  • Great place to relax at the end of the day and listen to nature

  • Kinga’s place is great, in every way! Communication is helpful, friendly and prompt. Lots of excellent local tips and connections. Location and space is great. Highly recommend Kinga’s place!

    Barbara2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Only stayed for 3 nights but would have loved to stay more. Could have easily stayed for a couple weeks.

    Matt2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Such a peaceful little getaway in nature. Super easy check in! Not too far of a walk from downtown but a bike is definitely recommended especially after a long day at the beach. Kinga was so quick to respond to any messages and such a sweet host.

    Alyse2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation in the middle of nature. One should be mobile especially in the evening as an unlit street leads to the property. The view from the terrace of the jungle is fantastic, we could also see some animals.

    Ivo2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Casa Lina! The view of the jungle on the front porch was so beautiful and relaxing. The place was clean and the kitchen had everything you needed. Kinga was very helpful with booking transportation and tours for us. There are bugs but what else do you expect in the jungle. The bug net over the bed protected us well at night. The wifi worked very good for the entire stay. The only negative would be the shower. The water was warm enough but didn’t have much pressure, which wasn’t a huge deal at all. The sounds of the jungle at night while relaxing on the porch or in the hammock were fantastic, as well as being able to have your morning coffee and fruit on the porch in the morning over looking the beautiful jungle and stream that runs through the property. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this to anyone travelling through this area!

    Kristen2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little Gem...Stunning views and abundant wildlife....truly a surreal jungle experience! This property was a great value! Reasonably short walk to the beach with nearby reasturants and market. I would highly recommend to others for sure.

    Ryan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best place where you can stay definately. Helpful hosting, designed apartments, pure nature, close to the beach in affordable price. 100% recommended

    Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limon, Costa Rica

    Casa Musica is a beautiful, authentic jungle home nestled in lush rain forest, where you can relax in a hammock on the porch, listening to parrots and howler monkeys. The beach is a short walk away, where sand and surf await.
    Casa Musica is a beautiful house on a quaint rain forest road. Just a five min. walk to Cocles beach, supermarket, restaurants, bus stop, and shopping. Cocles is a tiny town between Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva. Both of those towns are just a 15 min. bike ride away. The house has two bedrooms, an open concept kitchen and living room, and a large porch with dining table and lounge area . The wood in the house is cut from the property. The bathroom is tiled, with custom made mosaic tub. Detailed and unique accents throughout the house. Monkeys, toucans, parrots, sloths, and other creatures often play in the yard. Butterflies love our front garden and are lovely to watch while sitting on the porch. Fruit is often in season throughout the yard — please help yourself! We have bananas, cacao, papaya, coconuts, and more, plus wild cilantro growing all over (which is so tasty in salsa and guacamole). There is a driveway that fits one vehicle. We have wireless internet and a landline for local calls. The area is safe, but house includes a security box just in case. House is fully equipped with new appliances, hot water in the shower, and fans in the bedrooms. Waterfalls, beaches, zip lining, hiking trails, kayaking, and animal rescue centers (where you can play with monkeys and sloths) are all available within a 20 minute drive of the house. Some of these attractions are only a five minute walk away! Also, please be aware that our listing is for a house, not a hotel. The house locks up completely, but we did design to be open-concept because we like to be integrated with the rain forest. Sometimes, ants come marching through, geckos like to chatter away with you while you're cooking in the kitchen, and hummingbirds sometimes try to join you at the table on the porch. We've recently learned that some people are afraid of these things, so we just want to make sure that you are rain forest friendly before you book.
    Our little road (Calle Berto) is perhaps the most culturally integrated road in this part of the Caribbean. You'll see locals, expats, and tourists chatting jovially in the street, little kids waving as they pass by, and a few friendly local dogs trotting down the road. We really recommend this tour to help you learn the area: https://abnb.me/8olRckruxQ
  • Wow! What an awesome experience. First, the hosts Anna and Chad are amazing people. They were super kind and helpful towards me throughout my stay. As for the the house, it is spectacular! Being raised above ground level and situated with an awesome view, the environment is perfect for a jungle getaway experience. Inside the house was very neat, convenient, and stylish. I honestly was extremely satisfied with everything, and I would highly recommend it. Thank you!

    Ryan2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Punta Cocles and Puerto Viejo thanks to Chad and Anna! They are really kind and helpful, and always answered quickly to messages. The house is amazing! It’s surrounded by the jungle without being too isolated (so not scary or anything), you hear all the wonderful and peaceful noises of the rainforest at night. The house was clean and well equipped (we cooked our Christmas dinner there!). It’s a 10-15min walk to the beach and there is a nice supermarket down the street. The jaguar rescue centre is very close too and I definitely recommend it (no jaguars but lots of rescued animals, really interesting). The Cahuita national park is amazing too but you need to drive there. All in all a lot of great things to do there! One thing to be aware of is that addresses are complicated in Costa Rica! So do not get frustrated if you don’t find the house straight away. Follow the host’s instructions and they will guide you if necessary! I definitely recommend this house, thank you again for everything!

    Diane2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed three nights here. Three adults with two teenagers. The location is great. Chad was helpful and available. We loved the games, and we’ll-stocked kitchen. The howler monkeys just outside the house were so amazing. Comfortable beds, plenty of towels. We felt very secure. Easy walk to Cocles beach. Warm shower.

    Michelle2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jasmine and Wilson’s place really contributed to our experience in Costa Rica. It’s in a good location, walking distance to restaurants and right in the middle of all of the wildlife.

    Bailey2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet, clean, safe place. It has everything you need. Near the beach. We liked it a lot !!

    Tony2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house for four people, big terrace, amazing garden, equipped with anything you may need. Communication worked perfectly, we were also provided with most useful information on taxis, the area... Hope we'll be back some time! Thanks!

    Ines María2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome Place To Stay!!

    Frank2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a perfect stay with my 2 teens. Couldn't ask for a better experience in the middle of Costa Rica's magnificent wilderness and chill way of life. Will definity stay again when we travel to Costa Rica! High recommended!

They are all part of the food chain, most of them are under protection. We are dedicated to protect our environment so we don't use hard chemicals in our property.
  • Our host went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our stay! Was quick to answer and communicate with us. Would highly recommend!

    Paige2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Kinga was incredibly helpful giving instructions for the property and tips for the area. The place is great and the scenery in the garden is lovely. Not far from the beaches or town, and the grocery store is right around the corner. Highly recommend!

    Hamilton2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had an incredible time at Casa Lina! It’s a can’t miss destination on Costa Rica’s east coast, especially for nature-lovers. With Kinga, you get an Airbnb host, a travel agent, and quick customer support office all in one! We never felt led astray by her advice and she was always quick to answer our (many) questions. Thank you Kinga!

    Nick2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful garden. very helpful and thoughtful hosts.

    Ellen2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Location is nice and the garden view is amazing. Would definitely stay here again.

    Alison And Ryan2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the jungle sights and sounds , especially the howler monkeys . Slightly more rustic and less isolated than we expected Bike hire is available at the house . Lovely beaches near by and lots of places to eat . We would recommend a car and mosquito net .

    Sandra2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kinga and her husband, though not on site, were always immediately available to answer any question or provide guidance. They were extremely generous with suggestions about best places to eat and shop, had the total inside scoop on best kayaking, tour, and wildlife excursion companies, and were generally extremely gracious and hospitable. The location could not have been more perfect — absolutely in the jungle (we watched gorgeous multi-colored birds and huge iridescent butterflies flying, and huge iguanas frolicking in the tree canopy and in the creek from the serenity of our porch!) and yet it’s only a five-minute drive from a truly great restaurant and probably the best grocery store in the region. If you stay there, your home-away-from-home will be perfectly appointed, dry and clean and airy, beautifully designed and constructed from local wood — I can’t say enough about how delighted we were to be there.

  • Juan, Sue and Alvaro were great. Sue and Alvaro were very hospitable and were showing us around the property, explaining different plants and animals. Lovely hosts. Beach is beautiful. We visited at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and it had no visitors.

    Zhivka2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay, surrounded by nature. Monkeys on the property wake you & then a few short steps to the beach for morning coffee. There is lots of birds and butterflies right in the yard. Punt Uva is the most amazing beach! It’s hard to go anywhere else! Caretakers are wonderful people & took care of anything we asked for right away. This is a self service type of property but they are there and available for any needs or questions. Juan answered my messages immediately, would very much recommend this property & we hope to stay again!

