The space


Peaceful Jungle Setting, surrounded by nature...
Only 4 rooms - no more than 8 people to share the public space. The rooms are SMALL but comfortable. Breakfast is not provided.

At Hidden Jungle Beach House we have ROOMS FOR SINGLES and COUPLES. (A couple is any two people who want to share a bed. There is ONLY ONE BED PER ROOM.) THIS PAGE IS THE LISTING FOR COUPLES. The other Hidden Jungle Beach House is the listing for singles.

Immerse yourself in nature in this tranquil, jungle hide-away, just a 3 minute walk to a breathtaking beach, Playa Negra. Enjoy peace and quiet, yet have access with a 5 minute walk, to the charming town of Puerto Viejo, - cute shops, great restaurants and and a lively night life.

Hidden Jungle Beach House: where nature lovers can socialize around the kitchen table or enjoy solitude in a quiet spot on a hammock.
You fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake to the chattering of a million tropical birds.

Hidden Jungle Beach House is a typical Caribbean style wooden house with three levels. The kitchen is on the first floor. The bedrooms are on the second. And the third floor is my room, I'm the owner, Lisa, and I live here, too.

The first floor kitchen is spacious and open, with jungle all around. The grocery store is only a short jaunt away so you can buy what you need and cook it here. The SHARED BATHROOM with a hot shower is on the first floor.

The second floor of Hidden Jungle Beach House has four SMALL bedrooms and a living room with cable TV. It also has a SHARED BATHROOM with a sink and a toilet. The bedrooms are simple. Three bedrooms have double beds and one has a single. Each room has a place to hang your clothes and shelves, desk or table, screened windows and a fan, along with clean sheets and towels.

We are a simple place: The windows have screens; NO AIR CONDITIONING just fans and jungle breezes. We love animals. We have two German shepherds (and a cat) to guard the house and entertain the guests. Smoking cigarettes is allowed only outdoors in the yard.

Hidden Jungle Beach House is truly Puerto Viejo’s hidden treasure. You’ll love it’s relaxed and friendly vibes. You’ll sleep cozy and comfortable in the arms of mother nature. You’ll wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys, cute little geckos and a million different kinds of colorful birds.

Helpful suggestions on where to go and what to do are provided by your delightful host, me! I have lived on Costa Rica’s Caribbean for 8 years and can give you lots of good advice.

If you are looking for a simple, economical place to stay in the quiet tranquility of the jungle but not far from all the activity, Hidden Jungle Beach House is the place for you.

Interaction with guests

I am Lisa, the owner, and I live here in Hidden Jungle Beach House with my husband, Christian. We are most always around - accessible for questions or help.

I'm a writer with a website telling you all about my experiences living in Costa Rica for seven years. I'll give you all the details on your options to get here from the airport, along with photos and instructions. I can book your transportation and I also offer personal guide service. Once you have made your reservation, Airbnb will allow me to give you the link to my website.

When you arrive I'll show you around the house. And I am happy to give guidance or recommendations and help you find what you need.

Other things to note

IF YOU HAVE A CAR: If you are coming by car, please let me know at the time you make your reservation. Parking is limited so I have to make sure there is space for you. Thanks!

DOGS: We have one cat and two German Shepherd guard dogs. They are very sweet. The dogs do not bite. But they do bark to protect the property from intruders. When you arrive the dogs and cat will greet you as part of the family. Most all of my guests love our pets and the pets love the guests as well. Our dogs are not allowed inside the house. They stay in the yard and sleep on the ground floor outdoor patio. The patio is a a central part of our place, with chairs and a hammock for our guests. And most are happy to share the space with the dogs. We bathe and brush the dogs regularly and do our best to keep the patio clean. Our dogs are well trained and essential for the security or our property. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE DOGS, OUR HOME MAY NOT BE THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOUR VISIT.

NOISE: We are in the jungle yet 1 minute from the beach and only 5 minutes from the town of Puerto Viejo. You'll always hear the waves. And now and then, especially on weekends and holidays you may hear the sounds of the village coming through the jungle - music from the bars and some traffic on the road.

