Recent Uvita reviews

  • 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.."

  • World Class Home

    "We recently spent 1 week at this magnificent home. Unique, beautiful home with the best view of the CR pacific coast. Home was spotless, spacious with all the amenities one would desire. House keeper was amazing and Alex the concierge was very helpful. Quite a drive from San Jose but was part of the total adventure. You will not find a nicer home for a luxury vacation."

  • Perfect Escape!

    "This is our FOURTH and NOT our last stay at Bruce and Valerie's beautiful location, we hope! The design and situation of this Casa has always been second to none and so was this visit. Everything continues to be beautifully maintained and updated visit to visit amidst the amazing maturing and greening of the grounds; inspiring both us and the area birds which are as varied as the blooms! The view of the valley and the ocean from anywhere in the house couldn't be improved on... or so we THOUGHT! Since our last visit, a beautiful Palapa has been added to the grounds which takes wonderful advantage of yet another beautiful view; the mountainside, the gardens and the endless species of butterflies. (Morning coffee under the Palapa is our newest "tradition")! Also new this year, is an upgraded, state of the art, barbecue that has been tucked into a newly developed outdoor prep and entertaining area; even cooking has been made a relaxing experience! The mountain neighbours and the property management supports always add to our experience. We feel supported and confident in setting up our time to include anything we want. Provisioning in town is made so simple, that it makes 'leaving the world behind" and "accessing what we need" an easy balance. From this location, we have, over the years, taken advantage of so many of the offered area activities. (zip lining, sea kayaking, stunning Mangrove tours, Corcovado National Park tours and more). This trip, however, we needed to just 'unplug'. Other than devoting one day to repelling down waterfalls in our own "backyard" on the mountain (a must for us), we found that we could just tuck into our "tree house" and not want for a thing. With Howler Monkeys to nudge us awake each day and Cicadas to nudge us towards day's end, everything in the middle was ...? Well, they don't say "Pura Vida" around there for nothing. Thank you Valerie and Bruce for continuing to share your beautiful home! R & B"

  • Beautiful, comfortable, affordable 2 bedroom cottage

    "Four of us spent 3 nights at Alegria Tropical and enjoyed the stay very much. The facility is fantastic with air conditioning in each bedroom which made for comfortable sleeping. The furnished kitchen enabled us to make some of our own meals. The clean swimming pool was great for a late evening swim after spending an afternoon at the nearby beach We also really enjoyed our evening meals at Tabor Espanol, a restaurant only a 5 minute walk away. Some of us spend an hour each morning sitting by the pool watching the many birds in the surrounding trees including the Mandibled Toucan - so beautiful. If we ever get to this part of Costa Rica again, we will certainly try to book this cottage."
