About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Low-impact...Living Off The Grid: We believe in living lightly and are off the grid, completely solar-powered – even the fridge. There are six ceiling fans and screens on all the louvered doors. Our kitchen is open, airy and fully equipped. Each of the two spacious bedrooms has an ocean view.
It’s a perfect setting for a honeymoon – romantic and private. It’s also perfect for a small family or two couples. The bedrooms and two private baths are separated by a large, open great room. On the best beach in the Osa - Pelican House is great for kids (and great without them!)...
It's perfect for adventurers - or hammock potatoes: A beautiful, pristine beach is steps away. World-famous Corcovado Park is only a short drive, as are a few of the world’s most celebrated ecolodges. Hire a guide and tour the park, take a zip line through the canopy, sign up for a dolphin tour, take surf lesson, or hire a private boat to carry you to the wildlife rescue center across the Gulf. Here you can meet many of the Osa’s unique animals: howler monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws… Or just veg at the house and swim between naps in the hammock. The beach is sandy, and the water is warm and gentle. The bird watching from our deck is great: scarlet macaws and flocks of parrots regularly grace the sky, while kites and local hawks hunt for prey in the nearby pastures. Because we are completely solar-powered, you can feel good (or at least better) about your carbon footprint!
Utterly Private - but convenient: Although remarkably private, we are only 10 minutes from the small town of Puerto Jimenez where you’ll find a vibrant community, choice of grocery stores, a handful of good restaurants and even internet cafes. We love walking 30 minutes down the deserted beach to The Pearl of the Osa restaurant to enjoy a first-class meal! You can rent a car in town, rent bicycles or simply take taxis when needed.
Please note that either e-checks or Paypal are preferred.

Pelican House is located in a gloriously unspoiled area of Costa Rica: the Osa Peninsula. The property is only ten minutes from the small town of Puerto Jimenez; it is utterly private but more convenient than properties farther from town. It is a 50 minute flight from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez -- or a 6 1/2 hour drive. You can rent a car in Puerto Jimenez -- or hire taxis. You can also rent bicycles. There is LOTS to explore in the Osa (rain forest trails, zip lines, bird or monkey watching, deep sea fishing, surfing, horseback riding) but once you see Pelican House you might not want to leave... !...
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I am a wildlife filmmaker and Jim is an artist (he designed Pelican House). When we vacationed on the Osa 8 years ago, it was love at first sight! We live on Cape Cod when we're not in Costa Rica. We care deeply about the natural world and doing all we can to protect it.
Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
The Osa is still untouched. It is a nature-lover's paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to unplug and settle into our natural surroundings. We love to cook our meals at home and swim at least once a day. Watching wildlife is always a favorite pastime. It's a great place to read and write. Quiet and inspiring.
