About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, terrace with sea view and garden, Beachfront

The location makes this establishment different from charming studios, located just steps from the pristine beach of Playa Coyote. Our lovely tropical garden leads namely directly onto the beach.

After a busy day sightseeing, surfing or sunbathing, you sit back and enjoy Costa Rica's famous sunsets from your terrace or directly from the beach because of your terrace you have a truly magnificent view of the garden, the sea and the beach.

Your studio consists of a double room (sea view) and a single room, which are equipped with en-suite bathrooms.

Since the studio has no kitchen we are provided with a coffee maker and a small refrigerator, so you have the opportunity to provide at all times both with cold drinks, smaller meals as well as fresh coffee. But several restaurants are also nearby.

Staying at our studio is ideal for those who. During your trip through Costa Rica, simply want to take a break from the sometimes bumpy and dusty roads Not to mention that if you were with us once, you never want to back away or definitely like to come back. We look forward repays to welcoming you soon in our little paradise.

What makes this guest house unique

We are right on the beach!

It is just fantastic right after waking up to plunge into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. A good start to the new day, right?

Also nice to end the day with a refreshing cold glass of wine on the beach or a swim in the sunset, has something special.

A slice of paradise Tico style

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is more spacious than the pictures give it credit.

The location was everything we wanted. We basically had the whole of playa coyote to ourselves! The beach was amazing in every way e.g. animals, sunsets, shells, water, privacy.

The apartment was clean, there were many beach toys and games available. The beds were very comfortable.

There was ample post beach showering and rinsing off facilities.

Heike and Hans were available most of the time if required and gave us lots of privacy.

It felt very safe there.

The sugar and coffee could have been topped up by the maid. Also, the beach towels could have been changed.

A small hob could be considered but there was a toaster, small fridge, coffee perculator and all the cutlery, plates etc you need.

check in and out details were a little confusing but you can always contact cafe Santos if confused.

There is also a slightly more expensive studio flat next door if you are thinking of staying with friends/family.

Owner's Response: Hello Rebecca and family, thank you for your generous review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our place so much. In our description, we do explicitly point out that our studio is particularly suitable for short stays since it has no kitchen. We did mention this before booking and offered you the apartment with a full kitchen instead. We do provide our guests with conveniences such as water bottles, coffee and sugar on arrival, which is a service which we offer but which should not be regarded as a matter of course. We are open to requests from our guests for things such as beach towels etc., (most of our guests do bring their own beach towels) and as you know we assist with organizing tours and laundry in our attempt to make your stay as perfect as possible. However, as we could see that these little things did not affect your holiday at all and we could see how you enjoyed your time here, we hope to welcome you again soon.

Relax, don't worry - be happy

  • 5 of 5

It's been one year already since my wife and I spent a few weeks away from our winter at this place. The view from the bed is picture postcard perfect: fifty yards of lawn, bordered by lush tropical plants and trees. Beyond that: a band of palm trees, a beach with golden sand and, in all its blue glory, the Pacific Ocean.

The apartment is comfortable, has excellent beds and a roomy bathroom. As we spent most of our time outside (of course), our own private terrace was mostly used in the morning, when the sun was still behind the house.

The terrace has a very comfortable set of chair and couch - perfect for hours of reading. In the afternoons, we moved to the beach, sat in the shadow of the palm trees (without risking our lives: the owners regularly have all coconuts chopped off) and regularly cooled off in the ocean, floating in the lazy surf.

We didn't miss a kitchen: we could make coffee or tea in the apartment and we often drove the ten minutes to San Francisco de Coyote to have lunch in the excellent Café Santé and dinner at the open air restaurant Lomo Clara.

All in all: a perfect place if you want to get away from it all (in our case: a dreary winter in Western Europe). If, however, you want night life, bars, hordes of other tourists and music that goes THUMP THUMP THUMP for half the night...... then this is not the place for you! The owners are friendly and left us alone, but were always happy to supply information about the area when asked for.

Our fondest memories? Floating on our back in the ocean in the middle of the night under a full moon. And New Year's Eve, with locals and tourists eating and drinking around the bonfires on the beach. Pura Vida!

Unter Palmen, direkt am Strand

  • 5 of 5

Wir wollten eigentlich nur 1 Nacht bleiben aber es hat uns so sehr gefallen das wir noch drei weitere Nächte geblieben sind. Auf unserem Weg nach Nosara haben wir zum Mittagessen im Café Santé in San Francisco de Coyote angehalten. Wir hatten nicht nur tolle Sandwiches sondern auch eine so nette Unterhaltung mit der Inhaberin Heike, dass wir total die Zeit vergessen haben. Das war unser Glück den so sind wir auf Down by the Sea gestoßen, das uns Heike angeboten hat. Das Studio ist mit so viel liebe zum Detail gemacht, die Farbgestaltung der Zimmer, die Deko aus Strandgut, so was von geschschmackvoll. Toll toll toll. Das Studio hat einen kleinen Kühlschrank und eine Kaffeemaschine so konnten wir uns unser Frühstück selber bereiten. Eine tolle Erfahrung für uns war natürlich, das wir direkt am Strand waren. Somit konnten wir gleich nach dem Aufstehen, einen Kaffee kochen und mit diesem zum Strand spazieren, wo wirklich keine Menschenseele zu sehen war. Herrlich. Den Tag haben wir unter dem Sonnenschirm auf bequemen Sonnenliegen am Strand verbracht. Zwischendurch rein etwas kühles Obst und Wasser geholt und dann einfach nur relaxed auf den Liegen das Meer genossen. Ab 17 Uhr haben wir uns unser kaltes Bier geschnappt und uns den farbenprächtigen Sonnenuntergang angeschaut. Einfach Klasse! Ne, das hat Klasse. Am Tag unserer Abreise (Samstag da hat das Cafe geschlossen), hat Heike uns zur Stärkung für unsere Weiterfahrt sogar noch jedem von uns einen richtig leckeren Cappuccino gemacht. Down by the Sea ist wirklich ein Geheimtip den wir absolut empehlen können und gerade denen ans Herz legen können, die Abstand von den lauten und überfüllten Touristenzentren suchen. Wir kommen wieder und bedanken uns ganz herzlich für die tolle Gastfreundschaft. Danke und auf bald, Pura Vida
