Just a short walk to the beach, a great gourmet grocery store and several restaurants, this house is in a really choice location, close enough to the village of Cocles so that everything is accessible but far enough so you can enjoy the forest tranquility. We have built with comfort in mind, properties located right on the beach, are hot, swampy and quite buggy in most seasons, our home is located 300yds from the beach, on a slight incline to catch the breeze.
Ask about our Welcome fruit basket and flowers as well as our spa treatment package. ,WI-FI, SATELLITE TV AND ADT SECURITY! Please take a close and careful look at other homes being offered in our area and I'm sure you will see that this home's location and amenities are above the norm.. This is the vacation home of some finicky people who have lived in the tropics for years and have done everything to make themselves and you comfy.
About the Owner
Friends brought me to this part of Costa Rica in 2003 and I fell in love with the friendly community of Cocles. From the first night listening to the frogs, birds and monkeys, I was hooked and decided I had to find a way to return.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Casa Cacao is a beautiful place...We truly enjoyed the home's design, comfort and functionality. Your furnishings, linens and amenities in general were ideal following a 3 week road trip crisscrossing Costa Rica. The laundry duo are to die for...would have liked to bring them home with us. The TV/satellite/WiFi are spectacular...especially loved the music channels.
Our ten day stay in Cocles enhanced our love for the area's beaches, flora and fauna, restaurants and overall friendly atmosphere. Casa Cacao provided an oasis after each day of discovery. Even the weather was great with limited rainfall and great surf. We were astounded at the wide selection at the 'Super Cocles' market, a most convenient neighborhood asset.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location
Would have been perfect, but the house was really missing some of the basics - garbage bags, hand soap in the bathroom, laundry soap etc. We spent a lot of time trying to track down Leo with no luck, and didnt have a phone so couldnt call. Otherwise, a really wonderful stay.
Beautiful Home in the Jungle!!
Six Perfect Nights
Well designed and super accommodations !
Thanks for great stay and service !
From the Owner
“I purchased the Cocoa Hill property in 2006, and completed the first home the following year, I have built 4 others at Cocoa Hill and have maintained the Caribbean architectural style. I wanted a property that was close enough to the beach, the grocery store and restaurants to walk or ride my bike.”
Activity and Interests
We are a short walk or bike ride from a variety of awesome beaches, surf beaches, snorkeling, you name it. In the other direction are 40,000 acres of virgin rainforest, abundant with wildlife, toucans, monkeys, jungle cats. This is a great place to swim or hike and just enjoy the marvels of nature.
