First Andrew is very welcoming and helping: I took us to the city center several times and helped us to book a taxi at the end.
Concerning Andrew's house :
- Nice jungle surrounding
- Pleasant house with a central living room
- Well equipped, you can cook (pepper, salt, ustensiles...), wash your clothes...
- The beach is less than 1km walking
- The house gets very noisy when it is raining (the roof is in basic steel). For me that the main pain point.
- If you have a car, you will be fine to go around. If you don't, the city center is too far to be reached walking. And even if you rent a bike, the walk from the main road to the house is a pain: no light, difficil to walk especially when it is raining.
- Andrew has big dogs in the property. For us this is not an issue but you just should be aware.
Thank you Andrew for the stay!
Andrew was great! Very helpful. Gave us more than a few rides to and from town. The food and drinks at his restaurant were very good. The house was in a nice jungle surrounding, clean, and plenty of room for 2 people. There are 3 dogs, but they are friendly. It is a bit of a hike from the main road, but doable. Our only complaint was the tap/shower water had a very "jungle" odor to it. Other than that, the place was great. Thanks Andrew!!
I stayed at Andrew's Jungle Beach House for a month in February 2015. I came to Puerto Viejo to experience the true Costa Rica. You know...the beautiful plant species, exotic birds, Sloths, monkeys in the trees, lush green landscapes? When you stay at Andrew's jungle beach house, you get it all and more! The house is situated in the jungle about an 8 minute walk to the main road. Cocles Beach is right there. Uva Beach and Manzanillo are down the road. These are the prettiest beaches in the entire country. I would recommend having a bicycle as it's easy to get to all these beaches (and the town) if you bike. It's been so long since I've biked! I really enjoyed it like a kid again! If you walk into town, it takes about a half hour. As for the house, I really liked the big front porch where I ate all my meals. You can hear monkeys all around and hummingbirds will actually come into the porch area and stare you in the face as you eat! Even at night, it was fascinating to just listen to the sounds of the jungle. In the background, you can also hear the pounding of the waves on Cocles Beach. The house is a nice size and it was easy to cook and live there. Andrew was a great host who met me in town at Chile Rojo, the restaurant he owns. It's the nicest restaurant in Puerto Viejo and everyone knows where it is. He provided me with everything I needed or asked for and I'm proud to say he's my friend now. The only caveat would be the insects. Of course Costa Rica has a very wide variety of insect species as well. Occasionally, something weird may come into the house. But that's part of the jungle experience, right? After a few days, I didn't even care about bugs anymore. So then, I highly recommend staying here and seeing the real true Costa Rica of folklore! I hope to return again one day. Thank you Andrew!
Andrew was a great host. My girlfriend and I stayed for 5 nights. He picked us up from the shuttle and took us to the rental. We had dinner at his restaurant the first night and he even called us a cab home as we were not yet familiar with the area. He is a good source of information and provided excellent recommendations.
The property was as described and we had no issues. We would not hesitate to stay again.
My family and I enjoyed 3 weeks over xmas and New Year's at Andrew's place. It is nestled in the rain forest yet walking distance to one if the better beaches in the area. We saw lots of wildlife including howler monkeys, toucans, red frogs, and beautiful butterflies just to name a few. The house is equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Andrew was very friendly and full of helpful information about the area. We also enjoyed a wonderful xmas dinner at his great restaurant, Chile Rojo. We had a great time and hope to visit again.
Andrew was really nice and it all went as planned.
The House is set in a very natural environment. Perfect for people who love the nature.
