About this listing

Have your own private off-the-grid cabin in the jungle of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, and just steps from a secluded beach. You'll see monkeys off your front porch, pick your own fresh mangoes off the tree in your front yard, and go for a surf at an excellent point break just steps away. Perfect for couples, singles, small families, adventure travelers, eco-travelers, surfers, fishermen, birders, hikers, and anyone looking to really get away from it all.

The space

Nature-lovers' dream! Perfect for couples, small families, surfers, fishermen, birders, hikers...and anyone looking for a secluded retreat in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings. ...Costa Rica's secret!

We are an off-the-grid property in the heart of the Osa peninsula, surrounded by pristine, solitary beaches and lush jungle. Wake up to the sounds of monkeys, macaws, and tumbling surf just outside your door. Just steps to a secluded beach with excellent surf. Walk to a nearby waterfall and world-class surf spots, and an internationally acclaimed restaurant and bar.

Individual, private cabin in a very quiet, secure, lush tropical property. Includes your own kitchen, and you can pick your own mangoes for breakfast, while watching the monkeys swing from the banana trees just off your front porch.

Cabins also include a private bathroom, fans, and refrigerator. Your cabina features hardwood floors throughout, and traditional Tico construction. Queen bed with mosquito netting, and safes. Free WiFi (yes, in the jungle) is also available.

Nearby day excursions include Corcovado National Preserve (home to some of the planet's greatest biological diversity) guided nature hikes, surf trips, birding, diving, sailing, and even whale-watching.

Out here, there are no high-rises, no electrical lines cluttering the view of the ocean, no noisy discos, and no crowds on the beaches...you will often have an entire beach all to yourself, even on weekends! At night, fall asleep to nothing more than the sounds of wildlife and waves.

Cabinas Ola Mar is one of the few places where you really can get away from it all!

Guest access

In addition to your fully equipped, self-contained cabin, guests have access to our open air Casa Grande - with internet and telephone access, hammocks and comfy couch for lounging, an extensive lending library of books, skin care products, binoculars, etc. We also have expansive lawn areas for viewing the night sky without the nuisance of light pollution or lounging during the day and being entertained by the extensive wildlife that flos through the yard.

Interaction with guests

During your stay there will always be someone on hand - either one of the owners or a manager to help answer any questions, give you directions, make suggestions or meet any of your other needs. That being said, you are welcome to just stay to yourself in your cabin with the assurance you will not be distrurbed.

Jim and Trish are warm hosts. Their property is gorgeous. Monkey, leaf cutter ants, Macaws, you name it. Just steps from a rocky and wonderful beach, not a long walk along the beach to Pan Dulce for surfing. The cabina was beautiful, kitchen was well-equipped. Two bathrooms and showers, so it would be really easy to share the space with several people. Loved it, highly recommend!

The place is very nice however, I was not given the cabin I had reserved on Airbnb. Traveling with my family of four, I I reserved the cabin with two bedrooms and three beds, but was put in the cabin with one bedroom and two daybeds. When I asked why this occurred, no answer was given nor was anything done to remedy the error. Groups traveling of three or more or families should communicate with the host before hand to ensure they will receive the cabin they booked online. Also a bit troublesome was that the wifi did not work in the cabins as advertised.

Shanti Wasi is a wonderful place to be. It is remote and beautiful and enchanted with wildlife. You live among the inhabitants of the jungle, especially monkeys. We saw squirrel monkeys, spider monkeys, and howlers. One night a howler slept in the trees above our place! We saw frogs, an Armadillo, and other wildlife in our midst. The beach and rivers are walking distance as well as nearby walks to waterfalls. You can look at the night sky full of stars and spend time in the hammock. If you need anything Jim and Trish are very nice and helpful. You can eat at a nearby restaurant that is walking distance but otherwise stock up at BM grocery store in Puerto Jimenez. We plan to return to this wonderland soon!

We had three awesome nights in the nature at this place. Although we booked a jungle tour through Corcovado we saw most of the animals actual during our stay there. Different monkeys like spider monkeys, parrots like the scarlet macaws and beautiful butterflies. The area is also a good spot for surfing and nice waves. The beach next to the house offers beautiful sunsets, but it's stony. However the next non stony beach is just a 15 min walk. We had a really good and quiet time. Trish and others of the Shanti Wasi family were always around and open to help. Would definitely come back to visit this beautiful piece of earth again.

This was our second time to Shanti Wasi. We hope to return again next year. It was awesome. I love the feeling of being on the edge of the jungle and yet walking distance to the beach. Very rugged and natural; monkey's, lapas, birds of all shapes and sizes. Wonderful. Rachel and Rooster were great hosts and helped out a ton!

Owner-Operator of Cabinas Ola Mar ((URL HIDDEN) I've lived here on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica for 20 years. I love surfing and exploring. As a host, I am conscientious and here to help, as I know what it's like to travel and stay in a new place. I want to make sure all my guests have what they need to have the best time possible here in the very special place that is Costa Rica's precious Osa peninsula.
