The space

Comfortable and private for two guests, Casa Bambu is located in "Bali Rica", a gated 5 acre tropical garden of fruit trees and exotic plants. The scent of ylang ylang trees perfume the air and the view from your porch is of large Guanacaste trees, exotic flowers, and the jungle faced coastal mountain range. The fruit garden provides a bounty of seasonal bananas, starfruit, coconuts, mango, citrus and more.

The accommodations include an extra comfortable queen bed with a pillow top mattress. The full bathroom and kitchen, and screened porch bring all the comforts of home. There is a security safe for valuables. From the screened-in porch, the mountain and garden views are beautiful with many birds and butterflies making their home, including morphos - the electric blue butterfly. Casa Bambu also has a small private deck for your sun bathing or evening star gazing enjoyment and a refreshing dipping pool to cool off.

Of special note on the premises is "Palm Spa", which offers convenient spa treatments for your pleasure and relaxation.

The garden is ever changing with seasonal fruits and flowers at hand for your enjoyment. There are paths throughout the 5 acre estate which will lead you through exotic flowers, the zen garden, yoga pavilion, the Labyrinth, through bamboo groves to the Spa House, the meditation stream, or wherever you wander. You may hear the call of the area resident rainbow macaws, along with many other bird species.

Seasonally we have on going classes including Tai Chi, Yoga and book club.

Casa Bambu is located 3 minutes from the scenic and paved Costa Rican Pacific coastal highway. No 4wd vehicle is necessary to access this property. This retreat will feel remote, but is convenient to activities the area has to offer. Though we encourage guests to rent a vehicle for more freedom for exploring, the village of Ojochal has much to offer and groceries and restaurants are within walking distance. Also local taxi or tour bus can be arranged for front door pick-ups for your tour needs.

The village of Ojochal is ideal for lovers of gourmet cuisine with a number of the area's finest restaurants. There's also a popular French bakery nearby with delicious fresh, warm-from-the-oven breads, and soon coming a health food store for those looking for special ingredients to cook at home.

Just 5 minutes away is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, Playa Ventanas, and the popular surfer's beach in Dominical, is approximately 30 minutes north. The newly built San Buenas Golf Course is 10 minutes south, and many other local attractions are close by; horseback riding, zip lines, ATV tours, off shore fishing and boating, etc.. For book lovers there is the village library within walking distance, also a waterfall and of course our local soccer field!

For those considering a more permanent situation in Costa Rica, we will be happy to guide you to trustworthy people who can show you available properties in the area.

A perfect retreat, honeymoon hideaway, or for the solitude of one, Casa Bambu is a place which can be a comfortable home base for exploring the riches of Costa Rica, or a private hideaway to rest and revive. .

Sharon is amazing always there if you need her. The property is so beautiful. We saw parrots daily and toucans and many other birds. The cottages are set up so the plant growth offers you seclusion and privacy.

I loved this place and can’t say enough about it. The host Sharon was amazing. She booked and got me a rental car in San Jose while I was away. Can’t thank her enough for that! The cottage was beautiful and secluded but not bar from great restaurants and the beach. I loved the c…

We stayed in several Airbnb homes in the area and Bali Rica is a truly magical place! Be sure to catch a sunrise so you can see and hear the chorus of birds each morning! I’m not a bird-watcher but I instantly turned into one! I was so happy that I brought my grandmother’s old bi…

Originally Mac is from Texas and Sharon is from N.J.. We met on the island of Andros in the Bahamas, and fell in love "underwater" in the blue seas. That was many years ago and we've since traveled the world. Having lived for some years in Bali Indonesia, we were enchanted b…
