Tropical beachfront house w/ private pool, lanai, balcony & beach access!

This spectacular beachfront hacienda is just what you and your family and friends are looking for during your Costa Rican vacation. There is so much space, so many awesome amenities, and so many things to do that you'll never want to leave! First thing, throw down your bags, crack open a frosty beverage, and stretch out in the enormous open-concept living space. You'll love the natural worked-wood supporting beams, the spiral staircase corkscrewing up into the second level, the beautiful floors, and the flood of natural light cascading through huge windows.

The beautiful kitchen is equipped with everything your family chefs need to turn today's catch into a veritable feast. Enjoy it out on the expansive lanai with cold drinks and lively conversation then drift off to sleep in the super-comfortable hammock. When you're not down at the beach (just steps away), cool down in the private outdoor pool while catching up with a great novel out on the balcony.

What's nearby:
Spend your afternoon admiring the ocean, or take a surfboard out to catch some waves. Feeling a little rusty? Head over to Surf Lessons Tour, just five miles away, to get some solid instruction on riding stance, balance control, and wave-catching from knowledgeable and friendly instructors. If you'd prefer to get a little farther out on the water, check out Dolphin Tours to book a trip along the shore to find dolphins and whales. You can also see moray eels and white tip reef sharks when you go under for a bit of snorkeling! Maybe you'd like to get in some inland nature? No problem; Baru Waterfalls Tours is only 19 miles away and offers trips to see a three-tiered waterfall tucked away in a South Pacific jungle. You might even be visited by the occasional Toucan while dining out at the seasonal open-air restaurant.

The property has direct access to the beach that is part of the National Park!
Walking distance to a short hike at Playa Arco.
The beach changes a lot during high tide, you can enjoy the beach at low tide.

We enjoyd the stay in this house. It is big, surrounded by nature and couple of steps to the beach and the sea. The pool is very clear and nice. The furniture and equipment is a bit old but that was compensated by the privacy you have there and we also saw many animals just from the terrass.

Que lindo lugar, pero la casa estaba sucia, muchas telarañas, hubo que limpiar la vajilla, la pileta no esta impecable. No hay maquina de cafe, microondas…una parrilla vendría muy bien
Manager response:
Rafael , thank you for the review of your stay. We are glad you enjoyed our home. We apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. The local manager will make the cleaners aware of the areas that need more attention. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Thank you!

Casa Ballenato is a unique experience where you can enjoy nature.
We enjoyed the rainy days as much as sunny days of our stay. It is a wonderful spot and a cool rustic ambience.

Unbelievable place and view. Decorated perfectly. Remote and private location makes you feel like you’re shipwrecked in the best way. Francisco helped us cut open coconuts for fresh drinks!

Magnifique maison avec petite piscine avec vue sur la plage et ponton privé qui mène à une somptueuse plage déserte. Coucher de soleil incroyable. Vous pouvez directement accéder par la plage au parc Nacional Marino ballena (belle balade en pleine nature) la chambre est très romantique avec une vue magnifique sur la mer. La nuit on a l impression de dormir sur la plage bercé par le bruit des vagues. Françisco est très sympathique et accueillant. Nous avons adoré cet endroit encore très préservé. Nous avons eu la chance de voir des capucins au dessus de la maison et de magnifiques Aras. Retour à la nature ressourçant et apaisant.

Super cool place! Had the beach all to ourselves. Open air kinda lay out. Ana and Francisco were super nice as well. Ana made us a delicious dinner so I’d definitely recommend taking her up on the offer. We wish we had the time to stay longer!

Ubicación excepcional, bonita decoración, y muy bien tratados por los anfitriones.
Diego . Aug 2018
Es un muy buen espacio, en medio de la naturaleza. Recomiendo el espacio para aquellas personas que no buscan un espacio lujoso y que quieran estar en contacto con el medio ambiente. La playa es hermosa, la terraza muy comoda para tener comida o simplemente pasar el dia en la alberca. La host Valetine nos apoyo desde el inicio. Recomiendo el lugar para vivir una experiencia de estar en contacto con la bella Costa Rica.

Una casa diferente y divertida, la pasamos muy bien, agradable para ir con un grupo de amigos o en familia.

Beautiful location but walk over to the next beach to swim. Nice hosts and caretakers. The little bats sleeping in the roof are very cute and harmless!

We arrived to Fabio's place by night and it was like to arrive in a dream...all the decorations, the lights are amazing! We felt like to be in a pirate's house! This house is really special, never saw something like that! The access to the beach is perfect and the beach is a slide of paradise. Francisco and Ana, the caretakers, are really nice persons. We are looking foward to come back with our entire family. Such a nice experience! Thank you Fabio for sharing your special place!
