Manzanillo house description
Faya Lobi has two floors and is about 200 meters from the beautiful, long sandy beaches of Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge in the small village of Manzanillo on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast. A perfect spot for a beach and nature vacation near Puerto Viejo. The beach in Manzanillo is fantastic! You can walk kilometers in both directions.
Once in the Wildlife Refuge there are many trees where you can find sloths, howler monkeys and toucans, just to name a few because there are obviously many more species.
There are two terraces (above and below) where you can lie in the hammock or sit in one of the seats to enjoy the peace and tranquility.
The bedrooms are surrounded by a beautiful landscape and the building has an open structure which one can enjoy the outdoors. Each bedroom has a bathroom with toilet, sink, a nice hot water shower (non electric!), spacious, handmade mosquito nettings and fan. The four bedrooms on the top floor is good for 8 sleeps.
In the bedroom on the ground floor may also sleep two. Bed linen and towels are provided.
There is a fully equipped kitchen (toast oven, fridge / freezer, coffee maker, kettle, rice cooker, iron grill, gas cooker, juicer, pots, plates, cutlery, cups and glasses) is located between the bedrooms to prepare your breakfast, lunch or dinner while simultaneously enjoying the view of our garden which is very likely that there may be a hummingbird flies by or a howler is hanging in one of the trees in the backyard. There is also the possibility to watch television via satellite or using your laptop via our wifi system. There is a selection of small supermarkets just minutes walk to do your shopping. There are several restaurant (s) and sodas to find around the corner when you do not want to cook.

Great house and a lovely village
Great house and a lovely village
We spent a fantastic two weeks at casa Faya Lobi and really weren't ready to leave. The owners are just great. Super nice people who live behind the house and are available for questions or to offer knowledge of the area but are also super respectful of your privacy. The house itself is located just a two or three minute walk from the beach and there are a few local Sodas, markets, an ice cream shop that also has wonderful sandwiches, Maxi's Restaurant and Funky Manza pizza, which was our favorite place to eat in town. The house is very cool, with a covered, open air kitchen/living area and four bedrooms upstairs, each with their own bathroom/shower. The kitchen is basic but totally serviceable, with a small sink for washing up, a refrigerator and a propane set of burners. Pots, pans, dishes, etc.... are all provided as well. The living area is comfortable and being open air it almost feels like you're living in a tree house in the jungle. During the day the garden is alive with birds, at night there are frogs and geckos singing away to keep you company. It really is a great spot. Being in the village you'll run into the locals every day, which is great, and Faya Lobi gives you the experience of living in the town as opposed to being a tourist passing through. If you're looking for the all-inclusive experience, this probably isn't it, but if you enjoy a real home-away-from-home feel that is part of the daily life of a small town but still removed and private you'll love it. Be sure to book a tour of the jungle or just walk along the beach and explore. There are also tons of great dining options between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the trip was how good the dining options were in the area. We really enjoyed the Puerto Viejo Bakery, Bread and Chocolate coffee house, Selvins restaurant, Pita Bonita and Stashus con Fusion. Perhaps the best praise I can give is that I wouldn't have changed a thing about our stay and I can't wait to go back.

Owner response: Dear Will and Janet, To make a long story short we were very, very happy to have you as our guests! You are such nice people with lots and lots of positive energy! We do hope that we will meet again if you might decide to come to Costa Rica again. Hopefully the weather changed a bit for you before coming home again because -17 is pretty crazy! ;) Thank you again for staying with us. As you always said yourself at the end: Cheers! Patricia, Michael and Voss
I loved this place! Very kind people from Holland. Very mellow and relaxed, anything is possible just ask them, fishing trips, Jungle tours, bbq,s etc. Nice clean rooms and the hottest showers I came across in the whole of Costa Rica. The place is on a good spot in the village, quiet, with the jungle on the backside, and just 3 minutes away from the best beach I,ve ever seen. A small walk from the house, on a sand path and you see the bay of Manzanillo. Beautiful big bay on one side, secluded with tropical forest for long walks and on the other side, just across the creek , small abandoned beaches with great views from the rocky coral formations. I can recommend Faya Lobi to anyone.

I spent New Years Eve at Faya Lobbi with 9 cousins/friends. It could not have been better! Each room has its own bathroom so you have enough privacy for everyone. The common area is super comfortable, nice chairs, a TV, and a well-equipped kitchen with all you need. There were extra towels and sheets if we needed them, and good parking space. It is located at a walking distance to the amazing Manzanillo beach, and still you feel like you have great privacy. If you have a car you can be in Puerto Viejo in 10 minutes, but with the natural beauty of Manzanillo, we didn't want to move out from the peaceful Manzanillo town. Plus the owners are super cool people! This was my second time in Faya Lobi, but the first time for the rest of my 9 friends, and I can say that all of them were very pleased with Faya Lobi as well. We are all Costa Ricans and have visited many other beaches in the country before, but Manzanillo is one of our favorite areas and also can say Faya Lobi is one of the best places we've stayed at for vacation at the beach. Completely recommended! Pura vida!

Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
It's Paradise: Close to the beach and nature. There is a very relaxed atmosphere in Manzanillo. Child friendly which we love because of our firstborn son. Enough reasons for us to live here.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking distance to the beautiful long stretched beaches. Just a walk of 1,5 minute! This counts for the Gandoca Wildlife Refuge too, everything is close by but still the house is in a very nice and quiet spot. Direct bus to San Jose in the morning and several others into the direction of Limon. Tours are easily to arrange from Manzanillo.
