I stayed for a week in the Casa Lina 2-bedroom cottage. It is such a beautiful place in a perfect location! I wish I could have stayed much longer. The cottage is even better than the photos. The large patio is the perfect place to start the day, having a coffee while watching toucans, hummingbirds, and sloths. It is also a great place to end your day, having a glass of wine while listening to a symphony of crickets and locusts. The kitchen is well-equipped and has full-size appliances. The cottage is located down a long gravel road, then a short drive to Puerto Viejo town. I rented a scooter for the week, which worked out to be the perfect choice for me. Most locals in the area ride bicycles, but with the long gravel road, it would take a long time to get into town on bike. A car was not practical for me, since I did not want to deal with parking. Kinga was out of town during my stay, but she instantly responded to my messages. She gave me a very detailed description of all I needed to know about the area and suggested places to visit. Her friend, Elizabeth, was just down the road and available for anything that I needed help with. What I really loved about Casa Lina was the resident kitty, Sombra. He greeted me when I first arrived, as well as every time I came back. We quickly became best friends. He is such a lover! When you visit Casa Lina, be sure to give Sombra lots of snuggles from me. I miss him very much! Casa Lina was the highlight of my 3 weeks in Costa Rica. I am looking forward to returning again very soon. =^.~.^=

The tree house/bungalow makes you feel like you're right in the jungle. You wake up in the morning to birds singing and howler monkeys deep voices echoing through the air. Hummingbirds join flowers right next to the porch. We wanted something different and we got it. This vacation was for my son's 16th birthday and we had a great time! Due to location, mosquitos and ants are everywhere you go and they have a nasty bite. Make sure you bring bug spray & get one of those mosquito plug ins to minimize their attack, Again, with all the humidity, there's a little bit of a musty smell but it's part of the charm and it's not all that noticeable. We loved our little bungalow in the forest. It's not far from town and you can rent bicycles on the same road from a local. Plus, there's a kitty on the property who is precious and will make you feel purr-fectly at home.

What a beautiful place! Let me tell you, when we were looking to have both the convenience of being close to Puerto Viejo but also have the rainforest experience of the Caribbean coast in Costa Rica, we didn't think it was going to be as perfect as this. This house is located next to some excellent restaurants (within 1 km) but it also has an excellent kitchen to cook in, and the bathroom was very clean and the shower was large. Our host was very patient and gracious when we had to contact her regarding some questions about the area. We are definitely coming back soon. It's amazing.

Great place to feel the Caribbean, not only for the great location between beaches and Puesto Viejo downtown but also to experience the quietness of the forest at the deck and hammock, the place is clean and well equipped, looking forward to go back soon!

Only wish we'd stayed longer. Had a great stay. Woke up to the sound of howler monkeys and one amazing thunderstorm

Beautiful place, the garden is impressive we got to see wild animals and a lot of different birds. The house is not in the main highway but I think this is an extra since you can enjoy the calm and sounds of nature. They have a super friendly cat that is just lovely!!!

We are a European couple fell in love with this country ( especially in the Caribbean) more than 10 years ago. Life is here like in a hidden paradise, really close to the nature. No words can tell you how it feels like, you should try it! We wanted to share this unique experience also with others so we decided to settle down here in Cocles and built 2 apartments for rent. We gave the name after our 4 year old daughter: Lina. You can feel the nature really close to you, its an incredible feeling, but dont be afraid of the animals, normally they are afraid of human beings so they dont come close to you, you have to be patient and silent to be able to watch them . even the spiders or other insects :)
we have a sloth living with us on the tree next to our house, dozens of humming birds around, an iguana couple and a friendly agouti are visiting us frequently, not to mention all the birds flying around the house
We raise organic banana, pineapple and coconut in the garden, if you arrive in the right period we invite you taste them...
