FANTASTIC ADVENTURE and a GREAT, COZY HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I went on this solo adventure to Costa Rica to : 1) Learn to surf 2) Horseback ride on the beach 3) Soak in the sun 4) Eat great food 5) Read & relax and soak up more sun!

1) Surfing: Ben the owner of this terrific home is an excellent surf instructor. He is patient, kind and very informative. Ben taught me the basics with an emphasis on safety and reading the ocean. There is no "hour" lesson, Ben takes whatever time that you need for your lesson and I can vouch that he will work with you until you can barley move your arms or legs!!! It's about whatever you want from your lesson . His positive attitude and encouragement was refreshing and I can't wait to surf again.

2) Beb arranged for my horseback riding excursion. The wrangler he chose was on time, pleasant and once again "it was all about me", where I wanted to go, stopping for pictures, breaks, and letting me race down the beach. I couldn't stop smiling the entire ride! I invited Glenna, the caretaker, to join me. She helped me translate and added to my fun adventure with her kindness and friendship.

3) Soaking up the sun: The house is located a short walk to the beach. It is a very enjoyable walk, lots of monkeys, parrots and a very cool boardwalk thru the mangrove trees. I spent hours at the beach, running, walking and taking in the beautiful warm Pacific Ocean.

4) Great Food: Any direction you chose to walk there is an wonderful restaurant to dine in. Breakfast at Cabinas Los Olas turned into a almost daily ritual after my morning walk, Lola's for amazing ceviche and the best view! The Burrito Box is fresh and very good, Mauna Loa if you are craving killer tiramisu! All within a 5 minute walk..... Mauna Loa also has a very fun gift shop!

5) Rest and RELAX! : Ben and Glenna's priority is your happiness. They were perfect. Attentive while giving me my space to read, relax and soak in this beautiful country. Ben is avid about security and I was very comfortable being solo. He arranged for a private shuttle for me due to my late arrival and very early departure. Tamarindo Shuttle was on time, efficient and the drivers, pleasant . The vehicles were in excellent condition and comfortable. Due to Ben's attentiveness and concern I was able to completely enjoy myself. He is a long time resident of CR and willingly shared his knowledge. I had 6 hammocks to chose from to enjoy my books or a siesta. I CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN!!

The home is very comfortable. Every room has a

Good house for rent

  • 5 of 5

Very close to the access of Avellanas beach (by walk), which is very beautiful and good for surfing. The house is comfortable with a large space. More tools and gadgets in the kitchen would be interesting, but the house contains more items than the basic stuff. If you have a car you can easily access the center of Tamarindo, which has more restaurants and nightlife. Benny is a great guy and received me and my colleagues with enthusiasm. I strongly recommend the house.

Awesome beach house

  • 5 of 5

Bennys house was exactly what we pictured. A beautiful house by the beach with A.C. and a place to lay our heads at night. Walking distance to the beach with plenty of awesome restaurants near by. You don't need a car but we found that renting one with 4 wheel drive left us more options to see things we may have missed without one. Benny will accommodate you in any way possible to make sure your stay is perfection. I stayed with my brother who took up the awesome chance to get surf lessons with Benny. He is a great teacher and they both walked away from the water with smiles on their faces. There is a huge Mango tree right outside the door that we picked from. The bathrooms are so cool! Lounge outside in the hammocks with a beer and listen to the howler monkeys. If your looking for a cool spot by the ocean and like to kick it low key this is the spot. Don't expect to be pampered wined and dined. Staying here makes you feel like you live like the locals. Do it. It's awesome. We love Benny and his house!!!!! We want to come back!!

Peaceful,safe and relaxing for the family.Excellent hospitality and attention to comfort. Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

We felt at home and having children it was important to have that comfort and safety. Truly a home away from home. The natural surroundings, peaceful evenings, relaxing sound of nature were amazing. Ben was extremely attentive and made every day of our stay wonderful. Can't wait to return and enjoy the newly upgraded/renovated home where we created so many wonderful memories. The Easter egg hunt was so much fun! Yes! The Easter Bunny travels everywhere. 😉?

We can't thank Ben enough for his home and look forward to seeing him again. Bessie and Elvis, the home puppies, were loving and we made them a part of our family. If you are looking for a true "Costa Rican" natural home experience, we highly recommend this beautiful land and home.

The "Playa Avellanas" was an experience but we preferred Playa Junquillal, Langosta and Tamarindo which was a short drive away.

Best to buy your food at the Supermarket and make your meals. However, "El Manantial" (a bit rustic) serves a delicious dinner.

Finally, make your reservations early because this house is "High" in demand.

Thank you Ben!!!
