Set amongst tropical herb garden, just one block to the beach &Caribbean Sea. People that will be happy here are ok with very rustic and are excited to stay in one of the last remaining traditional Caribbean style Cabina thats located in the heart of Manzanillo. Enjoy tranquility, take a class, go on our tour, or just relax! This room has a spacious porch, has a basic kitchen stove, cups, plates, silverware, fridge, mosquito nets, wifi. We have three rooms onsite plus our classroom out back.
Welcome to, we are so thankful to have you here! We hope you have a wonderful, relaxed time during your stay with us. We are here to help you with any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to ask. The property has two security Cámaras located on the outside on the front porch. About Manzanillo: Manzanillo is a beautiful and tranquil small traditional fishing village, folks here are extremely warm and welcoming. We have several small restaurants “sodas", as well as three small super markets “pulperias". Some accept credit card, some do not, please ask if you have any question. The closest ATM is in Puerto Viejo at Banco de Costa Rica or Banco Nacional. There is one bar in Manzanillo called Maxi's. There are many nice restaurants and tourist shops in towns north of here, we can recommend if you need! The entrance to the Gondoca Manzanillo National Reserve is very close from the center of town, from Maxi's to your right walking you will reach the entrance about 5 minutes walking. There is a short walk to Miss May Lookout Point over the Caribbean Sea, but other than that we highly recommend taking a guide to walk in the national park as trails are unmarked and can be confusing. Swimming is safest from the center of Manzanillo down towards your right, and is great for snorkelling and kayaking. From the center of town as you look to the left and see the point of the beach just north, that is Punta Uva, and it best not to swim in that direction as there can be strong currents. It is a beautiful walk along the beach to Punta Uva. Though we are on the Caribbean Coast we do get a beautiful sunset over Punta Uva in the evenings! When you are on the beach do not bring valuables with you. Our town is very safe and you can feel comfortable walking around, however when you leave your room here please lock all doors and windows. It is best to leave all of your belongings inside of your room. WIFI Red/Network: Centroashe Clave/Password: asheashe CHECK IN/CHECK OUT: Check in time is 1:00pm and check out time is 11:00am, when you leave please remember to leave the key with us, it is $10 charge for lost room key. TOILETS: Please do not flush toilet paper down the toilet, but rather put your toilet paper, trash and other products into the waste basket directly next to the toilet. The pipes are unable to process these items and will clog. WATER: Please note Manzanillo does not have potable water, its fine for showering etc. Make sure to purchase clean drinking water at one of our nearby stores. ROOM CLEANING/TOWELS - our cleaning service will come in and clean every few days and will replace your towels and sheets at that time, please do not bring your towels to the beach. NO SMOKING/BURNING Please do not burn anything inside of your room, no smoking onsite. SECURITY: Please shut off lights and fans when you leave your room, and leave all doors and windows locked and all of your belongings inside. VILLAGE LIFE: While visiting us please know we are located in the heart of Manzanillo, a small fishing village, but remember you are a guest in another culture often folks begin working early around here - you may here neighbors talking, singing in the local churches, folks washing clothes, chopping grass, working on their houses etc. Neighbors will sometimes play loud calypso, reggae or salsa music - we invite you to enjoy and relax into the local culture. WATER/ELECTRICITY - again please come with a relaxed attitude, we are connected to municipal water and have a back up water tank for water, so for the most part we never run out of water. But every once in a while it is a possibility we may have no water for a few hours at a time. This is usually something that is rectified very quickly. Your shower will have warm water, but works best based on a certain amount of water pressure, if its too slow or too fast it won't heat correctly - if you are having trouble let us know! Sometimes the electricity goes out, the same way like in other parts of the world. RELAX AND ENJOY, PURA VIDA

On property are trails trough heart of Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. There are rechargable lamps, stove, drinking water filter. I provide boots if needed.

Around house are paths which you can use to explore jungle in the area. Nearest and only neighbors are about 15 min by walk. The house doesn't have wifi, but great 4g gsm reception if you will have Costarican sim. Also no fridge, but is there one cooling box to store cold beverages if brought. Beautiful outside shower, in bathroom is nice RV ceramic toilet. Also will have there chrged power bank to charge your phone or tablet.
If you like to try real jungle stay, with ocean view, walking distance to most beautifull beach in Costa Rica.. Every evening a lot of parrots, tucans, monkeys just by terrace.. Kinkajou and Olingo at night right in front of terrace..
  • We loved to stay at Jans jungle house, which is the perfect place for nature lovers who like to be a bit secluded from touristic and overcrowded places but still close to everything you need (supermarkets, restaurants, shops, etc). The house is super well equipped and Jan is very helpful if you need something/help/advice (and helps you to carry up your stuff, 15min walk up). We loved to experience the jungle for some days, to hear and see the wildlife around us which is just the best with the house. Thanks again Jan & Teresa for the stay, we can only highly recommend it !

    Camille2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place surrounded by jungle and birds!

