    We hope you feel inspired while staying in our recently-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.

    Casa de la Musa is a clean, recen...

Everything was perfect for us. The house is clean, we felt safe and at home. Plenty of space for us (family of 4 ). It was very special to wake up ( ok, it was very early ) because of the Howler Monkeys and than get up and walk to the beach, sitting there with a cup of coffee, nobody... more

There is a kitchen with everything we needed (except for the toaster which had not been replaced yet) and a comfortable seating area downstairs. The first floor was perfect for us because the two rooms... more

My wife & I, both single parents of 4 & 6 year old girls, married on August 3rd, 2014. We chose Casa de la Musa because of the 2 bedrooms but at the end it was a perfect accommodation for a myriad of reasons!!
