Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough things about Atrevida. From the moment we contacted them to the moment we checked out things were seamless. Very well organized from the owner to the maid. This was our first attempt at using an independent home search. Needless to say we were a little nervous but we will say you don't have to be with this property.

We traveled as a family of 5 and this was the perfect location for us. The property manager Pascal was an incredible help in finding the best places to use for our excursions. We hiked, fished, zip lined and toured the chocolate plantation. These were all recommended by and set up by Pascal and the were perfect. Carlos was a comforting presence around the property but never intrusive. A smile and a "PURA Vida" was what you got most from Carlos but he was at hand to help you in any way. He also built an awesome fire on beach one night for us to enjoy. Luis the cook was out of this world. He cooked our meals and everyone at every bite every night. That says something when you have 3 teenagers to feed. I wanted to have a do nothing vacation and I handed him the money to shop for the groceries for us. At the end of the trip he handed me back the receipts and the change from his shopping. This absolutely won me over and of course earned him an even bigger tip. Lol.

On to the house, one word... PERFECT. The mix of jungle and private beach made this the best vacation my family has had. The wildlife around was so close all the time. We even bought bananas to feed the monkeys, one took it right out of my sons hand. The house was very clean thanks to a wonderful maid that we didn't get to know very well because we didn't see her much. That's a good thing. She was never a bother. She came in got her job done and was out of the way. Very appreciative of this privacy they seemed they made every attempt to give us. We are already looking at dates to go back again very soon.

Oh a couple bits piece of advice... bug spray lots of it. Eat your dinners by candlelight to cut down on the pesty bugs. Remember it's the jungle and the house is openaired so you will have bugs. Just use limited lighting at night and spray, which you can pick up a natural kind in the airport in Puerto Jimenez, and you should be fine. It's beautiful, comfortable and inviting as the pictures show. All I can say now... GO AND EXPECT TO BE AMAZED.

Don't miss this GEM

  • 5 of 5

I do not have enough time to say how truly wonderful this place was. We were there with our 3 teenage children and couldn't have asked for this experience to be better. The home is beautiful, comfortable and clean. Pascal was a wonderful host to our stay in Osa. He helped line up our excursion and all were very well planned. Carlos was on sight to help with anything and everything. Very kind man. Thankful for him. Luis was our chef. He shopped for us and made the most wonderful meals. I gave him money to grocery shop,which he did, at the end of our trip he provided the receipts and the unspent money. This earned him a bigger tip. Lol. If you go to Osa stay here it's the absolute best place I've been to in my journeys throughout the Caribbean. I am planning a later this year return with just my wife and we will try to stay here again. Thanks to all already mentioned for making this one of our best vacations ever.

March 25 - 31, 2017

The house is amazing. We fully enjoyed our stay. It is clean and very well kept.

The house is completely off the grid. Un-Plugged!

There is a Cellular WiFi device onsite but it's connection and speed is very limited.

We quickly realized how attached to our phones we are in our daily lives as we put them away.

The open air living areas are very tranquil. It's wonderful to relax in the living room at night by candlelight and listen to the sounds of nature. There are lights if you prefer.

The sounds of the jungle and the waves of the gulf fill the air both day and night.

The bedrooms are well screened and comfortable. Everything is - as the pictures and descriptions indicate.

The pool is refreshing after a long day on the beach or in the jungle.

This place is totally safe. It is a place to find absolute relaxation.

The bedrooms all have safes and the doors lock with keys. Our experience was that neither were truly necessary.

It is a very short walk to a virtually private stretch of beaches that are amazing.

The staff is all very attentive and caring and never overbearing.

Pascal is a wonderful Manager and Host and is nearby to answer questions. He checks in daily.

He can setup (concierge) any trips you would like to venture on. He will also setup your first meal(s) if you let him know in advance.

The grounds keeper Carlos is a very sweet and hard working man. He cleaned the pool daily of the leaves and seeds from the surrounding plants. Pura Vida Carlos!

Luis was the star of our trip. His cooking is fabulous. He is a truly gifted chef.

He is a patient, kind and caring soul that truly adapts to his guests.

He will cook up whatever you purchase to make and pleasantly surprise you with sides that you would not have thought to ask for.

Our Spanish was limited but we all managed to communicate. Only a couple of minor misunderstandings.

We had never had the in-house chef experience - Luis made it wonderful! His wife cleans the house daily and is also very sweet.

Casa Atrevida is wonderful!

Jungle Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this house with 5 other friends, and everyone had a glorious vacation. The man who cooked for us, genial Luis, was most accommodating with requests and an excellent chef! The woman scheduled to be the house keeper bailed after one day (she got a better gig) but Luis was able to have a replacement, Aranese, the very next day. Aranese kept up with all of our needs, and I ever recruited her to French braid my hair several days. The private guard/grounds keeper, Carlos, was a joy! He greeted us all with the ubiquitous "Pura Vida" every time we saw him. He kept the pool perfect and was always there with helpful advice on nearby attractions. Interestingly enough, we saw more wildlife near this beautiful house than we saw on our other jungle excursions. The private beach really is only a few minutes walk from the house and was incredibly beautiful. The pictures of the beach don"t do it justice! Carlos was always near to help with transport of beach items. The house, the beach, the people and the country ALL exceeded our expectations! Do yourself a favor and vacation here!

Paradise (w/complications)

  • 4 of 5

I will keep it simple, cause I could write all day about this beautiful place.


-amazing house

-super comfortable

-little pool is awesome

-beach is beautiful

-house is secluded (for the most part...see cons)

-staff is super nice and accommodating

-food cooked for us was delicious

-wildlife everywhere - monkeys every morning, scarlett macaws, sloths

-Puerto Jimenez is an awesome little town

-sunrise over Gulfo Dulce


- Caretakers house is about 40 meters away. He is not invasive and really nice but still not super private.

- The maid stayed for around 5 hours and mopped the floor like 6 times. We asked Pascal the manager for some privacy though and he was more than accommodating. We had the place to ourselves for the rest of the time.

- You cannot drink the tap water, and they had no drinking water available when we arrived. Luis however made us some delicious juice from fresh fruit, and he used the tap water. Thus, even though we enjoyed his food and drink a lot, we all got sick. We eventually had to got to town and get our own drinking water. No biggie but the stomach bug was pretty rough for all of us.

- Neighbors decided to burn their brush resulting in a plume of smoke blowing through the house. This was aggravating my wife's asthma. The manager Pascal had them put the fire out, but all our stuff smelled like smoke after that.

Im summary:

The house was amazing, the place was amazing, the staff was friendly and attentive, but a few negative factors added up to not quite a five star rating. Still, I would recommend.

We loved every minute at Atrevida! We could not have chosen a better location or house! The open-air design is so unique yet we felt extremely comfortable and at one with nature the entire time! The sounds of nature were all we'd hear as we drifted off to sleep. Howler monkeys and macaws were our morning wake-up call. Carlos is one of a kind with a heart of gold! Luis made incredible meals for us with fresh local ingredients. The safes in the rooms were available but we never used them as we felt completely comfortable with the people and our surroundings. The pool was our favorite spot to relax before dinner and Carlos kept it beautifully maintained. Pascal provided a wealth of knowledge and helped us book wonderful excursions with locals. The beach BBQ was incredible! Carlos and Luis spent all day preparing it and what resulted was a evening of a lifetime. We will be back very soon!