    Charlot2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica! Amazing little cabin in the middle of the rainforest with tons of wildlife to discover. The cabin itself is conveniently equipped with all the necessities you would need for your stay. Super comfy mattress with ocean views and outdoor shower is a delight. Jan and his family were so helpful and lovely to chat with. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to spend more nights with the toucans!

    Paola2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic experience at the Ocean View Jungle House! We saw monkeys, toucans, macaws and other wildlife. The walk up was strenuous at times for us at 70+ years but the reward of being in a truly unique place was well worth the effort. Jan and Teresa were exceptional hosts, helpful in so many ways. It was great!

    Angela2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jan’s place is truly incredible - you are immersed in the beautiful Costa Rican rainforest, surrounded by howler monkeys, toucans, and interesting insects. The hike was not too difficult and Jan was very hospitable and communicative. Would absolutely recommend - this place was the highlight of my experience in Costa Rica!

    Nicholas2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Really recommending to stay in the dschungel house! This is the place to be if you really want to explore the nature in Costa Rica. Jan and his family have built everything by themselves with lovely details. You can feel their love to nature and you can observe and hear lots and lots of animals.

    Franziska2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wake up with the sound of the jungle see toucans and colibris, do a night tour with to meet snakes frog spider... it is an amazing experience ! I cooked with monkeys in the tree that they observe you. If you want to have A real experience in and with the nature go to Jan house !

    Marjorie2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is well above any expectations. The tranquility of the place, the view and private wildlife lookout is like not from this world. Tukans, ara, monkies, just name a few, are everyday visiters. I have spend 5 days here and it was not enough. I can not immagine to make any other choice. Jan´s place have made a difference to how I enjoyed Costarica. Also I must point out, that the journey to Jungle villa it only took me like 7-8 minutes, it was easy, absolutelly safe and I also walked this route at night regullary. I have spend there beautifull nights, was not worried for a second, and I have been there alone. If you come to Costarica to party, share the beach with other 100 people, and listen at night neighbours radio, than it is better to take some appartment near this scene. But if you want to enjoy sounds of jungle, wildlife at your doorstep for which other people have to pay to enter parks, remote beaches and experience safe and amazing junglelife, this is the safe choice, you will never regret.

  • Incredible place

    Esteban2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Manzanillo is a great little town on the Caribbean at the end of the road. The best thing about this place is meeting Sergio, the local host. He’s a laid back Caribbean Tico who is so friendly and generous. (He lent my husband his guitar during our stay. They traded songs one evening.) He says the place is in the process of becoming. He has great plans and as he fixes up the rooms, he is renting them. So this is the first available on Airbnb. He is totally open to suggestions as he creates this place. So what wasn’t there he got for us when we asked. Though they are planning on it, there is no hot water yet but in this climate who needs it? Most places we’ve been don’t have it. We loved our stay and will plan on returning!

    Manzanillo is a village located inside the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife and Marine Refuge. Manzanillo is situated south of Puerto Viejo in Limón Province on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. The main attraction of this tiny town is its white sand beach lined with palm trees. Small convenience stores and restaurants are a 5 min walking distance. Located at 15 km from Puerto Viejo de Limon, and about 4 hours and a half from the capital San Jose.
  • The house was everything we wanted and more. Private, almost end of the road location was quiet except for the abundant sounds of birds and howler monkeys. Just a short walk to the beaches, tiendas and restaurants made this a perfect place to call home for three weeks in the paradise of Manzanillo.

    Katie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a great location, you can only hear the sounds of nature. The kitchen is well equipped. And has large fridges. Mosquito nets are available. We would book there again.

    Helga2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent a unique place for nature lovers 100% recommended

    Leandro2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. We enjoyed our stay. We had everything we needed, even fast internet. It’s on the end of village of Manzanillo so it’s pretty quiet (of course there are monkeys). We would love to come back again.

    Nina2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our stay at Kristin’s place! We were a group of four - one couple and two friends and the space was perfect for us to hang at the beach or jungle all day and then cook dinner and hang out at night. I especially loved doing yoga in the morning on the deck :) there were lots of howler monkeys in the area and we had some rain during our stay, but it was overall a really quiet and peaceful week.

    Taylor2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cabin a few meters from the beach. I recommend bringing a good repellent due to the amount of mosquitoes there are.

    Maria Jesús2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kristin was very welcoming. She meet me in town so that she could show me the way. She showed me around the cabin and how things worked. The cabin is only a couple of mins walk from the beach, restaurants, and grocery store. The cabin is located close to the jungle. The insects, birds, and other animals can be heard all night. It is amazing but quite loud if you are used to a quiet sleep.

    Aundrea2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing experience to stay there. First, the house is set on the border of the rain forest. So, I was close to everything (beach, nationals parks, markets, restaurants...). It was quiet and neat place. The owner is amazing. She helped me alot and gave me some inside tips about the area. She did everything so I could had that experience. I vivid recommand it if you seek tranquility and an human experience!

