Stylish Open Living, Garden Bathroom, Pool & Views

Enjoy privacy with great views, stylish open living and garden bathroom, perfect hideaway for honeymooner and nature lovers.


Built on over 2.5 acres, the large private estate is situated in a quiet pristine setting. It consists of the longhouse, where the owners live, an infinity-pool with Indonesian style gazebo to relax under while overlooking the jungle and ocean, and the orange house, for rental. The buildings are surrounded by a huge tropical garden with lots of native trees, giant bamboo and local fruit trees set close to the rainforest and the Morete River.


Uvita, with its infrastructure that includes banks, supermarkets and restaurants, as well as the beaches and Marino Ballena National Park are only a short distance away by car. To Dominical it is a 9 miles/ 10 min drive by car. One of the most popular national parks of Costa Rica, the Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos is just 37 miles / 1 hour by car away. The property is located with easy access to the main road.


The Orange House is built a short distance from the longhouse.

It was designed to provide privacy for those who want to simplify and eliminate both the physical and psychological clutter in their lives and come back to nature.

The open inside is divided by built in furniture in bedroom, closet, kitchenette and daybed areas. Big sliding doors lead to the porch, which is settled between two big guaba trees, providing an easy interplay between indoors and outdoors. A lush outdoor garden bathroom invites the guests to experience a shower under the stars and emphasizes the open living character of the house.

The floors are made of stained polished concrete. Straight clear lines, minimalism of furniture and decoration invites the resident to enjoy the spirit of the tropical outside, surrounded by a simple inside design.

A sophisticated ventilation system of wood shutters and roof ventilation use the natural air flow to dispense with need for air-conditioning.


The pool area is located beside the longhouse and consists of a 3 x 11 m large infinity pool with waterfall shower from a bamboo pole and an Indonesian style gazebo to relax under. The pool will be exclusively for you to use during your stay.

From the pool area you will experience a breathtaking view of the surrounding jungle of the "fila costeña", the coastal mountain range that rises to over 3000 feet above the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.


1) How far is it to the international airport in San José?

We recommend to rent a car. It is a 124 miles / 3-4 hours drive from the international airport in San José to Uvita. We also recommend to do the drive during daytime. The best route is starting from the airport taking the new highway 27 direction Caldera and then highway 34 via Jaco, Quepos, Dominical to Uvita.

2) How close is the Orange House from the beach?

The nearest beach is Playa Hermosa 1,5 miles from the Orange House.

The famous whalestail beach is approx.3 miles away. All together we are close to 7 different beaches here in the Uvita area. You will need a car to go there.

Very Good

“Little paradis more than nice”

Reviewed 16 Dec 2011

It is the second time in 2011 (first time during Eastern) that I had been at the lovely Orange Guesthouse of Kerstin and Udo! The hosts are of extreme kindness and very pleasant in any context combined with all the guidance, discretion & privacy you might need. The architecture of the Longhouse (owners) and the Orange House are of a rare beauty and are just to be admired once you see them in a phantastic garden and environment with spectacular views in the mountains - especially when foggy clouds and the howlers can be heard. The accessability to the Orange House is more than great and short from the main coastal road without adventure to get lost in the mountains. The area with lovely beaches and other attractions is unbeatable. My favourite time: sit on the terrace (or lay on the daytime coach) - drink a glass of wine - look in the area - listen to the birds - let the soul walk around - be just happy to have had the luck to meet Kerstin & Udo! Do you assume that I would like to come back asap?

“Awesome vacation getaway!”

The Orange House is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. Perfect for a couple who looks for a get-away but at the same time want to have easy access to the main tourist attraction as there are pristine beaches and a variety of adventure tours. I highly recommend.

“Tropical paradise”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2011

Staying at this beautiful and very well maintained house was a relaxing and fun experience. Nature surrounding the house is wonderful, we had the opportunity to see toucans in the property trees as well as a flock of scarlet macaws flying over a huge Guanacaste tree. The nearby beaches and waterfalls, amazing! The owners were very kind and helpful at every moment, they also provide a detailed information folder and maps of the area in the house. Thank you!! We really enjoyed our stay very much.

“Paradise on earth”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2011

The pictures do not do it justice! The Orange House is a modern and extraordinary designed home surrounded by a lush garden in a jungle setting. The natural beauty of the outdoors and the tastefully decorated interior become one. Our mornings were awakened with the sounds of the jungle, Toucans and various exotic birds. Don't miss to go to the beach in the early morning with low tide, it's a spectacular atmosphere and only a few minutes away by car. Relaxing by the infinity pool, relishing the peaceful view to the ocean and jungle mountains was the perfect escape. We will be back!

“Peaceful and perfect escape!”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2011

The studio house was spacious and well equipped, and the sounds of the jungle at night are a real treat. Toucans and parrots fill the air with their sounds each morning and evening. We loved the openness and modern character of the house and especially the garden bathroom is an experience worth having. Kristin and Udo were there anytime we needed. Kind and helpful but not invasive in any way. I will certainly come back as it was really hard to leave. It is definitely one of, if not the nicest place I've stayed in.
