House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)
This private, 2000 square foot house, is located in front of a rivermouth and a 5 mile long beach. It is very laid back with a spectacular view over the playa Coyote coast, the river and the surroundings. The beach is excellent for swimming and surfing and one of the safest at the Guanacaste coast. By car it’s a 3 min. drive. Because of it’s safety it’s very suitable for kids and ‘surfers to become’. For the more experienced surfers Punta Coyote ‘hides’ a very good, but still unknown, surf spot. The Coyote area is also an excellent place for sport fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and biking. And not unimportant: many good and inexpensive restaurants are nearby.
The house is situated on a hill with on both sides two little valleys. That's why you can always feel a cool breeze through the house. Upstairs the house you will find the huge living room and a beautiful well equipped kitchen with all amenities you need for preparing your meal at home. Also up you will have one of the two Bedrooms. The upper bedroom has a queen size bed and a single bed. The huge bedroom downstairs has a king size bed. Both bedrooms have spectacular ocean view and spaced bathrooms.
The huge terrace upstairs invites you to relax on the lounge bed or in your hummock, reading a book, enjoying the view or for having your breakfast, lunch or dinner. The house is perfect for families or two couples because of the two widely spaced bedrooms.
Around the house there is a garden with a lot of opportunities to sit down and overlook the Guanacaste coast for miles and miles. Below the garden you can walk along the rest of the property (approx. 1 hectare). Here you’ll find all different kinds of trees and flowers. And when you’re lucky you might run into some of our neighbours like all kinds of birds, coaties, amadrillos or Howler Monkey’s.
It’s really a place where time stood still. A place where you go to relax and to enjoy the nature. And ‘the’ perfect place to start or end your roundtrip through Costa Rica.
From Liberia International Airport it's a 2,5 hour drive to our house. From San Jose International Airport it's about a 3,5 hour trip (incl. a 1 hour boat trip). Also the Punta Islita Airport is located 45 min. from our house. San Jose International Airport provides flights to and from Punta Islita Airport.

Carla Bierma purchased this House in 2005
Why Carla Bierma chose Bejuco
At 2004 my husband and I made a round trip through Costa Rica and visited family of friends of ours in Coyote. They bought a finca in the early '90 and divided it into lots for sale. We were astonished and amazed of the beauty and quietness of this area. 'Where on earth do you still have those places with almost nothing'. We were so excited that we decided to buy. We already had the wish to buy something in the tropics and decided that this should be the place. We bought the land in 2005 and landscaped it all by ourselves. We created two lots. At one we built this house and the other we have for sale (see link above). For us Puerto Coyote is 'the' place to be free. Free from all the hectic in Holland. The perfect hide away to relax, to enjoy the beach live, quietness and nature.

Our stay at Casa Verde was pretty amazing, the views are spectacular.. There could be a few updates, like in the kitchen and maybe a bbq added, but other than that it was a very pleasanr stay. We enjoyed the beaches, thr locals, snd the priperty manager, Minor, hes a very kind man.. When we were without internet, which by the way is very sketchy, he was happy to hook us up to the neighbors.. There is no tv, we that was no problem for us, we enjoy each other's company.. Over all, it's a very quiet relaxing place to spend your vacation..
Keep looking - you'll find better
Aesthetically pleasing - The house is as pictured in the ad.
Maintenance and hospitality are issues. While the place looked tidy - it is clearly
suffering from an absent owner. We spent two hours just cleaning the kitchen to make it
usable. The pots / pans and kitchen accessories were overused/broken. The coffee pot gross and unusable. Almost half the lights in the house were burnt out. Serious bug infestation - we know we're in Costa Rica - we know there are bugs - we've been renting houses for 10 years down here - but this house has a serious termite + ant + scorpion problem. The 30+ lizards living in the house was not enough to solve the problem. Frog living in the toilet - was amusing - but not a problem. When you get to this price point for a house you expect a lot better.
I'm so sorry to hear this. We already heard that some things in the kitchen should be replaced. But that is was so bad... We immediately will take some action. We also go to Costa Rica in July. So, we will take a lot of things with us to replace. About the bugs, we never heard this before, so that should be investigated. Well, thank you for your honesty. For us this information is very valuable to keep up the quality.
