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 Puntarenas

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 as verified by our Internet provider.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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

Why do we rent houses instead of staying in a hotel? Because we kind of hate being pushed around by hotel staff and we kind of hate going out to eat for every meal. So we are a little odd in that we want to take charge of certain aspects of our vacation that normal people want to leave behind. We want to do a little laundry and cook a good meal right? I mean I like to sweep the floor and get the sand out of my space at the end of the day. So that's why we choose VRBO. It's nice to have the comforts of home while you are on vacation. OK so laying that out there, I have one comment about this house to sum up the whole place. This house has sharp cooking knives! That's the level of detail we are talking about here. If your host has the frame of mind to provide excellent cooking knives, you can rest assured that everything else will be provided.

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

Renting this villa is and was one of the best vacation experiences I have been able to share with my family. Can't say enough about the ambience, location and accomodations to make this such a memorable trip. On site support staff was excellent, helpful and available. What a paradise of sight and sound! For those who like being off the beaten path, this is the place to be. All the activity and dining recommendations were spot on. Spectacular sunsets are the norm and the food choices worth a little travel. La Parcela, Hacinda Baru, Marina Bellina, the list goes on for all the things to do. My family is already clamoring for a return trip. I would recommend this property unreservedly! I know reviews like this are hard to believe but all I can say is you have to experience it because some things are hard to put into words. PS. I do have the pictures to prove it!

Owner's Response: Paul, It was a pleasure to share my retirement estate with you and your family. I believe planning a vacation to an unfamiliar destination can be difficult and that is why I personally get so involved in helping my guests to "make it a trip of a lifetime". From offering airport pickup , tour booking, favorite restaurants list, and even renting my car to them. I am constantly working on training my staff to provide the best service as well as constantly adding amenities to my home. Your review is testimony that my hard work as well as my staffs is living up to and exceeding my guests expectations. I look forward to helping you plan your next stay at "Del Congos de Uvita"

Rustic, scenic, clean!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Del,

Had a great time staying at your place. We all enjoyed your property and everything that was available to do so close. My favorite thing was the waterfall right between your house and Uvita. Sometimes we had the falls all to ourselves. We enjoyed walking out to the Whale’s Tail and trying to time the tide. Fishing trip was fun for some of us…not so fun for others (if you know what I mean).

As far as your place goes, Estephany and Alex were great! Your 13 acres has an abundant of wildlife to include; Tucans, Howler Monkeys, exotic frogs, parrots, coati, etc. We spent much time exploring to include enjoying the wonderful view. There was nothing that affected our stay and we enjoyed everything. It was very nice having the kitchen and the grill. We also appreciated the tour that Alex gave us of your other unit. Very Nice!

I enjoyed having the bakery and the grocery store at the bottom of the hill. Several nearby Restaurants to choose from when we wanted to dine out from fancy to pizza was nice too.

Hopefully you found that we respected your property and treated it like it was our own. You were absolutely right on needing a strong 4x4 vehicle. Your vehicle did the job for the entire stay.

We found that June was a very nice time of year for this trip. Although it rained every day, it did not affect anything we wanted to do.

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your facility. You have a gem there for sure.

Mike

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing " Del Congos de Uvita" Luxury Rental house on 13 1/2 acres of Primary Jungle with 50 Mile Ocean Coastline View. I enjoyed helping you plan and reserve your Deep sea fishing, Snorkeling, and Zipline tours. Many people underestimate that Costa Rica is entirely steep mountains with many gravel roads and thus the absolute need to rent my Vehicle which is designed to handle this beautiful and adventurous environment . There is so much to do in the Uvita area that many wish they had booked 2 weeks instead of one. Our staff has been trained to pay attention to details that meet American standards. Many comment that they have never rented a house so spotless and when they arrange (Extra charge)for the "Welcome Meal" prepared by our chef , the most common comment is " Best meal in Costa Rica!". Our unique setting surrounded by Primary Jungle (others homes are in Secondary Forest or no trees at all) is the reason our for the abundance of wildlife!

Great Adventure

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica. The people are so nice and the country is beautiful! We enjoyed our stay at Del's house. Alex and Stefanie ( caretakers) were super nice. I was a little concerned about no AC, but it was OK. The evenings really got cool We did have rain every day. Just learned to get out early because around 3pm, showers would start. The drive up the hill was quite an adventure! When they say you need 4x drive, they mean it! We did rent the owners vehicle. Don't be afraid to explore, there are a lot of beaches to find. We did the ATV tour and that was awesome! . We arranged transportation to and from the airport, the ATV excursion, and the vehicle thru the owner, it all worked out like clockwork. No problems at all. We did lose water at the house for a while, but it was fixed the next day. Hope this helps. It really is an awesome country to see.

Del Congos - Uvita Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Very unique setting with a wonderful view. Del did a great job setting us up for this vacation! This house was set up perfectly for 3 couples. Alex and Stephanie (who live on the property) took great care of our group. We discovered that June was a great time to take this vacation. Although it rained nearly everyday, the timing of this rain did not interrupt any of our activities. Del's 13 acres allowed for us to have our own wildlife sanctuary. Parrots, Toucans, frogs, and Holler Monkeys were abundant. Several activities to include beaches and waterfalls were within minutes of the property. The view of the Whale's tale was spectacular. I would definitely do this trip again, but you will need to rent an extremely strong 4 x 4 vehicle. Del has one available for rent.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Del Congos de Uvita was fantastic. The 3-bedroom luxury villa provided the prefect Costa Rican experience. The immaculate villa was located in a jungle like setting providing incredible views of the Whale’s Tail. The drive to the villa requires a 4-wheel vehicle, but the drive is well worth the experience. The town, approximately 15 minutes from the villa, provided access to restaurants, beaches, and other small towns. Based on Del’s recommendations, we were able to secure a great rental car and advance book horseback riding to the waterfalls and an ATV tour. If you have time during your stay, I would recommend both. The property managers, Alex and Stephanie were perfect. They were very helpful and assisted with addressing our questions and needs during the stay. This place comes with top recommendations. I hope to return in the near future. Thank you Del, Stephanie, and Alex for the awesome experience.
