Overview

Cabuya is in the Southern Tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. In case you are not familiar with this area, I have also included some information:

The Southern Nicoya Peninsula is a make-up of some of the most amazing communities in Costa Rica not to mention the world. Unlike other beach communities in Costa Rica, this area is free from over development both commercially and residentially. With its eclectic group of people and cultures it easy to see the rich and famous or celebrity type enjoying the same beaches and dining in the same restaurants as backpackers.

The Southern Nicoya Peninsula is a make-up of Paquera, Tambor, Cobano, Montezuma, Delicias, Cabuya, Mal Pais, Playa Carmen and the Santa Teresa, and the Manzanillo area. Each Southern Nicoya Community has it’s own distinct flavor.

We feel this area is one of the most desirable as well as the best priced. What is there not to love about this charming, laid-back, friendly, international community?

Here is just a glimpse of what this small piece of heaven has to offer:

Some of the Most Ideal Conditions for Deep Sea Fishing on the Pacific Coast

•World Class Surfing as well as the Best Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in Costa Rica.

•Not an industrial area, Free of Pollution including Light Pollution

•Virtually Crime Free, not plagued with the problems experienced in other Costa Rican Beach Communities or the Central Valley

•Beaches to the End of The Earth…… Free of People and Litter

•Numerous Impressive Waterfalls including the World Famous Montezuma Waterfalls

•Numerous National Parks and reserves right at your back door. Costa Rica’s First National Park, Cabo Blanco, Nicolas Wessburg Absolute Reserve, and the Curu Wildlife Reserve just to name a few.

•Costa Rica’s Finest Artists, Dancers and Street Performers

•Abundance of Plants and Wildlife including Howler and White-Faced Monkeys

•International Cuisine Beach side Dining

•Fly from San Jose Directly into Tambor for around $50! The 30-Minute Flight is an Aerial View of the Central Valley, Rain forests, Pacific Ocean and the Islands in the Gulf of Nicoya. Tambor is located 20 Minutes by Car from Montezuma.

We welcome you to come visit our ¨little piece of heaven.¨ We are so sure you will love it, that we would be happy to arrange your travel, accommodations and tour packages free of charge! We are able to offer this service to our clients because of our knowledge of the area and activities as well as the relationships we have established with local tour operators. Here is just an idea of how you can pass your time here; Surfing, Canopy Zip line Tours, ATV Adventures, Day Trips to Tortuga Island, Sea Kayaking, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Waterfalls, Horseback Riding, Boogie Boarding, Camping, Fishing, Hiking in One the Nature Reserves, Swimming, Yoga, Massages, Butterfly Gardens, Bird Watching, Golfing in Tambor, Mountain Biking and so Much More!!! You can see why once people have seen what the Southern Nicoya has to offer, they plant roots and never leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing home that you have here in Cabuya. My husband and I brought our two year old here for her first adventure out of the States. Thank you for creating a space that feels like home. It truly has been our home away from home. Rosa was amazing and so helpful :) .



My husband and I felt like kids again here. We loved hanging out in your pool and relaxing on the porch watching the various birds fly from tree to tree. What a magical place you have here. The only thing that I think could be added to Casa de Lassus are hammocks!



Hasta Luego!

Lovely yard and pool

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the property for 4 nights in Jan 2015. The yard and pool are beautiful. The house was as described. We were disappointed that there was no BBQ as advertised. Air conditioning would be a nice addition as the house is quite warm at night. Jenny at Coyote Café was great, she provided much information about the area, she booked a tour for us and also arranged a taxi. She serves delicious watermelon drinks. We ate there one night and the food was good also.

Owner's Response: We're happy that our guest have favorable experiences at our home, and we appreciate all feedback . Sorry about the BBQ. The house does not have one at this time. They rust out after one season, and become unsafe. The house has a covered lanai surrounding the exterior . An air conditioning system would not work since the house was designed with an open aired theme, with large glass sliding doors that grant immediate access to the pool and lush tropical garden. We have ceiling fans in every room in the house. It does cool down at night

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are N. Americans resident in Costa Rica for more than 30 years and with lots of experience renting vacation houses around the country for stays with our family and friends. We like a homey private and peaceful country atmosphere in a beautiful, interesting place with the conveniences of home. This house, with many beautiful details of wood and tile in its tasteful architecture, is the nicest we have found. The pool is sparkling clean and was perfect for us and our 3 grandchildren ages 7, 9 and 12. The house is well located for exploring the many special areas nearby, with short drives to spectacular uncrowded beaches between Cabuya and Montezuma, the Cabo Blanco nature reserve, and the interesting Cemetery Island near Cabuya. The Cabuya beach itself is about 400m by road from the house. It has solid rock formations that extend far into the water so it is a scenic but not a good swimming beach. There are good restaurants very nearby where you can get gourmet-quality pizza and delicious fresh tropical fruit smoothies, which seem to be a specialty of this part of Costa Rica. In Montezuma there are a number of very good restaurants as well. But you can easily get supplies at local supermarkets and cook in the well-equipped kitchen of this house (which even has well sharpened cooking knives!) if you prefer to just relax “at home.” The spacious porch with comfortable chairs and hammocks joins the house to the garden area which is small but very lush and private, where we saw a surprising number of spectacular birds, including four species of parrots, chachalacas, a heron, toucanets, a rail, hummingbirds, brown jays and others either in the garden or flying overhead. We had absolutely no problem with mosquitoes during our 4-day stay. Beds are comfortable, and the caretaker family is very efficient and helpful. The owner is prompt in answering emails and makes you feel very welcome as guests in this house.

