  • Experience all that Costa Rica has to offer at this property

    "This property is beautiful! You have the jungle in your backyard with so much jungle life all around you. And the path to the beach is a short and very wonderful walk. The beach is beautiful and goes for miles in both directions with so much privacy. We were traveling with 8 people (4 adults/4 kiddos aged 12, 13, 15, 16) and had plenty of space inside of out. Definitely bring flash lights and binoculars to explore this wonderous property. What we liked about the property - everything! -the privacy, the beauty, the jungle and the the beach -within walking distance to restaurants and grocery -within biking distance to shops and other beaches (many beaches to explore) -the outdoor living space is amazing - like no other we have seen before - it is huge and very clean and very well covered. We were there during a tropical storm and nothing leaked. It was amazing to be able to be outside to hear and see the rain and experience the jungle. Can't imagine staying anywhere else - rain or shine this is where you want to be -air condition in the bedrooms -inside living space was very roomy as well as the bedrooms - very large -sliding doors that open to outdoor living space -2 foot showers and an outside shower Please know the kitchen and dining area are all outside - the fridge, stove, cabinets, trash, tables, chairs, everything. **If you like to cook (which we did for almost every meal) the outdoor kitchen can be challenging if you are used to a lot of amenities. You can not store any dry food outside unless it is sealed tight, as jungle creatures will find there way to the patio while you are sleeping. You have to be sure and clean/wash everything as soon as you are done cooking as the bugs/ants are quick to act on food that is out. The kitchen amenities are very basic due to this. Would recommend to bring a very sharp kitchen knife and there is no cutting board. Would also recommend bringing Ziploc bags as there is not much to store leftover food in. No complaint at all -we loved it - just informing since it is not really noted anywhere. The caretakers on the property will accommodate any needs you have - you just have to let them know. Communication is key. Amelie is wonderful, responsive and very informative. If you have any questions just ask her as she is very open and honest and gives wonderful recommendations to whatever you are interested in."

  • Shiplap oasis!!

    "Joanna Gaines (Fixer Upper) would be impressed with the design of the White Cottage. The open floor plan, wrap around porch and floor to ceiling shiplap creates a calming space to enjoy your Costa Rican vacation. The cottage included a huge closet that was a pleasant surprise. It was nice to unpack our suitcases and keep things organized. Our favorite spot was the front porch where we sat watching the ocean while listening to the great green macaws, howler monkeys and toucans. Our favorite wildlife was the sloth that hung out for a couple of days in the beach almond tree. Pedro did a great job of pointing out different animals that happened to be in the yard. He even came to find us a couple times so we didn't miss out. There was another family who had rented the other cottages. However due to the way the property is laid out, you would have never known they were there. Even when they were hanging out by the hammocks the noise didn't travel. Highly recommend this property. It's location allowed for numerous options for meals, beaches, and shopping. Great vibe!"

  • We are in love (with the house and each other!)!

    "Choosing a place to stay wasn't easy, but with a few emails back and forth, it was easy to choose Casa Bella for our anniversary trip. Walter was easy to communicate with, told us about the lay of the land, and how welcoming the people in the nearby village are. Everyone was so helpful, loving to share their stories and it was great to see the local children living such a great life. There was never any pressure and we enjoyed the beach (incredible snorkeling) riding bikes and going into Puerto Viejo for an awesome dinner one night. This was a trip to remember forever and we will gladly suggest that anyone who is looking to be away from the insanity of the city, enjoy everything that nature has to offer (early morning monkey show, followed by coffee with the toucans, then breakfast with the amazing butterflies!), beautiful walks in the jungle and on the beach...I could just go on and on. We have been to Costa Rica several times but never had the experience we enjoyed at Casa Bella!"
