Nancy was very helpful connecting us with local activities and information. We enjoyed beach combing, picking driftwood and shells. Everytime we went to the National Park we saw different wildlife. Had a great winter getaway! Thank you Nancy.
My husband and I spent a week at this lovely property this October. The pictures of the home and description are very accurate, and the home was clean. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from the wrap around lanai, the lovely gardens, and falling asleep to the sound of waves every night. We occasionally heard howler monkeys in the distance, and twice saw a sloth in the trees next door. We pretty much spent all of our time lounging on the comfortable lanai when we were home. We felt very safe here, it is on a quiet residential street, but close enough to walk everywhere. The property is behind a high fence and gate, security doors and windows. The windows also have screens. It does get warm, but there are ocean breezes and the ceiling fans and extra fans were appreciated. The home had everything we needed, plenty towels and beach towels were provided which was appreciated. There is a coffee maker, pots and pans, we had everything we needed to make some meals while we were there. There is even a surge protector for charging your devices. Nancy lives right next door so is close for any questions and the eggs, coffee and filtered water were appreciated. The shore at the home is beautiful, and rocky. A short walk up the road are sandy beaches.
We really enjoyed Cahuita and the quiet laid back atmosphere. The people are very friendly. There are a few small markets for groceries, where you can get all of the basics you need. Pali market in Hone Creek has a bit more available. On Sunday is a farmers market. There is one ATM. There are also several restaurants and bars. Most accepted US dollars as well as Colones, some accept credit cards, but there are added taxes and paying cash will save you money. Our favorite restaurant was Sobre Los Olas right down the street from the property, ocean front with outdoor dining. They had a sloth with a baby outside in the tree. We also loved Guy's French Bakery and would stop by for food in the morning to take with us for lunch, very affordable. We also enjoyed Planique Luisa and Pizzeria Cahuita. Cahuita National Park is in walking distance and is a must see! Nice level trail, wildlife and a beautiful white sand beach. You can walk everywhere in town and there is a bus station so you can manage without a car. Out of Cahuita our favorite beach was Punta Uva, I also recommend a trip to the Gandoca-Manzanillo Refuge and the Jaguar Sanctuary.
I highly recommend a stay at Nancy's home!
My husband and I spent 6 nights at this property at the beginning of our 16-day honeymoon to Costa Rica. The property is down an unpaved and quiet residential street, but is only a few blocks from the town of Cahuita.
Pros: The photographs do not do this property justice. The view from the second-story, wrap-around balcony of the garden toward the Caribbean is fantastic. The property itself is open air (with screens and security frames around the windows) with shutters if you want additional privacy (we never closed ours); however, it is a very secure building and the property (shared with the owner's home) is behind a high gate. The wrap-around second floor balcony with hammock and plenty of seating is a fantastic way to lounge with a book in the hot afternoons. The house was well-appointed with towels and beach towels, coffee maker, pots&pans, etc. Nancy, the owner, even gave us a few staples so we could have our first breakfast the next morning. Everything was clean. Nancy, the owner, was very nice and even suggested we venture out to find a waterfall outside of town- we did, and had a great time swimming and enjoying the views.
Cons: No real cons. There is no air conditioning, so we got pretty hot sometimes. But, there is a big ceiling fan in the upstairs bedroom and usually a pretty good cross-breeze off of the water. We also were awoken by howler monkeys or birds a lot of mornings, but we had ear plus and really, that was all part of the Caribbean experience!
I think this place is a real hidden gem, and you will be happy to choose this location for a relaxing vacation. While here, we enjoyed lots of long walks, hikes in the adjacent National Park (walking distance), snorkeling, a tour at Tree of Life animal sanctuary, and eating as much ceviche as we could! We also went to the Sloth Sanctuary on the day we left.
The house is very big, and the upstairs area is nice, with a great view of the ocean. The house and the surrounding area felt safe. The owner of the house lives a couple feet over in another house, which makes communication immediate. The downstairs of the house isn't as pleasant as the upstairs, which led to everybody preferring to sleep in the upstairs area, something hard to accommodate. Also, the bathrooms are in need of small repairs.
We loved the relaxed feeling of Nancy's wonderful property. A great location, in a picturesque village, with a French bakery, Reggae music, Sunday market, and easy drives to amazing beaches. Our absolute favorite experience of our trip.
