Absolutely fantastic. Olivier and Isabelle are wonderful hosts who gave their time to educate us in the surrounding areas and local wildlife and flora.
The lodge was great, comfortable beds, good shower, mini kitchen which we used. The property was more than expected and the locale is stunningly beautiful.
Our first morning we had a Delicious breakfast by the pool - felt like we were in heaven!
The pool area was great to cool off when the heat gets too much..
Would highly recommend and if in the area again would want to stay here.
This was a truly remarkable place to stay. We expected it to be beautiful but the pictures do not do it justice. We came to Costa Rica looking for paradise and found it in the Phidjie Lodge!
The small lodge itself was wonderful. GREAT for a romantic setting. We didn't spend much time inside, though, because we wanted to be out and about - even when we came home.
The reason we didn't want to be inside when we came home was because the pool is amazing. Olivier built the deck himself, and it is the perfect place to sit and relax after a day of trekking to beaches, sanctuaries or national parks. The pool is nice and cool and the wildlife in the trees around the pool is amazing. We saw hummingbirds, toucans, lizards, iguanas, and squirrels. It was as if the wildlife sanctuary was brought to us.
Also, Olivier and his wife are just wonderful people. Sooooo kind, so sweet, so helpful! They gave us great advice, and were so respectful of us.
This is a steal. Wonderful, wonderful place to stay!! You absolutely must stay there if you are choosing to be in the area. We visited Uvita Beach, Manuel Antonio, and Domincal from Ojochal.
Heads up if you stay here - the restaurant Exotica was amazing - you must have a dinner there. Also, be careful on the drive through Ojochal because over one creek crossing there is a drop off that is disguised by the grass. Just stay on the road, don't drive through the grass.
Hello Marie and Antonio,
What a nive review, you made our day Antonio ! Thank you so much !
I'm no waiting for the same on Tripadvisor, but i know both of you are very busy ;-) By the way, did you saw Quetzales ?
Hope you're good and business growing fast, more than you want.
Upon arriving in Costa Rica we seemed to drive and drive and felt like we were getting lost until we saw the Phidgie Lodge sign . We turned in , got out of our rental car and stepped into paradise. Oliver and Isabelle welcomed us with sincerity and warmth. Our cabin was adorable and was decorated so nice and
very clean-- very complimentary to the surroundings . Oliver is extremely talented and had made much of the furniture , artwork, etc very attractive and worked beautifully into the surroundings. After unpacking and realizing that we weren't in a dream, we walked down to the pool. It was perfect!!! The temperature of the pool was perfect and the pool area was so relaxing. We saw an Iguana, little lizards, a huge toad, lots of lovely birds and
butterflies. We spent 3 nights there and
enjoyed it so much . It is a beautiful place thanks to Oliver and Isabella (and Gods creation)
I guess if I would change "1" thing it might be to upgrade the mattress a little.
I would highly recommend Phidgie Lodge to everyone who would like to
have a totally relaxing experience in Costa Rica !!!
We had the BEST time at Phidjie Lodge. The gardens are a fantastic bird watching adventure. We loved waking up to hummingbirds and grey necks playing. The house was cozy and had everything we needed. Olivier and Isobel are a delight, so sweet and friendly. They were right there with anything we needed. Ojochal is a cute little nook a short bumpy drive to the great beaches of the area.
We would gladly come back:)
Olivier and Isabelle are like instant family when you get to their oasis. It has two bungalows which have exceptional design and wood work (by Olivier who aside from other things, is a professional carpenter). The garden around them oozes with life, fragrances and sounds. The pool area is great to hang out at with a table and a roof deck. The location is exceptional with walking distance to some of the island's best restaurants. Ambience at Phidjie is truly exceptional.
Isabelle and Olivier are a wonderful couple who are the hardest working hosts we've met yet through Airbnb who want to make your visit to this part of the world a memorable time. Their place is just darling. And the accommodations are very adequate, it has everything you can need. We are very happy to have chosen this place to stay during our visit to Costa Rica. Thank you!
