Your own private oasis in puerto viejo!
Welcome to Tropical Oasis, your own private paradise. Situated just outside of the heart of Puerto Viejo, Tropical Oasis is nestled among a beautiful 1.5 acre garden creating a sensation of being immersed in the jungle while still being close to town. This beautiful two story house is ideal for couples, families, or small groups. Tropical Oasis is the perfect combination of rugged, natural beauty with modern amenities.
The second story of Tropical Oasis is inspired by Thai design. Made entirely of Mountain Almendro, a beautiful dark wood native to Costa Rica, the house has an open air design with screened windows. Two large balconies surround the house providing ample space for lounging about in the hammocks, watching birds, sloths, and butterflies in the well maintained garden. The house features a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, a walk-in closet, and a large safe that doubles as a dry storage space for all your electronics. The bathroom has a bathtub and shower with hot water. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, blender, stove, and oven providing everything you need to enjoy meals. The living room area can also be used as another sleeping space with more couches and beds. Tropical Oasis features high-speed internet, Sky TV, a landline telephone, and washer and dryer.
Tropical Oasis is set just off the main road south of Puerto Viejo. A salt water swimming pool with an outdoor patio and BBQ space add to the magic of this house. From the back balcony a floating walkway connects to a meditation or yoga hut creating a space for you to calmly relax and enjoy the sounds of the jungle. A variety of birds including toucans, parrots, and oropendulas spend their mornings and evenings in the gardens of Tropical Oasis. Sloths can also be seen in the trees above the pool. If you ever do feel the need to leave this tranquil setting, restaurants, bars, and amenities are all close by.
The owner of Tropical Oasis lives downstairs and is around to provide information and help as needed. Two friendly dogs also live on the property. A covered car port is available for guests who arrive with rental cars.
Tropical Oasis is the perfect location for those wishing to experience the natural beauty of Costa Rica while still being close to town. The setting is remarkably gorgeous with gardens like you’ve never seen before, and the house itself is comfortable, fully furnished, and designed to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to welcoming you to Tropical Oasis!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 day stay. The house had everything we needed, the location was excellent, the property was beautiful, and the pool was amazing! Amelie was easy to work with and responded timely to all inquiries. We enjoyed getting to know the home owner and consider him a new friend. The gardener was also wonderful, and we enjoyed his interactions with us and being able to practice our spanish. He checked in with us every day during the week and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again!
We spent one week in the house, and had a great time. The house is in walkingdistance from the town and near rocking j's so with the Sound of Music you still feel the town.
There were some few things with the kitchen we recommend the owner to upgrade. We were there with two kids, but could not let them run around alone in the garden alone because one of the Dogs didnt like kids. There were plenty of place in the house, and no problems with the laundry.
The house was wonderful and in an excellent part of town. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Napping on the hammocks as the wildlife is the garden ran around was unbelievable. The pool was perfect after biking around to all the beautiful beaches. Would love to stay again.
Amelie was responsive to our communications and organized a smooth arrival. The location was close to everything you want to see and do in this sleepy beach town. The home was beautiful, clean, and welcoming. The garden was lush and full of wildlife, which we enjoyed while eating "al fresco" on the back porch. It was easy to cook in the kitchen, and the saltwater pool was clean and convenient. We had no problems with bugs or critters. The English-speaking owners were living on site (in a separate downstairs unit), and while they were completely unobtrusive, they did make themselves available to answer our questions and share recommendations. We were able to park our rented Toyota Rav-4 in the yard, and felt very safe in this gated paradise. We hope stay here again someday and are happy to recommend this treasure to anyone looking for a temporary home in Puerto Viejo.
Amelie meet us across the street from the home and was very helpful and friendly. The home was clean and as pictured. The owners do live downstairs but we really liked that especially for the first time there. They are super nice and you really do not even notice them unless you want to visit with them. A little noise from the road and dogs barking but worth it to be so close to town. Beautiful grounds and I do recommend this place and hostess.
The property was nice but too close to town & bars for the tranquility we were expecting. You could always hear music (email hidden) next door! The grounds were beautiful but a little overgrown so little sunshine on the pool. Still very much having the pool on site because ocean was rough during our stay. House was beautiful but needs a little maintenance than the photos appear. Hosts were very helpful & discreet even though they were on site which we did not expect. Lots to do & we loved the "non tourist" feel of the area. We recommend you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle with full insurance!!!
the house and the owners were fabulous. Far better than we expected and we will re visit soon..... Thanks