Total tranqulity

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from staying at the Cabuya Dream House for 5 weeks. The house was simply divine...totally open and comfortable. The housekeeper came for 4 days a week and maintained the house immaculately. The owner is very good to work with and cares about the house and its visitors. It is also good to know that we felt very safe at the house. Being able to sleep with the windows open was a treat and very comfortable. We woke early every morning to the sounds of birds and howler monkeys set amidst a beautiful flowering tropical garden. We were able to do many adventures in the area: snorkeling, surfing,kayaking, ATVs and ziplininng The house was great, the food was great, the water is good...what'ss not to love. We would definitely return as our 5 weeks was blissful.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The house became our home for our family vacation. Relaxing into the pace of life Costa Rica offers was perfect and exactly what we needed. As our family which includes adult children has dispersed far and wide, we appreciated making our home in Cabuya to enjoy the beauty and adventure. The house itself was beyond our expectations as photos cannot do justice to reality. Rosa the housekeeper is a gem and even though we had a language barrier we were fully prepared for the scritching of the house lizard in the morning hours as Rosa had described it to us. The early morning howler monkeys bring up the sun and we found this time of day to be ideal for bird watching and photography. Cooking and eating together, the local shops and markets which had everything we needed, ordering fruit from the delivery truck with the help of Jenny the Coyote Cafe owner next door, the amazing beach, interesting and new plants and animals, hiking to the Cabo Blanco beach, and the local eateries and panaderia were all fantastic. All of this was within walking distance.

We appreciated our 4-wheel vehicle! It carried us to surfing, snorkeling, SCUBA, thrilling falls to jump, and many beach locations. "Dry season only roads" are exciting!!! And we enjoyed many delicious meals in Montezuma.

Best of all though were the people. They were warm and welcoming. This was our first trip, and we hope to repeat it. Debra and Jim's responses to our questions prepared us perfectly. We will be back. Pura Vida!

Escape from -30 C

  • 5 of 5

Our second vacation to Costa Rica (to experience a different area) . Loved the house and a chance to have a relaxing week living in a quiet village before a second week of exploring the peninsula and Monteverde.

We were concerned the climate might be too hot for us, but the house was very comfortable with fans, breezes, shade of jungle, and great pool.

The beach is rocky in Cabuya, but it is fun to walk out and snorkel at Isla Cabuya at low tide.

We rented a 4x4 from San Jose and took little trips to Montezuma (hike to waterfall), Mal Pais and Santa Terese (beautiful beach).

We did the arduous 4 hour jungle trek to lovely secluded beach and back in Cabo Blanco reserve and saw monkies and other wildlife, including a mass of gorgeous blue butterflies.

It was always a treat to return for a swim in the pool and relaxing in the beautiful yard and gardens, listening to the sweet songs of birds and the occassional howler monkey roar.

We had some great meals at El Coyote 2 doors down, the Bakery, and El Castanho.

The house is as described and Rosa is a wonderful hardworking employee. She didnt speak any English but we had fun conversing with her in our limited Spanish and with translation apps on wifi.

Nice to get to know the locals.

This was a wonderful week of relaxing, exploring, and experiencing another unique locale of Costa Rica. I would recommend this property for those who do not want the typical touristy destination.

Note: Travelling further into peninsula (we went on to Playa Carillo) on crazy roads in rented vehicle is only for the adventurous.

tranquility and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Overall this house is VERY nice. Pictures don't lie, everything we expected. From the beautiful flowers in the yard, pool, Rosa (housekeeper), wildlife (lots of birds from 4-6pm nightly) and location it was all we would have wanted. The pool was loved by the kids and the house overall was clean, airy and lovely. Lizards and birds everywhere was fun for everyone! Far enough away from the main road so that the dust and vehicle noise were unnoticeable. It can get dusty on the roads in the area in late dry season so those were really nice bonuses. Overall I would not hesitate renting this house again. Nice to have a rental car and you can contact Jenny at Cafe Coyote to arrange that in advance she's a Budget Car rep. plus she does all kinds of other things as well from tours to transportation and the cafe!
