  • First class experience

    "Just coming back from a wonderful stay at Casa Nibbana. The house is especially well equipped, the amenities are properly maintained, the support and people were so nice – everything was first class standard. In addition, the weather was just perfect! Strongly recommended if you don’t want bad surprises! Thanks to owners and property manager."

  • 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!"

  • FANTASTIC ADVENTURE and a GREAT, COZY HOME!!!!

    "I went on this solo adventure to Costa Rica to : 1) Learn to surf 2) Horseback ride on the beach 3) Soak in the sun 4) Eat great food 5) Read & relax and soak up more sun! 1) Surfing: Ben the owner of this terrific home is an excellent surf instructor. He is patient, kind and very informative. Ben taught me the basics with an emphasis on safety and reading the ocean. There is no "hour" lesson, Ben takes whatever time that you need for your lesson and I can vouch that he will work with you until you can barley move your arms or legs!!! It's about whatever you want from your lesson . His positive attitude and encouragement was refreshing and I can't wait to surf again. 2) Beb arranged for my horseback riding excursion. The wrangler he chose was on time, pleasant and once again "it was all about me", where I wanted to go, stopping for pictures, breaks, and letting me race down the beach. I couldn't stop smiling the entire ride! I invited Glenna, the caretaker, to join me. She helped me translate and added to my fun adventure with her kindness and friendship. 3) Soaking up the sun: The house is located a short walk to the beach. It is a very enjoyable walk, lots of monkeys, parrots and a very cool boardwalk thru the mangrove trees. I spent hours at the beach, running, walking and taking in the beautiful warm Pacific Ocean. 4) Great Food: Any direction you chose to walk there is an wonderful restaurant to dine in. Breakfast at Cabinas Los Olas turned into a almost daily ritual after my morning walk, Lola's for amazing ceviche and the best view! The Burrito Box is fresh and very good, Mauna Loa if you are craving killer tiramisu! All within a 5 minute walk..... Mauna Loa also has a very fun gift shop! 5) Rest and RELAX! : Ben and Glenna's priority is your happiness. They were perfect. Attentive while giving me my space to read, relax and soak in this beautiful country. Ben is avid about security and I was very comfortable being solo. He arranged for a private shuttle for me due to my late arrival and very early departure. Tamarindo Shuttle was on time, efficient and the drivers, pleasant . The vehicles were in excellent condition and comfortable. Due to Ben's attentiveness and concern I was able to completely enjoy myself. He is a long time resident of CR and willingly shared his knowledge. I had 6 hammocks to chose from to enjoy my books or a siesta. I CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN!! The home is very comfortable. Every room has a"

  • Traveling with Toddler.

    "We stayed at Casa Randy's for 5 nights but wish we could have stayed longer! Playa Avellanas is a very special place and this house is in the middle of the beautiful jungle. You can lay in bed in the morning and look out into the tree tops and hear the howler monkey's in the distance. The caretakers on the property are really helpful and kind and it was nice knowing that he was there to help with anything if we needed it. The house is spacious and has a great dining and living room perfect for cooking up the fresh fish we bought from the fish truck. We travelled with our 2 year old daughter and she loved every minute!"
