Excellent! Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, John and Eric are the most thoughtful, kind, helpful and knowledgable hosts; and the dome is perfect! I stayed there for a week with my 14-year old daughter and we couldn't have asked for a better home base to explore the area.

Being "home" at the dome was relaxing and always interesting...everything from sitting on the observation deck for morning coffee or evening wine and feeling like we were part of the jungle; to hearing the sounds of the jungle at night; to ending a hot day in the plunge pool; to picking john and eric's knowledgable and generous brains. We loved our stay so much that we are heading back to look at property of our own.

Puerto Viejo is amazing (from animals to culture to food to adventure) and the dome was the best.

Dont miss this experience!!!!

Thank you John and Eric!!!!!! You guys have set the bar HIGH!!!

Once you go dome, you'll never want to go home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this stunning and comfortable architectural beauty. John and Eric were great hosts and there's lots to do in the area with beaches, hiking, tours and good restaurants. If a hobbit lived in the jungle this is the home he would build (fortunately this one is human sized).

Beautiful house in a peaceful jungle setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 5-night stay at Casa Corazon del Mar! It is a truly unique dwelling located in a peaceful jungle setting within a quiet neighborhood. This home is very comfortable and inviting, with beautiful interior features and garden landscaping. We enjoyed the pool, including just sitting by it, reading, and watching the life of the jungle around us. We also spent a lot of time on the wildlife viewing platform. We loved the continual sounds of the birds and insects. We saw plenty of local wildlife including many birds, sloths, and an emerald basilisk.

Eric and John are excellent hosts, and were very helpful with anything we needed. We look forward to revisiting this wonderful vacation house again! Many thanks to Eric & John for helping make our vacation very special!

Cute and unique near-jungle experience

  • 5 of 5

A perfect sized place for two with a cozy bedroom expanding to the outside and an upper deck, inside living room, or pool to relax in. The bathroom with rainfall showerhead is spacious. Plus, the unique bulbous, flowing shape is neat.

John and Eric were greatly appreciated with their attentiveness and hospitality as onsite hosts, personally hailing cabs (and rehailing them when you leave your phone in one of them--which was returned successfully) :)

Great location nearby to Puerto Viejo and Playa Negra. If you rent a bike (shout out to Monkey Bike Rentals), then pretty much any beach location or nearby town is accessible.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home is close to the beach and town but still private. The locals (Tico) are extremely nice here . You have a nice long driveway to home and you are secluded (no road noise at all). The house is unique with multiple wildlife and unique attractions. Just an amazing property and John was a fabulous host. He gave us a bottle of wine and showed us sloths in the tree at the house. Gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to see. In addition to here, we spent two weeks in Costa Rica (La Fortuna, Flamingo Beach, Jaco, San Jose)and this was by far the best place we stayed! I can't rave enough about this home. Well worth the stay, you can't go wrong. My only recommendation is to add a fan in the kitchen/seating area to help when it's hot (not a deal breaker since there was the pool).

If you ever sell, contact us !! We will be back again to stay!

Not your usual...

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 60th birthday here. I was looking for something off the beaten path and this filled the bill. The first two days were hot! but sleeping was comfortable with a fan. Eric went out of his way to be helpful and available while maintaining our privacy. The town of Puerto Viejo is a comfortable and safe walk.
