Casa Manglar is a beautiful tropical home with 4 bedrooms each with A/C. It offers both a master and junior suite each with cable TV, walk in closets and private bathrooms. These suites are gems in Puerto Jimenez. Casa Manglar is the old family home of the owners of the resort 'La Chosa del Manglar'. Guests have access to 2 swimming pools on the property. The home is located on the same property as the resort but they are completely invisible from each other. The house is extraordinary in it's sense of oneness with the surrounding environment.

If you require extra beds we have a 8 person suite beside the home which can be rented separately for $120 per night. At Casa Manglar you are GUARANTEED to see WILDLIFE. How certain are we? Well, have you ever sat in your garden and seen Scarlet Macaws, Monkey's or a Kinkajou's? We have! Our guests have told us they saw more wildlife at here than at any other location during their Costa Rica vacation. Come and stay with us, whether for a few days or a couple of weeks. We are only a 5 minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and only 350 meters from one of the nicest beaches here. Gentle waves will lull you on the beautiful chocolate sand beaches, cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) will fly and play throughout the gardens. This is truly a birders paradise. You don't even have to leave the house to see these impressive Macaws and the many other varieties of exotic birds that visit here. Hiking, kayaking, birding, horseback riding, surfing, canopying, snorkeling & camping are all easily practiced from 'Casa Manglar'. Do what you wish, when you wish, walk the beaches or hang-out in the property, it's up to you. Come spend some time with us. Make 'Casa Manglar' your home on the OSA. There is extraordinary animal activity on the property. There really isn't anything we can say with words that can do it justice. so we simply suggest that you visit the Photo Gallery and see for yourselves what 'La Chosa y Casa de Manglar' has to offer. Remember that all photos were taken on the property. Bring your cameras folks!!. How do you want to spend your vacation? Whether your days are action packed or totally peaceful & restful, you will love coming back to your home away from home at 'Casa Manglar'. Why leave monkeys to look for monkeys? They're right here. Do it from the pools. With over four acres of gardens, lush landscaping and natural mangroves to explore you might just want to stay right here for awhile. The magnificent Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) can be seen daily, literally dropping out of the sky for you to get a very up close peek. You will never forget these spectacular creatures, which lodge all over the Osa Peninsula. There are tropical, brightly colored flowers, fruits and plants filling the grounds some of which may eventually end up in your tummy. Butterflies, birds, lizards, flowers, all abound, it's like being in a tropical fairy tale! See you in paradise Pura Vida Familia Gray Ortega

Great Jungle Style Home
My 2 brothers and I returned to Puerto Jimenez after living there over 38 years ago. We were looking for a place that was authentic for the area and comfortable. We definitely found it! We were all very pleased with the great accommodations and extremely helpful and friendly staff. The bedrooms all had air conditioning and the home had a great kitchen, dinning and large common area with an extra special and spacious outdoor covered area with comfortable sofas for a great area for talking, reading and afternoon relaxing. We would all recommend to all are friends and family to spend some very special time at this wonderful home! Thank you for a great stay! Steve, Bob and Bill

Lugar de descanso en medio de la selva
Uno de los mejores sitios donde me he quedado, fascinante desde la llegada,el estacionamiento con hongos gigantes, jardines de manglares y altos arboles. Por la noche escuchar sonidos de fauna moviendose alrededor de la cabaña y despertar con las voces de las guacamayas entre los arboles. Definitivamente volvería ahi.

One of the best stays we have had in Costa Rica
This was my wife's and my fourth visit to Costa Rica and when my brother and sisters found out what we have been up to for our vacations they requested to join us. In our search to find some impressive locations to show our family we came across CASA MANGLAR, seemed perfect and believe me for us it was just that. The booking went off without a hitch, The house was impressive and set-up well, The master bedroom and junior suites were spacious and comfortable, all rooms had air conditioning and beds very comfortable. I started my day at 6:00 am with a cup of fresh brewed Costa Rican coffee on the roof top balcony watching the Capuchin monkeys making their way past the resort, not to mention the birds, put my Nikon to good use. The beach in Puerto Jimenez is for swimming, no surfer waves, safe and calm for those who are not strong swimmers, we took every opportunity to swim. If you would like to see one of the greatest creations on earth which are plentiful in Puerto Jimenez and that is none other than the majestic scarlet Macaws, pictures and more pictures. Andrew is well versed with the area and is always available to guide/advise 0n what ever your needs are. As for our family we have found a new friend and a new home, Looking forward to revisiting Andrew and CASA MANGLAR. Two thumbs up.

Get away from it all, yet be one with nature
When we arrived we were literally greeted by about a dozen white-faced/capuchin monkeys as they made their way through the property! This was a beautiful and serene home base for our family (3 kids, 12 and under) to explore the Osa peninsula. You feel as though you are living outdoors in one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, yet you feel completely safe, secure and comfortable (A/C in bedrooms was key!). Walking distance to the beach, center of Puerto Jimenez, bars, restaurants and a grocery store. We all loved the outdoor living and lounging in the hammock -- the TV/DVD player were no match for the awesomeness of the environment. The kids roamed the safe grounds of la Choza del Manglar looking for monkeys, macaws and all the wildlife. Great communication with very friendly and helpful staff/owners who organized our excursions and gave us great insights about what to explore--all of which was spot on...and beyond. We will miss sipping our coffee on the the rooftop terrace looking. English is spoken. If you are looking for a home base to explore all that the peninsula has to offer and be one with nature...then this is the place for you.

Colin, Caroline & family. I'm delighted that your stay at Casa Manglar met your expectations. It's always a great experience when we are able to reconnect with nature & Casa Manglar allows that to happen seamlessly. I sincerely hope that the rest of your vacaction in Costa Rica proves as enjoyable. Wishing you all a very excellent end to 2013 and my best wishes for a fantastic 2014.

This is the old family home of the owners of the resort 'La Chosa del Manglar'. The home is located on the same property as the resort but they are completely invisible from each other. The house is extraordinary in it's sense of oneness with the surrounding environment. The house so smoothly blends into the natural surroundings that is sometimes difficult to define if one is inside or outside the house. It's a one of a kind.
