Cabo Matapalo cabin description

Casita Tranquila is located on the Osa Peninsula on the South Pacific coast side of Costa Rica.
The Osa contains five per cent of the worlds plant and animal species.
The Casita is in a shady tropical forest and a one minute walk to a secluded beach.
We have many species of tropical trees and plants including banana, mango, papaya, avocado, guanabana, orchids and much more.
Wildlife includes, howler monkeys, white face, squirrel monkeys, sloths, birds include scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, parrots, tanagers.
The casita has a living room with kitchen and bar, bedroom one has a queen bedroom, bedroom two has a double bed and a single bunk bed, for a total of five guests.
The kitchen has a three ring gas stovetop, ceramic countertop and bar top, all cooking untensils, an ice chest for perishables. Please not we are off the grid and the Casita does not have electricity, repeat no electricity.
lighting is by candles and rechargable lanterns, although its best to use just the candles as bugs are attracted to white lights.
The Casita is screened and we have nets over the beds but certains times of the months a few manage to get in.
Hot shower, sink, and toilet are set in a tropical garden outside the bedrooms.
Living room has a large sofa, dinner table and bar.
There is a deck with chairs in front of the living room to relax and enjoy the ocean view and wildlife.
There are no phone booths here so suggest bringing a unlocked phone with you and buy a sim card at the international airport from the 'kolbi phone desk' as you pick up your luggage and before entering customs, the card is rechargable.
The Casita is 60 yards from our neighbors who stay there December through March, sometimes they have student groups who you may hear at times, we have no control over jungle noises or people in the distance,or loud ocean waves so please come with an open mind.
