PICTURESQUE 2 BEDROOM RIVERFRONT VILLA IN SIERPE

Osa Peninsula Villa Rental Photos and Description

Charming, Colorful, Fully Furnished Modern Villa With Private Boat Dock

Charming, colorful, fully furnished two-bedroom, two-bathroom modern villa located on riverfront property with private boat dock. This is Costa Rica at its most stunning and diverse, as it was 20 years ago, yet with all the features and comforts of home!

This is the place for an authentic Costa Rican adventure! Perfect for families, nature lovers, explorers and fishermen. See gorgeous wildlife from your front balcony and on trips along the river – scarlet macaws, toucans, spider and howler monkeys, sloths and other incredible species.

The sea is about 30 minutes away by boat. Bass, snook, red snapper, tuna, sailfish and marlin are just a few of the fish you can find, and reasonably priced guides are located in Sierpe village, less than 10 minutes from the house. Your guide can arrange for your catch to be freshly cooked at one of the local open-air restaurants overlooking the river.

Corcovado National Park, one of the most diverse biological corridors in the world, is just a boat ride away. Corcovado is known for its dolphin and whale populations. Cano Island, Drake’s Bay and the Osa peninsula offer stunning snorkeling, diving, and swimming on pristine beaches, as well as guided nature walks for all ages and abilities. You can arrange a tour at any of the local restaurants - Las Vegas is the main port of call, and there is also Kokopeli and

La Perla Del Sur. The tour company Sierpe Azul also has some fabulous cultural tours of local tribes, where you can learn about and purchase their tribal carved masks, as well as to the mysterious ancient spheres that are found here. Our house manager, Shani, can arrange a special tour by horseback to visit local hill people for the day - visitors have told us it was the most memorable part of their visit. If you are interested in turtles, a major conservation area is about 30-40 minutes away, along with a number of stunning Pacific beaches, caves and waterfalls. There's a packet of information at the house, and we'll be happy to share more information on any or all of these options

Sierpe town is not overpopulated with tourists and has retained a safe, friendly atmosphere not often found in the big resort towns.

This is a tropical paradise in a tranquil, scenic location!

About Barbara Wallace

Steve and Barbara live in North Carolina but wanted to spend several months a year in Costa Rica. After looking at locations up and down the coast, they chose Sierpe for its friendly atmosphere, stunning wildlife, great fishing, and proximity to some of the most pristine ecological areas on the planet.

Barbara Wallace purchased this villa in 2013

Why Barbara Wallace chose Osa Peninsula

You will find all the comforts of home, and our property manager, Shani, will meet you when you arrive, get you settled, and make sure you know about all the natural wonders and amazing attractions of this exquisite area. If you want to just relax, you can view wildlife right from the balcony! Very comfortable, colorful and tastefully furnished casa.

What makes this villa unique

The biological diversity of the area is world famous, whether you want nature walks, boat trips or snorkeling/diving. Fabulous fishing too.

The property is furnished with Costa Rican art - colorful and homelike! The views from the balcony over the river, with scarlet macaws overhead and toucans in the trees, are unmatched!

Down by the River

  • 5 of 5
This house was well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The air conditioning was clutch due to the humidity in the South Pacific. The balcony is a great place to relax and observe the river. Shani, the property manager, was very helpful and managed to book some last minute tours the minute we landed. Hang out on the dock, and you'll find the river is an excellent place to check out some wildlife, especially the ibis and a gang of scarlet macaws. Unfortunately we did not spot any monkeys from the house, but we found some playing a quick boat trip up the river. Due to it's close proximity to Sierpe, this is a great location to begin any adventures on Rio Sierpe, Pacific Ocean, Osa, or Corocovado. Would be nice to have access to kayaks to explore the river more. And unfortunately the grill and internet were out of commission. But there's plenty of pots and an interesting DVD collection to keep you entertained in the evenings.

