The Space

Located just 30min from Daniel Oduber International airport in Liberia, this cozy independent studio apartment has everything you will need to enjoy your stay in Playas del Coco. Located on the ground level the pool is right at your doorstep. Just a 10 minute walk, short bike ride,or $2 taxi and you will be in the center of town where you can enjoy all of the bars, restaurants, and attractions this town has to offer. Yet, far enough away from the action so you can enjoy quiet days by the pool.
If all of the sun has caught up with you and you find yourself too tired to make it into town, there is an Italian restaurant located beside the complex (email hidden) across the street. Comfortably furnished with a fully equipped kitchen you will also find it easy to prepare meals at home if you prefer to do so! Studio is best suited for two people.

Interaction with Guests

We do not live on the property but are located just five minutes away. If guests need anything during the stay, we are always available through email or provided cell phone. I like to meet my guests on arrival and more than happy to show them around town!

The Neighborhood

For those seeking world class sport fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling or beach and sun, look no further. For those looking to surf, Coco is a great base to head to Ollies Point and Witches Rock. Also in close proximity is the Cortes Waterfall, ziplining, and numerous other full or half day adventures . I am more than happy to assist you in booking any tours or planning some fun days. Accessible by paved roads from San Jose and down the pacific coast, this town is a perfect starting point for anyone planning a longer trip through this beautiful country. With enough to keep you busy during the days, the town really comes to life at night.

Cocos "main strip" is packed with restaurants ranging from small sodas, burger joints, and pizza to steakhouses and seafood. Discos are lively at night(and into the morning) and the casino is located right in the middle of the strip. If you are in need of more than food, just about anything you could possibly need can be found in town. I hope you can come share its beauty with us!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was my first experience with AirBNB, and Devon helped to ensure that it was a good one! She was very quick with responses to any of my questions during the process of booking her place. Upon our arrival, she was very friendly, offered many tidbits about the area, and stocked our fridge with a couple goodies. She leaves you with a phone in case you need to easily get a hold of her which came in handy multiple times. She was also very accommodating with our check in and out time since were driving across the country. The condo itself is very conveniently located: about a 5 min walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to the little town. It is well equipped with anything that you may need, and I felt that it was reasonably priced. The area felt very safe, and there was a guard outside the front gate at all times. The pool right outside of the condo, was great bonus as well! Devon warn us about the rooster at night. It did wake us up a few times, but for the most part was no big deal. The Wifi inside the apartment can be a little inconsistent, but if we were having trouble connecting, we just sat outside by the pool to check email with no problem. However, consistent Wifi seemed to be an issue everywhere in Costa Rica. If we ever find ourselves back on Costa Rica, we will definitely be staying here. I highly recommend it!

  • Devon (email hidden). Her apartment had everything you would need for a stay. The kitchen was well equipped, facilities were clean and well kept and the space showed all the touches (email hidden)e even stocked the fridge with a few goodies for our arrival. Beyond the apartment Devon was very helpful and we got the sense she really cared about our stay in Coco. She went out of her way to borrow some snorkels for us one afternoon and Playa Octol didn't disappoint. It'(email hidden) for a couple or just the lone traveller. I would highly recommend a stay with her if you ever find yourself in Coco.

  • Devon was very helpful and extremely prompt in all communications. The studio was a perfect little spot, especially since we were only there pretty much to sleep. The neighbors were friendly and the area felt safe as there was a gate with a guard at most times. It is in the more local area, so for people wary of locations in town, this may not be for you, but we had no issues and never felt unsafe. My only complaint would be the roosters right outside the window. Our sleep was constantly interrupted the first night by the loud rooster calls, but the second and third nights were better with less frequent interruptions. There was a great little pool in the complex, and a wonderful and cheap pizza/pasta restaurant next door. A convenient mart across the street was great for making quick stops for basic necessities, though Devon provided towels, soaps, sunscreen and bug spray. Overall a great stay, thanks Devon!

  • Coco was our last of 3 stops in Guanacaste and by the time we got there nothing seemed better than this cute (air conditioned) studio with a humongous pool literally outside the front door. Devon was very helpful and easy to reach throughout our stay. She had the entire Coco area laid out in a folder with all the best places to eat, shop, etc. The location was perfect, just a 5 minute walk to the beach that you can take straight into town. If we end up in Coco again, we'll be staying here for sure!

  • We had the vacation of a lifetime in Coco Beach, and a huge part of this was the cosiness and convenience of Devon's apartment. With a fully stocked kitchen, a pool right outside your door, the beach five minutes away, and the town within walking distance you have everything you need. Devon was nice enough to answer any questions, left a phone for us so we could contact her, and came immediately to help us, when we had a problem with the apartment. I can only recommend staying with Devon in Playa del Coco :)

  • I can't even explain how wonderful the stay was. Devon was more than acoomidating to us, and responded very fast to ANY questions I had.(and believe me, I had more than enough questions :)). The room was great, had everything you could need so far as dishes, pots, pans, and even a crock pot! It was the small details of the room that made it feel like a home away from home!

  • The experience with Devon was excellent from start to finish. She was extremely helpful in providing us with information about the area and made some great suggestions on places to visit that were manageable with a rental car (in particular Catarats Llanos de Cortes, Playa Conchal and Rincon de la Vieja).

    The studio itself was perfect for two of us. Two great perks were the AC in the bedroom and pool just 5 steps away from the door. The property is well maintained with staff cleaning the common areas every morning, and there was always a security guard at the gate entrance so we always felt safe. One thing to note is that the WiFi is for the entire property so you need to step out by the "lobby" area if you want to use it. Any issues that we had, which was really only a stain on the bed sheet and locked safe, Devon was quick to resolve. Will definitely stay again when we're back in that area of Costa Rica.

  • We loved the studio! It looks just like the pictures, we found the kitchen to be well supplied and enjoyed the little extras like coffee, laundry soap and flowers left in the bathroom. The pool was clean and only a few steps fr the door. The studio is within walking distance to restaurants and groceries. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Devon was an excellent host and I loved his quick response to emails

  • What an awesome stay at Devon's unit! As previously mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils needed for cooking meals. It was nice to have a fridge (bar size), blender and toaster that worked properly! The unit was extremely clean and had personal touches of "Devon". The pool and garden area were always attended to and the Security was very good. With the unit being only a 15 min walk to Coco it is extremely well situated.
    Devon is an absolute treasure! LOVED my stay at Marina Loft and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again! Thanks Devon for such an awesome experience in CR!!

  • Any one considering a stay in in Coco, will be completely happy with Devon,s awesome clean apartment. She herself is so kind and helpfull, leaving there as friends. The apartment was more then we expected, the pool area quaint and cozy, security was comforting and fellow inhabatants all on the same same page. We stayed for 2 weeks there, and had that feeling we were home. The town of Coco is a perfect small beach town with just enough of everything you need. Devon is an amazing soul.
