About the Property
Owner's Home...Modern A/C Cabin w/King Sized Bed
The 'Owner's Cabin' is not always Rentable, but the owner lives in the USA and enjoys traveling. It is a separate building from the actual Toucan Stay Inn (TSI) Our "Petite To Be in a Garden by the Sea". It is Very Private, Gated and Surrounded with colorful 10 foot tall Hibiscus hedges and 8' Wooden Gates. Besides being on a gorgeous tropical setting, filled with flowers, bushes and Coconut Palms, the TSI is proud to be on the "BeachSide"…just 3 lots from the Caribbean Sea. Unlike most of our competition, we have Air Conditioning, Screened window and large Screened Patio,, WI-FI and Satellite TV. As of matter of fact, we have A/C in all the Inn's accommodations.
The Owner's Cabin has Cathedral Ceilings, a variety of Local Wood Accents and Furniture, a Custom Made California King Sized Bed, True Quality Bedding (real mattresses) and Linens, a Living Room area, Dining Table, Fully Equipped Kitchen, Private Bathroom, Satellite TV/Stereo DVD, Flat Screened TV, Screened in Patio with Table and Chairs, 2 hammocks and a massage table. (see photos)
The Toucan Stay Inn (TSI) is merely steps away from Playa Punta Uva... rated one of the 'Top 10 Natural Beaches in the World' (says Outsider Magazine). Punta means 'Point' there are two sides to it. Each side is completely different. Our side is called the 'family beach' has been awarded a BLUE FLAG for it's cleanliness and safety. The other side is completely different, and my wife and I love to hang hammocks among the palm trees, bring a cooler with lunch and drinks, books and snorkeling spend the day. Muy Tranquilo!!! (Very Tranquil!!!)
The Toucan Stay Inn is conveniently located within a 'stone's throw' of a grocery store, a beach bar/restaurant, and the Punta Uva Dive as a matter of fact, Punta Uva River...a very sleepy river that meets the Caribbean. Kayaks are rented nearby for your convenience.
FREE WiFi is available, along with Free use of Snorkeling equipment, Boogie Boards, Travel Beach Hommocks and Beach Towels, we are happy to offer concierge services for reservations and suggestions for adventures, tours and our list of 'preferred' dining experiences.
Here are some of the popular things our guests enjoy:
Horseback Riding on the Beach, Scuba Diving, Canopy Tours (zip line), White Water Rafting, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Hiking both the Gondoca-Manzanillo Refuge and the Cahuita National Park, Chocolate Tours, Bri Bri Indian Reservation, Waterfalls, the famous Jaguar Wildlife Rescue Center, etc. etc. Several of the tours will pick you up and drop you off right at our doorstep.
I'm not sure if the Garden of Eden was much better, but instead of apples and serpents, we have coconuts, papayas, bananas and an occasional sloth and toucan.
Although the 'Owner's Cabin' has a fully equipped kitchen, Breakfast can be purchased and served on the Inn's Garden Terrace (with advanced notice)
Garden Terrace and the Garden Pavilion are places where our guests can relax, play cards, board games, or just read or leisurely nap in one of our several terrace hammocks or Adirondack Chairs.

Play Punta Uva (our beach) is just a short walk away (actually only 3 lots away). Within 3 miles of us is the Famous Jaguar Rescue Center, Canopy tours(zip line tours), horse back riding, Iguana Sanctuary, Yoga, Surf Lessons etc. I REPEAT...we are only 600 feet way from swimming, kayaking and snorkeling, which are all available at our Beach..."rated in TOP TEN NATURAL BEACHES IN THE WORLD" by Outside Magazine and Travel and Leisure. Our 'Owners Cabin" sits is next to our Toucan Stay Inn. Our manager at the Inn will be happy to assist you with recommendations for restaurants, private beaches, tours, etc.
Our little "paradise" sits between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. Both are places that you should visit. Each with their own Caribbean "vibe".
Year Purchased: 2006
About: I retired from the 'fashion industry'. I've toured Costa Rica back in 1999, but truly fell in love with this area. Don't tell everyone about it, please. My Spanish is not that good yet (really horrible, in fact) but the Caribbean Coast has more English speaking population because 100+ years ago the United Fruit Company that controlled most of the Southern Part of Costa Rica brought labor in from the Caribbean Islands (British Colonies). So, they spoke English. When the company Caribbean people had no way to get the lived off the land and kept it as Natural as they could. than the rest of the due to Jamaican a mixture of Raggae, Salsa, Calypso, along with good old Rock and Roll have advanced through the years. Bob Marley is pretty darn popular. My wife, Mabel (pronounced MaBell) if from Bogota, Colombia and I am from Florida, USA. I couldn't have found a better location to retire. I walk down the path to the beach each morning, with a cup of the best coffee in the world, and end my day with a float on my back and watch sky change colors during the incredible sun set. I walk back to my cottage, pick a lime off one of my many fruit trees, then squeeze it into a tall glass of Flora De Cana (Rum) and Diet Coke. I love to the road to Manzanillo is just gorgeous. Snorkeling the Cove and kayaking either the 'point' (punta) or the sleepy river that meets the beach are two favorite activities. The nightlife in Puerto Viejo (7 miles away) is nice to have, but the privacy, fresh air and total 'comfy' feeling of the Toucan Stay Inn (but 3 can't) is one of the greatest 'pleasures' of my life. I prefer living near the beach and love coming home to our Private, Gated, Garden Setting. Who wants to go from the beach to a small room. So, I built the Toucan Stay Inn and our quaint cabin with all the comforts of home.
Why Punta Uva, Costa Rica:
In my eyes, The Garden of Eden couldn't have been much better. The natural beauty of not just my property, but the entire area is overwhelming to me. On the property we have limes, coconuts, pipas, guanabana, bananas and other fruits with some incredible flowering plants. The place is surrounded by hibiscus 3 sets of wooden entry gates. Two one bedroom air conditioned suites are also available. The variety of SOME OF THE BEST FOOD I'VE EVER EATEN is incredible, with several of them within walking distance and others within a no further than 5 miles on the same main road. Sushi, Thai, Italian, French, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, Argentinian, and of course, Tico (local) food are all offered. I keep a book listing TSI's recommended restaurants, along with menus. A convenience store (PULPERIA) is located within 50 feet of our front door. Now that's convenient! The owners, Saskia and Connie speaks German, English and Spanish. They are both great people who will fix you up with beer, wine, booze and your grocery needs.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
'If you are lucky enough to live near the beach, you are lucky enough' 'Location, location, location' is the most prominent phrase in real estate and that's what makes The Toucan Stay Inn (but 3 can't) special' Location: 200 meters (3 lots away) from the actual Punta Uva Beach. 'One of the Top Ten Wild Beaches in the World'...Outsider Magazine 2001 Privacy: Property is surrounded with fencing covered by natures beauty (hibiscus hedges, vines, coconut and pipa trees etc. Air Conditioning and Ceiling Fans... something hard to no need for mosquito nets. All windows are screened. Hot Water: Something you might take for granted, but not offered everywhere 'Gringo' plumbing: Flush your toilet paper!(sounds wierd? see Hot Water above) Great Mattress: King or Queen Top of the line mattresses ONLY! All the comforts of home: Cabin has full COMPLETE kitchen (Gas oven w/ 4 burner stove, full sized refridge, microwave, toaster over)) Location, privacy, air conditioning, hot water, a great mattress, and the comforts of home in a local setting is what makes the TOUCAN STAY INN (but 3 can't) special'.
