Date of Stay
November 26, 2015
The listing description is amazing, but doesn't really do justice to this incredible property and its owners. The property was easy to find and very secure. My husband and our 3 children (17, 14 and 10) stayed here at the end of our Thanksgiving trip to Costa Rica. There was enough room for us to each have our own space and yet feel close together. The property is stunning and very welcoming; thanks to the wonderful owners that had paid great attention to the details. There was delicious coffee from the local cafe, some cold drinks and the "everything you need to know" book awaiting our arrival. This book had all the info we needed about the property, town and adventure opportunities to be had in the area. The owners made themselves available to answer any questions we had and were a delight to visit with. We were here, purposefully, to consider a move to Uvita and just fell in love with it all. We were introduced to a fabulous school that Victoria and Jason had informed us about prior to our trip and enjoyed the opportunity to visit in person; our girls had the chance to see what a school in CR looks like. We spent Thanksgiving day zip-lining at the nearby Osa Canopy Tour. There are 9 cables, 11 platforms, 2 repelling stations, 2 suspension bridges, and a crazy "tarzan" swing that the girls really loved. Chris and his team were super fun and professional. What we loved in Uvita: the atmosphere and pizza at Pizzeria La Fogata, the owner of Scooby's (he shared his favorite places to see in Uvita with us), Playa Ventanas (practically had this beach to ourselves), hiking through the jungle behind this house and the unbelievably gorgeous sunsets and wildlife viewed from the lookout balcony. Early on our first morning at the house, I saw a pod of dolphins swim by in the ocean, 3 capuchin monkeys, a scarlet macaw and five toucans from where I sat. Mind blown and I didn't even have to leave the property!!! Our only disappointment was that we had not spent our whole research vacation there and that we had to leave. This is the only place we will stay when we return to Uvita! We would give it 10 stars if we could. Truly a little piece of Heaven on earth!!!
