On three acres of jungle and gardens, with 50 meters of beachfront, this home, accompanying gardens, pool and fully equiped beach campsite is a gem.
We are set up for 4 guests, in two double beds, in the two bedrooms. Beyond that, it is an additonal $20 per day to bring in more beds and bedding. We can accomodate up to eight in the main house, and two more at our beach site. The beach campsite has a custom tent, with two single beds (or one double bed), with kitchen set up, and separate bath area, is $100 per night as a separate rental, or $80 in conjunction with the main house. Excellent choice for two people..
Finca Sombrero y Camisas offers an alternative to a full-service lodge.
Comfortable, yet simple, this beautiful beachfront home is off the beaten trail.
Wake up to howler monkeys and enjoy sunrise across the Golfo Dulce from the pristine beachfront, as you sip your morning coffee. Scarlet macaws fly overhead in pairs. Toucans swoop through the yard. As many as four types of monkeys have seen spotted on the property in one day. Spider and squirrel monkeys fly overhead from tree to tree, and howlers and white face monkeys pass through here as well. And if you are lucky, you will spot the occasional sloth.
There is something here for everyone: waterfall hikes and repelling, tree canopy tours, horseback riding, bird watching, yoga classes and surf lessons from locals. It's private and peaceful, yet walking distance to a handful of Mato Palo surf breaks.
Great for families and guests of all ages.
Curl up in a hammock, or hang at the pool, and enjoy nature all around you. Eat bananas, coconuts, papayas, mangos and pineapples, depending on the season, that you have picked or our caretaker brings from the garden. And if you don't feel like cooking, there is a great restaurant within walking distance. A cook is available as well, if desired.

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: I have been traveling in Latin America since my teens, starting in Baja California, all the way to the tip of South America. Found this special place in the early 90's, and made it my 2nd home.
Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
Surf brought me here. But when I bought it I had already spent some time, and gotten to know the area. The wildlife, the beach, the community of Ticos and international community, and the step out of time, all are part of why I am here. And did i mention the MONKEYS?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are on the beach, and in the jungle. Caretaker and his family are also a BIG plus- convenient access to town and amenities, without renting a car or driving. As well as transportation, we offer a guide, cook, coordination of tours, and other services to make your vacation the best! DRIVING DIRECTIONS: We are near the tip of the Osa Peninsula, 10+ miles south of Puerto Jimenez, on Hiway 245, a gravel road. Puerto Jimenez is a 45 minute plane flight from San Jose, on either Nature Air or SANSA. Taxis can take you from town to our property, or you can drive, with a rental car. There is a small river to cross, which is passable most of the year, except during the heavy rainy season, October-November. When you cross the small stream, about 10 miles south of town, you will see Ojo del Mar Lodge on the left, and we are the next driveway, with our sign at the entrance- Finca Sombrero y Camisas. Across the road is Escuela Carbonera. If you get to Buena Esperanza Bar you have gone a little too far. We can also arrange to pick you up in town, and take you shopping before coming out to the property.
