“Complete harmony with the Osa Peninsula and rain forest is built in!”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

If you are looking at the Osa Penninsula as a destination you value solitude in nature that is untrammeled by crowds that require every modern convenience. The Casa Sonrisa has the needed niceties to sleep, eat and minimally communicate with the outside world. There is nothing that interferes with listening to the sounds of the surrounding jungle and looking out at the surrounding trees-cape full of monkeys, macaws, toucans, parakeets and other wild neighbors. Bring your binoculars and bring your National Geographic identification cards---you'll be busy.

Casa Sonrisa sits high on the Casa Bambu property. It is the most private and perfect for watching the jungle wildlife. You are a short walk from the beachfront of Pan Dulce where the host keeps kayaks and chairs for the use of the guests.

I have stayed in the Casa Bambu cabinas on 5 occasions over a period of 12 years and have been amazed at the attention the owners give to maintaining and upgrading the cabinas. The onsite manager is William who serves as a tour guide, fix-it-man, fishing guide and keeper of the grounds and cabinas. His enthusiasm and energy is infectious and reflected in all aspects of the property and grounds.

This vacation is recommended for people active and able to move well without assistance. Climbing of stairs and negotiation of rough ground is required. There are balconies, stairs, and other hazards that would make it difficult for young children.

If you are looking to immerse yourself in the rain forest, with just the right amount of creature comfort, Casa Sonrisa will be perfect for you. The beach and the amenities that go with this waterfront are icing on the cake.

We had a wonderful stay in the bamboo house. It was perfect for our family (not sure about really young children here) to relax, explore, swim and enjoy nature. William, the manager and guide was awesome! We did not expect to see so much wildlife so close--we were thrilled by the monkeys, birds and butterflies. The house is beautiful and easy to enjoy! Thank you for sharing it!
