  • Chilling in the Jungle!!

    "The house is fabulous, with wonderful inside/outside flow. Lots of windows and glass doors allows for easy viewing of the surrounding greenery. Decks are very inviting and covered, so you can sit out during the rain. Pool is more functional than it looks in pictures and the back drop of plants and waterfall is gorgeous. Tons of fans, both inside and out, keep the air moving. Super well equipped. Binders with info on the area. All makes this place very homey and comfortable, while feeling private and safe. The road up to the house is a classic 4x4 road and the driveway quite steep. But it is concrete and very doable. Walking the road was our daily, private jungle hike. Saw all kinds of animals. Did not see any snakes, but made sure to stay open roads/trails! Uvita is a great location to spend time and have a more "authentic" experience of Costa Rica. It is right between the central tourist areas to the north and the remoteness of the Osa. Very good amenities such as grocery stores and restaurants. And the jungle pretty much goes from the mountains to the beach, except in town. Which translates to wildlife everywhere. The beaches around Uvita are great for body surfing and boogie boarding. Not the huge waves and strong undertow of the more surfer-oriented beaches like Dominical, Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa, etc. Our favorite was Playa Ballena that was accessed via the Marina Ballena Club. A great perk that comes with the house. Sitting where the jungle meets the beach, plenty of shade and wildlife bursting in the background. Totally awesome. Highly recommend. Wish we stayed there longer!"

  • Great Place, Great Location

    "Thank you Megan for sharing your house and making our vacation so special. The listing and picture were very accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. The property is in a gated comunity and I felt very safe at all times. The neighbors are great and we enjoyed visiting with them in the pool. We love the little beach bar Clarita's, less than a block from the house. Have Megan arrange for a drive for $110 one way from San Jose. We had schedule for a rental car from San Jose to Jaco and much to our surprise, reserving doesnt mean much to most rental agencies. There are rental care agencies in Jaco. So many tell you to shop for groceries in San Jose, but not necessary. There is a large grocery store in Jaco with reasonable prices, I would highly recommend using Megan for setting up your tours, rental cars and your ride from San Jose. She has great connections with the community and was able to book things for us that were not available anywhere else. For things to do: I would recommend off shore fishing. The company we used was Dreamworks with Captain Tom. It was a fishing trip of a lifetime. Me and my husband caught 17 sail fish and one Mahi-Mahi in one day. Captain Tom and his two mates worked very hard to make our day special and they know the waters well. The beach bar cooked our fish for $8.00 per plate with side dishes. It was super yummy! I would also recommend Manuel Antonio, but hire a local guide. Well worth the money."

  • Serenity in Costa Rica

    "Casa Luz de Luna is paradise in the hills. The only thing other than yourselves that can be heard is the chirping of birds and the overflow of the delightful infinity pool. The villa itself is extremely spacious, comfortable and in amazing condition. We made snacks and cooked pretty much every day we were in Costa Rica - which was an absolute treat. The road leading up to the villa is a trip as well! You'll certainly want a 4x4 heading up the twisting steep incline. I have nothing bad to say about our experience we had at the villa or in Malpais. The town itself is fantastic and everyone we spoke to was friendly and generous. We can't wait to come back!! Thank you Soraya for all of your assistance prior to and during our visit! You're awesome and a real gem!"
