"Casa Toucan is located in a beautiful canopy. The Toucans flying around, in the morning awakened with the Howler monkeys sounding like King Kong. They were swinging from branch to branch, eating along their way! New experience!!! The lizards in the house were cute chasing the insects on the ceiling. Speaking of insects, there were no mosquitoes, amazing! We had a visit from a hummingbird in the living room. We gently removed him, it chirped when released. I think it was a thank you!!! The layout of the house is spacious and comfortable. The pool was great, fairly hidden from the neighboring house. Since it was warm, it was perfect to jump in at all hours of the day or night! Everything was just perfect. The experience was fabulous, definitely a different type of vacation which I would repeat in a heartbeat."

"The other reviewers have done a much better job than I can ever do of describing the property and the experience. Rarely am I at a loss for words-but put most simply-- it was the best vacation ever! The house alone was enough to make me come back. However, it was the staff that helped make the vacation the best ever. Ana, Roberto and the team roll out the red carpet. We sincerely lacked for nothing the entire time we were there.
Thank you for the chance to stay here and thank you for creating heaven on earth.

An Intimate and Memorable Experience with the Real Costa Rica
"We were looking forward to returning to the Uvita area again this year after visiting just south of there for a shorter time last year. So we booked 2 weeks at this wonderful home. If you want to get close to what Costa Rica is really like, the nature, the ocean views and sunsets, then this is a perfect spot to spend your time. The owners have left the property so very well equipped and there was nothing we could not find when needed over the 2 week period. The view from the patio is as good as anything we have ever seen and the daily visit by Toucans, Hummingbirds and many other colorful birds we can't name was thoroughly enjoyed.
The house opens up into an indoor/outdoor structure that really makes you feel like you are in touch with your surroundings and the property itself is planted and maintained like a garden with a beautiful variety of local plants. You can tell the owners put so much into their design concepts when building this home and it is modern, comfortable and everything works perfectly.
The area offers so much to do. Our highlights were the local beaches, waterfalls, walking the Whale Tail, multiple area farmer's markets and the trip to Cano Island Preserve for Snorkeling and lunch. The trip down the Sierpe River was hard to beat but the snorkeling was surprisingly good and topped off with a visit by a sea turtle as we wound up the day.
Yes the road is a challenge that takes a couple of trips to get used to but with a 4x4 SUV you will soon find it to be nothing difficult to manage if you are at all comfortable off blacktop. Highly recommended and promises to be a very unique and memorable Costa Rican experience."

"This zen little getaway is perfectly secluded high in the mountainous rainforest. It was so relaxing and romantic to feel like the only two people in the world. The constant buzz of cicadas and cries of birds of prey played the perfect soundtrack for ambient white noise. I can't imagine a better backdrop to recharge one's body, mind and soul than the dramatic sunsets with a 360 view from the mountains to the Pacific. It was so obvious that Paula and Marty care deeply about their guests and their chosen home, down to each exquisite detail and the gracious hospitality we were shown."
