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, recently-restored Caribbean-style cabin with 2 bedrooms...

My family of 2 adults and 2 kids stayed at Casa de la Musa for 3 nights and loved the place. The house was clean and well maintained. The house is set in the jungle a few dozen steps from the beach. The beach directly in front of the house is rocky and not swimmable. A five minute walk to...

Our stay at Casa de la Musa was exactly what we were looking for! After many stays on the Pacific side (Manuel Antonio, Jaco)--we wanted something where we could totally disconnect and enjoy the Costa Rican nature. Make sure you're in the right mindset for this quaint, perfectly positioned house! If you want fancy furniture and elegant lodgings, this is...

The sound of the ocean waves at night and the jungle sounds were a symphony. We slept very well. Everything at the house was great. We had no problems at all during our 10 nights. It was really great to have the housekeeper do our laundry. Fresh, clean clothes. The house was clean when we got there, and cleaned during...
