vacation rental description

The dream of finding that private spot, nestled in the jungle among nature and wildlife, is fulfilled by a stay in Casa Selva. Sit on the porch overlooking the Pacific shoreline, whitewater playing on the rocks below. Watch the toucans and a myriad of bird life pass right by. White face and Howler monkey's, sloths and pizotes are frequently seen passing through the canopy overhead.

The villa is removed from the hustle and bustle, not only of 'back home', but the feeling of being removed from the world is palpable. Numerous guests have commented on the 'therapeutic affect' of Casa Selva. You truly unwind here. When we are not available, and the guests ask for a referral to something similar, we are hard-pressed to come up with the answer. There simply isn't one.

From Casa Selva you can drive 15 minutes to either the world famous surf town of Dominical, or the thriving community of Uvita, complete with grocery stores, banks, ATMs, pharmacies, etc. Numerous sites and activities are all around: horseback waterfall tours, whale and dolphin tours, sport fishing, turtle vigilance, diving, surfing, ATV tours, the list goes on. Or, how about some quiet time in a hammock with a good book? A stay at Casa Selva includes access to the pool, which overlooks the entire southern coastline.

Keywords: honeymoon, romantic getaway, jungle hideaway, additional jungle villas available if needed. Secluded in nature for privacy, but close enough to beaches, surfing, waterfalls, horseback riding, zip-lining, nature reserves, fabulous restaurants and spas, snorkeling and scuba, etc...

Honeymooners's Dream

Review submitted: February 5, 2014   Date of arrival: July 29, 2013

I'm a little late in writing this, but I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't leave Natalie a spectacular review. My husband and I stayed at Casa Selva for our honeymoon this past August. The little jungle house was everything we had imagined and everything we wished for. The house is open and minimalist enough to make you feel part of the beautiful nature around you but with the modern accomodations and comforts to make you feel right at home.

We were looking for an adventure in Costa Rica, a place off the beaten path where we could have privacy and freedom to explore. Dominical was exactly that. The house was equipped with exquisitely detailed hand-drawn maps of the surrounding towns, so we easily explored Quepos, Dominical, Uvita, Jaco and Manuel Antonio. We explored Playa Dominical, Playa Hermosa, and Dominicalito. Natalie arranged for us to go rappelling and snorkeling at Cano Island but I think our favorite part of the trip was hiking through Marina Bellena National Park. We saw white faced monkeys, howler monkeys, toucans, and poison dart frogs, but the grand finale was ending up on the most beautiful deserted beach you only see in movies complete with two waterfalls, and a cave!

We fell in love with the town of Domical itself. You can walk from one end to the other in probably ten minutes, but it's packed with beach bars, markets, coffee shops, musicians, dogs and surfers. We didn't have to go far for a night life either. Our favorite spots were Tortilla Flats in Dominical and the Jolly Roger right around the corner from Casa Selva. Talk about the best wings we've ever had! If you stop by, see if Wayne is bartending and tell him Tim and Traci from North Carolina told you he made the meanest Margarita around!

Thank you Natalie for the honeymoon of our dreams. You can guarantee we'll be back sooner than later. And who knows, maybe one day it will be for good!

Most amazing get away!

Review submitted: July 26, 2013   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

We had the most fantastic honeymoon imaginable at Casa Selva! Sitting on the porch and watching the wildlife was so relaxing. We saw sloths, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, lizards, frogs, toucans... all from the porch. The pool was fantastic and the gardens spectacular. The views were breathtaking. The sounds of the rainforest lull you to sleep every night. I couldn't imagine a more beautiful spot. A short drive to Uvita and Domincal. Natalie was a gracious host and had great suggestions on what to do while we were there. I would recommend this spot for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. A perfect romantic spot for couples.

Finca Solla Sollew... where you never have troubles, at least very few!

Review submitted: January 28, 2013   Date of arrival: January 8, 2013

My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to celebrate 5 nights of our honeymoon at Finca Solla Sollew! We could not have had a better experience. Natalie was incredibly sweet and helpful and we very much enjoyed our time with her and Ben. We cannot recommend this magical place enough... it is definitely a slice of heaven. The dogs and Natalie became our family while we were there and it was sad to say good bye for now, but we know we will be back. The price is extremely fair so next time we will bring family and friends and rent out the whole place!

We slept great every night and enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birds and monkeys each morning at exactly the right time. Casa Selva had all the amenities we needed and the pool was a huge bonus to our stay. We loved going to the local beaches during the day and exploring the cute town of Dominical and Uvita. Access was super easy and the road was the best 4x4 road we experienced in Costa Rica. We loved all of the food recommendations that Natalie gave us and enjoyed coming back to our beautiful cabin each day. It is truly paradise and it was hard to leave. We will definitely be back with our family one day ;-) and in the mean time will recommend Finca Solla Sollew to everyone we know!

Owners response: Thank you so much for the raves! We loved having you here as much as you enjoyed being here. We look forward to having you and family back again soon. Until then, take care of yourselves. Pura Vida!
