Wake up to the call of the birds, howler monkeys and waves crashing... enjoy the day & night with sounds, scents and sights of the jungle & ocean... fall in love with the amazing sunset view. You can look forward to a unique and incredible indoor-outdoor living experience, wildlife encounters, private yoga with a breathtaking panorama, and great surfing - only 3min walk to the beach!!!
Sola Vista Eco Lodge is located in the pristine tropical rainforest of Punta Banco, Pavones on the South Pacific Coast where the lush green jungle meets the blue pacific ocean. A region in Costa Rica that is regarded as one of the most biologically diverse places in the world. Our lodge is perched on a ridge within a National Rainforest Reserve less than 200m from the spectacular surfing beach and charming original “pura vida” tico village. Pavones, the world famous surfspot, can be reached in 15 minutes by car. Sola Vista Eco Lodge consists of two rental bungalows each for two person. The sustainably built two-stories open-air bungalows offer you a breathtaking 360° ocean & jungle panorama. They are designed to provide you with a unique and incredible indoor-outdoor experience. The lower-level includes a bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bambu bed (high-quality matress, anti-allergic) and a separate bathroom. The rooms have very big mosquito screens, no glass windows. Through the bathroom you access the refreshing outdoor waterfall shower. The upper-floor features a fully-equipped kitchen and a multi-purpose relax, observation and yoga deck. The perfect location for birdwatching and wildlife-viewing, enjoying a private yoga class, watching the surfers or simply relaxing in the hammock. The tap water is fresh spring water with no chemicals added and save to drink – you will enjoy the noticeably fresh taste. In this immersive undisturbed environment the real luxury is living in the jungle while only walking 3 minutes to the beach for a surf. At Sola Vista Eco Lodge you‘ll most-likely encounter daily visits from various animals including whitefaced, howler and titi monkeys, agoutis, iguanas, scarlet macaws, pizotes and toucans to name a few. Sola Vista Eco Lodge fully commits to staying environmentally low-impact, ecologically sustainable and sensitive to conservation and community issues. There’s a pretty solid cell phone connection at Sola Vista Eco Lodge, but we have no Wifi at the moment. Enjoy the beauty of being disconnected and totally immerse yourself into nature! If you feel the urge to get connected, nevertheless, you can find Internet in the grocery stores of Punta Banco close by. CASA OLA Casa Ola is the bungalow a little higher up on the property and has a fantastic view of the surfing action from both levels. The morning surf check can be made from your bed, there’s no need to get out of it! From the upper level you see three different surfbreaks and spectacular sunsets. CASA SOL Casa Sol is built a bit lower on the property. It has a breathtaking sunset and awesome ocean panorama from the upper level. The lower level features a lovely jungle view. Right next to the house is a starfruit tree where the monkeys like to hang out. ACTIVITIES YOGA I am a passionate and certified yoga teacher and I am offering daily private yoga classes, customized to your personal preferences and physical constitution. I am teaching Hatha Yoga, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga for Surfers. For all levels, beginners to advanced yogis. Enjoy a unique yoga experience in the midst of nature and with a spectacular view of the ocean on the private yoga deck of your house! Connect with your body, mind and soul. Inhale the positivity of this magical place around you, exhale everything else! * The first private yoga class is offered for free for our guests! * Yoga mats and yoga blocks are provided. * Flexible timing to fit your other day’s activities. SURFING Punta Banco beach offers 5 still uncrowded and different surfspots (beach & point breaks). Best months to surf here are December-April (summer) but there are waves all-year-around. Punta Banco is still relatively unknown or underrated as most tourist surfers only come to the area in the green season when Pavones is working. Pavones hosts one of the world’s surfing wonders. It has been categorized as one of the world’s longest left-hand point breaks. It can go on from 400 to 900 meters, maybe longer if you’re lucky. The best months to surf Pavones are July-September. There are more great waves in the neighborhood but better not written about... we‘ll show you! OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO * Observe the wildlife directly from the house. * Go fishing, swim in one of the tide pools, refresh yourself at the waterfalls. * Go horse-back riding with a local guide, or just go for a long low-tide beach walk and then relax in the shade of a palm tree. * Learn how to make chocolate or cook tico style. Surfboard, bike, quad rentals and guided natural walks or horse-back riding are available in the area and can be organized for you. PUNTA BANCO Punta Banco is a peaceful little village with friendly local people and awesome “pura vida”-vibe. There are three small grocery stores and a little restaurant „Titiguana“ that serves delicious local „Casados“. SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION PROGRAM The local community is running a very successful sea turtle conservation program where guests can experience the release of hundreds of baby turtles to the ocean (depending on the season).   WHAT TO BRING Good flashlight or head lamp, sun block, hat, good hiking shoes, light weight and fast drying clothing, a basic 1st aid kit and if you have binoculars.   DIRECTIONS The best way to visit Sola Vista Eco Lodge and explore the area is definitively by car (1.5h from Golfito or Paso Canoas). We recommend to rent a 4x4 as the last hour to the coast is a dirt road with more or less potholes, depending on the season. The 150m up to our place are easily accessible all year around. Private parking is available at the property. You can also take the public bus that is driving daily to Punta Banco and walk to our lodge. CHECK-IN We, Denise and Renato, live on the property and will welcome you at Sola Vista Eco Lodge. Please let us know what time you will arrive so we can prepare the bungalow for you. Also if you wish that we fill your fridge with some basics before you arrive, e.g. juice, eggs, beers, etc.? (charged extra)
  • This place is truly wonderful. It’s a hidden secret that I don’t want to share. I stayed for 7 or 8 nights. Denise and Renato really care and are proud of the accommodations and it shows. From the check-in tour the whole stay was quite perfect. They changed towels and sheets every 2-3 days and made sure everything was going well. This place allows you to be private and quiet or interact with the guests in the other guesthouse. The open air concept can be made private by closing off curtains. There are big screens and mosquito nets but I never used the one of the bed, I didn’t see/feel any mosquitos. Even when sitting on the top lookout floor, I did not see or feel mosquitos. The bed is comfortably firm, the lounging/viewing area also has comfortable options, and the kitchen has all the necessities for basic cooking and a few extras like a blender! The outdoor shower is wonderful and the bathroom is very clean. Everything looks hand made and has great charm. The views from the top floor are spectacular (ocean, forest, birds, monkeys). The location is very quiet at night. I did not hear any noise other than nature. I could go on, but I’ll cut it short here and allow you to go and explore and discover it for yourself. I stayed with my wife. We both loved it. Definitely a single/couples place. Not a party zone, very chill, quiet, respectful.

