  • Unique Place in a Nice Area

    "Our family enjoyed 4 nights here, the house is unique and the views are really great. You get to see the lush vegetation and mountains of the Ballena Coast from almost anywhere on the property, not to mention the ocean view. We didn't get to see the most spectacular sunsets because of weather conditions, but we enjoyed every evening by the pool and the twilight was still awesome. Insects were not a problem and the house was fresh and cool at night without the need for A/C, there were plenty of ceiling fans and other fans when there wasn't any breeze. The house is exactly as shown in the pictures, it has lovely wood accents and a unique character. The kitchen was fully equipped with a full sized refrigerator and gas stove. The access roads to the property were in good condition, they are gravel but seem to be well maintained by the community. It is green season, but not the heaviest rainy period, so conditions may vary at other times of the year. The house is surrounded by other luxury properties and the area seemed really safe to us. We visited the Whale's Tale in Uvita and did a whale & dolphin snorkelling tour our first day, the second day we visited the Ventanas and Piñuelas beaches and the third day we went to the world famous Naucaya waterfall, which was definitely one of the highlight attractions in Costa Rica. You won't regret visiting this area and this house is a very good selection."

  • Very nice home, the pictures don't do it justice.

    "My husband and I have lived in CR for more than a year and stayed in many places. This home has been very thoughtfully put together.Other homes/cabinas have disappointed in one way or another, this home was better than expected and without the disappointment. We brought my husband's parents from the States down and they were thrilled with the place. "I am really going to miss this little place," my mother in law said repeatedly. Massi was very helpful and gave very detailed instructions on how EVERYTHING worked. Great stay!"

  • Wonderful Rainforest Home

    "The home is modern and lovely. The master bedroom and ensuite are gorgeous. The pool is kept clean and has a fantastic view through the jungle to the ocean. The landscaping is beautiful, with a gentleman gardener on site to manage any needs. We made our banana daiquiris from bananas picked from trees in our garden. The house is surrounded by lush rainforest, alive with wildlife. My favourite were the howlers you were hear from various locations in the jungle. One afternoon an entire troupe of about 30 howlers visited us. Adults, babies, teens and alpha males. It was a magical time. You certainly feel secure in this house, though except for petty crime, this area of Costa Rica is very safe. Power outages of a couple of hours are quite common when it rains but the gardener always made sure we were OK. They really are not much of an inconveniences and you are after all, in the jungle. Warning - You must have a 4 wheel drive. The short drive up to the house is rugged but the vehicle will also come in handy for other rainforest adventures. If you have any issues, Christine and Tom are extremely attentive."

  • Paradise As Promised!

    "This house truly was Paradise As Promised! It was everything and more that you see in the photos and read about in the rave reviews. We were an extended family of 5 vacationing in Claire's home away from home, which became our home away from home. Beautiful indoor and outdoor space - comfortable - very nicely furnished with all the amenities you need (small stuff like: plenty of beach towels, dishwashing soap, laundry soap, hand soap, shampoo, etc... items that we have had to purchase in the past at other VRBO properties.). The house was so clean and neat upon arrival that we felt compelled to leave it just as nice the morning we left. Having 2 master bedrooms and the 2 additional bedrooms and bathrooms was very nice for a larger group. Pool and gardens were lovely. Fun to sit on deck and watch the monkeys and toucans in the trees! Heard the Howler Monkeys in the mornings but never got a look. The view is spectacular - over the rainforest tree tops to the ocean. If you are into fitness, a morning walk up the driveway and on the road will really get your heart going! And yes, the road up and the driveway do require a steady driver and a 4 wheel drive - no drinking and driving up this road at night! We would venture out for daytime activities, return home and then out to dinner at night - many great restaurants within 10 - 15 minutes after you got to the main road (driveway averaged about 15 minutes). Having access to Claire's beach club came in handy a couple times - Uvita Beach was close and very nice. Didn't use the beach club facilities though as they seemed to cater to a local, regular clientele. In conclusion, we recommend this property and the owner - Claire was wonderful to work with and gave great directions and instructions for our arrival. Hint: We used a local tour company for some great day trips to the best nature sites: Bahia Adventuras - we highly recommend them - great tours and the best guides! Thanks Claire for letting us enjoy your home and enjoy Pura Vida!"
