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!
Nature, Serenity, Peace, and Relaxation... (ALSO SURFING, GOLFING, FISHING, & SUNSETS)
Very great place to spend a vacation! Nice living atmosphere and excellent surf out front!
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.
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!
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!
Unforgettable week here! Ben was a fantastic surf instructor to both my boys and they will always remember his patient lessons. Breathtaking sunsets that I could watch every evening for the rest of my life! We spent the week walking to breakfast then to the beach then back to Charm House for an afternoon nap and watch the hot day in the cool hammocks reading. The boardwalk! Everyday the boardwalk...great conversations with the kids each day. Evenings spent enjoying a cold beer at the beach for awesome shell collection and again that sunset. We spent one day in town as we caught the local bus and cabbed it back. Found a cheap cabbie and made plans for him to take us to airport on our return. Ben was nice enough to take us to a couple of his local eateries for dinner and they were fantastic! We would have liked to have had a rental car as some of the eateries were just a bit too far for us to walk at night. House was nice and rustic with charm galore! You spend a week here and realize the simple life is all you need to relax and reflect and enjoy life. Pura Vida! Playa Avellanas -- we will return xxoo
Our host was nothing short of a God send for us! We were your typical Americans (with an 81 year old grandma!) who are not savvy to traveling and being in a foreign country! Our first few hours in Costa Rica were filled with unexpected events. We arrived very fatigued and our shuttle was not there to greet us, but was soon arranged. We then got to Ben's vacation rental (after a few phone calls to find the place!) and the rental was not what we expected..no bed sheets, towels, nobody available to speak English, etc. In spite of the initial conditions, Ben was so very helpful and gracious to us. He was patient and kind, helping us with all of our vacation needs. He helped with tour arrangements, shopping, taught our two teens to surf (which was amazing) with the most sincere and earnest desire to help us have the best experience we could possibly have. The highlights of our stay included the beautiful beach, incredible shells, fantastic food on the beach as well as next door to the VRBO, wonderful people, the wonderful watch dogs that protected us, amazing wildlife (birds, iguanas, monkeys, etc.), the list goes on and on. Despite our initial challenges, the vacation overall was an amazing one thanks to Ben Geren.
The charm house was rustic but very nice! I really appreciated the four hammocks and air conditioning. Our hosts Ben, Elvis, and Bessie were really accommodating and welcoming. The beach was amazing and just a quick 15 minute walk away. Would come back in a heartbeat, next time for longer that 7 nights!