  • Maria Eugenia's house was perfect for our vacation in Manzanillo. Splendidly located in front of the beach it had everything we need to be very comfortable and at ease. The house is very cozy and with a very nice decoration, we love the garden and the terrace where we could rest fully. Very kind Katia the person who received and attended us, always attentive to our queries. We totally recommend this airbnb and we would return without a doubt!

    Alexia2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful beautiful house across the street from the beach ( would not recommend beach across the street, down the road is a wonderful beach ) beach across the street is wonderful to walk & take a beautiful morning stroll (Bring all your coffee & cream & sugar)

    Sandra2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Enchanting beach front Villa, tastefully decorated in a Balinese chic style. Wonderful open air concept with wraparound large screendoors/windows. The fans worked very well and no need for A/C. The W/D was a luxury and was deeply appreciated. The kitchen had everything one would need, should you choose prepare a meal at home. However, we also enjoyed eating the local specialty, coconut rice and beans with spicy chicken. There are also a couple of convenient stores a couple of blocks from the Villa. Communication with Maria Eugenia was quick and efficient and also with her wonderful Villa’s caretaker, Katia. We can’t wait to return!

    Enrique2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space, right across the street from a lovely beach

    Kara2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pinapple house. It’s right across the beach and the town is small & quiet. The nature is beautiful in the area & it’s walking distance to a national park. This is probably the nicest property in the area. We were welcomed & settled in warmly by Katja (the house keeper). Maria was very prompt in responding to all our questions and queries.

    Nina2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The pineapple house has a fantastic view of the ocean, very high ceilings with vigorous fans, and stylish Thai inspired decor and furniture. The fans are very useful to keep the general mustiness of Manzanillo at bay. The washer dryer is very handy after a hike in the often soggy and always enriching Gandaco park. Bring lots of your own groceries from a larger store and cook up a storm. Patio is lovely.

  • This was our favorite spot we stayed by far, my only complaint is the bed is not the most comfortable. However, spending your time in the trees with the birds and wildlife is amazing!!! It’s private for the most part and very well designed ! I wish we booked more nights here, for the price, and quietness of being away from the towns its my favorite!

    Jaina2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • I had an amazing stay at Colores Hotel with Nikolaos, I would recommend anyone to stay here, the room was spacious and very clean, the location is amazing in Manzanillo right next to the beach, and Nikoloas’s hospitality was amazing! I would not hesitate to book this again when I return to Manzanillo!!

    Ashley2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The beach is tranquila, not crowded an it’s in 30 meters from the hotel. You hear the ocean, when you go to bed, which is awesome. The guys have just started and they have a lot of to improve, but overall the place, Nikolaos and his wife, and the Dog On Hotel are incredible friendly. I’d definitely stay here again.

    Spend the night with the wildlife! Manzanillo Gandoca Wildlife refuge is beaming with life and beauty. Wake up with Howler Monkeys welcoming the day and hear the birds sing their songs as the morning light sets in. Manzanillo Wildlife Eco Lodge has 4 bedrooms, all with private entrances and bathrooms. There are a variety of eco tours departing right from the lodge. Stay a night or stay a week....
  • This was an amazing place! Within the refuge itself, tucked into the jungle and steps from the beach! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. If I ever make it back to Manzanillo I'd definitely stay there again.

    Mary Lee2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Google maps shows two places within the wildlife refuge. This one is Tarpon Lodge. Neither one is actually associated with the Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. The lodge is about a 20 minute walk from the edge of town, about 15 minutes inside of the wildlife refuge along the path. It’s maybe 100 yards from the beach. It’s a lovely place set within the rainforest. I could hear howler monkeys and toucans. Hairo and his wife were great hosts. The room came with mosquito netting for the bed. Hot water shower was available. Filtered water was abundant.There was a refrigerator for cold foods and leftovers but no cooking privileges. Which meant that it was at least a 20 minute walk to get food. But the town is along the beach as well. Being inside the refuge means being able to get an early start on hiking around. The map is pretty in accurate so I recommend a guide. My guide, Walter, was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone.

    Sue2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay right in the midle of the Gandoca Manzanillo Refuge, with a beautiful beach just in front. Amazing location, rooms are really cosy, hosts are super friendly and it is just a short walk from the entrance to the refuge. Really recommended!

    Manzanillo is a gorgeous stretch of coconut palm-lined beaches of the Caribbean Sea which meets the pristine jungles. The village is just a few miles from the border of Panama. It is a relatively quiet fishing village where you can catch your own fish to eat, or you could ask one of the local fishermen to catch your fish for you to cook on your own barbecue. The houses are all different and are in the typical Caribbean colours. Manzanillo is named after an ancient tree which stood in the village in the 1940s. Nowadays, it is one of the latest coolest, hip places to be on the Caribbean side – perfect for a quiet getaway – and has a unique atmosphere. It is an up-coming village with many new sodas, restaurants, shops and other businesses appearing so fast, it would be impossible to list them. The reef is just 200 metres offshore and you can scuba dive and see most of Costa Rica’s sea life. There are approximately 500 hectares of coral reefs that are abound with brightly coloured fish, sea anemones, sea urchins, sponges, lobsters and other marine creatures.
  • We chose this house because it is the most beautiful we saw on AirBnB, and it is more beautiful and comfortable than we imagined. Located in a strategic place, surrounded by trees, plants, flowers, wild animals. The kitchen has everything you could need, even for long periods of accommodation. The cleanliness was impeccable, as was the security. Comfortable beds, airy rooms, filled with natural light and a comfortable, airy full bathroom. A place to return many more times!

