About our home

Please read the availability before requesting a swap. thanks
Just pack your shorts and flip-flops to visit our home in Costa Rica! We have been enjoying Costa Rica since we had the house built in 2005. It is in a REMOTE part of the Guanacaste Penisula located between Tamarindo and Nosara as far west as you can go before you jump in the ocean. Also mentioned as one of the five Blue Zones of the world we are on the Nicoya Peninsula.

If you walk out the front door and take 361 of my steps you will be touching our beautiful black sand beach. The first question we are always asked is it really on the beach and yes, you sit on the deck and watch the sunset every evening at approximately 5:45.

Our home features 2500 square feet of living space and was created with local materials and artists keeping exotic Costa Rica feel so you can experience the culture in comfort. The upscale seaside 3-Bedroom, 3 baths with an additional sunroom and King size futon.

Enjoy all the comforts of home in Costa Rica paradise; full kitchen, laundry, daily housekeeping available, 2 grand verandas to watch the whales go by, hammock, satellite TV, DVD, and stereo surround sound. Features Seashore themed architecture and furniture with panoramic ocean views.
We hope you will enjoy our home and property as much as we have for all these years!

Where is it?


You will be visiting the Guanacaste Peninsula on the West coast of Costa Rica, our home is as far west as you can go without falling into the Pacific ocean. Costa Rica is known for its warm weather, which means no matter what time of year you visit it will be hot at our house. You will also experience rain, sometimes more and sometimes less. You will also be staying in a jungle environment but of course with all the modern amenities. So be prepared and plan for bugs and wildlife of all kinds. Costa Rica has over 500,000 different types of wildlife within its borders and many of them are insects. Costa Rica is the outdoor lover's paradise from zip lining, surfing schools, horseback riding, mud baths, rainforest waterfalls, nature walks, turtle reserves, bird watching, swimming, kayaking, white water rafting you name it we have it.
