About this listing
$120 / 2br - Beautiful local architect designed 2 bedroom beach front house in Punta Uva
Peaceful and quiet independent two story home, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living and dining room. Satellite TV. Private property with amazing tropical garden.
2 minute walk to either Punta Uva or Playa Chiquita, two of the most beautiful, peaceful beaches in the Caribbean. Located 15min south of downtown Puerto Viejo.
The house is beautiful, so close to the beaches (lots of palm trees, good for swimming and never too crowded) and quietly located. Mauricio as well as Jose and his family were always friendly. We really enjoyed our time here, thank you!
Relaxing place next to the beaches! Mauricio is always easy to contact and José the caretaker lives next door and is always helpful and very kind. Kitchen is well equiped and they provide you towels etc. Surrounded by the rainforest to survey the animals! We enjoyed our stay there.
Jolie maison a deux pas de la plage et a 10mn en voiture de puerto viejo. Tres Bien equipee et spacieuse. Maison ouverte donc linconvenient cest lhumidité et les insectes mais lavantage cest de pouvoir se reveiller avec les toucans ;) petite remarque la 2e sdb est a lexterieur au rdc. Nous avons ete tres bien accueillis par le voisin qui etait tres sympa et nous a presenté ses paresseux :) pour un séjour ds cette région je recommanderais certainement la maison de Mauricio qui a su etre reactif et a lecoute.
I highly recommend Mauricio's house. There's a view of the Caribbean Sea which is a 30 second walk. The caretaker, Jose, is a delight. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. Mauricio is extremely easy to reach should you have any questions. The beach is as beautiful as it's reputation would have it, and it's not crowded even in peak tourist season. (I was there around Xmas) There's a grocery store a short walk away, and the restaurant an even shorter walk away has great fish and "Casado" meals. There's an outdoor shower at the bottom of the stairs which really helps keep the sand out of the house. And best of all, Jose is a master at spotting sloths in the trees. There was a mommy and baby sloth in one short tree right in front of the house. And there were more sloths in the trees just across the road at Jose's house. And while you're there, don't miss the chocolate museum where you make your own chocolate. Your hands will drip in cacao oil as you knead your chocolate. And the sloth sanctuary and jaguar rescue center are both not to be missed. And also, don't leave without having fish at Lazlo's. Just ask around. There's no sign. He doesn't need one. You'll have fish prepared, "May way" as Lazlo will tell you. Put your trust in him; you won't be disappointed. Getting back to the house, washer/dryer, wifi, complete kitchen, bathroom upstairs and down, "jungle" view out back, quiet neighborhood, close to Puerto Viejo, and a nice sea breeze that passes right into the house.
The house was open for outside critters to get in, which we were not quite expecting. there was plenty of space, and the house is in a great location. We loved that it was right next to the beach. We also enjoyed that it was far enough from the relativly busy area of Puerto Viejo. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here.
The house was indeed beautiful. Great (email hidden)uricio was a lovely host. Our family had a wonderful time there!
Awesome little house pretty much right on the beach of Punta Uva. The location is key here, we checked out all the beaches in the area and this was our favorite for peace / relaxtion / swimming / and long walks. It is a quiet and special place, and we're happy we stayed there. The house is comfortable and rustic, and everything is open-air. The gardens were lovely and it just felt a safe place to spend our trip to the Caribbean Coast. Thanks Mauricio!