    Jose2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The setting should be the reason why you stay here. The wildlife comes to you! Completely a chilled space!

    Corey2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptionally great house! The view from the upper terrace is incredible! We stayed here for 5 nights - slept wonderfully! Everything is also available in the kitchen and bathroom to make you feel good!

    Uwe2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stylish house right in the jungle with lots of animals overhead.

    Gary2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This property is amazing! Beautiful and comfortable house, incredible gardens full of wildlife, and the caretaker family was warm and helpful. By far, the best property we've rented in the area. I don't wanna stay anywhere else in my next trip to Puerto Viejo.

    Alfredo2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Edgar2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Marco's place provides the most gorgeous and relaxing jungle experience possible. There is no TV but you do not care because you are watching a National Geographic episode off your deck every day. We experienced seeing a troop of howler monkeys come through the property and a sloth as well as toucans and other wildlife. The location is excellent for near by tours and we recommend visiting the Ara Project (Great Green Macaw Sanctuary) the Jaguar rescue center, and Caribeans chocolate tour. The house is well equipped, we recommend bringing a large beach towel for the beach as well as a few various spices for cooking. Fernando, the local care taker, is friendly and helpful and can assist with anything needed. We would also recommend bringing some binoculars to enable better viewing of the wildlife on the property.

    Inspired in our local surf reef break, Tambia point is located in front of a very privileged white sand beach, just cross the street and you are there! It is a very spacious cabin, with a beach view front porch. Good vibes and LOVE for our guests ❤
    Calm environment and easygoing people. A place to enjoy the nature. Restaurant, Supermarket and Cafe nearby.
  • Good location in front of the beach and good restaurant for a roots cabin.

    Clémence2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great view, convenient location

  • Tambia Point was one of our favorite places in Costa Rica. Not only the room has all the qualities necessary to spend a comfortable and exciting stay (go to the balcony and see the sea, the palm trees, the beach, and inside the apartment to hear the comfortable sound of the waves), but the attention of Marta and her entire family is wonderful. A plus: go down and have the best restaurant in the Caribbean (maybe same of Costa Rica), tasty, varied and always with surprises! Amazing breakfasts, same lunches and dinners ... we could not get out of there! Caribbean food and quality. The special mention that touches us is with Césmar, son of Marta and our favorite host of all those who have touched us, by far! that not only did we wait until late at night the day of our arrival (there was a problem on the route that made us arrive around midnight), but it even cooked us !! and I can not explain the delicious food that he made us in a few minutes, he cared for us and took care that our trip is the best possible. But not only that, but the pleasure of talking with him, was one of the best things in Costa Rica. With Césmar we understood the meaning of Pura Vida, he is! We hope to return soon !!! Now we have a friend Tico, in the Caribbean, in Tambia Point !! As we would say in Argentina, Césmar is the most! we miss him the whole trip !!! Bottom Line: Do not hesitate to choose this lodging to spend a few days in the Caribbean in the best way!

  • Had an excellent stay in Marta’s suite. The room was clean, quaint and the perfect size for two people. Being above the cafe was very convenient. The food there is great. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway in a small beach town.

    Chris2017-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • My favorite Airbnb of all time. Beautiful room, awesome view of the ocean, a place to eat downstairs, dogs to play with, and a 5 minute walk to the ocean. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I look forward to staying here again :)

    Maggie2017-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Marta was wonderful! She went out of her way to be accommodating and was very patient with our broken Spanish (even took time to teach us a bit!) The cafe downstairs has great food and is just across from the beach, so it was super relaxing to eat breakfast with the waves crashing. Loved it!

    Mariel2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place just in front of the beach!lovely small town and perfect hosts..thanks to Carlos and Marta for their great hospitality!Pura vida!

  • Isabels house is like a work of art, we were almost hoping for a rainy day to be able to enjoy it even more. manzanillo is a quiet place with great beaches. Hope to make it back one day.

    Jeff2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Isabel's house is so beautiful, you almost feel like you are in a tree house. We spent five days in Manzanillo and it was perfect. The house has everything you need and even more. The beach is close and you can walk there in 2 min.

    Irene2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really cool property behind the main road down the coast of Manzanillo. Definitely the most interesting place we have ever stayed! Communication was easy before, during and after our trip. Location was exactly as described on Waze so simple to get to. Check in was straight forward - as noted we brought our own drinking water with us. It’s all pretty open, with either proper windows or some netting which gives you the breeze in the evening and mosquito nets over the beds. Plus there’s a standing fan and overhead fan in the main bedroom. Loads of different sounds at night so definitely be prepared for scuttling and jungle sounds!

