  • Little piece of paradise

    "Staying in this wonderful house was an experience we'll remember forever. A large and open house with a lovely pool, right in the heart of the forest. And the caretakers, Grace and Juan, really made it special - Grace's cooking was a real treat and nice not to have to cook for ourselves all the time, and Juan was a great guide to the forest nearby. (We asked Adrian for a shopping list before we went which was helpful - and might be a good thing to provide to all guests) There is lots of wildlife walking right by the house - we saw a laughing falcon take a (harmless) snake just below the house, a Tayra climbing a tree, macaws, toucans and lots of hummingbirds and butterflies - even a turtle on the beach! Some of the fixtures and fittings (window latches, wardrobe doors) have taken a little bit of a beating from the jungle, but more than compensated for by the wonderful surroundings. And you should be aware that the sound of the ocean can be quite loud, which didn't bother us - but might be a consideration for others. I'd recommend a visit to Estacion Piro just up the road, and ask Juan to take you to the other part of Adrian's estate - which you might not find by yourself and contains some amazing trees. Really a nature lovers paradise and the pool was a real treat."

  • Amazing experience!

    "We stayed with our 4 kids 4 days and I can tell you it was the best part of our 2 weeks trip through Costa Rica. The location and the house itself are beautiful. We will recommend this house to anybody."

  • Things that make you go hmmm

    "After spending the last three years exploring C.R with my extended family it was time to hit the Osa. I have had Life's a Wave on my radar for years. Here is what I found..... 1.THE HOUSE&PROPERTY... Are beautiful!! The house is set up perfectly for our group of 7. We never got in each others way and the house was very comfortable. The wood in C.R is beautiful and this house shows you that. The dining room table especially. The beds are all very comfortable and the fans did there job to keep most of us cool at night. We did have a fan break on us and it was never replaced so that was a bit of a bummer. You are in the jungle so it very hot and humid and once the sun goes down so does the breeze. My only complaint is the light over the table. It is very low so during our nightly game of hearts you are fighting the bugs. Maybe get a higher light with a fan? That would have made our nights a lot more comfortable. My daily walks around the property revealed something new almost daily. Lastly, the pool is awesome. Great for lounging around and watching the Macaw's do their thing. 2. THE BEACH...This was a big disappointment for our family. We are not a surfing family but we love the beach. I was under the impression that this was a surfing/swimming beach. It is Not. It is a surfing beach only. I use the word beach loosely as it is made up mostly of big piles of rocks with a few slivers of sand. It is however a very beautiful beach. The waves are huge and awesome and the views are simply breathtaking. There are a few other beaches nearby but I would say you need to be a very strong swimmer to use them as the rip tide is very strong. We did find lots of critters in the tide pools so that was fun for me and the kids. If you are looking for a beach to take a stroll, take a swim, and head back to pool this is not your beach. Playa Platanares is what you a looking for. 3. THE WILDLIFE.... Is good. We did see all four types of monkeys, a sloth, a basilisk lizard, and lots and lots of birds. The Macaw's steal the show. They are present every day and very fun to watch zip through the trees and devour the almonds. We didn't see any ground animals. I think all the neighborhood dogs keep them away for the most part. All and all a great nature experience. 4. OTHER NOTES... The animal rescue center is worth the trip. Carol is an amazing women with so much passion for wildlife. And sweetie pie will melt your heart. NOTE: The waterfalls are dry during the dry season."
