About the property

Beach front 3 bedroom on Playa Cocles

One of the finest locations on the Caribbean for a beach home rental, Casa del Mar is located on Cocles Beach, just down the beach from one of Costa Rica's famous surf beaches. The waters in front of Casa del Mar are wonderfully inviting.

This three bedroom, one bath Caribbean home is quite private with a comfortable outdoor deck you will enjoy as your living space. A second living area includes couches and cable TV for some downtime. The kitchen has modern appliances and fully equipped. Two bedrooms with queen beds, one with two twins, Internet as well.

The beach is just a few steps away and there's an outdoor shower as well to clean off the sand on your way back.

Barely visible from the main road that runs along the Caribbean Coast, great restaurants within walking distance and Pri Pri Grocery store nearby make this a wonderful beach vacation home. Laundry service available next door, La Cameleon Hotel just across the street for a wonderful dining experience and La Pecora Negra Fine Italian Dining close as well.

About David Fair

Having lived in the area for several years and worked for Banana Azul Hotel, I am excited to branch off into Vacation Home Rentals. Having moved here from the mountains of Colorado, many many years, I have found the Caribbean to be an amazing place here in beautiful Costa Rica....the culture, the food, the locals and the expats....and the beaches are as pristine as anyplace I have ever been.

David Fair purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house unique

Having so few beach front properties here on the Caribbean, this remodeled Caribbean Style home offers amenities not available in the area.

Nice beach house

  • 4 of 5

My family of five decided to rent this house because it was right on the beach, was spacious, and had a kitchen. It also fit our budget. The location was definitely perfect, and it had plenty of beds. It was also nice that it had 3 bedrooms because then we were not all squeezed into one space. However, the reason this house lost a star was because of the kitchen, which was not completely clean. Other than the kitchen, this home is the perfect vacation getaway on a beautiful beach. We saw howler monkey in the trees just outside and we were immersed in nature, with a virtually private beach. One thing to note is that the beach has very strong waves, so it is not the best for swimming, but it is good for boogie boarding if you have your own board.

Lovely vacation paradise!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot find a better spot in the Puerto Viejo area to stay at than this listing. David was a wonderful property manager and very helpful in the ways of Costa Rican life. This spot was away from the hubbub of the main town, but still within biking distance - and there is a bike shop and lovely pastry shop 2 doors down.

I cannot wait to go back and see the monkeys and the sloths hanging in the trees in the backyard.

The Most Perfect Cabina by the Sea EVER

  • 5 of 5

I spent the month of January )with some friends joining me for a week). I wouldn't know where to start with how much I enjoyed this piece of heaven so I will just start with...this place is PERFECT. You can walk for miles on the beach--and it is a beautiful beach. You barely need to leave the deck--I spent hours in the hammock and even the view from the kitchen while cooking is breathtaking (wake up and watch the waves from the master bedroom). It's peaceful--you, the sloths, some howler monkeys, giant blue butterflies and cute lizards. The location is prime--you can walk to one of the best restaurants in Costa Rica (Pecora Negra), grab a smoothie or a great pizza at Casa del Pan, or eat a traditional Costan Rican meal at La Nena. You can even stock up on fruit or patis by literally walking out your back door. Rent a bike from Jose at the tailor shop 2 doors down and you can explore Puerto Viejo, Punta Uva (love this beach for swimming, especially with kids) or head to Manzanillo. You can even have your hair braided or get a pedicure at Celia's next door. After all my exploring, everything I needed was within 1/2 mile. The house is well appointed, has A/C if needed, the internet is 4G, but you will spend most of your time on the outside patio which is HUGE. David and Celia are wonderful hosts!! Anything I needed from extra towels to advice instantly materialized. If you want to feel like you live on the beach this is the place. I feel incredibly lucky that I found it and can't wait to return!

A Month In Paradise

  • 4 of 5

we spent one month at this lovely place directly in front of beautiful beach.We woke up in the morning - after Yoga on the deck, walked into the sea .Great outdoor living space - even if it rains , nice rocking chairs on the decking to chill and watch the sea or the wildlife in the garden - lots of beautiful birds, lizards, agouti.......

Compact inside space, nice rooms and comfortable beds.very safe area.Easy access to town,(max $4 taxi ride even late at night) but far enough for peace and quiet.

David is a great guy, any issues were dealt with promptly and he is very knowledgable of the area and helped us with any questions we had.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying at this lovely little house in Cocles. It is close to everything you might need but away from the bustle of Playa Viejo. With three bedrooms, there was plenty of room for us to spread out. The property truly is right on the beach, just a few steps from the house to the sand. David is an absolutely fantastic property manager. Definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable house.
