The Space

Our bamboo house is now available for rent.
It is an open air, hand built construction and a wonderful remote jungle living experience, yet is a minute's walk to the beach and about 8 km from town.
Monkeys visit almost daily to the trees near the house. There are birds and butterflies in abundance.. and we have the largest population of Scarlet Macaws in the world. Collared anteaters and sloths can be seen in the adjacent forest.

Located approximately 150 meters from a deserted tropical beach and surrounded by tropical gardens, the house has two bedrooms and can sleep four to five people. The main bedroom is on the first floor and has plenty of shelving storage and a queen bed. The guest bedroom is on the second floor loft and has a queen bed, built in desk and storage shelving. There is also a single day bed in the living room area and another in the screened in salon/sitting area. We have extra mattresses if you want to set up a camp bed on the floor of the casa (for example - for kids). Each bedroom has individual fans and lights for each person and all linens are included - pillows, sheets, blankets and bath towels. Please note - we are off grid and on solar power - so we are unable to guarantee charging of electronics, laptops etc.

The open kitchen is fully equipped with all dishes, cookware, tons of counter space, refrigeration and a gas stove, kitchen island bar area with stools. The kitchen countertops and sink have led lighting (on solar) for cooking in the evenings. The main floor includes a large bamboo and hardwood dining table that can seat 8-10 people, hammocks and lounge chairs.

The mid-level sitting area/sala includes our hand made furniture (a single bed/sofa) and is fully screened in with double doors that can open up wide during the day. The lower front deck lounge includes built in sofa, chairs and lovely view of the front gardens. Our caretaker will fill the elevated water tank from the well daily and check to be sure you have plenty of cooking gas - so you need not worry about anything.

The casa includes two bathrooms - one in the casa connected to an open air shower, and secondly our bamboo bathhouse adjacent to the house, which is located down a short stone pathway so you don't have to worry about shoes. It has a beautiful private outdoor shower and hand made artisan features throughout.

We also have a yoga deck/relaxation palapa located off the front gardens and situated right next to the pond. It's a covered open air deck perfect for yoga practice, a massage, or just listening to the frogs in the evenings. A recommended spot to sleep as well (not in rainy season).

We are renting on a weekly basis, and will consider shorter and longer stays as the schedule permits. Weekly and monthly rentals include weekly house cleaning.

  • My family and I absolutely loved the house. Denis, the caretaker, was very warm and welcoming and helped us get settled into the home. We loved waking up to the monkeys in the backyard trees and the amazing variety of birds.
    Anyone that wants a truly exotic experience should stay here.

  • Our stay at the Bamboo Jungle House was Amazing!!! On a scale of 10 it is a 15!! And Mary and Geoff are fantastic hosts! They made our special vacation (it was my twin sister's and my 60th birthday trip) very special!!
    Before our arrival they sent us tons of information to make sure we were prepared for the OSA Jungle experience. Then Geoff met us at the airport, made sure we found the grocery store to stock up, took us to the house and made sure we were settled in. Anything we needed help with, he took care of!
    And the house is Stunning!!! The pictures on airbnb are beautiful but it is so much better "in person"! The grounds are serene and the beach is perfect. We really can not think of anything that could have improved on our vacation.
    Thank you Geoff & Mary for sharing your home with us! And thank you airbnb for the means to find paradise!!!

  • We really enjoyed this beautiful open bamboo house in the jungle. It is very well designed and very comfortable. Get ready for full immersion in the rain forest, amongst howler monkeys and parrots. On top of it all, you're just a few hundred meters away from an isolated beach. The housekeeper, Dennis, was wonderful and came everyday to help with whatever we needed. He maintains a beautiful garden, filled with exotic plants. If you really want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. If you rent a car, you want a 4WD out here. We also had a chance to meet Mary and Geoff who were very welcoming. We would go again!

    Thank you Mary!

  • Such a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy nature. Incredible! We woke up to the sounds of monkeys, frogs, and birds... It was everything you could dream of and more. So relaxing and comforting to be literally SURROUNDED by tropical nature.
