  • 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"

  • Quiet Paradise

    "My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in April at Kris' place. The cabin was clean and perfect! It had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay while in Zancudo. The screened in patio was my fave! hammocks and fans, an our door table. PERFECT! I was covered in bug bites by the time we got here so that was a nice way to spend time reading outside and not get eaten alive. The beach is steps away and the sand and water are beautiful. Kris has bikes you can use to get around town, there is only one road so that is all you need. She helped us arrange horseback riding trips, wildlife rescue trips and joined us for dinner one evening at our request because she was just so lovely. Kris made us feel right at home, from introducing us to her friends to inviting us to community yoga and setting me up with one lady to rent paddle boards to do a sunrise dolphin tour. We loved everything about our time in Zancudo, it is very, very relaxed here so don't show up prepared to cram a lot in every day. Bring a book, or borrow one from the lending library in the cabin, get a massage, listen to birds and meet the neighbours. We can't wait to go back!"

  • 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"

  • Magic on the Osa Peninsula

    "We loved our time at Casa Sonrisa! Because this particular house sits back a bit on the hill, I think we saw even more wildlife than those closer to the beach although the view of the Golfo Dulce was beautiful too. Case Sonrisa backs up to an area that could almost be considered a monkey playground! We saw 4 types of monkeys and were given an especially funny show by the spider monkeys! The house was very comfortable and we were thankful that William was able to provide an extra mattress and mosquito net for one of our kids. The kitchen was beautifully outfitted with everything needed for a 4 day stay. I am glad that we shopped in town and brought so much food with us from Pavones because the road to Puerto Jimenez was awful and I wouldn't have wanted to drive it any more than needed. The thunder and lightening storms were amazing to watch from the open area living space! We surfed morning and evening sessions and loved that we could just walk to Playa Pan Dulce and then follow trails to other breaks. I got some of my favorite surfing pictures of our whole time in Costa Rica one evening. The houses are fit with radios that can contact the owners, William and several of the local restaurants. This came in especially handy when one of our kids left his insulin pack at Lapa Rios. We were able to call around and locate the pack and then go pick it up right away! We will definitely come back and stay again!"
