The foundation was constructed of native Nispero hardwood posts, beams and flooring. Thus, the reason for the name we chose, Casa de Nispero.

About Bethanne and John Jacobson

John and Bethanne Jacobson are the owners of this newly constructed villa. John is a retired college professor, and Bethanne is a retired psychologist. They currently live in the small historic town of New Bern, NC having moved there from Southwestern Pennsylvania 15 years ago. They have always loved building and restoring properties and now live in a historic home built in 1914 which they restored 4 years ago.

Bethanne and John Jacobson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Bethanne and John Jacobson chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

John and Bethanne have always looked for places to visit outside the typical tourist destination. They decided to build in Puerto Viejo after spending several years exploring all the parts of Costa Rica. Several years ago they stayed at Casa de Barro and immediately fell in love with the craftsmanship and setting, the uncrowded beach and diverse community. When purchasing the property next door plans were begun with Jeff (the owner of Casa de Barry) to create our villa with the same care and artistry. Jeff is now the property manager for Casa de Nispero

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Christmas weekend with our family of five in this thoughtfully designed and well equipped house. All that we needed to make full meals was found in the kitchen. It was a lovely short walk to the beach and the waves could be heard from the hammock on the porch of the house. The bicycles were a fun aspect of the adventure as we rode the short distance to town to shop or explore. There was no shortage of beauty and beaches all around us.

Beautiful, quiet spot a short distance from town

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Nispero is a beautiful house on a very quiet street very close to a nice beach and only a short drive or walk into the bustle and activity of Puerto Viejo. The house was a perfect size for our group of five (two couples and a seven year old). Jeff, the property manager, was very helpful and lives right near by in case you need anything.

We enjoyed are stay here. It had everything we needed plus a huge bed and a nice deck for relaxing and watching birds. The pool was a plus and was nice and warm. The location was great, very close to the beach, a short walk to town and very close to a bus stop. Jeff was a great host.

Endroit très agréable, la vigiliature est magnifique. Pouvons faire plusieurs activités visite de perroquets, refuge d'animaux de la jungle, les boutiques abordables, epicerie complètes, la nourriture est bonne dans les restaurants. Par contre en matière de vin ils sont très cher et peu de choix.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve! we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately we do not control the quality or price of wine in Costa Rica :(. Sure wish we could. For future guests.....If you have a car, the best place (larger selection) to get wine is at a small grocery in Chocheles. Thanks again and we'd welcome a return visit. Bethanne Jacobson, Owner

Owner's Response: Hi Gerardo, We always apreciate our guests feedback. Unfortunetly, we cannot control the weather if that is what you are referring to, sorry if you didn't enjoy what nature has to offer in the tropics. As far as the size of the house. It is 110 square meters, has a large balcony upstairs and downstairs. The upstairs houses enough room for a king size bed with plenty of room to spare. The downstairs has a queen bed, single bed, sofa and chair with plenty of room to spare. The living room and kitchen area have a sofa, 2 chairs, tables, a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of spare room. Not sure what you are referring to as far as small house. We don't understand your judgement in size. Nevertheless, thank you for your input as we appreciate all opinions of our guests. Sincerely, Jeff-Casa de Nispero

Car: not necessary

Puerto Viejo offers an eclectic mix of restaurants and shopping with a beautiful black beach that you will often have to yourselves. You don't want to miss Saturday's farmers market with an extensive mix of organic fruits and vegetables, chocolate, pastries and cheeses.
