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.

“My life changing vacation”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Many trips I have taken in the past have been all inclusive stays at resorts, though they were all lovely they cannot compare to the experience I had at Casa Corazon del Mar. I felt like a local here. I immediately felt welcome by the two owners of Casa Corazon, they gave me great advice on the best places to eat and shop. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation that is definitely different from anything you've done before I recommend this place! It is in the perfect location, close to the beach that is never crowded, and walking distance from great markets, restaurants, hiking trails, and night life. The house is spectacular, it is the perfect combination of comfort and style. It is very open to the rainforest surrounding it. As a solo traveler I never felt unsafe going places on my own. I am certain I will be returning again soon!

“a very cozy and romantic spot for you vacation in Puerto Viejo”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Casa Corazón del Mar is located just outside of Puerto Viejo, by Playa Negra, just a short walk from the beach, the location lets you enjoy the romantic setting of the Casa, taking your vacation to a whole new level of comfort and relaxation by being away from downtown and still being able to enjoy the restaurants and night live in Puerto Viejo in just a few minutes. The Casa has it's own pool right next to it and it's surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. I'd definitely come back.
