My husband and I had attempted to stay at Mother Dear Ocean Cottages two years running, and each time they were sold out. However this time we got extremely lucky when a guest could not extend their stay as initially planned. Yay for us! We arrived a bit early on the day of my birthday, and Jimmy and his sweet...

My husband and I spent 9 days at Mother Dear in April. Yes, everything has been said here already, but I wanted to just let everyone know that it is all true and it is just lovely. The cottage itself is perfect – the king bed the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in, the kitchenette clean, modern, the fridge large,...

Just returned from the P.V. region after 3 weeks of beating around from Cahuita to Manzanillo. Mother Dear was last of 4 places we laid our heads (for a week) and we couldn't be happier that we chose it to finish our trip. It was our first time to that region, so after lots of research we hoped we had...

Mother Dear exceeded our expectations. Our five-day romantic getaway was idyllic. The proximity of the beautiful cabins to the beach combined with the scenic views from our balcony hammocks made us never want to leave, so much so that we often chose to cook our own meals there, foregoing the many excellent restaurants just minutes away. We spent much of...

This is our second stay at Mother Dear in less than 6 months. Our first stay was so perfect that we couldn't wait to come back. We stayed 8 glorious nights in the most comfy king bed, falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves right outside our door. You don't even need to leave the bed to see the...

We loved the four days that we spent at Mother Dear, and had there been additional availability for our dates on the Caribbean coast, we would have happily stayed longer. Having our own completely equipped beach cottage that opened up to the sound of rolling surf and birdsong was exactly what we were looking for. It felt like the summer...

As previous reviewers have detailed, this property is outstanding. The owners, Jimmy and Debbie, are very, very nice. The cottage is beautiful, has everything you need. Big, comfortable bed. Beautiful bathroom. The deck is fantastic with an amazing view overlooking the beach. Love that you can hear the waves crashing 24/7. While it's not the most beautiful beach in the...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February,2015. What a pleasure! Debbie and Jim were the perfect hosts, Only there to help when we asked. We loved walking on the beach and swimming in the waves. It is enough removed from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Viejo but close enough to enjoy the night life if...

Jimmy and Debbie are beautiful people and attentive and respectful hosts. The cottage was dreamy and comfortable. You need to stay for more than a few days, as the longer you are there, the more relaxed you become and the more fun places you can explore. Costa Rica's very best of everything can be found right there!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two hand-crafted hardwood cottages by the sea. Built for maximum air circulation, the cottages are elevated, cooled by ocean breezes during the day and mountain backdrafts at night. Beach music and forest sounds help you rest, relax, and renew. Beautiful hardwood floors and custom furniture make for a warm and cozy nest. Looking out above the beach from your porch, listening to the sound of the crashing waves, life is good! ... more   less

“Both cabins are identical - no one is better than another. Both have the same amenities and same gorgeous view.”
