"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."

"Kirk and William were so very helpful with all our questions and gave us details about what to expect. The 3 of us, including my son a 6 year old, had the unique experience of a life time. We decided not to rent a car and it was a good decision for us. We were such a part of wildlife with monkeys howling at 5:30 am, parrots yacking, and a beautiful beach filled with surfers just steps away. People came to our door selling fish, bread, etc. We loved the Costa Ricans (Tico's) and the people all around that made our trip so very special. I do highly recommend Casa Bambu. If you want to have a genuine Costa Rican's Jungle experience, Casa Bambu cannot be beat."

"We just returned from our vacation stay at Casa Dos Rios. What a wonderful place to stay while we explored this beautiful part of Costa Rica! Melanie and Kim have a beautiful home. They were very helpful with all arrangements -- everything from answering our many questions, to having a few things in the refrigerator for us when we arrived, to setting up our car rental and rainforest tour with Brian. We enjoyed our time relaxing at the Casa, seeing monkeys in the yard, hearing the Howler monkeys at night, watching the ocean tides go in and out. We recommend taking a sailboat tour with Kim and Melanie. What a wonderful way to see the Golfo Dulce. We were lucky enough to have a dolphin follow us on our way in. We also recommend the rainforest tour with Brian and visiting some of the really gorgeous nearby beaches, such as Playa Matapalo (the waves can be big though). For dining, so nice to have Martina's just a short walk away. We also enjoyed our dinner at Encanta la Vida. If you wish to see this beautiful part of Costa Rica and see amazing wildlife, we highly recommend you stay at Casa Dos Rios!"
