"We had an amazing stay at this cabin in the forest. It was a trip of a lifetime. The cabin was just perfect. We were 6 in total and it was the perfect size. What an experience to be without any human sounds, just forest sounds, for 5 days. We loved the open design so that we felt like part of nature while we were in the cabin. Having Guillermo available to help was great. We went fishing, snorkeling, kayaking,hiking through the mangroves, hiking in Corcovado and everything was such an adventure. We saw so much just from our own porch : birds, monkeys, sunsets, beautiful thunder storms etc. We enjoyed cooking "minimally" with the supplies that we bought when we arrived in Sierpe and carried up to the cabin.
Everything was exactly as the listing described, only more magical. Not for small children and definitely a steep hike to get to the cabin. But so worth it! No direct access to shops, so plan ahead and arrange a boat ride into Sierpe with Guillermo of needed.
We will be back and will definitely stay here again. Thanks Cassidy, Guillermo, Rayna, Ceasar and Oscar for this amazing experience!"

"We stayed in Pelican house for 6 nights and could have stayed 6 weeks! The location is beyond spectacular. It feels remote and yet it is close enough to town to get groceries and have dinner (ceviche at Marisqueria Corcovado was a favorite!). The beach is almost always deserted, the water 80+ degrees and the sand incredibly soft. The house is well appointed with a comfortable bed, amazing outdoor shower, and well stocked kitchen.
Rafa, the property caretaker, made our stay particularly unique and memorable. He, his wife and daughter, are incredibly warm and welcoming. We enjoyed so many laughs with him and he is truly knowledgeable about the local area, plants and wildlife. If you speak Spanish and want to go for a local hike, Rafa is an amazing guide. He has an uncanny ability to spot birds, monkeys and other critters way up in the canopy. Although he will decline any money, add it to his tip at the end as he is not otherwise paid for being a guide for the guests--we were happy to be able to support a local family, especially one we had gotten to know so well!
If you can pry yourself from the hammock, explore the local dirt roads and beaches. Some of the bridges (particularly the first one coming from Puerto Jimenez) are a bit scary--the railings have been stolen and the bridge is the width of the car---but you'll get used to it and it adds to the adventure:) The surrounding area is incredible with lush jungle and beautiful farms. If you don't venture off the property, you are still guaranteed to see a ton of wildlife---I even saw a Jaguarundi while sitting on the deck--amazing!
Thanks Allison for being so easy to work with and for sharing your amazing piece of paradise! We hope to return!"

"This was an absolute perfect getaway - from the food to the atmosphere. The house was absolutely incredible - every detail was clearly thought out from the outdoor dining area to the amazingly comfortable beds. This is truly a 5 star resort. The house is literally 5 minutes from 3 incredibly beautiful beaches - all with fantastic surfing waves. The water is easy to enter for kayakers and paddle boarders as well. Not to mention the crowning achievement of the house - the staff. Every single meal was absolutely delectable from fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning to perfectly cooked tuna steak - I have truly never experienced such consistently amazing food (all sourced locally). And as a new yorker, this is saying A LOT. The staff are some of the friendliest people in the world and are willing to go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Not to mention, they do an excellent job of cleaning your rooms every day making sure it is fresh for your arrival every night. I already have my next trip planned and cannot wait to return!"

"I´ve been to other houses in the area and this is by far the best house I´ve ever stayed at. It´s beautiful yet rustic, and in total harmony with the vegetation and the enviornment. Rooms are fresh and comfortable, kitchen is fully equipped and spacious; and it has a nice pool and social area. It´s located a few steps from Matapalo which, to my luck, was pumping during my stay. Olman and Lady, the caretakers, are very nice people and they have the house and the property very well taken care of. Others: good WIFI, beautiful gardens, hot water. It´s just great... For sure we´ll try and go back. Cheers. Javier"