  • Denise and Renato’s place is absolutely amazing! I can not recommend it enough! Waking up to the jungle around us was so magical and serene. The space was clean and beautiful and even better than I expected. They also gave us loads of helpful tips to make our stay even more enjoyable!

    Ashton2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay at Sola Vista Eco-lodge. As avid travelers we are always seeking new, exciting experiences and this trip was by far one of our favorite trips in life yet. Ronoldo and Denise went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy the entire time, there was no shortage of wildlife or ocean views right from our cabina, the infrastructure and ambiance of the property was beautiful inside and out, and the close proximity to the beach was the icing on the cake. If you’re looking for a peaceful surf, yoga, or wellness getaway in a remote and largely untapped paradise, I highly recommend this place!

  • We LOVED our one-week stay at Sola Vista! The sustainably built bungalow is so beautiful. It's like living in a perfectly designed tree house in the most incredible location. We enjoyed the gorgeous architecture (artfully designed circular staircase/walls/ceilings, built-in furniture, etc), the layout (love, love, love the indoor/outdoor design and especially the top floor with swinging chairs and cozy kitchen!), and the spectacular views from the private location in a jungle on a walkable hill above the town. You can see and hear the ocean (stunning sunsets!). We watched birds and monkeys (3 different breeds!) eating, playing, and hanging out in trees next to the bungalow every day. Our alarm clock was the howler monkeys. The artistic outdoor, spring-fed stone/waterfall shower was really refreshing at the end of a long, hot/humid day. The bed was really comfortable! My husband and I often have problems with backaches when we travel - but not this time. It wasn't too hard or too soft - and didn't smell. (If you've been to remote parts of Costa Rica before - you'll know that finding a like-new comfortable bed, that doesn't smell damp and moldy, is even harder than spotting a sloth!) . Denise and Renato were outstanding hosts. They were responsive and shared helpful communication before/during our trip. We'd sometimes come home to treats like local fresh citrus fruits and the in-between cleanings and dry bedsheets were much appreciated since it was so humid. While we didn't get the chance to take a yoga class with Denise, others on our volunteer trip did and loved it. Next time we'll be sure to schedule that. Stay at Sola Vista - you'll enjoy every minute of it!

  • The peaceful house is a divine place! Perfectly equipped with everything and more than one needs - there is also a box with toys for children

    Morena2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Pacifica is one of a kind! Punta Banco is a very special town in Costa Rica, not many places like this exist anymore. It is a beautiful village with beautiful people. This home is comfortable, clean, has ocean views from the upstairs deck, and also allows you to be immersed in the local culture. You are steps away from the beach on one side, and the rain forest on the other side. Enjoy fun surfing right out front of the house, go for a dip in the fresh water river, play soccer at the plaza, rent a bike, or go for long low tide beach walks. The house provides all the amenities with some great touches like a blender for smoothies, a comfortable hammock, fans for cooling down, a great deck space for yoga or entertaining. The caretakers of the house are very reliable, trustworthy, and helpful. Highly recommended!

    David2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Easy process communicating with Christian. We had a great time staying at the cabin; felt like a true local. Steps away from the surf break, enjoyed that the most!!

    Micah2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was one of my favourites so far - Christian was super helpful getting us there, even talking over the phone to the taxi drivers! Beautiful location, good surf, as well as clean and tidy place. The hammocks were the best part - swinging in them and drifting off to sleep after the days adventures. Highly reccomend!!

    Jasmine2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • My stay in Punta Banca at Christians cozy cabin was absolutely magical. Best described as a beach house, it by no means is "luxury" - however I really had everything I needed to make delicious meals, enjoy a good sleep and have a beautiful rinse off in the outdoor shower after long days at the beach. Also, the indoor shower has hot water which is perfect for the rainy days. The kitchen does not have a traditional oven but it has a perfectly working gas stove top and toaster oven, plus the blender was perfect for morning smoothies. Easily accessible and super safe this little town is surrounded by amazing locals that are always willing to lend an extra hand and show you around. Steps from the beach, and perfect waves - another favourite was the tide pools - just a short walk away from the house! This place is really remotely magical but still close to Pavones which is a bonus. The wildlife however was the cherry on top for me, from the titis, to the howler monkeys and the sounds of the red macaws flying over head I really got the full tropical experience. Communication with Christian was also amazing, he answered all my questions quickly and gave great recommendations. I had a chance to meet him briefly and he was super friendly and really harbours a wealth of knowledge about Costa Rica I was grateful for. Thanks for having me, I will be back!

    Lynne2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • I love this cabin. It’s charming, a mostly open air design that flows into the gorgeously landscaped outdoors and lush jungle all around. 30 second walk to the beach. Functional kitchen that separates the two bedrooms. Great warm water shower too. It is unique to my Costa Rica experiences for several reasons. It’s technically quite remote, yet it’s incredibly easy to get to (by Costa Rica standards) even by bus. It is 7km from pavones, a bit far to walk but a nice bike ride (rentals available in pavones) and the bus stops at the cabin twice a day as well. Stores with (very) basic sundries in walking distance. Also bring cash, nearest atm is a long journey. Pavones/Punta Banco is a lovely refuge of mostly undeveloped wilderness and wide open coastline and world class surfing. A great little community of friendly and trustworthy people, plus endless fauna and flora. I look forward to spending more time there. Christian was a great host and immensely helpful with my (many, many) questions.