    Amy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This was more than perfect. The house have everything you need for a perfect time in Costa Rica. The wild life surounding the house and the beach just in front made our first trip in Punta uva a dream come true. All the positive thing in the comment are true.

    Didier2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Punta Juancita. The reviews were good so we had high expectations and we weren't disappointed. We loved the upstairs sitting area and found the kitchen to be well equipped. The caretakers were friendly and helpful. The location is great, right across from the beach. We heard the howler monkeys in the yard. So cool!

    Brenda2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Juan’s place is amazing! If you are looking for an adventure or just some RR, Juan’s jungle house is ideal! It’s a beautiful, funky open air living house! It has beautiful art and cool furnishings! The location is out of this world ! The ocean is right there- a quick walk down the driveway and is spectacular! We were overjoyed with the visits by the sloths and the howler monkeys & the beautiful butterflies! The caretakers Sue and Alvero were so kind and wonderful! They bright us fresh flower bouquets and coconuts! Thank you so much Juan, Sue and Alvero! Our 3 week stay was an absolute blast! We will be back for sure!

    Mary Jo2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot with great amenities.. Made us feel at home the whole trip.

    Natasha2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This home is literally like paradise. Such a beautiful home, tropical surroundings, a 2 minute walk to the beach and a friendly housekeeper. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment! Thanks Juan!

    Clair2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic beach house! Punta Juancito is far enough out on the point that it feels relatively secluded, but it's just a few minutes walk down the beach to a little bar and a short drive to the store, Puerto Viejo, etc. Make some coffee and then carry it barefoot out to the beach every morning, but be sure to mind the ant highways that criss-cross the yard. Fascinating leaf cutters! The variety of wildlife that you can observe just sitting on the deck is only rivaled by a visit to Cahuita NP, which is just 30-40 minutes away. From the hammock on the second level we watched toucans, agouti, a two-fingered sloth, parrots, hummingbirds, and a resident troop of howler monkeys.

  • More beautiful than in the photos We felt very comfortable and very warm and friendly hostess

    Ralph2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Verde is a lovely place to stay, close to everything you need! The property was as advertised...clean, comfortable and nicely situated to access everything you need for a great stay within a short walk. Annie is a lovely person and was very quick to address any question which was very helpful. We were also very impressed with her property manager Nando and housekeeper Astrid. All said, our month at Casa Verde was a big success!

    Dan2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Annie is super quick to respond! Place is super easy to find but there’s no sign - Waze will place you right in front of it and you won’t even know it. We got there, had to go over 2 doors down to get Nando - he basically showed us the master bedroom and bathroom - not super friendly seemed like he just wanted to get back to what he was doing. House had all the amenities needed. Gated for your vehicle! A/C works great. Hot water.

    Delia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house, quite close to the center of Cahuita and very close to playa Negra. We had a great stay and were made to feel very welcome. Thank you for the special attention (beach towels available).

    Herve2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. Highly recommend it

    Samuel2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Annie was very responsive to any questions and concerns we had. She had great tips about what to do around the area and who to contact. The home is located in an awesome location and was very close to the beach!

    Carole2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were with our child (16 months) in Annie's house. The location of the house is quiet, yet central. There are grocery stores nearby that are within walking distance, but are not recommended if you want to take care of yourself. Many foods have expired or even spoiled. Approximately 10 km further there are many shops that you should use. (e.g. Pali) We would recommend the house and would book it again ourselves.

    Nikolaus2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had no idea what to expect in traveling to Cahuita but Annie made our vacation outstanding. The house has everything you would need for your stay, the beach is a stones throw away, and her prompt and thorough communication made everything easy. We went to the National Park, snorkeling, the Jaguar Rescue Center, and took a bus trip into Puerto Viejo for the day. I would recommend all of those! The people in Cahuita were really friendly, we totally felt safe walking into town at night, and had great local food. I would love to go back.

    Johnathan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend this accommodation. Beautiful place, clean and excellent hospitality.

    Eric2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Unbelievable! Wonderful place! This place is just a little difficult to find because it is tucked in to the jungle. There are paths that lead into the trees at the end of the parking lot. Just find the path to your hut. Nice quiet place to enjoy. I did happen to see quite a bit of wildlife there as well!

    Lucas2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Puerto Viejo

    Daniel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A fun place to stay within the heart of Playa Cocles. The bedroom is cosy and features a large bed. The bathroom is small, but fine for an intimate couple. The swing door between bed and bathroom offers no privacy which may not be for everyone but was fine for us. The hot water shower could be updated, the shower head unlike anything we've seen before. The garden is indeed a jungle and separates the next door villa but it doesn't offer much privacy. You can hear your neighbor sneeze! Unsuitable for loud talkers, quiet is the key here. Personally we prefer a sunnier spot, but still a restful, pretty place for a few nights stay.

    Gabrielle2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We only stay one night but it was Perfect. Nice little house in the wild with everything you need to have a perfect time. 5 minutes of walk from the beach and lots of restaurant in the area. If you like nature, calm, relax time and don't need a 5 stars hotel, this is the perfect place for you. Host a 100% there for you if you need them. Pura vida!!

  • The Jungalow was perfect and provided everything we needed. Eric was very welcoming and gave us tips of what to do in the area of Puerto Viejo. The Jungalow is surrounded by nature and a few meters from the street - it is very quiet if you don't count the beautiful sounds of the nature! All in all we had a perfect time!

  • We wanted a place close to the good vibes of the area and wanted to get the jungle feeling and we hit the jackpot with this place. Laura and Eric are magical and made us feel very welcome and allowed us to feel like we own the place . The rental is placed in between the main road with the beach , restaurants, markets , bike rentals, anything u may want or need within walking distance. The home is surrounded by the jungle (very beautiful views inside and out) very simple design but exotic feeling. Im already knowing that if i come back to visit i have a great spot to stay.

  • Tania's villa provided the perfect vacation accommodations for us. Plenty of comfortable space, beauty all around, and adding the experience of seeing the jungle animals right there in the "back yard" every day made this all we could have asked for and more. The open concept of the building to the pool and jungle was so unique and special. We had total privacy, yet we knew that Tania was just up the hill and a phone message away if we needed anything. We would go back in a heartbeat. If you plan to cook just be aware that the food prep tools are minimal so I wouldn't plan anything too extravagant. I would actually pack a few of my own knives in a checked bag if I go back again just to make things easier. We had a rental car and feel that it's a necessity if you want to be out and about much. I think that you could get a taxi to pick you up if needed though. The property is on a dirt road that is fairly rough so bicycles aren't ideal. The beach is walkable, but the town of Puerto Viejo and all that it offers would really be too far to walk to every day. We have been telling everyone we know about this place and how amazing it was. If you are considering it, just do it!

    Kim2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tania's place was a haven for relaxation and for enjoying the beautiful jungle and wildlife from the wonderful, private patio! We loved our experience at Villa Kasha! What a treat to see and hear the birds, monkeys, and night noises! It was nice to be off the beaten path and in a secluded location, yet also be able to get to restaurants and beaches in minutes. Punta Uva beach is so beautiful! What a memorable week for us! Also we so enjoyed all the fresh fruit in the area and there is a blender to make fresh fruit smoothies!

    David2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tania was over and above helpful with any request we had; from where to rent bikes to exchanging our currency for us she was accommodating. The facility was extremely private, secure, beautiful, clean and full of exotic wildlife it will by far be an unforgettable vacation. Tips for travellers to this location Make sure you are fit to ride a bike off road as the trip down the mountain to get to the main road is rough terrain. Besides that make sure you love beach, surf, good food and don’t forget to visit Brighton at Tasty Waves cafe!!! Thank you Tania we will see you again soon!!! Sarah and James

    Sarah2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay over new year at villas kasha. Tania was a great host, and despite me not knowing much spanish, she still managed to give us lots of information at check in. The property is in an amazing location, just 10 minutes walk from the beach but in the middle of jungle. We saw a sloth, turtles, birds and insects all in the garden! The pool was great to cool off in in the evening and to hear the sounds of the animals at night. If you can, wake up and go and see the sunrise at cocles beach. It was beautiful. A very nice stay!!!

