Patricia purchased this house in 2012
What makes this property so unique is it's magic! Sometimes I never left for days just enjoying the privacy, peace and the wildlife. You can be outside in the nude. 8 ft. fence all around camoflauged by trees and bushes. The garden faires and frogs greet you every morning; if you put out papaya or bananas on the perch, you will be visited by birds and blue morphos in the afternoon. Be mesmerized by the moonlight and starlight that embrace the master bedroom.
I would definitely recommend this house! Very comfortable, lush, clean, the owner added alot of personal touch. Location is very private, but close to everything you need. Sara, the manager was very friendly and accommodating.
We had an amazing 8 days in Casa Stardust. Our hosts were proactive in attending to our needs, but gave us all the privacy we could want.
We saw so many animals - toucans, howlers, frogs and a little pig-like rodent that I can't recall the name of in the garden, and just outwith the compound we saw a sloth.
We were originally hoping to find a rental closer to Puerto Viejo, but Cahuita turned out to have a much nicer vibe and is less touristy, whilst still feeling safe and having nearby local amenities. We had a car and so getting to Puerto Viejo was easy.
We'd definitely stay here again!
Stayed here for four nights and had a great time. Sara was helpful and very accommodating! Thanks Sara! It's truly a jungle house, with all kinds of creatures roaming about. Birds, howler monkeys, lizards, frogs, the occasional dog and the mysterious beast that would eat all our leftovers from the fruit smoothies we made (with local Rum too).
Renting a bike is a must if you don't have a car, and check out the reggae bar for live music. Sobre les Olas is a great spot for dinner and close by. My only issue with the house is that an air conditioner would be greatly appreciated in the bedroom. Although by the 3rd night in we started to get used to it with just the fans.
Overall I thought it was a great little house. Off the beaten track,located on a quiet street. Also very good location in terms of being close to the beach. It is though about a 20 minute walk into town. Having access to bikes would love been perfect for this place. The house is very clean and orderly. My only complaint would be that the windows didn't all open. I think that if the windows had screens it could allow for more of a breeze to go through the place, as it did get pretty hot. Overall quiet little getaway in the small sleepy town of Cahuita!
We stayed in this lovely house (Casa Stardust) with our 5 & 7 year old kids and we all had a great time. The house and especially the kitchen are very complete. The kids loved the lush jungle garden, that makes you feel as if you are in the middle of the jungle. They spent hours looking for the green and black frogs in the garden. The beach is a few minutes away and we had it almost to ourselves. A small river ends in the sea, so the kids loved building a dam in it together with some of the local kids. A small supermarket is nearby next to the Reggae bar that sells the best bread in town (made by an Italian lady). Cahuita is about 20 minutes away walking with the kids. We missed the hammock that was in the property photo though. Nando, the property manager, was very kind to take us to the bus station on our last day, when Cahuita was in the middle of a very heavy rain storm.
This house is surrounded by large trees and gets very little sunlight so make it difficult to get things dry in the humidity.
The house itself is fine and clean although all the dark brown trim make it feel quite dark inside. The two patios are covered and comfortable.
The website claims the is a bbq grill there but it is a small concrete block structure covered in moss and creepers so don't expect to be able to use it.
