“Pura Vida!”

If you're looking to immerse yourself in the real Costa Rica then look no further. Sonny and Rita are kind and lovely people who are happy to share their tucked away paradise. I spent a lot of time in the hammocks in the front yard and on the beach just a few steps farther. There's nothing like falling asleep listening to the waves crash and waking up to hearing monkeys in the trees above! The beach is basically private as there are few neighbors and not many people stop by, which was nice to just relax and have no worries. If I ever come back to Costa Rica, I'll be checking out Sonny and Rita's availability first! :)

“Our Pura Vida Experience”

We really enjoyed our stay at "The Love Shack". Sonny and Rita are excellent hosts and we feel we have made new lifelong friends. The cabin is rustic, but it was the experience we had always dreamed of...a shack on the beach. Rita helped us anytime we struggled with the language when making reservations or trying to understand something foreign to us and Sonny is funny, friendly and attentive to the needs of his guests. This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches on the face of the earth.
