Places to stay in Golfito
Best Value lodging in the Marina zone, central to everything. No car required to get around. Fantastic bayview porch. A few steps to the marina restauants, bars and moorings. Good choice for transiting to the airport or a bus connection. Popular selection for singles and our "repeat guests" often in for a 3 day visa renewal or sportfishing day..... If you want to be in the waterfront area on a budget, this is a great selection with very little compromise. Compare us to local marina rates.
Room with a View! This small studio-guestroom is located on the hillside above Banana Bay Marina, one block from Golfito's town center. Furnished with a double bed, bathroom and a small snack nook including a coffeemaker, mini-refrigerator, microwave and toaster. Private and secure patio entry overlooking our gardens. Air Conditioned, hot water and Wi-Fi. Great for a single or cozy couple. Hotel-Style attendance and services.
Convenient to several typical restaurants and immediately adjacent to the marinas, the neighborhood is walking distance to everything a visitor needs including groceries and the central areas.
  • Katie’s place was spotless, if you’re planning to stay in Golfito I definitely recommend this place. The view from the balcony is beautiful! Also a big plus that there was AC

  • While small, this place feels anything but cramped or stuffy. We stayed one night to catch the early bus the next morning and felt such a reprieve from the heat of the day! The air conditioning is a godsend, it’s close to shops, food and not far from the marina which takes you to Zamia Wildlife Refuge where we spent our vacation. The space was clean and stylish with the amenities we are used to in the States, without sacrificing the Tico influence. Katie was easy to get in touch with and helped us get in even when she was out of town! 10/10, better than advertised.

  • Great place, great view, nice and comfortable, some good restaurants are near and the place was clean 😊

    François2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Next time I stay in Golfito it will be at one of Katies place. Loved it.

  • Great location, it was easy to arrive by local bus from Rio Claro / Pan American highway. Just look out for Banana Bay Marina and get off there. 2 bus stops from the dock for the boat to Puerto Jiménez. Local sodas ( cheap local food) and close to Banana Bay marina for more classic food, including breakfasts. Coffee was provided at the apartment,and the tap water is drinkable. Power shower with plenty of hot water. We only stayed one night, passing through. We'd definitely stay again.

  • Lovely place much better than I expected. I’ll be back

    Mary2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location. Very good services and attention. Near everything. If you want to go to the beach I advise you to take a boat and cross to one of the islands in front of it as it is a port area. Very good attention !!!!

    Golfito, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    My place has fantastic views of the Golfo Dulce where you can find dolphins, humpback whales and sea turtles. You’ll love this simple open structure because of the feeling of being alone in nature with many fruits to pick at from the surrounding forest while watching wildlife pass by like monkeys, parrots and toucans. My place is great for couples and solo travelers with a good level of fitness.
    This simple open air hut structure with roof is located in a 21 hectare private wildlife refuge. The experience of this nature living is an amazing opportunity to spend time in one of the most bio diverse areas of this planet.
    The beauty of this property is the lack of neighborhood. You will be nestled among primary and secondary forest as well as an edible garden area. There are 2 restaurants open daily on Playa Cacao, the nearest village. The nearest supermarkets can be found on mainland Golfito. Shopping and prepared meals are available upon request.
  • We loved it here! So relaxing and it felt like our own paradise. Something you really cannot get for this price anywhere else in Costa Rica. Take the recommendations seriously - you need good shoes to hike to the beach! Pack rain gear as you will want it if it rains! We drove to Playa Cacao and parked our car there for 3 days/2 nights with no issues.

    Carolyn2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • After only three nights we unfortunately had to leave this accommodation again - but were also a little satisfied to have civilization again. A really wonderful experience without spending time in the forest without windows and doors. We saw many animals. 3 species of monkeys were there and the fourth still missing species woke us up every morning. Roberto was always open and very helpful and also helped with questions such as whether the spiders discovered are dangerous or not ... The accommodation is not for everyone but it is super nice that something extraordinary is also offered ... Tina & Udo

    Udo2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • If we could give the location more stars, we would! The cabin is as shown on the pictures, so really basic, but the amount of wildlife you get to see is amazing!! We saw 3 different types of monkeys, toekans, ara's, dolphins & so much more. A big thanks to Pheobe and maestro Roberto for all the help and the great tour :)

    Stephanie2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • To sum it up: we had a perfect time and agreed on the fact that this place was the most wonderful we have ever stayed at! Waking up to the sound of the birds, monkeys and bears next to the cabin and watching dolphins jumping out of the water while sitting at the breakfast table...what else is there to wish for? And the fruits that grow in the garden are delicious. We also enjoyed the private beach, which is admittedly very hard to reach but definitely worth the hike. In addition the care taker Roberto is lovely and we spent some wonderful time fishing with him and chatting with him and his friends. He knows everything about the rain forest and was always more than helpful with whatever we needed. The cabin is kept simple but still has everything one might need including a gas stove, a wonderful outdoor shower, a toilet, a nice living room and mosquito nets to keep the beds, at least to some extent, free from this brutal little insects. Consindering that the cabin is situated in the middle of the jungle and subjected to wind and weather, it was of course not a very clean place to live in but this did definitely not take the fun out of it. They are currently doing renovations and are building new cabins up there, so we believe the place will be even more beautiful in the future. If you want to experience the best parts of what Costa Rica’s nature has to offer - this is most certainly what you are looking for!

    Laura2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing place, with a beautiful beach a 10 minute trek down. Everyone was very helpful and made it an enjoyable stay. A little difficult to get to but this place is a must-stay for people who enjoy tranquility and being surrounded in nature. Thank you!

    Tara2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had a great time at Zamia! The communication with Phoebe was great. We didn’t speak any spanish but Roberto is very friendly and you can feel that everything he’s doing in the jungle he is doing with heart. We had some problems with the flush toilet but Roberto helped us right away. Kelly, a volunteer, was also very nice and we were grateful to have someone to translate. It was a great experience to live there for one week in the middle of the jungle! We had luck and saw some capuchin monkeys with a baby monkey right in the tree in front of our house! We also saw a howler monkey, a lot of lizards, crabs, 2 snakes and the bats next to our bed were some cute neighbors. All in all if you are into nature I would definitely recommend the place.

    Maria2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was everything I expected and much more. The hike to the cabin was one of the best parts of my stay aside from the beautiful amazing view of course. Roberto was amazing and all the locals of the island. They made me feel very welcomed and the food was great. The mosquitoes are brutal but as long as you bring plenty of repellent it will be manageable. Unfortunately the mosquito nets need some replacing as one has holes making it easy for those stingers to come in and can make for an uncomfortable sleep. Aside from the minor details, the outside shower, the views, the remote area and the disconnect to everyone and everything makes for a great stay and visit to golfito. Thank you Phoebe and the locals for making my visit to cacao beach an unforgettable one.

    Cesar2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great help and indications to get to the cabine. Roberto is very nice and the sunrises are amazing !

    Sergio2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Katie’s studio was perfect for my husband and I. Beautiful sunrise outside the front door was a special treat!

    Ashley2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view. You'll definitely want to spend some time hanging around the space. Small place with beautiful Costa Rican decoratives. There is a bit of noise coming from passing cars, since the studio is right on the street. There's no AC and so it can get quite warm, however there are too large fans to keep cool. Katie was kind and provides a local guide to getting around Golfito. I would absolutely come back.

