About The Owner

I moved here from Sarasota Florida around 11 years ago. I designed my home to optimize living with nature, which is the reason I was so attracted to this property. I knew that I wanted to share this special place with others, which is why the house was designed sort of like a compound, with separate destination points and privacy in mind. I love animals and plants, all things of beauty. The picture of myself here is with a howler monkey that I raised from the time of her mothers death, she was only about 2 weeks old when she was brought to me. She stayed with almost 5 years and I slowly was able to introduce her to the jungle and other monkeys. She now lives free and has her own baby! This was one of the grandest experiences I have had here.

Why The Owner chose Puntarenas

This area has a very healing energy about it and the beauty is unsurpassed. The location feels like you are far away from it all, yet I have easy access to all my needs, like hospital, shopping, great restaurants, tours, beaches and fun things to do.

What makes this house unique

Being able to witness the wildlife and beauty of nature all around me. Incredible breezes and cooling rains in the evening. Waking to the sounds of the waves breaking and howler monkeys is just paradise to me. Watching the sun shine on the water drops left by the nights rain, making it look like diamonds have fallen on the jungle at night. No distractions other than the beauty of the jungle and ocean.

Beautiful Tropical Home

  • 5 of 5

We made a great choice by staying with Dale in her beautiful home in Uvita. The main house is lovely, and our accommodations were great. We especially appreciated the recommendations for restsurants and things to do in the area. We would definitely recommend this home as a great place to stay in the Uvita area.

A Beautiful Home in the Jungle very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The home is very cool and a great place to relax and explore this great area of Costa Rica. The beaches just down hill from this home are very secluded and private and the next town south is has absolutely amazing restaurant !!! Also nice dancing scene on Friday night ! Best part of this home is the owner Dale, she is so welcoming and cool . Gave us great advise where to go and was super hospitable ! Would definitely recommend Casa Tranquila !!!!!

Lives up to it's name!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 nights while exploring the Uvita area. Dale and Sean were very friendly and welcoming. It's definitely very relaxing - I swam in the pool just about everyday and enjoyed the spectacular view everyday over breakfast. Everything was as described - our room was very comfortable. We used the kitchen to make dinner a couple of nights and had great conversations with our hosts. Dale set us up with a zip lining tour which was fabulous and was so knowledgeable about everything the area had to offer which is a huge benefit. Loved our stay and enjoyed the company :-)

Owner's Response: We love having guest who are considering a move to Costa Rica some time in their future. Wish you could have stayed longer as there is so much more to do and see here. I am so glad you felt comfortable here and hope that you will return in the future, maybe with a longer stay...

Beauty and Luxury in an exotic setting

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from three fantastic weeks at Casa Tranquilla on Costa Rica's beautiful Pacific coast. I can honestly say that the photos we saw of the property before making our selection do not do justice to the beauty, privacy, add splendor of this magnificent place! Our expectations were exceeded on every front by Dale and Shaun! This was our third visit to Costa Rica and it just keeps getting better! I highly recommend that anyone visiting this fantastic country should not try to see it all at once. Even in a small place like Uvita there is so much to do and see! The view from the Rancho alone is breathtaking! We look forward to our return next year!

My property backs up to Primary Rain Forest, you can walk and explore without having to take a tour. There is also a wonderful Canopy Tour and Waterfall Tour near by and Ultra Light Plane tours. I also have many books to share and hammocks to relax if you are not an adventure seeker. Sunsets down at the beach are wonderful and very close by. The only rip tide free beach is right below my home a short distance away to the entrance.
