We were fortunate enough to stay at Dreamy Contentment in January, 2016, during the high season. There are so many wonderful things to say about Dreamy Contentment and its owner, Carmen, that I don’t know where to begin. The property contains the main house, a bungalow over the garage and a lower bungalow. We stayed in the lower bungalow in... More

This bungalow is all you need for an extended stay on the beach. We had a reservation error with a neighboring hotel, and Dreamy Contentment work with us to make sure we were taken care of on our honeymoon. Upon arrival we received a bottle of champagne and some chocolate along with some other wonderful freebies. The room has a... More

Just spent 3 nights there during our week long stay in Costa Rica. If you want quiet, seclusion, peacefulness- look no further. Waking up to monkeys in the trees, watching a pair of toucans sing to one another, star gazing at night where the sky is so black you can see the Milky Way band. The delightful owner Carmen even...

My wife and I came with a friend and stayed in the two bungalows. The location is very remote but in a small enough town with basic amenities. I even got a haircut from a wonderful local lady.There are also two small groceries if you need food close by. Carmen (CJ) is an amazing host. She cares so much about... More

Facility is within walking distance to a very unpopulated beach. The rooms were very cosy and accommodating with good amenities. Very quiet, peaceful, and affordable. Only complaint: the mango trees on-site had shed a lot of their fruits and they were rotting on the ground causing a bit of a smell issue.

We spent two nights here while we explored the beautiful surroundings. The beach is very beautiful. At times we had it all to ourselves. The cabins were well stocked. Everything you need if you want to cook some meals on your own. The grounds were very beautiful. Very peaceful sitting on the patio enjoying a glass of wine.

This was the best place we stayed by far and was the best value as well! Two beautiful cabins, one with patio and hammock, one with balcony, both in sight and hearing of the gorgeous uncrowded beach. So many places I looked at on line gave the impression they were near the beach, then when you get there you find... More

We have stayed at Dreamy Contentment many times now over the past 4 years. We love this place!! It is in a remote little beach community that makes it so special. When out on the beach it is like something out of a movie - it is hard to believe that at times you are the only one on the... More