    Shannon2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The highlight of the place is the view you have (you cant see it from inside) , the garden is adorable, there was any stove to cook, near of everything, very satisfied!

    Tatiana2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated small guest suite with amazing view from the patio. We called to get directions when we got to Golfito and were immediately met at the Banana Bay Restaurant parking. The communication is great and the towels are so soft!

    Manon2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location, it is a very cozy, clean and tidy place.

    Andrés 2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • It is a central place, with a touch of very interesting Mexican culture. The place is very cool and has a beautiful view. I recommend it 100%

    Lilliana2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Katie’s Studio is perfectly located, exactly what I needed for a quick trip to Golfito for shopping! Just a few minutes away from the duty free deposit and with a AWESOME view to the bay! Also loved the beautiful garden!

    Golfito, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    Casual, Rustic, days spent on front balcony in hammock or swimming, see pictures for best description. A picture is worth 100 words.
    furnished cottage/cabin laundry on site Roadside parking Remote Jungle Oceanfront Bay This is not for everyone, Rustic But Ohhh so Beautiful What is Costa Rica anyway? It's all about Animals, Jungle & Ocean. If you want to experience the 'Real Costa Rica', this is your opportunity. First let me tell you what 'is not'; 1. No driveway to the House, It's a walk down through the jungle of 100 meters, heavy jungle. 2. No television 3. Nothing fancy, rustic beauty. 4. Sometimes there could be a water problem, it depends on the waterline. Please check for current condition 5. No A/C What it is; 1. Rustic, unlike anything you've experienced before. 2. It's real jungle, very Natural, bare feet welcome. 3. It's totally private 4. It's about the Jungle, the Monkeys, the Macaws 5. The Bay/Ocean is 7 meters from the front of the House 6. It's One of a Kind 7. It's an experience 8. It's your Vacation 9. It's the Rainforest 10. It's Beautiful 11. It's Incredible 12. It's Peace and Quiet 13. It's available by the day or several days The house is older, wooden, we battle with termites. We mostly have water, if not we have a small holding tank. It's really incredible, the views are unbelievable. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, no close convenient store, so stock up. It's a place you want to hunker down and relax for a few days. It's not for everyone, that's ok, we don't want 'everyone' we are looking for a few persons that understand what this is all about. If you are ready to sit back, swim, (oops an occasional gator) read, relax and absorb what Costa Rica was like 30 years ago, then you'll love it here. If you don't have a car, no problem. There is a local boat-taxi service that crosses the Bay from Golfito for 1000 colones each ($1.75 one way per person) If you have questions pls don't hesitate to write.
    There is one restaurant/bar nearby also on the waterfront, and one more a bit further away, but this is a bit more loud and a few characters best to not mix with.
  • Tranquility, beautiful sea and a super friendly Dave. The best to rest and be in touch with nature.

    Ellen2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful place during our 4 month trip (THE most beautiful place) Clean, quiet, secluded, rustic but cozy, .... What a pleasure to go back and forth to the city by small boat! What a pleasure to spend the evenings in front of this enchanting view of illuminated golfito, which is reflected in the bay right in front of you !!!! What a view!!! What silence !!! Ideal temperature !!! With the visit of dolphins! Families of monkeys !! Birds, pelicans, owls .... This house is just a daydream! Traveling for 4 months and we who travel 4 months a year, this is THE guaranteed favorite! In addition David is super nice and helped us when we arrived with our 6 suitcases, helped us to do our shopping and find us a phone card !! Mega pura vida !!!

    Ludovic2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Little piece of heaven. The house is charming and warm. Dave is a really nice and welcoming host. I would come back anytime.

    Nancy2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The House is Amazing and quiet isolated (junge feeling). The Garden is Huge and the House was good equiped. Definitely worth the money .

    Alvaro2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dave's Wildlife Jungle Lodge is exactly that what you expect to see and have during the stay in Golfito. Please don't be scared like my wife of the lonesomeness. It's not like it sounds, a little village is just around the corner, where you can walk to when its low tide. Otherwise you have to walk a little bit the mountain up through wilderness and then you are in a place called Playa Cacao where it gives two restaurants. The house itself is fantastic, well equipped, perfect located and has a beach direct in front of the house. Perfect to relax and have some days off the trouble within normal live. For a water taxi you can call Orlando which brings you around the area for about 1000 Colones p.P. So try it out, its worth. Chris

    Chris2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Dave's home is a true haven of peace. We immediately felt at ease in this beautiful environment between calm sea and tropical forest. The decoration is charming and the house well equipped and well maintained. Access is preferable by sea (preferably at low tide) but it is also possible by car; in this case, you will have to carry the suitcases on a fairly steep path in the humid forest. Not easy, except for the seasoned globetrotter! The house is a stone's throw from the pretty Cacao beach, accessible either by road on the back or from the sand at low tide. Only one regret, that of not having stayed long enough.

    Francis2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place! Stay there at least 2 nights and you will love it!

    Natanael2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Dave’s spot is very special. The house itself is gorgeous, with ample spots for lounging and watching the tide rise and fall from both downstairs and upstairs’ outdoor areas. The kitchen was a lovely place to cook and has multiple views of each side of the gorgeous garden which we spent most of our time in watching wildlife and sunbathing and even fishing. When you’re done relaxing, there are fantastic jungle hikes to the back of the house and when the tide is low, you can walk on the beach all the way around to a restaurant if you wish. Water taxis to Golfito were definitely highlights and just being out on the water in this area is so beautiful. The house has multiple fans if it gets too hot and we were pleased to see we weren’t getting bit by insects at all. Dave was super gracious and helped us with every question we had about the area. 10/10

Peaceful and quiet, a place to rest your body and charge your soul!!!

    La Cruz Paradise2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool place in the middle of the jungle! It does not have WiFi but that adds to the serenity of the place. Cesar was very friendly and communicative. Would definitely stay again!

    Fred2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a peaceful and comfortable place in a stunning location surrounded by nature, you should definitely visit Cesars personal paradise. The house is very nice and clean, kitchen very well equipped with all new utensils, there are fans as well as the airconditioning. The terrace is also very nice and spacious. The property is full of fruits and surrounded by nature and wildlife. There is a beautiful river just a few minutes walk from the house, with clean, crystal clear blue water... all to yourself! Great for swimming, exploring, trekking and im sure you could find a heap of wildlife out there too. You feel like you have this whole Jungle Oasis/Paradise to yourself. Its exactly the sort of place we we were looking for for our Costa Rica trip. The host (Cesar) is very helpful and friendly, he genuinely cares about the guests and their experience. He includes cleaning services too. We have been in Costa Rica for two months doing a lot of air bnb , and this was definitely the best place we stayed at. We were only upset that we didn't find it sooner as it would of been great to stay longer. We will return whenever we come back to Costa Rica... Definitely recommend!!!!

The views to the marina area really nice as well! Kitchen is fully equipped! We loved staying here, everything was great, thanks a lot Katie!

