Nature Lovers Home, steps away from one of the prettiest beaches on the Osa Peninsula known as Playa Platanares or Preciosa Beach. Daily visitors, monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, iguanas and more.
Perfect for families with children! Toys, games, puzzles and trampoline.
This home is our primary residence for half of the year. We are open to renting it to responsible families and couples during the months we are in Canada.
Located 4 miles from Puerto Jimenez.
Our space is unique in that it is a fully functional home. This is not just a vacation rental, it is our second home. It is absolutely perfect for travellers with children as there are toys, games, puzzles, and a trampoline. It is a 1 minute walk from a beautiful beach that is great for boogie boarding, surfing and even fishing. At higher tide there can be bigger waves for playing in and at low tide there are small pools in the sand that a toddler can play in. It really is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Osa!
On the downside -- there is no wifi within the house. You can take a one minute walk to either of the two hotels next door, enjoy lunch, dinner or a drink and access wifi; enjoy a swim, beer or coffee while you are there. The hotel Agua Dulce charges a small fee to hang out and swim for the day. Also - due to recent storms (as of late June 2017) and electrical surges our tv and microwave have gone on the fritz. We have gone through multiple televisions and microwaves over the years and it appears that we cannot win ..either the saltwater in the air or the electrical surges won't permit that either lasts long in our home. On the positive -- you are truly going to have to disconnect to the world of devices, tv, etc. We hope that you can find peace in the nature that surrounds you and that the lack of wifi or tv will not dampen your stay at our home.
You have access to the entire home.
Interaction with guests
I am currently in Canada but I am available to help you make reservations for tours and put you in contact with the right people. I have a maid who lives right next door who can come and clean each morning and via her phone you can contact with me with any needs or concerns you may have. When you message me about the area you will see that I have a wealth of information to share with you. I have run a business in tourism in the Osa for 13 years now. I have friends and community there who are never far away and can be there to meet and greet you and offer any advice you may need.
Other things to note
I do have two dogs and one cat. They are outdoor animals. They have been raised with children and I have many children at my house all the time. They love the attention. The maid will pass by each morning to feed them and give them water. I also have a dog walker. This is my animals home. As I explained to you this is not just a vacation rental but our home and that is why the animals go with it. We hope you understand and that you are animal lovers.
- We don't like shoes used in the upper level of the home as we have stunning flooring and want to maintain its beauty. Also please do not roll a suitcase across the floors upstairs or the steps going up. They scratch easily so please take extra care with the hardwood floors upstairs.
Hello my name is Cara. I live half the year in Canada and half in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica. My husband and I own and operate a sportfishing business here in Costa Rica. I have two children and am a homeschooling mother due to our nomadic lifestyle as a family. We love to travel, meet new people, my son surfs everywhere he can, my husband fishes everywhere he can, and my daughter and I love photography and shopping.
We are very easy going people. We are self sufficient, clean and respectful.
