Property description

BETWEEN DOMINICAL AND THE OSA PENINSULA! Enjoy Costa Rican coffee while watching toucans, parrots and even squirrel monkeys. In fact, we have recently changed the name to Casa del Mono Titi since we frequently see these little monkeys climbing and jumping through the trees adjacent to the house. The villa is located on the Pacific coast in southwest Costa Rica on a mountainside with a spectacular view of Cano island and the Osa Peninsula. Several beaches are nearby, including those at Marina Ballena National Park. The Osa Peninsula, one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, is close enough for a day trip.
Although the bedrooms are air conditioned, you may not need it. Since the 1000 foot elevation is cooler than sea level, the ceiling fans in every room and outside are usually sufficient for comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a gas grill; however, if you don't feel like cooking several excellent restaurants are an easy drive. We'll be glad to let you know a few of our favorites.

There are numerous activities available nearby. Cano Island is famous for diving and snorkling. You can arrange zip-line canopy tours, whale watching, kayaking, horseback riding, 4-wheeling, birding, and numerous other activities and tours. A day trip to Coronado National Park is possible, and Manuel Antonio, the most visited national park in the country, is an hour and a half away. Boruca, a village named after the indigenous people who live there, is about an hour drive away. Crafts, such as the masks and woven purses and backpacks that you will see in many shops in CR can be purchased from the artists in the village.

If there are any problems at the house, we have local managers who can set things right for you. They can also help you rent a car or arrange any of the above activities for you. If you would like cleaning services during your stay, they can arrange this as well.

The villa is a few kms south of Ojochal near the village of Coronado. It is 3 km from the Costanera Highway, accessible by 4x4. (A 4X4 vehicle is necessary!!) It is a 4 1/2-5 hour drive from San Jose through the Sierra de la Muerte, a beautiful mountain range; a 3 1/2-4 hour drive via the new highway and the coastal highway; or a 40 minute flight to a local airport in Palmar Sur.
I don't know why the new 'green season' rates are not visible. Green season is April 16-Dec 14. The rate is $1000 per week.
