beautiful seashells I’ve ever seen. It’s a 5 min walk to San Juanillo from there where you can get great food and necessities. The humble abode is a wonderful space and very comfortable while the amenities (including a great archery range/ yoga platform!) are great for the price. Sonia offers breakfast for a reasonable cost and offered to work out rides for me as well. I’d love to come back for one of her retreats on Ayurveda or yoga! Also, this is a great spot for anyone who is planning a retreat as there are flexible options for facilitators.

    Layna2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • I spent 15 nights at Sonia's place, and I am very happy withy decision. The room itself, is small and simple, as advertised, but perfect for what I was looking for, and at a great value. The outside private shower was an amazing touch as well. The host family are great people, down to earth, literally and figuratively. Wonderful people to have around and have good conversations with, and very helpful all around. It was nice to see what they have built there, with a nice place to practice yoga and archery, ayurvedic herbs growing everywhere, and falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle was so therapeutic. It is located just a short walk to a virtually private amazing beach, which I had to myself for hours everyday, only a few other people at the beach from time to time. I don't think I missed a sunset at the beach the whole time I was there, it was amazing. I also rented a mountain bike from them, and explored the coast daily between Guiones and Marbella, so many great beaches around there to explore, and having a mountain bike was not something I had planned on before I got there, but it turned out to be a great decision, because I got to experience multiple beaches, and side roads for great views and for convenience getting into town. The small town of San Juanillo is about a kilometer away, with a couple little stores to get anything you'd generally need from a convenience store, and some produce. There are also a few cafes in town for wifi, coffee, and food. It is a quiet town, but more than you'd need to survive comfortably. Plus, I would ride the mountain bike to Marbella to visit the Tiki Hut, and ride the bike to Guiones to check out more cafes, beach, and to do a little more shopping. I can't say enough good things about the experience. Sonia, Freddy, and their two sons were a joy to get to know, and were so helpful with everything. And for the price, it was a great value to have such direct access to nature and gorgeous beaches, in a safe, peaceful, comfortable, down-to-earth environment. I totally recommend this place.

We feel at home! What an amazing place! If you seek privacy and comfort this is the place. Don't miss Ekart at ancient people. Great person, great food!

    Marina2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing, quiet place to decompress. Nice for cooking and ‘officing’ or reading, exploring the nearby beach etc. Its very very stylish! The hosts are very easy to connect with and have great recommendations for local places.

  • Shlomo’s place was exactly as described in the website! Clean, tidy and spacious studio with all the equipments needed for preparing dinner or breakfast by ourself. The studio is in the middle of the jungle which was a good experience to have! 5 min away from the beach by car!

    Marine2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great place for a retreat and Shlomo is nice and a great host. very quiet place in the middle of a forest good for the soul.

    Nacer2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • A piece of Paradise on earth ! Seriously this is the greatest experience ever! We don’t know we’re to start from. Shlomo is the most amazing host , super welcoming and calm, always quick in his responses and always around and available for chat. If you are in Costa Rica , You must visit his estate..if you want to connect with nature, listen to the sounds of jungle while sleeping and waking up with some yoga .. this is the place to be. The Casitas are very clean and they have everything you need for your stay, the balcony with the hammock is just the perfect touch. The price is super low for what you get! Try his homemade breakfast! We will be back for sure! Shlomo thank you for creating such a paradise and sharing it with the world !

    Lila2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Tyson2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place. We enjoyed the intimate yoga classes in the morning and the breakfast prepared on site was delicious! We went on a hike on the premises and saw howler monkeys and other creatures. The stars are very bright here at night. Shlomo was a great host.

    Dan2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Shlomo was a great host and the experience at the casita was exactly what I had hoped for. Everything was great and it was a great way to unwind for a few days and just take in the serenity of the area. His place was very welcoming and really gave a new perspective on things and life. The food and yoga were amazing add ons to the experience. The roads to get there are an adventure and you will need to have a good vehicle to get there (4x4). The place is also in the middle of nature so if you can’t handle the sounds and small critters this isn’t your type of place but if you can handle it it’s exactly what you want. I loved falling asleep to the noises of the night and just feeling at peace.

    Amber2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely loved staying at Shlomo’s. The cabins are exactly as in the photos, very clean and totally cozy with wonderful incorporation of all the natural wood found on the property. You can hear the howler monkeys talking all around you at night which is fun. The main house where there is yoga in the mornings is an absolutely elegant natural space to admire the surroundings, and Shlomo could not be a more welcoming host. Don’t miss the breakfast - it’s a treat with fresh ingredients prepared lovingly. If you are looking for a retreat off the beaten path, I highly recommend Shlomo’s.

  • Enjoyed our entire stay. Steven's place made us feel at home while on holiday. The attention to detail within included very nice furnishings as well as a beautiful outdoor garden. It was a joy to sit on the patio drinking coffee in the mornings before heading to the beach looking at the garden and listening to the birds.

    Dave2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We will be back - great clean villa in the perfect location. Love the exclude beach closed by and the various restaurants and small grocery stores - all small walking distance. Very quiet fishing village with great local and many friendly dogs - wish we had learned Spanish - next trip.

  • Perfect spot in Guanacaste, close to one of the best beach in Guanacaste. The house is really quite and private. It was really clean, with all the requirements to stay comfortable. San Juanillo beach is beautiful. If you are coming from another country or this is the first in this beach, please consider that it is not close to a lot of restaurants, supermarkets or stores. That is why I love this place. You can feel disconnected, stay relax and enjoy the nature.

