Wonderful place to enjoy the natural beauty of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica!
"My husband and I were lucky to spend a week at Casa de Earlybirds in late September, which, by the way, is a wonderful time to visit. We had almost no rain and the beaches to ourselves. The layout of the house is great: up on the second floor looking out over the jungle toward the beach. The design is nice, too; lots of wood and interesting items decorate the space. The open living area allows the sights and sounds to be with you always...the roar of ocean waves, beautiful plants and the monkeys and birds. The toucans squabble in the trees in front of the house, so we got some pictures of these fabulous birds. The howler monkeys visited a few times in large family groups. My favorite time of day was early morning with coffee in the protected "outdoor" living room. Once the sun was up, so was I; not wanting to miss anything! (my husband slept in!) The property is within a protected wildlife area, and our wanderings around the neighborhood provided as much nature viewing as any excursion we took! We rented bikes in Puerto Viejo, and rode between the different beaches along the road. We enjoyed swimming at the beach just outside our gate. Favorite restaurants: Cool Calm Cafe in Manzanillo, Selvin in Punta Uva, and Carribean Coffee shop...(the tour of their organic chocolate farm is fantastic). The owners of Casa de Earlybirds are easy to deal with and the caretaker downstairs is helpful. All in all, this was the best week of our 3 week trip to Costa Rica."

"We spent almost two weeks at Casa Del Caribe the first of this month (June 2015). It was an awesome place that was exactly what we were looking for. The owner was extremely helpful while we were booking the house and answered all of our questions very quickly. He went above and beyond with helpful information. Once we got there we met the next door neighbor, Freddy. He was also very helpful. We actually hired him to take us on a few guided tours. There are a lot of great tours, just talk to Freddy. It was after dark when we arrived by taxi. It was a little difficult to find even following Roberts instructions. His instructions were great, it is just a little hard to find. But, if you follow his instructions you will get there. Just go right past Johanna's Soda and take a right in the little lane off of the alley and keep walking. Her soda is not on the main road. You have to turn right off of the main road and keep going until you see her soda. Then turn right in the alley right behind it. We enjoyed the openness of the house, but also felt safe since we were able to lock the stairway gate behind us when going to bed. It is also very nice that the Super Cocles grocery store is right there within walking distance. It was also nice to have the bicycles to use as well. We used them most days. The house is exactly what we were looking for...very nice and clean and one with nature. It is a very open floor plan. It was also nice having the safe to lock up our valuables when we weren't there. We walked or biked to the beach several times per day. One of the last days we were there we saw a whole group of howler monkeys on our way to the beach. They were just hanging out in the trees doing their thing. We watched them for 30 minutes.
This is a great place to stay and if we ever make it back to Costa Rica we will definitely try to stay at Casa Del Caribe again."

"Our family, plus two others, rented Casa del Mango for a week long vacation in Cahuita! We were 3 adults, and 5 kids (ranging in age from 8-18). Everyone had a blast! The hosts are awesome (thank you Sara and Nando) and there is always someone available on the property to help. The pool and gardens are gorgeous. The house is clean and comfy! We never ran out of things to do - beach, national park, sloth sanctuaries, you name it. This is the perfect home base for a Costa Rican vacation on the Caribbean coast!"

"La Patita de Manzanillo is an extraordinary place! I spent a couple of days with my family and we all love it! The house is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the beach through the main road which is surrounded with vegetation and beautiful pictoric houses. We could see monkeys while walking on the main road. The house has everything needed, bedding, towels and kitchen utensils, even drinking water is supplied for your stay, that was a plus for us as we were very thirsty when we arrived. The house is very well maintained and clean, with a few hammocks around to rest and enjoy the jungle that surrounds the house. I loved to wake up in the middle of the jungle!!! Yari and Sita were extremely helpful, very kind people to deal with. we arrived quite late at night and Yari was still awaiting for us. Sita responded my request wishing a few hours and we were able to arrange my stay even when it was a last minute request. The only detail to make it perfect would be to arrange a deal with the owner of the property next to the beach to allow access to guests of la Patita through his path to the beach but that doesn't make my review less than 5 stars because really the place is a paradise. Thank you Sita for allowing me to have this beautiful experience!!"
