  • Amazing home, location and hospitality! We had a great stay in Punta Islita, and the treehouse was a perfect escape to be secluded in the jungle. Enjoyed seeing monkeys right from our deck! Great cleaning service as well which came every morning and left the house very clean. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting Punta Islita area! Beach is just a short walk, as well as multiple great restaurants and small market located in town. Thanks Ruth for helping us have a great vacation!

  • This was BY FAR one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at. Not only was Ruth super responsive and helpful, but she provided several resources and input to aid us in discovering the area. Doris was super sweet and helpful as well. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a gorgeous and novel Costa Rican getaway!

  • There are two reasons why it’s surprising I’m writing a review. First, because I rarely if ever write reviews. Second, because I don’t want the place to become too popular so that its hard to get a reservation in the future. However, I feel its my duty to let people know that the place is even better than it looks. The whole layout is spectacular and the location is wonderfully remote (hard to get to, but very little tourist creep which Ive found to be quite rare). You wont regret a stay there

  • Punta islita is awesome. Quiet and peaceful. The restaurant close to the house is delicious. The house is super cool and is in the jungle. So that’s a cool experience. We drove to a few beaches as the one by the house was a bit rocky for our young kids. Samara was close enough to get groceries and eat amazing seafood. We really enjoyed the area - very Authentic, tranquil and lush.

    Amanda2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s place is exactly as described and looks just like the pictures. Amazing design in this tree/jungle house!

    Punta Islita, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    This apartment is located in the small and unique town of Islita. It is very private and secluded. It is located on the back of the property under our house. It has views of the river and forest. The river flows June to Dec. and is a major bonus! It is a 3 min. drive to the tranquillo Islita beach. The space is newly built and is clean, comfortable, safe and organized. You have all the necessities for your stay. Coffee, stove, towels, bedding, and we have reliable internet & TV.
    This space has endless perks! The famous boutique Hotel Punta Islita is also located in the valley. If you stay with us you have access to the hotel pool (if you eat lunch there) as well as the hotel tours. Horseback riding, zip line, bird watching, turtle expedition and kayaking! Just ask me and I can arrange it for you. We also have great fishing and I can help arrange a fishing tour as well. There is a Scarlet Macaw breeding center in the valley and they have released 30 Macaws into the wild in Islita! You see them every day flying around and eating nuts from the beach trees. It is really special! We also have many families of howler monkeys that can be heard as well as seen and the more elusive white faced monkey. You can walk around the island at low tide and for the more adventurous you can even swim through a tunnel to the other side of the mountain. Just make sure you make it back in time. When conditions are right there is great beginner surfing in Islita and Christian will be there with boards to rent and lessons. Camaronal beach is a short drive away. The waves are famous for intermediate or advanced surfers depending on the conditions. It is also famous for turtles who come to lay their eggs! My father was a local healer and I have continued with that tradition. I have worked in the hotel for 20 years as a massage therapist. I can offer your group massages in the apartment with my very comfortable massage table. Many guests at the hotel have told me I give some of the best bodywork they have ever had, which makes me so happy to hear. I offer the massages for $65 for one hour per person. I also love to cook! I am more than happy to cook your group a typical Costa Rican breakfast for $7 a person. I can also do laundry in my home for you for an additional cost of $3 per wash load.
    Islita is a very special place dear to my heart. The town (as you can see from the photos) is filled with art and the people all know each other. There are great restaurants at the hotel and also Miguel's delicious restaurant that is one min. walking from our house and not to be missed. Also Kimbute is a short drive or walk and is typical CR cuisine. And we have the local Pulperia to buy staples.
  • Comfortable well equipped cabin in the small town of Islita. Really close to the beach and amenities such as restaurants and small shops. Our host Liseth was very welcoming even after arriving late the first night. Will definitely stay again and recommend.

    Adrian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It's a good house with everything you need. Playa islita is just a paradise. Mother nature really gave her best to this place :D Please help locals to keep it nice. Pura vida <3

    Francesco2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific small space for our family of four. Liseth invited us to a dance in town and gave us great local tips. The pool on the beach at the hotel club is very nice and made our four days here very relaxed.

    Hunter & Stratton2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Punta Islita is a wonderful small beach town to stay at and this AirBnB made our experience extra special. The place is just a short 5-10 minute walk to two delicious restaurants, which were great recommendations from Liseth. The beach is just a bit further. Liseth was incredibly nice and was very quick to respond to all messages. She also speaks English. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. She provided us with coffee and basic cooking supplies like oil, salt etc. She also hooked us up with a free horseback tour (just had to tip the guide well). We had the option of reserving bikes and getting a massage, which we partook in. The therapist who was actually her sister came to the AirBnB with a massage table. She was super nice as well and very professional. The backyard was clean and the perfect spot to sip coffee and watch animals. There was an outdoor sink, which came in handy for washing off sand. I would recommend staying here and hope to come back one day!!

    AmiLin2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Liseth is a great host. With their help, we saw baby turtles and went on a horse ride. She washed our clothes and hung them up. We felt very comfortable in the accommodation. We had everything we needed, including a rice cooker, gas stove and a large fridge with freezer. We liked to sit in the shade behind the house and down to the river - also for swimming. However, you have to prepare yourself for a shower with cold water, which you can easily get used to in the heat. We highly recommend this property.

    Birthe2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment has the necessary tools for cooking. Doña Liseth and her husband with very kind. Only the road is a bit complicated for cars.

    Carmen2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful little gem is a wonderful little town! We enjoyed our stay at Liseth’s place in the midst of town and jungle. We were greeted by a family of monkeys right outside our room! The river although not full is soothing. Overall we will definitely be back! Thanks Liseth!

    Barbara2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you enjoy being surrounded with nature, that's the place for you! We could hear monkeys in the morning and we fell asleep to the sound of birds. There's the A/C for those who can't support the heat very well. We had coffee in the apartment and it was nice to sit outside in the morning to drink it. Liseth warmly welcomed us and answered all our questions. The communication was clear and quick. The place is clean and perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. The beach is beautiful and very close. Thank you Liseth for sending us to the ranch for a horseback ride! I'll miss your place. Pura Vida!

  • Great house. Modern and efficient. Walking distance to everything. A family of howlers greeted us by the pool almost every morning. Perfect for a family stay in Islita and day trips to the surrounding area.

    Jc2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ruths place was exactly like the pictures it was not a disappointment at all. It was so nice to have a housekeeper come in daily. It is quite a little trip from Samara, so If you have room load up on groceries before you go. The beach club is a nice bonus and the beach was amazing. Also so fun hanging out with the monkeys. We hope to return again one day.

    Lisa2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s house is truly incredible. After planning a trip like this for nearly a year it is easy to create an unattainable image of what it will be like. Everything about our stay truly met our expectations and even more. The town of Punta Islita is so worth the adventurous journey to get there. The animals and wildlife greeting us throughout our days have created memories our children will keep forever. Hummingbirds, monkeys, and bats greeted us every morning, iguanas and salamanders throughout the day, and bugs that seemed out of a dinosaur book that our son marveled at, appeared at dusk. It was like being in a story book, all while staying in a sparkling clean oasis with a beautifully cooling pool outside our doorstep. Cooking meals with new ingredients and visiting all the amazing eateries within walking distance (most within about 200 yards!). Not to mention beautiful Islita beach!! We hope to return someday soon for sure.

