Villa Toucan is a private ocean view and rainforest villa on the edge of the virgin rainforest where guests are immersed in an intense experience of wildlife and energy all in the comforts of tropical accommodations.





It is located within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge in Punta Uva on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica.


The house is 1 km from the turquoise colored waters of the Caribbean Sea where you can enjoy beautiful virgin beaches, snorkeling over the coral reefs, kayaking, wildlife hikes, horseback riding and just plainly relaxing.





Guests at Villa Toucan are assured to see dozens of toucans everyday in addition to several kinds of monkeys, sloths, colorful frogs, morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, countless varieties of birds and exotic insects.





We have cats at our main house next door, but they do not enter the bedrooms and always stay outside.





Designed as a vacation house for families and honeymoons, the villa comes fully equipped and can comfortably sleep up to 4 people. There are 2 bedrooms, each with its own private balcony, outdoor bathroom and private garden, a full kitchen, dining area, a wildlife terrace and a Hammock hut. Guests rent the entire house - whether you are one or four people.





Both bedrooms have 2 king size beds that can be converted into 2 twins if needed. Each bedroom has it's own private balcony overlooking the rainforest and large exterior outdoor bathrooms. The floors and cathedral ceilings are made of beautiful local hardwoods.





Both bedrooms come fully furnished with linens and pillows, beach and bathroom towels, clothing hangers, ceiling fans, a working desk, bedside tables and lamps, comforters for cool nights and hand picked literature on local topics of interest. There is also a hidden locked safe where you can protect your valuables.





We have 15 MG of high speed fiber optic internet for those who need to be connected in the beautiful tropics!





A 4x4 vehicle is recommended but NOT necessary. We do live up a steep hill, but should be perfectly fine with a regular car.

Though we are a 10 minute walking distance to the beach down our gravel road, we highly recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get to the property and around town. One can enjoy the property without a car, but most have been happy to have had one ;). Please ask if you have any doubts.

We have no neighbors! That's probably the biggest plus of staying at Villa Toucan. Privacy and tranquility and safety.

I have lived in Costa Rica Rica for 17 years. Moved down from Miami, though I am originally French. We bought the property with no road, no electricity, no house and no water. Basically started from scratch and built up my dream. I started and ran successful real estate agency, but recently decide changes were coming again - so sold it. I currently run a property management and vacation rental business in town. My passions including gardening, healthy cooking, music, people and photography. I live with my two daughters Maya Soleil and Sara Star.
