We loved the finca.....Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Finca. The house is well maintained and very private. We were able to see all kinds of wildlife and were never bored here. Monkeys were jumping from trees to trees, dolphins were swimming in the bay in front of the property, and all kinds of birds were flying daily. The sunrise at the beach was amazing. We played in the water with phosphorescent plankton at night (so cool!). Swimming and kayaking at the beach is wonderful! Just don’t forget to pack watershoes as it is rocky.

The house was nice and cool and we never felt the need to have A/C here. The kitchen was well equipped for everyday cooking. We made fresh star fruit juice everyday, which we picked from the garden.

Colin arranged pretty much everything we needed for the stay and responded questions quickly. The caretaker, Manuel, was very kind and helpful. One day, we asked him to pick up fish from the towns nearby. He could not find any, so he went fishing and got us fish and cleaned them up for us! He checked on us everyday either in-person or via e-mail.

Our 6-year-old son did not want to leave the finca (neither did we…) and said this was the best place to stay. Thank you, Colin and Manuel. We can’t wait to go back!

Secluded Paradise- much more interesting than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing property to stay at- WE LOVED IT! I was apprehensive at first, being so secluded, but any concerns were easily put to rest by Manuel, the expert caretaker. The house is beautiful with lovely wood (furniture made by Manuel!), was very clean when we arrived, and Colin has pretty much thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. It was so fun to sleep under the mosquito nets and just listen to nature. The grounds are secluded and quiet- we saw so many monkeys, macaws and morphos up close and personal. It's rare to find a place on earth where you can still be away from it all. The kitchen has everything you need and although they do have a fridge chest, I wouldn't bring too much stuff that requires refrigeration as it doesn't keep things cold, more cool! But it is still better than nothing. We had one unforeseeable issue with a power failure one night and even though there was a bit of a storm, Manuel came over right away in his boat and was able to figure out the problem which we were so grateful for. He even stayed to make sure the system was recharging before he left. The water in the Golfo Dulce is so warm so we swam daily- in the morning the water had a bit more debris in it (leaves, branches etc not garbage) but the afternoons were clean and clear. We used the kayaks several times including once at night where we were able to see a bit of the phosphorescent plankton Colin mentions on his web site! We had such a relaxing time at this beautiful property, and loved every minute of our stay. We would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Summer - I am glad you survived your visit. Unfortunately there was nearly a full moon when you were visiting which interfered with viewing the phosphorescent plankton. The best viewing is on a night when the moon is not up. Thanks! Colin

Our jungle experience

  • 5 of 5

Looking at the pictures of the property we thought it will be an adventure; but it can't be captured in the pictures!

From the ride to the property, to arriving to the beach and walking into the jungle bungalow; all was breathtaking.

Place is very clean, stocked, well maintained, exotic, private and peaceful.

We loved it there and wished we had at least one more day.

Colin was very helpful and Manuel, who was taking care of us, did great job.

We had a fruit from the garden and trees, used a kayaks, Manuel took us fishing and we had no need to go anywhere else, just listened to the jungle and walked around with flash lights.

Thank you Colin and Manuel we would love to come back

Finca de Nada

  • 5 of 5

I gave our trip to Finca de Nada a 5 star rating - it is excellent for what it is advertised to be: a remote, off-the-grid, private, jungle experience. The cabina is a thatched-roofed, well-crafted, large (2-story), completely open structure with bamboo railings (not walls) and hardwood floors. While you are there you will be sharing the place with lizards, geckos, bats, toads and insects - we thought of it as "glamping" and enjoyed everything but the insects. Use lots of repellent. There are nets over the beds for sleeping and the insects are bothersome mostly after dark when the lights are on. We were there for 10 days and recommend it to anyone wanting to relax, read, snorkel, swim, kayak, fish, meditate, watch monkeys and macaws, wake up early to the sounds of the jungle, sweat (it's humid there), marvel at nature...

The caretaker Manuel shows up every few days and is wonderful. Colin the owner will answer any questions thoroughly and promptly.

Give it a try - we are glad we did!

FANTASTIC private adventure...peaceful lodge in the heart of the jungle!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED staying at this beachfront rancho! You will definitely want to bring your camera and beach sandals! It was quite a tropical adventure! The peaceful boat ride across part of the bay to the private entrance was beautiful. The lodge itself has sort of a Swiss Family Robinson feeling to it....it's beautiful and rustic at the same time. It was very very clean and tidy and nicely decorated. There were all kinds of exotic animal sounds and beautiful views. The beds were comfortable and our kids loved it here! We had a VERY fun and Pura Vida kind of experience here....you will really enjoy this experience! There was internet available, but we kept it off and enjoyed the sounds of nature and the ecolodge sort of feeling we got. It felt like we were on a private island. Very very peaceful!!! We will definitely consider staying here again. Fun times in the Osa Peninsula! Thank you Colin, for your kindness and hospitality! PURA VIDA!
