Cocles house description

Pimienta Negra is a recent house, built in the traditional Caribbean style typical of the Puerto Viejo area.The colors of the house and the unique ceramic artwork in the bathrooms, give this house a true Caribbean feel and make it very special.
The house is surrounded by beautiful rainforest, giving it a tree-house like feel. A large terrace with comfortable seating allows you to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest. Toucans are seen daily along with many other kinds of exotic birds, occasionally sloths can be seen in the trees and howler monkeys can be heard.
There are two near-identical bedrooms, with en-suite facilities, both with views over the surrounding forest. Each bedroom has a queen-size bed and a day bed, which could serve as an additional bed. The en-suite bathrooms have walk-in showers, both with fantastic mosaic artwork created by a local artist.
There is a large kitchen, which opens up to the terrace and with views towards the front and back garden. The house is built on stilts, in the traditional way, and underneath is parking space and a ‘hanging out’ area with hammocks. Pimienta Negra sleeps 4-6 people and would be the ideal place to stay for somebody wanting to ‘get away from it all’ but still be close to beaches and amenities. The house has a beautiful garden with some amazing tropical flowers and an incredible selection of heliconias.
For internet access we provide a a data card which can be plugged into your computer providing a connection. Also nearly all restaurants and bars have free WiFi
Puerto Viejo itself is a small coastal town, but the nicest beaches lie to the south of the town. The most popular beach for swimming and surfing, and the only one with a life guard, is Playa Cocles, approximately 2.5 miles south of Puerto Viejo town. The Playa Cocles area has good restaurants a bakery and two supermarkets.
Pimienta Negra (our house)is situated one mile (1.6 kms) inland from Playa Cocles beach, up a jungly road called Calle Margarita. If you do not have your own car, bicycles are an ideal way for getting around the area, but please note that Calle Margarita is an unpaved and slightly hilly road and will require some effort.
(Owners tip) We recommend that if you are hiring a car in Costa Rica it is best to have a 4 wheel drive style vehicle or car with high ground clearance as a lot of the roads in the area are unpaved or paved but with many pot holes. This applies especially in the Peurto Viejo area but also in the whole of Costa Rica and will get to see many more interesting places if you have the right vehicle.
We also provide a maid service.
We look forward to welcoming you to our property.

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Roberto E. de la Ossa T., a retired professor of International Relations at The National University of Costa Rica and the Johnson family from England.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cocles:
                          The Puerto Viejo area is an incredible beautiful area with wild beaches. There are lots of things to see and do, and a great variety of excellent restaurants and shops. The feel of this place is so different to other places in Costa Rica, with the people, the music and the food all exuding the 'Caribe' feel. It is also easy to get to from San Jose.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Pimienta Negra is beautifully well-built in a typical Caribbean style. It has fantastic terraces which give you a feeling of being amongst the rainforest, and is an ideal platform to observe the flora and fauna which is so rich in this area. The colors of the house and the unique ceramic artwork in the bathrooms, make this house very special. The garden is full of tropical flowers such as Heliconias and Bromelias.
