  • Great hideaway for those seeking wildlife!

    "My wife and I had a great time staying in Playa lapa. Every morning we were woken up by the scarlet macaws, monkeys would visit the mango tree that hangs over the house and it is well situated for hikes in Corcovado. As long as your are prepared with a cooler and all the necessities that Helene tells you to bring you will have a great stay."

  • 6 days of family adventure in paradise

    "and our top 6 reasons for why we will be going back to la Cuesta Roja: 1. Family-friendly - my partner and I and our two boys (7 & 9) had an adventure that will never be forgotten! We had no worries about their safety, lots of room to roam and expend energy, days were spent playing in the waves, running up and down the stairs - not as onerous as has been described, very manageable, generally discovering. Great house layout with separate room and bathroom for the kids, though we lived on the covered porch when not down at the beach or exploring the jungle. 2. Wildlife - the howler monkeys hung out one day in the trees beside the house, the 4 scarlet red macaws who returned to "their" tree daily, the lizards, the crabs, the wild horses on the beach across from the house, and all the dogs! Who needs a zoo - just go to la Cuesta Roja! 3. Vista & natural setting - overwhelmingly beautiful, just get in the hammock each morning and pinch yourself - it is real and it is amazing! Beaches to wander, jungle to explore, we paddled on the river and explored the mangroves. The stunning flowers around the property, discovering how pineapples grow, mango trees, banana trees and being able to eat as much coconut as we could! 4. La Cuesta Roja is remote yet so very comfortable - beds, cooking, small fridge, showers & flushing toilets (!), fab solar-powered system - never failed, laundry (!), even an iPod dock for our tunes in the evening!!! Jim has thought of everything. There are even 5-6 pairs of boots and 6 life-jackets as well as 2 boogie boards. 5. Jim was more like a friend than an owner, we really enjoyed our time with him - including a day of fantastic fishing - who catches a sailfish and a rooster fish - we did (well, Jim's expertise did!)!! He was so easy to work with, patiently answered all our Qs before we arrived, was available to us when were on-site and then shared pictures with us after our trip. Jim, you've got friends in Toronto!!! 6. This was a life experience, it is the most talked-about part of our 2wk trip in Costa Rica (surfing lessons in Dominical ranked #2!) and I've shared Jim's web-site link with loads of friends and encouraged them to take their own adventure. We'll be back :-)"

  • We highly recommend Casa Dos Rios!

    "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!"

  • 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."
