Enchanting Property in Uvita, Costa Rica
Submitted: April 22, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
My extended family of five stayed at Lattice House for two weeks in March of 2013. We have traveled all over the world on vacations, and this experience was definitely up there. Our initial impressions of the property were impressive. The driveway is long, and very steep, similar to many properties in this part of Costa Rica. The house sits on roughly 60 acres of manicured grounds, with tons of flowering plants and fruit trees. The house has a beautiful view of the ocean, and although it seems further away, you can hear the surf. Otherwise, the house is surrounded by jungle, which we all loved. So many beautiful birds, and the howler monkeys were definitely a family favorite. We made several hikes to the nearby waterfall....so secluded, and just beautiful. If you go, you've got to take a swim!
The house itself is gorgeous. We have been to Bali several times, and we love the architecture, which is one of the reasons we chose Lattice House....little slice of Bali in Central America.
The house is beautifully decorated, and left us wanting for nothing. Although you can't walk to the beach, it is only about 3-5 minutes by car. It is centrally located between Uvita and Dominical, so driving wasn't a big deal at all. We made a point of going to the beach daily, but also tried some fishing, canopy tour, as well as a day trip to Corcovado to snorkel and sight see. So much to see and do, but we always loved coming back to the house and relaxing.
Costa Rica is a beautiful country, and the people are very friendly. There are so many things to do, but the house is great if you just want to relax. Ana, the property manager, is wonderful, and an absolute "laser". She was very helpful in setting up activities, making suggestions, etc.
I make very few guarantees in life, but I can pretty much guarantee that any family or group that rents this property will be very, very happy. I just can't think of any negatives. If and when I return to Costa Rica, I will absolutely try to rent this property again.