    Andrea2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Steven's villa is really beautiful. Everything is thought of, air conditioning, mosquito screens on all windows, .... We really liked it! When you come to San Juanillo you can be a bit disappointed, it doesn't really have many restaurants and options. Two beaches can be reached on foot in about 10 minutes, with one of the two it is not uncommon that you are totally alone at times! At high tide the beach is beautiful !!!

    Sibylle2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Steven’s villa is a very comfortable place equipped with everything you need for a peaceful stay. Steven is very helpful and responds very fast to all your questions. The villa is located near the beach, around a 4 minute walk and everything in the villa is brand new and clean. If you want quiet and be away from crowded places this is the place to be!

    Casa Roy is a nice 3 bedroom house, two minutes stroll to the most beautiful, romantic & safe swimming beaches of the Nosara area! San Juanillo offers snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, diving & more, a small store and a few restaurants, Relaxation !
    This is a nice house, near the beach, ceiling fans and a nice lounge terrace. A great restaurant is just across the street and all the beaches only 2-5 minutes walk away. The house is perfect for 2-5 guests. Prices according to number of guests.
    San Juanillo is a unique Costa Rica fishing village, unspoiled and with pristine Beaches. The Locals are super friendly and there are no large Hotels in the area. It is only 20 minutes drive from Nosara for all amenities, also Nosara Regional Airport w. daily flights.
  • The house is big, inside and outside, perfect for family. It is close to the beach that has a local atmosphare. It is a tiny Village. We liked that place. Everything was close to us, restaurant and grocery, and other beaches. Steven is friendly and always helpful😊

    Barbora2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a great little spot for a small family, or two couples. The beach is only a couple minutes walk (we went every morning and evening). There are several restaurants to walk to and a decent little market that carries just about everything you need to cook your own meals. I would definitely stay here again.

    Aubrie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Steven is really very friendly and available. The house is really very clean and spacious. The sea is only 5min walk.

    Nosara-San Juanillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Relax in the most luxurious tree house in Costa Rica. I have TWO of them suspended over the jungle accessible by a suspension bridge. Could it get any more charming? Wake up to the sounds of birds and monkeys. Lay around by the pool with ocean view. Explore the beauty the area has to offer. 3 min from stunning beaches. It's truly a magical space. They can be booked together or separate and for bigger groups there's another 2 bedroom house on site that can be booked to sleep a total of 8 people.
    The house is fully stocked and is ready for your enjoyment. I supply basics like soap and toilet paper, good quality towels and bedding. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare yourself a meal. The bed is a super comfotable top of the line Sealy queen mattress with the most comfortable bedding.
    The house is located on a nature reserve so there is a ton of privacy and untouched beauty. My property itself is just over 2 acres and although this is new construction I have left as much jungle around as possible to truly give my guests the feeling that they are in the middle of nowhere. Its really spectacular. 5 minutes away is a fishing village called San Juanillo. It has a decent grocery store and a fish shop. You really can get everything you need in town. There are also 4 restaurants now and a small beach bar that serves snack foods. 20 minutes away is a much bigger town called Nosara and here you will find amazing restaurants/cafes and night life.
  • Wonderful place !

    Philippe2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very responsive and great host. Unique property and you fell very connected to nature. The outdoor shower is great!

    Doug2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Cindy2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a true jungle experience in newer modern treehouses with all the amenities then you really need to check this place out. The hosts are so attentive to your needs and respond quickly with any questions or needs. San Jaunillo area has some of the best beaches on the pacific coast with some of the top surfing areas as well. All within 5-20 minutes from Brett and Garnets two tree houses. The beach bars and little restaurants are awesome as well. You won't be disappointed!!

    Steve2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nature lovers paradise. We had a magical stay at Brett's treehouse in San Juanillo. In fact - once we continued our trip up North we wish we could have gone back (don't get me wrong - we enjoyed the rest of our trip) But the tree house is just truly special. Falling asleep & waking up to the sounds of the jungle was so incredible... and the outside shower was just the icing on the cake! We took the hike to the secret beach which was so beautiful - we were the only ones there! & caught some of the most jaw dropping sunsets we have ever seen on the beach right down the road from Ostional. GO to Brisas Del Mar - we ate the ceviche every night, heaven. Like som reviews have noted - you will definitely want a 4 wheel drive SUV or 4wheeler as the roads are rough... but to us - absolutely worth it!

    Maia2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Really could not have hoped for a better check-in experience - the team were so helpful - they really went above and beyond to help us settle in. This is a beautiful spot - a good 10 miles from the tourist hustle and bustle of Nosara, so you'll really feel like you're off the grid (if you decide to use a quad to get around I recommend some goggles and something to put over your mouth for the road dust). We were recommended to go to a local restaurant called Brisa del Mar in San Juanillo and I couldn't recommend it more - make sure you get the seafood and you'll get a wonderful taste of local cuisine. Thanks guys!

