Holiday Rental House
Scarlet House was designed to be our full time residence. We plan on building a small hotel that caters to group retreats and nature enthusiasts. Until then, we are opening our home to share with the world. Completely off the grid but with all the amenities to make you feel comfortable. The diverse ecosystem provides experiences that you can only get here. Beaches, mountains, animals, forest, all here! Corcovado National Park is recognized by National Geographic as one of the top National Parks in the entire world. Luckily the animals do not know the parks boundaries so you can enjoy many of them from our house. Monkeys galore! Our house is unique in this area.

Completely off the grid but with all the amenities to make you feel comfortable. The diverse ecosystem provides experiences that you can only get here. Beaches, mountains, animals, forest, all here! Corcovado National Park is recognized by National Geographic as one of the top National Parks in the entire world. Luckily the animals do not know the parks boundaries so you can enjoy many of them from our house. Monkeys galore! Our house is unique in this area. We love the jungle and the ocean but we also like to come home to conveniences. We have hot showers, clean drinking water, a full kitchen, a strong solar electric system, and great Wi-Fi. This may seem standard but that is not the case in this area. The house is screened-in open air and does not have air conditioning. There are not any properties with air conditioning in the area. Every room does have a fan and you will find that the nights cool down significantly. Our property has many fruit trees including, pineapple, mangos, avocado, limes, bananas, plantains, jack fruit, mandarin, cacao, cashews, coconuts, and more! We also have a garden for you to pick from. You are welcome to anything you find on our property.More

About the neighbourhood
The most biologically intense place on earth, according to National Geographic, provides endless opportunities to see things you cannot see anywhere else. Bring your binoculars and cameras. You will have plenty of plants and animals to see. Four species of monkeys, scarlet macaws, ant eaters, 1000 year old tress, just to name a few. Carate is the stopping point to enter Corcovado National Park. You must travel by foot approximately 3.5 KM to the park entrance. There is also yoga classes, surfing, zip lining, kayaking, horseback riding, gold panning, spa treatments, and much more that we can organize for you. We are here to make sure that you have the best vacation possible.
Getting around
This is a small beach town. Carate only has a school and a church. Everything else is about 1 hour drive. But everything you need is here and we can make sure that you do not miss anything. You can walk everywhere in Carate. The beach is a short 2-3 minute walk from our house and 2 minutes to the lagoon. Also, many people fly into Puerto Jimenez and drive to Carate. If you are doing this and need transportation we can help coordinate that for you.
