Overview

Playa San Miguel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The beaches of San Miguel and Playa Coyote are one uninterrupted ribbon of powdery sand that stretches for about eight miles and is blissfully crowd-free. Until just a few years ago, very few people — other than the local residents and families from the capital, San José — came to these beaches.

By the end of the 1990s, when the five-star resort at Punta Islita (15 km north of San Miguel) opened with a small airport, visitors started noticing San Miguel.

There are two identical cabins named Plenamar and Veramar. Each cabin, developed on a 1/3-acre parcel fronting the beach, has two floors totaling 800 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath.

The cottages were built in 2009.

The first floor is 16' x 24', has two twin beds with two extra trundle beds, and a small kitchen-dining area. An attached 12' x 16' covered porch opens to the garden. There is an outdoor shower.

The second floor has a 15' x 16' bedroom with a queen bed and a 5' x 12' bathroom. Walls and roof are done with masonry and reinforced concrete. Floors, doors, and trim are made of local sustainable woods — Cedar, Cenizaro (Samanea saman), and Pochote (Bombacopsis quinata). Finish specs feature porcelain and glass tiles, Baldwin door hardware, Toto plumbing fixtures, and Grohe faucets. Upper floor Bedroom has A/C. All rooms have ceiling fans.

Only a few hundred yards south of the property, Estero San Miguel, fills and empties with the tides. It's a great place to swim and watch wildlife. Howler monkeys are frequently seen—and heard! Further south and larger, Estero Coyote, runs several kilometers inland and features a small fishing harbor. There are boats available for hire to tour the estuary or to go fishing. Visit one of the turtle conservation stations, in San Miguel or Caletas. In July - August, you can see the Arribadas, the arrival of turtles on the beach to lay their eggs, watch the eggs hatch and see all the newborn turtles swim to the ocean.

You can rent horses in the area, and there is very good surfing and boggie boarding right in front of the cabins.

About The Owner

Miguel, Marie, and their two daughters have been visiting Costa Rica for over 20 years. They moved from Nosara to San Miguel to get away from the hectic beaches and re-discover the tranquility Costa Rica has to offer. As an Architect, Miguel has designed the beach front cottages with gracious details. We hope you enjoy the cabins and area as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why The Owner chose Playa San Miguel

Uncrowded beaches and natural beauty is what first comes to mind when visiting San Miguel. Nothing compares with being able to walk to the beach or surf right in front of your house.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location. beach, surf, and restaurants all within walking distance.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Angelita and I had a fantastic time in Playa San Miguel.
Your cabinas made us feel so comfortable and truly enhanced our vacation.
To have the ocean right there in front of us as we have our breakfast, lunch, and siesta is truly a treat.
To be able to (attempt to) surf as soon as I awake is something I will cherish.‎...very cool.
Having the beach to ourselves was incredible, and what a beautiful beach it is.
Dominga's ‎meals were like my moms...wonderful. Say hello to her son Andres.
Joe the security guard has his eyes and dogs on alert.
Maria and Erick welcomed us and took care of our needs as if we were family.
‎Your cabinas again were great, the design is so functional at the same time looking architecturally slick!
‎With the doors opening wide allowing us to absorb the views ...worked extremely well. No need for the ac in the bedroom.
‎The grounds...awesome. The resident birds, cool!
Your generous hospitality and willingness to share your knowledge of the area ‎is very much appreciated..... many thanks!
We return rejuvenated, thanks!
‎We are considering a return......stay tuned.

Second time around

  • 5 of 5
This was my second visit, but only the first for my wife. We had a wonderful time at Playa San Miguel. And my wife loved it there, as I had hoped. It's such a beautiful place. I’m sure we’ll be back.
Dominga and Maria were very kind to us. Great breakfasts!
We managed to catch waves right out front every day.
We followed Miguel's recommendations, and went to the Butterfly Farm, and stopped at the Rhodeside Café for coffee. We also ate at CocoLoco.
One highlight was Los Corrales restaurant in Pueblo Nuevo. My wife and I went to dinner on karaoke night. We were very entertained, and had a great meal. The locals were very nice.
This may be my favorite place on earth.

Hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, secluded cottage right on the beach. The owner is very helpful with information, suggestions and answering questions. Awesome place for folks who want to slow down and avoid crowds. Dominga brought us breakfast on a few mornings and the owner is right, she does make the best gallo pinto in town.

amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently returned from spending eight amazing nights at Las Cabinas. We stayed 4 nights in the green cottage and 4 nights in the yellow one, both spotlessly clean, comfortable and extremely well maintained. The lovely lawn leading right on to the beach was a like an aviary with all kinds of wonderful birds. At night the fireflies would come out and make our evenings enchanted!

There is an estuary at the end of the road that fills up every high tide and becomes what we called our private salt water swimming pool. Crystal clear and no undertow.



We were brought a home cooked breakfast every morning by Dominga, who lives down the road, $6 US a person, a real deal as there was usually enough left for lunch.Juice, coffee, fruit, eggs, etc....something a little different every day and always delicious!



The owner of the properties, Miguel, was exceedingly helpful both before and during our stay with information of things to see and do, places to eat, what was available in the area in the way of groceries, gas, etc...

We would recommend a stay to everyone, including our best friends, it is a lovely peaceful relaxing place.

A fabulous place to stay in San Miguel!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 2 girlfriends stayed at Miguel's cabin for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it! Miguel was very lovely to deal with and made the whole process a delight from the moment we inquired about the cabin's availability.

The cabin was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook dinner every night. During the day, we took full advantage of the boogie boards provided and lounged on the hammock while enjoying the sunset. We felt safe and secure during our stay and Maria was very helpful with any questions we had.

Thanks Miguel for the fabulous accommodation and I will not hesitate to recommend your cabins!
