Places to stay in Golfito
Best Value lodging in the Marina zone, central to everything. No car required to get around. Fantastic bayview porch. A few steps to the marina restauants, bars and moorings. Good choice for transiting to the airport or a bus connection. Popular selection for singles and our "repeat guests" often in for a 3 day visa renewal or sportfishing day..... If you want to be in the waterfront area on a budget, this is a great selection with very little compromise. Compare us to local marina rates.
Room with a View! This small studio-guestroom is located on the hillside above Banana Bay Marina, one block from Golfito's town center. Furnished with a double bed, bathroom and a small snack nook including a coffeemaker, mini-refrigerator, microwave and toaster. Private and secure patio entry overlooking our gardens. Air Conditioned, hot water and Wi-Fi. Great for a single or cozy couple. Hotel-Style attendance and services.
Convenient to several typical restaurants and immediately adjacent to the marinas, the neighborhood is walking distance to everything a visitor needs including groceries and the central areas.
  • A quiet place, with a beautiful view of the sea and the sunsets, near the free tank and in front of the marina. You have to climb steps that if you do not carry a lot of weight they are not a problem and the parking lot is not closed but it is across the street in the marina and can be seen from the balcony. She has what it takes to be comfortable and Katie very friendly

  • Katie’s place was spotless, if you’re planning to stay in Golfito I definitely recommend this place. The view from the balcony is beautiful! Also a big plus that there was AC

  • While small, this place feels anything but cramped or stuffy. We stayed one night to catch the early bus the next morning and felt such a reprieve from the heat of the day! The air conditioning is a godsend, it’s close to shops, food and not far from the marina which takes you to Zamia Wildlife Refuge where we spent our vacation. The space was clean and stylish with the amenities we are used to in the States, without sacrificing the Tico influence. Katie was easy to get in touch with and helped us get in even when she was out of town! 10/10, better than advertised.

  • Great place, great view, nice and comfortable, some good restaurants are near and the place was clean 😊

    François2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Next time I stay in Golfito it will be at one of Katies place. Loved it.

    Mary2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, it was easy to arrive by local bus from Rio Claro / Pan American highway. Just look out for Banana Bay Marina and get off there. 2 bus stops from the dock for the boat to Puerto Jiménez. Local sodas ( cheap local food) and close to Banana Bay marina for more classic food, including breakfasts. Coffee was provided at the apartment,and the tap water is drinkable. Power shower with plenty of hot water. We only stayed one night, passing through. We'd definitely stay again.

    Steph2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place much better than I expected. I’ll be back

    Mary2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location. Very good services and attention. Near everything. If you want to go to the beach I advise you to take a boat and cross to one of the islands in front of it as it is a port area. Very good attention !!!!

    Casual, Rustic, days spent on front balcony in hammock or swimming, see pictures for best description. A picture is worth 100 words.
    furnished cottage/cabin laundry on site Roadside parking Remote Jungle Oceanfront Bay This is not for everyone, Rustic But Ohhh so Beautiful What is Costa Rica anyway? It's all about Animals, Jungle & Ocean. If you want to experience the 'Real Costa Rica', this is your opportunity. First let me tell you what 'is not'; 1. No driveway to the House, It's a walk down through the jungle of 100 meters, heavy jungle. 2. No television 3. Nothing fancy, rustic beauty. 4. Sometimes there could be a water problem, it depends on the waterline. Please check for current condition 5. No A/C What it is; 1. Rustic, unlike anything you've experienced before. 2. It's real jungle, very Natural, bare feet welcome. 3. It's totally private 4. It's about the Jungle, the Monkeys, the Macaws 5. The Bay/Ocean is 7 meters from the front of the House 6. It's One of a Kind 7. It's an experience 8. It's your Vacation 9. It's the Rainforest 10. It's Beautiful 11. It's Incredible 12. It's Peace and Quiet 13. It's available by the day or several days The house is older, wooden, we battle with termites. We mostly have water, if not we have a small holding tank. It's really incredible, the views are unbelievable. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, no close convenient store, so stock up. It's a place you want to hunker down and relax for a few days. It's not for everyone, that's ok, we don't want 'everyone' we are looking for a few persons that understand what this is all about. If you are ready to sit back, swim, (oops an occasional gator) read, relax and absorb what Costa Rica was like 30 years ago, then you'll love it here. If you don't have a car, no problem. There is a local boat-taxi service that crosses the Bay from Golfito for 1000 colones each ($1.75 one way per person) If you have questions pls don't hesitate to write.
    There is one restaurant/bar nearby also on the waterfront, and one more a bit further away, but this is a bit more loud and a few characters best to not mix with.
  • Tranquility, beautiful sea and a super friendly Dave. The best to rest and be in touch with nature.

