About this listing
3 Casitas on the River banks with Queen sized bed, kitchenette & luxury bathroom. Sit on your porch and listen to the relaxing sound of the river tinkling by, and watch the hummingbirds flying by the heliconia in your beautiful jungle retreat
"Casitas Del Rio" (little houses on the river)
We offer 3 individual studio-style casitas, on the river near the Pacific ocean. We are located near Playa Uvita, a small coastal beach town. Each casita sleeps 2 people, so if there are 2, 4, or 6 people in your party, you can rent 1, 2, or all 3 casitas.
Each casita has a queen bed, dining table for 2, bathroom, and a small kitchenette complete with dishes and utensils, a 2 burner stove-top, mini-fridge, microwave oven, toaster, coffeemaker, juicer and sink.
Hidden in a private cove on the Morete River, surrounded by forests and nestled between tall mountains and the sea, our casitas offer tranquil river views and sounds of Mother Nature right from your porch. Bring your camera and binoculars -- flora and fauna abounds and surrounds. Each casita has all the comforts of home - a kitchenette, a quality queen bed and linens, a/c, hot water, and wi-fi.
Outside, surrounded by 2 acres of tropical gardens, each casita has a covered porch with a magical view of the river and forest. Listen to the sounds of the jungle, watch the toucans fly from tree to tree, dip your toes in the cool clean river right in front of your porch, or hike up-river to discover the natural swimming holes and a hidden waterfall.
We are conveniently located only 1 kilometer off the main paved Costanera highway. Our location offers quick and easy access to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and adventures. From your casita it is a 5 minute drive to the small town of Uvita and the lovely beaches of Playa Ballena, Playa Colonia, and Playa Hermosa. Dominical, the infamous surf town with its funky bohemian-beach-bar-surfer-dude vibe, is only a 10 minute drive north.
Come and rest, relax, escape and enjoy a perfect little get-away. Do as much or as little as you like

About the Host, Rachel And Steve
Hello we are Rachel and Steve, your hosts and very proud owners of Casitas Del Rio.
Having both recently retired from the British Army (Rachel as an Education and Training Officer and Steve as a Sports and Recreational Manager), we were searching for our next big adventure. We both love meeting new people, hearing their interesting stories and having new experiences.
In our personal life and careers we travelled to many places around the world and dreamed of finding the perfect place to settle down and combine our interest in people and nature and own a boutique guest house. Leaving the British Army after 26 years, Steve joined the Australian Army and served 3 years. On leaving Australia, in preparation for our next move, he re-trained as a professional butler at The International Butler Academy in the Netherlands. He was then employed at the world renowned Savoy hotel in London as a personal Butler to the rich and famous dealing with Royalty and Hollywood stars from around the world. His professional service as a Butler instilled the high standards expected for ensuring guests receive the service they expect.
When looking for the idyllic location to visit or settle in, everything we read about Costa Rica said we should come and explore this amazing eco-friendly country, so we did. After doing a bit of backpacking around and meeting the wonderfully friendly local people, we decided the beautiful Costa Ballena was the most exhilarating, charming, relaxing place we had ever come across.
We enlisted the help of the United Kingdom TV show called ‘A Place in the Sun’ (known as house-hunters International in warmer climates) to find us the place we had dreamed of. The research team combed the area and found the perfect place for us in Casitas Del Rio, just outside Uvita. We bought the place with the 3 gorgeous casitas in a heart-beat. from a wonderful couple who are now close friends and love the area so much they decided they want to stay and be our neighbours!
We fell in love with Casitas del Rio, the ‘little houses on the River’ the moment we saw them, and we are sure you will too. It is the perfect get away from it all; peace, quiet and tranquillity combined with the soothing sound of the river.
