  • Great time!

    "We went with our 5 and 6 year old children. We all had a wonderful time. Lots of beach and pool time. Weather was amazing. Mark was very nice and helpful. house is much better than advertised. Lots of outdoor living space which also means lots of wildlife (inside and out 😊). Saw many howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, giant crickets, lizards, a giant snake, dart frogs, toucans, macaws etc... Highly recommend!"

  • Highly recommend and would return in a heartbeat..

    "Had 9 wonderful days. Property is extremely well kept, wildlife spectacular, pool area just wonderful and only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Anything we needed was immediately handled by Zvezda, Pablo or Sandra. Thank you for a fabulous holiday."

  • Beautiful one day stunning the next!

    "This is by far the most beautiful place I have stayed. The house is stunning and stunning doesn't even express how it really is. Victoria is a wonderful host and there isn't anything she wouldn't do to help you make your holiday an experience you will never forget. Her local knowledge is extremely useful as there are plenty of options for things to do. With a last minute addition to the numbers staying in the house - we were able to fit 5 of us in comfortably (our original numbe 3) As a last minute request Victoria purchased two more beds. Once you open the doors to the wonderful deck there is sufficient room. for everyone to mull around. Lounging in the hammocks and reading was a highlight as you watch the wildlife pass you by. Manzanillo is easy to get to on the bikes that Victoria provides and Puerto Viejo (PV) is about 20 minutes from the property. The bus picks up and drops off at the gate every two hours so careful planning is involved but very accessible. A taxi to PV will cost you about $15 US. Grocery shopping is recommended in PV and buying wine however you can get beer in Manzanillo. There are beautiful beaches; great restaurants and souvenir and some very nice clothing shops. The house is well equipped with a full kitchen; washer and a dry room. Remember you are in the rainforest so it is humid. I highly recommend this house either for a family but a romantic holiday would be ideal. Love it."

  • Very large beautiful home

    "This home was one of the more attractive properties we stayed at. The house is enormous. The bottom floor is completely open to the outside with metal, sliding gates for walls, and shades for privacy. There is some patio furniture here that you can relax on and watch for wildlife and listen to the sounds of the surrounding jungle. The kitchen, one of the bedrooms/bath, is also on this ground floor but can be closed up and locked up seperately from the open space I just described. All the rooms have large wooden windows that can be opened to the outside. The upstairs is an expansive loft with another bed/bath. The house can be locked up like a fortress (locks on all doors and windows) but can also be very airy when everything is open. The house is mostly unused space and although it is beautiful hardwood and design, it was way too expansive for just the two of us. It would be more ideal for a family or group. There was no wi-fi access at the property other than a computer that was provided with a wi-fi stick that was basically only capable of internet surfing. We did not try to use it. The listing also said there was a dryer available but we never saw one. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need, including a safe. There is a caretaker that met us there initially to give us keys and show us how all the locks worked. He does not speak any English but hand gestures seemed to work for all of us just fine. His name is Mario and lives off site but was available by cell phone if needed. The house is a short walk from the tiny town of Manzanillo and a beautiful bike ride or 10 minute cab ride from Puerto Viejo. There are no cabs in Manzanillo so if you need one, you need to hire one from Puerto Viejo. Most businesses in either town are happy to call a cab for you. Although our stay was wonderful, our biggest issue was that there was another local, Carlos, that lives on the property in a very small house. He seemed very nice but whenever we went out on the upper balcony to enjoy the view, he was usually there watching us so we felt like our privacy was somewhat limited. Overall, I would recommend this property for the size if you need space, and the incredible security of the house when locked. The house is off the main road so although you can hear the ocassional car go by, you cant see the road and the jungle sounds drown most noise out anyway. We saw 2 sloths and toucans on the property."
