About The Owner

I moved here from Sarasota Florida around 11 years ago. I designed my home to optimize living with nature, which is the reason I was so attracted to this property. I knew that I wanted to share this special place with others, which is why the house was designed sort of like a compound, with separate destination points and privacy in mind. I love animals and plants, all things of beauty. The picture of myself here is with a howler monkey that I raised from the time of her mothers death, she was only about 2 weeks old when she was brought to me. She stayed with almost 5 years and I slowly was able to introduce her to the jungle and other monkeys. She now lives free and has her own baby! This was one of the grandest experiences I have had here.

Why The Owner chose Uvita

This area has a very healing energy about it and the beauty is unsurpassed. The location feels like you are far away from it all, yet I have easy access to all my needs, like hospital, shopping, great restaurants, tours, beaches and fun things to do.

What makes this house unique

Being able to witness the wildlife and beauty of nature all around me. Incredible breezes and cooling rains in the evening. Waking to the sounds of the waves breaking and howler monkeys is just paradise to me. Watching the sun shine on the water drops left by the nights rain, making it look like diamonds have fallen on the jungle at night. No distractions other than the beauty of the jungle and ocean.

We just spent 3 nights while exploring the Uvita area. Dale and Sean were very friendly and welcoming. It's definitely very relaxing - I swam in the pool just about everyday and enjoyed the spectacular view everyday over breakfast. Everything was as described - our room was very comfortable. We used the kitchen to make dinner a couple of nights and had great conversations with our hosts. Dale set us up with a zip lining tour which was fabulous and was so knowledgeable about everything the area had to offer which is a huge benefit. Loved our stay and enjoyed the company :-)

Owner's Response: We love having guest who are considering a move to Costa Rica some time in their future. Wish you could have stayed longer as there is so much more to do and see here. I am so glad you felt comfortable here and hope that you will return in the future, maybe with a longer stay...

Beauty and Luxury in an exotic setting

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from three fantastic weeks at Casa Tranquilla on Costa Rica's beautiful Pacific coast. I can honestly say that the photos we saw of the property before making our selection do not do justice to the beauty, privacy, add splendor of this magnificent place! Our expectations were exceeded on every front by Dale and Shaun! This was our third visit to Costa Rica and it just keeps getting better! I highly recommend that anyone visiting this fantastic country should not try to see it all at once. Even in a small place like Uvita there is so much to do and see! The view from the Rancho alone is breathtaking! We look forward to our return next year!

Incredible Home Nestled In the Jungle

  • 5 of 5
My recent stay at Casa Tranquila was a new experience in accommodation and convenience. From the moment I walked down the Garden Path, surrounded by tropical plants, to the Balinese style structures, I knew I was in for something different. The proprietress, Dale, met me and introduced me to her home and my home away from home. From the inviting main structure with comfy chairs, sofa, and hammocks to my separate room, every detail was considered and provided. The attention to detail ensured a pleasant and care free respite. Need a corkscrew? It's waiting next to the cards, cribbage board and DVD (movie selected especially for me.) Flashlight? Next to my bed. Dependable WIFI. Although you will spend most of your time in the refreshing pool area, the lushly landscaped grounds are worth a stroll. The location, nestled between ancient trees, up a hill, provided for a great ocean view and cooler temperatures. Full size screened doors/windows and ceiling fan made sleeping cool and bug free. The highlight came the first morning, as the jungle woke up, I was surrounded by the sounds of Monkeys, Toucans and other animals. What a hidden gem!

Lovely Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Tranquila. The landscaping is incredible - and elegantly transitions to the jungle so you are surrounded by wildlife. The architecture is such that you never need to be completely indoors (except in the bathroom, where it is nice to have four walls). We loved our room and our morning chorus of wildlife sounds, including howler monkeys! I was particularly enchanted by the common area - sort of an outdoor "great room" that includes the kitchen, dining area, living space, hammocks and lounging area. Dale has wonderful taste and the white-on-dark-wood decor is very relaxing and elegant, without being stuffy at all. We also loved the full kitchen, as we enjoy cooking on our vacations. And the friendly animals (two resident dogs and three cats, plus some visitors) make it feel like a home away from home for those of us who miss our pets terribly when we travel.

Dale is a great help when it comes to planning daytime activities. She is up early and thoughtfully prepares morning beverages of choice for her guests, then she offers suggestions for sightseeing and other activities. While we were there, she coordinated a fabulous waterfall hike (with Rancho DiAndrew - I highly recommend it!) as well as a snorkeling trip to Cano Island (totally worth it!). She also gave us restaurant recommendations and ideas for different beaches to visit.

A car with 4WD is key to appreciating this location, as there are only a few places that could truly be walked to from the property and the driveway is steep. But if you have a vehicle, you are a quick drive to many restaurants, beaches, sunset-watching spots, ceviche stands and activities. I highly recommend catching a sunset at El Castillo, a five-minute drive away. This was one of Dale's recommendations and it was stunning.

Incredible place... mere words cannot do it justice!!!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Tranquila is an incredible oasis that we feel very fortunate to have found. From the breathtaking views of the marine reserve to the peaceful nature of Dale, it is truly a special place!!

On arrival we felt immediately comfortable and welcomed by Dale and her sweet animals. She is a very kind person who is passionate about making your stay as amazing as possible. It's rare to find someone like Dale who is truly a kind person with a huge heart.

The property is gorgeous and you really feel immersed in the surrounding jungle. The main living space is completely open to the outdoors. Its wonderful that you can relax in the pool staring out at the marine reserve, swing in a hammock looking at the sunset or explore the side property with howler monkeys in the trees. We also had our own private cabin which was clean and spacious.

It's difficult to find the words to describe how incredibly beautiful this place is and if you travel to Costa Rica we would most certainly recommend Casa Tranquila. We know we will 100% go back here when adventuring around this amazing country again :)

My property backs up to Primary Rain Forest, you can walk and explore without having to take a tour. There is also a wonderful Canopy Tour and Waterfall Tour near by and Ultra Light Plane tours. I also have many books to share and hammocks to relax if you are not an adventure seeker. Sunsets down at the beach are wonderful and very close by. The only rip tide free beach is right below my home a short distance away to the entrance.