    Rubén2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We and another couple rented two of Katie’s units this month (January). We had read many great reviews from folks who had stayed with Katie, and maybe thought we knew what to expect, but found that our unit actually exceeded our expectations. We cook a lot and found the kitchen to be quite well supplied. The Casita is simple and comfortable with views of the marina and several miles out to sea. Most things you might need are within walking distance. There are a good many steps, which were excellent therapy for my recent knee replacement surgery. If you are into nature and efficient simplicity, we heartily advise you stay with Katie. I

    Sofia2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Always an excellent stay in one of Katies places.. This was the third one I’ve stayed in and her attention to detail is apparent in all of them.. Cute, well equipped, excellently maintained, just super comfortable to be there. Katie is always helpful and available and genuinely happy to have you stay. Golfito is lucky to have a host like her.

  • Super spacious, clean, quiet and convenient for business in town. My husband and I drove over 8 hours from the central northern zone of Costa Rica with no plans outside of getting some business taken care of in town and staying 1 night. We got presently surprised by how easy it was to walk to dinner and that we enjoyed the breathtaking views from sitting on the docs on the water. The house had much more space than we expected and parking was easy to arrange. Thank you Katie. We’ll be back.

    Geri2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Katie’s place is spectacular! She thinks of everything you may need too. Need extra towels? No sweat. How about garbage bags, every cooking utensil you can imagine, fresh sheets weekly, apartment turn over weekly, a bunch of English channels on the tube, essentials like salt and pepper, soap, paper towels, laundry weekly, you name it she’s got it for you. Not only is her place perfect but she’s pretty cool herself and her partners are all good people to sit around and shoot the bull with (did I just say shoot the bull?). I recommend going to the fish dock and buying your fresh fish straight from the fishermen… yum, can’t beat the freshness nor the price. My husband and I recommend staying at Katie’s house in a heart beat. She is definitely the hostess with the mostest. Plus she’s a get things done type of personality so don’t hesitate to ask her advice… have fun in Golfito! Pura Vida ✌️

    Dale2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Katie and Michael were very helpful and friendly. There was a luggage issue with the airline and they assisted and helped secure the missing bags. Very pretty location, clean and nice place. Would definitely recommend.

  • We liked our stay at with Yendry. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Great bathroom. There's a nice kitchenette on the porch. We sat out on the porch with a view of the gulf across the street - and there is also a good restaurant across the street. Close to downtown Golfito, but out of town on the way into town. Yendy was very friendly and gave us good advice about the duty free zone. Recommend.

  • A great place to land. This is our second stay with Katie. The units have beautiful views and are happy places to stay… Well decorated and clean. I love being able to walk across the street to the marina and enjoy the food. Katie is a pro and extremely helpful. I felt like I made mistakes as a guest… I am usually a stickler for how I leave an Airbnb and in our haste to catch an early flight, I left a bed unmade and dirty coffee cups in the sink. I also left an article that I’m asking her to send. Katie is so gracious and I appreciate that. We will do better next time!

    Joy & David2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Looking for a house where you can experience to live in the nature of the Osa Peninsula in a small Costa Rican neighbourhood? Then is this the place for you! The Osa Corcovado jungle house is located in a quiete and save neighbourhood close to the centre of Puerto Jiménez. In the nature around the house you can oftenly find wild animals! My family and I will be your neighbours and we love to help you with everything you need!
    We have a warm water shower and a removable fan!
    The neigborhood where the house is located is called ''El Bambú''. It's very quiet and save and it's full of nature! Often there are wild animals to find in the garden, like monkeys, Scarlet Macaws and more!
  • Hosts are incredibly nice, above the average really. Ask them also to show you the pet crocs who live in the backyard pond... The place is rustic, not posh at all, but it's part of a real costarican adventure in contact with nature. I was perplexed at the beginning, then loved it.

    Emanuele2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house as in the description, just minutes from Puerto Jimenez The family is adorable and attentive Very pleasant stay

    Aurelie2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was very pleasant, even though the host was not there, the family welcomed us and attended excellent. There were problems with the tv cable and they immediately solved the problem. The only drawback is at night there is no privacy as there are no curtains and clearly seen through.

    Ivo2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice time in Anthony’s jungle house. The location is great and we even met a really pretty frog in our house. Would definitely recommend!

    Anita2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely family and little place to stay in Puerto Jimenez. They were always available to answer questions and it was a very quiet and cute place to sleep!

    Hannah2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We use Anthony's place as a base during our stay in Puerto Jiminez. Anthony was the perfect host. He picked us up from the airport and dropped us back. He gave us lots of local info. The guide he suggested for our trip to Corcovado was outstanding. Similarly the guide he suggested for our trip to Matapalo was also very good. Anthony went above and beyond to help us and to make our stay comfortable; although he was super busy, he drove me into town to pick up dinner because it was raining.

    Vishwanathan2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Well equipped kitchen and quiet location. Good stop to come to Corcovado National Park.

    Nina2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We are really happy that we chose to stay in Anthony´s bnb, it was clean and spacious and we very felt welcome there. His family live close by and they gave us lots of good advice about the national park, they were really kind to us as soon as we arrived, even loaned me shampoo and cooked a tasty banana pancake! We had access to two bikes to use which made our trip really fun. Thanks again, we recommend it.

  • I was very comfortable and loved having a kitchen and lots of fans!! And very convenient location in town. Linda is very helpful and replies quickly. Pura Vida!

    Sarah2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Everything has been really good. It is an excellent place to spend some nights, it is a very comfortable house, well to rest, with privacy and the basics necessary to cook your own food. There is a room with a double bed and a single bed in the main room, the single mattress is rather a mat, uncomfortable to spend more than one night. Everything else very well!

    Pablo2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Linda’s place was right in the center! Super close to the supermarket and the main street. The place was nice and spacious with a separate bedroom and a kitchen and living room in one. The private bathroom was also very nice. There were bugs, but it being located in the most biodiversity intense place in the world, this is to be expected (they stayed outside of the bedroom, so it was fine). Highly recommend if you want a place to yourself close to the town.

    Juliet2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Super clean and by far has to be the best Hospitality in town. Linda was very quick to respond and help us with any concerns. I would definitely recommend this place and will be staying here again next time.

    Erik2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place, great price. Easy choice, stay here.

    Greg2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Linda was a great host! Her apartment is just huge and has everything you need for a longer stay. It's directly in the center of Puerto Jimenez but as far away from the restaurant that you do not have to worry about loud noises at night. Linda always is attendant and answers all questions very quickly.

    Julia2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • The room is located in a quiet and very central point. Linda is very kind and attentive.

    Genuar2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a excellent stay at Linda's and Laika's place. We felt very welcome and comfortable. We booked one night and stayed for four nights in the end, because we liked it. We really enjoyed having smoothies on the balcony and watch the scarlet macaws in the trees around! It was very easy to find the beautiful birds all around the house and at the beach near to the airport. We also enjoyed the bicycle tour to the beachs around. We saw snakes and crocodiles and other stuff on the way. We would come again!

  • listing was very accurate

    William2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I was in love the moment I sat out on the patio. Living on a house boat was a unique experience and I will do it again. It was quiet, clean and private. Katie was able to help me with any questions I had. I definitely recommend this place.

    James2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at 3 of Katie's properties. They were all equally clean and in great locactions. Very affordable and right next to 3 restaurants. I spent 2 months with Katie, Mikey, Tim and the dogs. Enjoyed my time very much with all of them. Always felt safe and is right next to lots of fishing boats. I ate many meals with them and had a lot of great conversations with everyone. I will definitely be back to see these people and stay at their apartments. The houseboat is awesome it's like sleeping on a waterbed. Really awesome deck out back to chill out and watch the sunsets.

