About The Owner

We took over this beautiful place in April 2011, knowing the property already for a couple of years. We are living in Switzerland and spend a couple of months per year in the Magic Moon House. Our passion is travelling, living in a natural environment and we are true animal lovers. Puerto Viejo is the right place to be for us!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

You will understand us once you have spent a couple of nights at our house - falling asleep to the sound of the Ocean, waking up to the music of the birds...

What makes this house unique

Close to Puerto Viejo town, but still far away to get the right jungle feeling. The beachfront location is probably our most favourite benefit as it is so nice to be able to go for a swim, just steps from the house. Puerto Viejo area also offers a lot of great activities as well as nice restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat Hamilton from Thunder Bay Canada May 12, 2013

We had the time of our lives, the house and area of Puerto Viejo were fantastic, people were easy to get along with and willing to help anytime asked. The area is extremely laid back with lots of places to explore. The beaches were incredible with good for swimming and snorkeling.

The towns in the area are full of activity, restaurants and grocery stores plus you can bye fresh fish, fruit and vegetables without any problem.

Nina is very friendly and will give you good advice when needed plus help you out with anything you need.

If you are looking for a place that is not all caught up in the fast life this is the place to go, we will definitely be going back.

Magic Moon is exactly that. A magical, wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Magic Moon for 4 nights, and were so sad to have to leave! It is truly a spiritual, unforgettable place. Anja and her team at Magic Moon were very helpful in answering our every question and fulfilling any request we had with ease. The property is breathtaking, and our son loved climbing the giant mango tree, as well as exploring all of the beautiful plants and animals surrounding the house. Can't say enough great things about it.

Wonderful property.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was perfect for the most part. Beautiful views, sounds, property, location, and accommodations. Was confused why housekeeping was already cleaning everything up hours before check-out but besides that everything was amazing.

Two Couples and Two Weeks

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect spot for a family get away

  • 5 of 5

We made our first and I am sure not our last trip to Costa Rica with our 9 year old twins and my Mom and Dad who were visiting from South Africa. The house was perfect for our needs, with more than enough space for the 6 of us. The house was clean and had all the amenities we required. The views were amazing from the big expansive deck, both during bright sunny days and thunderstorms at night and early mornings. Every night we watched as the monkeys balanced across the telephone wires much to our amusement. Silver, the gardener was very helpful and was even kind enough to get us some coconuts and open them for us. The proximity to town was perfect for us, not too close to be bothered by the hussle and bussle but a short drive or bike ride away. We will be back for sure!
