"We stayed at Casa Mambo for a week in early November and found it to be a very special place. There were 4 of us, but it would accommodate 6 easily, being 3 bedroom. The living spaces are completely open; the bedrooms have secure doors and comfortable beds with mosquito netting to sleep under. Although, I don't think we saw a single mosquito! We did see lots of frogs, and revelled in being surrounded by the sounds of insects and birds, especially in the early morning. You know you are in a special place when you see Keel-billed Toucans flying into the trees! Our hosts were very experienced, but also very low key. They made sure we had everything we needed, and gave us suggestions for things to do and see while there. I especially appreciated feeling like we were staying in a close-knit neighborhood. The house was well-equipped, and we enjoyed cooking there. There were fans in each of the rooms, but I would have loved a ceiling fan in both the living room and on the big covered deck. Would have made it even better! It was nice to be able to walk 10 minutes or so to the beach, and to the neighborhood restaurant and bar! The main town, with lots of restaurants and shopping, is an easy 20-25 minute walk away. A great place to chill out for a week."

"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 really enjoyed our time at Casa de la Musa. The rooms were comfortable, and we slept very well. If you want to Four Seasons or Hilton, this isn't the place for you. If you want a quiet, relaxing space that is romantic and private, this is it. You really need a car, but if you have one, everything is really close. One of the best restaurants in the area is close enough to walk. Everything else is just minutes away. One of the best aspects was the help we got from Mauricio's wife Anja, who is a tour agent. She set us up with some great things to do, and even hooked us up with some friends who gave us special tours. It was amazing. No doubt we would stay there again if we visit the area. D n J..."

"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."
