The Monkey House
For our more adventurous guests who wish to experience the Costa Rica rainforest vacation to the fullest, we offer the pride of Lookout Inn Lodge- the secluded Monkey House. Tucked away from the other rooms, the Monkey House cabana is perched in the jungle mountainside and rests in a rainforest canopy. This open-air treehouse style cabin provides a picturesque view of Costa Rica’s beautiful Osa coastline and black sand beach by day and the sounds and rumblings of the jungle rainforest by night. The Monkey House is spacious and very accommodating. It includes a queen-sized bed on its main floor, a loft with a queen bed, a private open style shower and a sitting room to enjoy the world as it flies, walks or swings by. Adjacent to Lookout Inn’s Monkey House is a private deck covered with lounge chairs and hammocks for complete relaxation. During your rainforest vacation at the Lookout Inn Lodge, you will be in awe of the abundant variety of wildlife that continuously surrounds you.
The Monkey House is located under a popular “catwalk” for the many troops of monkeys that make the jungle their home. As guests of the Costa Rican rainforest, you are in for a treat. When you wake in the morning you will be treated to a grand symphony of the rainforest jungle. Make sure to keep the camera close at hand as you won't want to miss all the action. Get photos of Scarlet Macaws, Toucans and other colorful tropical birds flying overhead, squirrel and white-faced capuchin monkeys swinging by, enormous blue Morpho butterfly’s floating by, a puma, or watch an endangered tapir walking in the distance. The Lookout Inn’s Monkey House room offers you a relaxing Costa Rica rainforest experience; a view that you will never be able to fully describe and an experience that you will never be able to (or want to) forget. Pura Vida!

The Lookout Tiki Huts
The two open air A-Frame Tiki Huts at Lookout Inn Lodge are located on a living hillside 10 feet off the ground that present you with an exciting treehouse feeling. The Tiki Huts are surrounded by a colorful garden mixed with orchids, exotic flowers, banana and fruit trees, jungle growth and giant Joba trees full of Iguanas and Scarlet Macaws. Each hut has a queen-sized bed with overhead netting, table and chairs, fan and lights. Both huts are separated completely out of view from the other, with a shared central bathhouse located in the middle. This unique bathhouse is very private. You are only exposed to the animal kingdom! It is complete with an open front that faces the Pacific Ocean and the tropical rainforest. This bathhouse just might provide the greatest shower you will ever take!
Unique from other accommodations, the huts are accessible only by a wooden walkway winding through giant Joba trees. Enjoy the walk from Lookout Inn Lodge’s bottom deck onto the boardwalk that winds around the rainforest trees and then down a few steps to your Tiki hut’s private entrance. This walkway continues on and winds through a hilly garden, to the horse corral, to the black sand beach, and also passes a high platform with a hammock and chair. The high platform is a perfect place for yoga or to bird watch.

The Lookout Inn Lodge Grounds
The grounds of the Lookout Inn are surrounded by beautifully
manicured flowering hibiscus which create trails from the roaring Pacific
Ocean to the cool fresh water swimming pool and wooden staircase that
takes you up to the most spectacular ocean views you'll see in the area.
| Lush tropical gardens

on the creative landscaping that includes a variety of flowers,
fruit trees, amazing bird life and more.
Perched on the side of a steep hill right above the road and expansive
beach, the inn commands an absolutely
Spectacular View of the surrounding rain forest, endless coast line of the Osa Peninsula and of course, the
majestic Pacific Ocean.
The property covers 11 acres, peaking on top of it's own ridge high
above the ocean.
The structure is a combination of American Southwest and Tropical, with
stucco walls featuring arched doorways and windows complete with
tropical hardwood trimmings and accents. Sandalwood plays an
important part in the aesthetics.
You don't ever have to rough it here if you don't want to. A solar
power system supplies plenty of power for lights, fans and 110
volt outlets. A satellite telephone is also available for your convenience.
The second story has the kitchen, covered deck, lounging room with stereo and a large library specializing in natural history and Costa Rica in particular.

An artistically crafted spiral
staircase in the kitchen leads to the open-air observation
deck where the breathtaking vista can be zoomed in on using a
high powered telescope.
There is also an observation bar here as well as under-roof seating
for your dining pleasure. Part of the deck is open to the sun and
all is surrounded by a beautiful balustrade of natural driftwood.
Recent new additions to the Lookout Inn include a spacious deck in
front of the guest rooms for lounging or candlelit dining, a massive
wooden staircase that spans from the new deck down to the gardens
and beach below, a spacious private bungalow separate from the main
house, and a cascading cool tub that overlooks the views of the gardens.
