vacation rental description

Under new local property management - enthusiastic and effective customer service provided by our new host Rodrigo (English/Spanish spoken).

At Casas La Selvatica we offer two comfortable homes immersed in the rain forest and surrounded by wildlife, yet only minutes away from a picture perfect beach, grocery store and restaurants. The setting is ideal for couples or families who appreciate the comfort of a home rather than a hotel room. We are located within easy reach of countless low ecological impact recreational activities.

Our property and the surrounding area are home to an incredible array of wildlife: you will most likely watch howler monkeys in their search for food, toucans or sloths right from the comfort of the patio. The homes are located minutes away from a couple of the most picturesque palm fringed beaches in the Caribbean. Your hostess will be available to assist with information about the area, bookings for activities/tours and offer detailed attention to your comfort throughout your vacation.

Accommodation: Built with natural hardwood and decorated with lively Caribbean touches, including eclectic local art and tile mosaics, Casa Grande features two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, large outdoor dining area, bathroom with hot shower and a frog pond to watch the conservation of some endangered species of frogs.

The home has two bedrooms and two dens, comfortably accommodating up to five people in two double and one single bed. We offer the following, along with your accommodation:

- bilingual hosts (English/Spanish) available to provide information and assistance as needed;

- laundry service is included for vacations of minimum 7 days;

- high speed wireless internet for your devices;

- lock box for secure storage of valuables;

- transportation, tours and activities booking

- on-site therapeutic or relaxing massages provided by qualified physiotherapist are available - please inquire with your host or with us during booking.

We would love to customize your vacation according to your needs. If you are celebrating a special occasion or would like to pleasantly surprise a loved one, we can provide additional services as required bottle of wine awaiting your arrival and/or local handmade organic chocolates, etc.) or arrange for a romantic dinner or spa package before your arrival.

Please contact us even if the calendar indicates that the property is not available for your desired vacation dates - changes happen frequently and we cannot guarantee that the calendar is updated at all times. In case this home might not perfectly suit your vacation needs, please ask us about our one bedroom home, Casa Mango located on the same property.

Tours and Activities: There are many wonderful activities to do in between the rain forest and in the sea. From guided wildlife watching, zip-lining through the tree canopies, hiking or biking to cooking, dancing and other thrilling adventures, there are activities sure to fit into your ideal tropical vacation plans.

We aim to assist you with your travel planning and make your vacation seamless. Please let us know if you would like to receive information or bookings for transportation from San Jose airport, or booking of tours and activities. We are able to offer discounted rates for activities, due to our collaboration with the local tour providers.

traveler reviews for this punta uva house rental

Quiet, exactly as pictured, great hosts!

Review submitted: April 7, 2014   Date of arrival: March 8, 2014

We stayed in Casa Grande, we really liked the location. Easy, short walk to the beach, and a very convenient store at the end of the laneway. The house was exactly as is pictured on the website, and the hosts were welcoming and helpful. Plenty of good restaurants in walking distance!

Great Value - Great Property

Review submitted: March 10, 2014   Date of arrival: March 6, 2014

Had the pleasure of staying for 2 days at Casa Grande - the house was perfect for our family of 4. We loved the table on the patio and spent both nights out there, playing games while enjoying the sound of the frogs. Saw an abundance of green parrots, spiders, and a few toucans in the mornings. The house was very clean and comfortable. Berni was there to meet us and show us around - a very, very nice and helpful young man. Location was ideal with everything within walking distance. Daniel was extremely helpful with helping us with our last minute request and very responsive. If we were to come to this area again, we would definitely stay here!

Jungle Paradise

Review submitted: March 9, 2014   Date of arrival: February 18, 2014

Well we just returned from 10 days at Casa Grande in Playa Chaquita Costa Rica. We told Jeff and Daniel that we would put report on Trip advisor, well we kicked it around because sometimes when you find something so perfect for yourself you really don't want to share it, but I guess we will. We arrived late on Tuesday (after 9pm) after the rafting trip, in which we highly suggest. We were met by the hosts Bernie and Maria at the gate (can't say enough about these two!) We walked into the house with some expectations and to our pleasure it was better than expected. We spent many hours either sitting in one of the hammocks on the front porch or playing games on the wonderfully spacious table out there as well. From the first night forward we learned about the resident frogs, names of spiders, used the bikes a lot, walked the beaches virtually alone most days, were able to walk to many different restaurants, the grocery store is small but adequate. There is virtually nothing that we could have asked for that wasn't available for us. This is the jungle with lots of noises from howler monkeys and toucans, so be prepared, this isn't a resort. The kitchen has enough pots, pans and utensils to prepare most meals. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom has a shower and everything else you might need. Jeff & Daniel were very helpful with quick responses and kept in contact with us throughout the stay. They are great hosts.
