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!
We had an amazing time at Kerstin and Udo's beautful house in Uvita. The space is absolutely gorgeous. Kerstin is an architect and designed the house with great style and functionality. There is a heavenly outdoor shower surrounded by flowers and other tropical plants. The sitting and eating areas face a lush garden filled with butterflies and hummingbirds. The place was immaculately clean when we arrived and Udo and Kerstin stocked it with fresh fruit and delicious bread. In terms of the location, the beaches of Marino Ballena park are spectacular and deserted. Uvita is a very easy one hour drive to Manuel Antonio, on an excellent road, and a far better place to stay to avoid the crowds. In short, super highly recommended, the best place we stayed in Costa Rica!
Great place to be in Uvita, totally in line with our expectation. It was very quiet and peaceful . We profit from the pool , with a beautiful view, and enjoy surfing. This is well located to visit Uvita, Dominical and playa Hermosa.
Nós adorámos a nossa estadia na casa da Kerstin e do Udo!
A casa é fabulosa e tem uma vista espectacular para quem aprecia a natureza. E é exactamente igual ao descrito nas fotografias!
Foram uns bons anfitriões, deixando-nos à vontade para explorar a propriedade, e deram-nos dicas preciosas para conhecer a zona.
Uvita é uma zona calma e as pessoas são amigáveis e prestáveis. Ainda não é uma zona super desenvolvida para o turismo, o que é óptimo para quem quer fugir disso. Há comércio e serviços em todo o lado, que nos permite ter uma estadia confortável, sem ser necessário fazer vários quilómetros para nos abastecermos ou recorrer a uma farmácia ou ao médico.
Depois, está situada numa zona que oferece um leque variado de sítios a visitar. Aconselhamos a visitarem a reserva indígena de Boruca, o Parque Manuel António, o Parque Nacional do Corcovado e as praias envolventes. O tour para ver as baleias no pacífico também é muito bom.
My husband and I had the most amazing trip to Costa Rica staying in the orange house. They were such amazing hosts- they had a whole platter of fresh local fruit waiting for us upon arrival along with an informational packet with all the info we could possibly need for our trip. So helpful and nice!
The house was unreal. Like, way better than the photos. We loved it so much! The few photos we posted on social media made all our friends ask what "resort" we were staying at!
Would definitely recommend-an amazing experience!
This was a beautiful way to experience a week in Costa Rica, being based at Kerstin and Udo's wonderful guest house. The gardens are lovely and the house with its outdoor bathroom and nearby infinity lap-pool is perfect for an escape from the real world. Nearby towns and beaches offered up endless options for day trips and nights out - but hiring a car is a must - and Manuel Antonio was only an hour away. Thank you for a blissful week.
Kerstin and Udo's guest home is a beautiful and relaxing place. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get away. And to top it all off they were such warm, inviting, and helpful hosts from the planning stage to the fresh bread and local fuits they left for us on arrival. I cant say enough about them and their lovely home.
Holy wow was this place amazing! As other guests have said, while the pictures are pretty awesome, the actual space is even better.
Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 7 days and were sad when we left.
Kerstin and Udo are awesome hosts and from the moment we walked in we felt like we were staying at a luxury resort.
We were working on our lap tops during the days and the wifi was excellent ( multiple video calls every day ) and the scenery was unbeatable.
The kitchen was well stocked with the basics + the provided good coffee.
They also created a really good guide book with lots of close by adventures and beaches, though the directions could use a little sprucing up, so make sure you confirm with Kerstin or Udo before you take your partner on a trek to find the "secret beach or waterfall" :-)
Also, they built and maintain this house with the highest eco friendly materials and cleaning products which is a huge bonus ( read no pesticides and herbicides and chemical cleaners on everything )
We'll definitely be back next time we find ourselves in Uvita!
Thanks Kerstin and Udo
