Séjour en pleine jungle!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons fait un voyage de 2 semaines au costa rica avec nos 3 adolescents. Cette maison a été notre préférée des 3 que nous avons loués dans ce voyage. (et la moins cher en plus)

Nous avions loué un 4X4 et j'avoue que c'est assez essentiel car la pente pour se rendre à la maison est pratiquement infaisable avec un véhicule 2 roues motrices.

Sérieusement, cette maison c'est WOW! On se sent réellement en vacance et complètement déconnecté de notre quotidien.

Les murs sont principalement faits de vitres, donc on sent comme si on vivait à l'extérieur. On entend continuellement les bruits de la forêt tropicale et c'est magique. Il y a des singes tout autour, des paresseux, des iguanes et toute une panoplie d'oiseaux tropicaux.

On a la vue sur la mer avec une grande terrasse super confortable.

Il y a deux salle de bains, deux chambres à coucher et une cuisine dans laquelle rien ne manque.

Les propriétaires vivent en bas et sont super gentil et prêts à répondre à nos demandes.

Il y avait une énorme "grappe" de bananes que les propriétaires avaient mis à notre disposition. Belle attention.

Le petit village de Puerto viejo est vraiment sympatique et accessible à pieds x 20 minutes ou environ 4 minutes d'auto. La superbe plage de playa cocles est à 10-15 minutes de marche. On peut aussi se rendre en auto et se stationner sur le bord de la route.

La maison est sécuritaire et puisque les propriétaires sont pratiquement toujours là, on a pas à s'inquiéter.

Notre seule déception au final a été de ne pas louer plus longtemps.

Beautiful views and helpful, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home overlooking the Carribean surrounded by rainforest greenery, birds, and wildlife. Lots to do and see in Talamanca and very relaxing just to enjoy the views (or listen to the rain) from the deck. Jeff and Sherry couldn't have been nicer, the place was well-equipped and lovely, and the Chocolate tour was fascinating. You do need 4wheel drive to make it up the steep driveway, but the views are worth it!

Beautiful home & great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 1/2 weeks here in Dec.-Jan. 2015. Beautiful home with stunning ocean views. Open layout with plenty of space for our family of 5 adults. Great quiet location, except howler monkeys and birds! Lots of wildlife!

Jeff & Sherry were excellent hosts.

Highly recommend staying here and we'll stay here again on our next visit.

Excellent Stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the area and tried a couple of rental homes...this one was by far our favorite. It has a great layout with tons of balcony for viewing the ocean as well as huge variety of wildlife that comes to visit or resides in the huge trees just off the deck. The beds were very comfortable with good air flow in the rooms to let you sleep well. Washrooms had some very nice sized showers. We made full use of the well equipped kitchen and dining areas often. The property is a beautiful cacao plantation that hosts a chocolate tour a few times a week, being a chocolate lover, the tour was very informative and tasty. The hosts were really great and accommodating and gave us some great tips on dining out...Lazlo's!!! The beaches in the area are spectacular. Cocles beach is a 10 minute walk down the hill or our favorite Punta Uva is about a 10 minute drive. The local markets are also a short drive. All in all one of the best vacations I have had. If you are looking for a place where you can get the jungle experience, the beach and unbeatable view...THIS is it! Hopefully we will get back there again.

Car: recommended

The drive from the main road to The Mango Walk while a short distance does have some portions that are steep and rocky and require 4 wheel drive. For this reason, 4 wheel drive transportation is a must. One could certainly walk or bike, but this may prove challenging with luggage or at night. Local taxis are available but one may not always be able to secure a 4 wheel drive taxi.