COUPLES: Our place is small and the four rooms are close together. You will have complete visual/physical privacy but you may not have the audio privacy that some couples prefer. Noise at the level of quiet normal conversation is not heard by others in the next room but our walls are not soundproof.

There are NO LAUNDRY FACILITIES available here, however there are lines to hang wet clothes. And there is laundry service available nearby.

Lisa was extremely helpful with planning our trip to Puerto Viejo. She recommended some great restaurants and things to do in the area. Highly recommend renting bikes from her and riding to Punta Uva to snorkel and kayak the river. Room was small but it worked for the 5 nights we stayed. Would recommend staying in the guest house on the property for longer stays as it seemed more spacious and private. However the main house is very well laid out and organized to accommodate multiple people staying at one time which is nice. The complimentary bandaids came in handy, thank you Lisa! Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Thanks for the nice review, Diana. I'm happy I could help you enjoy your visit. Yes, the rooms are a bit small, as I state in the Airbnb descriptions. But we provide lots of space around the house for socializing and relaxation, as well. And yes, the Private Cottage is more spacious and private. We try to provide everything we can for the needs of each different individual. We do our best!

It's a pleasant stay along the edge of the forest. There's a brewery nearby and it's only a short walk to town. Lisa was very knowledgeable and helpful with activities and sites around Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area :)

We had a wonderful stay at Lisa and Christian's. They are great hosts and their house is perfect for people who want to enjoy nature and the sounds of the jungle without being too far from the center. Everything is super clean and the kitchen is very well equipped. We travelled 5 weeks in Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua and their property was one of the best we stayed at.

Response from Lisa And Christian:
Thanks so much for the very nice review, Lucille. For you to say that you have been traveling throughout Central America and found our place to be one of the best really makes me happy. And also I'm pleased to hear you say that everything is super clean because we work very hard to make it that way. Myself and my husband do everything personally. We do all the cleaning and maintenance ourselves. It is gratifying to hear that we have been doing a good job. Thank you!

We had a fantastic time at Lisa's an Christian's place. It is just beautiful surrounded by nature. Lisa provided so much information which made it easy for us to get the most out of it. Christian showed us the animals and and let us open a pipa by ourselves. :D We left happy and defenetly want to come back. Thank u guys so much :)

Response from Lisa And Christian:
Thanks for the very nice review, Caro. We enjoyed showing you all about our jungle life. And just to let others know, in case they don't - a pipa is a coconut which has coconut water. Christian showed you how to use the machete and cut the coconut open by yourself. Now you are a real jungle woman, Caro!

The Hidden Jungle Beach House is the perfect location to get away from it all, yet still stay connected near the town. Lisa takes safety into her top priority, and assuring that all her guests are enjoying themselves. She was very communicative with the expectations that she has for guests, and everything in her house has a purpose. There are two dogs on the property, and they are so friendly. It added to the experience. The rooms were decently sized, and the joint bathroom situation wasn't bad at all. It took care of everything you needed. I felt like I was home with my mom! ☺️ She truly cares for everyone and makes sure that everyone has a nice stay! I will be returning!

Lisa And Christian User Profile

I’m Lisa Valencia, a writer and Costa Rica guide who has lived in Costa Rica’s Caribbean since 2007. I opened Hidden Jungle Beach House in 2011, running my guest house alone for 3 years. Then Cristian Montenegro came into my life and has been working with me here for the past three years. We got married in November 2016. So now at our place you have two hosts - one North American and one Nicaragua/Costa Rican.

We both believe in following our dreams and living life to the absolute fullest. And always encourage others to do the same. Many of our guests come here looking for more than a vacation. They use their time here in nature, away from the stress of the "civilized" world to ponder and reflect on their choices in life. Some go back to their lives with renewed energy and enthusiasm. Some discover a new way to live. And some don't go back at all!

Cristian and I are thankful, grateful and appreciative of every aspect of our life here - including our guests. Cristian will show you sloths and iguanas in the trees around the property. He'll tell you stories about the little agoutis who come eat our compost and the time we had a snake for a neighbor. I'll share the story of my discovery of a new life in Costa Rica. And I look forward to hearing your story and encouraging your Costa Rica dreams to come true!
