Holiday Rental House
Casa Kalana is a unique, quiet, private home nestled in the last section of tropical dry forest just 250 yards to the Pacific Ocean. You can pour yourself a cup of coffee and put your feet in the ocean before it gets cold. We have an abundance of wildlife to observe thanks to our heavily wooded property. We have a fully appointed kitchen, granite counter and bar, dining and living area which opens onto the outdoor terrace, complete with hammocks, where our guests tend to spend the majority of their time. There are two large bedrooms, each with queen sized beds with one shared bathroom. Filled with art and decorated in a indigenous artifacts, the energy is designed to disconnect you from your stressful life, and reconnect you to your 'self' and nature....Casa Kalana is a unique, quiet, private home nestled in the last section of tropical dry forest just 250 yards to the Pacific Ocean.

Interaction with guests
Guests let me know how much interaction they need, but I am not more than 10 minutes away should anything arise. It is the jungle here, and things do happen, mostly nature. We are long time residents here and have enjoyed hosting guests who have left as friends. We work hard to insure your valuable vacation time is stress free and relaxing and we are honored that you would consider Casa Kalana and Playa Negra. If you have any questions, please let me know how to be of service. Mahalo, Frank Kalana

About the neighbourhood
Playa Negra is so much more than just a surfing beach, there are empty roads for an early morning or late evening run or walk. Horses pass here daily for those interested, and the best canopy zip-lines are a 10 minute drive away. We are a quiet, residential community, with restaurants and stores within walking distance, but a rental car greatly expands your options if you are here more than a week. Yoga studios, training programs, fishing, surfing lessons, we can make it happen.
Getting around
A rental car is highly recommended if you are here for more than one week. Bicycle rentals can be organized for exploring the area as well. Bus travel is daily into Santa Cruz, but with a rental car, you can be there and back with your shopping by the time the bus arrives in Santa Cruz, a real time saver when you are on vacation. Most of the area restaurants and stores are within a 10 minute walking distance, but carrying groceries back home can be a bit daunting for the uninitiated. Local taxi service is also available. Let us know about your plans and desires before you arrive so you minimize any downtime.
