Interaction with Guests
Houses are run by a young english/spanish speaking family living in one of the 3 houses on the property, which will be happy to provide you with any help or information required.
Houses are conveniently located on the main road of Cocles Beach, one block from the beach through a jungle trail, one block on the main road from a fully equipped supermarket, and surrounded by a variety of international cafe´s and restaurants in walking distance.
The town is very bike friendly, with bike rentals a block away from the houses. Either the center of Puerto Viejo, or neighbouring beaches Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva are all within a 10 to 15 min bike ride. The center of town is just a cheap taxi away (4 usd), and there is also a public bus service going up and down the main road from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo every couple of hours.
No pets are allowed. Additional overnight guests must be reported to the owners. Other than that, just basic neighbourly good manners.
Adriana was lovely - totally available, friendly, and helpful. She gave us great recommendations on restaurants and for a bike rental shop. The house is very conveniently located, walking or biking distance to anywhere you want to go. It was very clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed to make simple meals. Thanks Adriana!
Preciosa casa y precioso lugar. Acogedora, fresca y reservada, es un lugar perfecto para visitar el animado Puerto Viejo y sentirse apartado del mundanal ruido. Lo mejor, la limpieza y la belleza de la casita, que está diseñada con un gran gusto. Lo peor, que es ligeramente sombría y la cocina podría estar más equipada, pero son males menores si lo que buscas es un lugar agradable como base de operaciones. Está, además, justo enfrente de una de las mejores playas de Puerto Viejo, la playa de Cocles, y Adriana y su familia nos trataron excelentemente.
What to say? I guess "meh" covers it. The good parts: the house was clean, the hosts were pleasant, the location is an easy walk to the beach and grocery store. There are no hills to climb.
The disappointing parts: the house is very dark. The beds are extremely hard and the pillows are some weird kind of inflated rubber stuff. There is air conditioning in the master bedroom, but no ventilation as the windows do not open. It would be nice to have a fan in there to keep air moving when you don't want air. On the covered porch You look out on a row of tall plants that screen the other cottage, adding to the closed in feeling. You should know that you are at the intersection of busy Margarita Road and the main road, if traffic noise bothers you.
Finally, the extra charge of $15 per person over 2 people seems high. By the time you add that you could probably get a much nicer place.
Adriana's place in Puerto Viejo was great, very comfortable and close to most attractions and points of interest. Above all, se was of great service, helping us with various things in the city and giving us great advice. I strongly recommend this place to all AirBnB!
Great place. The House location is really nice you can walk to the Cocles beach or drive to other beautiful beaches. Rosa esa really nice and helpful with my group. Also House accomodations are great, really nice place. Hope to visit some other time
Perfect stay at saravaplace!!
Where do we start, we arrived in this beautiful paradise , perfect house, perfect emplacement ( beach, super market,bikes and not to far from town) ! Everything you need and more!
But then there was more, we met the owner's of the house: we did not meet Adriana because she was in San Jose having her baby, her mother and husband were there to take care of everything, and they did a amazing job at it. Rossa and Shailo made us feel at home if not by bringing us the best bananas ever or simply having a chat on our way in and out!
The days that we did not see them we got to miss them! We were supposed to go to Bocas Del Toro but changed our plans, Shailo helped us in finding another good place to stay, since his house was reserved after our stay !
They really made us feel at home away from home!
Wishing you both a beautiful healthy baby, and Rossa when we come next time we will stop and say hello in San Jose!
Will definitely be back to see our new friends
Till next time

My family and I loved staying at this place. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. This was or first time to Puerto Viejo and the location of the cabin is quite perfect. We did have some It's a little bit outside of town, along the main road.
The kitchenette had everything we needed to cook a meal, which we only did once because the restaurants and food in town is great. We spent time on the porch reading, laying in he hammocks and listening to the howler monkeys at times. Our hosts, Adriana's husband, Shiloh and mother were very welcoming and engaged. We had trouble figuring out how to get be hot water from the shower and Shiloh came over to show us how to use it.
