  • Family Getaway for the Holidays

    "Villa Kristina Maria was the perfect home for our family/friends to get away for the holidays! It was more beautiful than expected. We had lots of room, never felt crowded with 7 people. Mornings were glorious sitting on the wrap around porch, drinking coffee and being delighted by the toucans, monkeys, parrots and iguanas in the surrounding rain forest. We equally enjoyed the evening sunsets over the ocean from the upper deck. Afternoons were made comfortable with a dip in the pool. We found the driveway to be part of the adventure. Claire, our host provided clear directions on how to get from Uvita to the house, including guidelines on how to navigate the driveway. It only took one run and it was old hat. Claire was a gracious host, albeit from afar, but we knew the caretaker was close if needed. We felt totally safe and secure in the home and thoroughly enjoyed venturing into town and the surrounding areas. We recommend exploring the Whales Tail, Kayaking in the Mangroves, swimming in the local waterfalls, and zip lining with Osa Canopy Tours to name a few. Claire shared lots of ideas on what to do and where to eat and she is friends with the Uvita Information Center and they provided great service and advice. If you are seeking the best of the jungle and ocean, in a tranquil setting and willing to drive 7 minutes up a dirt road to experience it, than VKM is the place to be. BRING binoculars! and sunscreen, and be prepared for dampness. (The ceiling fans gave some relief) There is no air conditioning and we liked it that way, keeping the house open. Pura Vida!"

  • Need more stars!

    "The casita was perfect! Overlooking the ocean set atop a mountain jungle. Make sure to rent a 4x4. The trek up is fun! Claire was so helpful and so sweet I couldn't have asked for a better hostess."

  • Perfect honeymoon!

    "Loved everything about the property. The river right down the road was amazing and private! Lucia falls up the road was a sight to see. The owners were very helpful and booked our zip lining tour and helped us book a car rental. I would definitely stay here again."

  • Heaven in the Jungle

    "Where do I begin!! From the moment we arrived in the country (even months before when all the planning took place!), Paula and Marty were there for us every step of the way. It was our first time visiting another country, and for our wedding no less! We got married at Nauyaca Waterfalls, which are only about 30 min away (It was a DREAM!!). As we drove up the road to our temporary home we were blown away by the surrounding jungle. The drive was a lot of fun! Safe, but make sure you have a 4x4 with decent ground clearance. We fell in love with the Villa right away, from the many birds that visit you every day, to the geckos chirping away merrily every evening (my fav part!!). I have never felt more at peace, and at home. We loved the mix of outdoors and indoors, and even indoors felt like we were part of the jungle. The property is so beautiful, there is so much to explore, I only wish we had longer to do so! We were blessed to experience a family of howler monkeys playing in the trees on one of our hikes- A tip: Really take your time to look at everything in silence and the jungle will come alive! There are many waterfalls to discover, Uvita is truly magical. Make sure to check out Playa Ventanas, it is on private property (has security watching the parking area) and just outside of the town, is absolutely gorgeous and not to be missed. Also make sure to visit the bus depot cafe, Marty was kind enough to aware of this cheap and delicious place! I'm sure I amused the very friendly and helpful workers there as we returned many times. They were very patient as we stumbled with our Spanish. (The fried chicken and rice are amazing!) Paula and Marty are very special people, they genuinely care about their home and their guests. They were always there when needed, we felt safe and well looked after. Leaving was the hardest thing I've had to do! A piece of my heart was left behind, I can only hope we return one day. Thank you Paula and Marty, from the bottom our hearts, for making this the trip of a lifetime that we will never forget! You made the most special moment of our lives all the more special..."
