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!
Interaction with guests
I am always available by phone but Cruz the housekeeper is always on hand to help with anything you may need!
Location! We are right in front of Punta Uva beach, one of the few remaining beachfront properties that is not a hotel.
Parking is ample inside the property. Public transport is rudimentary, we recommend getting a car to get the most out of the beach circuit. 4x4 not necessary, as the road is in great shape!
