Enjoy an authentic Cosa Rican experience! Experience the tranquility of Cabuya, just a short drive to the excellent tourist destinations of Montezuma, Mal Pais and Santa Theresa. This lovely two-bedroom casita is nestled in the Oceanside village of Cabuya. Mature tropical gardens surround the Property. Although it is not a beach house, you can see the ocean somewhat from the backyard.
The house features two air-conditioned bedrooms, a small bathroom with a large shower, a fully equipped kitchen, a small breakfast table in kitchen and large dining table on back garden terrace. The living room has a TV with DVD player. There's a front porch and lovely gardens with fruit trees and hammock. The casita is right in the village yet offers great privacy and security with a fully fenced in property and a gated driveway for your vehicle.
The ocean is just a short walk, and the local bus line is right at front gate and brings you into Montezuma every 2 hours(and from there to Mal Pais, Santa Theresa, Cobano, the ferry, etc.). There are many beach options all along the road from Montezuma to Cabuya. The beaches in Cabuya are rocky, but Just down the road is a wonderful white sand beach (Las Manchas or Playa Los Cedros). It is very bike-able, and if you have a car, it is a five to ten minute drive.
Within a very short walking distance of the house are two grocery markets with fresh produce, meats, toiletries, house supplies and more. There are several local fishermen who sell fresh fish daily in town as well. Cabuya is a great choice if you want to be central yet get away from it all!

Walk to Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve- National Park, Cabuya's claim to fame which ends at a beautiful secluded beach. Cabuya Island is accessible for hiking and snorkeling by foot at low tide. Hike to waterfalls, visit the dinner movie theater, take a yoga class or a Spanish class or enjoy live music. Available nearby tours: Tortuga Island snorkeling, canopy tours, horseback riding, scuba diving and sportsfishing tours. A little bar (Salon Higueron) is located at the crossroads and is a friendly little place owned by Jergen (from Germany) that sometimes has live music. You can also visit the Rainsong Wildlife reserve and see their rescued animals. You can rent ATV’s and ocean kayaks at the Howler Monkey Hotel and there are several fishermen that are happy to take you out fishing for the day for a range of prices. El Coyote cafe offers fantastic meals and a variety of activities as well. If you are looking for a more lively nightlife, Montezuma is only a few miles down the road. A small, but busy little Oceanside town, Montezuma has many restaurants and cafes. Street vendors make the street look lively and colorful with their jewelry, pottery, hammocks and more. The long stretch of beautiful sand beaches in Montezuma are lovely. It attracts many visitors from all over the world. If you enjoy surfing, you can do it all around the area, but Mal Pais, about four miles away, is one of the favorite surfing destinations in Costa Rica. The beaches there are also lovely. Hike the road from Cabuya to Mal Pais. It is an amazing hike and takes a little under two hours....morecollapse

About the owner: We are Canadians who love to travel. I have been to 21 countries and fell in love with Costa Rica so I had to buy a piece of it. Love the culture and the people here. I am a Nurse and will retire very early and move down here to my little cottage!
Why the Owner Chose Cabuya:
Cabuya is a great place to wind down and get to know the local way of life. Much less busy than nearby Montezuma and Mal pais, yet with easy access to the beaches and rivers in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Casita is in a very safe area with great neighbors, yet surrounded by tropical vegetation so you feel like you are alone.
