Best House Rental in Playa Avellanas on 4 Acres Gated

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Playa Avellanas offers at least four excellent wave breaks for surfing. Morning winds are predominately off-shore.

This beautiful, private house on 4 acres offers a deeper level of tranquility while still being close to the beach and restaurants.

When returning from the beach, you can wash off the sand in our lovely outdoor shower among the palms. The large casa blanca fans in the house keep you comfortable even on hot days and nights. Sometimes the heavenly sea breezes blow through in the afternoon and rustle the palm trees.

The many palm trees, bougainvillea and hibiscus flowers we've planted add to the beauty and ambiance. We're sure you're in for a wonderful stay.

Keywords: House on 4 acres of beautiful forest.

About The Owner

Bob and Sue live in Northern California. They have many close friends in Avellanas.

They welcome you to have a great time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Tamarindo

This is one of the most beautiful beach areas in Central America. The waves are so attractive.

Our house is surrounded by beautiful flowers and palm trees away from the dusty beach road.

What makes this house unique

The property is just far enough from beach to maintain a real sense of tranquility while close enough to walk to the water.

Words cannot describe our feelings of peacefulness in this place. Sitting in the hammocks at nite or early morning and the only thing you hear is nature...this place has all the modern conveniences c and food is just a car ride away. The beach is a whole other piece of luxury and nature and peace. Douglas is an absolute gem to have around too! DEF recommend and will be back!

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place, you get a full house (2 bedroom, 2 bath). House is about a 25 minute walk to the beach or a quick drive, so probably a better option for those with a rental car. Nice facilities, comfortable beds and hammocks, not much more you could ask for. To eat either bring good or go to Lola's, the Beach Box, or Cabinas Las Olas, all three are great with helpful staff (though Lola's probably has the best food). Also note that there is a surf shuttle that runs from Playa Avellanas to Tamarindo and back, but it doesn't run during the rainy season.

Great value!!! Secluded!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great price....worked well for our group of 5

  • 4 of 5

We had a grewt stay at Casa Bob Y Sue. Miguel was very helpful to us. The only drawback was that it was a little further than we expected from the beach (i'd say a 3-5 minute drive because of the bumpy roads.) The house was perfect for the rustic surf experience for people who want the basics- no frills. I highly reccomend Playa Avellanas. We got great surf and the beach is beautiful!

Excellent choice I can’t ask for more

  • 5 of 5

I am from Costa Rica, I have gone to a lot of surfing places but I can tell I felt like home when I was in your house, the attention Miguel and Douglas provided was outstanding. I can’t wait to request more vacations to go again.

Thanks Bob and Sue…

Relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this magical place and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a very peaceful setting surrounded by trees, flowers and plants. The wrap around porch is a great spot to relax and the hammocks are a nice touch. The outdoor shower is also nice.

It's very close to the beach and Lola's is minutes away. This is the ideal beach bar with good food and cold beer. A must see!

Close to beach yet set back so it feels far away. For those looking for tranquility, this is the spot.

Playa Avellanas

Here are directions:

Go west from the Liberia airport (right turn from airport road) Follow the signs to Santa Cruz.

Just before the bridge near Santa Cruz, turn right and follow the signs to Playa Avellanas. It's real easy and there aren't too many roads.

You will pass through the little town of San Jose de Pinilla, ( Otherwise known simply as "Pinilla") Stay on the road through the town and continue to Playa Avellanas.

You will see "Cabinas Las Olas" on your right.... continue past Cabinas Las Olas and turn left when you see "Cabinas Leon".

Go to end of that road and go left at the tee. Our house is the third one on the left if you count the corner house. You will see our sign "Casa Bob y Sue" next to our gate. Our gardener, Douglas, lives on the property and can let you in. Douglas is a trusted friend and he speaks very good English as well as Spanish. He is an excellent teacher if you want to learn more Spanish. We love our house in Avellanas very much and we're sure you will love it there too.

Here is our property manager's contact info: Miguel Guadamuz,

506-8387-1762 cell, Miguel will meet you with your keys and show you in.

Pura Vida, Bob and Sue
