Benno and his wife are lovely people! They were very helpful when my 12-year-old daughter caught a stomach bug, making her tea and getting her some fresh coconut water from the trees right there on the property. :) Benno is quite the talented craftsman as is evidenced by the cottages and their furniture (all of which he built - check out his homemade bike too if you have a chance!). Super quaint space with magical surroundings, just a short walk to the beach or into town. We loved it and wish we were still relaxing out in the hammocks!
Worth mentioning: We're the outdoorsy types. We like roughing it a bit... living in nature... If you're looking for 5 star accommodations, then this lovely little corner of Cahuita might not be for you! Don't be surprised to see a fair amount of bugs about (inevitable given the location), and even little lizards in the shower. This is the jungle, folks! Part of the charm of staying here is in how natural and organic it is. This said, the cottage was very clean and the shower was nice and hot with decent water pressure (very welcome after the last 2 places we stayed in CR not having terribly hot water). It was a totally appropriate space to bring a child, especially given the 2 floor layout, making it easy for kids to have their own cozy space upstairs! Benno dropped by every day to check in on us and was eager to bring us anything we needed. We give it 5 stars and would love to return if the opportunity might arise! Thanks Benno!
