That was our first week in costa rica and it was the best place to start a vacation. The beach was close by, the host andres was the friendliest person in the world. He even invited us to his private birthday party where we were finally dancing with his family.
The house is basic, but clean and not a thing is missing. The kitchen has all you need for cooking. We cooked a lot.
They built a nice bed for our daughter! We really liked the way it was done.
The beach is wonderful. The restaurants are great. Kine(great homemade pasta!), the bakery and the ice cream store were our favorites. We booked upon recommendation and we would always book this again.
Thank you Anja and Mau for helping make our honeymoon so amazing! It was better than we imagined and we would definitely stay with you two again!
Good room. Very nice family. A little far from the main town. But if you want to chill out its easy enough to ride bikes into town :) very nice surroundings. Wifi worked great. Very clean room
Anja was quick to respond and communicate, she also picked us up at the bus station for ($8). Our stay with the Hernandez family was a beautiful experience, we loved the room, the family are so friendly and the location is perfect. Just ten minutes walk to beautiful beaches and unspoilt jungle areas. The supermarket is well stocked and easily reached by walking, we used the small shared kitchen to prepare meals - lovely to wake up to the beautiful garden with freshly brewed coffee. Bicycles can be rented for the easy, flat cycles rides along this 12km stretch of coastline. We would recommend anyone who wants to stay outside the busier nightlife of Viejo de Talamanca town to stay here (although buses are frequent and taxis can be arranged). A great experience and a wonderful introduction to an authentic Costa Rica.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Hernandez place 3nights. Room is charming and looks exact like on picture. You can rent bike from family which was perfect to explore near by towns. We left after to Arenal and Antonio Manuel NP and rest of trip we were talking we should have stayed longer. It was perfect.Thank you for having us. Irena
Disfrutamos mucho de nuestra visita. La cabaña estaba limpia y linda. Hay una pequeña cocina y zona "chill out" exterior. La ubicación es tranquila, un paseo a chiquita playa y un paseo en bicicleta en el pueblo. Un gran lugar para alojarse, lo recomendaría.
Fue unas de los mejor lugares donde hemos quedado todo el viaje en Costa Rica! La familia es muy muy amable y el cuarto súper limpio. Queda muy tranquilo cerca de la playa chiquita cual no está lleno de gente :) gracias para unos días perfectos nos sentíamos como en casa!
I only stayed here two nights but had an amazing time, wish it would have been longer. The house is in the middle of nature, far enough from touristy Puerto Viejo but close enough to restaurants and a supermarket. Playa Chiquita and the other beaches around are beautiful, you should definitely rent a bike for a one day trip across the coast. I highly recommend this place!
Anja es muy amable, nos sentimos como a casa. La casita es muy linda, en la naturaleza pero cerca de todo. El lugar es muy agradable. Gracias por todo!
The stay was really nice, we had a priced shared room. We had privacy, the family is very hostable and open, the room is in the jungle very beautiful, got woken up from holing monkeys and near to the most beautiful beaches we've been in CR.
I definitely recommend this place!
Anja and her three friends were good guests - easy to communicate with and left the apartment in a good condition.
Anja stayed for several days with his friends at my apartment. Great guest, left my apartment spotless, very friendly people. Welcome back!
Huespedes perfectos! Perfect guests!
Espero visitarles en Punta Uva un dia!
I have known Anja for nearly one year, and even before we met I knew I had a friend to welcome me to Puerto Viejo. She is dependable and organized, well connected within her community, open-minded and gracious. Her home in Punta Uva is out of a dream - surrounded by tropical jungle and a hop skip and a jump to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Anyone would be lucky to stay in her home and/or have her help in coordinating their trip.
It is now that I consider myself lucky to be posting a review as Anja's friend. A little over a month ago I was just a tourist who booked what looked like a cool place to stay in Costa Rica. You think you are renting accommodation? You are getting a chance to spend great time with welcoming, fun, dynamic, intelligent, hospitable, big-hearted couple. Anja and Mao are radiating with tremendously accommodating energy that envelopes you from the first minutes. They will treat you like good old friends who came to visit and by day two staying in this jungle wonderland you will start believing that you have known them always...and wish you have had more time to spend together.
The house is tucked away in a luscious tropical jungle. Civilization ceases to exist. It is breathtakingly beautiful by day and fabulously musical by night. There is nothing like the orchestra of the jungle. You will make the owl sound for months after you leave this place ;) Do not rob yourself of this experience.
The beach...White sand, Caribbean blue water (30 degree Celsius), palm trees ...for kilometers... and no one around. It is all there at your personal disposal. oh, yes it takes one 2 mins to get to the beach. Does it get better than this?
Wir haben bei Anja und Maurice eine wundervolle entspannte Woche verlebt. Das Haus liegt umgeben von Dschungel unweit vom schönen Strand und von der turbulenteren Kleinstadt Puerto Viejo. Das Zimmer ist sauber und gemütlich und wir haben den "Familienanschluss" zu Anja, Maurice und ihren witzigen Haustieren sehr genossen.
