  • 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."

  • Paradise

    "Casa Dulce is a gem. We loved everything about our time there. After stocking up in Puerto Jimenez we were set for lounging in hammocks, playing in the surf, horseshoes, ping pong, dancing at Martina's and more hammock time. The wildlife is replescent with a glorious variety of colors, songs and movement. Getting our coconuts harvested by the local monkeys ( when they were accidentally dropped) was only one of the many gifts that was offered to us from Cabo Matapalo."

  • 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."

  • A House to Fall in Love With

    "This is a truly unique house. A blend of atmosphere, materials, decoration, structure, views and solitary that you can't really explain in words, but when you eventually leave it, you feel a little heart broken."
