About this listing
One of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in all of Costa Rica. Adorned by coconut palms and fruit trees. Perfect for those wishing to relax without crowds or line-ups Only 5 minutes by ATV or a 30-40 min. walk from the ferry crossing in Quepos to our 3 1/2 acre piece of paradise. The pristine beach of black sand stretches roughly 10 km. from Cocal/Marina Pez Vella to the Boca at the north end of the Isla.
Free transportation provided to our location from Quepos on arrival and departure.
Our location is a very unique, private and secure three and a half acre property and is located right in front of the ocean of the Central Pacific, not a buggy 'ocean view' as others offer. Also featured is a thatched 'Rancho' right at the beach where you can relax in the shade but still watch the waves rolling in and the boats fishing in the distance. We also hang hammocks in a shady almond grove between the house and beach. Never crowded at our location and the ideal property for relaxing.
The apartment is on ground level, so no stairs to climb. There are also 2 outdoor showers to rinse when returning from the beach. Bring your own beach towels.
The apartment is fully equipped with full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. All amenities of home. We can also lend you a cooler to take to the beach. NEW: A/C available for extra charge.
As our guest, you will have access to rental boogie boards for playing in the surf, for a very small fee. Also, if you would like to try your hand at surfing, we have a long surf board as well as a 2 person kayak available by the day or week.
Included in your rental is WiFi which has great range and can reach to hammocks located among a grove of almond trees between the home and beach.
Unfortunately, data is somewhat limited in Costa Rica since the de-regulation two years ago.. This year we are only able to purchase 1gb at a time. so we need to regulate it a bit. However, is available any time for searching, emailing, etc when required, just not suitable for streaming movies or videos and such. We hope to be able to up grade to satellite service supposedly coming later this year, which we expect will improve plan limits.
