  • Amazing home, location and hospitality! We had a great stay in Punta Islita, and the treehouse was a perfect escape to be secluded in the jungle. Enjoyed seeing monkeys right from our deck! Great cleaning service as well which came every morning and left the house very clean. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting Punta Islita area! Beach is just a short walk, as well as multiple great restaurants and small market located in town. Thanks Ruth for helping us have a great vacation!

  • This was BY FAR one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at. Not only was Ruth super responsive and helpful, but she provided several resources and input to aid us in discovering the area. Doris was super sweet and helpful as well. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a gorgeous and novel Costa Rican getaway!

  • There are two reasons why it’s surprising I’m writing a review. First, because I rarely if ever write reviews. Second, because I don’t want the place to become too popular so that its hard to get a reservation in the future. However, I feel its my duty to let people know that the place is even better than it looks. The whole layout is spectacular and the location is wonderfully remote (hard to get to, but very little tourist creep which Ive found to be quite rare). You wont regret a stay there

  • Punta islita is awesome. Quiet and peaceful. The restaurant close to the house is delicious. The house is super cool and is in the jungle. So that’s a cool experience. We drove to a few beaches as the one by the house was a bit rocky for our young kids. Samara was close enough to get groceries and eat amazing seafood. We really enjoyed the area - very Authentic, tranquil and lush.

    Amanda2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s place is exactly as described and looks just like the pictures. Amazing design in this tree/jungle house!

    Punta Islita, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    This apartment is located in the small and unique town of Islita. It is very private and secluded. It is located on the back of the property under our house. It has views of the river and forest. The river flows June to Dec. and is a major bonus! It is a 3 min. drive to the tranquillo Islita beach. The space is newly built and is clean, comfortable, safe and organized. You have all the necessities for your stay. Coffee, stove, towels, bedding, and we have reliable internet & TV.
    This space has endless perks! The famous boutique Hotel Punta Islita is also located in the valley. If you stay with us you have access to the hotel pool (if you eat lunch there) as well as the hotel tours. Horseback riding, zip line, bird watching, turtle expedition and kayaking! Just ask me and I can arrange it for you. We also have great fishing and I can help arrange a fishing tour as well. There is a Scarlet Macaw breeding center in the valley and they have released 30 Macaws into the wild in Islita! You see them every day flying around and eating nuts from the beach trees. It is really special! We also have many families of howler monkeys that can be heard as well as seen and the more elusive white faced monkey. You can walk around the island at low tide and for the more adventurous you can even swim through a tunnel to the other side of the mountain. Just make sure you make it back in time. When conditions are right there is great beginner surfing in Islita and Christian will be there with boards to rent and lessons. Camaronal beach is a short drive away. The waves are famous for intermediate or advanced surfers depending on the conditions. It is also famous for turtles who come to lay their eggs! My father was a local healer and I have continued with that tradition. I have worked in the hotel for 20 years as a massage therapist. I can offer your group massages in the apartment with my very comfortable massage table. Many guests at the hotel have told me I give some of the best bodywork they have ever had, which makes me so happy to hear. I offer the massages for $65 for one hour per person. I also love to cook! I am more than happy to cook your group a typical Costa Rican breakfast for $7 a person. I can also do laundry in my home for you for an additional cost of $3 per wash load.
    Islita is a very special place dear to my heart. The town (as you can see from the photos) is filled with art and the people all know each other. There are great restaurants at the hotel and also Miguel's delicious restaurant that is one min. walking from our house and not to be missed. Also Kimbute is a short drive or walk and is typical CR cuisine. And we have the local Pulperia to buy staples.
  • Comfortable well equipped cabin in the small town of Islita. Really close to the beach and amenities such as restaurants and small shops. Our host Liseth was very welcoming even after arriving late the first night. Will definitely stay again and recommend.

    Adrian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It's a good house with everything you need. Playa islita is just a paradise. Mother nature really gave her best to this place :D Please help locals to keep it nice. Pura vida <3

    Francesco2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific small space for our family of four. Liseth invited us to a dance in town and gave us great local tips. The pool on the beach at the hotel club is very nice and made our four days here very relaxed.

    Hunter & Stratton2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Punta Islita is a wonderful small beach town to stay at and this AirBnB made our experience extra special. The place is just a short 5-10 minute walk to two delicious restaurants, which were great recommendations from Liseth. The beach is just a bit further. Liseth was incredibly nice and was very quick to respond to all messages. She also speaks English. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. She provided us with coffee and basic cooking supplies like oil, salt etc. She also hooked us up with a free horseback tour (just had to tip the guide well). We had the option of reserving bikes and getting a massage, which we partook in. The therapist who was actually her sister came to the AirBnB with a massage table. She was super nice as well and very professional. The backyard was clean and the perfect spot to sip coffee and watch animals. There was an outdoor sink, which came in handy for washing off sand. I would recommend staying here and hope to come back one day!!

    AmiLin2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Liseth is a great host. With their help, we saw baby turtles and went on a horse ride. She washed our clothes and hung them up. We felt very comfortable in the accommodation. We had everything we needed, including a rice cooker, gas stove and a large fridge with freezer. We liked to sit in the shade behind the house and down to the river - also for swimming. However, you have to prepare yourself for a shower with cold water, which you can easily get used to in the heat. We highly recommend this property.

    Birthe2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment has the necessary tools for cooking. Doña Liseth and her husband with very kind. Only the road is a bit complicated for cars.

    Carmen2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful little gem is a wonderful little town! We enjoyed our stay at Liseth’s place in the midst of town and jungle. We were greeted by a family of monkeys right outside our room! The river although not full is soothing. Overall we will definitely be back! Thanks Liseth!

    Barbara2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you enjoy being surrounded with nature, that's the place for you! We could hear monkeys in the morning and we fell asleep to the sound of birds. There's the A/C for those who can't support the heat very well. We had coffee in the apartment and it was nice to sit outside in the morning to drink it. Liseth warmly welcomed us and answered all our questions. The communication was clear and quick. The place is clean and perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. The beach is beautiful and very close. Thank you Liseth for sending us to the ranch for a horseback ride! I'll miss your place. Pura Vida!

  • Great house. Modern and efficient. Walking distance to everything. A family of howlers greeted us by the pool almost every morning. Perfect for a family stay in Islita and day trips to the surrounding area.

  • Ruths place was exactly like the pictures it was not a disappointment at all. It was so nice to have a housekeeper come in daily. It is quite a little trip from Samara, so If you have room load up on groceries before you go. The beach club is a nice bonus and the beach was amazing. Also so fun hanging out with the monkeys. We hope to return again one day.

