About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults+2 children)

Located just a few steps from the world famous Playa Negra beach and surf break, Casa Ganesha beach house lies in an oasis of tranquility surrounded by lush tropical nature and offers everything you could want from life in the tropics. We have done everything to make this house as charming and comfortable as possible, exotic furniture, tasteful interior decorations and modern amenities, so it feels like a real home and not just another vacation rental.

Casa Ganesha is spread over two levels and is composed of two units connected by a patio. It is ideal for 8 to 10 people although it is also possible to rent just one unit for a party of up to 4 people. Several patios equipped with hammocks and lawn chairs allow you to select the perfect spot with regard to ocean view, breeze or shade. The generously sized swimming pool remains cool all year long and is perfect for swimming or cooling down at all times of the day.

All 3 lower floor bedrooms are provided with air conditionning and ceiling fans while the upper floor suite is generously ventilated by the natural breeze and ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas stove, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and all ustensils to prepare meals. An outdoor grill is also available. However, should you feel lazy, the nearest restaurant is just a 2-minute walk from the house.

Upon arrival, you will be taken in charge by Judy who will organize the maid service (3 times a week at no charge) and other activities of interest for you. She will be at your disposal during your stay at Casa Ganesha, helping you with all practical details to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

About Michele and Serge Bosson

Michele and Serge, we are Swiss and have found in love since our first visit threre in 1999.

We acquired this piece of land in 2008 and built our dream house one year later. We stay there 2 - 3 times every year and enjoy water activities, nature and the laid back way of living of people of Guanacaste. We are happy if you can enjoy this place as much as we do!

Michele and Serge Bosson purchased this house in 2009

Why Michele and Serge Bosson chose Guanacaste

Right next to Playa Negra's surf break. Ideal for families and friends. Birds, butterflies and monkeys can be seen daily from the house. We enjoy the tranquility of the spot, mild climate and love this beach for swimming and surfing. The water temperature is perfect all year round. Very friendly local people.

What makes this house unique

Generously sized upper deck as a place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Master's bedroom 'open to the wind' allowing you to have a natural sleep. Ecological swimming pool cleaned without using chlorine. Very gentle to the skin. Bodyboards available for guests.

An Amazing Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from a cold, February winter in Upstate New York to find one of the best places to unwind and relax in the world. We have traveled to many places and Casa Ganesha was just what we needed to forget all about the 14 inches of snow we had just left behind. This trip was planned as a family getaway to celebrate our parents' 80th birthdays. There were 6 adults and one child (12) in our group and the accommodations of the home suited us perfectly. Everyone could relax in their own space and the outdoor spaces (pool, deck, patios) were great places to gather together and enjoy each other's company. Admittedly, traversing the countryside of Costa Rica is not one of the easiest things to do. Once you adjust you mindset (slow it down) and forget about the fast pace we are so accustomed to, you have fully arrived. Once we got ourselves unpacked, which was quite easy, as there is nothing formal about the dress code in Costa Rica, we quickly made our way down the short path to the beach. The waves can be heard from the home. As an aside, if you are first to arrive, take the upstairs bedroom. There is no a/c in this room, but you won't need it. The slight warmth you feel as you go to bed will soon disappear. The ceiling fan is more than adequate and you will soon be cooled by the breezes coming in through the screens at the top of the walls. You will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. The beach is absolutely awesome. The water is the perfect temperature and the wave action is enough to enjoy without beating you up. The swimming best just past the hotel as the "sandy" beach. The area right in front of the hotel is best for surfing, but the rocky (lava) bottom is hard on the feet. The private pool at the house is perfect for a quiet place to cool off, but the hotel pool is also available. On one of the nights, we hired the chefs to prepare a meal for my parents' birthdays. It was exquisite! I highly recommend doing that at least one night. Most nights we prepared meals in the kitchen. We also ate the hotel. There aren't a lot of nearby restaurants, so cooking at home is easiest. Tamarindo, which offers more restaurants, is a short drive away. Overall, the experience of renting, traveling to, and staying in this home was phenomenal. The owners are very responsive to questions. The property manager, Judy, was delightful and very helpful with anything we needed. Have an amazing and relaxing vacation to Playa Negra!

