Casa Nirvanita is the main home of Nirvanita de Osa, our family's little Biological Jewel for the last 33 years, located at the beach in the last cove to the SW of Drake Bay, in the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica. (See our reviews at VRBO)

De ruimte
The house which is about 410 M2; was designed by us and our architect to provide a simple, ample, open, luxurious shelter, that blends with the beautiful surroundings, and works well with the ocean, surrounding trees, and streams to stay cool and comfortable.
The house has in the first floor the kitchen, living ,dinnings rooms and a full bathroom. in the second floor you will find the 3 bedrooms with one king and 2 queen beds and private full bathrooms and has very beautiful ocean or forest views from every room and bathroom. (We have 2 large cots that can accomodate 2 more guests)
It has been powered by a combination of Micro-Hydro and Solar for many years, but it was recently connected to the grid for back-up and energy storage.
Our house is open, with only half walls (which can be shuttered) and no screens (although all the beds have quality net canopies which we rarely have to use). All in all, our house is very much a part of the natural surroundings.
Nature lovers love our house, but if you are not comfortable with the great outdoors, this is probably not the vacation spot for you.
It is a place to disconnect, (There is cel phone and 3g internet but it is
available 80-90% of the time and sometimes slooow),
Casa Nirvanita is a place to practice or train in some serious Hammockology, relax, unwind, and enjoy the peace, natural beauty, and serenity
(YOU CAN READ SOME GUEST REVIEWS ON THE VRBO WEBSITE)
WE ALSO HAVE 2 KAYAKS, 1 SINGLE AND 1 DOUBLE, AND A STAND UP PADDLE BOARD AVAILABLE FOR OUR GUESTS)

Toegang voor gasten
We rent the whole house which is in a large chain link fenced area about 70 Mts from the nicest swiming beach in Drake Bay.
There is a smaller independnt house close to it where we stay, and about 40 mts away outside the fence is our caretakers house

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
The Osa Peninsula has been called by some botanists the 'Galapagos of Mesoamerica' due to its great diversity in plant and animal species. The Osa most probably has many more secrets to reveal about its flora and fauna, since only about 75% of the species believed to exist here have been recorded.

With its unique climate, unlike that of any other area for hundreds of miles in any direction, The Osa harbors up to 500 different species of trees of which at least 4 species only exist in the Osa peninsula making it very important to keep the forest intact.

The Osa Peninsula has the single largest expanse of a lowland tropical rainforest in the Pacific coast of Central America and is reputed to have one of the tallest tropical rain forests in the world.

The Osa Peninsula is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. The home of over, 375 species of birds (including several endemic species), It has the largest population of Scarlet Macaws in Central America, 117 species of reptiles, and over 10,000 species of insects.

Flocks of macaws, toucans, parrots, monkeys of four different types, coatis, kinkajous, agoutis, and sloths can be seen often.

Peccaries, and from time to time even jungle cats (like pumas, jaguarundis, ocelots and very rarely jaguars) can be spotted by the careful observer.

Drake Bay

Drake Bay (Bahia Drake) lies on the northern end of the Osa Peninsula in the Puntarenas province. Probably one of the most well known destinations in the region, the tiny town of Agujitas in the bay was actually one of the most in-accessible places in the entire country for many years but that has changed recently.

There is a small airport in the bay with several daily flights from San Jose, and Puerto Jimenez.

Several daily public boats now make the beautiful 90 minute trip from Sierpe in the morning about 11 Am, and 1 about 3PM.

The road access from the Golfo Dulce is long but beautiful, and passable year around.

You can take a day trip to Drake Bay, but at least 2-7 days are recommended.

After being 'discovered' by Sir Francis Drake in 1579 during his circumnavigation of the globe, Drake Bay has now become the gateway to Isla del Caño island and Corcovado National Park.

There are plenty of outdoor activities in the area including ocean kayaking, river canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and zip lines. Bird watching and photography are also very popular around the bay and beaches. Caño island offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in all of Costa Rica.

Drake Bay, Costa Rica

Nirvanita de Osa is probably the most beautiful and most private beachfront property in Drake Bay.
Drake Bay (Bahia Drake) lies on the northern end of the Osa Peninsula in the Puntarenas province. Probably one of the most well known destinations in the region, the tiny town of Agujitas in the bay was actually one of the most in-accessible places in the entire country for many years but that has changed recently.

