“Best experience and amazing house”
Reviewed February 16, 2020 for a stay in February 2020

I've stayed in Carate before but this was the first time I stayed at a house rather than a hotel/lodge and I'm so glad I did. The property is beautiful and the house was amazing. The pictures don't do it justice. Justin and Evee responded quickly to any questions I had and the house had everything we could need.
Gary was so helpful and was the best guide. He took us to the national park right down the road and he enhanced every aspect of the experience.

“The most unexpected dream house amongst the rainforest and beach!”
Reviewed February 12, 2020 for a stay in February 2020

My partner and I rented Scarlet House for 4 days in Feb 2020 and wished we had booked to have it for longer.
I found the property on Tripadvisor and within a couple of hours of sending an inquiry to the owner Justin – he replied back with answers to all my questions. He also provided a list of must do activities whilst in the Corcovado area and hooked us up with an incredible guide Gary.
Upon arrival to Scarlet House we were greeted by Justin & Gary and given fresh coconut water (straight from the coconut) to drink whilst they walked us around the grounds and went through all of the house’s amenities.
The house is beautifully furnished and comes fully equipped with everything. The kitchen especially has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable and the shower in the en-suite is to die for (it’s like standing in the rain). It had a good wi-fi connection and even had an Alexa!! All your home comforts.
There are hammocks scattered all over the property for when you might want to escape the midday heat and has a surf & boogie board you can take to the beach.
Prior to our arrival we had already booked excursions with Gary who is an absolute asset to Scarlet House. If it wasn’t for Gary – we wouldn’t have enjoyed our stay as much as we did. He has lived in the Carate region all his life and is an extremely knowledge guide, so please make sure you use him. We became good friends with Gary during our stay and had him over for a couple of evenings in too.
Things you must do whilst staying at Scarlet House:
Corcovado Hike
Sunrise kayak
Visiting Tortuga de Osa
Sunset every night on Carate beach

At the property itself you’ll see plenty of wildlife including coati’s, monkeys, birds and lizards – everything you came to Costa Rica to see.
Carate beach - You pretty much have the entire thing to yourself (no exaggeration). It has warm water and great waves to play in.
We had our own car for our trip and it really did come in handy! It meant we were able to do a lot more during our visit. We visited some places that were off the beaten track so it’s best if you have a 4x4 (especially if you’ve never driven on non-paved roads before). The drive from Puerto Jiminez to Scarlet House is so simple - It’s one road!
In a nutshell we had a truly memorable time whilst in Corcovado and it really was because of Scarlet House. We would have no hesitation in returning and we really miss the feeling of seclusion (very different to London UK).
