Bahía Ballena'de rezervasyon yapıldı

Güney Pasifik Kıyısı yakınlarında güzel ve çok özel 'eko-lüks' geri çekilme. Benzersiz ve çarpıcı konumumuz, konuklara panoramik deniz manzarası sunar ve orman kanadının üstünde asılı durur. Romantik kaçamak, doğa severler ve adrenalin önemsiz cennet!
WELCOME to Pura Vida Ecolodge, a unique 'eco-luxury' award-winning retreat nestled amongst virgin rain forest just 5 km from the volcanic sands of the Pacific Ocean in Central America's Costa Rica. The ecolodge been awarded with a 'Certificate of Excellence' every year since opening by TripAdvisor, was designed by award winning Architect Franco Casalvolone (FCB Arquitectura) and has been awarded with the Airbnb 'Super Host' badge for the last three consecutive seasons as well! This is the place for guests who want to disconnect, be ‘off-grid’ and get away from it all. It’s for those of you who have a sense of adventure, are up for trying something new, enjoy bumpy and steep roads in a 4x4 and who, come rain or shine, won’t let the weather stop them from doing what they want. It’s an adrenalin junkies paradise, perfect for those who want to wake up to the sounds of monkeys, trek through the jungle and jump in a freshwater plunge pool all before breakfast! It’s for the nature lovers among you who will no doubt discover animals of all shapes and sizes throughout their stay both on our lodge’s doorstep and with perhaps, the occasional smaller visitor inside. It's for the venturesome globetrotter who doesn't mind the occasional cold shower or the intense heat or humidity as the season dictates. It’s for new age travellers who are ready to respect, accept and embrace a different and more laid back culture than perhaps they’re used to ‘back home’. It’s for those of you that are happy with less and don't constantly strive for more more more, as we’ve tried to incorporate the ‘pure life’ lifestyle that Costa Rica’s Zona Sur offers in abundance into the design of our lodge, so it’s the perfect getaway for those who are ready to arrive with their minds and eyes wide-open, for guests that seek romance, beauty, fun and adventure. This is, as they say, the ‘real' Costa Rica as our beautiful and breezy location, at an altitude of just over 300 meters and with over 3 acres of private land, boasts stunning panoramic sea views over the lush valleys towards the meandering 'Rio Terraba' and directly faces the Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica's spectacular sunsets and the world famous National Parks - Isla del Caño & Osa Peninsula. The most magical times are the early mornings and late afternoons where you can sit back with a freshly made juice or a glass of wine and be a spectator of nature with monkeys, pizotes, parrots and toucans all frequently visiting the lodge and it's surrounding reserve. Pura Vida Ecolodge is a peaceful sanctuary to experience and embrace the 'Pura Vida' (Pure Life). A destination where guests can enjoy not only a memorable holiday, but tranquility, adventure and equilibrium in a utopia second to none. Our private 'Eco-Chic' retreat is your chance to relax and truly let go, to welcome an organic, integral experience for contemplation, rejuvenation and nurturing among friends, family and loved ones. A place where it's entirely possible to travel in style without feeling guilty - Experiencing a sustainable lifestyle as our ecolodge is set up with rain water catchment, solar panels and a 100% natural water source right from the mountains.

LIVING SPACES - The lodge's contemporary communal living space is located upstairs and offers guests a fully equipped 'American-style' open-plan kitchen, dining table (space for 6) as well as a comfortable and stylish lounge area. The whole of the upper level of our Ecolodge is surrounded by a ‘wrap-around' teak deck, hanging dramatically over the jungle canopy - perfect for yoga, sunbathing or enjoying the fantastic panoramic views on offer. There is of course, also the infinity plunge pool, the perfect escape when the sun gets too much as it's filled to the brim with fresh cool water straight from a natural spring in the mountain. YOGA & GYM - We have recently extended the deck around the plunge pool with a new outdoor rain shower as well. You'll also love our large yoga deck, exercise and body weights area (with pull up & dip bars etc) again complete with another outdoor rain shower and a 'chill out area', all hanging dramatically on the edge of our nature reserve - so you can enjoy the lodge's valley, ocean and sunset views whether working out or just relaxing. LOCATION & ACTIVITIES - At the same time as being near local beaches, restaurants and other tourist attractions, Pura Vida Ecolodge's location is both remote and private and the retreat itself will provide you with all sorts of adventures and experiences. We have our own nature trails, waterfalls & natural plunge pools both near the ecolodge & on the edge of the Pura Vida Ecolodge Reserve - the easiest trail starts right by the ecolodge, with more challenging treks on the edge of the reserve just a short up-hill walk (300m) from the lodge. Your adventure can be as extreme or relaxing as you choose with a plethora of natural swimming pools, waterfalls and rock faces to explore! Whether you are honeymooners, a group of friends or a large family of 7, you will have the entire ecolodge just to yourselves. We have also planted lots of trees, so please be our guests and pick any of the fruits they are all obviously 100% organic! If you venture off any of the paths, take your boots and maybe a hiking pole. We are just a 10-15 minute drive (depending on season & road conditions) from the Costa Nera Highway allowing guests to easily explore the area with day trips to two of Costa Rica's most popular national parks (Manuel Antonio & Corcovado), stunning beaches (Playa Arco, Tortuga y Ventanas are our three favourites) and our concierge service can help with tours and boat trips, trekking options, scuba diving & snorkelling trips, kayaking, stand up paddling, surfing, hiking, mountain biking, canyoning, canopy lines and horse riding etc. The nearby village of Ojochal (just 5 minutes up the Costa Nera) is one of a few local villages hosting a whole load of fine dining and fusion restaurants or if you'd prefer to relax 'at home' we can happily arrange home-cooked 'tico' meals, food parcels (according to the season, fresh fish, ceviche and seafood all available) and fruit baskets to be delivered direct to the Jungle Villa. ECO-TRAVEL - Eco-travel in Costa Rica is your ticket to explore a plethora of amazing places that care just as much about the environment as they do about their guests. It's a country where 'organic' is as important as 'stylish', and the government plans to make it the world's first carbon-neutral country by 2021. ‘Pura vida' is Costa Rica's national motto, and for good reason. It's a real paradise: Our guests can enjoy the 'pure life' in some of the world's most bio-diverse jungles, rain forests and coastlines. The country's book-ended by beaches on its Pacific and Caribbean sides (hence the laid-back surfer ethos that characterizes coastal life) and inland, nature holds way: a full quarter of Costa Rica is protected land, from the smouldering volcanoes to dense jungles. In the highlands, farms and plantations produce delicious tropical fruit – as well as some of the finest coffee ever to grace your espresso PURA VIDA ECOLODGE FAQs: - WILL I NEED A 4x4 CAR? Yes, our retreat is situated 5km from the coast and the village of Coronado on a well maintained gravel road into the coastal mountains. A 4WD car is necessary. There is a convenience store or “soda" as they are called in Costa Rica, at the Coronado junction, where you can get the majority of your groceries and supplies. For supermarkets, restaurants/bars, beaches, bigger stores, etc. you would require transportation to the local towns of Ojochal (5 mins), Uvita (15 mins) up the Costa Nera Highway. Several taxi services are available but you cannot beat the independence of having your own 4WD. Driving time from San Jose is around 3.5 hours. Full details & directions in welcome pack TIP: Bring coins and change from the US or change colones for the highway tolls! - WHO SHOULD I RENT OUR 4WD WITH? We have been working with Vamos Rent-a-Car since we opened. They speak English and they have various offices around the country (Near San Jose Airport and Dominical amongst others). They will meet you off your flight or even at your hotel if you're setting off early in the morning. Be sure to mention us and Pura Vida Ecolodge to get the best prices & treatment. You should allow around an hour for vehicle collection and paperwork. - IS THERE SOMEONE IN COSTA RICA WHO CAN ASSIST ME WHILE I AM THERE? Yes, once you book Pura Vida Ecolodge, you will be sent the welcome pack which includes all the details of our housekeeper and his wife, who together with myself and Kika, will double up as your 'concierge service' leading up to and throughout your stay. Though our housekeepers are Spanish speaking only, they are very knowledgeable on the area and will be there at checkin & checkout and can help you throughout your stay with anything you might need. I'm sorry we cannot be there but you'll be in very good hands, Gersan & Ili are practically family! - IS THERE A BEACH NEARBY THAT IS EASY TO GET TO? Yes, in fact you are really quite spoilt for choice. Playa Tortuga is the nearest and possibly one of our favourites. Once down at the Costa Nera, it is just a 5 minute drive up the coast. A short drive further up the coast takes you to Playa Piñuelas, Playa Ventanas and then the stunning national park of Marina Ballena and Uvita. Full directions (including which beaches are best for swimming and surfing etc is included in your welcome pack). -HOW EASY IS IT TO FIND PURA VIDA ECOLODGE? Upon confirming your reservation, we send all our guests a welcome pack with very clear directions including photos of landmarks along the way. This is updated monthly as we aim to give all our guests as up-to-date info and recommendations as possible -ARE THERE RESTAURANTS AND SHOPPING NEARBY? Ojochal is the nearest town with a really good selection of fine & casual dining. You can find Fusion, Italian, Asian, “Typical Costa Rican," even a deli/bakery and a handful of great fruit smoothie and ceviche places. Further up the coast there is Uvita, again with a good balance of International and 'local' options. We include a full list of recommendations (both restaurants & bars) in the welcome pack. For shopping, you may wish to visit the bustling tourist town of Manuel Antonio (50-60 minutes drive north) which has souvenir, jewellery, and art/craft shops and many lively restaurants (we recommend a trip to Manuel Antonio, anyway, for the national park, which a lot of our guests do either on the way down or on the way back up to San Jose. -ARE THERE EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES CLOSE BY? Yes, yes, yes! Again, you can find more details on the Pura Vida Ecolodge web site, but there are spectacular waterfalls, nature trails and plunge pools right in the reserve itself. The surrounding area offers world class scuba diving, snorkelling, zip-lining, boat tours, mangrove tours, hiking, stand-up paddling, horseback tours, canyoning, as well as being located between the country's best national parks (Corcovado & Manuel Antonio) and a 20 minute drive from Marina Ballena National Park. There are dozens of picturesque, quiet beaches all the way up and down the Southern Pacific coast, with enough activities and adventures on offer to do something completely different every day! We can also recommend great day trips to the Osa Peninsula, Sierpe and Nuayaca Falls amongst others and an overnight option to Mt Chirripo is incredible if you have the time. For surfers, Playa Dominical has a famous left and right beach surf break, and waves 95% of the year. Closer to the lodge, Playa Tortuga and Ventanas often have good waves more for beginners or if you're after an almost private beach and wildlife experience, you can have breakfast or lunch at La Cusinga and then explore the different monkey colonies. if you're lucky you might spot some Red Scarlet Macaws and guests also regularly see lots of toucans and different types of parrots. The 10-min walk through the jungle down to Playa Arco is well worth the trek! -IS IT A QUIET NEIGHBOURHOOD? Yes, Pura Vida Ecolodge is the best of both worlds. While being a completely private retreat and reserve (both the house, pool and the surrounding nature trails) with it's orientation meaning that the property literally hangs over the jungle canopy on one side and directly faces the Pacific coast on the other, you will have a handful of neighbours nearby in the slowly growing community if you wanted a friendly chat or even some more tips on the area. -IS THERE A GROCERY STORE NEARBY? There is a good little 'pulperia' (small local store) on the crossroads at Coronado (around 5km away) that will most likely have most things you would need. There is also a great fish/seafood place just 1 km from the Coronado junction. For larger shopping, there are two big supermarkets ( as well as a really good Pharmacy) in Uvita, about 15 minutes up the coast -DOES THE ECOLODGE HAVE INTERNET AND CAN I PURCHASE A LOCAL CELL NUMBER? Yes, the house is equipped with WiFi for internet connection and you can even purchase a sim card for around $4 (around 2000 colones) by the luggage claim in the airport, you just need a passport. Sim card is technically free as you can use all of the funds with calls. While cellphone signals have greatly improved in the country, there are some spots around Coronado that don't have reception but there is consistently good signal in and around Pura Vida Ecolodge. Please note that while the WIFI/hotspot is fine for emails and checking the news etc, please don’t expect to be able to stream movies as it's only 3G speed. -WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE? A more detailed description of Costa Rica's seasons can be found on the Pura Vida Ecolodge web site, but in general you can expect about 85+ degrees at the beach year round. The only difference in climate year round is that May-November is the "green," or rainy season, and December through March/April is the dry season. The temperature up at the Ecolodge is always a few degrees cooler because it is around 1000ft. elevation, and you get great mountain breezes. Likewise, because of its proximity to the equator, the sunrise is around 5-5.30am with the sunsetting at 5.30-6pm. The ‘Green season's' rains are quite welcoming, it's always hot and the partial clouds and afternoon rains are soothing. Typically the rains start on the mountains between 2-4pm, maybe a little later by beach. For us, the best times of the day are between 5-7am. The congo monkeys will wake you up, and it's the most glorious part of the day and besides you'll most likely be asleep by 8/9pm! It's amazing how quickly you'll adjustment! -WHICH ROOMS HAVE AIR CONDITIONING? Both bedrooms/suites have A/C: the Ocean View Suite on the first floor, and the Jungle View Suite on the ground floor. Please note there is not A/C throughout the rest of the home, but there are ceiling fans in each room and the Ecolodge has been designed with your comfort in mind, with large-open plan living spaces, surrounded by sliding doors leading out onto the wrap around decks which mean there are lovely fresh sea-breezes throughout. -WILL I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME? You need not bring any household items as all bedding, tableware, towels, cookware etc are all provided. We also provide a wonderful fruit basket and some other local delicacies on arrival. Bring only your personal items, and of course a sense of 'Pura Vida' adventure! -IS PURA VIDA ECOLODGE A PRIVATE LOCATION? Yes, not only is the location incredibly private but regardless of your group size, you will have the entire retreat (house and surrounding reserve) just to yourselves. A lot of our guests are honeymooners and couples, as well as groups of friends and entire families. Either way, whether you are 2 people or a group of 6 with kids, you will have the entire property to yourself. - IS COSTA RICA SAFE? In general Costa Rica is very safe, however petty crimes do happen especially by the beaches or touristy areas. Do not bring any valuables to Costa Rica with you and especially do not bring them with you to the beach. TIP: Leave the glove department open to indicate it's empty.
Mahalle, konuklarına huzurlu ve sakin bir konaklama imkanı sunmaktadır ve bol miktarda doğa ve çarpıcı flora ve faunaya sahiptir. Congo tellalı maymun sesleriyle uyanabilir ve tünellerin evin hemen yanından geçtiği gün batımını izleyebilirsiniz. Doğa parkurları ve şelaleler sadece kısa bir yürüyüş mesafesindedir ve ayrıca maceraları Pura Vida Ecolodge'un kapısına kadar sürer!
  • Exactly as pictured and described. Great place. Super layout, design and construction. I've stayed at dozens of places in Costa Rica and this is one of my favorites.

