  • Eko-Mar

    "We travelled to Costa Rica for three weeks with our children this summer, deciding to finish off our trip with a stay at Eko - Mar - we certainly left the best till last! The photographs, along with the description on this site do not do the property justice. Yves is an amazing host - and the house is supplied with everything you could need - from internet, to spices and equipment in the kitchen (including cold drinks in the fridge upon arrival) and games to play on a quiet Costa Rican evening! The outside living area was very comfortable and we made use of it on a daily basis, enjoying our breakfast al -fresco, as well as our siestas! Our children loved the morning visits from Bo the dog, and even though Yves lived on the property we didn't notice he was there. The situation of the house is amazing and the views it offers are breath-taking, especially at sunset, sunrise and even during thunder and lightning storms......we enjoyed being awakened by the calls of Howler Monkeys in the distance and the calls of the parakeets outside, in the trees of the garden. In the evening we enjoyed the calls of the toucans and watching them playing in the trees of the garden. In the garden the infinity pool is fantastic and we spent several hours in it playing and enjoying the views it offered, down to the Pacific Ocean - on one day we spent several hours whale watching from the pool! If you can tear yourself away from the house beautiful beaches and National Parks are all only a short drive away, as well as supermarkets, markets and restaurants - which are only 5 minutes away by car in Uvita itself. All of these things are highlighted in the information / welcome folder that Yves has produced and that you will find in the house. All in all we had an amazing stay and we really did not want to leave, for so many reasons. Eko - Mar is a truly amazing place to stay and we will never forget our time there - in fact I think it will be very hard for another property to live up to its location, wildlife and utilities - we cannot wait to return!!"

  • Heaven on Earth

    "The word paradise only touches on describing this magical place. This breezy house of mahogany, awash with the scent of tropical flowers, this is the stuff dreams are made of. The abundant sunshine, the private beach just steps away, the chatter of wild parakeets that wake you in the morning, the breathtaking sunsets to wish you a goodnight, the magnificent tropical storms, the overwhelming sense of peace. All this and so much more make this place a true heaven on earth. I stayed for two weeks with my 6 year old son. It was an enchanted journey that we’ll never forget. Alex and Mary were the most gracious of hosts who went over and above to make our stay unforgettable. I can’t recommend this beautiful beach house (or these people) more. This was not a vacation for us but rather a new family tradition!"

  • 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."
