Welcome to casa corazon del mar (house of the sea heart). Just three minutes from the beach. It is a very unique, adobe-style dome home situated in a lush colourful garden within the jungle. The home features a fully furnished kitchen and bedroom. Casa corazon del mar also boasts a unique river stone, spa style washroom with a rain shower head, hand shower and slate shower bench. Queen size bed. Outdoor space includes plunge pool and nature observation platform with comfortable adirondack chairs and hammock.
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).
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!
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.
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!
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.
Beautiful, unique property, just a short drive, bike or walk from the beaches of Puerto Viejo. Even better than the pictures- our only regret was that we could not stay more nights. Besides being interesting and beautiful ascetically, the Dome Home has all the amenities we needed, including a full kitchen, and a complimentary bottle of wine. John lives on property and couldn't have been more helpful- offering dinner/drink recommendations, as well as insight into the plants around the dome. Covered area on the top of the dome was the perfect place to drink your morning coffee and spot plenty of wildlife. Highly, highly recommend this very unique property, which was so fun, it was hard to leave to explore the area!
