Great little gem
Loved staying at this place in the Osa Peninsula. It was great to be fully immersed in Costa Rica and the jungle; as you have animals all around you. Beach was a short walk from the house. Would recommend this spot to anyone else looking at staying in Costa Rica.
Thanks Rachel. Happy to share the jungle experience with you.
Excellent value, great service, owner and property manager.
A really cute place right in front of the beach and next door to one of the only restaurants in the area. You will be treated to tapas (macaws), tucans and monkeys (be sure to put your food in the monkey proof cage!!) Its a 10 minute ride to the world famous Matapalo surf break. Beware tho, that road requires 4WD usually and is very very very bumpy. Caveat emptor.
The Internet service was a little under powered and there was no good cellular signal available, which made it difficult for me to conduct business. The owner indicated he is upgrading the WiFi so I expect the speed issue will be resolved shortly.
Beautiful cabin with unique open-wall setup, so that it feels like you're living half outdoors, but without the many inconveniences of camping. Has a huge fridge and well-stocked kitchen. Abundant monkey-sightings, great (though small) swimming pool. Owner (John) and property manager (Oscar) were incredibly helpful, as were other members of Oscar's family. Only downsides were (i) the mosquitoes at night, though they weren't overwhelming; and (ii) the occasional loud music at night from the nearby bar. But even taking those into account, this place deserves more than 5 stars.
Beautiful, Adventurous, & Unforgettable
Our family of 5 stayed at the relaxing open aired home. We were immediately welcomed by the friendly and extremely helpful caretaker Oscar. He and his family made all kinds of fresh juices and authentic Costa Rican treats for us every night. He ended up being so helpful with setting up outside excursions and going to town if we needed anything. We saw macaws, monkeys, and other types of animals right from the “windows” of the house. The pool was great for late night swims was very clean as well. The only thing we would suggest is having new pots, pans, silverware, and some spices to help make cooking an easier task.
Glad you enjoyed yourselves, and took advantage of the added service our caretaker Oscar provides. Definitely a bonus beyond just having a pool at a beachfront rental in the jungle.
And thanks for the tip on adding amenities in the kitchen.
Hope to see you and your family again!
The Real Jungle Experience!
"Dull" will never be a word my girlfriend or I will use to describe this trip.
The house is simple, yet perfect for the type of setting you are in. Pictures and this review doesn't really do it the justice it deserves. Part of the beauty of this place, besides the obvious of just being in that type of environment, is the feeling it leaves you with. I know this place will be connected with us forever. There is no other alarm clock quite like the howler monkeys and macaws above you in the trees in the mornings. Also, the pool was SUPER clutch. After a day out in the jungle hiking around and exploring or walking the beach and climbing the rocks, dodging all the crabs along the shoreline up to Pan Dulce, the pool was the perfect way to unwind. Sitting, eating, reading a book with it dumping rain and seeing the lightning light up the jungle at night was pretty awesome too.
All in all, we had an awesome trip, so many good memories. Oscar was beyond gracious and helpful in his hospitality and making sure we had our needs taken care of. The property is amazing for those wanting to experience the authentic jungle atmosphere. The place makes you forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It forces you to put your phone down so you truly can appreciate the beauty surrounding you and will leave you with memories and stories that will last a lifetime
Thank you Oscar! Thank you John!
We'll call it 4.75 stars. We would have rated 5 stars except the instant hot water heater was not working, so we had a week of cold showers. With it being hot, I found that rather refreshing, my wife, not so much. :) Other than that, incredible! This is not your typical resort experience. This is an authentic, by the ocean, in the beautiful jungle, totally private, constant wildlife, off the grid, open air experience. Just can't express how amazing the wildlife is! Oscar, our caretaker, was incredible, often sharing produce he gathered right there on the property. The personal pool was so refreshing and was used as much as sitting by the ocean. Even though the house is open, it was very clean, well kept, and free of bugs (which still amazes us)! We were there Feb 16-23, so maybe it was the time of year? However, not a single mosquito was seen (or felt) the entire week. The nearby restaurant was excellent and is a recommended visit especially on Friday nights (local artisans set up a market there with homemade articles, food, etc.) Recommend flying from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez. It's only a 50 minute flight and the house is about a half hour from the PJ airport. If renting a car, you MUST rent a 4X4! Trust me, I thought the local Alamo rep was taking us for a ride when he laughed at our "economy car" that we had reserved. He was not. You drive through a small creek getting to the house and that is very common when driving to Carate Beach or on other jungle/mountain roads. We wish we could have remembered a little more Spanish from our school days, but everyone we met was very kind and gracious. All in all, just an incredible stay in a natural paradise!
So glad you got to experience this wonderful spot.
THe dry season is best for mosquitos. Although, most months there is little problem. And yes, Oscar is a true gem, adding to the visit for any of our guests. Come back any time!
PS Sorry the hot water wasn't working. I think we just bought a new one.