    Lisa2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s house is truly incredible. After planning a trip like this for nearly a year it is easy to create an unattainable image of what it will be like. Everything about our stay truly met our expectations and even more. The town of Punta Islita is so worth the adventurous journey to get there. The animals and wildlife greeting us throughout our days have created memories our children will keep forever. Hummingbirds, monkeys, and bats greeted us every morning, iguanas and salamanders throughout the day, and bugs that seemed out of a dinosaur book that our son marveled at, appeared at dusk. It was like being in a story book, all while staying in a sparkling clean oasis with a beautifully cooling pool outside our doorstep. Cooking meals with new ingredients and visiting all the amazing eateries within walking distance (most within about 200 yards!). Not to mention beautiful Islita beach!! We hope to return someday soon for sure.

    Sarah2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Agua was perfect! Ruth was an amazing host - she went out of her way to make things perfect. Punta Islita and the Casa location is great. Walking distance to local restaurants. We loved every moment of our stay and didn't want to leave! The house is beautiful, and the main upstairs bedroom is pure luxury! We had iguanas, monkeys, amazing birds (including Macaws flyng over daily). The jungle gym was great to have too. Islita is a beautiful little village with a lovely church and little colourful buildings. It's short walk to the beach. The coast road and beached south of Islita are also beautiful for day trips.

    Sandra2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth's place is exactly as pictured and much more! When we arrived we were greeted with fresh fruit, cut flowers, and an immaculately clean place. The pool is perfect for lounging and swimming any time of day. The house was cleaned daily and we never went with out towels. The housekeeper is also very friendly (I wish we knew more Spanish!). The location of the house is beautiful! You truly are in the jungle here! The bugs were not nearly as bad as i thought that they were going to be. We were greeted by 6 bats sleeping by our door every morning ( I love bats so i had to sneak that in here somewhere)! I would highly recommend booking a stay here!

    Ashley2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s house is beautiful and very clean and stylish and exactly as described. The pool and grounds are amazing, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, and the bathrooms are luxurious. The bedroom set up was perfect for my family (couple in our 50s and our two grown kids). Ruth provides lots of great information and responds very quickly. Doris keeps the house sparkling and is lovely: so kind and accommodating. She showed us all the best spots to see the monkeys and was also a great communicator and patient with our attempts to speak Spanish. Punta Islita is a lovely, quiet town with a beautiful beach and great restaurants (and we are food snobs). You can walk everywhere. The beach is less than 10 minutes but does have parking if you are unable. We got groceries in Samara on the way in and then supplemented with the mini super in town. We drove from Liberia and arrived at night. The last bit of the drive was a bit bumpy and windy at night but nothing we couldn’t handle. If you are not a confident driver, you might want to arrive in daylight.

    Beth2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. We really enjoyed the area and the home.

    Robert2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We have been using Air bnb and VRBO for the past decade and this was absolutely our favourite place ever - the monkeys, the birds, the iguanas, the food, we loved all of it! Punta Islita is a tough drive but so worth it! The southern beaches are untouched and so spectacular. Thank you Ruth. We will miss you Doris! We promise that we will be back!!!

    Questa zona è una delle più belle e caratteristiche di tutta la costa rica
  • This property is absolutely amazing. My family of 6, from Costa Rica have been staying in VRBO and Airbnb properties for the past 20 years. Out of the dozens of properties we have stayed at over the years, this has been the finest property by a long shot. Like previous posts have mentioned, the pictures do not do it justice. We were totally overwhelmed by the beauty, spaciousness and open concept. Luis and his family were also exceptional, always available for any questions that we had. Many thanks and we look forward to returning in the future.

    Kirk2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is exceptional and so is its location. We were fortunate to stay for several days in this amazing place. We were 3 families, 6 adults and 8 children and we spent moments that we will not forget! The view from the swimming pool is incredible, the rooms are perfect, the photos cannot bear witness to this. Cleaning is done regularly, everything is perfectly clean. The beach, located a few minutes away and accessible from the property, is unoccupied and very pleasant. We were able to see macaws, howler monkeys, we took advantage of a few activities (boat tour, surf rental, meal organized by our hosts, visit to the macaw reserve). The place is quite difficult to access, the road in very poor condition. I strongly recommend going there during the day. It is also advisable to bring some condiments and snacks from home because grocery stores are scarce and the products quite limited. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places we have visited and highly recommend it!

    Mélanie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic house and great pool

    Phil2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location. My family and I had a great time. Second time in this place. Amazing views of the ocean and mountains. The parrots came to visit one of the trees in front of the house. It has quick and easy access to the beach and the access to use the Hotel facilities is very convenient. Daniela ans the hosts are very responsive.

    Michelle2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of place. One family member, who has traveled a lot, said this is the first time the reality is better than the advertisement. The house is very unusual in that most of it is outside. The bedrooms are inside, and air conditioned, and the kitchen and laundry are inside, but the living room and dining room are under a big, thatched roof in a very traditional indigenous style for the area, and open to the sea. The views of the ocean are spectacular, and it is a short walk down a wooded path to the beach where the ocean is crazy warm! So fun to play in the surf. The first week we were there the skies were crystal clear so the stars at night were stunning. No light pollution here. We were charmed several days when the local howler monkeys came to feed in the trees right by the yard. And the birds! Oh my goodness, so many different types of birds just right there where you can see them. There are several interesting things to do nearby depending on your interests, but be prepared. This place is pretty remote. That is part of why you can see stars and animals and birds, but you need to be aware. There is a tiny store within walking distance but the closest grocery store, which is still very small by American standards, is 40 minutes away by car over very rough dirt roads. I recommend four wheel drive. You can't just pop over and buy band aids. But if you are okay with that, this is a perfect place. And speaking of groceries, the produce is limited by American standards, but what there is is amazing! Avocado, pineapple, mango, plantains make me embarrassed by what we have going by those names. One other thing I want to share with you -- health care is different there, but so great. I had a little problem and learned that you go to a Farmacia. They have doctors on site and you don't need an appointment. So great. So I highly recommend this home and this part of the world. You won't be sorry.

    Elena2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • If you're going to Punta Islita with a group this is the place you want. We have stayed at the Hotel Punta Islita before but this house was much better for a large group. We utilized Luis and his family for local tips, massages, and cooking. All services were fantastic! Aside from the home cooked meals, dining at Don Ramiro was one of the highlights. Miguel and his family are great and the food is delicious. Another bonus is the use of the hotel beach and bar. If you tell them you're staying at "Cara Cara" they will let you open an account. If you don't tell them that, it is very difficult. Overall, the house, location, and hospitality from Luis and his family are unbeatable.