    Rachael2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tanias place is one of the most stylish and private Villas we have stayed in, in Costa Rica. The house is beautiful, in great condition and situated so you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle, but still close to restaurants, shops and all of the 'chilled' atmosphere in the nearby towns. Furthermore, Tania is a great host. Fast response time, helps with local arrangements and always respects your privacy when in the Villa or the Pool.

    Kasper2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Tania's place is gorgeous, with plenty of room and lots of extra little touches. We enjoyed fresh fruit and appreciated the use of the beach gear. Great house within easy distance of everything in the area!

    Tracy2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in amazing Airbnb places all over the world and this might just be the best yet! The whole wall opened up to an amazing real jungle experience with Sloths, Tucans, musical frogs and Agouti right off our deck! You cannot even imagine how incredible it is to wake up and be able to witness this wildlife right from bed! Tania was an incredible super host! We will absolutely return!

  • This place was exactly as I thought it would be... perfect. Amy quickly answered my many emails and provided lots of suggestions. There was a small brewery next door which I felt safe walking to alone and I loved the beach! So beautiful. I highly recommend staying here!

    Jill2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Amys place changed my experience of Costa Rica. She provides such a safe and welcoming space for travellers and is full of advice and knowledge. The house has so much character and everything you need for your stay.

    Kerri2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house close to the beach with lovely host 😊 not soundproof, so you hear other guests and nature, but I expected that. Overall, great and cute place

    Lina2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amy’s place was great. From the moment I arrived I loved the vibe! Amy was so welcoming and friendly (so were the dogs) and I felt at ease straight away. I was traveling alone and it was a great place to be, I met another solo traveler while I was there who was great to hang out with. It is in a great location for getting into town, and you can hire a bike from Amy to get around. It’s the perfect way to explore the area. Great value for money, but be aware that it’s basic accommodation if you’re looking for something very luxurious then it’s probably not for you. It was perfect for me though, a hot shower, comfortable room and awesome host. What more could you want??

    Holly2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Amy's was amazing ! The location was perfect. Close to everything. You can walk or bike down the main road thru town to visit many restaurants, the Jaguar rescue center, and at the end of the road is manzanillo Beach which is one of the most peaceful areas. The shower was big and clean the kitchen area was clean and well-stocked. my bad was a little stiff but for the price you can't beat it!

    Marsha2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • The location is excellent, only about 10 minutes walk from the center and two from the nearest beach. The kitchen is very well equipped, of a very good size and all very tidy so that each guest has their space to put things. Amy is very pretty and Jack and family (who also help the house) have excellent attention. The spaces of the room are very small (room and bathroom) and there is not much privacy since the walls are very thin wood, for this reason the price is probably a bit high. But everything else is more than enough to spend an excellent stay for one or a few days

    Pablo2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amy is is really nice and very accommodating. I enjoyed my stay in Puerto Viejo.

  • Aurelio and Tiberio were two really nice and helpful hosts. The house is beautiful: sleeping in the jungle, one step away from the beach and the town center, gives you the opportunity to experience an adventure without sacrificing comfort. Hot water, perfect wi-fi. We also had a sloth in the garden and green black dot frogs! Parking is inside and you can leave your car and walk around the village. Really nice experience, to remember! The house is a comfortable base for visiting Cahuita and its park, the surrounding beaches and Manzanillo.

  • Apartment in a very quiet, pleasant place, in a beautiful natural environment with all the benefits. Ideal to rest and leave the hustle and bustle of Puerto Viejo aside. The hosts very friendly and diligent. 100% recommended

    Marc2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful, surrounded by amazing nature. If you are looking for a little more remoteness or to be more alone, it is not so appropriate, however nobody breaks the privacy and that is excellent.

    Francini2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • A very relaxed place outside the noise of the Puerto Viejo party, I loved to rest

  • What an amazing place! Clean, comfortable, close to everything, a discount on coffee and amazing baked goods downstairs in Luciano’s bakery. What more could you ask for? Our two boys loved the upstairs loft bedroom, the kitchen had everything needed, and all the spaces were comfy and cozy. We highly recommend staying here!

    Jamie2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely perfect place to start our Costa Rican vacation! We didn’t do much in the way of planning transportation, so you can imagine our excitement when upon arriving by bus, we learned that the place was a mere 10 minute walk away! When we arrived we went to the bakery and were welcomed and walked up to the apartment. As others have noted, the beach is right across the street, as is one of the best surf breaks in Puerto Viejo. You can easily walk into town to the supermarket, local clothing/Costa Rica shops, restaurants, and street vendors that set up jewelry every night (that we were there at least!!). We rented bikes next door and cruised south to Cocles Beach (Don’t miss the trail! Beautiful walk through enchanting nature right on the beach), as well as Punta Uva beach which also had a path through an enchanting forest. The apartment itself was very clean, had ample towels for beach and shower, and the owners were so so nice! Also, the staff at the bakery is so sweet and was very accommodating when we told them we were staying upstairs (15% off!). I highly recommend this place, especially if you are new to the area. It was SO EASY, and everyone was SO nice!!

    Stephanie2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Milagro2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week at Tommaso place and it was simply amazing. We had exceptional service and the bakery downstairs made our visit unimaginably wonderful. Picas, coffee and deserts were simply amazing. We recommend to anyone and will surely come back ourselves!

    Dalius2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent and unforgiving stay, delicious bakery

    Carlos2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tommaso’s place was perfectly located and having the bakery cafe under was an extra treat. We had an unexpected change problem and couldn’t check in til the next day. Tommaso was quick to respond to my request and made the change simple for us. Would highly recommend staying here if your looking for a good clean place in Puerto Viejo.

    Laurie2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tommaso was a lovely host. He greeted us with great kindness. His place is as beautiful as in the pictures. Clean, comfortable and perfect location. We will most definitely return in the future!

    Carly2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful location close to everything Puerto Viejo has to offer. The beach is right across the street. Close to dozens of restaurants and shops. The apartment was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the apartment had anything that a person could need. To me the best part was the bakery was right downstairs. We had breakfast and lunch there a few times and prices were very reasonable. All in all a wonderful stay. Thanks Tommaso!

  • Jeff's place was sparkling clean, and a fantastic balcony and comfortable beds. The pool outside with the fireplace are amazing!

    Roman2020-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place.... The pool with the gas firepit is the coolest thing to spend the night with friends... Place is very private and close to Puerto Viejo downtown... And Jeff is very nice and will help with anything you need...

    Diego2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • The double-storey house offers enough space for 4 people. With the pool directly in front of the property, you can cool off around the clock, with the sea just a 3-minute walk away. The whole system is very clean and made by Jeff himself. Impressive result. As for the host himself, Jeff is a super cool guy who cares deeply about the guests. He is happy to take his time with questions and tips, present the surroundings and rectify any repairs immediately. The center of Puerto Viejo can be reached by car in just 3 minutes. Great location (by car)

    Miles2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • During the 5 nights we spent at Jeff’s place we saw a sloth, agouti, toucans, hummingbirds and more in the garden. This is jungle living at its most comfortable. We loved the plunge pool, hammocks, and cycling into town to pick up breakfast (delicious croissants crema) from De Gustibus. The kitchen isn’t really set up for cooking but that’s no matter when there are such good restaurants in town. Cahuita tour a must and great beaches there too. Thanks Jeff and Pamela for being such great hosts!

    Mark2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Jeff’s place for five nights with my 21 yo son. Fantastic time. His place is great, close to everything and jeff gave us some great food recommendations. Will absolutely come back again. Thanks for the fantastic hospitality!

    Jonathan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly host, superb garden, cool pool side fireplace and comfortable beds. Loved the design of the place and use of natural materials. 2 Bikes provided quick access to beaches, restaurants and shops. Will definitely be going back!

    Jake2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect! Close to the beach and town and lots of restaurants . If you want to go farther afield you can take the bikes or catch the bus a short walk away. The place is beautiful with lush gardens and a really unique house. Wonderful! You can cook but with restaurants so close and plentiful there isn’t any need. Jeff was a great host. Letting us know what was going on in town and always asking if we needed anything. All in all a great jungle vacation home. Thanks Jeff!

