About the Property

Main House is 2 Bed/2 Bath + 2 Seperate Studio Apartments (optional rentals)

WELCOME TO PARADISE!!
We are so excited for you to experience our property and all that the Caribe Sur has to offer!!

HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR PROPERTY:
- DIRECTLY on the BEACH
- WILDLIFE ABOUNDS the yard between beach and house
- LUSH Landscape and fruit trees all around
- PRIVATE swimming POOL
- AIR CONDITIONING in MAIN HOUSE
- FAST and FREE WIFI
- EXCELLENT PRIVACY and SECURITY (fully gated and privacy fenced)
- CLEAN and FULLY Equipped (includes kitchen items and a washer/dryer)
- ONSITE bicycles and boogie boards available for FREE
- PROPERTY MANAGER lives just 3 houses away and is available 24/7, and will help you with excursion booking!

HERE ARE THE PARTICULARS:
This beachfront property is on the quieter North side of Puerto Viejo in the Playa Negra community.
The beach is just a few steps through the almond tree, coconut palm, and flower filled jungle yard!
And the property sits in the middle of a large bay with SPECTACULAR views in all directions!!
The beachfront is PRISTINE and PRIVATE!! You can walk and explore the beach and nearby jungle for hours of tranquility without being disturbed.

The property is well suited to host larger groups of friends and family but is also small enough to be an intimate retreat!
There is a STAND ALONE MAIN HOUSE with 2 beds/2 baths that sleeps 5 (4 in beds - with couch and a crib also available).
And there are TWO separate and fully equipped studio apartments in another building. Each studio apartment sleeps 1-3 people and has its own private sleeping, lounging, eating, kitchen, and bathroom space.

The main house and apartments have ALL things you need for a comfy stay, just like HOME!

There is a HUGE screened-in porch attached to the main house and facing the beach, complete with hammocks and a picnic table for many hours of enjoyment with the waves as your background noise!

**TIP: If you view our pictures on a computer (not a smart phone) in full page mode you will see them labeled at the bottom, so you can get a better feel for the property, house and apartment layout. **

If you want maximum privacy, rent the entire property (even if you won't use the apartments) for only a small amount more than the main house alone. **This is the option most of our guests prefer!**
Posted price estimate is for main house only; inquire for full property pricing.

ABOUT THE AREA:
In Playa Negra, there is a small grocery store, a multipurpose store, and two bar/restaurants within a very short walk from the property (less than .5 miles).
If you desire some social interaction, the center of town (Puerto Viejo de Talamanca) is just a breath taking jaunt down the beach or road. 15 minutes on foot, 5 minutes on bike.
Keep going South past Puerto Viejo and you can visit all of the beaches that the Caribe Sur has to offer! Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, and Manzanillo...and all the hidden treasures in-between!
There is a bus stop at the end of our road and the bus can take you anywhere along the coast and in/out of San Jose! Cabs are also available 24/7.

In Puerto Viejo and beyond, you will find a plethora of eateries suitable to every palate and lots of live music, shops, and brilliant locals and international visitors. There are several grocery stores, pharmacies, internet cafes, car, bike and scooter rentals, tour and excursion offices, and banks.
There are endless things to do in the area of Puerto Viejo!! There are zip line jungle tours, yoga classes, several great animal rescue centers and sanctuaries to visit, fishing expeditions, snorkeling, surf lessons, Caribbean cooking classes, guided jungle hikes to beautiful waterfalls, horse back riding on the beach, permaculture and organic farming tours, and tours through the indigenous lands by the native BriBri tribe.

Susana, our amazing property manager, will help you learn your way around and plan excursions as you desire!

Come and relax as our guest for an unforgettable Caribbean experience in a genuine tropical paradise!!
