Spectacular views characterize this LEED designed vacation home located at the gateway to Carate, the Corcovado National Park. This very private and secluded home is located on a 74-hectare private reserve on top of a hill.
Casa Iseami has won awards for sustainability and design and generates it own power from solar panels and a Pelton wheel turbine, allowing for a comfortable but limited supply of energy. Three couples can sleep comfortably in the house. The house features 2 stories, 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. The upstairs room features 2 king beds and the downstairs room a queen bed. Children can be accommodated in bunk beds. A wrap-around balcony has a dining room table that seats 12. Downstairs is the deck and pool (the latter featuring a shallow submerged platform for chaise lounges) in addition to another dining area for 8 next to the gas bbq. The first floor area can be used for setting up the ping pong table, the massage table, or can be used for meditation and yoga.

All of the houses around the Osa Peninsula area are eco-houses that use solar power. Solar power is a renewable energy and thus helps to reduce global warming. Solar panels on the roof can provide up to 10.800 kWh of electricity, this energy can also heat up the water in the house. The house uses water from the forest, which also serves as a power source thanks to two low-impact hydroelectric turbines that crank 800 kWh.
Usually the light during the day is sufficient to light up the rooms, as the sun rises at 5 and goes down around 5:30pm-6:00pm. Since the house is not equipped with strong light bulbs or fluorescent lights, you’ll also need to use candles, lanterns, and flashlights.
Please do not bring coffee makers, radios, stereos, hairdryers, and other appliances a typical 120-volt outlet will support. These appliances will drain all of the solar energy, leaving none for basic use. You may bring battery chargers for your video and still cameras. Unplug this appliance when finished charging.
