Aire Libre is the last house on a dead-end road about 1km past the center of the small village of Dos Brazos. With an open house design without full walls, one doesn't need to even leave the house to experience the jungle. Surrounded by tree tops full of birds, there is a never ending chorus of bird and insect sounds to enjoy. And at night, the bug nets over each of the three beds were more than sufficient to keep the more than 35,000 species of insects away.
With an attention to detail that one would expect renting a house at higher price range, Tristan is the property manager that knows how to deliver. The biodegradable soap near the kitchen and bathroom sinks, clean bath towels with a light scent of lavender, and fresh flowers in the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen were all small things that made a big difference in our stay. Bananas picked from the trees on the property were provided. The house was well maintained and had the feeling that someone truly cares about the property and the guests that stay there. Dishes were plentiful, clean, and organized in the kitchen and a full tour of the house and property was provided in addition to booking us horseback rides with local guide, Gerardo. A great 4 hour ride up the mountain was had. Thanks for everything, Tristan. I wish I were still there.
After one week at Casa Aire Libre, my expectations of rural, house rental lodging have been pushed higher than I thought possible. If you want to be in the jungle, but yet have the convenience of being in a house with comfortable beds, running water, and a full kitchen, then Casa Aire Libre is where you want to be.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Come and enjoy a vacation beach home in a hidden tropical paradise with breathtaking beaches, world-class surfing in a peaceful, idyllic setting. Or stay at one of our riverside jungle houses in walking distance from several alluring waterfalls in the small gold mining village of Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre, located in the forest reserve of the world famous Corcovado National Park with a new park entrance coming at the end of 2014! Osa Rainforest Rentals are located in the Osa Peninsula, southwest Costa Rica where the rainforest meets the sea. It is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. One of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled, it has been dubbed Costa Rica's last wilderness frontier. Rich in wildlife, sparsely populated and until recently very difficult to access by road. Consequently much of the peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. Dominated by Corcovado National Park which protects most of the peninsula, the Osa supports more then fifty percent of the animal and plant species that live in Costa Rica. National Geographic has described the Osa as, "The most biologically intense place on earth". ... more less
