This place is just amazing! Owners John and Eric are wonderful as well and made our experience unforgettable. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a beautiful adventure. We were met and escorted through the jungle by John who had already stocked our fridge with treats and wine. He and Eric have special hearts with six rescue dogs and a rescue cat! Love these guys! I have so many favorites about this place but My favorite part of the dome was sitting on the observation deck at dusk listening to all of the jungle sounds and watching the beautiful wildlife unfold around me. I really can't say enough good things about the dome and the guys who own it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

My wife and I stayed for three nights in this unique and beautiful house. We loved the layout, design and location of the house. The upstairs deck is a great place to relax with a drink and take in the natural surroundings. The shower is amazing. The pictures don't really do it justice.

We rented bikes and it was a short ride to down town. We even rode the 12km to Manzanillo then hit Punta Uva on the way back. I recommend that.

If you're squeamish about bugs this may not be the place for you but if you realize that you are a guest in their natural environment you can easily get by.

John, the owner, was a fantastic host. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us and the fridge was stocked with eggs, bread, butter and juice for the next morning's breakfast. He gave us the low down on the town and the best places to visit. Stashu's restaurant was the highlight of all the places we ate.

We stayed there for four nights. The house is in the middle of the jungle, however, not far to the beach and the city.
We were spoilt with a unique experience of the echo house. It has everything you need. A pool in front of the door, a kitchen with all equipment, a great bathroom with bamboo tapware, a nice sleeping room and a kind of balcony on top of the house.
The renter lives close and takes care of any wishes you may have.
Thanks for a great stay and also for the tips of the "must-do's" in the area!

John and Eric were amazing hosts! They were more than accommodating with our delayed check-in schedule, greeted us with wine and champagne and were so helpful with their suggestions of things to do in the area. They really know their design too, from decorations to plants!
The dome home was so unique and perfect! It's located in a private beautiful area and is within walking distance of town, they have bikes available and a taxi was super cheap to and from town.
It doesn't get much cooler than reading in a hammock on the awesome observatory deck overlooking a jungle. The shower was super neat and the little private pool complete with jets was a huge perk.
We saw agouti's running around and frogs were hopping about, plus some insanely cool insects, which was the experience we were looking for! The room is a completely bug free zone and super cozy.
If you're looking for a one of a kind experience in Puerto Viejo look no further - this is it!

Casa Corazon del Mar is by far one of the nicest, most unique and relaxing place that we've had the privilege to visit. Set in a lush jungle setting with beautiful gardens and and unspoiled beauty.

The propery boasts an abundance of greenery, birds, butterflies and soothing jungle music. We viewed and experienced too many to list, including sloths! Somehow, our host and jungle whisperer John had them visit us first thing in the morning right outside our door of my birthday! A magical memory I will cherish always.

The dome is a well thought out, spa like self contained little piece of heaven! Outdoor living at its finest with beautiful stone, plush towels, rain shower, comfortable bed, beautiful details, lovely decor that embraces the surrounding and a for the non "roughing it couple" like ourselves..bonus hot water on demand and exceptional wifi!

Our hosts John and Eric who live next door are exceptional hosts! They went above and beyond to make our stay a wonderful and memorable experience ..and without question, two of the lovely people we have had the honor of meeting on our adventures.
