We are a nice spanish family. We live just behind this house. We would love to greet people and provide the necessary information of our area to make your holiday unforgettable!
This house is even better than the pictures. Gorgeous living area is completely open air while the bedrooms all have their own doors to come outside. Waking up and having a cup of tea we saw hummingbirds and agouti in the yard every morning. There is also a friendly cat that hangs out outside all of the time. The location is really prime; set back away from the main road but close enough to walk anywhere you need.
The actual beach of Playa Chiquita is gorgeous and secluded, you can absolutely walk along the beach and find a spot where no one else is. The walkway to the beach is a trail surrounded by huge trees that house howler monkeys and sloths. Just down the road from the house is a place called La Botanica Organica which is a veggie cafe that serves fresh and delicious food and drink (ginger lemonade!!)
Paola was a lovely and energetic host, she arranged for us to be picked up and taken to the house when we got there and when we met her she immediately showed us around the garden, telling us to take our fill of what the fruit trees in the yard had to offer (coconut, rambutan aka mamonchino in CR, and various citrus). She has plenty to recommend for places to go and things to do - hiking, kayaking, ziplining, etc. There are good beach hikes nearby (Punta Uva and Punta Mano), and renting a bike for $5/day will get you anywhere you need to go.
If you want to sit back and enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle, this place is perfect, we loved it!
This house is incredible! All 3 bedrooms are huge and the bathrooms are very nice. The woodwork throughout is amazing. The whole house feels like a work of art. The outdoor living area was exactly what we were looking for. Waking up and walking outside and enjoying the garden were perfect starts to our day. My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights here and we loved it. Paola was a great host and gave us recommendations on where to eat and nightlife. She lives just down the road and was available for whatever we needed. The house itself is up a slight hill but very easy to get to great beaches. It’s about a 5 minute drive to the hustle of Puerto Viejo but the privacy and quiet were perfect for us. There were also some incredible restaurants within a kilometer of the house. Pura Gula was our favorite! All in all, we were more than impressed with the house. It was amazing and we would definitely stay here when we return to Costa Rica.
The reservation was canceled 45 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Paola was such a wonderful hostess, and gave us all kinds of local information when we arrived. Staying at this home is like camping in a museum. The kitchen was outside and the critters loved it when it was dinner time. This home was designed by the owner (Paola's Dad) and was really beautiful. The art collection was amazing. Everyday I discovered something new to admire and look at.
Great place to stay
The Colonial house is an amazing experience, there is no better words to describe it! Its like having an entire hotel to your self.
Paola is the perfect host - sweet, fun and easy to communicate with - and she helped os with loads of information and great tips.
If we ever have the opportunity to come back to Costa Rica again, we would love to stay there again:)
We had an amazing time at this cute house in Playa Chiquita during our month stay. It is perfect for walking to the beach, the local restaurants and market or biking to Punta Uva beach. Paula, Juanka and Unai are the sweetest, kindest family that became our friends and we will surely miss them!