    Ellen2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful place during our 4 month trip (THE most beautiful place) Clean, quiet, secluded, rustic but cozy, .... What a pleasure to go back and forth to the city by small boat! What a pleasure to spend the evenings in front of this enchanting view of illuminated golfito, which is reflected in the bay right in front of you !!!! What a view!!! What silence !!! Ideal temperature !!! With the visit of dolphins! Families of monkeys !! Birds, pelicans, owls .... This house is just a daydream! Traveling for 4 months and we who travel 4 months a year, this is THE guaranteed favorite! In addition David is super nice and helped us when we arrived with our 6 suitcases, helped us to do our shopping and find us a phone card !! Mega pura vida !!!

    Ludovic2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Little piece of heaven. The house is charming and warm. Dave is a really nice and welcoming host. I would come back anytime.

    Nancy2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The House is Amazing and quiet isolated (junge feeling). The Garden is Huge and the House was good equiped. Definitely worth the money .

    Alvaro2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dave's Wildlife Jungle Lodge is exactly that what you expect to see and have during the stay in Golfito. Please don't be scared like my wife of the lonesomeness. It's not like it sounds, a little village is just around the corner, where you can walk to when its low tide. Otherwise you have to walk a little bit the mountain up through wilderness and then you are in a place called Playa Cacao where it gives two restaurants. The house itself is fantastic, well equipped, perfect located and has a beach direct in front of the house. Perfect to relax and have some days off the trouble within normal live. For a water taxi you can call Orlando which brings you around the area for about 1000 Colones p.P. So try it out, its worth. Chris

    Chris2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Dave's home is a true haven of peace. We immediately felt at ease in this beautiful environment between calm sea and tropical forest. The decoration is charming and the house well equipped and well maintained. Access is preferable by sea (preferably at low tide) but it is also possible by car; in this case, you will have to carry the suitcases on a fairly steep path in the humid forest. Not easy, except for the seasoned globetrotter! The house is a stone's throw from the pretty Cacao beach, accessible either by road on the back or from the sand at low tide. Only one regret, that of not having stayed long enough.

    Francis2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place! Stay there at least 2 nights and you will love it!

    Natanael2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Dave’s spot is very special. The house itself is gorgeous, with ample spots for lounging and watching the tide rise and fall from both downstairs and upstairs’ outdoor areas. The kitchen was a lovely place to cook and has multiple views of each side of the gorgeous garden which we spent most of our time in watching wildlife and sunbathing and even fishing. When you’re done relaxing, there are fantastic jungle hikes to the back of the house and when the tide is low, you can walk on the beach all the way around to a restaurant if you wish. Water taxis to Golfito were definitely highlights and just being out on the water in this area is so beautiful. The house has multiple fans if it gets too hot and we were pleased to see we weren’t getting bit by insects at all. Dave was super gracious and helped us with every question we had about the area. 10/10

  • Very cool place in the middle of the jungle! It does not have WiFi but that adds to the serenity of the place. Cesar was very friendly and communicative. Would definitely stay again!

    Fred2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a peaceful and comfortable place in a stunning location surrounded by nature, you should definitely visit Cesars personal paradise. The house is very nice and clean, kitchen very well equipped with all new utensils, there are fans as well as the airconditioning. The terrace is also very nice and spacious. The property is full of fruits and surrounded by nature and wildlife. There is a beautiful river just a few minutes walk from the house, with clean, crystal clear blue water... all to yourself! Great for swimming, exploring, trekking and im sure you could find a heap of wildlife out there too. You feel like you have this whole Jungle Oasis/Paradise to yourself. Its exactly the sort of place we we were looking for for our Costa Rica trip. The host (Cesar) is very helpful and friendly, he genuinely cares about the guests and their experience. He includes cleaning services too. We have been in Costa Rica for two months doing a lot of air bnb , and this was definitely the best place we stayed at. We were only upset that we didn't find it sooner as it would of been great to stay longer. We will return whenever we come back to Costa Rica... Definitely recommend!!!!

    Golfito, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    This house is truly an oasis to paradise. When you want to drop everything and check out, this is your place! It is literally RIGHT ON THE BEACH, just 50 short meters away. The space is quaintly rustic and has the absolute best breeze on the beach. Sit back and soak in the sounds of the wind and crashing waves while they harmonize with the abundance of wildlife surrounding you. We call our house Casa Temperamento Suave meaning Mellow Mood, which is exactly how you'll feel when you're here.
    The space - *VERY affordable BEACHFRONT* with the most captivating views and incredible ocean breeze!!!!! The perfect place to unwind and forget about it all! Mosquitos are not a problem as the open air house has a screen on each door and window. The most delicious fresh fruits and vegetables are delivered and available for purchase right next to our house at Sol y Mar once a week! There is also a small supermarket that is just about a 5 min. walk south where you can find all essentials. You also have access to a larger supermarket about another mile down the road. There is laundry service at Sol y Mar next door to our house that can be used for a small fee. We will have a private washing machine on our property in the near future.
    We are located on the southern tip of Costa Rica on the Pacific side of the country (very close to Panama). Our house sits on the calmer part of the ocean which is ideal for snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding. For those who desire surf, the best waves are just a 10 minute walk down the beach.
  • Lots of shade on the beach. Great shower! Both porch and balcony facing ocean to spend time on. Fresh fish nearby to buy. A grocery store and fruit and veggie truck so no need to bring food. Quiet beach even on weekends. You have to be up for a long car ride on broken roads. Overall our favorite place to stay on our three week vacation. The house and location were conducive for rest and slowing down. No lock box so must keep house secured when not home. Bring your own if you want stainless steel cookery.

