About this listing
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

Park (which is only 800 meters - half a mile - away).
