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;

snorkeling.

Just terrific!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing experience!!!! We enjoyed our stay from the moment we arrived until we departed. By far one of the best vacations we have ever had. We’re already trying to figure out when we can return.

House – absolutely beautiful!! Was very spacious as we came in with a group of 11 people. Never once felt crowded. We were able to eat as an entire group at the same table. The home and grounds were kept spotless during our stay by Adrianne and Walther – two of the most amazing staff members. The view is absolutely magnificent with monkeys in the trees right by the infinity pool – breath-taking!!

Food – amazing!!! Three complete meals daily with fresh squeezed juice at every meal. Everything was made fresh and was absolutely delicious!! We had so many great conversations with our chefs Esther and Adrianne. Both are wonderful ladies and will be our lifetime friends.

Activities – priceless!!! Elias our host was the most amazing man!! The passion he has for his country shows in his work of entertaining his guest. He is very, very respected in his community and it shows. Elias lined up all of our activities (again, there was 11 of us)!! He was able to always keep all of us together for all of our activities which included: horseback riding, 4-wheeling, zip lining, pottery tour, off-shore fishing, visiting several different beaches, tiki bars, shopping and even dinner reservation. Elias was always there for money exchange or anything we needed. He taught us so much about the culture in Costa Rica. Elias and his staff truly complete this vacation home.

Again, this was a dream come true vacation!! Beautiful with the most amazing staff that will be our friends forever. Special thanks to Elias, Adrianne, Walther and Ester!! Pura Vida!!

An out of the way vacation home that was perfect for our family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Casa Ostional offered our family the space and location for a week long reunion. The setting, high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Pacific was dramatic and most scenic. The breezes were constant and the private infinity pool allowed us to cool off and provided us with many relaxing hours of R&R. Casa Ostional is really an all inclusive experience and this was the highlight for us. We were fed, chauffeured, entertained, guided, and educated by four wonderful individuals. Special dietary requirements were handled, reservations were made, suggestions were provided and our needs were met. We were able to balance activities, sunset viewings, beer and snack runs, beach outings with simply hanging out and doing nothing.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable experience. Elias Esther Adrianne and Walther are all absolutely amazing. This is a peaceful Oasis no phones no TVs just peace and the absolute stunning beauty of Costa Rica. Elias and the others took the best of care to make sure we have an unbelievable experience and like all the other reviews say.. we left with new friends. We saw monkeys and lizards and fish and chickens and cows and waterfalls. It was everything it promised to be plus a million times more. If you are looking for the true Costa Rican experience this is where you need to be. I can't say enough great things... I feel like I spent a week with my extended family #bestvacationever 😊

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do you take 5 kids on a family vacation with kids ranging from 18 to 8? This was the perfect place! Think of this place as a mini all inclusive resort. But better. You have to do the food and hire Elias as driver and tour guide. We would've been lost without those two things. But, they are well worth the money. Luis is an excellent cook and Elias really is the perfect tour guide. He knows all the best places to go and you always feel safe when he is around. Plus, he's a lot of fun and easy to be around. This is by far the best vacation our family has gone on. The turtles! The horseback and four wheel tours! The zip lines! The deep sea fishing! The beaches!! Do all of it! I am so glad we have this trip as a family memory. It was an adventure of a lifetime...

Wonderful trip on so many levels

  • 5 of 5

We are avid travelers who put a lot of thought and research behind every trip and typically take care of our own transportation, food, and itinerary. However, this being our first time in this remote area of Costa Rica and hearing about the lack of road markings, we were happy to hear that we could be paired up with a host/driver during our trip. When we first met Elias, we knew we were in good hands. Not only was he extremely personable, but he knows almost everyone in the region and can pinpoint perfect travel destinations based on your preferences.

The house - simple, yet stunning. We are very particular about where we stay because after all, it will be your home for your vacation. Not only is the view magnificent, but it is tucked away and you are in your own remote oasis. With the beauty and tranquility, you have to realize that it will take you some time to get to your various destinations - but you are on vacation, and it's part of the adventure. There is no cable or wifi, but we seldom missed having it.

Luis, the chef, and Ester, the sous chef are wonderful. They are down to earth, friendly and want to make sure you are relaxing and feeling at home.

Our favorite activities during the course of the trip were zip lining, fishing (Nosara Sea Saw Tours is an unbelievable experience), laying out on the remote beaches, visiting the volcano and hot springs.

We are missing the house, the location and the people tremendously. We hope to return soon.

Pura Vida!

One of our most favorite vacations

  • 5 of 5

We found out about Casa Ostional from our neighbors, and we are so glad we took them up on their recommendation. It is truly a unique and amazing experience. We took our two boys, ages 11 and 13, and they had a ball. The home is beautiful, Elias is an amazing tour guide/host/Spanish teacher and Luis' food is incredible -- we did not go hungry. We especially loved the fresh juice at every meal. We fished, snorkeled, zip lined, took an ATV tour and enjoyed several beaches. The infinity pool is so beautiful to relax in and enjoy the view of the ocean and beautiful trees. We even enjoyed visits from the monkeys on several of the afternoons -- spectacular! I highly recommend this home -- it is an unforgettable experience. We plan to come back again soon.
