Our 2 bedroom cottage is custom built and PERFECT for a romantic get-away or family vacation. With a stunning ocean view, it's a 10-15 minute walk to the beach, and a short bike ride to town. If you are a nature lover, this place is perfect as it is nestled in a tranquil cacao forest. You will wake up to sounds of wild parrots and howler monkeys. You will go to sleep to the sounds of the ocean and our nocturnal friends, and occasional fruit falling on the roof.
Our home sits on an ocean view mountain top on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, near Playa Cocles. We are located 300 meters from the beach on a working cacao farm.
You must have a 4WD car or be able to climb a moderate slope for certain parts of our road. Our guests are welcome to walk the grounds of our private road to a private waterfall. We just ask that you respect our neighbors who are trying to do the same. We do conduct chocolate tours during certain times of the day, so we ask that you be mindful of the short time that the tour is next door.
Because we are a vacation rental home and not a hotel, there are no permanent residents on the property and as such it is of vital importance that you coordinate your check in several days before your arrival. The property manager will organize her day to make sure to be at the property at a time that is convenient for you. and for this to happen, there must be plenty of communication well ahead of time.
Interaction with guests
We have a wonderful property manager who has a wealth of information and solutions for any needs you may have.
