Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing experience for me and my family. The place was great, it's a small paradise in the Pacific. Perfect location if you want to visit beaches and waterfalls.

This place was AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more wonderful place to stay in Costa Rica. Sue was a very gracious and wonderful host. She gave us excellent information on where to eat and explore. She even invited us to play softball with her team!!! The property was beautiful and well taken care of. Driving up the mountain was a bit intimidating at first but was a breeze after the first few trips. The pool is fabulous one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. If you are looking for a great place to stay with friends or family this is it!!! What a great Value also.

I would recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet and lush environment after a day of sun and fun. Thank you Sue for a wonderful experience Pura Vida and tell charlie we miss him!!!

Beautiful vista!

  • 4 of 5

Nice accomodations but problem with water, air conditioner, plugged drains—all we’re taken care of after awhile. Beautiful pool, vistas, villa but wish we had pool to ourselves which we expected. The owner was very nice and accommodating. We would recommend place to others.

Wonderful house and gardens

  • 5 of 5

We loved the big pool. Sue welcomed us and had fresh fruit. The details of the house where great, I liked the real wood doors and all wood ceilings. The tile work in the house and pool area was excellent (I built part of our house once). The fish pond and waterfall was nice to visit. The landscaping was well done. The views from the porch where great, birds, toucans and that pretty blue butterfly. Once the repair man fixes the living room air conditioner (noisy) all will be great.

Absolutely stunning setting, excellent host, super relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5 nights, Sue is such a helpful and generous host. We already are planning to book again for next year. What I loved most about this property was the peaceful setting with surrounding jungle, the balcony where we sat and enjoyed meals, and of course the immaculate pool - essential for the hot humid Costa Rican weather. The property is a short drive from shops, restaurants and the beach. I would recommend this place to people wanting peace and private but great access to all that this part of Costa Rica has to offer.

Best place to stay in Uvita

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great property and a great owner! Very clean and well kept and the pool is awesome after a day of exploring. The air conditioning and amenities are just like home which is nice to have. Sue (the owner) knows the lay of the land and is very helpful on places to visit in the area. We'll certainly be back and I will recommend this place to any and all that plan to visit the best part of Costa Rica. Thanks again for the hospitality Sue!
