Why Owner / Property Manager chose Costa Rica

Playa Chiquita is an ideal area to relax, enjoy nature without being far from everything. Its beaches are full of pools that makes the place unique. Most of the residents are families and people of all nationalities. In our street lived several families of howler monkeys and sloths, toucans come every evening to eat the seeds of the trees. Without a doubt, the best neighborhood in the world!

Carribean Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The casa was perfect, exactly as advertised. Paola and her family live a few hundred yards behind the rental and were available for questions, recommendations and help. We loved the exotic jungle sounds of birds, insects and howler monkeys. A three toed sloth hung out in front of the house one Sunday afternoon. We stayed for a month and had time to explore Cocles, Puerto Viejo, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva and Manzanillo. Puerto Viejo was the best for groceries and we liked the Punta Uva beach the best. A visit to the Jaguar Rescue Center is a must. We also loved our jungle tour, with Abel, at the Manzanillo Reserve. We did not have a car but found it easy to get around using the bus that comes by every couple of hours. Everyone rides a bicycle as the roads are paved and flat.

Private yet accessible

  • 4 of 5

Spent a short 4 days. Excellent value. Paola is charming in every way. Fluent in French, English and Spanish, she happily directed us to areas of interest. The property sits just in front of her own and while properly locked up one feels secure without barbed wire or razor tape like one sees in other places. Birds (wood rail, toucans etc. ) and other wildlife are abundant (sloths, howler monkeys, peccary) and easily seen from the front porch where one cooks and eats. Easily recommend as affordable convenient lodging for 2-3. Thanx.

Wonderful house and family!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering visiting the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica I highly recommended staying at Paola's. My boyfriend and I are still in Costa Rica but I felt compelled to write a review (also the first review I have ever written). She and the house are amazing!! The house is clean and located off the main road about 100m so you don't hear any traffic. Paola and her husband Juanka live behind the house about 80m but will give you all the privacy you would like, or gladly soacialzie with you. We are from California and we were going to be out of the country for a televised event we were really looking forward to, so we asked Paola if she knew of somewhere nearby that might be playing the fight. Unfortunately there weren't any places within bike riding distance, so we figured we would miss it. Then Paola came by the front house and told us Juanka and her were going to go watch it if we would like to join! So we all hopped in the car and drove about 15-20 minutes up the road where we all ate, drank, and hung out like old friends at a local bar. It made us feel very welcomed and adjusted, which can be hard in a different country. Paola gave us tips on everything from taxi transportation and renting bikes, to beaches to visit and activities to do (and also how much things should cost so we didn't get ripped off). This family and this house are all wonderful and make you feel right at home like you've been here your whole lives. I wish we could have stayed here the entire trip, but unfortunately the house had already been booked and was not available for us, so what did Paola do..? She helped us find another place to stay in the area and in our price range!! Thank you Paola (and Juanka) for making us feel right at home!! It's been a real pleasure getting to know you and your family!

Perfect rental to explore the carribeans

  • 5 of 5

This isn't your average rental - it has everything you could wish for - it is clean, very well located (200m from the fantastic playa chiquita) and Paola and Juanca are the best host you'll ever have. They know everything about the region, what activities to do, where to eat, shop, rent bikes ... and they can even help you get better deals from local agencies.

A bit more about the house itself: we absolutly loved the outside kitchen, the hammock hovering over the garden (which is by the way filled with sloths, toucans and monkeys), the beautiful and very quiet room and the inside bathroom with a nice shower with hot water.

We stayed there for a month and met a lot of people renting houses in the area - they all agreed this is by far the best deal you can get.

We will come back !

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Chiquita for 3 nights and I wish we had booked a full week. Paola and her husband were excellent hosts, super friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The location is great, quiet but close to beautiful beaches and a short walk to a local grocery store and restaurants. The cabin was exactly what we were hoping for. I especially loved the outdoor kitchen and the hammock overlooking the garden. Everything was clean, the bathroom had extra towels and hot water, the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need to cook your own meals. I absolutely hope to make it back and would recommend this rental to anyone planning to visit the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. Well worth it!

Casa Chiquita = AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect. It's secluded, yet close to delicious restaurants and a short walk through lush jungle to a beautiful, secluded beach. Paola and Juanka are great hosts who were responsive to our needs and super informative about the area. The house is also only 4 km from Puerto Viejo, which makes grocery shopping easy and convenient. The casa has a fully stocked kitchen, very useful mosquito netting around both beds, a warm indoor shower, and a convenient outdoor shower, and a fabulous outdoor patio with a unique jungle view (we spotted monkeys and sloths from the patio). The house was cleaned midway through our trip and our towels were refreshed (which was nice because the climate really doesn't permit them to dry all the way). The internet was not working during our stay, but I assume they will get it fixed shortly -- plus it doesn't ever hurt to have a few days unplugged :). Stay here folks. Just do it.