    Louise2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This house offers gorgeous design, convenient location, and a garden that provides amazing views from each window. it's also in the village of a thriving community, so renters here will learn a bit about life on the Caribbean coast. If you value architecture, access to the village, or nature, you will appreciate this stay.

    Alec2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the opportunity

    Randall2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Isabel was a really nice Host. She welcomed us, even so she had to get ready for a trip of her own too . Responding really fast . The house : Super nice place. Clean, comfortable, extraordinary design. Everything is open, good air inside the house. 5 min Walk to the main beach in manzanillo. Manzanillo itself doesn’t have anything special to offer. ( apart of the mixed Wildlife refugee )Few restaurants, one „grocery“. We enjoyed our time there but according to the bad weather we had, we where a little bit trapped in the house ( lots of rain ). Maybe we missed it, but we didn't find a decent bike rental in town. So when you come with rental car, you probably have to drive up heading to Puerto Viejo - on that way are bike rentals.

    Susanne2019-11-12T00:00:00Z

    Aurora2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • My grandmother, mom and I had an amazing 10 day stay at Casa Yumka! The house is beautiful and so unique with many personal touches and has everything that you could need. It is very comfortable, including the beds and the different places to relax inside and out, including 4 decks/balconies!! We loved lounging outside and watching the howler monkeys jump from tree to tree in the surrounding jungle. It truly felt like we were in paradise or as my Nana kept saying the “Garden of Eden”! Manzanillo is a perfect little village to escape the busier tourist spots. Everyone was very nice there and we loved eating at the local restaurants and sodas. The beach is beautiful too and is only a couple minutes walk from the house! Claudia was a very responsive and helpful host giving us travel tips for places to visit nearby and checking in frequently. And Yari, the property caretaker is wonderful too! It was nice knowing that she was always nearby to help if we had any issue. We will all dream of returning to Casa Yumka again! Thank you Claudia for your hospitality and Yari for all your care!

  • The home and location are great. It is off the beaten path however about two blocks from the beach. There are numerous outside sitting areas for different weather. A national park nearby. Communication was very good throughout our stay. We heard great howler howler monkeys and saw some along with other animals, birds and insects. The best.

    Miriam2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Karla2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia's place is a very comfortable landing pad right in the town of Manzanillo, but surrounded by trees and rainforest so that it feels very private. We saw amazing birds and howler monkeys right outside the house and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and terrace after long, wonderful days of swimming and biking. Yuri and Claudia were always kind and responsive. We stayed a week and loved the area.

    Rebecca2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent and unique place! Its main strength is its big open-air common space with a long, attractive table, just as shown in the photos. It's nestled within some lush landscaping, which the common space overlooks. It was extremely clean when we arrived. Given is open-air nature, occasional sweeping is necessary during windy periods. The kitchen is simple and complete. We appreciated that Carlos set us up with a full 5-gallon water dispenser. The bedrooms are simple, but the beds are super comfortable and given the nice common space, you really only need the bedrooms for sleeping! The bedrooms (and beds themselves) are screened, which helps with the mosquitoes. The bathrooms are also nice, and the shower gets nice and hot. Carlos was extremely helpful and very responsive to all requests. It's great to be "in town", walking distance to a few grocery shops, restaurants, and the main attraction, the wildlife refuge: a beautiful stretch of beach and forest.

    Derek2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • The home was wonderful and very close to the beaches and the wildlife refuge. Carlos was a great host, was very responsive, and was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and activities.

  • Beautiful cabin with an unbeatable location to spend a few quiet days facing the Caribbean. Great kindness of the hostess, Amanda. Easy access and proximity to the best beaches, such as Punta Uva / Arrecife. Also close to Puerto Viejo and its reggae wave. Good for moving by car or by rented bicycle. I would return without hesitation.

    Norberto Fabian2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • It is literally beachfront, you can walk about 30 meters and the water is already touching your feet, which is awesome. The apartment has a spacious kitchen, nice bathroom and enough beds for 5 people to sleep there, it is also fully equipped to cook and eat. Amanda has some books and table games in case you want to read or play with your friends.

    Mario2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda's place was soooo incredible! We stayed with our two year old for 6 days and felt right at home immediately. The location is perfect being right across from the beach and so close to the wildlife refuge and walking distance to a handful of small restaurants. Amanda was a true gem of a host and very knowledgeable about the area. She booked a guided hike for us the first day with Tino which was so great, however, unless you are used to hiking with a baby or toddler through the jungle I recommend skipping it if they are under the age of five. There was more mud than expected and took about 5.5 hours for a half day. It was totally worth her meltdown! Haha

    Christy2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you like close contact with nature, tranquil environment and laid back atmosphere don't think twice come visit and stay at Amanda's place.

    Saul2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very kind and professional Amanda know very good Costa Rica, she offers great tips and suggestion , we had a great experience.

    Vincenzo2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda's place was fantastic! The beach is right out the front door and everything you need in walking distance. The place was clean and had everything we needed. Amanda was an exceptional host who took amazing care of us to make sure we had the best experience. We would definitely come back!

