  • Fantastic jungle home

    "We had a fabulous time at the Sierpe del Pacifico property. If you are looking for a wild Costa Rican adventure, then you won't be disappointed. The home is beautiful, and the views stunning. We were awakened by howler monkeys every morning and found them sleeping on the property during the day, and most mornings a large troupe of white-faced capuchin monkeys passed right by the house. There were lots of birds to watch, and a fruit garden to go pick your own fruit...paradise found! We took a night tour of the mangrove and saw mammals (including squirrel monkeys), birds, crocs, caimans and snakes. We took a horseback riding tour and were wowed by the generosity of Rosita and her family on their farmstead; we went fishing in the ocean and caught five species of fish including red snapper, albacore tuna and roosterfish - while seeing porpioses and sea turtles to boot! The house is well equipped, the staff are welcoming and friendly. When we went in March it was hot and humid for us northerners - an outdoor shower might be a nice addition to the property for a quick cool down - but all in all we were wowed with this portion of our trip."

  • Absolutely incredible!

    "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."

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

    "I have been to Cabo Matapalo 6 times and have stayed at many lovely places, but Casa Osa Marmaris is my favorite! First of all, let me talk about the people. As you know, that can make all the difference. Ximena is so professional, organized, responsive, and helpful with all of the little details as I was hosting a Wellness Adventures Retreat and there were more details than usual. The caretakers, Isaac and Desiree are the absolute best! They welcome you with Costa Rican hospitality and you truly feel taken care of the entire time. Desiree is an amazing chef and prepared the most delicious, healthy, and fresh Costa Rican dishes that we could have ever asked for. I really enjoyed practicing my Spanish as Desiree was also practicing her English. We communicated perfectly and she always had such a warming friendly smile on her face! So, let me try to explain and capture the feeling of the house. Imagine beautiful turquoise blue ocean right in front of you, the sounds of the waves crashing, and since the Casa sits up a little higher, AMAZING ocean breezes and rainforest all around you. Listen to the sounds of scarlet macaws, toucans, and howler monkeys, all while doing Yoga or receiving a therapeutic massage under an open air thatch roof gorgeous house with indigenous hardwood floors. We were up for a spectacular sunrise every morning as we just couldn’t bear to miss it and we were greeted by dolphins a couple of times too! The separate unit concept is brilliant. You can retreat to your own bungalow and have your own space with the same fantastic view, or you can hang out in the main house and lounge in the comfortable furniture. Combine that with the fact that this house is situated right in the middle of one of the most biodiverse places in the world…..paradise! You feel as though you are in a zoo, but you have the privilege of seeing all the animals in their natural habitat. 4 types of monkeys, 3 toed sloths, largest population of scarlet macaws, toucans, hummingbirds, etc. This is where the rainforest comes right up to the ocean, so there will be many times when you are on one of the many deserted beaches, and you will be greeted by scarlet macaws, hawks, and monkeys. It is so stunning that it took a while for the members of my retreat to absorb it all! Experience of a lifetime!!"

  • Charming house, great hosts!

    "Our stay at Mango St. Casita was just what we hoped for. It’s a sweet little house, next door to owners’ house, but out of sight—sufficiently private. We had our own little patio that backed up onto a patch of jungle, where we saw birds, butterflies and cute little lizards – but not the sloths or monkeys other guests sometime see! Owners Nichole and/or Mario would stop by every day to see if we needed help organizing anything, or finding food—I had some of the best fresh fish I’ve ever had, when Mario found us some red snapper that had just been caught that day! They helped arrange trips to Corcovado, snorkeling, the night hike (fabulous!), and a private bird-watching walk (Carlos was great!). We loved having our own little place, and felt very taken care of as well. The house is a 5 minute walk from the boat landing, or to the collection of little restaurants and tiny tiendas in town. You can also walk from town down the coast, in the jungle with ocean views and sweet little beaches, for as far as you want. We had a great time, and would happily come stay here again!"
