We didn't have the chance to meet Amelie as she was in San Jose during our stay. The house was very spacious and comfortable. The possibility to let the outside in was very pleasant. The kitchen was well equipped. Squirrels, Aguti, Humming birds, monkeys, sloth, little frogs came all to visit the yard or the close trees. The wonderful Cocles Beach was in 5 minutes walk. We really enjoyed staying in this house and have a private quite place for ourselves and yet be so close to everything.
Amelie was very sweet and helpful, the house was amazing and had everything we needed. Our two year old loved the fact that he could be inside and outside. The location was perfect close to everything but also private. Great spot!
Eine Unterkunft,die einen perfekten Aufenthalt im verschlafenen Puerto Viejo ermöglicht!
Die Unterkunft ist sehr ruhig gelegen und bietet alles was man für einen entspannten Urlaub benötigt!
Bis ins Zentrum von Puerto Viejo benötigt man ca. 3-5 Minuten mit dem Fahrrad und bis zum nächsten und Strand 3-5 Minuten zu Fuß!
Die Unterkunft ist ebenso sehr sauber und wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
Amelie ist eine perfekte Gastgeberin und steht stets für Fragen offen!
Amelie came to meet us shortly after we arrived and provided a guided tour of the accommodation and information about the area. The house met our expectations, the yard was beautiful , we saw lots of wildlife from our porch, and the beach was indeed just a short walk away. We had a minor problem with the Wi-Fi reception which was resolved promptly by Amelie.
Amelie was a great host - friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. The house is as advertised with no exaggerations about wildlife in reviews. There are many beaches each different from the next with good snorkeling - saw many species of fish, etc.
The water at the house is from a well so sometimes it is good to stock up before you come.
I really liked this place. An overall great airbnb experience.
La maison est carrément superbe et très bien située, soit à côté de la plage Cocles et à moins de 2 km de Puerto Viejo. Pour ceux qui aiment les animaux, la maison est un lieu propice à l’observation d'une multitude d'espèce comme des singes et des paresseux. Par contre, pource qui est des fournitures de la. Maison, on sent que les locations ont usées le matériel et que quelques trucs devraient être remplacés. Nous n'avons pas eu de chance avec l'Internet pendant notre séjour de 3 semaines, carrément intermittent et lent lorsque présent. nous sommes restés 3 semaines avec une petite fille de 4 ans et avons utilisé les vélos pour nous déplacer, la maison est fort agréable et nous nous sommes sentis en sécurité tout de suite.
The house is great; the shutter doors are awesome and the location is perfect.
