The most amazing place on earth
We traveled over Easter Break. We had the most amazing time. Joseph and Blakely are two the most amazing people we have ever met. Everyday was a new adventure. The weather was perfect. If you like to surf, the best waves I have ever surfed were right outside the gate and there was never more then 5-10 people out front. The food is amazing and all the local people are kind, nice and easy to talk to. We booked next Easter as soon as we got our children's school schedule for next year when we got home.
I cannot wait to go back next year and my kids have not stopped talking about the vacation and going back next year. I wish we could go sooner.
Dear Rich and Family! So wonderful to hear from you! Thank you for your review. We loved having you all, what a gift for our kids to play and learn together. Your stoke on our home inspires us to keep working- much gratitude to you all! We will see you next year! All the best to you and the family! Keep training and eating healthy! Big hugs to you all :)
Relaxing Getaway. Wonderful for Couples or Families.
Blakely and Joseph's Rancho Cannatella is a slice of heaven. Our family of five (kids ages 14, 12 and 10) was looking for a vacation where we could stay in one spot, eat delicious food, enjoy warm weather with gorgeous surroundings, swim in the ocean and pool at our leisure, surf, read, play cards and board games and explore an area by car with short day excursions. We could not have been more pleased with the time we spent in Pavones. The town and house delivered on all fronts. An added bonus was the beach in front of Rancho Cannatella was basically a private one because of their location.
As a seasoned surfer, Joseph offered expert advice on where to surf, depending on our skill level and the conditions, AND great surf lessons. We didn't even have to find a rental shop for boards because they have a great selection to rent. He was also an excellent guide when we went on a waterfall excursion. He and Blakely know the area very well and pointed us in the right direction for whatever we needed.
Blakely gave us excellent restaurant recommendations but the meals she prepared were the highlight. Her cooking is out of this world. Not only is she a fantastic chef who uses local ingredients, including some that they grow themselves, but she is also a warm, caring, kind hostess. We loved the tea she made by brewing a variety of local plants and herbs.
Joseph and Blakely (and their two adorable children) have created a very special place for families or couples to create wonderful memories. We will be back!
We absolutely loved having you and your beautiful family. You all were wonderful guests and a pleasure to be around. Kainoa is still asking about your kids and when you will be back! We appreciate your kindness, cleanliness, positive attitude and stoke towards life! You are all welcome anytime and please stay in touch. Much gratitude and appreciation to the ROGERS' FAMILY for the review and your business! Best wishes and big hugs from us all!
Pavones, Pavones, Pavones!
Rancho, Rancho, Rancho!
We (our 16-year old daughter and us) had the pleasure of staying at Rancho Cannatella in Pavones during spring break 2017.
We couldn't decide where to go and ended up booking our trip (and accommodation) two days before flying! Pavones was recommended by a friend...and did not disappoint!
In fact, it turned out to be one of the best trips we'd ever taken.
Pavones is a little off the beaten Costa Rican tourist track...and that's what makes it special!
No hotels, resorts, banks, gas stations...None of the trappings that befall so many other places we've travelled to.
What made it extra special was staying at Rancho Cannatella with our amazingly fabulous and warm hosts, Blakely and Joseph (Kainoa and Kailana).
All the charms mentioned by the previous guests and were realized...and much more!
Right from the very first communique with Blakely, everything went seamless.
She's a professional and runs her operation to a tee.
Blakely can and does arrange any and all of the local activities through a network of Pavones friends. It's all about accommodating 'your' time...and not their schedule.
Our days were filled with beaching, surfing (some of the best in the world!), paddle-boarding, hiking, fishing, horse riding on the beach, yoga, and 'spa' hikes up the river.
And...and even a boat ride across the Gulf to the Osa Peninsula to a zipline, hike, waterfall repel and an overnight stay at an Eco-Lodge.
Our favourite times were enjoying our evening swims (at the beach that is situated right in front of the Rancho), and watching the sun go down over the mighty Pacific.
Our hosts took us to their farm property in the back country mountains and after an exciting (and 'hairy') 4X4 drive, we were offered an authentic Costa Rican meal by a local family. Such an amazing setting and a very special place.
The food was equally outstanding. Blakely made us the freshest breakfasts and arranged wonderful meals for us to enjoy... with all the local organic produce and fresh fish off the Pavones fishing boats.
The local restaurants/cafes were delightful.
We can't recommend this gem enough and can't wait to return!
Lynn! I am just now reading your review. You are the best and such an amazing lady! Such an honor to know you and your family. We loved having you both and hope to see you all again soon. Please give everyone a big hug and sending blessings from us all:)
All the best,
Blakely and Joseph
We had an amazing time and an awesome home with waves and skateramps!
We loved having you guys! We hope you will come back next time you need a get away:) Sending blessings and much gratitude to you and your family!

Pavones - Beauty untouched
Pavones is such a great place. It is definitely off the beat and path. The Ranch is in a great location which is across the street from the beach (as close as you can get). We saw monkeys, huge blue butterflies, amazing birds, etc right on the property. Beware that there is no air conditioning and the journey to get to Pavones is a long, dusty one but it is well worth it.
Thank you so much for your review. Just to let everyone know 3 out of our 4 bedrooms now have A/C. The fourth bedroom is our tree house suite that is open aired with many fans to stay cool. We hope you will come back to stay with us to see all of the new changes since you were last here. Best wishes to your family!
