Great place if you love Costa Rica
Jeff has an amazing property. It is well cared for and as guests we felt very welcome. It is close to town (about $4 cab ride). You can walk to town along the beach in about 20 minutes or bike on the house bikes.
We had our two kids with us, 10 and 8. They loved the pool and all the animals that came to visit. Chameleons, toucans, agouti, giants, etc etc.
The house does not have glass windows, but does have screens throughout. The temperature is pretty static so windows aren't needed, but this always causes the animals to wake you early in the morning. If you are looking to sleep in or are sensitive to noise, you might look elsewhere.
Costa Rica is a wonderful place and this property is a great Costa Rican property. Just be prepared for noise and bugs and all the other things that make Costa Rica great.
Oh yeah, Puerto Viejo is a pretty awesome town too.
We will return again for sure!
Thanks Lane. It was so nice to meet and host you and your family. Glad you were able to experience what the nature of the tropic's and our villa has to offer.
I would certainly recommend anyone hosting their place to invite you and your family to stay with them.. Looking forward to your return.

tranquil and amazing
our favorite time here was sitting on the balcony looking down on the amazing garden, over flowing corner to corner with wildlife and botanical wonders.
the house has it all - gas stove, hot water, fresh and super soft linens.
the french press coffee carafe was a nice and thoughtful touch.
the owner, architect and builder of the house certainly put his heart and lots of thought in to this beauty.
thank you for making our stay very special.
Thank you David for sharing your experience. It was very nice to meet you and have you stay with us. I would certainly recommend anyone hosting their place to have you stay with them.
Muy lindo lugar
Muy recomendado, la casa muy linda rodeada de naturaleza y la zona de Puerto Viejo hermosa
Cottage in the jungle
We booked this property based on the rave reviews and the photos...I own my mistake. This property didn't match our expectations. It's a rustic cottage in the jungle. It's not 'boutique', but more like 'glamping'. There's screens but there's still bugs. To be fair, this is common throughout Puerto Viejo as the infrastructure doesn't seem to be as developed as the Pacific side.
After a long exhausting drive from Uvita, we arrived at Casa De Barro and the first thing my daughter saw was spiders by the bed. She refused to sleep in the house. I'm not raising a spoiled diva, she's been camping, we've gone on many jungle excursions where we admired many insects, but she didn't expect to see them indoors. The owner, Jeff, was accommodating and refunded us a portion of our stay.
Puerto Viejo is a backpacker haven with hostels full of young surfers, nature lovers, local and expat Rastafarians, and full time hammock testers. If this sounds like paradise...great, it's for you. If you prefer 5 star accommodations that are clean, polished, with crisp white towels and high end amenities, stick to the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
We're the folks who are somewhere in between, which is why I wanted to write this review...as all 5* rated VRBO's aren't 5* accommodations and sometimes the reviews are just a little too hyped, which make people think a property is WAY better than it really is. If the other reviewers had been more honest, we may have really enjoyed ourselves...knowing what to expect and preparing my family for reality is half the battle!!!!
Have you ever been in a dream?
We stayed in the villa with two kids and we simply were enchanted by the beauty around. The smell and sounds of Atlantic ocean, lush vegetation and salted air!
The place is in walking distance to the town, so even our 4 y.o. enjoyed the walk.
Jeff is an amazing host and we really felt that this place is magic!
During the day we all enjoyed the pool and the beach, while on evenings we had blast in the town, listening to live music bands.
We look forward to come back!
Thank you for making our experience unforgettable.
My Mom, best friend and I stayed @ Casa de Barro in December. We were warmly greeted in the rain by Jeff on Christmas just a few weeks ago! Jeff was such an attentive host, with great recommendations and a lovely place. We really enjoyed getting a tour of his garden and eating some of the fruits of his labor. The upper suite fit the 3 of us comfortably, we enjoyed hanging out on the porch and playing cards, looking at the great view. His location was very convenient and close to town. Thank you so much Jeff for being a great host!
Thank you Amanda for the great review.
