  • A wonderful way to spend our honeymoon!

    "What a wonderful place to stay for our honeymoon - Troy's had everything and more! We stayed for five nights and barely left the property! His home is perfect for those that want wildlife and the comforts of home. We were up at 6:30 every morning to walk on the secluded beautiful beach, enjoyed the balcony for reading, and the front porch for viewing wildlife - (Bruno the sloth is so cute!) We walked to the restaurants and shops and loved the variety. Troy does a great job of maintaining the property and making sure their guests are taken care of. We will be back! Highly recommend for couples or families."

  • Wonderful place to enjoy the natural beauty of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica!

    "My husband and I were lucky to spend a week at Casa de Earlybirds in late September, which, by the way, is a wonderful time to visit. We had almost no rain and the beaches to ourselves. The layout of the house is great: up on the second floor looking out over the jungle toward the beach. The design is nice, too; lots of wood and interesting items decorate the space. The open living area allows the sights and sounds to be with you always...the roar of ocean waves, beautiful plants and the monkeys and birds. The toucans squabble in the trees in front of the house, so we got some pictures of these fabulous birds. The howler monkeys visited a few times in large family groups. My favorite time of day was early morning with coffee in the protected "outdoor" living room. Once the sun was up, so was I; not wanting to miss anything! (my husband slept in!) The property is within a protected wildlife area, and our wanderings around the neighborhood provided as much nature viewing as any excursion we took! We rented bikes in Puerto Viejo, and rode between the different beaches along the road. We enjoyed swimming at the beach just outside our gate. Favorite restaurants: Cool Calm Cafe in Manzanillo, Selvin in Punta Uva, and Carribean Coffee shop...(the tour of their organic chocolate farm is fantastic). The owners of Casa de Earlybirds are easy to deal with and the caretaker downstairs is helpful. All in all, this was the best week of our 3 week trip to Costa Rica."

  • Relaxing and Peaceful

    "The house was very clean and well maintained. The nights were comfortable sleeping under the netting and listening to the rain. It rained most nights during our stay and was sunny most day. The area surrounding the house was very peaceful and private. We enjoyed listening to the abundant wildlife in the rain-forest, howler monkeys and all kinds of birds. After spending the day sightseeing and touring the local area, it was so nice to come back to the spacious house to relax and get ready for the next day's adventure. Stephanie and Johanna were a great help in getting us checked into the house, even though we were a little late arriving due to the holiday traffic. They even helped with arranging a rafting trip on the Pacuare river where we were picked up at a nearby hotel. We rented a 4X4 and had no trouble at all getting up the hill. We loved staying at the Canopy House."

  • Lovely house, convenient location

    "For our family of young and older adults, this was absolutely the most perfect house and location. Restaurants, stores and beaches are within close walking distance. Punta Uva, the town of Puerto Viejo, and attractions like the Jaguar Rescue Center are within easy biking or walking distance (including the restaurant La Pecora Nera). The jungle is all around, but the property is completely secured by fencing and there's a feeling of security as well as privacy. The managers (Mao when we were there) were so helpful, before and during our visit, and always available. The saltwater pool was lovely, and we had it all to ourselves since we rented the entire house. Star-gazing from the lounge chairs by the pool at night was amazing. Every morning we walked along the dirt road through the jungle to the beach to watch the sunrise. We took flashlights to see the leaf-cutter ants doing their thing along the path. Some mornings the howler monkeys would be right up overhead, which was thrilling to hear. There were so many different birds in the area around the house, including toucans. On the beach, where the nearby creek feeds into the ocean, there was a variety of shore birds there every morning. At the house, we spent most of our time at the pool or upstairs in the open kitchen area. It was always comfortable, with a ceiling fan as well as a floor fan and plenty of seating for six, including rockers and a hammock. It was the dry season so we had no problems at all with mosquitoes. The bedrooms were air conditioned, which provided a nice break from the humidity. The bedrooms also had screened windows that could be opened if preferred to a/c. We cooked a lot of our meals and found the kitchen well-equipped. If you rent the entire house there is also an indoor kitchen downstairs, but we didn't use it at all. There's a charcoal grill by the pool that we used one night to grill some fresh fish. Plenty of towels are provided, with extras for the pool. If you rent for an entire week, someone will come mid-week to clean, bring clean towels, and even change the sheets if you want. We loved the house. Away from the crowds of Puerto Viejo, but within biking distance, close to Playa Cocles (with a lifeguard and surfboard rentals), surrounded by nature, but also in the midst of a vibrant community, it was the perfect location for our family--just what we were looking for."
