Overview

Uvita House Rental Photos and Description

It's a designer home, just recently built. Bedroom has floor to ceiling windows overlooking mountains covered in primary rain/cloud forests.

It's a two bedroom home, please feel free to inquire about the second bedroom.

The house feels to be in a timeless place overlooking thick prime rain forest, yet it's only a few minutes away from town and few minutes to endless stunning beaches..

The most magical times are early morning and late afternoon. Sit back with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and be a spectator of nature. Listen to the howler monkey, parrots and toucans all day long.

How to get there:

The main airport is San Jose (SJO) it’s 3 ½ hours drive from Uvita, an easy drive. The only congested and confusing area is by the airport. Download waze application on your smart phone or use a GPS and it’s a breeze to get down. Alamo rents GPSs for $10/day, you can just rent it for one day and drop it off next day in the Uvita office at National.

We don’t recommend driving at night in Costa Rica, even though roads have improved tremendously, there are no sidewalks and people walk by the road and it’s hard to see them.

SIM card purchase:

You can purchase a sim card for around $4 (around 2000 colones) by the luggage claim in the airport. It’s easy to spot the Kolbi sign or you can get it in the official Kolbi offices, you just need a passport. Sim card is technically free as you can use all of the funds with calls.

Rental car:

You will need a 4 WD car to get to our house. Our preferred rental car company is Alamo. Ask for David, he speaks English and is very helpful, he’s at the airport office. Tell him I sent you, it should be less of a hassle. Normal waiting time is 1 hour. Call your credit card company in advance and find out if they cover car insurance and deduct that at the rental car company. Fees greatly add up.

The other option is to rent a car in Uvita at National rental car. You can still reserve it from home through David. The drop off fee at the airport is $50, you might be able to negotiate it. To get to Uvita in this case you can either take a bus, approximately 3 hours, it’s fast, clean and $10 or so per person.

Exchange rate and ATMs:

The dollar to colones is between 500-550 colones to the dollar. ATMs are readily available, if you come in peak season be mindful that the ATM machines get depleted during the weekends and there will be long lines. There are 3 ATM machines in Uvita. The US dollar is accepted however the exchange rate will be less than if you pay with colones.

Markets:

There are two large supermarkets (in Costa Rica standards) 4 1/2 -5 km from our house. It's in downtown Uvita. You can find pretty much everything but all the imports are pricey. For fruits and vegetables there is a truck that comes in during the week, place changes just look out for them in the downtown part by BCR bank. Also there is a Saturday market with 'organic' fruits and vegetables. If you are staying for a longer time, check out the organic market in Tinamaste a 40 minute drive on the mountain top. I heard good things about it.

Safety:

In general Costa Rica is very safe, however petty crimes do happen especially by the beaches or touristy areas. Do not bring any valuables with you and especially do not bring them with you to the beach. Leave the glove department open to indicate it’s empty.

There are lockers by the park main park entrance. Carlos the kayaking outfitter rents them out.

Fun things to do:

I very highly recommend the kayaking tour with Bahia Ballena Kayaks. They are the last house on the right hand side before the park entrance. If you make a reservation ask for Carlos and tell him I sent you to him. He will take you out personally. He is amazing!

I also recommend the Osa Mountain zip lining.

Ask for Chris at the canopy tours and feel free to mention my name.

Great places to eat:

Por Que No? in Dominical. An amazing spot for lunch or dinner. Reservations highly suggested.

Goat House, very good for lunch.

La Fogata, in Uvita right before the bridge, make a left. A casual setting, great BBQ chicken.

Exotica and Citrus in Ojochal. It's a bit pricey but people like it.

Why ildi kohles chose Uvita

It just has great energy, waking up in the bed in the mornings with the sun rising behind the mountain and listening to the awakening wildlife, it's as good as it gets! :)
