“An idyllic place to be!”

Can’t recommend this house enough. Perfect for independent travellers who don’t want the hostel or the high end resort experience (there’s very little in between in Drake Bay). As other reviewers said, the view is phenomenal with so much wildlife right in the garden (3 iguanas, hummingbirds, red squirrel, scarlet macaws flying over etc etc). The house itself is lovely - clean and very well equipped with good a/c and fans. One request would be for tea towels but the bath towels were the best fluffy towels I’ve had in CR! Location is ideal, between the beach and the town up the hill. Blissful place to just be and appreciate life!

“Multi Million Dollar View”
Reviewed 5 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We just go back from a week in Drake Bay staying at the Binya House. As far as location, for accommodations, you could not ask for anything more. The view from the back over looking the bay is not a million-dollar view but multi-million view. Spending time in the backyard is very relaxing with tropical birds such as Toucans, Macaws, and Parrots sharing the view with you. Drake Bay is a bird watcher’s paradise. The Binya House is well furnished and has a very nice kitchen when you don’t want to eat out. We ate half our meals in because most everything you get is fresh.
What really makes staying at the Binya House a bonus is you have a local tour guide, Alex, right next door. He can arrange for fresh fish and chicken delivered right to you. He took my wife and her friend on hikes to beautiful water falls, and to out of the way beaches, where the birds mention above were, but they had monkeys entertaining them as well. Also, there are night tours and zipline tours for those a little more adventurous.
If you are into scuba diving, Drake Bay and Cano Island are world class. Costa Rica is very protective of it natural beauty and the ocean is not exception. Large southern rays, eels, white tip sharks, and large schools of Jacks and other fish, were all common on my dives.
Debra, the owner. is very helpful in preparing you for your stay there as far what to bring and what to not bring. Worth every penny. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

“Best Bay View”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We love the view of the bay and all the boat action from the porch that overlooks the bay. We even saw scarlet macaws in the tree in our yard! The house is situated on a bluff just above the beach and is conveniently located in the village. Walking distance to restaurants, little grocery stores, and the water taxis 'launch sight' is very convenient. Air-conditioning throughout the entire house was welcome and the beds and furniture are very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook some meals.. We had a safe parking spot for the car, and the response from Debra was prompt and efficient. We recommend this location for anyone visiting Drake Bay and would stay there again.

“Incredibly Located Beach House”
Reviewed 11 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Got the chance to spend nearly a week and a half at this beautiful, centrally located, beach front house. Absolutely gorgeous with numerous activities and tours to keep you busy. The Winegardens, Hank, and Alex went to great lengths to provide information and make the trip as enjoyable and productive as possible. Will be returning to this location before long.

“Fantastic house with an even better view”
Reviewed 11 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The host was great and had a lot of information to offer about the area. The house was nice and the AC was invaluable. Though all of this was great the true highlight was the amazing view of the bay. Overall a fantastic experience that would be well worth repeating.
