About this listing

The space

We have recently remodeled four wide rooms , all with private bath, hot water and air conditioned.
One room is only for two people with a queen bed, another one has queen bed and a single bed, and two rooms have queen bed and a two stairs bed, for an occupancy of four people.
we don't have TV sets and telephone in the rooms, but there is free Wi-Fi in the rooms and in the restaurant, Il Giardino en la Playa!!, that is facing the Ocean front.
The furniture are simple but functional, the bed of good quality and the cleaning and hygiene are absolutely of first importance for us, both for the rooms and for the preparation of our legendary recipes.
We are located at 100 metres East from the Public Pier, directly on the fine sand Beach, where sea turtles come to feed on the weeds of the bottom, and where is possible to watch a lot of sea bird and Dolphins.
In the Mangroves in the back of the Hotel lives a group of Capucine Monkeys that, often come to eat the fruit of the restaurant while Scarlet macaws come to feed on the Almond trees of the front , on the beach.
The bus stop is at 800-900 metres from us, the ferry boat from Golfito is docking at the Public pier, at 150 metres, and the road from S. Jose' is now almost perfect.
for staying of any length, is possible to study some kind of plan that include breakfast, lunch and dinner, in any combination, up to offer sandwiches made with our fresh made bread to the people that want to hike of do some sea tour, all things that we can help to organize directly, using our net or safe and professional collaborators, including too flights reservation and car renting.

Other things to note

In the last year we had some Guest ( probably the 2%) that reported issue with “ bugs”... as we clearly explain in our description, our rooms are facing a natural Mangrove Swamp , where many species of Birds, Monkeys, Crocodiles, Fish, Crabs, Snakes, and many other animals live their lives.... and often, offer to the Guests the possibility to catch great pictures of them, directly from the window or from the same (URL HIDDEN) we believe that a Person with a little knowledge of tropical environment, or at least some common sense, can easily understand that it is impossible to make a neat separation between “ good animals” and “ bad animals” ... we can’t spray with venoms the Mangrove Swamp for to kill flies, ants, termites, or any other “ bug”...and it is possible that some of these “ bad animals” will try to enter in the building, and even if we placed a mesh at the end of the internal corridor for to maintain the monkeys outside, sometime, some of them appear inside.... so, we are strongly inviting anybody that has some phobia for Insects, Monkeys, Birds, Snakes, Crocodiles, Fish, Raccoons, Parrots, etc. etc., to look for a less “ wild” accommodation.... we decided to live in a Natural place, in front of the Beach, with a Mangrove in the backyard, for to enjoy the contact with nature, and we are sharing our Home, with guests that are looking for the same thing, or, at least, understand the whole picture.....ah...and the Friday and Saturday night, there is a bar, at 300 metres from us, that plays loud tropical music until late night....just in case coming here for to sleep early in the weekend evening is the main interest......

Simple, conveniently located restaurant with Airbnb rooms behind the restaurant; restaurant is right across the street from the dock/port in Puerto Jimenez. Was a handy location when my friend and I went to the bar up the street for dancing; when I wanted to go home before she was ready to leave, I simply walked to my place and felt safe, even at 12:30 at night. Was pleased to learn that room came with breakfast; greatly appreciated the super-delicious fresh fruit, in particular. Cecilia was kind enough to sew a button on my shorts before I left in the morning. Extra dining tables across the street from the restaurant give you a view of the bay and easy access to swimming after you finish eating, though the beach there is not all that clean. Overall, a very good value with good people.
