A very private little cozy place, specially for a couple , or a little family, far enoughr from the noisy location of Puerto Viejo and bars, is a perfect place to spend some days in contact with nature and the beach which, is located only 150 mts from the house, a perfect calm beach with a coral reef right in front to snorkeal or dive or simply rest under a palm . Full kitchen and full bathroom upstairts , plus a 1/2 bath downstairs and an outside shower.

THIS LOCATION IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A NATURAL REFUGE , SO ALL KIND OF ANIMALS TRAVEL AND LIVE IN THE AREA, IF YOU DONT WANT TO HAVE THEM INSIDE , THE HOUSE , WE HAVE SHADES IN ALL WINDOWS, SO PLEASE USE ALL SHADE DOWN, IF NOT PLEASE DONT RENT CASA YUMKA

The house is a two floor location, the big bedroom upstairs has a king and single bed, with mosquito net. An open bathroom with mirrows and window to the surronding.

On the bottom part, you will have sofa bed and couch TV area with Netflix, attached to the kitchen area and an elongaded benck with a desayunador or breakfast table. Half bathroom.

On the third area, it is a lower part, with a roof and a net all around which is very fresh. It is mean to be a living area a social area, but in case there is more people hosting, they might if wish , sleep on the sofa bed which is almost in the garden, only the net and the roof will separate your from the jungle, is very fresh at night and is like sleeping in a tree house, jungle all around, it is also the BBQ area and has the washing machine for your service and use. You will find cleaning items for the house.

The price is meant for a couple, 2 pax.
The house is really meant for a couple or little family.
Or can accomodate 5 pax which will be sharing the main bedroom, and using the living area as a bedroom .
Each extra person, will pay $ 5 per night .

The house can host up to 7 pax if they wish, for a short time,

It has an outdoor trampoline for little kids and friends to share and jump in the garden, under the stars with the howler and spired monkeys.

Howler monkeys are part of the surrounding and the fauna, frogs, toads, tucans, parrots , birds, crickets , etc....a concert of animals will dive you into the jungle.

In the morning the local buses which park in front and depart from the parking in front , at Cabinas Veranera, turn the engine and is the only sound that might interrupt the nature concert. (NO LONGER WITH PANDEMIA NO DIRECT BUS)

Toilets and grease are an issue in the Refuge. Please do not trought any condoms, tampax, toilet paper not any objet down the sewege. Also with grease in the kitchen please try to trought it into the garbage not into the sink.

We have 1500 liters to be used in case as it might happen , water in the Caribe Sur (AYA) rubs out so please be very aware of these issues .

The house roof is not isolated from the sounds or heat, but the house is under the trees so very fresh even during hot hours and rain is just so relaxing , but noisy might be the violence of the tropical storm in Caribe Sur , indeed under our costarrican roofs .

Other things to note
Important, the safety of the house : the safer part of the house, is the bottom, please close well all windows and doors , the door that goes upstairs, is important when you leave the house, to cross one of the bars on the middle of the door, and the windows by the table must have a screw to avoid any accident and robbery.
Is important to close the bottom part very well and leave precious belongings and pc downstairs.
Upstairs you can leave it open if you wish , but as we leave in a 3rd world country is always better to prevent and lock passports , pcs and cells , money on the little safe box by the bed or the one under the bathroom sink.

Same going to the beach do not leave your items unattendant and do not carry valuable thing with you on your visit to the Refuegee.
Always better: prevention !
