Casa Bambu is a unique “Swiss Family Robinson” house located right on secluded Pan Dulce beach, where the rainforest meets the sea. (More often than not you won’t see one set of footprints on this gorgeous beach!) The view looks out on the magnificent Golfo Dulce, the Punto Banco mountains and Volcan Baru, a dormant volcano in Panama. There couldn't be a more glorious place for a Costa Rica vacation beach getaway than Casa Bambu or our other bamboo houses.

From your porch watch scarlet macaw fly by and monkeys swing past in the trees. Without leaving the vicinity of your yard, enjoy spectacular ocean sunrises, a pristine, secluded beach and shore fishing. Or venture out to marvelous waterfalls, deep-sea waters, rainforest trails and more breathtaking scenery and unspoiled sand and surf.

Casa Bambu is surrounded by a tropical paradise of fragrant, flowering plants like ginger, halyconia, and hibiscus; and fruit trees, with delicious succulent mango, lime, breadfruit, pineapple, papaya and banana there for the picking (depending on the season).

Casa Bambu and our other houses are comfortable rainforest retreats that allow you truly get away from it all and have a REAL vacation.

Casa Bambu has:

  • Large, fully-equipped kitchen with solar refrigerator, blender, coffee maker; pure artesian well water; stove/oven; and hardwood shelves, counters and island;
  • Two spacious living areas/porches with ocean views;
  • Large dining area with handcrafted hardwood table and chairs for spacious dining;
  • Three to four bedrooms (sleeps 6-8);
  • Hand-crafted, queen sized, four-poster beds with excellent mattresses (plus extra beds), custom fitted netting, bed fans and reading lights;
  • Full bathroom with hot water shower plus half bath. (Our other houses have two full bathrooms with showers);
  • Outdoor shower;
  • Ceiling fans;
  • Wifi in house, can be very slow at times except before 7:30 am when streaming video speeds are usual;(the government of Costa Rica has a monopolistic strangle hold on internet service. They are the only provider in our area and have over sold its capacity; hence the slow speeds during the day.)
  • 3G phone signal. This can provide a more reliable internet connection during the day as well as a cheaper alternative to US based roaming plans for local and long distance calls. An inexpensive prepaid chip for your phone (If it's unlocked) can be purchased at the grocery store or at the ICE office in Puerto Jimenez, or in San Jose.
  • 110-volt outlets for charging electronics, etc. (no adaptors needed);
  • Comfortable furniture;
  • Hardwood floors;
  • Linens and bath towels;
  • Daily housekeeping if requested;
  • On site caretaker / manager and staff;
  • 24 hour/ 7-day a week manned reception area
  • Cooking services available;
  • Guided tours of area and Corcovado Park available;
  • Laundry service available;
  • Safe (laptop size)for valuables;
  • Alarm system
  • Outdoor gas barbecue;
  • Hammocks;
  • Boogie boards;
  • Kayaks with life preservers;
  • Beach chairs (no beach towels);
  • Landscaped yard with flowers, tropical fruit trees and lawns sweeping to the beach out front;
  • Delicious artesian well water;
  • Ocean view.

Please note:

Our houses are open, with only half walls (which can be shuttered) and no screens (although all beds are custom netted). All in all, they are very much a part of their natural surroundings. Nature lovers adore them, but if you are not comfortable with the great outdoors, this is not the vacation for you!
