Welcome to Tres Palmas
Enjoy the highs of Costa Rica, at the beautiful hilltop Villa Tres Palmas, boasts a Panoramic 180 degree view of the Pacific-Ocean, the Golfo Dulce and all the way to Panama, unlike no other. And nestled into the most lush animal filled jungle rain-forest of the Osa Peninsula, and just steps away from the white sand beaches of Cabo Matapalo, some of the most breathtaking beaches in all of Costa Rica. This 8000 sf five-bedroom villa, the largest and most prestigious home of its kind in the Osa, has as many or more of the modern comforts of most local boutique hotels with the privacy of your own private estate. “It is your own private estate”, consisting of 25 acres, with the villa backing up into the lush primary rain forest, that keeps your days and nights pleasant with the cool jungle and ocean breezes.
Luxury Vacation Rental
The villa is divided into three areas, a main gathering area, The Rancho a massive 4000sf round building with a six story tall Thatched roof, built with Tropical-Polynesian style architecture. There are four suites in total, two 700 sf king suites both with full private baths and alfresco showers, perfect for couples that want that romantic privacy, also with your own private veranda that overlooks the Pacific ocean. And two 800sf queen suites; these have an attached bedroom for families, both with full private baths and alfresco showers and private decks. Then there is the Loft in the Rancho with two queen beds and two singles beds with mosquito nets, although you need not use them. Altogether the villa can sleep twenty guests in their own comfortable bed, but with so much to do why sleep, when you are not indulging in our Infinity pool or hiking around the property or heading down to the beaches, waterfalls, tidal pools.
Tres Palmas is truly exceptional. For those who care about these things, the quality of the construction, the finishes, and landscaping of this property were absolutely first-class. We spent a good deal of time admiring the enormous thatched roof and never ascended or descended the driveway on foot or by vehicle without shaking our heads in wonder that someone constructed that acutely steep path. Nota bene: do not rent an undersized vehicle — follow the guidelines outlined on the website, you’ll be very glad you did.
There’s so much more to tell you, but honestly, Tres Palmas was such a wonderful experience I almost hate to share it. You will not be disappointed.
This was our 2nd time in Costa Rica; Osa was a new area for us and we are so glad we chose Tres Palmas in every single way. Our entrance to the villa was breathtaking and truly spectacular. The profusion of flowers, the incredible view, the design and the layout was perfect for our group of 12: Ron and I (parents and grandparents) daughter Lara and her husband and 2 teenage girls, son Jere and his son and daughter, Zach and his son and daughter (kid’s ages 4 to 17). It was easy to select the perfect room for us. We really loved all the cozy areas in the large rotunda to appeal to any given constellation of people for games, coloring, reading, napping. The kids loved the pool, there were always fresh towels stacked up for us, we had room on a shelf and the fridge for our groceries and the kitchen was always neat and clean.
Thank you so so much! Ginny & Ron
The place is very likely THE best place to stay when you are visiting the Osa Peninsula. It is pricey but well worth the money. The view from the property over the Dulce Gulf toward Panama is outstanding. The primary house structure is one of a kind, an architectural marvel, made, seemingly, without a single nail. You can observe animal life right from the house; the place is the one the birdwatchers will die for. Have about a dozen scarlet macaws, few toucans and aracaris, curassows, small parrots, caracaras, white hawks and couple more birds in a view simultaneously is a fantastic experience.
Our stay at Tres Palmas was too short ..next time we will stay a week!
The photos don’t do this house justice..it is a stunner and the staff were wonderful. This was our 4th visit to the Matapalo area and by far the best.
I have never seen so many toucans which are my favourite of all birds.
Thank You Brad and George we had a wonderful stay.
The opportunities for adventure are truly unlimited for the outdoor enthusiast from the moment they arrive at Tres Palmas. We are situated 500’ feet above the shoreline with a tropical rain forest surrounding us. From almost anywhere in the villa one can view the Pacific Ocean and the Golfo Dulce with the tip of Panama in the distance. Behind us are hundreds of acres of primary forest teaming with wildlife. We are home to four species of monkeys, scarlet macaws, several species of toucans and hundreds of other species of birds and animals.
Costa Rica Seasons
Our area of Costa Rica basically has two seasons: the Dry Season (December through April) and the Green Season (May through November). During the dry season, there is very little rainfall. Humidity is low and there is normally a brisk breeze to keep you cool. The Green Season was named because the countryside comes alive like the springtime in temperate climates. One can expect afternoon showers most afternoons for about an hour or so. October and November are the rainiest months, but it really depends on how many tropical waves pass our way.
Tres Palmas Location
Jutting out from the southern coast of Costa Rica, lies the Osa Peninsula, the country’s wildest and most spectacular region. The peninsula is bordered on the east by the Golfo Dulce and on the west, the Pacific Ocean. It is more remote than other, more developed parts of the country like Quepos, Dominical or Guanacaste. The Osa is accessible by road, an eight-hour drive from San Jose along the Pan American highway, or 45 minutes by one of the daily commuter flights. It is more lush and tropical here than in northern Costa Rica with spectacular wildlife, deserted beaches and virgin forests.
History of Tres Palmas
The area was once home to the Brunca Indians that settled in southern Costa Rica and the western part of Panama. Pieces of native pottery can be found by those that care to look. The Indians considered this a holy place and many who stay here find a spiritual peace that is quite uplifting.
Our property is home to four types of monkey, hundreds of bird species, sloth, iguana, anteaters, and a myriad of other animal and plant species. This magical place offers the rare opportunity to experience nature at its most spectacular and unspoiled.
