The town center with its laid back vibe, offers a selection of restaurants, bars and stores and is only a fifteen minutes stroll away or 5 minutes on one of the provided bicycles. The stunning National Park, Cahuita's jewel, is just beyond the center and is a wildlife spotter's dream! The white beaches and clear waters are just as inviting as the jungle footpaths.

‘La Casa del Mango’s on site manager will ensure that your every need is met, so come and unwind in this home away from home.

I will definitely go back and definitely stay here again. Miss you already Sarah and Nando, and miss Costa Rica! If you guys are ever in Denver email me! Again sorry it took so long to write this.

Absolute Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
This house looks amazing in photos, but in person it's absolute paradise! The yard and pool area is perfectly maintained and gorgeous. The house is roomy and comfortable. Sara and Nando were absolutely gracious hosts, and every question or request was immediately answered or catered to. My six friends and I didn't want to leave. We spent the week lounging by the gorgeous and clean pool, making food in the kitchen, playing cards and drinking way too many Imperials on the patio, or watching the wildlife and the ocean from the rooftop deck.
The house is much closer to the beach than expected, and the view is incredible. From the rooftop we could watch iguanas in the trees, birds (so many birds), and even saw a couple sloths. The house has wifi which is a god send for those of us who are locked to our modern conveniences. There are four very spacious bedrooms, each with a lock and set of keys.
The town of Cahuita is a close walk. Nearby a delicious french bakery up on the main route (highly recommended for breakfast). Sobre Las Olas is the closest restaurant, and is right on the beach, and the food is absolutely amazing! But you must try the pina coladas!
I would absolutely return to Cahuita and to Casa Del Mango in a heartbeat.
Affordable, comfortable, and breathtaking.
Booking this house was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Wonderful treehouse at the beach

  • 5 of 5
Of the number of vacation homes we've rented, this is the one we would most like to get back to. The quirky architecture makes it something like living in a tree fort, only with jewel-colored tropical flowers all around. The rooms and especially the grounds are much more brightly colored and varied than they look in the pictures. The pool was clean and blue, as the photos show, and the gardens are cleverly laid out for seclusion and variety. It's a quiet little world of its own, behind a fence with a locked gate, on a small unpaved road with other vacation homes. One word about the height of the building: if you bring children, be aware that the top two floors are open decks. They offer a great 360° view of rooftops, jungle and ocean, and there are solid railings, of course, but it's high. That being said, for us the decks were one of the major draws of the place. On the next two floors down are the bedrooms, two on each floor, and the ground level has the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, a powder room, and a wonderful lanai with a comfortable glider and a table and chairs.

We rented as a family of four grown-ups, with the luxury of a bedroom and private bath for each of us. Our stay was for only three nights, and we wished we had made it for twice that. Nando and Manuel were very nice and helpful and could always be found when we needed them, but were never intrusive. We liked the town of Cahuita very much, with its laissez-faire Caribbean atmosphere and contented-looking dogs wandering around. There isn't much shopping, but there always seemed to be a low-key party scene in the evening. And in the daytime there are plenty of nature-oriented things to do in the area, as other people have noted.

All in all, for us this was one of the best stays ever, anywhere.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough good things about our recent stay at La Casa Del Mango. We stayed from a Saturday-Saturday with myself, my husband, sister, mom and step dad. The house was not only beautiful and spacious- we all had our own space- but everyone who worked on the property were so friendly and helpful. Manual greeted us and went to the store to get us coffee so we'd have some for our first morning! Sarah and Nando are wonderful hosts who ensure that you are comfortable and you get the most out of your stay. The pool will quickly turn into your favorite part of the house as well as the patio! We cooked several times in the kitchen and had everything we needed. Location wise, it's a bit of a walk into the main part of town, but you are close to the other parts of Cahuita- Reggae Bar and WildLife Center, so it's really convenient. We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Cahuita

Fabulous stay at Casa Del Mango!

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed in Casa Del Mango with 8 of my family members over Christmas and had an absolutely amazing time. Sara, Nando and the entire Casa Del Mango family were so helpful and accommodating and even hung up Christmas lights to make us feel that much more at home over the holidays. They were available to give advice and help with any household questions that we had during our stay. The property is secure and in a great location to beautiful beaches, Cahuita's town center as well as the Cahuita National Park. The pool at the house is also a fabulous place to hang out for a lazy day of lounging! Overall, I would highly recommend this to groups and families looking for a Costa Rican adventure and relaxing get-away.

perfect!

  • 5 of 5
my partner and i stayed at "la casa del mango" for six nights (we just got back home last night!). it was a perfect location in town, close to things but quiet. a short walk from the cahuita national park, and a short drive to all kinds of fun activities on the caribe coast. we went to the sloth sanctuary, bocas del toro, panama, the beautiful parks, got amazing massages a block away, neighborhood restaurants, peurto viejo (which is a lively beach town)- there was also yoga offered in town numerous times per week. the town is quiet, and calm but has plenty of things to do.

the house itself was immaculate. clean, beautiful. even more gorgeous than the pictures. with helpful staff (especially manuel, we loved him!). all of the staff was warm, welcoming, helpful- we even hung out with sara and nando's kids, and felt like a part of the family. fyi-- they don't live/stay on site, they just come during the day to make sure we are ok! so nice! we got up every morning and made breakfast and had our coffee outside where there was no shortage of wildlife. we saw iguanas, hummingbirds and all kinds of other creatures right outside our door/window. we had the house all to ourselves, so it's hard to say what it might be like if we'd had to share the facilities with strangers, but this would be a great house to rent with a group of friends or family. there was plenty of space! it was hot though. this is the Caribbean, so that is to be expected. we spent most of our days by the pool, and by bed time, things cooled down quite a bit-- overnight, we always ended up reaching for a blanket. we were on the top floor, in the room with the see-through bathroom ceiling. pro-tip: don't leave your makeup/toiletries there all day, or you'll come home to melted lipstick and very hot lotion!

it was a great stay, we were very sad to leave, and i would definitely recommend this place to friends. i'm already trying to arrange another trip! thanks to the casa del mango family for an awesome stay!

Location

From the Owner

After visiting Costa Rica a number of times, the friends chose to find a property to buy in the relaxed beach town of Cahuita. Finding nothing that was quite what they wanted, they invested in a piece of land and built their dream home themselves. With the aim of having nature all around them and views to the mountains and the ocean, their tower emerged as a way of meeting all their desires for the perfect place.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Juan Santamaria (SJO) at 135 Miles Nearest Motorway : Route 36 at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Black Beach at 15 Metres Nearest Barpub : Reggae Bar at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Sobre Las Olas at 100 Metres Nearest Point of Interest : Soccer Field Nearest Point of Interest : La Casa de Mango Car: not necessary

Turtle-watching is an incredible experience and is a vacation must if you visit during the laying and hatching season. Imagine watching the huge females drag themselves up the beach to dig their nest and lay about 80 eggs, before lumbering back tot the ocean. To see the hatchlings emerge and struggle down to the waves is amazing too!

The Sloth Sanctury is a 10 minute drive away and allows the visitor to see rescued sloths, both adults and babies, cared for by the dedicated workers of the center. My children love to see the babies being bottle fed!

Amenities

From the Owner

Now that the pool is in place and the garden has been established around it, the house really is complete. The tower reaches up past the mango tree which gives the house its name and stretches up into the sky, for the visitor to have a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains, beach, ocean and foliage. Finally, that haven of peace and tranquility can be savoured and enjoyed.
