“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This house and location is absolutely amazing! Not only is the house stunning but the care takers Rueben and Adrianna were the kindest, most loving care takers imaginable. Leading up to the trip Mark was great at communicating and giving us all the details needed for an outstanding vacation. Adrianna will cook for you, Rueben will show you sloths, Monkey's, birds etc. We took many trips to the beach, river, fished, relaxed and had a once in a lifetime experience. Honestly, there is to much to list in a review! One of the most incredible experiences in 20+ years to Costa Rica. I would highly recommend this house for those wanting to get away from it all and experience what nature and Costa Rica living is all about. We even sent our 10 year old daughter to school with Rueben and Adrianna's daughter for a morning. Great people, great spirit and fantastic house with all the amenities you will ever need.

“YOU + HOUSE + JUNGLE = TOTAL NATURE”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I'm somewhat reluctant to write this review because I don't want to give away one of Osa's best kept secrets, but I refuse to be selfish with this hidden treasure!

People often strive and search for a true nature "getaway" experience and become disappointed finding themselves among lots of other fellow homosapions. It's no easy task to escape people traffic in the 21st century.

However, we have found the answer!

If you love Costa Rica and, in particular, the CR nature and wildlife, and wish to see it without anybody else around, Caso Sierpe is the place. Who isn't down for Macaws, toucans, and howler monkeys greeting you on the porch or a herd of wild pigs waking you up in the morning as they travel right by the house? How about a six foot snake slithering right by you on one of the trails or the adrenaline rush of being surprised by a Tayra that lives behind the house? We could go on...

This is Costa Rica at its best. You have the luxury of a well built home with kitchen, grill, and sweeping views of the river/ jungle perched high on a hill combined with a local guide who can set up tours for no cost including boat rides, fishing, trips to a secluded beach, etc (only pay for the boat gas).

There are other tours not included such as snorkeling/ scuba at Cano, trip to Corcovado, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, etc. Mark will assist you with everything.

Friends, we are already picking out dates for next year. We hope to make this annual.

“Amazing! You have to go there once in your life”

We booked the casa for 6 nights in early July. My wife and I travelled with 3 kids (8,9 and 13). I'de like to first note that it is not an ordinary home rental. It is an extraordinary adventure. The home is off the grid, somewhere in the jungle, on the Sierpe River, about two third of the way from Sierpe to the Ocean. Access is by boat from Sierpe. The staff have taken care of us from our arrival in Sierpe. We have been transported with our gears and food to the casa, a wonderful 45 minutes boat ride on the wild river. At the dock, Ruben and Adriana and other staff welcomed us and have carried all our luggage up the hill to the casa. They then unpacked our grocery and took care of our gears. Ruben and Adriana leave about 250 meters from the casa. She came every morning to clean the house, including the breakfast dishes. And then she came back during the evening to clean the diner's dishes and take care of the beds. Every night we were planning our next day of adventure with Ruben and decided on the time to meet in the morning. We went fishing three times on the river and in the mangrove and catch enough fishes to have a copious diner each time. The fishing adventure is wonderful. You first go into the mangrove and catch small crabs in the trees. This is the bait! So much fun with the kids. We also went to visit a secluded man who grow a wide variety of fruit on an island and came back with enough fruits for the week! We went twice to the beach at the end of the river: a splendid remote beach. For a little extra, we also went horseback riding in the jungle, including a short swim in a wonderful cascade. We went hiking in the jungle, during the day and during the night. The night walk was fun, and we saw lots of things... During the day we say many animals, including coatis and a group of monkeys. Directly from the amazing patio of the casa, we saw toucans every day, and several other birds. We also used the two double kayaks to visit the mangrove. Thank you so much for this wonderful week. And a special thanks to Ruben, Adriana and their daughter who made us feel home in this remote jungle. Definitely a place to go if you are planning a trip to Costa Rica. A genuine backcountry adventure in the jungle, with the luxury of a five stars hotel!

“The Perfect Honeymoon Spot!”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I spent 4 days of our honeymoon at Casa Rio Sierpe and absolutely loved it! The house was beautiful, clean, private, and had spectacular views. The owner (Mark) answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly and makes the transition from town to the house seamless. While planning our trip, we were nervous to leave our rental car for a few days in town, but the garage turned out to be well protected and we did not experience any issues. During our stay, Rubin (staff member) took us fishing on the river and to a secluded beach on the Pacific (muy romantico!). Also, we saw a howler monkey feeding and scarlet macaws right from the porch! This isn't just a house rental, it is the Costa Rica experience at it's best!

“Hidden Rainforest Luxury”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From the moment that my wife and I landed in Palmar Sur until it was time to go, Mark and his crew took care of everything. We were immediately greeted by a friendly taxi driver waiting for us that helped get our groceries, then delivered us to the boat for transport to the amazing Casa Rio Sierpe. Ruben and his wife were 5 star themselves greeting us with cold lemonade. Ruben went with us on hiking adventures to the waterfall and then hours of fishing the mangroves and Sierpe river whenever we wanted. As for the home...WOW! When we weren't fishing or hiking, we didn't move from the wonderful patio. The majestic sounds of nature and afternoon rain surrounded us as we grilled up our fresh catch. Ruben's wife kept the beautiful home immaculate along with our laundry! When traveling to Costa Rica we would definately recommend getting away from the tourists and seeking out the luxurious Casa Rio Sierpe and the team that make it truly an unforgettable experience in the rainforest.
