"We spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The host who met us (Guillermo) was helpful in every way and speaks excellent English. The house is really fabulous, and we found it such a relaxing place to spend time. It has plenty of room for 2 couples. Others have described it accurately in terms of what you will experience there. We loved taking the kayaks out (yes, there are crocodiles but they avoid the kayaks and just slip away from the boats). Because we were there in the off-season, there was not too much traffic up and down the river so thumbing a lift to the mainland wasn't really an option. However, transport can be arranged with SDP. They provided us with a local cell phone which was very helpful. There is a propane-fired barbecue on a separate deck and this was very useful for cooking the amazing fish we bought directly from a fishing boat on the return from a day at Corcovado NP. We are in our early 50's, in reasonable shape, and the hill to the house was just fine."

"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!"