Seclusion, breathtaking views, beautiful beaches, wildlife galore and friendly people. What’s not to like at Casa Verde? My wife and I spent 10 days at this wonderful and spacious home and enjoyed every minute of it.
An all wheel drive vehicle is, of course, highly recommended (almost a necessity, in fact), but the roads from Liberia to Jicaral are all paved. From Jicaral to San Francisco de Coyote the road is the typical rough, dirt/rock one found in Costa Rica, but still, not too bad. Carla was kind enough to give us the satellite coordinates to Casa Verde (and they worked perfectly), but her directions from Liberia were so good the GPS really wasn't necessary.
The house (and the grounds surrounding it) was better than we expected. It is open and airy (which is a big plus, since there is no air conditioning) and the kitchen is well equipped. Also, the enormous tile shower was a great way to cool off from the heat.
And then there’s the view from the veranda. Well, words simply can’t do it justice. You have to experience it for yourself.
The property manager, Minor, couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly (although it’s a plus if you can speak some Spanish). Great guy.
We highly recommend Casa Verde. Thank you Carla for allowing us to visit your home!
Casa Verde Wonderful Home and outstanding Location
The Nicoya peninsula of CR is a wonderful place to visit. Casa Verde is a charming home that has an outstanding view of the river inlet and beach. We had no problems with the home and found the open layout just perfect for our needs. The sights and sounds every morning and evening were amazing. Every morning and evening we were greeted by the howlers, their haunting calls rolling across the terrain. We spent time exploring the area, so when you arrive do not hesitate to go down all the roads that lead toward the surf or up the hills. The area is not at all touristy and the town of San Francisco was a sleepy little place with a Soda, a bakery, hardware store and small grocery. Also there is a turtle conservation group located there.
It is recommended that you have a 4x4 for travel, the roads are all dirt a little rough, however it is well worth the trip if you are looking to experience a taste of the beauty and charm of CR.
Utmost relaxing vacation
We absolutely loved to stay in the Casa Verde. It`s beautiful, tasteful, comfortable, lightflooded, in the midst of green, perfect in any respect. We spent many hours just sitting on the spacious terrace admiring the spectacular views, that peacefully change over the day from sunrise until colorful sundown. We explored all the beaches, those with calm water and those with breakers, some really endless and lonely.There are a few nice places to eat out. We went for a trip to the south of the Nicoya Peninsula, the tropical landscape is amazing, and it`s an exiting and unique exprience to drive through rivers and on the beach at Manzanilla.
We would really love to spend another vacation at the Casa Verde, but then more than just five days!
Thank you Carla that we had the chance to know this amazing and wonderful place. Costa Rica is a wonderful country.
Relaxing and peaceful
We really appreciated our stay at Casa verde. We enjoyed playa Coyote with our 4 kids, good waves for all ages, safe current, nice walks to pick up shells, enormous sanddollars and other treasures from the sea. Except from local tico vacationners, we seem to almost have the 3 km long beach all to ourself!! It is fun to swim down the river at low tide. We loved to buy fish at the local fishermen cooperative, buy our veggies and fruits at the little supermarket in San Francisco, where the employees gave us an handful of "carambolas" every time we went!!!
We drove around the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula (Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, Cobano, Montezuma). The back coutry is rural and peasant. Even tough we were six in a Toyota Yaris, we would recommand to have a 4X4 to drive around...easier to cross river.... We went twice at the Karen Mongensen reserve where you can see very nice falls and swin in little pools in the middle of the tropical forest. Always looking for a place to swin , we also made a contest in the Bongo rio and tried to find the river's most beautiful rock .... surprisingly, our daughter found a crocodile's tooth.....and won the contest!!!
Casa verde is a magnificient villa, decorated with taste and surrounded by a nicely landscapped garden. Lots of birds, monkeys, coatis, iguanas, enormous grasshoppers and other small and curious creatures can be seen around the casa. Ruth and Minor, who were taking care of the house and garden, were discret, friendly and full of attention.
We would recommend this place if you like private and confortable gateways, nature, and peaceful vacations, that's your place!! Thank tou Carla for letting us use your place, we enjoyed every minute of our very relaxing 2 week long stay.
