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.

Paradise in Puntarenas!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Oceano and I must say it was the perfect getaway! Backing onto the beach with private access the palm tree covered property is quite stunning and situated in a great location.

Whether you want to spend time at the beach catching the sunrise/sunset (which are next to none) or at the pool, both options are fully at your disposal. They also offer a great outdoor covered area with BBQ, making it a perfect spot to spend time with friends and family.

Owners Rupi and Karin are great people, very accommodating and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The caretakers Ronald and Bernie are super friendly and keep everything in great shape; rooms and property are always clean, with laundry and meal options available at your disposal.

With Puntarenas being a cruise ship destination there are many day trips and overnight adventures that one can choose if they wish; hot springs surrounding the Arenal Volcano and zip lining through the mountains at Miramar just to name a few.

Overall my experience in Costa Rica was next to none, and staying at Oceano was the perfect choice! Thanks to Rupi and Karin for providing the perfect place!

Relaxing ocean front getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is great for a relaxing vacation away from home. The location is good, only 1 1/2 hour drive from San Jose airport, near Puntarenas, and just steps from the beach. The house itself has everything you might want, 8 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, a fully furnished kitchen, a very nice outdoor patio and the pool area is wonderful in the heat of Costa Rica. The true gems of this home are Bernie and Ron. These 2 live in the gate house and are the caretakers of the property. They are truly there for any need you may have. Bernie is a wonderful cook, and will make anything you ask her to. They are always there, but are never in the way, and they are very respectful of your space. The house dog Macha is a treat as well! I highly recommend this home for a vacation with a large group of family or friends.

Most relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. Very relaxing.

The accommodations were great. It felt like home away from home; only better.

A beautiful and inviting swimming pool. The beach in your own backyard was amazing. It was nearly private and the sunsets can't be beat.

The on-site staff (Ron and Bernie) were wonderful and very helpful. Karin and Rupi's hospitality was incredible.

The local food & fruit markets and restaurants were outstanding.

The house was well situated allowing many excursions.

The activities and attractions are plentiful and there is something of interest for everyone.

Would highly recommend Oceano for both families and adults groups.

I stayed at Oceano a few years ago with friends and family and loved it. This time I brought my husband and we had an amazing time. The house is as I remembered it but I notice it is freshly painted with different colours and the gardens have grown and the plants have started providing fresh fruit for the guests. The giant passion fruits are yummy! So are the papayas. Macha the property's dog is a delight. She is so gentle and friendly. She came with us to the beach almost every day to watch the sunsets. (Which are stunning). We went on tours such as Arenal volcano, Manual Antonio and the mud baths. That was fun and we got some hilarious photos of ourselves covered in mud. Now my husband sees why I raved about this property and Costa Rica. Berny and Ronaldo are great staff. Nothing was too much for them to help us with: and we needed help cause our spanish is not great. They are very friendly and Berny helps with the breakfast and a few nights we had her cook for us. There is an extra charge for that, but who cares. We were on vacation. We had 3 other couples with us and they all enjoyed the house and the pool.

I loved sleeping in the cabinas because they have king beds with memory foam mattresses and you feel cool due to the breeze and high ceilings. We really didn't need the air conditioner much. My hubby preferred the fan. I loved the sound of the waves as I fell asleep and woke to the sound of birds singing. The house is not luxurious, but it is really spacious and has everything you need.

But the best part is you are staying in a real Costa Rican beach house in a Costa Rican neighbourhood. We met local people. We ate some great local food in little restaurants which they call "sodas". We got an authentic Costa Rican experience. I am not really a resort person; I like to find out what a country and it's people are really like. Ronald and Berny are a wealth of local information. They suggested restaurants, arranged taxis for us and took us to feed wild monkeys. Sooo cute!

If there is anything I would have wanted at the house: it would be an ice maker. They have lots of ice cube trays, but we use lots of ice so we had to buy bags from the store. Overall, excellent value for money. I would recommend to my friends.

Oceano cabina seven

  • 5 of 5

My most remembered experience to Costa Rica has been my stay at Oceano. Falling asleep to the relaxing sound of the ocean. Walking on the beach every morning. Retreating to the palms and waterfall poolside was wonderful. The main hacienda hosted the beautiful wood grains of the region.

The management(Rupi and Karen) recommended a trip to Arenal mountain via a local mountain road known primarily by locals just outstanding views of waterfalls and the vast lake Arenal.

We primarily shopped at the local markets for fresh fish and produce and took full advantage of the kitchen provided. But we did enjoy the La Dolphin restaurant located on the main road to Puntarenas.

I would highly recommend this ocean retreat to anyone interested in visiting Costa Rica.

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.

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.
