We arrived for a two week stay at Casa Roja in mid March to a lovely, comfortable house. The views from the roof terrace are amazing, along with the wildlife and birds. We got plenty of exercise walking the lanes and in the biggest pool we've ever come across with a house rental! The place is surrounded by rainforest, very natural and serene.
We have previously stayed in Casa Madera and Casa Amarillo, which are both very different houses, but just as good. You need a car to go to the beach, not a problem, as we prefer the higher elevation for the cooler breezes! Freddy and Enrique (Caretakers) and their families are the best you will meet in Costa Rica!

About the neighbourhood
For surfers, the surf can be up at any time of the year although the rainy season - August to December - is usually best. Kite-surfing is at its best between December and April. The nearest beach, Pilon, has a great break - usually quiet - and the famous world-class Pavones break is a 20 minute drive away. You can see the lines on the water from Finca Estrella.<BR><BR>To boost your spirit and fitness level, yoga classes in Pavones- 20 minutes away - run all year round. Turtles nest on the local beaches, hike past the giant bamboos to our waterfall, take a cooling swim in the refreshing Cuervito river, a lazy boat trip down the Rio Coto from Zancudo or dolphin and whale spotting as you zip across to the Osa Peninsula, to where Corcovado National Park is located, is unforget... more
