We had such a good time when we stayed at Casa Bambu! The owners are amazing and helpful and the staff is awesome. I cannot tell you enough how great this location is, my view was insane to look out over Pan Dulce Beach everyday. Thank you again, Lyn and Kirk

After a strong recommendation from a friend (who stated, I wouldn't send everyone here, but this place if for you!) we thankfully decided to stay at Casa Bambu. The first night we stayed at Casa Sonrisa which is a similarly designed home. But for younger children, Casa Bambu is better because all the bedrooms are on the same floor. (in... More

What a trip!!! We just returned after a week stay in Casa Sonrisa. It is the house furthest back in the property, but is only a quick walk to the beach. If you like monkeys, this is the house! The monkey trail runs right around the house, and we saw howlers, spiders, and chaupins. I also managed to grab pictures... More

What an incredible experience! They say don’t drive the road to the house at night. Unfortunately, we ended up having to do so and drove in total darkness. There are several one-lane bridges with little to no guard-rails and two rivers to drive through. After driving 45 min, we finally arrived. Our little Daihatsu 4WD had been rattled to its... More

Our family of four stayed at Casa Bambu over spring break this year. This was our first time to Casa Bambu and the Osa Peninsula. The house, location, and management of the property exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful, open air, lovely kitchen, porches where you can watch the sunrise, hear monkeys in the trees (as they have many... More

Very clean and well managed. Kirk and William were more than accommodating to all of our needs and went out of their way to ensure that our trip was fun and comfortable. We saw more wildlife on this property than anywhere else on the trip. Stayed in Casa Pina, Casa Bambu, and Casa Linda during our 9 night get away... More

We stayed at Casa Sonrisa over Xmas and had the perfect holiday. We were looking to escape the rat race and cold weather of London and enjoy some sun, solitude and wildlife.

I didn't think it was possible but we enjoyed our stay at Casa Linda even more than last time. For a start the roads there have greatly improved and there was hardly a pot hole to be found until the last section. We arrived in good time rather than in the dark and rain like our last journey, when we... More

We recently stayed at Casa Sonrisa and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It has many nice touches -good mattress, comfy furniture to lounge in on the great balcony overlooking the forest full of animals - and as we live in Costa Rica, we know it is not easy to keep things as nicely and well running as this. We particularly liked the... More