    Sarah2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Agua was perfect! Ruth was an amazing host - she went out of her way to make things perfect. Punta Islita and the Casa location is great. Walking distance to local restaurants. We loved every moment of our stay and didn't want to leave! The house is beautiful, and the main upstairs bedroom is pure luxury! We had iguanas, monkeys, amazing birds (including Macaws flyng over daily). The jungle gym was great to have too. Islita is a beautiful little village with a lovely church and little colourful buildings. It's short walk to the beach. The coast road and beached south of Islita are also beautiful for day trips.

    Sandra2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth's place is exactly as pictured and much more! When we arrived we were greeted with fresh fruit, cut flowers, and an immaculately clean place. The pool is perfect for lounging and swimming any time of day. The house was cleaned daily and we never went with out towels. The housekeeper is also very friendly (I wish we knew more Spanish!). The location of the house is beautiful! You truly are in the jungle here! The bugs were not nearly as bad as i thought that they were going to be. We were greeted by 6 bats sleeping by our door every morning ( I love bats so i had to sneak that in here somewhere)! I would highly recommend booking a stay here!

    Ashley2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s house is beautiful and very clean and stylish and exactly as described. The pool and grounds are amazing, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, and the bathrooms are luxurious. The bedroom set up was perfect for my family (couple in our 50s and our two grown kids). Ruth provides lots of great information and responds very quickly. Doris keeps the house sparkling and is lovely: so kind and accommodating. She showed us all the best spots to see the monkeys and was also a great communicator and patient with our attempts to speak Spanish. Punta Islita is a lovely, quiet town with a beautiful beach and great restaurants (and we are food snobs). You can walk everywhere. The beach is less than 10 minutes but does have parking if you are unable. We got groceries in Samara on the way in and then supplemented with the mini super in town. We drove from Liberia and arrived at night. The last bit of the drive was a bit bumpy and windy at night but nothing we couldn’t handle. If you are not a confident driver, you might want to arrive in daylight.

    Beth2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. We really enjoyed the area and the home.

    Robert2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We have been using Air bnb and VRBO for the past decade and this was absolutely our favourite place ever - the monkeys, the birds, the iguanas, the food, we loved all of it! Punta Islita is a tough drive but so worth it! The southern beaches are untouched and so spectacular. Thank you Ruth. We will miss you Doris! We promise that we will be back!!!

  • Fantastic house and great pool

    Phil2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location. My family and I had a great time. Second time in this place. Amazing views of the ocean and mountains. The parrots came to visit one of the trees in front of the house. It has quick and easy access to the beach and the access to use the Hotel facilities is very convenient. Daniela ans the hosts are very responsive.

    Michelle2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of place. One family member, who has traveled a lot, said this is the first time the reality is better than the advertisement. The house is very unusual in that most of it is outside. The bedrooms are inside, and air conditioned, and the kitchen and laundry are inside, but the living room and dining room are under a big, thatched roof in a very traditional indigenous style for the area, and open to the sea. The views of the ocean are spectacular, and it is a short walk down a wooded path to the beach where the ocean is crazy warm! So fun to play in the surf. The first week we were there the skies were crystal clear so the stars at night were stunning. No light pollution here. We were charmed several days when the local howler monkeys came to feed in the trees right by the yard. And the birds! Oh my goodness, so many different types of birds just right there where you can see them. There are several interesting things to do nearby depending on your interests, but be prepared. This place is pretty remote. That is part of why you can see stars and animals and birds, but you need to be aware. There is a tiny store within walking distance but the closest grocery store, which is still very small by American standards, is 40 minutes away by car over very rough dirt roads. I recommend four wheel drive. You can't just pop over and buy band aids. But if you are okay with that, this is a perfect place. And speaking of groceries, the produce is limited by American standards, but what there is is amazing! Avocado, pineapple, mango, plantains make me embarrassed by what we have going by those names. One other thing I want to share with you -- health care is different there, but so great. I had a little problem and learned that you go to a Farmacia. They have doctors on site and you don't need an appointment. So great. So I highly recommend this home and this part of the world. You won't be sorry.

    Jane2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

    Karim2019-12-19T00:00:00Z

    Elena2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • If you're going to Punta Islita with a group this is the place you want. We have stayed at the Hotel Punta Islita before but this house was much better for a large group. We utilized Luis and his family for local tips, massages, and cooking. All services were fantastic! Aside from the home cooked meals, dining at Don Ramiro was one of the highlights. Miguel and his family are great and the food is delicious. Another bonus is the use of the hotel beach and bar. If you tell them you're staying at "Cara Cara" they will let you open an account. If you don't tell them that, it is very difficult. Overall, the house, location, and hospitality from Luis and his family are unbeatable.

    Jeff2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This home is fantastic. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a big, lovely, well-appointed home in an incredible location. And Luis and his family are wonderful. Highly recommend!

    Wade2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! That is all I can say! The view is better than the pictures show. The pool is fantastic. The garden, flowers and yard are very well kept. The beds are very comfortable. Plenty of towels. Live the open air living room. Plenty of space for everyone and a well stocked kitchen. Seeing the macaws fly over was a added bonus. The trail down to the beach is well maintained and easy to navigate. Luis the caretaker was very nice to greet us. The bbq area near the pool was one of our favorite hangouts. The hotel across the street had a fantastic dinner at reasonable rates and a awesome guitarist who made our dinner very special. Totally will go back to this home.

    Punta Islita, Provincia de Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    A luxurious fully appointed 3 bedroom/3.5 bathroom house with living room, full kitchen, and dining area. Perfect for a family or group of friends who want a comfortable and private place to enjoy their time in Costa Rica. Surrounded by forested mountains with a great view of the Pacific Ocean, and near world-class, uncrowded surf. Daily cleaning service is provided; cooking and BBQ grill services are also available. Transportation and tours can be arranged with local, trustworthy businesses.
    Located in the secluded Nicoya Peninsula in the Costa Rican province of Guanacaste, you will awaken to the sounds of Howler monkeys in the trees, step outside to see migrating whales from the comfort of the pool, and witness the beautiful Scarlet Macaws as they make their way through the trees. You can spend your days at Islita laying by the pool or ocean, reading in a hammock, or going on surfing, kayaking and fishing adventures. On your short walk to the beach, you can encounter deer, coatis and countless tropical birds, or you can lay by the pool and watch these amazing creatures as you sun bathe or sip on a drink. If you’re searching for unique experiences in this remote part of Costa Rica, you can go to neighboring Camaronal Wildlife Refuge to see nesting sea turtles at night and newborn hatchlings at dawn or dusk, or surf on its world class, powerful and uncrowded waves. Similar experiences can be found at Corozalito beach, where surfing and turtles abound and even fewer people visit. In addition, our friendly local operators offer multiple tours including ocean and mangrove kayaking, horseback riding, surfing lessons, stand up paddle boarding, sport fishing, and yoga. The small luxury hotel next door also offers zip lining tours and a cocktail bar on the beach. For those in search of a cultural experience, the local town of Islita, within walking distance, offers community guided tours of the women's art cooperative and the outdoor art museum. You may also request to take Tico (Costa Rican) cooking and tropical cocktail mixing lessons. Typical Costa Rican activities such as cow milking, cattle driving and Guanacastecan (the region) rodeo can also be arranged in the neighboring towns. Guests of Villa Jalapa will enjoy all the comforts of home with on site property management to meet every vacation wish you could possibly have.
    Islita is a small, extremely friendly community. You can visit the town's museum with local arts and crafts, play soccer at the community field and buy anything from ice-cream to sunscreen at the mini market. The town's colorful police building, church and primary school showcase some of Islita's unique flavors. Wherever you go in the town of Islita, beautiful local artwork will greet you and make you feel welcome.
  • You can’t go wrong the place is amazing we are coming back

