“Warm and sunny”
Our family of four (mom,dad, and two adult children) had a wonderful stay at Casa Uvita. The house is bright, open, spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and roomy. The kitchen and adjoining patios are the perfect spot to gather for meals, to enjoy morning coffee, or a glass of wine as the sun sets. Carlos will cook a wonderful breakfast for you and will go out of his way to find wildlife (sloths, monkeys, birds) in the nearby trees for your viewing pleasure. The owner Michele helped us book a fun rafting trip and a wildly successful deep sea fishing trip. She knows the guides personally so we had no concerns about a safe, fun adventure on either trip. One note about the house: it is powered by solar energy. If you go there expecting to have air conditioning, microwave, toaster, hair dryers, etc. you will be disappointed. We were there for five nights and did not miss any of this. The days were warm while we were there but there was a nice breeze and ceiling fans to help cool off the bedrooms for comfortable sleeping at night. This was the sixth property my husband and I rented through this type of vacation site and it was by far the nicest home we have rented. We hope to return for another visit.
“Fabulous secluded house, fun hosts, and a killer view”
My wife and I spent three wonderful days here while traveling through southern Costa Rica. What we loved most was the house's open-air design and its mountainside seclusion. The home was built to capitalize on a stunning ocean view, which you get from the kitchen, outdoor patio, upstairs balconies, and the master bedroom. Michele, the owner, pointed out that she could have added Pacific sunsets to the view but preferred to preserve the towering trees that block the western horizon. Good choice. That kind of preservation-minded development is exactly what we need more of -- especially in paradise destinations like Uvita. With three bedrooms, Casa Uvita was definitely more casa than the two of us needed. But for the price it was great to have such a spacious place to ourselves. The house is brand new, comfortable, and thoughtfully decorated. Michele was an energetic and hands-on host, helping us line up stand-up paddle boarding lessons and making fantastic recommendations on beaches to visit and restaurants to check out. She even agreed to pick up fresh-caught red snapper for us while running errands in nearby Dominical then cooked us a wonderful meal. In exchange she only asked that we provide the head of the fish and any leftover fillets to the men at work on her second house next door. No problem. One of the men, Carlos, is the full-time groundskeeper, handyman, and chef at Casa Uvita. By the time the howler monkeys got around to waking us up each morning, Carlos would already be tip-toeing through the kitchen preparing us strong coffee, platters of fresh fruit, omelets or his signature arepas. I can also vouch for his piña coladas -- killer. Ask Carlos to lead you up the mountain to the waterfall and have a crisp morning swim. Now that's pura vida. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
“Beautiful House in a Nature Lover's Paradise”
As the previous reviewers described, Casa Uvita is an awesome and very safe place to stay for kids. It's a beautiful house located in the jungle just a minutes from waterfalls and gorgeous kid-friendly beaches. Besides a few pigmy kingfishers, cranes, herons, iguanas, and crabs, you will have the beach to yourself. I can go on and on about how Casa Uvita is the perfect getaway but the previous reviewers do a great job doing that already. The most unexpected and most cherished part of our stay at Casa Uvita was getting to know the owner Michele and her housekeeper Carlos. Michele made sure our stay was perfect. She knows all the guides in town, so whether you want to fish, kayak, surf, bird watch or visit a coffee plantation, she will connect with the friendliest locals in Costa Rica. Carlos instantly became a favorite of our kids (two boys, ages 4 and 10). He treated us with the tastiest huevos rancheros in the morning and pina coladas at night. He was eager to search the yard for bugs and frogs with my 10 yr old who felt like he was staying "in a page out of a National Geographic magazine". What impressed me most about Michele was her dedication to keep the landscape of Costa Rica pristine. Casa Uvita is located in the heart of coop dedicated to keeping the primary forest intact. Because of this, the howler monkeys can be heard howling loudly on the mountain where Casa Uvita is nestled; we saw them swinging through the trees on the property on several occasions. The howler monkey population is in serious decline in Costa Rica so it's inspiring to know that Michele is making a tangible, heroic difference to ensure the population stays in Uvita. I am a biologist and I learned more about the critters of the jungle from Michele (who is not a biologist) than from any book or professor in college. Finally, I think the people of Uvita are just great. There is a genuine feeling of caring, community and responsibility for this beautiful slice of paradise.
“Eco-friendly luxury in a tropical paradise!”
Casa Uvita lets you experience the beauty of Costa Rica from the privacy of your own rental home. The house is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest. Enjoy the luxury of a hotel with the ambiance of camping in a rain forest. This eco-friendly home is the perfect place to start your trip to Costa Rica. We spent the mornings hiking directly from Casa Uvita through the rain forest in its backyard. This is an ideal spot for birders and nature enthusiasts alike. In the afternoons we relaxed on the pristine beaches just minutes from the house. National Park Marino Ballena, or Whale's Tail offers you untouched beaches away from all the tourists. Michelle has a wealth of information and knowledge about traveling in Costa Rica. Carlos does a fabulous job of maintaining the property and is an amazing cook! Enjoy!
“Casa Uvita is one of the best deals in Costa Rica, and the most”
Casa Uvita is simply the most beautiful place I've ever stayed in Costa Rica. Accessed by a road from the beach that takes you high up on to a rainforested mountain, the house provides an elegant welcome with floors and ceilings of polished tropical woods, airy, open rooms, stunning tile and granite work, and Latin american art throughout. Giant screened windows bring in soft breezes and give out to spectacular views of the rainforest, animals, and birds on three sides, with a magnificent view of the ocean on the fourth. What's more, you sleep in extremely comfortable beds and enjoy the spacious private bathrooms that also look out in to the forest. The warm Costa Rican service provided by Carlos made our stay very comfortable. I believe that Casa Uvita is one of the best deals in Costa Rica. The quiet and beauty of the place is breathtaking, and it's offered at a bargain price that doesn't match the caliber of the lodging and service provided. You won't be disappointed, other than with the fact that you can't stay there forever.
“We loved this peaceful beautiful home with a view of the ocean -”
We had a wonderful time at this comfortable and beautiful home on the side of a mountain. Well-appointed kitchen - great for cooks. Peaceful surroundings. Lovely 2nd floor porch with view of ocean. Great for bird and monkey watching, and close to excellent beaches.
“The best of Costa Rica”
Costa Rica is about wildlife, mountains, the ocean and outdoor activity. Casa Uvita is the perfect location for all this! Nestled on a mountain on the edge of a primary rainforest, it is just minutes away from the beach. We hiked, bird watched, swam in the river, swam in the ocean, ran along the beautiful beaches, and went whale watching! What more could one ask for? The house itself is luxurious: high ceilings, wooden floors, spacious rooms, tasteful furnishings, a well-equiped kitchen. And the terraces are the perfect place to lounge and read or bird-watch. There's one porch downstairs outside the kitchen (perfect for breakfast), and two upstairs, one of which belongs to the master suite (perfect for star gazing and wine in the evenings!) We spent several of our early mornings and our evenings out on the terraces, watching birds - toucans are regular visitors! Overall, our visit to Casa Uvita was a rejuvenating, invigorating get-away!
