  • Magical place, magical people

    "We loved "Tres Palmas"! The wildlife around the property was as good as it gets. The villa offers every configuration of beds/rooms a large group could ask for. The caretakers not only cooked wonderful meals for our group, but they helped us organize some guided hikes and dinners in the neighborhood. Since we were deep in the middle of nowhere, having this kind of help was very useful. We liked the hike through the rainforest down to the beach everyday, and especially enjoyed "pan dulce" beach for its beauty and great community feel. We are still dreaming about our great adventure to this magical place, and planning to come back."

  • No closer place to heaven than this!

    "We spent 9 days here with our 7- and 10-year-old daughters and my 73-year-old mother, and everyone had the time of their lives. First of all, the house was amazing. The space was set up so well to give everyone their own space, and still feel so open to the surrounding wonders. We were easily able to close up the house when the rain got extreme, and open it back up to rejoin the jungle whenever we wanted. The grounds surrounding the house were a dream. Front yard is jungle, backyard is beach. The tide pools just up the beach kept us busy at low tide for 2 straight days, while we wandered around and checked out all the life down there. We made several trips down to Playa Pan Dulce to swim in the warm water and to let our girls boogie board. The hike to the King Louie waterfall was leisurely and beautiful, and my girls will remember swimming at the base of that fall forever. Coming back during drizzles to dip in the pool and sip cocktails was wonderful! I could never have imagined how plentiful the wildlife would be. We saw several kinds of monkey every day right around the house, often watching the Capuchins right on the ground as they foraged within feet of us. Amazing birds were everywhere, with toucans and macaws turning up regularly. We loved Matapalo so much and found so much to do there that we only ventured out twice – once for a zip-line adventure and once to get out on Golfo Dulce. We did Bosque Mar for the zip-lining, and they were really great – 2 very personable and informative guides and a great experience, even for my 73-year-old mother. The Dolphin and Snorkel Tour was a definite highlight, with more dolphins on display than I could have fathomed, and the guide, Josh, was fantastic. The snorkeling wasn’t great due to the time of year we were there, but everything else about the day more than made up for it. My 10-year-old is still talking about how she swam in the ocean under a waterfall next to a tropical fjord! Lady’s cooking was fantastic, and the kindness of her family added much to our experience. We were here during the "Green Season" and were prepared to be housebound at points due to weather, but we had only one day where we had rain for more than a couple of consecutive hours. The temperatures were great, and we were able to get out for everything we wanted to do. If you are considering a trip to the Osa – and you should be! – you couldn’t choose a better home base than this! Thank you, Lara!"

  • Deserves all of the accolades & 5-star reviews

    "Ditto to all of the rave reviews of this property. Kerstin & Udo have built an absolutely amazing guest house that is private, serene, gorgeous & green, and they are the consummate warm & gracious hosts. We would live here if we could. Compared to really expensive hotels & options, this place competes & excels at an amazing rate especially given the amenities & lush surroundings. Cannot speak highly enough of everything about the Orange House."

  • Wonderful home away from home in paradise

    "Our family was lucky enough to have stayed at Casa Escondida for three months. We loved the home for many reasons; the house is airy and spacious, with a breath taking view of the beautifully manicured garden and back yard. Our daughter loved spending time outside exporing the trees and fauna. We would wake up everyday to the birds singing, toucans and parrots visiting the mammoth trees outside, and the general serene and quiet of the home. Although it is completely quiet and private, there are neighbours and Ricardo (the caretaking) close by and we always felt safe. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, fantastic yard and hammocks, and is maintained by a warm and wonderful staff to ensure that it is in beautiful condition. Casa Escondida is about 1 mile away from Playa Hermosa, which a beautiful beach known as one of the best surfing beaches. We enjoyed sunsets there and watching the weekly surf competitions. The Casa is a close 10 minute drive to Jaco beach which provides all the ammeneties we were looking for (including a farmers market and many restaurants/bars/stores), but it felt miles away from the crowds of Jaco. We also loved driving to the quiet and calm beaches of Playa Esterillos, which are about a 15 minute drive from the Casa. We would love to stay here again! Highly recommended for those seeking adventure and for anyone looking to truly relax and be away from it all. Pura Vida!"
