“Amazing charming House surrounded by nature”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A real experience to spend time in this beautiful home. We loved the fact that you always feel outdoors because of the open feeling the house has. You can walk or bike everywhere and the supermarket is just right there ! Also one of the best beaches in the area is just a walk away. Our hostests Mario and Gigi are the most amazing generous people you could ever meet. Thank you so much to both! We are coming back as soon as we can to El Principito.

“Felt like home”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Absolutely fantastic home. Far enough from the hustle of Puerto Viejo but close enough to enjoy the bike ride into town. Jean Marie was a fabulous host- the house was clean upon arrival and cleaned multiple times during our visit. Not once did we feel unsafe or unwelcome. Truly a home away from home. Thank you Jean Marie and GG for a fabulous stay!

I cannot even express how much we enjoyed our stay at El Principito. My boyfriend and I took our two friends from the states to stay there for two nights while they were visiting us, and it turned out to be the best experience any of us had ever had in Puerto Viejo. The house is located right next to Playa Cocles, which is conveniently located in between the Puerto Viejo town center and Punta Uva beach, which is our favorite beach in the area. However, the house is nicely tucked away in the lush forests, where the sound of birds and howler monkeys each morning is always a guarantee.

The house was beautifully decorated, very open and breezy, which definitely enhanced our experience. Not to mention, it is also very secure. The bathroom is very clean with good water pressure and the rooms are very spacious, clean, and comfortable--the perfect Costa Rican bungalow experience. Also, Jean-Marie was always just a phone call away and available to come over and help with anything that we needed.

We spent every evening preparing something to eat in the fully functioning kitchen and drinking a bottle of wine on the day bed or hammock on the upstairs porch. I strongly recommend this house to anyone who is looking for an affordable, worry-free week in paradise.
