Adobe in the jungle
My wife and I stayed in the adobe house for one night. It was awesome. We loved listening to the sounds of the jungle. John and Eric are great hosts. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to lots of rain. We decided to head to the other coast for the rest of the week.
Michael, thank you for those kind words and as luck would have it the next morning the sun was out and stayed out on and off for the next two days
You have 2 nights on the house if you ever come back this way
John and Eric are awesome hosts. A+
Living with nature, Wonderful!
This rental wasn’t far from the main road, the beach, nor the local community of Puerto Viejo, but all of those things could have been miles away when you’re sitting around Casa Corazon Del Mar! Even the neighbors which were only the equivalent of 2 lots away, were barely noticeable. All thanks to the natural rainforest and John’s grooming of the plants. We chose to just sit and enjoy our surroundings at least part of each day/evening and all day twice. Why go on tours when you can sit at home and watch bats, geckos, frogs, birds (too many kinds to mention) and best of all, sloths!!
One thing to remember when booking a stay at Casa Corazon Del Mar, is that this home has no screens in the windows. In a way it was like camping because not only are you living with nature, but it is living with you. We were not bothered with mosquitoes at all and the netting around the bed insured that we had no bugs bothering us while we slept (unlike the tents we slept in over the years!), but there were spiders (non invasive and cool to watch) geckos, praying mantis etc that lived with us. Occasionally a large flying bug would zoom through the house but so would hummingbirds! A green toed red frog lived in the foliage between our living room and pool and would often give us sass even though he was only the size of my thumb 😄�. These things make this vacation home an experience, not just a place to stay.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this vacation home and didn’t want to leave. Thank you John and Eric for sharing with us and being such wonderful hosts 😘�
A Very Special Place
Home in the Dome. Tranquility enveloped us in this unique and special place. Nestled in this thoughtfully landscape rain forest property we found the perfect ingredients for some much deserved R&R. The sights and sounds of the jungle surround you, sunlight filters through the tree canopy overhead, resident sloths demonstrate the proper pace for regaining a sense of leisure and ease. And of course the Dome, well it's like being inside a hug. As wonderful as the surroundings and the dome are it was the gracious, patient and caring hospitality of our hosts John and Eric that made this a truly special, in the best way possible, experience. They are the gold standard.
We are now back home in the chilly and wet Bay Area. The glow of casa corazon del mar and the warmth of our hosts will see us through the remnants of winter.
Thank you John and Eric!
Renee S. and Mike B.
We are so touched by your review
Thank you so much for these kind words
We are humbled and want you to know we wish every guest was as easy as you both were and such a joy to have around us
We really hope to see you again and you can’t beat that massage you got
Aryuvedic massages are the best
Sending big hugs to you both
John and Eric
My wife and I recently stayed in the dome for a little over 2 weeks. It almost seems surreal now, a flawless experience. The owners John and Eric were nothing short of awesome. Very passionate about the property, taking every opportunity to share local knowledge and make sure our stay was flowing smoothly. They consistently made every effort possible to ensure our comfort.
The location is perfect, definitely 5 star. Set back in the Costa Rican jungle, we were just a 5 min walk away from the quietest beach we have ever seen, other beaches just a short ride away, and a 15 min walk to the grocery store and all the shops in town. There is a definite energy to the place which has infused a lasting impression on us. From the unique styled living in the adobe home, the many natural wonders, to the friendly locals who never hesitated to engage. This journey for us was unparalleled. We have no doubt that we will return. Thank You John and Eric, keep doing what you do!! Darcy and Trish
Hosting you both was such a joy. You were so kind and so easy to make happy and you both appreciated all the things that surround us in here in paradise
Let us know the dates for you next return in the new house
Really look forward to seeing you both again soon
Unique quiet property in a fun area
You’re in the jungle when you stay at this property! It’s open air, which means sometimes the little creatures come to you, like lizards and prying mantis. We used the kitchen for breakfast everyday and slept great locked up in the little bedroom which is covered by the “veranda “. When it rained a ton, you couldn’t hear it from the room. A baby sloth was up in the trees in the path to the house. We enjoyed the beaches to the south and north. Good bakery/coffee spots in Puerto Viejo and tourist shops. I loved the sloth sanctuary and paid big bucks for the behind the scenes tour. I saw the NICU with 15 baby sloths that had been brought in for various reasons, like injury or abandonment. Unfortunately they will become permanent residence of the place because no one can teach a baby sloth to be an adult sloth but it’s mother.
Amy, first of all thank you for staying with us we appreciated all those who choose to stay with us. However, both John and I are shocked to receive a 4 star review from you... it is the first non 5 Star review we have received.
We feel that we went above and beyond what most hosts do in this industry.
You stayed a brief 3 nights with us and when you arrived you were greeted with a bowl of fresh fruit, coffee for the morning and of course alcohol so you could have a drink after having driven to get to us
Fresh cut flowers decorated the dome and we greeted you at your car to bring in your bags
We answered all your questions, were available 24/7 made reservations at restaurants and more things that are far too many to list
I’m just not sure what we could have done to have made you any happier or at least happy enough to have given us a 5 Star review
That being said, thank you for the short stay with us
John and Eric