    Lars2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, just wow. After many miles on winding dirt roads we weren’t sure what to expect. Once we made it to the driveway we were blown away. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s the perfect layout for privacy and togetherness - 3 separate bungalows with a shared living room/fully stocked kitchen. The beautiful infinity pool overlooking the jungle and ocean was just what we needed on hot days. We spent much of our time in or near it. The various tropical birds and animals on the grounds were fascinating to see. Bring binoculars! The house staff Lizbeth and Albaro were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend getting some or all meals cooked by Lizbeth - they were delicious. The only small downside was the WiFi only worked in the living room/kitchen and not the bedrooms. But it became an opportunity to just unplug, read books, and enjoy our time at this stunning villa. Highly recommend.

    Zina2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, super comfortable and equipped. Don Alvaro is super attentive and gave us super useful recommendations. The view and being surrounded by nature makes the place even better

    Christian2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular, to return!

    Tito2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at a hidden gem of a house! We all enjoyed every bit of the property and town. Highly recommend for a big group as you get your own bungalows but still have a space to all hang out together. We honestly can’t wait to come back and spend more than 3 days here! The hotel next door was very accommodating and let us use all their amenities.

    Liza2018-05-31T00:00:00Z

    Fabiola2018-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place is perfect! It is beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The view is breathtaking. Esteban, Diego , Lisbeth and Alvaro are all very helpful . We enjoyed getting to know Lisbeth and Alvaro and appreciated all they did to make our stay so pleasant. Lisbeth is a wonderful cook and is very knowledgeable about the area. We are already planning a return trip and highly recommend Villa Jalapa!

    Dee Dee2018-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Diego and Estebans Villa Jalapa in Playa Islita is an amazing house with beautiful views and very cool interior decorating. The house looks and feels brand new and the facilities within the house is very useful and easy to use. The pool is cool and cleaned every day. The two helpers Lisbeth and Alvaro takes relly good care of the guests and keeps the house clean and has good local tips. The villa is neighbour to the excellent hotel Punta Islita, so a good place for drinks and dinner. Also there are two good restaurants within walking distance, Kimbute and Ramiro. Playa Islita is small and not overrun. Playa Carillo is very, very nice and about 30 minutes away. You have to know that the Villa Jalapa is one main house and then 3 annexes which i very cool, but if you have small kids like us, it might be a little difficult if they cannot sleep alone. We would love to come back to this extremely beautiful area and wonderful and welcoming house.

  • Fantastic views, amazing pool with swim up bar right to outdoor living space. We spent so much time at the house because it was so perfect. Able to cook meals and prepare drinks right at home but also loved being able to walk to the hotel for dinner or go down to the beach club! Hotel staff made everything easy, maid services daily and fresh flowers placed in every room and bathroom daily. Highly recommend!

    Allison2019-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mario’s villa in Punta Islita is gorgeous and perfectly situated inside a luxury resort but is completely independent. It’s the best of both worlds. The villa is gorgeous, the view is amazing and the daily housekeeping is fantastic, adding special touches to the already wonderful experience. We’ll be back.

    Angela2018-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location in a well run resort with access to fabulous surfing beach. House comes with great maid and gardener. A few eating options nearby, but only very basic shop. We easily made and ate breakfast, but cooking fully for yourself lunch and dinner would be a bit more difficult . Reccomend shopping at Nicoya on the way in. Couldn't reccomend this house more. Host attentive to needs.

    Sophie2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • great location, great views, wildlife on site, pool is amazing, great for family or friends, close to beach, service was great, internet was fast! great place!

  • Recommended! If you want a paradise in Costa Rica with all amenities it is this! A super pool with spectacular and relaxing view! But if your priority is the beach, this is not so cute!

    Private room with independent entrance. The room has two single beds and a private bathroom. The room has air conditioning and shares a pool with other guests. The room is perfect for those travelers with a limited budget but eager to enjoy a nice and quiet place. The room does not have a kitchen or refrigerator, but guests can use an outdoor kitchen.
    The room is located on the property where we live, away from the main road, but close enough to visit the beaches, restaurants, or shop in supermarkets. Guests can enjoy a simple breakfast, which consists of pancakes, coffee, and fruits. Breakfast is served at 8:00 a.m. If you want to eat breakfast later, it must be agreed in advance.
    Bejuco is a beautiful and quiet area, which allows you to relax and also enjoy the typical atmosphere of Guanacaste. Bars, restaurants, and supermarkets are within a short drive. Despite being a very small area in Guanacaste, there is a variety of restaurants; such as, Pizza Tree (Italian pizzeria built on a tree), El Barco (Restaurant facing the beach that offers different types of alcoholic and natural drinks, and different types of dishes), To Go Ruta del Sol (Hindu food restaurant with options for vegetarians), Los Corrales (Bar and Restaurant with typical dishes), Laguna Mar (Bar and Restaurant that offers gourmet style dishes), among others. The area is characterized by its artisanal fishing, which means that you can find fresh fish and seafood every day, which are bought directly from the fishermen.
  • A very good stay, we enjoyed the swimming pool, in which we were finally alone, and the good and generous breakfast. Address I recommend

    Anne2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant stay we very much appreciated the air conditioning and especially the swimming pool! The staff present on site speak only Spanish but are very pleasant and discreet, Maria quickly answered my questions by message. Outstanding value for money

    Eva2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, in the middle of nature, in a quiet position, in a small village with supermarket, bar-restaurant. A few kilometers from Punta Islita, Playa Corozalito and Camaronal refuge. The rooms are spacious and clean with everything you need. The host is very helpful. Super recommended little paradise for a regenerating break!

    Serena2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very quit place with stunning view

    Jens2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best accomodation we found in costa rica at this price point. We would have stayed longer if Maria had space for us. We were so pleasantly surprised. And we used the yoga deck too, added bonus. So happy with this place.

