vacation rental description

This home is a nature lovers paradise! It is nestled in a beautiful garden full of flowers and fruit trees AND is only 200 yards from the warm waters of the Caribbean. The yard is so full of wildlife that you will see more animals, birds, and reptiles than you will in the Cahuita National Park. On almost any given day, you will see or hear toucans, iguanas, exotic butterflies, sloths, parrots, howler monkeys, agoutis, or tropical frogs. This home is very unique in Cahuita. No other home in our town will allow you such a personal relationship with nature. We are fortunate that a wild sloth that has chosen to live in our Almendra tree only 5 meters from the house!.

This home provides you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the real Costa Rica without sacrificing any modern conveniences. You will have a full sized kitchen with quality brand name appliances, wifi internet, a safe for your laptop and other valuables, an on demand tankless hot water, and an American purification system for drinking water.

If you choose to leave this Garden of Eden, within a 5 minute walk from the house you can – take a surf lesson, go horseback riding, snorkel, savor the delicious local cuisine of the Paradise Restaurant or enjoy the calming vibes at Reggae Bar.

Downtown Cahuita is a mere 15 minute walk away – just far enough to ensure your tranquility yet not so far that you will need a car. There you will find a mix of wonderful restaurants, shops, bars and tour agencies to cater to your individual needs.

And don’t forget the Cahuita National Park. There you can play on the beach, kayak or simply admire the acrobatic skills of monkeys as you walk through the jungle.

If comparing listings, may I suggest a few questions you ask the owners prior to making a decision:

1) Will I have to cross a highway from your home to reach the beach?

2) From your home, is the nearest access to the ocean made of sand or huge old coral formations?

3) Do you have a purification system for drinking water? Don't lose precious vacation time due to stomach illness.

4) Can I flush toilet paper down the toilet or will I have place it in a waste bin next to the toilet?

traveler reviews for this cahuita house rental

A great adventure

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: July 31, 2014

This was a great place to take my teen son. There was incredible wildlife and a very friendly community. The house is lovely and Troy was helpful and available for whatever we needed. We did snorkeling, zip lining and even traveled to Panama and back in the same day. It was a great adventure and a wonderful bonding experience with my son.

A peaceful paradise

Review submitted: February 21, 2014   Date of arrival: December 19, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Troy's to escape the cold of Canada. It was perfect. We were looking for a place to relax near the beach, with lots of wild life but not too far from town. Troy is a very gracious host- meeting us at the house to explain what to do, where to go and basically just familiarize us with the area. We felt right at home instantly. The house is very well-maintained and provided us with every comfort we could have hoped for. The internet is super fast, filtered water and little things like a coffee grinder were all really appreciated. Cahuita is a very sweet little beach community. The kind of place where everyone says hello. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Thanks again Troy!

Great place to stay

Review submitted: August 4, 2013   Date of arrival: July 24, 2013

Stayed with my wife and our 14-year old son for 8 days. We loved sitting out on the deck with a beer and watching the wildlife in the garden and the town is easy walking distance. We walked to town at least once a day. The accommodation was perfect for us, Troy provided lots of useful information for us to arrange tours, showed us wildlife in the garden, recommended where to eat, etc. In the garden, we saw many types of birds including hummingbirds, toucans, antbirds and vultures, agouti, many frogs includng poison arrow frogs (the only place in Costa Rica we saw them wild) and, of course Bruno the sloth. We went to the beach and the national park (Cahuita national Park is very nice and a great place to see wildlife, particularly monkeys and sloths, more easily than in some other places in Costa Rica (we didn't need a guide). We saw 2 types of monkey (many sightings), sloths, iguanas, frogs, land crabs, snakes and many bird species. We also saw sloths in town. We took a trip to Bocas del Toro, Panama with Willies tours in Cahuita during our stay that was also very interesting and different (we snorkelled, dived and saw the red frogs at red frog beach). Overall, a great place to stay in Cahuita and Troy is very helpful and accommodating.
