The house is a cute, nicely decorated, "loft" type of house right next to the main road. BEST location you can get in Puerto Viejo, it's in Cocles, 2 minute walk to the grocery store, and a 5 minute walk to the beach. We rented bikes to go into town, which is about a 10-15 minute bike ride away.
We did have issues with the water, however, we did come during Easter weekend (the busiest weekend in Puerto Viejo), and I understand there was a water issue that weekend. Eventually the water started working and Nathalie checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. She was an extremely helpful host.
Very open house but surprisingly not to many bugs- just a couple very cuddly cats:)
We very much enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to everyone.
Nathalie was an excellent host! She was there to greet me at the house when I arrived, she showed me everything I needed to know about the house, and she showed me many great beach spots/restaurants/etc. The house is cute and homey. The curtain walls are a great touch to really make you feel like you're in the jungle but there was rooms to close off the bedroom if you're more comfortable sleeping that way. The house was clean and well equipped. The only thing I wasn't super thrilled about was the fact that I couldn't really get any jot water. There was one shower I took where the water was pretty lukewarm, but the rest were cold.
Overall, the house was great! I would definitely recommend for anyone seeking a cozy get away not too far from town!
Nathalie oli huippu mukava ja erittäin avulias. Kaikki asiat hoituivat helposti ja Nathalieen sai todella nopeasti yhteyden sähköpostitse. Hän myös esitteli meille kaupunkia ja kertoi, mistä saadaan polkupyörät vuokrattua yms.
Asunto oli juuri niin kuin kuvissa ellei vielä parempikin. Majoituimme viikon verran ja ainoa huono asia oli, että jouduimme lähtemään pois ja se, että riippumattoja oli vain yksi, koska meinasi tulla sanaharkkaa kuka saa olla riippumatossa :). Tämä oli todelakin uniikki kokemus, kun voi asua avoimessa asunnossa ja herätä aamulla lintujen lauluun, gekkojen naksutukseen ja toisinaan mölyapinoiden mölyämiseen.
Asunto sijaitsi polkupyörällä hyvänmatkan päässä Puerto Viejon keskustasta n.10min pyöräily ja Coclesin uimaranta oli aivan vieressä.
Suosittelemme tätä majoittajaa sekä majoituspaikkaa 110% kaikille :)
Nathalie made us feel confortable and she gave us advice and tip on the places around,her place was perfect for 2 and it was realy nice we enjoyed our stay there and definately would go back! thank you very much Nathalie !
Nathalie's place was great! Perfect location with everything a short bike ride away. We loved the open air layout and hammock especially. Being a little further from town made it quieter at night and we could listen to the sounds of the jungle. Playa Cocles is a beautiful beach just down the road and Tasty Waves (a 5 min bike ride) was a fun place to drink and eat tacos on Tuesday. The neighbors were great and gave us info about the area. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Nathalie as she was out of town but she was really helpful via email about any questions we had. We would absolutely stay here again!
I must say that Nathalie was very helpfully arranging our stay. She unfortunately was out of town and we never got to meet her but was but checked in with us daily to see how we were doing. When we arrived at the house we meet her friend that was cleaning and preparing the place for us. He showed us around and helped us feel at home. We stayed three nights and enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located a short bike ride to town, beach and walking distance to the local super market.
Our only negative feedback would be related to the over all cleanliness of the place when we arrived and the bed/pillows were quite musty smelling. We did not have great sleeps during our stay but all in all a great place to enjoy the area.
If the bedding issue was corrected I would absolutely stay there again.
We had a great time staying at Nathalie's place. It was just as described in the profile. Location is super close to the only grocery store in Cocles, and that is very convenient. This place has everything you need for a relaxing stay near the beach, just make sure you realize that it is hot and very humid in this area. This of course is not Nathalie's fault :) There is a standing fan for the bedroom which helps with the heat.
Nathalie's abode is a great respite away from the hustle and bustle of 'town' (Puerto Viejo). We throughly enjoyed our stay, and would be pleased to return again in the future. I recommend a form of transportation to/from town and other beaches (e.g. car or bike), otherwise make sure you have your walking shoes on! It is about 2 km to get into town. A taxi to/from the house will cost you about 2 mil colones.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights during out trip to Puerto Viejo area - and absolutely loved it. The space is really great. It's mostly open air where you can hear the sounds of the animals in the trees and watch the rain while laying in the hammock. We spent a lot of time in Puerto Viejo which was an easy bike ride. Nathalie was always quickly available if we needed anything at all. Would definitely stay again!
Nathalie was a great host, even coming to meet us at the bus stop while penalty shots were going on in the Costa Rican match against Greece for the World Cup. Her place is lovely and in a great location.. Right by a bike rental place, restaurants, and a supermarket with a very impressive selection of wines and beers. And BONUS: there's a friendly neighborhood cat that might just stop by to say hello.