    Zev2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place and a very good breakfast. Thanks a lot :-)

    Steffi2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place in Puntarenas area with a beautiful view and all the facilities you need. The room was tidy, had airconditioning, a tv and the beds were very comfortable. There is an outside kitchen which you can use for cooking and if you need to cool down there is a pool. The owners are very helpful and respond quickly to all your questions. A perfect getaway when on the (sometimes challenging) road, I would definitely come back here in the future!

    Ernst2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Once you get to find it this place is well worth it (4x4 required even if the track is good). Staff very welcoming and friendly. Magical place in an exceptional setting. Waked up by the animals, breakfast by the pool, lazing in the sun, quiet and pleasant place.

  • Very beautiful cabaña with amazing views. Loved the open air shower, if lucky you can watch monkeys while showering! Very hospitable hosts, lots of tips about beaches and other things! Only disadvantage is the location right beside the road. Not a lot of traffic though, so you don't hear that much. Definately recommended, just keep in mind it's a little remote 😊

    Linde2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect spot if you love living in and with beautiful nature. Alejandro and his parents love to share their knowledge about the Costarican way of life. The house is big, has everything you need and a gorgeous view! We have already slept at many places over the world, but this is for sure one of them we 'll never forget!

    Hilke2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great ocean view, very good dinner cooked by Alejandros mother

    Sonja2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The best view of Punta Islita, super hospitable, and spacious and clean cabin.

    Carolina2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt better than what is seen in photos, this cabin is beautiful and with an incredible view. It has all possible amenities, especially if you want to avoid going to restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped. Take into account how rustic it is so there will be insects and constant animal sounds, but nothing to bother if they are prepared. It is quite private despite being on the side of the road and if they need anything they have the hosts nearby and with all the provision.

    Vanessa2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • My Favorite ❤️❤️❤️, Quite simply. For those who know how to appreciate simple things full of character. Would be the perfect place for a honeymoon.

    Guylaine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Alejandro’s place - the views are worth a million at least, as well as the host’s hospitality. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling that way! And don’t miss out on the breakfast offer :)

    Estamos ubicados en Playa Bejuco, Guanacaste. La propiedad se encuentra a 40 minutos de Playa Carrillo y 55 minutos de Playa Samara. La calle para ingresar a la propiedad es privada, y siempre hay alguien vigilando la propiedad, lo que lo hace un lugar muy seguro a la hora de elegir donde quedarse. La villa esta rodeada de naturaleza y una vista muy linda hacia Playa Bejuco. El espacio es muy amplia y la zona es muy tranquila. La ubicacion hace de este lugar, el lugar perfecto para relajarse dado que se encuentra sobre una montana, lejos de la carretera principal; pero, lo suficientemente cerca en carro para recorrer las playas, visitar los restaurantes, o hacer compras en los supermercados.
    Bejuco es una zona preciosa y tranquila, te permite relajarse y tambien disfrutar del ambiente tipico de Guanacaste. Bares, restaurantes, y super mercados se encuentran a una corta distancia en carro.

La zona se caracteriza por su pesca artesanal, lo que significa que podras encontrar pescado y mariscos frescos todos los dias, los que se compran directamente de los pescadores.
  • A very nice and quiet space to spend some time. The apartment is very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked with essentials. The views are quite nice as well. As is the pool! As others may have stated, stock up before you come here, and there is about a little less than 20 miles of dirt road you will drive on (if coming from Carretera 21). Well worth it all!

    Andrew2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! Our hosts even helped us get local fish for dinner!

    Jen2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for 5 weeks and we will diffently return. The house had everything we needed. Marias hospitality was top notch! Best host we have ever experienced on Airbnb. Her staff Pushy our pool cleaner / gardener and Greta our maid were fantastic! Our Villa was spotless!! Upon arrival we had basket tea, coffee, sugar, honey etc. The beds and pillows super comfortable and quality sheets. We saw so much cool wildlife here, monkeys, toucans, macaws, praying mantis, locus. San Miguel beach was our favourite about 15 minutes away. Make sure you rent a 4x4 for the typical costa rica roads and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this villa. Pura Vida

    House with two bedrooms, each with private bathroom. The house is spacious and fully equipped. The capacity is 4 people in two double beds (can be individual upon request) and a sofa bed quite comfortable. The house is on a mountain among other villas that we have for rent; however, far enough that guarantees the privacy of the guest.

The road to enter the property is private, and there is always someone watching over the property, which makes it a very safe place to choose when looking for a place to stay. The villa is surrounded by nature and a very nice view of Bejuco Beach. The house is very spacious and the area is very quiet. The location makes it the perfect place to relax since it is on a mountain, away from the main road; but, close enough to go to the beaches, visit the restaurants, or shop in supermarkets.

  • A very nice house with good location ... Adrian who gives the keys super good people ... I recommend them

    Pamela2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little house with a pleasant garden. Pleasant terrace.

    Pauly2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed Monica’s place and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay near several wonderful beaches - Playa Carrillo, Samara and Islita. Adrian and his family were close by if we needed anything and were very helpful. We enjoyed many morning coffees on the shaded patio while watching the colorful birds and variegated squirrels in the nearby trees and listening to the howler monkeys not far away. The road between the house and Samara is paved and in good condition which made our twenty minute drives to town for dinners etc. relaxing and enjoyable. Communication with Monica was easy and she was quick to respond to any questions we had - making sure our wifi was fixed promptly when it went down one day. We found her place to be as she described and have great memories of our time there.

    Dennis2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • Excellent location a few minutes drive from Carrillo Beach. Fully suitable for any type of vehicle. The house is very large and spacious, perfect to go with the whole family. They accepted us to take our dog that is part of the family which we greatly appreciate. The communication was always very fast and the attention of Don Adrian and his Adriana Leaf who gave us the keys was excellent too. Monica's location is highly recommended. Thank you so much for everything!

    Estrada, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    This beautiful studio is made of wood, built on the second floor. The studio offers an ample space where you can relax, do yoga or simply enjoy the panoramic view of the ocean and the jungle. The studio is quite spacious, has 4 single beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and two toilets on the outside. Cable TV, WiFi, Air Conditioning and use of the pool are included.
    Spacious, private, safe, surrounded by nature, panoramic views of the ocean, located in a quiet environment away from the main road (it is located on a mountain), but close enough to the beaches, supermarkets, bars, and restaurants within a short distance by car.
    We are located 40 minutes from Playa Carrillo and 55 minutes from Playa Samara, in one of the quietest and most beautiful areas of the Nicoya Peninsula. Within a short drive, you can find supermarkets, restaurants, bars, and beautiful beaches. Bejuco is a very quiet area away from the bustle of the city or large numbers of tourists. Here you can enjoy being accompanied by a few people on the beach, and probably, if you get lucky, you can have the beach all to yourself. Can you imagine enjoying something so beautiful and peaceful in just one place? The beaches are very extensive, surrounded by lots of nature, with palm trees that provide shade or even picnic tables. In the months of August to November, you can be part of the famous "Arribadas" (Turtle Nesting) and even help to release the newborn turtles into the ocean.
  • Spectacular place, good facilities, breakfast and room. I have no complaints, Maria was super attentive and helped us with everything. Yes, a 4x4 car is necessary and if you want to cook, take the things bought from before, since in the nearby supermarkets there is not much variety.

