vacation rental description

Forget your alarm clock; awaken to the sounds of conga/howler monkeys and tropical birds in this Caribbean style home just 300 meters from Cocles Beach for surfing, swimming and sun bathing.

Made of Costa Rican hardwoods and ceramic tiles, this nearly 2000 square feet, 2 BR/2&1/2 Baths home has an open floor plan downstairs, where the hummingbirds like to visit, and a wrap around balcony upstairs with 2 spacious bedrooms. The home is surrounded by forests and beautiful fruit trees affording a lot of privacy (with luck you might see toucans eating the papaya); and yet you will not be isolated as there are neighbors close by. The next door neighbor has a guide and taxi service. And another neighbor, Johanna, (just a 2 minute walk away) has a very nice family run restaurant (called a soda in Costa Rica). You must try her Caribbean style corvina (sea bass). A car is not necessary as you will be only minutes walking or biking for anything you may want to see: beautiful beaches, jaguar refuge, horseback riding, restaurants, night life, grocery stores, internet cafe, etc. As an option, 4 banana bikes are at the home available for your use for an extra fee of $3day/bike, with 2 boogie/body boards included for playing in the ocean. The banana bikes are a popular way to see the sights (if you need more,others are available in town for $4-6/day/bike).

The home is located in Miss Winnie Town, a small community within the city of Cocles, less than 2 miles south of Puerto Viejo. The neighborhood is named in honor of Winnie who is the mother of the property manager, Oscar. They will take good care of you during your holiday. In the neighborhood there are vacation and permanent Tico homes(Tico is a friendly nickname for a Costa Rican). Here you will enjoy a lot of privacy and at the same time you will have friends and neighbors close to you. Thanks for your interest in this wonderful home we call Casa del Caribe in Costa Rica's most beautiful and most unspoiled tropical paradise!

traveler reviews for this punta uva house rental

Great house in Cocles

Review submitted: March 9, 2014   Date of arrival: February 14, 2014

We were at Casa del Caribe for two weeks and enjoyed our stay in the town of Cocles. It was excellent having the use of the bicycles as that is the best way to get around. Cocles is very, very quiet and if you spend your time at the beaches you will have experienced a paradise! The house itself is well appointed for travellers. The kitchen is small but you can make meals there with no problem. Listen for the loudspeakers which announce a fruit and vegetable vendor coming around. Stop them and you will get an amazing selection of food. The Mercado at the end of the street is convenient but quite expensive. Joanne's Soda is good. Our favourite was the Argentinian place right beside the Mercado, awesome food!! We enjoyed being in the jungle with the birds and armadillos all around us. Good place to stay if you like to be outside in nature and dial it back. If you don't like quiet and beaches, Cocles is NOT the place to go.

Recommended for: age 55+, tourists without a car

Owners response: I am very happy you liked the house and that you enjoyed Cocles and Costa Rica's Caribbean. Cocles, by local standards, is an area with properties that are a little more upscale than Puerto Viejo, which has some "rough areas". For example, the only 4 star hotel in the area is a short distance from my home. The beaches nearby are pristine, with the jungle/forest right at the water's edge, and there is an abundance of wildlife here as well. This is Costa Rica's most natural and most unspoiled part of this beautiful, little country. As you pointed out, at times Cocles is not crowded (most people like that). But when you want a little different activity during the day or evening, Puerto Viejo is only 2 miles away, or a short 15 to 20 minute bike ride. Bicycles are very popular here; and for the convenience of my clients, I try to have several available at the house for use at about half the cost of renting them in Puerto Viejo.

Casa Del Caribe.

Review submitted: December 11, 2013   Date of arrival: November 29, 2013

This is a handsome, well built house nestled in a cluster of small houses in Miss Winnie town neighborhood of Cocles. The bedrooms were comfortable and we felt very secure sleeping there. There is a heavy door with a dead bolt at the bottom of the bedroom stairs, I don't think we ever even closed it at night. The bathrooms were clean and spacious, one upstairs one down with an outdoor shower and tub. The kitchen is small but well appointed with a full size fridge and gas stove/oven, we were able to cook in most of our meals.
This is a great base camp, weather you're going out to explore the area, or just hanging at the beach, it's a comfortable house to come home to. We are very private people and there were times when the neighbors felt a little to close, but over all I would recommend this property to anyone. The market is very near by, and fresh seafood can be found in town for pretty reasonable prices. I didn't meet the owner, but he was very responsive via email.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you very much for the very positive review of the house; and I am very pleased that it served as an attractive, comfortable, and safe base camp to explore this country's beautiful, Caribbean coast. The house is in a small neighborhood within 300 meters of Cocles beach to the East, with the Jungle just to the West of the property. The client is exactly correct about the closeness of other homes. There are 5 homes very close, within a hundred meters, 2 of which belong to my property manger and his mother, Miss Winnie (the neighborhood is named after her), and the 3rd house in front belongs to my assistant property manager who moved here from California. The closeness is very typical of neighborhoods in Costa Rica; and as the property owner, I take comfort in knowing there are 3 families close by who look after your welfare during your stay in Costa Rica.

Amazing month in a beautiful Tico home

Review submitted: November 19, 2013   Date of arrival: October 15, 2013

My friend and I stayed at the beautiful Casa del Caribe. It was easy to find and the gentlemen driving us had no problem finding the nearby supermarket and Robert's directions from there are very clear.

We arrived and Joanna, who has a soda next door, helped us find Oscar and his family.

We were set up with keys, bikes, boogie boards and beds in no time and we were all set. The travel safe was perfect for keeping travel documents and cameras, etc. safe while out and about, giving us peace of mind that our things were always safe. The closets were also stocked with towels and bedding which was great, we didn't need to bring our own.

The neigbours are all great, friendly and helpful. Freddie, next door, has his own little tour operation and he is a fantastic guide. Very friendly and quite knowledgeable. He took us on a tour of a nearby cocoa farm, then took us over to the Panamanian border before stopping by a waterfall for a quick dip. We learned a lot from him and he also checked in with us throughout our stay to ensure we were doing alright and didn't have questions.

The kitchen in the house is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and is a great way to help keep costs lowere on a longer stay. We often cooked from home and were able to make great meals.

Other great local spots to hit: Punta UVA for snorkelling (if you have your own gear you don't need the tour here to see some great fish), Playa Cocles for surfing/boogie boarding (great waves), CariBeans for some great coffee and chocolate, Tasty Waves for some great tacos and more partying scene and the Jaguar rescue centre is a must see when you're in the area.

We had some minor issues on our stay (that are bound to happen in a month long stay) such as running out of gas for the stove, but a quick e-mail and the tank was replaced in a couple of hours. Oscar and his family are so great and were always quick to respond if we ever had any problems. He came over many times to ensure everything was going well.

The neighbourhood seemed quite safe and the whole town, for that matter, is as well. Certainly take the standard precautions to avoid pick pockets, etc. but we didn't have any issue at all with suspicious behaviour.

The blue cord for internet was down while we were there, but the wifi worked quite well from the back porch or the hammock area. The signal was usually strong enough for Skype calls home which was great!

You certainly won't be disappointed here!
