Surfing Beach House - Casa Galim: is in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica’s province of Limon, bordered by the Talamanca
Mountains. This stunning place of amazing pristine beaches will inspire
your Caribbean dreams. The peaceful shoreline is a great place for sun
worshipers. Surfers love the waves. Spectacular sea views abound with
colorful sunrises and sunsets. Scenic jungle of tropical coconut trees and
rich green vegetation harbors wildlife, exotic birds and thrilling waterfalls.
Our Surfing beach houses are located 45 meters (50 yards) from the sea! in Playa Negra, one of the best Surfing Point!!!
Take in the clean fresh air while you enjoy wandering among the fruit
filled coconut trees on our wide shore. This lovely haven is tranquil and
secluded yet only 3.5 km (2 miles) from the center of Puerto Viejo, where
you will find fabulous cuisine and entertaining nightlife.
In our cozy cabinas you’ll fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves
and awaken to chirping birds, howling monkeys and the sounds of the
tropical jungle. Wildlife surrounds you - iguanas, geckos and lizards,
toucans, sloths, monkeys and the famous Blue Morpho butterfly.
In the turtle season (summer and fall) huge leatherback turtles lay their
eggs right on our beach.
This is a two story building with separate accommodations on the
ground floor and the top floor.
Each unit has a private entrance and can sleep up to 6 people.
There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two twin
beds. The rooms have large windows - overlooking the sea, the creek,
and the forest. There is a Comfortable living room with a convertible sofa
which can also sleep two people. The kitchen is equipped with utensils,
a gas stove and a refrigerator.
Large balconies overlooking the sea, hammocks, hot water, garden showers
and free WI-FI and a BBQ in the garden, to grill your catch of the
day - these are just some of the amenities we offer. You’ll enjoy the
pleasant sea breeze, which helps cool the house. And you’ll be
mesmerized by the sweeping views from wide balconies, including a
southern view of Puerto Viejo and a view to the north of Cahuita National
Park (which is only 800 meters - half a mile - away).

Yosi and Esther are truly remarkable people. Casa Galim is a paradise. The beach is isolated and feels other worldly. The house is a 15 minute bike ride from the busy town of Puetyo Viejo which was exactly what we were looking for. Their dog Motek is a sweetheart and acted as my escort and night watchwoman while I slept soundly on the front deck every night. I cannot thank the both of you enough for an amazing experience! Your hospitality and the amazing conversations we had will always be with me. I hope to stay at Casa Galim again!
As a chef and restaurant owner, I definitely understand the importance of pleasing your guests and exceeding their expectations. Yosi and Esther achieved both of these things with their awesome place, Casa Galim, as well as their help in making our trip so enjoyable. We can't wait to go back, and can't express enough our endorsement of Casa Galim!
We had a very pleasant stay at Casa Galim. Located in the jungle and steps from the beach: it was exactly what we were looking for. A 10-15min bike ride into Porto Viejo, it was just the right amount of seclusion and access to town.
Yosi and Esther were wonderful hosts. They helped us find reliable taxi drivers and filled us on in the best things to do and places to eat in the area. The premises was clean and well kept and I'll never forget those delicious ripe bananas Yosi and Esther provided for us.
I whole-heartedly recommend staying at Casa Galim.
Thank you Yosi and Esther!
A great cabin just steps from the sand. Fantastic location just minutes walk from the main road to PV, provides tranquility and quiet to allow for inner peace.
The beach is fantastic as hardly anyone is in the area.
Yosi and Esther are wonderful people with calming energy. Thanks.
Yosi and Ester were amazing hosts. They are so laidback and engrossed in the beach life culture. Yosi gave us amazing recommendations to visit the Jaguar Sanctuary over the Sloth Sanctuary, which was spot on since you can see sloth at both but the Jaguar Sanctuary rehabilitates all local wildlife. We got to freaking hold baby howler monkeys.
The home that they built is so well made and esthetically pleasing. You can't stay closer to the beach in the Puerta Viejo area. The place is quiet and very tranquil. We definitely would stay here again.
You should have the red snapper and jerk chicken at Maxi's restaurant down in Manzanillo. Also buy a coconut outside the entrance to Cahuita National Park and walk onto Playa Blanco and find bliss.
The perfect place for true nature lovers, right by the beach.
The house in neat and convenient.
Yosi and Esther are the best hosts, bot helpful and discreet.
Our stay with Yosi and Esther was great. They are wonderful people - warm and helpful - we felt very welcomed:)
The house is beautiful and very well equipped and the patio facing the sea is marvelous. On the patio super comfortable hammocks to relax.
We would definitely like to come back.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
