Make sure you read Jim/..his partner’s web site and add a pinch if salt (not just a grain). That’s where you get driving directions-the map on Air B&B only gets you to the general vicinity. It is not on the water, it’s about 200 yards to the beach, but there’s a nice gravel trail to get you there. Be aware that the howler monkeys are VERY loud and they like to scream in the middle of the night. Take ear plugs! Even though it looks pretty enclosed by screening, the connection between the eves and walls wasn’t completed, so that’s entirely open. Place needs a good old fashioned scrub and fixture and toilet seat replacements. The deck is nice. The wifi is VERY sketchy, i. e., don’t count on it. Full kitchen isn’t really accurate-only 2 chipped mugs, pans need replacing and only a small collection of utensils. The oven is really old and rusted but the propane stove works fine (needs a lighter). I’ve paid lots less for much more well appointed cottages-so this one isn’t a good value. We could cook but it took a lot of effort.

Shanti Wasi is a great place for a vacation. We loved how close it was to the water but also amidst the jungle. Casa Titi served us well with all necessities. The mosquito net was helpful to keep little bugs of during the night. Trish and Jim were very kinds and friendly. They answered many questions and opened their home for us. We loved the shows the monkeys put on for us right there.

We stayed here over Christmas with our 3 children. The location is great with just a few steps to the beach. Tons of wildlife, great surf opportunities and best of all: Rachel and Rooster were absolutely outstanding hosts. They taught us all so most and we loved spending time with them. Can't wait to go back!!!

Shanti Wasi is a sweet little house located in a laid-back neighborhood, steps from beautiful beachs and a fun cafe'. The wild life abounds and Jim and Trish are cool longtime locals. We loved it there!

This is our second time staying in this cabina and it is second to none! One of the best values in the area, and the hosts Jim and Trish are very accomodating. They have deep knowledge of the area, and have been such great guests. The cabina is perfectly located next to a short path to a private beach. The kitchen is fully equipped so bring food to cook. The grounds are immaculate and monkeys are seen daily. Be sure if you are staying on a Friday, to go to the restaurant next door called Martinas for their marketplace which is only on Fridays. Thanks Jim and Trish, we'll see you soon! Paul and Lucian

Cute, spacious cabin minutes walk from a rocky beach and 15 min walk at low tide to gorgeous sandy beach. Minutes walk to fresh water pools on from a river right on the beach - gorgeous and so refreshing! Walk up the road 300m to the river and walk up the river a way to waterfall pool. Also great! Jim and Trish were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Beautiful garden around the cabin, very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Definitely recommended! Only cons are bugs and ants that it's hard to keep out of the cabin.

Jim & Trish sind ganz wundervolle Vermieter, die sich eine zauberhafte Oase im Dschungel erschaffen haben. Nur wenige Meter zum Strand (durch einen verwunschenen Hibiskusblütentunnel) & 100m zu Martina's Bar (v.a. Freitag Abends ein Erlebnis), mit einem herrlichen Garten & ausreichend Schatten um die Hitze zu ertragen sowie einer kühlen Flußmündung mit liebevoll angelegten Pools, ist Ola Mar ein unglaublich toller Ort. Casa Titi ist ein wenig dunkel aber der offene Lebensraum im Haupthaus (mit Hängematten, Schaukelstühlen, Büchern, interessanten Menschen & wenn man Glück hat bekommt man noch einen unglaublich leckeren Smoothie) ist dafür hell & freundlich & man fühlt sich dort allzeit willkommen. Trish war für uns einkaufen, hat ihr Hab & Gut, ihr Lachen, ihre Energie & Spiritualität mit uns geteilt & unsere Kinder (3 & 1 Jahre) waren immer willkommen. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!

Cabinas Ola Mar was exactly what we wanted, a rustic piece of paradise far from the worries of modern life. The cabina was perfect for our family of three, including our 8 year-old daughter who loved the secluded beach right out front and the monkeys jumping tree to tree. The owners were very nice and helpful!

The accommodation is beautiful, the property is large and well-maintained, and Jim and Trisha are excellent warm and friendly hosts. You'll have everything you need in this beautiful spot. The beach is a 2 minute walk away along a hibiscus-lined path, and you can walk along the black-sand beach picking your way from cove to cove. The beaches are pretty rocky, so best to bring some water shoes if you have tender tootsies. The surf is great in the area, both for beginners and advanced surfers. There's a restaurant and bar a 4-minute walk away which is fun to hang out at; other than that there's not much in terms of prepared food or amenities (the closest grocery store is in Puerto Jimenez) so either bring a car to get around or just plan to have a quiet retreat in the beautiful jungles of Costa Rica. This is a very special area, and relatively "off the beaten path" as far as tourism goes - it's a GEM!

About the neighbourhood
Nature-lovers' dream! Perfect for couples, small families, surfers, fishermen, birders, hikers...and anyone looking for a secluded retreat in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings. ...Costa Rica's secret! We are an off-the-grid property in the heart of the Osa peninsula, surrounded by pristine, solitary beaches and lush jungle. Wake up to the sounds of monkeys, macaws, and tumbling surf just outside your door. Just steps to a secluded beach with excellent surf. Walk to a nearby waterfall and world-class surf spots, and an internationally acclaimed restaurant and bar.
Getting around
some of our guests choose to have a vehicle durig thier stay so they can go where and when they desire - and we have secure on site parking for all of our guests. that being said, a vehicle is definitely not a necessity. Many of the area’s beaches, rivers, birdwatching, surf spots, etc. are within walking distance. In addition, there is a twice daily “collectivo “ taxi that travels between Puerto Jimenez and Corcovado National Park on the main road that passes about 150 meters away from our property. Hitchhiking is also a commonly accepted practice in this area and finally there are private taxis that operate out of Puerto Jimenez that are available, although relatively expensive (about $40) between Shanti Wasi and Puerto Jimenez
