Wonderful property on the water. It was as advertised and beautiful. The road from the airport was in good shape. The last mile was a bit rough and I appreciated having 4WD. We had trouble finding the home initially. Perhaps I missed the written directions. We loved the layout of the home and enjoyed having Aurora cook for us. It might be helpful to have a standard shopping list created as we were not sure what exactly we needed to purchase. Once we figured out the groceries, it was a pleasure having meals taken care of by Aurora. Isaac was on site and helpful particularly in procuring fish one night. The house was great to hang out in. I recommend bringing any cards, games you might want as there were not any at the home. Reading lamps in the living room would also be a nice addition. The weather was warm (90) but the nights with a fan were OK. We did not have a lot of bugs. Overall, this was a fantastic place and we would visit again.
A Villa in the Costa Rican Paradise
There is so much to say. First and foremost the property is breathtaking both in terms of the views as well as the wildlife. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The owner and property manager were very responsive to our inquiries arranging for everything once we reached the villa. We arranged for our own local transport from the Puerto Jiménez Airport.
We are a bit food oriented so I will start with that. You will need to purchase all of your own food in Puerto Jiménez at the central market before heading to the villa. There is nowhere to buy food nearby without a pricey taxi ride back into town. We spent over a thousand dollars for food for 7 people for 7 days and it was not enough. Fortunately, the property manager arranged a deep-sea fishing trip which augmented our rations with a bunch of delicious red snapper. The property manager also arranged for a cook to prepare our meals every day at additional cost. We didn't have a rental car and due to the intermittent electricity for the refrigerator and freezer (the villa is entirely solar) I'm not sure I have a solution for food other than making periodic trips back into town. Make sure you get plenty of rice and beans. The frozen chicken was good. Stay away from fresh beef, chicken or pork.
The local beach Playa del Dulce is a surfer’s paradise. That said the waves can be large and there are riptides so be careful. The same with the Backwash immediately behind the villa.
The property manager arranged a deep-sea fishing trip which was great. I might suggest boarding and offloading from a pier in Puerto Jiménez as there are no piers for safe boarding near the villa.
The property manager also arranged a jungle walk in Corcovado National Park. It was a great hike but about 17 km round-trip so make sure you are prepared for an all-day adventure.
I would definitely visit this villa again. It's a bit off the beaten path but if you are adventurous it is a trip you will always remember.
Thank you Jini for your review.
The solar system is now working a 100% as we aquire new batteries.
I always recommend to rent a car in Puerto Jimenez as with a car you can maximize your experience in the area.
As for the food, trying fresh fish or shrimps upon availability is also recommended.
I hope to see you back in Osamarmaris, as we enjoyed having you at the house.
A Nature Lover's Dream
Stunning property in the middle of a biodiverse rainforest. Wonderful main house for cooking, dining, and relaxing while watching whales and the wildlife that travels through the front yard. We truly enjoyed our stayed at Casa Marmaris. Thank you to Isaac and Desi for taking such good care of us!
This was our second trip to Cabo Matapalo and we still were in awe. The open air, off the grid house was the perfect mix of nature and comfort. We were woken up each morning by the sounds of howlers and the sunrise off the Golfo dulce. The agouti in the yard, toucans and macaws overhead, and troupes of spider and capuchin monkeys gave us a window into the raw beauty of the Osa peninsula. The heat does get intense, and it can make nights a little tough, but late night dips in the pool were a quick way to find some reprieve. You have a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck, however access to the beach entails a quick 5 minute walk down the road. Isaac, the house keeper, spoke excellent English and was always attentive to our needs. He helped us arrange mouthwatering dinners comprised of casado (tipico meals) and found us locally caught, fresh off the boat tuna. He was never more than a shout away for any of our needs. Highly recommended, we are always sad to leave this area.
Ps- visit Martina’s on Friday night for local crafts, homemade ice cream, and delicious food. And go see Andy down the road for a highly informative and laughter filled tour at Everday Adventures.
Great Family Vacation for a True Getaway
The sound of the beach was amazing the food prepared for us was delicious and it was just so peaceful. The pictures online do not do it justice. Even more beautiful in person. Our family of 6, my husband and 4 kids ages 16 to 8 enjoyed it even with No TV and spending real quality time together. It's definitely a true getaway. I do wish the weather was a little cooler at night. Our best vacation yet.
Tack vare sin närhet till Corcovado National Park, är Matapalo's sprudlande vilda liv inom räckhåll. You'll se papegojor flyger över huvudet, 4 typer av apor som bebor Costa Rica går genom fastigheten eller om du går ut på en promenad.
Beläget nära Matapalo, är Corcovado National Park den största och enda tropiska primärlåglandsregnskog i världen - hem till apor, Dantas och jaguarer. National Geographic har kallat det "den mest biologiskt intensiva plats på jorden i form av biologisk mångfald"
Puerto Jimenez. Denna största staden i Osa halvön regionen ligger 45 minuter med bil till Matapalo (det är den närmaste staden finns). Puerto Jimenez är en av portarna till Corcovado National Park, varifrån många utflykter kan ordnas, och där leveranser kan hittas. I Puerto Jimenez hittar ni närmaste sjukhus, flygplatser, snabbköp och bensinstation.
Även om du vill äta ut eller ta en drink och du har en bil, kan du gå till Lapa Rios Hotel, Bosque del Cabo Hotel, Encanta La Vida Lodge eller Martina's Bar.
