Cassidy and his crew have set up and maintained a wonderful house in the midst of the beautiful Osa, near Corcovado National Park and Cano Island. The house is perfect for a family or group of friends to get away and have the jungle be a part of your daily routine. Howler monkeys and White faced Capuchins help to make sure you are awake in time to enjoy all the beautiful and birds that past your door step and if you are adventurous at night you may even spot a kinkajou or porcupine right outside. The house is comfortable and has just about everything you need to make you feel right at home!
Cassidy's home in Sierpe Del Pacifico is a once in a lifetime adventure/treat. If you want to explore Corcovado on your own terms, this is the place for you. It's located on the Sierpe river just 15 minutes south (toward Drake's Bay) of the town of Sierpe. Cassidy's business partner, Guillermo, will load you, your bags and your groceries onto his boat, drive you up to the dock (where you will catch various boats for all kinds of excursions), walk you to your home, give you a cell phone to call him and then motorboat back to Sierpe, leaving you amidst howler monkeys, parrots, sloths, white-faced monkeys and all that entails. We literally fell asleep to the group howls of howler monkeys and watched the capuchin monkeys from our bedroom upon awakening. There are bitey-bugs because you really are in the same type of terrain as Corcovado, so prepare for that. But if that doesn't scare you off, you will be rewarded. It has the same terrain as Corcovado because the developers of these lots of land didn't hack down the jungle, instead they made small clearings for a few homes and then created similar rustic trails as Corcovado. The difference between a tour at the Corcovado Park (yes you should still go!) or Drake's Bay and Sierpe Del Pacifico is that your dock below (house is well appointed up high) will not be the ocean but the mangroves, which you can kayak. Just waiting for a boat by the dock you will see countless muddy holes and if you are still enough, reddish-purple crabs will start to peak out of almost every one. The photos of the inside of this home don't do the place justice. It is luscious with gorgeous wrap around decks and an observation patio, perfect to sit in after a long day of hiking with a drink in one hand, binoculars in the other and watch the parrots and macaws call to each other and congregate at day's end. Cassidy is thorough and available to walk you through anything that seems unclear, especially if you've never been to the area. Guillermo, as his counterweight, doesn't explain much but simply has everything covered. A good team. A great hidden gem.