    Poppy2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully rustic! Best breeze and view on the beach. Great communication. Pura vida!

    Haley2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great host. If you are looking for rustic beach side living. This is your place. The beach was basically ours. Beautiful seashells.

    Alicia2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, just in front of the ocean, I got unlimited free coconuts all around, fresh food twice a week, best view and sunset, very helpfull local people, thank you

    Golfito, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    In southern Costa Rica, in the unique Golfo Dulce, on Playa Zancudo, set back 300 ft from the beach and off the main road, a secret garden with a safe, clean, quiet and cozy space to relax. Restaurants, stores and bars as close as 5 minutes walking. Located at one of the best spots on the beach to swim, however if you want to surf then just walk south and the waves keep getting bigger the farther you go. If you are looking to explore, play or simply get away then this is the place to stay!
    The Cabina is on the first floor of our home. Gardens in front and back. Decks all around the house, including tables, hammocks, couches and a large kitchen. If you want to enjoy your time here more we can serve a fresh homemade breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    Quiet and small, a few houses infront of our lot along the road, but next to us are open green areas, also in back. There are two stores on the beach, about 5 and 10 min walks in ether direction, and they have most supplies. If you have special diet or medical needs we suggest you bring it with you.
  • I spent two wonderful nights here and wish I could have stayed longer. Meeting people like Amon-Eros, Nadia, and Nina is what makes traveling so special.

    Leo2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very sweet spot in a great location. The beds were comfy, lots of outdoor space and right across the street from the beach. Nights were quiet as you are set back off the road a bit. Nadia and her family are friendly and sweet. Zancudo is a lovely rustic town for those who want to escape from the tourist vibe. If you like dirt roads, miles of black sand beaches, dogs, chickens and everything within walking distance this is a great spot for you.

  • Excellent place and attention Much nature and on the part of the hostess only good things could say

    Erick2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nadia is a very nice person with interesting stories, also prepares a delicious pizza very happy to have known.

    Erick2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Right across street from beach, minutes walk to grocery and local restaurants. Hot... And bring your insect repellent, those suckers are nasty. Place was great though, we really enjoyed it and the hosts are super nice, friendly, and helpful.

  • We loved staying in Nadia‘s and Amon-Eros‘ place. The surrounding is just beautiful, full of mango trees and coconut palms and there was a sloths family living right in front of the house. A calm, little paradise ! But most of all the family‘s natural and warm way of hosting us made our stay here special. They showed us all the medical and food plants in the garden , invited us to play beach volleyball with them and Nadia offered us delicious home made bread and pizza for a small price. Thank you so much for these amazing days - we felt like home.

    Christina2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay with Amon-Eros, Nadia and cute little Nina (and their two adorable dogs) for a few days. This beautiful family was a pleasure to get to know and the guest are is a lovely main floor private space in a quiet garden sanctuary. The accommodations are clean and well-appointed with a large kitchen area if you prefer to do your own cooking. The garden is peaceful and lovely with hammocks on the walk-out patio to relax in. The beach is a short few minutes walk with a direct path. Both Amon and Nadia have lived in the area for a very long time and are both knowledgeable and readily available for any questions you might have. I enjoyed my conversations with them and Nadia prepared some delicious meals for me (at a very reasonable, inexpensive rate). There is a very positive, calm energy in this home and I felt safe and comfortable as a solo female traveller. Thank you Nadia for all the fun conversations, the zumba classes, and the extra coconut water and thank you Amon for helping me get to Golfito for departure and helping me find the post office to mail my postcards and for all your immense knowledge and details about so many things on the tours you provide! It was a great stay with your family. Pura Vida!

    Looking for a house where you can experience to live in the nature of the Osa Peninsula in a small Costa Rican neighbourhood? Then is this the place for you! The Osa Corcovado jungle house is located in a quiete and save neighbourhood close to the centre of Puerto Jiménez. In the nature around the house you can oftenly find wild animals! My family and I will be your neighbours and we love to help you with everything you need!

