  • Great big house close to Jaco.

    "Wonderful house in Esterillos Oeste. This house has three large bedrooms and is spacious enough for a big family. We had four in our party. So the house was big for us. Lovely community. Felt Very safe there. About a two minute drive to the beach here. Best place to eat in town was Sin Rival. Prices are decent and the Owner Chris is awesome! We mostly cooked in. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. Could use a pan to make cookies . We enjoyed staying here at this house very much. The owners were good communicators. Recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet place but also beautiful."

  • Everthing was great!

    "We could not have been more pleased. From our arrival to leaving was first class. We had a few things to handle regarding the computers and TV. These things were handled immediately. The people assisting us upon arrival were extremely nice and helpful. The other workman were very friendly and took care of the issues quickly. The condo was extremely nice. In fact, we are discussing returning and renting the same condo. I cannot think of one negative comment or problem we had. Thank you for making our vacation the best ever!"

  • ABSOLUTE PARADISE off the beaten path

    "On summer break, what does a family do with a 16-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy? What I wanted for my family was a cultural and educational experience that engaged my kids, but without them knowing they were actually learning anything. It is summer BREAK after all! I read an article about the Osa Peninsula a number of years ago, and I found Casa Bambu online. It seemed like everything I wanted for my family to experience from a vacation. I emailed Lyn back and forth (as a mother, I needed reassurances and got them), and she set up everything for the perfect getaway. And what a vacation it was! It went BEYOND our expectations! First, the absolute beauty of Casa Bambu is astounding. Every day you will see something different with the changing tides. The beautiful small storms that roll in change the landscape view and you'll witness a multitude of animals that call your front yard their home. From the spectacular sunrises, the breath-taking waterfalls, to the spider, capuchin, howler and squirrel monkeys swinging through the trees, the rainbow-colored toucans, the fearless and friendly coitis, the warm, rich smell of the earth on the "road" to Matapalo Beach, my mind is filled with wonderful memories of a place I will never forget. It was so easy for us to enjoy everything because our home was clean (spotless!) and had everything we needed to cook great meals and sleep comfortably and soundly (when the howler monkeys didn't have other things in mind!). There are maps for hiking and beach and tide information; everything was made easy for us. Lyn set up a fabulous boat tour for us out of Puerto Jiminez that was worth every penny. Four hours snorkling and swimming with dolphins on the blue-green waters of Golfo Dulce - we saw 40 times as many dolphins as we did boats. Our zipline tour that Lyn set up with Edwardo will not be forgotten either, both for the ziplining and for the fact that after telling Edwardo I had yet to see a sloth, he "located" one for me not far from where we were. Our journey to see this sleepy little animal was an adventure we will never forget! Bridges over dirt roads in Costa Rica are not for the faint at heart! Lyn and Kirk are the best hosts, always kind and helpful. They take care of and take pride in their property. William took us on two hikes, one to a waterfall with a swimming hole - FABULOUS - the other on a night hike where we saw a kinkajou. We recommend this vacation to any family and we hope to come back soon!"

  • Enchanting, Secluded Tropical Hacienda

    "We just returned from two weeks at Don Tomas' enchanting tropical hacienda where we had a spectacularly relaxing vacation! We thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of seclusion that his lovely home offers, while still being easily accessible to groceries and the funky coastal town of Santa Teresa (which has an array of exceptionally good restaurants!). Our favorite activities included reclining on the wrap around porch to delight in the myriad of tropical flowers and wildlife, (iguanas, hummingbirds, butterflies, birds, squirrels, crabs) that abound on the unique grounds--which are also spectacular in that they are filled with ancient tropical trees, hanging vines and tropical flowers. The backdrop of crashing surf sounds are as soothing as the surfing is exhilarating! Returning from the beach to an outdoor shower, lovely private pool and porch hammocks was also a treat. The house is simply furnished, yet has all the basics that one needs--with a very comfortable queen size bed. Charming murals decorate the rooms and the porch houses a lovely sculpted column of intertwined goddesses. Josefa, the caretaker, is exceptionally kind and welcoming and was ever so helpful with whatever was needed--a caring and responsive hostess! We were enchanted, are telling others about this tropical beachfront gem of a place--and are already looking forward to our next trip there!"
