The top floor has a master suite, two additional bedrooms, two balconies, and sitting and dining areas. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom.

We had a fabulous stay at Casa Uvita. As we walked up the steps into the beautiful, open-air home, we instantly felt relaxed. The decks looking out at the Pacific Ocean and are surrounded by the rainforests. We loved reading books in the hammocks, swimming in the refreshing pool, watching toucan fly by, rocking in the chairs as we watched... more

Management response:

My family (me, my wife, my mother, and our 9 year old son) had a perfect week. This was our second trip the past couple of years to Costa Rica and as much as I loved our first trip to Arenal and the Northern Pacific coast, this one was even better. Michele Gonzalez has a beautiful vacation home on the... more

Management response:

I'm so glad that you all had a great family vacation. I especially liked to hear that your 9-year old son as well as your mom enjoyed their experience. Those multi-generation vacations can be tricky, but everyone got to do what they wanted to do: rest and relax, and a little adventure in the rainforest and beach. Pura vida! more

We immensely enjoyed our stay in Michele's pride and joy; a beautiful fully solar energy powered house. Waking up with the sounds of birds (including Toucans) and howling monkeys, overlooking the pacific ocean in distance, relaxing at the pool and outdoor living style. And I must not forget the Sloths in the garden's trees, much to the delight of our... more

Management response:

It was a pleasure to have you and your family visit us here at Casa Uvita. The girls got their taste of jungle living, and they did great with the critters. I'm glad you also got to take that boat tour--seeing whales at this time of year is very special. It's all part of your good karma. Pura vida! more
