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
