The stars reflected like little lights in the smooth sheets of water that washed up on the beach in front of the house the evening we arrived. That is when I knew we were in for something special staying at Sand Dollar Cove. We were given exacting instructions on how to get there. The roads were easy to navigate and were in good condition, though the trek is not for the feint of heart. We wanted to get away from it all and enjoy time with family and friends in a setting ripe for adventure and SDC was the perfect fit for us. Our party included four adults and six children, four of whom were teenagers. We spent our days reading in the hammocks (great collection of books at the house - thanks!), sitting on the spacious porch overlooking the beach, boogie boarding, playing in the waves and riding the bike along the beach all the way to the estuary. In San Francisco de Coyote, we discovered a bakery and got to know the local grocer; he made us special drinks & helped us find food for all those teenagers. Pat (the manager) made sure we had all we needed and helped arrange to do a kayak trip through the mangroves. She had great recommendations for restaurants that were a short drive away. Cheo (the caretaker) brought us fresh eggs every morning, made pinto gallo & fresh tortillas for us, fried up fresh fish and made enough arroz con pollo that we actually had leftovers! (no small feat with a house full of teenagers) Cheo's son took the kids fishing one morning and Cheo made a bonfire for us on the beach. The howling monkeys woke us in the morning and we quickly adapted to the local habit of going to bed with the sun. By week's end, we felt like locals and could have stayed forever.
Playa San Miguel is a piece of paradise that is secluded but well worth the trek. We travelled with 6 adults and 7 children under 7 throughout Costa Rica and this was by consensus the best place we stayed. Travelling by private bus from Samara is a beautiful drive along the coastal mountains including a river crossing that everyone loved! (make sure if you have a rental vehicle and decide to cross the river you know where you are going and the tides). Patty the manager of the property will ensure you arrive safe and introduce you to Cheo the caretaker (farmer) and orientate you with the property. The property is a modern large 4 bedroom house directly on the beach. Upstairs are 2 large bedrooms both with bathrooms and the master bedroom has a soaker tub. Downstairs two more spacious bedrooms with a shared bathroom. There is a very modern kitchen and sitting area and out side overlooking the beach is the covered dinning area where we spent most of our time.There is an outdoor shower to wash away the tons of beach sand that you bring back with you. Two hammocks topped off the theme " off the beaten path in style" The beach itself was the best we saw on our trip with KM and KM of amazing sand and no people. There is one bar made out of an old shipping container on the beach which may sound bad but was actually very nice and the food was great. If you want fresh food Patty will arrange fresh fish off the boat wihich we did and it was fantastic! Cheo will also give you fresh eggs or chicken if you request it. There is not much to do here but to relax and enjoy the incredible beauty but a few attractions we did take advantage of were the Mike's butterfly farm and he is a charismatic, ,knowledgeable warm host, surfing with fellow Canadians Wild by Nature Adventures, This for us is the way Costa Rica should be visited and enjoyed, A word of warning if you travel here, it is not easy to get to but worth it and if you are relying on transportation other than your own do not pick the taxi out of here! You will not be disappointed if you pick this location and we hope to return!!
The stay at Sand Dollar Cove was exactly as it is advertised. Beautiful house where you spend the majority of your time bouncing from the porch to the beach. If you want to truly have a place where you spend more time conversing and spending time with your friends instead of on your phone this is it. IPat is amazing and will help you in any way possible to set up any adventure, find you food, make a store run, and recommend local businesses that are very friendly. You can order fresh fish and local meats. Cheo is very helpful and always around to assist you. Locals are friendly. Pizza Tree, Loco Coco, Cristal Azul are a few places I would recommend going to. The best day of the trip included a small tremor of an earthquake to wake you up, turtles hatching and making the ocean run, bonfire with fresh fish wrapped in banana leafs, and to end the night luminescence in the water. Thanks Jim, Pat, Bill, and Cheo for making our stay memorable and amazing. See you again!!
The first time I vacationed at Sand Dollar Cove was January 2009. If you don't want the waves to sing you to sleep or the howling of the monkeys to wake you up then this isn't the vacation for you. The house is gorgeous and sits at the end of an isolated beach. The crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean are a few small steps away. I loved every second I was there...the sunsets are breathtaking, the sunrises are worth getting out of bed to see, and if you are a nature buff....wow. The Ticos in the area are friendly and love it when you at least try to speak a little Spanish. And the food....yummy (I highly recommend Los Corrales). Paradise almost isn't enough to describe this place because it was so much more than that. I would highly recommend this spot if you were looking for a relaxing getaway from everything. Not only do I love this spot, I have returned 6 times since 2009.
Our stay is best described as a serene experience with a genuine calming day to day feeling. Our roller coaster feeling with life events transitioned to a peaceful and tranquil place. We enjoyed strolls on the secluded beach, views of gorgeous sunsets and relaxing naps in the hammocks. Chaos, the caretaker, and his family were very gracious and prepared scrumptious meals with fresh fruits and vegetables from the property. Two steps down from this fine dining on the terrace we gazed at a multitude of stars. We found favorite places to swim and sun. All the comforts and conveniences were available in the beachhouse. We enjoyed wonderful seafood at local restaurants, toured the butterfly farm (entertaining & educational) and experienced the full life cycle of sea turtles at a nearby beach (exhilarating)! Prior to arriving at Playa San Miguel we experienced a 26 zip lining attraction over 11 waterfalls in Miramar. We definitely plan to return in 2015. We can hardly wait! The listing was accurate, the property was clean and well kept, the owner provided excellent customer service and we have already recommended the property to our friends and family.
This house was our hidden paradise. We stayed there for 10 days and it seemed like forever! I can still smell and hear the ocean.
The house is located directly on the beach! The view from the balcony and patio is amazing. A few steps and you can dive into the ocean, jump with the waves or have a never ending walk on the beach! During our stay, it was a little bit like our private beach, as there were almost no one else. Even in the high season, Playa San Miguel must be a very quiet and relaxing place. Having a car is necessary in my opinion. You can reach San Francisco de Coyote easily then - there you get everything you need (e.g. supermarket, over there, take a rest at Heikes Cafe Sante and have dinner at the Restaurant Loma Clara).
Everything was 100% clean, well equipped - there is nothing you would wish for in addition to what you get! We had the pleasure to use the brand new barbecue for the first time! Thanks Cheo, who ís the house keeper, for the excellent fresh fish and chicken and of course everything else.
Pat is taking warm care for the guests - thank you dear Pat for guiding us to Sand Dollar Cove from Playa Naranjo, making all the arrangements for us, your reccomendations and just for spending some time with you!
Some genearal aspects: We were only two people but the house fits very well for families or bigger groups as there are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, so privacy is guaranteed. Furniture, amenities, equipment with very good style and high standard.
We took the Ferry to Playa Naranjo and drove to Playa San Miguel. More convenient may be to fly to Punta Islita and hire a car from there.
Our favorites; Heikes Cafe Sante for Sandwiches, Smoothies, cakes and every day another sweet surprise; Loma Clara Restaurant; Tanga´s in Punta Coyote, Casa Caletas - beautiful sunset!
Activities: Walking on the beach, swimming, relaxing, reading, paddle on the Rio Jabillo, hiking to the waterfalls, eating fresh fish... and much more! Pat provides all information, maps, etc you need!
We can highly recommend this place - we already did to our friends!
Thanks for this unforgettable stay!
Best wishes from Germany,