    Jason2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • First - talk about a super host! Katie is amazing. So is everyone....what a pleasure. Felt like a home away from home. Second, what a unique, amazing, one-of-a-kind experience - a bit of "boat living" but in an amazing setting. Sitting, having morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the bay, the splash of fish, birds flying by, the occasional sea turtle. Wonderful setting, and probably the best 'views' in all Golfito. The boat house exceeded expectations - sparkling clean. Just a wonderful design with a great little 'galley', perfectly appointed bedrooms, and a lounge area, outdoor decks...awesome. But even better is the shared spaces - a great place to chill, chat, grab a coffee. All of the amenities you need are nearby - groceries, coffee shop, restaurants. Great location. This is a unique experience - kind of what I always imagined Airbnb can offer - something you won't get anywhere else. Thanks for such a memorable experience. One of a kind and 5 stars.

    Doug2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • My first experience in a house boat didn't disappoint: I loved the place and Katie and Tim were really nice hosts!

    Laura2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • My 3rd time staying with Katie on her house boat, I'll be back in November

    Jeff2019-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. The back deck is so amazing to sit and watch the storms or enjoy the beautiful sunset.

    Justine2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is Amazing !!!! What a great time we had...and what a great host Katie is !! We loved everything abouth this place. Relax 100% at Golfito. Take the cano...and enjoy.

    Golfito, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    In southern Costa Rica, in the unique Golfo Dulce, on Playa Zancudo, set back 300 ft from the beach and off the main road, a secret garden with a safe, clean, quiet and cozy space to relax. Restaurants, stores and bars as close as 5 minutes walking. Located at one of the best spots on the beach to swim, however if you want to surf then just walk south and the waves keep getting bigger the farther you go. If you are looking to explore, play or simply get away then this is the place to stay!
    The Cabina is on the first floor of our home. Gardens in front and back. Decks all around the house, including tables, hammocks, couches and a large kitchen. If you want to enjoy your time here more we can serve a fresh homemade breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    Quiet and small, a few houses infront of our lot along the road, but next to us are open green areas, also in back. There are two stores on the beach, about 5 and 10 min walks in ether direction, and they have most supplies. If you have special diet or medical needs we suggest you bring it with you.
  • I spent two wonderful nights here and wish I could have stayed longer. Meeting people like Amon-Eros, Nadia, and Nina is what makes traveling so special.

  • A relaxing space and the hosts were very attentive

    Leo2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very sweet spot in a great location. The beds were comfy, lots of outdoor space and right across the street from the beach. Nights were quiet as you are set back off the road a bit. Nadia and her family are friendly and sweet. Zancudo is a lovely rustic town for those who want to escape from the tourist vibe. If you like dirt roads, miles of black sand beaches, dogs, chickens and everything within walking distance this is a great spot for you.

    Anna2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place and attention Much nature and on the part of the hostess only good things could say

    Erick2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nadia is a very nice person with interesting stories, also prepares a delicious pizza very happy to have known.

    Erick2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Right across street from beach, minutes walk to grocery and local restaurants. Hot... And bring your insect repellent, those suckers are nasty. Place was great though, we really enjoyed it and the hosts are super nice, friendly, and helpful.

    Brian2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying in Nadia‘s and Amon-Eros‘ place. The surrounding is just beautiful, full of mango trees and coconut palms and there was a sloths family living right in front of the house. A calm, little paradise ! But most of all the family‘s natural and warm way of hosting us made our stay here special. They showed us all the medical and food plants in the garden , invited us to play beach volleyball with them and Nadia offered us delicious home made bread and pizza for a small price. Thank you so much for these amazing days - we felt like home.

    Christina2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay with Amon-Eros, Nadia and cute little Nina (and their two adorable dogs) for a few days. This beautiful family was a pleasure to get to know and the guest are is a lovely main floor private space in a quiet garden sanctuary. The accommodations are clean and well-appointed with a large kitchen area if you prefer to do your own cooking. The garden is peaceful and lovely with hammocks on the walk-out patio to relax in. The beach is a short few minutes walk with a direct path. Both Amon and Nadia have lived in the area for a very long time and are both knowledgeable and readily available for any questions you might have. I enjoyed my conversations with them and Nadia prepared some delicious meals for me (at a very reasonable, inexpensive rate). There is a very positive, calm energy in this home and I felt safe and comfortable as a solo female traveller. Thank you Nadia for all the fun conversations, the zumba classes, and the extra coconut water and thank you Amon for helping me get to Golfito for departure and helping me find the post office to mail my postcards and for all your immense knowledge and details about so many things on the tours you provide! It was a great stay with your family. Pura Vida!

    Playa Zancudo , Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    This is one of five small bedrooms each with 10 m2 of space, a private bathroom , AC and super friendly price They offer an inexpensive escape into the tropical depths of mother nature. 'Flora & Fauna' extraordinaire! This is a great room for a night or two or maybe three, but for anything longer we suggest you reserve a larger accommodation with us. All photos were taken on the property. Pura Vida, Andrew
    A true tropical escape
    On Airport Road, 150 m west of the airport
  • Palapa Hut was conveniently located close to center of town, airport, and beach. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean. There was a spacious communal space with wifi, happy hour drinks, and a large communal kitchen. This was the perfect place to stay before leaving for Corcovado!

    Kate2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • You won't find a more knowledgable and friendly host than Andrew!! His great advice and breadth of knowledge of the area was very helpful. The facilities are spotless and in particular we enjoyed the available kitchen facilities and common social area where we met people from several different countries. The monkeys and macaws outside our door made for a true tropical jungle experience, without leaving the property! While this was our first trip to this delightful property, it won't be our last!

    Catherine2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • La Palapa Hut is an amazing place to stay. The ambience of staying is just like spending the night in a forest. The staff is amazingly friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Osa peninsula and/or going to Corcovado national park.

    Deepansh2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing space. Wish we had more time to enjoy the property. The perfect space to relax after Corcovado. Everything is within walking distance. Andrew was very welcoming.

    Sarah2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • La Palapa Hut is an amazing place to stay especially if you are planning to do Corcovado national park. We had an amazing time here and highly recommend the place.

    Deepansh2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exactly as listed, and was the perfect place to stay a few nights before our overnight trip to corcovado. The room is very simple, a bedroom and bathroom, however the gardens and grounds are what make this place special. The amount of wildlife here is incredible, be sure to walk around and explore the area.

    Allan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great space. Beautiful property. An amazing find

    Sarah2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew and his wife have the dream! This is truly the place to be in Osa! I can’t wait to come back and stay here again - next time for much longer!

