I had been to the Osa once before but this trip was even better than last time. Casa Bambu, Casa Linda, Casa Pina and Casa Sonrisa were all rented out by our friends. This is the perfect group vacation area. The beaches are steps away and the houses take full advantage of the environment. Lynn helped me set up the... More

For me the best: amazing wildlife, beautiful beach and country, breezy lovely houses Less good: no noise privacy AT ALL, uncomfortable beds and lousy pillows-bring your own if you are particular (the kids didn’t care). Also we were a little thick headed. There is absolutely no store of any kind anywhere nearby. You have to either go back to Puerto... More

Thanks for taking the time to write this thorough review. We are glad that overall you enjoyed your visit with us. There are a couple of points we would like to respond to and clarify. 1. It is accurate that the nearest grocery stores are in Puerto Jimenez, about 30 – 40 minutes away. This is clearly stated on the... More

We had six adults and seven kids ages 12-16 in Casa Linda and Casa Bambu for an amazing week . This is not club med, so if you're looking for fancy then go elsewhere . But if you're willing to rough it a bit then you will be rewarded. I loved: Waking up to the howlers and the surf to... More

Our family of eight had a wonderful stay at Casa Linda in July. It's a true off-the-grid eco lodge, but is so comfortable and well-equipped that you really get the best of both worlds. Beds were comfy and clean and the kitchen has everything you need for a gourmet meal. The solar fridge is large and keeps everything cool. We... More

We came 9 years ago and this trip was just as spectacular. The owners of this beach house are extremely helpful and helped arrange everything we needed. The property manager William took my husband surf fishing and us on a guided hike in Corcovado natl park. His wife Leda is an amazing cook and came to the house to prepare... More

This was my third visit. Took my brother down for 8 nights and it was fantastic as always. We cooked in for most meals but defiantly took advantage of the offerings at Martina’s, Lapa Rios, and Encanta. We could see all four types of monkeys from the porch, lapas, turtals in the water almost every day, Etc. The whole week... More

My husband and I spent four days of our honeymoon at Casa Sonrisa. The whole experience was fantastic. The owners, Lyn and Kirk, were accessible and helpful throughout the booking process and our stay. The caretaker William was friendly and knowledgable and very patient with our limited Spanish. The grounds are full of wildlife and the beach is picturesque, with... More

My husband and two children,13 & 11, spent a week at Casa Sonrisa this April. The house was really lovely and comfortable. The location is nice and remote, yet accessible to town, and walking distance to a restaurant or two. We never tired of watching the monkeys, listening to the howlers or feeding the coati our papaya scraps. The outdoor... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful Casa. Lyn's help in planning the trip was invaluable.  Casa Piña(one of Casa Bambu 's houses) was one of the highlights of our trip. We can't speak highly enough of William and his family. He is such a kind soul. We did the waterfall hike with William which our kids loved.  The meals Olivia... More

We spent 10 days in Casa Sonrisa, one of the 4 homes Casa Bambu offers. Casa Sonrisa is the furthest from the beach, a short 3 minute walk, but offers the best exposure to the wildlife. To everyones delight, we had 3 Capuchin monkeys in a kitchen one day, while coati and mara maras really enjoyed our compost pile. House... More
