At one with nature

We had a wonderful time at Casa Lutetia. It is a spacious home in a beautiful setting. David and Natalia are extremely helpful and made the trip even better by offering assistance and information whenever needed. We saw monkeys from the deck every day, what an experience! Our family (with 2 teenagers) walked to the beautiful, secluded beach almost every day, as well. The house is secluded yet close enough to a grocery store and restaurants, plus plenty of other beautiful beaches if you want to explore more. The only downfall is that because you are in such a beautiful natural setting, some of nature's creatures find their way into the home. This is no fault of the owners and if you want the joy of a jungle experience, you need to be prepared for some unexpected surprises.

Absolutely unique experience in the Costa Rican jungle

We feel so fortunate to find this place for our recent stay on in Costa Rica (especially now, after having seen a bit around the Central Pacific Coast of the country). It has it all: a stunning view of the ocean (from both the first and the second levels) through the canopy, unmatched privacy (if you crave for it), perfect wild-watching location (especially early in the morning and just before the sunset) and an easy and pleasant access to a couple of secluded beaches in the area. If you are looking for some nightlife, time your trip around the week of the TheBestFest (the annual 3-day music festival in the jungle, which seemed out of place to us, given the vulnerability of the region's wildlife). The best dining options can be found in Ojochal (be sure to make reservations though), with Exotica being our favorite place. The hosts (Natalia and David) will make the arrangements easy for you. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!!!

Peaceful, private, rustic beach vacation

We LOVED our time at this home. The owners are SUPER helpful, available by e-mail or skype before and during our stay, helping reserve activities and arrange transportation. The property is big, clean, with great views, and only a few minutes walk from the beach. The beach is secluded, rocky during high tide, but sandy and swim-able during low tide. We took the owners suggestion and headed down to the next beach (by a trail through the woods for a few minutes) where there is a wonderful cave you can walk through, and the waves are a blast to play in. The shower in the home is a little funky in terms of consistent water availability and pressure, but that adds to the feeling of adventure, and all was explained to us when we arrived. The kitchen is well organized and functional. If you don't have a car it is tricky getting around and taxis are expensive, but do-able. The upstairs room is all open, including the bathroom, and the bath up there is only cold water. We were two adult friends and two young teenage boys and we all loved it. The white faced monkeys were in the trees right by the house one morning, checking us out. The owners have a dog, Lucy, who adopts the visitors. She does not come in to the house, but sleeps peacefully out doors and is ready to show you the trail to the beach, watch over you, and make sure you get back to the house on the right path. A true host! Do be warned that the owners have two other dogs who stay on their nearby property. If you need to go on the owner's property, I would recommend that you e-mail the owner first to let him know and have the dogs put in the house or on a leash. The dogs are protective of their property and we had a bad experience with one of them. Other than that one incident, we had an amazing time and would go back in a heart beat.

spacious jungle house walking distance to beach

Natalia and David's spacious, clean and comfortable (a bit sparsely furnished) house exceeded our expectations! We were greeeted with fresh banana bread and coconut water, as well as Lucy the dog, who became our guide and companion for the week. David and Natalia were available and helpful with suggestions for activities and happy to make reservations as needed. The gorgeous secluded beach was a pleasant walk through the jungle and provided hours of floating and bobbing in gently warm Pacific ocean surf.
The house is located 10 to 30 minutes from a variety of eateries, grocery store and activities, and less than an hour to the gateway for boat tours through mangroves and to amazing bio-diverse national park. We had a great time ziplining (Osa Canopy Tours), short hike and swimming near waterfalls (near location where Tilapia is caught and fried to order - our favorite meal) and fine dining in Ojachal (15 minute drive) as well as trinket shopping and people watching in surfing town of Dominical (30 min drive).

We had a wonderful time at Casa Escondida! The home was beautiful and well taken care of. There was no air conditioning which was as struggle, but sill worth it! There were monkey's right outside of our window and lots of interesting flora and fauna to appreciate right outside our window! We would definitely recommend this home or any of the other homes on the property :)
