Our guests have a private path to the beach, acres of pristine jungle to explore. We have a gated driveway and are in an exclusive area that sits above the ocean with only a few neighbors that you will never come across.
Interaction with Guests
We are in the United States currently awaiting the arrival of a baby boy. We have a full time caretaker and a management company that is ready to assist all of your needs from flights within Costa Rica, car rentals, tour coordination of all types of adventures from whale watching to surfing. They are ready to help you with no additional cost to you.
Matapalo is a very special area that is still full of pristine jungle, exotic flowers and animals and some of the warmest locals you will meet. It's a community that is run off of solar power, living life in the most green way imaginable and it's an inspiration to be a part of!
We have a local "collectivo" that runs several times a day to Puerto Jimenez, the local pueblo. You can check with our caretaker for the most current times.
Other Things to Note
Due to being one of the few raw places left in Costa Rica most of our roads are not paved, with many rios crossing the way. You will need a 4x4 when visiting the area.
We expect our guest to respect the wildlife. There is no hunting, no feeding the animals and no agitating the animals. We cherish the wildlife here and we want them to have a beautiful environment to live in synchronistically with us so we can enjoy them for our lifetimes and future generations to come.
About the Host, Eva And Brian
In the late 1990s, Brian Lovely took a break from the fashion photography and film production world to surf the secret breaks at Cost Rica’s Cabo Matapalo. He fell in love with the mountainous jungle he saw from his board and with the friendly people he met on shore and soon purchased there. One one of his yearly return trips to Matapalo, he saw a jaguar walk across the point of the property in broad daylight—an exceedingly rare and portentous event. From that day on, he called the place Punta Jaguar—Jaguar Point.
Eva Fleischauer and Brian met on a fashion shoot in the early 90s; reconnecting years later. After sharing his secret place with Eva on several trips, he also shared his dream to live there fulltime. The two decided to go off the fashion and production grid and throw themselves into the jungle for real. They traded cameras and slates for hammers and a DIY treehouse in the jungle. Now a married couple, the Lovelys camped out in the jungle for two and a half years with no electricity, using ice blocks to keep food cold and a camp stove to cook as they handcrafted their dream home. Their efforts resulted in a beautiful three story treehouse in the jungle canopy, which they now lovingly share with you.
