vacation rental description

Conveniently located 1000 feet above the village of Uvita, where the mountains go right down to the coast, this private 2000 square foot villa is nestled in a secluded jungle setting. There are ocean views across the entire west side of the house: kitchen, dining area, living room and veranda. One of the two bedrooms is set behind the veranda and can open up on it, allowing for an ocean view from bed. You do not need to bring much clothing because we have a dedicated laundry room and even provide the detergent. Due to the rapid rise in elevation, a 4x4 SUV will be needed and we can help you rent one at a very reasonable price. If you want to stay connected in the wilds, bring your laptop. The villa has WiFi. And if it rains, we have a flat screen TV, DVD player and extensive film collection. Or play a CD from our collection.

We are pleased to have Jaguar Property Management taking care of you throughout your stay. Their competent team is at your service beginning with meeting you on your arrival in Uvita and then escorting you to the house. They are happy to provide helpful and cheery assistance and information throughout your stay.

Hike right from the front door down to a nearby river for a swim in a waterfall pool or go down to the village. Uvita is a multi-cultured community which serves as the shopping hub for the area. There are restaurants, supermarkets, a tourist information center, cafes, boutiques and shops. There is a beautiful farmer's market every Saturday morning where many local artisans sell their wares. Uvita connects to Bahia, the entrance to Marino Ballena National Park which has the Whale's Tail, a nearly 700 meter long and 250 meters wide sandbank, the third largest in the world.

Tour operators here will bring you snorkeling right off the coast at Ballena Isla or to the famous Cano Island for scuba or snorkeling. They also offer tours to Corcovado National Park across the bay for a day of hiking in one of the few primal forests left in the world. Or choose a day of deep sea fishing or tour Uvita's 1000 acre wildlife preserve. There are zip line tours and ATV tours. Go 5 miles down the Costanera to kayak on the Terraba River in the largest mangrove in all of Central America. We also have several wonderful waterfalls which you can walk to or rent a horse and ride there. The Whale's Tail divides the endless coastline of beaches into two distinct kinds. On one side, enjoy vigorous surf for both swimming and surfing. And on the other side, enjoy the calm water ideal for snorkeling.

With ocean breezes all day and cool mountain air at night, there is no need for air conditioning (although one bedroom has an in-wall unit). The two large bedrooms have queen sized beds (one bedroom has an additional single bed), private baths, and are separated by a spacious living room with dining area. All closets are dehumidified. Fully equipped kitchen and vaulted ceilings with palm frond ceiling fans give this home both comfort and beauty. Incredible wildlife and spectacular sunsets make Casa Toucan unforgettable. Wake up to the calls of howler monkeys and have sunset cocktails with resident toucans by your 40 foot ocean-view, very private swimming pool.

traveler reviews for this uvita house rental

Loved it

Review submitted: July 20, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

We are a family of 4- two adults and 2 children age 6 and 8.
We all loved staying at Casa Toucan. Very spacious rooms, open plan, view on the ocean over lush jungle. Space, air, bird calls, guttural monkey sounds- indescribable! Truly a place to relax and enjoy every minute. Pool is great, water is warm and clean, no chlorine smell.
House is very clean as well. It is also very spacious and very comfortably furnished in a great taste.
We found everything we need for a comfortable stay. The owners provided beach towels and toys, huge collection of DVDs (but only few for kids), paper towels, even laundry detergent was provided!
Even thought the house is in the middle of a jungle we have not had wild life crawling around the house. We saw a tiny lizard inside a few times, I think it was anole.
Outside we saw toucans and lizards. Heard but seldom saw monkeys.
Waterfall a little ways from the house is beautiful and the water is deep enough for swimming. Last few steps to the fall are quite steep but manageable.
Staying at Casa Toucan was great. We definitely got the value for our money.

The title describes it perfectly

Review submitted: May 26, 2014   Date of arrival: May 9, 2014

Casa Toucan is an amazing jungle get away with plenty to do in the surrounding area. The 3mile drive up and down the road, can be tiring after a while, but well worth it. Plenty of activities, beaches and restaurants within 30 minutes of the house.
The house itself is very comfortable and spacious with a great view. Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle. The kitchen has just about everything you need to cook a meal for 6 or 7 people, and there is a grill outside. Having a washer/dryer was a bonus. There is also a property management team to assist you. They have great recommendations, are easily available, and very kind.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, romantic getaway

Owners response: So glad you all enjoyed your vacation and thank you for taking the time to write this review. One small correction. The distance from town up to the house is 2 miles, not 3.

Wonderful House in Uvita area

Review submitted: December 27, 2013   Date of arrival: December 8, 2013

My husband and I and another couple spent 10 days in this house. We have rented multiples from VRBO in places all over the world. This was one of the best equipped houses we have ever stayed in. There was everything we needed for cooking, the grill was great- lots of movies for watching. The house is perfect for two couples or a family. The pool is fabulous, and the view is amazing. We woke up to howlers and watched Toucans every day. Some of the best sunsets we have ever seen! The road to the house is steep but manageable with a 4 wheel drive. The only negative comment I have is the bed in the guest room- it creaked horribly and was difficult to get used to. They need to buy a bed that doesn't creak every time you turn over. Other than that, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your good feedback and we are replacing the bed!