    Patrick2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in this treehouse was an amazing experience. Brett and his team, Melissa and Garnet, were all very helpful. Melissa met us at a local market and guided us to the location since it is hard to find and the some roads aren’t listed on maps in Costa Rica. There is quite the climb down to the house from the parking lot but what else do you expect when you’re staying in a treehouse in the jungle? The house was in perfect condition. Beautiful and clean! Exactly what you see in the photos, but maybe a bit smaller than expected. There wasn’t really anywhere to put your luggage since the room was so tight. That is pretty much the only negative comment I could come up with. The shower was brilliant, the kitchen is super clean and well stocked. They supplied a pamphlet with things to do, beaches to see, restaurants to try and all that. Everything we tried we loved, especially the “secret beach” they recommended (thanks for that guys). The wildlife you see while staying here is amazing too. Birds, butterflies, squirrels, coatimundi and of course Monkeys. On Christmas morning we were woken up by a family on Howler Monkeys howling in the tree next to us. Very creepy sounds but so so cool! All in all it was an amazing time. We would definitely go back. Pura Vida 🤙🏼

    Stephani2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible. Everything about it is perfect. One of the most unique places I’ve ever stayed at and the addition of the pool makes it perfect. Can’t go wrong booking this, you are 5 minute drive from the beach and if you surf you are a 25 min drive to Nosara. Thanks Brett and Garret

  • Shlomo was genuinely interested in his visitors well-being! He went above and beyond to ensure our comfort at his establishment. The yoga was quite interesting and relaxing. If you're looking to escape the traditional beach spot and get into nature, this is the place!

  • Shlomo’s place is a beautiful retreat. If you are looking to decompress, come here for a real Costa Rican experience ! Best to have your own vehicle, dirt roads in CR are bumpy and windy and the closest community is a 10 min drive.

    Sara2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    Diogo2020-01-18T00:00:00Z

We had the opportunity to meet some fascinating local wildlife and monkeys were often hanging around our front door! Shlomo was a fabulous host and an inspiration in how to live life. Can't wait to come back.

    Located only 1.5 km to San Juanillo Beach, 7 Km to the popular surfing beach of Marbella and 7 km to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. Perfect for visitors that want to be close to all the attractions, but love the feel of being secluded in nature. Enjoy the many species of birds and wildlife that frequently visit the property. Archery, Yoga, and meditation are offered as add on activities on the property, as well as bike rentals so that you can discover the many fun activities in the area.
    Nestled in the forest just 1 mile from Pacha Mama beach and Fisherman's Beach. We can also provide meals from our Ayurvedic Kitchen upon request. Nearby attractions include the beautiful San Juanillo waterfalls, we live at the base of the road that goes up to the waterfalls, Pacha Mama and San Juanillo beaches. Horseback riding, ATV tours, boat tours, cooking, yoga, and archery classes can be arranged upon request. We are 30 minutes from the surf town of Nosara, which is home to many restaurants, attractions and beaches. And 15 minutes from the less popular Marbella beach, another nice surf spot. The neighboring town of Ostional is visited by many to watch the turtle nesting, a specular sight.
    We are 1.5 km walking distance down a scenic trail to San Juanillo beach, one of Costa Rica's best snorkeling beaches. We are also walking distance from the town. We have a creek on the property that can be explored and which meet up with other creeks and rivers. And our property is located at the base of a road that leads to the beautiful San Juanillo waterfalls.
  • We enjoyed our stay. The space is very beautifully designed and very clean. When we arrived Sonia told us a cleaning lady would be coming up in about an hour to clean some bird droppings off the balcony. Honestly, we would not have noticed or minded the droppings at all had she not mentioned them, but it shows the level of pride and attention to detail Sonia has. Sonia also provided a small bar of a local soap from Monteverde, which was a very nice touch. From the rental we heard howler monkeys and saw a number of beautiful birds. A quick ride down the road after we started hearing the howler monkeys gave us our first sighting. This rental is in a less developed area of Costa Rica, with just a few nearby restaurants and all pretty rough dirt roads, so keep that in mind when booking or considering going to the San Juanillo area.

    Erica2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at the Hexagon Bungalow at Pura Veda is a magical experience. The jungle is more alive there thanks for the efforts and Sonia, Freddy, and sons, and the whole atmosphere is very nurturing. As far as creature comforts, the bungalow is stocked with coffee supplies, cooking stuff, a comfy bed, fan, a couple of tables and chairs and a very balancing atmosphere. It's as if the hexagon shape brings everything together for you. So it's a conducive environment for self reflection and immersion in the jungle. There is a space where you can practice yoga (or take a class with Sonia), and a lovely route for walking to a very special beach. Sonia's food is outstanding, and I was able to stay there without needing to leave for restaurants. I really loved my stay at Pura Veda and would return in a heartbeat!

    Amber2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a warm welcome with so much calm! You get to just chill out in the jungle which is beautiful. They will take care of you no questions asked. There is also meals and snacks to purchase but she hand makes them all out of their beautiful kitchen. One of my best stays yet.

    Megan2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It is a magical, quiet place with an unbeatable tranquility and peace. They are a very beautiful family. Thanks for everything.

    Jose Pablo2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The whole family was really warm and helpful. They told us a lot about the nature and their beautiful garden. I joined Sonia for Yoga in the morning, which was a great experience. One day we had an archery with Freddy which we really enjoyed. The path down to the beach is a nice walk. You can walk up the hill for a beautiful sunset. When you are traveling with the bus make sure you get the last bus from Santa Cruz at 4pm. If I’m next time to Costa Rica I would visit them again.