    The neigborhood where the house is located is called ''El Bambú''. It's very quiet and save and it's full of nature! Often there are wild animals to find in the garden, like monkeys, Scarlet Macaws and more!
  • Perfect place just outside of puerto Jimenez. We used this as a base point to take trips to Matapalo and that area. Anthony was a kind and easy host. The house is super cute, cools down at night, and it had everything we needed. I used the internet to teach my online classes and it worked great. We will be back!

    Molly2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts are incredibly nice, above the average really. Ask them also to show you the pet crocs who live in the backyard pond... The place is rustic, not posh at all, but it's part of a real costarican adventure in contact with nature. I was perplexed at the beginning, then loved it.

    Emanuele2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house as in the description, just minutes from Puerto Jimenez The family is adorable and attentive Very pleasant stay

    Aurelie2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was very pleasant, even though the host was not there, the family welcomed us and attended excellent. There were problems with the tv cable and they immediately solved the problem. The only drawback is at night there is no privacy as there are no curtains and clearly seen through.

    Ivo2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice time in Anthony’s jungle house. The location is great and we even met a really pretty frog in our house. Would definitely recommend!

    Anita2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely family and little place to stay in Puerto Jimenez. They were always available to answer questions and it was a very quiet and cute place to sleep!

    Hannah2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We use Anthony's place as a base during our stay in Puerto Jiminez. Anthony was the perfect host. He picked us up from the airport and dropped us back. He gave us lots of local info. The guide he suggested for our trip to Corcovado was outstanding. Similarly the guide he suggested for our trip to Matapalo was also very good. Anthony went above and beyond to help us and to make our stay comfortable; although he was super busy, he drove me into town to pick up dinner because it was raining.

    Vishwanathan2019-08-11T00:00:00Z

    Puerto Jiménez, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    Located directly at the beach Playa Platanares, only 6km east of Puerto Jimenez. It is one of the best beaches on the Osa Peninsula, still natural, remote, lonely, with dark sand, palm trees and beach almond trees, which attract a lot of scarlet macaws. Each beach house has an open kitchen, a living area and bathroom on the ground floor, and a bedroom on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the garden. Fresh water is pumped straight from our on site well.
    A prime location only 30 seconds walk from the untouched, pristine beach, as well as being within the Costa Rican jungle, this property is popular with all kinds of wildlife. Regular visitors include howler monkeys, white faced capuchin monkeys, squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, as well as resident crabs, frogs, iguanas, geckos and more! We are also right next to a popular nesting beach for four different types of sea turtles. Although we say no events or parties, we sometimes have bonfires on the beach.
    We are 15 minutes taxi journey away from the local town of Puerto Jimenez, which has everything you need - large supermarket, restaurants, cafes, beach bars, pharmacies and gift shops. In the immediate area, we have two lovely hotels from where you can have a drink, a meal, and use the pool (for a small fee) - though you may prefer to swim in the sea as it is right on your doorstep! There are many things to do around the area, and we are more than happy to help you plan activities to make the most of your stay on the Osa Peninsula. Activities include: kayaking in the mangroves, fishing, surfing, nature hikes into Corcovado National Park, boat tours for whale and dolphin spotting, snorkeling, chocolate tours, canopy tours, crocodile watching, horseback riding and more.
  • If you like nature and the sounds that go with it, you've come to the right place. The accommodations are nestled in a jungle garden. Cicadas, birds, howler monkeys and the sound of the nearby Pacific accompany you through the day and night. The accommodation (we rented a bungalow) was equipped with everything that is needed. Spending your free time is not difficult, the nearby national park offers many opportunities, a canoe trip through the mangrove forests is also an experience or simply enjoying the Pacific Ocean and the deserted beach. Arriving by car is definitely recommended and before driving on from Puerto Jiménez (20 minutes) shopping in the supermarket would be a good thing, so you can enjoy your accommodation from the first minute on arrival. Waleska also offers dinner / breakfast on request. We enjoyed every day despite the uncertain location (convid 19) !! We traveled from the Caribbean coast via Cartago (one night is enough), the drive through the mountains was very nice.

    Heike2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place has a little rustic charm and you really feel more like a native than a tourist. We wanted to have some time outside of the main tourist areas, and Waleska’s place was really cool and fit the bill!

    Carrie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Waleska's place was truly perfect! We stayed in one of the circular cabinas, an awesome design and perfect to be self sufficient. The location is great - close enough to town to easily get supplies, but located on a pristine stretch of beach that offered opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, photography, exploration, and prIvate relaxation. It is also a perfect jump off point to explore the Osa Peninsula, with points south and north easily accessed. We'll be back for sure!

    Rick2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute dream in such a beautiful place. We really enjoyed it and will definitely come back again.

