My 70 year old mother and I rented Yoav and Cecilia's casita for one week, and both of us absolutely loved our stay! The casita is nestled back in the serene dry jungle of Marbella. Far enough away from the noise of any highway, we felt the privacy and peacefulness of be secluded, yet at the same time feeling extremely secure knowing the owner's lived in the house right above the casita. Yoav and Cecilia were adamant about letting them know if we needed anything at all; extremely friendly and gracious hosts.

We'd wake in the mornings to sound of distant waves crashing on the shoreline, and at times could hear the different groups of howler monkeys chattering with each other. We'd step outside in the morning to gaze at flowering vegetation surrounded by the different colored butterflies, the smell the fresh cool air, and would then quietly watch for the different species of birds and other wildlife while sipping our coffee on the front porch.

The casita was super clean, equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals, and the 2 beds comfy. During the warmer days it was really nice for my Mom to have the option to use the air conditioner; although, during the evening hours we'd open up the windows to let in the cool night's ocean breeze.

We will definitely be returning to this beautiful little sanctuary, and would definitely recommend the casita to anyone traveling to the Nicoya Peninsula!

I loved my stay here, after a road trip around the country staying in budget places for locals. The price here was only a little more than many of those places after the very cool hosts, Yoav and Cecilia gave me an off season rate.

I stayed in their attached apartment rather than the separate casita. It was a gorgeous, clean, new, beautifully laid out and funkily decorated place with treetop and sea views, wide open(-able) window wall and a very practical and tidy layout, fitted with new fridge, gas stovetop, stylish concrete sink and countertop and a beautiful, clean, practical bathroom.

I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend any time in this lovely area, whether surfing, or turtle-seeing, an overnight trip stop, or just chilling out in the gorgeous nature here for a week or more.

Best of all are the very cool and personable hosts, Yoav and Cecilia. These guys are grade 'A' humans and fascinating people, always easy-going and willing to help.
