Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Looking for that perfect romantic gateway on the beach? The Robinson Beach Bungalow may just be the right choice for you. Located near a private cove on Punta Uva beach, guests will enjoy snorkeling, surfing or just plain relaxing. This is a petite 2 bedroom 1 bathroom newly renovated house, outfitted with with quality amenities and comforts. Take just a few steps from your private bungalow and enjoy the warm. turquoise Caribbean waters or relax under a coconut palm in your hammock by the beach.

Punta Uva also offers kayaking, surfing and swimming. Nearby surfing is just a few hundred yards away on Playa Grande and an exciting hike up the bluff just 50 yards away will take you onto a trail that highlights massive century old trees, all sorts of wildlife, a hidden tunnel going through a cave and a viewpoint of the entire coastline to the North and South.

Just another 100 yards in the other direction from the house is a local bar and restaurant, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on the beach - with seafood specialties highly recommended.

Guests can rent a car - but when staying at The Robinson Beach Bungalow, one is not necessary. We can arrange bike or moped rentals to get around - but you'll see that most of your time will be kept in the vicinity of the house.

The house has two bedrooms, each with a window to the yard and one with its own AC unit. Closets with plenty of hanging space and shelves. The house has a safe with lock and code for safekeeping, large enough to house a laptop computer. Ceiling fans in every room. The bathroom is updated with new tiles, plumbed hot water and artistically decorated.

The yard boasts an arrangement of footpaths meandering through a garden filled with exotic tropical plants and fruit trees. A private path through the coconut palms puts you in the water on the beach.

The property is located within the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, where you can arrange a number of outdoor and wildlife activities including guided jungle hikes, horseback riding on the beach or jungle, dolphin tours, fishing, kayaking and many other options.

Too close to public access

  • 3 of 5

Pick up this house and move it to a more private part of the beach, and it would be a perfect getaway. It had everything we needed for a nice stay. But, the nearness to the public beach access was a disappointment and the fact that people seemed to like to gather right in front of this house made it not so nice for our supposed private access. We even had people coming into the planted area just off the beach directly in front of our house to change clothes or relieve themselves. Really not nice.

Owner's Response: Hello Nancy and John! We are really sorry that you had that bad experience. Punta Uva on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is kind of secluded beach usually except in Easter week but that was not your case.

Dream Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week and enjoyed the extremes of weather; sunny, mild and an incredible storm. The bungalow was perfect for both. When it was nice we enjoyed the best beach you can imagine right in front, I mean, just out the door, pick a spot in the shade, under the palms to read, then in for a dip, repeat!! When it stormed we walked a short way around the point where the water was calmer to swim and were able to enjoy the bungalow when the power went out because there were candles and a gas stove to make a memorable dinner. It was windy so the fans weren't missed, quite comfortable.

Another reviewer mentioned the security and I agree it really is like Fort Knox. We never felt in any way like the neighborhood had anything to worry about, but it was nice to swing the big wooden door closed and not have to worry about even the remotest possibility of any hi-jinks.

The other outstanding feature of the property is the property booking and management company. Caribe Sur Rentals and Green Management treated us like we were their most important guests ever and I'm sure that's the way they treat everyone. The bungalow and grounds were clean and presented more like a fine resort than a vacation rental. They are as good at what they do as you could ever expect!

We are a couple in our very senior years and some might say are more picky than we used to be, but we couldn't have been happier with the way we were treated and our stay at Robinson's Beach Bungalow.

A special place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The location is excellent, the area has a multitude of activities and Stephanie with Caribe Sur Rentals was always available before and during our trip to answer questions, help with reservations and make recommendations for restaurants and activities. The house sits behind Punta Uva beach on a beautifully landscaped lot and as noted in another review has all amenities. We took a jungle tour with Abel Bustamante which was exciting, educational and fun, visited the Jaguar Rescue Center in town(private tour recommended) and the Wildlife Rescue Center in Moin, hiked Cahuita National Park and couldnt find a bad restaurant. As always, the incredibly friendly, helpful, gracious Costa Rican people made every day a treasure. As an example, we got lost trying to find the Moin Wildlife Rescue Center and ended up in some industrial complex where a guard who didnt speak English got a guard who did to give us directions. Well, we got lost again and another local person offered to help and was calling the center on his phone for directions when the guard we spoke with pulled up in his pickup truck to make sure we were okay. He had followed to check on us. The only disappointment we had was not being able to snorkel. The water was excellent for swimming and body surfing but too rough for snorkeling. You can check the surf levels at www.surfline.com if interested. So, lots of stuff to do close by and/or relaxing/ reading in a hammock listening to the sound of the water aint bad either.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for two weeks in Feb. 2014. It is just absolutely beautiful. U have continuous hot water in the shower, AC in bedrooms, (I didnt need it), potable water dispenser, (cold water), and streaming wifi. The beds are firm but nice and comfy. The kitchen has all the basics you need. There is an electronic security system and the place locks up like Fort Knox. Anyway, I didnt come for the house, I came for the location. The location is well, TO DIE FOR. OMG!!! It is heaven on earth, thats all I can say. You must explore your immediate surrounding beaches and the jungles. There is so much beauty and wildlife it is unreal. Bring your cameras and binnoculars. Within walking distance from the house is Arrecife Restaurant, which is a great little soda. Its like having a hotel restaurant bar, lol. IT IS WONDERFUL THERE!!!!! I have nothing bad to say about this house. Green Management was more than accommadating, setting up appointments and giving suggestions, etc. It was just a great time and I felt at home.

Map

Punta Uva, where the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge starts. The coast is composed of two bays, separated by Punta Uva point. You will find to the south the district of Arrecife, and to the north a large bay surrounded by jungle vegetation. This is one of the best spots within the region for snorkeling. Don't miss the river kayaking. A small road of about 6 km "Paraíso road", leaves from Punta Uva and crosses the hills to join the road leading to Bribri at the border with Panama.
