Bohemian rustic luxury just a 5 minute walk to Punta Uva beach, in a 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen in our Caribbean House with handmade furniture from local tropical hardwoods, top-of-the-line fixtures and amenities, and treasures from our travels. A peaceful oasis outside of Puerto Viejo.

The space

The apartment has 1 King and 1 queen bedroom, both screened in and furnished with Costa Rican made orthopedic foam mattresses, mosquito nets and fans; a shared large bathroom and shower area with Solar Hot water, double sinks, and 2 separate toilet rooms; a full open kitchen with everything you'll need to cook any meals during your stay; and a beautiful outdoor living space with hammocks to chill, and a space to work with your laptop if need be.

Guest access

The house also has an outdoor shower to rinse off after your beach day. We have 2 longboard surfboards (9'2" and 8'6") and 2 bicycles available to rent.

Interaction with guests

We are a couple who split our time between New York City and Punta Uva. When we're here, we live in the upstairs apartment with our daughter, and are available to offer local advice and help organize tours, rentals, and activities in the area. When we are not here, our local caretaker will be available and will provide the same services.

Other things to note

We care about our environment and aim to be a chemical free house, for the benefit of the area, the wildlife, and ourselves. We only use natural cleaning products, soaps, sunscreens and other toiletries. We ask that you do the same. Natural products are now available in health and grocery stores and pharmacies almost everywhere. If you can't get them where you're from, they are readily available here.

Please don't leave out any open food or food scraps or dirty dishes.

Please separate the organic garbage and put it in the bin in the freezer.

If it rains hard and is windy, please close the curtains on the front deck so it stays dry.

Always lock all the windows and doors and put the rolling kitchen island away when you go out. Please put the kitchen away at night when you go to sleep as well.

Amazing place. Near to the best beach of all Punta Uva. A perfect location, an eco friendly place to stay and live a great experience in the jungle.

Loved it. Great location. Great people. Located in Punta Uva, the house is nestled away from the party scenes of Puerto Viejo (but not too far). Gentle biking distance from good food. Beaches were amazing and we often felt great solitude. A great house with great house rules. I walked away inspired to care for my environment a little bit more.

Wow, what to say, it is exactly as described and photographed. So close to so much, Jaguar Rescue Centre a short 15 minute bike ride away, Punta Uva Beach, under three minutes away, a very well stocked and convenient store just a minute or two walk, Manzanillo Beach, a trip worth taking, maybe 25-30 minute bike ride(only two hills). Areciffe beach, my favourite local spot, about 4 minute bike ride. Great big porch to hang out on, cool and very efficiently equipped kitchen that just tucks away, great towels and comfy linens all make this a place worthy of returning too! The outdoor shower is great after a day on the beach, and the indoor shower has HOT water. Communication with Jessica was prompt and thorough, with plenty of suggestions and links offered. This property is a real gem.

The home is built with all natural woods, no preservatives or anything with chemicals are used around or in the home. If you are a naturalist this home is for you. The interior is nicely finished. There is an outdoor kitchen which was adequately equipped if you would like to cook while staying there. It has a large outdoor deck as well. The down sides for us were; no table and chairs to eat at. Benches with cushions which over look the yard are provided, but it is difficult to be able to enjoy the conversation with others because you are sitting next to them on a bench not facing each other. We would have also much appreciated at least 2 chairs inside to be able to sit and read or do computer work. The only furniture is the bed so if you are wanting to avoid the bugs at night you must do so on the bed. We wanted to use the bicycles which are adventurous but could not get in touch with our host until later in the day and were then informed. They were not in working order. Neighbors who were extremely nice and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed conversing with them during our 2 day stay at Casa Verano. We are seniors so probably not be staying here again, but it had great reviews.

Very glad you enjoyed your stay, and sorry we weren't there to meet you. So sorry about the bikes. I wasn't informed until that day that the bikes were broken. We are at the house much of the year and always keep the bikes in working order.

Terrific house, liked the way they designed it a lot. The only thing we disliked was the rooster next door. Better to move the animal!

We spent a couple of days at this off-the -beaten-track place of costa rica. We had a great time: beaches and nature incredibly beautiful, very nice house, clean and comfortable, with outdoor cooking.. Jessica and Mike are great, they live upstairs with their baby Maya, who seems to be the sweetest baby ever. if you go, hire a guide and take the walk to punta Mona. road a bit difficult to find on your own, but it goes straight through rainforest and passes pridtine beaches. Warmly recommended place and area to stay.
