vacation rental description

Experience eco-jungle living in style at Casa Arenosa. This private, ocean-front home was created with all the love of Matapalo. It is located on the secluded beach of Backwash (best swimming beach in the area) Bay on an acre and a half of lushly landscaped gardens.

The Osa Peninsula is paradise for nature lovers who thrive on adventure. It is as pristine and off the beaten-road as it gets! There are no big hotels, or discos on the beach. It’s raw, beautiful and brimming with life. National Geographic calls it the most bio-diverse place on the planet!

Wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys, take a swim in the ocean, then stroll along a secluded beach and watch Scarlet McCaws soar overhead. Afterwards, take a dip in the refreshing plunge pool and relax in a hammock while watching four different kinds of endangered monkeys play in the bamboo gardens off the deck. At night, sleep in a comfy bed under a mosquito net canopy while being lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sound of the waves.

This is the life...Pura Vida.

Casa Arenosa is a fully functioning home off the grid. It is entirely powered by solar energy and has a rainwater catchment system as well as fresh spring water. Here, you can experience off the grid living in jungle luxury. Casa Arenosa is a two-story, open-air home, with a plunge pool and plenty of decks and areas to relax and lounge. It has with three bedrooms, two bathrooms with indoor/outdoor showers, a separate kitchen palapa and a dining room palapa all connected with an open thatch-roof breezeway.

Our wonderful caretakers, Mike and Cecily (who is a yoga instructor and massage therapist), are English speaking and live on site.

traveler reviews for this playa zancudo house rental

Casa Arenosa, amazing tropical escape

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: April 14, 2014

We stayed at Casa Arenosa in April and had an amazing time! The house is so beautiful. We enjoyed the large open kitchen for cooking meals, making smoothies and hanging out in. There are so many seating areas throughout the house, including hammocks, so it’s easy to find a place to relax or socialize. There is also a plunge pool, which was perfect for cooling off during the heat. The beach is just a few steps from the house through some almond tress. The water was beautiful and we saw so many scarlet macaws in the trees! It was great to come out and watch the sunrise at the beach as well. Mornings were also good for seeing all the wildlife that’s around. There were toucans, and tons of monkeys in the trees just outside the house! The caretaker Mike is great. He even made us a delicious dinner one night with fresh fish he had caught himself that day. The sheets and towels were changed every few days, which was very nice as well. The place is perfect for anyone looking for an incredible tropical escape, whether it’s just a couple or a large group of friends. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This house made our vacation so worth it. It was PERFECT! The best beach you can imagine right at your door step, and the best plunge pool at your house. Went with family. So much wildlife right outside your door. The caretakers are SO nice and helpful!

Trip of a lifetime

Review submitted: September 4, 2012   Date of arrival: June 9, 2012

We stayed at Casa Arenosa for two weeks and could have easily stayed for another 2!! The house is open and airy and perfect for the climate and setting. The bedrooms and beds are comfortable and slept our family perfectly, there is plenty of space for gathering and places to retreat for some alone time. There is a yard for the kids to play, a cold plunge perfect for taking a quick dip to cool off. The kitchen allows for plenty of people to help prepare meals and sit together, it was a great place for our entire family to Bond.

The best part is, the local people are amazing and welcoming and the beach is right there, it doesn't get much better than this. The location of Casa Arenosa is hard to beat, it is truly what a Costa Rican vacation should be like, you will not be disappointed! Can't wait to go back!!
