"We stayed here for 4 nights in March and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and it is set up to take full advantage of the breeze and the view. The weather was extremely hot during our stay -36 degrees Celsius - but we were able to sleep comfortably with the provided fans.
I'm a bird lover and it was sooo incredible to watch scarlet macaws in the trees just outside the bedroom windows. The property has all kinds of fruit trees and wildlife. We cooked for ourselves as we had been eating almost exclusively in restaurants during the earlier part of our vacation. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the fridge can hold a huge amount of food. The area is really incredible and we enjoyed exploring on foot and by car. The owners (Phoebe specifically) were very prompt in all communications and provided very helpful information. The caretaker family were always available and accommodating. We did not require help cooking meals but we did ask them to do some laundry for us and to help to arrange a dolphin-watching tour. They were always available to answer questions but were not at all intrusive.
We highly recommend staying here. We hope to return ourselves to the Osa and to Quinta Sonada."

"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 fell in love with this house. The pictures do not do it justice.
Open air, no bugs, gorgeous views, wonderful fresh water pool. Great drinking water right from the tap....I could go on. We enjoyed the hike down to the beach, hiking to the nearby waterfall, and spending time exploring the area. The drive from town was pretty easy but I would want to do it the first time in daylight. The cook and family that look after the place are a huge part of the appeal here. They are wonderful people and the meals were something we looked forward to every time. LOVED this place!! I'm bringing my fishing rod next time. We were a family of 5 and another couple and there was plenty of room. I love the sound of surf at night but some people might want an earplug or two and a flashlight is handy."

"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."
