Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 1 master bedroom + second bedroom 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Beautifully remodelled, secluded cabin in jungle setting, just steps from the beach. Perfect for couples or families (except toddlers ) Lie in the hammocks and listen to the gentle breaking of the waves, hear the howler monkeys as they scramble through the tree tops, walk along the deserted beach, or swim in the nearby rivers. There are plenty of areas to explore in and around the village, great hiking and surfing close by. A good selection of small restaurants for eating out, within a short walk. A real Costa Rican experience, but within easy reach of the more touristy places of Montezuma and Santa Teresa

Why fiona chose Cabuya

Perfect place for a tranquil getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent three weeks with various friends at the cabin in January and loved the setting, particularly the sunrises over the beach. The house has everything necessary for a comfortable stay including strategically placed hammocks from which to watch the howler monkey troop on their regular visits. Swimming was fine whenever the tide was high, and we found it easy to walk into Cabuya's several good restaurants in the evening or to the two shops to stock up on food. Jenny and Fiona were both very helpful and accessible, and Jenny can help in ATV rental and arranging shuttles. Good Wifi connection, bus to Montezuma stops outside the door, and although Cabuya is tiny, its charms develop the longer you stay. I'm looking forward to returning...

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This is one of our favourite places we've ever stayed. And we travel a lot. The house itself is stunning, and waking up in the treetops to the sun rising over the beach-- incredible. Both the caretaker and Jenny, who runs the local el coyote cafe, were so nice, and helpful at every turn. Tremendous value for the money and a place we will certainly return to.

Perfect beach house experience

  • 5 of 5

A beach house that is the perfect quiet, relaxing base to stay all day there or from which to explore the beautiful peninsula. The open style made us feel we were really living in the forest, especially when the howler monkeys come through. Beautiful trees and birds all around. The sand beach in front of the house has glorious sunrises - and is lovely for swimming at high tide - take trainers as it is stony in the water. There are restaurants nearby, Montezuma 5k's away and plenty more great beaches and forest to explore. And all around the interesting, small community of Cabuya. I highly recommend having your own car as there is a lot to explore . The grocery shop is just a walk away from the beach house. It's really lovely to just relax at the beach house too on the upstairs verandah in the hammock.

perfect unique beach house for relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

we loved this house and location. the caretakers are very nice, and keep the grounds very well kept. the property is just feet off the beach, so just a few steps through the palm trees you can find a hammock to relax in, or pretty much your own private beach! some days when the tide is low, the beach is so rocky, but we didn't mind & it was fun to see where the water water was every day. it's good to have a car in the area~ montezuma is just 25 min drive down, & cabuya just down the road, with just a few resturaunts which are great, but we were also happy to go to the market & cook at home/eat outside at the cool tree house type home. also many popular beaches on west coast just about 1 hr away, but we really preferred the quite beach and house right there. the bedroom upstairs is beautiful, with big windows all around for nice tree top views, and a bathroom as well. the main road that goes through this area is right behind house, so just a bit loud at night on weekends, but no problem for us. we loved this house~ just 2 of us, but would be great for 4 as well. perfect place to stay in the area, & for a real costa rican experience!! thank you!

Sweet little love shack

  • 5 of 5

This Jungle Cabin, has two outstanding features: the beauty of the place where it is standing, and the care that the owners have imprinted onto the maintenance of the garden-jungle that separates the beach from the cabin.

This little cabin's backyard is a natural private beach with tall trees providing beautiful sets of shadows on top of curvy paths that lead to the ocean. That point, and the hammocks on the almost deserted beach made our stay. The neighbors are friendly and there's a cafeteria with a good selection of bakery treats.

Id recommend renting a car to go visit nearby spots and if you want to see more populated neighboring beachtowns, but you'll be safe to know that you'll be back to your own beach after your little expedition. Highly recommended for couples with or without children.

Perfect private retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was perfect for us--very quiet, private, and beach steps away. Liked the hammocks along the beach. Melissa and her husband were very pleaant and helpful;. their two dogs were our constant companions around the cabin and on walks outside the property. A nearby hotel offered the use of their pool and also serve food and drinks if you desire.. The next door fisherman caught fish for us one day and we cooked them up in our kitchen. Everything was just as we had hoped for if you want privacy and solitude. Small wonderful bakery and small grocery store within walking distance. Close to Cabo Blanco for jungle walks.