    Welcome to Frith Estate where your hosts Sandra and Sonny have brought Bermuda hospitality to the middle of the Costa Rican jungle in Playa Zancudo! Enjoy the slow pace of life in secluded Playa Zancudo in Costa Rica's much less travelled Southern Pacific Zone. Enjoy excellent surf every morning, just steps away from the front door of your beachfront cabin and after a day of exploring or relaxing, watch the sun set over Osa Peninsula.
    Our small beachfront cabin in Playa Zancudo is the perfect choice for couples or partners to unwind. The cabin is furnished with at least the following- queen size bed, four burner gas stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, fridge/freezer, TV with HDMI cable (bring your gbox!) and WIFI table and chairs inside and outside. For rent we have 2 surf boards, 2 bicycles and two ATVs. Partial handicap access bathroom.
    a short walk to Robbie's restaurant, Ellie's pizzaria and Coloso Del Mar restaurant.
  • We just had the most amazing time at the frith estate in playa zancudo! You cannot beat the amazing ocean breeze that flows right through the cabina! No ac needed whatsoever! We caught local tuna with a zancudo native and were able to feed ourselves plus a few others the entire time! Being able to cook and have full kitchen was so perfect, cooking and eating to the roar of the ocean, you just simply cannot beat it. Amazing tour into the mountains by horseback, so incredibly special!! Zancudo has tons to offer and Sonny and Sandra will go out of there way to help and show you along! Picked up up from gulfito and dropped us off to our next destination without hesitation. Amazing hosts! Perfect place to get out of the hustle and bustle and relax. Great food around and an amazing baking from Ellie, you just can't beat this local experience we had. Absolutely perfect and we couldn't be more happy and thankful for such a beautiful wonderful experience!

    Elecia2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Well let’s just say this place is a real gem! Just about 160 feet to the beach, where the water is very nice and decent for swimming at low tide. A bit challenging at high tide. The unit was sparkling clean nicely decorated and just large enough for a couple to cook, bathe, and sleep! Make sure to inquire about all the rentals Sonny offers, and make sure to get his wife to list the different tours she offers! We will be back!

    Reid2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Right on a black sand empty beach. Sonny was a great host. He picked us up when we got into town and also gave us a ride to our next destination for a reasonable price.

    Paul2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place. It was exactly as advertised, immaculately clean and well equipped. We’ve been to Zancudo a few times and there are always pros and cons to different ends of the beach. We loved being so close to Coloso del Mar and Ellie’s bakery and didn’t mind the longer walk to the stores although some might. If so Sonny has bikes and ATVs for rent The waves are bigger at this end of the beach also. The hosts were friendly and informative and we loved the company of their dogs Betty and Henry. If you’re not a dog lover though they were very well behaved and would never be a nuisance. We would definitely return here if in the area again!

    Jane2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a laid back quiet place with attentive hosts , this the place for you. Sonny can fix you up with a tour, transportation or anything else you might need. The fruit and veggie truck does its rounds Wed and Sat, and you can order baking delivered to your door from Ellie. There are two grocery stores in town and Sonny can put you on to the best restaurant . The cabina has a well equiped kitchen and the wifi is excellent. We will return.

    William2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Cabina was very clean and comfortable. A beautiful ocean breeze all day and the sound of the ocean. Lots of local wildlife in the area with a sloth living in a tree on the front lawn. Great walks along the ocean. Hosts were easily available and full of information of the area. A little more isolated than my partner and I would normally go to but with our own transportation was not an issue.

    Dave2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in Zancudo! We rented bikes and an ATV from Sonny and drove up and down the amazing coastline. You wake up in the morning to parrots squaking and the sound of waves crashing against the sandy beach. I highly recommend this place if you are anywhere in the southern zone of Costa Rica! We had a fire on the beach several nights in a row under the moonlight. The sunsets and the stars at night are overwhelmingly beautiful! Sonny and Sandra are wonderful, friendly people with local knowledge. Sonny runs a tour business and offers discounts to those who stay in this guesthouse. I cannot recommend this place enough :)

    Nicholas2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you just want to switch off and relax, this is the place for you. The beach is only a few meters away and the water is pleasantly warm. The house has everything you need and is ideal for two. We especially enjoyed sitting on the terrace and enjoying the great view. The nearest supermarket is 2 km away and easy to reach on foot. However, you should bring enough money with you as there is no ATM here. However, credit cards are also accepted. And our hosts Sonny and Sandra were very nice, helpful, sometimes brought us something to eat and organized a horse ride for us.

    Our beautiful and spacious cement house was just completed in December 2019. The spacious bedroom offers a queen bed, and in the living room there is a comfy full-sized sofa bed. We have an additional single bed with mattress that we can set up in the living room or bedroom upon request. The spacious bathroom with beautiful stonework is inviting for taking a nice hot water shower. The fully outfitted kitchen is a semi-outdoor space, all screened in with mosquito netting. Nice outside patio.
    The entire house is surrounded by maintained garden and fruit trees such as bananas, coconut (pipa), plantain, lemons, avocado, starfruit, and more. Parking is right outside your home on the driveway. The property is around 1500 square meters in total.
    The neighborhood is quiet and there are only a few houses around. Behind the rental unit, there is farmland with plants and with our two horses Mora and Morita. Next to the rental towards the North, there is a property that no one currently lives on. The street out front of the rental home is a dead-end road with a few more families that live there. We are currently the last house on the road with grid-tied electricity. The families further down the road use solar energy and sometimes run a generator. Right around the corner, around 5 minutes walk, there is primary and secondary forest with all 4 monkey species, sloth, coati, agouti, Tyra, pumas, ocelot, and more! The Bambu hill is connected to world-famous Corcovado National Park, so all animals that are found there can also be found here. If you're into birding, there is ample opportunity to bird watch. We have toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, and hummingbirds right on our property, as well as Trogons, Red-capped Manakins, Torquoise Mot Mot in the forest right around the corner. Often you can hear the howler monkeys right from your front porch in the early mornings (howling over at the forest around 5 minutes walk).
  • This house was amazing. The Casa de la Bambu is situated around 10min (by car) from the city. We had everything what we needed. You will see that Janina put a lot of love in this house so that everybody feels just like home. So the bed was very comfortable and we had everywhere an ventilator. In the bedroom was an AC. The kitchen was fully equipped. You could sit at the terrace and simply enjoy the beautiful surroundings and hear the chirping birds. We wished we could have stayed longer. But we will definitely come another time back here. We can highly recommend this Airbnb house. Janina is a very friendly and warm host. She was there for us and gave us a lot of tips.

    Mathuri2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Janina is a great host, you‘ll always feel welcomed by her and your neighbor Josh. The house is clean and private and it‘s only a few minutes by car to the next big supermarket, restaurants and fun activities. Because of the lovely garden there are many birds and even Aras are stopping by. We also never had trouble with the wifi or hot water- it all worked perfectly fine. A big plus is that they have their own filter, so you can drink tab water! Janina and Josh both were really helpful when it came to booking activities or planning trips as they both know the area and people extremely well. I‘m sure they’d also be happy to help if there‘s something wrong or you got questions, concerns or anything else.

    Barbara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Janina's appartment is an amazing place! It's huge, clean and contains everything needed! We enjoyed our stay very much. The communication with Janina was easy, her dogs are sweet and Josh easy going and very helpful! We had no car but Arturo was always there to help with transport if needed. We can definitely recommend Janina's place!

    Jessica2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space and fantastic host, Janina was friendly and super helpful with local information and directions. Great value for the price, we highly recommend!

    MacGregor2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is really very well equipped and designed with attention to detail. Everything was clean and the location is nice and quiet. Janina is a warm and helpful host and has good tips for discovering the area.

