Wonderful place, beach and people!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in the house for a month, and we all loved it! The house is clean and nice. Relaxing in the hammock was a favorite pastime. Not a far walk from the beach, we could carry our boards to and from without any issues. The beach itself is very nice, not a ton of snorkeling, but some fairly consistent and great waves! Two of us had never surfed before, and they found waves they could enjoy. Good breaks for intermediate and advanced as well. Gabriel and Rick are wonderful hosts, helping us out with grocery runs and teaching us how to make some delicious Tico meals! We really enjoyed our stay!

This was the most amazing week! Rich and Gabriela (and the dog Sharky) are such wonderful people. This home is fully equipped and very comfortable. We stayed for a week and would have loved to stay longer. The walk to the beach was short and fun, every time. Gabriela took her time to teach us to cook a traditional Costa Rican meal. While they live on the same property, they offer a great deal of privacy and are there if you need them...leaving you be if you don't. I always felt very comfortable and safe here. I will definitely stay again. This was just lovely. You will not regret staying here.

We stayed there 4 nights. The kitchen was a big plus. Completely stocked with everything you might need. Full size fridge and gas range. You really save some money cooking in. VERY clean, and simple. AC in the main bedroom, and hot shower was a plus. We loved the hammock outside, though we wished it were a double. Property felt very safe. The walk to the beach was short. Gabriel and Richard were fantastic, if we needed something they would always help. I had a cough and Gabriel showed up with a lime, and honey, that honey from their bees was awesome. All said, we will be back.

Your own slice of Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

I originally spent February of 2016 at Blue Lagoon and loved it so much, I booked it before I left for July and Aug. I had to leave two weeks early in Aug. for work and was so bummed, but I will tell you that if you are looking for piece of paradise to call your own, no matter if it's for 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months...this is the place! Avellanas is the best beach around. The beach is long and beautiful, and the water is amazing! I was there once or twice a day, which is another thing...the walk from the house to the beach is not only short, but half of your walk is on this cool little boardwalk that you have to see to believe (everyone takes pictures) and you are sure to see howler monkeys and iguanas along the's the coolest! Once at the beach you can go right and have your own slice of the beach to yourself, or left and head to Lola's which I will say is the coolest bar I have ever been to, and I've been to a lot! It's world famous! If you get in the mood for some more action, there is a shuttle that runs you in and out of town (Tamarindo) several times a day. Again, this was the most amazing place and the Blue Lagoon was by far the best spot. I would meet people and they would ask where I was staying and they had tried to book it, but I got to it first, so make sure you book in advance! Finally, Rick and Gabriela, your hosts were the BEST! You couldn't ask for better people...Rick knows the ins and outs and Gabriela really helped me with my Spanish...they are now friends for life! Not sure if you can tell, but I highly recommend!

Wonderful Stay and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling solo and stayed here. Rick and Gabriela and Sharky the dog were very accommodating hosts. The place had everything I needed for accommodations. The walk to the beach was a pleasant one that usually involved monkey and iguana sightings, as well as interesting birds and friendly people. There is a surf shop on the way to pick up a surf board or body board and sign up for surf lessons if you are a beginner.

The beach was amazing. There are nice places to eat within walking distance of the cottage. I can't wait to go back and stay here again.