    Private room with independent entrance. The room has two single beds and a private bathroom. The room has air conditioning and shares a pool with other guests. The room is perfect for those travelers with a limited budget but eager to enjoy a nice and quiet place. The room does not have a kitchen or refrigerator, but guests can use an outdoor kitchen.
    The room is located on the property where we live, away from the main road, but close enough to visit the beaches, restaurants, or shop in supermarkets. Guests can enjoy a simple breakfast, which consists of pancakes, coffee, and fruits. Breakfast is served at 8:00 a.m. If you want to eat breakfast later, it must be agreed in advance.
    Bejuco is a beautiful and quiet area, which allows you to relax and also enjoy the typical atmosphere of Guanacaste. Bars, restaurants, and supermarkets are within a short drive. Despite being a very small area in Guanacaste, there is a variety of restaurants; such as, Pizza Tree (Italian pizzeria built on a tree), El Barco (Restaurant facing the beach that offers different types of alcoholic and natural drinks, and different types of dishes), To Go Ruta del Sol (Hindu food restaurant with options for vegetarians), Los Corrales (Bar and Restaurant with typical dishes), Laguna Mar (Bar and Restaurant that offers gourmet style dishes), among others. The area is characterized by its artisanal fishing, which means that you can find fresh fish and seafood every day, which are bought directly from the fishermen.
  • A very good stay, we enjoyed the swimming pool, in which we were finally alone, and the good and generous breakfast. Address I recommend

    Anne2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant stay we very much appreciated the air conditioning and especially the swimming pool! The staff present on site speak only Spanish but are very pleasant and discreet, Maria quickly answered my questions by message. Outstanding value for money

    Eva2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, in the middle of nature, in a quiet position, in a small village with supermarket, bar-restaurant. A few kilometers from Punta Islita, Playa Corozalito and Camaronal refuge. The rooms are spacious and clean with everything you need. The host is very helpful. Super recommended little paradise for a regenerating break!

    Serena2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very quit place with stunning view

    Jens2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best accomodation we found in costa rica at this price point. We would have stayed longer if Maria had space for us. We were so pleasantly surprised. And we used the yoga deck too, added bonus. So happy with this place.

    Zev2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place and a very good breakfast. Thanks a lot :-)

    Steffi2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place in Puntarenas area with a beautiful view and all the facilities you need. The room was tidy, had airconditioning, a tv and the beds were very comfortable. There is an outside kitchen which you can use for cooking and if you need to cool down there is a pool. The owners are very helpful and respond quickly to all your questions. A perfect getaway when on the (sometimes challenging) road, I would definitely come back here in the future!

    Ernst2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Once you get to find it this place is well worth it (4x4 required even if the track is good). Staff very welcoming and friendly. Magical place in an exceptional setting. Waked up by the animals, breakfast by the pool, lazing in the sun, quiet and pleasant place.

    Hi everyone, and welcome to Casa de Charlie. It's a beautiful property right on the beach side, with a very nice garden and a rancho (beach house), looking at the ocean as you wake up. It's a nice place where I like to keep things relaxed and I am always smiling and with positive energy. Close to the center of Samara, everything you need can be found close from the house, at walking distance.
    It's a very friendly house, where you'll feel like you are invited to spend the night, and not just a place where you leave your things and come back for the night. I enjoy sharing moments with anyone who is looking to create some good memories of their trip.
  • Charlie’s place is right on the beach with an amazing location. Charlie is a great host and is helpful in many ways.

  • Beautiful place, great beach front location, a little piece of paradise. The perfect way to travel cheap and enjoy this wonderful part of the world. Nothing fancy, just what we were looking for. Super friendly host and the cutest puppy and kittens.

    Corina2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice time at Charlie’s place. He was a great host, very friendly and forthcoming. The location is right on the beach, where you can enjoy cocktails from the restaurant next door. Great place to chill.

    Martin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is about location and a great host and value. I am definately coming back

    William2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charlie a crack, the best thing is that you are at the beach and the good vibes of the environment, it is not a Hostel, it is a real guest house to interact and share experiences with other people. only 3 rooms. Cool

    José Pablo2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice and quiet place to spend a family break. We hope to return soon. Excellent attention of the administrator.

    Alejandro2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodation and facilities, ideal for resting and relaxing, the room is very well equipped with an induction template for cooking (if you are going to bring your own pots make sure they are induction or they will not serve you), a small refrigerator, coffee maker, comfortable beds and the bathroom has hot water although it is not necessary to use it. The grooming staff (Maria Elena and Jessica) are always attentive, they got us chairs for the beach and an umbrella too! The place has a very well maintained and neat pool and our baby loved it. The beach is 1 minute by car, it is very quiet but you have to be careful with the surf currents, next to the apartments there is a soda where they cook very rich and at 50 meters there is a mini super where you can find everything What they occupy for cooking. We will definitely return, we fell in love with the place!

    David2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our contact at all times was with Jessica, the girl in charge of the place. Everything was clean, spotless. She gave us very good advice for our stay and was always attentive to anything we need. The room is like the photos. Tiny but clean and comfortable. The kitchen very well equipped. I recommend it!

    Karen2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • I loved the place, we played the whole place for ourselves so we had a lot of peace of mind. The cabin was very well equipped and the bed was super comfortable. Very close to the beach (which was very nice and quiet), too bad that we were only one night would return without thinking about it !! The soda next door has very good breakfasts

    Cindy2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the epitome of what CR is, and should be. The photos don’t do any justice. When you wake up in the morning the sun and the pool makes you feel like you’re in the promised land. The beach is a short walk and every view is breathtaking. This place is miraculous. If I’m ever building a house in CR ; I would definitely copy all the attributes of this place.

    Guy2019-11-11T00:00:00Z

  • Very beautiful cabaña with amazing views. Loved the open air shower, if lucky you can watch monkeys while showering! Very hospitable hosts, lots of tips about beaches and other things! Only disadvantage is the location right beside the road. Not a lot of traffic though, so you don't hear that much. Definately recommended, just keep in mind it's a little remote 😊

    Linde2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect spot if you love living in and with beautiful nature. Alejandro and his parents love to share their knowledge about the Costarican way of life. The house is big, has everything you need and a gorgeous view! We have already slept at many places over the world, but this is for sure one of them we 'll never forget!

    Hilke2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great ocean view, very good dinner cooked by Alejandros mother

    Sonja2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The best view of Punta Islita, super hospitable, and spacious and clean cabin.

    Carolina2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt better than what is seen in photos, this cabin is beautiful and with an incredible view. It has all possible amenities, especially if you want to avoid going to restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped. Take into account how rustic it is so there will be insects and constant animal sounds, but nothing to bother if they are prepared. It is quite private despite being on the side of the road and if they need anything they have the hosts nearby and with all the provision.

    Vanessa2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • My Favorite ❤️❤️❤️, Quite simply. For those who know how to appreciate simple things full of character. Would be the perfect place for a honeymoon.

    Guylaine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Alejandro’s place - the views are worth a million at least, as well as the host’s hospitality. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling that way! And don’t miss out on the breakfast offer :)

  • We were very well received by Carlos and Beatriz. The apartment conforms to the photos and it feels very good. Everything is very clean and the terrace is very pleasant. We had the pleasure of watching howler monkeys at the bedroom window. We recommend this accommodation without hesitation.

    Lucas2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location. Lots of wildlife with just enough amenities within walking distance. The beach is not crowded and offers great swimming as well as nice walks. We would certainly stay there again.