    My place is located in Marbella, Guanacaste, a well known surf-area, an hour away from Liberia Airport, it is walking distance off Playa Frijolar, Marbella, it is surrounded by NATURE.... You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the people, the coziness, the high ceilings, the freedom and tranquility and the SURF... . My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
    we are walking distance off the sea, in a secured and peaceful area, very close to this well known surf-beach Frijolar.
    You are five minutes away - walking distance - off the beach. You can visit other beaches such Pithaya, San Juanillo, Tamarindo, Guiones, Garza, etc. Also we are very close to Nosara, Santa Cruz and Liberia.
  • Peaceful place. Located inside of a condominium. The kitchen is next door outside and it gets a lot of sun in the afternoon, the bathroom is separated from the room that overlooks the outside outdoors to take it into account. However, the weather was favorable and the sunset seen from the pool area is very pleasant, you can see the stars at night from there and have a quiet time. Safe place, and close to Marbella beach.

    Paola2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful, so relaxing!! The pool is as pictured, beautiful at sunset, all kinds of birds come to drink and it's a spectacle. The kitchen is completely open, you'll have breakfast while watching the birds come and go and a wonderful breeze. I loved it, loved to sit with my tea in the couch after breakfast and read for a while before heading to the beach. Because the kitchen is open, make sure not to leave any food outside, at all! There's a lot of animals that roam at night (we had the most ADORABLE spotted skunk visit us several times, he was hardly scared of us...but we were of him, we didn't like the prospect of getting sprayed, but he was pretty chilled ;) and he was so beautiful!). The room has a great view and we loved waking up with the sounds of nature, but as several people have mentioned, the sun hits the room directly in the afternoon and it becomes an oven. You can open all the doors and get the fans running and that will cool it off before going to bed. We slept very comfortably at night but you have to sleep with the glass doors open and there's no screen for mosquitos, we were lucky and there were no mosquitos at all, but there's a lot of wildlife (as mentioned above) and we wondered if we could have been woken up by our little skunk friend hanging out in our room :). I'd say a screen in the room for mosquitos (and wild life) is the only thing this place needs to be perfect.

    Carolina2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lorna's space is in one of those "ghost" condominiums that abound in Guanacaste, with a lot of capacity but few houses built. That makes it unique, since one can enjoy solitude, silence and common spaces as if they were their own. Within these spaces, the pool with an ocean view and infinite architecture is EVERYTHING. Being there all day is the maximum, and at sunset it is filled with birds that go from a tree near the pool to drink water. The nearest beach is only one block away, it is wide, with a little strong swell, and a nearby bar where you can eat or drink. The department is located in the lower part, the upper part is the apartment of the owners (who are rarely there, so privacy is almost assured). The bedroom is a bit hot, but opening the window and the door runs a good breeze. A good improvement would be to place mosquito nets in a window and door, to prevent the entry of insects at night. The bathroom is outside the room (next door), and is spacious and with a shower. In the open space you will find the kitchen, fridge and dining room, in a very wide space with a slight view of the sea, where breakfast, lunch and dinner is a pleasure. My only suggestion is to add some missing dishes, such as potato peelers, blender, salad bowl, glass cups, etc. and basic kitchen items so as not to have to buy things when they arrive (such as tea, coffee, salt, oil and sugar). With these suggestions, this almost perfect place would become perfect. Highly recommended.

    Alejandro2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • The communication from the beginning was perfect, they made us feel very comfortable when we arrived, they answered our doubts and concerns, they gave us references of places to visit and eat. The photos reflect the true place, there are many comforts with everything, the kitchen very well equipped and we had no problems with the mosquitoes at all. The pool and the area in general is amazing. Our only discomfort was the heat at night in the room because it is something locked up, but we fixed it by placing the fan closest to us. In general it is an excellent place with very good hosts. Super recommended.

  • Casa Alice is a very homely stay and the hosts Adriana, Matteo and their daughter Alice are super sweet. So is the dog Rio that hangs out in the garden. I rented a surf board and took a lesson from Matteo, which was a lot of fun. The beach is just amazing! I was offered to change to the dormitory after my first night, cause it was very hot in the private room. It turned out really well. Can absolutely recommend Casa Alice!

  • Breath taking location. Close to most beautiful beaches in CR. Hosts are knowledgeable and helpful. Understand that the location is extremely remote before you book. Bring a 4x4 as local roads are difficult to navigate.

    Ken2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed the privacy and the private pool with a sea view. The room has all the amenities, outside kitchen. It is a little bit remote so a 4x4 is mandatory !

    Jeremy2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay. Peaceful, relaxing and very clean place. We recommend it !!!

    Gaelle2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent airbnb for nature lovers with an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean and the jungle. Lots of birds to watch and monkeys. The premises are clean and well maintained. The hosts are super attentive and they made us discover several places nearby. They are even available to help you book activities or restaurants. We recommend it to everyone.

    Carl2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The super comfortable and cozy place! There is everything you need. Pure nature and close to many of the best beaches in Guanacaste! Super Recommended!

    Diego2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing trip we did. The Zimmermann family are simply the best in all the senses. They were very helpful, suggested some amazing activities, I strongly suggest the fishing tour with Christian. They were more than host, we made friends. Thanks again Chris and Diana.

