This cabin is as advertised - just be aware of what you are getting. Everyone has their own level of comfort they want to maintain while on vacation and this is an honest assessment of our experience. Full disclosure- my husband and I rented this cabin for only one night as we were staying up and down the coast for a few days. Once we arrived, we realized it was not for us and ended up renting a room at a local Cahuita hotel that was actually $10 cheaper.
Jackie greeted us and was very nice. As I said, the room is as advertised but be aware it is the bare basics for staying in Cahuita. There's no a/c and to cool down the cabin, you must turn the overhead fan on the highest setting, which is quite loud. We stayed many other places without a/c with no issue. It just seems Cahuita was especially hot and humid that day and no a/c was going to mean a very long and hot night. A thin towel was provided and the toilet was difficult to flush. A little embarrassing if you're on a romantic vacation. If you need water, you have to open the window to access the outside faucet. If you are looking for a place simply to rest your head while backpacking Costa Rica and are open to bare basic accommodations, this is the place for you. If you want a comfortable, cool, relaxing spot you may want to look elsewhere.
Also, this is on the edge of Cahuita proper, down the road from the entrance of Cahuita National Park. Cahuita itself is not large at all - you can easily walk from one edge of town to the other in a matter of 15 minutes or so. Just be aware, all the restaurants/bars/nightlife will be away from this cabin and you'll have to walk down a gravel road with no lights in order to get back after dark.
Three stars as we did not stay the night due to the accommodations, but the cabin was as advertised.
This place is perfect! It was extremely comfortable even in a hot humid jungle. Cahuita national park is a short walk away (highly recommend) as is the town of Cahuita (restaurants & bars). Felt extremely safe and the only bummer is that we only stayed two (website hidden) Get ready for some great howler monkey yells ;)
La casa e' un po' piccolina , comoda per raggiungere anche a piedi la riserva .
Alle finestre non c'erano le zanzariere ma alcuni panni che non consentivano all'aria di passare , quindi faceva un po' caldo visto che non si poteva nemmeno utilizzare la ventola che funzionava solo sulla velocita' 5 che era troppo esagerata.
Lo spazio esterno e' molto (website hidden) , inoltre la casa si affaccia sulla strada principale che non e' assolutamente trafficata ( strada sterrata) , pero' limita la privacy.
Cucina funzionale anche se il lavandino era esterno ma accessibile dall'interno della casa tramite una finestra ; bagno piccolo ma pulito , doccia comoda.
Comode le biciclette a disposizione , internet non prendeva in casa ma solo fuori avvicinandosi alla casa dell'host.
Jacky e' una donna molto disponibile e gentile.
Comunque il prezzo dell'alloggio e' superiore rispetto alle aspettative della casa.
I found the place to be exactly as advertised and had a great time during my stay here. Jackie is super-sweet and made sure I was comfortable.
A few things I learned that I wasn't expecting:
Clean towels are provided, but guests are asked not to bring them to the beach.
The supermarket in town exchanges money (USD at least), if you happen to arrive when the bank is closed.
Great little cabin right in the jungle right by the beach really fab value bikes though a little rickety were a great bonus - highly recommend
I really liked this place, and Cahuita generally. Jackie was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The cabin porch is really comfy and I love that hammock. We had everything we needed here to relax and feel comfortable. The cabin is a very short walk to the main downtown drag in Cahuita, and right when you get to pavement again (the cabin is up a short gravel road) there is a beachfront bar to one side and a super mercado to the other. We saw a sloth in the tree across the street our first morning here, and then walked out to Cahuita National Park, where we saw Capuchin monkeys and another sloth. This place is very walkable, and unless you want to drive to an attraction like the Sloth Sanctuary or the Jaguar Rescue, you won't need your rental from check-in to check-out.
I had a wonderful time at Jackie's cozy little cabin. The lovely Jackie very kindly met me at the bus station. The cabin itself has everything you need for an independent stay including a coffee maker! The bed is nice and comfy, it's great knowing Jackie is nearby too. Cahuita NP is beyond beautiful (which is only 2-3 min cycle away) and Cahuita itself is great if you're looking for somewhere undeveloped and chilled with a friendly atmosphere.
