CASA DE LA TREPADA is an Ideally located, comfortable cottage - fully equipped in the middle of the surrounding rainforest - just 300 meters far away from the wonderful beaches of Punta Uva and the Caribe Sur.

La Casa de la Trepada is a great vacation getaway for couples, families and groups of friends. It's a rustic, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two storey house, fully equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, telephone, internet and Possibility of a wonderful verandah ...

The cottage is situated 200 feet above beach level, enjoying refreshing breezes, and the gentle sound of the ocean. And innovatively designed by the owners, the cottage is light and airy, featuring many architectural details and warmly decorated with Spanish tile tecnic called TRENCADIS. You will enjoy beautiful sunsets sitting in the verandah, Which is an ideal place to take a rest, write a book or just do nothing.

The beaches are a 3-4 minute walk downhill - or drive and park right next to the water at one of several spots where the sea is safe for swimming and snorkeling in the reefs just offshore. Monkeys, sloths, toucans and parrots are all regular visitors, and you will wake up each morning to the sounds of the rainforest wildlife in all its glory!

Rising Home on the Hill

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home in the Punta Uva area. It is an interesting and well crafted home; beautiful wood throughout, lovely and fun bathrooms, and the porches and windows are the BEST. I also really enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, with the windows wide open. I had an easy time cooking meals with just about anything I needed present. Great to have a clothes washer to use! The owner and caretaker were helpful, kind, and responsive as well. I would recommend this home to those who are one or two couples on a trip, or a small family (4). Nearby restaurants were good (try Selvin's), and easy to grocery shop in the nearby villages.... if there is no drinking water at the house, you can borrow the 5 gallon container and take it to a local shop to trade in for the next bottle. Finally, we really loved the monkeys, the birds!!!!!, and being in the forest rather than right on the beach. The beach area to the north of Punta Uva is a little bit of a scene, though Punta Uva is quiet and peaceful; for us, we loved being up the hill (yes it is steep but very walkable) from the beach as it is true that we got cooling breezes that one would not experience beach side. We also stayed on the Pacific side of CR on our trip, and for our next visit to CR, we will skip that, and head right to the Caribbean and this house. We had a very peaceful, wonderful stay in this lovely home. One last word to anyone driving here: there is crazy truck traffic from San Jose to Limon on HWY32. As you get closer to Limon you can avoid some of it by taking the little cut off side road (I think it is #270 or #271) from HWY 32 south to Santa Rosa and Beverly, then rejoin coastal HWY 36. This will spare you the parking lot effect of massive numbers of semi-trucks entering Limon. Once you get to the coast, and headed south, the road is excellent and the vibe much more peaceful and easy going.

Nos encantó la casa

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos unas vacaciones inolvidables, la casa es muy privada, tiene una vista espectacular de la selva, queda muy cerca de la playa, restaurantes y mercados, Miguel nos ayudó mucho durante nuestra estancia. Definitivamente volveremos. Ya habíamos rentado en Punta Uva en 6 ocasiones anteriores pero creo que la casa de la trepada fue la mejor