    Arianna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Undoubtedly an amazing place to be and enjoy the nature of the site. An apartment that lends itself to an unforgettable stay. Maria was great with everyone and helped us a lot to get there.

    Marco2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We originally booked this place by mistake (we thought it was closer to Samara than it was).... but it turned out to be the highlight of our entire 2 week trip across Costa Rica. It was remote, quiet, and a magnificent setting... Beautiful view of the ocean! Locals are the kindest people on earth! The hospitality from the owners was top notch. They had a beautiful yoga space, wonderful outdoor kitchen, perfect outdoor fitness area, great pool, great family, and nice dog. If peace and quiet (away from the more popular touristy areas, then this is for you). Wild Costa Rica is all around this place... uncountable birds, howler monkeys, and beautiful vistas. Outstanding place and we hope to return with friends!!!

    Bruno2019-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • A place with beautiful view, we loved both the pool area and the balcony area above, we could have a good time among friends, do yoga, enjoy a variety of insects (for those we like), pool and have a good rest.

    Carao Project is a unique place to visit in the heart of the Camaronal National Wildlife Refuge, offering world-class surfing and opportunities to observe the endangered turtles nesting. Surrounded by amazing nature views, birds, howler monkeys, deers, squirrels and many other animals that will make your experience even more amazing. Our vision was to create spaces that would facilitate a peaceful and relaxing environment while celebrating the surrounding nature.
    The 4 casitas were built by local people offering a harmonious and artistic design. Each of the Garden Casitas has 2 Queen beds, private bathrooms, fans and a balcony with view to our amazing trees from which howler monkeys can wake you up every morning.

  • You will not regret your stay here. Quick walk to a secluded beach, great cooking at their bar/restaurant, and a hop & a skip over to Sámara for day activities. Be sure to check out the turtle conservatory!

    Reilly2018-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • The only bad thing about this place is having to leave! The photos on airbnb really don't do it justice. The rooms are much more beautiful than in the photos and ours had a hammock on a balcony that was surrounded in mosquito net so we could always leave to doors open and enjoy the beautiful view without letting any unwanted critters in. There is a hot shower and Wi-Fi is available at the restaurant. This listing should really include photos of the communal areas like the big platform hanging from the huge guanacaste tree. There are daily yoga classes there and at night it's beautifully lit. It's impossible to describe but being up there is magical. There is a big vegetable garden behind the restaurant where they harvest fresh ingredients for the food, and everything we tried at the restaurant was delicious. A 5 minute walk through the jungle leads you to a beautiful beach with hardly anyone on it. All of this would make for an ideal place to stay but what really sets this place apart and made it by far the best out of all the many places we stayed during our 3 week road trip across the country was the staff. Every one was very helpful and accommodating but particularly the manager Daniel. Never in all my years of traveling or of working in hospitality have I come across such a generous host. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was well taken care of and went above and beyond by taking the time out of his day to take us to see local attractions and hidden gems in the area rather than just recommending tours or giving directions. He was just the right amount of laid back so interactions with him felt warm and genuine rather than stuffy and formal but he kept everything very organized and running smoothly. The energy that he creates with the staff and the guests is a real sense of community that made it easy for everyone to get to know eachother. This place is unique and must be experienced if you're in the area.

    Alma2018-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful area and project. The cabins are a pleasure to stay in, rustic yet comfortable with a lot of character. Check out the tree top platforms for yoga or midnight beers 🍻. Daniel cares a lot for the conservation of the area and is knowledgeable about the refugee and local wildlife. Thanks for the great stay.

    Enjoy your vacation relaxing to the sound of the Pacific from every room in the house. We just finished building our home, our concept was to have a house for visiting family and friends and for everyone to have a private space to their own. The open concept and indoor/outdoor living spaces brings Costa Rica costal living to every day. Our caretakers will serve you an awesome breakfast every morning and keep the house nice and clean daily. Our super Chef Vanny is also available on request.
    As you walk in the front door you will right away see the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean, the main floor is all open space with indoor and outdoor living spaces. The kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances. The TV room can also convert into an extra bedroom with a very comfortable "flop over" sofa bed. We included an ensuit bathroom in this room also incase someone sleep there. The second floor has 4 spacious bedrooms all with ensuit bathrooms. Another goal of ours was to have a view of the ocean from every room in the house. The master bedroom has a large covered terrasse, this is my morning yoga spot. We are located 5 mins from Carrillo Beach, "our morning walk ritual spot" and on a dead-end street making life nice and quiet.
    Playa Carrillo is a very spacial place, nature is at the forefront with only a long beach, the Pacific, palms, almond trees and beautiful birds. This place is very special to us its what hooked us to the area. The little town of Carrillo has a few restaurants and a small grocery store. We like to go out for diner and do our groceries in Samara, the next town over. Its only a 10 minute drive and a great place for beach restaurants, cool little boutiques, yoga classes, salons and all the necessary places like: the bank, pharmacy and different grocery stores.
  • Beautiful views, amazing spaces and above and beyond hospitality. Our stay was a wonderful experience with the stellar accommodations and the helpfulness of Patricia and Raoul. Breakfast was a well presented full Costa Rican breakfast and never failed to be a great way to start our day. Patricia prepared our evening meals as well. It was nice to spend all day at the beach and come back to a well prepared meal then take an evening dip in the pool. France and Anggie have supplied an environment that will never fail to provide you with a relaxing, satisfying experience. We can’t wait until we arrive again in beautiful Costa Rica, Pura Vida!!

    Terra2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This may be one of the finest homes we’ve ever stayed in (the design, the furniture, the landscaping, the location, the 1.4m deep saltwater pool). The home has everything that could be needed, including a well-stocked kitchen with all the gadgets to make a splendid meal. We chose to hire Chef Vanny (when you get closer to your stay, his WhatsApp number will be shared with you to coordinate menu ideas) on the night of our arrival so we didn’t have to worry about trying to grocery shop after a long day of travel. He makes amazing food and we were stuffed by the end! He is Italian and his ravioli were divine. The best part of the whole trip were Patricia and Raoul, the caretakers of the home. They are so warm and hospitable (really we found all Costa Ricans to be this way). Patricia made amazing breakfasts which included the most wonderful pineapples, papayas, watermelons, and cantaloupe you have ever tasted. We’re still talking about CR fruit. (If you have room in your luggage, please consider taking coloring books for their 7yo daughter. I don’t think they’re readily available nearby and the ones we brought for her were much appreciated.) We’ve already decided to return someday. Pura Vida!!

    Shivani2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This a a great place to stay. Caretakers are awesome and not having to worry about breakfast is great. Place is clean relaxing and high end. To get away for a few days and relax, this is the place. Anggie was very accommodating and took care of all our needs and responded quickly. We had a great time!

