Welcome to Casa 'Punta Tranquilo', ideally located on Playa Cocles, just one kilometer away from Puerto Viejo, providing privacy and seclusion within an easy 3 min walk to the beach, bar and restaurants.

The house is the last one on a dead end road and is located in a quiet neighborhood. Set in an attractive tropical garden surrounded by jungle, it is just 200 meters from Cocles beach. It is truly one of the best location in the area, very close to town, yet just minutes from the most beautiful beaches of the South caribbean.

It features 2 charming bedrooms, one bathroom, a laundry room, and a big living area with kitchen, living room and a big deck. The main attraction is the 4 electrical shutters that allow the house to be fully opened to the outside and enjoy the deck and the beautiful jungle surroundings. Easily manageable with remote controls, the house will be safely shut in only a few seconds whenever you want to leave.

The house is very well equipped and offers :

Toucans, hummingbirds, sloths and monkeys often visit the property.

Attention has been brought to details and decoration with plenty of art crafts from all over the world.

This is a very practical and comfortable home to spend your vacation, as a couple or in family.

  • We had an amazing stay in this house. Located just out of town it is very private and secluded. We spends lots of time relaxing in the jungle on the covered patio. Ameli was very helpful. This is a great spot in Puerto Viejo!

  • A very special house, only by pressing a tiny button on a remote control it fully opens its front side to the tropical garden surrounding it. Life in the rainforest. Huge butterflies and hummingbirds fly past your hammock. The sound of frogs, birds and howling monkeys from trees close by.
    Amelie has been a pleasure and very reliable to communicate with. Highly recommend.

  • We stayed for 5 days with two kids, and we had an amazing time at the house. We had everything we needed, including bikes which we used a lot to go to the beach, the town and the jaguar rescue center. The porch and the garden was really nice, and the kids loved the hammock. Amelie was very sweet and picked us up in town on the first day, she was really easy to communicate with! All in all it was amazing! We would definitely go back!

  • A nice apartment, in nice quiet location.
    After some initial problems, we spent a happy Christmas there (and on the beach).
    Would stay again

  • Amelie and Thomas are great, you can't ask for better hosts. We felt like friends the fist minute we met them :) The house is cool, nice sense of design, and that's what sold us on the first place . Location is good too, we recommend this house :)

  • My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our stay at this house! The house is in a great location in Cocles, just outside the downtown Puerto Viejo area. We loved being so close to town but also valued the quieter atmosphere and nicer beaches of Cocles. It is also a good midpoint between PV and the beaches going farther south. As big coffee and tea drinkers, we also appreciated having Om Cafe at the end of the block where we often enjoyed our morning drinks overlooking the ocean.

    The retractable walls were a dream. We loved putzing around the house in the mornings being able to enjoy the sunshine and plant life of the garden. The grill was a nice addition, and the bicycles were invaluable. We went everywhere along the Coast on our bicycles!

    As for Amelie, she was nothing but wonderful. Leading up to our stay, she was responsive, enthusiastic and helpful. She gave us many recommendations for activities in the area and got back to my inquiries right away. When we arrived, she picked us up at the bus station, and made sure we were given all the information we needed for our stay. We also arranged our horseback riding tour and massage through her company, Caribe Horse Riding School, and she was immensely kind and helpful the whole time. We hope to come back soon! When we do, we will most definitely reach out to Amelie again. And if the owner of the house ever decides he wants to sell, please let him know I am an interested buyer!

    Thank you!

  • This is SUCH a cute house! We shared it with some friends (4 of us total) and it was just perfect. We had the doors up anytime we were home. A very close walk to Cocles Beach. The internet worked great anytime we needed it. Would love to return someday!

    TIPS:
    1. If you have a car, buy a big jug of water instead of the smaller ones at the store. There are 2 jugs at the house. When one is empty, just take it to the store to trade it out for a full one. Saves some serious cash.

    2. If you're a yogi, I HIGHLY recommend OM Yoga at the beginning of the road near the house. Excellent classes.

    3. There are no towels available for beach use, but there are sarongs available that work great as a beach blanket. Just a heads up to bring some towels if you really want some. We found we didn't need towels and the sarongs worked great.

    Book this place. You'll love it!

  • Das Haus ist perfekt für eine kleine Familie, wie wir es sind. Der Weg zum Strand und in den Ort ist kurz, trotzdem hat man seine Ruhe und kein Partyalarm stört das Urlaubserlebnis.
    Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht, auch das Grundstück drumherum ist toll.
    Und Amelie ist toll, sehr herzlich und unkompliziert.
    Alles in allem ist es empfehlenswert!

  • We had a great experience all around! The house was exactly as described and very comfortable. Amelie was a gracious and helpful host. We arrived late at night so she stopped by first thing in the morning and offered advice on beaches, restaurants and other things to check out while we there. Loved it all and wish we could have stayed for several more weeks!