Owner's Response: You've really been touched by the grace of this place and it really makes us proud and happy. We built this house as a place to escape from the hectic world we live in. Every time we spend time there, with family or friends, we feel resourced and able to appreciate the little things that makes life great. It's really a wonderful feeling whenever we can share this experience with guests such as you. Thank you! Michèle and Serge

Absolutely the best!!

  • 5 of 5

Not only where the owner and his property manager so responsive but they where so helpful! We loved the house, it was perfect in size and privacy. The house was truly a peaceful home in what was a secluded lovely area. The walk to the beach was so close and the people in the town are so nice! I highly recommend hiring the private chef they recommend but note there is an awesome pizza place around the corner. We are planning our next trip and will stay at their home again!

Splendid time in a great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Ganesha with 3 other couples and our 2 years old. We all had a good time, the house is superb, the pool is a must have in this warm climate and the ocean is right next door for surfing and sunsets.

Amazing house! Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Genesha with our two younger children (ages 12 and 10), our adult son and his girlfriend (twenty somethings). The house is beautifully designed with a perfect balance of outdoor spaces to enjoy the surrounding environment and comfortable indoor accommodations. Hitting the beach in the morning (short walk) and them relaxing in the pool was great. Playa Negra is a renowned surfing beach, and it lived up to its reputation. Sandy Beach just a minute walk away was great for the non surfers. The small village of Los Pargos was a pleasant surprise with some great dining choices.

There are limitless opportunities for adventure in Costa Rica. We chose to drive a few hours up to the Rincon De La Vieja park for a riding, tubing, and zip lining tour which as superb. A drive south to the surfing outpost of Marbella was also a lot of fun.

Judy the manager was terrific - very friendly and helpful.

This house was perfect for our family!

Loved our stay at Casa Ganesha!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent two weeks at Casa Ganesha. What a wonderful home and property. The house was as pictured. Our 4 kids all had their own bedroom with air conditioning and we took over the master. No air conditioning but so open and with ceiling fan it really wasn't needed or missed.

Overlooking the ocean, it was nice to hear the crashing waves at night and the howler monkeys in the morning. Lots of wildlife: bird visitors every morning and two iguanas on our roof!

Our kids lived in the pool much of the day but enjoyed their time in the waves boogie boarding and learning to surf.

Good restaurants in the area and being part of the hotel Playa Negra complex made us feel safe (on site security). Being able to run a tab a the restaurant was convenient for beachside pina coladas (and smoothies for the kids).

House is located about 30 minutes south of Tamarindo (great touristy spot) which is nice for a visit, a dinner out or to stock up on groceries. Santa Cruz (also 30 min) was the most reasonable place to pick up groceries. Be sure to check out the cool church tower there!

Know that the weather it is HOT on the west coast during dry season. 33-36 degrees (91-97F) almost every day with high winds some of the time. Landscape is pretty brown. Well worth taking a day or two to see rainforest. We spent one night in Fortuna to see the Arenal Volcano and rainforest. This was the rainforest I had come to see. Rainforest hike and incredible zip lining experience over the canopy. It was lush and green. Great experience but was nice to return to the sun, beach, pool and wonderful home of Casa Ganesha.

Everyone we dealt with through this rental was wonderful! Serge answered emails quickly and answered all our many questions. Judy, the house manager was always available and Jennifer, the housekeeper did a wonderful job. People at the hotel were friendly and helpful.

Casa Ganesha is well worth the visit!

Casa Ganesha - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our three adult children, spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful home in early December. Our kids each had their own private bedroom, all with air-conditioning, which they loved, and my wife and I enjoyed the master bedroom (no a/c, never missed) and slept to the sounds of the ocean and nature. I've never slept so well.

The proximity to the restaurant at Hotel Playa Negra was an added benefit - great food and great people. We all agreed this was our best ever family vacation. Our thanks to Judy and staff for helping make it so.
