We stayed at Deb and Rob's place for our first and last nights in CR. Their house is beautiful and has great views of the water from the porch and rancho. The bed and guest suite were very comfortable and D&R are great hosts who made us feel welcome. Both breakfasts were delicious (plenty of fresh fruit, good coffee, and... More

PROS: We stayed with Deb and Rob for 9 days in December (2013) and are so glad that we did! While the location of the home is "off the beaten path" (we recommend 4-wheel drive to comfortably get up the mountain as the dirt road was rather washed out and scary for a low-to-the-ground 2-wheel, though all other Costa Rican...

Thank you both for being easy and fun people to have around and for choosing to stay in our home during your Costa Rica vacation. We know we are waaaay off from the typical tourist scene, but for certain folks it suits nicely. Your review was accurate, very kind and we are pleased we could serve most of your needs.... More

We had the opportunity to spend only 1 night at the Oasis by the Sea B&B in Sept 2013 and enjoyed our stay immensely. We were looking for a place to spend the night before we took the ferry over to Nicoya the next morning and we are so glad we found this B & B listed on tripadvisor. It... More

We stayed with Deb and Rob in Feb. 2013. They were they best hosts we could ever ask for! This is by far the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at. Their home was so beautiful, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. And the food was great too! This was our favorite place we stayed in Costa Rica!

Your two photos are remarkable. I want to know the make of your camera? Hard to describe to people what our sunsets are like. Your photos do. Thank you for the generous review.

My husband and I spent only one night at The Oasis, but Rob and Deb made our stay a memorable one. Great company, great food, great comfort and wonderful birds. And in the morning, while enjoying the huge variety of birds, I saw two white face monkeys. Their back deck is a haven. NOTE: If you follow Rob's directions to... More

I had the good fortune to connect with Rob and Deb via the internet prior to my first trip to Costa Rica in January of 2013.

Knowing that Deb & Rob were waiting for us helped us have such a relaxing day at the beach. Their home was welcoming and they went out of their way to make us feel at home and comfortable. Views of the sunset are amazing, and a cooling swim in the pool revived us to go out for a seafood dinner.... More
