Having visited over 100 different countries, predominantly for nature, I can honestly say this has to be the best ever. Walking up the stream waist height in clear water, watching the shimmering blue of the giant morph butterflies and ending up at a swimming hole next to a waterfall.
Richard the Manager was brilliant with all his advice, philosophy on life and was around if needed, but left you alone where you felt the peaceful solitude of this magical place.
Lying in your hammock or on the day bed the nature you see is amazing.
Walking to your private beach at Pan Dulce, you see even more nature on a 10 minute walk.
I was worried about writing this review, as words cannot do it justice.
Just go here, and you will come back mesmerized
I love living in NYC but when I travel I prefer to do something TOTALLY different. The Osa is perfect escape, remote and beautiful with many things to do and see. The people are amazing, friendly and happy, always a smile on their faces. Chris and Claire have created the perfect oasis with easy access to surf, yoga, waterfall hikes and sight-seeing. They can give you great recommendations for things to do while you are there. I look forward to going back to see the new structure just finished last year.

i have never stayed anywhere so comfortable and immersed in such wildlife. the house can open up on 3 sides so u are basically watch the most exotic wildlife from the beautiful wooden deck on a hammock or the comfort of the built in day beds. .i saw many animals i had never seen before in the wild . the walk to the beach is 5 minutes through fruit trees where upon u arrive at your own beach with outstanding surf .. the house has everything you need and is designed with great detail . if you want to venture out from this paradise there is a super good local restaurant /bar right down the road . but this is the kind of place you never want to leave and dont have to it has it all.
If you want to experience the magical Costa Rican jungle in its purest form but with the luxury of some home comforts then this rental is perfect. The host couple Angus and Tania were not only extremely helpful and kind but also incredibly informative and went above and beyond to make our vacation one to remember! Pura Vida!
Hands down the go to spot / accommodations in the Osa. This was my first time to Cost Rica and was a bit skeptical from stories I've heard about other towns being over run and crowded with a seedy element. Nothing could be further from what it was like to stay at this rental in the Osa. Close to every range or surf break from beginner to expert, friendly neighbors, fresh food, and a ton of wildlife. A must for anyone that wants privacy, relaxation, and great scenery on a trip.
