We had a fantastic time staying in Coco's place. We initially had some trouble finding it as it is nicely tucked away and private, but Coco sent his brother to retrieve us from a well known landmark. The accommodation itself is beautifully crafted by Coco himself and comfortable and private with big fridge, coffee maker and very fast and reliable internet. Coco gave us good recommendations of where to go for drinks and dinner, and Playa Negra is a beautiful beach with low tourist development. Sadly we only were able to stay one night, as the house was booked for weeks, but we feel lucky to have been able to spend the one night getting to know Coco. Thanks Coco!
Super Nice staying at cocos place. He is a really cool guy. The house is perfect for a group of friends pr a small family. If you Like to surf a righthander go book it!
We arrived to a super laid back space and were greeted by Coco and his dog Pisco. He showed us around and we headed off for dinner. The space is exactly as described and was clean and ready for our arrival. We will be coming back for a stay on our way north. Thanks Coco!
This place was amazing. Coco built it himself from the ground up and definitely put his personal touch into it. Aside from being a skilled carpenter/builder he is a very nice guy who I instantly liked. It made the transition in Playa Negro easy and without incident.
Staying here was a very authentic Costa Rican experience, which for me is the entire reason I use Airbnb.
The place is in a safe, beautiful rural area within a very short walk to the beach. The beach is perfect for surfing and very lightly occupied. You are surrounded by all sorts of wildlife, like monkeys, all sorts of varieties of birds and various lizards, which you will see from your front porch if not from your bedroom window.
Also, as I work remotely it is very important for me to have a reliable Internet connection. I never had any problems with the Internet and was very pleased with this aspect of my stay, as it is integral for me to make a living.
Also, there are tons of expats here. I don’t speak Spanish well and this was never an issue. People are very open and easy to interact with when asking for advice or for when looking for friends.
Lastly, Coco took care of all of our needs, from loaning me his surf board daily to having his friend catch us fresh fish to cook in his backyard wood burning oven, he taught us what we needed to know, where to go, what to eat and there were definitely irie vibes at the end of the day… He was a perfect host who I hope to see again.
Overall we had a fantastic time and despite many visits to Costa Rica I felt this was a very unique one certainly worth replicating.
Book it now, you wont regret it.
Had an amazing experience in Playa Negra at Coco's place. He was an excellent host, and made our stay everything we'd hoped it would be. Plenty of space, close to the beach, and hot showers! Can't ask for much more. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone travelling to Playa Negra. Thanks again!
Coco is the man! He was super accommodating, helpful and fun! Not only did he help us with local tips but hooked us up with a local car rental. Be sure to ask about his friend, "Red," if looking for a ride. Better than getting scammed from airport car rental places.
The town Playa Negra is great and ideal for anyone looking for a chilled out vibe without the tourism you find elsewhere and a small yet, awesome surf community. Be sure to stop by Playa Negra Hotel for some sweet tropical drinks and great surf, all about 10 minutes from Coco's Cabina.
Coco's place was great. Very comfortable and calm. There a lot of iguanas running around and all of the restaurants we went to were great and friendly. Coco was laid back and great company. The beach was near by and it made me wish I was a surfer. Coco is a carpenter and made all of the furniture inthe house too. Stay here.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay with Coco. He made us feel very welcome and was always ready to help whenever we needed some guidance. The place was very simple and tidy and had all the necessities. The neighborhood was very relaxed and quiet (most of the time). There are a handful of local restaurants with great menus too. Try the Tuna Tartare in Cafe Playa Negra!
This destination is ideal for someone looking to surf and take it easy, but there are tours available if you're looking to liven things up a bit. It's definitely a rural destination and you should read up on everything that entails when travelling to a Latin American country ;)
We spent 7 days at Surfers Dream Cabine at Coco´s and we would love to stay for another couple of weeks - it is really a dream! The cabine is spacious and airy and very private and safe. It is clean and well equipted. Coco took very good care of us, anything we needed, anything we had to know, he helped us immediately. He organized save transportations, has all informations and connections for beaches, surf and shopping. My boys and I liked very much to be around him. He enriched us with his fun and intelligence. Thank you very much for letting us feel from the first minute on at home in your cabine!
Pura Vida - siempre!
Coco was an excellent host and always more than happy to help with anything (the whole month we stayed). His guest house was very comfortable and I especially liked waking up in the loft bedroom amongst the trees. Coco is a great guy and I plan to keep in touch with him as I start my move to this beautiful country. Stay here!
