Casa Rio Sierpe is located on the northern edge of the Osa Peninsula along the banks of the Sierpe River, approximately 35* minutes by boat from the quaint town of Sierpe, which is considered the gate way to Osa. Casa Rio Sierpe is located among 2,500 acres of private reserve and adjoins the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in the Osa Peninsula. This area is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity and dubbed by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on earth”. The house is located in the heart of true primary and secondary rain forest, a plethora of wild life is to be found many of which are endangered or threatened. There are breathtaking post card views from the house and direct ocean access where you will find extremely private, pristine beaches all only 15* min away by boat , we truly have it all! Are you looking to discover the magic of Costa Rica's rain forests, wildlife and pristine beaches? Are you planning your honey moon or looking to rekindle your romance? Are you an avid fisherman? With over 98 line and tackle world records recorded in both fresh and salt water in the immediate area you are sure to have that once in a lifetime fishing trip. Perhaps you’re an active adventure seeker looking for a nonstop, adrenaline filled vacation or you just want to relax on our back deck in the double hammock with a glass of wine or cold cerveza and watch the monotonous grind and stress of modern day life melt away before you. Are you having a hard time satisfying everyone’s needs in a vacation? Perhaps you are looking for a romantic getaway but others want to go fishing, you want to go to the beach, others want to experience the rain forest, why choose only one when you can have it all! A stay at casa Rio Sierpe guarantees to fulfill your wildest vacation dreams and it will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul providing you with a virtual backstage pass to one of the world's most fascinating and diverse destinations. At Casa Rio Sierpe you'll find ultra-private luxury accommodations and full service amenities typically only found in resorts but in the comfort and privacy of a home. Our newly built, 2,200 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line * at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 360 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping! Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 10 min walk away. The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with one attached full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck. The first bedroom features a queen size bed, large armoire and a 180 degree view of the rain forest, the surrounding tropical landscape and river valley below. The second bedroom features a king size bed and private balcony overlooking the valley. The over sized kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer, 6 burner gas stove with oven, reverse osmosis purified water and of course a blender! Also, don’t worry about doing those dishes, you’re on vacation, our staff will take care of those as well! All of this is sure to sooth any culinary indulgence that a guest may have! The living room opens directly onto the 600 ft2, covered back terrace complete with ceiling fans, double hammock, lounge & rocking chairs, Webber BBQ and a large dining room table. This is the perfect spot for your daily relaxation, enjoying breath taking views and meeting many of our local neighbors as well. Almost on any given day expect to see resident Scarlet macaws, parrots, Toucans, Aracaris, noisy parakeets, hummingbirds, squirrels, Howler monkeys, white face Capuchin monkeys, frogs, butterflies and at night Kinkajous. And if you are very fortunate you may even see the endangered Spider monkey, Ant eaters, Tayras, Sloths, Jaguarundi cat, White-lipped peccary pigs and the White nosed coatis. Not only is Casa Rio Sierpe’s location poised for optimal wildlife observation it is also a perfect home base for a variety of activities from land to sea that are sure to keep even the most active vacationer busy. Most of these tours are given at no additional charge to our guest with their paid rental. When you come and visit us, included is a full time guide and housekeeper whose sole job is to make your vacation the most memorable, stress free, work free as possible any way that they can. They will give you private guided tours, carry your grocery bags, take you river fishing, clean the house, find fresh fruit, do your dishes and even get you a fresh coconut to drink at the beach. We have over 10 miles of hiking trails along with several kayaking trails that our resident onsite guide will personally guide you on, day or night, along the way pointing out hard to see wildlife that you would normally miss and introducing you to interesting flora and fauna. If you would like to go on a night tour, no problem, if you want to go to a rain forest waterfall, no problem, how about getting you some wild cilantro from the forest for that fresh Ceviche you’re going to make, they can do that to. Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach? There are many other tours available in the area that are not included in the rental fee as they’re operated by independent tour companies. These operators will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes * The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a short but relatively steep hill at the end. Don’t worry we will transport your luggage and supplies for you. Guest considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be physically fit and better geared towards those who are adventurous & enjoy hiking *Travel times on the river by boat are estimates and will vary slightly depending on the load of the boat (how many guest and how much gear) and how much wildlife we stop to look at along the way!!!

About the neighbourhood
Casa Rio Sierpe is located among 2500 acres of private reserve and adjoins the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in the Osa Peninsula—one of the most beautiful and wild parts of this country and home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. THE OSA PENINSULA Located in the south west of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. It is one of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled - it is only within the last 10 years that it has had road access - and consequently much of the Peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. At least half of the Osa's extensive tracts of rainforest and swamps are protected by Corcovado National Park, and Private Reserves. Its forests are home to endangered species such as Bair...
Getting around
The best way to see the sights while visiting Casa Rio Sierpe is by cruising the river with the included boat and Captain, taking a guided nature hike or exploring the rain forest on horseback!
