About Del Chmielewski

My wife and I have lived in Wisconsin all our lives. I own a CPA firm and love to travel to exotic places. This is our dream retirement home.

Del Chmielewski purchased this house in 2009

Why Del Chmielewski chose Puntarenas

In 2000 a friend recommended that we visit the Uvita Costa Rica area. We fell in love with the area and bought land in 2002. It is the only area on the Pacific Coast where the mountains come right down to the ocean making it the most dramatic landscape. Uvita area has the following amenities: National Park with Whale Watching,200-500ft waterfalls,Best Deep-sea fishing in World,Most eco-diversity in World, Many Americans who live there. I call it the 'Naples of Costa Rica'.

What makes this house unique

The best most expansive (50+ miles) oceanviews in all of Costa Rica as verified by our Internet provider.One of the largest private lots in our development 13.3 acres , which means more privacy for you.

Friendliest , most helpful staff as witnessed by our reviews

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

Why do we rent houses instead of staying in a hotel? Because we kind of hate being pushed around by hotel staff and we kind of hate going out to eat for every meal. So we are a little odd in that we want to take charge of certain aspects of our vacation that normal people want to leave behind. We want to do a little laundry and cook a good meal right? I mean I like to sweep the floor and get the sand out of my space at the end of the day. So that's why we choose VRBO. It's nice to have the comforts of home while you are on vacation. OK so laying that out there, I have one comment about this house to sum up the whole place. This house has sharp cooking knives! That's the level of detail we are talking about here. If your host has the frame of mind to provide excellent cooking knives, you can rest assured that everything else will be provided.

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

Renting this villa is and was one of the best vacation experiences I have been able to share with my family. Can't say enough about the ambience, location and accomodations to make this such a memorable trip. On site support staff was excellent, helpful and available. What a paradise of sight and sound! For those who like being off the beaten path, this is the place to be. All the activity and dining recommendations were spot on. Spectacular sunsets are the norm and the food choices worth a little travel. La Parcela, Hacinda Baru, Marina Bellina, the list goes on for all the things to do. My family is already clamoring for a return trip. I would recommend this property unreservedly! I know reviews like this are hard to believe but all I can say is you have to experience it because some things are hard to put into words. PS. I do have the pictures to prove it!

Owner's Response: Paul, It was a pleasure to share my retirement estate with you and your family. I believe planning a vacation to an unfamiliar destination can be difficult and that is why I personally get so involved in helping my guests to "make it a trip of a lifetime". From offering airport pickup , tour booking, favorite restaurants list, and even renting my car to them. I am constantly working on training my staff to provide the best service as well as constantly adding amenities to my home. Your review is testimony that my hard work as well as my staffs is living up to and exceeding my guests expectations. I look forward to helping you plan your next stay at "Del Congos de Uvita"

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Del Congos de Uvita was fantastic. The 3-bedroom luxury villa provided the prefect Costa Rican experience. The immaculate villa was located in a jungle like setting providing incredible views of the Whale’s Tail. The drive to the villa requires a 4-wheel vehicle, but the drive is well worth the experience. The town, approximately 15 minutes from the villa, provided access to restaurants, beaches, and other small towns. Based on Del’s recommendations, we were able to secure a great rental car and advance book horseback riding to the waterfalls and an ATV tour. If you have time during your stay, I would recommend both. The property managers, Alex and Stephanie were perfect. They were very helpful and assisted with addressing our questions and needs during the stay. This place comes with top recommendations. I hope to return in the near future. Thank you Del, Stephanie, and Alex for the awesome experience.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Del Congos is the perfect spot to enjoy outdoor Costa Rican living. The views are amazing and there is plenty of space for everyone. You must have 4x4, Del will help to make sure you have the right car. The road up is part of the adventure and by the end of your stay you will think nothing of it. Alex and Estefanie will help you with anything you need. Del has great pointers and suggestions for dining and activities. Uvita is a great central location for visiting all of the local beaches and towns.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. We loved the outdoor patio area and pool. Hanging out at the pool every night after a day at the beach or a full day of activities was lots of fun. The view of the whale's tail was really nice. We loved seeing the toucan every day that seemed to call the surrounding jungle home. We also saw numerous birds and a coatimundi. We didn't see any monkeys, but we could hear the howler monkeys in the trees.

The drive up to the house was a little rough, but not unlike most other places in Costa Rica. If you've ever driven there, you should be used to it.

The groundskeeper and his wife were very friendly and willing to help with everything we needed. We couldn't get the television to work through the computer, but it was no big deal. We weren't there to watch TV anyway.

We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful mountain top vacation home with view!

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with two other couples. The property has three bedrooms and three bathrooms so it is perfect for friends traveling together. The home is very clean. The kitchen is very large and well appointed. We spent a lot of time on the huge patio, which is fully shaded when you need to get out of the tropical sun. We watched toucans and aracaris (medium size toucans) every morning as we enjoyed Costa Rican coffee on the patio. We made good use of the gorgeous infinity pool and its slide. We used the gas grill every night to make dinners with fresh fish bought from the local fish guy (marlin, red snapper, mahi mahi, and shrimp). Nearby excursions included snorkeling, kayaking, ATV riding in the mountains, swimming in waterfalls, and zip lining. We also visited the Manuel Antonio National Park to see sloths, monkeys, birds, etc. Del was very helpful in helping us arrange our excursions with dependable, professional outfitters so we always felt safe. We highly recommend renting Del's vehicle to make it easier to get up the mountain to the property. The local property managers, Alex and Estefanie, are there to make your stay comfortable and answer questions. They work so hard to make your vacation memorable. We definitely recommend this lovely vacation home. We feel like we spent ten days in paradise!
