About Momo Beutler

I am swiss and I am looking forward to acommodating tourists from all over the world. I love animals and own six nice dogs by myself.

I live right above the bungalow in a separate house and I am everytime at your service. I am looking forward to open guests. Of course you can always enjoy your privacy.

Momo Beutler purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Momo Beutler chose Guanacaste

I love my tropical garden with many plants, trees and over fifteen different fruits. My property has 2000m2 and the bungalow you can rent is on a private part on it.

What makes this bungalow unique

If you like a nice, clean, natural place with privacy, you can get it here. The tropical garden and the private pool are as beautiful as the house. While you are lying in the hammock, monkeys, nose bears, squirrels or birds come to say hello.

If you would like to see an incredible sunset you just walk five minutes to Playa Buena Vista.

Nice bungalow with private pool and garden

Delightfully quiet and private bungalow in paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Momo's bungalow was refreshing and relaxing. We were a 5 min drive from the main center where we discovered Roots Bakery (our morning habit of the best coffee in the world) and just far enough to be where the monkeys felt at home. Momo was a great hostess and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and had all we needed. We highly recommend staying here.

Secluded and rustic

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our few nights at Casa Yolo. For simple travelers who enjoy privacy and independence, this is a great option. We loved relaxing in the hammock and taking a quick dip in the mini pool. It was a great home base for exploring Samara, although quite a hike from the center of town - about 1.75 miles. We did not rent a car or bicycles so we walked back and forth to the main beach each day. It was manageable although we strategically planned our trips in and out of town. If you also find yourself walking I recommend bringing a backpack to easily carry your beach supplies and a flashlight to make it easier to travel at night.

The bungalow has adequate but minimalist amenities. There is no A/C or television, although you don't really miss either. The kitchen is also sparsely supplied - most noticeably there is no toaster oven or salt and pepper. The Iguana Verde grocery store is on the route from town and has all the supplies you need to stock up though.

The host Momo was also a great asset who was more than willing to help with anything we needed. She provided recommendations when we arrived and stopped by each day to check on things. We simply wanted to relax and unwind but there are many options for excursions (dolphin tours, fishing, kayaking, etc.) and Momo can help arrange the activities with the Samara Adventure Company.

Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property was such an amazing place to be. We stayed there for four nights and coming back to the cool pool was the best feeling after a hot day. The Palm trees and plants gave the place alot of privacy and shade making it a great place to spend the afternoon.This place was very clean and well maintained, the owner was very helpful and friendly. If we are ever to return to Costa Rica we will be staying here again. Thank you Thomas for the wonderful time.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casa Yolo for 5 nights and we loved the place! It's about five minutes drive of Samara beach village, in a quiet neighborhood with a great view on the wildlife. We've seen (and heard!) a lot of howler monkeys. The pool was perfect to cool off after a day at the beach!

The house was full equiped with recent furnitures, and the owners made sure we had all that we need. For the booking, they answered very quick to our questions.

Thank you Thomas and Momo!
