Some of our guests with kids stay for a few months, and take advantage of this cute private school in Uvita. Here is a video capturing some essence of this.
Evelyn stayed with us in August 2014.
Great house: spacious, comfartable, wifi, airco. Nice veranda with a hammock. Great view. Secluded. And the pool was, especially for the children, great, also at night when it was dark and the lights of the pool were on. The housekeeper made us feel very welcome! A pity we don't speak any spanish. .
Diana stayed with us August 2015.
Casa Verde Uvita was a wonderful place to stay at and explore the Ballena Marina National Park. The house itself is super charming, very nicely decorated and very clean. The veranda with full size table and hammock were our favorite features -- we were actually very entertained with the bug eating geckos that hunt in the rafters, as well as the praying mantis gang that came every night! The pool was delightful and very refreshing (it will be especially nice with all the plants around it grow in some more). It was very, very hot the week we were there and the air conditioning worked great, but we were grateful for the screens on all the windows so we could open them and enjoy the cooler night air and sounds. Everything was perfect there, including the property managers Gumer and Cecilia -- not only did they take our group on a hike to the nearby waterfalls, Cecilia also cooked for us a few nights, which was a welcome respite after a beach outing. All five of us (two adults and three teenagers) stayed at Casa Verde for five nights, and our friends (also five people ) stayed at the neighboring River House. A perfect set up.
Regina stayed with us in September 2015.
Wir verbrachten 3 Tage in der schönen Casa Verde, wo wir vom ausschließlich spanischsprachigen "Hausmeister" Gumercindo und seiner Frau Cecilia mit einem frischen Blumenstrauß begrüßt wurden. Sie waren beide sehr herzlich und freuten sich offensichtlich, dass sie sich mit uns auf Spanisch verständigen konnten. Das großzügige Haus - sehr sauber und tadellos in Schuss - mit seinen zahlreichen Sitzgelegenheiten war wunderbar zum Abschalten und in die Natur Lauschen. Das Erwachen des Regenwalds ließ sich morgens um 5.30 Uhr am besten in der Hängematte auf der Terrasse genießen! Und der Pool war nachts mit Beleuchtung am schönsten! Um zur Casa Verde zu gelangen, ist auf jeden Fall ein Allradfahrzeug notwendig! Der Weg zum Haus ist eigentlich einfach zu finden, allerdings nicht mit der gegebenen Wegbeschreibung ... Kurz gesagt heißt das: Beim großen S und dem Schild "Hotel Vista Ballena" (vormals "Whales & Dolphins") bergwärts abbiegen, bis zur "Casa Ballena" (nicht das Hotel!) fahren und kurz danach scharf links abbiegen. Dann die zweite Abbiegung beim grün angemalten Felsen rechts sehr steil hoch und wieder runter und schon ist man da. :-)
Sofia stayed with us in September 2015.
The owner was very helpful with the instructions to get to the house. He provided all we needed before and during our trip. My family and I enjoyed so much the stayed at Casa Verde... its cozyness, design, that hammock is extremely delightful and everything was clean and nice. the rooms are bigger than appear in the photos. I would recommend Casa Verde and would love to stay again! The area of Uvita, is spectacular a very unique and non crowded place, where you can really get a close impression of the "Pura Vida" lifestyle. As Costarican I may say this would be a very authentic place to stay in our country. And Casa Verde an excellent choice if you are looking to a mountain view, beach, tranquility and silence.
I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
