Puerto Jimenez House Rental Photos and Description

LuxuryTree House top level/ Ocean Views/2 Kitchens, 2 Living Rooms, 2-16 people

Waking up on the third floor in king sized luxury and pulling back the soft hanging screens separating you and the jungle, and before you even take your first sip of coffee in bed, a cacophony begins including howler monkeys, macaws, parrots, toucans and who know what else lives in the canopy? As the sun rises above Golfo Dulce and Volcan Baru, filling the sky with the palette of a tropical morning air and smells, the choir of parrots takes flight and marvelous colors of the rainforest start the day. Even the adults squeal like kids when the monkeys swing by the 3 story vacation rental. After breakfast in the open air dining area, it’s time to kick off the summer holiday’ fitness program and you hit one of the many hiking trails through the 40-acre jungle sanctuary. Adventure abounds as you all head out towards the river and discover that you are passing under a troop of dozens of titi monkeys and their babies, joyfully feeding on organic cacao as they make their way through the canopy. You see frogs and lizards and insane looking bugs on leaves as big as your chest. Finally, it’s pool time! Out come the toys and the fresh tropical smoothies and you gather on the jungle patio to enjoy ocean views and the cocktail pool filled with natural spring-fed water. As you inhale the sublime odor of fresh red snapper dripping in mango sauce on the BBQ, you close your eyes and smile. You did a darn good job at finding paradise and an amazing vacation rental home near Puerto Jimenez.

About Blondie or Michael Cranford

Michael Cranford and Rebecca Amelia are both artists,We LOVE the Osa, the people here and especially the abundance of wildlife. You need not leave to find it. Just sit for a few minutes. It comes right here without leaving to find it! We invite you to experience nature as it was.

Blondie or Michael Cranford purchased this house in 1998

Why Blondie or Michael Cranford chose Puerto Jimenez

Being elevated just a bit off the beaches allows the cool breezes to drift up and gather the coolness from the rainforest. Being where the rainforest meets the sea, we have the perfect combination of both worlds! Beautiful ocean and Gulf views AND being cool and comfortable. With the sweeping ocean views and being at the cusp of rainforest meeting sea, you will leave refreshed and relaxed. Having lived on the OSA for 20 years and living where there is no grid power, we decided that Sombra de la Lapa was the perfect marriage of comfort and exotic wilderness with ocean breezes. Bask on the beach during the day but come home to cool comforts and sleep comfortably at night. No other guests walking by or disturbing you and all private property. Being on the grid means you have standard electricity while still lessening your footprint since 90% of Costa Rica electricity is derived from hydro power. We opted not to go with private solar or hydro systems since in all applications we know of in vacation rental homes, the systems cannot support leaving phones, laptops, cameras, iPods, etc being left plugged in and definitely cannot make ice. Being connected to the grid, allows you to be on vacation and not worry about some electronic device being left plugged in and having comforting cool fans or AC all night. It is nice to have luxury for the same price as other locations which cannot offer conveniences.

What makes this house unique

Because we are the only vacation property off the newly paved road which goes right into Puerto Jimenez, we not only offer our guests total and complete seclusion and privacy, but also very comfortable, easy access to town, beach and tours. Almost every other rental home on the OSA which offers this kind of seclusion is a minimum of 1.5 hrs from grocery stores, gas station, tours, etc and on a RUGGED 4 wheel only road. Many days of the year and after heavy rains, this road is impassable. Our wildlife reserve is yours to explore and still go out for dinner without it being a major expedition. If you have a large group or family and want to accommodate larger groups for weddings, reunions, etc ask us about our other 2 homes located on the same reserve. All 3 homes are located on opposite sides of the reserve so each home is totally and completely private. We also have 24/6 caretaker.

Guestbook comments from the owner

HomeAway asks all guests who leave a review, to sign up for an account in order to do so. Therefore, guests have told us they prefer not to leave a review on this site. However we have many more, up to date, reviews on FlipKey listing #195460.Feel free to see more up to date reviews on that site. Meanwhile I continue to send our guests a review request through both sites!



Come visit us! Cooler breezes, elevated views of the shimmering ocean where rainforest meets sea! Corcovado National Park is our neighbor and you can walk to it from our reserve.



PURA VIDA - a common greeting here which translates to "pure life".

That alone should make you want to come!

This is a bucket list item!

  • 5 of 5
I researched tree houses because it has been my wife's childhood dream to live in a treehouse now completed in a grand style! I chose this because even though a 4 wheel drive is needed to access the property, once there it is an easy walk & the privacy is beyond private - only saw someone when I had a couple questions , otherwise one could live like Tarzan and Jane - which we did! It was awesome- just as the view of the jungle, monkeys, tropical birds & floria. Although living in the "open" canopy (no walls) may seem primitive, having electricity for a fridge, fans, wifi, hot running water makes this place seem like a paradise jungle canopy well work checking it off your bucket list even if it was never on ( but it should be)
Also visit the coco farm which Blondie's help we had an awesome informative tour. We are in our 60's and enjoyed every second / wishing we could have spend more time and discovered this sooner when put children were still home as this is a must do experience.

Unique chance to commune with nature

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Lapa's Home in January with our two teenage sons, and I can say without doubt that I've never stayed in a house so interesting and creative, nor one that allows such close contact with nature. The living room, dining area, and kitchen are open air, and it was not uncommon for a giant butterfly to flutter through as we were hanging out on the couch. Each day, we watched monkeys swing through the canopy just feet away from us, and we spent a whole morning watching a mama sloth moving like molasses through a tree right beside the living room, her baby clamped like a starfish to her belly. Masses of macaws, toucans, and scores of other birds flew around (and occasionally through!) the house each day.

