About This Listing
This house is situated on a hill overlooking lush, tropical gardens. The 5-hectare-property offers a serene experience where one only hears the noises of the jungle. About 3.5 ha of the property is manicured gardens, while the other 1.5 remains wild and open to exploration at any guest's whim. It is not uncommon to wake up to the sights and sounds of howler monkeys, toucans, and scarlet macaws (for example).
The house is comprised of two bedrooms--one with a queen-sized bed, the other with a double bed, with an indoor bathroom and an outdoor one, each connecting to one of the bedrooms. There is also a large couch that can comfortably sleep one more. The outdoor kitchen is fully equipped, and also has a washer and dryer. There is also the option of renting the adjacent bunker for an extra $65 ($ 15 more per person over 2) a night which has a bedroom with two double beds and a bathroom.
Agujas is a 15-minute drive from Puerto Jimenez, a great access point to the famous Corcovado National Park--a place teeming with wildlife. It is also a 45-minute drive to Matapalo, famous for its three world-class surfbreaks.
The bus to Puerto Jimenez is a short walk from the house. From Puerto Jimenez there is public transport to Carate (the access point to the national park), Matapalo, and San Jose among other places.
Garden Hacienda is ideal for couples who like privacy and enjoy the serenity and diversity of the tropics, though, it can also easily house groups.
Garden Hacienda was an absolutely beautiful and amazing place to stay in the Osa Peninsula. It's very secluded and over looks farms and trees. If you are a bird lover or watcher this is definitely the place for you. There were tons of beautiful birds and we even saw 2 Scarlet Macaws while sitting on the gorgeous porch. The house was clean and Nelson, the caretaker was very nice and courteous. I totally recommend staying here.
