- We welcome our guests to enjoy the beauty of the tropics by encouraging them to experience the house as a place of contemplation, sacredness, and voluntary simplicity.

Casa Zen is just as it looks...amazing!
Casa Zen is just as it looks...amazing!
I cant stop thinking of the peaceful, wonderful time we had when we stayed at Casa Zen. From the hammock to the kitchen it gave the feel of total relaxation and vacation time. The house is steps to the beach and walking distance to everything you need. We liked making a cocktail and walking down to the water for sunset....just beautiful. The house was very clean...spotless actually! The owner was very sweet and answered all questions, and made sure we were having a great time.I would of course reccomend this property to a friend....only if I was not staying there first...

Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, adventure seekers, romantic getaway.
Casa Zen is just as advertised-- a lovely, calm, clean and comfortable home away from home. Our extended family (2 couples, 3 children) rented the whole floor (the 2 bdrm & 1 bdrm) and it was a generous amount of space, including a great kitchen and living room and deck. Just a couple minute walk to the beach and a short drive to a number of other beaches and sights. Highly recommended!

I spent a month in the 2 bdrm. Tres Palmas is one of the premiere beaches in the world and the house is as special as the beach located a short block away. The owner is a talented artist and her paintings highlight the living room and master bedroom. the beach may be great but so is the walk to reach it from the house. I made friends with the neighbors along that path which consisted of roosters, horses, cows and a few humans to feed them. Observing the night sky constellations framing the big dipper as the skies center piece from my bedroom balcony was my evening highlight when taking a break from reading my book. The central location is just far enough away from town (Rincon) and the surf culture of Maria's beach (about a one minute drive to each)to give me the feeling I was in my own little oasis when pulling into the driveway. I can't wait to return to that special place called CASA ZEN.

Our family enjoyed Casa Zen very much. We thought it was beautiful, and very clean. The area was safe and close to the beach. Not having a TV or radio was a blessing, it helped our family to grow closer and enjoy each others company. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. God Bless!!
