A passionate traveller myself I finally settled in this little piece of paradise and live happily in monkey mood mode...
Staying with the Hernandez family was absolutely beautiful! We got to experience the Carribean the way we wanted to, and make some memorable friendships. Anja and Mau were so helpful with organizing our trip, and showing us around! The home itself was a beautiful, little apartment tucked away in the jungle! We were so comfortable staying with the Hernandez family, and I really hope we can get back to Costa Rica sometime soon to visit!
Anja and Mau are delightful, I had a wonderful time with them. Their house is a typical jungle cabin perfectly situated between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. I highly recommend staying with them in their inviting home when visiting Costa Rica's caribbean coast.
Anja and Mau were great. Location was as advertised. Cool jungle living.
Great stay! Anja was extremely helpful setting up our travel to and from puerto Viejo and was always there to give us advice or directions. The house is truly in the jungle and it is a very unique and cool experience. Great option for backpackers if you want to avoid a hostel.
We loved staying with Anja and Mau; we really can't say enough good things about our trip with them. They were fantastic hosts and a pleasure to spend time with. The cabin felt like something out of a movie in a beautiful jungle setting across the street from the beach. Do yourself a favor and stay here.
Viajé sola a Puerto Viejo y me alojé en casa de Anja y Mau. Tengo que decir que la casa es maravillosa, al igual que los anfitriones. La localización y el acceso es muy bueno¡ Espero poder volver a repetir pronto¡¡
We had the pleasure of staying at Monkey Mood for our honeymoon in early May. Anja and Mau were welcoming, kind and helpful throughout our stay! Before we set foot in Costa Rica, Anja helped us plan our complete honeymoon, from setting up our transportation and all excursions. She was responsive and incredibly knowledgable!We had a wonderful time exploring the nearby beach and community via beach cruisers. A few of our favorite experiences were tasting tropical fruits at the Saturday Farmer's Market, Punta Uva beach, and the Jaguar Rescue Center! We loved staying at their home with their friendly dogs. The room was clean and comfortable. We loved the open windows and hearing the soothing sounds of the jungle. It was a fantastic experience!
*****5star jungle accomodation*****
I simply loved the place! Surrounded by the beauty, charme and sounds of the jungle and just a stonethrow from the beach, perfect!
You couldn't feel more welcome and homy than with these superfriendly relaxed and helpful hosts. I had a wonderful time there and would always go back!!
Super jungle feeling exactly what i suspected.
Hosta are very nice and helpful for planing future trips ect.
Supermarkets, restaurants and the beach in walk/bike distance
This place was amazing! I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't been already said in other reviews. My friends and I stayed with Anja for 2 nights and it was my favorite place during our entire trip. The cabin is close to the beach and an easy bike ride into town. The room itself is big enough for 3 people, and plenty of room to lounge on the porch.
Anja and her husband were extremely welcoming and helpful. They gave us great suggestions on where to eat and helped us rent bikes while we were there. Anja also set up our rafting trip and our shuttle back to San Jose. Their dogs are awesome and hung out with us on the porch at night. Anja even arranged to get a cake for one of my friend's birthday the first night we were there!!
Huespedes perfectos! Perfect guests!
Espero visitarles en Punta Uva un dia!
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.
