Amazing little casita with well equipped kitchen and awesome gardens and pool. No need for ac as the breeze runs straight through and keeps it at a perfect temperature
The property is up a dirt road in Ojochal. There is a main house for the wonderful French Canadian owners and then about 6 individual cabins on beautiful grounds of a couple acres. Ours is a brand new (a few finishing touches still to do) cabin with two small bedrooms, a shower/toilet bathroom, and an open air kitchen dinette area. There are fans in all rooms, but no air conditioning, so it can get warm! There is a small pool where the guests tend to gather (mostly French Canadians as well with varying fluency in English) to cool off. You are on your own for meals, although one owner will prepare breakfasts or dinners by arrangement that are a special treat (French crepe meals). Towels are provided, but you are on your own to keep the cabin tidy. This is not a resort where all is done for you; more like a cabin/condo. This is mostly an expatriate community with quite a few restaurants and a market within 5-10 minutes. The Osa Peninsula is hot in general and hotter than normal while we were there, which made getting out and spending time hiking in nature a challenge for us and kept many birds out of sight as well. Just too darn hot & humid to really take advantage of all the natural beauty there was to see! We did have a huge iguana fall out of the tree right next to our cabin - not sure if it or we were more startled.