  • Having just returned back from 14 days in Pura Vida we are suffering with severe "holiday blues". Our Pura Vida experience has been amazing! The lodge and location exceeded our expectations and the host Gerzan was a delight! The lodge has everything you need and the owners Jo & Kika kept in contact with us and had we needed to we could have contacted them at any time. A 4x4 is a must would recommend a manual one. The road seems a bit scary at first but once you go up and down once or twice it its fine. There are too many things to list about how amazing this place is, highlights are firstly the "STUNNING" location, we spent so many lazy days just sitting on the deck listening to the sounds of the jungle and taking in the incredible view. Gerzan's mangrove tour is a MUST! Swiming in the numerous waterfalls. We visited the local animal sanctuary which was really cool and we also went on a wonderful horseback ride up to a waterfall for a swim ( at Rancho La Merce in Uvita). National Park Tour (saw Dolphins and Turtles on the way). There are too many beatuiful beaches to list here and hardly anyone on them and lovely sunsets. The sea is warm as is the weather at all times but not unbearably hot. I regularly applied deet and did not have any problems with bites. We saw, Howler Monkeys, Scarlet Macaws, owls, Iguanas, birds, insects and one evening a host Cappucino Monkeys (by the beach). Costa Rica way of life is laid back and friendly. Favourite thing of all??? Leaving behind the TVs, mobiles etc and sharing the peace and seclution of "Pura Vida" ecolodge with our dearest friends! Thank you so much Jo & Kika for sharing your piece of paradise with us and enabling us to meet our new friend Gerzan. We will be back for sure.

  • Pura Vida Ecolidge is a very beautiful place with a spectacular view ans surrounding. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, we loved the boat tour with Gersan and Capitano through the mangroves and the delicious dinner on the beach. Our daugther was Reading for hours in the pool and we all really had time to relax and enjoy the nature. To celebrate New Years Eve at your place is an unforgettabel memory for us. The way to the ecolodge definitely needs an SUV and some driving experience,but if you got too ot an your way down, you can jump into the river and cool down, It's a perfect place to experience Costa Rica.

    Rita2015-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful adventure at Pura Vida Ecolodge. We loved the feeling that we were truly immersing ourselves in the Costa Rican experience, something that simply cannot be accomplished if you stay at a resort/hotel. Yes, we booked a tour of a national park (Corcovado), and yes, we went ziplining (Osa Mountain Tours), both of which are within easy driving distance of the house. But our favorite experiences were the things that can ONLY be done by staying at Pura Vida Ecolodge: the nature hikes that are merely steps away from the property are indescribably beautiful and enchanting, and our trip through the mangroves to Playa Garca, where we literally had the entire beach to ourselves thanks to housekeeper Gerzan's private boat tour, was unforgettable. Getting to the house is an adventure unto itself as you climb the winding, steep dirt road, but we loved it and considered it to be part of the experience. And the views that you see in the pictures are even more incredible when you see them in person. We never had to turn on the air conditioning because of the nice cool breeze, particularly in the evenings. And you will enjoy being awoken by the howler monkeys each morning! If you are looking for a unique experience that is truly off the beaten path, then this is a good home for you to rent. Its proximity to activities (national parks, ziplines, beaches, etc.) is excellent, and there are some great restaurants just up the road in Ojochal (Exotica was my personal favorite -- try the shrimp banana curry dish, it's delicious!). At the same time, you are far enough away from things that you will not feel like a tourist. My wife and I feel that our daughters not only enjoyed themselves, but also gained an appreciation for Costa Rican culture that they would not have had if we were to have stayed elsewhere. Our whole family left Pura Vida Ecolodge saying that it was the best vacation we've ever taken.

    Tim2014-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house with a spectacular view. Everything was perfect organised.

    sora2015-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great experience all around, staying for a week. Joe and Kika have provided useful and timely information and support. The house is really in the middle of nature and the kitchen/living room let's you experience all the noises of the jungle, while the sleeping rooms have had windows and aircondition, providing a more quiet and on demand cooler environment. The local help Gersan is nice and we can only recommend the boat tour that he offers.

