We loved Casa Atrevida!!
I cannot say enough good things about this property. We came to Costa Rica to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. My husband and I, our 18-year-old daughter, 14-year-old son and a friend of my daughters. The house is beautiful. Jackie, the housekeeper came every morning to straighten up. I highly recommend paying for Pablo to cook for you. His dishes were amazing....fried plantains, fresh Pico de gallo, fresh guacamole, pancakes and eggs for breakfast, fresh fish, Gallo Pinto, I could go on and on. He made a different kind of delicious fresh fruit juice every night and my kids loved that. Pablo does not speak very much English but my daughter's friend is fluent in Spanish so it worked out well. The house was a perfect get-a-way for family time with no internet and no tv. We saw monkeys every day in the front and backyard. The Howler monkeys were our alarm clocks at around 4:45 am every morning. I truly didn't feel the need to go on any wildlife tours because we had that in our backyard!! We had our own private beach where we paddle boarded every day (we brought our own). The pool was a perfect way to cool off after a day at the beach. My 14-year-old definitely got our money's worth out of the pool. We went at the end of May so it was warm without air conditioner, but it wasn't unbearable, and the ceiling fans kept you cool at night. You most definitely need to wear bug spray at all times, and you will see an occasional frog sitting beside you in the living room.
Pascal was super helpful with suggestions on where to go and he checked in on us every day. Everything about the staff and the property was fabulous. If you want a true Costa Rican, Pura Vita experience, in a non-touristy area and you love adventure then this is the place for you! Pura Vita
Beautiful, special home with the best of the jungle and beach
Our stay at this home is quite possibly my favorite vacation rental we have ever found! This house is magnificent, the pictures cannot adequately capture the quality of the home. We loved interacting with Carlos who is the caretaker who lives in front of the property - he is so kind and helpful! Pablo is a fantastic chef and made some truly delicious meals. We spent our days enjoying the proerty, hiking around, watching the monkeys in the trees and many species of birds, and we loved the beach access. The beach is gorgeous and no one is around. We loved ot play in the surf, walk the beach, play frisbee and watch the sunsets. We did a day hike in Corcovado and cannot recomend that enough if you enjoy wildlife and nature. Johanna was our contact and she went above and beyond with her helpfulness and kindness. This place was truly special and our favorite part of our Costa Rica trip. And if you are worried about no A/C, we were there in April, the hottest month, and were so very comfortable at night with the breeze and fan. I truly hope we cna make it back to this splendid place one day.
A Gem Surrounded by wildlife
Our family of 9 stayed here for 7 nights. It is a beautiful home that 2 of us had been to before. There is no A/C in the bedrooms, if that is a must you may want to consider staying elsewhere. The wildlife surrounding the home is incredible and can be loud at all hours of the day. If you want a true jungle experience you will get it here. The chef Pablo made incredible dishes with great flavor. He doesn't speak English and I think a few things were lost in translation but the food was delicious. There is a washer and dryer onsite which we knew and planned accordingly bringing less clothing with. Sadly the dryer was not working and with the humidity we had a very difficult time getting our clothes dry. This was a pretty big inconvenience as the clothes did not smell good after hang drying. Carlos lives in a home on the property and keeps an eye on things. He is a great guy that always had a smile and was willing to help in anyway. We all felt extremely safe and comfortable with him there. All in all it was a good stay and we made great memories there.
Paradise by the beach
A unique and fabulous property. We enjoyed the unique house and having the private chef was wonderful. I cannot praise Pablo enough...fresh food prepared in imaginative ways. Waking to howler monkeys was unique. Service was excellent and the beach was as wonderful as described. We hope to be back. The only slight negative...the beds were hard for my taste and the local bird tour guide suggested by Pascal was a complete waste of time and money...we saw more birds on our own...when a bird guide shows up in flip flops with no spotting scope just say no! We should have gone on the tour to the Chocolate Farm which was fabulous...we stopped on our way out and regretted not making time to book a tour..and you do need a reservation! Overall I loved this property.
Beautiful indoor outdoor house in a wildlife paradise
Casa Atrevida was astounding in person, the pictures don't capture it's full beauty. Within minutes of arriving we found a sloth in one of the trees where we parked. We saw all four species of monkeys in Costa Rica from the house and on the walkways to the beach, including squirrel monkeys! The bamboo and teak wood used in the architecture are beautiful and sturdy. The highlight of our stay more than these aspects was Pablo, the professional chef that comes to cook three meals a day. His cooking was so creative and beautiful. He cooked almost all vegan food for us and it was fantastic! We loved Pablo and his cooking. That was a beautiful part of our day, three times a day. The first night was my dad's birthday and he prepared a gorgeous fruit cake. Thank you Pablo!
The beach out front is gorgeous and perfect for swimming. We found little creatures and fish right there and saw pelicans, scarlet macaws, toucans, and hawks along the beach and at the house. The house flows with nature, the animals travel around and sometimes through it while the property still maintains the feel of an upscale eco villa. We can't wait to come back to the Osa and I would never stay anywhere else.
La casa genial y todo el personal muy atento y amable con nosotros.
Hemos pasado unos dias fantasticos. La casa espectacular, ideal para pasar unos dias en corcovado. Todo muy limpio y el personal de servicio muy atento a nuestras necesidades. Un 10!!! Muchas gracias por todo.
