About Pamela and Carter

We try to offer our guests a unique place to enjoy the Caribbean coast and its wonderful beaches and jungle from our little piece of paradise.

Pamela and Carter purchased this house in 1992

Why Pamela and Carter chose Limon

We built our rental houses ourselves. We began 24 years ago, developing our property little by little. This house was made 6 years ago with wood from our farm and surrounding farms.

What makes this house unique

We offer privacy seldom experienced in a vacation rental. Our new pool has already been enjoyed by all our guests staying with us. Both our houses have their own entrance and garden spread throughout 8 acres of lush green forest and farm. We also have excellent birding and wildlife opportunities. Looking for a stunningly beautiful to hike? Our 200 meter nature trail takes you through the jungle down to the creek and upstream to a beautiful little waterfall.

The spectacular sights and sounds of the jungle await you from a bird's eye view on our unique 8 acre organic farm and rain forest reserve, the house was just built and includes a natural touch to wood working, including lumber harvested on the farm, birders and nature lovers will especially enjoy all the little things that make it a once in a lifetime experience, just 400 meters from the beach, but with an isolated privacy seldom attained when vacationing, take a step out of the ordinary and experience the Loco Natural Way of Life. Our new salt water swimming pool is also a great reason to stay with us!

Home and Property are nothing short of a work of art

Yes, pick this one! Pamela and Carter have two homes on this property (Bird House & Casa Mambo) and both are stunning. The grounds are lush with vegetation, flowers and fruit. The pineapple patch, the banana trees, and the sloths, make this property part of the experience that IS Costa Rica! The salt water pool is serviced daily and having it made all the difference in the world. The property is very close to Playa Negro, which is a beautiful black sand beach as the name indicates. It was a 10-15 minute bike ride to town and other nearby beaches. You are secluded on the gated property but so close to everything, I can't imagine there is a better place to stay!

I was having back issues and my vacation would have been completely ruined had it not been for the healing hands of Pamela, be sure to book a massage with her during your stay. She has a fabulous open area for the massage and is very reasonable. Pamela and Carter make you feel so welcome and check on you daily but are never intrusive. Pamela came the first morning of our stay with bananas and plantains. She helped arrange bike rentals, tours, transport to the airport and recommendations for beaches and restaurants. We watched Carter and his band play at Lazy Mon, he even gave us a shout out, the band was great and we had a wonderful time.

I honestly can’t say enough about this wonderful property, the homes and the hosts. It is (as the locals say) Pura Vida!

The Bird House. This is the perfect place to stay on your Puerto Viejo vacation. I am retired and this was my first trip to Costa Rica. I stayed there with my girlfriend, my son and one of his friends for two weeks – not long enough. The house is located at the end of a quiet road. The property is in the jungle and has been thoughtfully landscaped by the owners so that it is a jungle garden. It’s a 5 minute (or less) walk to the black sand beach, and then another 10 minutes (or so) down the beach to town. So, you’re close to town and still out on your own. Pamela and Carter are so kind and accommodating. They know the area and can provide plenty of suggestions for things to do if you ask. Carter built this house with love and it shows. Great open air kitchen, comfortable beds, nice second story lounging area with hammocks. The property has an access gate and once you’re through it, it’s a magical place. There is a way cool swimming pool, and even though the ocean is right there, we did use the pool – almost every day. Staying at the Bird House helped to make this the best vacation of my life. I will be back.

Jungle All Around

  • 5 of 5

What a find. Literally this place is in the jungle, sloths, giant stick insects, leaf bugs, iguanas, fireflies, toucans are all around you and yes you do get woken by howler monkeys every morning. The grounds are superb with lots to explore although we spent most of our time visiting places. Carter and Pamela are fantastic; around but not in your face and a great source of local information. Carter invited us to hear his band in a local bar and Pamela arranged for us to go zip lining and really went out of their way to make sure you are settled. The whole area is safe and we never had any issues, pretty much going all along the coast - there is so much to see and do. There is a bakery as you head out of town; go there for bread and lunch items for picnics.

If you like lots of comfort and the all inclusive hotel experience, go somewhere else. If you want to spend time in a jungle with more critters than you can imagine and have a proper family holiday with the kids stay here, its fantastic

Jungle Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are recently back from a fine trip to Costa Rica, which started with a 10 day stay at Finca Loco Natural. The property was a great introduction to the jungle and its wildlife. From the open kitchen we saw agouti, squirrels, howler monkeys and loads of birds, including Tawny-Crested Tanager, Purple-throated Fruitcrow, Montezuma and Chestnut-headed Oropendola, and many more. The property is a short walk to Playa Negro beach, and from there a few minutes to town. Pamela provided us with information on the local scene and arrangements for transportation to local attractions. Of these, we enjoyed the Great Green Macaw Reintroduction Station and a trip to a Bribri village on the Yorkin River. The house itself is beautifully crafted by Carter with local hardwoods, including some from the property. We would return in a heartbeat.

Beautiful grounds and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Carter and Pamela were very helpful. We were only there a few days but enjoyed our daily outings and exploration of the area. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highlights on the grounds were green poison dart frogs, fireflies, toucans and sitting in the hammocks enjoying the sounds of the jungle. The ocean and town is in walking distance and everyone was super friendly. Found many secluded beaches and loved going to manzanillo state beach at the end. The 15 km drive was amazingly beautiful.

We have several hundred meters of trails that loop through our farm and lead to the beach. The trails are ideal for wildlife viewing and birding.