    Robert2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • The other reviewers are right. Amanda is an amazing host. We felt that she was helpful, genuine, and an all around cool person. The property was super cozy, with great natural air flow, and the constant sound of surf rolling in the background. The community is funky, charming, and not overly-touristy, with a distinct Afro-Caribbean vibe. Great location with easy access to the rest of the Caribe Sur and the Mandoca Wildlife Refuge, but still somewhat remote by virtue of it's small, mostly generational local population, and Manzanillo being the last town in the Southern Caribbean of CR. At Amanda's recommendation, we took a guided tour of the Wildlife Refuge with a fantastic local guide, Tino. We saw all kinds of wildlife that we may had not otherwise noticed. If you are an adventurous eater, be sure to have the Rondon at Soda Mima, available on Sundays or by special request. It is a Caribbean seafood stew in fresh coconut milks with a light curry flavor and all kinds of seafood and fish parts. It is messy and delicious, and well worth the effort. We would gladly visit Casa del Mar again!

    Chris2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wow!! What a wonderful little village, great Casita to stay in, great snorkeling, national park for hiking is fabulous ( recommend doing it with my favorite local guide first), and best of all your host Amanda!! Could not ask for a better host to make your vacation so memorable!!! Would highly recommend Casa del Mar and Amanda for your next vacation. I will certainly be coming back. Thank you again Amanda you are the best!!!

    Kandace2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing!!! I wish I could live there. Private, in the jungle, yet a short drive or even walk to one of the most tranquil beaches in the area. Great communication and a very tropical, airy feeling, all tropical hardwoods, open to the jungle. We had a daily show put on by spider monkeys in the trees around the house, and heard birds and howler monkeys every day as well.local area has it all, Puerto Viejo with lots of quaint fun restaurants and bars, and closer, Manzanillo, sleepy village at the end of the road with some basic services and a couples places to eat. We loved it all!

    Hervé2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a great jungle location perched on a hill if you like to be immersed in jungle sounds & off the beaten path. Location is great for exploring the beaches at Uva & Manzanillo. The number of restaurants has improved at the southern end of the coast so you really don't have to travel back into Puerto Viejo. The house is very open for enjoying the feeling of being in the natural environment.

    William2018-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We have had a perfect time in casa Las Ranitas. We specially loved the location of the house in the middle of jungle with jungle sounds and jungle animals around us. Communication with Monica was good, she also arranged the transfer in and out for us.

  • House clean, safe and very close to the beach! Something important does not have curtains, and the bathroom does not have doors, something strange but for the rest everything is fine!

  • We were a family of 4 staying at this beautiful home for 2 weeks. The house had everything we needed. As mentioned before Luzi and Fernando are there to make you feel super welcome and help with anything. Manzanillo is a gorgeous place. We saw animals everyhwere many more than we paid to see on tours. Its around a 10 min walk to the village. We hired bikes for 10 days from a great wee place in Puerto Viego. The ones from the house are ok for a day or so. The restaurant/soda at the right just before maxi is the best food in town. Wuacha or something like that:)

    Gill2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • House is nice, quiet, save and good located, with good equiped kitchen. Only issue we had with internet quality. Marco is activ in ineternet communication. Staff at the place is very helpfull. We can reccomand staying in this house.

  • Very nice house in a very nice place

    Bettina2017-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at the jungle house. It was cool enough at night that having no ac wasn't an issue. Puerto Viejo is just a short 10-15 min drive away with many choices to eat. The property managers were very helpful and eager to help us with anything we needed. They also brought us coconuts, bananas etc almost daily. A magical house in a quiet location in the middle of nature.

    Candace2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • a private and quiet place as well as safe with local people nearby (if needed only) in the tropical nature

    Spend the night on our amazing jungle property. Manzanillo-Gandoca Wildlife refuge is beaming with life and beauty. Wake up with Howler Monkeys welcoming the day and hear the birds sing their songs as the morning light sets in. Manzanillo Wildlife Eco Lodge has 4 bedrooms, all with private entrances, and bathrooms. There are a variety of eco tours departing right from the lodge. Stay a night or stay a week....
  • What I want to emphasize with my family is the hospitality and service of Jairo and his family. Their disposition and the breakfasts, lunches and dinners they prepare, are very tasty, with ingredients from the area, but an essential one, a lot of love !!!

