"My children and I just returned from a week on the Osa and it was by far, the best vacation ever. This peninsula is just as God made it, amazing!! Casa Marmaris was perfect for us! Falling asleep and waking up to nothing but the sound of nature was just what I was looking for, and that was exactly what we got! The view from everywhere on this property was just beautiful. I would have to say that the very best part of this stay was having Desire, Isaac and Andreas right there with us. They are great souls that just added to the natural beauty of this entire place!"

"Wow, what a breathtakingly beautiful house and property. I've never seen so many beautiful birds in my life. We've been to the Osa several times and this is by far the most central, best property to rent. It's smack dab in the middle of Matapalo and one can generally walk to everything, not that one needs to. You could literally spend your entire vacation at the house and the beach out front. The Caretakers are the most lovely people and are extremely knowledgable about everything and anything to do. They are there to answer any questions and tucked away so you have ultimate privacy as well. The layout of the house is perfect and all I keep thinking is how magical this place is. You are steps away from the beach, but luckily there is enough foliage in front of the house that you are not living in a fish bowl. This allows for way more privacy than the other houses that might have better views but everyone can see into those houses. It's the best of both worlds. The kitchen is amazing and what a great place to hang out and socialize around meals and coffee. You can literally open up the entire upstairs so that you feel as though you are in a big tree house as all you can see is lush green picaresque trees with scarlet macaws, toucans, parrots and more beautiful song birds than you can shake a stick at. You can then fold in the windows and slats at night to feel more tucked in. Each of the beds have fans for the hot nights but there always seems to be a breeze coming off the water to keep one refreshed. There is a perfect little plunge pool that is deep enough that one can submerge themselves up there there ears to cool off. There is beautiful bamboo and old growth trees and more amazing flower plant than I've seen anywhere. The indoor/outdoor showers are so beautiful. Once can observe so much nature in the trees near by but it all seems to stay far enough away as not to bother you. I saw four different kinds of monkeys including these little amazing squirre monkeys that are the cutest things I've ever seen. They came through with little mini babies on their backs. Our kids spent almost all there time hanging in the hammocks and watching the nature go by. There are two of the most incredible surf breaks right out front. One for beginners and one that is for beginners/intermediate and experts. The beach was basically empty most of the time, we felt like we had our own private beach. We've been to the Osa a bunch and this is hands down the most perfect spot."

"We stayed here for 4 nights in March and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and it is set up to take full advantage of the breeze and the view. The weather was extremely hot during our stay -36 degrees Celsius - but we were able to sleep comfortably with the provided fans.
I'm a bird lover and it was sooo incredible to watch scarlet macaws in the trees just outside the bedroom windows. The property has all kinds of fruit trees and wildlife. We cooked for ourselves as we had been eating almost exclusively in restaurants during the earlier part of our vacation. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the fridge can hold a huge amount of food. The area is really incredible and we enjoyed exploring on foot and by car. The owners (Phoebe specifically) were very prompt in all communications and provided very helpful information. The caretaker family were always available and accommodating. We did not require help cooking meals but we did ask them to do some laundry for us and to help to arrange a dolphin-watching tour. They were always available to answer questions but were not at all intrusive.
We highly recommend staying here. We hope to return ourselves to the Osa and to Quinta Sonada."

"My husband, son (11), daughter (9) and I had the most perfect stay at Casa Dulce. It is absolutely everything we had hoped for in Matapalo. Simply the view from the house is worth going for.... and then there is fun surf directly out front, fabulous wildlife coming through the yard and trees, a super friendly and helpful caretaker (who also has a grown son who is very helpful, kind and generous), and a fabulous little pool to play in....the list never ends. The open windowless windows, mosquito nets covering the beds, lush gardens....are what this area of Costa Rica is all about, and you have it all here! The beach is literally 100 steps from the house. All of the photos, the other 4 prior reviews and what the owner says about the experience is totally true. It is completely safe as well. I honestly cried when we had to leave after 9 days, and we all hope to go back as soon as we can."
