“Charming, lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Carlos' house is a charming and lovely place to spend a week or two. The view of the ocean is stunning, the breeze up atop the hill is refreshing, and Carlos and his family go out of their way to make you feel at home. It is a short walk down the hill to the main cluster of villas and the beach; the walk back up the hill is a bit strenuous, but after breakfast and dinner, the exercise is welcome. This is a special place to which I would happily return year after year.

“The most beautiful sunset on the Osa Peninsula!”

We absolutely loved our stay at Carlos'. The house was neat, well maintained, and comfortable, but the best part was the breath taking view overlooking the ocean. Remote, surrounded by the jungle, you will see scarlet macaws flying by. Also, Carlos and his wife were adorable hosts. The food served at the family restaurant was delicious, generous, and very tico. All the staff was very helpful with organizing transfers and excursions. Everything was perfect! Thank you :)
Important: It is a 5-10 minutes walk to the ocean, quite steep on the way back, so just make sure you are in physical shape. Also, the grocery store is in Drake Bay, so make sure you have everything you need when you arrive!