    Punta Banco, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    Beautiful open concept home in the village of Punta Banco, just steps from the ocean. Quiet setting, ocean view, nature, wildlife, and world class surfing!
    Welcome to a beautiful recently built open-air concept home, located in the village of Punta Banco (6 km from the main Pavones break). The design is by no means rustic, however, this is not a luxury home. It is simple, well finished and clean with 2 comfortable double beds, and one single bed. A well equipped kitchen opens onto a large deck with ocean view. There is no air conditioning as the entire home is open air. Think fancy eco camping in regards to critters that come and go. Showers are clean and offer a non-heated refreshing spring water experience. The house has great views and is less than a 100m walk from the ocean, surrounded by great wildlife and backed by forest. Please note, due to the high deck, the house is not suitable for people with young children who do not have an awareness of heights. The balcony railings could be climbed through. The house comes all set with linens, towels, full kitchen and accessories, 3 bedrooms (although the single bed takes up one room entirely!), bathroom and a large open air deck to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.
    This part of Costa Rica is for people who want to get away from the regular tourist trappings and really enjoy the beauty and nature of the country. We took all the photos in this posting and all were taken within 100M of the house! The village of Punta Banco is small and includes several small grocery stores and a Soda (family run restaurant). Wireless internet is available for purchase at the Soda. Some of the activities in the area include surfing, hiking, snorkeling, horseback riding, yoga, biking and swimming in the local rivers.
  • Mark's house is absolutely amazing. It is built and placed in the way that it becomes one with the nature. Mark is very good host, even he is not phisically there, quick at responding and always trying to help, allways searching for the solution. People at Punta Banco, they are one of the kindness people at the world. Our family with three small kids just enjoyed there

    Tatjana2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, the photos are completely in line with reality. Punta Banco is a village that has not been ruined by tourism. The house is near the beach, you only have to cross the sock field; surfing directly in front of the house, left and right waves and the only spot in the area without rocks. The house with a beautiful veranda. Hummingbirds fly over the terrace, and when you sit down you will see a lot of birds. Definitely recommended if you like simplicity, tranquility, beach and nature: pura vida!

    Marleen2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, the concept of the open house is great. It feels good very quickly and we do not want to leave ... 5/5

    Geoffrey2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • An outstanding place in an outstanding little spot that just won’t let you leave. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and kept extending it a few times, to the point of seriously considering never leaving. 😊 I have nothing but the highest praises for Mark’s place and everything it offers to its guests. I will definitely be back, very soon.

    Dalibor2019-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Mark's place was great! The house has a very nice view on the ocean and a beautiful garden. The people in Punta Banco are really amazing! I really recommend coming here.

    Brigitte2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • If you enjoy being in the middle of nature and would like to know the real pura vida, you have to stay in this house. You will see and hear plenty of animals. The beach, where you can take a lot of good waves, is right accross the soccer pitch. And the atmosphere in Punta Banco is really amazing.

    Elien2019-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Perfect building integrated to the nature. Wide open area on the second floor where I felt so well cooking and resting for the next surfing session in pavones, 15 min away by car. Recomend that for sure!

    Pavones, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    Enjoy a luxurious view of nature and a sweet breeze from a simple but convenient house, 1 minute from the beach. Mango and banana tree in the garden, horses in the adjoining gardens. The best of Pura vida comes together in this house; life at its purest and sweetest.
    Beautiful little house only 60 meters from the desolated beach. Pura vida comes to life here, in the small community of Punta Banco where people work together to keep their village pure and natural. -hot shower -wooden handmade furniture -great ambiance -big kitchen with all the proper utensils -long stay is very welcome -price can be discussed -sea turtle reservation -small shops and local restaurants around the corner -safe environment (people, I mean, the snakes and spiders I can't account for) -only 10 minutes from the second longest left hander in the world: Pavones. -2 bedrooms, one with big bed, and one with bunkbed We can arrange for a car to come pick you up from Golfito airport. This costs $80. It's an hour flight from San Jose, and from there an hour and a half by car. No airco: the ocean breeze flows through the house. Ventilation fans in bedrooms. Swimming pool not needed: the Río Claro is nearby, where the kids go swimming, also tidepools and the Pacific Ocean! Surf classes can be arranged with an English speaking ESP approved teacher who will take you to the best spots.
  • A wonderful location in Punta Banco. You get a chance to learn how it is to disconnect from the fast pace of modern life. A very rural setting... no internet and no cell service. Just what I was looking for! Bring a few good books and some candles. Take a short stroll to the beach for sunrise with your cup of coffee. There is a wonderful beach just at the end of the driveway with a wooden deck to watch the sunset. Bring food and cook healthy meals... or drive about 15 minutes to Pavones if you want to eat breakfast,lunch or dinner prepared for you. Truly the perfect Pura Vida experience!

    J John2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great short stay at Ellis’s place. She was quick to reply to any questions before we got there and it’s just as she described. Very relaxing quiet place in a small village with a beautiful beach at the end of the driveway.

    Alan2018-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We went to Ellis' cute house to work on a construction in Punta Banco. The place was very clean, very well furnished and great located. We were litteraly 100 yards from the ocean. Thank you for your kindness and I hope I come backsoon. Best,

    Bertrand2017-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house was amazing. Ellis was more than helpful! we took our little son for his first trip out of the country, this place was perfect. The little village is filled with lovely people who love children. The surf was amazing and the beach was beyond beautiful. Pure vida....

    Nichole2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Ellis! the spot is awesome! a few meters to the beach...neighbors are super cool! and the rustic tienda within one minute walking distance makes dinners and groceries really convenient. I only have one negative comment. I just wished i could have stayed two more weeks to reap some of the harvest off that giant mango tree out front! t'was loaded with fruit.:) thank you so much! all the best!

    joe2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ellis wasnt at the place but Jose was really nice. The place is beautiful and had everithing we need and it is so close to the beach we couldnt believe it.

