The Property

Welcome to your jungle retreat. This secret spot, located in a large hill with an open ocean view would make you feel the ocean over your feet.

The large pool will welcome you with an amazing garden view that will guide your eyes to the Caribbean in the background. The deck by the pool is the perfect spot to sunbathe or just spend the night looking at the stars.

The downstairs kitchen and living room can be totally open to the pool deck to make it feel like the jungle goes right into the house. A nice social area with a pool table perfect to enjoy with friends and family.

There are two rooms in the downstairs area with a shared bathroom and two more rooms on the second floor with a private bathroom in each.

On this second floor there is another massive deck with lounge chairs to enjoy the view of the jungle and the sea from another perspective. Higher up is a great spot to enjoy bird watching and trying your best trying to find sloths, iguanas and monkeys hidden in the trees.

Are you ready to enjoy an authentic jungle experience?

About the Neighborhood

The house is very well located in the neighborhood of Playa Chiquita, a quiet neighborhood and very family friendly. Besides beautiful beaches are Playa Chiquita (700mts) and Punta Uva (1,5 km). Playa Chiquita is located about 5km from the town of Puerto Viejo. In our neighborhood there are restaurants, bars and mini-markets, and all distances can be done on foot. In Puerto Viejo, you can find ATM, pharmacies, bars, discos, etc.

In the last 20 meters before the house, there is a very steep climb. If you go to rent a car, we recommend a 4x4.
