  • An oasis for the mind, body and soul.

    "My girlfriend and I spent two weeks at Casa Bambu, and literally had tears in our eyes when we had to leave. If you are looking for a break from your hectic life, need to recharge, and gain some perspective, Jacqui and Randy have created a home that reflects their love of Costa Rica embracing both the serenity of the mountain and the expanse of the ocean from a truly private location. Nestle at the top of a winding road, best driven in a 4X4 , you arrive at a house meticulously cared for , beautiful gardens surround you, and an orchestra of wildlife serenades you. The kitchen is well equipped, airy, and spotless. Whether making fresh ceviche, firing up the barbecue or blending fresh fruit shakes, you won't be disappointed. Jacqui and Randy provided us with great suggestions for restaurants, but most nights we were content to create our own dinners, half the fun was checking out the farmers market in Quepos and Uvita and the local market (BM) had everything else. You can choose to spend your day on the wide veranda, overlooking the expanse of jungle leading to the Whales Tail, floating around their infinity pool, or you can make your way to any number of beaches which suit both the surfer and sun worshipper. A must do...walking the beach of Playa Balena at low tide..your footsteps may be the only ones you see..:) We would also recommend the Uvita Information Centre - very helpful and they use great tour operators. We chose to fly from San Jose to Quepos via Sansa Airlines, (an easy connection) airports are next to each other...which takes about 25 mins and saves the longer drive from San Jose 2.5 to 3 hours. The flight passes over beautiful mountain ranges leading to the sea, so you can get a great overview. We were met in Quepos (a small landing strip) by a representative of Vamos Car rental (they bring the vehicle from San Jose. We got a new automatic 4X4, which was suited to the bumpy off roads of CR. Once you get to Uvita and you head up to the property, it is steep, but well graded now and will be second nature after a couple of trips. As I mentioned earlier, we had a hard time leaving Casa Bambu. After the first night looking up at the stars, listening to all the life surrounding me, I felt like a child again, grateful to have been to given the opportunity to rediscover what so easily gets lost in our busy lives, a sense of discovery, of wonder, in a truly natural world.."

  • AMAZING VACATIONS!!! WOW!

    "My husband and i booked the casita in January 2017 for 10 days and it was pure PARADISE! The location is perfect, not too far from all the services , but away from all the sound. You feel like you have the jungle to yourself. Everything is clean and comfortable. The water pressure is so great and the water was always hot for a shower at the end of the day. The pool is just AMAZING! Refreshing and the view on the ocean is just crazy , especially for sunsets. There is also a private waterfall , so pretty and so much fun to swim there everyday. We even spent a few days staying at the house , because we had so much fun at the pool and the waterfall. I highly recommend this place to everyone. The owner and the caretakers were also super helpful and kind. I want to go back every year :)"

  • Pretty location near beach and amenities

    "Comfortable, clean house near to small town and beautiful beach. Well equipped for cooking but restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. Further amenities a 1.5 mile walk along the main road, which is where the town is. Nice, large garden with tub which was useful for cooling down as it was very hot in January. Air conditioning in bedroom worked but made room too cold and we couldn't figure out how to get it to maintain a constant comfortable temperature so had to keep turning it on and off in the night. Lots of pretty birds in the garden and field next door. Loved the sound of the monkeys but didn't see any. Lovely walk to the Whales Tale beach 10 minutes away and great place to watch the sun set. Local people lovely and very helpful."

  • Most likely the nicest place I have ever stayed.

    "Greg's place is as advertised. My GF and I spent the last 3 days of our Costa Rican vacation at J5 Luxury Villa. Luxurious does not completely describe how top notch this villa is. Aside from everything appearing to be brand new and top of the line from the bedding to the cookware. Honestly, even though one of the nicest beaches in CR is literally a 3 minute walk...we had a had time leaving the villa because it was so nice."
