Casitas for Rent in Cuesta de Piedra

Recently there have been some people looking for short term rentals, so I posted about a house sharing possibility #1, and the house sharing possibility #2, and here are a couple casitas for short term or long term rental.

Cuesta de Piedra is a small town between Concepción and Volcan. A Google Map will help you find it. It is at a higher elevation and cooler than David and the towns along the highway. The area is mostly farms and a lot of dairy cattle, and it’s really beautiful. The casitas are on Cedo’s property, and behind them is her farm. The farm has dairy cattle, pigs, chickens, and some plant crops for personal use. There is a caretaker and his family who live on the farm and do the daily work.

The bigger casita was a restaurant in the past. Now it has been turned back in to a casita but it is easy to imagine it full of tables of happy people eating Cedo’s good food. This casita has a large room in the front which is the living room on the left, and the kitchen on the right. Towards the back are two bedrooms and the bathroom.

The smaller casita has one bedroom and a loft. The living room is in front, the kitchen and bath are in the middle, and the bedroom is in the back.

There are buses that run north and south on the road in front of the casita. There is a small store, a small restaurant and a few other things within walking distance in Cuesta de Piedra. For supermarkets and other shopping, much more is available in both Volcan and Concepción, and of course in David.

The larger casita is $250/month, and the smaller is $200/mo. This includes water and trash. You pay for electricity and internet. If you have questions you can write me at and I will do what I can to get answers and facilitate communication with Cedo.

    I have read your blog in the last few weeks and loved it all!! It has fueled my desire to retire overseas!!! I am an RN and work in labor and delivery. I still have a few years to go to retire, but would love to do so now!!! Hopefully we shall me one day. I also follow Holly’s blog!! Those chicken tamales look so yummy! Tell Cedo I send my regards! Keep posting!


    • Oh thank you! I’m glad you enjoy the blog. I’d say retire as soon as you can, find a place where you can live on what you have and really enjoy life. As nurses, we both know life is precious and not guaranteed tomorrow. If you make it down here we will celebrate with tamales 🙂
