Why stay at Casa Rio Sierpe and the Osa Peninsula?
Casa Rio Sierpe is located on the northern edge of the Osa Peninsula along the banks of the Sierpe River, approximately 35* minutes by boat from the quaint town of Sierpe, which is considered the gate way to Osa. Casa Rio Sierpe is located among 2,500 acres of private reserve and adjoins the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in the Osa Peninsula. This area is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity and dubbed by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on earth”. The house is located in the heart of true primary and secondary rain forest, a plethora of wild life is to be found many of which are endangered or threatened. There are breathtaking post card views from the house and direct ocean access where you will find extremely private, pristine beaches all only 15* min away by boat , we truly have it all!
Are you looking to discover the magic of Costa Rica's rain forests, wildlife and pristine beaches? Are you planning your honey moon or looking to rekindle your romance? Are you an avid fisherman? With over 98 line and tackle world records recorded in both fresh and salt water in the immediate area you are sure to have that once in a lifetime fishing trip. Perhaps you’re an active adventure seeker looking for a nonstop, adrenaline filled vacation or you just want to relax on our back deck in the double hammock with a glass of wine or cold cerveza and watch the monotonous grind and stress of modern day life melt away before you. Are you having a hard time satisfying everyone’s needs in a vacation? Perhaps you are looking for a romantic getaway but others want to go fishing, you want to go to the beach, others want to experience the rain forest, why choose only one when you can have it all! A stay at casa Rio Sierpe guarantees to fulfill your wildest vacation dreams and it will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul providing you with a virtual backstage pass to one of the world's most fascinating and diverse destinations.
At Casa Rio Sierpe you'll find ultra-private luxury accommodations and full service amenities typically only found in resorts but in the comfort and privacy of a home. Our newly built, 2,200 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line * at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 180 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping!
Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 10 min walk away.
The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with two attached full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck. The first bedroom features a queen size bed, large armoire and a 180 degree view of the rain forest, the surrounding tropical landscape and river valley below. The second bedroom features a king size bed and private balcony overlooking the valley. The over sized kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer, 6 burner gas stove with oven, reverse osmosis purified water and of course a blender! Also, don’t worry about doing those dishes, you’re on vacation, our staff will take care of those as well! All of this is sure to sooth any culinary indulgence that a guest may have! The living room opens directly onto the 600 ft2, covered back terrace complete with ceiling fans, double hammock, lounge & rocking chairs, Webber BBQ and a large dining room table. This is the perfect spot for your daily relaxation, enjoying breath taking views and meeting many of our local neighbors as well. Almost on any given day expect to see resident Scarlet macaws, parrots, Toucans, Aracaris, noisy parakeets, hummingbirds, squirrels, Howler monkeys, white face Capuchin monkeys, frogs, butterflies and at night Kinkajous. And if you are very fortunate you may even see the endangered Spider monkey, Ant eaters, Tayras, Sloths, Jaguarundi cat, White-lipped peccary pigs and the White nosed coatis.
Not only is Casa Rio Sierpe’s location poised for optimal wildlife observation it is also a perfect home base for a variety of activities from land to sea that are sure to keep even the most active vacationer busy. Most of these tours are given at no additional charge to our guest with their paid rental. When you come and visit us, included is a full time guide and housekeeper whose sole job is to make your vacation the most memorable, stress free, work free as possible any way that they can. They will give you private guided tours, carry your grocery bags, take you river fishing, clean the house, find fresh fruit, do your dishes and even get you a fresh coconut to drink at the beach. We have over 10 miles of hiking trails along with several kayaking trails that our resident onsite guide will personally guide you on, day or night, along the way pointing out hard to see wildlife that you would normally miss and introducing you to interesting flora and fauna. If you would like to go on a night tour, no problem, if you want to go to a rain forest waterfall, no problem, how about getting you some wild cilantro from the forest for that fresh Ceviche you’re going to make, they can do that to. Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach?
There are many other tours available at additional cost by independent tour operators that will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes
* The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a short but relatively steep hill at the end. Don’t worry we will transport your luggage and supplies for you. Guest considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be somewhat physically fit and who are adventurous & enjoy the outdoors.
*Travel times on the river by boat are estimates and will vary slightly depending the load & how much wildlife we stop to look at along the way

Car: Not Necessary

Casa Rio Sierpe is located among 2500 acres of private reserve and adjoins the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in the Osa Peninsula—one of the most beautiful and wild parts of this country and home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity.

THE OSA PENINSULA

Located in the south west of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. It is one of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled - it is only within the last 10 years that it has had road access - and consequently much of the Peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. At least half of the Osa's extensive tracts of rainforest and swamps are protected by Corcovado National Park, and Private Reserves. Its forests are home to endangered species such as Baird's tapir, the white-lipped peccary, the jaguars the America crocodiles, and the harpy eagle (only recently been re-sighted). It boasts the largest population of the endangered scarlet macaws in the country, and is the center of the very restricted distribution of the endangered Central American squirrel monkey. This small peninsula is host to almost half of Costa Rica's 860 species of birds (that is almost 5% of the world's species!), 140 species of mammals, and 117 species of reptiles and amphibians. Almost 750 species of trees have been cataloged in the area, more trees than in all of the North temperate regions of the world combined. Impressive credentials indeed! Per unit area, the Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity on earth. The National Geographic magazine described the Osa Peninsula as 'the most biologically intense place on earth'. This description is a reference to the incredible abundance of wildlife on the Osa Peninsula -not only in it's rainforests, but in it's surrounding marine environment as well. Botanically, the Osa Peninsula has strong affinities with that of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, and its unique forests contain more endemic plants and animals than in any other area of Central America. Climatically, the Osa is the wettest place on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, receiving up to 160 inches of rain annually. Some of the Osa Peninsula's landmarks are described below.