    Bibz2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Heaven on earth. Getting up to the sound of birds and howler monkeys was just amazing! Super welcome by Christian and his wife. Thank you very much, we loved our stay

    Casa Alice is located in the magic authentic jungle town of Marbella, 800 m far away from the world class surf spot - 15 min. walking distance (It's not permitted to build on the beach). The beach is a truly paradise
    This room is very big with garden view all around and very big window with 6 beds, air conditioned, lockers, ceiling fan and shared bathroom. Adriana, her husband Matteo and little Alice their daughter are happy to welcome you in Casa Alice Surf Lodge a 3 story, 4,520 sq. feet villa with private or shared rooms for guests for every budget. This is the closest lodge to the beach in town. The villa is surrounded by greenery and populated by nice howler monkeys at the sunrise/sunset. Spring drinkable water which saves you a lot of money. The villa is beautifully furnished in typical style guanacasteco enriched ceilings, doors and furniture from local wood. It's cozy and clean enough to be perfect for families with children and for single travelers. Surfers or not is good for everybody who likes authentic and pure beauty and nature far away from crowded dirty beaches.
    Adorable local cowboys "vaqueros" you'll see riding their horses. Farmers where you can buy eggs and organic vegetables. You'll will not find nightlife here but an immense fortune to stay in relax in a paradise made of virgin jungle, wild beach with clear water and not crowded or dirty water cause of boats and sewers as in majority of places.
  • Really nice place to stay!

    Valeria2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Alice is a great location for getting quickly to the beach. Great hosts, clean space, quiet and easy to find. Thanks for the stay!

    Sam2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing surf and beautiful location! The house is clean and big with everything you need. Adriana, Matteo, (and Alice) were incredibly welcoming, giving me the local tips and setting me up to have a good time. The first morning I was there I went surfing with Matteo, it's a 20 minute walk down to the beach but he gave me a ride on the back of his motor bike. The moon was in high and the light everywhere was golden, it was so beautiful like a dream. I could not say enough good things about my experience. Plus the pizza they make is incredible so dont miss it! Marbella is a gem, the town doesnt really have night life but it was perfect for me and my goal to relax!

    Matthew2020-01-17T00:00:00Z

    César2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The space is amazing, Adriana and Matew were super helpful, giving us all the attention we needed. Matew makes a wonderful typically Italian pizza that we had the opportunity to eat twice. Dog Rio very affectionate and accompanied us to the beach and made the party with his friends. The beach is close and walking to the right has good spots for surfing and swimming. I recommend!

    A stunning brand new modern home that feels just as luxurious as it looks. Incredible ocean view. 2 self contained (kingsize) bedrooms and separate living space. It is truly a unique space that can hold a variety of options for you. There are also 2 other tree houses on the property (1bed each) that can be rented as well. The entire property accommodates 8 or the main house accommodates 4 comfortably. It is located in a nature reserve and is surrounded by lush jungle. It doesn't get any better.
    The space is very open and bright. It feels modern and comfortable.
    The house is close to San Juanillo town where you will find a super market, a few restaurants, fish shop beach bar and all the things you'll need. It is small but super charming. About 20 minutes away is Nosara a bigger town with a ton of restaurants and bars and shops. The house is 1.5hours from Liberia airport and 4 hours from San Jose airport.
  • Where to start? This home was absolute, magic. It’s located only a short distance to a few amazing beaches! The secret private beach is completely empty. We saw no one and the beaches are black sand! San Juanillo beach is amazing to swim at high tide and we saw bio illuminesence at Playa Ostinol! There is a big grocery store about 15 min drive towards Nosara... we enjoyed cooking here at the house as the view is stunning! There is also fresh fish around! Nature here is incredible. And the views are equally as impressive. We loved the energy of this home and hope to be back soon!

    Meg2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Limones de Oro was the perfect place for my wife and I to call home during our 1-week stay in Costa Rica. The property is incredible. We have rented a number of properties through Airbnb around the world, and this one is our favorite yet. As beautiful as the pictures in the listing are, they can't do the property or the views justice. The property felt like home and was the perfect place to return to each day after exploring, or just simply lounge around and enjoy the pool, the breeze, the sights and sounds of nature and views. Brett, Garnet and Rosa are amazing hosts. Brett and Garnet were incredibly helpful, responded immediately to every question and provided a ton of helpful local insight. Rosa is also amazing and actually cooked dinner for us (and shared the meal with us) on our last night and was one of the highlights of our trip. As for the house itself, it is clean, up-to-date, perfectly maintained and just the right amount of space. The outdoor living area and kitchen is the perfect place to start and end your day with a cup of coffee or glass of wine while enjoying the view. The sounds of the birds and howler monkeys in the morning and the stunning night sky are just such cool things to experience. Even the showers have amazing views as they are outside but still very private. The small village of San Juanillo has a couple of restaurants (Ancient People is a great place for breakfast/lunch), a small grocery that has everything you need (don't judge by the view from the street) and a beautiful beach. Nosara is about a 30-minute drive south and is a trendy town with some cool shops and good restaurants (don't miss Rosi's!), but it can get a bit crowded and it is much more of a tourist destination. It was good for the occasional visit for us as we prefer a bit quieter and secluded experience. A couple of tips when visiting Brett's place: 1) Make sure to rent a sturdy 4x4 SUV for your travels. There is no other way to put this besides the driving is a fun adventure. There is a 40-minute drive on a dirt road from the main paved route to get to the house and it's a 30-minute drive south on the same dirt road to get to Nosara. 2) The roads are very dark at night, but as long as you are careful and alert it is not a problem. 3) The location is private and secluded (ideal for us) but some would consider it remote. The villages in the area have a few restaurants (with very delicious food) and the essentials, but it is limited. Brett's is a perfect place for those of us who love the ocean and exploring outdoors. We highly recommend the experience of staying at Limones de Oro and we've already discussed returning at the end of the rainy season.

