CASA ZORRO IN PUERTO VIEJO

Puerto Viejo House Rental Photos and Description

Private Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Does your upcoming visit to Costa Rica include the lush and tropical Caribbean coast? Planning to stay a few days in Puerto Viejo? Why not try something different from the drab and plain cabinas and stay in a place that provides all the amenities of home? Stay at VRBO's highest rated private home in Puerto Viejo.

Casa Zorro Guest House is your home away from home. This spacious house provides you with two nicely appointed bedrooms, each with a private bath. The master suite sleeps 2 adults and features a walk-in closet and dressing area, and a huge shower with hot water. The other bedroom has two twin beds and a standard double bed. The adjacent bathroom also has hot water in the shower. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, utensils, and cookware that you need to prepare anything from a simple breakfast to a gourmet dinner. You’ll also find a full sized range and oven, microwave, coffee maker, blender, slow cooker, and toaster. The living room is large and comfortable with two sofas. You'll spend a lot of time outside on the veranda watching the local wildlife, enjoying your favorite beverage, or just relaxing in the Adirondack chairs with a good book. Local telephone service is included, and wi-fi Internet access is provided at no additional charge.

Casa Zorro is located in Puerto Viejo, so you are only a hundred meters from the beach and two blocks from the great restaurants and nightlife of this quaint village. Just to the north is the popular town of Cahuita, including Cahuita National Park. And just to the south are the towns of Playa Cocles, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, and Manzanillo where you will find Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. Miles of unspoiled beach await you.

There is so much to see and do in Costa Rica’s “forgotten” Atlantic coast. Whether an organized half or full day guided tour or an adventure on your own, Puerto Viejo offers a wide variety of local area tours and attractions. Whether it is walking along the beach, hiking through the jungle, surfing, snorkeling, swimming, white-water rafting, tours of butterfly and botanical gardens, wildlife sanctuaries, or just taking in the sun on the secluded and pristine beaches, you will surely find something for you.

My very first trip to Costa Rica was on a cruise. The port of call was Limon, and I was so impressed, I thought if I ever retire, Costa Rica would be the place I'd want to call home. When I finally did retire, I moved to Costa Rica and fell in love with the Caribbean coast. I purchased land in Puerto Viejo and eventually built Casa del Zorro. I hope you love the area, and enjoy my home, which I happily share with you.

Tony Waddell purchased this house in 2000

The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is so rich in diversity with miles of unspoiled and uncrowded beaches. While certainly not remote and isolated, it is refreshing to visit a coastline that is unmarred with high-rise hotels and all-inclusive resorts. The area is stunningly beautiful, and the people are very friendly and helpful.

Staying in a private home is so much better than checking into a hotel that you may not be familiar with. And the house is so close to the beach as well as to the stores, restaurants, and shops. It is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the center of town. The owner lives in Costa Rica and the property is professionally managed, providing you with the best service possible.

A Great Getaway

Casa Zorro has a great location, close to center town and beach for those that do not have or wish to use their car. The house was fully equipped, very secure, clean, spacious and comfortable. Being able to bring pets is a huge bonus. The large veranda permits a relaxing way to start the morning or end the day. The site manager was quick and courteous in addressing our needs (annoying fridge issue). A great place to chill out. Looking forward to returning.

Lovely and Relaxing Vacation

My family of four, 2 adults and 2 young teenagers just arrived back from our 2 week stay at Casa Zorro. Prior to arrival, Tony, the owner, was always very quick and thorough with his answers to our inquiries, so we had a good idea of what to expect. This is our first vacation not at a resort and we definately enjoyed it.
Casa Zorro is a lovely home and it is very comfortable. It is right down a lane beside town. We walked everywhere as there are many restaurants, shops, vendors and 5 grocery stores all in the area. The best feature for us was sitting on the lovely porch with a morning coffee, watching the various birds flit in the flowers in the front. Usually around 5 am we heard howler monkeys in the distance.
The house is very safe which really set my mind at ease.
As for foood, we ate at about six restaurants including Stashus con fusion (our personal favourite), Banana Azul (yummy with a great setting and beach), Koki Beach (nice decor at night) and Laslo's Catch of the Day (no sign but amazing fish right around the corner). Bread. And Chocolate has delcious breakfasts and baked goods to bring back to the house.
We also found it convenient to pick up groceries, meat and chicken from the butcher or tender skewers from the evening vendors. The stove is easy to use and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. We had fun making our own blender pina coladas too.
The beach is close by and though the closest part was more of a surfer beach, we walked along and brought picnic lunches to the quieter sections for some fun in the smaller waves.

We highly recommend this property and would like to thank Tony for his kindness and for sharing his charming home with us.

Great location, big home

We enjoy the Casa for three nights for a quick trip up from the bulk of our travels being in Panama. The house is quite large and perfect for an extended family to enjoy time together. You can't beat the location--- very walkable to downtown, the beaches, several activities, or cabs if you need a lift somewhere. The house was very clean -- though like everywhere in the tropics, it's just hard to escape bugs and you need to clean thoroughly if you are preparing food. The numerous locks on the doors helped to keep us feel quite safe. We enjoyed having some movies to watch and space to spread out. Thanks for opening up your home! I would recommend this spot.

Great experience for whole family

All in all the house was a great find for our whole family. The house was bigger than I expected and it was well kept. We took our baby with us so safety was ou biggest priority. The whole family felt safe the whole vacation. Our only issue was the lack of air conditioning. It is mostly our fault for reserving a place without air conditioning and the house has several fans; but it was miserably hot and humid.

Zorro experience Sept 22-25

The listing accurately described the house and it was actually a bit bigger and nicer than we had expected. The house was clean and in a lovely area where we were close to town, yet were able to feel far enough away that town noises did not keep us up at night. The property was lovely and the instructions for locking and maintaining the security of the house were easy to follow and well articulated on the emails sent to us prior to our visit. I would recommend the chocolate croissants and coffee at the bakery around the corner from the house as a lovely start to a morning! In addition, one morning there was actually a sloth hanging out on the fence...which was a highlight for all of us. Only two small complaints, the water tank could use a cleaning, which we noticed when we were checking water levels to make sure we were not running the tank down too far with showers and such. In addition, the owner is not flexible with possible changes, as we had a friend coming to visit us while we were there, but in order to maintain the agreed-upon number of people staying, my husband and i had to rent a room elsewhere. This is understandable based on our rental agreement and not a big deal, but could have been handled a bit more kindly. Overall a great stay however for our group!

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for the nice review you gave Casa Zorro. I think your remarks will help others when making a decision on where to stay in Puerto Viejo. Your group was much larger than I normally accommodate. I arrived in the afternoon of the day you left (before the cleaning crew arrived) and I thank you for the care and respect that you gave the house. Property owners are always a little concerned when a big group of young adults arrive. It sounds like you'd consider Casa Zorro for your next trip to Puerto Viejo and I'd be glad to rent to you again.