    Christian2014-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I were fortunate, to be some of the first to have ever stayed at Pura Vida Ecolodge. We spent 8 absolutely magnificent days in the remote lodge, far away from the bustle and hustle of big cities or even settlements. The lodge is very artfully crafted from natural material and the photos on this page do not even do it complete justice how well designed it all is. Simple, yet stylish and very open. Having the sliding doors open all day whether rain or shine allowed us to always experience the rainforest at the doorstep in its fullest including the various sound and lightscapes. During the day, one can lounge on the deck, sit in the pool or simply walk around the various (unpaved/natural) roads and paths without seeing a single soul. We found howler monkeys, all sorts of insects, butterflies and birds over birds. The drive down into the little village of Coronado is a bit of a challenge given some steep parts and a 4WD is a must here. If one does not want to bother going "to town" too often, we would definitely recommend buying some basic groceries for some days in advance before making the way up to the lodge. There are also some nice restaurants in close vicinity from Coronado up and down the main highway, specifically towards Uvita. Getting to the lodge from SJO was about a 4 hour drive without major breaks and adhering to the speed limit. Overall, we can recommend Pura Vida 100% to everybody who is looking for serenity, natural bliss and an almost spiritual experience. For us, coming from NYC, it was a perfect antidote to the hectic city life. Listening to and living in the rainforest is a truly amazing experience. Thanks to Joe and Kika for this fantastic place!

  • My husband and I went to the Ecolodge on our honeymoon, the booking was very last minute, but Joe & Kiki were quickly able to provide us with more information than we would ever need. The house is better than you can imagine, the location is breath taking, and there are endless opportunities for exploring within the area. The house has everything you need, except for some beach towels, and a pen to sign the guest book. I highly recommend taking the tour with Gersan, it's a wonderful experience, and you'll end up on a private beach with no other tourists. If you're lucky you'll see a family of Macaw's. The house is so peaceful, the pool is nice and cool, and the sounds of the jungle are very relaxing. The house is definitely off the beaten path, but well worth the trek.

  • The place was amazing. Just as advertised in the description and the pictures don't do it justice. The caretakers cooked for a small fee and the food was some of the best we had. The property owners went out of their way to ensure we had a postivitw experience.

  • Villa was perfect and the location and surroundings are amazing. Uvita is a great location. Seen whales on boat tour. ATV offroad tour, which was 1 mile away from villa was our favorite. Super markets and many good restaurants are within 1 mile also. Villa was very clean and a gem in this jungle location. Very private and entrance to property is gated. We felt very safe. The pool with Jacuzzi and cabana are great for relaxing. The villa is situated on a hill providing great views of ocean. Licia and Darling were great hosts and Darling will cook meals for a low price. She will even buy the groceries if you give her notice. Nicolas the owner met us upon arrival to make us feel at home. Also helpful was a book about villa and area with many restaurants listed. Also in book was meals Darling could provide. I would like to go back at least 1/year to this superb villa and the peaceful town of Uvita.

  • Nicolas met us just as promised to take us to the property which was just up the street from the gas station where we met him. He was entirely professional and gracious, explaining the property and showing us the detailed binder of information that was very helpful during our stay. Nicolas was also instrumental in our finding certain adventures we were interested in. Darling and Licho were very attentive and kept the place very clean and helped us get to local attractions without any difficulty (literally drove ahead of us so we could safely follow and not get lost). This property is AMAZING with 180 degree views over the jungle to the sea and very comfortable living. Two markets nearby and a great barbecue cabana with hammocks where we could enjoy the surroundings of the pool, jungle and all the views, with family in a quiet setting with background music of the natural jungle. We saw howler monkeys, toucans along with many other birds, frogs, lizards, a variety of beautiful butterflies and enjoyed a warm pool, jacuzzi and amazing amenities. I highly recommend this location for anyone traveling to Costa Rica, it was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and just as it is pictured in the advertisements. I cannot even remember all the amenities, but they were amazing. This is a beautiful property full with life all around nestled amidst the jungle. Great location.

  • First, the property is isolated, and you need a 4-wheel drive with high ground clearance to get there (also many other restaurants, etc in CR). Second, the house was robbed while we were sleeping. The owner and the house keeper took care of us (left dogs out at night), but guests need to bring everything in and make sure all the doors are locked at night. The house keepers were excellent. We bought groceries and had Darling cook 4 meals for us; they were delicious, authentically CR, and very convenient. We all loved the house, and in spite of being a little traumatized by the theft, LOVE our time at the house.

  • On arrival to the house we were met at the local gas station (very convenient to have one right across the street) by our host and followed him to the home up the street. BTW, we had a few setbacks and arrived way later than expected, but that did not bother our host at all! The house was better than expected. It was clean and inviting. We were shown how to use everything, and introduced to Licho (the grounds/security guard) and Dahrling (the housekeeper/cook). Even though they did not speak English, they understood everything we asked for. Licho even assisted in bringing us to the tours we had booked! Full service home!!! The home was even better than expected. Down the road there is a grocery store, coffee shop, an ATV tour, and a few restaurants! We couldn't have picked a better location. A short drive to Ojachal and Dominical. Playa Hermosa and Manuel Antonio are a little farther, but well worth the drive! Oh, and you must try Jolly Rogers wings if you stay here! Best I have ever had. You cannot go wrong with this home. It was private, close to everything we needed, well kept, and had on-site staff. We will definitely be revisiting this place and staying here again. Thank you for your hospitality!!!

  • The property is a great getaway from the crowds at a typical resort. Nicolas was very gracious in dealing with an unexpected delay in our arrival and provided great tips on the area. As others mentioned, a 4wd vehicle is necessary (this is the case almost anywhere in Costa Rica). Several good restaurants and a well stocked supermarket are conveniently located just minutes from the house. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 teens. Everyone was able to relax and enjoy the vacation with plenty of options to do as much or as little as desired.

  • The House was just wonderful, with a magnificent view of the sea and the jungle. This house is near of downtown but very peaceful. It's clean and confortable. Nicolas, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. And Darling and Licho are very very friendly and they took care of us ! This house is really a good choice for a trip at Uvita ! Thank you Nicolas, Licho and Darling !!! See you soon, I hope !

  • Thank you Juliana, Nicolas, Licho and Darlin for your great warm and hospitality... My family, friends and I could not be any happier! Nicolas, I loved how carefully you were when building your vacation home... from its location all the way to simple details within the house. Your house is absolutely gorgeous! I will sure plan to come back there soon. I wanted to thank Licho for been available to wait for my friend at the gas station late at night as our friend has lost his flight and we were afraid that our friend would not find the house because of the rain that night. Licho stood at the gas station from midnight to 2:30am waiting from our friend. What a nice guy!!!! Much love for you guys and one more time THANK YOU!!!!

    Makara Penthouse is fully appointed, spacious condo, 5 minute drive (10 minute walk *Please read Guest Access) to beautiful Playa Ballena and Marine National Park. This unit is 2200 Sq Ft with open air outdoor patios, full kitchen, bath with tub & shower, King bed with AC in bedroom. Private outdoor jacuzzi to unwind in. Nestled just off the Costanera, and just a 5 minute drive to beautiful Playa Ballena, nature abounds, monkeys, toucans, sloths and stunning sunsets.
    Makara is only about 100 meters from the ocean but walking access is semi restricted. You can walk from our building but have to pass through our neighbors property, called Villas Lenor, and they require you at least purchase a beverage from their bar to access the beach. Recently the Ballena National Park restricted access to encourage visitors to go through the main entrance in Uvita that is monitored by the park where you pay an access fee (around $5). We support this as it protects the park - we hope you support it as well.

    Welcome to Arboura Eco Cabinas. (THIS LISTING IS FOR A-FRAME #4). Situated just steps from the beautiful beaches of Marino Ballena National Park, Arboura Eco Cabinas is a lush oasis on the pacific coast of Costa Rica. The property has five beautiful open-air A-frame cabins, 4 air-conditioned units, a swimming pool and peaceful gardens. At Arboura we can host large groups, couples or individual travelers in affordable, comfortable and stylish accommodations.
    Our property is made up of 5 open-air A-frame cabins, and 4 air-conditioned units. This listing is for Cabin 4. Cabin 4 is an open-air A-frame cabin. It has a double bed upstairs and a single bed downstairs and so can accommodate up to 3 people. This unit has its own kitchen/living area and bathroom set-up all situated in the downstairs area. All A-frame units are equipped with fans. Rent out multiple units to accommodate larger groups.
    We are located in the Bahia neighborhood of Uvita, and only a short 3 minute walk from the beach at the Marino Ballena National Park, where you can go surfing, snorkeling, or just enjoy a day in the sun. We are just down the road from one of the areas most popular restaurants/bars, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and provides an awesome opportunity to mingle with fellow travelers if that's what you're looking for.
  • Arboura is paradize, the cabins are kind of in the middle of the forest and when you sleep there you have a great jungle soundsystem ;-). The location is just genial. In about 3 min. you are on the beach. So the first thing we did in the morning and the last thing at night was swimming in the ocean. Great!!Kyla and Michelle welcomed is very warmly and we could extend our stay very easily - which was very nice. Thanks a lot for this lovely days! We hope we can come back at some time of our life :-)

    Frida 2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location just a few minutes walk from the beautiful beach. Staff were helpful, especially David and Michelle. The huts are quirky and we enjoyed being open to the outdoors, however the build quality and lighting were a bit dodgy - my boyfriend weighs about 200 pounds and his foot went straight through the front step, so he was a bit nervous climbing the stairs to the bed as they bent a lot! The hut also shakes a lot as you move around. Overall we enjoyed our stay, thanks!

