We stayed in Kerstin & Udo's stunning Orange House for the first half of our honeymoon. I can sum it up with, it was a complete dream. On multiple occasions I looked at my new husband and said "Is this real life?" If and when we are in this corner of the world again we will surely stop to stay with Kerstin & Udo again. Hands down, coolest bathroom/shower ever. Not that this should be a deciding factor when you're in Costa Rica, but the Internet was fantastic. It was fun to have a movie night and be able to stream Netflix. Also, still thinking about Kerstin's homemade jam...delicious! Udo forwarded us an email from a restaurant about fresh tuna and a BBQ they were having and it was amazing! They are perfect hosts with a just right balance of friendliness but also giving you privacy. I have and will continue to recommend Orange House to our family and friends! Thank you Kerstin & Udo!
We loved our stay here and wish that we had spent more time here in Uvita during our trip. Kirstin and Udo were very welcoming and had thought of every detail of how we could explore the area. The fruit and snacks they had waiting for us lasted the length of our stay and were greatly appreciated. The pool, property, and views are amazing. We couldn't have been happier with our vacation.
What a great place to stay and relax as much time as your schedule permits. We spent 4 nights and we wish it was even more!. The Orange House is so beautiful and comfortable that you won't need to go to any beach. Every detail is designed with tons of love. The swimming pool and the view from up there are also amazing. Kerstin and Udo were always very kind and supportive all the time we needed them. Thank you both! You're so great! We loved your place. Hope to come back soon!
We absolutely loved our stay in Uvita with Kerstin and Udo. The property is gorgeous and incredibly functional and self-sustaining (all designed by Kerstin who is an architect!). The pictures do not do this place justice! The grounds are so beautiful--the hammock, the pool, the amazing outdoor bathroom... We truly relaxed and enjoyed the peacefulness of the jungle.
We were greeted by Kerstin, Udo, and their sweet dog-Taifun. Upon arrival we were given a delicious starter breakfast, complete with Kerstin's amazing homemade jam and fresh fruit. Kerstin and Udo were very helpful during our stay. If you are considering visiting Uvita and are looking for peace, serenity, and complete relaxation you will love the Orange House. We can't recommend it enough!
If you're looking for an amazing, private place to stay in Costa Rica, Kerstin&Udo's Orange House is highly recommended. My wife and I stayed here in June 2015 and absolutely loved our stay. Upon our arrival, Kerstin gave us a quick tour of the house and then gave us our privacy for the rest of the stay. We soon encountered a pair of toucans and much more wild life which made our stay all the more exciting! The house has all the modern amenities and we enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen. We also loved the modern styling and the outdoor shower. All of it was amazing! As other reviews mention, the fresh fruit, the homemade jam & the bread were just such an excellent welcoming touch. A folder with all the local attractions and the host provided cell phone made planning activities in Uvita a breeze. Everything about the Orange House was above and beyond excellent. We felt truly spoiled with this bed & breakfast. It was everything you could ask and more!
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!
Kerstin and Udo were amazing hosts! We arrived later than expected and it was dark but thankfully they provided very thorough directions, getting around Costa Rica at night can be challenging. The pictures don't do it justice. I really like how efficient and environmentally sound the Orange House is. The open living space, the view, the bathroom, the pool, all my favorites. A cellphone is provided during your stay which was very helpful when making dinner reservations. And a family of toucans visited us on our last day there, that was a nice send off. If you're looking for a secluded place in the rainforest this is it. And don't forget to try Kerstin's homemade jam!
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.
It was a pleasure having Kerstin & Udo as guests. Would definitely welcome back and recommend to other hosts.
