"Wow, what a breathtakingly beautiful house and property. I've never seen so many beautiful birds in my life. We've been to the Osa several times and this is by far the most central, best property to rent. It's smack dab in the middle of Matapalo and one can generally walk to everything, not that one needs to. You could literally spend your entire vacation at the house and the beach out front. The Caretakers are the most lovely people and are extremely knowledgable about everything and anything to do. They are there to answer any questions and tucked away so you have ultimate privacy as well. The layout of the house is perfect and all I keep thinking is how magical this place is. You are steps away from the beach, but luckily there is enough foliage in front of the house that you are not living in a fish bowl. This allows for way more privacy than the other houses that might have better views but everyone can see into those houses. It's the best of both worlds. The kitchen is amazing and what a great place to hang out and socialize around meals and coffee. You can literally open up the entire upstairs so that you feel as though you are in a big tree house as all you can see is lush green picaresque trees with scarlet macaws, toucans, parrots and more beautiful song birds than you can shake a stick at. You can then fold in the windows and slats at night to feel more tucked in. Each of the beds have fans for the hot nights but there always seems to be a breeze coming off the water to keep one refreshed. There is a perfect little plunge pool that is deep enough that one can submerge themselves up there there ears to cool off. There is beautiful bamboo and old growth trees and more amazing flower plant than I've seen anywhere. The indoor/outdoor showers are so beautiful. Once can observe so much nature in the trees near by but it all seems to stay far enough away as not to bother you. I saw four different kinds of monkeys including these little amazing squirre monkeys that are the cutest things I've ever seen. They came through with little mini babies on their backs. Our kids spent almost all there time hanging in the hammocks and watching the nature go by. There are two of the most incredible surf breaks right out front. One for beginners and one that is for beginners/intermediate and experts. The beach was basically empty most of the time, we felt like we had our own private beach. We've been to the Osa a bunch and this is hands down the most perfect spot."

"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"

"Outstanding, breathtakingly beautiful, and the best location imaginable, right on Backwash beach and footsteps to Pandulce....also a 30 min. boat ride to Pavones, all famous surf spots. We highly recommend this home! My son graduated high school this year and is a surf/nature enthusiast, as well as my daughter. We took morning walks with scarlet macaws flying over head, and monkeys swinging through the tree canopies above. Truly magical, and the perfect place for family bonding, adventure, and much needed disconnect. We would highly recommend having Isabelle cook, it was the BEST food ever...we still crave her cooking! We will return one day, there is no place we would rather stay in Osa."

"One of the best vacations ever! Beautiful views, just awesome. Pictures do not do it justice. We had a fantastic time and Marvin and Patricia were excellent hosts. Wonderful cooks and housekeeper. We were never disappointed with the Villa, Food, Activities, etc. We will definitely be back!!!"
