About
Description
The Flutterby House is a sustainable eco-friendly hostel, bar, and restaurant located in Uvita, Costa Rica at the edge of Marino Ballena National Park. We offer treehouses, private cabins and dorm rooms, and More are a 5 minute walk from the beach. Our mission is to provide a safe, clean, comfortable and fun “home away from home” for travelers and vacationers. We wish to foster an environment that inspires creativity, self-discovery and learning, while living sustainably, responsibly and respectfully on this earth. We offer a chef’s kitchen, surfboard rentals, yoga deck, free lockers for the use of all guests and much more! We provide hammocks in the shade, comfy lounge areas, secure camping and parking, and have quiet hours from 10pm to 7am so that all guests and wildlife may rest easily at night. Our bar/restaurant is a social hub of activity in the Uvita/Bahia area, and we are proud to serve local, organic and sustainably-raised ingredients. Less
