Cute rustic cabin on the beach with a great host. Sonny provided everything we needed. Dogs, cats and roosters kept us company.

“A beachside paradise with everything you need nearby”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This beachfront cabin is ideal located in a private glade right by a beautiful stretch of beach. It provided us with a perfect secluded getaway - but with wifi, running water, shops and bars and restaurants nearby (just a beach walk or quick cycle away).

Sonny and Rita couldn't have done more to help us enjoy our stay with recommendations and advice.

An excellent beachside retreat with full modern amenities!

“LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This cabin is directly on the beach and has all the basics one would need when passing the time in Costa Rica. We had a slight issue locating it in the dark but that was "user error" not Sonny. The beach is beautiful and one can walk for a great distance either way especially at lower tides. I would recommend water shows as it is a bit rocky but if you're tough it's tolerable. A grocery store, bars and restaurants are not far from the cabin either. Sonny and his wife were both very friendly and accommodating.

We had a wonderful time staying in Sonny and Rita's cabin. the sunset views over the ocean were amazing. You really are right on the beach with palm trees and hammocks, hermit crabs and birds. it was a fantastic and relaxing experience. We will recommend this place to all our friends and come back next time we're in Costa Rica for sure.

“Rustic little piece of Heaven!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

This little cabin is a perfect little vacation. If you are okay with camping, but would like the security of a place to leave your stuff and you still want to have indoor plumbing, then this is your place. Staying here was like visiting old friends - Sonny and Rita welcomed us with open arms and provided the necessities we would need for a short stay and made us feel very welcome. For the price, this is the best little beachside property one can find. The cabin had a comfortable bed, sheets & towels provided, a flushing toilet, a shower, and a small refrigerator. What more do you need on a beach vacation? That said, it should be noted that this is private property, and there are a few things that cannot be controlled: there are other properties nearby, and the beach is public, so it's not isolated all the time (though the crowds are significantly less than beaches in more populated areas), dogs and chickens roam freely (& sometimes make noise when you are trying to sleep) and during certain seasons the wind can whip up in a frenzy. For these reasons, I would recommend earplugs, because crashing waves do not drown out these other sounds. The beach looks exactly like the images, and the snorkeling is very nice if you go at the right time. The neighbors catch & sell lobster, and the nearby Bar Latinos will provide the best ceviche & margaritas (possibly) in the world!!
