During morning yoga and meditation we ask all guests to maintain a low noise level, as well after 8 pm. We hope our guests will utilize the eco-friendly features of the house, as outlined in the renter's manual. This includes recycling, maintaining reasonable noise levels and respecting the natural environment.
We had a great time staying at Rachel's round house. It was great to be able to retreat from the town to the relaxing jungle. The house is beautiful, the garden is really cool, and each room was large and clean. Rachel and the visiting yoga instructor were very kind, knowledgeable, great conversationalists!
There is a large kitchen, beautiful patio, and each bedroom has its own little porch. Hammocks abound!
We did have a few issues - like the washing machine not working and running out of drinking water, but Rachel tried her best to resolve this during the busy Santa Semana.
I would definitely recommend staying here!
Absolutely amazing. My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights just wishing it could be longer. It was relaxing and laid back. We didn't have any issues, everyone was helpful and welcoming. The morning was the most peaceful, waking up to the sounds of birds, and the wind. It's also in walking distance to the beach and small, but delicious food options. We're glad we got to experience staying at the roundhouse.
First of all, the house is amazing. I went with my mom, sister, and two neces. We had an incredible experience. DIFFERENT from anything we have tried before. The hole experience starts early in the morning with the sound of the monkeys, birds and all the nature. The location is perfect, calm and quiet and only 5-10 minutes walk from Puerto Viejo. Fully equipted in the kitchen. It has simple bedrooms, but thats not a bad thing at all. Perfect for doing yoga, have a peacefull stay and enjoy being in touch with nature.
The house is ecofriendly. You can notice this in the house itself, the house trash system, and everything. You can learn a lot on how to have a more susteinable home.
Rachel, the host, is great! She has everything in the house organized and explained.
NOTE: the house is for a relaxing stay. No noise after 8pm.
What a fantastic experience. My mother and I went to Puerto Viejo for three nights (wished it were so much longer) and had a delightful time in the roundhouse. The kitchen was great to cook in, there were many hammocks to rest in, wild birds and butterflies, and waking up at 3am to howler monkeys.... it was all so delightful.
"J" (sp) was a great host while we were there and we attended one of her yoga sessions on the porch and took her advice on beaches/attractions to visit nearby... all of them great suggestions.
If I head back to Puerto Viejo again, which I hope to... I'll definitely see if there is space to stay here again.
We had a great stay at the Roundhouse! The kitchen is well stocked, the bed was really comfortable and it's very close to some amazing beaches!
We stayed in Rachel's Eco-friendly roundhouse for about four days. In that time we explored the beaches, food, and saw plenty of wildlife. I loved having so many hammocks to relax in! I felt the location of the roundhouse was perfect, close enough to town , but far enough so that you did not have to be a part of the excitement of the main drag if you did not want to be.
J was wonderful at answering any questions I had and always very helpful. Thanks for the yoga class J!
The house was lovely and I think if I were ever to build a house in Costa Rica I would need to get the name of Rachel's architect: ).
The house was beautiful and perfectly tucked back at the end of the road so there was no noise except the sounds of the jungle. Even so, the location was very close to town and easily bikeable. We had one of Rachel's meals when we first got in and it was both delicious and healthy. We also sat in on the beginner yoga class and after doing yoga on a deck in the jungle, going to class will never be the same. I also enjoyed a holistic consultation with Rachel that was very informative and insightful. Rachel is the real deal. If we are in Puerto Viejo again, we will definitely pay a return visit to the roundhouse. Quick shout out to the adorable puppies at the house, be nice to each other!

I am from the United States and have lived in Costa Rica for fifteen years. I love to work with medicine plants and be outdoors in the rainforest.
