"We had a wonderful experience at this beautiful home in Cabuya, Costa Rica. We stayed for five weeks with a family of six, including four young children. The home is exquisite and well-appointed. We found we had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable and the outdoor space is divine. Some days we just hung around the house, enjoying the pool and the fantastic hammocks. It's true, there is no air conditioning, but we found ourselves accustomed to the heat fairly quickly. The (very clean) pool is fantastic, by the way! The owner and the caretaker, Rosa, are wonderful people. We found them to be helpful and kind every step of the way, including when we needed to leave quickly due to a family emergency. We loved the location of this home. Cabuya is quaint with beautiful shorelines and the people are so friendly. I couldn't recommend the home more!!
In terms of Cabuya, it can be helpful to know a few things. First, a car or ATV is necessary to fully enjoy the area unless you are comfortable walking long distances. There is a public bus, but it is somewhat unreliable. Visit Jenny at the Cafe Coyote is a must. Try the coffee at the Cabuya Bakery and the family-style meals at Delphin De La Luna. We found that we didn't swim at Playa Cabuya, due to the rocks, but there are numerous beautiful beaches very close by. Check out Playa Montezuma, Playa Grande, Mar Azul, Playa Carmen and Playa Hermosa."

Unbelievably awesome house in an ideal location!!!
"I cannot say enough positive things about my experience in this house. This was my SECOND time here, and I honestly can't imagine staying anywhere else in Costa Rica. First off, the house is GORGEOUS and it's so nice to have privacy. The pool is amazing and the rooftop deck is so peaceful - you can even see monkeys in the trees behind the property in the early morning or evening! The rooms are spacious, the kitchen is modern and updated, and the place is very well maintained by the staff at Ecovida, who are some of the nicest people you'll encounter. I also love being able to cook my own food at times, and/or just lounge at night and watch a movie on cable.
As far as the location goes, you're 2 blocks from the beach (an easy walk), there's a small grocery store within walking distance, it's a 10 min drive to Esterillos, where you can have drinks on the beach at Hotel Alma. It's a 30 min drive to Jaco, about 45 minutes to Manuel Antonio National Park, which is one of the most beautiful national parks in the world.
You honestly can't ask for more, and the owner of the home - Michael - is so accommodating, friendly, and helpful. I would recommend staying here to anyone who asked me!"

"This zen little getaway is perfectly secluded high in the mountainous rainforest. It was so relaxing and romantic to feel like the only two people in the world. The constant buzz of cicadas and cries of birds of prey played the perfect soundtrack for ambient white noise. I can't imagine a better backdrop to recharge one's body, mind and soul than the dramatic sunsets with a 360 view from the mountains to the Pacific. It was so obvious that Paula and Marty care deeply about their guests and their chosen home, down to each exquisite detail and the gracious hospitality we were shown."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was so clean, well maintained, and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool right outside the patio door and we enjoyed the surfing near by. The owner was friendly and helpful as well as the property manager and the security guards. I highly recommend this rental.Thank you Sam!"
