  • The ultimate tropical experience!!

    "We stayed at Casa Amarilla for a few nights and we loved it!! We were traveling with relatives from Canada and Punta Uva was our first stop in Costa Rica. When we arrived and they saw the jungle in the back and that when opening up the doors you could completely connect the indoors with the outdoors they were a bit scared at first but loved it afterwards! At sunset or sunrise it is amazing to stay at the second floor terrace and listen to all the jungle sounds. The beach that is just a few blocks away is gorgeous and on the way to the beach there is also a grocery store where you can find most of what you need for your stay. The house is as nice as you can see in the pictures and is well equipped. We were looking for a house that had the typical caribbean vibe but new and clean and we certainly found it. The only thing we found a bit odd was the first level layout because the bed is in the kitchen area. Maybe a low wall or even having a sofa-bed could add more privacy or disimulate it a bit. But the truth is that at the end of a day at the beach you are do tired that everyone goes to bed at the same time. We look forward to coming back!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ramsgate. Very quiet and peaceful! The condo was better than we had expected and extremely clean. Mike was a pleasure to work with and even shipped back our daughter's "pink poodle" she left behind. We look forward to our next trip!"

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
