Richard and gabriela have been here since 1994, we have been married and stayed here
The Owner purchased this house in 1993
We chose because of the beauty and biodiversity and the opportunity to make Pura
Vida. And to see the most beautiful pacific sunsets while walking on a white sand beach with extraordinary seashells.
It is 4 minutes walk to the beach and the blue lagoon and to some of the best surf brakes on the gold coast.
We stayed there 4 nights. The kitchen was a big plus. Completely stocked with everything you might need. Full size fridge and gas range. You really save some money cooking in. VERY clean, and simple. AC in the main bedroom, and hot shower was a plus. We loved the hammock outside, though we wished it were a double. Property felt very safe. The walk to the beach was short. Gabriel and Richard were fantastic, if we needed something they would always help. I had a cough and Gabriel showed up with a lime, and honey, that honey from their bees was awesome. All said, we will be back.
I originally spent February of 2016 at Blue Lagoon and loved it so much, I booked it before I left for July and Aug. I had to leave two weeks early in Aug. for work and was so bummed, but I will tell you that if you are looking for piece of paradise to call your own, no matter if it's for 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months...this is the place! Avellanas is the best beach around. The beach is long and beautiful, and the water is amazing! I was there once or twice a day, which is another thing...the walk from the house to the beach is not only short, but half of your walk is on this cool little boardwalk that you have to see to believe (everyone takes pictures) and you are sure to see howler monkeys and iguanas along the way...it's the coolest! Once at the beach you can go right and have your own slice of the beach to yourself, or left and head to Lola's which I will say is the coolest bar I have ever been to, and I've been to a lot! It's world famous! If you get in the mood for some more action, there is a shuttle that runs you in and out of town (Tamarindo) several times a day. Again, this was the most amazing place and the Blue Lagoon was by far the best spot. I would meet people and they would ask where I was staying and they had tried to book it, but I got to it first, so make sure you book in advance! Finally, Rick and Gabriela, your hosts were the BEST! You couldn't ask for better people...Rick knows the ins and outs and Gabriela really helped me with my Spanish...they are now friends for life! Not sure if you can tell, but I highly recommend!
I was traveling solo and stayed here. Rick and Gabriela and Sharky the dog were very accommodating hosts. The place had everything I needed for accommodations. The walk to the beach was a pleasant one that usually involved monkey and iguana sightings, as well as interesting birds and friendly people. There is a surf shop on the way to pick up a surf board or body board and sign up for surf lessons if you are a beginner.
The beach was amazing. There are nice places to eat within walking distance of the cottage. I can't wait to go back and stay here again.
This house was everything we could have asked for and more! Gabriela and Rick were wonderful kind hosts and the area was very safe. The beach was a short walk and so was Las Olas and Lola's to grab drinks and a bite to eat.
We will certainly be going back to visit very soon!
As a solo traveler I was fortunate to be able to stay here. The house is perfect, has everything you need, it is very secure and Rick, Gabriela and their dog Sharky were wonderful hosts. Very welcoming, knowledgeable and 2 of the kindest people I have met in Costa Rica.
The beach is a short walk, and if you need to rent a surfboard it's on the way. Great waves for the beginner to expert. Lots of great places to eat in the area, Cabinas Las Olas, Lola's, Grigorios and Tamarindo is a 30 min drive, if you don't have a vehicle, there is a shuttle to get you there and back.
Staying here was the highlight of my trip and I cannot wait to return.
My husband and I stayed here for a week and loved it! The location was fantastic, only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and on the way you get to see monkeys and iguanas. The beach in Playa Avellanas is perfect for surfing, body boarding, swimming and relaxing. There are great restaurants within close walking distance and a shuttle to Tamarindo if you wish to go there. We didn't have a car and didn't miss it! The house is perfect, we were able to make meals do plenty of relaxing there and slept very well. There is a place to rent surf boards, etc within close walking distance. We cannot wait to go back and highly recommend this place to stay, Rick and Gabriela are amazingly wonderful people, we were very sad to leave.