    Marianela2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location. We loved staying here. Thanks Ellis!

    Charandev2016-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying in the basic but very nice house! The kitchen and dining area are open air so you can enjoy watching nature (fire flies at night, squirrels and iguanas during the day)! There is a basic supermarkt next door where you can buy food for cooking a simple meal. We are travelling with public transport which made it a bit more complicated to get there. We werd coming by boat from Rincon de Osa (whales and plenty of dolphins) and arrived at 11am only to find that the 10am bus had left and that the next bus was at 3pm. The info we got about transport turned out not to be up to date. In the end we decided to take a taxi so we could still enjoy the rest of the day. Jose, the neighbour, was there to welcome us and turned out to be very helpful. The other neighbour gave us some fresh coco nuts just to say 'welcome'. After hiking and kajakking in Corcovado and the Golfo Dulce we enjoyed spending some lazy days on an almost empty beach. Thank you, Ellis, for letting us stay at your place.

  • A beautifully private, well cared for place in Ponta Blanco ....On the edge of the jungle in a great surfing spot. So many tropical flowers in the tropical garden… The outdoor shower was just amazing.... Christian is very responsive… And so helpful. The combination of having private bedrooms with doors and the other part of the house being outdoors but covered was an experience of being in nature all the time. Got to visit with some beautiful animals .....The song of the jungle was always present...

    Deb2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay, close to waves, beaches, friends and a short drive to the supermarket. Excellent communication, safe, secure and very comfortable :)

    Raynier2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible place to stay in Punta Banco. The house is tucked back off the main road making it very private and tranquil. You dont have the dust that comes from being right on the road also. The mature garden is beautiful and supplies lots of shade, fresh fruit and wildlife (birds, iguanas, monkeys, butterflies etc.) The open layout of the house is great. The house stays cool with lots of shade and quality fans. Short walk to everything... beach, store, restaurants, swimming hole. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

    Punta Banco, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    Casa Sueño Tropical ist das private Ferienhaus unserer Familie im Regenwald von Costa Rica. Es bietet einen einzigartigen Blick auf die OSA Halbinsel und den Pazifik. Hier sieht man mehr Tiere von der Terrasse als in vielen Nationalparks. Warum es uns hier so gut gefällt: - Natur pur (Affen, Nasenbären, Faultiere, Aras) - Schutzprojekt für Meeresschildkröten - Yoga, Surfen, Boogyboard (Boards vorhanden) - Reit-Tour ins Indianer Reservat - Kaum Tourismus und nette Locals Jetzt Bilder ansehen!
    Casa Sueño Tropical verfügt über eine Fläche von ca. 150m² und ist umgeben von 1ha tropischen Garten und Regenwald. Es hat zwei getrennte Schlafzimmer, eine offene Küche mit Bar und Meerblick und ein Badezimmer mit Dschungelblick. Zusätzlich bietet es ein 60m² großes Holzdeck mit Essplatz (8 Personen), Sofa, Hänge- und Yogamatten. Zudem gibt es eine Outdoor-Gartendusche, sowie einen überdachten Barbecue-Bereich mit Grill und selbstgebautem Lehmofen. Die beiden Schlafzimmer sind jeweils mit Queen-Size-Betten (1.60 x 2.00m) und Moskitonetzen ausgestattet. Für Kinder gibt es zusätzlich noch ein Doppelbett (1.40m x 1.80m) Die großen Fenster mit verstellbaren Holzlamellen und die großen Terrassentüren ermöglichen ein angenehm kühles Schlafklima. Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet mit Elektrogeräten, Geschirr- und Kochutensilien, bis hin zur Espressomaschine. Neben den landesüblichen 110V gibt es eine Steckdose mit 220V für das schnelle Aufladen von Kameras oder Mobiltelefonen.
    Punta Banco ist der südlichste mit dem Auto erreichbare Punkt Costa Ricas. Das kleine Dorf, 7km südlich von Pavones gelegen, hat sich seinen ursprünglichen Charakter behalten – Massentourismus ist hier unbekannt. Ein paar Häuser, zwei kleine Lebensmittelläden, eine Kirche und ein Fußballplatz direkt am Strand gelegen. Super nette Ticos, die sich abends beim Fußball, Bier oder einer kleinen Fiesta treffen. Die Strände laden zu einsamen Spaziergängen und zum Surfen / Boogieboarden ein. Anschließend erfrischt man sich im schattigen Bach mit Wasserfall.
  • Axel's place is unbelievably beautiful, a real dream house. Actually we planned to travel 4 weeks in Panama, but attracted by the pictures of this place we decided to spend one week in Punta Banco. And we were not disappointed, in fact it was the highlight of our trip! The terrace is the centerpoint of the house and its view is so stunning that we spent most of the time just there, watching in awe animals passing by. And how they did! Sloths, bats, snakes, agutis, coatis, birds, very intersting insects and once even a tayra, we were really lucky. During sunset pelicans and aras flew by behind the big palm tree. I am not exaggerating when saying it felt like being right into a Disney movie setting. We arrived by bus and taxi and did everything by foot and taxi, which was perfect and easy for us, but one should know that the way up hill to the house is very steep. For us a welcomed work out each day, sometimes challenging in the tropical heat, so better to go early in the morning or afternoon. Communication with Axel was smooth, easy and informative. On spot Bing took care of us, very helpful and very friendly and with patience when I tried to improve my Spanish. We are so happy that we were guests in Axel's dream house - thank you for everything. Pura Vida!

