Fun place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here.The dome home was as nice in person as it appears in the pictures and is secluded while still close to things. Eric and Jeff were great hosts who were always available to help out with arranging trips/cabs or to answer any questions. The location is great; close to the beach, a short walk to town along the beach, with a grocery, restaurant and bus stop also nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect carribean jungle getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had such a blast in Puerto Viejo and the icing on the cake was staying at The Dome. John and Eric are so friendly and will answer any inquiries about where to eat, where to drink and what activities to do! We spent many mornings on the jungle deck above the Dome watching birds and jungle life! If you are planning a trip to Puerto Viejo, you have found the perfect accommodation!!

John and Eric were fantastic! Anything you needed it questions of were to eat, what to see etc. we're always answered and never disappointed! You got a true feeling of what it was like living in a Jungle and be aware as you are living with nature ad there are no screens on your Windows.... absolutely a great experience...

What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Just like the photos, you are in the jungle, yet a short walk to the beach (door to shore about 5 minute walk), seven minutes to the local bar and store, ten minute bike ride into town. Big beautiful black sand beach that stretches for miles, with warm water and gentle waves. The town is Puerto Viejo and is a great place to eat, drink and find fabulous gifts and crafts. Its got a great feel with lots of action, if you are there on a Monday or Tuesday, things are a bit slower as many establishments take these days to rest. The house itself is just as pictured, quite enchanting and magical. We spent most of our time on the observation deck, just looking and listening, that's when you know you are in the jungle. The sounds are amazing, surrounded by a canopy of foliage. Quite surreal. The plunge pool is great on the really hot days, when you've been to the beach, and you just wanna chill...literally...real refreshing. John and Eric are fabulous hosts that give you space and attention, helping us with bike rentals(they had them delivered and picked up for us), places to shop, eat and enjoy. They certainly made you feel at home. One more thing...the acoustics in the house are amazing and can only be appreciated by experiencing them, as Eric said, everyone is a great singer in the dome.

Excellent! Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, John and Eric are the most thoughtful, kind, helpful and knowledgable hosts; and the dome is perfect! I stayed there for a week with my 14-year old daughter and we couldn't have asked for a better home base to explore the area.

Being "home" at the dome was relaxing and always interesting...everything from sitting on the observation deck for morning coffee or evening wine and feeling like we were part of the jungle; to hearing the sounds of the jungle at night; to ending a hot day in the plunge pool; to picking john and eric's knowledgable and generous brains. We loved our stay so much that we are heading back to look at property of our own.

Puerto Viejo is amazing (from animals to culture to food to adventure) and the dome was the best.

Dont miss this experience!!!!

Thank you John and Eric!!!!!! You guys have set the bar HIGH!!!
