This house blends eco tourism with simple luxury. A beautiful setting and experience. We were 2 couples with 2 adult children for a total of 6. A perfect place to unplug, you can relax by the pool, walk to the beach, or take on a variety of activities throughout the region. We are a pretty active group and some of the activities we enjoyed included hiking, canyoneering, surfing, and snorkeling. Osa Tropical in nearby Puerto Jimenez was very helpful in arranging our activities. There is so much wildlife to be seen right from the backyard. We arranged for our kitchen to be stocked with typical Costa Rican fare and Monica cooked wonderful meals for us every night. We woke up to the sounds of nature and beautiful sunrises every morning. Martina's is a local establishment where we enjoyed connecting with many of the "ex-pat" locals. There are a couple of "Eco Resorts" close by to visit as well. Ed & Lynn, the property owners were extremely helpful in planning the travel details of our trip. We were so impressed by not only the kindness of all the people we met but also the dedication to conservation and sustainability. Truly one of the last unspoiled areas on the planet and a great reminder to make good choices with our natural resources in our everyday lives. Highly recommend this home and the Osa Peninsula to anyone seeking a new adventure. We will be back!
Casa Jungua is one of the most special places we have ever stayed. The photos don’t do justice to the views and surrounding forest. It’s the best feeling in the world sitting on the deck and watching the sunrise in the morning with Scarlett Macaws flying back and forth below you. Garden wildlife abounds with spider and cappuchin monkeys, kinkajous, coatis, macaws, toucans and birds of prey and there is a great walking track to the beach from the garden. Lynn was a wonderful host who told us all we needed to know in advance while Noel and Monica looked after us so well once we arrived. We should mention the road to the house is not for the faint hearted but so worth it if you are up for the adventure...and gets easier the more you do it! Don’t hesitate in booking. We hope to be back some day.
