Casa Bambu is one of 4 rental houses in the Matapalo region of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. In order to experience all that Costa Rica has to offer, you really need to spend time on the Osa Peninsula. In 2005 we spent time in Puerto Jimenez. This time we wanted to be a little further off the grid. (Casa Bambu... More

We spent 3 nights in Lynn's wonderful Casa Bambu. The house is very cool and the grounds are full of flora and fauna. The monkeys would swing by, the blue butterfly, macaws... and the ocean right off the front yard. A bit of heaven. If it wasn't so far away from Seattle I would be back in a minute. Lynn,... More

Our group consisted of my husband and I - and our 4 children ranging in age from 7 - 16. I wasn't sure what to expect and was even surprised with myself for booking this vacation. In the past, I haven't been much of an outdoor person. Casa Linda and the Osa Peninsula has converted me. I loved every last... More

We stayed just shy of a week in mid-July and the Osa was spectacular and Casa Linda was all we expected and more. The stilted bamboo house was spacious, cool, and very well laid out. We were about 50 meters from the beach where we had 6-8' swells on a right point break and rarely had to share a wave.... More

Am a bit ambivalent about letting the secret out, but feel grateful to Lyn, William and others for the special experience that is Casa Bambu. It's very difficult to get off the beaten path these days, but Casa Bambu placed us square in the middle of one of the most special places in the world. Monkeys and macaws were regulars... More

We can not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Pina. It was even better than the web site depicted. We woke early to the sounds of the howler monkeys and then set out to explore - taking long walks, kayaking, swimming and more. Most afternoons were spent relaxing on the beach or on the stunning...

We stayed at Casa Pina from June 13-19th. It was wonderful. The description online and through emails was Lyn was spot on, so we knew just what to expect and it was exactly the kind of experience & location we were looking for. We spent every morning doing something fun & adventurous, and every afternoon lying in a hammock in... More

This may have been the best family vacation we have ever taken. 2 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 13. The wildlife in the yard was beyond belief. The Golfo Dulce was fantastic. We stayed in La Pina and can't wait to return. Pictures and descriptions do not do justice. Just go.

We recently returned from our second wonderful vacation at Casa Bambu. Everything their website shows is true and then some.... This is the perfect location in the midst of the rainforest, at the edge of the ocean. The house has all the necessities while staying in harmony with and not disturbing the surrounding natural beauty. The owners arrange for a... More

We stayed at Casa la Pina for a week in february, but would not choose Casa Bambu again. We are a family with 3 kids and we found especially the beach disappointing. It is VERY rocky - no matter the tide or were you go on the beach. It is nice for a quick swim or kayaking, but not suitable... More

Casabambu1, Owner at Casa Bambu Resort, responded to this review

We do recall the children of this family having a great time surfing, playing on the beach, etc. so were surprised to read these comments. However, we don’t want to respond to this point by point, as we understand that this place isn’t for everybody. Instead, we would refer readers to our multiple 5-star reviews (including many families with children),... More
