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 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.
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 wear shoes in the house.
Please rinse the sand from your feet in the outdoor shower when you come back from the beach.
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.
Please only smoke cigarettes outside the house or on the edge of the deck. No smoking inside.
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.
Please be conscious of water use. We use filtered rainwater and it's a limited resource. Don't run the water while you brush your teeth or do dishes, or take extra long showers.
There is safe parking on the private road in front of the house (this is where we park). Please do not try to bring your car in the front gate.
