About this listing
Located in one of the most beautiful and exotic areas of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, Reloj de Arena can accommodate a large family or several couples. The home is in the middle of a lush 2.5+ acre property, which ensures absolute privacy and tranquility. Howler monkeys, toucans, parrots, hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds can be seen daily.
The property has a strategic location: 10 minute car drive to Puerto Viejo (bank, pharmacy, supermarket) or Manzanillo (cozy town with amazing restaurants), and 20 min drive to Cahuita National Park, and it is surrounded by several great restaurants and local shops. The property connects directly with the white sand beach of Punta Uva (1 minute walk through our private trail). Plenty of deck space which faces the river/canal to the north provides an ideal setting for barbecues, relaxing afternoon or just family time.
The property is surrounded by the river on the west, and the main road on the east, with the gazebo/jacuzzi with a BBQ right in front on the way to the beach. Every room has ceiling fans and the house is very well ventilated. In total there are 6 rooms and 5 bathrooms, including a deck overlooking the river. The area is perfect for ecotourism since it is surrounded by lush rainforests; it is a nature lover's paradise!
We greatly appreciate if our guests take good care of the property and let us know about any incidents that may take place during their stay in order to provide proper maintenance.
Suggested extra tip of $3-$6 per night, depending on your satisfaction with the service.

This house is nice. The pictures AR old and mostly of the Cabaña not the home. The property is very beautiful and well kept. Some of the amenities are misrepresented in the initial listing but corrected latter after you here from the host. Luis was very cordial and professional. He checked in during the visit to make sure everything was good with the house.
El lugar es insuperable! No hay palabras para describir la belleza del lugar, esta a pasos de la mejor playa de Puerto Viejo! Manuel nos recibió con sus bellas palabras y poesías, en resumen este es lugar que deben de reservar cuando estén en Costa Rica en el Caribe, PURA VIDA!!!
Well it blew our minds! We had a blast. The house for being in the jungle is very well maintained and everyone is super nice and great. Never even missed tv. It is a long drive from the airport to the house but it's worth it! Renting a car is a plus for sure. It's a private and secure house. Never worried about safety. 3G Internet it ok. It works but if your still trying to stay connected to your work ( I run my own company) you need to buy an unpicked phone and get it before you go. The house Cleanning was amazing and security/house helper was the best ever. Couldn't of found a better place for 10 people. Luis responded to my call ASAP and mad sure everything was perfect! Great 10 out 10
La casa de Luís, Reloj de Arena, es una propiedad bellísima, fuimos con un grupo de 12 amigos y estábamos bastante cómodos, tiene suficientes camas y baños para todos, puede ser un poco caliente pero nada fuera de lo normal, Luis no se encontraba pero dejo como responsable al señor Manuel Cruz, quien no deja nada que desear.
La playa Punta Uva, es una de las mas bellas de la zona y vale la pena visitarla a pesar que esté a 8 km de puerto viejo
Es muy interesante en esta casa que los monos aulladores o congos nos despiertan en la madrugada y le da mejor sensación de jungla al lugar
Great home in an excellent location. Do not expect any luxurys, but is as good as it gets if you are looking for quietness, wildlife and beach. Nice housekeeping too.
I used this place for a yoga retreat for 10 guests. It was a great spot for leading a relaxed yoga retreat for a small group. There was place to do yoga outside and inside when it rained. I was the chef and was so happy to find the kitchen sufficient to cook three meals a day for 12 people. I was am so pleased with my stay and so are the were the guests. The groundskeeper and cleaning staff were excellent! Honestly, it met our needs very well and we are already talking about organizing another retreat next March.
