  • Mangrove House

    "We enjoyed our stay here; the house was very interesting with a nice observation deck. Saw lots of wildlife right outside (and inside) the living areas. The house was showing a bit of wear and tear but overall experience was very good and i would return in a heartbeat."

  • Fantastic!

    "We had a group of 5 people that spent 10 days at Casa Marmaris--most went for the surfing. The house is located at Backwash Bay -- which at the time we went was the best break! Tides are extreme--and Backwash breaks at mid to low tide (although we weren't there when it was big)! The house and grounds are fantastic--the views incredible! And the sound of the jungle make things interesting! Ximena was great to deal with for booking her house! Desiree and her husband Isaac were the caretakers of the house and were extremely helpful! We had Desiree cook for us every night---her choice of typical Costa Rican cuisine--and it was great every night! When others have said you should buy what you want to eat in Puerto Jiminez--they were right--it's a 20-30 minute drive back to Puerto Jiminez on some rocky roads! We paid Desirre to go to Puerto Jiminez and buy food and beer and wine for the 10 days we were there!! Best move we made!! Also would have to say a trip to the Lookout Inn towards Carate--is a worthwhile trip!! Plan on eating lunch there if you go--outstanding and reasonably priced--about a 45 minute drive! Keep in mind this is a remote location--no electricity--the main house is open--although all rooms have screens! I took plenty of bug spray and never used it and never was bit--I'm sure it has to do with the time of year. Internet works well! Also the howlers, geckos , raccoons and the macaws are ever entertaining! Want a tropical jungle experience whether you surf or not--great place!"

  • Hidden Gem! Worth the trip!

    "Casa Aloha was one of the sweetest places we have encountered in our 4+ years with VRBO. We have rented big houses in locked communities, houses in townships with hired caretakers and stayed in local hotels and hostels throughout Costa Rica. We are always looking for the hybrid that provides what you need as far as safety, comfort and helpfulness with what you want, privacy, a unique and genuine CR experience in an area with spectacular, clean beaches with the convenience of markets and restaurants. Casa Aloha in Pavones was ideal. The house is a little apartment in a separate house on the property of a lovely young English speaking couple who are very knowledable about the area and have thought of everything you could possible need. This includes bikes, surf boards, beach chairs, a bottle of wine and a fully stocked kitchen with coffee, spices, oil and the little things you usually forget like jam and butter. We are not much for TV but saw a huge selection of DVDs to choose from and the internet connection was great! There is a very cool observation deck on the top floor of this property where we hung out, saw beautiful birds, ate our dinners and enjoyed pura vida from the hammocks. The host couple have their own home on the property but you don't feel on top of each other with the jungle trees in between. They offered their pool to us but we were enjoying the beach to much to take them up on this ...this time. We recommend a SUV to travel to Pavones but you could do it in a regular car if you were careful and arrived in day light! (Definitely recommend daylight!!! Think very small bridges with no guard rails). There were actually three well stocked little markets with in walking or easy driving distance from the house and 3-4 great restaurants all in this secluded little area which is so cool about Pavones. You are definitely out there so fill up on gas before leaving the highway. We will definitely return to Pavones and Casa Aloha. Best wishes to our hosts!"
