We are a german couple living our dream in Costa Rica. Kerstin is an architect and built our houses with a lot of love for details and nature. Udo is a software engineer.
Danke Kerstin & Udo!!
We had a wonderful time at the Orange House. The design of the bungalow and grounds is beautiful. It's a perfect balance of modern amenities combined with tropical simplicity. Toucans, geckos abound and waking each morning to the chorus of Howler Monkeys was a fun experience. It's hard to pick, but one of the favorite features is the outdoor shower. You have created a very special place. Everything was welcoming, accommodating and comfortable. Thank you for the fruit, homemade jam and the wonderful hospitality. (We also need the recipe for that awesome cake you made!)
You helped make our inaugural trip to Costa Rica a great experience. We hope to see you again and please give some pets to Taifun for us!

It's hard to believe but this home is every bit as beautiful and amazing as the pictures. Over and over again during our stay, I had to comment on how hard it was to believe that I could have access to such a luxurious and romantic place. The home itself is very private. The bathroom is out of this world. Showering under the stars surrounded by plants and flowers is just a magical experience. We loved sitting on the front porch in the evenings. The lighting is romantic and perfect. The ceiling fan is very powerful and we had no issues with bugs or heat. It was surprisingly cool even when the daytime temperatures in the area reached 104 degrees. The pool was amazing. We would take our drinks up there and watch the sunset. We also went each morning. If you are trying to decide between a place with a pool and one without one (I was), definitely choose here with the pool. It gets hot and the ocean water is warm; having a cool, clean pool to dip in each day makes a huge difference. Kerstin and Udo were very friendly and helpful - giving us privacy while also helping with any needs. Their own home (which the pool is in front of) is impressive and inspiring. This really was paradise and I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
This is paradise!
First of all Kerstin and Udo are perfect hosts they leave u alone but are always around the corner to help you and give you tips. They provide great binder with info off stuff to do. They clean the house and and provide clean towels and also mutiple towels for shopwer, pool n beach. And last they give you a phone for local calls and also 220 V.
The house was bigger than I expected when I got into it. It has everything you need for 2 persons. We cooked dinner at home everyday the kitchen had everything you needed from pans to spices (I'm very picky in the kitchen). The outdoor bathroom was my favorite, loved walking out there in the morning for showers n os on. The patio was big n gave great shades from the sun but for sun lovers you just havce to walk to more steps and you have awsome grass terrace. Wifi was fast and there was more than enough storage for 2 people who travell for 2 weeks.
Last of all don't forget to catch the sunset from the pool with a nice drink in your hand!
I would recomand the orange house to everybody! But u kind of need a car (4x4 is recomanded)!
The orange house was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon! We could not have enjoyed this little paradise more. The house was modern, convenient, and in mint condition. By far our favorite part was the pool- incredible views! Thank you to Kerstin and Udo for providing everything we needed and more for the perfect trip to Costa Rica!
Alles perfekt. Ein wahrer Urlaubstraum!
Beautiful house and secluded property. Very simple but not much is needed in paradise. Clean and spacious. Kersten and Udo are helpful and their suggestion book has good recommendations. We strongly suggest watching the sunset at PorQueNo? Food and view was outstanding.
Costa Rica is extremely hot so be prepared that house does not have air conditioning and only a ceiling fan which is fine especially at night when it cools down.
Also, take their advice and go food shopping prior to visit so you have snacks and beverages including water since you can't drink tap. The grocery store in town is pricey and limited with options.
Overall we loved it. Beautiful simple option in paradise.
This house is exactly what the listing and reviews say, and more! Pictures just don't do it justice. Kerstin and Udo are a lovely couple that make you feel welcome and give you everything you need to have a great stay without getting in their way. Their pool was the highlight for us, such beautiful landscape surrounding it! The towns surrounding the house are perfect for exploring and feeling like you're part of the local life. Highly recommend checking out Playa Ventanas and also Exotica restaurant, both things they pointed out in their guidebook. Overall, fantastic stay and highly recommend to anyone considering!!!
After trying to navigate the roads at night and being very tired from a long day of travel we finally reached the Orange House even though we arrived very late!! Trust their perfect directions! We, unfortunately, did not get to meet Kerstin as she was out of town but Udo was a most perfect host and was so welcoming. Wow, what a beautiful place! Everything was so well thought out. The fridge was stocked for our first morning there...milk, eggs, fresh bread, fruit, coffee, and Kerstins homemade lime jam which was fantastic. We had to leave it behind as we did not know the accommodations ahead of us. The kitchen was perfectly stocked as well. From the plug in inside the safe, to the complete book of the area, clear down to the local cell phone to use while you are there....Udo and Kerstin excel in hospitality. Thank you also for the wifi. It was the best way to stay in touch at home. We loved the outdoor, jungle like bathroom!! So unique. I spent a lot of time at the pool....it was he perfect way to relax. So peaceful!! I will definitely recommend The Orange House to family and friends. It's the perfect location with so much to offer in great restaurants and friendly people!
Eine tolle Unterkunft auf dem Grundstück der Gastgeber. Kerstin und Udo haben sich in jedem Belang um uns gekümmert. Swimming-Pool konnte genutzt werden. Bei der Ankunft fanden wir Brot und weitere kleine Stärkungen für den ersten Hunger vor. Toilette und Bad befinden sich in einem (eingezäunten) Außenbereich . Sehr reizvoll. Die Unterkunft bietet insgesamt eine sehr gelungene Symbiose zwischen Architektur und natürlicher Umgebung.
Perfect! Amazing! Flawless! Unbelievable! Heaven on earth! Beyond all expectations! Even more spectacular than the pictures. It's truly hard to put into words how incredible, blissful and beautiful this place is where nature coexists with life and inner peace is reflected in the openness.
It was a paradise that it seemed to be created just for us from the infinity pool with the amazing view, gazebo with a calm resting space in the shade, stone trails to get to and from (with bamboo walking sticks provided on cue), outdoor shower and bathroom, windows and doors letting the sun and beauty in, Eco-friendly features, cozy bed and furniture, outdoor table (perfect for our long brunches), relaxing hammock, vast yard with beautiful flowers and jungle, privacy, the list can go on and on.
Kerstin and Udo were perfect airbnb hosts (and we adored their dog too). From the start of our conversations, they were excellent communicators. She even provided us with a discount code for National Car Rental. Thank goodness we rented a 4 by 4 as she recommended; it was definitely needed.
They were able to answer all of our questions and provided a nice packet with useful information from details on the Orange House to info on restaurants and activities. It was also fun to chat with them here and there as we crossed paths. Other small touches helped make this stay more pleasurable such as the local cell phone they provided us to use and a built-in safe box. The kitchen had everything we needed to be able to make some of our meals. The striking and delicious fruit basket was a wonderful welcome along with homemade tropical fruit jam and fresh eggs. The local grocery store in town (few minutes away) was great too. Plenty of great restaurants close by.
We are so glad that we stayed here for a week. We already have several friends that will be looking into a trip to Costa Rica and to stay here. I know that we would love to come back.
We wanted to go somewhere for our honeymoon where we can just focus on each other and enjoy our surroundings- and this was just perfect. Thank you so much Kerstin and Udo. We are very happy (and jealous) that you get to enjoy this all the time. Thank you for letting us into the orange house; we feel very honored.
It was a pleasure having Kerstin & Udo as guests. Would definitely welcome back and recommend to other hosts.
