  • You won't be disappointed!

    "Consider yourself lucky to have the opportunity of staying at Lattice House.The design, view and amenities are tip-top. Ana, the house manager, was great and provided an excellent introduction to the house as well as some great tips for places to eat and things to see. The owner, Patricia, was a pleasure to deal with and promptly responded to all of my emails. There's lots to do in the area but our favorites were: horse back riding, zip lining, hiking, visiting the beaches, an inexpensive but excellent massage in Dominical and just hanging out at the house reading a book by the pool. The area is not overly developed (no high-rise condos or hotels here!), has very good restaurants and places to stock up. Wildlife abounds. We'll definitely be coming back!"

  • The Secret Gem of Costa Rica

    "This was our 2nd time staying at Casa Toucan and having rented a few other houses now in Costa Rica, I can honestly say this is our favorite. It provides you with the realest feeling of Costa Rica while still providing all of the creature comforts you come to expect. I love how you can open up the whole house and let your sights spill down onto the back deck, down onto the HUGE pool and even further down onto the untouched jungle. Casa Toucan is also the best place to watch the Sunset! Finding the waterfall on the property is an adventure and if you think you've reached the end of the trail, push a little further and the waterfall will surprise you on the other side. Our house managers Tom and Christine were as accommodating and friendly as ever and are always open to helping you discover new things to do and places to eat around Uvita. We suggest taking the ATV Tour starting from Uvita, the Horseback tour to the Nuayaca Falls, and definitely eating at The Jolly Roger (try the Troubadour Wings). Pura Vida until next time!"

  • A Costa Rica Gem...

    "We've been grateful to visit many places around the globe, but it's still a thrilling surprise to find a place crafted and decorated with such care and inspiration. The owners are gracious and exceptionally accommodating, the setting is gorgeous, and the villa is nothing less than extraordinary. Yes, a 4X4 is a MUST; but that simply goes with the territory (side road in Costa Rica hills). Easy access to three entirely charming towns. Uvita has a great farmers market, not one but two supermarkets, a great coffee shop/restaurant, and others besides. Ojochal is home to some extraordinary restaurants. And Dominical has some brilliant places to eat and shop at and see. Gorgeous wildlife and countryside all around. We stayed at this Villa hoping to have a wonderful and rejuvenating holiday. It was indeed that; a truly exceptional place and setting."

  • Caught a TON of Sailfish with Diablo Sportfishing while Staying at Jungle Mountain Bungalow

    "My 6 day visit (2/18 - 2/23) was set up to assess Costa Rica as a final destination for this retired marine biologist and especially its offshore big game fishing situation. As someone who has fished all over the world (see www.BigMarineFish.com), I had selected CR as the best potential spot for my retirement and I was not disappointed! I also chose to stay at the Jungle Mountain Bungalows, owned by Capt. Kevin Malone and his wonderful wife, Alyson, to see what living up high in that less developed part of CR might be like. You can see from their website’s photos that the bungalows are really nice, stocked with everything you might need, bathed by cool breezes each evening (no AC needed up there on the mountain), surrounded by virtually pristine tropical rainforest (CR has the greatest biodiversity of any place in the world), unspoiled yet largely un-populated beaches along the beautiful coast, with dramatic sunset views of the Pacific from the bungalows’ porches. Idyllic. Driving up and down the mountain (4x4 required) was an adventure in itself. Kevin Malone is a top notch charter captain, extremely skilled in all the little details of big game fishing (such as rigging ballyhoo baits to look to a sailfish as if it were a real swimming baitfish) that make all the difference between just a nice boat ride vs. a day filled with the best fishing one could possibly enjoy (as I experienced with him, twice). The night before, we had decided to target sailfish offshore on my two days, so we got up early and Kevin drove his center console about 25 miles across a choppy Pacific to an underwater mountain known as the Furuno Bank where we fished both days. On day 1 we raised 9 sailfish and brought 7 to the boat to be fully revived prior to their release – which I viewed as an extremely good day’s outing. But he topped that performance the following day, going 9 for 11. These sailfish are big, 7 to 8 feet long and ours were about 90 to 125 lbs – more than twice as large as those I’ve caught in the Florida Keys – and since they spend a lot of energy jumping, sailfish are spectacular to fight. Ours usually took about 20-25 minutes to finally bring close enough for Kevin to grab their bill and remove the circle hook before release. On day 2, I had 30 minutes left on my charter “clock” but told Kevin to just “head for the barn” as I was exhausted and had had enough. All told, our sailfish would have added up to about 2,000 lbs! Can’t imagine better fishing."
