    We hope you feel inspired while staying in our newly-renovated beachfront home, Casa de la Musa (House of the Muse), directly on the spectacular beach of Punta Uva. This is the home where famous Costa Rican author, Anacristina Rossi, lived for nearly 15 years and wrote stories about the life and beauty of the Caribbean coast. Her works include 'La Loca de Gandoca,” which, after its release in 1992, helped save the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge from development (her books are available to read in English and Spanish at the house). While sitting in the home’s breezy deck and looking through the magnificent jungle gardens towards the gorgeous Punta Uva beach, you can easily imagine how Rossi felt inspired to write about this Costa Rican paradise.

We stayed at Casa de la Musa for two weeks. It is extremely close to the beautiful Punta Uva beach. The sound of the surf from the house was awesome! We saw several sloths and monkeys at the house. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is a big plus at night. It is much warmer near the beach and the... more

Gorgeous sand and warm water. Very few people. We always locked the gate to the beach and the gate to the house, just... more

Unlike many other Trip Advisor reviews the Casa de la Musa has few mentions. This I suspect is due to its more remote location which is its main virtue. It is almost at the "end of the road" on the Costa Rica Caribbean coast, and far enough away from the surfing/hippy town of Puerto Viejo. The house is flanked by... more
