Description of the Puerto Jimenez vacation home rental
UNBELIEVABLE PRICE for a luxury ocean view home with pool! This is a Three Bedroom Open Air Jungle House located in Southern Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. Sitting on over 120 acres of primary and secondary forest, this is a great place to get away from it all. Spectacular views of the Gulfo Dulce and minutes away from spectacular swimming & surfing beaches. ASK about our 5 night special for unrented weeks for only $1200 for 5 nights for max of 4 people! This special is for last minute rentals with less than 30 days advance reservations ONLY- otherwise WEEKLY rental only.

Most of the rooms in the home are completely free of walls, windows and doors. Imagine that! All bedrooms are screened in and have wonderful views of the rainforest behind the house. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, doors and comfy beds with comfy matresses. 2 Kitchens, and 2 living rooms can accommodate any group nicely. Each room has a great view, you can even see the ocean from our jacuzzi tub. Monkeys, Toucans, and Parrots visit daily. Sloths, eagles, owls, anteaters, Tyras and White hawks visit weekly. National Geographic calls our backyard the second most bio-diverse area in the world, home to more plant and animal species than North America . If you like the end of the road and timeless seclusion.Sombra de La Lapa is the place for you!

Nice cool pool & deck look towards the Golfo Dulce. This elegant home is a showpiece of tropical living! NOTE: The house is NOT child proof at all & is best for adults & honeymooners or families without small children.

This rental home is about 1 hr from Matapalo.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A group of 13 for family reunion rented both the main house & tree house for 2 weeks- what a blast. Chef services were excellent! We were within minutes of getting everywhere on an excellent road- roads going towards Matapalo & Carate were a bit difficult to travel & we were glad that we went to see it but that we did not have to drive that road everywhere we went! Chocolate farm, zip line, beach, the pool, the nice hiking trails, the MONKEYS, we had a blast. We'd definitely go back & recommend it. ENJOY. The house is luxurious & furnished very nicely & the tree house is breathtaking! We were the first tree house guests! WOW- even the youngest (age 6) loved the houses- esp the pools!