There is a small airport in the bay with several daily flights from San Jose, and Puerto Jimenez.

Several daily public boats now make the beautiful 90 minute trip from Sierpe in the morning about 11 Am, and 1 about 3PM.

The road access from the Golfo Dulce is long but beautiful, and passable year around.

You can take a day trip to Drake Bay, but at least 2-7 days are recommended.

After being 'discovered' by Sir Francis Drake in 1579 during his circumnavigation of the globe, Drake Bay has now become the gateway to Isla del Caño island and Corcovado National Park.
There are plenty of outdoor activities in the area including ocean kayaking, river canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and zip lines. Bird watching and photography are also very popular around the bay and beaches. Caño island offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in all of Costa Rica.
We are also across the bay from Marino Ballena National Park which is named after the Humpback Whales that migrate here each year to mate and calve their young in the warm waters, before returning to frigid waters to the north or south. This species of Whale is called a Humpback for the way they arch their backs on the surface before diving down.

Whales from the southern hemisphere are here from August to October, and whales from the northern hemisphere come later and remain longer from December to April.

The song of the Humpback Whale is a very unique phenomenon in nature. The male emits a melody of series of unique sounds that resemble musical instruments. The male may sing for close to 15 minutes, and when his song is complete, he usually repeats the song almost exactly the same for sometimes up to an hour. These marvelous songs will travel through the ocean for up to several kilometers, so this fascinating behavior may be heard while swimming, snorkeling, or diving in around Marino Ballena National Park, Corcovado National Park, and Drake Bay.
During this two separate Costa Rica Whale watching seasons each year, you may see and interact with some of the various beautiful Whales and Dolphins that migrate to the warm waters around Drake Bay to calve their young. Many of the Humpback whales in the world are conceived or are born in the waters of the Osa Peninsula.
Whale sightings are common in the waters of the Osa Region to Puerto Jimenez in the southern part of the peninsula. The peak Whale observation months are January thru April, followed closely by July thru October. Nutrient rich and warm Osa Peninsula waters also draw Sperm whales, Pilot whales, Bryde whales, Killer whales, and False killer whales.
Large Dolphin schools with many species can be seen at play in the waters of the park, Drake Bay, the Golfo Dulce, and the near by continental shelf.
We are also connected by forest and ocean to the Corcovado National Park.

FORBES MAGAZINE HAS NAMED CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK AS ONE OF THE 'TOP 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PARKS IN THE WORLD'
The 41,000 hectare Corcovado National Park is known as the crown jewel of the Costa Rican national parks system. It protects 13 major eco-system habitats including a montane forest, which covers mo than half the park, a cloud forest, located in the highest region, richly populated by oak trees and tree ferns, swamp forests, flooded practically all year round, a yolillo forest, predominated by palms, a mangrove swamp, located on the estuaries of the Corcovado, Llorona, and Sirena Rivers, and a freshwater herbaceous swamp. The park lands are home to some 500 species of trees, an amount equivalent to a quarter of all the tree species in Costa Rica. Corcovado National Park contains approximately 140 species of mammals, an estimated 375 species of birds, 117 amphibian and reptile species, 40 types of freshwater fish, and it is estimated that there are some 6,000 types of insects. All four Costa Rican monkey species can be seen within the park, including the endangered squirrel monkey, white faced capuchin, mantled howler, and spider monkey. Other mammals include two and three-toed sloth, northern tamandua, the silky anteater, agoutis, tayras, and coatimundi. There is a large variety of bird species with trogons, tiger herons, guans, hawks, tanagers, parrots, toucans and two distinct macaw species. All four of the sea turtle species that nest in Costa Rica visit the beaches of Corcovado as well. Over 40 species of frogs including red-eyed tree, rain, glass, dink, and poison dart varieties, dozens of snakes including a variety of boas and the bushmaster, 28 species of lizards, and more than 100 species of butterflies call the Osa Peninsula home.

By the way: We are also looking for possible partners, financing, or investors to carefully develop the property in case you might be interested.)