  • Uvita is a beautiful place. It rains a lot and the cabins are perfect to get cozy and look at the rainy jungle. Loved it!

    Verena2017-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great and right next to the jungle. We stayed in one of the cabinas after getting in late. The owners showed us to where we were staying and we were able to settle in very easily and got suggestions for local fare. There are restaurants and markets only a short drive away as well. The only thing is, if you are shy, the bathroom and downstairs front and back of the cabinas (at least the one we stayed in) have an open meshlike wall which is see through. I believe it is for ventilation purposes and wasn't a bother, but if you are particular, this may not be the place for you. We loved it! It was like sleeping in the jungle with the sounds of the animals in the night outside and views of the animals in the morning. A quite unique stay.

    Anastasia2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • La cabaña está muy bien, cuenta con todo lo que puedes llegar a necesitar. Se agradece mucho tener una piscina fresquita y sin duda recomendamos el lugar. Está a 5 minutos de la playa y a unos 20 minutos andando del parque Nacional marino ballena. Es aconsejable tener vehículo propio para desplazarse dado que todo está muy disperso en la zona. Personal muy amable!

    Marc2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very functional and open cabin, air and light flow nicely, a cool mixture of basic camping needs with an eco friendly environment. Looking to relax in nature and steps away from the beach? this is it! Hosts are super easygoing and chill. Would definitely come back!

    David2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Increíble lugar para descansar y disfrutar de la naturaleza. Caminata de 30 minutos del camino principal. Te hacen sentir bienvenido desde un inicio.

  • This house is absolutely amazing. The views are incredible. The house was very clean and stocked with essentials. Regina is a great host. Raul the concierge was also great with making sure we had everything we needed and communicating with us during our entire trip. The house is a quick car ride from restaurants, grocery stores and shops. I would love to stay here again.

    Christina2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • This Uvita home is more than fabulous. Every amenity you need is here. The private concierge, Raúl will take excellent care of you. Whether it be getting reservations, setting up the private chef, or actually taking you to a location. Location is outstanding with a gorgeous view. We were more than content just hanging out at the house poolside looking at the Pacific. The guys had an awesome time learning to surf with Uvita 360'. Uvita waterfall was a great outing too and we enjoyed the lunch at the restaurant beside the waterfall. We had the chicken and shrimp tacos and both were delicious. Definitely set up the private chef for at least one dinner. It was an incredible meal-pico de Gallo salad, red snapper with fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes, and dessert was bananas foster. I could go on and on. Don't hesitate to stay here!! We definitely want to go back and stay longer!

    Meredith2017-07-10T00:00:00Z

    cathryn2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our week at Regina’s place was great! We were close enough to Uvita that we could easily go get anything we needed at any time. Olmer the concierge was helpful and gave us any beach and restaurant suggestions we needed. The view of the beautiful whale tail from the house was the best, but our favorite part of the home was the toucans that are around in every tree!

    Kirstie2017-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is extraordinary. The view is magnificent. The house is furnished really nicely so it actually makes you feel welcome and comfortable and not like the host has just provided the bare minimum. Staying at this house was definitely the best part of our trip and we wish that we had just stayed here the entire time that we were in Costa Rica.

    My place is close to the beach (5 min drive - 10 minute walk -*Please Read Guest Access), restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love Makara because of the beautiful space, the friendly staff, the wild life, the kitchen, the large lux bathroom, comfortable king bed & the large open air balcony. It’s also easily convertible by opening access by the spiral staircase and connect to the River Suite below, providing you with two levels that are internally connected.
    This is an amazing open air condo so keep in mind there is only air conditioning in the bedroom. The structure is made of 80% recycled cement with cement floors so tends to keep it cool enough and there is usually a constant ocean breeze - not saying it's not warm and humid at times, after all, it is the rainforest
    We are located about 15 minutes drive from the popular surf town of Dominical and about 10 north of Ojochal, known for their delicious restaurants.

  • Sin duda un lugar excepcional. Si bien el acceso a la villa es para un vehículo alto (no necesariamente 4x4) en verano no es nada complicado. La villa es espectacular, la vista no tiene precio, la villa tiene acabados de primera, super espaciosa, una terraza donde se puede pasar todo el día y simplemente descansar y disfrutar del paisaje que la rodea. Es una villa excepcional. La recomiendo un 200%. Sin duda volvería a este lugar, eso si, en época seca.

  • There were many things about this home that we loved, and a few things that we were very disappointed in. Rating 1-5 with 5 being excellent. HOME * Decor - 5 * Cleanliness - 5 * Landscaping - 5 * View - 5 * Pool - 5 * Functionality - 4 * Bed comfort - 2 * Furniture comfort - 4 * Laundry facility - 4 * Kitchen - 5 * Bathrooms/Showers - 5 * Location/Access to home - 1 AMENITIES * Internet - 0 * Wireless internet - 0 * Cable TV - 4 * Home Video Theatre System - 3 * Air Conditioner - N/A (did not use, not needed) Things that conflicted with how the home is advertised: * The drive up to the home from Uvita is more like 20-25 minutes. * More than just a 4 wheel drive is required. This road (Calle Bejuco) requires a 4 wheel drive that is 6 cylinder or higher, with a manual drive engine. * No internet was available throughout our stay. * Water service was off for 2 days of our stay, while our neighbors who had private water lines, had no issue with water availability. * Host privately communicated that payment for electric usage is due upon check out. This should be noted in home rental information. While the view offered from this home is beautiful, it is (in our opinion) not worth the difficulty experienced with the road to the home. It is a lovely home which is well appointed. The pool area is fantastic. However, this road is the MOST dangerous and difficult road we have ever experienced during our many travels in Costa Rica over the last 5 years (and we have traveled southern Nicoya peninsula and Arenal/Monteverde areas extensively). We went through 3 different rental vehicles in one week and had to pay for a new oil pan that was cracked on one of the giant berms. This road may be much better during other times of the year when it has recently been worked on by the road committee, but for our experience, it was horrendous. We lost several days of our trip due to being stuck on this road. As compensation for the internet not working during our stay, the host offered to waive the "electrical bill" that is due upon check out. There really needs to be mention of an electrical bill in the home rental information. I do appreciate the host, and the communication we had. Once we were able to make it to an internet cafe I was able to let her know about a missing remote control that prevented us from using the home theatre system, as well as the fact that the property manager was unable to get the internet to work for us. The following day, a remove control appeared! Never did get internet though. BIG KUDOS Ivan & Rosa, our cooks and house cleaners were fantastic and the BEST part of our stay!

  • Our visit to Villa Saint Tropez was excellent. The description of the property is accurate. The view is stunning. We'd definitely return for another visit next time we are in Costa Rica. Our host was also excellent. She was very supportive throughout our stay and immediately available from check-in to check-out. The references to having a 4x4 can't be understated ... be sure to have the right vehicle!

    Aaron2016-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. Great property with exceptional view of Punta Ballena and the Pacific Ocean (epic sunsets!). Good communications from owner and attentive care from agent on the ground. Booking and check-in/out run very smoothly. Access requires 4x4 and some courage!

