We've had a wonderful time staying at Geoff and Mary's property. This has been an objective lesson for us in low impact living and Geoff and Mary were both gracious and enthusiastic sharing their love for Osa with us. The house is beautifully built and maintained and the grounds are gorgeous.
For an urban crowd like us, adjusting to living so close to nature takes some time... and I am not sure we fully succeeded in the 5 days we've been there. But we could not have asked for better hosts than Geoff and Mary - or a better place to do it than Osa.
Mary and Goeff are the best hosts. They were welcoming and very fast to respond to any of our needs. We stayed 1 week and this house is magical. We had the pleasure of waking up with the howler monkeys every morning. What a treat. Denis, their caretaker was attentive and made sure we never ran out of water nor gaz. We plan on renting this property again as this is as close to heaven as you can get.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your jungle beach house!! Denis, the on-site host, was so nice and helpful, and the osa tropical staff did an excellent job helping us to decide on and book our excursions. We loved being able to hear the monkeys at night and also to see the many different monkey families and birds come through the wooded areas close by. The beach was spectacular, especially as the tide came in.
We really appreciated all of the information provided by our hostess, Mary, prior to our stay. She was also very quick to answer any questions we might have had to prepare for our trip.
We truly had a lovely holiday!! Thanks so much for hosting us!! Michelle and Stephan
I had a wonderful stay at Mary and Geoff's jungle casa! The house is well-designed and definitely met my expectations. You'll usually have the beach all to yourself and it's just a couple minute walk from the house. Location-wise you're about a 1/2 hour drive from town, yet closer to surfing spots and Corcovado. Traveling by road was slow when I was there (roughly 20 km/h), so plan that into your schedule. I'd say you're practically off-grid at the house, which is nice, though I managed to sometimes get a cell signal in the guest room and at the beach. Communication with Mary and Geoff was excellent, and the local tour operator was super helpful. Denis, the caretaker, will give you an orientation on the house when you check-in. He comes every morning and let's you know when he's leaving so you'll have some privacy. I highly recommend!
So glad you had a good visit. And thank you so much for the great suggestions! We'll certainly put them into the mix! We'd welcome you back anytime! Best, Mary and Geoff.
This was my third stay with Mary and Geoff. I felt like I was visiting relatives. Mary and Geoff and very accommodating, warm and welcoming to both me and my 7 year old granddaughter. The location of their home is convenient to the 1 and A train. Everything you need is close by: Starbucks, grocery store, restaurants including a new sushi place.
I had a very comfortable 10 day stay at Mary and Geoff's apartment. The room was exactly as described - clean, quiet, spacious and cozy. The apartment is located in a well maintained building in a safe neighborhood, very close to the subway station, restaurants and supermarkets. Mary and Geoff are excellent hosts who ensured I felt at home at all times. They provided me with important information and insights about the city and also cooked a delicious meal on my last day. I would definitely choose this place again whenever I return to New York and would highly recommend it.
That's so kind. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay Nitesh. Please do come again! Safe travels, our friend.
Mary and Geoff are gracious, friendly and personable hosts who offered great advice and tips for getting around town and more. The room is really large as is their apt especially for NYC and it's located easily off the A or 1 train, literally around the corner from the A and I feel safe here at all hours. So thankful to have found this spot and lovely couple who welcomed me with a delicious dinner my first night.
You will not meet people nicer or more accommodating than Mary and Geoff. I was in town for a wedding, and my schedule changed constantly up until the morning of my arrival (impacting the time we had initially scheduled for me to check in and pick up my apartment key). Mary and Geoff were understanding throughout all the changes, and when I (finally) arrived, they went out of their way to make sure I was settled and comfortable-Mary even arranged for a car service to pick me up the next morning and take me to the airport. The guest room was perfect-large and spacious and very comfortable. The apartment was conveniently located two blocks from the subway-very easy to get to. Definitely stay here if you are looking for a place in the area.
This was our 1st time using AirBnB. It couldn't have turned out better. We were familiar with the neighborhood. That's why we wanted to stay at this property. Mary and Geoff were (are) fine hosts. They are easygoing, friendly, welcoming and, since we arrived at just the right time, strudelistic as well. Everything was just as they advertised with a very nice, comfortable room in a great apartment within a well kept apartment complex. Thanks Mary & Geoff. You made it a fun experience for us.

I was pleasantly surprised, I was expecting a great welcome, but you never know before you actually arrive. I must say that everything was absolutely perfect: large room, nicely decorated, very clean house. Mary and Geoff are very welcoming, and very discrete too. The neighborhood is very quiet and it's really well connected. Highly recommended.
Mary was an awesome and clean guest. I would host her again anytime.
Mary booked our apartment for her colleagues Lisa and Cat, who were both wonderful guests. Though I didn't have the chance to meet Mary in person, she was very easy to communicate with and helped make the check-in process a breeze. I'd definitely recommend her (and Cat and Lisa) to future hosts.
This guest was great! Very clean and tidy, which made it easy for me to transition to my next guest.
They were wonderful guests. Quiet, clean, respectful. I guess that says it all!
I have known Mary for over 25 years and she has always been one of the most responsible, hard working and conscientious people I have known. As a host to me on a many occasions, she has always made sure I had everything I needed and more.
Geoff and Mary's place in the Southwestern corner of Costa Rican jungle is truly a wondrous place. The construction of their house is open and airy and very remote with easy access to the beach. Their place in Manhattan is located in such a pretty place near Ft. Tryon and Inwood parks, with good access to the main part of the city.
