About the property

Exqusite tropical home close to all amenities and activities.

4 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms Sleeps 8

Casa Manglar is a beautiful tropical home with 4 bedrooms each with A/C. It offers both a master and junior suite each with walk in closets and private bathrooms. These suites are gems in Puerto Jimenez. Casa Manglar is the family home of the owners of the resort 'La Chosa del Manglar'. The home is located on the same property as the resort but they are completely separate from each other. The house is extraordinary in it's sense of oneness with the surrounding environment. The house so smoothly blends into the natural surroundings that is sometimes difficult to define if one is inside or outside the house. It's a one of a kind. Enjoy the private swimming pool!

At Casa Manglar you are GUARANTEED to see WILDLIFE. How certain are we? Well, have you ever sat in your garden and seen Scarlet Macaws, Monkey's or a Kinkajou's? We have! Our guests have told us they saw more wildlife at here than at any other location during their Costa Rica vacation.

Come and stay with us, whether for a few days or a couple of weeks. We are only a 5 minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and only 350 meters from one of the nicest beaches here. Gentle waves will lull you on the beautiful chocolate sand beaches, cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) will fly and play throughout the gardens. This is truly a birders paradise. You don't even have to leave the house to see these impressive Macaws and the many other varieties of exotic birds that visit here.

Hiking, kayaking, birding, horseback riding, surfing, canopying, snorkeling & camping are all easily practiced from 'Casa Manglar'. Do what you wish, when you wish, walk the beaches or hang-out in the property, it's up to you. Come spend some time with us. Make 'Casa Manglar' your home on the OSA. There really isn't anything we can say with words that can do it justice. so we simply suggest that you visit and see for yourselves what Casa Manglar has to offer. Remember that all photos were taken on the property. Bring your cameras folks!!.

How do you want to spend your vacation? Whether your days are action packed or totally peaceful & restful, you will love coming back to your home away from home at 'Casa Manglar'. Why leave monkeys to look for monkeys? They're right here. With over four acres of gardens, lush landscaping and natural mangroves to explore you might just want to stay right here for awhile. The magnificent Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) can be seen daily, literally dropping out of the sky for you to get a very up close peek. You will never forget these spectacular creatures, which lodge all over the Osa Peninsula. There are tropical, brightly colored flowers, fruits and plants filling the grounds some of which may eventually end up in your tummy. Butterflies, birds, lizards, flowers, all abound, it's like being in a tropical fairy tale!

See you in paradise

Pura Vida

Casa Manglar, pristine OSA peninsula close to Corcovado National Park
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Our family of eight enjoyed every aspect of our week at Casa Manglar and would definately stay agai.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and well stocked with a welcome basket of essentials for our stay. The staff at the resort connected to the property assisted us with anything we needed including booking outings, recommending places to see, and pointing us in the right direction to find the beach, the bank, stores, or midnight karaoke with the local residents. Wildlife were literally at the doorstep with scarlet macaws, spider monkeys, capuchin monkeys, geckos, parrots, etc. around every day. It was a perfect combination of adventure and relaxation and we are grateful for the experience.

Mangrove House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here; the house was very interesting with a nice observation deck. Saw lots of wildlife right outside (and inside) the living areas. The house was showing a bit of wear and tear but overall experience was very good and i would return in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thanks for feedback regarding wear and tear of Casa Manglar. It's 10 years old now and the tropics have a way of being brutal, but we will defintiely review and add a bit more TLC. Cheers, Andrew
