  • My home away from home

    "There is so much to say about this magical house and property. For the last 10years my family of 5 have been going down to Matapalo and staying in houses nearby. 8 years ago we found Casa Dulce and never looked back. I truly feel at my home here and feel empty not being there 24/7. My wife and I have watched our children grow up in the house and feel so lucky to have found it. The owner has become a close friend of the family and we love our time at Dulce when he is there. Eric the caretaker is very attentive to your needs and will help out in anyway needed. I wish I could keep this place al to myself but realize everyone should experience Casa Dulce"

  • 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."

  • Amazing Experience at Playa Lapa

    "Our family spent 9 amazing days at play Lapa. The house is situated perfectly between the jungle and the beach. Every morning, and evening, the various types of monkeys would visit the mango trees on the property. We'd sit and watch them take one bite of the mango and toss it to the ground. The Macaws squawked at one another in the surrounding trees. We'd see as many as 30 macaws flying overhead at once. The beach was a bit rough but swim-able at low tied. The kids played in the waves daily. We'd visit the neighboring lodges and hike though the jungle in search of howler monkeys. The accommodation were perfect for our family. It gave us a chance to disconnect from the reality of daily job and responsibilities and focus on one another and nature. This was a wonderful experience and we are already planning our return."

  • Great place to call our home while visiting Pavones. Had a great time, can't wait to return!

    "The property is a 2 BR/ 1 BA , with a fully functional kitchen that includes a fridge/freezer combo, gas stove, microwave. Oh, and a coffee pot. A must have to enjoy the delicious coffee from local super markets. The A/C is very nice during the day as it does get quite warm. The place has a washer and dryer as well. "Pavones Paradise" is a great place to stay if you or your group is looking to see Costa Rica beach culture at its finest, hear and see a wide variety of frogs, monkeys, birds and insects while drinking your coffee with breakfast or in the evening with a nice drink relaxing in one of the two hammocks provided. Yes, they have Toucans. I got to see one during our last days there, so cool. The nearest grocery store is about 15 minutes away. The local restaurants "Soda's" are a great deal for breakfast and "Casado's" for lunch and Dinner, and are also not too far from the home. The owners carolina and Les were amazing hosts. They were both very helpful when asked about the local cuisine and things to do in the area. The home was perfect for our stay! The only issue we had was that the shower head leaked. We let Carolina know, and she came to the home the same day and had it taken care of for us. Great service, thanks so much for everything! For the surfers... There are two surf shops in town. We rented boards from "Pavones Surf Shop" . Go here! His name is Randy Walker, he is the Owner/ Shaper. I rented a 6' 6" epoxy thruster for $15/ day + $100 deposit, and my friend got an epoxy 5 fin short board for $15/ day + $100 refundable deposit (boards are in new/ like new condition, so the deposit was expected. We both really enjoyed the boards And scored Some fantastic surf the five days we stayed there. Randy is a a wealth of knowledge when it comes to boards, if your just beginning or your looking to test the waters with a new board shape or fin set up, Randy's got a board for you! Till next time, Pura Vida! -Zach and Alex"
