We only stayed here for 4 nights at the end of February but it was one of our favourite places in Costa Rica. The cottage had everything we needed including a kitchenette. It was great to watch the iguanas on the trees and in the grounds by our cottage.
The sunsets from the oceanside were spectacular. We found we were just content to sit on the beach and watch the birds and the waves. The woodpecker going to and forth from it's nest in the tree on the beach was a bonus. Diane kindly lent us beach towels and beach chairs to help us enjoy the wonderful beach. We did not swim as it was surf waves and rocks but there was a small area around the headland which became more tranquil at a certain stage of the tide. However, we did make good use of the lovely pool in the grounds which was nearly right in front of our cottage. So not far to go!
Richard was really helpful and gave us a lift to Dominical and back as we had no transport and getting a taxi proved impossible due to the festival at Uvita. We were really grateful for that. Another frequent guest also helped us out a couple of times with lifts which we really appreciated. I mustn't forget the owner of the supermarket on the main road towards Dominical who brought us back to Coconut Grove the first time we failed to get a taxi! The kindness of everyone was brilliant and much appreciated.
There was a coconut tree near our cottage and one morning a young man quickly climbed up the tree, which was amazing to see, and started cutting down the coconuts. The owner, Richard, regularly gets the coconuts cut down and we were treated to coconut milk straight from the tree.
A great place to enjoy a natural garden by the Pacific with friendly and helpful owners.
