A charming little jewel in the heart of Tortuguero. Located right by the National Park & just 250m from the famous turtle-nesting beach. We have 5 rooms with fan, private bathroom, hot water & housekeeping. All rooms open onto an outside porch with chairs and hammocks to relax in our private tropical garden. We also have 3 rooms in a private apartment with fans, shared bathroom, hot water, housekeeping & private balcony with hammock and seating. Great for friends, couples and solo adventurers.

The space

Double room in our rustic Caribbean paradise complete with private balcony and hammock. The communal area downstairs has more hammocks & comfy seating, board games and books to enjoy as well as free coffee and filtered ice-cold water. Wifi throughout the property. Stay still for long enough and you’ll notice that being this close to the national park draws a few visitors to our garden. Butterflies and hummingbirds feed on the heliconia and rabo de zorro plants, macaws, parrots, tanagers and kiskadees flit overhead and through the trees, river crabs, frogs & toads come out in the rain. Completing our family are the two cats Mietze and Tilicho and the tiny kitten Macarela.

Guest access

For your comfort we have a communal area with traditional hammocks, giving guests a typically cool and Caribbean environment to relax in. There are board games, books and comfy seating to chill and spot birds in our lush garden. Complimentary coffee and filtered water available in the communal area from 08.00 to 18.00 (often earlier as we like to rise with the sun!) Free luggage storage and wifi for all guests. Information on local activities available here. Although there is no shared kitchen available we can offer plates/cutlery and use of the fridge/freezer if needed. This room also has access to a private balcony with an extra hammock to chill in.

Quelqu'un est venu nous cherché à notre arrivé à tortuguero pour nous mener à la cabina. Accueil chaleureux tout est parfait pour ce détendre et profiter des environs. Les hôtes sont très aimables et serviables et on réservé pour nous deux excursions. Ils veillent au bon déroulement tout en restant discrets ! Je recommande vivement

Super jolie auberge à l'ambiance détendue ! Tomas et Hollie sont très aimables et rapides à répondre aux questions en tout genre. Ils forment une équipe très souriante et amicale ! Les chambres sont simples et propres, il manquerait toute fois quelque chose pour poser ses affaires (chaise, crochets, étagères par exemple). Merci, on recommande ! :-)

Die Unterkunft ist wirklich super! Sehr schön und gemütlich gestaltet. Man fühlt sich sehr wohl besonders auch wegen der Gastgeber, die wahnsinnig nett und hilfsbereit sind und uns sogar zwei Mahlzeiten gekocht haben (wir haben gute Pasta so vermisst). Danke für den schönen Aufenthalt!
