About Del Chmielewski

My wife and I have lived in Wisconsin all our lives. I own a CPA firm and love to travel to exotic places. This is our dream retirement home.

Del Chmielewski purchased this house in 2009

Why Del Chmielewski chose Uvita

In 2000 a friend recommended that we visit the Uvita Costa Rica area. We fell in love with the area and bought land in 2002. It is the only area on the Pacific Coast where the mountains come right down to the ocean making it the most dramatic landscape. Uvita area has the following amenities: National Park with Whale Watching,200-500ft waterfalls,Best Deep-sea fishing in World,Most eco-diversity in World, Many Americans who live there. I call it the 'Naples of Costa Rica'.

What makes this house unique

The best most expansive (50+ miles) oceanviews in all of Costa Rica.One of the largest private lots in our development 13.3 acres , which means more privacy for you.

Friendliest , most helpful staff as witnessed by our reviews

Very beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

It was wonderful. Alex & estaphanie were very nice. Helpful. Anything we wanted. There was concern when the huge spider was in kitchen. Then another couple days later in bathroom... ATV tour was out of this world!! 2 of us went fishing for couple hours also. A lot of fun!

Owner's Response: Dana and friends Thank you for staying at Del Congos de Uvita. and thank you for your comment on Facebook " this place is too awesome to be real ". I appreciate your comment about the spiders and I would like to point out that we spray the house for insects regularly however when it rains insects in the surrounding Jungle may seek the shelter of a dry place like our house. Since Alex and Stephanny live in a house on the property and are available 24/7 I am glad they took care of the problem! Del

It is a great house to spend your vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We just loved being in the mountain with that awesome view, surrounded by all kinds of birds and exotic plants. The house is just beautiful. Very clean, very spacious, with all the amenities you need. The people who are in charge of the mainteinance (Alex and Estefany) are excelent persons just willing to help and to make sure you have a great time. The pool is very relaxing with a water slide just to have more fun. My two kids just couldn´t stay out of it. I would definetly recommend this property for a relaxing time. Thanks Del for letting us stay at your house, we will definetly visit again as soon as we can.

Javier.

Owner's Response: It was very kind of you to take the time to write your review. In talking with you, I found out that you are a native of Costa Rica and therefore you have seen many of the splendors of Costa Rica and have shared such kind words about your stay . There are not many places left in this World where you can stay in Luxurious Lodging nestled in Primary Jungle and all its beauty with 50 mile Ocean Coastline views yet just 2.5 miles from a city (Uvita) and just above Marina Bellana National Park . We hope you and your family return soon.

Good choice for first trip to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica. This property, and Uvita in general, seemed to be a good choice.

The owner Del made every effort to help non-Spanish speaking Americans have a great first trip. We were glad we took his offer to rent his vehicle (we met folks who had bad experiences with car rental) and to have caretaker Alex pick us up in San Jose. And, Del arranged some great day trips and provided lots of helpful info on the area. And, Estephanie cooked several dinners for us and did a great job.

We were also happy with the choice of Uvita as a destination. It is small enough to have a local feel but not isolated or remote. Beach trips, horse back riding trips, zip lining, fishing all within an hour. No big gated resorts or high pressure urban density. Lots of small and local places to eat and a few higher end. Beaches especially beautiful and empty. People very friendly.

The house is very comfortable. The view is as advertised and the property is very quiet high on the mountain with plants and wildlife abundant. We found the pool, kitchen and bedrooms/bathroom all easy to use and right-sized (ie not overdone). The internet was a tad spotty. Alex and Estephanie took care of everything very well and pointed us to some nice places to visit.

As we got to know our way around the area, the climb up the mountain to the house seemed less intimidating. You need 4 wheel drive and a steady hand but "steep" somehow does not do it justice. We allowed 15-20 minutes to get from the house to Uvita.

The work on the new house on the same property and just down the hill was wrapping up when we were there and that may change the feel of the original house a bit. It is well down the hill but the drive to the new house goes past the original house.

I would recommend both the house and Uvita.

Del Congo de Uvita - A Paradise on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible journey! We arrived at the house, up the huge mountain and felt as if we were in paradise! The view was beyond stunning and it was so peaceful. We loved the indigenous town of Uvita. The description of the home and area was exactly as expected.

