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!

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.

Fantastic Vacation rental - Just as described!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights at this vacation rental and were thrilled to discover that everything was exactly as described in the listing. The home is beautiful and spacious, and the kitchen is very functional and was well-stocked. The house has laundry facilities available for use - a hige bonus- and a charcoal grill in the backyard that was perfect for our home-cooked meals.The location is fantastic- beautiful private garden and pool and a close walk or bike ride to everything you could ever need. Plenty of wildlife around and some very friendly neighbourhood dogs that come to visit. The local beach is beautiful and very quiet - but if you are looking for more action it is only a short jaunt into Puerto Viejo. The local groccery store is at the end of the street and literally has everything you need - we rented bicycles for a couple of days at $6.00/day and had a great time exploring the nearby towns and beaches. Evi was very helpful throughout the whole process - all in all a great spot and a great experience.

Pura Vida!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

we just returned from a 5 night stay at this wonderful vacation home. We can't imagine a better place to stay near Puerto Viejo. The house is literally the best location you can imagine, just a few minutes away from everything, beach, restaurants, grocery - all is in walking distance. you even dont need a car. Evi did a great job showing us the house and explaining everything and was all in all very helpful, even booking tours for us, she had an answer to ALL our requests through our stay.

The house is very clean and maintained, and lovely decorated. We even could use the brand new washer + dryer to do our own laundry. (we didnt expect that)

on top we got a cleaning in between our 5 night stay. Perfect relaxing, coming home from the beach and have fresh towels, all clean and fresh. We enjoyed every minute.

There is no A/C, but the house is fresh and good ventilated,doors and windows are screeened. Kitchen is very good equipped. 2 great sofas to hang out in front of the tv in the evenings. in the daytime we went to snorkel in the blue clear caribbean ocean, took a nap, and then we hang out in the pool.....spotting tucans, sloths or monkeys.

there are many bugs and other jungle creatures you can watch monkeys, butterflies, hummingbirds, sloths and many other animals just outside in the yard !! If you want a four-star resort with all the comforts of home and no insects, look toward the Pacific side of the country. For an authentic, unique, unmatched Costa Rican experience and still with a significant amount comforts, choose Casa Ambar without hesitation. An amazing vacation home--we hated to leave and can't wait to return next year.
