We just got back from an amazing Costarican adventure with our three kids, 13, 11, and 8. My husband and I have been to the Osa peninsula 4 times but this was the first trip with the kids so we decided to rent a house. We had the most wonderful time at the Whale Resort! It definitely exceeded our expectations! This is a gem of a place with the best ambiance around.
The property is amazing, the pool was so nice if you wanted to cool off in the fresh water instead of the ocean. The ocean was such a fun place to hang out too, SO warm. There is a cool little river flowing out to the ocean from the property and the water is really shallow for quite a ways out. The tides coming in and out were really cool to watch too. There is a balcony all along the second floor of the house that we sat on to have our coffee every morning and watched the ocean waves, the toucans, the macaws and the monkeys! And the king size bed in the upstairs bedroom was so comfy! I want to buy one of those for my home it was such a great night sleep! The trails through the property were cool to walk as well. The trees are so beautiful and the wildlife is abundant. We felt very safe and taken care of by both the caretaker, Ceaser, who lives on the property with his wife and his son, and their concierge Raoul who met us right when we got into “town” to guide us down to the beach house. He also helped us arrange our canopy zip lining adventure and showed us around the town of Puerto Jimenez which is about 20 min away. I was a little nervous about sending money, just because I am very careful about how I pay people, but I sent it to Michael’s bank account and everything turned out perfect! Could not be happier!!! If you have any specific questions, please ask! I am happy to give a reference to anyone wanting to stay there! We all had so much fun and were never bored! Thank you Fox’s for sharing your bit of paradise with us! Your property and the people you employ to take care of your guests are TOP NOTCH!!!
