Angler's Lair--A little slice of heaven

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Province of Limon
This fully furnished 100 m2 ground floor apartment sleeps two; choose to have the bedroom arranged with a pair of single beds or an enormous King, all properly outfitted with high quality mattresses, plump pillows and imported linens. Furnishings crafted of reclaimed lumber include a dry-box closet, nightstands, and overhead fans. Security screens afford plenty of airflow or may be shuttered to assure absolute privacy. We've done everything we can to guarantee a good night's sleep, but the Howler Monkey “alarm clock” is beyond our control… take it up with them over your first cup of fine Costa Rican coffee enjoyed in the garden ranchita.

A complete kitchen includes range, refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, cookware and table settings allowing you to prepare your own meals. We'll stock some basic for your arrival then guide...

Interaction with guests
Owners, Janet & Nick, share the upstairs with their overgrown Rhodesian Ridgeback pup, Zuri, and an elusive cat, Delgado; they're available to you when you need, absent when you don't. Well, really, the cat does what he wants and Zuri will surely show up anytime she thinks you're willing to throw a stick.

About the neighbourhood
We are located in the village of Playa Chiquita, down the road from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. Just 300 footfalls from the sandy beach, you're an easy walk to a well stocked market, restaurants, watering holes, and a chocolate lounge. The Jaguar Rescue Center, horseback tours, cacao farms, stunning beaches, kayaking, swimming, surfing, and snorkeling are close enough to assure you won't need a car, but if you brought one, we provide secure off-street parking.
The multi-national community welcomes visitors from around the world. Featuring diverse international cuisines earning top spots on Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Google Places, you'll find Jungle Love Cafe, La Biela Sabores del Mundo, Pura Gula, Malbec, Selvyns, and Pita Bonita.

How to get there
Airport: San Jose International or Limon Regional: 100.0 km
From San Jose there are several options. The cheapest is the Mepe Public Bus, leaves out of the Caribbean Terminal in Bario Mexico. This will run you about $11. Though not fancy, it is safe and reasonably comfortable... for a bus with no air-conditioning, toilets, or deep reclining seats. You won't share the bus with chickens or goats, but there will be lots of backpackers, ticos and more than one vendor selling plantanos along the way.

There are shared shuttles that leave from the airport daily to Puerto Viejo, or you can stay overnight and they will pick you up from your hotel, I am happy to help you book this with a company I use a lot, cost for the shuttle is about $60. I have a great hotel right by the airport, we give them a lot of our clients so you get a good price in r...
