  • Paradise Found at Sierpe Del Pacifico

    "My family of five had the adventure of a life time at Sierpe del Pacifico (our three children range in ages from 8-17). The jungle home is stunning, clean and placed right in the middle of the jungle--toucans, parrots, capuchin and howler monkeys are neighbours. We loved the solitude and natural splendour of the property. Paradise is simply sitting on the porch, overlooking the jungle and the Sierpe River, watching scarlet macaws fly by. We took boat trips to Corcovado Park, Cano Island, Violin Island and went horseback riding with Rosita (which was so much fun)! Caesar was a top notch guide in Corcovado--very informative and he tracked a tapir for us. Felipe was a friendly, kind and knowledgeable driver on our way to and from San Jose. In fact, everyone we dealt with regarding our vacation was friendly, knowledgable and eager to help. The experience best suits those who enjoy nature and wilderness, don't mind hot and humid weather and can handle a 5-10 minute up hill climb to the house from the dock. Make sure to stock up on groceries well before Sierpe as we found the town grocery store lacking. Being submersed in the true jungle, I learned more on the Oso Peninsula about life than in my 8 years of university. I've been home for a while; yet, I still miss the howler monkeys and their morning calls. Thank you Cassidy, it was the most amazing vacation and I'd love to return."

  • Gorgeous views, spacious and wonderful service!

    "Casa Luz is situated overlooking your own personal jungle! Every room has a view better than the next! We spotted a sloth, toucans and a monkey in the trees and enjoyed a symphony of birds every morning on the deck. Our boys, 13 and 16, loved the pool and all of the adventure activities Natalia arranged for us (Catamaran, Mangroves, Ziplining to name a few). We had a wonderful meal prepared for us the first night (for the same price as a meal in town) and ate leftovers much of the week. There is a little store just outside your driveway gates for the basics and many tours provide a typical Costa Rican meal. We enjoyed El Avion and Victoria's for dinner, but there are many choices we weren't able to visit this time. We would strongly suggest renting a car with a GPS (programmed for Costa Rica). We drove and navigated our way to many places quite easily, despite some roads being quite bumpy. While many people did walk to restaurants, etc. from this home--it was at least 1/2-3/4 mile to the main road with no shoulder. Locals seemed very accustomed to this, but we were happy to have a car. Take the time to visit places off the beaten path-- our visit to RainMaker was one of our favorite days. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of our home and Manuel Antonio. It isn't fancy or brand new, but there is definite pride in ownership and we had everything we needed for our stay. The people, especially Natalia, were gracious and accommodating and truly lived up to the motto--Pura Vida!!!"

  • This place is absolutely gorgeous.

    "The infinity pool is even better than in the pictures, with generous lounge chairs, an excellent grill, large deck & dining table. The under cover kitchen/living area is well laid out with many places to enjoy the expansive view of the sea & sound of the surf. Palm trees & flowers abound & if relaxing in the hammock here this doesn’t feel like paradise, I don’t know what does. Even better, guests here are cared for with the most expertise I have ever encountered. Javier can fix you up with all the adventures you desire, at reasonable prices & to fit your schedule. He seems to know everyone. We opted for snorkeling at Isla Tortuga, zip-lining at Montezuma & ATV exploration. I recommend all three. He can get you fresh seafood off the boat, recommend & take you to restaurants in St. Teresa, & ensure that minor repairs get made almost immediately. He can set up a beautiful dinner for you cooked at your house, & we highly recommend this treat. His local knowledge & expertise turned our nice week into a fantastic one. If you are considering this rental, double check that he will be available during your visit. I gave this five stars because of how much I enjoyed my stay. We're a family of 6 adults & recognize that this beautiful place might not be for everyone. The bedrooms are simply furnished in a sparse beach style & the two smaller ones are in a separate house with no view. Steep drop offs make this unsuitable for those with small children. Internet access works for only two devices at time, so the wifi happy must take turns. The living area is all outdoors, & you sometimes share your space with various other life forms. A dishwasher would have helped that situation. The sea breezes do fail & the overhead fans aren’t always up to the job, especially during midday. A few simple room fans would have made a world of difference. Note that the this is one of many private homes on the grounds of a hotel that is not so friendly. We were prohibited from using their poorly kept & seldom used tennis courts, even when we offered to pay & book our use in advance. Guests in private homes also cannot use or rent the hammocks on the beach, visit the hotel’s lookout point, etc. Our response was to not eat or drink at the hotel either. I’ve stayed at more lavish places & been on trips with far more planned entertainment. Yet this gorgeous place, with its amply privacy, time to relax & its many local adventures, provided a vacation that left me relaxed, refreshed & smiling"

  • Phenomenal Vacation at a spectacular location

    "We were a family of 8 travelling from Canada... 4 daughters aged 12 to 23, son-in-law and boyfriend, plus my wife and I. Everything about the trip was fantastic. The listing was not accurate....because the pictures don't do it justice! Unbelievable size, layout, comfort, etc. and what a view. The monkeys came by most days and the weather was perfect. Absolutely perfect. We were very comfortable with 8 people ...and there was room for more. Alex is excellent in his organizing of all our activities. We tried the horse back riding, repelling, national park tour and catamaran sail. All highly recommended. He organizes for pick up and drop off at the front door. Local restaurants were excellent too. Although cab drivers told us the walk to the beach was either "too long or too dangerous (due to traffic)", we walked it every day without problem. It was a great way to get some exercise after spending a day at the beach. Another thing Alex did was organize an on-site meal provided by a local chef (Kukula?). It was one of the best meals we have ever had, and we do a lot of travelling. We didn't rent a car, as the local grocery store was within walking distance, as were the restaurants, and we didn't mind the 20 minute walk to the beach. We flew to San Jose, and Alex organized the 2 1/2 trip for pick up and drop off at the end of the stay. The house was cleaned every day (we didn't realize that), and there are laundry facilities on site. We definitely over-packed. This is a flip flop and short/swim suit vacation. We didn't need to wear a sweater at any time during our stay. We will go back and I recommend this for families, couples, etc. The only caution I would have is for those with small children. The building code is no where near the restrictions that we have in Canada, and as such, the area around the main floor, infinity pool and stairs may be a safety hazard for small children. For adults, it adds to the beauty of this spectacular place! A+++++ and a 12 on a 1-10 scale. Truly spectatular."
