Staying at this house is the quintessential Osa Peninsula experience. The river, rain forest, and Pacific Ocean can all be easily enjoyed from it's front door. Adventure and authenticity abound!

The space
A stay at Sierpe del Pacifico is Costa Rica at its finest...remote and comfortable...nature in its purest form all around you...adventure rich...and much more affordable for families than the Drake Bay Eco-Lodges

This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here, each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation. Start your mornings with the sounds of howler monkeys, the sight of tropical sunrises, and the aroma of Costa Rican coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. Fill you days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure, all available directly from your front steps. Finally, wind down the evening watching the flight of white ibis across the sunset over Isla Violin with a cold cervesa or mojito in hand. Sound like paradise to you...we think so too!

Our cabina's location on the Sierpe River - a fully navigable river that flows into the Pacific Ocean - serves as a direct connection to all of the best adventure activities that Costa Rica is known for. Accessible directly from the front steps of the cabina are 5 kilometers of hiking trails that weave through primary rainforest, wetlands, mangroves, and 3 tropical fruit filled gardens - all great for wildlife watching and birding. Feel free to help yourself to the fruit as well, the resident monkeys certainly do! Four kayaks are stored on-site and are yours to use for exploring the river and its tributaries.

Are you a fan of fishing? If so, you'll be glad to know that some sizable red snapper and snook have been caught from the two riverfront piers. Finally, if you just want to sit back and enjoy the wide open views of three coastal mountain ranges, Isla Violin, and the daily flights of macaws, toucans, and parrots over the river, two additional hill-top scenic overlook verandas are just a couple minutes walk from the cabina.

In addition to the on-site activities, it is highly recommended that you arrange for a variety of tour boats to pick you up at the riverfront dock for some of the ocean related activities that have made this area so popular with tourists. Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling/diving (Costa Rica's most renowned) and dolphin/whale watching at Cano Island, and wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park.

The cabina itself is 5 years old and was built in the signature Sierpe del Pacifico 'refined rustic' style. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of screened in windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 215 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely off the grid here, a well appointed solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone coverage will keep you comfortable and connected. Ask owner about internet options. The beds are all custom made from exotic hardwoods, have orthopedic mattresses, and use high thread count sheets.

While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a decent sized hill. While the cabina is newer and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid” and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but 4 overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition!

This home is not suitable for children aged 2 and under. Ask about suitability for children ages 3-6.

Please note that this home is not located in Drake Bay proper. Instead it is located on the Sierpe River. Most of the tours and attractions that people enjoy from Drake Bay can be enjoyed from this home as well. Please ask owner for details about location.

Guest access
You will have access to the entirety of the home. The home is located on a 63 acre community with 3 other cottages, only one of which has regular guests. You will have access to all community areas including hiking trails, 3 gardens, 2 docks, and 4 kayaks.

Other things to note
Please read house rules for very important information regarding the nature of staying at an off the grid, solar powered, boat access only home in the rainforest.
