  • Awsome time

    "Terry and Andy: Happy New Year. Thank you again for your hospitality. We had an awesome time. Everything was as described in your listing. The house was great, the property was perfect and we can not say enough about the wildlife. The sights and sounds were incredible. You were extremely helpful sharing your local knowledge of the area. If you are into nature and a laid back atmosphere, then this is the place to stay. Next time we come we will be sure and schedule a visit to the park with you."

  • Perfect vacation for adventure seekers!

    "We love Tres Palmas! This was our second trip. On both occasions we traveled with another family. This time our group was 4 adults and 5 kids (ages 7-12). This place is not easy to get to, but that is part of the charm. It is truly luxurious, and is such a special place to come "home" to after a long day exploring the HOT jungle, or surfing, horseback riding, ziplining, kayaking, tree climbing, or just a day at the beach! The kids were in the infinity pool at sunrise and pretty much any time we weren't out adventuring! Marvin, Yerlin, and their family are just incredible hosts. They think of everything. We had them shop for us and prepare and clean up all the meals and it is well worth it! Such a treat to not have to worry about feeding everyone and they do a great job of catering to everyone's needs - we had 2 vegetarians in our group and they always made extra veggie side dishes etc. The food is fresh and delicious. Definitely have them make you their ceviche and the empanadas - just 2 of our favorites. The wildlife is plentiful and we saw much of it just lounging at the house. The tours that Brad (the property manager) helped us set up were amazing! We were very busy and active while we were there, but you could easily do much less than we did and still have a wonderful time. Brad was very helpful to work with and we really appreciate all the effort he went to. One of the best vacations we have ever had! We were sad to leave, and hope to be lucky enough to return again!"

  • Amazing family vacation!

    "This was the perfect location for our family to relax, explore, and get away from it all. With four species of monkeys and scarlet macaws right outside the doorstep, we would've been very happy staying around the house and exploring the immediate area, but we also loved all our big adventures -- horseback riding, hiking in Corcovado, zip lining were all unforgettable. Surfing lessons with Pollo were tons of fun for novices like us (ages 9 to 49). The house is large and comfortable. It was a nice break to have Leda prepare dinner for us two nights. Her cooking is superb. Nothing could've prepared us for the sound of the howler monkeys or the delight of watching a mother spider monkey swinging through the trees with her baby on her back. A few minor set backs (sunburn, hiking blisters, bat flying in the house, etc.) did nothing to dampen our delight. Lynn and Kirk gave us great information in advance and everything was as promised."

  • A Spring Break to Remember - Where the Jungle meets the Sea

    "My 12 year old son and I and another family of 4 (2 boys aged 12 and 9) had the most wonderful vacation at this house this past Spring Break. The house is spacious and comfortable, perched high above a wild stretch of Pacific coast. It feels luxurious in an authentic Costa Rican way. It's hard to know where to start. We packed a lot into each day and yet felt totally relaxed and rested when we got home. We hired a wonderful local guide, Nito, to hike both on and near this property and in Corcovado. He made our trip. Not only did we see a lot more than we would have without him, he had a vast knowledge of the ecology of the area and the kids and adults learned a lot. He has also perfected the art of taking a photo with an iPhone 6 through the lens of his swarovsky telescope. I have great photos! Things I recommend: Get up before dawn to catch sunrise and animals on the beach; take a glass of wine down to the beach at sunset (this is NOT a swimming beach. It is beautiful and wild and very powerful so always watch the kids); ask Grace to cook local dishes; ask Juan to take you on a night hike (we had an encounter with a Fer-de-lance that the kids will remember for life ;=); hire a local fisherman to take you out on Golfo Dulce to fish and get up close and personal with dolphins, go to the nearby eco lodges and enjoy cocktails and wifi once or twice, go zip lining through the forest; visit a coco plantation; sleep with the doors and windows wide open to hear the ocean and the wildlife; if you have kids or even if you don't, keep a list each day of all the birds and animals that you see and if you can't identify something look it up in the books at the house each evening. The boys really got into to doing this and argued over who was going to write them all in the owner's book to record wildlife sightings. I could go on and on. This was the perfect vacation. Family, friends, adventure, comfort, amazing wildlife and unspoiled beauty. The owner of this property was extremely helpful and his tips and advice contributed greatly to the success of our vacation. The Osa Peninsular is a very special place. My son and I can't wait to go back."