    Lisa2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at both a tent and a bungalow on our stay here in the beautiful town of Puerto Jimenez. What you see on the Airbnb site pales in comparison to how you will feel when you arrive. First of all, as soon as you get out of your vehicle the smells in her amazing garden will invigorate you. We walked down a beautiful path to be greeted by Luna the dog, then our host, Waleska who was very nice and friendly. ( They both were) She showed us to our tent which was very charming, perfectky clean, had a sweet little deck and cutely folded guest towels. There are power outlets by each side of the bed and a light. The deck also had lighting and a table with 2 chairs. . The tent is across a small sandy quiet rd to a beach... a beach that you will basically have to yourself. When we went to bed on the comfortable mattress we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the crashing waves. In the morning a delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs,beans/rice and coffee was served at her place. Unfortunately we only got one night in the tent as it was booked the following day. ......however then we got to stay at a bungalow..... My boyfriend and I are at opposite ends as to which was our favourite place. The bungalow has more space, with bathroom inside of it and an outdoor kitchen. Where as the tent had the view of the water and was a titch closer to the beach. You have a private shower and toilet with the tent but it is down the path.....no big deal. It was sooo clean and nice. I prefer the tent he prefers having more amenities...but they are both amazing ! Back to yhe bungalow.... we really liked the outdoor kitchen and shaded eating area, and also the deck off the bedroom upstairs, the fans were a huge bonus. There is no A/C or hot water. You dont need hot water...and you get used to the heat when you have no choice. The wifi was only available near Waleskas place which is good as you tend to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you more. I plan on rebooking for years to come. I love the cleanliness, the gardens, the rusticness, and the almost private beach being so close. Also the host...she was lovely,personable, honest and kind.

    Lori2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Waleska's place is a fabulous spot to stay. The cabin is cute, spacious, clean, and has everything one needs. Waleska is a great host and had recommendations for us for activities. Her beautiful garden is filled with birds and an amazing beach is right across the street.

    Anita2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Waleska was above our expectations: 10 unique days in a deserted place where the garden has nothing to envy to the fauna of the Corcovado Park. Waking up to the sound of monkeys, magical sunrise alone on a 7 km long beach, a very good breakfast when you order it the day before from Waleska. the bungalow has a kitchen, plan your shopping at puerto Jimenez supermarket to cook on the spot and you will be the kings of the world! (15 minutes of track from the city center, where 7000 to 8000 colones of taxi to come from the center). Wonderful!

    Rodolphe2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Waleska's accommodation for a few days. It was so incredibly nice that we even extended it twice by one day each and rescheduled our remaining vacation because we liked it so much. Originally we were only looking for accommodation to take a booked trip (Ficus-Tours - Puerto Jimenez, two-day jungle hike. Incidentally, it is also highly recommended). Accommodation: The property consists of four or five bungalows and is located directly on a huge, long sandy beach near the nature reserve Corcovado. The beach is not very busy, sometimes you are all alone. In the hotel next door (only 5 minutes from Waleska) there is a good restaurant with Italian food. We ate pizza there twice. Puerto Jimenez is about 15 to 20 minutes away by car.

  • Tom and Hollie were all round amazing hosts. The house is so beautiful inside and out- surrounded by wildlife and captivating views. If you are looking to immerse yourself in a serene beautiful nature this is the place. Hollie and Tom was so kind to cook for us during our stay and offer tips for an adventurous trip. Everything about this place is amazing !!

  • We will remember forever the beautiful place where we stayed and the hospitality received

    Juan Gerardo2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We were at Hollie and Tom's place during the start of the wet season. Great thunder and lighting. Animals galore (monkeys, toucans, sloths, parrots, turkey vultures and other birds). Hollie and Tom's place requires an SUV/Jeep or Tom can pick you up in his pickup which is what we did from the bus we caught in San Jose to Golfito (we got off a bit early to meet Tom). The roads turn rough as you get closer to Casa Zenn (their place). The room we had was a good size and a comfortable king bed with private bath. Shared living space and great covered veranda in the back for viewing wildlife. Their two cats were very friendly and also provided some entertainment. We got some breaks in the weather in our 4 night stay and went to near by Golfito by boat/ferry and returned via a mangrove canal only passable at high tide. We enjoyed a dip in their pool which was refreshing after the jungle walk on their property. We didn't take advantage of the yoga area under the palapa (we probably should have). Tom also arranged a kayaking tour up a near by river of mangroves (saw two crocks). Tom is a great cook, so we opted for eating in most of the time at a very reasonable cost. Tom also provided transportation on request at reasonable costs as well. We went to a local restaurant nearby one night. We did fine without a vehicle. We'll be back!!

  • Lovely spot in the country! Wonderful hosts! Amazing views!