    Whether you are an Eco tourist or an avid surfer, Casa Swell is the place for you. Located on the private acre of pristine land we call "Vida Carolina" is where you will find your paradise. Only a stones throw away from your empty beach with tide pools and perfect swimming areas for all. A quick walk and you will be surfing the world famous Pavones point break. Take a day to relax on the property and you can enjoy local wildlife such as monkeys, toucans, parrots, wild turkeys, and many more.
    Casa Swell is a very unique house located on the Vida Carolina property. The house has a skatepark connected on the side that also functions as a garage. There is bathroom and small bedroom downstairs with air conditioning and screened in windows. Outside the bedroom is a full kitchen with a nice patio attached on the side that features an epic custom outdoor shower and hammock . Upstairs there is spacious outdoor living room / hangout complete with a bar overlooking the jungle, couch to relax on, and a hammock. The house is very secure and has bars on the windows and over the door. All of the finishings in the house are made out of teak wood locally sourced from the property. The ramp was custom built by some friends and even if you dont skate it is something to see. Nobody will be skating the ramp during your stay unless you want to so you dont have to worry about that. Vida Carolina has three houses on it and this one is the newest addition. Each one of the houses is oriented away from each other and are stand alone structures. The only thing they share is a driveway but they all have separate parking areas. One of the homes will be occupied by the host.
    A very private and quite neighborhood surrounds the house. One of the most popular and tasty restaurants know as La Pina is extremely close! There is also a typical costa rican restaurant extremely close by known as Banana Point. The beach which has a great swimming area, tide pools, and waves to play in is very close to the house and private.

  • For our fifth trip to Costa Rica we decided to explore a more remote area of Costa Rica. While the road to Pavones required navigating several miles of dirt road, we were richly rewarded by a comfortable stay at Trevor's in the middle of a beautiful tropical oasis. Pictures do not do justice to the scenic location, lush gardens, and beautiful interior. We were tickled by the digitally controlled shower temperature and whole house AC. We were an easy walking distance to the beach and equally close to one of the nicer restaurants in this small surfing village. Nearby you will find a couple of groceries stores, a few other restaurants and a vendor selling fresh fruit near the beach. One of the most pleasant features of our stay was watching, from the front porch, a small troop of squirrel monkeys passing close by both afternoons we were there, around 3:30-4:00. We had a great time and highly recommend this place. It is a great place to stay for adventurers and surfers who appreciate a warm shower and a cool, comfortable place to sleep.

    Andrew2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our group of four had an amazing time staying in Trevor’s vacation home. It was great coming back from a long surf to a well air conditioned home where we could comfortably cook in the full kitchen. Early mornings laying underneath the shaded hammock with a coffee in hand, a window on the high ceiling with dreamy views of the stars at night, and good times hanging out at the skate spot on the property... we couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. Thank you Trevor for the swift communication when we needed help. All time!!

  • Pascal was very accommodating for us. The place is quite remote and rustic, but if you follow all of his instructions and connect with him on WhatsApp he and his assistants will do everything possible to have a nice stay. Because the internet is not high speed (and this is not his fault - it's the region!) I would recommend to get a costa rican SIM card in case of emergencies. I happened to get sick while there from a previous med condition and needed antibiotics- there is a pharmacy in Laural, 40min away, but a real clinic is quite a bit further and we ended up having to leave earlier than expected, unfortunately. Everyone in the town knows each other and are very kind. We would love to come back with 100% health. Also you might want to talk to him about renting quads or 4x4 cars to get up the hill. The ones I found in san jose were so expensive, but the key to making the most of costa rica..we found..was to connect to the people and let them help you! Thanks for sharing your sanctuary with us!

  • We stayed at Casa Mangotiti for one wonderful month. The location of the house was absolutely spectacular, perched at the tree line of a cloud forest overlooking the ocean. A view that just doesn't get old. Don't take the 4x4 comment lightly, you absolutely need one to get up there, especially if it's wet. You could park at the bottom of the hill and walk about 10-15 minutes up to the house, but if you're hauling groceries that might be a pain. With all the windows open, it felt like you were outside with the comfort of a roof to keep the rain out. The kitchen and bathrooms sufficed, nothing fancy. Some of the appliances and house operations are finicky but you can get them to work if you take the time. There were plenty of bugs and geckos around the house, sometimes an army of ants would come in after a rain. They weren't much of an issue for us, we got some bites but nothing to fuss about. If you close the windows early enough you can significantly reduce the number of bugs that stay the night with you. I appreciated how many spaces around the house there were to relax, each with a different view and feel to it. Overall a quaint wooden home that I am so glad I got to spend so much time in. Oh and Pavones (Punta Banco) is an awesome very remote, undeveloped area. I don't think we saw other tourists our entire stay. The community was very helpful and sweet to us.

    Jordan2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Casa Mangotiti. The jungle setting is beautiful and we were greeted each morning by scarlet macaws, monkey howls, and beautiful migrating parrots. We loved the quiet, remote location and enjoyed the great exercise to walk up the hill each day. We felt very in touch with nature, but also very comfortable as the house has ceiling fans for the dry season and a fridge to keep the beers cold! Pascal was very responsive and helpful when we had questions and made all information about the house very clear. We hope to come back soon!

    Emma2019-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Valérie2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • An amazingly respite from the crowds and hustle bustle. Loved waking up to the tropical birds flying by the kitchen for breakfast and fresh star fruit and mangoes outside. The view is amazing. It’s a bit of a trek to get to, but wonderful once you arrive. Beds are comfortable. Pascal is extremely responsive and a wonderful host. We look forward to coming back.

    Deborah2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Although getting to the Mangotiti house through a track can be the first times a bit difficult, once you get to the house you find a wonderful place! Incredible views, a well-kept garden, a beautiful wooden house, spacious and comfortable, and the tranquility of being in the jungle, only accompanied by the sound of birds .... tranquility and absolute peace !!! The town of Punta Banco, its people, nature, the sea ... also make your stay unforgettable. We have loved knowing this corner of Costa Rica!

  • We had an excellent stay in this house. It was sparkling clean and equipped with everything you need. I was there with my 2 young children and my wife. It was great for the little ones because there is plenty of space, it is air-conditioned and has a large garden. You don't walk 5 minutes to the sea. It is close enough that you can hear the noise in the evening. The house has a beautiful terrace and 2 more beautiful balconies. The bedroom is huge. The beds comfortable and big. You can go shopping in Pavones or Puerto Pilon. Both can be reached quickly by car. The check in went smoothly. We were given tips for trips or where to buy fresh fish from the local fishermen. Someone was always available for questions. I would come back here anytime.

