  • Michele was a kind and welcoming host with lovely accommodations. The bungalow was beautiful and very well kept. Michele was very helpful in pointing out some places to eat nearby and offering bikes. The location is great for accessing beaches near Cahuita. The one thing we did run into was that the wifi did not reach our room, but that was a minor thing and in no way detracted from a great experience at Michele's place. I recommend staying here if you are in the area.

  • Great room close to the beach! Michele's mother was very accommodating. Since it's a few km away from town, we rented bikes to get around.

  • My friend and I stayed with Michele in December of 2013, and we loved it. We were only supposed to spend two nights there but opted to spend a third because we enjoyed it so much. The room is small and basic but has everything you need, along with a fridge. Michele and his mother made us breakfast every morning and it was delicious. They were so welcoming and nice. The closest beach is just a five minute walk and the nearby towns are safe and nice. Would definitely stay there again.

  • I had 2 great nights at Michele.
    He'(email hidden) and was very helpful in every situation!
    Everything was very clean. I felt very comfortable and was happy to stay there.
    There are a few meters to the beach, there are also some small restaurants and snack bars which can be reached quickly.
    If you don't own a car, Michele knows also good taxi drivers who drive for a fair price.

    The breakfast was delicious!
    I would book again!

    Thanks a lot Michele!

  • My wife and I arrived late on New Years Eve and even though it was raining Michele went out of his way to come pick us up from the bus station. We had a great say in the bungalow and I would recommend it for anyone who is looking to try something off the beaten path in Cahuita. It's a pretty solid 20-25 minute walk from the heart of town but an easy one at that as it's just down one simple road. The beach, Playa Grande, which is quite literally across the street from the bungalow is breathtaking and quite isolated. If you are looking for some quiet beach time...this is a spot that shouldn't be missed. Michele was a very gracious host but also left us to our own devices which is something that we really appreciated. Our favorite part of the rental was the simple but very delicious breakfast Michele's mother made us each (email hidden) and a great first stay in Cahuita. Be sure to visit Tree of Life just up the road the left! AMAZING!

  • Michele advised me on which bus to take to Cahuita and picked me up at the station. The cabina is a few kilometers walking from the city center. You see many people biking as there are several bike rentals close by. The cabina is nice and clean and has a nice little terrace. The ideal place for eating breakfast while you watch the hummingbird having his.

    Over (email hidden) to be.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed here in order to see the city of Cahuita. The accommodations were comfortable, and Michele and his mother made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend staying here if you are interested in visiting Cahuita but would prefer to stay somewhere more remote, quieter, and closer to nature.

    Miscellaneous information to help you make your decision:

    Walking to Cahuita from Playa Grande Lodge takes about 45 minutes. You should not make this walk alone at night.

    Within 10-15 minutes walking distance there is the Playa Grande beach, an Italian restaurant, and the Tree of Life animal sanctuary.

    The bungalow is separated into two double rooms which are rented separately. One room does not have a kitchen but includes breakfast; whereas, the other room does have a kitchen with a mini-fridge and cooking facilities but does not include breakfast.

    Internet access is available but is hosted from Michele's house. This made the internet unavailable unless you were standing about 5 meters in front of the steps of the porch. Despite this, it worked great for short sessions such as checking email (email hidden).
