Debora was a great host and the apartment is beautiful. We really liked the fact that you could open the whole place up. The kitchen is well equipped and Debora had made sure we had plenty of drinking water and tea/coffee. The house has two bikes that you can use as well and you need them in Puerto viejo. The only downside to this place from our perspective is that it is a 30min walk from town. This is fine during the day as we cycled everywhere but at night it was a bit annoying; the roads are not very well lit/pitch black in places. Make sure you get a number for a taxi and that will make it easier at night.
My fiance and I had an amazing experience staying at the beach house. The place is beautiful, open air, fully equipped with everything you need, close to town yet on it's own large property removed from main roads, the only thing next to you is the El Jardin which is on the opposite side of the property from the seperate bedroom so we never even really new they were there. The closest "hotel" that most local drivers know is chimuru beach retreat canibas, and it is 5 to 10 min walk from there down a private road to the house. Deborah was a great host, anything we needed she was just a phone call away, I would highly recommend staying here. Rent a bike from the cafe where deborah works, its an easy ride to town, and a flat ride to some amazing beaches, south of puerto viejo, such as playa cocles, and punta uva, and playa negra is only a 10 min walk from the house. Bring a flashlight for your walk or ride back to the house at night, the road close to the house has street lights but it will be dark on the main roads. support the locals and buy some food at the farmers market (saturday), produce stalls, fish straight from the fisherman, and utilize the great kitchen at the house. (website hidden) has some amazing local activities that have the best interest of eco-sustainable tourism in mind. Many other great things to do here in puerto viejo, and staying here will make you feel at home right away. If your looking for a unique experience and dont need room service, ac, and someone to make your bed, you probably wouldn't be on airbnb , so stay here and get a taste of pura vida!
The 4 of us had a wonderful time at Deboras cosy place. You just sink right into carribean nature - a great place to relax, close to village, surf spot and most beautiful beaches. Debora was really friendly and helpful.
Debora's Casa Roja was beautiful! We enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the cat and her 6 kittens that were temporarily sharing the place. Debora was very helpful and knowledgable about Puerto Viejo. She cooks the best breakfast and brews the best coffee in town at her restaurant Cafe Rico. It was an incredible vacation both because of Debora's hospitality and also because my girlfriend and I got engaged! We'll be back!
Debora is the sweetest host and we had a lovely stay at her at her excellent house! The way you can open up the house is so clever - and so is the rest of the architecture of the house.
The bedroom house is perfect luxury with a great bed and an amazing bathroom with hot water - perfect!
The kitchen is big and well-equipped and Debora is growing fresh herbs that she was so kind to let us use from. We never tasted better basil:)
You can hear the ocean and you feel instantly at home.
Thank you for an amazing stay Debora!
The property was extremely well decorated with a great attention to detail. The walls/doors (seen in the photos) that open up provide a unique experience. In fact, one morning a hummingbird flew into the bedroom, hovered and flew away. If you are looking for a tranquil home and a connection to nature this is ideal. It is about a 5-7 minute walk to the beach so the sound of waves can be faintly heard.
One suggestion - try to arrive during daylight. Unfortunately my transportation into Puerto Viejo was tardy and I arrived later than I expected. The house is located along a dark road which made it somewhat of a challenge to locate the house. I recommend packing a flashlight.
It was a real pleasure to stay at Debora's place in Puerto Viejo. The house is beautiful and original. The architecture is really made for vacations in this part of the world. We loved the feeling of being outside at all time, hear and experience the nature around us. The house is just big enough for 4 people, very practical and confortable. As a french family we loved cooking in the well furnished kitchen. The bathroom is beautiful and taking a shower "outside" is an amazing experience.
Debora is a perfect host, very thoughtful and had great advise about the region, restaurants and activities.
The location is ideal: 20 minutes walking to Puerto Viejo, less than 5minutes to the beach, 5minutes (email hidden) and little shop and a yoga studio. The street is calm and safe.
We will recommend this destination to anyone who want to spend some unique vacation in paradise, surfing, eat some good seafood. Caribbean laid back feeling.
Thank you so much Debora, that was perfect !
