Cabo Matapalo house description

Come live the Osa Penninsula experience at “El Tumbo de las Olas” (The sound of the waves), a private luxury lodge set on three acres where the ocean and rainforest meet in a stunning embrace. El Tumbo is a two story luxury home with a floor plan designed for communing with friends, family, and the natural world. The open walls and unique architectural fingerprint of the home invite the sounds and sights of the land to captivate and enchant guests.

The first floor features a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room, and a casual dining area in an open floor plan that lends perfectly to gathering, conversing, and relaxing. Also on the first floor is El Tumbo’s heart, “Bar Boa.” Bar Boa is an entirely custom built bar with enough luxurious charm to make every evening unforgettable. The bar itself is crafted from a solid piece of local Cedro wood carved along the wood’s natural curve into the shape of a lithe boa snake. The Bar Boa carvings are mirrored in the formal dining room decorated with hand carved representations of animals native to Cabo Matapalo.

The second story is where guests will retire to dream, nestled in high thread count luxury linens, of the wonders and romance of the Osa Peninsula. With two bedrooms, two master suites, a large open loft space, and three baths, the second floor of El Tumbo features luxury sleeping space that offers ample privacy and peace for each guest. Many of the beds (4 queens, 3 singles) rest in dramatic hand carved wood bedframes, and all are draped in unique soft mosquito netting. Each bedroom is equipped with a heavy duty fan to keep the tropical air flowing. The entire second floor is encircled in a deck on which guests can recline on a swinging hammock or Adirondack chairs to savor the stunning jungle lined ocean views, expansive gardens, lively wildlife, and mystic jungle from above.

While the interior of the home provides endless opportunities for luxuriating and pampering, it is the grounds and surrounding natural environment that make the El Tumbo experience magical, mystical, and oh so relaxing. There is a very special time of day, just at sunset, when the air becomes sweet and cools to the perfect temperature. El Tumbo features extensive outdoor lounge space that allows guests to sit and enjoy evenings, perhaps along with cocktails and good conversations, or in the silence of solitude. Hammocks throughout the property, a bbq area, the pool deck, and manicured gardens provide a variety of outside spaces perfect for natural reflection. Nearby hikes and jungle corridors invite fun animal encounters that could include walks to the beach with Blue Morpho butterflies fluttering about, and morning wake-up calls from the chatter of monkeys playing on nearby jungle vines. For those early risers the sunrise from the beach will bring a photo opportunity not to be missed.

El Tumbo de las Olas is not only a dream physical space, it is also an all-inclusive private resort experience. Felipe and Angelica, El Tumbo’s caretakers, utilize their expertise and educations in the hotel management, tourism, and culinary fields to make guests’ stays feel flawless and carefree. The care guests receive during their stay is far superior to the sterile, industrial experience offered by larger hotels and resorts. The personalized attention showered upon every guest is more like the love and care shared between great friends. From the first fresh-brewed cup of coffee in the morning, to the last, sweet spoonful of dessert in the evening, no detail is overlooked.

The spectacular food is reason enough to never leave El Tumbo. Felipe brings his culinary education to the kitchen and pairs it with Angelica’s rich home cooking legacy instilled by her mother and grandmothers before. They prepare every delectable meal with sensitivity to personal tastes and dietary needs, and make sure to add heaping portions of local flair. The El Tumbo dining experience is five star status, in the middle of the jungle, with two personal chefs who take pride in the art and flavor of great food. There is nothing else like it on earth! The owners of El Tumbo are restaurateurs and take pride in offering this fine cuisine.

Along with creating an atmosphere of serenity and peace, Felipe and Angelica will help arrange local flights, taxis, car rentals and tours. They perform all grocery shopping and are happy to meet any specific needs that may arise. Housekeeping is provided daily and laundry service can be arranged for an additional fee. The house also features a high speed internet connection. A small bungalow apart from the main estate is also available for rent.