    Sam2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical place! My wife and I decided to spend the night somewhere a little different than usual, and we came to an amazing house. Holly welcomed us with open arms, and made us feel at home. The scenery was magical, the house was clean, the meals Holly and Tom served us were at the levels of 5 star restaurants. Tom and Holly were charming, sharing their journey to Costa Rica and giving us time. The trip to the beaches is very short between 10-20 minutes. I must mention that I awoke in the morning to the concert. The sounds from the jungle surrounding Tom and Holly's house were amazing. Enjoy every minute, I recommend to anyone who passes through the area to stop for at least one night. Thank you very much was awesome!

    Itay2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • You have to go, the place is awesome, it's worth the trip. Hollie and Thomas are the best hosts one can find. Casa Zenn is simply a paradise !!!

    Carlos2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Zenn was a perfect experience. We stopped here towards the end of our 2 week trip to Costa Rica . It was everything we wanted and more. Our hosts were super sweet and Hollie is an amazing chef. She made our meals every night and they were delicious (different types of cuisines and ingredients made with love). The outdoor space was beautiful. There were hammocks and a pool as well we had our own private area of the patio where we could watch the sun set and the monkeys play. It was the exact experience we were hoping for. We also kayaked which Hollie and Thomas set up for us. They made staying here very easy and comfortable. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We will always remember our relaxing time at Casa Zenn.

    Gabriel2019-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a glorious 24 hours at Casa Zenn. How we wished we’d stayed longer…. A pure slice of tropical paradise and only just off the beaten track. A warm welcome from Tom and Hollie (and their 2 delightful cats) our well travelled hosts, with a refreshing home made lime juice, followed by a dip in the pool. Drinks on the veranda with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, jungle and sea. Dinner was a delicious plantain lasagne – an absolute must. And this was only one of the many tempting dishes available on the menu. Our en-suite bedroom was spacious, cool and comfortable with our own sitting area. Birds, butterflies and wildlife abound and it is worth getting up early and watching birds and monkeys from the veranda. After a great value hearty breakfast, we borrowed the boogie boards and drove 15 minutes to palm fringed Zancudo beach which was almost empty. A cold drink at Sol y Mar, and then sadly we had to collect our bags and say goodbye to Casa Zenn…

  • We liked our stay at with Yendry. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Great bathroom. There's a nice kitchenette on the porch. We sat out on the porch with a view of the gulf across the street - and there is also a good restaurant across the street. Close to downtown Golfito, but out of town on the way into town. Yendy was very friendly and gave us good advice about the duty free zone. Recommend.

  • Frank’s place is a short walk away from the beach in a safe neighborhood with kind neighbors. We felt at home and totally safe. The house itself is comfortable and clean with good wifi, A/C, big and comfortable beds, washer, dryer, fully equipped kitchen with big sized fridge, gated place for the car. We loved the huge balconies and the rocking chairs. There is a grocery store 5 minutes drive away. During our stay the beach was officially closed but since it’s a hidden gem we still could enjoy it.

  • Great stay !

    F.2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This house is so beautiful! The decks have heavy wooden rocking chairs and you can choose the front deck or the back... The wifi is faster than ours at home, and the a/c is crazy-powerful. You can’t believe the beach- right down the steet- miles and miles of private waves and sand. We loved it!

    Julie2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very good place to stay, comfortable for a family of four or a group of four. The hospitality of Carolina was fantastic!

    Cristiano2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful, balconies to chill while watching hummingbirds coming around, walking distance to the beach, and perfectly located for short drives to food, supermarkets, and the best surf spots!

    Alberto2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent stay in this house. It was sparkling clean and equipped with everything you need. I was there with my 2 young children and my wife. It was great for the little ones because there is plenty of space, it is air-conditioned and has a large garden. You don't walk 5 minutes to the sea. It is close enough that you can hear the noise in the evening. The house has a beautiful terrace and 2 more beautiful balconies. The bedroom is huge. The beds comfortable and big. You can go shopping in Pavones or Puerto Pilon. Both can be reached quickly by car. The check in went smoothly. We were given tips for trips or where to buy fresh fish from the local fishermen. Someone was always available for questions. I would come back here anytime.

    Simon2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, accommodation and communication. Would recommend this to all.

    Karrie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great and big house very close to Pavones. It was very clean and well equipped. Fun fact: it’s the first house we stayed in Costa rica having enough hangers and handles. Communication was very easy and Ramon was waiting for us with the keys when we got there. Highly recommended!

