Refugio del Sol has five cozy rooms and nice garden, making a perfect combination to enjoy the beach and the surrounding natural beauty. It’s a place to relax. We are located three blocks from Pelada beach and walking distance to Guiones Beach. Some amenities include: free wifi, parking, share kitchen, towels, hammocks, ceiling fans. You will be nearby bars, restaurants, cafes, stores and ice cream parlor.
“Refúgio is exactly what it sounds like!!! It’s SUPER close to the beach, clean, simple, and sooooo charming. The hammocks and tables outside are so chill to relax in after hanging out at Playa Pelada (less than a 5 min walk). There’s a little convenience store across the street with everything you need. And if you want more action, you can walk to Guiones from Pelada and take a cheap tuk tuk back to Refugio (everyone knows the place!). Mario and Jose were so kind and sweet and I honestly wish I spent more time there. I don’t speak fluent Spanish, but they were more than accommodating. It was a dream. Thank you both and can’t wait to see you again <3”
We offer a lovingly decorated self-contained studio/cabin with a small kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet, double bed and secure parking on the premises. Located just 100 meters from Garza beach and with shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance our place is perfect to either soak up the tranquil beach atmosphere of this authentic Tico village or immerse yourself in the numerous activities on offer.
“We spent an overnight at this Garza Beach studio apt before going to lead a weeklong retreat, just to have a little grounding time. Maria + Rolf are lovely hosts, and the place is right next to the beach, just a few blocks' easy walk. Also along that same beach are small stores and eateries, so we were able to relax and amble after a day of travel. It's a bit hard to find as there is not a street address, but they provide detailed instructions in English and Spanish. The place has A/C, great wi-fi, great little fridge, stove, seasonings, cooking implements. Very self-sufficient, for a surfer or exploring the area. Not deluxe but comfortable and cozy. And the hosts are a really wonderful helpful couple, very good people!”
This Playa Guiones Studio apartment is steps from the waves of one of Costa Rica's most consistent beach breaks. The Studio is situated amidst lush tropical gardens and located across the street from Harmony Hotel. Close to everything available in Guiones, yet set back in the jungle at the rear of the tranquil Tica Massage property, this secure and fully outfitted deluxe Studio apartment offers you a premier tropical beach location at a low price, without the need or cost of a rental car.
“This place was WONDERFUL! As a female traveling alone, I felt very very safe at Richard's place. The apartment is spacious, the bed is very big & comfortable, the shower has hot water, the hammock on the outside porch is relaxing & lovely, and it is very quiet all around the area. At the property, you truly feel like you are in a tropical garden paradise, with animals, beautiful plants and flowers all around you. The host, Richard, is extremely helpful and kind and knowledgeable of the area. The added touches he provides each guest are so thoughtful, that it really completes your stay. The outdoor shower and water hose for washing off the sand are also an added perfect amenity for when you return from the beach (which is only a 5min walk away - so close!!) . Richard and his family are very warm and friendly and hospitable and at the same time, they respect your privacy and space. I guarantee you would LOVE your stay at Richard's place, I highly highly recommend it, and plan on returning in the future to share this space with others because it is so great! Many thanks again Richard :)”
