Simply incredible

  • 5 of 5

I don’t know where to start. Alex and Stephanie were amazing and so accommodating. The house is immaculate and has everything you need. The views were sweeping and from the upstairs bedroom it felt like you were sleeping on top of the world. For those who said the road was bad, it wasn’t if you’ve ever driven up a hill before. Just make sure you have 4wd as you should whenever visiting Costa Rica. Del and his wife gave so many amazing recommendations that I cannot thank them enough. This was truly an experience we won’t forget and will definitely rent from Del for our next visit!!!

Amazing place & unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

What a place. It is awesome staying right in the jungle. We were able to experience tucans, monkeys, butterflies and so much more amazing wildlife right from the pool.

Beautiful house with great views. The caretaker's, Alex & Estephany, we're so welcoming & helpful.

Definitely recommend renting Del's car. The drive up the mountain was a piece of cake with his vehicle, but it wouldn't be possible without a good 4wd vehicle.

Uvita was a great town with so many exciting things to do.

We went during July, which is during a lighter period of the rainy season. The weather was so perfect, I would almost prefer it. The mornings were beautiful, then some days it lightly rained in the late afternoon and cleared up at night. The temp was not too hot, & mosquitos were non existent.

I would highly recommend to anyone and wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful spot, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of four. Very comfortable, beautiful view, and the house had everything we needed. Alex and Stephanie were lovely, and made us feel well taken care of. Del sent us lots of information before we came, so we knew what to expect. The one challenge was the road to the house. Very steep, hairpin turns, made of loose rocks and dirt. We got pretty good at navigating it but tried to get home before dark to avoid driving it then. Overall we loved our trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Del Congos Exotica. Only the main roads are paved in Costa Rica and our house has an exceptional view because of the position on the mountain. we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that Alex and Estephany took care of all your needs . We hope that you can join us again and remember we also have the second house if you'd like to bring more family .

Fantastic place as a base in Uvita

  • 5 of 5

Dels Congos exotica was the perfect place for 2 couples in Uvita. The views are awesome and the wildlife was great. Toucans everyday and monkeys quite a few days (howlers and capuchins). The house was very well set up with everything you need. The drive up the mountain was an adventure, but by the end of the week it was old hat. Alex and Estephanie are a wonderful couple ready and willing to always help with genuine good humour. We had them do dinner for us on our 1st and last night. Highly recommended!

If you like to hike, I suggest going up the mountain. It's a gentler grade rewarded with great views. We did walk down to town once...make sure you have strong knees😀

Uvita itself is a great base for the area, very functional and friendly.

The only suggestion I can think of to improve the experience would be to expand on the outdoor seating, maybe a love seat and a couple of chairs.

Would highly recommend this place to anyone except physically challenged (stairs and steep grades) or small kids (no shallow end in pool)

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us at "Del Congos Exotica". It sounds like you really enjoyed the privacy and unique combination of 13 acres of Primary Jungle (almost all rental homes are in Secondary Jungle) and 50 miles of Expansive Ocean Views. I am glad that you enjoyed all the wildlife because I have been told they love primary Jungle also thus the reason you saw so many. Yes, Alex and Estephany really enjoy cooking for our guests and making them feel welcome. I really appreciate your comment on adding a love seat and some chairs to the outside terrace however that would mean removing the 4 comfortable chaise lounge chairs which most people love to sit in swimming suits and relax on. Of course the 20X20 living room has couches and chairs, as well as super large patio doors and windows that open which gives the feeling of being outside when open. The Lap pool does have steps for young ones and the infinity edge also has a step so young adults can stand on them and view the ocean. On behalf of my staff and I , we sincerely hope you will return to visit again.

Would NEVER go back...

  • 1 of 5

This property is very difficult to get to. The owner offers his 4x4 for a very steep price. When we arrived we realized there was no cable/satellite or air conditioning as advertised. The water takes for ever to get hot. The infinity pool did not work. The TV had lines going through it. The caretaker had to bring down a small one from the other house. The power went out one afternoon for 6 hours. We had no matches or candles. You can't put paper in the toilets. One toilet did not work at all for the entire week. I have been to Costa Rica two other times and have never experienced so many issue!!!

Owner's Response: There is a full-time couple(available 24/7) that lives in another house on our 13 ½ acre estate that is dedicated to helping clients with any issues they may have. The house is only 1 year old and is maintained very well by our staff. We have Hot water on demand , it takes 6-8 seconds to travel from the water heater to the shower, I am sorry if that appears to be forever. In all of Costa Rica, there are receptacles in all bathrooms for “all paper waste” . We recommend a strong 4X4 vehicle to everyone who travels in Costa Rica as the entire country is mountainous and 80% gravel roads. I offer my Turbo Diesel Toyota Prado (Lexus 460) 8 passenger for rent to clients so they will feel comfortable on any Costa Rican roads. Naturally , it is always more expensive price than a Daihatsu Bego which they rented . I warned her weeks before her stay she would not be happy with the cheapest 4X4. We are the 1st property of an International Development of 30 Luxury Homes and a $700/night Boutique Hotel. The roads are well maintained by our private road association. The client stated that the infinity edge pool didn’t work. There are no working parts in an infinity edge pool . You fill water to the edge and when viewing it (with the Ocean in the background) , the water appears to connect with the Ocean. Costa Rica is still a 3rd World Country thus the Electrical Grid is under developed and occasionally has power outages and surges which I found out damaged the TV causing lines. We provided a replacement Tv which was not as large as the Original . We have since replaced the TV with a New 50” Smart TV which can access the Internet . Alex the caretaker said that the power went out at 2:00 in the afternoon and thus Client had 4 ½ hours to locate the candles and matches we provide. Client could not find matches so she emailed me the following: “We will seek retribution” Please read the other reviews for a true perspective of our lovely home!
