This cozy cottage near the Caribbean Sea, is located just 5 minutes walk from one of the most beautiful beaches, Playa Chiquita. You can enjoy beautiful & quiet beaches, surrounded by nature and from the hammock as you can see toucans come every afternoon, or sloths rest on a branch, like the hummingbirds come to enjoy the nectar of flowers, multicolored butterflies rest on leaves...

It's a quiet neighborhood, we ask that guests respect the tranquility of the neighbors, as well as wildlife.

We had an absolutely refreshing, exciting, peaceful and comfortable stay in Playa Chiquita. Paola and her husband are truly warm-hearted and welcoming people who quickly put their guests at perfect ease, making possible the wonderful adventure we all seek when boarding planes and buses for lands far off. If life allowed, we'd have clicked our way to a month-long stay without a breath of delay. House is perfectly kept and clean, bed is comfortable and the outdoor kitchen and seating area the perfect place to cook an easy meal and dissolve into the green and light. Great stay!
We had a great time at Paola’s cottage. It is even prettier than in the pictures and the surrounding garden is beautiful. The place is very charming, clean and functional – unlike many rentals, it contains everything you need to cook. We loved the open kitchenette and the hammock. I picked this place because I love the Playa Chiquita neighborhood: it is close enough to the village of Puerto Viejo to go there for dinner (8$ taxi ride or 25 minutes by bicycle), but a lot closer to beautiful and quiet beaches.
Paola was great at communicating with us and gave us very helpful advice from the time we booked. She was very accommodating and it felt more like visiting a friend than a complete stranger.
The only thing that might be a bit problematic for some travelers is that the bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a curtain instead of a door and that the walls don’t go all the way up to the ceiling. This is very common in houses in the region, as it allows for good ventilation. We did not mind at all.
We highly recommend this place.
We (me and 2 friends) stayed 5 days at Paolas wonderful house. It had all we needed and we really enjoyed our stay! The contact with Paola from we booked the place till arrived, was really good and informative. Beside of that Paola and her husband are really kind people.
Just around the corner from the house (on the main road), is a place called la Botanica Organica that serves really great breakfast! Plus you can rent bikes there aswell.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay on the caribian cost - it's beautiful, people are friendly and the food is good :)
If we ever come back, we would without doubt stay at Paolas place again!
La casa de paola es lindissima, segura y muy practica en todos los detalles para dos personas. Paola es muy amable y nos ayudo un monton. We had a great time! Gracias!
We just came back from Costa Rica, where we stayed at one of Paola's properties, and had an terrific time. She was an amazing hostess and made us feel so welcome from the minute we arrived! Paola's friendly personality and knowledge of the area contributed to a great stay. She provided us with a map and tons of useful tips and recommendations of things to do and see in the area. The house is in perfect condition and it actually looks better than the pictures - the hot water shower, not always available in that part of the country, was also a big plus. Its location is remarkable, a short walk from Playa Chiquita beach (across the street basically) yet it feels very private and quiet. Puerto Viejo is a few minutes away by car/taxi, or about 20 if you decide to rent a bike. We are already thinking of going back next year, and would recommend Paola's place to anyone who's planning a laid-back vacation in the South Costa Rican Caribbean.
Recien regresamos de Costa Rica, donde nos hospedamos en una casa de Paola, y lo pasamos super! Paola fue una anfitriona increible, y nos hizo sentir muy bienvenidos desde la llegada. Su simpatia y gran conocimiento del área tambien contribuyeron a hacer nuestra estadia aun mas agradable. Al llegar, Paola nos dio un mapa y muchas sugerencias de cosas interesantes para ver y hacer. La casa es nueva, en perfecto estado, y luce mejor en realidad que en las fotos - la ducha con agua caliente, no siempre disponible en esa parte del país, tambien fue un detalle muy bueno. La ubicacion de la casa, enfrente a Playa Chiquita, es excelente, y se siente muy privado y tranquilo. Puerto Viejo esta a unos minutos en auto/taxi, y tambien se puede ir en bicicleta, que se rentan cerca. Ya estamos pensando en unas vacaciones similares para el año próximo, y recomendariamos la casa de Paola a todos los que quieran unas vacaciones relajadas en el Caribe sur de Costa Rica.
Paulo was a really fantastic host who made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. She offered really great suggestions about what to do in the area and even had some maps on hand to show us where everything was located.
During our stay for about 2 weeks Paola and her husband were very attentive to our needs. There was a cleaning lady who came about twice a week to take care of things around the apartment for us. We were able to do laundry for a fee of $10/load, and Paola replaced bottled water for us in the apartment as needed.
The apartment itself was very nice. The location is perfect as it is right across the street from the beach. The bed is also very comfortable inside the apartment and the shower has hot water.
The outdoor living area is great for wildlife watching and relaxing. Since the outdoor area is adjacent to the driveway to Paola's home, it isn't entirely private, but they made every effort to respect our space.
On bike to Puerto Viejo it takes about 20 to 30 minutes. There are places nearby to rent bikes for about $5/day and a great grocery store minutes away.
In general, the community is very friendly and safe and a great place to spend a vacation. We highly recommend this listing.
