About the property

Comfortable open air ocean view home 200meters from Playa Largatillo

Rancho Lagartillo is located between the beaches of playa negra and playa avellanas on a secluded locals beach called playa lagartillo. The home is a 200 meters from the water and the beach at most times will be empty. The beach is great for low tide pools to sit in and the crescent shape part of the beach creates a sand/pebble bottom for easy swimming. This beach is also known to the locals for an outer reef surf break and incredible inshore fishing.

The Home is a 4 Bedroom 4 bathroom open air home with private path to a secluded locals beach Playa Lagartillo. All 4 bedrooms are air conditioned. The Kitchen is great for the family cook, stainless steel counters and large six burner commercial gas range to prepare and enjoy freshly prepared meals. Enjoy the upper deck with screened in sitting area and outside(no screen) sun deck. The dining and living area downstairs are naturally cooled by the breeze from both on shore and offshore winds as well as having fans above all sitting areas. At the end of the path to the beach enjoy our sitting area right at the edge of the ocean front enjoy the sounds of crashing waves.

The master bedroom is set as a queen size bed but is possible to be separated into twins.

the two additional rooms upstairs are set up as twins.

The fourth room is also set up as twins.

The animals around the home include monkeys, green parrots, parakeets, iguanas.

There is fruiting trees around the property. Guests are welcome to enjoy them....if you can get to them before the animals!!

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Rancho Largatillo!!! It's a perfect place for outdoor living, with plenty of seating areas, hammocks, and a short walk to the beach. Even though the road leading to the house is not paved, it's in very good condition: we had no problems finding the house or travelling around to the almost empty, amazing local beaches, such as Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra, and Playa Blanca. The managers were very helpful, we felt safe throughout our stay. I would love to return one day.

Beautiful home with a private trail to an uncrowded beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and spacious, with upstairs bedrooms and a downstairs kitchen and open eating/lounging area. The star gazing from the upstairs porch was spectacular. Finding the place was difficult until I realized it was a mystery test to be solved only by people you were adventurous and deserved to stay at such a private place. First, misspell the name of the place (Playa Largatillo, when it should be Playa Lagartillo). Say it is 600 yards south of Mapache Soda when there is no Mapache Soda.

Felt like home, and we look forward to returning soon!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few friends enjoyed this home and property for 5 days in January. We used the commercial style kitchen and outdoor BBQ everyday, as well as the expansive patio areas for lounging and working online. The upstairs area is cozy, with beautiful woodwork and soft lighting; perfect for yoga and reading and playing acoustic music. We enjoyed the star gazing deck every evening, drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves, birds, and monkeys.

The downstairs bedroom has a metal door with a padlock, so we felt comfortable and secure leaving our valuables locked inside while we explored the surrounding areas all day long. The beach out front is expansive and often empty, with tide pools and shaded areas nearby. The sweetest dog (named Chocolate) was excited to show us around and kept us company during our stay; she is one of the many reasons we will return to enjoy this unique property again soon.

I visit Costa Rica year after year to decompress from the hustle bustle of USA living. I enjoy staying in places that are simple and a bit rustic, yet provide the modern amenities to stay comfortable and connected to the rest of the world. This home was a great deal, and an enjoyable place to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Nice house, great location, but could use a few minor tweaks

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time here...it's a great house, beautiful property, and wonderful location. just right for our group of five adults and two children. The only issues were some minor touches that could have made the experience even more enjoyable, such as better lighting in the patio area. it was hard to see at night as most of the bulbs were out in the fixtures (and there were no spare bulbs). also, there was only one working pool cue as all others had no tips on them. some paper towels would have been helpful too. there was no toilet paper in the rooms and had to search around the property to find it. also, full warning...the road leading to the property is in extremely poor condition. so many potholes it was really challenging to navigate. be sure to have an SUV before you come out here.

A great location! Quiet neighborhood, close to beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time staying at Kevan's house. It is a great house for a group of people wanting to share dinners and beach time. The kitchen is big and clean, the patio/dining area is comfortable with fans and a breeze, and there is a beautiful, secluded beach a short walk away. The bedrooms have air conditioners and the wifi worked well. The house is not for people looking for a fancy, all-inclusive resort, but wonderful for people looking for a rustic, quiet beach experience.

A little rustic but beautiful comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

Unique park like property behind the house leads to a gorgeous secluded beach. Lots of space and a bed for every body. Matresses are extra firm but the hammock was an option for me for two nights and worked fine. We really enjoyed the patios and pool table. Accommodations not luxurious but that's not what we were after. There's a great hangout spot about a mile from house calls Lola's. The road there will rattle your teeth in your head but became part of the ambiance of the whole experience. Rent a four wheel drive for sure! Kevan a really nice guy ; available and helpful. One of my very favorite vacations
