Property description

The beaches of San Miguel and Playa Coyote are one uninterrupted ribbon of powdery sand that stretches for about eight miles and is blissfully crowd-free. Until just a few years ago, very few people — other than the local residents and families from the capital, San José — came to these beaches.

By the end of the 1990s, when the five-star resort at Punta Islita (15 km north of San Miguel) opened with a small airport, visitors started noticing San Miguel.
There are two identical cabins named Plenamar and Veramar. Each cabin, developed on a 1/3-acre parcel fronting the beach, has two floors totaling 800 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath.

The cottages were built in 2009.

The first floor is 16' x 24', has two twin beds with two extra trundle beds, and a small kitchen-dining area. An attached 12' x 16' covered porch opens to the garden. There is an outdoor shower.

The second floor has a 15' x 16' bedroom with a queen bed and a 5' x 12' bathroom. Walls and roof are done with masonry and reinforced concrete. Floors, doors, and trim are made of local sustainable woods — Cedar, Cenizaro (Samanea saman), and Pochote (Bombacopsis quinata). Finish specs feature porcelain and glass tiles, Baldwin door hardware, Toto plumbing fixtures, and Grohe faucets. Upper floor Bedroom has A/C. All rooms have ceiling fans.

Only a few hundred yards south of the property, Estero San Miguel, fills and empties with the tides. It's a great place to swim and watch wildlife. Howler monkeys are frequently seen—and heard! Further south and larger, Estero Coyote, runs several kilometers inland and features a small fishing harbor. There are boats available for hire to tour the estuary or to go fishing. Visit one of the turtle conservation stations, in San Miguel or Caletas. In July - August, you can see the Arribadas, the arrival of turtles on the beach to lay their eggs, watch the eggs hatch and see all the newborn turtles swim to the ocean.

You can rent horses in the area, and there is very good surfing and boggie boarding right in front of the cabins.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Miguel, Marie, and their two daughters have been visiting Costa Rica for over 20 years. They moved from Nosara to San Miguel to get away from the hectic beaches and re-discover the tranquility Costa Rica has to offer. As an Architect, Miguel has designed the beach front cottages with gracious details. We hope you enjoy the cabins and area as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Playa San Miguel:
Uncrowded beaches and natural beauty is what first comes to mind when visiting San Miguel. Nothing compares with being able to walk to the beach or surf right in front of your house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location, location, location. beach, surf, and restaurants all within walking distance.
