The Space

Casa Selva Cabinas are the perfect location for couple, individual or small group looking for a peaceful and nature exposed Costa Rican get away. Casa Selva is located 5 miles South of Dominical and 5 miles North of Uvita, right off the Coast Rd (Rt 34). Our location is literally where the Ocean meets the Jungle and full of all the associated charm. There are 3 beaches within a 10 minute drive, excellent surf, and great restaurants with breathtaking views for all tastes and budgets.

Our 4 acre park-like setting is private, safe and unique. The grounds, cabina's and main house were hand built by the owner's internationally recognized craftsmanship. Plentiful and safe wildlife are frequently seen and include: howler and white faced monkeys, sloths, and tropical birds of too many kinds to list. The owners own several dogs (all friendly and well trained) and a horse on the property.

This cabina includes a bedroom/bathroom, a full kitchen, outdoor living spaces with a hammock, an outdoor cooking area, high speed internet, hotwater and a cable TV hookup. There is 1 bedroom that sleeps 2 in a bed, but there are 2 couch beds in the upstairs area. This allows us to accomodate a maximum of 4 guests.

Near by tourist attractions include: The night life of surf town Dominicalito, OSA Zipline Canopy Tours, and a Horseback riding waterfall excursion. Public transportation to Dominicalito, San Isidro and San Juan pick up at a bus stop at the front gate.

  • Millie and Richard were fantastic hosts. They were very informative prior to our arrival and upon arrival, we received a very warm welcome. The Howler Hut is wonderful and definitely provide the whole 'living in the jungle experience'. Millie and Richard's property is beautiful and we would go back any day!

  • We had a wonderful one month stay at the Howler Hut. The wildlife all around the hut was amazing. We saw howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, Jesus lizard in the stream, and more birds than I can list here. Millie & Richard were more than helpful in pointing us in the right direction if we needed anything. Somehow I had managed to pack only 1/2 of my swimsuit and Millie actually had one I could use that fit perfectly!! The Favas
    The layout of the hut is a little unusual in that you have to go down and around to get to the bedroom/bathroom combo but we soon had adjusted to that. We were sorry to leave so soon and will look forward to returning to Dominical and Uvita in the future.