    Christin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Janina and Josh were incredible hosts and their place is AMAZING. We were so happy with the comfort level of the abode, the crazy bird life, friendly neighborhood, and the kindness of the hosts. Janina and Josh are invested in their community, and learning about the area through their eyes was valuable. If you like nature, this place is perfect. If you’d like to be a bit outside of town, it’s perfect. Air conditioning was a welcomed amenity given it’s rarity in CR. I was able to work and do video calls with the WiFi easily. We would return in a heartbeat and stay longer.

    Jason2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great. Larger than the pictures. Cold Air which comes in handy. Great internet. Lots of thought went into this. Take a tour with Josh when you get there. Communication was great right from the start. Highly recommend.

    Ray2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying at Janina’s place. The house itself is very cozy and immaculately clean. If you keep the two doors to the bedroom closed you can keep it super dry and cold in there for a very comfortable sleep. The setting is also amazing. Parrots come flying in and out of the yard...and the nature sounds you hear from the netted kitchen are incredible. Janina is also very sweet and beyond hospitable. Can’t recommend enough! Oh yeah...nice HOT showers, too :)

    La Posada del Barbero offers a sleek, brand new, air-conditioned, fully furnished, studio apartment just 1.2Km from downtown Ciudad Neily. La Posada del Barbero is our home away from home. We live in Oakland, California, and spend chunks of the year in Ciudad Neily, visiting Abuela Maria.
    La Posada del Barbero is a studio apartment of about 47 sq meters/500sq. ft. It is air-conditioned and our bed will give you the rest you have come to get. Our full kitchen will allow you to prepare your meals easily and efficiently with the induction stove. Otherwise, you can order from the various restaurants in downtown Ciudad Neily. Internet is super important to us when we visit, and we know you’re probably no different, therefore we have a special multi-wan Peplink Balance 30 router with 3 WAN providers(Cable, DSL and 4G Cellular) al connected to a UPS so that not even power outages will bring your internet down. We also have a set of 3 Peplink APs so that your wireless signal is available all over the property, even in the patio. Downtown is just 1km away and you will be just 3 blocks away from the rainforest, so there will be lots of birds and you'll breathe as clean air as it gets in the area. Not only will the forest clean it up before it gets to you, but we have a high-end air-conditioning unit which will do so as well. Thermally insulated walls, double pane windows, and a highly efficient A/C so you'll be cool and comfortable without consuming a lot of energy. Furthermore, whatever energy we consume, we offset by buying carbon offsets through FONAFIFO (https://www.fonafifo.go.cr/es/calculadora/), so your stay will be zero emissions. If you would like to live among Costa Ricans temporarily, experience the real Costa Rica, not its manicured version, then this is the place to go. You'll be living among Costa Ricans of all walks of life. You can visit the Rio Corredores, as well as its cavern system if visiting during summer, or a relatively dry period. You can also book tours and get to know the area. You're at the center of Costa Rica's southern pacific. The bus stop, restaurants, pharmacies, computer stores, government offices, you name it. Are all downtown, walking distance.
    The Studio is located in Barrio San Rafael, Ciudad Neily. It is on the second floor, so you'll have a nice view of the surrounding forests. Barrio San Rafael is quiet and populated with middle-class families. Located off the main road leading to San Vito from Ciudad Neily it is the perfect place to stay if you want to be centrally located and have access to all the services.
  • Wilbert is a perfect host and responds to every question directly and in a friendly and helpful way! The big and bright apartment had everything we needed and we felt comfortable all the time. The place is extremely good if you want to cross the border to Panama because it is close and you can catch every bus you need. We want to say thank you again for the great hospitality and support. We can definitely recommend this place and would stay again!

    Aileen2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • La Posada del Barbero is a great convenient , clean , safe and modern studio that offers amenities that travelers are seeking! WIFI, A/C , Security, Well stocked IKEA kitchen with induction cooktop, mini fridge, coffee maker etc. Also great linens / bedding and modern bath stocked with soaps:) We felt like we had our own Oasis during our stay to the area while we explored San Vito (just 40 minute drive) , Ciuduad Neilly (10 minute walk) , Paso Canoas (15 minute drive). If you are looking for a bite to eat check out Las Brasas Costarrican Grill just a 5 minute walk. Excellent food and friendly owners! Wilbert thanks for everything and we plan on returning . Until next time Pura Vida!

    Kaitlin & Andrew2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • La Posada del Barbero is an excellent apartment! Everything is new, clean and you have a fridge and a kitchen to prepare what you need. Wilbert's mother who lives in the lower part of the house is a very kind, very nice lady and even invited us to breakfast! It has been a very good stay and Wilbert was very communicative and hospitable. The location is good and 100% recommended.

    Leah2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • All the entrance to the property is digital that is very convenient to not have to bother you if you arrive late, the place is incredibly clean, the bed is king very comfortable, it has all the utensils to cook, very good location, we went nearby to a well called “el gallo”, and we went to eat at a viewpoint called “don Pepe's grill” with an incredible view.

    Vallejos Mora2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is beautiful, very well located for what we needed, the attention of the owner is very good, the security and comfort of the apartment we loved. We will be back

    Dany2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wilbert and his wife were very accommodating. I mentioned this trip was for my girlfriend's birthday and they thoughtfully left a surprise birthday cupcake w/ candle on the dining table upon on arrival! For convenience and excellent hospitality, Wilbert provided us with local eatery tips, remote guest access (myQ app) to the garage gate, and access to on-site washer and dryer. His family (who lives below our unit) were very kind and welcoming. An excellent stay!!!

    Albert2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, really close to Paso Canoas and Panamá (20 kilometres), also convinient for going to Golfito. If you are driving, go to La Parrilla de Pepe! Amazing sightseeing! The place is super clean and really well equipped.

    Maikol2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment of the reservation the host was super attentive and responded immediately. The lodging is very well equipped, has modern finishes and very good taste, it was also impeccably clean. The entry could not be easier. I will definitely use it again when I return to that area. Thank you Wilbert! Since the initial reservation the host was super attentive and responded immediately. The place is very well equipped, built with modern interior designs and very good taste, and it was immaculately clean. Check in could not be any smoother. I'll definitely use it again when I return to the area. Thanks much Wilbert!

    we're happy you dropped by. take a load off, sit down and relax. it's very easy to fall into a tropical rhythm in a place where thatched roof dwellings such as chozas, ranchos & palapas exist. They are an essential part of both the historical and contemporary Osa lifestyle & experience. They are simplicity, functionality and beauty all rolled into a fine piece of work. you'll notice the tropical elegance of la palapa hut as soon as you enter.
    A private single room with AC, private toilet and hand basin and a shared shower unit.
    quiet with lots of flora and fauna
  • Fun place that was very cozy!

    Brett2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and quiet place nearby the center of Puerto Jimenez. Andrew is very friendly, helpful and accomodating, and the daytour to Corcovado National Park was memorable.

    Benjamin2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay while visiting the Corcovado Park and the Sea Turtles in the Golfo de Osa.

    Sharon2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • I loved Jacqui and Andrew's place because it is the perfect rainforest getaway where rustic travel meets comfort! This place is surrounded by rainforest and a diversity of wildlife. I loved hanging out in the common area where we met travelers from all around the world! Jacqui and her staff were always available and made me feel right at home. They booked my tours, recommended local favorites and were fun to get to know. Jacqui was a world traveler and I really enjoyed chatting with her.

