Less for larger groups best to inquire and get a custom price, if your not going to be there for lunches out on tours etc. And they do everything, cleaning too.

About the neighbourhood
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 five-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. Living here is for people with a little more pioneer spirit who are looking to co-exist with unspoiled nature. Much of the peninsula is still without electricity and four wheel drive is a necessity here....
Getting around
Taxi's are 30 mins away and cost $60 each way so best to rent a car, unless you plan to relax at the house/pool/beaches and there are many Tours/Activities within walking/Hiking distance.
