The River House provides you with maximum privacy while only a short drive from all the necessities and tourist attractions. If you feel like just relaxing at home, you will love the private 35m2 saltwater pool and pool house guaranteed.
The River House is nestled in a very private 1.5 acres tropical garden, only 5 minutes from downtown Uvita, the national park and beach of Ballena as well as Playa Hermosa and a fast array of restaurants and tourist attractions. The house with its adjoining guest cabin fits 6 people (3 queen size beds) and features a 35m2 salt-water pool with a big outside recreational area to play ping-pong, relax or just enjoy nature. A guard lives nearby on premises to ensure your 24 hour security.
The house sits right next to the Higueron River, which allows for perfect wildlife watching right from the leisure of the deck, bedroom or living room. At dry season, you can also hike up the river or down to the ocean.
Pick your breakfast from the own exotic fruit featuring banana, mango, lemon, orange, avocado and guava trees or start your day with a peaceful Yoga session by the pool. Whether you like watching toucans, parrots or monkeys straight from the comfort of the hammock or prefer to have an action filled day surfing, ATV-ing or whale watching, you will find the River House to be your perfect vacation rental.

Our caretaker and local property manager will be able to help you when you are there. I will coordinate all before and during your stay :-)
All in all booking with Simone was great, shortly after our arrival there were a couple of things that we were not expecting but Simone was was very understanding and made the necessary adjustments to make our holiday one to remember. Even though she was not there in person, she dealt with the situation quickly and fairly , she was great to deal with.
Thanks Simone, Paul and Nancy.
Amazing property! We are pretty sure we got bitten by bed bugs though. Had to leave the property or the last two night of our stay. Simone is going to be looking into our concern when she goes to the river house in a few weeks time. July 2013
Simone has a wonderful house in a great location. It is very remote and peaceful. Since it is located off the mountain, be sure to have a 4x4 to get over the roads. Great location and great place to stay in.
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We were delighted with our stay at the River house. We stayed for one month with three adults and two kids. It was perfect for us. It was very quiet and peaceful. Gomar and Ceceil the caretakers were such a delight and were always available to help whenever we needed it and at the same time they gave us all the privacy we needed. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Including fresh fruit from the trees.
The house was a great design for the hot humid weather and we were able to be comfortable even without air conditioning. The cabin with the air con was a great private space for one of us who was working on a book and needing a little more cool tempratures and undisturbed space from the kids,
The pool was great and we were all in it a few times a day. The pool was kept nice and clean. We had quiet yoga sessions and meditation by the pool each morning and it was a great place to cool off in the day.
We rented a car for the first week and got our barrings and then we got around by walking, buses and taxis the rest of the time (as cars were sooo expensive to rent) Walking to town to catch the bus to the beach was only about 20 minutes and a taxi was about $3.00-$5.00 one way (depending on the driver)
We would have liked to have had WIFI as our connection with our USB with KOLBI was less then ideal connection and very slow. This was our biggest challenge at the house.
We also would have loved the house to have been more stocked with new sheets and kitchen supplies as it seemed very bare minimum. Definitly would expect a house in costa rica to come with a blender...who lives in costa rica without a daily smoothy ???
The landscaping of the place is beautiful and well kept by Gomar the caretaker with great attention to detail and open hearted JOy. We loved the feeling of the energy that was holding this land.
Mi estadia en la River House, fue maravillosa, es un lugar sumamente tranquilo y lleno de vida natural, un lugar de paz con la naturaleza, las instalaciones de la casa son sumamente comodas y acogedoras.
Durante el dia es calido y se complementa con el sonido del rio y la picina, y para la noche es un lugar fresco y adecuado para caminar y compartir con los acompañantes,
Personalmente en la noche lo disfrute con mi familia dentro de la casa en una sala amplia, las habitaciones son de lo mejora.
Ademas el afintrion Don Gumercindo es una persona que hace lo que necesite para que los huespedes no olviden estas vacaciones, Don Gumercindo es sumamente amble y lleno de ganas de colaborar.
Sencillamente felicito a Simone por la oportunidad que ofrece de conocer este lugar
Gracias de nuevo
