Carlos, his family, and the casita are a secret gem in the Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva area. Just a short walk to the beach and the jungle in your front yard. WiFi router is in each casita. The kitchen opens up to a bar/patio with great seating and hammock to watch and listen to the monkeys in the tree...

We just returned from 5 days stay at Casitas de Punta Uva and can't say enough good about it. We loved it! Carlos and Anke were very understanding and flexible when our travel plans changed suddenly at the last minute, twice! And they made our stay wonderful. About the only complaint my 4 yr old had was he wanted to...

I have to say; the place turned out to be way better than we expected. Casitas are big, well equipped and well kept. Front wall of the kitchen opens up to the porch creating a sort of open bar - perfect for morning coffee or evening drink. Plenty of jungle sounds, the casitas are tucked into the jungle making it...

This is the place you want to be! As soon as I walked into the house we were renting I wanted to ask Carlos if I could just stay forever. The houses are wonderful, comfortable and the showers warm! The outdoor showers are even better! It's conveniently located far enough away from the hubbub of Puerto Viejo but still close...

The place is fantastic! .... a few casitas surrounded by the Caribbean jungle, has a super good location: walking distance to beautiful beach, really close to other amazing beaches, (8 min to Manzanillo), and to the Puerto Viejo town. Also close to several good restaurants. I assure you will have a great stay!

This was our first visit to Costa Rica, and first vacation experience outside an "all-inclusive" hotel. This private property is perfectly located in the lush jungle, with the sounds of wildlife to keep you company (especially the hords of howler monkeys!), within a 5 min. walk to one of the nicest beach in the Costa Rica. My best memories of...

This could have been a really amazing place to stay if the casitas were better maintained. The location is beautiful, set in the jungle with fruit trees (guava, plantain, banana, lychee) and loads of wildlife (monkeys, hummingbirds, butterflies, lizards, agouti), the beach is a 10 minute walk away, there are tasty restaurants within 5-15 minute walking distance, and bicycle rental...

Getting There We were a group of 8 flying in from East, Middle and West coast of U.S. via Miami to San Jose, C.R. The trip from San Jose to Puerto Viejo took about 6 hours, as we stopped for dinner along the way and bought groceries, restroom breaks, etc. Though the smiling private shuttle driver didn't speak much English,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casitas de Punta Uva are comprised of one large (Casa de Monos) and two smaller rental houses (Casita de Toucans and Casita de Sloths) perfectly located to enjoy a five minute walk to the famous Punta Uva Beaches on the Caribbean Sea. Our affordable rental houses are equipped for a clean, comfortable, unique and earthy Caribbean Costa Rican vacation. Each house has a fully-stocked kitchen, cozy living spaces, large beds, and relaxing porches. Open air living and fans ensure a constant coolness to your stay.Enjoy cooking for yourselves (if you desire) in the large, fully-equipped kitchen (fridge, oven, stove, large countertop, pots/pans/cutlery/dishes) and hanging out comfortably while eating, drinking or talking the night away. Casitas de Punta Uva is perfectly located about 10 minutes outside of the busy and exciting Puerto Viejo "town". Close enough to visit all the restaurants, art galleries, bars and shops, but far enough away to enjoy the pure nature that surrounds us here in the jungle. We are located in the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge (rainforest) but are just across the street from the famous Punta Uva beaches. Casitas is on the main coastal road and while not as "busy" as Puerto Viejo, we do have plenty of bars, restaurants, grocery stores and tours right in our area. We truly are perfectly located to be in the center of the whole area for a great adventure based vacation. Our property is large, manicured for beauty and is full of fruit trees including starfruit (carambola), guayaba, limon de dulce, bananas, plantains, and manzanas that we love to share with our guests. My husband, Carlos, and I live on property to make sure each of our guests gets what they need when they need it. English and Spanish is spoken here. ... more   less

“If you like sleeping late and are a light sleeper, then this could be problematic, as the howlers woke us up just before dawn. My family didn't mind though, as my kids are up early anyway and it gave them time to explore.”
