Property Details

Updated: Oct 18, 2014
Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

In one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth, there is a paradise that only God could have imagined. The Pacific Ocean stretches out to the horizon. In the distance, one can see the tip of Panama across the Gulfo Dulce. Behind you are hundreds of acres of primary forest teaming with wildlife. Below are magnificent beaches with some of the best fishing and surfing the world has to offer. It's only a short hike down our path.

Built over 500 feet above the sea, Tres Palmas catches the cooling tropical breezes coming from the Gulfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. The sound of the surf rolling in the distance, scarlet macaws calling to their mates, while howler monkeys cavort overhead, lull you into a sense of harmony with nature.

In the midst of this spectacular setting, a secluded and exotic house has been built in modern Spanish style under a massive artificial palm thatched roof. We used the artificial thatch to give it the look of real palm thach with none of the problems.

The area was once home to the Brunca Indians that settled in southern Costa Rica and the western part of Panama. Pieces of native pottery can be found by those that care to look. The Indians considered this a holy place and many who stay here find a spiritual peace that is quite uplifting.

Our property is home to four types of monkeys, hundreds of bird species including tucans and scarlet macaws, sloth, iguana, anteaters, and a myriad of other animal species. Plant specimens are varied and abundant. This magical place offers the rare opportunity to experience nature at its most spectacular and unspoiled.

About the Owner

I'm an oceanfront restaurant owner living in Cocoa Beach, Florida. I love to fish and surf, so the property in the Matapalo area of Costa Rica made a lot of sense for me and my family.

A Memorable Trip

The trip from Puerto Jimenez (12 miles or a 45 minutes drive) to Tres Palmas was like a fairly tale drive through thick tropical forest and lush vegetation running down from the mountains and touching the ocean to our left. Birds and wildlife were abundant, but there was a noticeable lack of traffic, road signs, power lines and people. Perfect!

Along the way we quartered the Gulfo Dulce and at times came to open cattle pastures with majestic views of tubing waves breaking at point breaks in the distance.

Once we reached the entrance to Tres Palmas the fun really began! The drive up and down the 1 mile road was steep and exciting! The size of the trees towering all around us was incredible and we could hear and see howling monkeys. My immediate thoughts were, “We've found paradise!” But the best was yet to come. The Tres Palmas property overlooks Cabo Matapalo. The vista is downright breathtaking. I've never witnessed a more moving perspective in all of Costa Rica!

The amazing thing about this area is that there are so many amazing things to do and see. Within a walking distance you can experience world class surfing, hiking, wildlife, beach combing, fishing and much more.

The accommodations and food were all 5 star class.

This was my fifth multi-week trip to Costa Rica and hands down because of our visit to Tres Palmas it will be always the most memorable and exciting.

Magical place, magical people

  • 5 of 5
We loved "Tres Palmas"! The wildlife around the property was as good as it gets. The villa offers every configuration of beds/rooms a large group could ask for. The caretakers not only cooked wonderful meals for our group, but they helped us organize some guided hikes and dinners in the neighborhood. Since we were deep in the middle of nowhere, having this kind of help was very useful. We liked the hike through the rainforest down to the beach everyday, and especially enjoyed "pan dulce" beach for its beauty and great community feel. We are still dreaming about our great adventure to this magical place, and planning to come back.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Tres Palmas was definitely unforgettable! My entire family truly enjoyed the home and the surroundings. We had athe pleasure of enjoying meals that were prepared by the onsite cook and they were all fabulous. The pictures that are seen on VRBO are just a glimmer of how wonderful Tres Palmas is. We had great weather the entire time we were there, we enjoyed the pool, the space, and the bird watching. I would absolutely recommend Tres Palmas to everyone who is interested in visiting the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, you would not regret it!!!

Awesome vacation

  • 4 of 5
This was a beautiful and relaxing place, it was everything the info said it was. We lacked hot water in many of our showers, but we lived! (I love hot water, too! ). The caretakers were wonderful, we had them cook our dinners, it was awesome! They were a sweet, cute couple and very helpful! We highly recommend you have them cook for you! The gate was locked upon arrival, the code was not given to us, that was a small issue on day one! Great vacation, wildlife in the property gave us a daily show, very cool!

Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5
Words can not describe how special Tres Palmas actually is. Up on the side of a mountain, with a view of the cape, pacific ocean, and Panama in the distance sits one of the most remarkable homes I have ever seen. With it's circular footprint and open air design I felt like a Mayan king standing on the edge of the house looking out over paradise. The elevation above the water offers a welcome breeze. The walk down to the beach is through the rain forest on a good trail with stairs. Tres Palmas literally sits right in the midst of the jungle with all the monkeys and birds all around you. The sunrise over Panama everyday was amazing. You get the sun in the morning and the welcome shade then extends out over the steps and pool in the afternoon and evening. The surfing and fishing are world class. And after all the sun and saltwater treat yourself to a hike under the canopy up a fresh water stream to a waterfall for a swim. Tres Palmas has it all, luxury, views, and all the action you could possibly need. The staff takes good care of the guests and they make you feel right at home. I would highly recommend Tres Palmas to anyone.

Every year we have a family reunion.We have done cruises, Hawaii,and many Mexico destinations. Tres Palmas was by far the most exotic and memorable.We did all the activities, surfing,swimming with Dolphins,fishing, hiking and zip lining. We also layed by the pool and watched the monkeys in the trees along with a Sloth in a tree 50 feet away. Tres palmas is truely impressive. We had 14 there and still had empty beds. Marvin the resident manager is terrific.Be sure to have he and his wife cook dinner for you.You will be impressed. there are also two 5 star resturants about 15 minutes away and two inexpensive but good resturants also within 15 minutes. Adrain ( Marvins nephew ) works on the property and is an excellent guide and speaks very good english. Be sure and have him take you to the hidden water falls. We like to try different places but Tres Palmas is the one that all my family wants to return to.
