My wife and I and our 14 yr-old daughter stayed at Bella Sirena Feb. 18-24, 2017. It's a beautiful house--larger than the pictures make it look. The upstairs is one large open room with windows almost all around, the kitchen and bathroom off to one side. The window/doors open on one side to give you a direct view of the forest/garden.
The downstairs also has one large space--completely open to the garden/forest for 180 degrees. Hammocks, rocking chairs, and a couch make it a great place to hang out. There are two moderate size bedrooms on the ground floor.
We saw monkeys and a sloth right in front of the house. Bugs were generally not bad.
The housekeeper, Yari, was helpful and available.
We rode bikes to the Manzanillo beach a few times, settling in under a large tree that served as a large natural umbrella (about 150 yards to the north/left when you first reach the beach from the road). I snorkeled on the Manzanillo beach (just in front of the fishing boats on the southern/right end of the beach) the last day. I love snorkeling and was very impressed by it. You need to have a day with calm water, but my sense is that the reef there is under-rated. Winter is generally not the best time for snorkeling here, but it was good this week.
We had some great meals (Maxi's in Manzanillo, Pura Gula in Playa Chiquita, and Koki Beach in Puerto Viejo). Don't miss kayaking up the river from the Punta Uva beach. You can rent kayaks at the beach for 5000 colones. You can only go up river about 30-45 minutes, but it is well worth it.
Unfortunately the area is not like North America where you can get a map and a hiking book and set out on your own. Most hiking requires a guide--trails are not marked. You can hike Cahuita Nat'l Park on your own. You will see animals, and LOTS of humans too. No need for hiking boots on that trail. It's sandy--our guide did it barefoot.
One thing to keep in mind, while it is theoretically possible to make it to Manzanillo in 4 hrs 15 minutes from the airport, we've never seen that happen and we've been there twice. Traffic in and around San Jose is terrible, and the route to the Caribbean coast is on a two lane highway--either slow trucks or accidents can set you way behind. I'd count on more like 6 hours.
If you love nature the trip is worth it.
La Bella Sirena was certainly unique - situated inside a rainforest in a quiet corner of Costa Rica. It reminded me of other beach communities around the world where folks get away from it all. Mary and the local housekeeper Yari were both gracious hosts.
It does bear mentioning that anyone going in December needs to be prepared for Noah's Ark rain - 12-14 hours a day on most days for us. Thus, the pack list for December should certainly include wellies. We might have made the walk to the Panamanian border but mud, rain and steep slopes stopped us in our tracks. Another walk through Cahuita was similar but more easily traversed.
The good side of the rain were the visiting animals. We saw howler monkeys, toucans, sloths and agoutis right on the property. I was surprised at the number of sloths we did see. Visits to the "Jaguar" rescue center (no jaguars but still good) and the cacao farm were educational. The local restaurants served good food, albeit not cheap.
All in all, it was an adventure to a different part of the world and probably best visited when slightly drier.
In February we spent two weeks in Costa Rica and stayed at La Bella Sirena - what a gorgeous surprise! Constructed of local hard woods with an open floor plan, this stunning house perfectly matches the rain forest environment. Two bedrooms w/bath on the main floor; one large bedroom w/bath up. Common areas w/tables/chairs/sofa/hammocks - two kitchens, washer/dryer (very nice to have!) and plenty of agua pura. More than enough room for our group of six; bikes for easy travel to beach and town. Used the outdoor grill one night for lobster – fantastico! Located near Manzanillo, end of the road before Panama, this is a wonderful retreat in a jungle locale: Howler monkeys, toucans, sloths, huge Blue Morpho butterflies; we saw them all right here. Yari, house-manager extraordinaire, knows everyone and will steer you right. People are friendly and we always felt safe. Mary provides great info about life/restaurants/money in CR, etc. What a trip! A nice find for independent, self-reliant, beings. Thanks Mary. Pura Vida! Mimi&Mick
We recently returned home from a wonderful and relaxing stay at La Bella Sirena. We travelled with three boys (two teenagers) and we could not have asked for more. The "jungle house", as we nicknamed it, is located in the middle of the jungle. During our morning coffee, we enjoyed the sights of howler monkeys, toucans, sloths and morpho blue butterflies. The home is well taken care of, spacious and lovely. Mary is a wonderful host and the house manager is absolutely fabulous. She attended to all of our needs, booked tours for us and assisted us whenever needed. She is worth her weight in gold !! The home is located very close to the Manzanillo beach--a short bike ride away. It is a lovely beach where you can snorkel the reef or hike through the wilderness refuge. Give Abel, a local guide, a call, he is terrific. The house is also located on a bus route to Puerto Viejo, Cahuita and Limon. We did not have a car so we either used the bikes or the local bus service which was easy to figure out. Thanks to Mary, we were also able to have a local person come into the home to make our meals....she was a terrific cook and really made it a vacation for my husband and I. We all loved this home. Our boys were able to have their own space on the second floor and we had down time on the first floor. It is a great property and a great location in Costa Rica. The village of Manzanillo is quiet, full of wildlife, great beaches and hiking and the local people are very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and we will certainly return to Costa Rica and La Bella Sirena.
We decided to stay a couple of days in Manzanillo on a Caribbean tour my family and I had. These were the last days of our trip, and by far the greatest.
This place is near to the Manzanillo beach, surrounded by enormous trees and exotic flora. Waking up each morning was beautiful, hearing hundreds of birds singing, even watching the rain fall was a joy.
My wife and I spent a week here and had an amazing vacation! Being a weary traveler and hardly ever traveling outside of the U.S. I had my reservations to travel to a remote area, but my worries were lifted from the second we got there. This amazing home is unlike anything we had ever experienced and was truly an unforgettable time.
The house itself is amazing. Beautiful wooden structure with charm and engineering feats that were an art in itself. With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 kitchens; this house is incredible for entertaining many or for two people to enjoy all of the space offered. No pictures will do this house and property justice, as a still photo doesn't capture the amount of open space and care that the home offers. The main floor offers a wide open area with no walls, so you feel like you are a part of this beautiful jungle at all times. This was great for coffee and a book in the mornings while relaxing in the hammock or at night when we would stay in to enjoy cocktails and listen to the many sounds of nature. Extremely clean and well maintained and everything you need to live comfortably. The staff was also extremely pleasant and helpful whenever we needed anything. A+ for them as well.
The surrounding towns and beaches were something out of a magazine. Some of the most incredible beaches were only a short bike ride away. Bikes were also provided and quickly turned into our primary means of transportation. The towns offered endless amounts of activities, whether it was a lazy day on the beach with a beer, or checking out a surf competition in Playa Cocles, to taking in the night life and checking out Reggae bands in Puerto Viejo, every day was a day you wished would not end. The towns had a Rastafarian vibe and is almost a Caribbean sub-culture of it's own. Everyone seems to have a care-free attitude and made a couple "outsiders" feel right at home. Extremely nice and pleasant people, no hassles or problems whatsoever.
I would recommend this house and vacation rental to anyone. Not one bad thing to say, and we will be coming back next year. In fact, we started to plan our return trip on the flight home. Definitely a different experience than an all-inclusive resort or a pampered trip, but I would argue that this is better. A better adventure, a better experience, and an all around better time!
If I could give this 10 stars I would! Thanks Mary, we will be back!
