Overview

Cabuya Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

The stunning Japanese style guest house is located on the beach by the small fishing village of Cabuya, 3 miles from Montezuma. The sun rises directly in front of the house over the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Nicoya. Costa Rica’s first national wildlife reserve is located a short distance to the south, at the tip of the peninsula. Provisions are available in Cabuya, and several excellent local eateries provide a variety of cuisines. Montezuma,with its beautiful beaches, many restaurants and activities, is just three miles up the beach to the North. There are special spots to swim and explore between Montezuma and the Wildlife Reserve. Dos Iguanas was inspired by the clean and simple style of traditional Japanese architecture.The house is a sincere and successful expression of a natural philosophy that invites surrounding scenery into the living spaces. Your stay will most likely include a visit by the local tribe of howler monkeys. Ask about additional space in our main house.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

This place is Costa Rica at its best! This was my husband and I's second trip to CR and dos iguanas was everything we could have asked for. We fell asleep at night to the howler monkeys and woke in the morning to see spider monkeys and large iguanas in our back yard. We bought fresh red snapper from Vin (Cindy's uncle) that was caught that morning and rented kayaks from Jim two doors down to do some snorkeling at isla de Cabuya. The hammocks were great for afternoon siestas! The house had everything we needed and was the perfect distance to (and distant enough from the noise) of montezuma. Do yourself a favor and check this place out! Make sure to rent a car. We will be back hopefully this year with family! Sean we can't thank you and Cindy enough!!!!

The Real Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We've returned several times to this beautifully handcrafted house to enjoy sunrises on the beach, monkeys in the trees, bird watching, beachcombing, fishing and getting to know folks in the friendly village. This is a wonderful Costa Rican experience off the beaten path.

Notes:
If you are looking for a simple, pure but elegant style of living, away from the intrusions of TV, doorbells, unwanted phone calls and endless errands, Dos Iguanas will fit the bill. You will truly feel you have been AWAY. The living is al fesco; you may be visited by hummingbirds, parakeets or even toucans. An iguana or two will surely pass by as you dine on the porch. Here you are one with nature: there is no escaping it! Neighborhood fishermen will be glad to take you out to hunt your supper or bring back their fresh catch to you. In fact, they will even prepare your meal!. Homade jellies by Nena, from local fruits, are for sale at the nearby rivers' edge at Nena's home. Cabuya, just up the road, is a typical small Costa Rican village. There are Tico style restaurants, the local Cantina with Costa Rican Beer, a church, grocery store, a fabulous bakery and even a library. The first-ever National Park is down the road for your hiking pleasure.
