Other things to note

Important, the safety of the house : the safer part of the house, is the bottom, please close well all windows and doors , the door that goes upstairs, is important when you leave the house, to cross one of the bars on the middle of the door, and the windows by the table must have a screw to avoid any accident and robbery.
Is important to close the bottom part very well and leave precious belongings and pc downstairs.
Upstairs you can leave it open if you wish , but as we leave in a 3rd world country is always better to prevent and lock passports , pcs and cells , money on the little safe box by the bed or the one under the bathroom sink.

Same going to the beach do not leave your items unattendant and do not carry valuable thing with you on your visit to the Refuegee. Always better prevention !

Communication with Claudia was pleasant, and responsive. Yari, Claudia’s assistant was sweet, and helpful. The location of the house is walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and supermarkets. The house itself is unique, and great to have experienced, also very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, mosquito net, lots of lamps and light fixtures, several fans. It was great to sleep with the doors, and windows open upstairs; the mosquito net made it possible to do so, as although we enjoy having an open concept to nature, we prefer not to have bugs crawling on us while we sleep. Parking is conveniently located on-site in front of the house. Wifi works well. We enjoyed all the flora, and fauna. We couldn’t have chosen a better place. It is a surprise to us that this place was not booked up, as everything is great about it.

Great location for a house rental. It was very private and close to all the amenities in town and the beach. My children enjoyed the yard and we saw many animals during the day and night. A troop of howler monkeys resided in the yard twice. The house was clean and Claudia was very helpful with any questions we had. There were many sitting areas and the upstairs deck was a favorite location for our family to have our morning coffee.

Claudia's place is a perfect house to stay at near Puerto Viejo. We felt safe and cozy. I recommend renting a car for getting from town to town. The bed was large and the mosquito net in great shape. The TV with Netflix was another nice touch. You might not need it but I think it's better and safer to stay in at night rather than be walking around town. The place had more amenities than any other Airbnb we stayed at. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks Claudia.

If you are looking for a private place to stay for relaxation - this is it! The photos do not really show how welcoming this home is. I had expected the home to be small but being a family of five, it was very comfortable and spacious. Communication with Claudia was superb via email with very quick response even when we were there. Other benefits included:- wifi was very fast; felt very safe; close to some wonderful beaches, being so close to the sounds of nature was amazing. Loved having the opportunity to stay at this home for two nights.

I highly recommend this place. Almost completely surrounded by rainforest, it is secluded, but only a few minutes walk from the center of town, the beach, and the nature preserve. The house includes everything you might need: mosquito nets, hammocks, complete kitchen, wifi, TV with Netflix (although we didn't use), and even a trampoline for the kids. There's a mini-mart just around the corner. Claudia (and Yari) were extremely helpful and responsive. We had a great time here.
