  • Blackbeach

    "Comfortable home steps from huge oceanfront pool and beach. Our group enjoyed surfing and paddleboarding right out front. The house was clean and open with plenty of seating downstairs inside and out. The second floor has an outside patio that was great for reading. Bedrooms are large with crisp white sheets and comfortable. Everything we needed was available in the kitchen. Thanks for a wonderful stay and plan on returning next year if not sooner."

  • A great retreat with beautiful surroundings

    "We stayed in the Zabala house and enjoyed the beautiful setting. The views from the top deck were fabulous and watching the different varieties of birds and butterflies from the porch and through the windows was fabulous. Ken was away when we arrived but we were greeted by Alex who was so welcoming. He is such a nice young man and always had a smile on his face. He is very proud of the farm and was happy to answer any of our questions! He gave us loads of information about the coffee plantation (and later an extensive tour of the property), local history and suggestions for activies and restaurants. We visited during 'rainy' season but were lucky enough not to have any rain during the days. We were greeted each morning by the family dog, Stella and listened to Coco the parrot from the porch and also when leaving or returning to Finca Flor Mar. The home is exactly as described and worked well for us. It would have been nice to have a bathroom upstairs too but we knew that when we booked. We enjoyed the experience of staying on a farm in the countryside with such beautiful surroundings. Ken's communication in arranging our stay was always prompt. When we left to travel to La Fortuna, Ken had arrived back on the farm and recommended a lunch stop and also a restaurant to try for dinner. We went to both and were not disappointed! The dinner spot, Gingerbread, was a 45 drive from our next accommodation but well worth the drive to get there! I even texted Ken while we were there to let him know how fabulous it was and to thank him for the suggestion! Pura Vida!"

  • 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!!"

  • Fantastic Home, GREAT for a Family Getaway

    "It's hard to find a place that accommodates a large family (we're a family of 7). This home was more than enough space! Scott and Maria took great care of us! Wildlife was amazing, got a daily show, compliments of the Macaws and several types of monkeys. Very comfortable and a quick 15 minute drive to the surf. Lots of 'stuff' to make your stay easy and good cell reception (for better of worse!!). Overall fantastic stay, looking forward to our return!"
