  • 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."

  • Luxury in a seclude location

    "Casa Tropical exceeded our expectations, the house is very well apointed with all the confort you might need, and it is even nicer than the pictures. The location is just fine close enough to the main services and destinations but in a seclude place where you are in the midle of the jungle !! Great to escape from hetic urban life and relax!!"

  • Terrific week; unbelievable views!!

    "This place comes as billed in the other reviews: the awesome view is not from some certain angle with a zoom lens. This is what it looks like all the time. It is effortless to stay there (which is something that can't always be said for traveling in Central America). I'll speak to a few specific items: The drive/road: While you do need a 4WD, as of April 2017 the unpaved, steep road was in pretty good shape. It took us maybe 13 to 16 minutes to get up/down the mountain and while it is relatively short you don't want to go up/down more than two full trips in a day (it feels a bit like a rally course). We generally went out in the morning, came back for a nap, and then went back out at night. The house: The house is great (as others have said) The bedroom is downstairs near the pool (king sized bed, firm mattress); upstairs is the porch/kitchen/living space. You have to go outside (no internal stairway) to get from upstairs to downstairs. While odd, I didn't find it got in the way. If I had to pick a nit, I would suggest a portable AC unit to cool down the bedroom at night. That being said, the insects/sun will wake you up at 5:30am....that is a far bigger impediment to sleeping than the temperature (which did drop naturally at night). Bring ear plugs and a mask if you want to sleep in. Internet worked fine in the house. We also got cell phone coverage at the house. We never even tried to turn the TV on; can't speak to that. It was just my wife and I. If you were planning to use this house for larger groups, it might be a challenge due to lack of sleeping area and large entertaining area. (You might be able to sleep more kids, not adults. For entertaining, you could likely have another couple over, but not a large group). The pool: The pool is awesome for its purpose; to cool off and enjoy the view. You can sit in it (it has a ledge) and tread water; maybe fit 4 people. If you were looking to swim laps, it won't work for that. All in all the place exceeded my expectations (Trina was nice and helpful if you needed anything). We had no real complaints and simply loved it!"

  • Best place to stay in Uvita

    "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!"
