Guestbook comments from the owner
You were on spot -- Elias was amazing: fun, thoughtful, and entergetic. He really made the vacation an experience and an adventure! We did many of the typical vacation things: ziplining, and snorkeling, but when I asked everyone to rate their top two experiences, here's what we got (and there are more than 2 answers as not everyone's answers were the same):



Watching the Olive Ridley turtles lay eggs, and learning about the village and its history with the turtles;

Fishing for tuna and reds, and more;

Cheering on the sabernaros as they competed to capture rings off a hanging string;

Driving up to Monte Verde and our fabulous night walk where we saw a two-toed sloth, pit viper, a prorcupine in a tree itching itself, sleeping jays, a hiding tarantula, and so much more;

Riding the rivers with guides and seeing crocodiles, screech owls, bats...;

Visiting the Guaitil Pottery makers and learning about their history and art;

snorkeling.

Just terrific!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Ostional. We especially enjoyed Elias, Luis and Daniel....in my opinion they make the house an experience rather than just somewhere to sleep. Elias is a perfect guide, he is full of knowledge, many suggestions for activities and fit right in with our family. Luis and Daniel prepared 3 excellent meals every day, we were so grateful to not have to worry about food. The meals were delicious and healthy. The home is in a remote but beautiful part of Guanacaste. The infinity pool and decks were a highlight of the home and the property is immaculately maintained. Elias helped to plan our week right from the beginning and it was perfect. Our 10 and 11 year old children were impressed with zip lining, deep sea fishing, ATVing through the mountains, surf lessons, sea turtles laying eggs, lounging by the infinity pool and visiting any of the numerous gorgeous beaches in the area. It was truly an amazing experience for all of us. Thank you to Mike for being so helpful with my many questions in the beginning and especially to Elias, Luis, Daniel, Fifi and Romido for making our week so memorable, educational and fun!

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ostional is a very wonderful Casa with a great staff and relaxing atmosphere. Our trip there was to familiarize ourselves with the area the people and the amenities. Elias was a great host suggesting places to go sharing his vast knowlege of the area and of all of costa rica. Ellias intrduced us to many local people and drove us anywhere anytime we wanted to go. We seen Turtles laying eggs on the beach. Went fishing with some Hainer and his brother. Saw many beautiful beaches. Each evening we were treated to a wonderful meal by Chef Louis and Elena both who made our stay unforgettable. Sharon Louis and Elana 8 yearold daughter was our spanish teacher and entertained and helped us alot. Best of all we met some friends at a wonderful Casa

A PLACE WHERE MAGICAL MOMENTS ARE MADE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Casa Ostional was the highlight of our trip traveling through Costa Rica. The house is spacious and well designed -- the view from the observation deck way up under the roof is spectacular and a perfect place to relax with a book and sunset. Plunging into the rim flow pool is the perfect way to start or end your day and for all moments in-between. Luis and Elena kept us comfortable and very well fed.

The property is well located for forays to beautiful, safe, secure and secluded beaches where there were few people to share it with. Elias' insider knowledge and local connections were invaluable -- from knowing those hidden beach gems and surprising us with cocoanut water from freshly picked cocoanuts, to a brilliant beachside restaurant that served the very best fish tacos we have ever eaten anywhere on our travels at (and sadly are not likely to find elsewhere) and flatbread I am still lusting after! We will never forget our moonlit evening with the Ridley turtles, quietly watching the laborious process of digging and laying the eggs.

SPECTACULAR VACATION. RELAXING, QUITE AND FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE.

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 weeks at this beautiful home. The nick name "glass house" tells it perfectly. The views, quality and privacy were just what we were looking for. This is our 5th trip to Costa Rica and first time at this home. It was truly a wonderful experience. The property made it great, the people (friends) staffing the home made it terrific. My wife and I woke every morning just as the sun came up and had our coffee on the back deck watching breath taking views of the ocean and listening to the monkey's.
Luis and Elena made breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. This was a treat as Luis is a magnificent cook and Elena quietly cleaned the house daily and took care of our laundry. I cannot say enough about this husband and wife team. Even though we were there for 3 weeks, every meal was unique and not repetitive. Luis used fresh, local produce, beef, chicken and pork in preparing all our meals. Elena made fresh juice for every meal. Esther, Elena's sister, and Sharon, their daughter welcomed us like family.
Now let's talk about Elias. Our driver, tour guide, companion and friend made this vacation first class. From picking us up at the airport in his Land Cruiser to dropping us off when we left, he was there for us 24/7 when we wanted him and out of sight when we needed some privacy. He was alerted from a family member when the turtles were hatching and drove us to the beach to see this incredible experience. He suggested beaches that were out of the way and beautiful. We wanted to see our Denver Bronco's play in the playoffs, he found a place for us to see the game. We rented ATV's for a day and he lead the way thru the mountains, beaches and thru rivers to search out monkeys. We cannot say enough about Elias. By the end of 3 weeks, we made a new family in Costa Rica. Elias, Luis, Elena, Esther and Sharon made our last trip to Costa Rica a real treat.
Casa Ostional sits high on the hillside and provides some of the best sunset views we have ever seen. We were able to totally relax, read, watch movies, play board games and forget about what was going on back home. We would highly recommend this home to anyone, family or group that wants to get away from it all and see what a beautiful place Costa Rica is without the tourist hype.
The owner, Mike, was very attentive to answering any questions we had prior to arriving and following up after we got home. Once again, everyone was first class.

Could not say enough good things regarding our trip to Ostional. Truly an experience of a lifetime. Our driver and tour guide Elias was wonderful and catered to all our needs. He is very knowledgable of the area, local connections, and activities to keep you busy. The staff prepared excellent food 3x a day! The home had all the amenties to truly relax and views that never ended. Thank you very much everyone at Casa Ostional for making this vacation one to remember forever.

ULTIMATE FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible vacation. With 2 16 year old boys and an 11 year old boy, it's hard to please everyone. Not this year, the boys had a blast on ATVs, zip lining, surfing, deep sea fishing, and just swimming in the ocean. Mom and Dad actually got a little R&R between all the excursions. Elias was incredible. He arranged anything and everything and truly became apart of our family. It was wonderful to have someone with us that knows the language, the locals and all the best places to visit. Lest I forget, Luis and Elena put the finishing touch on the best vacation ever. Not once did I have to think of what to make for breakfast, lunch dinner. Thank you to everyone at Casa Ostional. We'll be back!!!