    Pavones, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    Rainforest hideaway in the hills above Pavones! Wake up to views of the lush jungle and sounds of abundant wildlife, while enjoying your stay in our beautiful private wooden cabin with ample space and balcony. We can organize a variety of local activities and experiences such as surfing (boards available) fishing trips, horseback riding, visits to indigenous villages, rainforest hikes, and more!
    The cabin is located up in the densely forested hills between the surf mecca Pavones (10 mins drive) and the tranquil town Punta Banco. You will have a private bathroom with hot shower. As an eco-friendly farm we utilize clean composting toilets with a nice jungle view.
  • Very good moments spent in the cabin as well as with Suzanne, Tom and their little boy ... It is a cocoon in the middle of nature ... for nature lovers, out of time places and for those who want to disconnect!

  • We loved our stay in Pavones! Tom and Sue were warm and friendly hosts and their hospitality was really exceptional. The place was a true hidden paradise with all kinds of jungle animals on trees while drinking morning coffee. :) It’s also a great detox for busy city life! Would return anytime.

    Sonja2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at that beautifull place.

    Karen2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time with Sue and Tom during our 10 night stay! My husband and I have often wondered what it would be like to pack up and move to Pavones and staying with Tom and Sue gave us a glimpse into what that life may be like (we loved it)! Tom and Sue’s place is located on a charming road with amazing views and tons of wildlife. The road has some steepness to it which is great for a workout but you will definitely need a 4x4 if you’re driving or, even better, a quad. Our room was clean, spacious, and located on the edge of the jungle. Unfortunately our main reason for visiting Pavones, the wave, wasn’t exactly happening while we were there but the wildlife more than made up for the lack of surf! As others have said, there is plenty of wildlife to be observed by just sitting on the deck – we saw toucans, spider and howler monkeys, coatis, and a kinkajou to name a few. I have never slept so well anywhere, thanks to the loud buzzing of the jungle at night. Tom and Sue are wonderful hosts especially with their extensive knowledge of local ecology. They were super patient answering our million questions and even led us on a couple hikes around their property – it was like having our own private naturalists My husband and I left our stay with Tom and Sue feeling happy, super relaxed, and inspired and missing their sweet family as you would after a visit with old friends.

    Melody2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay! Tom&Sue are very nice hosts and helped us a lot. The room with balcony are very nice and the bed comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook. If you dont like to be in the village and to enjoy the nature beside the surfsessions then its a perfect stay! A 4x4 is defenitly recommended. It was a super stay,thx Tom&Sue

  • We had great days with Sue and Tom. Everything was as written in the description and much better. They were very nice hosts, gave us good tips and gave us some information about the animals. You can watch some animals directly from the balcony. We recommend anyone who is looking for a bit of peace and just want to relax, spend a few days in the great environment.

    Michaela2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tom and Sue are great host. Both of them are very hospitable and are incredibly knowledgeable about nature and surf. Their work with Lapas and environmental conservation is remarkable. The place is very peaceful and surrounded by nature. Highly recommended. Thank You

  • Jamie's place is in a super location. Because of where is is located off the road and the incredible landscaping, it seems like you are in the jungle when in fact you are walking distance to everything. The river is not to be missed and is beautiful located just next to the property. The Studio was super clean, soft blankets and quality sheets. Excellent water pressure and very lovely hot water! I love that they compost and recycle. There is an outdoor shower and a locked super safe closet for boards. There is also a safe in the studio and the location felt very safe and Jaime and her husband are nearby and take wonderful care of the property and guest. We will definitely be back when in Pavones!

    Small and confortable bedroom, queen size bed, with private bathroom and A/C, in a friendly guest house. 150 m to the beach and the surf spot. Close to all comodities. Shared kitchen, living area.
  • We had a very nice, fun and cool time in Pavones and in the accommodation of Marvin. We got great tips, Marvin was very helpful (but doesn't speak English) and even took us to "his turtles". He and his friends / colleagues rescue baby turtles and then bring them into the sea - we were able to be part of this great campaign. To Pavones: Small, beautiful place for surfing - Pura Vida. There are 4 small supermarkets, a couple of restaurants (not always open) and no bank. You can withdraw money in supermarkets using a credit card, but 10% will be charged for each removal. Amy / Emy offers some activities such as surf classes, yoga (very, very cool) and hikes. There is a surf shop where you can buy or rent boards - $ 15 per day (credit card will be kept for the time - but can always be picked up). There is a bus from Golfito to Pavones twice a day - the return trip to Golfito is from Mon-Sun at 6 a.m. and at 12.30 p.m. Can only recommend the small place and also the accommodation of Marvin.

There are toucans and macaws that show up in the trees, so take the time and swing in one of the many hammocks. The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking gear and utensils. And they have the traditional Tico coffee maker, the Chorreador! Three minute walk to the beach and surfboards to rent on site. Marvin is attentive, easy to reach via text, and always willing to help out with questions. I stayed two months and can’t wait to go back :) Enjoy!

  • Christian provided a beautiful experience in the coastal village of Punta Banco, with the Airbnb only steps away from a clean, secluded beach with gorgeous views of the nearby jungle and mountains. The house itself had a lovely garden, private outdoor shower and several hammocks that allowed for total relaxation. Christian gave us several suggestions for activities, and even helped us coordinate a mountain hike as well as surfing and horseback riding sessions with local facilitators. His knowledge of the area and its many inhabitants, both human and animal, was impressive and made for an enriching and rewarding vacation. If you are looking to go “off the grid” and find peace of mind while avoiding tourist traps in Costa Rica, this is the place to go. Pura Vida indeed!