    Mike2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a marvelous stay. Very quaint place with an unbeatable view. And Brett is a A+ host. Book with confidence

    Trevor2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Brett’s place was just awesome– exactly as shown in the listing and, more importantly, perfect for our quick little family getaway. Brett, Garnet and Rosa made everything an absolute breeze. All of the little details were taken care of and we were never left thinking we had to compromise on anything. We quickly settled in and lived in the house surrounded by the unique environment. The sunsets and the howler monkeys were really cool. The layout is perfect for taking full advantage of these. But, it was obvious that great attention was paid to the layout and positioning of the buildings on the site as, even in the middle day blazing sun and high winds, you didn’t feel exposed to the elements. We are already looking at calendars and schedules and planning our next trip!

    Dean2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This house is situated in a spectacular, beautiful, natural and peaceful spot. The views sunsets and birdlife are amazing. The house itself is well appointed, comfortable and clean. We loved our visits in the mornings and before sunset to nearby Ostional, San Juanillo and Marbella beaches and at times we were the only people on the beach.

    Gabriela2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Bretts place is in the perfect location if you are looking to relax and enjoy the calm of not being in a touristy area. The house is set up to give you brilliant sunsets night after night. The pool and outside common area were a dream. The accommodations were everything we had hoped for. Listening to jungle noises and hearing the waves crash from bed was pure magic. We will be back!!

    Emily2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Truly memorable! What an amazing house!! we really enjoyed staying in Brett’s house for almost a week in Jan 2020. Nosara with its lovely yoga places and restaurants (Coyol!) is within reach and sweet San Juanillo offers everything you need on a day to day basis (supermarket, beach, fishshop). We also specifally want to mention Rosa who cooked for us an amazing “tica” dinner. Would love to be back!!

    Roderik2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Garret and Brett were the perfect hosts. The place was definitely a little paradise. The cosy rooms and beds instantly made us forget our long day of traveling. 3 days felt so energizing to us, but went by too fast! We were worried about being too far from the ocean, but actually the short 10 min drive to the beach is easy and not at all inconvenient! On the contrary it gave the house a calm atmosphere and the feeling of being a bit more remote :) thank you for everything!

  • We stayed 1 month with our baby and our 2 year old in this beautiful house decorated with care. We loved its location because it allowed us to hit the road every day to new beaches / villages. The beach near the house is beautiful, we loved spending long hours there and enjoying its magnificent sunsets! The beach is frequented by locals and surfers, the vibe is great! Yanci was very attentive during our stay. As soon as we had questions or concerns, it came back to us at lightning speed. I have nothing but positive to say and we had a lot of trouble leaving this little corner of paradise because we really felt at home. Do not hesitate! You will come back with wonderful memories!

  • Absolutely stunning house! Sparking clean and with all the amenities of a modern home, Origami house offers the opportunity to enjoy the clean beaches of Guanacaste at a reasonable price an driving distance. Getting to the house is only a couple of hours from international airport in Liberia (LIR) You definitely need a car to get there, 4WD highly encourage as you will find dirt roads and rough spots here and there, but this is the case to access most of the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. The house is located in a subdivision with 24/7 surveillance and was the perfect location for our family trip. Two bedrooms downstairs ensured that guests with mobility issues could enjoy the main floor, kitchen and beautiful pool on the back. Master suite upstairs made us feel relaxed and renewed every morning! Spacious shower, well appointed kitchen with everyting you need to make yourself at home! Soft and luxurious towels in the bathroom, independent A/C units in every room (although we ended up using the fan mode only, to enjoy the ocean breeze through open screened doos and windows), on-site laundry and dryer... even beach chairs and sand mats!!! Best of all: Yanci as your Superhost, always available to answer all our questions and concerns, and give us all the best tips for local places!!! The only negative that I could mention is that this subdivision has other houses under construction and you will hear electric saws at different times of the day (i.e. 7AM on a Sunday morning!) but this is completely beyond the host's control and once you get your day started, you barely notice them. Plus, chances are you will go out and enjoy the beaches during the day (Marbella and San Juanillo were so close!), and return to a quiet place after sunset. With a little bit of luck, you may even spot turtles laying eggs at night in nearby Playa Ostional! Thanks Yanci for sharing tips with us!

    Casa Pitayha is a Cabaña offering Parking Space on the ground floor and a comfortable studio space on the upper floor. Most of the small house is made of local tropical timber coming from reforestation (Teak floor, teak beams, Pochote walls...). Built on a 1.25 acres property, the house is surrounded with Guanacaste trees and wildlife (howler monkeys, hummingbirds...). This house is for true nature lovers that are willing to get out of the beaten track and "live" the dry tropical forest.
  • Where to begin?! If you are thinking about booking with Cedric and Maria, you should. The cabin is open enough to feel in harmony with the surroundings (howler monkeys, myriad species of birds, bats, bugs, geckos), but closed off enough not to feel creepy crawlies while sleeping! Close enough to the beach to walk, though we drove as it was March and very hot (and we were being cautious having had arrived from close to zero temps). Close to Marbella for little groceries. No gas for at least 45 minutes in either direction, so come with at least half a tank. Cedric and Maria are super helpful and friendly and full of information on the area. Overall, a fantastic experience and we wish Maria and Cedric all the best. And bring your sunscreen and/or remember to cover up at the beach. The sun is hot!

    Gillian2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation of Maria and Cedric is a place to recommend. It is very well located and warm. We had a wonderful stay.