    Ana Cristina2019-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We were expecting a rustic, basic sort of stay here. What we got was a super clean room with comfortable beds, air conditioning if you wished to use it, a hot shower, a wonderful breakfast each morning, a beautiful oceanfront view, and amazing wildlife viewing. This was truly one of those stays that surpassed all expectations. We arrived after a short walk down a beautiful nature trail. All along this trail lies amazing beaches with shade provided by palm trees. The sand is white and the beaches are pristine and quiet. You can easily find a sheltered cove to yourself. We were welcomed the lodge by Jairo and his wife, the property managers. Jairo speaks English very well, and was able to guide us to the best spots to snorkel, eat, etc. He also owns a boat and can take you out to see dolphins and other snorkeling sites if you have time (we didn't). We all wished we had spent the whole 10 days in Costa Rica here. We had stayed on the Pacific (near Tamarindo), Lake Arenal area, and finally here. We enjoyed the other places, but this was by far our favorite. It just had a less touristy vibe (although there were tourists around). We were traveling with our two sons (ages 21, 23) and there are so many beaches in this area, and a very wonderful Caribbean vibe. The locals are super friendly and the food is amazing. The beaches are all pristine and perfect. There are abundant coral reefs with so many fish to see. Jairo lent us snorkeling equipment to use at the lodge. Jairo also prepared us a fresh caught lobster and snapper dinner at the lodge, at our specified time. Stay here! You will NOT regret it. It would be great for families, couples, anyone who loves swimming, beach, surfing, biking, walking. So much to do in this area. There are monkeys that hang out all the time in the trees above, howling monkeys which can be viewed in the early morning, many lizards, and a resident sloth!

    Private property in the outskirt of the village of Manzanillo. The main house consists of 4 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and 2 bathrooms, overlooking the tropical gardens and a small plunge pool directly off the back porch. It is located inside the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Refuge with access to hundreds of birds and wildlife viewing. Howler monkeys in the huge trees that surround the house and cabin are always around to remind you of the jungle right outside the gates of the property. World class Tarpon fishing, turtle and dolphin watching just minutes from the house. Easy access to the great restaurants and wonderful shopping on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Tours can be arranged for rafting, river trips to visit indigenous tribes that are located in the Talamanca region. This property is only 15 kilometers from the Panama border with the best beaches that Costa Rica has to offer only 1 minute away. Incredible hiking, birdwatching or mountain biking just outside your front door.
    The house is located in a big piece of land, therefore, has an excellent (URL HIDDEN) neighbors close to you!!!
  • Pedro was an amazing host, he welcomed us with kindness and was always aware of our needs. We found the house incredible, I think we just need to equip the kitchen a little more, everything went super. The property is very nice and safe, the beach just 200 meters and 20mins from the town.

    Vivi2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This house was absolutely gorgeous and in an amazing location about a 3 minute walk from the beach. No air conditioning but that was okay for us, and there weren’t very many mosquitos. Heard the howler monkeys each morning and saw some beautiful birds from the porch. Bring soap and you’ll need to fully stock the kitchen yourself as a heads up! I would love to return to casa oasis someday.

    Perrin2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great house a couple of blocks from the beach. Pedro was very responsive when issues occurred. We enjoyed our stay.

    Alex2018-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A group of friends stayed at Pedro's gorgeous place in Manzanillo for a surprise birthday celebration for my husband, and we could not have chosen a better place. It was spacious, clean, and located on a beautiful property surrounded by lush vegetation. It is only a short walk from the beach, great sodas, and the amazing wildlife refuge. Everything you could ask for on the beautiful Caribbean Coast! Pedro was super helpful throughout, helping us coordinate bicycles, taxis, laundry, and any other requests we had. Certainly the highlight was the lovely freshwater swimming pool, small and perfect any time of day. Already dreaming of coming back!

    Ruchi2018-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful place to stay. Big and comfortable. In with nature but a 5 min walk to the beach. Wesley was a good host that helped us with all the basics.

  • If you're reading these reviews and considering coming here - you definitely should and you will be so thankful you did. All the reviews are written with passion about how awesome this experience is and they are not wrong. This is a one of a kind Airbnb, staying 25m in the forest canopy, with no one near you except the jungle wildlife. It is also not just a night in the tree house, it also includes personal 2 X ~45 minute guided hikes (in and out) where Peter will help spot all sorts of wildlife. Staying here also helps protect the forest as Peter is usings the money to purchase more of the surrounding forest and make sure it is protected. Once in a lifetime, book it :)

    Kadin2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Hard to find words .... an amazing experience and Peter was the perfect host. Peter has a very calm nature, which is a help to anyone who might find the climb up to the tree house difficult. A good standard of fitness is needed.

    Sophia2019-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you crave adventure, knowledge, love plants, and animals- book peters space! It’s the ultimate glamping experience but it’s so much more. So grateful we could experience the jungle in this way. Can’t wait to return to stay and learn for longer.

    Charlene2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to experience a wildlife adventure.

    Brigitte2018-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Hands down one of the best experiences of our life. Peter is an incredible person who takes so much pride in his passion. The treehouse is unparalleled and it was bc of Peter's hospitality that we felt so at home and natural in the treetops. Peter went out of his way to make us comfortable. The dinner and breakfast were outstanding and hearing Peter's journey of building the treehouse was so inspiring. He is brilliant and it was because of his resilience and determination that we got to experience his dream. DEFINITELY coming back to this little piece of paradise.