  • The cabin is even much better than we expected. There is an open kitchen, a big bedroom, an indoor bathroom as well as a lovely outdoor shower surrounded by flowers...we had everything we needed and much more. Punta banco is a small, quiet village and during the night you hear nothing but the sound of the waves and some animals. In our garden we had cute little animals and even saw some parrots flying around (which is very unusual). It does not even take you a minute to reach the beautiful beach which is perfect for surfing. We would definitely recommend this place to nature lovers and those who are looking for a more authentic experience away from the bigger cities.

    Punta Banco, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    SPECTACULAR OPEN-AIR BUNGALOW - a Yogi, Surfer & Wildlife Lover’s Paradise! Wake up to the call of the birds, howler monkeys and waves crashing... enjoy the day and night with sounds, scents and sights of the jungle & ocean... fall in love with the amazing sunset view. You can look forward to a unique and incredible indoor-outdoor living experience, wildlife encounters, private yoga with a breathtaking panorama, and great surfing - only 3min walk to the beach!!!
    Sola Vista Eco Lodge is located in the pristine tropical rainforest of Punta Banco, Pavones on the South Pacific Coast where the lush green jungle meets the blue pacific ocean. A region in Costa Rica that is regarded as one of the most biologically diverse places in the world. Our lodge is perched on a ridge within a National Rainforest Reserve less than 200m from the spectacular surfing beach and charming original “pura vida” tico village. Pavones, the world famous surfspot, can be reached in 15 minutes by car. Sola Vista Eco Lodge consists of two rental bungalows, each for two person. The sustainably built two-stories open-air bungalows offer you a breathtaking 360° ocean and jungle panorama. They are designed to provide you with a unique and incredible indoor-outdoor experience. The lower-level includes a bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bambu bed (high-quality matress, anti-allergic) and a separate bathroom. The rooms have very big mosquito screens (no glass windows). Through the bathroom you access the refreshing outdoor waterfall shower. The upper-floor features a fully-equipped kitchen and a multi-purpose relax, observation and yoga deck. The perfect location for birdwatching and wildlife-viewing, enjoying a private yoga class, watching the surfers or simply relaxing in the hammock. The tap water is fresh spring water with no chemicals added and save to drink – you will enjoy the noticeably fresh taste. In this immersive undisturbed environment the real luxury is living in the jungle while only walking 3 minutes to the beach for a surf. At Sola Vista Eco Lodge you‘ll most-likely encounter daily visits from various animals including whitefaced, howler and titi monkeys, agoutis, iguanas, scarlet macaws, pizotes and toucans to name a few. Sola Vista Eco Lodge fully commits to staying environmentally low-impact, ecologically sustainable and sensitive to conservation and community issues. There’s a pretty solid cell phone connection at Sola Vista Eco Lodge, but we have no Wifi at the moment. Enjoy the beauty of being disconnected and totally immerse yourself into nature! If you feel the urge to get connected, nevertheless, you can find Internet in the grocery stores of Punta Banco close by. CASA OLA Casa Ola is the bungalow a little higher up on the property and has fantastic view of the surfing action from both levels. The morning surf check can be made from your bed, there’s no need to get out of it! From the upper level you see three different surf breaks and spectacular sunsets. CASA SOL Casa Sol is built a bit lower on the property. It has a breathtaking sunset and awesome ocean panorama from the upper level. The lower level features a lovely jungle view. Right next to the house is a starfruit tree where the monkeys like to hang out. ACTIVITIES: YOGA I am a passionate and certified yoga teacher and I am offering daily private yoga classes, customized to your personal preferences and physical constitution. I am teaching Hatha Yoga, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga for Surfers. For all levels, beginners to advanced yogis. Enjoy a unique yoga experience in the midst of nature and with a spectacular view of the ocean on the private yoga deck of your house! Connect with your body, mind and soul. Inhale the positivity of this magical place around you, exhale everything else! * The first private yoga class is offered for free for our guests! * Yoga mats and yoga blocks are provided. * Flexible timing to fit your other day’s activities. SURFING Punta Banco beach offers 5 still uncrowded and different surfspots (beach & point breaks). Best months to surf here are December-April (summer) but there are waves all-year-around. Punta Banco is still relatively unknown or underrated as most tourist surfers only come to the area in the green season when Pavones is working. Pavones hosts one of the world’s surfing wonders. It has been categorized as one of the world’s longest left-hand point breaks. It can go on from 400 to 900 meters, maybe longer if you’re lucky. The best months to surf Pavones are July-September. There are more great waves in the neighborhood but better not written about... we‘ll show you! OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO: * Observe the wildlife directly from the house. * Go fishing, swim in one of the tide pools, refresh yourself at the waterfalls. * Go horse-back riding with a local guide, or just go for a long low-tide beach walk and then relax in the shade of a palm tree. * Learn how to make chocolate or cook tico style. Surfboard, bike, quad rentals and guided natural walks or horse-back riding are available in the area and can be organized for you.   PUNTA BANCO Punta Banco is a peaceful little village with friendly local people and awesome “pura vida”-vibe. There are three small grocery stores and a little restaurant „Titiguana“ that serves delicious local „Casados“. SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION PROGRAM The local community is running a very successful sea turtle conservation program where guests can experience the release of hundreds of baby turtles to the ocean (depending on the season).   WHAT TO BRING? Good flashlight or head lamp, sun block, hat, good hiking shoes, light weight and fast drying clothing, a basic 1st aid kit and if you have binoculars.   DIRECTIONS The best way to visit Sola Vista Eco Lodge and explore the area is definitively by car (1.5h from Golfito or Paso Canoas). We recommend to rent a 4x4 as the last hour to the coast is a dirt road with more or less potholes, depending on the season. The 150m up to our place are easily accessible all year around. Private parking is available at the property. You can also take the public bus that is driving daily to Punta Banco and walk to our lodge. CHECK-IN I live in a separate house on the property with my partner Renato. We will welcome you at Sola Vista Eco Lodge. Please let us know what time you will arrive so we can prepare the bungalow for you. Also if you wish that we fill your fridge with some basics before you arrive, e.g. juice, eggs, beers, etc.? (charged extra)
  • We found paradise! This place is incredible! The pictures can’t do the experience justice as they can’t possibly give you the feeling of the balmy, perfect temperature or show you how you will be able to see different groups of monkeys from your hammock every day (howlers, white-faced, and squirrel monkeys). You will also see Macaws, Tucons, and a variety of other tropical species. The sea water was warmer than I thought possible and the local restaurants (soda) served the most amazing, fresh fish. Make sure you drive there during the day as it is a beautiful drive. I have traveled far and wide and this was my favorite experience, so far.