RIO SIERPE and the Terraba River valley

The Rio Sierpe and its watershed, the Dequis Valley, isolate the Osa Peninsula from the mainland. This substantial river is unusual in that it is tidal almost up to its source, the Sierpe Lagoon. The Rio Sierpe is roughly divisible into two wetland areas: the flooded forests of the upper Rio Sierpe basin, and the extensive mangrove swamps of its delta.

The upper Rio Sierpe wetland is virtually uninhabited, relatively unspoiled and it contains large areas of raffia palm swamp, flooded forest and lagoons. Fingers of high ground, thickly clad in rain forest, permeate this area.

The delta of the Rio Sierpe, which it shares with the Rio Terraba, is the most extensive area of mangrove swamp in Costa Rica and largest in Latin America (almost 50% of all the mangrove wetland of the country). This swamp is permeated by a maze of channels in which it is easy to become lost! The eight species of mangrove found here are some of the tallest in the world – red, black, grey, and tea mangroves being the most common varieties. The impressive mangroves provide a valuable coastal ecosystem to an abundance of avian, mammalian, reptilian and aquatic animals.

Birding enthusiasts come from all over the globe to experience the area’s phenomenal birdwatching opportunities. Both resident and migratory birds visit these swamps, which also boast two endemic hummingbird species: the mangrove hummingbird and the yellow-billed cotinga.

On the coastal fringe of this delta, near the mouth of the Rio Sierpe, lies Violin Island. Sir Francis Drake reputedly buried a large treasure here. The many attempts to find this treasure have met with no success. However, Violin Island has yielded many gold nuggets of one or more kilos in weight.

CAÑO ISLAND BIOLOGICAL RESERVE

Located 12 miles of the western coast of the Osa Peninsula, Caño Island is 300 hectares in area with 5,800 hectares of Sea included in the Reserve. While the Island itself is home to relatively few animals and plants, its surrounding waters abound with marine life: colourful reef fish, impressive schools of large pelagic fish, manta rays, sharks, turtles, whales and dolphins. Caño Island is second only to Coco Island in the quality of its diving in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica not only offers some of the best sport fishing in the world, it delivers as well. With over 44 line class records, 14 fly records, and 18 all-tackle records, the fishing experience here is nothing short of a bona fide phenomena ;Sailfish, Black marlin, Blue marlin,Yellow fin tuna,Albacore,Grouper,Pargo,Pomano,Dorado,Wahoo all had to be caught has given this land its claim to fame!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I was born and raised on the west Coast of Florida surrounded by water sports. 'Boat' was my first word (did not make my mom happy)...At the age of 10 we moved to a horse farm in Kentucky where we raised and trained saddle-bred horses. I briefly attended college and then served my country in the United States Marine Corp. I have always had a passion for the outdoors adventure and a love for all wild life, even the really mean ones! I am an avid sailor, hiker, surfer and fisherman. I have had many passions and loves in my life including our two cats but my greatest passion and love is my Cuban American wife. We have been married for almost 10 years! My wife was born and raised in Havana, Cuba. She attended college there and a little over 11 years ago she won a visa to move to the United States. She then moved to Long Beach, California where we met. Like myself, she shares a passion for traveling, outdoor activities, water sports & wild life. She is a good dancer and cook and she's a bit crazy when it comes to collecting sea shells,sand dollars and pretty rocks, she can never have enough! She also enjoys sharing her knowledge with others, specially kids. Her dream is to one day move to Costa Rica and teach English to the kids and adults at the local rural school. We currently live in California on our sailboat. I'm a Yacht Broker and my wife is an executive assistant to the CEO of a large company. We started building this home in 2011 and its been a long challenging build with many ups and downs but if it was easy then everyone would do it!

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
MY wife and I had plans to sail around the world on our sailboat for 4 years in 2008 but the slow down in the economy changed our plans. We both knew that we wanted a dream home outside of the USA but we weren't sure where. We met another sailor and bought a piece of property from him in Guanacaste, we bought sight unseen in a country that we had never been to, you have to have a little faith sometimes in your fellow man. We fell in love with Costa Rica and we loved Guanacaste enough that we built a small home. But we soon realized that Gunacaste was lacking for us, it was beautiful but not magical enough to build our forever dream home and there were not enough animals either!!!! We wanted to experience the true remoteness and wilderness of the Costa Rican rain forest the way it all used to be in all of her splendor. At the same time we wanted to be close to modern convenience and fellow people. So we wanted to be secluded in the purest form of nature but not isolated and we wanted to be close to the ocean as well. We soon realized that what we were looking for may no longer exist, it was going to be a difficult search. We found this little piece of paradise by accident, one trip down the river, one look at the view of the rain forest and the mountains, one experience with endangered Spider monkeys swinging over head (I still think the seller trained those monkeys somehow) and we were hooked! And our story continues...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are located on the Rio Sierpe among 2500 acres of rain forest reserve in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. Casa Rio Sierpe specializes in catering to only one set of guest at a time ensuring intimacy while providing resort amenities all in the comfort of a luxury home. Also included in your visit is a private guide and boat who will take you on many of the free included adventure tours.
