Dear Lyn, Thank you so much for a little slice of paradise - it was our best vacation ever despite the constant rain. "Mucho Rain" and "Mucho Lodo" were William's constant refrains. William and the crew were exactly as you represented. He was an attentive but unobtrusive presence during our stay. They cooked several meals and made our stay perfect... More

We travel all over with our 2 young boys, Belize, Hawaii once a year, Mexico... and this trip to Casa Bambu was the best trip ever (ask the boys!)... the magic of a house made of bamboo and no "windows", to the sounds of the jungle, the visits from Scrappy (the Tapir that came to eat our fruit scraps everyday),...

Big world; short life - we'll never visit the same place twice. We're a family that travels, not holidaymakers, or so we thought until we first walked into Casa Bambu. Four years on we have now spent a total of eight weeks vacation in this fabulously unique jungle home. The yard is a pretty oval stretching down to the Golfo... More

What a wonderful experience!!! There was a monkey show almost everyday from our porch. The kids learned what life is like without all the technology. They really loved learning how to surf and discovering the waterfall pools to swim in. My favorite part was the sanctuary trip where we were "held" by the monkeys that will be reintroduced back into... More

I was invited to join my friends at Casa Bambu for four nights during their family vacation. Boy, am I glad I did! We were a total of three adults and two children (girls, 12 and 9). We all had a fantastic time staying at La Pina. Lyn and Kirk were gracious and helpful as were William the manager and... More

Our family of four (two children, ages 9 and 12), was travelling with a single adult friend. Casa Bambu was the perfect place for our moderately adventurous group to experience the Osa. We stayed at the La Pina house at Casa Bambu for four days & nights during the green season (first week of June), after two nights in Puerto... More

This was truly the most relaxing vacation we ever had. The natural beauty and simple living had a magical effect, which was heightened by the uniqueness of the house (we were in Casa Bambu, which faces the Golfa Dulce) and the unobtrusive but attentive owners and staff. Even though we didn't roam too far from the house, every moment was... More

Casa Pina is delightful and we all enjoyed it's unique style. The sights and sounds of the jungle were so intense and exciting and we all suffered happily from sensory overload. We melted into the ocean leaving winter very far away. Lyn and Kurt go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. Leda and Vicki prepared some delicious... More

Casa Bambu\Casa Linda is wonderful! Awake to the natural alam clock of the sight of a beautiful sunrise from your bed accompanied by the the the sounds of Howler monkeys and the rainforest. Leave your phone, computer, and TV behind ,you're off the grid with your electric needs amply supplied via the sun. It's only twenty five yards to a... More

We just returned from a glorious week stay in La Pina, our second time there. The house is so well designed...simple yet beautiful. The location is unbeatable. Wonderful trees and flowering shrubs all around, with a view of the ocean. We saw monkeys, coatis, a huge iguana (3 feet long!), an anteater, macaws, lizards,hummingbirds, and lots of birds...all from the... More