    Anthony2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolutely gorgeous house (accurately featured in this listing's photos!) overlooking a pristine corner of the ocean. It's situated at the end of a quiet dirt and gravel road outside Puerto Carrillo. The caretakers, Patricia and Raoul, are so warm and friendly, keeping the house and grounds in excellent shape; Patricia's breakfasts and fresh fruit juices were a true highlight for us! The owners' representative, Anggie, was always very quick to respond to messages and helped to coordinate our stay, including outstanding, restaurant-quality dinners at the house from Chef Vanni. The nearby beach, while a bit wavy, is massive and shaded by palm trees (a good place to lay out towels); it's easy to access from the road and has some vendors offering cabanas, chairs, and refreshments (including the fresh coconuts that our kiddos loved). We valued the activities, food, and provisions in nearby Samara (especially Samara Organics, which offered great local products). Overall, this was an excellent spot for a relaxing family vacation, and we'd love to travel back another time!

    Timothy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • There are very few places my husband and I have been to I just take your breath away. From the communication with the owners to the communication with our immediate hosts Raul and Patrica who live Downstairs and have those with everything including making awesome breakfast every morning, this place was perfect. The house is brand new And is spectacular. At night time you can hear the waves of the ocean as if you were standing right next to it. Amazing infinity pool and decor. In the Beautiful beach town of Samara we also did an excellent Family fishing trip. Buy food for lunch and dinner and bring your entire family and just spend some days at this amazing house with incredible owners and incredible hosts! we will definitely be back again thank you so much for everything!

    Heidi2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at France’s property was amazing. It has breathtaking sunsets, great amenities, fabulous service and convenient location. I highly recommend this property to any family with kids or to a group of friends. It’s elegant, comfortable, and very well located. Patricia, the caretaker, goes above and beyond to make the best out of your stay. Angie regularly followed up with us during the stay to make sure everything was going as expected. We would highly consider to come back in the near future.

    Maykool2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • This bnb is even more gorgeous in real life than the photos! The view was so amazing and can be seen from everywhere in the house or pool. I stayed here with my fiancé this November and we will be back in the future with friends and family. The caretakers were so sweet and helpful! The house was very clean and modern. I would definitely recommend using Vanny the chef option at least once. His food was so delicious!! If I could give ten stars I would!

    Elizabeth2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • This house is absolutely amazing! It is a dream home in a private and beautiful location! We had an amazing time swimming in the pool, eating great food and relaxing; it was the best holiday and I am recommending this Airbnb to all my friends! You also have Patricia has Raoul who make breakfast and look after everything during the stay. It was truly a magical experience and I couldn’t be happier!

    Clarissa2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect large villa with all the amenities for a family of 5 children including a baby. We lived among the monkeys, which the children liked very much. To recommend !

    Hortense2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house about 3 minutes drive from beautiful Carrillo beach. Clean place, kitchen had everything needed to cook at home if needed. On site personnel were very helpful if needed for anything.

    Jaimie2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great home surrounded by wildlife, including howler monkeys, white-face monkeys, scarlet macaws, collared toucans, and millions of other birds! Located on the bus route, it was convenient for us since we didn't have a car for a lot of the time. Additionally, the couple living in the caretakers home on the property and the secure fencing assured us that our belongings were always safe. This is a wonderful place and a great value!

    Karen2019-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very cool, there's a lot of space to accommodate a lot of people. The beach is beautiful and huge, and there is so much to do. The only thing about the actual house we were surprised by were the iguanas, they lay on top of the roof and sometimes you can hear them walking. Overall though, our stay was very nice and we had a good time.

    Mikhail2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Would go again! A place totally recommended. Esteban from the beginning to the end was attentive and helpful.

    Rodbin2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house is in a good location - a few minutes away from Playa Carrillo and Playa Sámara, and less than an hour away from nearby beaches like Playa Bejuco and Playa Barrigona. There's a full kitchen, two bathrooms with showers, three rooms, a porch, and even a laundry room. The living room is spacious and there's plenty of parking. Highly recommended!

    Franklin2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a perfect location, it is a very cozy house. Several beaches are near the beach. The communication with the host was quite good.

  • Monica was a great host with easy communication and quick response. Check in was easy and the house was very clean and as described in the listing.

    Peter2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic villa fully equipped in a very well maintained, peaceful and safe neighbourhood with amazing shared pool. Our children really enjoyed watching the iguana and playing in the garden as well as being in the house to relax.

    Chloé2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • such a cool place to stay. loads of space (we were 2 couples) and stylish/luxurious house. kitchen is huge and amazingly well equipped (it has literally everything you can think of). nice patio with a table for 4 to sit outside. Monica is a great host and very flexible. One of the best airbnb experiences I‘ve ever had!

  • We had a great time, the house is super equipped, the common areas are very spacious, the residential where the house is located is very safe which gave us a lot of peace! We will be back!

    Margarita2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house & a good area!

    Tommy2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house, has everything you need in a kitchen does not need anything, the style of the house is unbeatable, and Monica is a very attentive and friendly hostess, the place is relatively close to the beach two kilometers to be exact , the location is very successful to not be on par with the beach gives a lot of privacy since it is in a private condominium, lots of vegetation and with the possibility of listening to monkeys and limpets. We will definitely be back.

    Guanacaste Province, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    Magnificent villa located on a private hill and surrounded by a tropical garden. Stunning view of the Pacific ocean and a private 12-m pool and is only 10 min drive from an idyllic beach ideal for surfing, relaxing, swimming or fishing.
    Within a 25-min drive, you find restaurants, bars, and small food stores along the beach and in the villages. In Pueblo Nuevo, just next to the property, there is a small local restaurant and bar called La Conga serving good local food. You can also buy food in this village and in the other nearby village of Bejuco, but in both cases, the choice is limited. In Playa San Miguel area, you find the beach-bar Cocos locos, a good restaurant in Hotel Laguna Mar next to the Pizzeria Pizza Tree. In Playa Costa de Oro, there is the beach Restaurant/Bar El Barco and driving 15 more minutes to the village of Coyote, you have a good local restaurant called Loma Clara, a sympathic café called Café Santé, and some more small places. You also have a decent food store. Finally, when you reach Playa Coyote, you have another good local restaurant and bar called La Veranera and at the end of the road, you find a small beach restaurant called Tanga, which serves the best fish! From the house, you can also drive Northwards to the village of Corozalito where there are two local restaurants serving good food, a pizzeria and Resto La Leña. A bit farther, you have the very good restaurant of Hotel Punta Islita and a nice local restaurant in a beautiful garden called Kambute. This is just to name a few options!
  • Camille’s place is exceptional! The pictures of the view don’t even do it justice, it’s absolutely breathtaking! The lower level kitchen and common area are a perfect place to cook, hang out, and enjoy the view and local wildlife. And the pool! Wow! It has a large open deck, great places to lounge, and the water is refreshing and clean. The bedrooms are spacious and clean, with comfortable king size beds. Washrooms are all clean with large showers. Highly recommend this place to any travellers going to the area!

