The Space

EXPERIENCE THE REAL CARIBBEAN OF COSTA RICA IN THIS SYMPATHETIC LOCAL MINI-HOSTEL

This is the place of a super sweet local family that I have been friends with for over six years now.

They have a simple but beautifully authentic Caribbean-style double house, with one cabina with own bathroom and a small kitchen on one side, and two small private rooms on two floors with shared kitchen and shared bathroom on the other side. Big parts of the house have been newly renovated in the last 2 months, and the plan is to improve more details over the course of the next months.

The house is set in a beautiful, well-maintained garden in a quiet and safe neighborhood just 400 mts. from the small community of Playa Chiquita (with super market, some restaurants and a bar) and 400 mts. in both directions to some of the most beautiful beaches of the area (Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva). Puerto Viejo is about 6 km away and can be reached with an easy 30-minute bike ride or by public bus, that runs every two hours and stops just 150 mts. from the house. The nature reserve Gandoca-Manzanillo is about 7 km away and the popular Jaguar Rescue Center just 2 km.

This ad is for the cabina. It has one bedroom with double bed, mosquito net, a fan and some shelves. The small kitchen is equipped with a stove, fridge, some pans and kitchenware for basic cooking. There is a little terrace with table and chairs in the front and a nice tiled bathroom with cold water shower and another little terrace in the back. All floors are tiled with hand-made Caribbean mosaiques, made with love by the owner.

If you are on a budget, are easy-going, nature-loving persons and would like to experience the real Caribbean and its people and share with like-minded travelers, this charming local mini-hostel (with just three rooms) is the place for you!

The family has two kids (6 & 11 years-old) and lives on the same property in the house next-door. They have been living in the area all their lives and are great sources of information all around the area, wildlife and local food and traditions. They and their family are passionate fishermen and will be happy to provide fresh fish and lobsters for reasonable prices every time they make a catch. They can also take you on private hikes, kayak tours and snorkel adventures for fair rates.

Guest Access

Wifi available in the room.
Laundry service 6$ per load (only washing, no drying)
Bus pickup service in Puerto Viejo: 8$ per way
They also offer shared lunch or dinner for very accessible prices, just ask them!

Interaction with Guests

The families English is pretty basic still, so you will need to apply your Spanish or hands and feet for communication most of the time :) I will take care of all your questions and arrangements prior to your stay and am happy to assist with any questions or problems during your time here (I just live 300 mts. away). I can also assist with your tour and transportation arrangements, should you need any help.

The Neighborhood

Just 400 mts. from the small community of Playa Chiquita (with supermarket, some restaurants and a bar) and 400 mts in both directions to some of the most beautiful beaches of the area (Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva). Puerto Viejo is about 6 km away and can be reached with an easy 30-minute bike ride or by public bus, that runs every two hours and stops just 150 mts. from the house. The nature reserve Gandoca-Manzanillo is about 7 km away and the popular Jaguar Rescue Center just 2 km.

  • Erst mal vielen dank für die zwei schönen tage und die tolle Unterstützung. wir waren mit dem Zimmer sehr zufrieden, da es sauber war und den Bildern entsprach. Da wir kein spanisch sprechen hat Anja für uns die Dolmetscherin gespielt und unsere Fragen an die Gastgeber weitergeleitet, falls wir das nicht hinbekommen haben. Sie hat sogar ein typisches Essen organisiert, welches die Familie für uns zubereitet hat und es war lecker. Falls ihr dort übernachtet, fragt einfach danach, denn die Familie ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Anja war auf dem Handy immer erreichbar und hat uns mit tips bzgl Restaurant, Strand etc versorgt.
    Hier noch was zur Ausstattung: es gibt nur kaltes Wasser zum duschen, was aber bei der Temperatur für uns ok war. Die Fenster sind nicht verglast aber dadurch kriegt man die Tiere und die Natur besser mit.
    Wir können die Cabina nur weiter empfehlen und sagen nochmal danke.
