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 Los Pargos
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
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!
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.

Best House and best location
The house grounds and decor are even more beautiful in person. This was our second time visiting and everything was just as perfect as it was the first time! The house is steps away from the beach as well as the Hotel
Playa Negra restaurant, where we ate dinner almost every night. The housekeeper Jennifer does an amazing job and the house has everything you could want for a comfortable stay.
Thank you Serge for sharing your beautiful home!
Beautiful home that captures what one seeks in a Costa Rican vacation. Wonderfully accommodating owner and manager. Staff cleans throughout our week. Most importantly it is a very short walk to a world-class surf break. Great time for whole family, surfers and non-surfers alike.
Retreat from the world
Casa Ganesha is a haven, so close to the beach but also a perfect place to sit out the heat of the day with a good book in the hammock. You can see the surf take-off spot from the decks and hear the waves over the tropical breeze, but still have perfect privacy and peace. The proximity to the Hotel is so convenient: dine in the open-air restaurant or cook at home in the full-size kitchen.
Absolutely wonderful, we’ll be back!
This is not only a fantastic house but the location is unparalleled. Unspoiled beauty, impeccably maintained, we were so happy!!!
It'll be great to have you again at Casa Ganesha!
Didn't want to leave!
What a wonderful experience. Casa Ganesha is an amazing house. The house is in a great location, private and well stocked. Being on the hotel grounds is an added bonus, being able to use the pool and restaurant. Sunset cocktails are a must!
The property manager Judy was fantastic, helping us organize babysitting, activities and in-house chefs. Serge was also very responsive to any questions we had prior to arrival.
For surfers, the main break is fantastic and the locals friendly. For beginners, the sandy beach 200 yards south is perfect and the hotel surf shop rents soft boards. For kids, the rock pools at low tide provide hours of entertainment.
November was a great time to visit, the weather was perfect and the beach uncrowded.
We would recommend Casa Ganesha to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation in paradise.
We can arrange activities such as yoga, surf, SUP, fishing tours, mountain bike tours, massages on the beach or at the house