    Ken2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos and Beatriz win the trust of people very easily they are very beautiful people! We would definitely return, the place is easily accessible and very close to the beach

    Michael2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos and Beatrize are what hospitality means! by far the best hosts of our costa rica trip. They gave us many tips, everything was prepared for us and we had everything we needed in the apartment (where you can sometimes see the monkeys in the trees). We literally were in love with their special place they both made out of it. Wish you 2 all the best! :)

    Alessia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Carlos and Beatriz Home was filled with serinity and beautiful sound of birds. The House was super Cozy with a Full equipped Kitchen. They were very helpful by providing us with useful tips im acrivities and Food . Thank you Guys for making our stay so Special .

    Eva2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos and Beatrice are wonderful hosts and will make you feel very welcome. Playa Carrillo is a lovely, quiet beach - perfect for walking and swimming. Rent a chair, bring a good book, and have a Pipa Fria while you relax under the palms.

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    At just 150 metre from the water, La Posada is the closest listing to the Carrillo Beach front. The Private Terrace Room is a great way to enjoy La Posada B&B. The room includes a private bath with hot water shower and a/c. You'll have access to open spaces where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, which is included and a spectacular view of a lush tropical jungle. Relax on the beach and take in some of the most spectacular sunsets and views in Costa Rica.
    The space is exclusive and pristine, transporting your senses to nature's most essential elements. There's an amazing view of the ocean and our lush tropical jungle. The sunsets are mind blowing and you can witness nature's creation with a good glass of wine or a cold beer on our terrace. Come sunrise, you can enjoy a splendid Costa Rican breakfast.
    Located on the Nicoya Peninsula, Playa Carillo is lined with palm trees and chalk-colored sand. The shore is typically not very crowded, making it the perfect place to relax and escape from stressful days at work. While relaxing, take in some amazing views of the lush mountain ranges in the distance, which provide a unique backdrop for visitors to the beach. While Playa Carrillo is not as developed as some of the nearby beaches, this can actually be beneficial for tourists looking to enjoy a number of outdoor recreational activities. Snorkeling and swimming are two of the most popular forms of recreation at the beach, with the spectacular coral reef found beneath the water's surface. Other popular sports to participate in at Playa Carrillo include kayaking, jet skiing, water skiing and sport fishing. Playa Carrillo in Guanacaste has also received the prestigious Blue Flag award due to its efforts to maintain the site as one of the cleanest beaches in Costa Rica. Located three kilometers south of Sámara Beach, the town of Carrillo itself boasts an enjoyably laid-back atmosphere on a small, comfortable scale. Distractions and noise in the town are minimal, making it the perfect location to wind down from other exhilarating days spent throughout the country. Playa Carrillo is a popular destination for both international travelers and Ticos alike, as the locals often spend much of their time on the beach, particularly during some of the major holidays in the country. There are also plenty of restaurants, hotels and nightlife options close by in Sámara.
  • Very clean, safe and good breakfast.

    Justine2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I really enjoyed this cozy B&B. The room was clean and the hot shower was nice :) We loved the views from the breakfast area and saw many birds from there in the morning.

    Casa de dos dormitorios y un bano. Apartamento completamente equipado con todo lo necesario. Acceso a piscina de uso comun (se comparte con otra casa similar) y un rancho BBQ. Rodeada de mucha naturaleza y con excelentes visitas de la montana y el mar.
    Estamos ubicados en Playa Bejuco, Guanacaste. La propiedad se encuentra a 40 minutos de Playa Carrillo y 55 minutos de Playa Samara. La calle para ingresar a la propiedad es privada, y siempre hay alguien vigilando la propiedad, lo que lo hace un lugar muy seguro a la hora de elegir donde quedarse. La villa esta rodeada de naturaleza y una vista muy linda hacia Playa Bejuco. El espacio es muy amplia y la zona es muy tranquila. La ubicacion hace de este lugar, el lugar perfecto para relajarse dado que se encuentra sobre una montana, lejos de la carretera principal; pero, lo suficientemente cerca en carro para recorrer las playas, visitar los restaurantes, o hacer compras en los supermercados.
    Bejuco es una zona preciosa y tranquila, te permite relajarse y tambien disfrutar del ambiente tipico de Guanacaste. Bares, restaurantes, y super mercados se encuentran a una corta distancia en carro. A pesar de ser una zona muy pequena en Guanacaste, existe variedad de restaurantes; tales como, Pizza Tree (pizzeria italiana construida sobre un arbol), El Barco (Restaurante frente a la playa que ofrece diferente tipos de bebidas alcoholicas y naturales, y diferentes tipos de platillos), To Go Ruta del Sol (Restaurante de comida Hindu con opciones para vegetarianos), Los Corrales (Bar y Restaurante con platillos tipicos), Laguna Mar (Bar y Restaurante que ofrece platillos estilo gourmet), entre otros. La zona se caracteriza por su pesca artesanal, lo que significa que podras encontrar pescado y mariscos frescos todos los dias, los que se compran directamente de los pescadores.
  • A very nice and quiet space to spend some time. The apartment is very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked with essentials. The views are quite nice as well. As is the pool! As others may have stated, stock up before you come here, and there is about a little less than 20 miles of dirt road you will drive on (if coming from Carretera 21). Well worth it all!

    Andrew2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! Our hosts even helped us get local fish for dinner!

    Jen2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for 5 weeks and we will diffently return. The house had everything we needed. Marias hospitality was top notch! Best host we have ever experienced on Airbnb. Her staff Pushy our pool cleaner / gardener and Greta our maid were fantastic! Our Villa was spotless!! Upon arrival we had basket tea, coffee, sugar, honey etc. The beds and pillows super comfortable and quality sheets. We saw so much cool wildlife here, monkeys, toucans, macaws, praying mantis, locus. San Miguel beach was our favourite about 15 minutes away. Make sure you rent a 4x4 for the typical costa rica roads and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this villa. Pura Vida

