Limon, Playa Chiquita
The house is located on a 10 acre ocean front property in the famous Punta Uva beach, just south of Puerto Viejo in the province of Limon. Total privacy, a natural tranquil atmosphere, and full relaxation are keywords for the time you will spend at this property. With your own beach access and 300 meter beach front, you won’t have to meet anybody else during your stay at this romantic hideaway. The water is safe and no riptide or dangerous coral reefs are reported. The small bay of Playa Chiquita is just at 300 meters from the beach entrance.
Every day at 4 o’clock a group of people meet to play volleyball on the beach. Young and old are welcome to join. You can also paddle a kayak up the peaceful rivers and trough the mangroves swamps that meet the sea at the idyllic beach of Punta Uva. Kayaks are available for rent on the beach in front of the Ranchito restaurant.
The botanic garden is one of a kind. Over 50 different palm trees are growing in the garden and there is the largest Heliconia collection in the area. The house is hidden between tropical plants. The extended gardens are the favoured place for many exotic birds. In the morning, you shouldn’t be surprised if you look out of your window and see the howler monkeys around your house. They wake up early and they won’t hesitate to let you know they are awake.
Built on tall stilts, this back-to-your-childhood house is submerged by the forest, with a sloped wooden suspension bridge leading steeply to its front door. Inside it’s split level: upstairs, a double king size bed and a small toilet; downstairs, a second double bed, a single bed and a kitchen. There’s enough room for a family, however also very romantic and very suited to a couple.
All of the furniture is hand carved sustainable wood, windows are open but screened against bugs, while scarlet Birds of Paradise flowers provide splashes of colour.
The shared bathroom is back on ground level and this is fabulous: a 100-year-old Sangrillo tree shelters a toilet in one trunk fold, an outdoor shower in another. A mirror is framed with seashells; towels are folded into different shapes each day.
