We spent four nights in mid-Nov and already miss sleeping in our private bungalow listening to the surf and drinking wine on the balcony with a view of the ocean and beautiful gardens. Debbie and Jimmy are perfect hosts- very informative and helpful information on specialized tours, restaurants with different types of food, where to get groceries, even how to... More

The veranda is big and covered, offering lovely ocean views and sea breezes. Jimmy & Debbie are the perfect hosts; they are happy to provide information and help without invading... More

My husband and I honeymooned at Mother Dear at the end of August. It was absolutely perfect. Neither of us had ever been to Costa Rica before and we made our decision of where to go and where to stay based on this site. We originally wanted to stay at Banana Azul down the road but ultimately decided that a... More

We spent 2 weeks at Mother Dear in October 2012. It was perfect! The cabins are beautiful, spacious and fully equipped with everything you could possible need and want. The veranda is huge and we lived on it for most of the time. Unlike other holidays where you might go out every night we found ourselves keen to get back... More

The hosts were very sweet and welcoming. We stayed over New Years and were invited to spent NYE with the hosts and their friends. Waking up to the ocean right outside our door was amazing, and there was a horse in the yard New Years morning! The cottage had a wonderful feeling to it and we had everything we needed... More

Very comfortable with nice, hot shower and the view... well, what can I say about the view that has not been said? We determined pretty quickly we would forego some of our... More

As stated in all of the previous reviews, the cottage was perfect in every way, the view was incredible, the owners were helpful, and the town was vibrant and fun!! Our advice is to keep your time open while you are there because if... More

Not sure what else I can add to the review list. The past reviews pretty much tells all. Beautifull, extremely clean, private, safe, close to town, love falling asleep and waking up to the sound of crashing waves, views of the beach and ocean, enjoyed walking on the beach first thing in the morning and the beach in front of...

We had a great time at the mother dear cottages. The hosts were helpful and informative without being intrusive and the positioning on the beach could not have been better. We would recommend this to anyone seeking a beach front getaway.

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
