My wife and two children enjoyed three wonderful nights at Casa Tres Monos in April of 2015. The house is in an amazing location. We definitely recommend a 4x4 or AWD vehicle when visiting Costa Rica and Casa is one of those ideal reasons why. If you want to get away from it all you're going to have drive some roads that are no joke. The location overlooking the Pacific Ocean is idyllic. If that weren't enough, the trees surrounding the property are rife with birds of all kinds. We saw hummers, multiple species of toucans, parrots, and more that we couldn't identify. It was so relaxing just kicking back on the deck and listening to the sounds of nature all around. We stayed at four different lodgings during our 10-night tour of Costa Rica and Casa was our favorite. We and the kids had our own separate spaces. The main bedroom had easily the most comfortable bed of our trip and the kids really enjoyed sleeping in the loft. The bathrooms are large and nicely appointed and the showers were head and shoulders above any others we experienced. Remember, you're staying the wild. There are bugs and bees and we even opened the door to a snake one evening! That's all part of the allure of Casa. The caretaker, Mile, did a great job keeping Casa clean while we explored the area each day and we took advantage of her laundry service as well which exceeded our expectations. She and her family also prepared a traditional Tico meal for us which was among the best dining experiences we had in Costa Rica. Mile even went of her way to prepare a tres leches birthday cake for me! Communication was a challenge for us. We did not have a working cell phone while in Costa Rica and Casa has no phone or internet. They did provide a wireless fob which rode the nearby cellular tower and fortunately my wife did have a device with a USB port to connect and send/receive emails. All in all our stay was amazing. We recommend Casa Tres Monos based on value, location, and Mile's amazing food! Thank you!

Staying at Casa Tres Monos was amazing! The views are spectacular and the house had all of the amenities that we needed and more. The location was great and easily accessible (not too remote but still felt very private). The hosts Christine and Tom ensured we had everything we needed, and the housekeeping service came in as an extra bonus. The access to Crystal Ballena Resorts pool was a nice way to cool off and relax at their great facilities as well. The bath products were also a nice touch...L'Occitane! We stayed there 9 days and had a wonderful experience! Alana & Les

Talk about camping in style! This cabin was a great little home away from home (in paradise!). Unfortunately we saw no monkeys or sloths on the grounds, but enjoyed the songs of a family of green parrots, and a couple of toucans. We loved the birds but if you're planning on sleeping late, this may not be the house for you. The apartment was spotless, exactly as described. The kitchen is a bit cramped, so if you're planning on cooking epic meals here, it might be kind of tough. The drive up the mountain is pretty cool, even with the crappy 4x4 rental we had. It is beautifully landscaped and the view is outstanding! Rick & Rob made the whole process completely seamless along with the help of their management team - excellent communication and everyone was SO friendly! The Jaguar Management website's list of things to do in the area should read as a checklist of what you MUST do! All their recommendations were on point and all the sights and activities were safe, locals were friendly and we had a blast! Thanks again guys!!!

Getting to Casa Tres Monos was a wild journey just because we got there so late and didn't have cell phone reception. Luckily we were equipped with wonderfully detailed directions and finally met up with the property manager, Christine, who was very kind and happy to show us around. Casa Tres Monos was a dreamy respite, complete with fresh exotic flowers in all the vases and some ripe fruit, which we couldn't help but enjoy. We had both amazing evenings and mornings waking up to an amazing view and the haunting sounds of howling monkeys. Three nights were not enough-- but we'll definitely be back for longer next time!

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Casa Tres Monos, and loved it!! We enjoyed being in the mountains where the breeze was wonderful. The house offers great views of the ocean, and is a short 10 minute drive to Uvita and all of the surrounding beaches. We enjoyed watching the howler monkeys, toucans and parrots from the deck. We did miss having a pool, but went to Crystal Ballena a couple of times ordered drinks and enjoyed their pool. The house itself is new and comfortable, and loaded with windows so that you can enjoy the amazing views. I think we've already decided that we will stay here again the next time we're in Costa Rica!

No picture captivates the beauty of this place!!! We spent 5 weeks in Costa Rica and stayed 5 different places and Casa Tres Monos is absolutely our favorite. The house got everything you need and more. Also daily cleaning by the very sweet house keeper Milena. You have a breath taking ocean view from uphill and the forest right next to you where you can see humming birds and tucans every day. Ballena, the area, got it all! If you like to dive Cano Island 20 km offshore is absolutely amazing. Also you can do a fun canopy / zip lining tour and the mangrove tour is a must as well. So many beautiful beaches and some pretty good snorkeling if you go to the Whale Tale (Uvita Beach). Rob (host) and Christine and Andres (property management team) were all very friendly and helpful. We felt right at home AND WOULD LOVE TO COME BACK :))) Aya, Silje, Ricki and Linda from Denmark
