Jeff, Dan, and their local manager, Daniel Duran, made this lovely, jungle apartment the highlight of our Costa Rica Adventure. The spacious Casa Grande was immaculate, beautiful, superbly appointed, and with just the right mix of amenities and charm for this lush tropical region. We couldn't be happier and unconditionally recommend this unexcelled hospitality in a heartbeat! HOT TIP: If Daniel is still the property manager when you visit, take him out for a beer and learn his backstory. You won't be sorry! His blend of European, African and Latin American charm will knock your socks off!

Our stay was wonderful! Rodrigo was so helpful with check in and with suggestions regarding restaurants and places to visit! The garden are was very nice and we enjoyed visits from lizards, toucans and agoutis! We walked to the nearby supermarket for breakfast items. We did have a rental car which made it much easier to visit local beaches and restaurants. There are so many choices for great food and places to see nearby!! We have already recommended this home to friends! Thank you for your hospitality!

Amazing place! Communication as well as check in were swift and efficient with a care taker in the village. The house is beautifully set in an amazing garden with a pond. We did our own little night safaris and saw all kinds of wonderful creatures, among which the red eyed tree frog! The place is clean and comfortable, the shower is lovely, the towels and linen are new and clean. The kitchen is very handy and well equipped. We spent our evenings on the porch, listening to the jungle. There is a very good shop just a few minutes walk away where you can rent bicycles. Manzanillo park is a half hour on the bike away (we spotted a three toed sloth!). In playa chiquita most of the restaurants were closed (it is low season, we knew that), so we would cycle to puerto viejo (also about 20/25 minutes). I contacted Daniel and Jeff very last minute but nothing was too much trouble for them and the care taker, also Daniel, was always on hand to help with whatever. Amazing place, book this when you are in Playa Chiquita!

Well appointed home in fantastic location. Very close to the best local grocery store and two beach access points. Hosts provided prompt, clear and kind communication and helped us arrange for transportation and were even open to us bringing our small dogs.

We love Puerto Viejo so much and plan on returning very soon! The people are truly Pura Vida, especially our hosts! The house has a nice hot shower, the internet is OK but works best on the terrace. The kitchen has everything you need to make food and the fans keep the place nice and cool. We didn't meet the hosts, but Daniel who looks after the place is a great guy, who helps out and is a Pura Vida sort of guy! Loads of cool bugs and animals around too! The area itself, there is a restaurant called Diwo nearby, literally two mins. It is amazing and Ivan the host is a great guy, who makes great food. We thought that Playa Chiquita was the best of the beaches, it is quiet, has loads of spots that you can make your own private beach. Uva is lovely too. Just don't walk with bare on Negra!!! Get bikes at the local supermarket!

The home was wonderful. We woke up to sloths in the trees just outside every morning. The kitchen is well equipped and the reading room is adorable. There are many fans throughout the home providing a great breeze. I would be happy living here. And the other Daniel that checked us in was a great help!

Our journey south was meant to be a temporary escape from the dark and rainy Canadian West Coast, in search of sunshine and warmth. After a brief search for a potential destination and keeping in mind that we desired nothing of an all inclusive resort, we quickly realized that one can have it all... in Costa Rica (Rich Coast)! As so many times before, we chose the off-beaten path...the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica was awaiting to be discovered! What a great surprise: not only did we get some rays and experienced the vibrant culture, but it all came with the most spectacular backdrop. The surroundings were magical! Lush green rain-forest filled with beautiful flowers, and wildlife otherwise only known to us from colourful atlases. There was a positive energy which we just could not get away from. After this first impression, a spark led to a dream and the dream became a plan...With the much appreciated help and support from our friends and families our new journey started in Dec 2009! Come join us and enjoy pure living...

Pura Vida!

Jeff and Daniel