    Shawn2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great private room in a very quiet (in the best way possible!) hostel. Yummy breakfast each morning, coffee all day. Large communal kitchen. LOUD A/C.... was a waste to get a room with an AC because I had to shut it off while I was sleeping, but perfect for the day. Location is awesome, front staff helpful

    Puerto Jiménez, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

    Located directly at the beach Playa Platanares, only 6km east of Puerto Jimenez. It is one of the best beaches on the Osa Peninsula, still natural, remote, lonely, with dark sand, palm trees and beach almond trees, which attract a lot of scarlet macaws. Each beach house has an open kitchen, a living area and bathroom on the ground floor, and a bedroom on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the garden. Fresh water is pumped straight from our on site well.
    A prime location only 30 seconds walk from the untouched, pristine beach, as well as being within the Costa Rican jungle, this property is popular with all kinds of wildlife. Regular visitors include howler monkeys, white faced capuchin monkeys, squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, as well as resident crabs, frogs, iguanas, geckos and more! We are also right next to a popular nesting beach for four different types of sea turtles. Although we say no events or parties, we sometimes have bonfires on the beach.
    We are 15 minutes taxi journey away from the local town of Puerto Jimenez, which has everything you need - large supermarket, restaurants, cafes, beach bars, pharmacies and gift shops. In the immediate area, we have two lovely hotels from where you can have a drink, a meal, and use the pool (for a small fee) - though you may prefer to swim in the sea as it is right on your doorstep! There are many things to do around the area, and we are more than happy to help you plan activities to make the most of your stay on the Osa Peninsula. Activities include: kayaking in the mangroves, fishing, surfing, nature hikes into Corcovado National Park, boat tours for whale and dolphin spotting, snorkeling, chocolate tours, canopy tours, crocodile watching, and horseback riding.
  • Waleska’s Place is AMAZING! Waleska herself is such a kind and welcoming person. She helped us schedule local activities, was always available to answer any questions we had, and had great tips for what to do in the area. She even helped my husband and I by giving us cactus leafs for our bad sunburns (surprisingly much better than aloe). The property is beautiful and has a lot of fun wildlife to see. We loved being able to walk across the street to the beach, which was also very beautiful. The place itself was clean, spacious, and very comfortable! We also very much so enjoyed the outdoor kitchen and the balcony off the bedroom. Everything about Waleska’s Place was amazing and we highly recommend this place to anyone who likes to be around nature and slightly off the the beaten path.

  • Waleska's Place is our happy place! We had a great but unfortunately too short time at Waleska. If you are looking for peace in a lovingly landscaped garden by the sea (we had the beach to ourselves), this is the place for you. The bungalows are a little out of the way and almost in the middle of the jungle with the associated background noise;). If you spend the night there, you should definitely have dinner there, Waleska is a great cook and self-catering, and Phillip pulled the fish out of the sea almost before dinner. We were also provided with great tips, if you want to plan a great tour, Waleska should ask about Roger :). We gladly accepted the somewhat bumpy approach for a deserted beach and pure nature. We hope that we will once again end up in this great place.

  • Very nice and natural place between jungle and sea. Beautiful beaches just 1 min to go and jump in after wake up 😍 If you have luck you can experience the wonder of turtle life and leave babys into the ocean. It‘s a bit remote but perfect to come down. There are a lot of animal sounds. Waleska speak german, english and spanisch and is very helpful. I recomment it 👌🏼

  • Really nice place to stay like a real Holliday ! You have your own kitchen in the bungalow and really lovely place with charm. Between flowers and animals you would love Waleska place for sure !

  • Our stay at Waleska’s was very good. We had a very nice cottage at the back of her resort. The cottage was straight forward, well equipped and we had plenty of space inside and outside. The bed was very comfortable and the whole cottage was clean. It had everything to cook, but we only had breakfast outside which was idyllic. Plenty of birds to see and hear in the morning and evening. On one evening we were able to eat at Waleska’s place and this was really a treat, fresh fish out of the sea and 90 minutes later on our plate, the tasty salad and vegetables made everything perfect. Waleska booked a fantastic tour which was organised by Ficus Tours and we enjoyed a great time with Luis. We really enjoyed this part of Osa Peninsula as there are very little tourists. The sea can be sometimes rough but most of the time it wasn’t a problem to go swimming.

The stairs up is easy if u re healthy. Hot water works but u don’t really need it after climbing up:) the check in was easy. Yendry was not around but she texted me that she will be answer any questions. In front of the House is a nice Restaurant with good Food. We reached this place by bus. There are several bus stops along the road to go to the town or the ferry to puerto Jimenez.

  • Our stay in Golfito was so special because of this spot! Jon and I joke about living in a treehouse one day and this gave us the feel of being in the trees with air-conditioning and and unbelievable view. We wish that we could have stayed longer and we also really enjoyed dining at Mar y Luna across the street! It was overall quite magical!

  • The casita was spectacular. Modern and well designed. The all all glass patio opening gave the feeling of being outdoors while nestled comfortably inside. It truly is a garden of Eden. Another review said it was to good to be true, and it truly felt that way. What special way to spend 3 days over Christmas. Thank you. I hope to return again some day.

    Wayne2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Casitas are beautiful, have good style, everything you need and incredible views. The attention from the moment of the reservation is impeccable. The best option in the area to rest with good views.

    Located directly at the beach Playa Platanares, only 6km east of Puerto Jimenez. It is one of the best beaches on the Osa Peninsula, still natural, remote, lonely, with dark sand, palm trees and beach almond trees, which attract a lot of scarlet macaws. Each beach house has an open kitchen, a living area and bathroom on the ground floor, and a bedroom on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the garden. Fresh water is pumped straight from our on site well.
    A prime location only 30 seconds walk from the untouched, pristine beach, as well as being within the Costa Rican jungle, this property is popular with all kinds of wildlife. Regular visitors include howler monkeys, white faced capuchin monkeys, squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, as well as resident crabs, frogs, iguanas, geckos and more! We are also right next to a popular nesting beach for four different types of sea turtles. Although we say no events or parties, we sometimes have bonfires on the beach.
    We are 15 minutes taxi journey away from the local town of Puerto Jimenez, which has everything you need - large supermarket, restaurants, cafes, beach bars, pharmacies and gift shops. In the immediate area, we have two lovely hotels from where you can have a drink, a meal, and use the pool (for a small fee) - though you may prefer to swim in the sea as it is right on your doorstep! There are many things to do around the area, and we are more than happy to help you plan activities to make the most of your stay on the Osa Peninsula. Activities include: kayaking in the mangroves, fishing, surfing, nature hikes into Corcovado National Park, boat tours for whale and dolphin spotting, snorkeling, chocolate tours, canopy tours, crocodile watching, horseback riding and more.
  • Waleska's place was truly perfect! We stayed in one of the circular cabinas, an awesome design and perfect to be self sufficient. The location is great - close enough to town to easily get supplies, but located on a pristine stretch of beach that offered opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, photography, exploration, and prIvate relaxation. It is also a perfect jump off point to explore the Osa Peninsula, with points south and north easily accessed. We'll be back for sure!

  • An absolute dream in such a beautiful place. We really enjoyed it and will definitely come back again.

