About Maythemi Salazar
My name is Maythemi and I was born and grew up in the same Playa Negra neighbourhood where my property is located. Currently I share my time between Panama and Costa Rica, this is why I decided to rent my beautifull beach house. My career is focused in eco-tourism and I like to share my passion and insider knowledge about the Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica with visitors.
Maythemi Salazar purchased this House in 2011
Why Maythemi Salazar chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
This property was passed down to me by my father who is indigenous of Talamanca. My family has the privilege to live right in front of the ocean in spacious gardens. What I like specially is that my property is in a tranquil residential neighborhood on a quiet sandy beach surrounded by lush nature, and still less than a mile away from the center of Puerto Viejo with its many restaurants, live music scene, shops and super markets. My village is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnical community with many family owned businesses, artists and holistic health therapists.
What makes this House unique
I designed my house with large windows and folding or sliding doors which you can open up wide to the sun light and the sea breeze. There is a beautiful view to the ocean and a big garden which offers privacy. A pletoria of many different activities and services are available, for example thai massage, relaxing massage, craneo sacral therapy can be arranged for your convenience at the house, as well as a private Caribbean cooking class or the services of a chef. The well equipped kitchen gives you the comfort and freedom to cook or bake when ever and what ever you desire. The airy Yoga Gazebo situated on the same property offers the opportunity to practice yoga with a view to the sea, with classes at a special discount fee for our guests.

Great beachfront location, close to town, secure, comfortably luxurious, and roomy
After our long drive from San Jose airport we were greeted by the home owner who was available to give us a quick tour and orientation to the home. The house is much larger than the pictures appear, at least to me. I would say 2200 square feet. The house has a gorgeous master bedroom with its own patio and Hammock over looking the front lawn and the ocean. There's also a second bedroom upstairs with two twin beds. And the third bedroom is on the first floor with a double bed. The kitchen and dining room area are large enough to comfortably prepare your meals and eat with your guests. The owner was available through the messaging service on VRBO.com and through WhatsApp whenever we needed her. She gave great suggestions on where to eat and good snorkel spots. Unfortunately we only had five days to visit this great coastal town and I will need to come back again to finish all the things I did not get to do. Great vacation for the outdoorsy type. One last good thing about the location of this Home is it is about 1/8 of a mile away from a small resort which was a great place to go to grab a taxi into town or rent bicycles and any beach gear. When I say small resort I mean small. There is very little traffic on the road by the house. So little traffic that we saw A sloth crossing the road in front of the house and only two cars went by during this time. I would definitely stay here again because I felt safe being close to other folks near town but also it felt like my own private home.
Above and beyond
We had an amazing experience and Maythemi and her mother are amazing hosts! The property is gorgeous, steps from the quiet and beautiful black sand beach, and the hospitality we felt was warm and friendly, with all the help we could have hoped for and much more. The yoga classes in the studio out back were a great experience, the outdoor shower was so convenient for quick trips to the beach, and the hammock relaxation was unmatched :).
Easy access to restaurants and grocery stores, lovely front yard with flowers and daily hummingbird visits, and a well-equipped kitchen that let us prep our own meals with no problems. We had a bit of an adventure with a power outage in the neighborhood, but candles were provided and getting power back felt like an exciting celebration!
Don’t hesitate to book this wonderful property - it was perfect for our mission of extreme relaxation!
Amazing place to stay!
We love our week here. Everything is as described. This is a great find!
What an AWESOME experience!!!
Wonderful house, close to everything and soooo comfortable. The open air, the waves crashing and all the interesting animal noises made for a wonderful experience while lying in bed. Our hosts were amazing and there was nothing we could have needed that the house did not have. A million stars to our hosts and their beautiful home!
Amazing beach home
Can’t say enough about this beautiful house. Located right across from Playa Negra, the sound of the waves and ocean breeze are ever-present. The House was beautiful, with georgeous woodwork, comfortable beds, and bonus hammocks. It was just a quick car ride, walk or bike ride into the main town. The owners were very responsive and helpful. We stayed for two weeks in this incredible home and would return in a heartbeat.
Excellent location in quiet neighborhood.
The house is well equipped. It is very spacious and is just steps away from the beach.
The owners were very helpful.
