A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Ginger Cabins was an experience of a lifetime. The mountain views and rivers that ran through the property provided a tranquil relaxing secluded experience. Quepos was a 15-20 minute drive which was perfect for evenings out and fine dining. Life moves at a slower much needed pace in Costa Rica. Yet had the amenities and excursions very near by for those that are adventurous. 10/10 would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Costa Rica

Three Weeks in the loveliest cabins!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 weeks in the lovely Ginger Cabins. What a perfect antidote to anything that ails you...or doesn't! The cottage was perfect, simply and beautifully appointed. The porch is it's own outdoor living space and my daughter and I lived out there. At this time of year, the rain showers hit many days late afternoon and they were part of the magic of the place. The owners were incredibly kind and helpful and made our stay comfortable and effortless. Don't miss an opportunity to visit this very special property. If you're looking for the beauty of the tropical jungle, close enough to enjoy town while you take in the mountains surrounding Quepos, this is your destination!

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

There could be so much to say about this place. First it's not for everyone, you have to rent a 4X4 which raises the cost of your vacation by a fair margin, it takes a 30-minute drive every time you need to go somewhere (beach, restaurant, market). But if you're willing to accept that, you will have an extraordinary vacation.

Ginger Cabins has 2 cabins and one main house (owner's). We rented the main house for a month. A similar house on the beach, anywhere in Costa Rica, rents between 5 and 10K$ a month! It is located halfway between Parrita and Quepos, but in the back country. The brook that runs next to the main house is beautiful, clearest water, in the shade, ideal to refresh yourself in the middle of the afternoon. I often sat in it to read!

The property is squeaky clean, thanks to Efrain, the caretaker, who is the most wonderful man. He and his wife, Ania, know how to make you feel at home. For the first two weeks, the 4 of us were out and about every day, always wanting to see more beaches and attractions. Then I spent the last two weeks alone. I appreciated the serenity of the surroundings so much that I never went back to a beach.

Don't forget to ask Efrain to call Rafaël. For a minimal fee, he will show you his land further back in the woods with its wonderful water holes and then you can have a delicious tilapia at his restaurant (5 min. away). A must do adventure: a Segway Tour out of the port of Quepos. Get your coffee at Milagro in Quepos or Manuel Antonio, it's the best in Costa Rica!

I highly recommend Ginger Cabins to anyone. PURA VIDA!

Awesome jungle experience!

  • 5 of 5

Four friends wanted to experience Costa Rica! We did the beach, and farmlands near volcano then ended up in the jungle! This beautiful cabin was such a WONDERFUl experience , the pictures do not do justice! Just up the road is a neighbor that has a great kept swimming hole! The driveway is steep and a 4-wheel drive vehichle is a must, unless you like to hike up the drive. The caretaker is on the property if there is any requests, problems, questions. The owners are available (via phone/email) and very helpful as well! Great experience and VERY comfortable! An adventure that is a must to experience! We highly recommend this cabin!

Peaceful, comfortable, quiet rainforest vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was rented for friends for one week while my wife and I rented the main house for four weeks. The location near a river was all that we had hoped for and more. The photos can't do justice to the beauty of all the trees and flowers, and no mention was made of the band of titi monkeys that passed through the property every few days. What a treat! We couldn't have asked for a cleaner place, and the cleaning fee that we paid each week kept it that way - money very well spent. The caretaker was on the property pretty much around the clock and took care of our every need and was willing to do anything that we requested including transporting us up the hill to the beautiful cabin. We did ziplining just a few miles away (Mid-Earth from an office in Quepos) -an unforgettable experience that is highly recommended as is a restaurant near Damas called El Tucan. We would definitely recommend this house to friends who are looking for a quiet stay off the beaten path in a truly pristine setting. Be sure you have a durable car for the drive off the highway.
