Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa Ambar is just perfect! we stayed here in May 2014. Me and my family had a great time, the house is beautiful, nice decoration, big rooms and very comfortable, has all you need! The pool and surroundings are great, close to grocery stores and restaurants. And the beach in walking distance, worth to rent a bike to visit different locations. We are already planning our holidays for next year at Casa Ambar. Thanks to Evi and Monica for all their help planning our trip!

Beautiful jungle hideaway but a little hot

  • 4 of 5

This house is really just as it looks in the pictures. It is a clean, beautiful property and the property managers are superb - very accommodating and helpful. Reasons for 4 starts instead of 5: It was quite hot as there is no A/C - its all open air (which, I know, its Costa Rica - but there wasn't a whole lot of breeze because you are surrounded by thick flora).The ceiling fans are helpful and thank goodness for the pool out back (which was absolutely PRISTINE) but we found it a bit hard to cool off at night lying in bed. Maybe some more plug - in fans would be helpful. Also - beds are EXTREMELY firm - so if you need a soft bed - this is not the rental for you. Very short walking distances to restaurants, grocery and the beach was great. This is definitely a true jungle experience - listening to all the animals from the house is really neat.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very difficult time deciding on a place to stay. We looked at hundreds of locations and rentals. Once we decided to book Casa Amabar, we spent the weeks before our holiday looking at the pictures of the house and counting down the days until we arrived. I feared that they house would not live up to the pictures, or that the location would be lame or that the walk to the beach would be to long...

Once we arrived, it became apparent that we had made the right decision. Our hosts were organized, and offered a warm welcome. The village was close and the walk to the beach was a beautiful trip through town and down a short trail through the trees. Most importantly, the house was AMAZING! Casa Ambar is certainly one of the nicest houses in the entire area. The setting is very private and the pool was well cared for and vital when it came to keeping my 10 year old happy. Only one thing to keep in mind, the jungle animals party all night! The monkey calls and never ending bird noises are hilarious and they take some time to get used to. Being that the house has screened walls, you feel like you are at one with the jungle. This is obviously not a complaint, it's an awesome feature of the house. Just be ready to adjust to living in the jungle. Rent this house!

Highly recommend this place...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house in hopes that some friends may join us, but it ended up just being the two of us. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was fantastic. Just a short bike ride away from the busy town of Puerto Viejo. We much enjoyed being in the beautiful and peaceful Playa Chiquita. We found many amazing restaurants just a short walk to the main road. Seafood, pizza and a fun little Portuguese place with live music. The little grocery store was not gourmet, but provided for our basic needs. We did rent bikes there for the weeks and did not feel like we needed a car. We thoroughly enjoyed the private pool. The open air feel of the house really allowed us to embrace the jungle. It felt a little like Glam-ping (glamorous camping). We loved watching the howler monkeys jump from tree to tree. We were also greeted daily by roosters. I would love to rent this place again.

Casa Amber

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this beautiful home,we were 5 adults and we loved the swimming pool, the home has a geat yard. We got to listen to the howler monkey every morning. saw lot of birds and other animals. The house is an open air home with screens and is very nice and modern. There is even an alarm system, if you feel you need to use it. We only used when we were away. It is in the jungle but there are other home around you. Town is not to far away, but to far to walk. You can walk to the beach takes about 10 minutes. Love this home and would stay here again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Ambar for 9 nights and were very happy. The description of the house exactly matched what we got. The house is spacious, clean and the gardens(and pool) are well maintained. The bedrooms are large with ceiling fans, we were never to warm at night. The pool is actually bigger than it looks in the pictures. The housekeeper came in half way through our stay to changed the towels and linens, there were also beach towels provided. We woke to the sound of howler monkeys saw many birds including Tucans. The kitchen was great it had everything we needed and there was also a laundry room which was fantastic! The house has a security system and a safe that is inside a closet that can also be locked. It was totally private and quiet. We have already booked our stay again for next year! Evi and Monica are just a call away if there are any problems and questions, thank you!

Good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The house is set up very nice with 2 bedrooms on either side of the house with a large living space in the middle. In the backyard there is a nice size pool which was great to cool off in. There is lots of nature around. One morning the howler monkeys were right in the backyard. It is a good location and you can ride bikes from the house. The house is in need of some up keep and wasn’t a clean as other places we have rented. A little TLC and this place would be great.
