About this listing

Located right on Punta Uva beach, this oceanfront property is located on 2.5 acres of land including a main residence with 2 king beds, 4 double beds and 2 bunk beds on distributed across 6 rooms and 6 bathrooms! Ample social space with deck overlooking the river. Additionally, it offers a gazeebo and bbq area, and small dock. Great for large families and friends!

The space

Located in one of the most beautiful and exotic areas of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, Reloj de Arena can accommodate a large family or several couples. The home is in the middle of a lush 2.5+ acre property, which ensures absolute privacy and tranquility. Howler monkeys, toucans, parrots, hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds can be seen daily.

The property has a strategic location: 10 minute car drive to Puerto Viejo (bank, pharmacy, supermarket) or Manzanillo (cozy town with amazing restaurants), and 20 min drive to Cahuita National Park, and it is surrounded by several great restaurants and local shops. The property connects directly with the white sand beach of Punta Uva (1 minute walk through our private trail). Plenty of deck space which faces the river/canal to the north provides an ideal setting for barbecues, relaxing afternoon or just family time.

The property is surrounded by the river on the west, and the main road on the east, with the gazebo/jacuzzi with a BBQ right in front on the way to the beach. Every room has ceiling fans and the house is very well ventilated. In total there are 6 rooms and 5 bathrooms, including a deck overlooking the river. The area is perfect for ecotourism since it is surrounded by lush rainforests; it is a nature lover's paradise!

Great place, their environmental commitment is very serious which is great but having green water pouring out of the kitchen's tube is not nice...even though we know we are not supposed to drink from there...the tanks in the exterior should be cleaned or the water filtered in a better way to avoid that image. Otherwise...the animals walking through the porch or the proximity to the beach is great. I would go again.

Absolutely amazing. Looks exactly as pictured. Cruz was extremely helpful, the daily cleaning fee is completely worth it, and the store across the street supplies every need. About a 2 minute walk to the beach along a private path, which has little to no tourists and a cute vendor along with kayaks you can rent for $5 to use in the adjacent river and ocean itself for 90 minutes. We loved the house; it has a ton of open space/porches so 12-16 people can fit very comfortably. Our only complaint is that we couldn't spend more time here!!

This place is amazing. It is right in front of the beach and the property has a dense forrest full of monkeys. Reloj de Arena has a great location too, it is close to restaurants and shops. Next time I go to Puerto Viejo, I'll be revisiting this place for sure.

This property is a bit rustic but really beautiful and secluded and private, a real jungle lodge with a really great and well stocked convenience store across the street ( be sure to go by between 7:30 and 8 am when she gets fresh bread delivered, the pita is the best you will find anywhere). There are also really good restaurants within walking distance. Bamboocha was one of our favorites. Sitting on the large outdoor deck with binoculars, we enjoyed seeing all sorts of wildlife (i.e. howler monkeys, sloths, giant iguanas, and a kinkajou)! There is also a really nice, large outdoor space to BBQ and sit outside to eat. It's a great space for a large group to spend time together, especially if you like rustic and natural beauty. About a mile from the property towards Puerto Viejo, is the Jaguar Rescue Center, not to be missed.

We had a really great time at Reloj de Arena. We were lucky to see so much wildlife. There was a Congo monkey family the first couple days we were there. We also saw three sloths, a guatusa, an iguana, a river turtle, and multiple tropical fish when we went snorkeling. We also went fishing and kayaking. The beach is extraordinarily beautiful and about 75 yards down a beautiful pathway. The amenities and size are great for family and friends and Cruz was a very attentive and pleasant host. We will definitely have to visit again.
