On arrival in San Jose, we got a message from our first hosts in Punta Uva to say that due to the imminent arrival of Hurricane Otto (first hurricane to hit CR in 174 years), they would have to close for safety reasons, which we totally understood. So, we phoned Lynn to tell her of our problems, she immediately contacted...

This is our 3rd time at Casa Bambu in 4 years - our family loves it here - the combination of wildlife, beaches, surf, and remoteness can't be beat. You may see my prior review for the details on the house and my opinion of it. We don't usually return to vacation spots as we like to explore, but this...

We were so happy when we arrived for our stay at Casa Bambu, the house was open and waiting for us. Spider monkeys greeted us on arrival. We were provided with helpful information before our arrival. The house location is amazing, just steps from the beach and the house was more than we expected, wide open to the outdoors. During...

Our 48 hours at Casa Bambu only scratched the surface of experiencing the beauty and excitement around the Osa Peninsula! Casa Bambu owners and staff were welcoming, warm and hospitable. The house was amazingly comfortable, airy and well maintained. The beach was close and the area surrounding the house was absolutely beautiful. We went for a guided hike through the...

What an amazing place to spend a few nights in Costa Rica. After spending two days hiking around the Sirena Ranger station in Corovado -- I was amazed to see so many more monkeys and macaws hanging arounds Casa Bambú. It never got old!

We loved our time at Casa Sonrisa! Because this particular house sits back a bit on the hill, I think we saw even more wildlife than those closer to the beach, although the view of the Golfo Dulce was beautiful too. Case Sonrisa backs up to an area that could almost be considered a monkey playground! We saw 4 types...

I had the great pleasure of visiting the Osa Peninsula on July 16 - 23, 2016. It was a bit of trek from San Jose to Osa, but well worth all of the trouble. I went on VRBO to find the wonderful Casa Bambu. They actually have 4 houses neatly seperated on a great piece of paradise in Matapalo. We...

Had eight people in Casa Bambu and Casa Linda for a week...June 16-24 (2016). Trip was excellent and it was great to see Kirk and William. We had several troops of howlers close by on most mornings, and all of the other varieties of monkeys coming through everyday. Fun, uncrowded, head high surf all week. Most of our group did...