    A newly-built romantic private home and pool perched 250m above Uvita offering mountain breezes, mesmerizing views of the Pacific coast, the iconic Whales Tail and award-winning Ballena Marine National Park. Accessible via 4-wheel drive SUV 2 km up a well-maintained road, Balcón Ballena is in the rainforest amongst monkeys, toucans, parrots, and the sights and the sounds of the jungle. A delightful base for exploring / enjoying the area. Balcón Ballena is rented exclusively to couples.
    Balcón Ballena provides a captivating perch from which a couple can enjoy broad tropical coastal views and the diverse nature and natural beauty of Costa Rica. The surrounding jungle is alive with toucans, aracari, parrots, hummingbirds, howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, pezotes and sloths which can be seen right from your terrace. The property has a lower and upper level with the lower level dedicated for parking one car off of the road behind a privacy wall equipped with a manually sliding wooden gate. From the parking-area you are just steps up to the house, terrace, patio and infinity pool. The house was built oriented toward the best views and integrated into the mountain ridge. Balcón Ballena was designed to shade guests from the tropical sun and take advantage of the cooling mountain breezes you don't find down at sea-level. Most folks find they do not need air conditioning up here however the master bedroom suite has a remote controlled wall-mounted air-conditioner for your comfort just in case. Ceiling fans, Pacific and mountain breezes and the infinity pool usually keep you cool. Balcón Ballena has been thoughtfully constructed and furnished to highlight local craftsmanship, Costa Rican woods, stone, and inspired by the natural beauty and indigenous art of the country. Balcón Ballena offers a well-equipped kitchen with full-size refrigerator / freezer, coffee maker, toaster, oven and an island-mounted gas stove from where you can cook while enjoying a spectacular ocean view out over the infinity pool. Our water comes from a mountain spring tested for purity by our water association. You can drink water at Balcón Ballena. If you prefer bottled water, we provide a container from the supermarket to get you started. Balcón Ballena has two full bathrooms that include showers with river rock walls. The master bedroom shower is a private outdoor shower. Showering with jungle views is a very refreshing experience if you’ve never tried it. Maybe you’ll see a toucan or a monkey! The most attractive feature of Balcón Ballena are sights of the ever-changing interaction of the sun, ocean, sky and jungle. You will begin to feel the rhythm of the tide throughout the day as the Whales Tail emerges at low tide and sinks beneath the water surface at high tide. It is a spectacular place to relax, take in the rainforest and watch the surf breaks down below on Chaman Beach. If you visit during one of Uvita’s world-famous Whale Festivals, on clear days one can use binoculars from the terrace to see whale watching boats cluster near whales off the shore. We've even seen whales spouting from the terrace of Balcón Ballena! Balcón Ballena has an infinity pool for cooling down and relaxing. The pictures say it all. An awesome BBQ grill/smoker is ready to use. Please only used it out on the graveled area next to the pool deck. Please never use the grill inside of the house or underneath the terrace roof. See if you can find the design somewhere else in the house : ) Balcón Ballena offers Wifi service beamed directly from the ISP’s antennae in Uvita. Generally, it provides enough bandwidth to support streaming services however like all utilities here in the rugged jungles of Costa Rica, when you manage your expectations, you’ll probably be satisfied. Cell phone service is also very good at Balcón Ballena due to our location on the mountain, we have direct line of sight to the cellular tower antennae downtown in Uvita. Good cell signals are available from several mobile carriers at the house.
    Balcón Ballena offers stunning vistas of the Bahia coast including the Whales Tail, Isla Ballena and Isla Cano some 60km off the coast. On a clear day you could see all the way down the Osa Peninsula to Drake Bay and Punta Rio Claro National Wildlife Refuge. The beaches of Uvita and the surrounding area are part of Costa Rica's only marine national park. Marino Ballena National Park also hosts the annual Whale & Dolphin Festival. During these periods hundreds of whales return to Uvita from the Southern and Northern Hemisphere to mate. Balcón Ballena offers a mountain view over this coastal area. "The National Marine Park is recognized nationally and internationally for the annual visitation of different species of cetaceans such as the humpback whale, pilot whale, bryde whale, fake killer whales; Plus three resident species of dolphins including bottlenose dolphins, spotted dolphins, and spinner dolphins, as well as several species of sea turtles - hawksbill turtle, green turtle, parrot turtle." Our mountain has a wonderful waterfall called Cascada Verde about 500m down the road. The restaurant and bar at Cascada Verde have a friendly staff, excellent seafood tacos. The town of Uvita is flourishing with restaurants for every budget, from fine dining to modest family places (called "sodas") offering excellent seafood (of course) and typical Costa Rican fare. Uvita has many bars, groceries, surf shops, clothing stores, souvenir shops and tour operators. We have several bank branches, pharmacies, doctor and dentist offices. Major car rental agencies are here, plus a new police station, new bus station, and is just 45 minutes from two regional airports (one North, one South) and 20 minutes to the regional hospital. There is so much to do in the area. We have prepared a folder of activities and maps for you and have more information in the Balcón Ballena Guest Guide. Our site manager, Loren, can recommend many activities and has been known to find good discounts for Balcón Ballena guests on various excursions in the area.
  • We had a really good time in this beautiful house from Mike & Eva. The view is amazing and the house is lovely. The house was clean, good air conditioning/fans and a lot of towels. Mike and the landlord Loren in Costa Rica gave us a lot of information about activities and good restaurants. We saw a lot of animals around the house. The last day of our visit we saw 8 monkeys passing by and 12 beautiful toucans. It was a nice goodbye! Thanks a lot! I really recommend this nice house with amazing infinity pool and friendly host!

    Carlijn2017-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location! Central to everything in Uvita and not to far to Dominical but the location is also private because of where it sits on the mountain. The view is amazing! Oh and a group of Toucans visited us every morning which was super cool. The pool was also very refreshing with a great view of the "The Whales Tale" Over all Mike and Eva's casa was very comfortable and cozy with nice finishes, we can't wait to return again some day!

    Joi2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Das Haus ist Supertoll. Die Lage und die Aussicht, perfekt! Es ist sehr gut Ausgestattet, es fehlt an nichts. Supersauber. Wir haben hier mehr Tiere gesehen als auf unserer kleinen-Rundreise und das bequem vom Pool aus. Ein Dank an Loren für seine freundliche Hilsfbereitschaft. Auch Mike und Eve sind immer Erreichbar um zu helfen, sollte man Hilfe brauchen. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!!!

    Heidi &Thomas2017-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mike and Eva's place was nice and clean. We had a really smooth and easy check-in communicating with their property manager Loren who was incredibly nice and helpful during our stay. However, we felt the property was overpriced. Make sure you have 4x4 if you plan on staying there, the road is really steep and sketchy!

  • Our stay at Greg's beautiful property was awesome. The property is as pictured and so welcoming , as is Greg. The quality of the construction of the house and pool area is superior to all other properties we have seen. Greg was not only a gracious host in helping us with our every needs, he is a master craftsmen as the villa and all the beautiful wood cabinets and furniture were designed and built by him! We felt very secure behind the locked gates. Wifi and TV had good reception, but don't stay inside, go outside and enjoy the pool, the beach and Sodas, all within walking distance! I highly recommend this property!!

  • Sehr sauber, hat alles bestens geklappt. Als das Gas fertig war und einmal das Internet ausgefallen ist, hat Greg superschnell reagiert. Die Küche ist super ausgerüstet, super Kühlschrank und super Grill. Einziger sehr kleiner Minus Punkt sind die Wein/Getränke Becher aus Hartplastik, Glas wäre in dem Preis Segment Wünschenswert. Ich würde die Unterkunft jedenfalls weiter empfehlen und auch selber wieder buchen. Liebe Grüsse Kris

  • Location was great. Walking distance to the Whales tail beach and close to restaurants and many activities such as whale watching, kayaking and many other great beaches that were just a short away. Some great restaurants and convenient grocery shopping. The Saturday Farmers market was great, everyone was vet friendly and we always felt safe. The pool and gardens were lovely and we enjoyed just hanging around the Villa. All and all, we had a great time and would definitely consider coming back.

Nestled in a verdant mountain range overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this luxurious rental opens right up into the tops of the trees, providing spectacular views from every point in the house. Whether you're soaking in the outdoor pool, fixing a mojito in the gourmet kitchen, or relaxing on the wraparound deck, you'll be greeted by ocean breezes and the pristine natural beauty of Central America at every turn.

Designed with an open floor plan, the gourmet kitchen and living room are lined with windows with panoramic views of the jungle and ocean, which fold open accordion-style to allow the breeze and sounds of the jungle to waft through as you fix dinner or watch a movie on the flatscreen TV. Free WiFi is also provided for your convenience! Outside, a well-furnished wraparound deck juts out into the forest canopy. Bask in the views and the warm air as you relax in the private pool, suntan on the lounge chairs, or sip your morning coffee at the handcrafted wooden table. There's even an outdoor bathtub made from carved rock for a truly luxurious soak.
    This home is tucked away a short drive from the picturesque village of Uvita and overlooks the hills and beaches of Marino Bellena National Park. The park is home to almost 10 miles of pristine beaches, including the world-famous Whale's Tail, an enormous sandbar that stretches out into the water and surfaces in the shape of a whale's tail at low tide. (You might actually spot some real whales too!) You'll also find great snorkeling and surfing, and the jungle around the home is filled with picture-perfect waterfalls. Combining elegance, comfort, and an unbeatable location, this spectacular rental is guaranteed to take your Costa Rican vacation to another level. Book your reservation today!

    Casa Vista Verde
    Watch the sun set over the spectacular Costa Ballena from our private infinity pool as you listen to the Toucans. Each of the three bedrooms has its own private bathroom as well as fans and A/C. Dine indoors or out. Or, eat at a local restaurant.
    We've thought a lot about comfort and security. We've added a monitored home security system. The property is gated and fenced. Each window and opening has stunning metal work, screens and glass. This allows you to lock the metal doors and close the screens but leave the glass doors open at night so you can continue to enjoy the breezes. We believe in privacy so the Master Suite has its own door separating it from the Great Room. It also opens onto the deck. You'll love the 5-piece bathroom. You can hang your clothing in the closet or the huge wardrobe. And, if you want to be alone, there are two extremely comfortable recliners. The Guest Rooms are on the far side of the Great Room. Each has a private entrance to the pool deck, a queen size bed, desk, wardrobe(s) and a 3-piece bathroom. The Great Room features a dining area as well as a sitting area with a large screen TV. Want to eat outdoors? There is an outdoor kitchen with built-in BBQ and dining area. Relax outdoors in the shade in the sitting area or tan on the recliners. You can wander around the yard and enjoy all the different exotic plants.
    The Costa Ballena is in the lush southern region. Our villa, Quiet Sunset, is in the rain forrest, with chattering monkeys, vivid flowers and colourful birds. Nearby Ojochal boasts several world-class restaurants. Local beaches each have their own special beauty. At low tide you can wonder into sea caves at the closest, Playa Ventanas. There are many activities to chose from including zip-lining, horse-back riding, golfing, in-season whale watching. Waterfalls, small and large, abound. There are all sorts of flora and fauna in Costa Rica. Some, like snakes, can be dangerous. Others are simply lovely to observe. There are 14 species of scorpions, but none are dangerous although their sting will hurt. If you are concerned about possible reactions to stings/bites of any kind, we suggest that you bring your own medication. There is a pharmacy in Uvita at the Dome. And, there is the hospital a little further south at Cortes, just off the highway.
  • Super nice villa, with best views.:) Everything worked perfect here. ..and its even possible to get here without 4x4 car. Really big place for 6 people. Everybody enjoyed it here.