    Golfito, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    Welcome to Frith Estate where your hosts Sandra and Sonny have brought Bermuda hospitality to the middle of the Costa Rican jungle in Playa Zancudo! Enjoy the slow pace of life in secluded Playa Zancudo in Costa Rica's much less travelled Southern Pacific Zone. Enjoy excellent surf every morning, just steps away from the front door of your beachfront cabin and after a day of exploring or relaxing, watch the sun set over Osa Peninsula.
    Our small beachfront cabin in Playa Zancudo is the perfect choice for couples or partners to unwind. The cabin is furnished with at least the following- queen size bed, four burner gas stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, fridge/freezer, TV with HDMI cable (bring your gbox!) and WIFI table and chairs inside and outside. For rent we have 2 surf boards, 2 bicycles and two ATVs. Partial handicap access bathroom.
    a short walk to Robbie's restaurant, Ellie's pizzaria and Coloso Del Mar restaurant.
  • We just had the most amazing time at the frith estate in playa zancudo! You cannot beat the amazing ocean breeze that flows right through the cabina! No ac needed whatsoever! We caught local tuna with a zancudo native and were able to feed ourselves plus a few others the entire time! Being able to cook and have full kitchen was so perfect, cooking and eating to the roar of the ocean, you just simply cannot beat it. Amazing tour into the mountains by horseback, so incredibly special!! Zancudo has tons to offer and Sonny and Sandra will go out of there way to help and show you along! Picked up up from gulfito and dropped us off to our next destination without hesitation. Amazing hosts! Perfect place to get out of the hustle and bustle and relax. Great food around and an amazing baking from Ellie, you just can't beat this local experience we had. Absolutely perfect and we couldn't be more happy and thankful for such a beautiful wonderful experience!

    Elecia2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Well let’s just say this place is a real gem! Just about 160 feet to the beach, where the water is very nice and decent for swimming at low tide. A bit challenging at high tide. The unit was sparkling clean nicely decorated and just large enough for a couple to cook, bathe, and sleep! Make sure to inquire about all the rentals Sonny offers, and make sure to get his wife to list the different tours she offers! We will be back!

    Reid2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Right on a black sand empty beach. Sonny was a great host. He picked us up when we got into town and also gave us a ride to our next destination for a reasonable price.

    Paul2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place. It was exactly as advertised, immaculately clean and well equipped. We’ve been to Zancudo a few times and there are always pros and cons to different ends of the beach. We loved being so close to Coloso del Mar and Ellie’s bakery and didn’t mind the longer walk to the stores although some might. If so Sonny has bikes and ATVs for rent The waves are bigger at this end of the beach also. The hosts were friendly and informative and we loved the company of their dogs Betty and Henry. If you’re not a dog lover though they were very well behaved and would never be a nuisance. We would definitely return here if in the area again!

    Jane2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a laid back quiet place with attentive hosts , this the place for you. Sonny can fix you up with a tour, transportation or anything else you might need. The fruit and veggie truck does its rounds Wed and Sat, and you can order baking delivered to your door from Ellie. There are two grocery stores in town and Sonny can put you on to the best restaurant . The cabina has a well equiped kitchen and the wifi is excellent. We will return.

    William2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Cabina was very clean and comfortable. A beautiful ocean breeze all day and the sound of the ocean. Lots of local wildlife in the area with a sloth living in a tree on the front lawn. Great walks along the ocean. Hosts were easily available and full of information of the area. A little more isolated than my partner and I would normally go to but with our own transportation was not an issue.

    Dave2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in Zancudo! We rented bikes and an ATV from Sonny and drove up and down the amazing coastline. You wake up in the morning to parrots squaking and the sound of waves crashing against the sandy beach. I highly recommend this place if you are anywhere in the southern zone of Costa Rica! We had a fire on the beach several nights in a row under the moonlight. The sunsets and the stars at night are overwhelmingly beautiful! Sonny and Sandra are wonderful, friendly people with local knowledge. Sonny runs a tour business and offers discounts to those who stay in this guesthouse. I cannot recommend this place enough :)

    Nicholas2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you just want to switch off and relax, this is the place for you. The beach is only a few meters away and the water is pleasantly warm. The house has everything you need and is ideal for two. We especially enjoyed sitting on the terrace and enjoying the great view. The nearest supermarket is 2 km away and easy to reach on foot. However, you should bring enough money with you as there is no ATM here. However, credit cards are also accepted. And our hosts Sonny and Sandra were very nice, helpful, sometimes brought us something to eat and organized a horse ride for us.

