Costa Rica's natural beauty is breathtaking. This home let's you enjoy it from your very own rocking chair.

beautiful slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

the view! the pool! the jungle! all so wonderful.

you will def need a car, and it should certainly have 4wd

great bar/wings spot 5 min down the road (on your way up or down the mountain!)

best part was sitting on the porch in the morning watching the birds (on either level) or swimming in the pool at dusk.. it was hard to leave such an epic spot.

Beautiful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends stay at Casa De Lata for 3-4 nights, and it was stellar! The house was stocked with fresh towels and linens, the pool provided at home relief from the sun and the property was magically lined with tons of fruit trees and coconuts! Fresh mangoes for breakfast (and toucan sightings) and great views of the sun setting over the ocean every night. Make sure you have all wheel drive to get up the road to the house, but what a great quiet getaway as the house is tucked in the hills and away from any other roads. We went with friends, but seems like it would be a lovely place for families and all ages. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Loved Costa Ballena and Casa De Lata

  • 5 of 5

9 days at Casa De Lata for our vacation of four. We hated to leave. Views ,pool, decks and grounds were all we had hoped for and more. From the decks alone I was able to capture fantastic photos of the wildlife and views. Even had the wonderful red eye tree frog climb up our deck for photos. The Costa Ballena area has so much to offer and Casa De Lata is in great location for all of it. Highly recommend the hiking tour with Humberto and his brother at Santa Lucia Falls tours. They will make you feel like family.

For a ride from San Jose to the area for your 4x4 car rental ( a must have ) you will find the best with Erick Campos taxi service. We look forward to returning in the future. special thanks to Tom and Christine for the help in making this all possible.

Wow! Jaw dropping views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Casa de Lata for our vacation with a family of 4. We stayed the entire time at Casa de Lata while we were in the southern zone and what a great decision!

The views from the property were simply breath taking. From every room, deck, veranda there are massive 180 degree views of the coastline, whales tail, ballena islands, and evening sunsets. You can even here the white water crashing on the rocks from the property.

We were visited my howler monkeys, toucans, iguanas, and many many types of tropical birds in a daily basis.

We spent endless days at the huge pool ( we have a 7 and 4 year old) while we picnicked under the pagoda. It was very nice to jump in the pool after a day in the surf.

The house was very conveniently located to all the southern zones best activities. The drive was only 5 minutes to the coast and 10 minutes to our favorite kids beaches and surf. Zip lining at Baru was a 15 minutes drive, deep sea fishing from Ballena beach was a 15 minute drive, and the hip town of Doninical was only 10-15 minute drive away!

We defiantly recommend this hip house to anyone/family and will be returning soon!!!

Super steal at the price!!

Pura Vida!!!!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a glorious 2-week vacation at Casa de Lata with our two children. It was our second time at the house. The facilities, the rooms, beds, kitchen area, air-conditioning, fans, were all to our satisfaction. The pool is amazing, both daytime and night swimming was fun. The covered veranda, esp on the second floor is extremely spacious and since everybody spends all their time outside this was a big plus on both sunny and rainy days. And of course the best part about the house is the incredible view. It can't be beat. A 180 degree (a little more actually) unobstructed span of the Pacific. You can see when the tide is up or down but looking over to the "Whale Tail", you can easily spot the Osa Peninsula and Cano Island where you will definitely want to go snorkeling, and best of all, you can enjoy the action of the sky during sunset, dawn, and if you're lucky you can enjoy the incredible show in the sky during evening lightning storms in the distance over the ocean. The ride up the hill to the house is not intimidating even though a 4-wheeel drive is necessary, and the altitude provides not only the opportunity to be almost at horizon level while still so close to the ocean, but it also provides a wonderful breeze no matter how warm the weather. We spotted all kinds of amazing birds every morning from the veranda, and could hear the howler monkeys every morning. The property managers are readily available and they even checked in on us while we were there just to make sure we were okay. They answered all outs inquiries and made recommendations on the various places to visit that were of interest to us. We highly recommend Case de Lata and hope to return again...
