Las Olas Beach House

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

House Sleeps / 4-6 people / located ON the beach

Our 2 bdrm/2 bath beach house is ideal for the active family looking for adventure off the grid in unspoiled tropical wilderness. Scarlet Macaws, toucans, monkeys and sloths are commonly seen from the lanai and adventure is just outside. Great right hand point waves when the swell is on, or adrenaline pumping adventures offered through Everyday Adventures when it's flat.

Kids (meaning, parents) enjoy playing on the beach swings, mini zipline, ping pong table, skateboard ramp and multitude of yard games.

Since you know your diet preferences, the cooking is done by you after you have shopped in Puerto Jimenez and stocked up for your stay. There are 3 local restaurants can be taken advantage of with reservations. All are w/in 15-45 minutes walking or a 10 minute drive.

About Andy Pruter

Andy has been living at Finca Sueño Verde since 2001 and had first renovated a small watchmans house into Cabina El Sol before building Cabina Las Olas from the ground up, in 2004. Andy uses his wildlife biology background in all the tours he offers with Everyday Adventures. His children, Talon and Cayenne, were born in Costa Rica and spot animals better than their Dad! They are here during summer break and extended holiday vacations.

Andy Pruter purchased this house in 2004

Why Andy Pruter chose Costa Rica

We are the MOST kid-friendly property in all of Cabo Matapalo. The zipline, giant swing, basketball hoop and ping-pong aren't even half of it! There's also incredible wildlife, flawless SURF and abundant fishing!

What makes this house unique

It's like being in a Discovery documentary swinging live from your hammock with a cold refreshment!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent 3 weeks at Las Olas Beach House. We had a amazing stay. The place was exactly how the pictures look except for a new additional deck with table and chairs and a huge sun canvas that gave us shade throughout the day. The house is very kid friendly. We had our 16 month old cruising around the whole time and she loved it. The swimming in front of the house is pretty rough from the surf however there are these amazing tide pools at low tide that our daughter swam and played in everyday. The oceanfront zone in front of the house is the perfect spot to chill out in one of the many hammocks and chairs. The surfing around this area in Matapalo is amazing. The wildlife is too. Scarlet Macaws and monkeys often visited us on the property. The kitchen is equipped with most everything you would need. We loaded up in Puerto Jiminez on food and had a taxi bring us out. Andy is next door to help out with anything you would need. He is a really fun energetic guy with almost 20 years of experience living in the area. He is kind of like the Steve Irwin (Crocodile Hunter) of Matapalo in regards to his passion for animals. We really enjoyed Andy and the house. I am sure we will be back to the Las Olas Beach House.

Location and house exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent awesome 5 nights here, (kids 8 & 11). Beaches were beautiful and fun, great access from house. Animals were absolutely amazing! We loved the tree climbing excursion, as well as giant swing, outdoor ping pong and exploring waterfalls. Open-air showers, new large deck and comfortable layout were fantastic!

Terry and Andy:

Happy New Year. Thank you again for your hospitality. We had an awesome time. Everything was as described in your listing. The house was great, the property was perfect and we can not say enough about the wildlife. The sights and sounds were incredible. You were extremely helpful sharing your local knowledge of the area. If you are into nature and a laid back atmosphere, then this is the place to stay. Next time we come we will be sure and schedule a visit to the park with you.

Return Visit To Sueno Verde

  • 5 of 5

T&A, thanks so much for hosting another amazing lifetime experience. It was great to see you and the family again. The Las Olas cabin provided us with comfort and Costa Rican style relaxation, including the hammocks, incredible open air bathroom, and sounds of the ocean to lull us to sleep. As usual, the sights on the rainforest treks were unforgettable, and we never knew termites make such a tasty snack! Next time we visit, we're going to make sure to try the tree climb. As usual, the beaches, warm water, and offerings from mother ocean made it difficult to leave. We can't wait to return to enjoy the local hospitality, natural wonders, your collective vast knowledge of the area,

and to challenge you again at horseshoes. Pura Vida!