    Shamari2019-06-05T00:00:00Z

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    A luxurious fully appointed 3 bedroom/3.5 bathroom house with living room, full kitchen, and dining area. Perfect for a family or group of friends who want a comfortable and private place to enjoy their time in Costa Rica. Surrounded by forested mountains with a great view of the Pacific Ocean, and near world-class, uncrowded surf. Daily cleaning service is provided; cooking and BBQ grill services are also available. Transportation and tours can be arranged with local, trustworthy businesses.
    Located in the secluded Nicoya Peninsula in the Costa Rican province of Guanacaste, you will awaken to the sounds of Howler monkeys in the trees, step outside to see migrating whales from the comfort of the pool, and witness the beautiful Scarlet Macaws as they make their way through the trees. You can spend your days at Islita laying by the pool or ocean, reading in a hammock, or going on surfing, kayaking and fishing adventures. On your short walk to the beach, you can encounter deer, coatis and countless tropical birds, or you can lay by the pool and watch these amazing creatures as you sun bathe or sip on a drink. If you’re searching for unique experiences in this remote part of Costa Rica, you can go to neighboring Camaronal Wildlife Refuge to see nesting sea turtles at night and newborn hatchlings at dawn or dusk, or surf on its world class, powerful and uncrowded waves. Similar experiences can be found at Corozalito beach, where surfing and turtles abound and even fewer people visit. In addition, our friendly local operators offer multiple tours including ocean and mangrove kayaking, horseback riding, surfing lessons, stand up paddle boarding, sport fishing, and yoga. The small luxury hotel next door also offers zip lining tours and a cocktail bar on the beach. For those in search of a cultural experience, the local town of Islita, within walking distance, offers community guided tours of the women's art cooperative and the outdoor art museum. You may also request to take Tico (Costa Rican) cooking and tropical cocktail mixing lessons. Typical Costa Rican activities such as cow milking, cattle driving and Guanacastecan (the region) rodeo can also be arranged in the neighboring towns. Guests of Villa Jalapa will enjoy all the comforts of home with on site property management to meet every vacation wish you could possibly have.
    Islita is a small, extremely friendly community. You can visit the town's museum with local arts and crafts, play soccer at the community field and buy anything from ice-cream to sunscreen at the mini market. The town's colorful police building, church and primary school showcase some of Islita's unique flavors. Wherever you go in the town of Islita, beautiful local artwork will greet you and make you feel welcome.
  • You can’t go wrong the place is amazing we are coming back

    Lars2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, just wow. After many miles on winding dirt roads we weren’t sure what to expect. Once we made it to the driveway we were blown away. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s the perfect layout for privacy and togetherness - 3 separate bungalows with a shared living room/fully stocked kitchen. The beautiful infinity pool overlooking the jungle and ocean was just what we needed on hot days. We spent much of our time in or near it. The various tropical birds and animals on the grounds were fascinating to see. Bring binoculars! The house staff Lizbeth and Albaro were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend getting some or all meals cooked by Lizbeth - they were delicious. The only small downside was the WiFi only worked in the living room/kitchen and not the bedrooms. But it became an opportunity to just unplug, read books, and enjoy our time at this stunning villa. Highly recommend.

    Zina2019-11-26T00:00:00Z

    Tito2018-11-25T00:00:00Z

Highly recommend for a big group as you get your own bungalows but still have a space to all hang out together. We honestly can’t wait to come back and spend more than 3 days here! The hotel next door was very accommodating and let us use all their amenities.

We enjoyed getting to know Lisbeth and Alvaro and appreciated all they did to make our stay so pleasant. Lisbeth is a wonderful cook and is very knowledgeable about the area. We are already planning a return trip and highly recommend Villa Jalapa!

    Dee Dee2018-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Diego and Estebans Villa Jalapa in Playa Islita is an amazing house with beautiful views and very cool interior decorating. The house looks and feels brand new and the facilities within the house is very useful and easy to use. The pool is cool and cleaned every day. The two helpers Lisbeth and Alvaro takes relly good care of the guests and keeps the house clean and has good local tips. The villa is neighbour to the excellent hotel Punta Islita, so a good place for drinks and dinner. Also there are two good restaurants within walking distance, Kimbute and Ramiro. Playa Islita is small and not overrun. Playa Carillo is very, very nice and about 30 minutes away. You have to know that the Villa Jalapa is one main house and then 3 annexes which i very cool, but if you have small kids like us, it might be a little difficult if they cannot sleep alone. We would love to come back to this extremely beautiful area and wonderful and welcoming house.

    Casa Marelie is a unique home with stunning ocean views overlooking the bay of Carrillo. The house is located on a quiet road right in the village of Carrillo, just a few minutes’ walk to restaurants and 750m from the beach. The house was designed and built by a Swedish architect and was known as Casa Sevana until 2018.
    The house is very spacious and offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has twin beds, and the third is furnished with a bunkbed. There is also an inflatable bed available for extra guests. The bedrooms all have a/c, large closets and sliding doors leading to the pool and terrace areas. On the second floor you will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with beautiful wooden cabinets opening to the living room area equipped with tv and high speed internet. This special home is tastefully furnished and decorated. The house boasts beautiful teak cathedral ceilings throughout. Facing the ocean, a large terrace with ocean and sunset views will entice you to sit and relax while gazing at the ocean or watching the numerous birds and animals roaming the area. A soft ocean breeze is always flowing throughout the house. Enjoy the privacy of the beautifully landscaped garden. From the terraces to the 25ft long sparkling pool and BBQ gazebo, this tropical paradise is a gem!
    The village of Puerto Carrillo has some nice restaurants (among them a great Argentinian steakhouse) that you can reach on foot. Playa Samara is a few minutes by car - there you'll find lots of nice cafés and restaurants right on the beach.
  • My family stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the pool, hammock, watching monkeys, birds and the resident iguana. The kitchen is well stocked, the outdoor furniture is comfortable, the pool stays refreshingly cool. The quick drive to Samara is easy and the beaches are within walking distance or quick drive. All good.

  • We were only there for a few days, but we were able to recover very well. The view is beautiful and heavenly. The house is well equipped and lovingly furnished. Also the pool and garden are very nice. In the morning you can hear and see the howler monkeys on the trees and the tropical birds. Bringing a pair of binoculars is worthwhile. You can walk to the sea and nice restaurants are also nearby. We felt very comfortable and would be happy to be a guest in Casa Marelie again. Thanks!

    Rom2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic accommodation, with stunning views, great facilities, a real home from home. A highlight was being able to watch a big family of monkeys in the surrounding trees, whilst sat in the garden. Amazing! We also had other wildlife joining us in the garden, the children loved it. The area is peaceful but convenient for walking to the beautiful Carrillo beach, local restaurants, supermarket and only a 15 min drive from Samara.

    Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    This beautiful studio is made of wood, built on the second floor. The studio offers an ample space where you can relax, do yoga or simply enjoy the panoramic view of the ocean and the jungle. The studio is quite spacious, has 4 single beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and two toilets on the outside. Cable TV, WiFi, Air Conditioning and use of the pool are included.
    Spacious, private, safe, surrounded by nature, panoramic views of the ocean, located in a quiet environment away from the main road (it is located on a mountain), but close enough to the beaches, supermarkets, bars, and restaurants within a short distance by car.
    We are located 40 minutes from Playa Carrillo and 55 minutes from Playa Samara, in one of the quietest and most beautiful areas of the Nicoya Peninsula. Within a short drive, you can find supermarkets, restaurants, bars, and beautiful beaches. Bejuco is a very quiet area away from the bustle of the city or large numbers of tourists. Here you can enjoy being accompanied by a few people on the beach, and probably, if you get lucky, you can have the beach all to yourself. Can you imagine enjoying something so beautiful and peaceful in just one place? The beaches are very extensive, surrounded by lots of nature, with palm trees that provide shade or even picnic tables. In the months of August to November, you can be part of the famous "Arribadas" (Turtle Nesting) and even help to release the newborn turtles into the ocean.
  • Spectacular place, good facilities, breakfast and room. I have no complaints, Maria was super attentive and helped us with everything. Yes, a 4x4 car is necessary and if you want to cook, take the things bought from before, since in the nearby supermarkets there is not much variety.

