Beautiful place little off Cahuita center. Clean, pretty bungalows, nice owner, monkeys, two friendly dogs. Ah, also nice price. Walk to the center or to the nearest beach takes about 5min. Bungalows have fridge and coffee making ability. There is no A/C but a fan takes care of that.

Close to the beach, wonderful food, amazing people, tons of wild life and exciting adventures in the forest! Doris is a wonderful hostess and always willing to point you in the right direction. The atmosphere was relaxing and inviting. We saw crabs, white faced monkeys, lizards, colorful birds and heard the loud roar of the howler monkeys every day at this site. Inside held a small kitchenate area, fans, 2 beds with nets and a wonderful shower too. No A/C or TV. Recommend walking maybe 5 minutes to the Cahuita national park to swim when it's hot. Eat in town or a fridge snack; no microwave. Super close walk to all food, grocery stores and beach. Our only let down is we had to leave.

Room Tip: Bungalow on the end is on the edge of national park and most secluded.

These bungalows are set literally right next to the national park; it feels like you are actually in the park. They are breazy bungalows with sleepy hammocks on the balconies from which you can watch the dozens of resident mud craps, listen to the howlers and pat the friendly alsatian Max. The bungalows come with a fridge and the complementary filter coffee is very good.

We've been to Cahuita in feb 2013 and stayed 3 nights in Bungalow Ache.
We stayed in the 1-bed Bungalow. The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable, but the blanket was a bit thin, so I was cold the first night. There was a second blanket which we used then. I guess Doris would have hand us some more if needed.
We saw monkeys out of our window, mainly capuchins. Something we didn't have in any other place in Costa Rica. There is also a tree next to the property where the vultures gather together every evening.
It's a short walk to the main road of Cahuita, where all the life in Cahuita takes place.
All in all a very nice place to stay.
