This place is exactly as pictured and described. If you love to be by the ocean and fall asleep to the sounds of the waves, you will love it. The food that was prepared for us was delicious. We took the airport shuttle the host is offering, it was convenient. Fritz, the local host, took very well care of us. We rented a motorcycle for the duration of our stay and loved it.
"The ocean is like 6 steps from your room. It's so peaceful especially at night."
First of all I have to say how amazing Frantz is. From the airport pick up to my whole stay in Haiti he made sure I was comfortable and well taken care of. I'm so thankful for him! (I'm a woman and I traveled alone) He speaks great English and is very very fun and friendly! Staying here was so relaxing. The ocean is like 6 steps from your room. It's so peaceful especially at night. I even caught the sunrisung and going down BEAUTIFUL! Just thinking about it all is making me want to come back. Thank you for the wonderful experience of Haiti I will be back and with friends!
I could not ask for a better host.
I have never seen a more beautiful sunset the sound of the Caribbean was breathtaking And my host Frantz showed me around and made me feel comfortable and wanted A+

Staying at cBreeze was truly amazing. Felt like we were in paradise! The location is truly amazing, you can't be in a bad mood there! Perfect place for a beach getaway, a little far from the city, but there's still plenty to do. If you are looking for a play to just lounge, read, relax, and enjoy some delicious food this is the place for you! Our host was so wonderful, helped us find a boat to explore the coast out on the beautiful ocean, was very accommodating and helpful the entire time. It's nice and quiet, you feel very safe, and like you're at your very own vacation home. It's very hard to leave! Really cannot say enough good things about cBreeze, we plan on staying here every time we go to Jacmel. Strongly suggest it!

This place is such a gem!! Cozy and very clean accommodations. The view is breathtaking and the breeze is so refreshing. This is not one of your fancy hotels but the perfect, affordable, safe and comfortable place to stay. Electricity and plumbing 24/7 and very well run. The food is excellent as well.

Franz was an amazing host, he is knowledgable, speaks perfect English, and went out of his way to make my trip comfortable, I was in Haiti for work and dealing with some physical issues but he went out of his way to find me a massage therapist to get me through the trip, and dropped me off at my next location in Jacmel. The location is private, secure, in an amazingly beautiful location, well-kept and immaculate and simple. As in most of Haiti, wifi is intermittent. I woke up to the sounds of the waves breaking against the rocks, and the blue green Caribbean sea. I highly recommend Sea Breeze, and hopefully will return.

One-Value- Happy to say...It's real. The photos you see are actual photos of the rental and nearby beaches. Clean, running water, electricity, lovely grounds, oceanside, sandy beach nearby, free wifi, items you forgot or didn't know you'd need are available for purchase/rent. It's the least expensive hotel/vacation

We had a wonderful time in Coterelle Breeze. Frantz helped us with transport, information and tips. The internett was very good, no problem ordering plane tickets or steaming movies! The place has a good atmosphere.

This place was more than we expected. The host was great and helpful in explaining to us where it was, how to get there and how to get around. The property was paradise on earth, with the ocean view, the sunset and sunrise, delicious foods.

Best internet speed in all of Haiti. GREAT food at a very reasonable price. Fantastic coffee. Amazing communication. Helpful and wonderfully friendly hosts (both Djeno in NYC and Franz in Jacmel). We would love to go back again. Beach is not sandy but it is CLEAN and the view is great as well. Very nice staff members. Safe place to park your car. Only one drawback: no hot shower. Hope by the time we return with 15 people in November we can have hot shower. PLEASE.

My friends and I didn't expect this property to be as breathtaking and picturesque as it ended up being. We stayed for 7 nights and Frantz (the host) was more than accommodating. He picked us up upon our arrival at the PAP airport and drove us 2 1/2 hours to his place.

It's great place with an amazing view. The sun sets right on the ocean. The food was fantastic, and Kacoute was always helpful. Would definitely stay there again when I visit Jacmel.

We had a group of five occupy all 3 cabins. Franz and his attentive staff made sure our mini vacation was perfect. The food was good and the service was excellent. I<t> was a safe beautiful place right on the ocean. We will go back again.

Coterelle Breeze is a gorgeous guesthouse on a small property right next to the ocean on a rocky beach. This is the most "on the water" you can possibly be. The bed was the most comfortable we slept in during our two weeks in Haiti and the large window opened up to a breathtaking view of the sea, palm trees, and the night sky. Though the weather is very warm in Jacmel, the light sea breeze and efficient fan allowed us to sleep comfortably (and without mosquito bites!). 24-hr electricity, wow!
...The property is just as described, and the food was great. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this property!
Our host, Frantz, was a complete angel. He made sure we were taken care of, and organized tours for us. He provided great insight and was such a lovely person. The property is just as described, and the food was great. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this property!

Excellent! Owner is a wonderful host and makes everyone feel they are home.
...so close to the water the sound of the waves puts you to sleep...
If you are looking for a rustic getaway this is it! The rooms are very pleasant, the beds are comfortable and they are so close to the water the sound of the waves puts you to sleep. We left our windows open at night and the breezes kept us cool. The hammocks and common areas were very comfortable. The staff were really helpful and accommodating, the food was slow, but very good.
...The staff was helpful, and the room was clean...
The location of Coterelle Breeze is wonderful. It's right on the water (but has no beach access), but the crashing waves provided great ambiance. The staff was helpful, and the room was clean. I had the griot pork for dinner, and it was quite good. Order well ahead of when you think you'll be hungry (1-hr plus). Bring your own potable water for convenience and tooth brushing. CB is an excellent facility to unplug and get a taste of Haiti at its best.
I just can't say enough how relaxing and comfortable my stay was here.
I just can't say enough how relaxing and comfortable my stay was here. From the sounds of the ocean waves that quickly lulled me to sleep within a couple hours upon arrival to Frantz's great hospitality, this is truly a Jacmel gem! Frantz goes out of his way to make sure guests are satisfied. Like other guests have said and I must repeat- I'll be back:)

Coterelle Breeze was a perfect spot for our 5 days in the Jacmel area. The studio is totally private with Wall-to-wall windows directly over the ocean. The shared spaces are relaxing and beautiful and the staff is friendly, helpful, and always available. Franz was a joy and answered all of our questions and made us feel welcome and comfortable during our first trip to Haiti. He even had fresh lobsters caught for my birthday and surprised me with a delicious cake that evening! The location is 5 minutes from a nice beach and about a half hour from the city of Jacmel. I would definitely recommend staying here!
A true home away from home. ❤️
These guys know their stuff. They are very accommodating, easy to communicate with and get local advice. A true home away from home. ❤️
The studio was spacious and comfortable - the views breathtaking...
From booking to the airport drop off, the communication and hospitality was outstanding. Djeno was so responsive, courteous, and helpful.
...Frantz was helpful with everything we needed and a gracious host.
Stayed here over Christmas 2017. Great place to stay at. Has only basic amenities, but that was all we needed to enjoy our time there. We ate dinner here ever night and it was delicious. Frantz was helpful with everything we needed and a gracious host.
They were great at accommodating a (celiac level) gluten-free diet!
Great place! It is as beautiful as it appears in the pictures (or more!). They were great at accommodating a (celiac level) gluten-free diet! Djeno and Frantz were very helpful and communicating with them was easy. Their guide book is extremely thorough. Despite being next to the road, noise was very minimal, especially over the beautiful sound of the waves! The consistent electricity was really appreciated. I could never tire of those sunsets over the ocean from our private balcony!