    Arianna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Undoubtedly an amazing place to be and enjoy the nature of the site. An apartment that lends itself to an unforgettable stay. Maria was great with everyone and helped us a lot to get there.

    Marco2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We originally booked this place by mistake (we thought it was closer to Samara than it was).... but it turned out to be the highlight of our entire 2 week trip across Costa Rica. It was remote, quiet, and a magnificent setting... Beautiful view of the ocean! Locals are the kindest people on earth! The hospitality from the owners was top notch. They had a beautiful yoga space, wonderful outdoor kitchen, perfect outdoor fitness area, great pool, great family, and nice dog. If peace and quiet (away from the more popular touristy areas, then this is for you). Wild Costa Rica is all around this place... uncountable birds, howler monkeys, and beautiful vistas. Outstanding place and we hope to return with friends!!!

    Bruno2019-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • A place with beautiful view, we loved both the pool area and the balcony area above, we could have a good time among friends, do yoga, enjoy a variety of insects (for those we like), pool and have a good rest.

    Pauly2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed Monica’s place and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay near several wonderful beaches - Playa Carrillo, Samara and Islita. Adrian and his family were close by if we needed anything and were very helpful. We enjoyed many morning coffees on the shaded patio while watching the colorful birds and variegated squirrels in the nearby trees and listening to the howler monkeys not far away. The road between the house and Samara is paved and in good condition which made our twenty minute drives to town for dinners etc. relaxing and enjoyable. Communication with Monica was easy and she was quick to respond to any questions we had - making sure our wifi was fixed promptly when it went down one day. We found her place to be as she described and have great memories of our time there.

    Dennis2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Melissa2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    Alexander2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location a few minutes drive from Carrillo Beach. Fully suitable for any type of vehicle. The house is very large and spacious, perfect to go with the whole family. They accepted us to take our dog that is part of the family which we greatly appreciate. The communication was always very fast and the attention of Don Adrian and his Adriana Leaf who gave us the keys was excellent too. Monica's location is highly recommended. Thank you so much for everything!

    A little studio on the last floor of a condominium building ubicated on a hill at the entrance of the beach of San Miguel, at 5 minutes walking to the ocean. There is a bunk beds for 3 pax in the main room and 2 mattereses in a mezzanine. A small but very nice place with a great view.
    The studio offers the confort a an appartment in the city, situated into the nature. Playa San Miguel has a beautiful beach, almost virgen and still very few visitors, with a magnificent estuary.
  • Fantastic calm and beautiful retreat from the buzz-buzz of Samara, with an idyllic pool side view of the ocean, a beautiful breeze, all amenities one needs, and a towering view from the top floor apartment of the entire region, including the sea. Fantastic co-residents in the building and a beautiful deserted beach. A must and difficult place to leave. Merci Vincent.

    Ashley2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect hidden Paradise. Unbelievable time here. We feel on top of the world here with an amazing view

    Wylder2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great condo at the top! Tranquility assured, close (1km) to a great restaurant (in La Javilla) and a practically deserted beach! The swimming pool is open until 10PM, perfect for cooling off before going to bed. Guard at the entrance all night. Great communication with Vincent! Thanks again for the condo!

    Jean-François2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • I fully recommend the place. It was awesome! Everything works perfectly. We didn’t have any issue. The place was totally clean, we were able to cook, the pool was nice, but most important, the view and the peace you can feel in there was extraordinary.

    Daniel2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to the beach. Suitable place to stay with children. Very friendly and helpful host. Everyone who lived in the apartment block was also extremely friendly and helpful as well as the janitor. The place is remote and one needs a car to get around and go shopping. Very suitable place for people enjoying the quiet and nature. We saw more wildlife around the apartment than we saw in any national park.

    Geoffrey2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice apartment with a great view on the ocean! We had a very great time there! We can definitely recommend this apartment! Pura Vida!

    Casa Laureles, very close to Playa San Miguel, is an ideal place to recharge your batteries after a tour in Costa Rica.
    The room facilities correspond to CH standard. We produce our own electricity and thanks to a battery backup, we are independent from the power grid for a few hours and it has sufficient hot water at all times.
    If you are looking for a quiet place, you are right here. Our house is located in the middle of the jungle and yet not completely secluded. The Playa San Miguel, with a few kilometers long sandy beach (one of the most beautiful in CR) can be reached by car in about 5 minutes.
  • Very nice quiet house, beautiful swimming pool and pleasant welcome!

    Elodie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nothing to say, it is the top in all areas. Not to stop there would be a mistake! We will definitely come back if we come back to the area.

    David2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb place to enjoy the quiet country. Here the expression Pura Vida takes on its full meaning. The bedroom with bathroom is just perfect, everything is ultra clean and functional .... with the added bonus of the pool to enjoy the sunset in front of the peaceful. It's even better than in the ad. Ernesto could add that the breakfast, with lots of products prepared by his wife (bread, brioches, jams ...), is just delicious! If you are in the area, this is an essential address!

    David2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Ernesto & Verena (& Chili the ridgeback) are friendly hosts. They've created a beautiful, clean and peaceful retreat up in the hills with a beautiful view. We were looking for a place to get away from our busy, dusty & crowded beach life further up the coast and at Casa Laureles we found the place to just rest & relax. We'll be back!

    Terry2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • awesome place, the view from the pool is incredible and the breakfast is really good!

    Jose2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very charismatic people and with a very attentive treatment, they can have the peace of mind of consulting them or asking them for recommendations if they need anything. The place is beautiful and cozy and has an amazing view. I definitely recommend this place if you want to disconnect from the city and get more in touch with nature. The room has the necessary amenities and you can have the security and tranquility of leaving your belongings in it.

    Vanessa2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great experience

    Fred2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We are hoping and wishing that we get to come back here one day. We absolutely loved it here and the owners couldn't have been friendlier, including their dog, Chilly. The room is fantastic, has a safe and a fridge. The bed is super comfy and there are loads of plugs. The mosquito netting is really of great quality and you should make sure to keep it closed on the terrace door to keep the noisy geckos out. The infinity pool is to die for. We had to have a last dip before checking out just to make the most of it. And definitely go for the breakfast! Homemade bread and jam - which is enough to convince us, but there was also lots of fruit, fresh coffee, fresh juices and eggs. Totally worth the 9 dollars per person. You will not get a better breakfast in the region. The road up is a dirt road, we had a 4x4 (but didn't have to use the 4x4 option, probably because it was dry season) and it was a shaky 45 minutes from the last asphalt road. But it is a beautiful drive and totally worth it. Bathroom is nice and spacious but has no door for privacy, fine for a couple but incase friends share the room, it is nice to know. Absolutely loved hearing the howler monkeys in the early morning. The drive to the closest beach is pretty quick, I think it was less than a 20 minute drive. It is worth filling up the gas tank at Samara before hitting the dirt road as there are no gas stations close to the Guesthouse. Totally cannot wait to go back there.

