The house is the ideal place for families, couples and groups of friends that would like to enjoy the calmness of the house and the area and relax in this little piece of paradise.
This plac was perfect! My mom, brother, and I stayed here for our family vacation. The space couldn't have been any better. It was big enough so that everyone had their on space but cozy enough to have family time. The beach was just outside and we feel asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The solar heated water system was great. We never had any trouble with hot water during our week stay. Maythemi was there to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed. The house is a distance from town but she gave us the number to a reliable taxi and he took us wherever we needed to go. I would recommend having a car to make this even more accessible. Overall, an excellent stay!!
we stayed a week in maythemis house. the house is very nice and large with a great garden. its right next to the playa negra. i felt there very good, as its a nice and very natural suburb of puerto viejo...highly recommended for familys, as the house is big enough for more people...
although i didnt meet maythemi as she was away on holyday, i was very sutisfied with the services, because her parents managed everything to our best satisfaction :)
The house is gorgeous, and the location is excellent - far enough outside of town to be quiet, close enough for a long walk or short drive or bike ride, and right on the beach. Mauricio (Maythemi's dad, who lives next door) was very welcoming and gracious. The only main con is that the water is solar heated, so you only get hot showers after hot days - first thing in the morning or after hiking all day in the rain they tend to be cold to luke-warm.
It was great to meet Maythemi. She welcomed us to the house and gave us all pertinent information. Even though she was out of town, we felt comfortable knowing that her parents were next door. The house is very close to the beach! You can see the waves crashing from the front porch. I especially loved the yoga studio on (website hidden) was an awesome instructor! I've been practicing yoga for over 5 years and this was definitely the most beautiful setting I have had the pleasure of practicing at. We also loved our resident sloth! We called him/her Harvey. Harvey was with us our entire stay. We had other wildlife visitors including geckos, hawks and other birds. The house is a great proximity to town and other adventures. We really enjoyed our stay.
I stayed here with my mom and a friend, and we are so happy we decided to stay here! It is very comforting and warm on the inside and really makes you feel at home. It is across the street from Playa Negra which we enjoyed going to and swimming in the water. Maythemi and her family were very great to work with and helpful with information and making sure our trip was great. The directions given were very helpful and accurate. It is very quiet, away from the louder town. Very serene sitting on the porch and listening to all the birds around. It has a gate and it makes you feel extremely secure, not that it is needed. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Puerto Viejo!
We had a wonderful stay in this incredible house. It is beautifully crafted, and was obviously created with a lot of care and attention to design. It has high ceilings and windows that open on all sides for cooling. The master bedroom is large, with a comfortable king size bed and mosquito net... we had the best sleep of our entire vacation here. The location is great, being steps from the beach, and there's a corner store in walking distance. The host is very warm, kind and helpful. She works at ATEC, a local non-profit tour company that hires local, knowledgeable guides to help provide income to area residents - highly recommended. We would definitely come back.
Our family of four had a perfect stay in this lovely house of traditional Caribbean design. We enjoyed its comfortable layout and appreciated its beautiful wood- and tile-work. It has an elegant yet simple feel to it, which is just what we were looking for in a beach house. It is directly across from the quiet and relaxed Playa Negra with easy beach access, and there is a lovely gazebo to the back of the house where yoga and other classes are regularly offered. I, personally, helped myself to a private class on my own—to the sound of the waves. Maythe brought a calm demeanor to her communications with us, was extremely accessible and responded promptly to our questions about the house and the area. She even helped us set up a surf lesson for our son! We highly recommend this house for families and others interested in a peaceful setting.
