Very Relaxing Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I had a great vacation at Ben's property. It is very beautiful and peaceful there. It is on the edge of the jungle, and one of the nicest beaches in Costa Rica for dieting or just laying in the sun relaxing is just a short walk away. There are also multiple reasonably priced restaurants within a short walk. The guest house is set up very nicely and the photos don't do it justice. It is much bigger and nicer than it looks. There are also constant improvements being made and anything I asked Ben for he was quick to provide. In fact Ben was so helpful in many ways. He drove me to town to get groceries before I had a vehicle, he assisted me in arranging transportation to other areas in Costa Rica, he helped me set up tours to volcanoes, and surf trips. He knows somebody who does a tour for everything. Just tell him what you want to do and he will hook you up.
I highly recommend you stay here. You won't regret it.

A peaceful paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for two months at this wonderful spot! We originally planned to only stay for one month but enjoyed everything so much that we just had to make it two! It really is a little bit of everything that makes this place so special, of course the beach really stands out, the sand is soft, the water warm (most of the time anyway!) and the views are beautiful. The cabina was beyond what we expected, it was spacious and comfortable and the hammocks were a real treat in the afternoon with the warm breezes blowing. The desk and the excellent internet were a definite bonus as well! The feeling of security on the property was nice too, everything is fenced and gated, which was really nice for a feeling of privacy as well. The owner Ben was a fantastic host! He was very helpful with suggestions on local restaurants, shopping and any other little bits of information we were after on the area, as well as being quick to help us out with any requests we had. We absolutely loved having the company of his two wonderful dogs as well!
We are already planning to go back!

Amazing low-key getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent 3 weeks here in December, and had a wonderful time! We were looking for a spot where we could easily relax and spend a lot of time on the beach, and this place was perfect. Ben was a fantastic host - he took us into town a few times, gave us lots of local advice, and gave me an awesome surf lesson! The beach is great for lounging, swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, and fishing (my boyfriend caught tons of tuna, so we had some delicious fresh fish dinners). The guesthouse itself is very quaint, and is comfortable for 2 people. We felt really safe here, partly due to the two guard dogs:-) They are super friendly, and were great companions for us while we were there! We'd definitely recommend this spot for anyone looking for a relaxing and quiet stay off the beaten path!

Wonderful 6 Weeks!

  • 5 of 5
This place was great! Ben was a great host, and even took me along to trips into town to get groceries. Internet is fast so working from here was easy. This place would be so much better if you have your own vehicle, or plan to walk a lot. Beach is close enough to carry a surfboard down too. The A/C is brand new, and turns the place into a freezer in about 5 minutes. Would visit again! The two dogs on the property were so nice, will miss them for sure!

Great for Quiet and Surfing

  • 5 of 5
I took some time off in-between jobs and really enjoyed my stay here. I was looking for something quiet and off the beaten path where I could spend time surfing and relaxing. I really liked the fact that there was a kitchen so I could make my own food, wifi so I could work when needed and the hammocks were wonderful for relaxing. Ben (the owner) is a great surf instructor and very patient. He also made it very easy for me to rent a board and change it out as my surfing ability improved. Overall I felt very much at home during my stay here both in Ben's place and in the community.
