“Beautiful house, beautiful people”
Reviewed 13 January 2018 for a stay in July 2017

There is not enough room to truly say how wonderful our stay at El Jardin was. Although the house itself was beautiful both inside and out, complete with both charm and amenities, the absolute best aspects of being here were those who helped to host us, Giorgio and Antonella. We stayed in Costa Rica for over a week, traveling from Monteverde all the way down to Puerto Viejo and only really planned the first half of the trip thoroughly. The second half was supposed to be relaxing and a bit more free and Giorgio and Antonella helped us do exactly that. As soon as we arrived they greeted us warmly and showed us to the house, letting us know the full scope of everything it had to offer. Once we had gone over the basics, they gave us a full slate of possibilities nearby from food, activities, the best beach spots, safety advice, etc and answered just about every question we threw at them. Although our schedules were a bit sporadic, they were always around to answer questions and give advice and quite frankly, directed us towards some incredible food and cool spots we may not have found on our own. While this made the final three days of our trip that much easier and more enjoyable overall, the best part was feeling like we had extended family/friends looking after us, which is one of the most comforting things you can ask for thousands of miles from home. We normally like to keep our options fresh when we travel but I can easily say we enjoyed our time so much here, we plan to go back to see PV, El Jardin, and of course, Giorgio and Antonella. Overall, the house was extremely well-kept, in a perfect location, there was a perfect amount of space and amenities (washer on vacation is a huge plus!), we had a sweet cat guest sleep on our porch (we named him Miel, say hi if you see him), and two perfectly charming people to help with anything we needed. What more can you ask for?

The house was everything we wanted. The location was convenient to the beach and a few restaurants. The town of Puerto Viejo was an easy 30 minute walk. The distance from the town of the house made the location quiet in the evenings. Exactly what we were looking for. I would read book next year.

“Fantastic beautifull house close to the sea.”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We, a family of three, stayed in house Naranja: a beautifull house designed bij Alfredo himself, in the big, wonderfull and peacefull garden in a peacfull and quiet neighboroud, and it takes just a minute or 2 to walk to the beach. Beautifull plants, a sloth in the tree right above us, frogs and lots of other animals can be seen or heard near the house.The house is clean, comfortable and cosey and has yet lots of space as well inside the house, as on the big balcony around the house. We had wonderfull moments just sitting there. We enjoyede our stay very much and prolongued it till 8 days. Puerto Viejo is closeby and a lovely small town to have dinner or take a walk. Alfredo is a very kind and gentle host who gives you a warm welcome and who makes you feel at home. We strongly recommend this house and if we ever return to Costa Rica we will absolutely be back, we loved the place. Monique, Hans & Puck, the Netherlands.

“pura vida chez Alfredo”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Great, few houses in the forest, very close to the town.

Houses are well clean and silent, air condition is not necessary, fan are more than enough.

Alfredo and his wife will explain you what to do and where to eat in the area, enjoy even their friendship, they are very polite people.
Monkeys are all over.