  • Excellent hospitality

    Rodny2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I decided to not rent a car so getting around in Marbella meant a lot of walking. We didn’t mind the walking because of how beautiful it was! Walking to the beach took about 15 minutes and that was all the way to the tiki hut restaurant. The house was simple but beautifully hand crafted! We had a nice breeze and working fans so we were never too warm. The property is among the trees so it was very tranquil. The best part was the hospitality of Cedric and Maria. Because we didn’t have a car we arranged to have someone pick us up and drive us to our next destination. That plan fell through and we were stuck without a ride to Playa Avellanas which was 1.5 hours away. We spoke to Cedric about this and he immediately found us a ride with a good friend of his. He didn’t have to go out of his way but he did. Just the small kindness went a long way and set the tone for our Costa Rican adventure. Thank you again for such a great experience, we will be back soon. Pura Vida

    Shea2020-01-11T00:00:00Z

  • Absolutely breathtaking views!! The place was so beautiful and great layout. I highly recommend this place. Not far from town and the beaches were gorgeous. Deylin was a super host and very helpful. Thank you for the memories! Katherine

    Katherine2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Dey kind space is breathtaking. Beautiful, minimalist design, feels super open with the glass walls . The view for the deck is amazing and the pool is just the o perfect size to cool off on a hot day .

    Kyle2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved Deylin’s place. We loved the view. It is incredible and the sunsets and stars were so beautiful. We felt like celebrities staying at this place. The place is stylish with comfortable bed and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with all you need to make meals in which we did each night. There are spices and coffee also. The pool was nice to dip into as was quite hot during the day. We also enjoyed having AC. Recommend 4 wheel drive as the driveway is steep and used it on some of the roads. Ostional is a small beach town with one mini super and a restaurant. We liked being out of the busier town of Nosara but yet it was close enough to visit very easily. Deylin gave us ideas of beaches to visit and this was helpful along with other excursions one could do. We would definitely come back again. We also felt very safe with gated community and night guard.

    Wade2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is so perfectly designed! The view is GORGEOUS: monkeys in the trees around 6a, the ocean all day, then sunset and later so many stars! The plunge pool was such a treat! The kitchen was well stocked. We asked for breakfast to be delivered each day which was wonderful. We slept with the doors open at night which was lovely. We only needed the AC during our daytime nap. We loved swimming and lunch at San Juanillo beach. And body surfing at Playa Guiones followed by beers at Olga’s Bar on Playa Pelada. We did have dinner in downtown Ostional which was good but the ceviche at Dos Brisas and Coco Bolo in San Juanillo was GREAT! We hope to come back next year!!

    Andres2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot day enough wonderful things about this home and property. The pictures DO NOT do it justice, it far exceeded our expectations. This was our third visit to coastal Guanacaste and this was the best rental yet. The placement in the hillside affords unparalleled views and an opportunity to experience local wildlife much more intimately. The house is very clean, modern, and well equipped; especially the kitchen. We were able to cook daily without difficulty and it was such a pleasure to have an appropriate sized coffee cup!! The bathroom is large with a great shower. We were hard pressed to leave the beautiful porch most days. With the pool to cool off and stunning views; we didn’t feel like we were missing anything being off the beach. Deylin assisted us promptly and graciously when we accidentally locked ourselves out in the dark on the first night - yikes! Highly recommend the home and location!

  • This place is beautiful! Amazing views from the patio and very private. The pool was a perfect way to temper the heat. The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans/dishes/spices which is key because there are only a couple restaurants nearby. It's off the beaten path which is exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommend renting a 4x4 as the roads are all dirty and bumpy and depending on time of year there is a small river to drive through to get to Nosara, the closest population center. Bed is comfy, bathroom is nice, and there is a French press for coffee. Closest good size grocery store is about 15-20 min drive towards Nosara. There is a mini market and a few small restaurants and bars close to the house in Ostional. Make sure to go to Juanillo beach! It's 15 minutes north and at high tide is especially beautiful with clear waters and great swimming.

  • Deylin's place is magical. We woke up to gorgeous ocean views every morning, went for long beach walks, and saw the famous turtles lay eggs down at the beach just 5 min away. We had a car and this was an ideal base to travel along the coast to see various beach towns. The space is absolutely gorgeous and we spent a couple of days just relaxing there, reading and dipping into the pool to cool down. Highly recommended!!!

    Marbella, Provincia de Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Small beachfront Cabina, perfect for surfers
  • Our stay at this cabina in Marbella was the best part of our trip. It is a 2 min walk from a stunning, quiet beach, and it has remarkable character and charm. It was also nicer than we anticipated as Giannina’s photos on Airbnb were outdated! She has done considerable updates, especially to the exterior with a covered patio and landscaping. If you’re looking for a surfing getaway or to completely unwind and relax, stay here. It’s perfect. If you’re worried about not having WiFi, you can access the restaurant’s WiFi about a 30 second walk from the front patio, so it’s not a big deal at all!

