Overview
A third house available in association with the Amaya Family Cabins on Playa Rincon. We are halfway between Drake Bay and Corcovado National Park. There are four houses available for rent on this isolated beach all of which are associated with the Amaya Family who were the original pioneers in this part of Costa Rica(excluding the pre-columbian Indian tribes who had their burial grounds on Cano Island, which is out front of the beach. You are not going to get anything like this in Drake Bay. It is like having your own semi private island without being on an island. You are as close to Corcovado National park as you can get!

Carlos house has limited availability due to Carlos Susana and Brenda living there, and they reserve the right to refuse rentals. Brenda's room is not ordinarily available so listed as 2 bedrooms, but with her r...

Carlos' house is a charming and lovely place to spend a week or two. The view of the ocean is stunning, the breeze up atop the hill is refreshing, and Carlos and his family go out of their way to make you feel at home. It is a short walk down the hill to the main cluster of villas and the beach; the walk back up the hill is a bit strenuous, but after breakfast and dinner, the exercise is welcome. This is a special place to which I would happily return year after year.

We absolutely loved our stay at Carlos'. The house was neat, well maintained, and comfortable, but the best part was the breath taking view overlooking the ocean. Remote, surrounded by the jungle, you will see scarlet macaws flying by. Also, Carlos and his wife were adorable hosts. The food served at the family restaurant was delicious, generous, and very tico. All the staff was very helpful with organizing transfers and excursions. Everything was perfect! Thank you :)
Important: It is a 5-10 minutes walk to the ocean, quite steep on the way back, so just make sure you are in physical shape. Also, the grocery store is in Drake Bay, so make sure you have everything you need when you arrive!
