  • Great value!!! Secluded!

    "We are budget travelers, so we were looking for the biggest bang for the buck. This is a HOUSE -- not a little cabina. 2 full size bedrooms & baths. There was also an extra bed in the living room area. But it was just the 2 of us. Can you say his and her bathrooms! ;) The kitchen was stocked with the utensils and cooking equipment needed. We had the fridge stocked for the 2 weeks we were there. The property is nice and secluded. With the directions provided, we drove right to it. Miguel was just a phone call away and Douglas was always around. We felt safe at the property. The wrap around porch is nice and airy. We hung out on the hammocks everyday and enjoyed the outside shower to get the sand off. The hibiscus were in bloom and very pretty. We did have a rental car, so driving to the beach was quick. Walking to the beach, it may take a little while. We had a great time there!"

  • Perfect Family Vacation

    "Having stayed at different homes in Pinillia in the past; Casa Nibbana was truly one of the best experiences we have had. The home was well equipped with everything needed to have a relaxing vacation. The kitchen and appliances were top notch and fully functional and the dinnerware was ample and in great condition. The beds were comfortable and the linens were top quality; along with enough towels for bathrooms/pool and the beach. The property manager, Georgina, met us at Casa Nibbana to show us how to work the house and when the phone had issues, sent the gardener over so we could use his cell phone. The staff was very friendly and helpful in every aspect. We had six people in total and had ample space for everyone. The home was very kid friendly and worked out great for the whole family It truly was one of the most relaxing experiences and we will defiantly be back to Casa Nibbana."

    "just visited Costa Rica with 7 of my friends. We stayed at casa bali for 10 days traveling from phoenix Arizona U.S.A. we had an amazing time and the house fit all 7 of us comfortably. the outdoor space with the pool is great. The kitchen is very well equipped and comes in handy and having a washer and dryer available at all times is a plus. It is perfectly located in walking distance from the beach but also a very short drive from Tamarindo. Christi was great with directions and quick to respond to any questions we had and the house keeper Lazaro is also very helpful and friendly both at just a phone call away. We are missing the monkey noises in the morning and the iguanas in our front yard we will be sure to visit casa bali again."

  • your own slice of paradise!

    "My Boyfriend and I recently spent 7 weeks with Gabrielle and Rick in their lovely guest house. What a treat! They are such gracious hosts and their rental was the perfect home away from home! Such lovely people. You not only have a chance to create a nice space to enjoy your vacation, you are also a 5 minute walk from an incredible beach and some world class surf breaks. The house is comfortable with all the things you would need. It's well ventilated with lots of windows and fans. The bathroom was nice, hot shower, nice breeze. The beds were comfortable and each week we had fresh towels and sheets to spruce up the house. There is air conditioning in the master bedroom that makes for a great night sleep even on the hottest nights or a great place to cool off if you need it. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas range and stove, crockpot, coffee maker, blender, and toaster oven, good size fridge. I cooked all the time and there's even a fresh fish truck that you can have come by on Thursdays! Gabrielle taught me how to make rice and beans and arroz con pollo the first week we arrived and that was such a treat. Nothing better then a home cooked meal enjoyed with a fresh breeze and the sounds of the howler monkeys and birds in the morning. Rick and Gabrielle are there when you need help but really do give you your privacy which is nice. The house has it own driveway and gate and although on the same property feels like it's separated from their home. You're close enough to have easy access to the hosts but very much in your own space. It was a little slice of heaven. I can't wait to go back. The area is nice and peaceful. Many of the beach areas are built up these days but avellanas still is small and quaint. The beach is beautiful, white sand, shady spots to hang out for the day. Amazing surf (3 beach breaks, a river mouth, and a point break depending on the swell) It's an easy 5-10 min walk to the beach with lots of howler monkeys, birds, and iguanas along the way. You can eat pizza, a great taco, a nice fish dinner all within walking distance of the house. It's not a party town which is wonderful. The people are there for the beach and the peace and quiet. If you want to have a night out you can take a shuttle from the beach to Tamarindo from 8am-6 pm for $5US and there's a bus to Santa Cruz. You don't need to rent a car the whole time which is great. This place is great! The host incredible, helpful, and kind. I highly recommend staying here."
