Casa Bali is custom built with floor to ceiling windows all around the house. There is 1 bedroom with a queen bed downstairs, upstairs has the master bedroom with a king bed and the 2nd guest bedroom with a queen bed. Each with a sliding door out to the wraparound porch, split-level A/C units. The property is full of beautiful trees and plants. The wildlife is simply spectacular.

From the reef in front of the parking lot to the miles of beach breaks and even all the way down to the Avellanas Rivermouth. Any level of surfer can find what they are looking for in Avellanas. Also one of the most famous restaurants in Costa Rica, Lola's sits right on the beach at the end of the road. Casa Bali invites you to experience the true Costa Rica.

Why Brenda Carlin chose Guanacaste

Casa Bali Tropical Serenity is located in the surfer's paradise of Playa Avellanas in the Pacific Northwest or Gold Coast region of Costa Rica. The house sits on a privately gated lot that is loaded with lush and tropical gardens with fruit trees and colorful flowers. Monkeys and tropical birds are a daily bonus! The house is an architectural gem with high ceilings, large windows, French doors, wrap around porches and outdoor living! We are a lovely walk to the beach down a tree lined gravel road to Lolas famous beach bar and restaurant. We are also close to Hacienda Pinilla Resort that boasts a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, Tennis Club and Beach Club. However, even with all of these great local attractions, many guests love settling in to Casa Bali and enjoying the secluded beautiful house and all that it has to offer.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Casa Bali. It was perfect! Great location- a bike ride to the beach and Lola's restaurant. The house is behind a gate so gives a private feel. The pool was a great place to cool off and just hang out with a drink. The bedrooms were spacious and very clean. We are looking to go back next year. It was the most relaxed I have been in 10 years. Thank you!

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending a month at Casa Bali recently and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very well equipped from an amenities stand point (pool, A/C, wifi,laundry, etc) and is truly in a fantastic location. It's at most a 2min drive to Avellanas, less than 10mins to Playa Negra, and 20mins or so to Tamarindo.

During the stay we had 2 small dogs who also enjoyed the house, friends, and even family who were a bit older. Everyone had nothing but good things to say.

Definitely recommended and would absolutely stay here again.

just visited Costa Rica with 7 of my friends. We stayed at casa bali for 10 days traveling from phoenix Arizona U.S.A. we had an amazing time and the house fit all 7 of us comfortably. the outdoor space with the pool is great. The kitchen is very well equipped and comes in handy and having a washer and dryer available at all times is a plus. It is perfectly located in walking distance from the beach but also a very short drive from Tamarindo. Christi was great with directions and quick to respond to any questions we had and the house keeper Lazaro is also very helpful and friendly both at just a phone call away. We are missing the monkey noises in the morning and the iguanas in our front yard we will be sure to visit casa bali again.

Great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here on a family vacation and it was great! We were 4 adults, 2 children and a baby and had sufficient space. Owners were great and even arranged for us to have a playpen for our baby ahead of time. It was so nice to have the pool on site and the grounds felt very safe and secure. We were woken up very early by howler monkeys which was pretty cool! The beach is farther than I had expected so would recommend having a vehicle especially if hauling surf boards but the beach was perfect and so quiet with great waves for beginner surfers so was a great place to be. Roads are quite bumpy but this just added to the adventure and made sure it wasn't too touristy which was one of the greatest pluses of this place. All in all I'd recommend staying here for sure, the owners are extremely helpful, price is reasonable and you are off the beaten track with is great!

Nicest house in Avellanas!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Bali last february with all my family. We found this house to be just amazing and made us feel like we were right at home. It's really close to the beach, so once we got there we didn't even use the car to get to Playa Avellanas. If you are looking for a great place to spend some quality time with your family then this is the best place!

Relaxing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I recently stayed next to Casa Bali. My Sister and her family had booked Casa Bali, and the owners wanted to accommodate us being able to stay near they actually rented us their home! Both homes were extremely similar, with the exception of the decor - but both amazing. We spent a lot of time in both homes...and what a paradise it was! Such a nice quiet area, but so close to the beach and restaurants nearby if you didn't feel like cooking. We really missed out on seeing the countryside, as we spent every moment either in our serene pool, or at the beach. The owners were so very helpful in assisting us with planning our trip - and the groundskeeper/security/jack of all trades employee that lived next door was fantastic...what a kind and friendly fellow! He always had the pool cleaned first thing in the morning, even turned on our pool lights one night when we arrived home later than usual...we felt very safe! The house is quite large and would have slept 6 people comfortably, so we had a lot of space to ourselves, but it was glorious! If you are looking for a beautiful and relaxing home to call your "base camp" while visiting this amazing country...then Casa Bali is for you! Oh yes...and we only saw one scorpion!
