  • Very comfortable

    "We stayed with our grown-up family in Feb/Mar 2015 and found the house quiet and relaxing. It is big and spacious, and pleasantly cool when the shutters are open, except for the upstairs bedroom which gets hot during the day - but this room has air con if you need it. We found that overnight that bedroom cools and we never used the air con., just the fans was enough. Our favourite space was the verandah, which has plenty of room and is shaded - a lovely place to enjoy looking at the trees and birds whatever the weather. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are all fine and the management made sure we had wifi. The location is good if you prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Viejo, which can generally be reached by walking along the beautiful Playa Negra beach (depending on the tide!) The local facilities are great. the Point is ten minutes walk away, on the beach, and does good food and great beers. The Banana Azul hotel is just a few minutes away, also on the beach, and is very happy to welcome casual visitors to use its bar, its super restaurant and other facilities (eg bikes and beach loungers) - you can have the best of both worlds, home and hotel! We all had a great time and will definitely go back."

  • I fell in Love with this place!

    "I stayed at The Bounty for almost 3 weeks in November of 2014. I loved it! Susanna who manages the property not only answered all my questions (and I had a lot as this was my first time to the area) but she also helped me make arrangements for transfer to the area which was a lot of fun! (My friend and I white water rafted our way down from San Jose at her suggestion). When we arrived in the evening, we were met by Chilo the caretaker who was so friendly and helpful. The house is right on the beach and a shirt walk to town (took us about 20 minutes on the beach, faster if we walked on the road). There is a small market about a 5 minute walk away with a nice little beach bar with great food across the street. The house was exactly as described and absolutely beautiful! I left the window shutters open and the ocean breeze was amazing. I fell asleep and woke up to the sound of waves and the birds. After my friend headed home, I was alone at the house and never once felt unsafe. It was great to have the kitchen, WiFi and laundry at the house. Linda, the owner, came after I had been there for a few days. She lives in the other half of the house (duplex) and she was so awesome to be around. She had so much info about the area and helped me multiple times. A genuinely wonderful person to be around. This house was far enough away town that it was quiet yet close enough to get their easily. There were many days that we had the entire beach, for as far as you could see, to ourselves. I HIGHLY recommend this property!"

  • A special place

    "My wife and I recently stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The location is excellent, the area has a multitude of activities and Stephanie with Caribe Sur Rentals was always available before and during our trip to answer questions, help with reservations and make recommendations for restaurants and activities. The house sits behind Punta Uva beach on a beautifully landscaped lot and as noted in another review has all amenities. We took a jungle tour with Abel Bustamante which was exciting, educational and fun, visited the Jaguar Rescue Center in town(private tour recommended) and the Wildlife Rescue Center in Moin, hiked Cahuita National Park and couldnt find a bad restaurant. As always, the incredibly friendly, helpful, gracious Costa Rican people made every day a treasure. As an example, we got lost trying to find the Moin Wildlife Rescue Center and ended up in some industrial complex where a guard who didnt speak English got a guard who did to give us directions. Well, we got lost again and another local person offered to help and was calling the center on his phone for directions when the guard we spoke with pulled up in his pickup truck to make sure we were okay. He had followed to check on us. The only disappointment we had was not being able to snorkel. The water was excellent for swimming and body surfing but too rough for snorkeling. You can check the surf levels at www.surfline.com if interested. So, lots of stuff to do close by and/or relaxing/ reading in a hammock listening to the sound of the water aint bad either."

  • A bit rustic, but comfortable enough, and a great jungle experience

    "The driveway into the jungle lets you know right away that this house is far from ordinary! If you're looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. The only living rm is upper level deck, & there's no AC, no screens, no tv, & the kitchen is pretty Spartan (no microwave or oven, very few dishes & cooking utensils). But if you want a neat jungle experience, with parrots, toucans, and a sloth in the tree -- TONS of birds, plus a private pool, great wi-fi, a good location and a very reasonable price, then this place will suit you fine. We were concerned there would be mosquitos since the bedroom had no AC and no screens, but we just closed the BR doors before dusk and kept them closed at night & we were never bothered. And yes, we WERE cool enough. The vegetation surrounding the house is lush and beautiful, and you can't see any other houses -- just the jungle. You won't be sleeping in, though, because the howlers and the birds will wake you every day around 6 - 6:30 AM. Then around sunset the bird sounds get quite intense again. We saw small green parrots every night, and saw toucans several evenings too, but sadly no monkeys. We had a sweet little hummingbird sitting on her tiny nest in the arecas by the pool, and twice we saw (and heard) the resident sloth climbing the big tree closest to the house. Sure did hear the howler monkeys though, every morning and sporadically throughout the day and evening, but never got a glimpse of them. Unfortunately we also heard some neighbors' barking dogs quite a few times at night. The upstairs bedroom (1 double bed, 1 single bed) is the better of the 2 bedrooms. The downstairs bedroom is smaller and has no view at all. Both bedrooms - and the upstairs lanai -- have ceiling fans. The bathrooms are about equal and very adequate, with nice showers. Note: This home is NOT for people with disabilities, as the walkway from car to house involves a series of 5 or 6 really tall (10" ??) steps. You could get by here with just bicycles, but if you have a car you may need 4 wheel drive to get up the very last part of the driveway. (Not sure, as ours was a 4x4, so we had no problem.) There is a big sliding gate, which you can lock if you wish. There's also a safe in the bedroom. As the house is at a dead-end maybe 1/3 mile off the road, it's VERY private; you'll find no one is ever walking or driving by. The driveway is located right next to the Duende Gourmet Market in the center of Playa Chiquita - great little store!"
