Truly lovely little home

  • 5 of 5

The BEST part about this house is the location. First, it's just a short walk through the jungle to a lovely, isolated beach -- and if you walk just short bit to the right, you'll find an awesome tide pool, just right for kids. We loved the outdoor living area. We saw numerous sloths in the garden area, including a mama with her baby. And the outdoor shower is PRICELESS. We felt very well taken care of by the host and felt extremely safe with our belongings in this property. Just a note that this is the tropics, so there will be large insects and mosquitoes and your stuff will never be completely dry -- but it's worth it to spend time in paradise. Oh, and we didn't rent a car for our family of six. We rented bikes and got around JUST fine. I highly recommend getting a scoop of homemade ice cream at Alice's and kayaking the Punta Uva river. Enjoy your stay!!

Increíble experiencia en el Caribe!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mi familia y yo vinimos a Costa Rica para encontrar esa belleza que la caracteriza: mar y naturaleza en un mismo escenario. Y definitivamente la encontramos en este lugar, y quedarnos en Gingerbread House, desde el 7 al 14 de diciembre, hizo de esta experiencia una increíble.

Cuando llegamos no solo nos encontramos con una bienvenida muy amigable y acogedora por parte del dueño, el cual se tomó el tiempo de recomendarnos playas, restaurantes y hasta sitios turísticos en la zona, sino con una casa muy limpia y con todo lo necesario para hacer de esta experiencia lo más segura, cómoda y relajante posible: hamacas para descansar en medio de la naturaleza y el sonido de monos aulladores, una amplia terraza como punto de encuentro familiar, una cocina con todo lo indispensable para cocinar todo tipo de comidas y cuartos bastante amplios y cómodos. Eso sin contar que la playa Cocles se encuentra a unos pasos de la casa, literalmente, lo cual fue ideal para salir a correr en las mañanas por ella y tener todo el mar a nuestra disposición cuando queramos. Realmente tener un espacio sin mucha gente a tu alrededor genera paz y lo valoramos muchísimo en este viaje.

Y una de las cosas más increíbles, y que no vamos a olvidar, es tener la experiencia de solamente tener que alzar la vista para ver monos, tucanes y hasta un oso perezoso muy cerca a nosotros. Tanto niños como adultos disfrutamos esta estadía plenamente. Y fue tan increíble la experiencia que nos encantaría regresar a Costa Rica y, dentro de ella, a Gingerbread House para repetir la experiencia vivida.

great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cocles. the house is a clean, basic option for accommodation, on a beautiful beach, in an excellent location. what a great way to start the day.......get up & walk 150 ft to the beach, enjoy a walk or run, & then dive into the ocean. WOW! we biked to the beaches from puerto viejo all the way to manzanillo. we biked to restuarants nightly (many great options close by). the sloth refuge is close by & was very interesting. we also enjoyed the local wildlife....howler monkeys, sloths, & beautiful birds. canopy tours, white water river rafting, hiking in primary forests, & more. something for everyone. highly recommended!
