The minute we arrived, Monika welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like we were staying in an old friend's home. The apartment is exactly like the pictures and spotlessly clean! Also, the place is stocked with everything you need- cooking utensils/pots & pans, towels, hot water shower, fresh drinking water, fast wifi, air condition, and even cable tv- Bikes are available as well to ride to other beaches or the jaguar rescue center to see baby sloths! Monika couldn't have been more kind and helpful with our visit, she was available anytime we needed her but also respected our privacy- we even extended our stay for a total of 5 nights. The location is amazing -walking distance to the beach, bus stop, tons of restaurants and bars and even the weekly farmer's market is only a block away. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in puerto viejo, looking for something a little different from a hostel or hotel. It's great for a couple or 2 friends!
What isn't there to love about this apartment?! Let me start by saying, Monika was a fantastic host. Super friendly, she helped us from the get go and made sure our stay went smoothly.
The apartment itself is perfectly located in the centre of town and a five second walk from the beach, but isn't prone to the noise a bit further down the strip. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, and neat. The shower, AC, kitchen, and bed were major bonuses, and all in perfect order.
We loved the apartment so much that we booked an additional two nights the first day we arrived, and feel 100% comfortable with the quality on offer for what was paid.
