Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Limón Province - Mother Dear Ocean Cottages

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If you came for the beach…

Why not stay on the beach ?

Two striking hand-crafted cottages built of beautiful tropical hardwoods, by the sea on Playa Negra in Puerto Viejo.

Designed for maximum air circulation, the unit is elevated, cooled by ocean breezes during the day and mountain back drafts at night.

The open-floor plan is simple and practical: fully-equipped kitchen with basic appliances (including a large refrigerator), king-size bed, large bathroom with lovely tile and glass block shower, and a 200 square-foot porch ( essentially an outdoor living room) looking out across a tropical garden to the beach.

Planned for rest, relaxation, and renewal, accommodations are intended for two people who wish privacy.

Hardwood floors, open ceilings, and custom furniture are at the core of the cottage.

Awakening to both beach music and forest sounds, you will likewise find yourself surrounded by the natural beauty that is Costa Rica.

Puerto Viejo is both funky and cosmopolitan (43 nationalities at last count), with charms all its own. When you feel like venturing away from your peaceful home base, you will find a myriad of activities available within short distances of “Mother Dear”.

With its unspoiled nature, the beach at Playa Negra is reminiscent of the 1970’s: don’t be surprised if you sometimes see more wild horses than people out enjoying the salt air!

If you are still a traveler rather than a tourist, yet are now welcoming a few more creature comforts when you venture away from home, then “Mother Dear” might be just the place for you.

But wherever you decide to stay:

Come to Puerto Viejo!!!

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!

  • 5 of 5

If we were to build our own house on the beach in the comfort and style that make life most simple and enjoyable this would be the place we would call home. Mother Dear was the perfect place to spend a week and totally unwind. Listening to the pounding surf, watching the wild horses graze in the front yard and hearing the wild birds made for the perfect experience. The house was beautifully appointed, glistened from top to bottom and just made our stay in Pto Viejo perfect. The location to the beach, the distance to town and incredible fusion food that we got to enjoy guarantees that we will return one day soon to this magical place. And if this wasn't good enough, our hosts exceeded our wildest expectations by their friendliness, helpfulness and kindness. We have already recommended Mother Dear to ALL of our friends and have plans to return very soon.

Wish we were still there!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property are wonderful hosts who helped us coordinate with local companies for river trips and transportation. When we got there, we were stunned by the beauty of the casita and the surrounding grounds. Being able to hang in my hammock from our deck, look at the ocean and read, during a rainy day, was exquisite. And with a walk on the black sand beach to town, it was easy to get around without renting a car. I kept thinking of all my friends who I recommend this site to stay at. Muy tranquilo,
