Guestbook comments from the owner

You were on spot -- Elias was amazing: fun, thoughtful, and entergetic. He really made the vacation an experience and an adventure! We did many of the typical vacation things: ziplining, and snorkeling, but when I asked everyone to rate their top two experiences, here's what we got (and there are more than 2 answers as not everyone's answers were the same):

Watching the Olive Ridley turtles lay eggs, and learning about the village and its history with the turtles;

Fishing for tuna and reds, and more;

Cheering on the sabernaros as they competed to capture rings off a hanging string;

Driving up to Monte Verde and our fabulous night walk where we saw a two-toed sloth, pit viper, a prorcupine in a tree itching itself, sleeping jays, a hiding tarantula, and so much more;

Riding the rivers with guides and seeing crocodiles, screech owls, bats...;

Visiting the Guaitil Pottery makers and learning about their history and art;


Just terrific!

A Costa Rican Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful experience with a most wonderful host, Elias; chef, Luis; and sous chef and housekeeper, Esther. This was our second time here and will not be our last. We loved the house, the pool, the jungle, and the incredible views. Not only was our vacation set in a Costa Rican paradise, but we felt cared for by a team at Casa Ostional of excellent, lovely, and dear sweet people! Thank you. We loved it...Janet

So nice, we've been there twice!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second opportunity to enjoy Casa Ostional, Costa Rica, Elias, Luis and Ester. Every review talks about the food (plentiful and amazing!), the house, the infinity pool, the views, the wonderful activities and the best part of all, Elias. He again facilitated a fun, surprising, relaxing, adventure-filled vacation for us. And we didn't even know how much we'd depend on him to share all that there is to experience in this beautiful area of Costa Rica. We are so grateful! If you are craving a quiet and private environment for your vacation, and you want to also take advantage of the adventures around the area with your family, look no further. You just found it. We will be back for trip #3 soon! :)

An unforgettable family adventure

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to spend some quality time with our family and Casa Ostional more than delivered! From the moment we arrived at the airport , Elias was there to greet us and load up a mass of suitcases for five adults to whisk us off on an unforgettable adventure. The most wonderful thing was not having to worry about making the plans or how to get there. Elias was sure to find out exactly what would suit us and took us in the right direction. From atvs, ziplines, spelunking, snorkling , fishing, surfing to walking on the most remote beaches. It truly made each day such an adventure without the stress of planning. At the casa Luis , Elena and Ester took such awesome care of us in every way possible. They are a truly beautiful family. We cannot express our gratitude for how hard they worked to make sure we had a great vacation. And Luis........ what can i say other than WE MISS HIS COOKING!!!!! Oh my goodness he can cook!!!! Every meal was just superb. If you decide to take your holiday at Casa Ostional you certainly will not be disappointed. The gorgeous property, the tasty food, the endless adventures...... But the most important of all, the people........Elias, Luis ,Elena and Ester, it would not have been the same without them!!!! Pura Vida! What an amazing vaction

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

Our family trip to Casa Optional was perfection! Our family truly had the trip of a lifetime. Elias, Luis and Esther made the trip so relaxing and enjoyable. The food was amazing and they took special care with food allergies. Every adventure that Elias planned was great. ATVs, Zip Lines, fishing, horseback ridding-all were superb. Spending a relaxing day by the pool with the beautiful views are still vivid in my mind. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to enjoy with your family and friends!

Family Adventure of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Costa Rica looking for adventure--and we found it--with a little help from our new friend, Elias! Casa Ostional is a retreat and truly exemplifies Pura Vida--pure living! No matter what you would want to do from adventures like zip lining, ATV, sunsets, beach/surfing--Elias knows the best places to take you and makes sure you are taken care of. The food is amazing and we felt welcome everywhere we went. Casa Ostional is stunning and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time as a family. I would recommend this vacation to absolutely anyone and give it the highest rating!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as two families but felt as if we had formed a new extended family with Elias being our Papi! He was our host, driver, planner and all around expert on all things Costa Rica! Whether we wanted to go to the beach, go zip lining, ATV riding, horseback riding or just for a walk -- Elias took great care of us all! Like a mother hen taking care of his chickadees, he always made sure we were settled in (umbrellas and chairs set up) before leaving us on our own to explore. He navigated the bumpy dirt roads with care and answered all types of questions! As if this wasn't enough, we would come back to the house for 3 incredible meals a day, prepared and served by an incredible family! Fresh juice of all kinds (pineapple, mango, melon, etc) was served at every meal. Despite the lack of air conditioning, the many fans around the house, cooled us off or a dip in the infinity pool made for a great way to take a break. Sitting on the deck, we saw an incredible array of birds and animals including monkeys, parakeets, iguanas and more! The vista from the deck was beautiful, but if you wanted to watch sunset from the black sand beach, just let Elias know and you would be there in time to enjoy the beautiful vistas! I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a more local experience. This is not an all-inclusive setting -- this is a home that makes you want to keep coming back for more!
