Playa Camaronal is a remote destination with heart and culture, measuring three miles long and extending from the mouth of the Ora River, the shore is made up of grayish colored sands broken by the occasional estuary. Lush vegetation can be admired across the landscape which is backed by volcanic hills and cliffs. The beach is never crowded, with the exception of a few local surfers and volunteers from Camaronal’s turtle hatchery… Playa Camaronal is known to have a stunning beach break which is surrounded by rocks, the break is very consistent and offers word class surf nearly year round. Playa Camaronal is known to offer fishing, surfing, and bird/wildlife watching; however, it is most famous for the pivotal role it plays in the preservation of the sea turtles. It was recently earmarked as the Camaronal Wildlife Refuge (Refugio de Vida Silvestre Nacional Camaronal). You can visit at night with a MINAE guide ($4PP) to experience the Leatherback and Pacific Ridely Turtles.

Beautiful setting away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and house are beautiful retreats that are truly away from the hustle and bustle. We enjoyed the view from the patio and our kids loved having the large pool all to themselves. The kitchen was fully stocked. Jerry was a great host, and Yorleny and Santos took very good care of the place while we were there. Playa Carillo (short drive away) was the perfect spot for boogie boarding and playing on the beach. The road in can be rough if you're not used to driving the unpaved roads in Costa Rica, but is not bad if you know what to expect. The unpaved portion is short, just a couple of miles. Finally, my children loved the 2 dogs that lived on the property. They stay out of your way, but my kids sought them out and they were so friendly.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I just returned from a week long stay at The Villa de Rancho Deluxe and our first visit to Costa Rica. It was beyond anything we imagined. We found it far more beautiful than the pictures posted here convey.

From the first night, we slept with the sliders open to the night air, and I do not think I will ever forget the astonishing gloriousness of the sunrise that first morning. There are air conditioners if you need them, but we found the night breezes, rhythmic ocean sounds, and ceiling fans made for very comfortable sleeping. An added bonus for us was Koffi, one of two resident dogs, who slept most nights on our patio.

The apartment is clean, comfortable, and attractive. It was well-equipped; we wanted for nothing. The property is beautifully landscaped and tranquil, and the patio provides the perfect observatory for viewing the abundant wildlife and breath-taking views. Every day, and well into the evening, we enjoyed the beautiful, well-maintained pool, which we had to ourselves.

Jerry and his staff, Yorleny and Santos, were very friendly and accommodating while always respecting our privacy. Jerry was helpful in advising us on what to do in the area and offering a little schooling on the ways of the road.

The location feels remote but is only a 15 minute drive from Samara if you seek crowds and activities. If that is not your thing, Playa Camaronal is a few minutes away and is a stunning beach for walking early in the morning and at sunset. For swimming, the beach at Carrillo is 10 minutes away and is perfect with coconut trees to provide shade and a place to tie a hammock, which Jerry will lend you along with beach chairs and boogie boards.

We enjoyed dining at the Project Carao just down the hill from Jerry’s. The food was freshly prepared and so delicious, and the staff so friendly.

The only downside of our vacation at the Rancho Deluxe was seeing it come to an end! We can’t wait to return!

Beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, beautiful view! We really can't say enough about our stay here, we were planning on doing a few day excursions but hard to leave the property. Swimming pool was definitely an added plus! Yorleny and santos were very helpful. Was able to watch a turtle release one evening down at the sanctuary which is just a quick walk down the "hill". Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Guanacaste! Thanks Jerry, Yorleny and santos!

Stunning location, beautiful villa, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Jerry and his home were a perfect match for our visit to Guanacaste. The views were a joy to wake up to every day. The lap pool, about 5 ft deep end to end, was amazing...clean, warm water...our daughter learned to swim! There isn't one thing we would change, and I recommend this rental to anyone. The drive to Samara was so pleasant, too. Easy to get to amenities but far enough away that we felt we were in our own private oasis. The property caretakers were gracious and helpful our entire stay, too. Don't look any this villa!!

Rancho Deluxe

  • 5 of 5

Wow...beautiful views from sunrise to sunset. Monkeys, birds and other creatures everyday

from the patio. We were not disappointed! The home owner was exceeding gracious and so helpful when we experienced some tire problems and made arrangements for us to meet the rental folks for a spare. The beach and surrounding area for early morning walks were amazing. The pool was a bonus.
