YOU MUST TENT A 4x4 VEHICLE TO GET UP THE MOUNTAIN TO OUR HOUSE. You do NOT have to rent a Jeep or even a large SUV. Costa Rica 4x4's come in all sizes.
Due to the height of the house and decks sitting 2 and 3 stories above the jungle floor, we DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN to stay in this home. We define 'children' as anyone under 18 years old. You are escorted up to the house upon arrival in Uvita. If there are children in your party, our manager will have to refuse access. We only have this rule for the safety of people who would be vulnerable to accidents. Thanks so much for understanding.
First of all, if you have never been to Costa Rica, please read this paragraph. Costa Rica is one of the most gorgeous places in the Western Hemisphere. However, it is NOT the U.S. or Canada. Things don't happen fast in C.R. Your priorities will not be shared by the local people. They live very simply and very happily. There are no fast food restaurants or 1 hr. service for anything in Uvita. The service is good, but not fast. The country and it's people are not driven by technology or electronics. They do not depend upon their wireless devices as we do. They are still considered a third world country. If you can understand all that, you will have the time of your life. But you must remember that you are not in your own country and you need to trade some conveniences and rapid service for awe. Don't try to put your Gringo expectations on the Ticos. It will only stress you out.
You MUST rent a 4x4 vehicle with a low gear in order to maneuver the road up the mountain. There is no getting around it. There are many, many sizes and types of 4x4's to rent in Costa Rica....most you have never even heard of before. MAKE SURE the car rental staff shows you how to operate in the lower gears...and how to put the vehicle in and out of the lower gears.
Cool, breezy, charming two bedroom/two bath home built three stories above the jungle floor. Can sleep 5 very comfortably by utilizing the inflatable bed.
Wrap around deck, walk in pool with waterfall, huge rancho, wildlife galore, gorgeous garden with papaya, mango and citrus trees. The most relaxed and interesting place you will ever stay in Costa Rica. Amenities include cable TV, Internet, a/c in the lower bedroom (if needed), complete kitchen with all appliances, dishes and cooking utensils, linens and towels, indoor shower, two outdoor showers. I have many photos to send and detailed information about the house and all the activities offered in our little town of Uvita, which is a beautiful 3.5 hr. drive from San Jose, down the Pacific coastline. The house is 1300 feet above sea level, overlooking the ocean and set in the rain forest. Two species of monkeys, incredible birds (including toucans and macaws), Coati mundi, kinkajous, jaguarundis and sloths are just a few of the animals that have been observed on the property. The deck provides a 300 degree view of the jungle and the Pacific ocean, and you will probably want to spend most of your time there, perched 3 stories above the rain forest floor.
Tours in the area include an amazing ATV company that takes you on a 25 mile ride high in the mountains (over 3000 ft.) and a visit to a 300 ft. waterfall...one of the top two best zip lines in the country that also offers a Tarzan swing and a Superman swing, both amazing...snorkel and whale watching tours out to Cano Island, which you can see from our house...bicycle tours....deep sea fishing...surf lessons....hiking...repelling....kayak tours and so many more activities. You are just two miles from the famous Bahia Ballena beach, also known as the Whales Tail...look it up on Google images. There are many, many beaches to access in the area. The town of Dominical, known as one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica is just 15 miles from our house.
After reading our entire listing and viewing the photos, please email me and I will send a wealth of information and lots more photos about the house and all the features of this part of Costa Rica. We will partner with you in finding all the tours, excursions and adventures that are tailored for your particular style. We will stay in touch with you from the time you book with us, all the way until you check out of the house, answering any questions you might have.
Looking forward to getting to know you and meeting your needs for the vacation of your dreams.
We can customize your payments for your convenience. In some cases, we can accept the 2nd payment (remaining balance) at the time of check in IF we have agreed upon this arrangement beforehand.
