Charming, rustic wood room with real jungle feel in typical Caribbean residency of Costa Rican - German couple (32 & 33). We are located between Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva, just 200 mts. away 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 away from the house. Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo are an easy bike ride away. Bikes can be rented from our neighbours for 6$ per day.
The room is independently located on the ground floor, relatively small but cozy with two huge (glass-less!) windows with unobstructed view of the jungle, one double and one single bed, 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 benches as well as a punching bag and a workout bench for some excercise.
We live on the upper floor of the house and you are invited to share our kitchen and our spacious balcony all throughout the day. Shared bathroom with stunning jungle views and refreshing cold water on lower level! Laundry service (6 dollars per load), Puerto Viejo pickup (6 dollars).
Our guests shouldn't have any problems with dogs (3) or cats (1)!
We are no all-inclusive commercial Bed & Breakfast, just residents who'd like to share their home with friendly travellers. We want you to feel comfortable 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 6 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 really can't say enough good things about Anja, Mau and their home in the jungle. Flat out it was an awesome experience and they are great people who we are now happy to call friends :-) The location is amazing, the room is very spacious and clean and the arrangements of the shared bathroom and kitchen were very easy and accommodating. We stayed here for over 2 wks and we never once had an issue that would keep us from returning or recommending others to stay. Anja and Mau are great people, very easy going, always willing to help, genuinely nice, friendly and honest. The house is situated perfectly in the jungle and your close enough to everything but far enough away to feel removed from the "hustle and bustle" of the tourism in the area. Just a very short walk (like 3-4 minutes) from the beautiful beaches of Punta Uva and a nice 20-25 minute bike ride from Puerto Viejo or Manzanillo. Anja was great with pre-trip communication answering our questions, giving advice and helping us set up transportation from San Jose to PV. She also booked an amazing rafting trip (anyone going to Costa Rica should take the rafting trip, highly recommended) for us at the end of our stay and although this is how many help to make a living for themselves, she never pressured us to book trips through her or got upset that we didn't, she simply offered to help if we wanted to do any excursions which was great! Both Anja and Mau made us feel right at home and comfortable for our entire stay and we greatly appreciated that ;) They were both very informative and usually available and willing to answer any questions. Mau took us on a "guided" hike through the property that we both enjoyed tremendously and if you stay here maybe you will get to see the property like we did. My wife and I would highly recommend staying here and we will most definitely be back and looking forward to staying with Anja and Mau again. The value exceeded the price and the location was pretty much unbeatable. I don't want to forget their 3 super cool dogs who always made us feel safe at night and were always there to great us when we came and went. The dogs even escorted us to the beach quite a few times ;) We will miss Anja, Mau and the dogs considerably. Thanks guys for a great stay!
Die Jungle-Cabina ist der Hit! Absolutes Dschungel-Feeling, die Hütte steht mitten im Urwald. Sie ist fensterlos, so dass man die Urwaldgeräusche pur miterlebt. Wer Angst hat macht die hölzernen Fensterläden zu. Oder vertraut auf die Hunde, die immer anschlagen, wenn ein Tier in die Nähe kommt. Was sie aber nicht wirklich tun, da sie menschenscheu sind (die Urwald-Tiere).
Auch Anja und Mau sind super nett, hilfsbereit und cool drauf, lassen einen in der Küche früh morgens schon brutzeln, auch wenn da noch einer im Bett schläft ;)
Und der nahegelegene Traumstrand, türkis mit Palmen, lässt jede Werbung blass erscheinen.
Anja's place was amazing. Beautiful and perfectly situated. I recommend it whole-heartedly! Anja is fantastic and very generously shares her kitchen and balcony upstairs. Definitely the place to go if you're in the Puerto Viejo vicinity.
Ein wirklich unvergesslicher Urlaub.Meine Erwartungen wurden bei weiten (website hidden) ist erst ein paar Tage her aber ich habe schon wieder Sehnsucht nach Punta Uva.
Danke für die schöne Zeit und hoffe das man sich bald wieder sieht.
Liebe Grüße Torsten
Wir waren im November mit unserem 3-jährigen Sohn bei Anja und Mao zu Gast und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Beiden sind hervorragende Gastgeber und haben uns bereits vor unserer Anreise sowie während unseres Aufenthalts stets gut beraten. Wir können nur jedem, der abseits der 'ausgetretenen Pfade' Urlaub machen will, einen Aufenthalt bei Anja und Mao empfehlen! Urlaub für die Seele!!! Danke, Anja und Mao!
Anja was so sweet and helpful before and during our stay. I always felt like she was available to talk to and ask questions while we were staying there. Her place is rustic and beautiful. It was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. The jungle is right outside the windows, which have wood shutters that can be closed. We brought a flashlight which wound up being super helpful getting to Anjas place at night. Her husband and dogs were just as sweet as Anja, and I would happily stay with her again! It was a unique experience to live like a true Tico.
Der Aufenthalt bei Anja und Mauricio war echt ein Erlebnis! Die beiden sind wirklich super nette Leute! Die Cabina ist echt toll! Obwohl es nur ca. 200 m zum Strand sind, ist man hier wirklich mitten im Dschungel! Brüll- und Kapuzineräffchen, Kolibris und viele, viele andere exotische Tiere sind direkt vor der Haustür! Ganz besonderes Highlight ist, dass die Fenster offen sind - d.h. es gibt keine Scheiben. Überraschenderweise hat man direkt im Zimmer dennoch nur sehr, sehr wenige tierische Besucher und vom Moskitonetz geschützt, schläft es sich hier ganz wunderbar! Leider war ich nur zwei Nächte hier... Beim nächsten Mal bleibe ich sicherlich länger! Ganz lieben Dank noch einmal an Mauricio, der an einem der beiden Abende frische Riesenlangusten für uns gekocht hat! Ein absoluter Traum!! :-) Ich kann diesen Ort und seine Gastgeber (inkl. der drei zauberhaften Hunde) nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen! Bis bald!
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay with Anja and Mao. The place was incredible! We awoke to monkeys in the trees outside our window, the place was clean and beautiful, and our hosts went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The were terrific hosts, always eager to help and always making us feel welcome. We can't recommend this place highly enough. It was fantastic!
We really enjoyed our stay with Anja and Mao. When we arrived they unfortunately couldn't be there for a few days due to someone in their families health being poor. However this was no problem at all. We had the place to ourselves for the first few days. The place is kept nice and clean. There is a charismatic cleaning lady who comes once a week. Saw lots of wildlife including monkeys as we sat and had breakfast. Anja and Mao have 3 dogs. We really loved them. They became our friends too. Quite often showing us the way to things. I can't fault my stay there. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. There are bikes to hire for $5 a day. Which i'd recommend using if you would like to see the other towns nearby.
Direkt zu Anfang wir hatten eine Super tolle zeit bei Anja und Mao. Es ist alles wie beschrieben wenn nicht sogar noch schöner. Wir haben das typisch costa-ricanische Holzhaus geliebt mitten im Jungle, der Natur und nahe am Strand. Bereits vor unserer Anreise hat Anja uns bei vielen Problemen geholfen. Zumal wir zwei Alleine mit dem Mietwagen von San José nach Punta Uva fahren wollten und vorab schon einige Bedenken hatten, doch auch mit zwei Frauen alleine war alles Super und sicher.
Wir hoffen sehr das wir es irgendwann noch mal schaffen hier hin zu kommen, 5 tage waren einfach zu kurz und wir empfehlen es jedem der die Natur liebt oder einfach mal aus dem normalen 08/15 Tourismus flüchten möchte.
