My husband and I stayed at the Hidden Jungle Beach House for about 1 week and had a great stay. Lisa is a wonderful host and the house is very clean and organized. Close to the beach and town. You can do many activities in the area and Lisa can help you with any information yo might need. Saw a Sloth right on the property and plenty of little critters. Would recommend staying here if you are looking for a more quiet and homey stay.

We stayed at Lisa's and Christians beach house for about a week. Beautiful place, nice and clean. One minute Away from plAya negra and five minutes to the centre of puerto viejo. The owners were really friendly and gave us good advice were to go and were to eat. Bikes are for rent also. We were totally in love with the dogs.

Lisa's place indeed is a little hideaway in Puerto Viejo. Being at the edge of the jungle, you can spot many different animals (there were two sloths close by which you could observe from the living room window). At nighttime, you will fall asleep with jungle sounds and waves crashing at the beach nearby.
This however doesn't mean you're out of time. From Lisa's place it's about a 10-15 minute walk to downtown Puerto Viejo (however, you need a flashlight and shouldn't be too scared at nighttime, as the road to town (~1000ft) is poorly lit).
Lisa, the host, her boyfriend, and their pets are very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. They literally make you feel at home. Definitely a place to stay again.

Just steps away from the beach and a short walk away from the bustling village of Puerto Viejo, this beautiful, rustic beach house is ideally located. Both Lisa and Christian were friendly, helpful and always available to help with suggestions of the many restaurants, shops and attractions in the area.

I stayed with Lisa and Christian for a bit more than a month! What a wonderful experience. They are busy 'fixing things up' but always have time to share their knowledge and laughter. The room was brilliant.. I could hear the ocean as I fell asleep... , as I woke, as I lazed in one of the hammocks , as I cooked dinner! P.V has many sights which I am sure are covered in other reviews, this is really about HJBH. Easy walking distance to town, either along the beach or the road, Sativa and Santos, the dogs, are just delightful, the beach a minute or so walking.. The whole experience was just wonderful. I cant wait to be there again. Thank you Lisa and Christian for sharing your home ( oh and what a home.. a true Caribbean experience!) Fantastic!

Room Tip: my room had wonderful views and a great ambience .. but I saw them all and they were all fabulous! The Casita would be fab also for those wanting 2 rooms and more privacy
