  • Great House

    "Loved this house. Perfect place to stay as close to town and the beach. The cleaning service was really good. Only thing I would recommend would be a security light on the gate as it is very dark. Unfortunately two of our party were robbed just outside the gate which did shake our confidence about walking up and down the lane. However the house itself is very secure and it did not ruin the holiday."

  • Pura Vida!

    "What an awesome place! We stayed in the BirdHouse for 3.5 weeks in Feb 2015 and loved it! 5 of us in total, one couple downstairs and my family of 3 upstairs. We had plenty of space so we weren’t in each others way and when we wanted to get together to eat or play cards we all sat together in the kitchen. Pamela and Carter are wonderful hosts, very caring and attentive to details. We also watched Carters band play a few times in town, not to be missed! Their 4 dogs were very loveable, and kept an eye on things around the property. On the property we saw and heard tons of sloths, agoutis,geckos, lizards, huge butterflies, fire flies, frogs, bats, cool looking bugs, saw one snake, cool spiders in webs and only one spider in the house (not bad considering I am terrified of spiders) and my husband counted over 100 different birds! Toucans, collared aracaris , parrots, kiskadees , oropendolas, manakins & slaty-tailed trogons to name a few! The plants on the property are beautiful and feels like you are walking through a tropical park! We did not rent a car, we would walk into town every day and took a taxi back ( 2000 colons or $4 one way for a taxi from town). Puerto Viejo was very laid back, had the reggae vibe to it, never once did we feel unsafe…we all took turns going to town on our own to get groceries or just wander around…no worries! We also rented bikes one day and rode to Manzanillo and saw TONS of wildlife along the way. It was the most relaxing, laid back vacation I have been on. Everyone we met was so calm, Pura Vida really described what we felt and experienced! I highly recommend Puerto Viejo and Finca Loco Natural to everyone :)"

  • Spring Break Fun

    "My sons (9 and 11) and I spent 5 days here on their spring break. We had a wonderful adventure and really enjoyed the accommodations. The open air house was very nice and provided a wonderful experience for us. We used the house as a base for our adventures that included zipping, snorkeling, boogie boarding, bike riding and gelato. To and from Puerto Viejo was easy and we used a combination of bikes, beach walks and taxis. Pamela was a wonderful host and provided just the right amount of assistance and information while leaving the decisions and schedule up to us."

  • 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!"
