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.

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!

Comfortable House

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfortable, spacious and has all the amenities.

The rooms are a bit warm.

The place is very pretty especially Santa Teresa and Manzanillo. The road is a little rough. It was not possible to rent an ATV for excess demand, perhaps because it was Easter.

The best of all are the neighbors, they are all very friendly and pretentious.

Owner's Response: We are happy with the favorable reviews. The house is equipped for comfort and relaxation and maintained daily. Yes it does get a little warm in April (Easter week). However each room has a large ceiling fan overhead and the pool is nearby......regards...Jim & Deb

All the nature you could want

  • 5 of 5

My family and in-laws stayed at the house for a little less than a week. The hose is literally a 5 minute walk to the beach and just off the road. During our stay, we saw all kinds of nature including two kinds of monkeys, a few large iguana's (that both live on the property) and this was just while sitting in the backyard and swimming in the pool. We have two teenage boys that were able to stay in the cabana on the other side of the pool. We walked over to elcoyote cafe a couple of the afternoons and enjoyed their fresh fruit smoothies. You are a short 10 minute drive from town where we were able to go on a few excursions. The best trip that we took was the snorkeling tour out to isla tortuga. We saw a ton of fish (including some small sharks) and saw macaw's and parrots on the beach. Overall it was a great trip and if you are looking to enjoy nature while you are in costa rica, this is the place!

It really is a dream house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I couldn't believe how amazing this place is. Not just the house itself (which is wonderful) but the property as a whole and the surrounding area are wonderful. The house itself is very tranquil and perfect for recharging the batteries, while there is plenty of interesting places to walk to and sodas to eat at. Go check out the cemetery island and you can't go wrong with any of the eating establishments. Rosa was so kind and made one of the most delicious breakfasts we've ever had, she is an angel. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful home for a family or group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this beautiful home in Cabuya, Costa Rica. We stayed for five weeks with a family of six, including four young children. The home is exquisite and well-appointed. We found we had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable and the outdoor space is divine. Some days we just hung around the house, enjoying the pool and the fantastic hammocks. It's true, there is no air conditioning, but we found ourselves accustomed to the heat fairly quickly. The (very clean) pool is fantastic, by the way! The owner and the caretaker, Rosa, are wonderful people. We found them to be helpful and kind every step of the way, including when we needed to leave quickly due to a family emergency. We loved the location of this home. Cabuya is quaint with beautiful shorelines and the people are so friendly. I couldn't recommend the home more!!

In terms of Cabuya, it can be helpful to know a few things. First, a car or ATV is necessary to fully enjoy the area unless you are comfortable walking long distances. There is a public bus, but it is somewhat unreliable. Visit Jenny at the Cafe Coyote is a must. Try the coffee at the Cabuya Bakery and the family-style meals at Delphin De La Luna. We found that we didn't swim at Playa Cabuya, due to the rocks, but there are numerous beautiful beaches very close by. Check out Playa Montezuma, Playa Grande, Mar Azul, Playa Carmen and Playa Hermosa.

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.