Del has an amazing household team: Alex and Estefany, who are wonderfully warm, helpful and friendly people. Without them, the trip would not have been as enjoyable...they were there for our every need and we miss them! They both made sure that every detail was taken care of for us and always explained how to get to places; they cleaned the home everyday while we were gone and we always returned to fresh laundry!

Thank you to Del for also ensuring that our trip was the best it could be; he stayed in contact with us throughout the trip, checking in to make sure our stay was a good one! His home couldn't have been more relaxing after a long day of horseback riding, waterfall excursions, ATV'ing, boating, and more. Not only do you have an amazing view but the home has doors that open on all sides and you feel as if you a living among nature in the rainforest. Even when it did rain, we sat out on the patio with drinks and listened to the sounds of rain and animals.

We experienced seeing a slow sloth in a tree one day, toucan birds and heard the roars of monkeys. We also saw a colorful macaw bird and baby monkeys playing in a local restaurant, among the trees. There are many wonderful beaches to explore every single day along the coast - some in the national parks and better ones outside of the park - especially Play Ventana, our favorite private beach, not far from Uvita. Also make sure to check out the Tilapias El Pavon restaurant near the Punta Mala de Osa bridge - it has an amazing waterfall on the grounds (INCREDIBLE!!).

We don't have too many criticisms; we didn't have any bug biting problems and the house was bug free aside from a visit or two from a gecko; the ride up and down the mountain takes some getting used to as it is somewhat steep and narrow, but we just took it slow; we even stopped at Del's small yet beautiful waterfall on the grounds.

Overall the trip was the perfect adventurous type vacation you dream of and the local people are extremely friendly; you feel safe all the time and only have to relax and enjoy the beautify surroundings. We will definitely return some day.

Thank you Del, Alex and Estefany for such a lovely memory!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I really enjoy helping guests plan their vacations which are a very special time spent with family and friends. From the preplanning literature, to booking tours for guests, to arranging transportation. It is so nice to hear someone describe so accurately some of the reasons that make "Del Congos de Uvita " such an incredible place! I would like to clarify one point about the road up. We are in an international development which overlooks 50 miles of ocean coastline which has a Road Association which maintains the roads.Yes , the roads are steep in parts but well maintained and there are a few spots where it is tight for two cars to pass however the end result is spectacular and well worth the short drive. We look forward to your return to our definition of "Paradise on Earth"

Beautiful view, wonderful caretakers!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two kids-ages 9 & 12) had a wonderful week here, thanks to the kind caretakers, Alex & Estefany. We enjoyed two delicious dinners with them, even my picky eaters loved their cooking. Our kids attend a spanish immersion program in CA, and Alex & Estefany spent hours talking with them. It was a fantastic way for the kids to learn about the Costa Rican culture, practice their spanish and enjoy getting to know new people. They took great pride in taking care of this beautiful home, and it was our pleasure to tip them generously for all their hard work.

We enjoyed exploring Uvita and the surrounding beaches and waterfalls. It's always refreshing to find beaches that are wide open and empty, Playa Ventanas was a favorite. We would head out after breakfast and spend the day out and about, returning every afternoon for dinners at home, with a few spectacular thunderstorms throughout the week. If you are looking for a unique, tranquil home this is the perfect place for you. It has everything you need for an adventurous, yet relaxing trip.

The view can not be matched!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our days at the local beaches swimming or working on a photo shoot. The location can not be matched and the recommended restaurants are terrific. We spent our mornings cooking breakfast and watching the sun rise. During the day it was off to the beaches which are very close. We would return to the house change clothes and relax by the pool to see the grate view of the ocean followed by dinner at one of the recommended restaurants.

The bedrooms are well maintained and cleaned daily at a time of your choosing and the kitchen is well stocked so you can visit the local store and cook your own meals if you so choose. Typically we cooked breakfast and lunch unless driving to the zip line or horseback excursions.

Owner's Response: Jeff, Thanks for staying at "Del Congos de Uvita". I know that you loved the privacy of our 13 acres afforded you and your group yet close to town and the beaches for your photo shoot.It sounds like our staff gave you privacy when you wanted yet the house was always impeccably clean. As you stated in your title, the views are the very best with over 50 miles of coastline view. We hope that you come visit us again as we are building another two bedroom house 50 yards below the main house with a lap pool which should be finished in Spring 2015.
