The place is beautiful! It looks exactly like the pictures. I'd highly recommend staying here. The communication with Claudine from check-in to checkout was great. I give this place 5/5 stars and two thumbs up!

The house and its location were absolutely amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better stay. The house was located in a quiet area but within walking/biking distance to nearby shops and beaches. Claudine was our point of contact for the trip and she was always available to answer any questions we had - she was such a pleasure to work with. She made sure all of our transportation needs were taken care of. We plan on visiting Puerto Viejo again and will definitely book this house!

Loved our visit! We will definitely plan another trip, except next time we'll stay longer than 1 week. The house is clean, very comfortable and the rolling doors that open the house make it even more incredible. The garden/property area with the wildlife is amazing. Sounds of the various birds and monkeys never got old. Easy walk to the beach, which was beautiful or even a nice bike ride further south to other beautiful beaches. Great food options within walking distance or a quick cab ride. Breakfast of fresh fruit, granola and coffee each day at Caribeans was delicious. Claudine and her concierge assistance was amazing and helped us with tours and our round-trip transport to/from San Jose. She even helped us with restaurant and happy hour recommendations. This home will not disappoint! We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

A beautiful home in a fun neighborhood! Located on a quiet side street, there is alot of stores and restaurants withing walking distance. Amelies home is beautiful! Clean, nice furnishings and decor and all of the basic necessities are there for your use. We stayed here with our 2 kids and would definitely stay again if we come to the area again.

We had a great stay at Amelie's house. So beautiful, and the ability to raise the walls during the day was magical. The rooms were large and spacious. We really enjoyed the nearby beaches (Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva were our favorite and only a short drive away) and the Jaguar rescue center was great place to take our kid as well as see the strong commitment they have to animal rescue. Also, Puerto Viejo is a fun town for restaurants, people watching and yoga. Amelie's house is well located to get to these areas of the Caribbean coast. I would stay there again.

This house is tucked into the jungle a couple of minutes by car outside Puerto Viejo town. The beds are massive but a bit too firm and the house was very clean. Even though there was open ventilation holes in those "garage doors" there was very little insects in the house. Sometimes the sound from a nearby club was annoying at night. You can walk down to the beach but would recommend driving to town at night. There was two bikes available too.
