Alex and Yanira
We were greeted by Yani and fresh coconut drinks which was very nice. The place is bigger than we expected and it would be absolutely fantastic to bring some friendly couple with us. The house is in excellent location, outside of town (just short walk along Playa Negra, though). At night you are going to hear sounds of jungle which is something very special if you (like me) come from a country where there are no jungles. Alex is a cheerful guy, who gave us great advice whenever we asked him, because he obviously knows a lot about a place in which he lives. The only thing I didn't like about the place, was the mattress which was just too firm for me, but that is a matter of personal preference.
Great place to stay. Some bugs in the place but Alex helped us right away ... And to be honest it is a jungle ! Clean house. Air condition is extra charge which would have been helpful when booking initially to have it all on one bill. Felt very safe and alex was very welcoming and helped us each day. Nice shower and bathroom . However the shower water was a little chilly but was okay. There was no TV but wifi worked very well!! Nice area close to the beach...cute setup.
The house is very comfortable, my favorite part was the upstairs porch! It's conveniently located, 2-min walk to Playa Negra and 5-min walk to Puerto Viejo (along the beach is the best route). The kitchen is comfortable and functioning, if you do plan to cook, you might want to bring basic spices with you (salt/pepper), as the kitchen has basic set of cooking wares and utensils, but no condiments, oils or spices (probably due to tropical climate, those things just won't store well). There is a grocery store within about 5-7 min walk, where you can find everything.
Alex, the host, was super accommodating, friendly and helpful, most mornings greeting us with fresh coconuts (something that we'll miss!). While in town do rent bikes and ride to Manzanillo (around 1.5 hr one way without stopping, but allow more time if you want to check out the beaches along the way, it's definitely a one-day trip back and forth). I went with a female friend and both of us felt very safe walking/biking around the area.
Alex was a great host! I arrived early and he allowed me to leave my bags until the house was ready. Upon departure, he waited with me and I got to learn a lot about Puerto Viejo. He was very warm and welcoming and the house was absolutely perfect! The second level sitting area was great. You can hear the ocean from the house and the jungle atmosphere is great! It's a beautiful place to wake up to and fall asleep in. I couldn't be happier with our choice to stay there!
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Convenient location on the edge of town, only 5 minute walk. Alex was very friendly, giving us coconuts and a pineapple. Unfortunately the beds were really uncomfortable.
Fantastic welcome including an awesome icy cool mocktail… very warm and easy
Great home, clean and close to black beach and town… lovely couple
Can't wait to return!
Highly recommend this spot!!
