About this listing
++This place is paradise, but not for everyone, so please read the description carefully, in order to make sure that you will enjoy our home. Thank you!++
Charming, rustic wooden room with real jungle feel in typical Caribbean residency of Costa Rican - German couple (34 & 35). We are located between Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva, in a quiet and beautiful jungle setting just 200 mts. from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area and in walking distance to various local and international restaurants. The next supermarket is about 1 km from the house. Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo are an easy bike ride away (about 6KM each). Bikes can be rented from our neighbours for 6$ per day.
The room is independently located on the ground floor, with two huge (glass-less!) windows (with wooden shutters that can be closed at any time) with unobstructed views of the jungle, one double and one single bed with semi-orthopedic mattresses, mini-fridge for drinks, a desk, 2 chairs and a fan and is the perfect homebase for adventurers, nature lovers, and backpackers, who want to explore this beautiful strip of paradise. In front of the room there is plenty of room to hang out with hammocks and a punching bag for some excercise.
We live on the upper floor of the house and you are invited to share our kitchen and our spacious balcony with us all throughout the day. Shared bathroom with stunning jungle views and refreshing cold water on lower level! Laundry service (5 dollars per load), Puerto Viejo pickup (8 dollars).
Our guests shouldn't have any problems with dogs (3) or cats (1)!
We are not an all-inclusive commercial Bed & Breakfast, just residents who'd like to share their home with friendly travellers. We want you to feel comfortable and at ease in our place but do not offer room service or other luxuries. Breakfast is not included in the price. We are looking for sympathetic, independent people, who would like to look behind the scenes of commercial tourism and learn a little more about the region they are visiting.
We have been living in the area for the last 7 years and are working in tourism, so we can also help you setting up your tours and transportation in the Caribbean and the rest of Costa Rica, just ask us!
We have wifi, kitchen, drinking water for bottle refill and coffee in the mornings available to our guests.
There is public buses regularly passing by about 100 meters from the house to go to Manzanillo, Puerto Viejo or Cahuita. Bikes are definitely the best means of transportation and a perfect way to explore all the little gems of the area. For nights out in Puerto Viejo you can also take a taxi back from town. There is a parking spot on the premises (about 50 meters from the house)
Bring flashlights for walking the trail to the house at night!
Our host Anja made us feel at home right from the start. We arrived a bit later then we thought we would arrive at because the directions werent so clear, in all fareness we were driving at night on roads new to us. The house is right in the jungle with monkeys outside the window. Anja and Mau were inviting and gave lots of tips of things to see, directions of were to find local places and suggestions. If it does rain and it will its definetely gonna be wet. They have three dogs that are quite chill and sweet but they are jungle dogs and they do stink so that might not be for you. The beach is a few meters outside the door, a short walk and you are there. At night you hear many sounds from bugs and animals, it rained quite a bit at night and its quite a beautiful experience. We were able to use the kitchen upstairs quite comfortably and found our way very easy so that was a plus. in the morning Anja would make coffee and you could sit on the balcony staring out into the jungle. We rented a car and had our own parking spot near the entrance, the down side its very muddy to walk from and back. We had a great time staying here, Anja has great energy and we had a good talking, this place would always be an option for me to come back to upon returning.
thanks a lot for your nice review, we are very happy you and Eric enjoyed your stay! I am sorry about stinky dogs and the slightly moldy smell of the room, unfortunately you stayed with us during our rainy season (which was unusually rainy this year) and there is only so much we can do with the open-air setup of the house. We will try to shower the dogs more frequently in the future, but usually do not do so, when its raining so much as they just dont dry and then smell worse! Thanks for your understanding. All the best, Anja
We had such a good time at Anja's place! She and Mao were friendly and very helpful the whole time that we stayed. They also gave us great advices about nice spots in Puerto Viejo and around for the rest of our trip. The beach is like 2 mins walk from the cabana, and we went there for a swim many times, followed by Anja's three nice dogs. As young backpackers, we were happy to share the common spaces with people from the place and talk about la pura vida en costa rica! The only is that make sure you bring clothes that dry easily with you, cause the cabana is in the jungle so, its nearly impossible for your clothes to dry out there. Anyway, I would go again for sure and recommend it to my friends! Peace from Québec! :)
This place is heaven! Anja and Mau will make you feel so welcome in their home they really are perfect hosts. The room itself in rustic but wonderfully in touch with nature. Waking up to the sound of howler monkeys in the trees outside and spotting poison dart frogs and agouti's whilst chilling in a hammock is pure bliss. The house itself is only a few minutes walk away from a secluded beach and it's fun when their three dogs decide to come play on the beach with you. All in all it was a 5* visit at such a reasonable price, don't hesitate and book here if you're visiting this area of Costa Rica!
everything as the description
we loved to stay at this style
anja was a great host
Wir hatten 3 wunderbare Tage in Punta Uva. Die Jungle-Cabina hat alles gehalten was der Name verspricht. Wir werden auf jeden Fall das nächste Mal wiederkommen. Die beiden Gastgeber sind super lieb und haben uns in allen Belangen sehr weiter geholfen.
Anja und ihr Freund waren super Gastgeber, unbeschreiblich hilfsbereit und hilfreich. Die drei Hunde hätten wir am liebsten mit genommen, sie waren tolle Begleiter für den ein oder anderen Spaziergang. Diese Unterkunft muss man besuchen, wenn man an die Karibikküste fährt. Die Fotos lügen nicht und wohnen, vor allem schlafen, im Jungle muss man erlebt haben. Danke für die schöne Zeit.
The best place to be!! ;-)
Haben unsere Costa Rica Rundreise hier begonnen und wollten gar nicht mehr fahren, weshalb wir auch ein paar Tage laenger geblieben sind. Anja und Mao sind herzliche und laessige Gastgeber, die einem mit wertvollen Tips helfen, die jeweilge Reise noch schoener zu gestalten. Das Zimmer mit den riesigen, offenen Fenstern ist ein Traum, um die Jungle-Melodien bei Tag und Nacht hautnah zu erleben. Von Bruellaffen (und frischem Kaffee-Duft :-D ) geweckt zu werden, war ein Traum! Urlaub fuer die Seele.
