Located in the outskirts of Barbacoas, just a few minutes outside Santiago de Puriscal, this cozy bungalow is just perfect for a couple or a solo traveler. Nice and secure, wih privacy and great Central Valley views, high speed internet, (no buffering while watching Netflix or other streaming services), and a great covered patio my week here was great. Early morning coffee on the patio while the sun lights up the mountains was one of my favorite things....talk about peaceful. The Central Valley lights at night are great...the view must be (I'm guessing here) 25 miles or more.
Your hosts, Ed and Nancy live right next door, and are wonderful people who fully respect your privacy but are available and happy to provide information about the area, day trips and recommendations for local restaurants, and stores where you can find whatever you are looking for. They have lived in the area for 8 years after relocating from south Texas and are very knowledgeable. You won't find better people anywhere.
Beautiful and comfortable, convenient, and restful in every way, with flowers and hummingbirds to make your visit more special! A small house complete with kitchenette so that you can enjoy meals or snacks on your patio or at your dining room table, while you view the surrounding vista! Complete with everything you need to enjoy every minute of your visit! The owners, Ed and Nancy Sheldon, are warm, welcoming, and delighted to assist you with information about all the interesting and enjoyable spots to visit in Costa Rica. Nearby Puriscal has everything that you desire in fast food or grocery. The Jungle Bungalow is a Winner any way that you look at it!! I always stay there and it is my spot in Costa Rica!!
We enjoyed our stay at The Jungle Bungalow so much we didn't want to leave!! The bungalow itself was perfect! The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The bed was so comfortable and everything was so neat and clean. I'm a neat freak, so this was important to me. Our hosts, Ed and Nancy, couldn't have been more helpful. They've pretty much seen and done it all in Costa Rica, so they could answer all of our questions and helped us design an "Adventure Plan" for the week. We had so many wonderful experiences that week! Be sure to set aside some time to just relax, though.....because the view is absolutely breathtaking!
I can’t say enough about this 5* casita.
There was nothing Ed and Nancy haven’t thought of.
It was fabulous. From the most comfortable bed, towels, linens, cookware and views to die for.
We would wake and have our breakfast outside.. and were in awe..
They were full of information and wonderful hosts.
We will return. Wish our stay was longer.
They have a nest with two baby hummingbirds. Nancy was so kind to send me pics on there progress.
Truly wonderful people.
