We booked my stay at Chimurri from Dec 30, 2012 to Jan 24, 2013 and once again from start to finish it was an absolutely amazing experience! The cottages are simple and clean and have an authentic rustic feel to them. The beautiful Playa Negra is only steps away from the cottage's front door. Kiana welcomed us with open arms.... More

This place was so wonderful for its price. Located on a much more secluded part of the beach, its charm lies in its mellow, laid back atmosphere, matched with a a sense of being connected with the local life here. Once you catch wind of the vegetable and fruit truck schedule, you can buy all the local fruit and vegetables... More

I stayed at Chimuri for the month of September while I volunteered at the Jaquar Rescue Center. It was absolutely wonderful! My cottage (Hawk's Spirit) was beautiful - very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and with everything I needed for my extended stay. And I can't say enough about what a fabulous, welcoming host Kiana is! She was always available to answer... More

I stayed at Chimuri in June 2011 and would highly recommoned it. The owner is very nice and very helpful if you have questions about the area (how to walk to town? where to eat?) The grounds are great, lots of trees, open space, birds, animals and a great dog and cat. The cabins are great too - I was... More

I absolutely fell in love with Chimuri Retreat and Kiana! Kiana helped me feel right at home, and guided me based on my interests during my stay. And she has friendly protective dogs there, that I also fell in love with. The cottage is beautiful, newly remodeled, and perfect for my needs. I was there for only a week, which... More

A quiet, simple life is what we were looking for and exactly what we found at Chimuri Beach Retreat! We stayed in a tiny, rustic cottage just steps away from the beach, surrounded by beautiful jungle, and the environment provided the energy we needed to recover from a far too hectic life. Our 3 weeks there were completely rejuvenating! Kiana,... More

I stayed 3 weeks at Chimuri Beach retreat during the less crowded and drier fall season, and I was happy to find it was just like it was described and pictured on the website. I wanted a quiet beach retreat instead of a more typical vacation spot, and Chimuri is a great place to enjoy the beach and the peaceful... More

Chimuri has the best location right across from a beautiful, quiet beach but still close enough to the town to enjoy all its amenities. The property is beautifully landscaped and it is truly a tropical paradise. This is a great place to live very simply and enjoy all the wonders around you. The cottages are rustic and built in the...
