Tropical paradise surrounded by rainforest with spectacular view of Pacific. Monkeys, parrots, toucans, orchids... 1/2 mile of secluded beach. Simple open house, electricity, hot shower, fully equipped kitchen. Access only by boat. Sleeps up to 6.

The space

Our beach hut is not a luxurious holiday house but rather a simple open house with a palm thatch roof, surrounded by 30 acres of rainforest and only accessible by boat. The downstairs room contains a living and dining area, the kitchen, and two extra beds as well as a covered terrace with hammocks. The second floor has two queen beds separated by a wall, a wardrobe and a balcony with an awesome view of the ocean. The bathroom (rebuilt in 2014) has a hot-water shower, toilet and sink. The kitchen is equipped with gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, blender and all kitchen utensils. The garden is full of coconut palms, travellers palms, fruit trees, heliconias, orchids and hibiscus and attracts monkeys, parrots, toucans and many other animals.

Guest access

The beach hut is a 7-minute boat ride from Golfito. A trail climbs from the landing beach to the house. A second trail leads to a secluded pebble beach. Three kayaks are available free of charge. Water temperature year-round is bout 82 F.

Interaction with guests

Victor and Gabriela, a Costa Rican-Austrian couple, are the caretakers and live in a second house on the property. Victor is gardener, handyman and boatman and will take you shopping to Golfito for $10/hour. Gabriela speaks German and English. Should any problems or questions arise, just call them.

Other things to note

The house is open and doesn't have glass windows. Geckos and bats live there, and occasionally a raccoon will drop by. Snakes are very uncommon, but guests with strong phobias might feel vulnerable. All beds have mosquito netting.

The beach hut is as described and shown in the pictures. It has beautiful views and a very well equipped kitchen with all the basics included. There are no trails/walks from the location without getting a boat back to Golfito but the local wildlife does walk straight through the garden (we saw coati, curasssow and toucans). We also had no trouble meeting Victor to get the boat over and managed to find somewhere fairly safe and free to park in Golfito. Please note this house is not suitable for anyone with any issues with bugs as the house is outdoors and they are everywhere! Unfortunately we did find this a bit unrelaxing in the end and cut our stay short (not Michaels fault!).

We had a great time / stay at Beach Hut Playa Cacao. It's exactly as described in a very unique location. If you desire to experience the true Costa Rica jungle this a great place to find it. Not a corporate version or tamed down experience. This place is private, remote, and beautiful. The views are amazing maybe the best in Golfito! The sounds of the jungle are a truly unique experience. With the exception of an occasional boat passing by all you hear is the symphony of wildlife and insect sounds that is emitted by the surrounding jungle. The onsite hosts / caretakers were great and very helpful. Our whole stay was wonderful, unique, and relaxing...(URL HIDDEN)

Response from Michael:
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are aware that this kind of jungle experience is unique, including an occasional animal passing by or entering the house or termite, bat or gecko doppings, but this is what makes it special. We would be grateful if you would recommend us to friends.

Ich bin von Beruf Musiker (klassischer Geiger) und Umweltschützer (Verein Regenwald der Österreicher) und lebe sowohl in Österreich als auch in Costa Rica. Ich besitze das Haus auf der Playa Cacao seit 1989 und würde es nie hergeben, aber ich möchte, dass andere Menschen dieses Paradies genießen können wenn ich nicht dort bin. Ich bin außerdem Besitzer der Esquinas Rainforest Lodge in Costa Rica.
