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 a large portion of the food resources required for bountiful living. The community center, restaurant, and bar have supplemental solar power.
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 after all 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 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)
• Adjustable roof vent
• Variable speed fans in every room - even on the exterior deck
• Covered exterior deck that looks out toward the jungle mountain
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.

Glenn & Lori Stockton - We own and manage SwingSetMall.com, a growing internet based business that markets playground equipment for the backyard do-it-yourselfer and commercial use by day cares, schools, and park and recreation areas. We have two grown children – Aaron, who works for Amazon.com as a programmer in Seattle, WA, and Lindsey, who operates a growing home with our three wonderful grandchildren. Andrew is married to Lindsey and is a partner in our playground sales business. We are looking forward to increasing our times away from the day-to-day operation of the business and spending more time with our grandkids and exploring the USA and the world!
“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!”
