Interaction with Guests
We cook you breakfast each morning and we are available all day to help with tours, info about our area and restaurants. We can also lend you snorkel gear and beach towels..
We are located in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. We are walking distance to the beach, the Sunday farmers market, a bank with ATM, restaurants, beach bars, corner store's, a fruit and veggie stand and a local butcher. Almost all fruits, meats and cheese are organic from local farms. There are always fishermen walking around town selling their fresh catch of the day and others selling chilled young coconuts called pipas.
The public transportation in our area is really good. The bus is usually on time every hour on the half hour. We have a bus stop only a 3 min. walk from us. The bus goes all the way down the coast to Manzanillo
Please smoke on your private balcony or anywhere outside, thanks so much!
Jessica and Gabor were great! Jess gave us lots of good tips for what to do in Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. We really enjoyed chatting over breakfast each morning. The apartment was great and the bed was super comfortable. We felt very safe and welcomed.
Hemos estados alojados durante 6 días en Coconut Love y ha sido una experiencia maravillosa.
La casa es muy acogedora y está equipada para poder cocinar tu propia comida. Cerca hay un supermercado-ferretería que venden de todo.
Gabor y Jessica fueron muy atentos y nos orientaron acerca de las actividades que se pueden hacer en la zona.
Un sitio muy recomendable sin lugar a dudas
Wonderful place to stay in cahuita! We had everything we needed and Gabor was a very helpful and attentive host. It was very easy to get to from the bus station and just a short walk to the beach! Breakfast each morning was an added bonus and very delicious. Safe and quiet location. We would definitely recommend to others without hesitation!
We stayed in a coconut love for 5 days. Despite some moments we had a great time. By moments I mean a few things such as: at first it was quite difficult to find the place. It would be great if you include a map how to get to your place from the bus station)) a freezer in a fridge didn't work ( but in such a hot country it is a necessity). But nevertheless, as it was mentioned in the previous reviews- breakfasts were great, everything was clean, you have fans in each room and you can ask hosts to change towels ( cause they just wouldn't during rain season) . Hosts are friendly and nice and will help you with all inquiries.
Thanks for you review. I do apologize about the freezer, we have since fixed it and now it's working perfectly. About the hosts not changing the towels: I am very sorry about that! Our cleaning lady should have put more for you, we usually supply enough. I wish you would have spoken to us directly about this problem. We do have a map that is sent with every booking itinerary and is always a good idea to print it off before you leave for your vacation. Thanks again for staying with us!
Coconut Love est un endroit très agréable un tout petit peu à l'écart du centre ville.
Pour s'y rendre il faut chercher le restaurant "Sobre las Olas" et prendre la route qui s'éloigne de la plage, puis aller au fond de la deuxième rue sur la droite.
L'appartement est grand et à sa propre terrasse avec hamac. A 5 minutes de la planta negra et a 15/20 minutes du parc national de cahuita et de sa belle plage blanche (pour s'y rendre il suffit de traverser le village).
Petit déjeuner très agréable sur leur terrasse, mais étant en basse saison il était moins généreux que sur la description : pain perdu ou œuf brouillés avec jus de citron frais et café.
Par contre quelques points négatifs : l'appartement sentait l'humidité lorsque nous sommes arrivés et il y avait deux cafards morts sous le canapé.... La présence de cafard dans ce pays est certes inévitable, mais le ménage aurait peut être pu éviter cela..
Thank you Una for your very detailed review ;) we do have many breakfast options available for our guests. We always have French toast, eggs and toast, yogurt and granola, fresh fruit, fresh juice, organic coffee and tea. The dampness is a little unavoidable being as we are located so close to the ocean and Costa Rica does get humid. We will work on that. I do apologise about bugs. We take great precautions to keep them out but we are located between jungle and beach which make it hard sometimes. We wish you good luck with rest of your travels!
Todo fue perfecto. El lugar estaba limpio y ordenado y el desayuno de ensueño.
Cerca de hermosas playas y todas las comodidades. El anfitrión súper amable. El lugar muy seguro. Nos encantó
Everything was perfect. The place was clean and organized, and breakfast was as dreamed. Near beautiful beaches and all the amenities. The host was so kind. A very safe place. We just love it.
My son and I stayed at Coconut Love for 7 nights. It was his high school grad gift from his dad and I. I cannot say enough about the hospitality of our hosts Gabor and Jessica! They were there to help us with every step of our trip! Helping us to schedule ziplining, fishing trips, and making sure we knew where everything was in the small town close by! The night we arrived, Jessica, despite already having had her dinner, walked us to a local Italian restaurant so we could eat! They were available for all of our needs, and helped make the strange country, feel like home within hours! We were able to navigate the buses, taxi's, and walks with ease anywhere we needed to go because of their help! They were wonderful in keeping up the apt while we were there, they cleaned the apt and changed our sheets and towels 3 times during our stay, which may sound small, but in the humidity and rain of the rain forest, that is HUGE!!! Breakfast every morning was wonderful, and even on the days that we had plans that made us miss their breakfast, they would bring us the supplies to prepare ourselves early the next morning! They were so wonderful, and Jimmy and I felt that we gained friends like family in Gabor, Jessica and their sweet baby boy, during our visit! Because of their kind assistance, we fell in love with this country, and hope to return again, one day!!! This was our first trip outside of the US and we have the international travel bug now, we just hope we will be as fortunate when we visit other places, and get hosts as wonderful as this family was to us! Thanks again you guys! We miss the pura vida, and our days at Coconut Love!!!!
