"Everything is as stated in the VRBO ad: a beautiful 3 bedroom home right on the beach; comes with a wonderful host (Anja) who lives not far away and is VERY helpful with all your tourist needs. We flew into San Jose, rented a car and took the day driving to the house. You will live amongst the locals as there are NO resorts or large hotels here. The small town about one km away has many shops, restaurants and grocery stores for everything you need. So many things to see and do, that we could have stayed longer to enjoy it all - animal rescue centers, jungle/tribe tours, many, many beaches (black and white) with amazing snorkeling, national parks, a trip to Panama (20 minutes to the border), deep sea fishing, etc, etc.....We have always stayed in all inclusive resorts but this holiday was very different from that....this will probably be the way I will travel from now on. I fell in love with Costa Rica - this trip will stay in my heart forever. Please feel free to contact me for any other info!"

"We had an amazing time here. It was our fifth trip to Puerto Viejo and first time staying here. Michela is an awesome owner. The house was perfectly clean and well maintained. Walking distance to town which was awesome. We had six people staying and we loved being able to ride our bikes to surf and to hit the shops, restaurants and bars. We loved the big windows and there were so many tropical birds flying around the yard. Very nice tall trees as well made it private. Gated house in a safe neighborhood. We all loved it."

"I rented The Bounty with a group of my friends in June 2015. Not only was the house comfortable & clean, it was in the perfect location! The living room was cozy with a couch, two chairs, and a 4 top kitchen table. The kitchen had a gas stove with oven, plenty of counter space, and all the plates/cups/utensils you need. Unfortunaly the fridge was the kind that has an icebox on the top, so when you fill it the temp drops, & it won't freeze well. That's honestly my only complaint though! The rooms had nice sheets & good mattresses. The bathroom was clean & spacious. And most importantly, it has screens on the windows & plenty of fans! (We've sadly had an experience at a different rental house which didn't not have screens.... Bad news)
One of the best features is that it's a 45 second walk to the Caribbean ocean! Which is soooo warm year around!!! The Banana Azul is a resort down the same road The Bounty is on, about a 4minute walk away. This resort is really nice, pool, bar, restaurant, whole 9yards. They have bike rentals for $6 a day & they staff was so polite, inviting us to use all there amenities! With our bikes, we could now ride to the center of Puerto Veijo in 5min! (And the town of Puerto is awesome!) The Bounty has a fence around the property so our cars and our bikes were safe at night. They have clean towels to use, mats to lay out at the beach, noodles & bougie boards, and even 2 hoses to rinse the saltwater off after you swim.
The property manager Susan was great as well, recommending and even arranging activities for us in the area. Not only would I recommend this house to just about anyone visiting Costa Rica, I'll probably be back myself! :)"

"My boyfriend and I wanted to stay in a treehouse in the jungle and got more than we could of hoped for! The house is beautiful, inside and out and the landscaping and graciousness of our host only added to our incredible experience. We stayed for four nights and left wishing we were staying another four weeks. Carter was so welcoming and we enjoyed seeing his band perform in town twice while we were there! He was always available by phone or in person to answer questions, bring us fruit grown on the property or provide recommendations. He facilitated our zip lining tour and gave us very honest advice regarding other tours, which we were very grateful for. Every detail of the home is beautifully done and is only accentuated by the secluded jungle surroundings. We made 1-2 meals each day and the kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and kitchenware, including a coffeemaker, toaster, blender, etc. The beds were comfortable and the showers were hot! The outdoor shower and multiple clothes lines were also very much used and appreciated. The house is close to town and right across from the property is Playa Negra and a great beach bar called The Point which we went a few times (try the Red Snapper!). Overall, we would HIGHLY recommend this home or any of the others for rent on his property and would love to return in the future!"
