Carefully crafted to exist in harmony with nature, Casa Del Cabo focuses its view on the outside world with a fully open living space that captures the ocean breeze and eliminates the need for air-conditioners or fans. The house is designed to be gentle on the surrounding environment so that your visit to Casa del Cabo leaves only a light footprint. The home’s main structure and the floors are constructed out of ironwood, the roof is built with a tropical wood called purple heart, and the outside decks are Ipe wood. These exotic woods originate from locally-gathered fallen trees.
In this open-air house, the sounds of the sea lull you to sleep. Your senses become finely tuned to the pristine rainforest environment that surrounds you. This is a truly unique opportunity to experience the natural beauty of Costa Rica, and to relax in its calming embrace.
In the garden below the house we have planted hundreds of banana plants, durian trees, guanabana trees, and other exotic fruit-bearing trees. Eat fresh-from-the-tree tropical fruit and observe the wildlife that it attracts as it ripens. Fresh tree-ripened coconuts are everywhere, Walter the grounds keeper will open them for you with his machete.
One of the last places in the world where primary rainforest extends to the high tide line, the Osa Peninsula is a hauntingly beautiful environment. This remote, lush, and relatively unexplored corner of Costa Rica is home to over 2.5% of the entire world’s animal and plant species. Endangered species like Baird’s tapir, the white- lipped peccary, the Central American squirrel monkey and pot-bellied spider monkey inhabit the forests of the Osa Peninsula. A place where jaguars still roam the jungles, scarlet macaws and toucans fly freely about, and breeding populations of humpback whales swim by the shores, the Osa Peninsula has been described as the most biologically intense place on earth (National Geographic).