    Helen2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place with a wonderful host . Jeff was so helpful and responsive every time we needed it. He was helpful a.nd interesting and always took care to not be intrusive. The house and property were fabulous. We were an easy walk to the beach and in the middle of true rain forest. Spectacular beaches were an easy drive both north and south of the property. We had a sloth on property that we saw daily! Howler monkeys were our alarm clock every morning and we loved it! The natural surroundings were amazing and Jeff's plantings were stunning! Boy was the swimming pool refreshing after a long hot day. There was no AC but we did not need it because of the breezes from the ocean, very effective fans and a wonderful veranda that made everything comfortable. If you are fussy you may not like this piece of paradise. We loved it! Thanks for sharing jeff!

    Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limon, Costa Rica

    Our bungalow is nestled on the edge of a working cacao Forest. Chocolate is made right here on the property. The ocean view is stunning and many animals like parrots, toucans, sloths, monkeys and iguanas are seen often. Sunrises and moon rises are spectacular!
    Our bungalow is located 50 meters up the ridge from our main guest house. This is accessed via stairs and path. One parking space is available either below at the main house or above the bungalow in an upper area. 4 wheel drive vehicle is needed to get up a few steep parts of our entrance. Property is not wheelchair accessible and therefore not recommended for those with disabilities or small children.
    Our community is a very diverse one. We have many different nationalities as well as the local indigenous and Afro Caribbean locals. This makes this area very unique and like no other in Costa Rica. You can visit local tribal areas and listen to Reggae bands at night. Our international cuisine is found in many restaurants and of course local Caribbean seafood. Surfing, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking , zip line canopy, and many other activities are available.
  • This was honestly one of the nicest places I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in. Jeff was extremely helpful in meeting up with me the afternoon of check in and offering me a ride up. Also provided me with a bike to use which was so nice. The location was unreal, giving me a view like I’ve never seen before. Check in and check out were simple. I would highly recommend staying here. The location is second to none and being able to be fully immersed in the jungle, and to hear the sounds all night was such a great experience

    Chris2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our favorite airbnb in Costa Rica. We enjoyed staying far above the crowd and the forest in this beautiful place with its fantastic views. To have a this wide window front towards the sunrise was just spectacular. Jeff welcomed us personally with complementary coffee and chocolate. We were so happy to be able to stay in this bright, airy and modern cabin and look forward to coming back, the sooner the better.

    Manuel2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was wonderful. The view and feeling of being up in nature is a memorable experience. On the walk up to the Airbnb along the property, you can see sloths and howler monkeys. Wake up to the sounds of nature and a beautiful sunrise over the beaches. To address some possible concerns I had going into it based on earlier reviews, and the result after staying there: 1) it being uphill -> we did not rent a car nor did we ever end up usin a 4wd taxi to get up the hill. We walked up the hill twice a day on average. It was indeed a bit of a workout, however I would rate myself as 'average' shape at best and did not regret doing it this way. In fact I used the walks to replace my normal jogging routine and felt refreshed and healthy throughout the trip. 2) safety -> you can find horror stories of people's negative experiences in puerto viejo with petty crime (this of course will be the case with almost any location in any country you research in the internet!). At this particular location I felt completely safe. Although it is advised against online, myself and my girlfriend walked back to the airbnb after dark several times and never ran into any issues. I am not advising you to do that, I am just reporting back. As far as being in the Arirbnb itself, the location up the hill, and the structure of the building (several locking metal doors, a safe inside), all allowed for complete safety. 3) check-in time -> although I arrived after check-in time, the hosts were exceptionally accommodating by picking us up from nearby, and driving us to get some groceries even though it was already nightime. If you make sure to communicate with them, they will go above and beyond to accommodate your travel schedule if possible. 4) getting around -> we found it easy to walk into down, either along the road or the beach path, and then take taxis or tuk tuks to other activities or locations. The hosts also provided contact information for drivers. 5) the sun facing the airbnb -> some earlier reviews lamented the sun blasted in the floor to ceiling glass and made it too hot in the morning. I did not find this to be the case, it was very gradual and felt cool enough for a few hours in the morning (until maybe 8 am or so). We would usually be out and about by the time it warmed up. However, if this is a concern for you, the hosts provide a screen that you can position to block the sun and allow you to better sleep in. 6) hot water -> some earlier reviews suggested there was possibly a lack of warm water. This was not the case as the shower heater works fine and provides hot water. Perhaps this is because there is a newer heating system than the earlier reviews, or perhaps earlier guests were not using it correctly. Either way I can confirm it works (although you will find yourself choosing a cold shower in the heat of Costa Rica!) Overall, there are many nice places you can stay in Puerto Viejo. But I think this one best combines adventure, nature, comfort, scenery, and attentive hosts. When we chose to stay here, the determining factor was that we were going to a new place, a new country, way different than our home, and we wanted to opt for the most unique and memorable living quarters we could find. This is certainly provides those qualities, in the best of ways.

  • Book it. This place is phenomenal. Great amenities and wonderful hosts. The view is absolutely amazing. Surreal. You are among the Toucans, howler monkeys, orro pendulos...in the forest with a view of the Caribbean that is second to none. It is possible to stay in the heart of the humid tropics and be absolutely comfortable. Jeff was very helpful in helping us find dear friends from our time living and working in Costa Rica 28 years ago! A trip that will be remembered the rest of our lives.

    Rick2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Most beautiful view ever. Located just away from the noise but you can still hear the surf. You can walk down the hill to the beach in less than 10 minutes, some will find it a challenge on the return trip. Jess offered bikes and drives to help us out, otherwise the taxis are inexpensive or you can rent scooters. Jeff went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way. Great value

    Patricia2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you are a nature lover, enjoy enjoying the best that life has to offer, you've come to the right place. A most pleasant view, in the jungle, exceptional tranquility, a modest but very cozy home. The owners are very kind, helpful and warm.

    Bernard2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place to stay right in the heart of the woods of south east Costa Rica. Sitting on the one can see numerous birds and other animals. The property is at the top of a steep slope - walkable but a 4x4 car is required. Be aware that it can be slightly noisy at night with the wind whistling through the insect screens but this is the price for staying high up at the top of the hill in the trees. Also there are no curtains but as the property is not overlooked it isn't a problem. This is a house you stay at to get close to nature - not to escape from it!

    David2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What an experience in the jungle but very close to the beach!! Jeff was the best host ive had so far with airbnb. Very friendly and accommodating. The chocolate tour is a must! And the VIEW, there isnt a better view than here Highly recommend

    Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limon, Costa Rica

    If you are looking for a spacious & comfortable place that is close to both the town and the beach, Terrazza Cafe Viejo is the perfect spot for you! Only a 2 minute walk to Puerto Viejo beach and a variety of amazing restaurants & shops nearby!
    Welcome to Terrazza Cafe Viejo! In the heart of Puerto Viejo, this modern new apartment is the perfect option to enjoy the vibrant town. It is only a 200mts walk to the beach, it's location allows you to easily access tours & activities, like renting a bike and visit other beaches like Cocles, Punta Uva and Manzanillo.
    Downtown Puerto Viejo is a laid back Caribbean town with lots of restaurants, bars, shops and always something happening! You will find some of the best coffee shops & restaurants nearby. On Saturday's we have the local market right across the street, where you can find organic fruits & vegetables, local chocolate and other homemade products.
  • The apartment is right in the heart of Puerto Viejo. Lots of activity goes on outside from midday to late at night. The beach is less than a 5 minute walking distance. Mauricio’s place is exactly as the images show. Very clean, and he provides all the amenities you need. The staircase leading up to the apartment door is very small and tight, so use caution. Overall I had a great time staying there, and would stay there again. No bugs was a plus!

    Sondrina2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • STOP. If you are reading this review it means that you are thinking of staying in the puerto viejo area. My suggestion is stop looking and go book this apartment. I have stayed in many Airbnbs and this is by far the best. The host saw us coming up the street with our suitcases came to greet us, and assisted us to our apartment. He is the best host I have dealt with. The place was upstairs a restaurant on the Main Street but noise was not an issue. The place was clean, AC was great, hot water shower and a full kitchen Overall excellent place go, book it before it’s gone. Just want to say thanks to the host for always been super helpful

    Dave2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic experience with excellent service! Will definitely stay again when I return to puerto viejo!

    Larry2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Maurizio’s place is in a great location for everything you need and want to do. Clean, well air conditioned bedroom’s. Located on the main road in town. They were very helpful and hospitable. Will Recomended family and friends stay here. Restaurant downstairs has great food as well.

