Very unhappy guest. Driveway is not marked as they claim. No electricity-solar only. Not secluded, the main house is nearby, and another guest house is about 20 feet away and many other homes are within a close proximity. The compost pile is about 10 feet away from the Casa Titi so it smells of garbage. The only internet is at the main house in their living room. We saw cockroaches in the cabin and a line of huge ants. That was enough for the six hours we were there. We are still waiting on a refund. I am sure Jim and Trish will respond to this but are not responding to our refund emails. On a side note the beach is very rocky and not good swimming
I had the privilege of staying at Ola Mar a few nights... and wish I could have stayed longer! It's the perfect rustic yet comfortable spot walking distance to the ocean's edge! It has all the amenities you need -- and is also set in the most beautiful natural surroundings with well-kept flowers, trees and Costa's amazing birds and monkeys. The community is absolutely lovely with the local meeting spot (restaurant, etc) just a short walk away. There's even a yoga studio with classes at the home next door. Connect with friendly locals or walk solo to your heart's desire -- surf, relax and be happy! This is the place to do it.

Actually, we didn't make to the location for all kind of reasons. But Jim worked a solution for us and made so easy for a solution. I highly recommend Jim's place for the Osa experience.

It's was great to meet the owners, everything was just as described.
I have never experienced the sights and sounds of a jungle.. Noisy but so peaceful. We spent a day hiking up the creek/river searching for waterfalls and although they weren't huge we definitely found what we were looking for.
A drive into town for food was easy and pleasant, the locals are helpful and friendly.
Yes I would highly recommend this for your peaceful getaway.
Thank you for Two great nights in the beautiful landscape of Costa Rica
Great place in perfect location for access to Cabo Matapalo and Corcovado natl park. Beautiful property run by two amazing people, Jim and Trisha! Make for a great stay and more!
I stayed at Cabinas Ola Mar in February and was well situated to take advantage of the local sights and amazing beaches.
The property itself is beautiful and peaceful. Flowers, fruit trees, coconuts! I loved chilling out in the hammock watching the monkeys jump from tree to tree, the grass cutter ants wind their trails and macaws fly overhead.
I particularly enjoyed having our own private kitchen to supplement our travel budget and enjoy our own home cooked meals in a relatively remote area.
Gorgeous place, warm owners, home in paradise. Yep!
I had such a Beautiful stay at Cabinas Ola Mar, and can not wait to return! Such care that has been put into this place, and their guests! So much wildlife right out the door of the Cabana I stayed in, easy stroll to the beach, or to the local restaurant/ bar, where locals and tourist gather nightly to mingle, and share stories of their adventures in this Paradise! Highly recommend this place! You will not regret staying here!!!
