Cabina de Tranquilidad


This lovely tiny house cabin is located in Barrio Quebradas, at approx. 3000 ft. in the foothills, just 3 miles from the bustling town of San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica

The location is perfect...not too hot, not too cold, with temperatures in the mid-upper 70's by day, to mid 60's by night. Two bus lines service this area regularly along paved roads. So, there is no need for a car!

Enjoy the tranquility away from the hustle and bustle, and just minutes from town!

The space

This private little cabina sits high, with a breathtaking view of the Quebradas river, which is just steps away. The wooden interior provides a rustic and inviting warmth. The open deck provides beautiful 180 degree views of the river, and the surrounding mountains and trees. At night enjoy the freshness of the air, the sounds of nature, and the lulling sound of the river, while star gazing from the deck.
The kitchen is stocked with essentials, with full sized refrigerator, and two-burner electric hot plate. The bathroom is modern with tiled shower, and indoor plumbing.
The loft bedroom is spacious, with a full-sized bed. There is a futon sofa/bed, as well.

Steps lead down to the river for relaxing play in the pools and small cascading waterfalls,

or sunning on the rocks.

Guest access

The cabina is located on my property, but is private from my home. It is gated, with easy access to two local buses, and walking distance to a Pulperia (convenience store), and a Bar/Restaurant.

A private taxi (English spoken) can be arranged for airport or bus station pickup/delivery and for excursions (rates vary).

Other things to note

Internet and Wi-Fi are available. The Cabina typically gets a strong signal. 
However, I DO NOT recommend using it for work related activities, as it can sometimes be unpredictable. Occasionally, there are also brief power outages. You are in Costa Rica....expect the unexpected! :)

There is no TV. 
I have two very friendly Golden Retrievers, Bella and Bruno, who love everyone! Please be advised that they will greet you daily for hugs and pets!

**May not be suitable for those with mobility issues, due to stairs. Bathroom is located on the main level. Bedroom is in the loft area.