The property is located a short 150m walk to Playa Carrillo. Enjoy A/C, hot water shower, kitchenette, cable tv, plenty of on site parking. Please keep in mind that breakfast is not included, but offered for a great price.

    In height, 120 meters from the beach, quiet and safe low buildings, pleasant scenery, some restaurants and places to visit. The beach is unique, no buildings, palm trees and spaces to enjoy and relax.
  • Lau and Marcello (who cooks wonderful food in the tiny restaurant for dinner) could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. The place has a magic and serene feel to it that was just exactly what we were hoping for. Thanks for helping to make our honeymoon so wonderful!

    Jill2016-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lautaro was an amazing host and the property was perfect for our little family. Breakfast was great, dinner was delicious, the property was clean, and everyone was very friendly. Lautaro was very helpful in helping us arrange transportation, recommended things to see, and always made us feel welcomed. The bungalow was beautiful and worked well for 2 adults and a toddler. Everything was excellent!

    Veronica2016-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect. Everything came together for a pleasant stay. The beautiful beach within 5 minutes walk. Iguanas, monkeys and hummingbirds are present for the rich and delicious breakfast on the sea view terrace. The hammocks that you can take to install them between two palm trees on the beach are a must. Lautaro is a high-end host. A magical and relaxing place we strongly recommend. Here Pure Vida meaningless :-)

    Olivia & Benoit2015-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view, short walk to the beach, super accommodating!

    Coby2015-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • This was the most beautiful hotel to stay in Costa Rica, very close to playa Corillo, which I think was the most beautiful beach. We saw a lot of special birds, colibris, big Iguanas and crocodiles around here. Nice people working here, I would recommend this to everyone. We loved our stay here!

    Susanna2015-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • La Posada is a lovely rustic bed and breakfast with stunning ocean views from the great indoor/outdoor dining room and some of the bedrooms. Corrillo beach is less than 5 minutes walk and is one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to. You can take walk, swim or take one of the hammocks that is provided and swing beneath the palms. Lautaro is a charming and attentive host and made me feel very welcome. He gave me excellent suggestions of things to do such as go see the sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach at Camaronal nature reserve. He also kindly took me to watch him feeding the crocodiles in the river - amazing! Breakfast of coffee, fresh fruit, eggs and toast was excellent. The rooms are simple but clean. The garden view "standard" rooms are very simple but very good value. The ocean view rooms are much nicer with AMAZING views. All rooms have en suite bathrooms and air conditioning. I felt very comfortable and safe staying there as a solo female traveler. I highly recommend staying at La Posada. Wonderful!

    Becky2015-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lautaro Is a peaceful soul and communicated with us to met our needs very well. He has developed a tranquil Inn. Breath taking views from bedroom to community area! This a short walk to the most beautiful beach. We went every day for hours, so relaxing! On our departure day my vehicle had a flat tire Laut jumped right to changing it out for the spare one and gave us insight as to how to remedy the situation. Thanks for a wonderful time in Carrillo!

    Shirley2015-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Tghe Posada Inn hosted by Lautaro was an excellent experience and exactly as described. This was one of the bvest managed properties. I can't say enough good about the professional and warm manor of Lautraro,s manager Martin. Martin gave me just as much direction as I needed and realized what I didn't know but needed. Martin sure know the area well. The rest of the staff is great too; friendly and warm. I would not hesitate to stay again.

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    House with two bedrooms, each with private bathroom. The house is spacious and fully equipped. The capacity is 4 people in two double beds (can be individual upon request) and a sofa bed quite comfortable. The house is on a mountain among other villas that we have for rent; however, far enough that guarantees the privacy of the guest.
    We are located in Bejuco Beach, Guanacaste. The property is 40 minutes from Playa Carrillo and 55 minutes from Playa Samara. The road to enter the property is private, and there is always someone watching over the property, which makes it a very safe place to choose when looking for a place to stay. The villa is surrounded by nature and a very nice view of Bejuco Beach. The house is very spacious and the area is very quiet. The location makes it the perfect place to relax since it is on a mountain, away from the main road; but, close enough to go to the beaches, visit the restaurants, or shop in supermarkets.
    Bejuco is a beautiful and quiet area, which allows you to relax and also enjoy the typical atmosphere of Guanacaste. Bars, restaurants, and supermarkets are within a short drive. Despite being a very small area in Guanacaste, there is a variety of restaurants; such as, Pizza Tree (Italian pizzeria built on a tree), El Barco (Restaurant facing the beach that offers different types of alcoholic and natural drinks, and different types of dishes), To Go Ruta del Sol (Hindu food restaurant with options for vegetarians), Los Corrales (Bar and Restaurant with typical dishes), Laguna Mar (Bar and Restaurant that offers gourmet style dishes), among others. The area is characterized by its artisanal fishing, which means that you can find fresh fish and seafood every day, which are bought directly from the fishermen.
  • Perfect place to disconnect from the city and near beautiful beaches. The hospitality and attention of Maria and her husband were incredible.

    Bryan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    This room has a single bed, private bathroom with cold water and fan . It's one of the rooms of the hotel that is located beach front. Your front door is only steps away from the sand, where there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beach.
    On the beach there are several sun beds, lounge chairs and hammocks that you are more then welcome to use, all of this only few steps from your room.
    The location is what makes this place so special, located beachfront in the more quiet and green part of Samara beach. With a few steps from you room you are with your feet in the sand and have lots of space to relax and truly enjoy the beautiful beach. It’s still close enough to the town so that in a 5 minute walk you can enjoy all the amenities and nightlife it has to offer. We are not surrounded by hotels, busy bars or restaurants and there is hardly any traffic on our small beach road.

Hotel staff made everything easy, maid services daily and fresh flowers placed in every room and bathroom daily. Highly recommend!

  • Mario’s villa in Punta Islita is gorgeous and perfectly situated inside a luxury resort but is completely independent. It’s the best of both worlds. The villa is gorgeous, the view is amazing and the daily housekeeping is fantastic, adding special touches to the already wonderful experience. We’ll be back.

    Angela2018-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location in a well run resort with access to fabulous surfing beach. House comes with great maid and gardener. A few eating options nearby, but only very basic shop. We easily made and ate breakfast, but cooking fully for yourself lunch and dinner would be a bit more difficult . Reccomend shopping at Nicoya on the way in. Couldn't reccomend this house more. Host attentive to needs.

