Las Avellanas Villas Costa Rica

Houses to rent for surfers - live like a local
Located in: Pacific North/Guanacaste / Costa Rica / Central America & Caribbean

Overview

Avellanas is a quiet pueblo with very good waves at the beach and has around 50 inhabitants. If you arrive at night you might get scared of the howl of a howler monkey and you'd think is a 1 ton Gorilla, yes it can happen but the next morning you'd wake up at the sound of countless birds (and monkeys) not to be found in New York, Roma, Munich, Mexico City or Rio de Janeiro.
And not to mention the good waves we have in the area all year round. You have 6 very consistent surfbreaks in Playa Avellanas itself plus nearby Playa Negra, Tamarindo and Playa Grande. Other options are a boattrip to Witches Rock and Ollies Point or to explore the beaches 1 hour to the south.

Built with materials such as reforested wood, cement, and glass, each villa is a small oasis where every detail was planned to provide tranquility for the guests... from the family-sized bedroom with a queen size bed and a bunk bed (that sleeps four), an open-sky bathroom, and teak terrace with hammocks, a equipped kitchen (fridge, coffeemaker, toast oven, hot plate, the basic stuff to cook with) with floor & ceiling fans and interior surfboard racks, private bathrooms with hot water.
