This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here…each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation. Start your mornings with the sounds of howler monkeys, the sight of tropical sunrises, and the aroma of Costa Rican coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. Fill you days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure – all available directly from your front steps. Finally, wind down the evening watching the flight of white ibis across the sunset over Isla Violin with a cold cervesa or mojito in hand. Sound like paradise to you...we think so too!
Our 905 sq. ft. cabina is part of the Sierpe del Pacifico eco-adventure community located along the elevated banks of the Sierpe River in Costa Rica’s world famous Osa Peninsula. Dubbed by National Geographic magazine as the world’s most bio-diverse place, the Osa is the last bastion of untouched wilderness, tranquility, and privacy in Costa Rica.
Our cabina’s location on the Sierpe River – a fully navigable river that flows into the Pacific Ocean – serves as a direct connection to all of the best adventure activities that Costa Rica is known for. Accessible directly from the front steps of the cabina are 5 kilometers of hiking trails that weave through primary rainforest, wetlands, mangroves, and 3 tropical fruit filled gardens… all great for wildlife watching and birding. Feel free to help yourself to the fruit as well, the resident monkeys certainly do! Four kayaks are stored on-site and are yours to use for exploring the river and its tributaries. Are you a fan of fishing? If so, you’ll be glad to know that some sizable red snapper and snook have been caught from the two riverfront piers. For adrenaline junkies some pretty intense mountain biking and horseback riding trails connect the SDP property to the Mirimar mountain range to the south. Finally, if you just want to sit back and enjoy the wide open views of three coastal mountain ranges, Isla Violin, and the daily flights of macaws, toucans, and parrots over the river, two additional hill-top scenic overlook verandas are just a couple minutes walk from the cabina.
In addition to the on-site activities, it is highly recommended that you arrange for a variety of tour boats to pick you up at the riverfront dock for some of the ocean related activities that have made this area so popular with tourists. Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling, diving (Costa Rica’s most renowned), wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park, Cano Island hiking, snorkeling, surfing, beach cruises, and dolphin and whale watching. All of these tours can easily be arranged for you by the owner and are of a very high quality.
The cabina itself is less than a year old and was built in the signature Sierpe del Pacifico “refined rustic” style. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of micro-mesh screened windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 215 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely “off the grid here”, a well appointed solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone coverage will keep you comfortable and connected. A queen-sized orthopedic mattress comfortably sleeps two in the main bedroom, a full sleeps two more in the downstairs bedroom, and a pull-out futon and air mattress can accommodate two more. There are spacious 3/4 baths with high volume/pressure showers in both the upstairs and downstairs. The kitchen is fully stocked and features island seating for six, a gas range/oven, and a sizable refrigerator. For entertainment purposes there is a stereo/CD player/ipod adapter, and books and board games. 3G cell phone service at the property is very good and can provide broadband internet to cell phones and laptop connect cards.
Upon your arrival by boat (it’s the only way to get here) the boat captain will walk you up the access road to the cabina and help you with your bags. The beds will be made, the fridge will be cold, and linens and towels will be available for the duration of your stay. Maid service can be arranged for an extra charge. For your safety and convenience there is an on-site caretaker who lives a few hundred yards away. A cell phone will also be provided to you for emergency contact and booking of tours.
While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous, independent, and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a large hill. While the cabina is brand new and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid” and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but 4 overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition!
