Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third and last day at Joyce's Casa Manana and it has been an exceptional experience! The home is beautifully designed and decorated with items Joyce has collected from around the world. This is not the usual stripped down rental property, rather it feels like your own home... only cooler! It's located in the rain forest and provides an excellent spot from which to watch birds and animals. This morning we ate breakfast and watched three black-mandibled toucans having their breakfast in the trees across the ravine. This afternoon, while we were relaxing in the swimming pool, we watched a troop of white-headed capuchin monkeys in those same trees. This really is paradise.

A wonderful place to relax!!

  • 5 of 5

My family, stayed for two weeks and the place was amazing! Joyce was a superb hostess, always helping with things to do and places to eat. It was close enough to the Costenera, to drive to town for groceries or dinner, but far enough away, to feel as though you were in your own jungle. Malania and her husband, NOT Donald, were there to help out and the place was impeccably clean. And of course, Amber and Daisy, the dogs, were great. The kids loved them and they knew when it was wine and cheese time, just like my dogs in the states!

Heavenly home

  • 4 of 5

The home and surroundings were beautiful. Everything was as described. Privacy was superb and the accommodations excellent. I would certainly return. The only issue was intermittent electrical power on the last day or so. Apparently the system had been renewed and may have had a residual issue. This would not deter me from going back again. Great host and also two sweet and friendly dogs lived on the property.

La mejor casa en Uvita!

  • 5 of 5

Esta casa es hermosa! Tuve la oportunidad de ir con familia y amigos, y desde que llegamos nos encantó. Se puede estar en contacto con la naturaleza, además la piscina estaá en el lugar indicado de la casa, ya que se adapta a esta. En las fotos se ve que es bastante grande pero una vez que uno está ahí es muy linda. No queríamos volver a la ciudad! La atención de la dueña desde que hablamos por correo fue excelente, muy simpática! La casa está súper equipada, solamente llevan su comida y listo! Espero poder volver pronto!

Great place to disconnect from the city!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! We stayed there for 3 nights and everyone of them was lovely.

It was easy to find and Joyce is a wonderful person, she really makes an effort of making everyone feel welcomed.

The Vila is very well equipped and I definitely would recommend it to my family and friends.

Map

The exotic colorful tropical gardens surrounding this property are an ongoing passion of mine. Palms, ferns, cordylines, crotons, gingers, torch gingers, shampoo gingers and many verities of ornamental. Including my prized collection of over 40 different heliconias.

Casa Manana is very secluded, surrounded by jungle but only ½ mile off the main highway. White face and howler monkeys frequent the property plus sloths, coatimundis, toucans, a variety of birds and whatever else happens by. And is a short distance from the beach.

Other Activities: Shelling, Wildlife viewing, boating, kayaking
