Property description

Casa Caracola is a very beautiful, uniquely designed and comfortable beach front bungalow. It is set within a large private garden with a gate leading directly onto the golden sands of the famous Cocles beach. This house is one of the few in the area to be situated in a highly prized beach front plot, as most are situated on the other side of the road. The house has beach, sea and jungle views. This is a self contained open plan, 1 bedroom bungalow.

Casa Caracola is situated within a stunning beach front lot. To the front, there is direct access to the beautiful golden sands of Cocles Beach. It is surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife. The house affords privacy, allowing the residents to truly relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. However, it is also perfectly situated close to the amenities of Cocles and only minutes away from the vibrant town of Puerto Viejo.

The house is within easy walking distance of restaurants, wifi points and grocery stores and it is only an 8 minute drive to Puerto Viejo. It is an ideal vacation spot for people who want to relax to the sound of the waves and jungle. Nature surrounds and enhances the house, whilst maintaining high standards of comfort and design.

We also have a two bedroom, two bathroom house located on the same site called Casa Marisa. This property sleeps 4 people and it is perfect for families. It is also a great house for couples as it has a beautiful elevated master bedroom with handmade four poster bed and en suite tropical bathroom. Please see our separate listing for this property VRBO 427600.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Relaxing in our favourite spot along the beach. We love Costa Rica, especially the Puerto Viejo and Cocles Beach area. The houses are our dream and we hope that everyone who stays in them enjoys them as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Cocles, Costa Rica:
Costa Rica offers a wide variety of spectacular terrain , animals and plants. With its unique location it boasts both Pacific and Caribbean coast lines. The Caribbean Coast offers a more relaxed friendly holiday with the added excitement of some extreme sports, for those who want to venture away from the delicious local food, drinks and beach. There are many reasons why Puerto Viejo is known as the most happening town on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. There is so much to see and do here, but far and away the overall vibe here is the 'pura vida' that Costa Rica is so famous for. So whether you come to relax under the palms on one of Puerto Viejo's beautiful beaches or try and tackle the surf at Salsa Brava (just 100 yards away) or Cocles, there is also great snorkeling and diving in the areas active coral reefs. Or how would you like to hike and bike through the jungle? There is also excellent white-water rafting in the area. It is all possible here. Puerto Viejo is also conveniently nestled between two of the area's most beautiful national parks where white-faced and howler monkeys, toucans and sloths abound. You will also want to come just to sample some of the area's famous dishes like the Caribbean-style rice and beans made with coconut and many other exquisite varieties of food in this little village.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Cocles Beach is the winner of the highly coveted Costa Rican government Blue Flag for pristine beach and is the only lifeguard-protected beach on the Caribbean Coast. The golden sands meet the warm Caribbean ocean and from the beach no buildings are visible. This beach has both great surfing at one end and safe swimming for families with children at the other. Please note that the route to the beach from the beach gate goes through a small strip of jungle (about 10 metres in width). This is national park and therefore cannot be cleared, so at times it can be over grown. If guests have mobility issues, the beach can be easily accessed from the main house gate, where the beach can be reached by just a short two minute walk along a small lane.
