Casa Lapas is a beautiful house with easy access, incredible views. It is also within 20 minutes of beaches (Playa Tortuga, Playa Ventanas) restaurants, hiking (on site) and tours .

2) The old wooden deck was removed and replaced with a new, 40% larger deck, new pool-side furniture
3) New sidewalks encircling the swimming pool.
4) New picnic table space added (now there are two areas next to the pool providing a great place to socialize without having to be in the pool). They are also great places to put cocktails and snacks while enjoying the outdoors.
5) The rancho had rain gutters added, tile flooring, ceramic tile counter tops, a gas stovetop and emergency lighting.
6) Emergency lighting added on the mainfloor kitchen area.
7) New master-suite furniture, bed, mattress
8) New linens and towels throughout the home.
9) Two new SmartTV's. One in the living room/sala and one in the master suite.

Magnificent house
The house is really pretty. It is a real pleasure to use the swimming pool between 3 and 5 pm, after a warm day, checking at the sunset on the sea and the birds, even big red aras almost everyday. Inside, you have place, a nice cosy living room, full kitchen and the outside kitchen is pretty too. We have passed 5 nights at casa Lapas. From there we went to Sierpe for a mangrove Tour and in the mountains, it is a good spot to reach Corcovado parque. The people from Osa were nice and helpful every time we had a question. It is not the most recent house they have but for the price, it is more than what we expected.

Experience my family will cherish for years
The views, sunsets, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and kind workers really make this a very very special place. This is an experience that my wife and children will cherish for years to come. Being someone also interested in moving to the area, Nick and Osa Property Management took the time to explain some questions about the area was a valuable resources for anyone interested in buying property or investing in the area. Thanks again Osa Property Management Team! All the best! Jim

Been there 4 times...looking forward to #5!
Wonderful place to stay. Renting Las Lapas is like having your own piece of paradise. There were your typical problems of staying in a 3rd world country, but Osa Property Management is in constant contact with the on-site property manager, and she responds immediately. The newly-tiled pool and the ran home out back are luxurious add-ons Pura vida!

Es un refugio donde las personas encuentran la paz y tranquilidad
La casa es espectacular, la vista hacia montañas y mar es increible. Las fotos que se muestran en la pagina son iguales a la propiedad. Es un refugio donde las personas encuentran la paz y tranquilidad que andan buscando. Los locales del pueblo son muy amables y generosos. Aca ud puede andar en bicicleta, correr y caminar, ademas de ir a las diferentes playas. Preferiblemente ir en vehiculo 4x4. Nick y Abigail son muy agradable y se preocupa por el bienestar de sus huespedes. Recomiendo mucho el lugar, es una zona muy interesante.

Dreaming of going back
We spent 7 days at Casa Lapas and have been dreaming of going back ever since. The spacious house was perfect for our family of 5. The private pool was a great place to relax in the evening watching the sunset over the ocean in the distance. The wood rocking chairs were the perfect place to have the first cup of coffee in the morning. There are many great restaurants in the area (small and family owned) and amazing day trips that kept us busy. Traveling to Costa Rica has been our families favorite vacation and we do plan to return!

Exactly what we needed
We drove up to it and were greeted by the beautiful house, striking views of the mountains, pool...exactly what we needed.

Incredible Place!
The house in San Buenaventura is an incredible place. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and beautiful place to stay in Costa Rica. It has all of the modern amenities you could ask for and then more.
