Recent Osa Peninsula reviews

  • Afraid to tell you how great this spot is

    "Because you might book it up and make it impossible for me to rent next time! Jim is a great host, and the listing is exactly as he says. This is for adventurous folks who wish to truely go off the grid for a while. My wife and I enjoyed being removed from society for a week and wish we had more time there to unwind even further. I can't say enough about the views, the seclusion and the absolute peacefulness of Siepre Rio. A must on your bucket list!"

  • Paradise Found at Sierpe Del Pacifico

    "My family of five had the adventure of a life time at Sierpe del Pacifico (our three children range in ages from 8-17). The jungle home is stunning, clean and placed right in the middle of the jungle--toucans, parrots, capuchin and howler monkeys are neighbours. We loved the solitude and natural splendour of the property. Paradise is simply sitting on the porch, overlooking the jungle and the Sierpe River, watching scarlet macaws fly by. We took boat trips to Corcovado Park, Cano Island, Violin Island and went horseback riding with Rosita (which was so much fun)! Caesar was a top notch guide in Corcovado--very informative and he tracked a tapir for us. Felipe was a friendly, kind and knowledgeable driver on our way to and from San Jose. In fact, everyone we dealt with regarding our vacation was friendly, knowledgable and eager to help. The experience best suits those who enjoy nature and wilderness, don't mind hot and humid weather and can handle a 5-10 minute up hill climb to the house from the dock. Make sure to stock up on groceries well before Sierpe as we found the town grocery store lacking. Being submersed in the true jungle, I learned more on the Oso Peninsula about life than in my 8 years of university. I've been home for a while; yet, I still miss the howler monkeys and their morning calls. Thank you Cassidy, it was the most amazing vacation and I'd love to return."

  • Paradise.... comfortable yet tropical!

    "When you come to Costa Rica you expect amazing nature, abundant wild life, and deserted beaches... You won´t find this in Quepos or Dominical anymore, but it is exactly what we found at Playa Lapa! I visited Playa Lapa for 10 nights at the beginning of July, I wish I could have stayed there longer, this is definitely the best place in Costa Rica that I have visited and one of my favorite places in general! I was travelling with my family with a rented 4x4 and we decided to spend our whole Costa Rican vacation in this simply amazing beach rental, one of the nearest options to Corcovado National Park- only a 45 minute walk away. The two master bedrooms are beautiful, with gorgeous views of the jungle, beach and nearby lagoon. We were completely surrounded by the green vivid colours of the flaura, the sounds of birds and the singing frogs and insects, I slept so good and it was so exciting and magical to wake up in the morning! I already miss staying there! Everything was absolutely perfect. There was so much fresh fruit to pick from in the 2 hectare garden, it was brilliant! We spent many afternoons animal spotting and reading on the welcoming and private deck area of the house. We enjoyed a touching red sunset walking on the wild beach towards the lagoon, only a few minutes walk away from our ´home´. We went to the Corcovado National Park, one of the best experiences of our lives! Also not to be missed are the body surfing and strolling on the beach, breath-taking sunsets, morning choruses of howler monkeys, the vast view of the jungle and Pacific Ocean, kayaking in the lagoon viewing caiman, crocodiles, myriad birds and no other tourists, and soaking up the remarkable ambiance of the jungle’s embracing warmth, and vital intensity of “pura vida.” We are all really looking forward to go back to Playa Lapa for our next vacation!! This place is way more than a rental house, it becomes a home very quickly, 5 stars all round!"

  • 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!"
