"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."

"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."

"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."

"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..."
