Overview

Limon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

Casa Caracola is a very beautiful, uniquely designed and comfortable house. It is set within a large private garden with direct access to the famous Cocles beach. The house has both ocean and jungle views. This is a self contained open plan, 1 bedroom bungalow.

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. Casa Marisa is available for long and short term rental. Please see our separate listing for this property VRBO 427600.

It 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.

* Please note that the route to the beach from the beach gate goes through a small strip of jungle (about 5-8 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.

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.

8 nights sleeping to the ocean!

My husband and I stayed at Casa Caracola for 8 nights. We had a lovely time. The property is exactly as described in listing. Thomas the caretaker was very helpful. He arranged for a tour of a local farm and was a phone call away if we needed anything. All in all it was a great vacation!

Best Vacation we've ever taken!

Best Vacation we've ever taken!
  • 5 of 5
My new wife and I stayed at Casa Caracola for a week in January 2014 for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! The house is very clean and well maintained, hard to do with the property located so close to the ocean! The garden is beautiful and you will see so much wildlife if you just look for it, we even saw the sloth for a bit! We sat on the deck with the doors to the home wide open every morning and evening before dinner and we loved the hammock so much we bought one for ourselves while there. The only argument was over who got to sit in the hammock each day!

Thomas, the agent for the property, was great! He made sure we were checked in and out on time and provided us with some local insight and suggestions as well as making sure we could contact him if we needed anything at all. He responded quickly to texts and phone calls and was always pleasant to deal with.

We decided to rent the bikes the property has on site and let me tell you... it was worth every penny. While we had a rental car and used it to travel longer distances, we used the bikes every day to go to meals, the beaches, shopping... it was so easy and mostly flat easy riding.

I cant stress enough how beautiful the area is and how welcoming the people are. If you are even remotely considering Casa Caracola and Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast... DO IT! it was the best vacation of our lives and we both have traveled quite a bit... if we were to pick up and leave the states... It would be to move here.

Thanks again Sofie and Richard for renting your house, it was amazing and we cant wait to come back. PURA VIDA

Relaxing Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful beach home. It was the perfect balance of rustic and refined. It had everything we needed [kitchen, great shower, generous porch] and nothing we didn't. We saw sloths and lizards from the deck and the beach was gorgeous. Great restaurants within walking distance. There is another house within the gated compound, but it is well away from this one.

Owner's Response: It means a lot to us when guests let us know that they have enjoyed their stay. In our opinion, Casa Caracola is one of the most idyllic, romantic honeymoon spots that you can find.

Amazing Paradise

  • 5 of 5
There cannot be enough good things to say about my wonderful stay at Casa Caracola. The pictures represent this wonderful house beautifully they however cannot express the peace and serenity it offers. The garden is a delight and the beach only a short walk away. The house is also conveniently situated close to a well stocked store and many delightful restaurants. Only a short bike ride to Puerto Viejo or a nice walk. I made great friends with the folks at Cafe Rio Negro across the bridge and was asked to join their Christmas Eve celebration including a fire dance. I found no real need to go very far since everything I needed was so close by. I highly recommend this property to anyone want to rest relax and really enjoy Costa Rica. Thanks Richard and Sophie for a nice supply of books to read out in the hammock.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that this guest enjoyed her stay in Casa Caracola. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. As she says, all of the local amenities are close by, but you really feel that you are 'away from it all'.
