Jim and Trisha were absolutely wonderful hosts! The cabina was comfortable, close to the beach, and surrounded by beautiful native plants. I especially liked the front porch hammock where I spent a lot of time. Loved the short walk to the beach down a path covered with hibiscus. The sunrise looking across Golfo Dulce was gorgeous and definitely worth getting up at 5 am. Saw monkeys, macaws, and parrots daily. It is a short walk to Martina's Bar and Resturant for good food and a wonderful artisans' farmers market on Friday nights that was more like a party than just a market. There is a friendly group of neighbors (residents and guests alike) to visit with at dinner or the beach, yet the beach is not at all crowded. Would recommend bringing water shoes as the beach is rocky. Overall a wonderful place to stay, relax, and rejuvenate. Would highly recommend this property as an affordable and beautiful vacation rental.

Very unhappy guest. Driveway is not marked as they claim. No electricity-solar only. Not secluded, the main house is nearby, and another guest house is about 20 feet away and many other homes are within a close proximity. The compost pile is about 10 feet away from the Casa Titi so it smells of garbage. The only internet is at the main house in their living room. We saw cockroaches in the cabin and a line of huge ants. That was enough for the six hours we were there. We are still waiting on a refund. I am sure Jim and Trish will respond to this but are not responding to our refund emails. On a side note the beach is very rocky and not good swimming
I had the privilege of staying at Ola Mar a few nights... and wish I could have stayed longer! It's the perfect rustic yet comfortable spot walking distance to the ocean's edge! It has all the amenities you need -- and is also set in the most beautiful natural surroundings with well-kept flowers, trees and Costa's amazing birds and monkeys. The community is absolutely lovely with the local meeting spot (restaurant, etc) just a short walk away. There's even a yoga studio with classes at the home next door. Connect with friendly locals or walk solo to your heart's desire -- surf, relax and be happy! This is the place to do it.

Actually, we didn't make to the location for all kind of reasons. But Jim worked a solution for us and made so easy for a solution. I highly recommend Jim's place for the Osa experience.

It's was great to meet the owners, everything was just as described.
I have never experienced the sights and sounds of a jungle.. Noisy but so peaceful. We spent a day hiking up the creek/river searching for waterfalls and although they weren't huge we definitely found what we were looking for.
A drive into town for food was easy and pleasant, the locals are helpful and friendly.
Yes I would highly recommend this for your peaceful getaway.
Thank you for Two great nights in the beautiful landscape of Costa Rica
