The space

++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 hot water shower on lower level! Laundry service (5 USD per load only washing, 8 USD per load washing and drying), Puerto Viejo pickup (8 USD).

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!

Everybody who identifies with above description is welcome at our jungle home, unfortunately the house is not wheel-chair-accessible right now though, sorry!

Guest access

We have wifi, kitchen, drinking water for bottle refill and coffee in the mornings available to our guests.

The neighborhood

We are located right between Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva just 700 mts. from the small community of Playa Chiquita (with supermarket, some restaurants and a bar) and 200 mts to one of the most beautiful beaches of the area (Punta Uva). Puerto Viejo is about 7 km away and can be reached with an easy 30-minute bike ride or by public bus, that runs every two hours and stops just 100 mts. from the house. The nature reserve Gandoca-Manzanillo is about 6 km away and the popular Jaguar Rescue Center just 2 km.

Getting around

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)

Anja and Mau were excellent hosts, and the house was really cool! You are right in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by wildlife, which we really enjoyed. The house was exactly as described and very comfortable. Also close to several beautiful beaches and not too far from the shops and restaurants. Highly recommend!

Very nice spot. Just know that you're saying in the JUNGLE , if you don't mind a few mosquitos bites and you love nature , this is the ideal spot. Very open space. There's a small restaurant near by , the manzanillo beach is about 20 minutes bike ride away, Puerto veijo about 30 mins , nice area. If you ever been to Jamaica, think Ocho rios. Lovely spot.

Loved this quaint jungle location. Beach is very close! Bikes were not available on child sizes but otherwise good location away from towns. Great bread and a few restaurants nearby. Brought ear plugs as I'm a light sleeper, best item brought! It's amazing all the noises and animals in the jungle, day and night! Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful stay! The place was exactly as described, a simple and beautiful jungle paradise. Very close to the beaches and a short bike ride into town. Perfect location and everything we needed to be comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
