Such a charming house, located very close to a semi-private, swimmable beach. The town is a 5-7 minute walk away, restaurants and stores are all within walking distance (Sobre Los Olas and Le Fe were our two favorite restaurants). It was nice to be off the beaten track, but still close to anything we needed. The house is equipped with a full kitchen to cook, drinkable water, beautiful woodwork, relaxing patio & hammocks, Wi-Fi, comfy beds, large master bathroom, and a small upstairs den that I loved for reading or yoga while listening to nature. Annie was very helpful when planning the trip, providing great recommendations. Booking with her was an easy process and I knew we were in good hands. Our house host Fiona was a great resource as well. We hardly noticed her in the back house, but was always available if we needed anything. Everyone we met was super friendly and made sure we were always having a good time...Pura Vida as they say :) This house and town has a piece of our heart....it allowed for a truly relaxing vacation. We would highly recommend Casa Verde for your stay in Cahuita!

This beautiful house is amazing. My 80 year old mother and I stayed here for one week. While having our morning coffee we saw green poison arrow frogs, parrots, leaf cutter ants, flycatchers and even a sloth! The house is beautiful, clean and private. The interior is well designed with elegant wood throughout. The house has air conditioning upstairs but we didn't use it, the airy breeze and the ceiling fans kept fresh cool air circulating through the house. The clean open beach is close, it took us about 2 minutes to walk there. Cahuita National Park is within walking distance. It's a great park with all kinds of wildlife that is so abundant! We saw howler monkeys, giant iguanas, blue morpho butterflies etc.
Annie is a welcoming host, we felt at home the moment we arrived. She helped us arrange transportation and arrangements for our visit to the Jaguar Rescue Center.
I highly recommend Casa Verde for it's setting, it's beauty and for Annie, a very gracious host!

About: I am originally from Australia and moved to Calgary, Canada in 2002. In April 2008 I went on a surfing vacation to Costa Rica and fell in love with the country, its friendly people and laid back way of life.
In July 2008 I moved back to Costa Rica and started working with a Costa Rican Travel Agency. This allowed me to continue traveling around the country and also to introduce the country to other people wanting to travel in Central America.
I still work in the Travel Industry and can assist you in booking your travel plans in and around Costa Rica.
Why Cahuita: After traveling all over Costa Rica and living in San Jose I decided to move to the Caribbean Coast and Cahuita was the natural choice. It is a beachside community with the stunning combination of beautiful beaches surrounded by lush rain forest. There is an amazing National Park where you can see monkeys, sloths, iguanas, caimans and a variety of birdlife
Cahuita is also known for its amazing snorkeling.
I love the position of Casa Verde which is located just outside the village of Cahuita and is a short stroll or bike ride to restaurants, bars, beaches and yoga classes
The Unique Benefits at this House: I fell in love with Casa Verde because great access to the beach, the village of Cahuita but at the same time the gardens and hammock area provide a tropical respite from the every day world.