    Sarah2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was hands down the most incredible experience of my life. I have traveled the world and can count on one hand places that brought me as much joy as Peter's treehouse. Toucans singing and monkeys jumping all on the top of the rainforest where his beautiful creation awaits. This place will not be a hidden treasure for long, mark my words! Above all else, Peter is unlike anyone I have ever met. His passion for nature and intelligence will leave you in awe if you are fortunate enough to learn about his background and masterpiece of a treehouse. From showing us over 5 different species of frogs on our hike to the treehouse, to delivering an incredible sunset dinner and breakfast, you will not be able to truly grasp the beauty of it all unless you experience it yourself. Thank you, Peter! I will absolutely be back again.

    Luke2018-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing, once in a lifetime experience. If you want a true treehouse experience, you need to stay here. My fiancé and I had a wonderful adventure, from hiking through the rainforest to climbing up the tree to watching the howler monkeys and toucans. We hope to come back and do this again sometime! Peter is a passionate individual with a wealth of experience and knowledge.

    Elizabeth2018-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • An unforgettable night !!! We joined Yann in Manzanillo, this one then brought us on the spot, we did a little treck in the primary jungle where we could see frogs, monkeys, snake. Then arrived at this observatory, we climbed up to admire this magnificent show, just sublime. We saw monkeys, toucans, parrots really everything was there to have a good time. In the morning Peter brought us a sublime breakfast that did us the greatest good. Really an experience of madness, I recommend you to spend a night in the observatory of Peter, a very beautiful experience.

    la casa se ubica dentro de una hermosa finca tan solo 1.5 kms de la playa de Manzanillo .El transporte público pasa a 500 metros .
  • We had a wonderful stay at Casa Turquesa. Our family of four (two kids- 14 and 7) found this place to be very charming and rustic. We like to camp and spend time outdoors, so the open nature of the house was comfortable for us, though I imagine not everyone would enjoy the exposed kitchen and lack of screens around the downstairs area and in the bedroom. We used the kitchen for almost every meal, and kept the windows in the bedroom open during the day, and insects were present, but not a big issue. We awoke each morning to the sounds of birds and howler monkeys and fell asleep to the sound of rain on the tin roof. The house is in the jungle and a quick drive to Manzanillo. It felt private, but not isolated. Staying here was a unique and beautiful experience for our adventurous family and Luis was a wonderful, thoughtful, and responsive host.

    Pura vida. The place is in the center of Manzanillo beach. The main building is 30 meters from the water. 3 super markets and many restaurants in walking distance. What we offer is a very basic and simple accomodation but with the sounf of the waves every night. A very safe, simple and super relaxing place. Sea front room with private bathroom
    Spacious rooms with private shower and toilet. Mad service daily and laundry service with an extra cost
    30 meters from the sea. 300 meters from Manzanillo National park. Walking distance from punta uva and just a 15 minutes drive from puerto viejo if you are looking for nightlife
  • We had the best stay at Nikolaos and his girfriend. Unfortunately we had some bad luck with the weather and a minor injurie, but we couldnt have picked a better place to stay. Clean room, comfotable bed, close to the beach and all of the restaurants, and our hosts went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We got to borrow their kitchen to make food and Niko even drove us to the doctor and helped us with everything we needed. We will definetly recommend and definetly come back!! Looking forward to seeing how the café turn out!

    Lena2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

  • The place is situated in the center of Manzanillo. The location is amazing just in front of the beach (it just a few meters away)! The sea view was impressive and during the night the sound of the Caribbean waves kept us company until we fell asleep. The rooms are simple, as expected. There was no kitchen in the room but there are several dining options in the area. The Wifi was working well and there was privacy. The hosts are great persons, very friendly and seem to be putting a real effort in the property. I would say it is excellent value for money!

Kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself and A/C works great. Tammy is always around to check on things and help out with anything. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice place to chill in Manzanillo for a couple days or couple weeks.

    Terry2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, near the beach

    Gaudy2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very quiet and safe ( a bit more lively on Sat and Sun). Rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable. Kitchen is very well equipped. You can find plenty of sodas, but a bit overpriced. In the neighborhood you can buy fresh fish and lobsters at a very reasonable price. There are plenty of beaches and places to walk and take pics. The only minus: It would be appropriate to have quick response from the host. During our days prior our arrival and the same day of it, we had no answers to our messages.

    Olga2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice place. Nice kitchen and huge terrace. The rooms are nice. Good A/C and furnitures. Really nice to stay there. Close to the beach.

    Régis2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, this place and it's location was by far and away the best I've stayed in in Costa Rica, you can't ask for a more paradise. The location is great to walk to dinner, the beach or the national park. Just east of the house you'll get to the national park which offered the best hiking and more amazing sites, smells and sounds of any hike I did in Costa Rica. Snorkeling off the main beach to the east was really good. Also to the west of the national park enterance was really good but had a very strong current this time of year which made it a challenge. Surfing at the West end of Playa Grande was the best surfing location I've experienced to date (Turn down the road across from the "El Refugio" restaurant a few kilometers outside town and you'll hit it. The house keeper Tammy is the best, very friendly and accommodating! I ate at the restaurant behind the house "Cool and Calm" epic Caribbean food!
