"This is a gem of a place in a great location"
This is a little gem of a place....what a find! It is well located for Uvita and surrounding area including great beaches, Ballenas Marine Zoological park, whale watching trips and surfing....it is also within easy reach of the Sierpe river and Osa peninsula for trips there. The Casita is the usual basic layout and is very well equipped, including toaster, coffee maker & microwave....the room is comfortable with nice boutique touches and a good bed....it also has a great shower....rare in Costa Rica! My most favourite thing about this accommodation was the garden and surrounding secondary forest, it is alive with birds hummingbirds and butterflies I spotted around 35 species just sitting at the picnic table, including toucans, parrots, honey creepers and an early morning visit from 12 macaws....real birders would see even more. The river setting is tranquil, calming and cooler than beach areas....getting to the waterfall and natural pool is very manageable. Rachel & Steven are gracious welcoming hosts, we were the only guests and while they made sure we knew they were there if we needed anything but they are not at all intrusive and it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They make lots of invaluable information available and Rachels day out itinerarys were very helpful. You will need a car to stay here..Rachel & Steven booked one on our behalf for our stay and it was delivered to us...they also booked a whale watching trip for us..saw humpback whales & Dolphins.
