What makes this House unique
The property offers one to enjoy a breathtaking rain forest property that offers some of the most incredible sites (More than a handful of 100 foot waterfalls , rivers and hiking trails) in all of the South Pacific. Even the local Costa Ricans are surprised on visits to the property as it is truly one of a kind.

Damage and incidentals

It is such a privilege that we were able to enjoy this property in Costa Rica. We have a 15 month old daughter, so i was truly a bit nervous when i plan this trip. But Im so glad we did it. If you looking for a paradise to unplug from the reality, just connect with your family and the nature, this is the place to go. It is a combination of pure untouched nature with modern comfort if you need it. The state of art architecture has everything you need, A/C, blinds and pano view of the whole jungle around you. Well, you live in the jungle, so internet or electricity outage can happen, but it is not the biggest deal to us at all. Banti and Martin are more worried than we actually do, they will do anything to make your comfortable and try to solve any tiny issues you may have. We saw monkeys, Tucans and so many beautiful creatures that we can't name. One day, it was pouring in the rain forest, my husband and me enjoyed a little lunch on the balcony, it was a life-time experience, better than any Michelin restaurants we ever been. Private, Romantic, you are in the nature and nature is in you. we also went to the big waterfall after the rain, it was just spectacular. It is also fairly convenient, within 5-10 mins bumpy drive, ( we opened the window with the breeze and forest sound, baby always fall asleep during this drive), you'll in the town where you get access to great food and grocery for the day. Another 5 mins drive maybe, you are at the beach. We only went to the Playa Pinuellas in the morning during the low tide. One of the most beautiful beaches i have ever seen in my life. I know you will do a lot of research before you pick your spot in costa rica, but glad you read my review, and hope this will help you to make your decision for your stay.
This home is simply beautiful. Love the architecture. It’s very well cared for and extremely clean. The gardens are beautiful as well. The morning sun can be intense for the first hour or so but that is a great time to walk or drive to the private waterfall or swimming hole. You can spend the rest of the day enjoying the fantastic view. Banti was always available if we had a question. Note, the road to the home is very steep so have a good 4x4 vehicle.
Almost in the Clouds
This house is truly amazing.
- The views are incredible. You have a southern view with the mountain rainforest to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and you can see all the way to Corcovado to the south.
- The house feels like something from a Bond film and has a great layout that ensures every room takes advantage of the view
- Host is very helpful and very responsive
- On site house manager is very nice and helpful
- Great swimming hole and 2 waterfalls on the property
- Great local food options at Sud and Citrus
- 15 minutes to Uvita town and beach, we booked a whale/dolphin watching and snorkeling tour from here
- 30 minutes to Dominical a great little town for food and surfing (eat breakfast at Mono Congo)
- 1 hour drive to Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park
- 2 hours to Jaco
- 4 hours to San Jose (unless you drive it late at night with zero traffic, then only 3 hrs)
Neutrals (no Cons):
No "downsides" to the house, but a few things you should know:
- Rent a 4x4 and get it well in advance from a reputable agency, you will need it
- The drive from the main road is long and bumpy, it's a commitment to get in and out, but totally worth it
- The howler monkeys will wake you up
- You are in the jungle, there will be insects
- The house is 10 years old and not pristine, but still beautiful and everything works great...hot water, a/c, kitchen, etc
Overall, a great spot and staying here was a big part of what my 14 and 17 year old teenage girls called the best vacation ever.
A Destination itself!
This home is a destination on it's own! You know how, when you look at the photos of an advertised place, many times it doesn't really look like that when you get there? When we looked at the pictures of this house, we could not believe it could really be this great. But when we arrived? This place was far beyond our expectations. Glass everywhere! Glass in all directions. The mountains. The jungle. The ocean. Top of the world! Fantastic. I got up every morning before sunrise to listen to the jungle. You can hear Howler Monkeys in many directions. Toucans and many other birds. It's as if you are in the focal point. And it's all yours.
Martin (Marteen), or on site concierge was there for whatever we needed.
There's a swimming hole in the Quebrada Tortugrita (Little Turtle Creek), A refreshing place in the tropical jungle. There were Fresh Water Shrimp and lots of fish. (Take you mask and Snorkel). It was all ours!
This is an awesome place.
You can cook for yourself or you can go to town. Everywhere we went, the food was excellent with great value as well.
I highly recommend this fantastic home.
Stunning magnificent experience
One of a kind experience at a one-of-a-kind location. The best of Costa Rica. You will never forget this place. The owner and his staff are completely available for your enjoyment. The view is spectacular and I doubt there is a place to stay that has a more awesome view than this. Every room has a breathtaking view. It’s even better than what is advertised. Highly highly recommend!!
