  • Fantastic Vacation an Amazing Location

    "Just got back from our vacation from Costa Rica. We had an incredibly relaxing time, the location is amazing and the staff are incredibly helpful. Much that to Javier and his gracious assistance with everything from picking us up at the airport, and arranging anything we needed during our stay.. We will be back!"

  • Pilon Perfect

    "We were greeted in Golfito by an exceptionally accomodating and affable caretaker, Scott. The views from the house are spectacular. We wanted for absolutely nothing as Scott treated us like his own. If you are in the Pavones area and don't stay here, you are missing out. We are looking forward to getting back for more adventuring as soon as possible. Thank you again Scott! Kindest Regards, Thomas Berry"

  • Loved every minute

    "My dream came true - always wanted to visit Costa Rica and for my 40th my husband arranged everything. We spent 2 weeks in paradise. Our first week was by the Arenal volcano then to the beach area of Mal Pais. We spent 6 nights in this beautiful house - the house and property was just breathtaking. We absolutely enjoyed staying there, the property was so lush with tropical plants and so many trees - I am not a "pool" person, but the saltwater pool surrounded by the palm trees changed my way of thinking! We loved how the whole house could be opened up to feel the breezes, view the scenery and hear the wildlife (could hear some howler monkeys and saw them 3 times). The area was perfect for us, not too close and not too far from anything. The beach is about a 5 minute drive, there are great restaurants and 2 nights we used the the grill to cook fish we caught, and we even had breakfast 3 of the mornings at the house - grocery stores close by and the kitchen had everything we needed. One of my favorite parts of the trip and what I will truly miss is how beautiful the night sky is there. Stargazing there is amazing, especially from the 3rd floor open balcony on those unique hanging beds! For me this trip was a dream come true and this house, area, people did not disappoint. Also, have to mention that Jose the caretaker was so pleasant and helpful, we were unfortunately were a little late on arrival and he was so gracious about that."

  • A Month In Paradise!

    "We chose Casa Mono Titi for a month long stay and were not disappointed. Everything was great from the amenities of the house to the fabulous wide open view. The house is located 10+ mins south of Ojochal. There are 2 variety stores, a restaurant and an excellent meat market in Coronada where you turn off to take the 8 minute steep, scenic drive to the house. Our grocery shopping was mostly done at the BM supermarkets in Uvita about 20 mins north but discovered we could drive same distance south to the Palmar Norte BM supermarket; prices and selection were a bit better. I suggest buying duty free liquor/wine at the SJO airport as prices are cheaper. Most of our fruits and veg were bought at the Saturday market in Uvita or at roadside stands. The house has a charcoal BBQ with a neat gimmick to get the charcoal going. Try the smoked pork chops (chuletas de cerdo ahumadas) from the Carniceria (butcher shop in Coronada); their meat is excellent, their English is not! Restaurants we enjoyed were the Boca Coronada and the Tilapia Farm (2nd one) on the way to Ojochal as well as Exotica, Citrus, Mama y Papas, Ylang Ylang, all excellent choices in Ojochal. Fabrizio's has fabulous pizza and pasta (the gnocchi was delish)-small seating area but they offer take-out. If going to Dominical, try Por-Que-No restaurant then check out their small beach. Our days started at 5:30 to in order catch the best of the bird and wildlife action. The Mono Titi monkeys were frequent visitors in the large trees; watch for branch movement as they can be hard to spot. That's what we loved most about "living" here, every day provided a new amazing nature experience. Remember you are in the jungle so expect surprises! The Corcovada day trip was excellent; be sure to take backpack with water, snack, binoculars, camera and water shoes (not flip flops) as you get on/off the boat in the water. Expect 4 hours of hiking in the jungle; you will need closed walking shoes or, if has been very wet, boots would be best. The Osa Ziplining was OK (Arenal ziplining is better); not sure their rope bridge is safe! The house has well-stocked kitchen, A/C in bdrms, lots of dvds, books and bird guides, many comfy and shaded outdoor seating choices and a refreshing pool w outdoor shower. Denise, the property manager and David, our pool guy were wonderful. We learned so much from both of them, which made our stay here an experience we will never forget. Thank you Karen and Mario for sharing your lovely casa!"
