Right on the Beach! Ideal for a nature lovers seeking solitude or adventure. Enjoy the privacy of your own space in our eco cottage just steps away from the ocean. Watch Scarlet Macaws fly overhead above our yard stopping to eat from our almond trees! If you have a sharp eye you'll see monkeys high up in the palms enjoying their meal of coconut fruit and milk. Relax on the porch or patio and watch birds, squirrels, iguanas and even the neighbors chickens meander through the yard.
This adorable cottage is situated in a neighborhood setting just beyond farmland and palm plantations. It is nestled among palm trees on a beautiful, secluded property right on the Pacific Ocean. The spacious rooms and kitchen are furnished with all the essentials you need for a simple yet relaxing and enjoyable vacation in spectacular Costa Rica. All rooms are open and airy with ceiling fans. The bedroom is equipped A/C. A screened in porch with overhead fan provides a cool spot to enjoy the ocean views away from the sun. There is even a small reading library!
Just steps out the door is a pristine beach perfect for walking. Walk or jog along the beach for miles in either direction. A 40 min walk south down the beach will take you to an estuary. At low tide walk out TOWARDS the ocean some 200 feet! Chill on the beach in lounge chairs under beach umbrellas. Swim with boogie boards. Watch pelicans, plovers, sanderlings at the beach. The sunsets are one of the most spectacular sights and worth watching from the beach each and every night.
The serenity here is addictive and you may want to spend every day relaxing on the porch or ocean side. But just 10 min away in Parrita you can find cafes, grocery and drug stores. Within 45 minutes you can be in Quepos at the new marina, diving in Manuel Antonio or in Jaco where fishing, surfing, souvenir shops and other tourist attractions abound. And within an hour you can visit Domincal with it's lush forests and waterfalls.
This quaint cottage with it's jungle meets ocean setting is perfect for the adventurous couple or those seeking solitude. A great way to see life in Costa Rica away from the usual tourist congregations. The central location also makes a great home base for a longer stay. Head south along the road beyond Parrita to explore the Osa Peninsula or north to the Nicoya Peninsula.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the location or our cottage. We have been spending several weeks here every year for many years and we cherish the time. This property and ocean are a nature lovers paradise. Our cozy cottage is our second home. We think it will delight you too!

Nice and clean property. It is at "the end of the road" making it nice and peaceful. Close to lots of grocery and restaurant options. The busiest I saw the beech was maybe 5 people on a long walk. If you want a place to relax and veg out, this is it
This was the ideal place for us to get away - unwind, listen to the waves and enjoy the birds (including parrots!). The private back yard leads to a long beach with clean, soft sand and water as far as I could see. Every day during our walks, flocks of pelicans passed us overhead. This place felt like an antidote to beach resorts - no loud banana boats zipping across the water or beach vendors passing by. Relaxation came easy here. The house is very clean and the decor is tile with white paint and turquoise trim - soothing colors that feel more like a home than a vacation rental. The kitchen is laid out well, with good supplies, and the rooms offer well organized space. The A/C and ceiling fans are a nice plus. Just the right size for two. It's a tossup which to recommend more - walking on the beautiful beach or relaxing on the porch. Either way, it's easy to recommend this cottage. Bring binoculars and a camera!
This cozy beach cottage is the perfect way to relax and enjoy/explore Costa Rica! The owner's description is accurate and the place is immaculate. The sun porch is the perfect place to enjoy the ocean if you are not out on the beach watching the perfect sunset! The cottage is tastefully decorated and well appointed. We found great local food and hikes quite close by, with many fun outdoor activities nearby as well. The surrounding area is clean and beautiful and you are right on the central pacific coast of Costa Rica! It was one of my favorite trips and the cottage added a wonderful base from which to see a lovely country.
