Very beautiful house !

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 weeks in Casa Magdalena in May 2013. We had a wonderful time here.
During this one-year trip around the world, we stayed in a lot of places and this one was the best!
The house is beautiful. So is the garden. Because it’s all built in wood, we really felt comfortable and had a peaceful feeling. The house is very well equipped, the rooms are big and with the mosquitos fans, it’s gorgeous. We had a few rainy days but it was not a problem because there is plenty of space here!
The pool was a nice surprise for us because it wasn’t build when we booked. And it was perfect. Big enough so adults can swim, but not too deep so our three children can well play, even the youngest (2 years old).
The neighbours (and their animals !) can be a little noisy, but it is not that annoying. The children could have their nap on the afternoon.
There is all that we can need by walking distance.
The beach was a little bit far for us because we have young children, but you can easily reach the see in 15 min walk.
Doris, you are a very nice host, very thoughtful , we wish you all the best.

our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
After staying in hermosa and chirripo, we decided to visit cahuita and stay at casa magdalena. Doris was nice enough to help us with a ride to the house from the bus station and was waiting for us when we arrived.
The house was gorgeous, surrounded by giant trees and flowers. I liked that we were in a neighborhood located just outside of town and not in the whole tourist-mix of cauhita, it was very relaxing. Everything we needed was there-towels, linens, etc. The fully-equipped kitchen was wonderful to have- with the mercado just down the street, we could make our morning coffee and stay in to eat if we chose to do so.
My favorite thing was to get up early, make coffee and wake up to the sounds of the monkeys and birds(a few roosters, as welll....but expected here!) on the front porch.
My husband and I were traveling with another couple and we had plenty of room and privacy. We rented bikes from town for $6/day so we could get groceries and such, but it's not required to get around. Cahuita is a beautiful town that has not yet been spoiled by tourism and i highly reccommend getting to know some of the locals; we had a lot of fun meeting some of the people. Also--upon coming to the Carribbean side, I was told to be so careful about everything--I was super paranoid! This side of CR has a bad rap. I had visions of people stealing my purse or breaking into our house--it kind of ruined it for me at first. Just be smart. From what I could see, the people of Cahuita are kind and laid-back---the monkeys on the beach were the only ones that came close to stealing my stuff!
Doris, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place with us! We hope to be back soon :)

family break

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a very enjoyable week at Casa Magdalena. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival and the owner, Doris, did everything to make us welcome and to be helpful. The kids loved the big garden to play in and we made the most of the spacious balcony for playing too. The location of the house is lovely - away from the town's hustle and bustle but close enough for us to walk into the centre with the children to shop, go to the beach and eat out. The house is well-equiped for a family and we felt very at home. Just hope we will be able to return another time!

Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5
Dieses Haus ist wirklich ein Traum, ich habe mich dort so wohl gefühlt. Man hat alles was man braucht. Schöne Zimmer, sehr großes Wohnzimmer mit TV, die Küche ist auch mit allem was das Herz begehrt ausgestattet. Die drei Schlafzimmer sind auch sehr hübsch. Der Garten ist sehr schön angelegt und man findet etliches zum selber ernten und Tiere beobachten macht auch Spaß!!
Es ist dort sehr ruhig, so dass man seinen Urlaub absolut geniessen kann.
Internet sowie auch eine Waschküche bietet das Haus unter anderem auch.
Wenn man ein PKW hat ist man in zwei Minuten mitten im Zentrum, aber auch zu Fuß leicht erfreichbar.
Die Strände sind nicht weit und ein Abstecher nach Puerto Vargas oder Puerto Viejo mit PKW oder Bus.sind auch schnell zu erreichen.
Ein Bus hält direkt unten an der Straße.
Es gibt überall Ventilatoren, falls es einem Mal etwas zu warm wird (kann passieren)
Wenn man Tiere liebt und Flora und Fauna gerne betrachtet ist man an diesem Ort goldrichtig, es lohnt sich wirklich dort eine Zeit zu verweilen.

Gemütliches Ferienhaus mit großem Garten

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 4 Tage bei großer Hitze (38°C) in dem Ferienhaus. Durch viele Ventilatoren und großen Fenstern war die Hitze erträglich. Das Bad, der kühlste Raum, konnte gut zum Abkühlen genutzt werden, indem man sich auf die kalten Fliesen legte. Die Küche ist zweckmäßig ausgestattet, so daß man sich sehr gut selbst versorgen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants befinden sich in Laufnähe. Ein Auto ist nicht notwendig. Gute Busverbindungen.

Einzig kleiner Minuspunkt war der Hund der Nachbarn, der in ca. 10m Entfernung nachts häufig bellte.

wunderschönes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5
Casa Magdalena ist genauso schön, wie es die veröffentlichten Fotos zeigen und die positiven Beurteilungen belegen.

Es ist ein geräumiges Ferienhaus, geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sauber und hell, gut ausgestattet. Wir waren dort 4 Tage in der Regenzeit und waren froh, ein regenfestes Dach über dem Kopf zu haben. Dabei hatten wir zu fünft genug Platz zum Zusammensein oder zum Rückzug: das Haus bietet genug Raum für alle Wünsche. Geschützt vor dem Regen hatten wir trotzdem Möglichkeit, die Tiere und Pflanzen im Garten zu bewundern: entweder von der Terrasse oder durch Öffnen des riesigen Fensters auf einer Hausseite. Ein toll gebautes Haus für die Tropen mit viel Luft!

Zwei kleine Probleme: Mit der Costa-Ricanischen Kaffeezubereitung (eine Art Strumpf als Filter) kamen wir nicht zurecht. Durch die hohe Feuchtigkeit war es nachts recht kalt und uns fehlten Bettdecken. Aber wir waren tagsüber viel zu beschäftigt, um Doris darum zu bitten, die sehr hilfsbereit ist und uns sicher weitergeholfen hätte. Vielleicht nehmen wir bei unseren nächsten Reise in die Tropen eine leichte Wolldecke mit, denn sie fehlte uns nicht nur in Cahuita, sondern auch an anderen Orten auf unserer Costa Rica Rundreise. Wie schon Humboldt beobachtet hat, können in den feuchten Tropen Nachttemperaturen von rund 22 Grad als kühl empfunden werden.

Besonders gefallen hat uns die Wanderung im Cahuita-Nationalpark und hervorragend gespeist haben wir im Restaurant Sobres las Olas am Strand von Cahuita