    Lisa2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at both a tent and a bungalow on our stay here in the beautiful town of Puerto Jimenez. What you see on the Airbnb site pales in comparison to how you will feel when you arrive. First of all, as soon as you get out of your vehicle the smells in her amazing garden will invigorate you. We walked down a beautiful path to be greeted by Luna the dog, then our host, Waleska who was very nice and friendly. ( They both were) She showed us to our tent which was very charming, perfectky clean, had a sweet little deck and cutely folded guest towels. There are power outlets by each side of the bed and a light. The deck also had lighting and a table with 2 chairs. . The tent is across a small sandy quiet rd to a beach... a beach that you will basically have to yourself. When we went to bed on the comfortable mattress we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the crashing waves. In the morning a delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs,beans/rice and coffee was served at her place. Unfortunately we only got one night in the tent as it was booked the following day. ......however then we got to stay at a bungalow..... My boyfriend and I are at opposite ends as to which was our favourite place. The bungalow has more space, with bathroom inside of it and an outdoor kitchen. Where as the tent had the view of the water and was a titch closer to the beach. You have a private shower and toilet with the tent but it is down the path.....no big deal. It was sooo clean and nice. I prefer the tent he prefers having more amenities...but they are both amazing ! Back to yhe bungalow.... we really liked the outdoor kitchen and shaded eating area, and also the deck off the bedroom upstairs, the fans were a huge bonus. There is no A/C or hot water. You dont need hot water...and you get used to the heat when you have no choice. The wifi was only available near Waleskas place which is good as you tend to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you more. I plan on rebooking for years to come. I love the cleanliness, the gardens, the rusticness, and the almost private beach being so close. Also the host...she was lovely,personable, honest and kind.

    Lori2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Waleska's place is a fabulous spot to stay. The cabin is cute, spacious, clean, and has everything one needs. Waleska is a great host and had recommendations for us for activities. Her beautiful garden is filled with birds and an amazing beach is right across the street.

    Anita2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Waleska was above our expectations: 10 unique days in a deserted place where the garden has nothing to envy to the fauna of the Corcovado Park. Waking up to the sound of monkeys, magical sunrise alone on a 7 km long beach, a very good breakfast when you order it the day before from Waleska. the bungalow has a kitchen, plan your shopping at puerto Jimenez supermarket to cook on the spot and you will be the kings of the world! (15 minutes of track from the city center, where 7000 to 8000 colones of taxi to come from the center). Wonderful!

    Rodolphe2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Waleska's accommodation for a few days. It was so incredibly nice that we even extended it twice by one day each and rescheduled our remaining vacation because we liked it so much. Originally we were only looking for accommodation to take a booked trip (Ficus-Tours - Puerto Jimenez, two-day jungle hike. Incidentally, it is also highly recommended). Accommodation: The property consists of four or five bungalows and is located directly on a huge, long sandy beach near the nature reserve Corcovado. The beach is not very busy, sometimes you are all alone. In the hotel next door (only 5 minutes from Waleska) there is a good restaurant with Italian food. We ate pizza there twice. Puerto Jimenez is about 15 to 20 minutes away by car.

    Markus2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Her place is spectacular, private and peaceful. Full kitchen to cook. Waleska is a great hostess! She was always willing to help and give tips on what to do in the area.

    Patricia2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 very nice days at Waleska. The bungalows are beautifully decorated and you can cook wonderfully in the outdoor kitchen. Waleska is very hospitable. She gave us good tips so we could be there when baby turtles were released on the beach. The area is a little out of the way, but easy to reach by car, but it is very quiet (except birdsong) at night and you are very close to the beach, which is ideal for swimming or walking. We would definitely go there again.

Pavones surf is 20 minutes drive (board rental available in Zancudo & Pavones).
  • Tom and Hollie were all round amazing hosts. The house is so beautiful inside and out- surrounded by wildlife and captivating views. If you are looking to immerse yourself in a serene beautiful nature this is the place. Hollie and Tom was so kind to cook for us during our stay and offer tips for an adventurous trip. Everything about this place is amazing !!

  • We will remember forever the beautiful place where we stayed and the hospitality received

    Juan Gerardo2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We were at Hollie and Tom's place during the start of the wet season. Great thunder and lighting. Animals galore (monkeys, toucans, sloths, parrots, turkey vultures and other birds). Hollie and Tom's place requires an SUV/Jeep or Tom can pick you up in his pickup which is what we did from the bus we caught in San Jose to Golfito (we got off a bit early to meet Tom). The roads turn rough as you get closer to Casa Zenn (their place). The room we had was a good size and a comfortable king bed with private bath. Shared living space and great covered veranda in the back for viewing wildlife. Their two cats were very friendly and also provided some entertainment. We got some breaks in the weather in our 4 night stay and went to near by Golfito by boat/ferry and returned via a mangrove canal only passable at high tide. We enjoyed a dip in their pool which was refreshing after the jungle walk on their property. We didn't take advantage of the yoga area under the palapa (we probably should have). Tom also arranged a kayaking tour up a near by river of mangroves (saw two crocks). Tom is a great cook, so we opted for eating in most of the time at a very reasonable cost. Tom also provided transportation on request at reasonable costs as well. We went to a local restaurant nearby one night. We did fine without a vehicle. We'll be back!!

  • Lovely spot in the country! Wonderful hosts! Amazing views!

    Sam2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical place! My wife and I decided to spend the night somewhere a little different than usual, and we came to an amazing house. Holly welcomed us with open arms, and made us feel at home. The scenery was magical, the house was clean, the meals Holly and Tom served us were at the levels of 5 star restaurants. Tom and Holly were charming, sharing their journey to Costa Rica and giving us time. The trip to the beaches is very short between 10-20 minutes. I must mention that I awoke in the morning to the concert. The sounds from the jungle surrounding Tom and Holly's house were amazing. Enjoy every minute, I recommend to anyone who passes through the area to stop for at least one night. Thank you very much was awesome!

    Itay2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • You have to go, the place is awesome, it's worth the trip. Hollie and Thomas are the best hosts one can find. Casa Zenn is simply a paradise !!!

    Carlos2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Zenn was a perfect experience. We stopped here towards the end of our 2 week trip to Costa Rica . It was everything we wanted and more. Our hosts were super sweet and Hollie is an amazing chef. She made our meals every night and they were delicious (different types of cuisines and ingredients made with love). The outdoor space was beautiful. There were hammocks and a pool as well we had our own private area of the patio where we could watch the sun set and the monkeys play. It was the exact experience we were hoping for. We also kayaked which Hollie and Thomas set up for us. They made staying here very easy and comfortable. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We will always remember our relaxing time at Casa Zenn.

    Gabriel2019-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a glorious 24 hours at Casa Zenn. How we wished we’d stayed longer…. A pure slice of tropical paradise and only just off the beaten track. A warm welcome from Tom and Hollie (and their 2 delightful cats) our well travelled hosts, with a refreshing home made lime juice, followed by a dip in the pool. Drinks on the veranda with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, jungle and sea. Dinner was a delicious plantain lasagne – an absolute must. And this was only one of the many tempting dishes available on the menu. Our en-suite bedroom was spacious, cool and comfortable with our own sitting area. Birds, butterflies and wildlife abound and it is worth getting up early and watching birds and monkeys from the veranda. After a great value hearty breakfast, we borrowed the boogie boards and drove 15 minutes to palm fringed Zancudo beach which was almost empty. A cold drink at Sol y Mar, and then sadly we had to collect our bags and say goodbye to Casa Zenn…