    Guy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely incredible. The location was ideal- it was steps from the beach, and a few blocks from groceries, an ATM and all of the restaurants and activities you will need. There is some noise what with being in the center of the town, but would NOT have had it any other way. There was nothing better than feeling like we were a part of the going on’s of the town. Marco made himself available for anything we needed and made us feel right at home. Already thinking of how soon I can book another trip back again!

    Rachel2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and modern apartment in the center of Puerto Viejo. We enjoyed two very nice bedrooms, each with a nice bathroom. The beds were comfortable to sleep on and had nightstands and reading lights. The bathrooms were modern, with great lighting and good counter space. We were in the center of town where we enjoyed many nice restaurants and explored up and down the coast. Maurizio was a great host, responsive and friendly, in particular he helped with the laundry service and it turned out great! The restaurant below the apartment has very good food and gracious staff.

    Regina2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable apartment in a great location, the host replies quickly to any query. Would fully recommend Maurizio's place.

    Minna2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for everyone who is looking forward to stay directly in the heart of Puerto Viejo and close to the Restaurants and the beach. It is super clean and cozy and Maurizio is a lovely host!

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, relax vives. coconut palms, great surf and a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere make Puerto Viejo a favorite among travelers. Formerly a small fishing village, Puerto Viejo has grown rapidly in recent years. Avid surfers, drawn to the famous Salsa Brava waves, have made Puerto Viejo a hotspot on the surfing circuit.
    It is a fairly quiet neighborhood surrounded by nature where few people and animals live in peace.    We are located a few meters from the beautiful beach of black sand very soft sand with crystal that shines and magnetic properties! something nice to enjoy and very unique.
  • Price / performance ratio is absolutely right and for me alone the accommodation was ideal. Due to the architectural style, it is very ring-eared. It is a simple accommodation totally in the countryside and close to the sea as well as close to the town (approx. 10 minutes on foot). The hosts are very warm and personable.

    Nemo2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Alex and Yani’s place is the perfect jungle get away right next to the beach! The place was situated about a five minute walk from town and it was easy to access restaurants and bars. The hosts were so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. 10/10 would recommend.

    Jocelyn2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and quiet room just a 1 minute walk to the beach and 4-5 minute walk into town. Very close to bars, restaurants, shopping (food and otherwise) and MEPE bus terminal. Yani and Alex were very accommodating and made our stay in Puerto Viejo very memorable.

    Connor2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We didn’t stay long at Alexander’s place because we had a very busy weekend and just booked one night, but everything went fine. It was very easy to find with Alexander’s explanations. Close to the local brewerie 😉 that was a plus for us ! When we arrived they offered us drinks and we have been able to borrow some bikes for the afternoon. Very good !!

    Lucile Et Arthur2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Alexander is a a very laid back local and open person with a lot of life experience. Totally authentic and very much loves his plants. We got coffee in the morning. The place is beautiful and Alexander even showed us a sleeping sloth in the palm tree. The place is great and clean, especially for the price. We would have stayed longer but only one night was available. We totally recommend Casa Caribe. Location is great. Ask him for the coins in his garden...

    Jolanta2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Alex and Yani's place is beautiful. Convenient walk to Playa Negra and the town, and there's a two toed sloth living right nearby! Note that if you're a light sleeper the other guests are very audible (especially if you're downstairs). Would stay there again.

    Ian2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home in a beautiful place. Alex and Yani know how to make you feel at home, and give you tips for the area. This was our second time here and will most definitely be back again. Place is very clean, 1 minute walk to Playa Negra, and perfect distance to town were it is quiet still. Couldn’t not recommend this place enough.

    Erik2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Alex was a tremendous host! Went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed as if in our own homes, even going as far making us some delicious drinks with cut fruit. The location is on point. Close to town, and directly across the street from playa negra. The house feels like it’s in the jungle but you can still hear the crashing waves of the ocean from the property. Truly amazing, we even had a little sloth hanging out in the tree next to our room. For the value you will not find a better atmosphere. My partner and I already can’t wait to come back!

  • Initially, I just wanted to stay for one night at Paolas hostel. Because everything has been so nice - Paola herself, the people, the balcony facing the ocean, the good vibes that felt like home in the hostel, I ended up staying a whole week. Gracias por todo! Can recommend for all!

    Maren2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Super welcome by Paola, the accommodation is well equipped and cool! Very good to spend a night in Puerto Viejo.

    Charlotte2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Paola is perhaps the nicest air bnb host I have ever met! The location in town is perfect. This is a great place to stay for either a group or solo traveler. I can't say enough good things about this listing.

    Ahmad2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great appartement, great view, great hospitality, what else?

    Irvyng2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Paola is super nice and thoughtful person. Her place is right in front of the beach once you cross the street. Centrally located in the heart of the beautiful town of Puerto Viejo with plenty of places to eat and party nearby.

    Carlos2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Paola was an excellent host and highly recommend staying in her space. The location and experience was awesome and I would stay there again when I return!

    Comfortable rooms with ceiling fan, private bathroom, fridge, terrace and hammock, and a beautiful ocean view. There is a coffee kitchen in the rancho ( coffee maker, coffee, water heater) for all my guests. Highly recommended the ital. Backery across the street for breackfast and lunch. A few steps to the beach and 5 minutes to walk to the center of Puerto Viejo.
  • Marjam’s place is close to everything but far enough out to still be able to hear the waves. They were also able to accommodate us for an extra night on short notice. There is no AC which we knew when booking and is fairly common in Costa Rica. Would stay again for sure.

    Jeremiah2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as advertised. In town but on the periphery so you're not in the thick of it all. Quiet. The beach is right there and the bakery across the street is awesome.

    Ryan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot right on the beach with friendly staff. A few extra thoughtful touches (snokle gear, coffee, book exchange) made our stay even better. We appreciated the 9pm quiet hours as noise in common areas traveled into room. Ceiling fan worked for us but we were glad nights weren't any hotter...

    Cody2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and comfortable place

    Lucio2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Marjam cabins are very well located, near the center and right in front of the beach. The place is very nice and quiet. Next time I come to Puerto Viejo, I will stay here again

    Catalina2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay! Close to the beach and to the town and perfect for a weekend trip.

    Grace2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here and wish we'd had more than one night. We slept so well listening to the sound of the waves. I was a little concerned that we'd hear road noise, but we didn't. It was nice being able to make coffee tea in the morning. I joined some other guests in some yoga on the beach which was lovely.

    Grace2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

Even better was the on-site support provided by Jayr, who looked after us incredibly and made everything possible through his network. Txs dude, you are the best!

  • Amazing place, close to the beach and in the heart of nature.

    Dan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • When Pigs Fly was everything we hoped it would be: stylish, clean, comfortable, and well-located to take advantage of everything this area has to offer. The gated drive, fenced yard and surrounding vegetation give a sense of security and privacy that make it easy to feel comfortable in this nature-centric house. Jayr was the consummate local host...we couldn’t have asked for more!

    Jeffrey2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is as advertised. Absolutely beautiful and sparkling clean. Very close to the beach and central to all the beaches of puerto viejo. The host was great as well being very responsive and offering suggestions for meals and excursions. I will always remember my trip to PV and this place made it way more magical!

    Kenneth2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

  • We spent 3 nights at Cristina's place and we didn't want to leave this paradise! Great room, well equiped to cook, super clean! swimming pool to be enjoyed and close to everything you Need. Also next to the jungle so you can watch and hear birds, monkeys,... Cristina and her husband were very nice and helpful. We highly recommand staying there!!

    Charlotte2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and clean and very special place. Thank you, Cristina and her caring husband

    Joerg2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a fabulous time in Puerto Viejo and a large part of this is because of Cristina and her family. The accommodations were clean, bright, and comfortable. Cristina and her husband were great hosts and very helpful with providing tips on places to go and restaurants to eat at. Although travel at this time is not very possible, my husband and I highly recommend La Tica y la Gata for anyone’s future travels. You will not be disappointed. The location makes It possible to visit multiple beaches as they are within walking or cycling distance. They have great bikes to rent onsite. We hope to return some day to this beautiful place.