  • The location of the apartment is privileged by the view to the ocean, very easy to walk or car, although you could hear the loud sound of vehicle traffic, it was mixed with the waves of the sea, we feel very comfortable, it is very safe, the location is perfect, very close to the sea (4 minutes walking) and a little away from the hustle and bustle of the town, the apartment is well equipped with the necessary utensils to pass it without need although a screen to see good movies would be great to relax after of pleasant days of sun and sea, the internet was very efficient We loved the place surrounded Green fresh, iguanas climbing the trees, on the balcony we had the visit of a Pixote (coati) we heard howler monkeys that greeted in the morning and in the afternoon . Martin was always aware of us ready to help if necessary, but everything was perfect, To travelers who want to visit Sámara We recommend this accommodation is ideal discreet safe and quiet.

  • Prime location! We rented a car and had access to 4 beautiful local beaches within 15-20 minute drives from the house! Waking up in the morning with a view of the ocean was super relaxing! Favorite part of my stay was eating breakfast on the patio while watching iguanas play. I’ll be back for sure!

  • Five minute walk to the beach makes this a perfect place. You can see and hear the waves from this spot! Expect to hear howler monkeys and a variety of bird songs in the mornings. You get lots of privacy in this apartment!

  • We had a fantastic time here! The view of the ocean from the balcony was beautiful and you can watch the sunset right from there. You can also hear the ocean at night and in January there was a nice breeze for a comfortable sleep. There are howler monkeys (this is the rain forest after all) which can be noisy at night and if you haven't heard howler monkeys before, you might get a bit of a scare the first time! It was very private and we felt very safe in the apartment. It was about a 10 minute walk to town which we had no problem with at all. We had a little bit of a tricky time with the toilet at first but Agustin had it fixed IMMEDIATELY. Overall, we were very happy with the accommodations and would highly recommend. Was so sad to leave.

  • Very nice place, clean and cozy. With Alejandro I had good communication before arriving at the lodge and when we arrived, Yessica attended us very well, she is helpful and attentive. Super recommended.

  • Just a very short drive to a great beach. We drove in order to carry the beach chairs, umbrella and beach blanket they loaned us to use. The pool near our apartment door was refreshing. This is a great family place.

  • If you want a quiet, clean and welcoming place with excellent service close to the beach, you will love this space. We stayed in the studio which was perfect for a couple days. Maria and Jessica, a mother and daughter team who look after the place, are so very welcoming and kind. They gave us chairs and towels for the beach which was very much appreciated. The room wasn’t huge but we weren’t there much so totally met our needs. It was clean and comfortable and the little kitchenette has everything we needed to cook our meals. The beds were very comfortable. The beach was about a 10-15 minute walk away which was perfect. There is a small store a short walk away if you want to get supplies to make your own food or snacks and the soda next door was very reasonably priced and the portions were generous without being overly loaded. Highly recommend this location

  • We are a family of four with a 7 and 9 year old, and we spent 8 nights with another family and their two children in the two upper apartments above the pool. This place was the highlight of our trip. Alejandro responded to check in directions immediately and Jessica was there to great us and hook us up with boogie boards and beach chairs and even goggles for the kids for the pool. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms were great, nice and clean and we felt very safe in Puerto Carillo. Cars can be parked within the gates. The kids lived between the pool and the soda which was right next door. The soda staff was so great with our kids, we ended up eating there for breakfasts and dinners as it was so affordable and delicious (cheaper and better than restaurants in Samara). The beach at Carillo was the safest in terms of wave conditions that we found in Costa Rica and it was really not busy at all, gorgeous too. Also a great jump off place to great beaches to the south. We'd highly recommend this place! Would love to come back!

  • This is a wonderful place to stay. It is so peaceful, especially in the mornings! We felt very welcomed and they did a wonderful job of providing things that made our beach-time more enjoyable (like chairs, cooler, and blankets)!

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Cette maison, (200 m d’altitude) , récemment conçue, est un havre de paix pour profiter pleinement de la nature et de ses animaux sauvages. Vous aurez la chance d'observer des oiseaux, de voir et de vous réveiller aux cris des singes hurleurs , parfois même des coatis osent montrer le bout de leur nez.... Située à 1,3 km de la plage et à 5 minutes de Samara centre, un véhicule est néanmoins nécessaire. Le calme et la quiétude seront donc au programme de votre séjour.
    La terrasse en teck, vue jungle, est entièrement sécurisée par une barrière de protection.
    tranquille, paisible,calme.
  • Absolutely recommend a stay at Barbie's Et Forest's place. The home is as beautiful as shown on the pictures and you will find all you need for a relaxing stay. The deck is a wonderful touch and we spent a lot of time just lingering there. Samara and the beaches are nearby. There is plenty to explore. On top of all, Barbie is a great host who really cares about you having a good time.

    Alyke2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot in Samara. We will be back. Barbie was awesome.

    Shawn2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Barbie wt Forest's home is in a great, quiet location, surrounded by beauty and nature. The location is perfect for exploring the Samara and surrounding area.

  • If you're looking for a new, stylish, and comfortable home which also happens to be nestled into the forest canopy on your next vacation, then look no further. This ranks up there with one of the best places I've stayed while traveling. The sleek architecture, attention to details and stylish interior design would be enough to earn a perfect score. But then add to it a super friendly host and family, who have embraced the Costa Rican way, with some friendly pets as well, who helped us with local tips, really put this place above and beyond. We were also lucky enough to have two family's of monkeys sleep in the trees outside the balcony one night. Was truly an amazing experience! (Monkeys seem to travel a lot, so there's no guarantee they'll be there, we were 1 out of 2 for nights). The balcony is directly in line with the tree canopy on the hillside, which made for perfect & easy wildlife photography.

  • A view of the beautiful jungle from a large terrace very nice, quiet place, clean, good bedding, the proximity of Samara is great, a place to recommend. Thanks to Barbie for the welcome!

    Sophie2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay in Costa Rica, particularly, thanks to Barbie and Forest amazing house. We’ve loved the big terrace facing the jungle and its wildlife and the beach is 15’ walk ! Barbie and Forest as they like to be called are perfect hosts, very kind and sensitive to the special needs of their guests. Our children enjoyed the visit of “Rillette” the miniature pig mascot of the house. You like nature, peace, and a full equipped house, you’ll love Barbie and Forest’s place! Only one matter: we didn’t stay long enough… holidays are so short. Hope we will visit Costa Rica again.

    Barth2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • My family had a great time at Barbie and Forest. We loved their house: Well designed, well equipped and well located. The view of the jungle is great and very soothing. We also had the chance to see many monkeys, a cohati and especially the visit from time to time of their Vietnamese pig "Rillette", a pig too cute; and their cat "Rouky". What a pleasure to take an outdoor shower and observe nature! The terrace is large and well equipped with essential security barrier and for our children and for the animals. We look forward to coming back. Go there you will not be disappointed.

    Gildas2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Superb house, ideally located 10 minutes from Sámara, big enough for the family of 6 that we are. The hosts Forest and Barbie are attentive to the needs of their tenant. I recommend it without hesitation!