    Jonathan2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had three lovely days at this wonderfull place (My kids: 1 and four years old and my husband) Its a FANTASTIC and MINDBLOWING VIEW. Its an amazing place to stay if you want to relax and be close to the nature (there is a lot of animals and insects). Its a beautiful garden and a wonderful and clean house with everything you need. The infinitypool is amazing and the sunset is wonderfull- But the thing we like the most was to wake up i the bed with this amazing view. At our stay we visited the playa san Migel (lovely beach) and the Locoscocos bar is a nice place to eat and drink. We went to the Pizzatree and had a nice lunch and the kids loved the treehouse. Camille gave us a lot a useful informations about the house and the things to do in the area.

    Trine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was our 5th year staying in various locations in Costa Rica, and honestly, I'm not sure what to add to what has already been written! We've spent 3 weeks at this house, and all the positive comments we had read were very true. Beautiful, clean house, fantastic view, epic sunsets, secluded enough to comfortably unwind, good choice of deserted beaches nearby, very helpful house keepers (from helping with a flat tire to baking a birthday cake!), just enough restaurants - the pargo entero frito is delicious everywhere around here! - and very communicative host. Thanks Camille, we should be back ;)

    Olivier2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • A true paradise!

    Jean-Philippe2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Camille’s casa was an amazing place to stay. Waking up every morning to an amazing view really made it a special trip. There were also a lot of helpful hints about the area included. We made a couple of day trips to Samara, and highly recommend it as a place to visit. It was only an hour away. I highly recommend Camille’s casa as a place to stay!

    Brendan2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The 180 degree view of the ocean from this beautiful house is unobstructed and breathtaking. We were mesmerised by it. The infinity pool is lovely, as is the beautiful, well maintained garden. The house is on a hill, and you have to ford a little river with the car (4x4!). It is off the beaten path in a very tranquil, unspoiled rural part of the Nicoya peninsula. This is a place to relax and enjoy nature: we were visited by a family of howler monkeys on several ocasions. Also we saw a couple of deer in the garden of this little piece of paradise.

    Reinold2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had the BEST time. I can't think of a more relaxing, fantastic, exciting place to visit. Camille's directions were perfect as we lost internet over the mountains. The house is gorgeous. Our family of four (two adults and two teenagers) read books by the pool, (no TV's - the BEST). We talked and reconnected, which is so needed in this day and age. My husband and I read the fantasy books the boys were reading (not our genre) and loved them and had great debates. We hung out at the local beach where we body surfed and lunched at Locos Cocos (highly recommended). We stocked up at Wallmart on the way there and spent our nights eating great food, sipping wine and watching the sunset. Magic. The linens and towels were clean and crisp. Showers amazingly clean. We woke up to Howler Monkeys every morning (how amazing!) The house is exactly as you see on the internet. Sparkling clean, gorgeous and so relaxing. I can't heap enough praise on Camille, her gorgeous house, pristine pool, gorgeous grounds, lovely gardener and cleaner. We visited a lot of local sights, beaches and restaurants we would never have found without Camille's thoughtful notes. We adored our time and will be back! I can't wait!! Sandii, Ben, Declan, and Austin

  • Heather’s property is amazing! We loved that it had two spacious bedrooms, full kitchen, living room and large outdoor area with a patio and plunge pool. It was a perfect place to stay with our son and daughter. The location within the hotel is closer to the beach than many others and we all really enjoyed the walk up to the delicious breakfast each morning. Such an incredible view! We also enjoyed exploring the town. There is a shop with beautiful local artwork, soccer field where everyone gathers to play and our kid’s favorite restaurant- Don Ramiro’s. We highly recommend you make a reservation and go there. The owner, Miguel makes the experience so fun and the food is always great! Heather was an excellent host! She was very helpful and quick to respond when making our reservation and with addressing any questions that came up prior to our arrival. And the staff at this hotel are truly incredible! They are always so friendly and helpful and are a big reason why our time in Islita was so fun. Can’t wait to stay again! Thank you Heather!

    Jenny2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • First off, we are do it yourselfers. We research and pick the best house or hotel for the best price and then shop the options for activities and food. We always hire a car so we have the ability to do it our way...which is precisely why we would have missed this hidden gem. By the time we got here we’ve been all over CR. We found it last minute when the place we had planned on staying was a bust. We are so glad that happened because this place was amazing! It’s not just a fantastic private villa with a private pool, it’s a part of a 5-star boutique hotel experience. First and foremost were the people: the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. From the concierge moving our luggage, to the waitstaff helping the kids with the buffet, to hotel manager suggesting nearby sights and activities. But the best was our host - Heather was incredibly responsive, thoughtful and genuinely caring. The hotel had it all. After getting used to overpriced and subpar meals elsewhere, we were beyond pleasantly surprised by the main restaurant. Although there were other good options in town we ended up eating almost every meal at the hotel. The prices were very reasonable by any standard, but the food was fantastic. We’re foodies with an organic vegetable farm that supplies the best restaurants in our area and we know good food. This place has a Chef who knows what he’s doing! The pools were all great - we had three to choose from. Our favorite was down by the beach. We could play in the ocean, then shower off and jump in the pool. Then lounge in the shade under the palms and order lunch off the beach menu. Repeat! We took advantage of the zip line tour which was very reasonable and just the right amount of that activity. Most of the these tours cost hundreds, have large groups and take all day. By the end of the day you’re over it. Our tour only had four people, (well 4 guests and 3 guides) and we were able to do the whole course in an hour. And it was just as fast, thrilling and beautiful as others out there. For those zipping for the first time or with children I’d highly recommend the hotel’s course. And it’s right there! What a fabulous place. A secluded oasis in paradise. If you’re going to go to Costa Rica and could have it all once you get there this is it. So glad we went! And so glad me met Heather and all the great people at the hotel!

    Megan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous spacious private villa on the premise of an exclusive hotel. Providing luxury service level. Private pool. Perfect villa for the 5 of us, family with young children. 3 min easy safe trail walk, through the golf course (that is not in use and more like a garden), to the beach. Shuttles take you to all the amenities and you never have to wait. Saw wild life and loved the macaw rescue center, a must see. Delicious food, drinks and live music on the beach for dinner. At the family pool bar we recommend Fish and Chips with a side of guacamole. Fresh tropical fruits and smoothies made to order. We visited this place during the peak season and the beach was still offering luxurious privacy. Host communicated very well. Loved it all around.

  • Throughout our stay, Danny was always available for any advice. He provided a wealth of local knowledge and helped us with transportation. The house is located off the beaten path in a secure residential neighborhood in what was formerly farm land. Monkeys, birds and iguanas can be seen and heard in the back garden. The private pool and covered hammocks make it hard to leave. The seclusion is so relaxing. The house is literally 5 minutes from the best beach we have seen in Costa Rica (Playa Carrillo). All that Samara has to offer is a mere 15 minutes away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wonder why Danny isn't a "Super Host". It's only a matter of time :)

  • The location of the property is just amazing! In the middle of nature. There is a small path down to the beach and we could even spot monkeys in the trees in the morning. Unfortunately, the viewing platform can no longer be used.

