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
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'.
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
“This place is Awesome! On site staff went above and beyond our expectations. We're definitely coming back next time. thanks Guys. ”
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.
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!
This is an absolutely beautiful, relaxing and high end vacation home! We were literally breathless making the trek up the mountain to get to Del Congos de Uvita and once we reached our destination, the view was spectacular. The accommodations were wonderful, including ocean views from every room of this poolside home. Each room was extremely comfortable and the home had everything we needed to cook and prepare any meals we wished. The home is well taken care of by the groundskeepers, Alex and Estephani, who were absolutely wonderful and took care of our every need. There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy lots of local activities including ziplining, horseback riding, fishing, a trip to the beach, shopping and much more. We recommend renting the vehicle that is available through this rental unless you come with your own 4x4. Nothing short of an amazing adventure and relaxing time. The day we returned from this vacation, we immediately booked another week with this same property owner at Del Congos de Uvita and can't wait to get back!
The location of this house is simply amazing. We woke our first morning to a barrel of monkeys in the trees outside our bedroom windows. The view down the mountain is even better when viewed from floating in the infinity pool.
Thank you Del, for sharing your home with us.
Del Congos is a beautiful property located high above the coast near the town of Uvita. The views are spectacular and the surrounding jungle is lush and full of colorful birds and other wildlife. The main house was perfect for three couples with a master bedroom on the upper level and two nice sized bedrooms on the main level. Each has their own private bath. The kitchen is in the center of the house and the eating and other common areas are outside under a nice shaded patio area overlooking the pool. There is a second home which was vacant when we were there. It is located down a hill below the main home and the two are far enough apart where privacy would still be good. The property is clean and very well maintained by the caretakers, Alex and Estephany, who live in a casita onsite. We rented the Toyota Prado from the owner and hired Alex to be our driver for the week so we wouldn't have to worry about directions or driving up and down the steep hill. Alex was very gracious and willing to do whatever he could to make our vacation a great experience. It was helpful to have someone in our group who knew some Spanish, but Alex and Estephany are both very friendly and happy to assist with restaurant suggestions, etc. We did a fair amount of hiking up and down the road outside the property gate, which was a great workout and also offered some additional amazing views. There are several beautiful beaches in and around Uvita, some of which have restaurants nearby or others that are undeveloped. All were great for walking or swimming. We also went on the zipline tour (recommended) and did some snorkeling. Overall, a great place for a relaxing, laid-back vacation.
Del Congos was a great escape from our cold Canadian winter. Beautiful grounds and a nice pool to relax after exploring the surrounding area. You do need to plan your day so that you minimize the number of trips up and down the road. We were fortunate to have howler monkeys nest in the trees right beside the house for two days during our stay. Lots of toucans as well as other birds. As others have commented, the caretakers are a fantastic couple. Some other members of my family rented Del's second house on the same property and it was close enough to easily walk between the two yet we could still maintain our privacy. You won't be disappointed with this selection.
