The Space

Built in 2005 by one of the area's most legendary builders, the two story home features a self-contained downstair's apartment. Fully separate from the owner's habitat upstairs, sharing common views of gardens, but not of each other.
The home features many artistic touches from the broad use of mosaic, bamboo and reclaimed lumber furnishings, as well as memorabilia of the Puerto Viejo fishing history. A hand carved boat hangs in the living area, a relic of day's past, and the beloved piece of "first time" by the owner's friend, Captain Pino.

Guest Access

The downstair's apartment is fully equipped with bed, bath, kitchen, dining and seating areas. There is a jacuzzi hot-tub in the garden area, available at additional cost and advance notice to prepare. There is also on-sight laundry services available at a nominal charge. Bikes can be rented nearby. Guests of the house receive a discount on tours booked with Wahoo Fishing & Tours.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the top floor of the two story home. We are available to you at your request, though we are often away from the property during the day running our fishing, dolphin, snorkeling boat or attending to our bar/restaurant in Puerto Viejo.

The Neighborhood

Located in the diverse community of Playa Chiquita, this home is walking distance to excellent dining, watering holes, and a chocolate lounge. Whether it's sunning, snorkeling, horse-back riding, or just relaxing in the hammock, you're never more than a five minute walk to a multitude of activities... or to none and no-one at all.

Getting Around

The public bus passes every hour daily from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo/reverse. Bicycles are available for rent nearby.
