Superbe endroit tres propre et charmant. Nous avons eu l'occasion de voir des toucans sur la propriété et plusieurs autres oiseaux magnifiques....C'est un endroit intime avec belle végétation. Les hotes ont été tres gentils et accueillants. Merci pour tout!
My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the Orange House. From first contact with Kerstin and Udo, they were pleasant and thorough in providing information and directions. Upon arrival, Kerstin greeted us at the gate and showed us to the Orange House and around the grounds. The house was immaculate and truly spectacular. They really thought of every detail, down to a electrical outlet in the safe! Fresh fruit, fresh bread, and homemade jam was left for us along with a fully stocked kitchen, which we were sure to utilize. A binder was provided at the house as well, with information on local restaurants and a list of popular excursions, including phone numbers and a cell phone was provided for our use. Again, they really thought of everything. Our favorite part about the house was the convenience of the location...just a few minutes from the local grocery store, restaurants, a local flea market and only 10-15 mins to Dominical. My personal favorite characteristic of the house was the shower which inside/outside with a permaculture setup. It was absolutely amazing. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wholeheartedly.
The orange house was indescribably beautiful!! We flew into San Jose and rented a 4x4. We used our cellphones for GPS. We also utilized Kerstin's directions. It's hard getting around with no addresses. So be aware of sense of directions. We stayed for our honeymoon. The house was well equipped with a kitchen. We tried not to buy much food because of ants. The open shower-well we loved it!!! It is a very tranquil place. Plants and flowers all around. The hosts do not disturb but we're communicative with us when we needed something. When we arrived the place was clean and Kerstin does a good job of utilizing flowers around the home. They let us use the pool. You could stay in the Orange house and just relax during your stay but we ventured out (website hidden) is an Eco-friendly place and so is the Orange house hosts so learn your organics! Your host will provide you with a gate key. Be careful when closing. I would put gate key in my purse and I think it would accidentally open the gate again after we would leave. Overall. This place is an oasis. I would recommend it to everyone wanting to get away.
The Orange House in Uvita was heaven on Earth. The property was a lush tropical garden, and the villa itself was beautifully designed and extremely comfortable.
Kerstin and Udo were model hosts through and through. They thought of everything! They gave us all the privacy we could want, and also made themselves available for any assistance we needed.
They even provided an EXTREMELY helpful information folder, with tips, and recommendations for all sorts of local businesses, natural scenery, and activities.
Villas Kasha is a paradise, in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. (And we have traveled over most of it).
If you are considering the Pacific side of Costa Rica, look no further, because you will NOT find a nicer place to stay.
Kerstin and Udo did a excellent job of making us feel welcome. We arrived a little later than expected and Kerstin was still there to show us around and get us settled. They had fresh fruit, homemade jam and coffee there for us. They supplied us with fresh linen and towels without us even asking for it.
If you are looking for a experience different from the typical All inclusive resort type of vacation I would definitely recommend there place. The house is close to all amenities and some amazing beaches.
We stayed at the Orange House for our weeklong honeymoon and absolutely loved it! Kerstin and Udo were great hosts, and we'd recommend the Orange House for anyone looking for a secluded nature retreat that's just far enough off the beaten path. The house was clean and breezy, the garden outside the house is beautiful and peaceful, and we were content to just relax there at the house for much of the trip. But there were also plenty of spots to explore nearby including beaches, waterfalls, hiking trails, etc. and grocery stores, banks, and restaurants within easy access as well. Prior to arriving in Costa Rica, we had done a little research but decided to plan out exactly what we wanted to do once we got there. The guidebook with recommendations was so helpful for that. Overall, our stay at the Orange House was perfect, exactly what we were hoping for!
Some comments for fellow travelers: After landing in San Jose we rented a 4x4 (with full coverage insurance, which we would definitely recommend considering the driving conditions are bumpy dirt and rock roads once you get off the main road). We also rented a GPS, which was helpful for us since we were unfamiliar with the area. Kerstin and Udo were kind enough to provide us with a prepaid phone for use in Costa Rica once we arrived, which we didn't need to use too much but was nice to have in case. There's a frame above the bed with hooks to hang up your mosquito net (recommended!). Our favorite spot to eat was Ranchos Remo for their full breakfast with an amazing view.
The orange house is simple
yet elegant and very beautifully designed. The little details make this place very special. The outdoor shower is unlike anything I've ever seen before. We enjoyed our time here and hope to come back again someday.
We stayed at the orange house for 4 nights and ADORED it !!!
The house is so quiet, so clean, so beautiful...As well as the huge garden and the magnifient pool, which is located just 50 meters above, in front of long house from the charming and discreet Kersting & Udo (which pool is for your own use when you stay in the orange house).
Just a perfect place for un unforgettable moment....
A beautiful oasis in a beautiful place.
We started our trip in Uvita wanting to unwind from our busy lives and that's exactly what we did. Well, despite the fact my husband had to work for the first day but the wifi worked well and fast so helped to speed that process along! Kerstin and Udo's Orange house is beautiful, just like the pictures. The architecture so carefully thought out giving spacious relaxing open living. The house is shaded and down a hill from the main house so it is both cool and secluded giving you privacy and respite. We both absolutely adored the outdoor bathroom. Showering on a warm balmy night looking up at the stars accompanied by a distant insect chorus was something really special. There were other lovely touches like the starter breakfast with homemade tropical jam and the information pack, where we tried out the local walk for stunning views over the ocean. We also used the pool on the last day and the views over the gardens and forests were wonderful. We had a great few days and would thoroughly recommend it.
Kerstin & Udo were fantastic hosts. They were very nice and helpful with suggestions for the surrounding area. We loved the Orange House, it was a perfect place to call home for our week exploring Costa Rica.
The Orange House was very clean and stocked with everything needed on arrival, include a nice touch of fresh fruit and bread, and homemade tropical fruit jam in the fridge. Overall the Orange House was amazing, comfortable, in a beautiful setting and the bonus of being open air. It was great to open the sliding doors and enjoy the perfect weather, and it offered nice ventilation to keep cool at night.
The surrounding property is beautiful, with views of trees, flowers and wildlife including hummingbirds and toucans, among others. The infinity pool was a great place to unwind after days exploring the nearby towns and the small covered deck by the pool was perfect to relax in the shade on particularly hot days.
The Orange House is in a great location, with easy access to the beaches of Bahia Ballena, Playa Hermosa, Dominical and many others. There are also a bank, supermarket and other amenities within a short drive.
Thanks Kerstin & Udo!
