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.

Pagosa Springs

A Great Base for the Southern Carribean Coast

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to use as a base for travel around Puerto Viejo and the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The house was comfortable, well equipped and in a wonderful spot just across from the ocean. While hanging out on the porch or sleeping in the master bedroom, the waves crashing onto the shore are a great feature! A fine VRBO property!

This is a beautiful home. The windows, wide open spaces, and location are perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for a twelve-day vacation. Our adult son shared seven of it and wished he'd been able to stay the entire time---while we would have preferred to never leave. Access to town and supplies is convenient and easy, the local people we met were friendly and helpful, the homeowners are on site and thoughtful (easy to reach by email and response time is quick for suggestions or answers to questions), and there is a housekeeper that comes every few days and does a great job. Ask about transport to and from the airport, we had a driver take us from San Juan who was recommended by the homeowners. He was very helpful and drove us to get supplies on our way. The beds are comfortable, and there are enough towels and linens. Washer and dryer were appreciated. We ate at both restaurants within walking distance and had very good meals at each (red snapper the best choice IMO). Mainly we bought fresh fish in town at Mopri...a local restaurant that also sells fresh to the public...Seabass, warm-water lobsters, and snapper...other varieties we did not have time to try. There is a grocery store a short walk up the street with produce, and most other items, plus a produce truck comes around most days with the driver announcing himself as he passes by...with household doors and windows open you can't miss him. The kitchen is stocked with enough equipment, and we had wonderful, healthy meals. The beach is wild and beautiful, not crowded, and only a few steps from the house. Tropical sounds and waves were a serenade that took every last bit of stress away. We went river rafting, on a jungle hike to see waterfalls and sloths, lazed around in the hammocks, laughed at the sound of howler monkeys and roosters, took long walks on the beach, and left rejuvenated. Thank you for this beautiful home...we'll be back!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I rented the house for 5 nights for a quick getaway. The owner was prompt and helpful in every conversation we had, and was very accommodating. The house itself is fantastic, and we had no complaints. It is a quick walk or cheap tax to town but it is far enough away to feel peaceful. There are a few restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity as well if you don't want to go to far. The yard is much bigger and nicer than you can see from the pictures, and just across the road is the beach. You have ocean views from upstairs through the trees, and the sound of nature and the waves is constant and relaxing.

Great house in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It had plenty of room - more than we needed for the two of us. The house is separated from the beach only by a gravel road. Beach access was just across that road. There was an outdoor shower in the yard which was nice for washing off the sand. The front porch was a great place to stay out of the sun and still enjoy the sound of the waves. The kitchen was well equipped (no microwave though) and had almost everything we needed (a large bowl for salad would be a good addition). It was nice to have a great non-stick pan for cooking breakfasts.

The king sized bed was very comfortable. The mosquito nets were not needed when we were there. I never once saw a mosquito but there were little no-see-ums just at sunset that bothered me a little (but nothing more than a minor annoyance).

On our first day the water pump for the hot water quit working and the owners were there immediately to get it fixed. On the second day, I locked myself out. The owner's mother lives next door and she was very kind to let me back in. The house does have a security system. The gates on the yard both lock as well so we felt very secure.

You can walk into the town on the beach but it would be 30-45 mins or so. It is a 5 minute drive. There were lots of good restaurants - we really liked Lazlo's Catch of the Day. The gaucamole and ceviche at the Point (just 10 mins walk down the beach) was great. The beach BBQ on Sunday at Hotel Banana Azul (5 mins walk away) was also great.

We highly recommend this property.

We trully enjoyed our stay in this beautiful beach house.

afternoons/ nights at the front porch area were special and the host Maythemi and family were super welcoming and informative..

the house very comfortable and clean.

Cleaning lady (Liliann I think) was sweetheart and very helpful.

Kids had a fantastic time by the beach

We are definitely coming back to this house and this town.