  • Wow! The treehouses are beautifully set up. If you are driving don't let the drive through to Punta Banco throw you off what's a few dirt road kilometers when you arrive in a little corner of paradise. Quiet friendly area good restaurants or the treehouse is fully equipped to do your own cooking. The hosts may even surprise you with fresh banana bread! The screened in bedroom area keeps all the little critters away. You can surf , walk to the little village for groceries. Or drive to nearby Povanes for a bit more variety in groceries. You have miles of beach for walking and watching the surfers do their thing. Don't miss out on this experience it's so worth it!

  • Dear Denise, dear Renato, It doesn't get any better! You have fulfilled a dream and it coincides with our

    Stephan2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • By far the nicest place in Punta Banco, surrounded by the jungle and with a great view to the ocean and the waves. The lodging is already an experience for itself. There was nothing missing.

    Désirée2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Sola Vista for three day’s. We should have stayed longer. The view from the bungalow is stunning. On one side you face the ocean (including the surfspots) and on the other side the jungle. We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the jungle and ocean. The kitchen is very well equipped and we missed nothing. The bungalows and the interior are designed very lovely. Denise and Renato are great hosts. They shared fresh fruits, spices, juices and even cake with us and gave us good advices what to see and to do in Punta Banco.

  • The perfect place for a surf vacay! You can’t beat the location! My husband and I came for a little Valentine’s getaway weekend and Dror and Gabriel were super helpful and accommodating, allowing for an early check-in and giving us local surf tips! Cabin is fully suited with every amenity you would need and then some! Highly recommend and will only stay here for future trips to Pavones!

    Kelly2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • the place was cute and charming. perfect for my wife and i to have a romantic surfing vaca. all we needed. Dror and her local contact Gabriel are very attentive and helpful.

    David2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice place to stay in, located right across the street from the beach and right beside a surfboard shop. There are restaurants and a general store within walking distance the driving is easy the location on the map is accurate. The house itself is unique with two bedrooms and one bathroom more than enough room for two couples or a family of four to stay in spread out over two floors. You have facilities to cook if you want to or you have restaurants nearby which is what we did. There's two hammocks on the front porch and sort of like a bed day couch that you can lay down on after surfing all day. This is a very nice place and it is very very clean we would stay there again without question.

    Marty2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Epic location. Perfect for surfing!

    Leane2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Dror’s place. It is literally right in front of the wave. I caught the best waves of my life in Pavones by far. Dror’s is right in the heart of town and a convenient walk to the restaurants which are all pretty good. The tacos at Tico Mex next door are awesome. I’m already planning a return trip to Pavones and will be looking to stay at Dror’s. 🤙🏼

    Eddie2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, constant contact by host with helpful hints, referrals to locals and a beautiful cabins from heaven! Pura vida!

    Casa Suerte is a little beach house located close to the ocean and the famous wave. You’ll love it because of the location, ocean view, privacy, and the unique comfortable design.
    Casa Suerte is perfect to enjoy Pavones. It is so close to the surf yet tucked away so you feel very private surrounded by beautiful nature and garden.
    Casa Suerte is located a few steps from Pavones famous left wave. There are 3 supermarkets, a liquor store a bakery and a restaurant very close by. Cafe de la Suerte and the surf shop are 500 meters along the beach. Yoga classes, natural art workshops, bike rentals, massages, horse back riding, bird watching and nature hikes are popular activities among travelers (when there is no surf 😜).
  • We loved our stay at Casa Suerte. Great space, great location, great town. Hadas was the perfect hostess. We had everything we needed and more. Loved the outdoor shower and casita. The cafe was so good! Try the fresh juice.

    Allyson2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Suerte is a gem. It was not only charming and so creatively constructed, but also very comfortable with all the amenities that we needed for our stay. The outdoor shower will forever be a favorite! Hadas was a wonderful host and we also loved eating at their cafe, Cafe Suerte. Anyone staying in Pavones would be lucky (suerte) to stay at Casa Suerte.

    Tranquilo Studios2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended we had an unforgettable experience at home luck excellent location and treatment of our hosts

    Luis Eduardo2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Romantic, unique little getaway, has everything you need (AC, comfortable bed, equipped kitchen outside, hammock, outdoor shower). We loved the place. It’s so close to the beach, and a short walk away from the shops and restaurants around. Perfect location to stay if you want to surf and like to stay somewhere a bit more remote and authentic. Driving a bit further south down the coast leads you to beautiful deserted black-sand beaches and the nature is just stunning. Would highly recommend.

    Laura2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise found.

    Andy2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Hear the waves crash while you relax in the best beach cabin! We spent most of our time on the deck relaxing in the hammock or doing yoga. Made some delicious smoothies using the fruit and yogurt (from the corner store) in the blender they provide on the deck. Cooking materials were more than enough to have us making most meals at home, sitting out overlooking the horses walk by and jungle. It was a short <2min walk to the beach, and we got surfable waves every day. Hadas and her partner were so welcoming and helpful and there’s lots of cool touches in the casita that make you feel you are on a luxury retreat.

    Erin2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Casa Suerte was awesome. We loved the outdoor kitchen and bathroom, in general we found the casa and it's interior really beautiful. The location was perfect for us, close to the beach, but also set into the beautiful nature with trees to provide shade. Hadas and Ran were really helpful and caring, they even provided us with a surfboard and some really delicious cookie upon arrival.

    Samira2019-03-01T00:00:00Z