    Rachel2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very, very nice place to rest, very clean, quiet and super friendly. The location is off the road, so quiet and yet you can sometimes hear the sea. Thanks to its central location, you can reach many beautiful places and beautiful beaches. We had a large terrace with benches. From there we could watch toucans, parrots and butterflies. The big bed is fantastic! Thanks to AC, you can sleep well in excessive heat and there are no MOSKITOS! The apartment is cleaned daily (!), There is a pool and the whole area looks free and open. Really fantastic, thanks to Christina and her family.

    Joerg2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to rate 10 stars, but Airbnb won’t let me :D Our stay at la tica y la Gata was perfect. Really beautiful and spacious rooms. Comfortable beds. The whole area with the pool is really cute with lots of small lights during the night. Check in was really easy. Cristina and Juan Carlos were perfect hosts, giving lots of recommendations. Very friendly and super helpful. Even on his birthday he helped fixing our car! Amazing! Thank you again! The apartment is 15 minutes walking to the “city centre” which is no problem, therefore it is also really silent during the night. If we ever return to Costa Rica, we will for sure come here again.

    Sarah2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina and Juan Carlos are so welcoming and friendly. They take great care of their guests! I loved the location of their apartments, close to town but a bit recessed too, so at night I could hear the crickets and during the day songbirds and just the hum of the ocean.

    Darko2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Really a super nice place- like a hotel room. On-site swimming pool, daily room service, village/pool in walkable distance,super nice hosts who are always willing to help out- just book it ! Very recommended.

The only ritual accomodation in Central America I’ve been to that didn’t have roosters waking me up or dogs barking. I finally was able to sleep the whole night through. Temperature is very comfortable, with mosquito net, secure bedroom, ceiling fan and cross breezes. Great shower, just make sure to get piping hot water not to turn the water pressure up too high. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook fantastic meals, I was very pleased with myself. And in such a beautiful spot, the gardener has done a magnificent spot. We saw a sloth right outside the front gate too :) :) :) really great accomodation. Host is very helpful.

  • Nice Little House at playa chiquita. We enjoyed our stay and Ezekiel was such a helping host!

    Laura2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great ! We enjoyed it a lot ! It was convenient for us with our car and easy to travel along Talamanca’s area ! Thank you Ezequiel for all your help 😊

    Sybille2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really great time! The evenings and mornings were especially a great experience, as you are in surrounded by so many ‘jungle’ sounds. It was nice to have a kitchenette, and a big plus was the extra bed/couch outside to chill while you listen to all those sounds. Definitely recommend it!

    Jeremy2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Mini UP! house is very modern and designed with love, as shown in the pictures. You can tell that Ezequiel put a lot of effort into it. Overall, great and easy communication. Although you share the same property, living in the Mini UP! feels very private and secluded. With a locked front door at all times, we felt very safe. Since it is located in the middle of the jungle, you shouldn't mind being surrounded by a lot of animals (including Ezequiels cat) and in general many natural sounds, such as howling monkeys or heavy raindrops on the roof ;) Picturesque beaches, such as a supermarket and a variety of restaurants nearby. An absolute recommendation.

  • Daniela is a great host. She’s kind and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to help me with things only a local would know. Her house is minimal, but just what you need! Good vibes all around.

    Bart2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Daniela is the sweetest most amazing person and her place is so warm and well decorated. Everything is super clean and pretty. There’s a great energy here and all you need. She’s even left some candles and incense for guests. I’ve been here for almost two weeks and some more, and since then, Daniela has become my friend and even helped me meet musicians from here to help me get started with my musical journeys. The area is just a short bike away from everything, there are really good restaurants close by, there’s the beach, and everything felt really secure here in this street where everyone seems to know each other. This is exactly what I needed to relax and reboost! Thanksss so much Daniela!!!! xox

    Sylvie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Daniela is a very friendly and welcoming hostess. Helped a lot of advice. Very nice and comfortable and clean house.

    Armando2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Oasis was a great place to stay. It is a smaller hostel, so you get much closer to the other people staying there as well. Tom and the other people in the reception are really helpful and nice to chat with too. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a little beach retreat.

    Karen Mathilde2019-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Isabel2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cool, outdoor space. Interesting people. Great price. And close to everything. What more could you want in a hostal!

    Nan2019-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I was wary of a hostel where half the thing is sand but it actually works out really well. Oasis is actually super clean, everything from the bathroom to the kitchen. No ants in an outdoor hostel kitchen, amazing. You can lay in a hammock and listen to the waves. It's just one dorm so you meet everyone. Perfect amount of people. Just a really cool hostel, I'm glad I stayed here I would do it again.

    Samuel2019-02-05T00:00:00Z

    Clean, bright and beautiful private studio with private entrance, only a 5-minute bike ride through the jungle to the beach. Enjoy modern conveniences in the middle of a jungle paradise. Sleep to the soothing cacophony of frogs and cicadas, and wake up to the energy of toucans and monkeys.
    Concrete walls, a hot shower, gas oven, screens on every window, and more. As avid world travelers, we designed this place with every convenience that we felt would enable a beautiful, care-free visit. Love the fresh air, but don't like bugs? Every window has a screen to keep out the mosquitos. Like staying fresh without wasting energy? Powerful ceiling fans keep the air flowing inside and out on the private deck.
    This is the Costa Rican jungle, and nature is king here. It's both peaceful and wild, as the animal sounds can both lull you to sleep, and wake you early in the morning. Keep your eyes open and up, as you'll often catch sight of sloths, howler monkeys, toucans, macaws, tree frogs, and more.
  • Great place. Close to the beach but the beauty of being in nature. Host was great..even called me when I left something. Very tasteful unit with lovely outdoor deck. Good airflow with ceiling fans. Small kitchen was fine. Everything worked as advertised. Will return!

  • Great host! A cozy space in the jungle with delicious breakfast and a wonderful host

    Jennifer2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible experience! Do not miss it. The place is dreamed! It is in the middle of the rainforest, surrounded by nature. The terrace overlooking the tropical jungle is a magic, the feeling is to be living inside a National Park, full of vegetation and beautiful animals in their natural habitat. We don't have a car and we ride a bike, one of which Rotem kindly lent us. At night we took taxis, since it is not advisable to ride a bike because of the darkness of the area. Ideally, drive by car. Rotem is a very kind person, always very attentive and helpful. Every morning he left us prepared a delicious breakfast made by him with much love. If I could choose an ideal place to live, it would certainly be Rotem's house. A dream come true :) Thank you very much for everything and pure life!

    Suyay2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Modern Jungle Studio, Rotem is a great Host. Highly recommended! (you should have a car, that makes much easier)

    Nicole2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Rotem was a great host, always responding quickly to messages. The place is ideal if you want tranquility, it is 10 minutes by car from the center of Puerto Viejo.

    Javier2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great hidden gem in Puerto Viejo. Really nice and clean. Very friendly host, and great breakfast every morning. We recommend having a car to get here, or renting a bike since it’s not so close to the main road or beach. But the isolation and being in the middle of the jungle is part of its charm.

    PLEASE CONTACT US FOR LONG STAY SPECIALS! WE HAVE TWO MORE CASITAS. This casita is approximately 36 square meters.

We are only 300 meters from the spectacular beaches of Playa Negra where you can enjoy the virgin coast in its natural state and where the surf breaks every day!
    A lovely and quiet neighbourhood only 1 km from the town and 300 meters from the beach
  • Such a cool place!

    Jonas2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This might be my most favorite Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. Giorgio and Antoinella were amazing hosts, very helpful and great to chat with. We had everything we needed at the casita, with a cozy bed and hammock, hot water, fresh drinking water, kitchen utensils and cookware, full sized fridge, bikes for rent, etc. The walk to Playa Negra is only a few minutes away, and you can easily walk to the center of town, but the casitas are tucked away into the jungle, and the sounds of the jungle at night, especially during a rain, cannot be beat. It was truly a wonderful place to stay and I would happily recommend to friends.

    Holly2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • After several months traveling in CRica, this has been our best rental experience with Airbnb. Georgio and Antonella are excellent managers, well organized, and made our stay at Casitas las Flores delightful. Thank you for the fresh bag of ice in the freezer and the homemade cake! We liked that our bungalow was comfortable and private. Playa Negra is awesome!

