Absolutely amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 6 adults and 2 children thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The garden was beautiful. The pool was clean and relaxing. The air-conditioning worked great as did the washer and dryer. It tool us a little while to get accustomed to the open air kitchen, however we did cook a couple meals there and found the stove to work well. The open air living area was beautiful and we spent loads of time there. However, we would have enjoyed some more comfortable seating. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. There were plenty of towels but no wash cloths. The house is a short walk to beautiful beaches, amazing snorkeling and several grocers and restaurants. We enjoyed a tour of Cahuita National Park (the wildlife is amazing) and the Sloth Sanctuary. We were lucky enough to see mother and baby two-fingered sloths munching on beach almond leaves just down the lane from the house. Other rentals I've stayed at had binders of information about the rental and surroundings. This would be useful here. Overall it was a great experience and a memorable trip. This is a great rental for anyone ready to relax and enjoy the Costa Rican Caribbean.

Beautifully landscaped and wonderful location!

  • 3 of 5

This is a very private gated property. Beautifully landscaped with tropical plants and trees.

I liked the design of the house.

Private, inclosed and Air conditioned bedrooms. The main living area was my favorite part! Open air. Large space. The kitchen - not so much- it is also open air and opened to every little creature. Creepy crawlies as well as animals.

We travel extensively to tropical locations. Bugs and mold are just part of those locations. But this had no pest control. Do not recommend planning on using the kitchen. We ate at local restaurants our whole stay here.

Laundry on site. Which was great. But you can't use the washer, AC's and shower at the same time. We lost power one night. Doris did respond immediately and we were back up and running in no time.

The location was fantastic! Many, many, many howler monkeys!! We saw large troops of them steps away from the property.

It's a very easy and short walk to town and to the Cahuita National Park. The little town is very laid back with lots of shops, grocery stores and restaurants. We found our favorite to be Ricky's.

This property is in a GREAT location and has lots of potential but the kitchen needs renovating.

Just ok

  • 3 of 5

I really wanted and hoped for this to be a 4 or 5 star experience but it was not. We did stay in another home for a week in the same area so I do feel that I have good grounds for my review. This house is not luxury.

Pluses: Beautiful surroundings with the garden

Minus: Mold smell to home and even mold on the outside ceiling, kitchen just was not clean, I understand it was older and a bit beat up but we saw roaches.

Beach is amazing but at least 1/2-1 mile walk to a beach you an actually spend the day at... so if you have little kids come prepared. It is gorgeous though.

I felt that the cost per night did not reflect the quality of the place.

Dorris is so very very sweet and an amazing host always answered all our questions.

Thank you.

Beautiful property. Makes you feel lost in the jungle yet it is minutes from the beach and town.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed for 10 days in this beautiful property and we all agree that it was the best house we could have chosen. We saw all kinds of wildlife right on the property! Howler Monkeys were always around and very entertaining. You have to see it to believe it.

Doris was responsive to anything we needed immediately as was Anna. They made our stay even better. All of the wonderful reviews on this property are spot on. The pool was really nice very clean as was the house. Rustic setting with all the comforts of home.

Cahuita is a friendly town with great restaurants, shopping and the National Park and it’s beaches are beautiful and a must see. The bus system is a great way to get around and see the other nearby towns. We did not need a car. We’ve been to the Caribbean many times and this was by far our best Caribbean vacation even though we had some rain.

Also if you want to surf, kayak or hike call Billy’s Cahuita Experience Surf School. Billy and Karine will set you up with a great tour! There are many great restaurants too. Our favorite was El Girasol and Aroma the small coffee shop next to Billy’s. Sobre Las Olas on the Caribbean Sea referenced in other reviews was great too!

Thank you Doris and Anna! We hope to return in the future.

Tropical Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in November and could not be happier with our experience,this property was a tropical paradise. It was secure and safe with caretakers on the property. It was a five minute walk to the beach, town and National Park entrance. Doris was wonderful and responded to any questions that we had and even met us late at night when we finaly arrived in Cahiuta much later than we had anticipated. This house was an authentic Coata Rican experience.
