The Space

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!

  • Anja and Mau are delightful, I had a wonderful time with them. Their house is a typical jungle cabin perfectly situated between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. I highly recommend staying with them in their inviting home when visiting Costa Rica's caribbean coast.

  • Great stay! Anja was extremely helpful setting up our travel to and from puerto Viejo and was always there to give us advice or directions. The house is truly in the jungle and it is a very unique and cool experience. Great option for backpackers if you want to avoid a hostel.

  • We loved staying with Anja and Mau; we really can't say enough good things about our trip with them. They were fantastic hosts and a pleasure to spend time with. The cabin felt like something out of a movie in a beautiful jungle setting across the street from the beach. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

  • Viajé sola a Puerto Viejo y me alojé en casa de Anja y Mau. Tengo que decir que la casa es maravillosa, al igual que los anfitriones. La localización y el acceso es muy bueno¡ Espero poder volver a repetir pronto¡¡

  • We had the pleasure of staying at Monkey Mood for our honeymoon in early May. Anja and Mau were welcoming, kind and helpful throughout our stay! Before we set foot in Costa Rica, Anja helped us plan our complete honeymoon, from setting up our transportation and all excursions. She was responsive and incredibly knowledgable!We had a wonderful time exploring the nearby beach and community via beach cruisers. A few of our favorite experiences were tasting tropical fruits at the Saturday Farmer's Market, Punta Uva beach, and the Jaguar Rescue Center! We loved staying at their home with their friendly dogs. The room was clean and comfortable. We loved the open windows and hearing the soothing sounds of the jungle. It was a fantastic experience!

    I simply loved the place! Surrounded by the beauty, charme and sounds of the jungle and just a stonethrow from the beach, perfect!
    You couldn't feel more welcome and homy than with these superfriendly relaxed and helpful hosts. I had a wonderful time there and would always go back!!

  • This place was amazing! I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't been already said in other reviews. My friends and I stayed with Anja for 2 nights and it was my favorite place during our entire trip. The cabin is close to the beach and an easy bike ride into town. The room itself is big enough for 3 people, and plenty of room to lounge on the porch.

    Anja and her husband were extremely welcoming and helpful. They gave us great suggestions on where to eat and helped us rent bikes while we were there. Anja also set up our rafting trip and our shuttle back to San Jose. Their dogs are awesome and hung out with us on the porch at night. Anja even arranged to get a cake for one of my friend's birthday the first night we were there!!

  • 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!