    Frederik2017-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at ‘the villa’ was superb - what a way to spend time in Costa Rica! The property is located on a hillside in the jungle, so we were visited by some form of wildlife every day. Hawks soaring on the thermals every afternoon, monkeys in the distant trees, Tucans right up close, an array of other colourful birds, Iguanas, fireflies and more. Thankfully, mosquitoes were entirely absent. Never having to worry about mosquitoes really did let us relax. The view from the pool and deck is great - you can see the ocean below. Tables are recessed under archways that provide the right amounts of shade later in the day, when the sun starts to come around. Everything seems to have been designed in a way so that you can really soak up the afternoon light, and the sunsets. It is a beautiful house overall. When we were here at sunset, we were always in the pool or having dinner on the deck. Spectacular. Your primary interaction after arrival will be with the managers, Diana and Dave. They live a few minutes down the road (you pass their house every time you return to ‘the villa’, which is convenient). They are warm, welcoming, and extremely helpful. We second the host’s advice to rent a 4x4, by the way. The road to the property requires it, mostly due to steep and rocky sections. This is a new listing, but the house seems to have been well-prepared for guests. All modern conveniences are present, including a TV and Netflix, should you want to do something other than sit in the pool. We especially liked the ability to “choose your security level” - you can sleep with everything open (just screens to keep the bugs out), or lock the screens behind the artistic security iron (which is what we did). If the humidity proves too much, you can close the glass, and run the a/c. We did that only on the first night, when we weren’t acclimatized to the humidity. The closest beach (Ventanas) was a lot of fun, with soft waves and some caves to poke around in. The local area is full of beaches, and at least one waterfall that we checked out to take a break from all that beach time, haha. The locals in the area (we regularly visited the BM grocery shops in Uvita) are helpful and friendly. We did one day-trip to a much more ‘touristy’ area (Manuel Antonio park), and it was well worth the visit. I’d recommend the ‘Quiet Sunset Villa’ to anyone looking for a luxurious out-of resort experience. We like to stay in new places every time we visit a location, but we’d be hard pressed to risk trying anywhere else. We already miss those luxurious days in the jungle, where the pool and the sunset were at the centre of our schedules. Thank you for a great time away from the cold!

    Jason2015-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Words can not express what a perfect experience we had at Quiet Sunset. Dave and Diane made us feel welcome immediately and were very attentive to anything we needed. The house was absolutely stunning! Every morning and evening we enjoyed the Toucans glide into the treetops beyond the pool. One night we even hosted a pair of Spider Monkeys that settled in for sleep. Our kids were never bored with the beautiful swimming pool to play in and the various geckos to play with. The nearby beeches were fun to explore, especially at low tide. We did need reservations to get into restaurants in the evening but it was during the Christmas Holiday and was pretty busy. The food was great everywhere we went though. We took Dave's advice and did the OSA Canopy Zip Line and had the time of our life. The kids loved hanging from the Tarzan swing upside down. We also did a snorkeling trip to Cano Island where we saw Spotted Sting Rays, White Tip Reef Sharks, Turtles and swam in the middle of a school of Jack Fish. The Altura Wildlife Rescue was one of the highlights of our trip. We got up close and personal with baby sloths and and many other exotic animals. The house was the perfect location for all of our adventures. It was about a ten minute drive up a mountain but well worth the bumpy road! The house is new and very clean. We did leave a list of items that would be helpful for future guests, such as a baking sheet for french bread or grill accessories. The hosts were very receptive to any feedback. We would come back to this house in a heartbeat. I already miss having breakfast and dinner on the patio next to the pool and listening to the Laughing Falcons "talk" to each other in the distance. Quiet Sunset helped make our holiday vacation a soaring success! Thank you so much!

    Amy2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Ask owner for past break ins and measurements she has taken.

    Jose2017-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Deb's home was everything and more that we were looking for out of our vacation to CR. The pictures do not do it justice! It is located in the mountains, surrounded by the jungle with an amazing ocean view. We spent our mornings eating breakfast on the patio and watching the monkeys play in the trees, and the pool was great after a long day of hiking. A couple of things I thought were great - The house is secured by bars on all of the windows and doors so you can leave only the screens closed for a nice breeze without worrying, and the home has a water filtration system so it is safe to drink. There are almost no neighbors so it is quiet and peaceful, but there is food and activities all within a 5-15 minute drive. The wifi and cable worked perfectly- if you need either! A 4x4 is definitely necessary for the ride up the mountain, but not from the airport. Deb was wonderful to connect with, available by phone and email to answer all of our questions before and after we arrived and make sure we were settled when we arrived. There is a couple down the road, Diana and Dave, who live in CR full time and work with Deb and are there for assistance. They were so great to us, available by phone and to greet us and show us to the home when we arrived late on NYE. They even stayed on the phone with us as we got close to make sure we didn't get lost. Everything about this rental and the people involved was seamless and we will surely be back if they will have us!

    Elysha2016-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the most beautiful houses we have rented in Costa Rica, and we have been there 11 times before. It is new, well designed, clean, and well equipped. The house was much nicer than i expected from the pictures, and so i was very pleasantly surprised. The view is incredible, and one could happily spend every day relaxing by the pool, reading, walking and watching beautiful sunsets. We saw howler monkeys and spider monkeys frequently, an ocelot and an armadillo sort of creature one night, and toucan's and many other birds every day. The house is a little difficult to find, but there is a lovely couple that manages the house and helps with directions and everything else! Due to complications with travel, they even invited us to stay at their house one evening!!! Ojachal is a beautiful, less developed area and yet there is a lot to do here. We always go on a riding trip to Nauyuca waterfalls. We went to four different beaches, each with their own merits. My son surfed every day, and we found equipment for him easily. We also went out to several excellent restaurants, some with amazing fish and views, others with excellent french food. There are many French Canadians living in the area. The only drawback seems to be that theft in the area seems to be on the rise, and we did feel a little less safe on this trip than in years past. But the house was very secure and one just needs to be vigilant with their things. We will hopefully come back to this home, and this area many times in the future!

    Suzanne2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is stunning. Deb is very responsive and Dave and Diana (the property managers) were awesome!

    Doug2016-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Maison parfaite! Autant les pièces sont grandes et bien éclairées; équipement de cuisine complet; nous avons adoré finir nos journées au bord de la piscine avec vue sur le coucher de soleil sur la mer. Dave et Diana ont été d'une grande aide. Seul truc: louez un 4X4 pour accéder aux maisons de cette région, toutes en montagne. Merci! Perfect house! Everything we needed was there. We just loved to finish our days by the pool and the sunset. Deb, Dave and Diana were very helpful. One thing: you need a 4X4 to get there!

    Yasmin2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful. My girlfriend and I loved it because it's secluded, we had a kitchen, the pool is perfect even though it's by the beach. The hostel and our Airbnb hosts helped us with questions we had and everyone was super friendly. Definitely a couples place! It's cool to wake up to hearing the little animals and the natural sounds. Fair warning, if you don't have a car then going to get groceries will be a hassle, but you can get a chicken burrito at the hostel next door! Definitely would come again :)

  • We spent 3 nights in Arboura at the end of our 2 weeks trip in Costa Rica. Great concept, we had our own little home in the nature, 5 mins from the beach (Parque Marino Ballenas). A very nice impression to sleep in the trees. One small inconvenient though, lacking a bit of privacy. Nice people, thanks a lot to have let us the longboard to try this activity, and really good to have the fresh swimming pool to relax after a warm day at the beach. For all touristic and transports indications, the team relies on Flutterby House next door. We strongly recommend.

    Clément2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle and David are great hosts, we were wonderfully welcomed and they were attentive to all our requests. The place is a real paradise, very close to the Marino Ballena park. The hut is very clean and inviting and it is a real experience to live for a few days to be in the middle of the jungle. We highly recommend! Hoping to come back someday.

  • La amabilidad de Tina anfitriona constante, la explicación de uso de la casa, acceso en carretera en muy buen estado , el lugar muy seguro y privacidad, todo se confabula para unos vacaciones de sueño...

    Melania2016-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Todo muy bien. Un lugar precioso con una vista espectacular. Lo único que deben corregir es el aire acondicionado de la habitación principal.

    Iván2016-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Tout est très bien, la piscine et la vue sont incroyables!

    Pascale2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing stay at Tina's Luxury Villa! My friend Mila and I stayed here a few days before a music festival called Envision that was only a few minutes away which was great. Might stay here again during the festival next year! Gorgeous view, great sunsets every night! The infinity pool is shared so we made friends with our neighbors but was still able to get away in our house or on the upper porch. Can't imagine why anyone wouldn't love this villa! Definitely great for anyone, your family, just you and your partner, or a group of friends. Pura Vida!

    Eric2017-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • ¡La casa tiene una vista espectacular! Cómoda y elegante. Los tucanes aparecen al atardecer y los congos se escuchan por las mañanas... Muy buena ubicación a pocos minutos en carro del Parque Marino Ballena y otras playas hermosas como Ventanas. Las camas de todos los cuartos son tamaño queen (matrimonial).

  • Tina was very proactive leading up to our vacation, answering questions, providing directions, etc. We had no difficulties finding Villa #2 and it was clean and inviting on arrival. Infinity pool was fabulous, villa had a perfect set up for our 5 adult family. We were enjoying an extended family vacation and another group was staying in Villa #6 so it was nice to be very close to one another but still able to escape to our own place. Headed for the beach or an outing every day even with some major rain. Provisioning was easy. Kitchen was well equipped. A/C worked well. Did not even turn on a television -- no need! Bluetooth music system was great. One slight glitch with the master bedroom shower and Ali was able to fix that in a nanosecond. We will certainly recommend to others!

