COSTA RICA - SAN MIGUEL - BEACHFRONT COTTAGES

Playa San Miguel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

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.

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

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.

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!

JANUARY TRIP, 2014

  • 5 of 5
The cabinas were beautifully constructed with plenty of space. The grounds were well kept, the best I've seen in the area with a perfect view of the Pacific. The breakfast brought to the cabina in the morning were as good as it can get in Costa Rica with more than you can eat, great taste and fantastic price. Absolutely no crowds on the beach allowing for the most relaxing time. I will definitely come back. Miguel, the owner went out of his way to help us a make sure everything was perfect.

PERFECT WEEK IN SAN MIGUEL

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we've stayed at Miguel's house in San Miguel and we loved it. The beach is a few steps away from the patio and is our favorite in Costa Rica. Few people, good for surfing and boogie boarding and nice shelling. We like the modern design of the house a lot and especially appreciated the beautiful bath as well as the outdoor shower.

Miguel was extremely kind in helping us with everything from rental car questions to local restaurant recommendations. We really appreciated how quickly he got back to us if we needed anything.

We love the house for it's modern appointment, the beach for it's seclusion and beauty and Miguel does a fantastic job making sure everyone has what they need. Just fantastic!

Pura vida!