Owner's Response: Hi Sean,

So glad you enjoyed the villa and this wonderful, unspoiled part of Costa Rica! We weren't aware that the BBQ wasn't working and are seeking a new one - we'll add it back to the listing when we have one. The kayaks are a good idea and we hope to add them to the villa in the near future. We don't seem to be able to get internet at the villa, but Kokopelli Restaurant in Sierpe has free internet all day and the owner is happy to have you use it.

So glad to host you and looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Perfect homebase for your Costa Rican adventure

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (including 2 adult children & daughter's fiance) stayed here for a week. We loved the area, the village of Sierpe--and the house was close enough to be accessible to the town for shops/restaurants & tour companies, but off the beaten path enough to be peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the porch & watching the river and the wildlife that visited us and listening to the birds & frogs. The house was clean and well-equipped and we would definitely return. We were able to do a lot of exploring and it was close enough to several beaches that we checked out several. (about 30-45 min drive).

Perfect Jungle Villa

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, our daughter and son-in-law and their baby all stayed here for two weeks and ventured out to waterfalls, beaches and visits to our son-in-law's family. It was great to relax in the morning on the deck and watch the Squirrel Monkeys swing through the trees and the birds wake up: Ibis, Egrets, Macaws, Parrots, Hummingbirds and more.

This is a very wonderful home with a completely equipped kitchen. It has air conditioning throughout. The bathrooms are large and there is hot water in the showers, not a given in Costa Rica. There are guide books in the house for local places as well as a bird book which you will certainly want to use.

Boats leave here for Corcovado Game Reserve where we saw Tapir, Couati, three species of monkeys, and sloths and many birds.
This home is a great base for seeing the diversity of beaches, wildlife and culture on the Osa peninsula.

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of five with three children, 14, 12 and 7 years old, who stayed in this house for 9 days in june 2013. The house was the best house we stayed in during our 38-days vacation in Costa Rica:

It was very clean and easy to keep clean, there were no mosquitos in the house because it is on the second floor (above mosquito-level) and because all the windows have mosquito nets, a very important factor for your well being. The beds were so nice (even with the 7-year old in the middle), the kitchen was well equiped (I baked bread several mornings, which was impossible elsewhere), it was a relief to be able to put on the aircondition once in a while and the two bathrooms were a big 'help' in the mornings. There is a lovely balcon where you can sit and enjoy both the beautiful view and the sounds of the animals and below the house there is both a washing machine and a dryer wich also is a big help when you are a family.

The garden is a very big plus to the house. It is beautiful and our kids went out every morning to look for animals. They found scarlett macaws, big and small iguanas, raccoons, big blue and red crabs and in the river we saw crocodiles (not near the house though, but the neighbour had one on his bank one day!).

Having the river so close to the house was really a speciel experience. Sometimes in the mornings two of the kids and I went down to sit on the little pontoon bridge to read or just to enjoy the incredible beautiful sights. We went for a tourist boatride and the river is very varied and lovely to go down by and it would have been nice if there was a boat or a kayak in the house for the guests. But the owner have told me that there will be, so it will be perfect for the next guests.

The house, the garden and the river are beautiful and really nice, but there isn't much to do in the area if you don't want to spend a fortune on tourist tours (we found them very expensive compared to the east coast). But if you go for rides in your car, all the area have scenic views. You can also go by car to the isle of Osa, on the east side, and it is so pretty. We left the main road a couple of times and the nature is impressive and varies a lot. We also slept one night in Puerto Jiménez because we wanted to take a tour to Cabo Matapalo and both the beach and the tour (with Everyday Adventure) was just incredible.

If Costa Rica wasn't so far away (we live in Denmark), we would come back soon and we would stay in this lovely house again.

Owner's Response: So glad your family had a wonderful time, and we'll look forward to seeing you again soon! I've done some further exploration and found a wide variety of tours at a range of prices - I've left a packet of information in the villa so guests can enjoy all that the area has to offer. Shani, our manager, can also arrange special trips for you, and she'll get you the best prices and the most exciting choices!
