We really enjoyed staying here, the house is beautiful, the beach right in front of it and howler monkeys gave us a full-day show. You can rent bikes and snorkel equipment from here too and go to check the reef! Relaxing place, 100% recommended.

Exactly what I was hoping for based on the views and the photos. Everything was perfect! Traveled with my boyfriend and my two daughters (age 18 and 15). It was for my oldest's high school graduation gift. When we arrived by a rental car from San Jose (4 hr. dive at night no traffic) we were greeted by two sloths hanging over our car in the tree. We were in awe! Then the leaf cutter working in the yard was amazing! The house was great. Being the rainy season the waves were big and hearing them crash at night was so soothing. Evenings were cool enough to use a small blanket. We were able to keep the bugs way quite well since we had sprayed our clothes with permethrin and brought a travel size bottle of Repels Natural Lemon Eucalyptus spray for legs and arms. We didn't have any problems. The house was very clean and we made breakfast every morning. The café (soda) on the street was soooo good. Try the taco pollo (chicken tacos). Alvaro the gardener works there at times and he is super kind. Little geko minds his own business on the ceiling of the bathroom. I said hello to "lil lizard" each evening, but he was gone by morning. Woke up to birds each morning, howler monkeys (apparently very close) on morning, but an annoying gray woodrail (bird) on one morning. Blue Morpho and hummingbirds in the BEAUTIFUL garden/yard. Terra-adventures in Puerto Viejo on the left side when heading north were wonderful! Took 2 trips through them (Jungle and white water rafting). ABSOLUTELY would go back to Juan's place. Hope you also enjoy your Costa Rica trip as much as we did. It was the most adventurous and relaxing trip! Oh, and the 4 of us fought over who would get he hammocks first. We had to buy one take back to Maryland with us. :)

Me and my family loved this house! Although the bugs can take some getting used too, they really are not that bad. Just keep lights off at night and doors closed and you will be good. Overall, the house is in a beautiful location. Very relaxing and secluded. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from the house. The water is warm and crystal clear at the beach and very private. The housekeeper, who lives in a house behind the main house, is very friendly, respectful, and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet location with not a ton of tourist, this is the place. By the way, I highly recommend visiting the Jaguar Rescue Center during your visit. It is not far from this location and is totally worth your money for a tour.

Juans place was amazing! You couldn't ask for a better location, the beach was a 5 second walk away and the water was crystal clear. The caretakers who lived in the back were the nicest people ever! They were very respectable of your privacy but if you ever needed anything they were more than welcome to help. The house was great and had all the essentials in the kitchen, just remember that it is Costa Rica and expect critters especially at night! the store was not to far away but the bikes you can rent for 5$ definitely came in handy! We can wait to come back!!

If you are looking for a chill, relaxed picturesque location, Juan' s place is the place to go. Not super touristy, which is my favorite. Reading the reviews someone mentioned no hot water. We did have hot water, but not super hot, which you don't need when it's 80 degrees outside. Do your research before you travel. Punta Uva was recently added to the city's water system, the water does not have much pressure or heat...but you really it's perfectly refreshing. The home could comfortably fit 8 people, maybe 10. Outdoor kitchen was nice and had the kitchen essentials. But yet again, this is a rental property in the Caribbean, you have your essentials, not a Martha Stuart kitchen. Mosquitos, again you are in the Caribbean, expect Mosquitos and bring repellent with high percentages of deet. Master bed was comfortable. I loved hanging in upstairs hamoack and listening to the waves at night. We saw Sloth in tree, but no monkey. The Caribbean side of CR, Punta Uva, are not over developed tourist spots, don't expect to find big restaurants and hotels, which is so nice. Everyone's very nice in the city and welcoming. The beach is literally across the way from the house. The beach isn't very populated. There are some venders with pizza, empanadas, fruit, and pan con cajeta on the beach, but if you're planning to hang on the beach for a while, you may want to take snacks. Make sure to have colons when visiting the Caribbean side, it will make life easier and cheaper. I can't wait to go back. I loved the house, perfect for a family reunion or just romantic getaway. We visited in May. Once it gets dark around 5-530, it's pitch black, highly recommend to take a flashlight with you everywhere.