    Kate2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin, beautiful grounds, great vibe, great hosts. Wonderful open-air kitchen connected to porch, which is very pleasant for inside-outside cooking/living/hanging out. On-site bike rentals are a definite bonus. Highly recommend a day of biking the coast to the national park in Manzanillo (not too far away!), and of course swimming and eating along the ride.

    Joseph2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience.clean unit in a wonderful l setting.

    James2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay! The cabin and it’s surrounding is very beautiful. We even saw a sloth hanging above our cabin. The best of all are the hosts Giorgio and Antonella, you can ask them anything. They were very kind and provided us with a lot of Information and tips about the region. On our arrival the bikes were already prepared for us so we could immediately go to Puerto Viejo which is only a 5 min bike ride. If you are visiting Puerto Viejo, this is the place to go!

    Stan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, we spotted slothes, and many other wild life here! It’s next to so much greenery it’s beautiful, and so many hummingbirds constantly coming by. Also everything was comfortable clean and hosts were very friendly!

    Casa Balto is Located 850 meters from the main beach road up the hill where sea breezes cool the ocean view deck. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a MUST to climb the hill up to the spectacular jungle setting. The house has full kitchen, A/C and a queen bed with tempurpedic topper. There is a half bath upstairs in the loft sleeping area. The living area contains a full sized sofa bed and a full bath. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and bird watchers.

  • We love travelling to new places every year and this was one of the best vacations we had. Amazing view, very tranquil, surrounded by nature, birds and animals were seen and heard at all times of the day. A pleasure to relax on the expansive deck. We did not want to leave the house at times, it was just so perfect and beautiful. Yes, you absolutely need a 4x4 car to drive to the house. If you are driving from San Jose, drivel in the daytime if you are new to the area, it will take approxim 4.5-5 hrs to Talamanca. We rented a car from Vamos, great experience with them, fair, honest company + can rent a phone with gps for $5/day which was worth. We explored the beaches in Puerto Viejo, and our favorite was Punta Uva. Had the best steak+ nice atmosphere at Koki Restaurant and delicious fish (Red snapper) + amazing view at Sobre Las Olas. Must go there! Alejo was very welcoming and kind, wonderful host.

    Mariana2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place really, the views are to die for, and only 5 mis from Puerto Viejo without the noise and busyness. We enjoyed coffee on the terrace everyday, listening to the waves crashing way down below. Alejo is a great host, quick to respond to any query, and the place was very private, felt very safe, and was very comfy.

    Hervé2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • I've stayed in a ton of air bnbs, and this is by far our favorite!!! Absolutely unbelievable location! The views are breathtaking, the town is amazing, and Alejo is thee absolute best and is extremely helpful. Do yourself a favor and book here!!! I even proposed up here and he had a friend lay petals EVERYWHERE and I cant explain how romantic it was. Everything was so perfect

    Jakob2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly exceptional. High up in the hills with fantastic views of the jungle, sea and coastline. Total privacy. A lot of wildlife around, including many birds and sloths. A modern well equipped house with A/C and a great bed with view of sunrise. Close proximity to the best beaches. A challenging drive up-hill even with a 4x4 but Alejo provided helpful tips. We highly recommend it. Andrejs and Lorraine Canada

    Andrejs2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We already miss Casa Balto! The views were so much better than the pictures can convey, and the sound of the jungle at night is something we will never forget. Alejo was a very gracious and hospitable host. It was also very cool running into him around town! The location is ideal, as you are a about 5 mins drive to the vibrant heart of town, amazing eateries, as well as several fantastic beaches. As others have mentioned, do not attempt to take a 2-wheel drive vehicle up the road, it is 4wd only. Otherwise this is a top recommendation and a stay you will not regret. Pura Vida!

    Lowell2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amzing place in the Caribbean, fully recommend. Alejo is always available and giving amazing tips. I cannot wait to come back

    Angie2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is just unbelievable! The best part is the incredible views and the fact that you can watch the sunrise from your bed! It’s located very close to the beach and the centre of puerto viejo so everything you could possibly need is very close while still being secluded at the same time! But what made this whole experience even better was how extremely kind and helpful Alejo is! If I make it back to puerto viejo I’m definitely staying there again! Alejo gracias por todos, pura vida 🤙🏽

    Ελευθερια2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 4 nights in Alejos accommodation and enjoyed every minute. The view from the cozy terrace is breathtaking. Most of the time we were just in the hammocks and have the animals around observed: Tucans, parrots, sloths (right in the tree next to the terrace), squirrels, colorful frogs, etc. The house offers a lot of space and is well equipped, all important is available. There was no sound except the jungle sounds and the sound of the distant sea. An all-wheel drive vehicle is definitely needed to get up the mountain. But even with our small PS-weak Daihatsu it worked. Alejo is super nice, the communication fast and uncomplicated. We really enjoyed the time and would come back immediately.

    The house is in a safe , quiet and secure area . Sleep at night with the sound of the ocean !
  • This was a wonderful place for us to stay during our time in Puerto Viejo! The home is beautiful and located near everything in town. We had a blast shopping at the markets and cooking some of our meals in the kitchen, and dining on their front porch. I enjoyed waking up to the birds and enjoying coffee on the porch, looking at the abundance of exotic plants and having the puppies greet me each morning for a scratch. Due to the Coronavirus Andrew was thoughtful to make sure we have plenty of soap, TP, sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. We appreciated his concern for our health. The beach is only a short 5 min walk into town and was beautiful. We also ventured to other towns that were close by (we rented a car which I would highly recommend) and got to see so much of the Caribbean coast. Andrew and his wife were wonderful hosts and were very accessible during all times of our trip. We really appreciated the tips and recommendations they gave us for our stay! I’d also like to mention how safe their home made us feel- we’ve been to Costa Rica a few times, and have always felt safe in every area of the country- however, the security and location of the home only added to our peace of mind! We can’t wait to come back and visit, and make more memories. Thanks again Andrew, for such a wonderful stay. We are looking forward to eating at your restaurant tomorrow evening for my birthday! Pura Vida! Rob and Paula

    Paula2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew was very very helpful and such a nice guy, he has insights and information on about anything you’ll need. The place is clean and comfortable. And about a 5 minute walk to the beach.

    Tamera2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Its a civilized place that is a bit raw (but that's a good thing) very safe a great experience . Don't be afraid to rent a scooter . Beaches are amazing.

    Lance2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew was an amazing host, the first night we tried to book the house was already taken, but Andrew accommodated us in his other rental in Manzanillo. We loved this spot so much that we ended up spending our whole trip in Manzanillo and loved every second of it! Highly recommend staying at one of Andrew's properties if you are in the area.

  • We stayed for a very long time at Andrews place (3 weeks). The Casita is just perfect for a stay at the Caribbean Cost. Close to the beach, really safe, very nice restaurants around (try Paola's Reggae Chill) and also is Puerto Viejo not far with a taxi, car or bike. Besides all of that Andrew was an marvelous host. In the end he is more like a friend than a host. He gave us a lot of tips and made every single day sure that we feel good and safe! He also has a few Apartments in Manzanillo which are really beautiful! We also recommend Andrew's Restaurant Chile Rojo. Try it and you won't regret it ;) All in all: Don't miss the chance to stay at one of Andrew's beautiful places. Thanks Andrew!!!!

    Bettina2018-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was perfect and as described. A 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes walk to downtown Puerto Viejo. Andrew is very welcoming, easy to communicate and always good advice. I highly recommend this accommodation.

  • Dan and Alicia’s place is really nice with everything you need in a great location. The location is ideal, a simple walk into town but you can rent a bike if you wish. And only 5 mins away from the beach The room is basic but clean and comfortable. There are 2 toilets so sharing didn’t seem to be an issue. Would recommend!

