Owners & Dreamers
My husband Philip and I, are from Toronto, Canada. We are so excited about our dream beach house! Because we, sadly, can't be in Puerto Viejo all the time right now we've decided to share our home by the beach with you and your tribe. We are happy to offer you the wonder, excitement, passion, peace, calm, adventure and hospitality of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Built in 2018 our beach home is both modern and traditional, built with comfort and style in mind we haven't forgotten that this is a place to chill out and relax.
We first visited Puerto Viejo with our daughter in 2008. We rented a tiny beach Cabana at Christmas time and we fell madly in love. We enjoyed the peace and serenity that Playa Negra offers us and the excitement and fun that Puerto Viejo offers too.
Our family finds our peace here. On the beach, SUPping down the rivers, Kayaking, swimming, walking, riding bikes and exploring restaurants and new adventures. We come here to refill our cup and then are able to head back to our busy North American lives with strength and peace. Life gets busy and we lose sight of the wonders right in front of us. Puerto Viejo allows you see these wonders and lets you gain the benefits of everything it has to offers. If you love adventure this is the place for you. If you are a foodie, explore the many restaurants in town owned by locals and expats from around the World. You will find every type of food available to you on any given day. If you want to relax and do nothing there are beaches and hammocks everywhere. We encourage you to explore and get lost in the amazing place we love and cherish.
We rented homes all over Puerto Viejo before buying land on Playa Negra just outside of town. Moving forward we worked with local builders and were able to design, what we feel, is a fabulous and welcoming Beach House. As North Americans we found that sleeping without air conditioning was difficult in the tropical heat but we enjoyed the Costa Rican style of open air living as well. We decided that to help beat the heat we'd put in air-conditioning and overhead fans in the bedrooms so sleeping is comfortable. We put in a plunge pool for those days it's difficult to cool down. Plus, of course, the sea is seconds away for quick dip. All our deck and sitting areas are breezy and in shade to get the best of the Costa Rican day. We made sure there is plenty of comfortable and cozy seating for meals and just hanging out. We encourage you to explore the area, Manzanillo, Puerto Viejo, Cahuita and everything in between.
“Welcome to Casa Luna Beach House, make yourself at home!"