This open air living is not for everyone, but if you want to experience the wildlife of the Osa, this is the place. The experience is edgy in the very best way--you're not looking at the jungle through double-paned glass in a climate-controlled hotel room, you're living right in it. During cicada season (which is when we were there), that means dealing with the nearby racket of cicadas and occasionally having them dive bomb you at night when they're drawn to the house lights. For me, that kind of experience is a plus--making the tropical experience real and not some kind of Disney fabrication.

We loved the little swimming pool, accessed by its toad-proof stepping stones. We loved the many artistic touches throughout the house created by Michael and Blondie, who were helpful and friendly and gave wonderful tips on where to go and what to do. Our stay there was truly memorable!

Seclusion in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and teenage kids stayed at the Lapa's home for 3 nights. This was the first stop to starting our vacation. We were looking for a private place that gave us the opportunity to relax and be summerged with nature. This is absolutely the place to be.

The private secluded road to this place is an adventure by itself, which is about 1/2 mile from the main road. You enter the jungle in a narrow dirt road climbing up into the property. When we arrived there, the grounds, the home and the view were breathtaking. Manicured grounds surrounded the front of the property and a jungle bordered the rest. We were welcomed by Wilberg, the inn keeper who was very friendly. We arrived late in the afternoon, and to our surprise, it was the time that the monkeys came out to feed. We saw at least 10 monkey's on our first day there including a mama with her baby in her back.

The view of this home is outstanding! You can see the ocean from afar. I made a point to get up during sunrise at about 5 to 5:30 AM. Toucans, lapas, and many other birds, flew by and made their calling, the whole jungle seemed to be awakening...an amazing experience. Lots of butterflies (blue especially) and hummingbirds.

The house was as it is showed on the picture. I actually think that the pictures don't do justice to its beauty. It is an open plan, which means that you dont have walls keeping insects from visiting the premises and the heat and cool breezes surround you in the main gathering areas. There are fans and screened rooms to keep the bugs out, and 1 room with air conditioning. The pool was a great plus!

There are 3 bedrooms with plenty of beds. The carpentry, woodworking using local trees is amazing. The imagination that these owners used to make this home is outstanding. The art in the home is their own creation and very beautiful.

The proprerty is closed to Puerto Jimenez. We shopped for groceries, and cooked dinner and breakfast at the home. We also walked the trials that are in the property and it was like a miniature Corcovado. The beaches and rivers are closed by and there are plenty of restaurants and adventures for the whole family.

You have choices as to where to stay and we stayed at some beautiful resorts with all the comforts that you can think off afterwards in Costa Rica, but this home tops it all as far as experiencing living with nature and having your own little solutide for at least a few days!

WOW WOW WOW

  • 5 of 5
WOW was the word we said frequently on this trip! This place is AMAZING! We were thrilled each day to different birds, monkeys, a silky anteater too! We saw all this right form the tree house without even leaving! We sat each morning sipping coffee and waited to see who would come visit us. We used the hiking trails on the property often, walked up the river early mornings for some thrilling bird watching and had a nice salad from the garden right on site. It is total privacy. We also loved to river rock dipping pool. It was nice to know that it is private and we could skinny dip with no fear of anyone walking in on us! We thought the tree house was decorated & furnished with lots of love & thought to comfort and even though I have a fear of heights, I felt totally safe & conquered that fear! The tree house thrilled us every day & it was a great way to spend a vacation-totally different than any other we have had. We got to meet the owners who are artists & found them to be fun loving & caring people. Kudos go to the caretakers who were available for any questions we had. Since the owners were not there for most of our stay, it felt very comforting to know there was help very close. They are not kidding when they say that you get total privacy & 120 acres feels REALLY big when you are not from a huge farm! We had a blast & would love to go back.

Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family, parents and nephew spent two weeks on the Osa and stayed at Lapa House. Blondie made renting the house and planning activities incredibly easy and I found all of the advice she gave to be right on the mark. When we arrived, there was a bunch of bananas from the property waiting for us. They were so good that I realized I'd been eating facsimilies all of my life. There were 7 of us and the house was spacious and comfortable. Having the pool there was perfect for our 4 year old twins who would wake up in the morning & jump right in. The only rooms that are enclosed are the bedrooms so one needs to be comfortable in the outdoors to enjoy the house. All of the common areas are shaded for most of the day, though, so it was very comfortable. Considering the heat and humidity, a condo or totally enclosed house would have been very unpleasant. The open design is the only way to go on the Osa. The house was very clean and we were extremely well cared for while we were there. Mike came by a few times to say hello and he proved himself to be an interesting and entertaining fellow. When not relaxing at the house, we enjoyed zip lining, kayaking, hiking and a boat tour. We also toured FincaKobo, a cocoa farm, which should not be missed. All of these activities were arranged by Blondie and her assistance made all the difference. We had two weeks in the paradise that is Lapa House and we look forward to returning one day.

Notes:
Ask about 4 or 5 day specials during green season. . It's best to plan a day in San Jose on your arrival and a day upon your return to meet up with connecting International flights. To travel to this part of Costa Rica , I recommend at least 7-10 days to see it all and get some hammock time in. Many families with young children stay with us at the Lapa's house. We leave our dog ( Sombra ) we have a live on site gardener who will feed them if you are away or prefer not to feed them but she occasionally stays at the house. She's a sweet German Shepard.. Also shorter 4 or 5 day stays available for last minute travelers. We can help you with car rental, taxis, and domestic airfare.
