House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)
Richard and gabriela have been here since 1994, we have been married and stayed here ever since.
Owner purchased this House in 1993
Why Owner chose Tamarindo
We chose because of the beauty and biodiversity and the opportunity to make Pura Vida. And to see the most beautiful pacific sunsets while walking on a white sand beach with extraordinary seashells.

It is 4 minutes walk to the beach and the blue lagoon and to some of the best surf brakes on the gold coast.

Excellent, quiet beach experience
If you’re looking for a quiet experience and great surf then this guest house is a great choice. The owners live on the property and are wonderful people. Their local knowledge and kindness adds to the experience.
Beautiful palm canopy, sounds of birds and monkeys in the morning and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the beach and surf. The kitchen is well-stocked and makes eating in easy.
If you’re looking for a place away from the typical tourist development and hustle this might be the one for you.
Beautiful and Charming!
The property is absolutely magnificent, it made our stay perfect. It felt very secure as it is protected by a large wooden gate. The home was ideal for our getaway with a short walk to the beach and beautiful scenery. The area is very diverse with wildlife such as monkeys, iguanas and many different species of birds. The owners were great and fluent in English. You can clearly see that they were always happy to hold a conversation (they also have amazing recomendations of places to visit) and quick to fix any problems you may encounter. We recommend renting a car to explore the province and travel to all the beautiful cities and beaches (the house has on-site parking).
The only downsides would be the irregular water temperature in the shower and the slightly stiff mattresses.
We are very happy with our vacation and the way it turned out, would reccommend to anyone looking for a relaxing and wonderful time.
Perfect home away from home.
The Blue Lagoon Beach House was just right for our needs. It has everything that you need for daily living. Gabby and Rick, the hosts, make this a 5-star place! They go out of their way to make you feel at home, and although they never imposed on us, they were always there if you had questions or needed help with getting around. The house is just the right size for two or three people, the outdoor patio is comfortable and we spent a lot of time in the hammock. And you can drink the tap water, which is a bonus. Rick's honey is delicious! The gardens make the space feel private and calm. We stayed for a month without a car, and it is doable to not have a car, as there is a bus that runs once a day into Santa Cruz, and there is a small convenience store within a 10 minute walk. The fish truck comes by once a week and there is a fruit/veggie guy that comes by Gregorio's (a restaurant) on Mondays at around noon if you want to buy fresh produce. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk away, and it's the best beach we've ever been to! The lagoon at high tide is perfect for cooling off in. We walked along the beach to Tamarindo a few times - it takes about 2 hours and should be done at low tide - check the internet for when that is. We took a taxi back which costs $25 US. There are several restaurants here in Playa Avellanas within walking distance. All serve delicious food. Gregorios is a local bar/restaurant that makes great smoothies and Chupas, and has cheap local beer. Much cheaper than Lola's! Overall, if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place to just chill, and you like to walk, this is the place! Thanks so much, Gabby and Rick, for making our first visit to Costa Rica so memorable!
Lovely rustic cottage close to a great beach
We were made feel very welcome, close to the beach and a few restaurants, everything needed to cook with the benefit of aircon in the bedroom. Enjoyed our stay, thank you
My friend and I stayed at this rustic, comfortable cabin in Playa Avellanas where we enjoyed the warmth and kindness of the property owners and the proximity to the beach and local restaurants.
Five star hosts!
And... A perfect location! Short walk to pristine beach, friendly pubs and amazing pizzas at Blu all within walking distance.
Gabrielle and Rick are a kind, fun and charming couple. Recipe sharing and interesting conversations were the highlight of our stay! Thank you Gabby and Rick!
