it was our second stay in this lovely little bungalow in the jungle. It's fantastic to cook in the open air kitchen. A little shop with all you need is close by. the calm beach is only 5 minutes away. We would for sure stay there again.

The location was convenient easy about 10 min walk to the beach. The supermarket was located also easy walk and we purchased yogurts, fresh fruits, local chocolate croissant and other good for breakfasts and snacks. Paola is a welcoming, enthusiastic hostess who gave me great suggestions and good tips which helped us to enjoy our stay. The Saturday market was a great experience and we were able to purchase artisinal chocolate. Every morning we were greeted by monkey or sloth. At night resting on the hammock and later falling a sleep listening to the sounds of the rain forest. Indeed it was a cozy stay. Thank you Paula.

Didn't want to leave... Great house, all amenities provided to make the stay comfortable. Well Equipped kitchen, clean, hammock and comfy lounge on front veranda, reliable wifi, walking distance to many restaurants and bus. Lovely beach 5 minutes walk from house. You can ride a bike to Puerto Viejo in about 20 minutes. We saw sloths almost every day in the tree out of the front of the house, along with howler monkeys, several varieties of toucans, hummingbirds and even saw a few frogs. Also saw lots more animals in the surrounding area, so great base for wildlife lovers. Thanks again to Paola for having us.

Paola is the perfect host. She was a wonderful bright welcome to the Caribbean and was very helpful during our stay. The house is set back in the jungle, so we saw howler monkeys and aguti, but is also only a 5 min walk to a grocery, restaurants, and the beach. The outdoor kitchen has everything you could need, and we made an entire italian dinner one night out on the patio. Don't miss the Jaguar Rescue and Manzanillo while here!

Paolas Apartment was the Best. The perfect jungle feeling. Everything was better than we expected. When we arrived, a little late, Paola was welcoming us warmly. She and her husband are really lovely, always in the best mood. We have seen many animals right in the garden. Every morning we woke up listening to monkeys and crickets. The beach and the supermarket are in walking distance. Paola also recommended a Restaurant next to the supermarket which serves delicious food. (for us, the best food of our whole trip) There are many activities you can do, but it is also very relaxing just to hang around on the terrace watching animals. The place is very safe and quiet. Experience the carribean atmosphere. We had a wonderful time and would defenitly stay here again. Gracias paula :) Pura Vida!

Very well designed cottage, very well equipped and clean. Very kind hosts. Those looking for privacy this might not be the right place as there is a lot of people walking in and out all the time(the access road passes directly on the left side of the house).

Our stay at Paolas House was our best airbnb experience so far. The house with its garden is well located between the beach and the Rain Forest with all its exotic plants and animals. We really loved getting awake from the sounds of the jungle. Playa Chiquita was just 10 minutes away from the house and a great spot to swim. Its' even not necessary to book a guided forrest tour to see a sloth, all kinds of birds and some monkeys. They can bee Seen in the trees close to the house. At least Paola is the perfect host. She is very warmhearted and supportive. We would love to come back!
