  • great location and comfortable for a large group

    "We stayed at this rental home for 1 week, the last week of December into the first week of January. We had a group of 8 (four couples), and we had a great time. It was a comfortable place for everyone to retreat to their own private space (private room with queen bed), and then hang out together in the common areas. We cooked most of our meals together in the upstairs kitchen, which was fully stocked and had a lot of great open space, chairs and a couch to hang out. There is also another full kitchen downstairs too, but we didn't use that one as much. In the mornings, we sat on the outdoor couches and chairs upstairs and watched the birds. The property is a little more remote, so we saw a lot of wildlife just on the property. In terms of style- this house has a lot of charm. We were looking for a property with more local 'flair' as opposed to a property with standard stainless steel finishes and granite countertops. The house has a lot of amenities and features, but you still feel like you are living in a house more aligned with the style of other local properties. The only amenities this property did not have are air conditioning, and reliable hot water- but that seems to be a common theme for most homes on the peninsula. There were a lot of fans in the house, so that worked great. One of the features we loved was that the kitchens were open to the outdoors, so you can view and hear wildlife while you are spending time together in the common spaces. There was a large mosquito net curtain for the upstairs kitchen that we could close if we wanted to, which was a nice option, particularly at night. In terms of the management- the owners, Blondie and Michael, were extremely helpful getting us settled when we arrived. The caretaker lives right next door, so he was also able to help us with anything once we arrived that week. Also, in addition to this- Blondie was a huge help in advance of the trip- helping me to make our group's rental car reservations and answering all of my questions quickly over email. In terms of location- this property is centrally located to explore the entire Osa Peninsula. It's a short drive into town to Puerto Jimenez, which has the biggest grocery store and great options for restaurants and booking tours. It's also within driving distance for Corcovado tours (we hired a guide one day, drove and hiked into the park from the southern side), and it's also driving distance to Drake Bay. A great place to stay and highly recommended!"

  • Awesome House and Location

    "We stayed here last March and liked it so much we came back in July! The house is very comfortable with a short walk to the beach and surf. We saw an incredible amount of bird life along with monkeys and other jungle animals. The location provides both a beach sunrise and a mountain sunset view. We will stay here again!"

  • Large, beautiful property on the beach

    "The house is special! We loved the pool, the open kitchen and walking out onto an incredibly beautiful beach with coffee in the morning and a cocktail at sunset. The beach is long in both directions, we never saw a sole felt like we were alone out there. You are far down on the tip of the peninsula, enough so when on the beach at sunset you can see it set both east and west. You look out to the mainland. The property is very well taken care of, even though you are in nature its well manicured and beautiful. You will feel very at home. Bring lots of bug spray and ant spray and you will be in heaven. There are great adventures in short car rides if you are up for it. The area is incredible for wild life, waterfalls, and nature seeking."
