THE LOCATION

Osa Mountain Village Resort (OMV) is one of those rare very special places on the planet. With spectacular panoramic ocean views, and located on 750+ acres deep in the jungle forest mountains above the beach on the 'neck' of the Osa Peninsula, OMV is the ideal spot for either that get-away-from-it-all vacation or as homebase for great adventure. Enjoy a myriad of on-site activities from the relaxing and sanguine to the adventurous and exhilarating. As one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet, the resort’s proximity to the Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula provides endless opportunities for new experiences. Wake every morning to the primeval sound of resident howler monkeys and marvel at the more than 200 species of tropical birds that populate the forest.

It is a bit of a challenge to get up the hill from the Costenara (the costal highway) to OMV Resort. Currently, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is suggested to make the climb (advisable for all driving in Costa Rica!), or you can call ahead to arrange for an inexpensive shuttle ride up to the community, leaving your vehicle at the OMV office on the highway.

THE OMV RESORT COMMUNITY

Based on a concept of sustainability, the resort features edible plantings, gardens, and farming that provides nearly 80% of all food resources required for bountiful living. The community center, restaurant, and bar have supplemental solar power.

CLIMATE

At 2000 feet above sea level, Osa Mountain Village Resort is above the sweltering heat and humidity on the coast. Its location provides the perfect balance for warm tropical comfort and healing from whatever ails you. Daytime temperatures typically run in the middle 80s (upper 20°s Celsius), with nighttime temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s (low 20°s Celsius).

Humidity can be quite high at times (it is a rainforest!), which is why it so nice that our villa is outfitted with both an adjustable roof vent and a dehumidifier complete with plumbing. And, remember, you can always take a dip in the refreshing community swimming pool, only steps away.

OUR VILLA

Our three bedroom villa is brand new, completely outfitted with all modern conveniences, and ready to rent! When you step through the front door, the open floor plan with high vaulted ceilings is a welcome surprise.

Villa Features include:

• Tiled floors throughout

• Granite countertops

• Gas range and stove

• Under-counter lighting

• UPS back-up lighting and power (limited)

• Dehumidifier

• Adjustable roof vent

• Variable speed fans in every room - even on the exterior deck

• Covered exterior deck that looks out toward the jungle mountain

OTHER VILLAS

If you don't need as much space as our three-bedroom villa provides, you can also rent a one or two bedroom villa through us in the OMV community – and at a discount from the usual OMV Resort rates. But, you must reserve through us to obtain this discount.

SUSTAINABLE GARDENS & FARM

All rentals include a share of fruits, vegetables, eggs, and meat from the OMV sustainable gardens and farm, which is typically distributed twice per week. It is your responsibility to learn the current days and method of food distribution upon your arrival to take advantage of this unique resort benefit.

AVAILABLE ON-SITE ACTIVITIES & ADVENTURES

Purchase separately on-site, or ask us and we will put a discount package together for you!

• OSA ANIMAL SANCTUARY – A real treat for the whole family! Get up close and personal will many of God’s amazing jungle creatures from squirrel monkeys to scarlet macaws, and coatimundi to deer. This is an active sanctuary that retrieves injured and sick animals, rehabilitates them, and then releases them back into the jungle forest.

• BUTTERFLY & HUMMINGBIRD PARADISE – An unique and beautiful experience the whole family will enjoy. It is best to tour in the morning as the sun reaches the enclosure when the butterflies are most active.

• JUNGLE WATER SLIDE – Enjoy an afternoon of wet and wild rides on the 3rd longest waterslide in the world.

• CANOPY TOUR ZIP LINE – For the truly adventurous! 9 cables, 11 platforms, 2 repelling stations, 1 suspension bridge, and an amazing 'tarzan' swing.

• SUPERMAN RIDE – Fly like Superman at speeds approaching 140 km per hour above and through the jungle canopy on the longest cable ride in the world at over 2.07 km.

FLY-N-BUY & PURCHASE REBATES

Many who come for a visit to OMV end up wanting to own a piece of this paradise! For those of you who do, you will receive a Fly-n-Buy rebate on your purchase from the community for a single and for a couple. In addition to this, we will rebate back to you either half the cost of your initial rental or 1% of the purchase price of your fractional share, villa, condominium, or lot – whichever is greater! Rebates are paid at the time of the final payment for your purchase.

Beautiful house, with great access to adventure

  • 4 of 5
The house is beautiful , and near adventure facilities such as ziplines, a superman ride , and the "world's longest waterslide." The community has a nice restaurant and swimming pool, and free access to vegetable grown at the local organic farm. See the butterfly house and wildlife sanctuary, both within walking distance.

Some drawbacks: At the top of a steep dirt road, 4x recommended. 20 minutes down to the main road. Bring lots of cash, because the restaurant and attractions do not accept credit cards. The community is growing, so they have sales phone calls to sell houses, but no sales efforts while we were there. Streets are dirt and walkways not accessible.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in our villa! Yes, the road is steep, but wide and improving – and well worth the journey. Soon there will be regular shuttle service up to OMV. The restaurant and bar now accept credit/debit, and if you purchase the adventure attractions at the OMV office on the highway you can also pay via credit/debit. If purchased on-site, you’re right, cash is the way to go – US dollars or Colones.

Location

From the Owner

In 2011 we initially purchased a 4-week fractional share of a one-bedroom villa at Osa Mountain Village. But, after visiting the area and the developing resort community, we loved it so much that we decided to build our beautiful three-bedroom villa right in the heart of the resort community. The concept of Osa Mountain Village as a sustainable resort is unique and precedent setting. The surroundings are magnificent, the on-site activities varied and plentiful, and the diversity of wonderful people is invigorating. We use the villa for family vacations and as a retirement investment. And, we welcome you to enjoy it as well. Come! Stay for a week... or a lifetime!
