Everything was perfect for us. The house is clean, we felt safe and at home.
Plenty of space for us (family of 4 ). It was very special to wake up ( ok, it was very early ) because of the Howler Monkeys and than get up and walk to the beach, sitting there with a cup of coffee, nobody else there....PARADISE! Carlos and Jolanda, who are taking care of the property are doing a very nice job, thank you!
We hope to come back one day.

We had a wonderful time in this house with our two small kids (3 and 1 1/2 years old) and can absolutely recommend this place. There is a kitchen with everything we needed (except for the toaster which had not been replaced yet) and a comfortable seating area downstairs. The first floor was perfect for us because the two rooms and the hallway (including another seating area) is mosquito-proof and the kids had therefore a quite large covered room to play during the (at our stay rather unusually frequent) downpours. The top of everything of course is the beach which is accessible through a short path through the garden/jungle. We really hope we will make it back there some time.

“Ultimate Family Honeymoon!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My wife & I, both single parents of 4 & 6 year old girls, married on August 3rd, 2014. We chose Casa de la Musa because of the 2 bedrooms but at the end it was a perfect accommodation for a myriad of reasons!!
Part of my job is inspecting hotels and vacation properties so any negative comment hereafter reflects only my thoroughness!! Needless to say the question is not IF our family will return but when!!
I had two reservations after inspecting the property. First they advertise and present a photo of a bathtub. When I asked where the stopper was, I was told there is none but you cannot use the tub anyway because of the water!? Second, upon inspecting the kitchen the oven didn`t work and I was asked, well you weren`t planning to use the oven on vacation were you? Well, actually I was! We have two small children and cannot afford restaurants every night.
However, those are the absolute only drawbacks at all!! Everything else exceeded our expectations! Our host Evi even gave us some local travel tips and not just the usual go here or there but opinion that greatly enhanced our vacation!!
My wife and I cannot wait to go again and I would highly recommend it but I don`t want you to book out the space so we can`t get it!!!

My wife and I just returned from a week-long stay at this house. We can't imagine a better place to stay near Puerto Viejo. The house is literally steps from the beach; we fell asleep each evening listening to the waves crash against the sand. There's a huge screened-in porch to protect against the plentiful insects in the area, the bedrooms have air conditioning, and the 2nd floor bathroom has hot water. It has been beautifully renovated. Yolanda did a wonderful job of cleaning the house during our stay. Simply wonderful--we hated to leave and can't wait to return next year.

I stayed at Casa de la Musa with my husband and children ages 9 and 11. It was perfect for us. We loved hiking to the point and finding fun places to swim on our beach walks. It was nice to have the caretakers on the property and we always felt safe. There are lots a great places to eat near by as well as a small grocery store. We rented bikes from the caretakers to ride to PV, which made it hassle free! We loved playing cards and swinging in the hammocks surrounded by the jungle but so close to the beautiful beach. A group of howler monkeys swung by the place, which was cool to see and hear. Thank you for making your home available for us!

“Perfect”

My stay at Casa De La Musa was the perfect spot to spend a relaxing honeymoon. Everything was in great shape when we got there, two air conditioned rooms, a fantastic covered porch with a view of the Caribbean, and our own private entrance onto a spectacular beach. The construction is charming, with exposed wood, and a modern bathroom that is a nice balance between the comforts of home and the ruggedness of the CR Caribbean coast. The spot is a short walk from the best restaurants in the area (Jungle Love, Selvin, etc.) and short bike ride or drive from Puerto VIejo OR Manzanillo. The caretakers are fantastic and will make sure you have everything you need. They even arranged tours for us and arranged for a photographer for my wife and I to take wedding photos! If you are looking for a relaxing spot in a stunning location, STAY HERE! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

“Very close to a great beach...”

We stayed at Casa de la Musa for two weeks. It is extremely close to the beautiful Punta Uva beach. The sound of the surf from the house was awesome! We saw several sloths and monkeys at the house.

The air conditioning in the bedrooms is a big plus at night. It is much warmer near the beach and the heavy vegetation around the house blocks the ocean breeze most of the time. The AC units were quiet and cooled the rooms down very quickly. We only turned them on to sleep.

The caretakers live very close; the two houses almost touch. Yolanda and Carlos are wonderful people with darling children. Our only complaint was the barking of their chained-up dog. He barked during the day and he barked late at night. I understand that for security reasons, it may have been beneficial. We did have people walking by the house regularly on their way to the beach. However, usually the dog just barked at their other puppy. We have dogs at home, so the daytime barking wasn't a big deal. I didn't really like waking up to barking at night, though.

The open layout of the kitchen and dining area was awesome! I loved preparing meals and eating outside with our family.

During our two-week stay, Yolanda cleaned the house and changed the linens twice, which I thought was great. When we rent a house, we like being left to ourselves as much as possible.

I would recommend this house to a friend due to the prime location, but with a mild warning about the dog. For those looking for extreme privacy and quiet, this may not be the best house. For those looking for quick beach access, I would definitely recommend this house.
