Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent staff, perfect rustic beach house with a pool for a large group



We enjoyed our stay at Casa Oceano. Many hours were spent relaxing poolside while the kids enjoyed the pool.



Thank you to Bernie & Ronnie for their hospitality. We had an exceptionally comfortable & memorable stay in El Roble because of them. For 8 days, we woke up to Tica food & fresh local fruits prepared by Bernie. She makes dinner for an additional charge paid to the owner Karin. Bernie is off on Sundays, which did not pose a problem for us. It gave us a chance to sample local restaurants.

Our family had a nice Sunday dinner at Costa Del Sol as per Ronnie's recommendation. Ronnie came with us to town to purchase groceries anytime we needed him too. He also took our group to see the nearby monkeys.



The house comes with the most intelligent guard dog. We miss Macha so much. She instinctively kept our group safe, especially the young ones.

Wonderful house, just as described, 16 of us stayed here and we had a ball. Ronald, Bernie & Macha were wonderful. Macha would escort us to the beach and then head back home. My kids thought it was amazing how Ronald would go fishing without a fishing pole and come back with fish, which he shared with us. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. The only draw back was the WIFI- need to add wifi extender to the two outer cabinas and tv's to the bedrooms like the size in the familyroom and a larger one for the family room. We went . Ziplinen arranged by Estevan a tourism guide recommended by Ronald. There is a restaurant just as you enter the street that the house is located , It's very reasonable and good. There is also a giant supermarket less than 5 minutes away, it's like BJ's or Costco. I am looking forward to going back and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The kids all 9 of them ages 3-15 had a ball, between the beach and the pool they were in heaven.

What an awesome week we had in Costa Rica. We were a group of four families comprised of 8 adults and 8 kids from age 2 to turned 13 while we were there. The house was absolutley perfect for our needs and had everything necessary to make our week a great one. We appreciated the helpfulness of Karen and the ease of booking. Our week was made even better by Bernie and Ronald as we always felt so well looked after. What a treat not having to cook and even having someone to lay out the hammocks for us each day. Any requests were done with a smile and a "mucho gusto"... from grocery shopping to calling cabs and to ensuring that we started and ended the day with a fantastic meal. An added bonus was the wonderful Macha who was always willing to stroll on the beach and to watch over the kids. The property was very well kept and the pool kept the grown ups cool and the kids entertained all day long. We swam in the ocean, walked on the beach and even tried our hand at body surfing. The house was well located for the endless tours and day trips in the area. You really must go feed the monkeys... it was great fun for all. A special "gracias por todo" for Bernie... mi amiga. Miss you lots! :)

We had one of the best trips we have ever had! My mom and dad really liked how Bernie would cook for us. Macha would always come on walks with us on the beach and she really enjoyed it. I loved your pool and all the other special features it had. If I could go back there i definitely would. Bye!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our beach house. It was so much fun to hear how your family enjoyed everything. We hope you can come back and see us some time. Pura Vida from Rupi and Karin and Ronald and Bernie and of course Macha. She felt sad for the whole day after you left. She wouldn't even eat her doggie treats.

Perfect for our large family!

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our large family. We were a group of 14 adults and two children coming in on 4 flights from all over the U.S. Owners were very responsive to our many questions and met us on arrival to give a quick orientation of the property. Rustic but very comfortable, all bedrooms are ensuite although showers have electrically heated units which need to be upgraded. Owner is aware and assures me that they are working on it. Could also use more comfortable seating areas. I understand new lounge chairs are in the works. The pool is clean and has just enough shade and sun for comfort. A short walk under the palm trees on property (if you can pass up the hammocks) brings you to the beach. Warm water, nice walks, just enough wave action for boogie boarding, beautiful sunrises and sunsets make it close to perfect. My guys caught fish the first day there and we cooked them up for dinner that night. We collected driftwood for our beach bonfires at night. It was so relaxing and peaceful. Property caretakers Bernie and Ronald are superstars. They can handle anything and are a wealth of information. For a small charge, Bernie will cook for you and clean up afterwards if you want. It is worth it. They were available to us at any hour of the day or night, always with a smile and a quick step. The 18 month old who was with us was looking for Bernie on his return to TX. Macha the property dog is so well behaved and gentle. She accompanies you to the beach and instinctively knows who is with your group. The children (and adults) just loved her. Excursions are easily arranged and drivers available although we did rent a small car for quick trips to supermarket and to see the monkeys. Puntarenas is a good location to get to activities and excursions. You may not want to leave the property though.

Incredible Beach House! Thank you Rupi and Karin!

  • 5 of 5
My family went to Costa Rica for the first time last month and it was the best vacation ever! Rupi and Karin are amazing owners! They are knowledgeable, accessible and resourceful! Bernie and Ronald, the caretakers/cooks, on site, are fantastic as well. This house is spacious with a beautiful fruit garden out front. There are a number of different varieties of passion fruit growing on the property that Ronald was kind enough to pick for us. Furthermore, the fruit market and fish market in town was fantastic. The weather was perfect! +30 sunny every day! The ocean was warm and clean! Beachfront was natural and easily accessible from the house. Very safe for kids! My boys loved the beach and the pool (as well as the amazing food). Our family fell in love with Macha, the Collie/golden dog, who accompanies us to the beach and back.... she was a great addition to the Costa Rican experience! In addition to the house itself, the proximity to excursions is fantastic: We were able to go zip lining, go hiking and see Volcan Arenal, visit Volcan Poas, Zoo Ave (a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre), and we also took many trips just 10 minutes down the road to feed local white-faced capuchin monkeys. All in all a fantastic trip! Thank you Karin and Rupi for making our experience memorable! We look forward to coming back!

UNREAL VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This place is heaven on earth. We arrived with 2 families a total of 10 people. Rupi and Karin were such amazing hosts helping to settle us in and being so hospitable. Very relaxing hotel especially away from the hustle and bustle of all inclusive hotels. The food is great prepared by Bernie who is an amazing cook. Ronald was always helpful in finding groceries from the fresh local fish market. The accomodations are spacious and no lack of bathrooms. The kids loved the pool along with the warm beach. The property is very safe and secure and so we had no problem letting the kids run around and have their freedom. They especially loved Macha the dog. She would accompany them to the beach always watching over them and being very friendly. She would run with them and jump into the waves being so playful. The beach is endless for long walks and it was nice to have your own private pool. We had a fantastic stay and would love to come back anytime. Highly recommended for everyone!!!

Large beachfront property surrounded by similar large properties. It is situated on the Pacific Coast and is near restaurants and supermarkets as well as the hospital.

It is a quiet location but it is very conveniently located to take advantage of all the nature, activities and adventure that Costa Rica has to offer. You will enjoy the conveniences of the nearby town and there is a tourism center down the street where trips can be booked. We have good surfing, ziplining, sport fishing and many other tourist activities nearby as well.
