This is pure gold! Seriously, this place is perfect, and Rachel and Adam are totally great hosts.
The beach is 40 feet away from the wrap around porch. You have a good sized room and a private bathroom. Everything is tiled and clean. They do a heroic job sweeping the sand away multiple times a day, but since you're right on the beach you end up loosing the battle with sand, and salt, and sun, and (at night) crabs.... but who cares???
You are sleeping to the sound of waves, waking up to walk on a very sparsely populated beach (it might as well be private), and the sunsets are spectacular. There's a turtle hatchery a short walk down the beach. There's a troop of monkeys which visit every few days (twice in our week there) and a mother sloth, with baby, was in the neighbor's tree. We took a kayak tour of mangroves, we took horseback rides on the beach, we heard about rafting, and waterfalls, and several other activities. We took day trips to nearby Uvita, Dominical, Quepos, and Manuel Antonio. They were all great, but it may be that we were happiest right at Dos Palmas, on Playa Matapalo.
We picked this place after a fair amount of searching in the area of Manuel Antonio National Park, but we weren't exactly sure what we'd find. We found something that suited us perfectly. Not luxury, not fancy, not touristy, not run-down... a great mix of comfortable, clean, convenient, affordable, attractive, and right-on-the-beach.
I highly recommend this place. I also highly recommend Adam and Rachel, they provided a great fruit and eggs breakfast, they helped us book several tours, and recommended places to go or eat. They were very friendly, and obviously cool people.