    Anna-Lena2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Not much compares to the natural serenity we felt while at Carao. Fall asleep to the sound of cicadas and ocean waves, wake up to the sound of birds and monkeys. Truly a unique and incredible place. Daniel and Staff went over and above to accomodate guests. Looking forward to the next time we are lucky enough to be there.

    Alex2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was perhaps the most unique travel experience I have ever had. It's 3 cabins in the jungle with an incredible restaurant and private access to a truly amazing beach. Surfer's paradise even though I don't sure. Dawn on that beach is a memory I expect to carry for life. But, it is rudgid terrain getting there and definitely not recommended for timid travelers or the feignt of heart. Also, if you're looking for cable TV or Wi-Fi in your cabin you may want to try elsewhere. But if you want to experience CR's best beaches, jungle, and food...this is as good as it gets.

  • We had a great experience at Menage a trois! We stopped there for one night and were delighted to find a bathroom and shower that belong in a top notch hotel. The main room was mostly occupied by the 3 beds which was perfectly suitable for our length of stay. Would definitely stay here again if I found myself in this area in the future.

  • The place is great! New, clean, in the middle of the civilised jungle forest between two gorgeous beaches (both reachable by bus 7 minutes). Roberto is a great host! I recommend and will stay again once I have a chance! Отличное место, прекрасный хозяин, природа и два потрясающих пляжа. Место тихое и не жаркое, что важно в высокий сезон. Рекомендую точно, как для серфинга (рядом Камарональ), так и для спокойного отдыха.

  • Everything is new at Roberto's. The cleaning is perfectly done. Roberto is very caring. I recommend.

  • Robert bol veľmi dobrí hostiteľ. Ubytovanie sme hľadali na poslednú chvíľu, v tomto okolí toho nebolo moc dostupného. Po príchode sme boli milo prekvapený, izba s kupeňov a WC sú novo zariadené, všetko bolo čisté. Pred kabínou je malé príjemné posedenie z ktorého je možnosť vidieť opice, papagáje atd..<br/>S priateľom sme boli maximáne spokojný, takže odporúčame všetkým.

  • Superb accommodation! The best room we had on the trip (low budget trip). Everything is new, there are mosquito nets, air conditioning, hot water. The decor of the room is very nice and it is spacious. The accommodation is very well placed when you have a car. It's quiet, the little garden is really cute. You may be lucky enough to hear and see howler monkeys. I advise you to have breakfast because Roberto cooks very well; and he made us different dishes every day. I recommend 100%. In addition Roberto is a great person, and he speaks French!

It has welcoming living spaces finished with bespoke, elegant furniture and fittings. The breath-taking views from the generous terraces over the sparkling infinity pool and lush vegetation to the ocean beyond are truly spectacular. Daily cleaning and breakfast is included and our staff will gladly help organize trips for you.
    Our stunning new home in the Nicoya Peninsula, one of the world's only five Blue Zones, creates the perfect setting for your dream holiday to Costa Rica. Built in an outstanding position above Puerto Carrillo on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Pacific coastline, Casa Iscaja has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and wonderful, welcoming living spaces finished with bespoke, elegant furniture and fittings. The breath-taking views from the generous terraces over the sparkling infinity pool and lush vegetation to the ocean beyond are truly spectacular. Designed by a well-known British architect, Casa Iscaja is contemporary in style with accents inspired by Costa Rican architecture. The house was completed in spring 2019 with interiors curated by a Nosara-based interior design agency using custom made furniture throughout. To view a video of the property please use the following link https://youtu.be/U6vIhAOliTY You will find some of the most beautiful beaches that are also safe for swimming within easy reach of the house: Playa Carrillo and Playa Samara are 5 and 15 minutes away respectively and Camaronal which is amazing for surfing is also close by. The area is also home to a wide and tempting variety of restaurants serving local, Japanese, Thai, French, Italian, Spanish and Mexican food. There are a tremendous range of activities to enjoy and Gerardo and Elieth, our housekeepers , will gladly help arrange any of the following for you:- Surfing Fishing Diving and snorkelling Horseback riding - you will be picked up from the house Trekking/hiking Bird watching Whale watching - you might actually see them from our terraces! Dolphin and turtle watching Yoga sessions and massages can be arranged at the house Visits to the Macaw Recovery network – rather wonderfully, macaws are now spotted regularly in the area. Gerardo can also arrange for you to be collected from the airport and there are car rental agencies in Samara which usually can arrange for your car to be dropped off at the house. Wonderful Elieth will make delicious breakfasts for you and she can (occassionaly and after consultation with her) prepare lunch or dinner at extra cost. Groceries would then have to be purchased by the guest. Casa Iscaja is available for rent throughout the year and is perfect for private retreats as well as for families and friends. However, we would ask you to bear in mind that because of the location, the house is not recommended for children under the age of 8. We look forward to welcoming you to our small piece of Costa Rican paradise.
    The beautiful beaches of Playa Carrillo and Samara are respectively 5 and 15 minutes away by car. Go and visit (or surf for the experienced surfer) the magical beach of Camaronal! It’s only 20 minutes away by car.
  • We had an amazing family stay at this beautiful location. The house is very well taken care of, very nice and very tasteful furnished. The unreal surroundings create a paradise like feeling and we watched animals from exotic birds to monkeys to whales from the comfort of the pool. The pictures very much live up to the real thing. It is really rear to find something as beautiful and special as Casa Iscaja. Carla, John as well as Gerardo and Elieth took lovely care of us and supported us in any possible way. We will be always thankful and will remember the great time we had in Puerto Carrillo. Pura vida at its best!

Gerardo and Elieth are very kind and attentive people, look after the house and cook breakfasts. Nothing to wish for more, book without a doubt!

  • John was very easy to communicate with. His house is a gem in Carrillo. Normally you don’t find this kind of spaces easily in Costa Rica. I will be back for sure!

    Marc2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Pura Vida! If you’re contemplating whether or not to book this villa, I hope this review helps make the decision much easier for you!! This villa has by far been the BEST place my family and I have ever stayed during a vacation. For starters, the view is unbeatable. I guarantee you will never find a better ocean view than the one offered at this spectacular villa! And to top it off, there’s a huge pool that overlooks the never ending and breathtaking Pacific Ocean. The layout of the home is absolutely perfect. It’s very open and easily accommodated our family of five. We were welcomed and felt right at home at this villa thanks to the lovely caretakers. Every morning we woke up to a delicious breakfast. And every night after a fun eventful day, we had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful dinner and a swim in the pool. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation spot. The location is a little remote in terms of getting there, but not too far from town and two huge beaches. There are a never ending list of activities you can partake in during your stay. All you need is a 4x4 car to enjoy all this location has to offer. The local people are very kind, helpful, and easygoing. If safety is a concern for you like it is for our family, you have nothing to worry about with this villa. Everything about our stay was amazing. The only complaint we had was the fact that we had to leave this beautiful paradise. We will definitely be coming back as soon as possible!
