  • 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."

  • Perfect!!

    "My friends and I had the most wonderful vacation at Casa Z! It was very spacious and comfortable for the four of us. The owner was very responsive with our reservation process and the management company went the extra mile when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the house AND the safe! The home has everything you could want and the location is primo!! I totally recommend Casa Z and will stay there on my next visit to Puerto Viejo!"

  • Atlanta to Costa Rica's Fun in the Sun

    "We were a group of 5 adult couples. The house was beautiful and clean. Susan the house manager was always helpful and professional. We were picked up on time from the airport, and for all our tours. The beach literally abuts your back yard, and the pool and yard area was spectacular. We selected to have chef services for a couple of dinners and a breakfast, and the food was superb. For 10 adults we paid about $100 in groceries plus the chef fees. All the security guards were helpful, but Hosea was soooo nice and helpful, we considered him part of our group. The only thing I would say that was not as I expected, was the 1st floor bedroom was listed as having a queen bed, it was actually a full/double bed. Susan the house manager, and Jim the owner were a pleasure to talk to and did everything in their power to make this a vacation we won't forget. We are definitely coming back again! Date of arrival"

  • Home Away From Home

    "This has been one of our favourite places to stay in Costa Rica. We stayed for only 7 days, and wish we could have stayed longer. Nothing compares to waking up to the sounds of the jungle. The view is absolutely breathtaking and often accompanied with monkeys and tucans - which is always a pleasure! You are right in the heart of the jungle with the comforts of a 5-star hotel and amazingly close to the beach. There are so many activities to do close by! I left feeling a wonderful sense of calm. I can't wait to come back next year!!"
