Relaxing atmosphere,surrounded by a variety of tropical plants and birds. A clean, comfortable cottage. Any concerns were immediately addressed by the property manager who was always available to help or advise.Friendly neighbours. We enjoyed seventy days in this ideal setting.

We enjoyed our 8 day stay at this sweet house. Alicia was always available for questions before our trip and Susana was helpful in showing us the house when we arrived. Banana Azul is walking distance from the house and we had many delicious meals and cocktails at the resort. It was great having a home base in Playa Negra while we explored the many towns on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. We even did a day trip to Bocas Del Toro, Panama using Caribe Shuttle, which we highly recommend.

Thank you so much for letting my husband and I stay in your beautiful Casa Vida Loca! Our favorite place to hang out was the couch on the porch. We would sit there every morning with a coffee and every night with a glass of wine listening and observing all the different birds and butterflies. I went multiple times around the yard looking at the different trees, plants and fruits. It's was like our personal little jungle! We rented bike so it made it easy to go to town everyday. I would absolutely recommend this house! Thank you again... We absolutely loved it! Russel and Julie from British Columbia, Canada

If you love the sound of birds waking you in the AM, which we do, Casa Vida Loca is the place for you! We saw a pair of clay-colored thrushes working on a nest in a corner of the patio & many more colorful birds came by as well. The garden surrounding the house is colorful and lush...loved the tall orchids at the entry to the house. Very peaceful place to relax with all amenities we needed and walking distance to lovely Playa Negra. Some days waves were inviting, others a bit intimidating. Susana, the local host, was wonderful. She guided us and answered questions without being intrusive. We loved having a "home" away from the hub-bub of town—though also appreciated having it right near by. Sad to leave after getting so comfortable and look forward to coming again. Thanks for sharing your home—it was Pura Vida!

wunderbare lage und anlage. klein, aber mit allem, was man braucht. sehr ruhig, und privat. „nur“ vogelkonzert frühmorgens mit (fast) täglichen tukanbesuchen. besonders bei langem aufenthalt (wir waren einen monat da) ist die aussenküche (grill) besonders angenehm um such mal selber zu kochen. wir werden das häusele bei einem nächsten aufenthalt wieder buchen.

The casita was homey, quiet and safe. We could hear the ocean, birds, frogs, and other critters. We cooked, rested, and slept well. It was like having our very own private jungle. Walking to the beach was a breeze. Most of all I thought Costa Ricans are friendly.

It was a great location for us! Close to the beach and Banana Azul where you can get a cappuccino in the mornings. The beach is secluded and goes forever. We walked into Puerto Viejo via the beach in about 15 minutes. The sounds of the frogs and birds was lovely to drift off to sleep and to wake up to.

We really enjoyed our time in Puerto Viejo and Alicias home is so lovely; perfect for my family (me, husband and kids 4 & 6 years old). Clean, comfortable, and just as described. Susana was there at arrival to show us around and provided tips about the beaches, restaurants, activities for the kids etc. She’s a gem! Nice balance of time exploring Puerto Viejo and relaxing at the house. We will return!

Schöner Garten. Naturstraße zum Haus. In der Nähe vieler Surferstrände. Nationalpark Cahuita gut zu erreichen mit tollem Strand. Chocorart- Schokoladentour und Jaguar-rescue-Center hat uns sehr gut gefallen.
