Overview

Limon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Casa Caracola is a very beautiful, uniquely designed and comfortable beach front bungalow. It is set within a large private garden with a gate leading directly onto the golden sands of the famous Cocles beach. This house is one of the few in the area to be situated in a highly prized beach front plot, as most are situated on the other side of the road. The house has beach, sea and jungle views. This is a self contained open plan, 1 bedroom bungalow.

Casa Caracola is situated within a stunning beach front lot. To the front, there is direct access to the beautiful golden sands of Cocles Beach. It is surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife. The house affords privacy, allowing the residents to truly relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. However, it is also perfectly situated close to the amenities of Cocles and only minutes away from the vibrant town of Puerto Viejo.

The house is within easy walking distance of restaurants, wifi points and grocery stores and it is only an 8 minute drive to Puerto Viejo. It is an ideal vacation spot for people who want to relax to the sound of the waves and jungle. Nature surrounds and enhances the house, whilst maintaining high standards of comfort and design.

We also have a two bedroom, two bathroom house located on the same site called Casa Marisa. This property sleeps 4 people and it is perfect for families. It is also a great house for couples as it has a beautiful elevated master bedroom with handmade four poster bed and en suite tropical bathroom. Please see our separate listing for this property VRBO 427600.

About Sophie

Here we are horse riding on the beach directly in front of the house.

We love Costa Rica, especially the Puerto Viejo and Cocles Beach area. The houses are our dream and we hope that everyone who stays in them enjoys them as much as we do.

Sophie purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Sophie chose Limon

Costa Rica offers a wide variety of spectacular terrain , animals and plants. With its unique location it boasts both Pacific and Caribbean coast lines. The Caribbean Coast offers a more relaxed friendly holiday with the added excitement of some extreme sports, for those who want to venture away from the delicious local food, drinks and beach. There are many reasons why Puerto Viejo is known as the most happening town on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. There is so much to see and do here, but far and away the overall vibe here is the 'pura vida' that Costa Rica is so famous for. So whether you come to relax under the palms on one of Puerto Viejo's beautiful beaches or try and tackle the surf at Salsa Brava (just 100 yards away) or Cocles, there is also great snorkeling and diving in the areas active coral reefs. Or how would you like to hike and bike through the jungle? There is also excellent white-water rafting in the area. It is all possible here. Puerto Viejo is also conveniently nestled between two of the area's most beautiful national parks where white-faced and howler monkeys, toucans and sloths abound. You will also want to come just to sample some of the area's famous dishes like the Caribbean-style rice and beans made with coconut and many other exquisite varieties of food in this little village.

What makes this cabin unique

Cocles Beach is the winner of the highly coveted Costa Rican government Blue Flag for pristine beach and is the only lifeguard-protected beach on the Caribbean Coast. The golden sands meet the warm Caribbean ocean and from the beach no buildings are visible. This beach has both great surfing at one end and safe swimming for families with children at the other. Please note that the route to the beach from the beach gate goes through a small strip of jungle (about 10 metres in width). This is national park and therefore cannot be cleared, so at times it can be over grown. If guests have mobility issues, the beach can be easily accessed from the main house gate, where the beach can be reached by just a short two minute walk along a small lane.

Everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

This is a place that will draw you back! Comfortable and private Casa Caracola is the perfect beach house for a couple who want to get away from people yet remain a short bike trip from a cute little town with numerous dining choices. Cocles Beach, immediately outside the gate, is a great one and there are numerous others nearby offering good snorkeling and great swimming. With floor to ceiling bi-fold glass doors opening to the water, the well-secured property makes it possible to feel completely comfortable leaving things open to listen to the waves pound the shore at night. I perfect property in a perfect place!

Relaxing spot on the Caribbean

  • 4 of 5

We spent the last week of our two month trip here at Casa Caracola. The property suited us very well and was as described. We were surprised to find the beach side of the property fenced with razor wire and green mesh that obscures the view of the ocean. We enjoyed the cooler climate of this area and loved the beach at Punta Uva. We saw sloths and morpho butterflies and heard the monkeys close by. We mostly cooked our own meals, but had an excellent dinner at El Refugio, the Argentinean restaurant in Playa Grande, just south of Cocles.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that these guests enjoyed their vacation and that Casa Caracola lived up to their expectations. The fencing ensures that our guests and property are both secure and private. Many guests actually choose our houses as they are some of the most secure in the area. As the house and terrace are elevated, guests still have a lovely view of the beach and sea, which is just outside the gate.

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful! Comfortable! Casa Caracola is everything the pictures suggest and more! I was looking for a peaceful retreat with access to activity and got it. The perfect combination of privacy for rest and relaxation with space to hang out, and access to restaurants, different beaches and things to do in Puerto Viejo, Playa Chiquita, and Punta Uva. Open floor plan such a wonderful use of the space and ability to open up doors and windows for great views and connection to nature. When you're watching dishes with your back to the beach, the sea is still reflected in the window looking out on the beautiful garden. Don't forget to look up for wildlife. One dusk, I heard howler monkeys and thought, they sound like they are right on top of me, and it's because they were, high up in trees right by the property. A favorite was to catch the bus into Puerto Viejo and walk back, partly on the road and finishing on the beach. This property is well cared for, and owners and agent helpful and knowledgeable. Recommend Casa Caracola for folks who seek activity as well as those who want a quieter time. I did both. It is easy to go up the beach to Puerto Viejo, an interesting and diverse town. Don't forget to also go down the beach as the water and beaches are different in different areas. Much to discover and learn about the history of the people and the area, as well as incredible beach, jungle, mountain terrain and wildlife. I want to go back.

Beautiful, Ideal setting in an Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Caracola! It was everything we were looking for, and more. We were steps away from the beautiful Cocles Beach and steps away from town where there were excellent restaurants. The house was a peaceful retreat, with an open floor plan and windows and doors that fully open and invite nature in while still feeling very private, comfortable and safe. Thomas was very helpful, and having access to bikes was a special bonus that allowed us to get back and forth to Puerto Viejo throughout our visit. There were so many more activities, restaurants and days on the beach that we wish we had time to enjoy. We can not wait to visit the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica again and will certainly stay at Casa Caracola when we return!
