"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."

"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!"

"This house is everything that we expected. Amelie was a wonderful host and very accommodating for our needs for the four days we stayed in Puerto Viejo. We arrived in Puerto Viejo late on our arrival date, but she stayed at the house till we arrived and provided us a warm greeting and a tour of the house and grounds, More than enough space for two couples and could have had a third stay there as well with the extra room by the pool.
Yes, the pictures do justice for this property . . . it was exactly what I had imagined before our arrival. Beautifully appointed home and the extra amenities (especially the washer and dryer) was very helpful, as well as the on site caretaker.
We were a little disappointed by the lack of use of the ceiling fan in the master suite, but Amelie provide an extra fan from her home which was helpful. Bikes were provided to ride into town (about a 10 minute ride), but I would recommend walking to Banana Azul (about a 5 minute walk from the house) to get a taxi at night.
We could have explored Puerto Viejo more, but had a wonderful time during our stay, and look forward to the day that we return again. Thank you Amelie for such a great property."

"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! :)"
