About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Our house is a traditional "open-air" rancho design. The design is loft-style with two sleeping areas upstairs and one downstairs. The beds are all double size with mosquito net canopies over each. Each bed has its own reading light and fan. There is a full kitchen complete with stove, refrigerator, hot water and all cooking utensils. There is a dry-room lock-up for valuables such as cameras and wallets, etc...
The living room adjoins the kitchen area with a couch and easy chair. The kitchen has a nice family table (seating for four)...all with a beautiful view of the ocean.
The front porch is the highlight of the house with its beautiful Cristobel bar and bar stools overlooking the pool and kitchen area. Imagine sitting by the pool, watching the breakers roll in while catching a glimpse of the scarlet macaws flying overhead and the monkeys scampering by to get coconuts from the trees on the beach. It's paradise found.
Come to relax and enjoy the solitude of the private two-acre preserve, and if you need to stay connected, we do have Wi-Fi!

About the owner: Rick Hardy, spent more than a decade visiting Mexico for his sand and surf fix, but after some prodding from a Costa Rican college friend he decided to visit Costa Rica. One visit and it was no more Mexico for him! He had found paradise and promptly bought beautiful Casa Dulce in 1991. Since that time, Rick and his family have enjoyed escaping the hustle and bustle of the States by retreating to Casa Dulce twice a year. "When we come down here life just seems to slow down and we realize how little we need to get by and still be happy. In fact, we're happier here than we are in the States with all of the trappings of the modern world. One of the things we love the most about coming down here is 'family time'. When we are in the States, everyone is so busy, we hardly ever see each other, much less take the time to sit down together to work on a puzzle, play a board game, or just talk with one another. That's probably my favorite reason for coming to Casa Dulce." -- Rick Hardy
Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
Owner Rick Hardy has frequented countless beaches and surf spots in the past 30 years - landing on the Osa as his second home. The beaches are beautiful and still relatively uncrowded (compared to more touristy spots like Guanecaste or Tamarindo). If you are looking to slow down, enjoy everything the jungle and beach have to offer - you've come to the right place. If you're looking for bars, crowds, and connectivity back to the real world, you may want to keep looking.
