  • Best family vacation ever!

    "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."

  • BEST HOUSE ON THE OSA - MAGICAL AND LUXURIOUS!!!!

    "Hello fellow travelers!!! My fiancee and I were fortunate enough to have found Life's a Wave a few years ago. We fell SO in love with the house that we went back for ten days the following year, and then when we got engaged a few months later, we both knew exactly where we wanted to get married - our "happy place" on the Osa peninsula! Lara and Bill graciously opened their house to us this February for our ceremony on the beach in front of their house. We stayed at the house with 4 of our best friends and then 50 of our closest family and friends joined us on the Osa (taking over most of the other houses on the peninsula) for a week of wedding celebrations and pure bliss!!! Life's a Wave is the most special house that we've ever experienced. The rooms are spacious, the grounds are immaculate, the views are unbelievable, and the amenities are endless! The care takers, Lady and Olman will cook the most AMAZING meals and they go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Waking up to the sounds of waves and the jungle, taking a private outdoor shower while watching the scarlet macaws and monkeys, drinking Costa Rican coffee on the deck in the morning while reading a good book, or dipping in the pool and ocean are all a part of the unforgettable experiences that you will have at Life's a Wave. Not to mention - the surfing, hiking, sailing, massages, and checking out Martina's, the local bar with delicious food and cocktails! The Osa has this wonderful rustic quality, and the house feels SO luxurious. The balance is spectacular - beyond words! We plan to come back to visit Life's a Wave every year for as long as we possibly can - It truly is magical. We highly recommend that you experience the stay at this wonderful home. We could not have done our wedding without the help of Lara - she is so generous, helpful, and she was SUCH a great resource for all of our guests' travel and logistics. She is amazing, her and Bill's house is beyond words amazing. Do yourself a favor, stay at Life's a Wave and explore the Osa Peninsula - Costa Rica's last frontier!!!! Cheers, Becky and Ian Armstrong"

  • A Jungle Paradise

    "Our family and a few of our closest friends stayed at Tres Palmas in April and were overwhelmed by the wonders there. We were so lucky to find this amazing places sitting high above Cabo Matapalo where the jungle meets the beach. Marvin met us at the airport and was an indispensable asset throughout the trip. From nighttime journeys to see sea turtles laying their eggs to a hike into the jungle to enjoy a local waterfall - Marvin handled it all and he can cook too! The property was amazing and the rooms and cabinas were gorgeous and kept immaculate. The wildlife was awe inspiring. We saw 3 different kinds of monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, coati, frogs, tamandua and so much more. There is no way to explain how wonderful this place is. We cannot wait to come back."
