“Great rustic cabin”
Reviewed February 24, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This is well represented as on internet. A rustic cabin nestled in a beautiful jungle scene with toucans, Howler monkeys and various wildlife within view. The ocean view is great and the grounds are enchanting. The owners are personable and set a great standard for owners of rental property. The only con for my wife and I is the road to the cabin was a bit arduous as it is fairly far up and gravel. But worth it for sure. Visit Las Laurelas ( ? on spelling). great restaurant in Uvita and a great wine bar not far from that eatery.

“jungle cabin stay”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Enjoyed it very much and do not be afraid of rainy season. It was surprisingly pleasant and not very hot. Only rained mostly in afternoons after 3-4 PM and sometimes all during the night.

So glad you enjoyed it! Rainy season, as residents, is our favorite time of the year because it is cooler & greener. Altho it is hard to beat the warmth during cold season elsewhere ;)

“Everything we hoped it would be”
Reviewed March 30, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Quintessential cabin. It was just a few minutes drive from the beach and major road. We felt as though we were in the jungle, and we were. The cabin is so comfortable and had everything you would need to cook a meal. The Cabin is situated far enough away from the main house that you do not see it, making it very private. It was also nice to know our hosts were close by and available if we needed something. The hosts also provide a rich abundance of literature on the area, the wildlife and things to do. The views are spectacular and tough to beat. Our hosts were delightful and such a pleasure to talk to. We are planning a longer stay for our next visit.

“The best place to stay in CR!!”

This is a special gem hidden away in the mountains of beautiful Costa Rica. My partner and I stayed there for just a couple of days (wish it was longer!) and our experience was amazing. If you are looking for a place to just relax, enjoy the mountain and ocean view, take a swim in an infinity pool, listen to the monkeys howling and the toucans sing, then this is the place to be! It doesn't get better than this and you will not regret it. The little house we stayed in was the Jungle House and it's got your basic needs...from a comfy bed to a little kitchenette, to a pretty cool bathroom which makes it seem as though you are showering right in the jungle! Everything about this house and the location was amazing. We will definitely be coming back. Oh and the host and hostess are very friendly and whatever you need, they are there for you! Like I said, you will not regret staying here :)
