We've had a wonderful stay at Janet's place. They were very helpful and really great people.
The apartment is beautiful and you can spot plenty animals from your hammock:)
Puerto Viejo is a great spot in Costa Rica, a really easy vibe where you can cruise along the beach with your bike.
We had a great time! The house is spacious, clean and lies in the middle of the beautiful garden. It's even more beautiful than the pictures suggest and we definitely recommend to go to this place. The bed is really king size and a good night sleep is guaranteed. It must be said that Janet and Nick get up early in the morning and it's a bit noisy at that time (because they live on the first floor). But if you don't mind getting up early, it's not a problem.
Janet and Nick are great hosts and give us very good advice about beaches (5 minutes walk through a trail with sloths!), restaurants, supermarket and surf lessons.
We spent some days in Janet's beautiful house and it was just amazing!
The house was very clean and the details of decoration were just unique. The bathroom is spectacular with its wooden washing table and the cute little mosaics everywhere. The outdoor shower has warm water and makes you feel part of the nature.
The open kitchen is well equiped , so you can prepare easyly your own food at home.
Janet and nick,Americans, are great hosts, the live in the upper part of the house. They were very helpful and gentle.
The beach of Chiquita , for me one of the nicest in the area of puerto viejo, it's just a 3 min foot walk away. There is a grocery and several restaurants nearby in easy walk distance.
We would defenetly recommend this accommodation and hope to come back!
Thank you Nadja! We are really flattered by your kind words. It's really rewarding to have people enjoy the little projects like mosaic and reclaimed furniture and garden areas. Makes me want to start a new one... Hmmm.
We spent in this great apartment three fabulous nights: it was big, quiet and surrounded by nature. We could relax and Janet and Nick were really nice and helpful. I would definitely suggest it to everyone!
Thank you Manuela! We enjoyed you both and DO hope you'll return someday.
Janet and Nick were wonderful hosts! They helped us with loads of local info so we could get the most out of our stay. The open-air living room and kitchen provided the best combo of comfort and jungle living, where we could relax and listen to the sounds of the area. Playa Chiquita beach, several great restaurants and a local market are all a short walk away. We rented bikes to take trips to both Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva Beach, both close enough to reach easily on bikes. Thanks so much Janet and Nick for letting us check-out for a couple of days - it was so needed and we couldn't think of a better place to do it!
I don't think our trip would have been anywhere near the experience we had were it not for our hosts. Janet took us in as her own and helped us navigate the small town of puerto viejo with the kind of knowledge only a local has. She and her husband made us feel so at home and they even advocated for us when some tours we planned didn't work out like we imagined. They are gracious people and so warm. We are thankful to have had the chance to meet them, this being my sons first trip anywhere I am so glad to say they were a part of his memories! Thanks a ton and we cannot wait to get back!!
If you are looking for a very lovely outdoor place to stay surrounded by beautiful, private, quiet and lush gardens, then this is the one to pick. We spent 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The living area was spacious, very neat and clean and the outdoor shower was fun! The king-size bed was a bonus and both the bedroom and bathroom were lockable. There were excellent restaurants and beaches within walking distance. Janet and Nick were friendly and accommodating and provided us with a lot of information about the area. We highly recommend staying here.
