Beautiful room from tropical hard woods for up to 3 persons in charming, quiet cabinas just 200 mts from Puerto Viejo downtown and in comfortable walking distance to super markets, banks and a variety of local and international restaurants and bars.
The room is equipped with one double and one single bed both with mosquito nettings, private bathroom, fan, TV, mini fridge and shelves. Downstairs there is a semi-open lounge area with comfortable sofas and table and chairs where you can have the meals you prepare in our community kitchen as well as some hammocks for chilling. Wireless internet is available in the whole house.
We have two rooms of this roomtype for rental.
Our cabinas are just a 5 min. bike ride from the famous surfer beach Playa Cocles away and about 20 min. from the popular Animal Rescue Center in Cocles, where you can see howler monkeys, sloths and a variety of snakes and birds.
We are also glad to help you with any tour or travel arrangements during your stay, just ask us!
Der Aufenthalt bei Heidi war maravilhosa! Liebevoll eingerichtet und mit sehr viel Herzblut dabei :) es war sauber, ein tolles familiäres Gefühl mit viel Hilfsbereitschaft auch schon im Vorfeld!
Ich kann es wärmstens nur empfehlen und komme def wieder :)
Michael Gracias para todo! Beso sophie
My sister and I just had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at the coconut grove 2bedroom apartment. The pictures depict it perfectly and the location cannot be beat (across the road from the beach, minutes walk to puerto Viejo centre, bars, restaurants etc). The kitchen is sufficient for making meals if you prefer to stay in and the wifi worked great. The guesthouse had plenty of hammocks and seats which were perfect for reading or relaxing. Heidi herself was friendly, informative and attentive as a host and had plenty of local knowledge which will assist with planning aspects of your daily activities. If you're looking for affordable, safe and enjoyable accommodation on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica I cannot recommend Heidi's guesthouse enough! Thank you so much for our delightful stay!
We stayed at Heidi's Place for 14 days, and it was perfect! Nice room (cleaned every day), big kitchen to use, great entrance place with many seats and hammocks (perfect place for reading), and Heidi is a very kind and funny person! She takes care of anything and will help you when there is a problem.
Vielen vielen Dank Heidi! Man wird sich wieder sehen =)

My friend and I spent a week at Heidi's over Christmas. Heidi was very friendly, and checked in daily to make sure we had everything that we needed. Our room was clean, with fresh sheets and towels daily. The shared kitchen was great! Fully equipped for cooking almost anything. The common area downstairs was wonderful. Lots of couches, tables and hammocks to lounge in. Overall a wonderful atmosphere and stay! I was happy to spend my Christmas at Coconut Grove!
Heidi is the consummate travel host! When I was having challenges in setting up my shuttle transfer from San Jose to Puerto Viejo she took the lead and booked it for me! I could have stayed in the hostel but chose the privacy of the apartment as I was there for 28 days and have no regrets w/ this choice. The shower was huge and I never experienced a problem with a lack of hot water... waking up to my own private kitchen was also a blessing. the location is excellent as the town is literally just down the street but late night noise from the local bars and eateries was rarely a concern. If I ever needed assistance with any matter she was an excellent resource and if she couldn't address it personally she would direct me to the appropriate party no problem. The maid who came to clean daily was very efficient yet pleasant as well and Beckie, the on-sight maintenance man, could fix anything on the spot if need be. The house alarm system was also very reliable - this would be Lila the German Shepard, she was always available to keep company as she patrolled the grounds chasing off stray dogs and what not.
All in all life at the Coconut Grove Hostel was just what this newbie to global travel needed and I left Costa Rica felling relaxed and already looking forward to my return next year before I had even left!! All the best to you Heidi... see you sometime down the road soon I hope.
Clean, safe, cozy place located in the centre of Puerto Viejo. You have a fully equipped kitchen at your disposal with spices and everything. Heidi, the owner of the place, is always in a good mood and more than happy to help you with anything. The ground floor is full of hammocks and other places perfect for chillaxing. It is a bit pricier than an average hostel in Puerto Viejo but during our two weeks stay we have not seen anything nicer in the town. (And trust us, after two weeks, you DO know the "city" :))
Heidi and the Coconut Grove Cabinas was more than we could have expected! With a location 'out' of town heading towards Playa Cocles, Punta Uva, Manzanillo, and more - this property is the perfect spot for those wanting all that Puerto Viejo has to offer with the ease of escaping to the sand swept beaches to the South of town. Check-in was smooth and prompt. Our room was clean (and cleaned daily). Heidi handled a power outage with ease and everyone seemed super comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to any of my friends and don't think you'd be disappointed if you gave this a try!
Good location, nice commons area.
Super spacious, great location on the main road (yet not loud), incredible patio area with couches and hammocks that was the highlight of our early evenings.
My friends and I arrived for our two last nights in Puerto Viego. Heidi was accommodating, checked in on us to make sure everything was okay, cleaned our room each night...I really can't say anything bad about our stay. We were in walking distance to the "hot spots" of the area but the hotel was far enough from the street so that even though we were on the first floor it was quiet and we felt safe (we had barred windows, and Heidi lives right above the room we had - it was comforting knowing she was right there if we needed her). I would definitely recommend this place to someone who is looking to travel in comfort and has a tight budget.
