“Cozy, clean, well equipped beach house in a beautiful secluded location”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Stayed here two nights after having a reservation mishap at local hotel Banana Azul (in their defense, it was them who arranged for us to stay at Casa Galim, and covered the cost differential in the stay).

The place is a little out of the way (about 1 km on a rough road parallel to the beach) but it is absolutely beautiful. It's private, super clean and well equipped with a refrigerator, gas stove and full bathroom with a showerhead heater.

Yosi and Ester are very welcoming and were attentive to our needs. I will definitely be staying here again.

“A true taste of heaven”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What an amazing place!
A beautifull wooden, hand made, two story house.
Far from all the craze of the crowd, and 10 paces from the sea! =]

The perfect house for any family or group who want to come to this amazing location and just enjoy a relaxing while.

“'Far from the Madding Crowd'”
Reviewed 25 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Yosi & Esther are a lovely couple. They both made our stay at Casa Galim a wonderful experience. They helped us plan our stay and also helped plan and book many visits to local sites, even taking time to visit with us to show us around the local area. They both were well informed of the local flora and fauna and would always keep us informed if a new animal came into the neighbourhood i.e. the Sloth's and birds. Which there were lots.
The accommodation was simple and comfortable, clean and welcoming. The location is right on the coast, only feet from the lovely quiet beach surrounded by palm trees and jungle. Far enough from the town to be quiet but close enough to visit the many restaurants and bars. The sea breeze makes the location refreshing. There is plenty of activities to do and Yosi and Ester are only too willing to help you book tours and visits. We all loved the location because it was not commercialised and you felt you could relax so easily. A perfect location to lay back and enjoy and to relax.

“loved it!:)”
Reviewed 20 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Our stay in Casa Galim was great. Our hosts are wonderful people - warm and helpful - we felt very welcomed:) The house is beautiful and very well equipped and the patio facing the sea is marvelous. We were almost on the beach:) On the patio super comfortable hammocks to relax. We would definitely like to come back...
There is so much to see in this area and the beach is beautiful.
Puerto Viejo has lots of restaurants, bars and supermarkets to buy fresh local food.

CASA GALIM, cerca PUERTO VIEJO, Talamanca, at the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica

Located 3km from the center of Puerto Viejo (about 40 min walk) - not too far to go and hang around in the town, while still far enough to be peaceful, private and safe... an amazing vacation house, with a nice wide balcony to a great ocean view right on the beach... surrounded by coconut, fruit and tropical trees, just 50 meters from the Atlantic ocean, with just a garden in between you and the caribbean sandy beach.

I stayed at "Casa Galim" twice and I can't wait for next time! at the last time I went there with my grandmother and it was awsome! She got at least 10 years younger, forgot her problems, worries and health issues and had a funny smile spread on her face all the time!

In the back yard there is a creek with wild iguanas and many types of lizards, birds, butterflies, and monkeys (Perezoso), and when you look around you realize that right after the creek the jungle begins...

Because of constant fresh breeze from the trees surrounding the place and from the ocean, it is so fresh that I found myself chilling in the hammock and have those deep and peaceful naps!
I happened to arrive in the wavy season, so there was plenty of time to practice my board surfing.

The sunrise is on the ocean so I had so much fun waking up early and walk along the beach and watch the sunrise, swim, go to town for groceries and fruits (you can walk both on the beach under the sun, or in the shade, or by bicycle or car), and enjoy all the options and attractions.

Excellent service! A lovely couple gives excellent service and atmosphere and great advices about beautiful places to see, butterfly/jaguar/tucan/monkey farms, chocolate tours, indian villages, national parks, canoopy, where to go out, restaurants, bicycle rentals, surfing equipment, and other useful information about the many things you could do in the area.

good luck casa galim, see you next time