    J5 jungle luxury villa is an exclusive escape nested in the jungle right next to the famous Whales Tales. Absolutely stunning garden and complete luxury amenity are found throughout this property. Access within walking distance the legendary Whale's tale as well as all restaurants and grocery in Uvita. Salt water pool, wet bar, BBQ and waterfall waiting for you in the garden. Pool area is shared with another 1bdrm villa.
  • This luxury cabina was by far a gem! Everything about it was nothing short of perfect. The home it's self was absolutely spotless, stocked with all the necessities you need including a six burner stove and high-quality cookware. We were able to grill fish on the brand-new barbecue and sit by the crystal clear pool with a waterfall. I would highly recommend anyone staying in Uvita to stay in this private little paradise. Greg was very quick to respond to any needs. What a wonderful way to visit the whales tale town. I would definitely come back to this exact location next time we are in the country. Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality. Pura Vida.

    Leah2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Por cosas de la vida no pude asistir ese fin de semana a Uvita como lo planee, a lo que Greg se comportó muy amable y compresivo, y le permitió a mi hermana, su esposo y mi sobrino ir en nuestro lugar. Ellos la pasaron de maravilla. Gracias Greg.

    Laura2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • House is as beautiful as pictures show, location is brilliant, only a matter of minutes from restaurants, bars and beach. Would deffinetly recommend staying here.

    Phoebe2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fantastic. I would stay again.

    Emil2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Greg is a true asset to the Uvita area. Not only are his properties truly first class in finish and function but he understands what travelers are looking for in a place. He lives the lifestyle down in Uvita so his properties reflect that in the same things that make traveling easier. Also, he responds immediately thru a multitude of channels ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), text, and Airbnb chat) We ran out of propane gas on a Sunday afternoon and he was there 20 mins later to replace. He did this, on Sunday when his staff had the day off. That's true service. Check out his other villas as well. Amazing.

    Sean 2017-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Greg was an amazing communicator. He answered all of my questions quickly and helpfully. He helped in advance with my travel plans from the airport to his lodging which was a huge plus. The apartment was fully stocked - a speaker, a cooler, beach chairs and beach towels, and a full kitchen. The pool is just as beautiful as in the pictures with a swim-up bar and waterfall. We enjoyed the seclusion as well. There are many great restaurants in the area as well. Thanks Greg for a lovely vacation!

    Brenda2017-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Gregs place exceeded my expectations ! The villa was very private, clean and the garden/pool was gorgeous. He left lots of useful information also. The location was perfect for uvita - we walked to the Whale Tail and there are many restaurants & activities within walking distance. Definitely stop here if you're in Uvita

    Elly2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location close to a great coffee shop, grocery store. Spotless, large king size bed , recommended mainly for families with young children. With an amazing pool which our daughter loved it so much, with an a beautiful exotic garden, kitchen well equipped with all the necessary utilities, laundry room which is a must when you have planned a trip to one of the most unique waterfalls: Diamante waterfalls including sleeping in a cave, or a trip t Osa Peninsula. equipped with high security system and excellent and fast communication with the owner. Highly recommended from a family who returned back to Costa Rica fourth time this June, 2017.

    Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Puertocito Point is your cozy private paradise near Playa Dominical. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa also has an additional 2 bedroom guest house and features a 180° wrap around deck to soak in the ocean view and spectacular sunsets. Nestled in 12 ocean-front acres, you will enjoy the relaxing ocean and forest sights and sounds. The house is only 4 miles away from town where you can enjoy great restaurants, spa's , hiking and multiple adventure tours.
    This house is very private and quiet (except for the sounds of the ocean, wind and birds). There is a wonderful ocean breeze that you will enjoy in the open style living area and the grounds, surrounding forest and truly spectacular ocean views will delight you for your entire vacation.
    The house is off the main road between Dominical and Uvita, the two closest towns. Each is a short 10 minute drive. The villa is a short walking distance from a lovely hotel with an excellent restaurant for a nice evening out. There is also a very secluded beach through a rough forest path and takes about 10 minutes to get there. This is a low tide beach so the amount of sand changes throughout the day and year. It is VERY SECLUDED so swim at your own risk. Shoes or strapped sandals are needed to for the walk. There is also a beach only a short two minute drive as is accessible anytime called PUERTO NUEVO BEACH.
  • This is paradise! We extended our initial booked trip because we loved it so much...and still didn't want to leave! The perfect beach getaway, and better than we expected. There were 5 adults and 2 children and we were all comfortable and quite content. the main house is large and open, but has a private master and another bedroom suite. The cabina is located a few steps away and everywhere on the grounds has an amazing view. The beach access is about 20 minutes away and everybody loved it. The trail gets a little steep, but it's worth it. Also, the Cuna del Angel restaurant is just a walk away and so delicious! Dominical is about 10 minute drive. If anybody had something unpleasant to say, which we had to think hard about, was that the occupant is responsible for bringing out all the garbage. Since the drop off is just a few blocks away, it wasn't a real problem. We are already talking about going back!

    Molly2016-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our whole trip was absolutely wonderful thanks to this amazing house. We were created upon arrival and checked up on during our duration of the stay with pointers toward local spots to check out. We had a fantastic time and everything was perfect.

    Pamela2016-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful setting overlooking Pacific and jungle. Sunrises and sunsets plus incredible stars at night. We loved the pool, covered deck with hammock, decks overlooking surf, private beach which was reachable along a well marked trail and open living area in main house. Plenty of wildlife on view. Nice to have a hotel with first class Resturant in walking distance but otherwise very private location within easy drive of Dominical and Uvita and one hour to Manuel Antonio. Plan excursions ahead of time with concierge and host due to nature of hikes and tour services in national parks in Costa Rica. Once in a lifetime vacation!

  • A magical property in a fabulous location with a wonderful host, Yves. Forget the national parks - you'll find more birds on your doorstep! My wife spent quite some time photographing hawks, toucans, humming birds, parrots and tanagers (and lots more). On walks near the house (there's a lovely circular walk which takes about 45 minutes or so) we saw wild pigs, black squirrels, capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys and more varieties of insect than you can imagine including beautiful butterflies. The wildlife was astounding especially as we'd been in Costa Rica for two months when we arrived at Yves', which made it even more incredible just how impressed we were. Whether it's a beer by the infinity pool or coffee on the bedroom balcony watching the sunset over the forest canopy, you'll struggle to find a more tranquil spot. The pool area is a wonderful place for sunset yoga. As mentioned, we've been here for a couple of months now and this is one of only two places we've rented where we've been torn between staying at home all day and exploring the local area. Recommend unreservedly.

    Kieron2017-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house was as described but still much nicer. We really enjoyed staying there and felt like we were in a paradise! The pool was cleaned twice within 5 days! Yves was really nice to us and we were feeling free in everything! After this, we were very spoiled and didn't like our other housing in Costa Rica We would have liked to stay much longer :-( So many thanks to YVES and his wonderful house!!!

    Sara2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first trip to Costa Rica and our first trip together we had an incredible and magical stay at Yves villa in Uvita. We rented the whole villa and found it to be more than expected. Yves welcomed us warmly and help us settle in the first night, during our stay he gave us plenty of space along. If you ever find yourself in Uvita his place is a must stay, a true dream come true. There are toucans in the trees and howler monkeys in the hills; it is a nature lover’s paradise. The villa was clean cozy and relaxing. The view from the room was breathtaking overlooking the pool and ocean. One of the highlights was the kitchen and dining area perfect touch to finish the day off with a romantic dinner. He is a wealth of knowledge which helped us a great deal finding little hidden locations to sight see etc. Yves is such a sweetheart he offered us coconut’s straight from his yard (it was delicious). Our stay at Yves place was definitely the highlight of our trip and we will book again in our upcoming trips to Costa Rica. I recommend Yves and this gorgeous Villa to all!!!

  • This is the most wonderful place to stay! It was super clean, has amazing views, the pool is beautiful and the character of the house is wonderful. The pictures don't do any of it justice - it is better than we expected. I would highly recommend Casa Eko Mar if you are visiting this area.

