The space

Your own private beachfront, your own private jungle, a most peaceful and romantic setting. The upper level (1200 sq. ft.) living space is in a rainforest Wildlife Refuge on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. The house is nestled in 2 1/2 acres of tall forest canopy. The rental space is the entire second floor of our 2-story house, and has a master bedroom with a 4-poster netted full-size bed. The second bedroom/study also has a full-size netted bed. A large, covered deck, with a built-in full kitchen, faces the ocean. It is a short one minute walk to the beach and a 15-minute walk on the beach to the town of Manzanillo. Caretakers live on the lower level with a completely separate entrance. Wi fi is available at the house. If you need anything--from a bike to a coconut--just ask Henry, our caretaker.

Walk across the front yard to a beautiful sandy beach; stroll along the path across the walking bridge through the private canopied forest; or read, write, talk, or just relax on the deck or inside the house. During the day the fresh ocean breezes caress you. At night forest breezes drift down to cool you. A lovely sandy beach fronts the property, and our private 2 ½ acre rainforest with huge trees envelops the house. Dinner on the deck at night in the beautifully flowered jungle garden is a truly unique experience. See our website for photos and information.

The wide sandy beach leads directly to the town so there is easy walking access to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. To go further, catch the public bus to Puerto Viejo, other towns, or even San Jose. There is a lot to see and do--great chocolate tours, rainforest hikes, animal rescue center, fishing, boating, swimming, and more.

Getting to the Caribbean coast is not a problem. If you will be arriving in San Jose we can help make your travel from SJO airport to our place easy, pleasant, and very inexpensive.

Unieke locatie, de mooiste van onze reis. Er hangt ook een prijskaartje aan. Caretakers zijn zeer zorgzaam en vriendelijk. De zee zo vlak 'voor de deur' is een ware belevenis, vooral met windkracht 10 en meer dan 48 uur regen. The room with the view, de kamer zonder wanden geeft …
