About Emmanuelle or Stephanie

Our family: Mera, Niek and our two kids Ives and Lana, are the proud owners of this piece of paradise called Villa Luz y Sombra. We bought the house as we fell in love with it., it has everything you want and need for a relaxing vacation. This second home is made of the most exceptional hardwood designed by a German architect. It sets in a beautiful tropical garden, where you are surrounded by monkeys, sloths, toucans and millions of tropical birds and butterflies. The villa is situated in a upscale and safe area, steps away from a white sanded paradise beach. We are living in The Netherlands and are very happy that Green Management is managing the property as we know they are taking good care of it. Their office is around the corner of the house so that is always handy as they can help you out with any questions you might have.

Why Emmanuelle or Stephanie chose Costa Rica

We bought this property as we fell in love with it. If you stay there we are sure you will feel the same as it is an excluding house with beautiful details as expected from a German architect. The area is beautiful and the house is walking distance from some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. It is also walking distance from some nice shops and fine restaurants. The wild life is amazing and when you sit on the veranda you can see the wild live passing by which is a magnificent experience.

What makes this house unique

The house is one of a kind and all is made from (hard) wood making it very natural and this is emphasized by the interior garden and the natural flow of air by the wind making it cool when it is hot and no air conditioning is required.

Gorgeous Home to Explore Puerto Viejo Area

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa de Luz y Sombra with another family. We were 4 adults & 4 young children total and all fit very comfortably in this house. The house itself is lovely, clean and comfortable. We had fans in each room and all slept well each night. The house is tucked right into the rainforest, and we were amazed with the location--we even saw two bright green & black poison dart frogs hopping in our yard upon our arrival! We also saw peccaries, lots of Blue Morphos, Opossums and Howler Monkeys from the spacious outdoor porch! We ate together outside on the deck, and it was a nice size--the kitchen had everything we needed to make meals in. The main part of the house is upstairs, but very child-friendly with gated stairways. Playa Chiquita and surrounding stunning beaches are not far away, and the town of Puerto Viejo is about a 5 minute drive away. Great spot! We all had a great time, and hope to come back!

Costa Rican Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica and stayed at the Villa Luz y Sombra and had a fantastic time! The house was gorgeous and right from the porch we saw hummingbirds, beautiful butterflies, red-eyed tree frogs, an agouti, and a two-toed sloth!. It is just a 5 minute walk to beautiful, uncrowded beaches. Emmanuelle, Shialo, and Green Management were very attentive to our needs, both before we arrived and during our stay. We (parents and 3 teenagers) were very happy with the whole experience and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Costa Rica jungle in style!

Playa Chiquita, 7 Km southern Puerto Viejo, as its name indicates, is a succession of small, white sandy beaches, certain of which are protected by a reef. It's a very friendly/family neighborhood with restaurants, grocery store (where you can find international products), ice cream shop, within walking distance. Our main office is located in Playa Chiquita, next to the school that says "Centro Educativo Playa Chiquita Punta Uva".
