Uvita cabin description

Casitas del Rio - 'little houses' on the river. Our 3 individual guest casitas situated in an ideal location, in a unique, private hidden cove along the Morete River, one of the cleanest and most pristine rivers in Costa Rica.

Each of our 3 casitas sleeps 2 people, so we can accommodate up to 6 guests - 2 guests per casita-MAXIMUM.


LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION - only 1 kilometer off the Costanera highway

Our location allows quick and easy access to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and adventures. The small town of Uvita and the lovely beaches of Playa Ballena, Playa Colonia, and Playa Hermosa are a 5 minute drive from your casita. Dominical, the popular surf town with its funky bohemian beach bar vibe, is a 12 minute drive north.

Each casita perfectly accommodates 2 people, and is furnished with a queen bed, dining table for 2, bathroom, and a kitchenette complete with dishes and utensils, a 2 burner stove-top, mini-fridge, microwave oven, toaster, coffeemaker and blender. After stocking up on a few groceries in nearby Uvita, you’ll have everything you need to prepare simple meals.

Outside, surrounded by lush tropical plants, is a beautiful covered porch with a view of the river and forest. Hear the natural sound of the jungle, watch the toucans fly from tree to tree, dip your toes in the cool clean river right in front of your porch, or hike up-river to discover the natural swimming holes and a hidden waterfall.

IMPORTANT NOTE about our posted rates. The rates listed are for 1 casita only, which sleeps 2 adults maximum. If you wish to rent 2 or 3 casitas please multiply accordingly. We do not have cots for additional adults beyond 2 guests per casita.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Our location is near the town of Uvita, situated in a hidden river cove between the Talamanca mountains and the Pacific ocean, 400 Meters East of the Costanera Highway. We are right on the south bank of the Morete River.

                      Our area offers stunning mountain and coastal scenery, adventure tours, hiking, kayaking, zip-lining, whale and dolphin tours, bird-watching, horse- back riding, hidden waterfalls and swimming holes, deserted beaches, surfing, ATV tours, and more! We are 5 minutes away from a small town with restaurants, banks, and grocery stores, yet you feel far away from it all in our private river cove surrounded by primary forest.

                      We highly recommend you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle to reach our accommodation and to explore our area. There are several shuttle and transportation options available to transport you from San Jose to Uvita, where you can pick up your pre-arranged rental vehicle. Or you may drive yourself by rental car from San Jose to Uvita. Find out more detailed 'getting here' information on our website.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2014

                      About the owner: Hello we are Rachel and Steve, your hosts and very proud owners of Casitas Del Rio. Having both retired early (Rachel as an Education and Training Officer and Steve as a Sports and Recreational Manager), we were searching for our next big adventure. We both love meeting new people, hearing their interesting stories and having new experiences. In our personal life and careers we travelled to many places around the world and dreamed of finding the perfect place to settle down and combine our interest in people and nature and own a boutique guest house. Leaving the British Army after 26 years, Steve joined the Australian Army and served 3 years. In preparation for our next move, he then re-trained as a professional butler at The International Butler Academy in the Netherlands. He was then employed at the world renowned Savoy hotel in London as a personal Butler to the rich and famous dealing with Royalty and Hollywood stars from around the world. His professional service as a Butler instilled the high standards expected for ensuring guests receive the service they expect. When looking for the idyllic location to visit or settle in, everything we read about Costa Rica said we should come and explore this amazing eco-friendly country, so we did. After doing a bit of backpacking around and meeting the wonderfully friendly local people, we decided the beautiful Costa Ballena was the most exhilarating, charming, relaxing place we had ever come across.

                      Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                      We enlisted the help of the United Kingdom TV show called ‘A Place in the Sun’ (known as house-hunters International in warmer climates) to find us the place we had dreamed of. The research team combed the area and found the perfect place for us in Casitas Del Rio, just outside Uvita. We bought the place with the 3 gorgeous casitas in a heart-beat. We fell in love with Casitas del Rio, the ‘little houses on the River’ the moment we saw them, and we are sure you will too. It is the perfect get away from it all; peace, quiet and tranquility combined with the soothing sound of the river, yet very conveniently located for all of the amenities

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Wake up and take a coffee on your porch surrounded by beautiful flowers and greenery, watching the river and listening to its hypnotic soothing sound. Enjoy the convenience of feeling secluded, yet only being a 5 minute drive away from the conveniences of Uvita
