À propos de ce logement
Casa Nirvanita is the main home of Nirvanita de Osa, our family's little Biological Jewel for the last 33 years, located at the beach in the last cove to the SW of Drake Bay, in the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica. (See our reviews at (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN))
The house which is about 410 M2; was designed by us and our architect to provide a simple, ample, open, luxurious shelter, that blends with the beautiful surroundings, and works well with the ocean, surrounding trees, and streams to stay cool and comfortable.
The house has in the first floor the kitchen, living ,dinnings rooms and a full bathroom. in the second floor you will find the 3 bedrooms with one king and 2 queen beds and private full bathrooms and has very beautiful ocean or forest views from every room and bathroom. (We have 2 large cots that can accomodate 2 more guests)
It has been powered by a combination of Micro-Hydro and Solar for many years, but it was recently connected to the grid for back-up and energy storage.
Our house is open, with only half walls (which can be shuttered) and no screens (although all the beds have quality net canopies which we rarely have to use). All in all, our house is very much a part of the natural surroundings.
Nature lovers love our house, but if you are not comfortable with the great outdoors, this is probably not the vacation spot for you.
It is a place to disconnect, (There is cel phone and 3g internet but it is
available 80-90% of the time and sometimes slooow),
Casa Nirvanita is a place to practice or train in some serious Hammockology, relax, unwind, and enjoy the peace, natural beauty, and serenity

WE ALSO HAVE 2 KAYAKS, 1 SINGLE AND 1 DOUBLE, AND A STAND UP PADDLE BOARD AVAILABLE FOR OUR GUESTS)

Échanges avec les voyageurs

The Osa Peninsula has been called by some botanists the 'Galapagos of Mesoamerica' due to its great diversity in plant and animal species. The Osa most probably has many more secrets to reveal about its flora and fauna, since only about 75% of the species believed to exist here have been recorded.
With its unique climate, unlike that of any other area for hundreds of miles in any direction, The Osa harbors up to 500 different species of trees of which at least 4 species only exist in the Osa peninsula making it very important to keep the forest intact.
The Osa Peninsula has the single largest expanse of a lowland tropical rainforest in the Pacific coast of Central America and is reputed to have one of the tallest tropical rain forests in the world.
The Osa Peninsula is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. The home of over, 375 species of birds (including several endemic species), It has the largest population of Scarlet Macaws in Central America, 117 species of reptiles, and over 10,000 species of insects.
Flocks of macaws, toucans, parrots, monkeys of four different types, coatis, kinkajous, agoutis, and sloths can be seen often.
Peccaries, and from time to time even jungle cats (like pumas, jaguarundis, ocelots and very rarely jaguars) can be spotted by the careful observer.
Drake Bay (Bahia Drake) lies on the northern end of the Osa Peninsula in the Puntarenas province. Probably one of the most well known destinations in the region, the tiny town of Agujitas in the bay was actually one of the most in-accessible places in the entire country for many years but that has changed recently.
There is a small airport in the bay with several daily flights from San Jose, and Puerto Jimenez.
Several daily public boats now make the beautiful 90 minute trip from Sierpe in the morning about 11 Am, and 1 about 3PM.
The road access from the Golfo Dulce is long but beautiful, and passable year around.
You can take a day trip to Drake Bay, but at least 2-7 days are recommended.
After being 'discovered' by Sir Francis Drake in 1579 during his circumnavigation of the globe, Drake Bay has now become the gateway to Isla del Caño island and Corcovado National Park.
There are plenty of outdoor activities in the area including ocean kayaking, river canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and zip lines. Bird watching and photography are also very popular around the bay and beaches. Caño island offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in all of Costa Rica.
We expect our guests to behave well, Be reasonably quiet after 11:30 PM. and take good care of our home.
