Casa Viva is a unique, and completely private "container" cabin to enjoy with your friends, family and loved ones. It is located in Bahia Ballena ("Whale Bay") on the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Surrounded by vast nature, you will enjoy the sounds of the brilliantly colored macaws and toucans, watch the monkeys up close, and may even spy a sloth in the trees, all while immersed in the tropical green lushness of the jungle but also a few steps from the beach.

“Our family of 5, my husband, cousin, toddler (2yr) , baby (11mo) and myself stayed here for one night. We checked in with Roy’s dad and he’s an incredible human being! He’s soooo sweet, attentive and with great tips. He showed us the place and how everything worked. We immediately fell in love with the house, it’s small but very comfortable. Very stylish and high tech. We enjoyed how close the place is to the beach and how quiet it was at night time. The house comes equipped with everything you’ll need from coffee, sugar to shampoo and body soap. At checkout Roy dad made sure we had everything and when I told him I desperately wanted a guanabana he showed me he’s tree and wanted to share the fruit with me but hadn’t ripen yet. 😔 was a great gesture though. I definitely recommend this place and if I ever come back to Costa Rica, will definitely look Roy up again!”
“While many things were closed or limited due to Covid conditions, Jose's place was so ideal as it is situated right above the path to the waterfall and we still had access to it, good thing, as it was certainly the highlight of my trip! He keeps things absolutely immaculate as well, so there really was no concern. He is very knowledgeable about the roads/ paths around the river area and drew us a map to find all the waterfalls we could! I brought my 9 month old puppy with me, who is still in training, and he was really patient with her, even when she was barking. The room itself is really spacious, having room for my dog’s crate along with all of our belongings and still plenty of space. It is quite safe there as well, having a security guard at night, so I felt confident about leaving the rental car there. Overall, I would definitely recommend a stay here and would certainly return!”