  • Dan and Alicia's place is great. Convenient to town and the beach. They are both warm and welcoming hosts and I would highly recommend staying in their place while in puerto viejo :)

  • Location! Our little crew (two adults, two children 10 & under) just finished a 2 week stay at the Casa Lina house. The location was absolutely perfect to feel like you were completely remote (very quiet, no light pollution) yet it was only mere moments away from all the amazing things Puerto Veijo has to offer. The space itself was perfect for our family. Since you are in Costa Rica, the majority of your time should be spent outside. The house offers two decks, both with stunning views of the jungle backing onto the property. We spent many an hour relaxing on the hammocks with an amazing view of "nature TV". Families of howler monkeys, lizards, many species of birds, butterflies and more. You can walk through the house to get to each deck offering a sort of breeze-way through the house. Inside, it's a cozy space but has everything you need to cook a meal, make coffee or settle in for a good night's sleep. Kinga and Lazlo (along with their assistant Sebastian) were always available at a moments notice via text if anything was needed. And most importantly, the recommendations from Lazlo and Kinga were wonderful. I feel we would not have enjoyed our time without their help. A few of our highlights, favorite things in the area: - Kayaking the Punta Uva River (5 minutes away). We so many sloths up close coming down for drinks, babies and all! - Zip Lining. Incredible experience about 20 minutes away - BriBri Hidden Waterfalls. Maybe my favorite thing of all. Make sure you have 4x4 its a steep climb. About 20 minutes away - Hiking in Cahutia National Park - Beaches Beaches and Beaches! If you like waves, you have come to the right place. There is a surfing area right in Cocles (2 minutes away) with a nice beach and huge waves. We caught a surfing competition while there. Our favorite beaches were in Punta Uva, about 5 minutes down the road. As for food, this was easy! So many amazing places to grab a bite. A few favorites: - Spicy Coconut. The Vegan Reich burger and the Curry bowls were amazing! - Madre Tierra. Amazing vegan options and the best smoothies we had in PV! - La Nena. Great classic Caribbean cuisine and about 2 minutes from the house. You can order over WhatsApp and pickup - Luma. Fantastic Pizza and Empanandas and they deliver to the house - Amimodo. Stellar Pizza and Gnocchi - Hard Rocks. More North American themed, but have awesome Tacos and Nachos. Live music as well - Stashus Con Fusion. Run by some friendly fellow Canadians, simply stunning rice dishes - The Hub. Perfect for Breakfast and Lunch and only a short walk away. I highly recommend making Casa Lina part of your Costa Rica Adventure. 5 STARS!

  • Very beautiful site in an idyllic setting. Ideally placed, close to beaches and parks. We had a great time in this accommodation.

    Philippe2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • It is an amazing place, wonderful, close to everything, easily accessible, with all the necessary amenities.

    Kenneth2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place surrounded by nature, a little away from the city but close to beaches like Punta Uva, Supermarket a few minutes away, we also received several recommendations to make.

    Paul2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a lovely jungle setting, with a beautiful garden that has bananas growing in the trees. Our favourite thing to do was to lounge on the hammocks spotting wildlife. The house has two outdoor decks which was really helpful for everyone to do their own thing. It was great to be in a peaceful spot away from the busyness of Puerto Viejo. The best swimming beach is a 10-15 minute drive in Punta Uva. There are two good sized bedrooms, the second room was a bit of a squeeze for two adults to share but we managed. The beds were all super comfortable. Only downside to the house design is the lounge area is really small so there’s nowhere to hang out inside as a family in the evenings, but it would be ok for a couple.

    Suzy2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice place, next to the jungle and near the beach. With everything you need.

    Simón2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was a beautiful home with the lush green forest around you however less than 10mins to the beach in any direction once out on the main road. Playa Cocles was very beautiful and the sand looked like there was glitter everywhere. It was so beautiful.

  • Well located and surrounded by nice people!

    Felix2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place of Elisa is ideal to spend a few days in Puerto Viejo, excellent location, good amenities, excellent cleaning, nice balcony to spend some time outdoors and very good service of check in and response. highly recommended for the price and the quality of the place is a perfect option

    Gonzalo2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very well located place, near the beach, easy access very clean and complete, excellent service and communication ..

    Sofii2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Elisa is very accommodating and answers any questions you have promptly. There is a seating area on the patio that you can enjoy. It’s a perfect central location in Puerto Viejo and easily walkable to markets, restaurants and beaches. She even has bikes that you can rent and cruise to other beaches. The top loft was quiet . The fan was strong and made for good white noise. There is a fridge in the kitchen with a couple cups, plates and bowls if you choose to cut fruit, make sandwiches or a salad. Water in the shower is warm/hot with decent pressure. There is also a tv in the room and plenty outlets to charge your electronics. The loft is great for the price , and being upstairs wasn’t as bad with the mosquitoes! I’d definitely recommend this place and stay here again!

    Sebastian2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • (Tell your driver you're staying to the left of Sel et Sucre.) Comfortable bed, secure lock, reliable internet. Host is an excellent communicator, ready to help however she can. The room has screened windows on 3 sides so except for during the heat of a sunny afternoon it's comfortable not having an air conditioner. There's a big fan that covers most of the sounds (roosters, howler monkeys, dogs, TVs) that come with the convenient location. I stayed there 8 nights and only 1 night was loud with a party in the neighborhood. The other 7 nights were downright peaceful with normal noises as described above. The kitchen is barebones -- a few dishes, glasses, utensils, cutting board, big bowl for salad -- with no heat source but has a very cold midsized refrigerator. Nice big bathroom. One neighbor burns trash so sometimes a burning smell comes into the room for a half-hour. Once the water went out for a day and Elisa said the crews were repairing a main pipe. If you're going to get angry about such things you should stay at an expensive hotel where you still won't have water but Ticos will be paid to listen to you complain. :-) I would definitely stay at Elisa's place again and say, "Hey, let's go swimming instead of showering and eat breakfast at Soda Riquisimo! Pura vida!"

    Alane2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The room is very well located in Puerto Viejo, just off the main street, close to quiet restaurants, the entrance is independent.

    Ercan2018-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious apartment right in the heart of Puerto Viejo. Comfortable bed and pillow and great bathroom with warm shower. Excellent communication with host. Ask Elisa to recommend some local sodas nearby for lunch or dinner - the food is delicious!! Thank you for a lovely stay Elisa 👏👏👏

    Jon2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay here. Rick gave us good advice on beautiful places to go and it was nice to have some AC after a few days on the beach. The additional option of using the amenities at a near by hotel was also nice. Great place to stay

    Karen2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great, comfortable space for the price. Rick was super accommodating and made us feel home at every step of our stay. Hotel access is a great perk for enjoying lovely gardens & beach access and offers a high quality dining experience (without having to book a room!). Highly recommended for a couple visiting PV.

  • The Surf Shack is spacious, stylish & comfortable! We felt extremely safe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It's in a great location - quiet, though close walking distance to anything you might need (Puerto Viejo is pretty small, so most things are walking distance). Olivia was quick to respond to all of our communications and an all around courteous host! We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Olivia & Julian!

    Rowan2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and very safe and secure. Close to everything. Best spot for exploring the area.

    Matthew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful house located in the heart of a great little vibrant town with a bustling back-packer/surfer vibe. It's nessled away in a side street, so nice and quiet but 2 minutes walk to beach, bars and restaurants. Would highly recommend and Olivia was very helpful and always quick to respond.

    Chris2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, spacious, safe house, close to everything. Very good parking and beautiful garden. 100% recommendable!

    Ana2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, very comfortable and welcoming, right in the town but private and relaxing.

    Cynthia2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia was so helpful with us and she has a great place, highly recommended...

    Roberto2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect. It was close to everything in Puerto Viejo but far enough away to be nice an quiet and very secure.

    Derek2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very well located 200 metres from the beach in a road set back and running parallel to the coast. It is at the Southern end of the main part of town which is easily accessible. There is a very friendly bike shop and (seperate, nearby) bakery close to the end of the house road on the main strip, both highly recommended. The security for the house is top notch with internal alarms, security fencing, a very large safe, and an electronic gate, so it felt very safe, not that we didn’t feel safe in Puerto Viejo, but it was good to know everything was secure at the house when we went out. The big supermarket is about 800 metres from the house, but there are many small shops closer if you don’t want to do a big shop. The house is great for families - very functional as you are in and out of the house to and from the beach with all that implies in terms of wet clothes and sand. We were a group of 5 adults and a two-year-old child and found everything we needed. The washing machine and dryer were industrial strength and size so good for getting everything done at once, though they took some working out to get running. The house shows a few signs of wear and tear but it’s what you would expect as a functioning beach house. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. There was great communication with Olivia and Julian; nothing was too much trouble. For example, we stayed over Christmas and the gas ran out on the second day but we simply contacted Olivia and within the hour it was replaced. We were very happy with our stay and recommend both the house and Puerto Viejo which is warm, friendly, and vibrant. It was our first time in Costa Rica and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience.
