Property description

Casa Astrid, located on the beach in Cabuya, a quaint village nestled between Montezuma & Mal Pais at the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, is within walking distance of 5 restaurants, 1 Internet cafe & 2 grocery stores.

The open air cathedral ceilings ensure wonderful light & ventilation. The french doors which span the back of the house allow you to enjoy the sounds & sights of the ocean from inside. The spacious covered deck is ideal for dining or relaxing in a hammock or lounge chair. Monkeys, birds & butterflies frequent the shaded garden. Two bedrooms, one with a double bunk bed, & a built in couch provide sleeping space for up to 6 guests.

Bring your lap top to hook into our high speed Internet connection & fiber optic phone line. Enjoy the cool quiet of our external AC units in both bedrooms.

The house is within a short walk of jungle/river/waterfall hikes, snorkeling & Cabuya Island. The sea at the house is safe for kids. Montezuma is a 7km/1 hour walk along the beach.


IMPORTANT NOTE ON OPEN AIR TROPICAL HOUSES: An open air house house allows the ocean breeze as well as critters like geckos, insects and the occasional hermit crab in. Make sure to put all food away, keep your garbage covered and counters spotless or the ants will be happy to clean up for you! Please note that the air conditioning is restricted to the two bedrooms and is intended to be used with the bedroom doors closed.

THINGS TO DO: TAKE A HIKE
At low tide, take a 5 minute walk to the Magical Cabuya Island. Explore the island beaches, views and cemetery.
Walk 2km to the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and take a two hour hike through the jungle to a pristine beach.

Walk 10 minutes up the beach to the River Lajas and hike up the river to one of several waterfalls.

Walk for an hour (7km) along the beach to Montezuma and enjoy a drink at one of the many funky restaurants.

Take a two hour hike via the high road over the Cabo Blanco reserve enjoying the amazing views and take a dip at the beaches of Mal Pais.

THINGS TO DO: TAKE A SWIM: Swim in the lovely warm safe water right in front of the house at high tide. There are no currents or big waves to worry about. Make sure to bring water shoes as the bottom is rocky.
At low tide wade in the tide pools. Find an amazing assortment of shells, stones and sea creatures.

Bring your snorkel gear and flippers out to Cabuya Island to see coral and tropical marine life.

Swim in the cool pools at the mouth of the river Lajas, only a ten minute walk along the beach.

Rent kayaks form the Howler Monkey Hotel, two doors down and kayak around Cabuya Island.

Do you have kids? For $100/week we can set up our above ground pool for you. Relax and watch the kids have fun.


THINGS TO DO: TAKE IT EASY: Swing in a hammock and let the wildlife come to you. Monkeys, birds, iguanas, butterflies and geckos are regular visitors in the back yard.
Take your book and beach chair to the shady water's edge and enjoy the sound of the waves and the tropical breeze.

Build a sand castle and go beach combing with the kids. The beach changes regularly with the tide. You will be amazed at the treasures that you will find.

Take a stroll past the second supermarket and follow the signs to the Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary where Mary will introduce you to all the fascinating local wildlife.

Watch the moon rise over the ocean and see the splendid night sky unfold before your eyes right in front of the house.

Car: Not Necessary

Cabuya, the gateway to the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, is a small ocean side village which offers a wealth of natural sites to discover. Nestled along the jungle-fringed coast with a backdrop of mountains, Cabuya is great base for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing, wildlife watching and all those nature lovers looking for a place off the beaten track. It is also the ideal spot to simply unwind in a hammock and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you.

Cabuya boasts 5 restaurants, an Internet cafe, and two grocery stores which stock alcohol, produce, meat, fish and household items, all of which are within an easy walk from the house. It is also within an hours walk (7km) along the beach to Montezuma and a two and a half hour walk over a mountain to Mal Pais and the lovely playa Carmen. There is a regular bus service to Montezuma so while some visitors choose to rent a car it is certainly not essential.
