  • Beautiful, fun, and safe for a girls' weekend!

    "We visited Casa Uvita as a group of four girls for three nights in July. As women travelers, we not only enjoyed the beautiful house and beaches, our host and activities, but we also felt very safe and well-cared-for. Casa Uvita is very obviously well-loved and kept immaculately. I have stayed in many rental houses in Costa Rica and none have been in such good condition, from the furniture to the linens and bathroom fixtures to the equipment in the kitchen. Another plus is that there are four full bathrooms, so we could all get ready at the same time! From the house we saw many toucans and heard the howler monkeys every day. Michele or her staff was ALWAYS nearby if we had any questions or needed any help. They arranged an awesome horse ride for us where the horses were brought directly to Casa Uvita and we rode down hills, over boulders, through rivers and streams and mangrove forests, directly down to the whale’s tail! Michele also gave us recommendations for the best beaches to visit (many were deserted except for us!), restaurants, and even brought us fresh-made tortillas one night! Most evenings, we had drinks on the beautiful patio at the house and cooked dinners for ourselves in the well-equipped kitchen. We did our shopping at a very nice grocery store right at the bottom of the hill. There were also lots of board games and movies to entertain us in the evenings. As women travelers, we were looking for something peaceful, beautiful, off the beaten-track, and above all, safe. We found many vacation houses advertised in the Uvita area during our dates, but only Michele at Casa Uvita could assure us someone would be on the property at all times, 24/7, to help us and to be there in case of an emergency. Costa Rica is certainly not dangerous, but as women travelers, it’s best to take precautions to be safe! I hope to return to Casa Uvita again soon as there are many more activities we didn’t have time for: waterfall hikes, surfing, and exploring more beaches and restaurants!"

  • la casa tierra

    "We stayed in this home for one week and we really liked it. With two young kids (4 and 5 years old) there were lots of things to do. The home is very lovely designed and you can feel the warm athmosphere everywhere. It`s a wounderful place on one hand to relax and to come down and on the other hand to have lots of fun with two little discoverer."

  • Wounderful jungle location

    "We spent three weeks in this wonderful hose with our 7 year old son. On spot we discovered quickly that reality beats the pictures of the house and the surroundings. The quality, the cleaning ness, the support from the staff around the house, from Michael the owner, Massi the property manager and the girls responsible for the cleaning and care taking was excellent and a lot more than we expected. So when we needed some support for some small issues with the pool the response was The garden is a true animal paradise with monkeys, every bird you can imagine from toucans to hummingbirds and a huge range of butterfly's. Compared to to the properties in Uvita the price is low and rank the value for money a lot higher after renting houses there as well. For us the location was excellent, 10 min to one of the most beautiful beaches, cinco ventanas, 20 min. to the big supermarket in Uvita and 10 min to a lot of good restaurants in Ojochal. So if you are looking for a nice place in the middle of the jungle and still with a close access to beaches and the civilization this is the place. ¡Pura vida! Los Andreasson's"

  • Simply Amazing!

    "INCREDIBLE VILLA! I would be remiss to not first mention the greatest aspect of this villa, the VIEW! The pictures simply cannot do justice to the view you will see from each floor of this villa. The villa overlooks Manuel Antonio National park which includes the an amazing ocean view. It is breathtaking, awe inspiring and truly something you can hardly believe you’re looking at. We stayed at Villa Manuel Antonio for the first week of April and everyday since our return home my family wakes up wishing we were there. The villa is very spacious, clean, and perfect for large and small groups. We stayed with a group of 25 people including 7 children. The main house and two of the condos below fit us perfectly. The Villa is perfectly located with plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The beach, national park, and Quepos are a short taxi drive away. If you plan to walk to the beach it’s about a 15-20 minute hike, but with the great views and beautiful area, it’s worth the walk. A couple from our group spotted a sloth scaling a wall on their hike and was able to stand just a few feet from it. The villa also has a nice pool and comfortable air-conditioned rooms. The daily maid and laundry service are definitely a bonus if you packed light. Lorenzo, the owner, is a larger than life character. His hospitality, charm and service were better than we could have imagined. He always has a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. Not only did he arrange for our transportation to pick us up from the airport, but he also helped us plan our day trips, buy groceries, and answered all of our random questions. On top of all that, he helped us through the whole process of planning our wedding (held on the property), from the catering, to the music, to taking great pictures for us during our wedding! To add to our great vacation were the monkeys we saw at the villa every morning…they were truly unforgettable. You’ll be able to see them mainly in the mornings and evenings when is not so hot. They come close to you and you can watch them play around the patio. My only advice would be make sure you close the front door because monkeys love to swoop in and take unattended fruit (which is amazing too by the way!). I highly recommend Lorenzo’s villa to anyone that is looking for a comfortable, family friendly place, and wants to just relax and have a good time!"
