THE PLACE at THE END of the ROAD
Carefully crafted to exist in harmony with nature, Casa Del Cabo is focused on the outside world with a fully open living space amplifying the natural ocean breeze and eliminating the need for air-conditioners or fans. The house is built to be gentle on the surrounding environment – we want to leave the Osa Peninsula a better place than we found it and we hope our guests will feel the same. The main structure and the floors are built with ironwood, the roof is purple heart, and the outside decks are Ipe wood. These exotic woods are from fallen trees and locally harvested. With an open air house you will hear the sounds of the sea while you sleep. The division between the rainforest and you dissolves, and your senses become finely tuned to the amazing environment around you.
In the garden below the house we have planted hundreds of banana plants, a couple of durian trees, a few guanabana trees, and some other exotic fruit. Besides attracting wildlife, the fruit trees provide you with the option of eating the freshest possible fruit right from the tree. There are also plenty of coconuts and if you ask nicely Walter will open them with a machete.
OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE
One of the last places in the world where primary rainforest grows to the high tide line, the Osa Peninsula is a hauntingly unique environment. This remote, lush and relatively unexplored corner of Costa Rica is home to over 2.5% of the entire world’s animal and plant species. Endangered species like Baird’s tapir, the white- lipped peccary, the Central American squirrel monkey and pot-bellied spider monkey inhabit the forests of the Osa. A place where jaguars still roam the jungles, scarlet macaws and toucans fly freely about and breeding populations of humpback whales swim by it’s shores, the Osa Peninsula holds one of the highest natural diversities on the planet, and has been described as the most biologically intense place on earth (National Geographic).