    Nicole2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Yves is an awesome host and his villa is nothing short of spectacular. We had an amazing stay - the pictures really do not do the place justice. The view is amazing and there are tons of animals all around the property. The house was extremely well stocked and spotlessly cleaned. We highly recommend Yves' villa and will be staying again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

    George2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • As some of the other reviewers have stated, the pictures don't do this property justice! It is truly beautiful and very well maintained. The view is spectacular, and we absolutely loved being able to relax in the infinity pool while watching the sunset. We also appreciated how safe the property was, complete with a gated driveway and security system in the house. Additionally, Yves is a wonderful host and very helpful should you need anything during your stay. We look forward to staying here again during our next trip to Costa Rica

    Located in a huge, colorful tropical garden setting, th Garden Cottage attracts nature lovers, who appreciate its special vibe and peaceful energy. Meditation or yoga on the deck or in the amazing garden, a walk down to the river, watch wildlife or just relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Drive just a few minutes to Uvita or to Costa Ballena's most beautiful beaches. Have a look at the great reviews by our wonderful guests and book this little hidden jewel in Uvita! We would love to welcome you!
    Imagine 5500 sqm (1,35 acres) of lush tropical gardens framed by bamboo and palm trees... colorful ginger plants, orchids and heliconia, ixora, vetiver, hibiscus, bougainvillea, frangipani, bananas, papaya, lime and starfruit trees....big rocks from long, long ago lie scattered in the natural landscape... A highlight and a very unique offer is the jungle trail that goes down to the Rio Morete where you may swim, sunbathe or just relax in absolute privacy. Listen to the sounds of the rainforest, the river and at night the waves from the beaches closeby. This could be YOUR vacation rental: The Garden Cottage. Uvita, with its infrastructure that includes banks, supermarkets, health care and restaurants is only one mile away. Add another mile and a half and you are at one of the finest beaches in the area, the famous Whale's Tail. A rental car is highly recommended for your activities. Plenty of sports and excursion activities can be booked in Uvita. In addition, you will reach the bustling top surf spot Dominical with a 15 min drive. So you are able to have it all: the tranquility of nature (the Garden Cottage is located on a very small dead end side street and a little up the mountain and in the jungle), your private spot on the river to cool off, the sounds and wildlife of the rainforest, as well as an active, but still laid back small town experience and beach life and sports galore. Choose what suits you best each day! The Garden Cottage is designed to accommodate 2 persons comfortably. On 50 sqm (538 sq ft, incl. deck) you will find everything necessary for an awesome Costa Rican vacation: the open inside features a queen size bed on one side and the kitchen and lounge area on the other. Closet, toilet and shower are separated. Sliding doors lead to the deck, which is equipped with lounge chairs and a hammock. From here you have a splendid garden, river and rainforest view and may watch toucans, oropendulas, red and green parrots, colourful butterflies and humming birds and even the occasional group of monkeys, who would like to welcome you. The unmistakable sounds of howler monkeys will wake you up in the mornings :D The Garden Cottage features: wireless internet, air condition, ceiling fan, full kitchen (plates, cutlery, pans, basic condiments, gas stovetop, coffee maker, blender, fridge), safe deposit box, parking. Included is the supply of linens, towels (please bring your own beach towels), toilet paper, hand soap and cleaning amenities. You can use the washer at the owners' house for a small donation to a local animal rescue. You are invited to join us in our efforts to conserve natural resources by an economical use of water, electricity and chemicals. Also the house is non smoking, but of course you may smoke outside.
    The Garden Cottage is located in the Jardines de Morete area, a little outside of Uvita. This is an upscale, tranquil and green neighborhood next to the Morete river and bordering the jungle. The property only has one direct neighbour and offers spectacular scenery, an amazing tropical garden with exotic plants, the chance to see wildlife and, most of all, peace, quiet relaxation and a good vibe!
  • Mona was a great host. Lots of good information was provided, she even told me about a local festival. Beautiful property, very secure. Would stay here again.

    Matt2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible spot. Represented very well by posted pictures. Such beautiful gardens, so lovingly tended by Mona. A path off the garden takes you to the river, a perfect way to cool the body and watch brightly colored birds at the same time. The porch of the cottage was a perfect place for long views of the jungle, for watching the monkey and birdlife happening in the canopy. She was a fantastic host, offering beach recommendations and complete peace and quiet. I really enjoyed meeting Mona and felt so comfortable traveling solo with her as my host. I can only hope this place doesn't become constantly booked. I plan on returning! Thank you Mona, Mike and Pinto. I am so glad I met you!

    Eleanor2014-01-03T00:00:00Z

  • We spend our marriage anniversary at Mona and Mike. It was incredibly beautiful. The place is quiet and relaxing. The cottage has everything you need. It is very clean. The interior of the cottage is tastefully arranged. Mona offered us delicious Costa Rican Welcome Fruits. Check-in and check-out very convenient. It was very easy to communicate with Mona. She has great tips about good restaurants, beaches and when to start your day in CR. We learnt to start the day very early to avoid the heat. Would absolutely recommend the cottage and the host!!!

    Meli2017-04-22T00:00:00Z

  • Mona and Mike's location is an amazing jewel in the jungle. The impeccable landscape and privacy of this location is beyond description. If you are a lover of nature, I want to feel as if you are on your own private oasis, with beautiful plants bird life and butterflies all around you, this is your place. The Cabina has everything you need for your stay, but most likely you're going to want to hang out in the Hammock on your porch, having coffee with fresh fruit provided by your hostess. Mona's recommendations on what to do, where to go, and when, were spot on. She and Mike and more than accommodating and make you feel right at home.

    Lisa2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is such a lovely oasis. Mona is absolutely amazing as well. I loved waking up to the sounds of nature daily. We are so happy we found this place and stayed there. Thanks Mona!!! :)

    Jen2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really great time in Monas Garden cottage! She is a great host and everything was as described and very clean! Supermarkets, Restaurants and beaches are very close, the Garden cottage is very calm and perfect to relax. There is also everything available, if you want to cook for yourself. Next Time we would Stay longer!

    A small paradise, a private place to simply be happy. Located in the region where the mountains come closest to the beloved Pacific, this beautiful 3 bedroom ocean view sanctuary is on 3 private acres surrounded by tropical rain forest. Located a short walk to the beach and 5 minute drive to the fun surf of Playa Hermosa, this gorgeous home will provide you with the ultimate location for experiencing all the beauty and adventure that the Southern Zone of Costa Rica has to offer.
    Offering a spacious open floor plan, generous bedrooms and bathrooms as well as an indulgent outdoor lounge area, the tranquility and comfort offered by the home truly encompasses the Pure Life. In the early mornings you will see a variety of birds in the jungle, including Toucans in the surrounding trees, and if you're lucky you may even see a pair of Scarlet Macaws. It is not uncommon to have White Face Monkeys come into the bamboo right next to the house and although often hard to spot, you will hear the Howler Monkeys coming through the wildlife corridor beside the house in the morning.
    The home is on a quiet ocean view road with only 5 neighboring homes, providing the utmost of privacy, and there are lovely waterfalls in the neighborhood. The house is conveniently located between Uvita and Dominical, a ten minute drive to either town. Uvita holds a number of restaurants, services and activities and is home to the Marino Ballena National Park, where one can see the annual migration of Humpback whales for breeding, snorkel the reef near the Whales Tail, or enjoy the bio luminous in the evening . Dominical is a world class surfing destination and offers shopping and dining options, as well as a spa. Within a short drive, you can explore the incredible caves at Playa Ventanas, witness the amazing turtle releases at Playa Tortuga, or take advantage of the wonderful dive and snorkeling tours available out to Cano Island, which you can actually see from the home. Zip lining through the jungle or rappelling down a waterfall are unbeatable thrills to enjoy. Surf lessons are plentiful for all levels. There are many magnificent beaches and amazing waterfalls, including the stunning Nauyaca, in the area to venture to, as well as great restaurants and fun nightlife to enjoy!

They even helped us massively when we were unfortunate enough to get a flat tyre. They know Uvita/Bahia very well and are able to organise tours and suggest great places to eat. Pili offered to make us breakfast and also made a lively cake ! The location is great for Uvita beach and Ballena National park.

  • This is a very special and beautiful house with wonderful owners. When we arrived in the eventing they showed us the house with the words: mi casa es su casa and even offered us a warm meal. Pilar and Huy helped us with all the information we needed. Within 10 minutes Pilar arranged a trip " whale spotting" for the next morning. She made a wonderful breakfast and provided us with extra towels for the boattrip. We were picked up at the house and had a perfect morning. We spotten some whales and a turtle ! Pilar and Huy like to help you with pleasure. Good bed, bathroom of your own. The living room, kitchen and tv room are shared spaces. They speak spanish, english and french. The Bahia Ballena and the beach are beautiful. For a few dollars you can get a taxi to the little village or a restaurant.

  • Si vous cherchez un endroit paisible et un accueil chaleureux , casa bali verde est parfait. Nous y avons serjourné 1 mois, la maison est très agréable et parfaitement entretenue. Grace à l'accueil plus qu attentif de huy et pili nous avons pu profiter des meilleures adresses pour nos sorties...pêche, ballade à cheval, visite de cascades et restos sympa. le confort est optimum avec une grande cuisine aménagée, la literie est confortable et le grand plus est l'accueil et les échanges avec les propriétaires qui nous ont parfaitement renseigné pour nous permettre de passer un sejour inoubliable. Je recommande ce logement sans réserves.

  • Para nosotros fue excelente, la vivienda bella y todo muy limpio y ordenado, siempre nos guiaron sobre los lugares a visitar, así como los desayunos y cenas que nos ofrecieron sumamente deliciosos y a un precio muy cómodo. En realidad nos hicieron sentir como en casa

  • An amazing week in Uvita thanks to the very warm welcome of Huy and Pilar. Location: it's a perfect base camp to enjoy the pacific coast and beaches. Manuel Antonio national park is at 1 hour drive, beautiful water falls around at 30 mn drive, Puerto Rimenez and Sierpe at 1 hour drive too, and of course the Marino Ballena park at 10 mn walk where you can enjoy all the tours from then, also to Corcovado national park. House: the room and the private bathroom are very cosy and clean. You can enjoy the beauty of the garden while taking breakfast or dinner. Note for privacy, in this Bali style complete opened house, the room has no ceiling and has it's the habit around, no warm water in the shower ;). But this is nice to see how locals live and this is definitely a good thing to keep the house fresh! Hosts: Huy and Piliar are so nice and make you feel at home. Their advices were very helpful, and we could discover some small not touristic spots. If you ask for it, and against few colons, Pilar can prepare you an amazing typical, very well filled Costa Rician breakfast. Better than a 3 stars hotel! :) The top before a long hick or a tour on the boat. You have to stop there for a few days!
