“HEAVEN AWAY FROM HOME”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The pictures don't lie! Bring your bathing suit, sunscreen and a good book. This is really the place to relax and rejuvenate. The house is very nice with an extremely well equipped kitchen. Everything worked properly.

Monica and Evi were great and attentive. I would recommend putting "whatsapp" on your phone prior to arriving. Because the house has free Wi-Fi, we were able to communicate with them, through text, using this app and it was very helpful.

We are three young seniors on our first trip to Costa Rica. We travelled by car from the opposite side of the country and I have to say that the worst roads that we encountered were from Limon south and the worst of all were Puerto Viejo and south. Aside from that, the area is lush and beautiful. We felt very safe and secure in this house as it's equipped with a security system and good locks on all the doors. The area is quiet and both Evi and Monica live very close.

We rented this house for our honeymoon to Costa Rica and couldn't have been more impressed. It was our first time to the area and we felt like we made such a good choice with this house. The pool is beautiful and so well maintained. The bedrooms and rest of the house are incredible, especially considering you are in a jungle. Having a washer/dryer was a nice bonus! We really enjoyed the location as well. It was perfect being so set back from the road, close to Evi and other similar vacation rentals but very private. We also enjoyed being close enough to the very lively Puerto Viejo to go for a night, but far enough away that we could have a very relaxing vacation in beautiful, serene Playa Chiquita.

Very nice, clean and comfortable home. Easy walk to the beach and surrounding restaurants. Evi and Monica were very helpful and met us at the property and explained how everything worked in the home. Top notch appliances, cookware and linens. They must have bought everything for the home first class. For being in the jungle and I was surprised how very few issues we had with bugs.

The only issue we had was the hot water and water presser needed work. After talking to Monica it appears they were going to try and fix it. If the water was working well I would have given this all 5 stars. I would highly recommend this home and certainly stay there again.

The house is in an amazing location and extremely comfortable. During the day we watched monkeys in the trees and toucans flying overhead while taking a dip in the pool. during the evening we enjoyed all of the sounds of the jungle. It is a short walk to some great restaurants and bike rental. We parked the car and rode up and down the coast. The beaches across the street are as close as you can get to a private beach.
Great stay all the way through!
