“Great Beach House!”
Reviewed January 22, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Loved the stay here and enjoyed the private little beach bungalow vibe of the space. Will say though that we were a bit taken aback by the mosquitos and smells of the bathrooms - given how exposed it is to the outdoors, there are some insanely big mosquitos flying around - hence the protective mosquito netting around the bed. Also, the bathroom has a perpetual smell of damp wood / mold. Not sure what can be done there or if it's just a function of the surroundings, but it created a feeling of uncleanliness that you just can't wash off. Also, bring your toiletries as this place will not have any on-shelf.

Last but not least, don't stay here if you're easily awakened at night by noises. Howler monkeys, birds, etc will be on a constant parade around the place so you're not lacking in nature noises at all.

Hello Julia and Dina and thank you for your review. We enjoyed having you both here for 3 nights! Yes, being ''nestled in the jungle'', we do have mosquitoes and monkeys and birds that do make noise but we also love sharing our quieter friends like geckos, sloths and butterflies with our guests as well. The woodsy odor in your bathroom is the result of the high humidity factor and, unfortunately, is out of our control. It is certainly not a reflection of the cleanliness factor, just a fact of being in paradise! Toiletries were provided upon arrival and are always replenished as required and our apologies if you feel you were lacking in anything over the 3 days. Again ladies, thank you for your visit and your review and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Wonderful accommodation, run by a welcoming, helpful yet unobtrusive couple, who will also prepare you an amazing breakfast. Conveniently close to town but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Puerto Viejo.
An ideal home yards from the beach, boardering on the jungle.

“Best stay in Costa Rica!”
Reviewed March 2, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is a set of four small Casitas located just about a mile from Puerto Viejo, very quiet area, set back in the forest. It is just the most charming place! The managers of the Casitas are a young Canadian couple who are always available, and helpful. Our Casita had a good sized bedroom, a large bathroom with walk in shower ( with hot water!), a kind of outdoor kitchen, with fridge, microwave, stove, etc., and a little porch with a table and chairs, two sling chairs, and a hammock! The grounds are beautifully landscaped. What a wonderful little piece of paradise. Be advised though that there is no air conditioning, but there is mosquito netting over the bed, and a good fan. You can borrow their bicycles to ride to the beach or town. Great beaches within walking or driving distance. GREAT restaurants in town. Couldn't get much better!

“The best place we've ever stayed! ”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed at Casitas las Flores for 9 nights and it was such a memorable time. The casitas are adorable and had pretty much everything we needed. Shevonne, Joe and Vittorio; our hosts were so warm and welcoming and helped us with anything we needed. Our casita was really clean and it was awesome to have a nice hot shower in the morning and after a swim. Casitas las Flores is located really close to Playa Negra and is nestled in the jungle so you enjoy some seclusion and the sounds of the jungle. We highly recommend this as your home base for your stay in Puerto Viejo.

“Welcome to the Jungle/Rogers Review”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Charming casitas nestled on the edge of the jungle set in beautiful gardens teeming with life.
Accommodation was very comfortable, well designed and spotless.
Joe and Shevonne were really welcoming and could not have been more helpful. They gave us great advice and recommendations throughout our stay.
5 mins stroll to Playa Negra and 15mins to Puerto Viejo itself. 20 mins bike ride will see you in trendy Cocles.
All in all, this was a fantastic stay and would highly recommend.
Don't forget to sample Shevonne's delicious Banana bread!

“Great time - excellent place :)”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Casita las Flores in March of this past year and had an excellent time! From the start Shevonne and Joe were very friendly and helpful - offering different insights on what to do and see in Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area. They even dropped off banana chocolate chip bread on our first morning there! First impression of our bungalow - WOW! It was perfect. Snuggled away from the town, but close enough to access by walking, biking, or car. Our bungalow was surrounded by the beautiful flora and fauna of Costa Rica, as well as your friendly local sloth, toucans, and hummingbirds. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the porch each morning,lying on the hammock, and watching the occasional rain shower. The bungalows had everything you needed - a bed (with mosquito netting), bath, and kitchen. It was our little paradise home away from home. It was hard coming back to the east coast and now with the winter coming we still reminisce about the great time we had in Puerto Viejo and Casita las Flores.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We received a warm welcome from Shevonne and Joe, who has just recently taken over the management of Casitas Las Flores. They were incredibly friendly and helpful.

The accommodation included a bedroom, bathroom, outdoor sitting and dining area and a small but well equipped kitchen. A treat was the warm banana bread left for us on the first morning.

Location wise the place was perfect for us. Just 1km from town up a quiet dirt track. We used the hire bikes a couple of times to explore. We found some great yoga classes nearby too. It was peaceful and quiet just chilling in the mature garden.

We also enjoyed a home cooked meal with Shevonne and Joe for $15 p/p. A tasty veggie curry and brownie for dessert. We shared some wine and travel stories. They are a great hosts. Nothing is too much trouble.

Highly recommended.
