About This Listing
Casa Galim: is in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica’s province of Limon, bordered by the Talamanca
Mountains. This stunning place of amazing pristine beaches will inspire
your Caribbean dreams. The peaceful shoreline is a great place for sun
worshipers. Surfers love the waves. Spectacular sea views abound with
colorful sunrises and sunsets. Scenic jungle of tropical coconut trees and
rich green vegetation harbors wildlife, exotic birds and thrilling waterfalls.
Our beach houses are located 45 meters (50 yards) from the sea!
Take in the clean fresh air while you enjoy wandering among the fruit
filled coconut trees on our wide shore. This lovely haven is tranquil and
secluded yet only 3.5 km (2 miles) from the center of Puerto Viejo, where
you will find fabulous cuisine and entertaining nightlife.
In our cozy cabinas you’ll fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves
and awaken to chirping birds, howling monkeys and the sounds of the
tropical jungle. Wildlife surrounds you - iguanas, geckos and lizards,
toucans, sloths, monkeys and the famous Blue Morpho butterfly.
In the turtle season (summer and fall) huge leatherback turtles lay their
eggs right on our beach.
This is a two story building with separate accommodations on the
ground floor and the top floor.
Each unit has a private entrance and can sleep up to 6 people.
There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two twin
beds. The rooms have large windows - overlooking the sea, the creek,
and the forest. There is a Comfortable living room with a convertible sofa
which can also sleep two people. The kitchen is equipped with utensils,
a gas stove and a refrigerator.
Large balconies overlooking the sea, hammocks, hot water, garden showers
and free WI-FI and a BBQ in the garden, to grill your catch of the
day - these are just some of the amenities we offer. You’ll enjoy the
pleasant sea breeze, which helps cool the house. And you’ll be
mesmerized by the sweeping views from wide balconies, including a
southern view of Puerto Viejo and a view to the north of Cahuita National
Park (which is only 800 meters - half a mile - away).

Casa Galim ist vergleichbar mit „Leben im Paradies“, eine unbeschreiblich schöne Oase für Erholung und Entspannung. Das wunderschöne zweistöckige Strandhaus befindet sich als letztes Haus völlig abseits. Umgeben von purer Natur, Pflanzen und Tieren genießt man die Einsamkeit mit atemberaubenden Ausblick auf das rauschende Meer. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und dekoriert, sauber und gepflegt - es lässt keinerlei Wünsche offen. Yosi ist ein wundervoller Host, stets hilfsbereit, offen und freundlich. Wir haben unseren viertägigen Aufenthalt bei Yosi und seiner tollen Hündin sehr genossen und sind nur schweren Herzens abgereist.
Really nice appartement directly on the beach, but a bit away from the center!
Perfect for 4 people! Two rooms, one living room, cool Veranda for some hangout sessions... The rooms have open windows (but mosquito nets all around don't worry), wich is in a way really nice, cause you here the nature and the ocean (not too loud)!
The cooking equipement is simply, but enough for our needs!
Shower is cold.
All in all kept simply but nice!
The place is little bit of a distance to porto viejo, so you need to have a car or take a taxi to get to the center! BUT you pretty much have you're own private beach 3 footsteps away wich is AWESOME!
Esther and Yosi are such nice people! Communikative and helpful with anything you need... They live there for a long time, so they can give you very usefull tips! There super lovely dog stayed with us and he is really well aducated. We allready miss him! ;)
All in all: If you don't look for a place directly in the center and can afford a cold shower and simple equipement, this place is paradise!!
Thank you so much for your nice review!
About the cold water, I wish you told me, because I could have fix it in one second, it was the electric breaker which was jump off and i just had to switch it on !
All the best regards to you and your friends,
A great cabin just steps from the sand. Fantastic location just minutes walk from the main road to PV, provides tranquility and quiet to allow for inner peace.
The beach is fantastic as hardly anyone is in the area.
Yosi and Esther are wonderful people with calming energy. Thanks.
Yosi and Ester were amazing hosts. They are so laidback and engrossed in the beach life culture. Yosi gave us amazing recommendations to visit the Jaguar Sanctuary over the Sloth Sanctuary, which was spot on since you can see sloth at both but the Jaguar Sanctuary rehabilitates all local wildlife. We got to freaking hold baby howler monkeys.
The home that they built is so well made and esthetically pleasing. You can't stay closer to the beach in the Puerta Viejo area. The place is quiet and very tranquil. We definitely would stay here again.
You should have the red snapper and jerk chicken at Maxi's restaurant down in Manzanillo. Also buy a coconut outside the entrance to Cahuita National Park and walk onto Playa Blanco and find bliss.
