Bamboo Jungle Beach House

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Our bamboo house is available to rent - it's an open air, hand built jungle casa to enjoy a wonderful remote jungle living experience. Enjoy monkeys crossing the property daily, a virtually private beach and truly experience Costa Rica.

CASA HAS JUST BEEN NEWLY REFRESHED and refurbished. Still an amazing jungle casa - just better! Hammocks, comfortable beds, amazing beach steps away, privacy and tropical eco-luxury!

The space

Monkeys visit almost daily to the trees near the house. There are birds and butterflies in abundance.. and we have the largest population of Scarlet Macaws in the world. Collared anteaters and sloths can be seen in the adjacent forest.

Located approximately 150 meters from a deserted tropical beach and surrounded by tropical gardens, the house has two bedrooms and can sleep four to five people. (*See info at end about our additional cabina for larger groups.) The main bedroom is on the first floor and has plenty of shelving storage and a queen bed with mosquito net. The guest bedroom is on the open second floor loft and has a queen bed with mosquito net, built in desk and storage shelving. There is also a single day bed in the open living room area and another in the screened in salon/sitting area. We have extra mattresses if you want to set up a camp bed on the floor of the casa (for example - for kids). Each bedroom has bedside fans, reading and area lights and all linens are included - pillows, sheets, blankets and bath towels. Please note - we are off grid and on solar power - so we are unable to guarantee charging of electronics, laptops etc.

The open kitchen is fully equipped with all dishes, cookware, tons of counter space, refrigeration and a gas stove, kitchen island bar area with stools. The kitchen countertops and sink have led lighting (on solar) for cooking in the evenings. The main floor includes a large bamboo and hardwood dining table that can seat 8-10 people, and lounge chairs.

The mid-level sitting area/sala includes our hand made furniture (a single bed/sofa) and is fully screened in with double doors that can open up wide during the day. The lower front deck lounge includes built in sofa, chairs, hammocks and lovely view of the front gardens. Our caretaker will fill the elevated water tank from the well daily and check to be sure you have plenty of cooking gas - so you need not worry about anything.

The casa has an attached bath with a private outdoor shower with hot water and hand made artisan features throughout.

For groups of 6 or more: We also have a newly refreshed/expanded yoga deck / relaxation palapa / cabina located off the front gardens and situated right next to the pond. It's has a covered open air front deck pond-side perfect for yoga practice, a massage, or just listening to the frogs in the evenings. Sleeps 2. Beyond the front deck is a simple screened in sleeping area with double bed, skylight, sliding doors, lights and fans. There is an additional open kitchenette area included with the cabina too. Also, there's an adjacent bath for the cabina with outdoor shower. Note - Not included with groups under 5. Plenty of frog sounds.

We are renting on a weekly basis, and will consider shorter and longer stays as the schedule permits. Weekly and monthly rentals include weekly house cleaning.

Email to inquire about availability.

Note: Holiday weeks 5 day minimum requested.

Guest access

The main casa grande and all grounds are included for all groups. For groups of 6 or more, the pond deck casita is included as well.

Interaction with guests

When the owners are in town, we'll stop in and introduce ourselves and help give you any tips or advice as desired.. then you'll have full privacy. Our caretaker will stop by daily to check in on you, fill the water tanks and take care of the grounds. Full privacy given at all times. Enjoy. For longer stays, the caretaker will stop by several times a week.

Other things to note

Please read the information carefully. This is an open-air jungle casa - birds can and do fly through the living room, no - monkeys do not come in! We wish for you to be comfortable living this close to nature - it's a wonderful house and not for everyone. No a/c, not much power, no internet, no tv. Real beds, mosquito nets, a dipping pool to cool off, hammocks, games and books and a ton of tours available. Also- a ton of animals, an amazing beach, a natural incredible experience.

*Not great for very young children / little ones who are mobile and not talking yet. The casa does have open steps and open sides. Please see the photos. Thanks!
