Quiet, comfortable

My friend and I stayed at this rustic, comfortable cabin in Playa Avellanas where we enjoyed the warmth and kindness of the property owners and the proximity to the beach and local restaurants.

Five star hosts!

And... A perfect location! Short walk to pristine beach, friendly pubs and amazing pizzas at Blu all within walking distance.

Gabrielle and Rick are a kind, fun and charming couple. Recipe sharing and interesting conversations were the highlight of our stay! Thank you Gabby and Rick!

Rustic and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Blue Lagoon. Gabriella and Richard were perfect hosts. Available, helpful, kind and so so friendly but never imposing.

The area is wonderful. A surf and nature lover’s paradise. Unspoilt with a friendly community of like-minded people.

The walk to the beach across the boardwalk is good fun and well worth it. The howler monkeys and giant crickets are remarkable.

As for the blue lagoon, it was very comfortable and clean. It’s not fancy but has everything you need for a simple and good stay.

We particularly enjoyed the outdoor space and hammock, Sharkey the pet dog, the well equipped kitchen, and the comfy beds in an air conditioned room.

We would return to the Blue Lagoon in a heart beat. Pura Vida!

Wonderful place, beach and people!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in the house for a month, and we all loved it! The house is clean and nice. Relaxing in the hammock was a favorite pastime. Not a far walk from the beach, we could carry our boards to and from without any issues. The beach itself is very nice, not a ton of snorkeling, but some fairly consistent and great waves! Two of us had never surfed before, and they found waves they could enjoy. Good breaks for intermediate and advanced as well. Gabriel and Rick are wonderful hosts, helping us out with grocery runs and teaching us how to make some delicious Tico meals! We really enjoyed our stay!

This was the most amazing week! Rich and Gabriela (and the dog Sharky) are such wonderful people. This home is fully equipped and very comfortable. We stayed for a week and would have loved to stay longer. The walk to the beach was short and fun, every time. Gabriela took her time to teach us to cook a traditional Costa Rican meal. While they live on the same property, they offer a great deal of privacy and are there if you need them...leaving you be if you don't. I always felt very comfortable and safe here. I will definitely stay again. This was just lovely. You will not regret staying here.