    Playa Zancudo, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    Enjoy beachfront accommodation AFFORDABLY. This clean, private room sits on the side of a beach-front home in remote, beautiful Zancudo. There is a full bathroom that is SHARED with another small room. Wifi in the room. LOCATION is everything: we are centrally-located, so you can walk to stores (10 minutes), restaurant/bar (100 m/yards away). Your room is just steps from the safe, swimmable and fishable waters of the Golfo Dulce. Here the beach is flat, and 6 miles long: perfect for beach walks.
    Your room is one of 3 spaces that I offer guests. Two rooms share an external bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. The other is an apartment with kitchen and private bath. The owners have their residence upstairs, but we run the restaurant next door for part of the year, so we are only upstairs to sleep and shower (and only from October through February). The room is fully screened, with overhead fan and small desk and stools for work-space. Feel free to use the breezy restaurant/bar nearby, if you want a workspace with a view. When selecting accommodation, realize that location affects many things: too far north, there are no waves, and much less breeze (making it hotter) - we have daily breezes, so A/C not required; too far south, and the waves are so strong that you cannot swim, unless you are an expert surfer. We have medium-sized waves out front, where you can enjoy wave-playing without rip-tides or crashing surf. You can swim for exercise just past the breakers - especially good in the morning. We are central: other locations are so remote that it's 30+ minutes walk to the nearest store or restaurant/bar. Here, you can choose to be social or not..
    The popular Restaurant/Bar/Cabinas Sol y Mar is next-door to serve our famously delicious food and/or ice-cold drinks. Sports on TV can be shown if available. Your room is private, but conveniently located if you wish to socialize. There is a small troupe of howler monkeys right across the road, and we are occasionally visited by white-faced and squirrel monkeys, sloths, anteaters, various bird species.

  • Katie’s studio was perfect for my husband and I. Beautiful sunrise outside the front door was a special treat!

    Ashley2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view. You'll definitely want to spend some time hanging around the space. Small place with beautiful Costa Rican decoratives. There is a bit of noise coming from passing cars, since the studio is right on the street. There's no AC and so it can get quite warm, however there are too large fans to keep cool. Katie was kind and provides a local guide to getting around Golfito. I would absolutely come back.

    Shannon2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The highlight of the place is the view you have (you cant see it from inside) , the garden is adorable, there was any stove to cook, near of everything, very satisfied!

    Tatiana2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated small guest suite with amazing view from the patio. We called to get directions when we got to Golfito and were immediately met at the Banana Bay Restaurant parking. The communication is great and the towels are so soft!

    Newly built ocean front house available for monthly rental May - October This is the perfect place for a writer or an online worker. You will go to sleep with the sound of the waves and will wake up with the sounds of the birds. There is an air conditioned office to do your writing and working.
    This home is all new - we did a huge renovation this year and completely changed the top floor. Playa Zancudo offers yoga Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a small donation. We have a surf board and two boogie boards you can use while you are here. You can walk out the front door and go surfing.
    We are across the street from Bar Tranquilo. They serve pizza too!! There is an excellent restaurant four doors down. Call ahead to make sure it is open. The cool thing about living here is that the vegetable truck comes twice a week at least, sometimes more often. You can buy organic eggs from the neighbour across the street. We can also hook you up with chicken delivered fresh from the farm.

  • Apartment is big and all is in good condition. Kitchen is very well equipped. There is a lot of options for sleeping with three bedrooms having total of five single beds and two double beds. Garden area is big with different plants which are being visited daily by many kinds of birds, butterflies and for example iguanas. We had pleasure of observing many Scarlet macaws very close every day. Car is parked inside the locked fence. Swimming pool is great and our kids spent A LOT of time there. Meidys was excellent host and always had time to help or just chat. In addition to excellent hospitality at the property she and her daughter even guided us to amazing places around the Puerto Jiménez! This help was our only way to find places during our stay because covid-19 was hitting hard and all national parks, beaches etc. were closed! Thank you both so much!!!

    Jukka2020-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Meidys is lovely, her place outstanding compared to other apartments in the country with a loving touch. Even coffee, sugar, oil provided. We LOVED the little pool! Unfortunately the TV from neighbours with adjacent wall on same property was loud, but when we knocked and informed them, they immediately turned the noise down. We were very happy, just sad we had only booked one night there, will definitely come back.

    Brenda2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • The price, location, and property are super good. Their hospitality is also something that we really liked. Something important is that the house does not have air conditioning, we were not bothered by that detail because we are in hot weather, but for other people who suffer from heat it may perhaps bother them. Similarly, there is a large number of fans. The amenities are such as how they come in The listing so I recommend this place to visit Puerto Jiménez.

    Paul2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed several nights at Meidys well equipped and cosy apartment and especially liked the tropical garden with all the fruits and animals. The place is also very joyful for kids. And Meidys really made us feel at home. Thank you Meidys!

    Lukas2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • Just what we needed! Clean place with plenty of fans. Kitchen space. Nice pool to cool off. Just a short walk to the local grocery store. Easy to explore the town. Meidys was welcoming and helpful, even offering a baby gate for our little one. Great price. Would definitely stay again!

    Aaron2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly welcome from Meidis. Well equipped house with a small swimming pool to cool off in the evening. Ideally placed to discover the Corcovado and the beaches of the region. We really enjoyed our stay at Meydis who was always available to give us information. An address to remember if we return to Costa Rica.
