About this listing
La Casa del Mango is set in a tropical garden with the three floors rising up in wood and glass to rooftop sundecks with views to the Talamancan mountains and the Caribbean sea. Swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen, outside/inside living spaces.
The house is surrounded by nature and guests sleep, lulled by the sound of the waves on Black Beach and awaken to birdsong and the eerie sounds of the howler monkeys. The airy and spacious interior is carefully decorated to be both stylish and comfortable with the outside/inside living and dining areas, allowing guests to relax and find peace and tranquility. The tropical garden is full of color and scent with the dawn and dusk filled with the aroma of the ylang ylang trees. Guests can swing in a hammock on their private balcony, enjoy the ocean and mountain panorama from the sundecks on top of the house, share a massage in the glass sided massage room overlooking treetops, sunbathe poolside or watch iguanas, tree frogs and toucans in the garden.
Guests have access to the pool, sundecks, tropical garden, massage room, fully equipped kitchen, living room with cable TV, inside/outside living and dining areas, parking and laundry service.
Interaction with Guests
A member of staff is in a separate apartment night and day to provide security and assistance. We are always happy to answer guests' questions and to help with reservations and tours. Discretion is assured for guest privacy and comfort.
The house is in the small beach town of Cahuita within a minute's walk of the ocean and is located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood. The town center is a ten minute walk away and the national park is just another 5 minute's from there.
Buses to the other south Caribbean beaches and back to San Jose, can be caught on the main road which is five minutes walk away or from the bus terminal in the town center. Taxis are cheap and readily available.
No smoking in the house. Smoking is permitted on the pool deck only. Loud noise or music are not permitted after 10:00 p.m. No pets are allowed. We ask guests not to wear outside shoes through the house as the wooden floor is quickly damaged. We ask that guests treat the house the same way that would treat their own home.
What can I say about this place that the photos do not already reveal? La Casa Del Mango is an escape you cannot pass up! The private pool, the rooftop views, and the stunning garden all add to the intoxicating feeling of living in the jungle. The open layout allows the cool, refreshing Ocean breezes to pass through the home. It really is a relaxing and therapeutic destination. Sara and her husband Nando are beyond accommodating and were a pleasure to be around! The home is less than a 3 minute walk to the beach, and the little town of Cahuita is about an 8 minute walk. There are plenty of little bars in Cahuita and a number of restaurants if you prefer not to use the kitchen in the home. Puerto Viejo is also about a 20 minute drive from the home with a slightly more bustling environment if you are searching for more noise. I cannot recommend this home enough, especially if your are a group of 8. I look forward to returning to La Casa Del Mango and exploring more of the surrounding activities!
Great place to stay! It is very nice. Great pool for lounging around, and easily walkable to town. Sara and Nando were friendly and had good recommendations on places to go.
About the Host, Sara
Sara and Nando are a British/Costa Rican couple who chose Cahuita as the place to raise their four children and to live a life away from the hustle and bustle of city life. They enjoy beach time with the family and the outdoor life that the south Caribbean offers. We have traveled on different budgets across Europe, north Africa and America, but always look for accommodation that is clean, safe, comfortable and welcoming.
