Casa de Delfines is located on the first street outside of Puerto Viejo and only a 200 meter walk down our quiet street to Playa Negra. This location means you are close to fabulous restaurants, shopping, spas, and nightlife in town and in complete tranquility at the house!

The lower level consists of a dining room, kitchen, full bathroom, bedroom, and laundry room. The dining room has a hardwood table and chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped for days when you would rather eat in. The full bathroom has a large walk-in hot water shower. The downstairs bedroom has a new air conditioner and screened glass windows and is the perfect place for sensitive electronics. The laundry room has a washing machine and wash basin.

The half bath can be accessed from both bedrooms. The master bedroom has a full sized bed, mosquito net, and shelves for clothing. The second bedroom has two twin beds with mosquito nets and also has shelving for clothing. Also each bedroom has a keyed door.

The outside is completely fenced and gated for security and there are tall privacy hibiscus lining the entire property. The entrance gate is beautifully carved with dolphins and opens to a covered carport for your vehicle. Feel free to relax in the two hammocks that are hung on either side of the front door! The back patio has a table and chairs which is located by the concrete outdoor grill which is perfect for cooking up your day's catch without heating up the kitchen. If you see any ripe bananas, cocoa, plantains,papaya, limes, passion fruit, or coconuts in the garden feel free to pick any of them and try what a truly fresh organic piece of fruit tastes like!

The house has a home phone for free local calls, wireless Internet, and a backup battery for electronics and the modem/router. There is a large safe for personal belongings. Casa de Delfines gives you the comforts of home while being in a tropical paradise!

About Krystle Richardson

We came to Puerto Viejo with our family and fell in love with the area and the people. It was like finding that dream place that has been in your head for a long time. We knew we had to call Puerto Viejo home, at least part- time! Since we cannot be there full-time we want to share our home and this wonderful place with others.

Krystle Richardson purchased this house in 2012

Why Krystle Richardson chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

We believe it is a great house for many reasons. It's proximity to the beach and town are perfect. The home has a cool concrete bottom with vaulted ceilings and ceiling fans on the upper level for maximum comfort. The kitchen and bathrooms have all of the modern conveniences that make you feel at home while in a jungle paradise.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Casa de Delfines in every way! It was a perfect setting for our Mama/Child friends reunion. We felt completely at home down to every detail...from the well equiped kitchen to beautiful upstairs hang-out space to the proximity to Puerto Viejo and Playa Negra beach that made it possible for us to not have to drive all the kiddos everywhere. True Costa Rica Pura Vida! We all live down here part of the year and it is rare to have such an affordable gem of a vacation rental. The owner, Krystal was very timely, helpful and kind in all communication and Susanna, the caretaker was absolutely lovely. I will definitely be planning on a stay next time I am back and only wish I would have known about this incredible Casa before!

Beautiful, private escape with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at casa de delfines for three nights and only wish we could stay longer! The garden is beautiful, the house was clean and all of the necessary amenities were provided (including a few different coffee makers!)

Krystle, Susan and Oscar all went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and feel safe while surrounded by wildlife and beautiful tropical jungle. I would recommend it to anyone as a home base while you explore the Caribbean coast, the towns, beaches and wildlife parks that are all near by! (Not to mention a beach literally a block away)

Thank you all, we will be happy to stay here again when we're back to thaw out in the winter!

Very nice property in good location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa de Delfines! Susana greeted us warmly, even though we arrived late due to traffic from San Jose. She was very helpful and accomodoating. We really enjoyed our time, there, and the upstairs open balcony was our place to hang out! We wherever comfortable, and the property is convenient for beach and Puerto Viejo, too. With bicycles, we were quite prepared to tour the area. Thanks!

Jungle Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The openness and seclusion of the property is wonderful. You are in the midst of the sounds of the jungle but close to everything that you need. It’s clean and has everything you need for a great stay. The swing hammocks on the deck were relaxing.

The family and I will definitely be returning to this property

We loved our stay in Puerto Viejo!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Delfines is a lovely place to stay. The property is beautiful and well kept. The house is spacious. We enjoyed the ocean sounds as well as the breeze. You can hear Howler Monkeys and birds in the early mornings. Bonus Points for A/C in the bottom bedroom although the weather was pleasantly cool at night. We will be back again!

Wonderful house, great location, would definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Delfines is worth booking for your time in Puerto Viejo! The house is in a great location - far enough from town to have peace and quiet, but close enough to easily walk to the beach, stores, and restaurants. The house itself is very cute and perfect for a couple or small group. We enjoyed the open upstairs seating area and relaxing in the outside hammocks. The kitchen made it easy to cook food at home if needed. The grounds of the house were beautiful and well secured. Susana was a great host and very easy to get a hold of. I highly recommend Casa de Delfines for your stay in Puerto Viejo!
