THE ESTATE Built on over 2.5 acres, the large private estate is situated in a quiet pristine setting. It consists of the longhouse, where the owners live, an infinity-pool with Indonesian style gazebo to relax under while overlooking the jungle and ocean, and the orange house, for rental. The buildings are surrounded by a huge tropical garden with lots of native trees, giant bamboo and local fruit trees set close to the rainforest and the Morete River. LOCATION Uvita, with its infrastructure that includes banks, supermarkets and restaurants, as well as the beaches and Marino Ballena National Park are only a short distance away by car. To Dominical it is a 9 miles/ 10 min drive by car. One of the most popular national parks of Costa Rica, the Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos is just 37 miles / 1 hour by car away. The property is located with easy access to the main road. ORANGE HOUSE - THE RENTAL HOUSE The Orange House is built a short distance from the longhouse. It was designed to provide privacy for those who want to simplify and eliminate both the physical and psychological clutter in their lives and come back to nature. The open inside is divided by built in furniture in bedroom, closet, kitchenette and daybed areas. Big sliding doors lead to the porch, which is settled between two big guaba trees, providing an easy interplay between indoors and outdoors. A lush outdoor garden bathroom invites the guests to experience a shower under the stars and emphasizes the open living character of the house. The floors are made of stained polished concrete. Straight clear lines, minimalism of furniture and decoration invites the resident to enjoy the spirit of the tropical outside, surrounded by a simple inside design. A sophisticated ventilation system of wood shutters and roof ventilation use the natural air flow to dispense with need for air-conditioning. POOL The pool area is located beside the longhouse and consists of a 3 x 11 m large infinity pool with waterfall shower from a bamboo pole and an Indonesian style gazebo to relax under. The pool will be exclusively for you to use during your stay. From the pool area you will experience a breathtaking view of the surrounding jungle of the 'fila costeña', the coastal mountain range that rises to over 3000 feet above the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS 1) How far is it to the international airport in San José? We recommend to rent a car. It is a 200 km/124 miles/ 3-4 hours drive from the international airport in San José to Uvita. We also recommend to do the drive during daytime. The best route is starting from the airport taking the new highway 27 direction Caldera and then highway 34 via Jaco, Quepos, Dominical to Uvita. Alternatively you also can take a domestic flight to Quepos with Sansa or Nature Air and take a rental car from there. From Quepos it is only a 45min drive to Uvita. 2) What kind of rental car do you recommend? We highly recommend a rental car to explore the area! We also recommend a 4x4, it would not be absolutely necessary but more comfortable. A small one would be sufficient. 3) How close is the Orange House from the beach? The nearest beach is Playa Hermosa, 3 km/1.5 miles away from the Orange House. The famouse whalestail beach is approx. 5 km/3 miles away. All together we are close to 7 different beaches here in the Uvita area. You will need a car to go there. 4) How fast is the wireless Internet? I'm happy to offer fast fiber optic internet, which is 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload.More

Beautiful property and accommodation. Friendly owner. Pool was a bit of a short hike up a hill to reach it. We thought the pool was in front of our cabin. To be fair, we should have paid closer attention to the pictures. Loved the garden shower facilities. We left early due to heat. Would reccomend staying here. Driving directions were spot on.

Loved this place. Gorgeous, artistic decor, eco-friendly construction- from energy conservation and compost bin to the rainwater collection system. The bathroom alone is cool enough to make it worth it- outdoors, with bamboo walls and exotic plants. Beautiful view of mountain jungle canopy with picturesque trees and energizing sunrises. The infinity pool is a serene and peaceful work of art. A great place for lovers of botany, wildlife, or just lovers in general. Super friendly owner couple. And not a bad price for what you get. Do it.

Experiencing "life in the jungle", while staying at an exquisite in its beauty, simplicity and functionality house, designed by Kerstin (European Architect and owner) was a wonderful journey. With years of experience in the hospitality industry in Costa Rica the owners, Udo and Kerstin provide their guests with seamless service, accommodating the most inquisitive international traveler. The Orange House is ideally situated close to all there is to see in the Uvita and Dominical area and best of all - does not require you rent a 4x4 truck. The house is beautiful in design, functionality and opportunity for effortless living, while enjoying the surrounding nature, sunsets and stunning views of the ocean. It is kept meticulously clean and inviting with a sense of lightness and joy that makes you want to extend your stay indefinitely. Swimming in the pool while watching the sunset is an experience in itself. The property offers daily opportunities for stunning photographs of nature and is a peaceful setting for writing, working or just hanging in a hammock. The natural breeze of the location was incorporated in the open design of the house to provide constant and organic air flow and ventilation that I did not experience anywhere else in the many places I had stayed in Uvita and Dominical. The outdoor shower is just brilliant in idea, execution and experience.

Trebron -:- Herndon, Virginia
It is the second time in 2011 (first time during Eastern) that I had been at the lovely Orange Guesthouse of Kerstin and Udo! The hosts are of extreme kindness and very pleasant in any context combined with all the guidance, discretion & privacy you might need. The architecture of the Longhouse (owners) and the Orange House are of a rare beauty and are just to be admired once you see them in a phantastic garden and environment with spectacular views in the mountains - especially when foggy clouds and the howlers can be heard. The accessability to the Orange House is more than great and short from the main coastal road without adventure to get lost in the mountains. The area with lovely beaches and other attractions is unbeatable. My favourite time: sit on the terrace (or lay on the daytime coach) - drink a glass of wine - look in the area - listen to the birds - let the soul walk around - be just happy to have had the luck to meet Kerstin & Udo! Do you assume that I would like to come back asap?

The Orange House is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. Perfect for a couple who looks for a get-away but at the same time want to have easy access to the main tourist attraction as there are pristine beaches and a variety of adventure tours. I highly recommend.

Staying at this beautiful and very well maintained house was a relaxing and fun experience. Nature surrounding the house is wonderful, we had the opportunity to see toucans in the property trees as well as a flock of scarlet macaws flying over a huge Guanacaste tree. The nearby beaches and waterfalls, amazing! The owners were very kind and helpful at every moment, they also provide a detailed information folder and maps of the area in the house. Thank you!! We really enjoyed our stay very much.

The pictures do not do it justice! The Orange House is a modern and extraordinary designed home surrounded by a lush garden in a jungle setting. The natural beauty of the outdoors and the tastefully decorated interior become one. Our mornings were awakened with the sounds of the jungle, Toucans and various exotic birds. Don't miss to go to the beach in the early morning with low tide, it's a spectacular atmosphere and only a few minutes away by car. Relaxing by the infinity pool, relishing the peaceful view to the ocean and jungle mountains was the perfect escape. We will be back!

The studio house was spacious and well equipped, and the sounds of the jungle at night are a real treat. Toucans and parrots fill the air with their sounds each morning and evening. We loved the openness and modern character of the house and especially the garden bathroom is an experience worth having. Kristin and Udo were there anytime we needed. Kind and helpful but not invasive in any way. I will certainly come back as it was really hard to leave. It is definitely one of, if not the nicest place I've stayed in.