    San Juanillo, Provincia de Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Located only 1.5 km to San Juanillo Beach, 7 Km to the popular surfing beach of Marbella and 7 km to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. Perfect for visitors that want to be close to all the attractions, but love the feel of being secluded in nature. Enjoy the many species of birds and wildlife that frequently visit the property. Archery, Yoga, and meditation are offered as add on activities on the property, as well as bike rentals so that you can discover the many fun activities in the area.
    Stay with us, enjoy the surrounding beaches and the many attractions. Then settle in to a private sanctuary surrounded by nature and be amazed by the stars at night. Nestled in the forest just 1 mile from Pacha Mama beach. You can even take a relaxing stroll to the beach down the road less traveled. We can also provide meals from our Ayurvedic Kitchen upon request. Nearby attractions include the beautiful San Juanillo waterfalls (we live at the base of the road that goes up to the waterfalls), Pacha Mama and San Juanillo Beach. Lots of fun activities in the area including horseback riding, ATV tours, boat tours, cooking, yoga, and archery classes can be arranged upon request. We are just 30 minutes by car from the surf town of Nosara/ Guiones, which is home to many restaurants, attractions and beaches. We are 7 km from Marbella beach, another nice surf spot. The neighboring town of Ostional is visited by many to watch the turtle nesting, a specular sight that is located only 7 Km from the property.
    San Juanillo is an amazing beach town that has not been influenced so much by tourism. There is a trail from our center that is 1.5 km to San Juanillo beach, which has been rated to offer one of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica. Many times you will be one of few people that stroll on this beach that is only accessible by foot. Whether you sit under an almond tree or in the tide pools, you are bound to love our local beach!
  • We enjoyed our stay at Sonia's glamping tent. The tent was spacious, the beds comfortable, and we really enjoyed the deck! Be sure to order meals with Sonia, her food is delicious! The beaches at San Juanillo are gorgeous. If you have any questions about driving directions, ask Sonia and Freddy for information. We followed google maps from Santa Cruz, and it took us on a very scenic route that would not be suitable for all cars or all drivers. We recommend this glamping experience!

    Tim & Murtha2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • My sister and I absolutely loved staying here. The location is stunning and we’ll be dreaming of waking up to birdsongs and howler monkeys for a long time. The tent was spacious and very comfortable. It didn’t even feel like a tent but it also never felt stuffy, which some rooms can. The deck is the perfect place to read and reflect. We initially didn’t plan on many meals but Sonia’s food is exquisite. She and her family were so hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed. The nearby beach is the nicest we found during our ten-day stay in Costa Rica. We highly recommend staying here and hope to be back.

    Elizabeth2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal for people who like to think outside the box and looking to reconnect. It is also a yoga center! With our 4 year old boy, we spent 4 days of pure happiness there. Located in the heart of the jungle and a 20 minute walk from the village and the beach, this enchanting place allowed us to really rest while enjoying the beach. The song of birds, locusts and monkeys is a change of scenery as surprising as it is soothing. The hosts, Sonia and Freddy are attentive and very kind. The cuisine (vegetarian and organic) is simply delicious! Even meat lovers will find their account! In short, a well thought out, clean gîte with very courteous and attentive hosts! Thank you for everything Sonia and Freddy! :-)

    Patrick2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is an incredible jungle space, built with love and care. The stargazing and peace are unmatched, as is the warmth of the hosts. We would recommend this plce to anyone!

    Milda2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place to stay. The beauty, peace and vibe are unmatched. Had the best night’s sleep I have had in a year.

    Linda2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • I can highly recommend staying in Sonias tent. We are a family of four (kids 4 and 5 years old) and we loved everything about it. Sonia also offers to cook for you (for a small amount) and we can highly recommend her very delicious food. We would love to come back one day - this was a very special experience.

  • Communication with Adriana excellent the house very beautiful and well equipped. I recommend high car to visit the area

    Allan2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Adriana and Mateo's house is beautiful, as described, everything is as beautiful as it is published. Everything is clean, the kitchen has all the necessary utensils, you just have to bring what you need to cook. Clean towels and sheets are available, the shower is perfect with hot water. Adriana always responded very fast, we even had problems with the Waze and Adriana was attentive to guide us to the house and even accompanied us part of the way to the house, they offered pizza service and we are glad we tried them because it was delicious. The only recommendation I give to tourists is to try to take a van, I do not recommend taking a sedan car because the road is ballast, they should arrive by truck even if it is not a rainy season, not only for Adriana's house but for the entire area of Marbella , San Juanillo, Ostional and surroundings. If it rains it must be 4 * 4, if it is a dry season, a high and hard suspension car will guarantee you a quiet trip without worrying about the road condition. We will definitely return to Adriana's house every time we visit the area and recommend her. Thanks Adriana and Mateo!

    Sebastian Lasaosa2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolute gem--with special host Laura that took great interest to ensure we loved our stay. Juan worked hard to keep the place clean while we were there in the dirty, dusty dry season. The place is not new or modern, but is so charming and you get entire villa for yourself with plenty of room in the treetops of the jungle. Such a great experience and terrific value in this area--and most important, my discerning wife loved it and was not ready to leave.

    Aaron2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • I loved this space! I slept so so well in the Big bed w ac in one private bedroom, the kitchen and patio are perfect. Swims w the sunrise over the infinity pool w ocean view -definite Pura Vida living w a relaxed natural vibe. The beach a short walk or hitchhike downhill is a great space to hang out and go for a coffee or smoothie at Ancient People restaurant. Thanks Laura!

    Mateo2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This property was so cool. Rustic, private little villas each with a private balcony, great little pool. The villa we stayed in had one bedroom that was separate and air conditioned; the rest of the villa + the second bedroom was not. The walk to the villa was a bit long if that's something that you care about, for us it wasn't an issue.

    Annalise2019-02-08T00:00:00Z

  • Absolutely beautiful! If you are looking for a location to enjoy the Costa Rican nature and to disconnect than this is the place for you. Laura wasn’t there but vertality was only an email away with rapide responses. Juan and the other gentleman were extremely friendly and helpful. My friends and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a true Costa Rican experience without the hustle and bustle of commercial hotels.
