  • Things that make you go hmmm

    "After spending the last three years exploring C.R with my extended family it was time to hit the Osa. I have had Life's a Wave on my radar for years. Here is what I found..... 1.THE HOUSE&PROPERTY... Are beautiful!! The house is set up perfectly for our group of 7. We never got in each others way and the house was very comfortable. The wood in C.R is beautiful and this house shows you that. The dining room table especially. The beds are all very comfortable and the fans did there job to keep most of us cool at night. We did have a fan break on us and it was never replaced so that was a bit of a bummer. You are in the jungle so it very hot and humid and once the sun goes down so does the breeze. My only complaint is the light over the table. It is very low so during our nightly game of hearts you are fighting the bugs. Maybe get a higher light with a fan? That would have made our nights a lot more comfortable. My daily walks around the property revealed something new almost daily. Lastly, the pool is awesome. Great for lounging around and watching the Macaw's do their thing. 2. THE BEACH...This was a big disappointment for our family. We are not a surfing family but we love the beach. I was under the impression that this was a surfing/swimming beach. It is Not. It is a surfing beach only. I use the word beach loosely as it is made up mostly of big piles of rocks with a few slivers of sand. It is however a very beautiful beach. The waves are huge and awesome and the views are simply breathtaking. There are a few other beaches nearby but I would say you need to be a very strong swimmer to use them as the rip tide is very strong. We did find lots of critters in the tide pools so that was fun for me and the kids. If you are looking for a beach to take a stroll, take a swim, and head back to pool this is not your beach. Playa Platanares is what you a looking for. 3. THE WILDLIFE.... Is good. We did see all four types of monkeys, a sloth, a basilisk lizard, and lots and lots of birds. The Macaw's steal the show. They are present every day and very fun to watch zip through the trees and devour the almonds. We didn't see any ground animals. I think all the neighborhood dogs keep them away for the most part. All and all a great nature experience. 4. OTHER NOTES... The animal rescue center is worth the trip. Carol is an amazing women with so much passion for wildlife. And sweetie pie will melt your heart. NOTE: The waterfalls are dry during the dry season."

  • Fabulous house

    "My family of 8 stayed in the Casa Capuchin in March, 2016. We were a bit nervous, because we had never rented out of the country. This house is everything and more as described. We had a wonderful time and Alex was so very attentive to our needs. We missed our plane flight and he arranged to have everyone picked up and cars delivered to the house. When you walk in the door , you feel as if you are on a scenic overlook of the most spectacular scene that you could ever see. The house has a wonderful maid service, is ultra comfortable, and is in a great location. You can walk to all the restaurants. The beach needs to be driven particularly when it is hot, however there is an easy bus that you can catch. The monkeys visited us for sure and we heard howling monkeys as well. We would love to come back!"

  • Wonderful

    "Stayed for a week in Dec. Claudia is a very gracious host, with a wealth of local knowledge and a kind heart. Her place is very clean and well appointed, and she is always available for assistance, yet thoroughly respects her guests privacy. We were a family of five but felt like a family of six after adding Claudia to the list. Excellent host. The house itself was great, and we all fit quite comfortably. The kitchen was a blessing as restaurants were a drive. The beach, however, was about a two minute walk away and was absolutely amazing. The tranquility of her property was unsurpassed. Thank you Claudia for providing us with a base for creating family memories that will last a lifetime. We hope to see you again soon."

  • Excelente lugar, recomendado al 100%.

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Excelente lugar e instalaciones. La única recomendación es que no enciendan el AC cuando hacen limpieza, para que cuando uno llega de la playa o alrededores, no sienta un cambio de temperatura tan fuerte."
