Casa Manglar is located in the heart of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula of southern Costa Rica 300 meters from the busy waterfront and 300 meters in the other direction to the town center. It's an easy walk to anywhere in town. It's a large, comfortable home nestled into a private corner of a large garden. It accommodates up to 8 guests in a King Suite, Junior Suite, and a Two Bedroom Suite with the possibility of an adjacent dorm room with 8 single beds. The group dorm is only available when renting the entire house and will be shown as an add on when making a reservation. 

The home has an extraordinary sense of oneness with the environment. The building so smoothly blends into its surroundings that it's sometimes difficult to define if one is actually inside or outside the house. It has AC in all the bedrooms, mosquito netting for all beds, original artwork from Central and South America, a well-equipped kitchen, an indoor and outdoor lounge, hand-painted murals throughout, gardens & sitting areas, an outdoor tropical shower where the monkeys can sometimes be right on top of you, as well as a treetop roof deck for morning coffee or late night star gazing. Tropical experiences don't get much better! 

Common wildlife sightings include Four species of Monkey, Kinkajou, Raccoon, Coatis, Armadillo, Anteater, Sloth, Raptors, Toucans, Scarlet Macaw, Crocodile, Cayman, Lizards, Snakes, Beetles, Hummingbirds, Butterflies, Herons, Iguanas & various other Birds, Insects, Reptiles & Amphibians. Bring a camera & ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!

We recently finalized the purchase of 235 hectares or almost 600 acres of primary rain forest on the Osa Peninsula. We have become carbon neutral, a long time family, and a business goal. Guests can now hike and camp either in town, in the rainforest, or on the beach, so ask us about your options by contacting us or at check-in or better yet, just review the whiteboard at the reception area.

Fun place to view Osa wildlife

My husband and I recently stayed at Casa Manglar. We wanted to stay near wildlife and we were not disappointed! Troops of monkeys passed by the house and howled in the mornings. Parrots flew overhead and scarlet macaws perched in the trees. There was a sloth outside of the main building as well as any other interesting creatures. Andrew was an excellent host, providing us with tour and dining information, and even helping us order take-out food. He provided a fun gathering space for meeting other travelers and made everyone feel welcome.

Laura and Kurt, im very happy to read that you enjoyed your visit to Casa Manglar. Coma back whenever you want to reconnect with nature. In the meantime fun travels. Pura Vida, Andrew

Un lindo lugar en plena naturaleza

Nuestra estadía en casa del Manglar fue un autentico placer. Es un lugar muy curioso, lleno de fauna y flora. Está a 2 minutos caminando del aeropuerto, si recomiendo alquilar un coche si vas a recorrer el area por tu cuenta. La gente en la recepción fue muy amable con sus recomendaciones y siempre estuvo muy atentos a nuestra necesidades.

Me alegro mucho que disfruto su visita a Casa Manglar Andrea.

Great house!

We really enjoyed our stay in this gorgious house nested in the beautiful garden of a small eco resort located in the heart of Puerto Jimenez, near the airport (no need for a car if you come by plane). We were welcomed by Jacqui, 2 proud aras and 1 spider monkey. Wow, amazing! We didn't meet Andrew but he was very responsive through mails. The house is clean and spacious, full of pieces of art. The open living room is a small paradise. Better than on the pictures :-) Kids did appreciate the swimming pool surrounded by majestic palmtrees. The whole place is very peaceful and Jacqui kindly offered us to join the other guests for a typical and tasteful breakfast. Jacqui and Andrew were very kind and helpful with us. Muchas gracias for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful place! Pura vida!

It was all our pleasure Gaelle, Pura Vida, Andrew & Jacqui

Casa Manglar, jungle delight including all the comforts.

There's always some apprehension when booking a place sight unseen. After an easy flight from San Jose to the airport in Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula, we actually walked to Casa Manglar in five minutes or so. Greeted by the on sight manager, Ronny, we were shown to our residence for the next five days. No need for all that apprehension. The four of us had the same reaction. The house was big and beautiful, spacious and completely furnished. Four separate comfortable bedrooms, big kitchen and sitting area, a "widows walk" near the tops of the surrounding trees and more property with paths than I could walk in the whole time of the stay. We gambled on the time of the year for out trip, being in the middle of the rainy season, but were rewarded with sunshine every day and a soothing rain every night while we slept. The ocean was flat for our four hour whaling watch. Just a glimpse of one whale, but that didn't ruin a beautiful time on the water. Ronny was very accommodating and helped with lots of information and arranged for our whale excursion. Even better than that, he supplied us with a bag of bananas and called us when the monkeys were ready to eat. A bunch of white faced monkeys including two with babies on their backs happily ate the many bananas and posed for us for great pictures. All kinds of wildlife including magnificent scarlet macaws were around the house night and day. The casa was within walking distance of a grocery store so there was no reason to go without. There also was a great little souvenir shop just around the corner near the airport that had all kinds of cool things all made by the locals. The office for Sansa Airlines was in the same building and it's where you go to check in for the return flight. Just around the corner were two car rental offices and we rented an SUV for $45 a day and it was a great decision. All of us being senior citizens, it would have been difficult to walk to town to take advantage of shops and restaurants. Our favorite eatery was Restaurante Corcovado which had breakfast, the huevos rancheros was great, lunch and dinner. From great shrimp to langosta and special margaritas. Airbandb did not disappoint and Andrew, our contact, was very accommodating. It's important to know that reservations must be made at the municipality building if you want to visit Corcovado National Park. Thank you Andrew and Ronny. Enjoy your visit.

Our 5 days at Casa Manglar

The minute we set foot in the outside living area of Casa Manglar, we were in awe. Spacious, comfortable and so peaceful. The house itself has everything you need and then some. The indoor/outdoor concept is to die for and allowed the whole family (2 parents and 5 kids 2-11) to enjoy every moment we spent onsite. Did we mention the private pool that comes along with the house ? Well, 5 kids, tropical weather and a pool are a match made in heaven as far as we are concerned. To keep it short, we are FANS ! Loved it ... every second.
