About Ben Geren

My family is from Southern California & spend much of our time vacationing here in Costa Rica.

Always, whether its clients or family whom are visiting, a member of our very friendly staff will be here to let you in & get you all set up. This is usually our groundskeeper, & or one of our maids. They will make sure you have absolutely everything you need here, and always we are just a phone call or email away.

Also we have two very wonderful & loving guard dogs, Elvis & Bessie, our Rottweiler & Rhodesian Ridgeback.

Ben Geren purchased this house in 2006

We picked this location for our Costa Rica residence, because it is absolutely the best part of Costa Rica to be in! The beach is incredible & the surfing absolutely amazing! We are excited to share this place with you!

We had an amazing Christmas vacation here!

  • 5 of 5

The charm house is a small cozy little house just outside of town, down a very bumpy dirt road. It is only 8km but takes about 25 minutes because the road is so rough. Once we got to the house, we felt very safe. The large property is surrounded by cactuses, a big gate and the two wonderful friendly guard dogs. My family never felt unsafe once on our trip.

The house was clean and had all the necessities. There was no living room or dining room so we spent most of our evenings lounging outside in the hammocks and other chairs Ben provided. Ben was great! He was always asking if we needed anything else and lined up taxis for us to go get groceries/beer in town. He also arranged our shuttle to and from the airport for us.

The beach was a 10 minute walk down a beautiful board walk. We spent most of our days at the beach, they were beautiful! The water is full of friendly surfers! You can rent surf boards or boogie boards right at the resort you walk through to get to the beach. They also make delicious fruit smoothies and can set up tours for you there!

We had a fantastic trip and can't wait to go back!

Better every time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my wife and I have come to this property and we have to say that it was even better than the first time. The owner continued to make upgrades to the place to make it even more comfortable. The location is amazing; so close to the beach and close to town. Looking forward to coming back next time I come to Costa Rica!

Best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation started out pretty rough but Benny managed to save our experience and go above and beyond! He was very accommodating. The house was very well maintained and excellent by Costa Rican standards. The surf lessons were unforgettable, thanks!

Anyone looking for a responsible and honest host should choose this vacation home rental for their trip to Costa Rica.

Excellent location & Comfortable Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently vacationed here and we had a great experience from start to finish. The location was perfect and we loved being able to get to the beach without any hassles. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and we enjoyed the ambience and lovely grounds. We'll definitely come back when we plan our next trip!

Wow, what an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was truly an amazing vacation for me and my wife. We love the beach and were so happy to get to be so close to the ocean. The owner of the property, who is such a nice and friendly guy, even gave us some surf lessons. It was the first time I rode a wave and it was breath taking! The place was clean, quiet and we had no issues. We were also so close to amenities while having our own secluded place to stay. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!
