First, the good:
The house itself is lovely. The views are fantastic, the pool a delight. Beds are comfortable, and the showers are wonderful. There is one bar/restaurant, as well as the beach within a reasonable walk (5-10 minutes, though very hilly), along with a pace where you can book water tours (snorkeling, fishing, etc.). We didn't lack for basics in the kitchen, and basic toiletries/linens were provided.
The owner was very responsive when we had questions, and we really enjoyed our stay.
The house, especially the kitchen, is actually quite small, with little common area (though the outdoor area is VERY usable). The fourth bedroom is quite small, and lacks air conditioning, so sleeping with the door closed in that room is not really feasible. The water went out at least twice while we were there, albeit for 20 minutes or less. Also, while towels were provided, there were not enough for every person to have two- one for the pool and one for the shower. And yes, they did know how many of us were coming.
These complains are minor, and are only relayed to provide complete information to would- be renters. Overall, the home was lovely, and I would absolutely consider staying there again if I came back to the Coco/Ocotal area. Tip: A car would be extremely helpful. There isn't much in Ocotal, and Coco would be a long walk.

Breathtaking views, excellent location and unusually good build quality for Costa Rica.
Please is brand new and well worth the money, we absolutely loved it.
The only regret is that we had to leave.
