Sierpe villa description
Charming, colorful, fully furnished two-bedroom, two-bathroom modern villa located on riverfront property with private boat dock. This is Costa Rica at its most stunning and diverse, as it was 20 years ago, yet with all the features and comforts of home!
This is the place for an authentic Costa Rican adventure! Perfect for families, nature lovers, explorers and fishermen. See gorgeous wildlife from your front balcony and on trips along the river – scarlet macaws, toucans, spider and howler monkeys, sloths and other incredible species.
The sea is about 30 minutes away by boat. Bass, snook, red snapper, tuna, sailfish and marlin are just a few of the fish you can find, and reasonably priced guides are located in Sierpe village, less than 10 minutes from the house. Your guide can arrange for your catch to be freshly cooked at one of the local open-air restaurants overlooking the river.
Corcovado National Park, one of the most diverse biological corridors in the world, is just a boat ride away. Corcovado is known for its dolphin and whale populations. Cano Island, Drake’s Bay and the Osa peninsula offer stunning snorkeling, diving, and swimming on pristine beaches, as well as guided nature walks for all ages and abilities. Panama is just an hour south on good roads. Sierpe town is not overpopulated with tourists and has retained a safe, friendly atmosphere not often found in the big resort towns.
This is a tropical paradise in a tranquil, scenic location!

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings
Lovely house in beautiful surroundings
We are a family of five with three children, 14, 12 and 7 years old, who stayed in this house for 9 days in june 2013. The house was the best house we stayed in during our 38-days vacation in Costa Rica: It was very clean and easy to keep clean, there were no mosquitos in the house because it is on the second floor (above mosquito-level) and because all the windows have mosquito nets, a very important factor for your well being. The beds were so nice (even with the 7-year old in the middle), the kitchen was well equiped (I baked bread several mornings, which was impossible elsewhere), it was a relief to be able to put on the aircondition once in a while and the two bathrooms were a big 'help' in the mornings. There is a lovely balcon where you can sit and enjoy both the beautiful view and the sounds of the animals and below the house there is both a washing machine and a dryer wich also is a big help when you are a family. The garden is a very big plus to the house. It is beautiful and our kids went out every morning to look for animals. They found scarlett macaws, big and small iguanas, raccoons, big blue and red crabs and in the river we saw crocodiles (not near the house though, but the neighbour had one on his bank one day!). Having the river so close to the house was really a speciel experience. Sometimes in the mornings two of the kids and I went down to sit on the little pontoon bridge to read or just to enjoy the incredible beautiful sights. We went for a tourist boatride and the river is very varied and lovely to go down by and it would have been nice if there was a boat or a kayak in the house for the guests. But the owner have told me that there will be, so it will be perfect for the next guests. The house, the garden and the river are beautiful and really nice, but there isn't much to do in the area if you don't want to spend a fortune on tourist tours (we found them very expensive compared to the east coast). But if you go for rides in your car, all the area have scenic views. You can also go by car to the isle of Osa, on the east side, and it is so pretty. We left the main road a couple of times and the nature is impressive and varies a lot. We also slept one night in Puerto Jiménez because we wanted to take a tour to Cabo Matapalo and both the beach and the tour (with Everyday Adventure) was just incredible. If Costa Rica wasn't so far away (we live in Denmark), we would come back soon and we would stay in this lovely house again.

About: Steve and Barbara live in North Carolina but wanted to spend several months a year in Costa Rica. After looking at locations up and down the coast, they chose Sierpe for its friendly atmosphere, stunning wildlife, great fishing, and proximity to some of the most pristine ecological areas on the planet.
You will find all the comforts of home, and our property manager, Shani, will meet you when you arrive, get you settled, and make sure you know about all the natural wonders and amazing attractions of this exquisite area. If you want to just relax, you can view wildlife right from the balcony! Very comfortable, colorful and tastefully furnished casa.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The biological diversity of the area is world famous, whether you want nature walks, boat trips or snorkeling/diving. Fabulous fishing too. The property is furnished with Costa Rican art - colorful and homelike! The views from the balcony over the river, with scarlet macaws overhead and toucans in the trees, are unmatched!
