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...

It took some getting used to that the upstairs (screened porch, bedrooms, bathroom) were separated by a lockable door from the downstairs (dining table, kitchen, another bathroom, another shower). It felt like two distinct and separate places. At times this...

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...

Directly on Punta Uva beach, one of the region's most swimmable and most beautiful beaches (the house is on the 50 meter line, the closest that houses in Costa Rica can legally be to the ocean). Punta Uva is located between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo.
Punta Uva dive center is about 500meters away
Best Caribbean Restaurant is a 5 minute walk away "Selvin"
Supermarket 800 meters
Bus Stop 200m
Getting around
You can move around easlily by bicycle during the day - to explore nearby beaches like Playa Chiquita, Cocles or ride even to Puerto Viejo which is about 7 km. The roads are in good condition and flat.

A car is nice to have if you come with kids or you want to explore further to the National parks of Cahuita or the Wildlife Refugee of Gandoca/ Manzanillo
or if it rains and in the night we do not recomend to ride the bike.

But you can always call a inexpensive Taxi or a TukTuk.

Public transportation is available - just 200m from the house stops the bus every 2 hours and takes you to Puerto Viejo, Cahuita, Manzanillo, Limon and San Jose.
Car not needed
