What are people saying about us?Isabelle from Switzerland     April 30, 2017

I stayed for nearly 3 months at Pedro's studio and really enjoyed my stay!

The location is amazing, the house being just steps away from the black sand beach (Playa Negra). The studio was just what I needed: a quiet place with a stunning view; the place is simple yet well-equipped, the kitchen has everything one needs to prepare simple meals. There's a phone and a good wifi.

Puerto Viejo is an easy 20 minutes walk on the beach away.

Being upstairs in front of the ocean, you almost always have a nice breeze, especially welcomed on hot days. I spent hours on the deck, simply admiring the surrounding nature.

Susana - the property manager - is a sweetheart! She lives nearby and takes really good care of the guests. Oscar (who takes care of the backyard and also does repairs and such), as well as Keylin (the lady who does the cleaning) are both very nice as well.

This place was really my home away from home!

We stayed at Pedro's Place for 2 weeks in february 2016. It was perfect. We rent the first floor with two bedrooms (for 3 prs) and it was more than what we expected. The beach is just in front of the house. There is a restaurant and a market at 2 mins walking. Puerto viejo is close too. You can rent bike at Banana Azul (5 minutes walking. The house it's safe. Susana take care of us when we need it... and she can recommand you a very nice guide (Karina) who speak freanch, english, spanish and german. There are all you need to be like at home (kitchen it well equipe, bathroom is nice and there is phone and wifi).
I highly recommand to rent this house!!!
Hope to be back soon...


What are people saying about us?Mike & Natalie from Atlanta, GA     November 24, 2013

Stayed there in mid-November...couldn't have found a better spot! The two of us stayed in the upstairs studio. The porch/patio alone is worth the price of admission. Great view. The pictures do not do it justice. The beach is in your backyard. Just outside of Puerto Viejo, so it was nice and quiet. There is a small grocery and bar/restaurant and the end of the street. Town is a really quick taxi, a short bike ride or about a 15 minute walk on the beach (our preferred method)away. The town is small, and has an incredibly cool/relaxed vibe. Make sure you stay for at least 2 weeks(We only stayed for a week...way too short!) Susana, the very kindly manager, lives a couple houses down if you need anything. Can't say enough good things about the place...and can't wait to get back there!


What are people saying about us?Lianne from Canada     June 01, 2011

Although we were not able to stay at Pedro's Place due to a double-booking mistake, the owner's response to the error was incredibly professional. We received a phone call within days and a full refund of our deposit as well as an honest apology. He offered us an alternate similar property and took full responsibility for the error. I was very impressed with how he dealt with the situation.

This is an owner with integrity. We hope to someday spend time at Pedro's Place.

What are people saying about us?Erin from Orcas Island, Washington     May 03, 2011

My husband and I stayed at Pedro's Place for our honeymoon and it was wonderful!
The location is perfect; on the beach, close enough to town and amenities but far enough away to be removed from the cars and noise of town. The unit upstairs is perfect for a couple. It has a great deck with views of the ocean and beach that gives it a treehouse feel.
We will definitely stay here again!


What are people saying about us?Melissa from San Francisco     November 16, 2009

We stayed at Pedros Place for the month of October, 2009. We loved it! The location was perfect: right on Playa Negra, just steps to a perfect beach with very few people. The house is wood which is pretty neat, screens on all windows keep the bugs out, and it stays very cool during the day. Unlike other houses we considered, Pedros Place has reliable high speed internet, phone, and cable TV. The wild horses are very gentle and really do graze on the lawn, sometimes six at a time. Very cool.

Susana, the caretaker, lives right down the street and is incredibly warm and friendly. She promptly responds to any questions or issues that come up. La Violeta is a well stocked quick mart just down the street. There are several hotels within walking distance that offer laundry service and buffet breakfast.

The town of Puerto Viejo is great. Such a cool vibe and so many restaurant to chose from. We had a hard time trying all the places we wanted to eat at. We felt very safe in town and at Pedros Place.

Overall, it was a great time, and we highly recommend it. We'll definitely be back next time we visit El Caribe.
