We spend one night for my husband's birthday, the place was beautiful, just right on the beach, Gina and Riley are amazing people.

The bed and the hammocks are super comfortable, difficult to decide where you want to sleep.

We had an amazing time, definitely will go back again.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 nights and loved it. The house is beautiful, and right on the beach. It feels like you are away from everything yet it has everything you need. The owners Riley and Gina are incredibly welcoming and make you feel right at home. They keep the house lovely and clean and have those little touches that make it very comfortable.

The beach outside is incredible with surf spots near by. We ate 2 nights at nearby restaurants which are in walking distance-both very good. We highly recommend the pizza night at the Italian one!

If you are looking for accommodation that is a little extra special then this is a perfect place for you.

The perfect beach front bungalow getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. The location was stunning and you are RIGHT next to the beach. Besides a stunning view, you have amazing hammock options, all the kitchen necessities to make the meals and snacks you want and a comfortable place to hangout and sleep. It is also super close to a handful of delicious restaurants and beach walks/activities. To top it off, Gina and Riley were top notch hosts. They were very generous in making sure we had everything we needed and very friendly - it was easy to be instant friend with the 2 of them. I am so glad we were able to stumble across their place on homeaway and wish them the very best in their lives. Thank you Gina and Riley :)

pure tranquility and good vibes far off everything you know

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this wonderful place for four nights in March and will definitely be back! If you have never camped on the beach, staying there is as close as you can get if you want to be comfortable and incredibly relaxed at the same time. At night, it's so quiet that the waves seem loud! The house including Riley and Gina is beautiful and has a very positive vibe to it. It has everything you could need and at the same time everything about it makes you feel far away from your everyday life. Getting there is a little difficult if you don't have a vehicle but you realize it was worth it the moment you arrive. The endlessly wide sea is right in front of you and daily you can watch both groups of surfers and pelicans enjoying life and tranquility.

Ultimate Beach Experinence

  • 5 of 5

This is the ultimate beach house. It is made entirely of driftwood and bamboo, has an amazing bar and deck that opens onto the beach (and also an upper deck), comes with hammocks, all the amenities you need, two showers (one of which is outdoors), boasts an incredible open air feel traditional in style to Rivas hut architecture, offers a full bathroom, delights with incredible high ceilings in the upstairs, and, in short, is right on the beach. Don't miss staying here if you like off-the-beaten path, low-key, exceptionally individualized handbuilt accommodations in tropical settings.

True beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a legit beach bungalow!...with the comfort of a bathroom and kitchen. :) If I could stay there forever, I would. Built right on the sand, this places comes with a welcome beer in the fridge and a bedroom loft with an open balcony so you fall asleep to the ocean breeze and sound of the waves...what more do you need? Riley and Gina were so welcoming and friendly and gave us any necessary info needed. It's around other hostels/hotels and restaurants for your needs, but once you're in the bungalow you feel like you're a miles away from anything...definitely recommend for anyone who wants to relax on island time.
