Stunning jungle Cabin Steps from the beach

Bedrooms 2
Space 818 sq. ft.
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. The Cabuya beach is stony at low tide, it can be great for swimming at certain times of the day, or when the tide is out you can walk to the island or beachcomb. 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 beaches of Montezuma and Santa Teresa

Nature lover’s paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved being so close to the ocean and surrounded by the jungle. It is remote and rustic, yet charmingly open and airy. We heard howler monkeys early in the morning, and later saw them romping through the yard while we relaxed in the hammock. This area has a lot to explore. We enjoyed a snorkeling trip, as well as swimming at different beaches. Giovanny was helpful and friendly.

Beautifully kept property in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

This really is a jungle cabin - you feel like you're living outdoors with all the conveniences. The kitchen has everything we needed when we chose to eat at home. The location is spectacular, just a few steps to the beach where we swam at high tide. We had visitors every morning over breakfast -- families of monkeys, cows from the field across the road, the local dogs and birds.

Cabuya is not nearly as busy as some of its neighbours with lots of places to eat out and two grocery stores. We took trips to Montezuma and the beaches round there - would highly recommend the restaurant at the butterfly gardens. And, because it was the dry season, could take the shortcut over the hilll to Santa Teresa... loved the beach at Playa Hermosa.

Our whole experience was made so much better by the wonderful Jenny who's just a phone call away to fix anything that arises. Thank you, Jenny and Fiona, for a great visit.

Relaxing, Fun and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time at Fiona's jungle cabin. The ocean is indeed right outside your door. The house is rustic but exactly what we were looking for. We visited the natural reserve several times where we saw lots of wildlife. The restaurants in Cabuya were perfect for us though we did venture into the "larger" cities, a few times - we just kept going back to the smaller restaurants in Cabuya. Neither my husband or myself speak Spanish except for a few words yet the locals were patient with us. Not many of them speak English, except for Jenny, who is amazing. We had a great time getting to know her, and eating at her fabulous restaurant. If there is anything you need ... ask Jenny! Even her daughter jokingly told me that, "Jenny knows everything."

We walked out to cemetery island - it was awesome! We jumped into the ocean several times a day in lots of different spots. We love to snorkel, but this was not that trip. We took a paid snorkel trip via a boat, had a great time overall but the snorkeling compared to other countries/locations was not great. Not complaining at all - like I said previously we were looking to experience Costa Rica and what it had to offer.

We loved everything about this trip. We were not looking for a resort-y or luxury vacation, rather we wanted to experience a true Costa Rica small town. That is exactly what Fiona's place gave us.

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.
