About Del Chmielewski

My wife and I have lived in Wisconsin all our lives. I own a CPA firm and love to travel to exotic places. This is our dream retirement home. We also have lots available for sale.

Del Chmielewski purchased this house in 2009

Why Del Chmielewski chose Uvita

In 2000 a friend recommended that we visit the Uvita Costa Rica area. We fell in love with the area and bought land in 2002. It is the only area on the Pacific Coast where the mountains come right down to the ocean making it the most dramatic landscape. Uvita area has the following amenities: National Park with Whale Watching,200-500ft waterfalls,Best Deep-sea fishing in World,Most eco-diversity in World, Many Americans who live there. I call it the "Naples of Costa Rica".

Del Congo de Uvita - A Paradise on Earth!

  • 5 out of 5
This was an incredible journey! We arrived at the house, up the huge mountain and felt as if we were in paradise! The view was beyond stunning and it was so peaceful. We loved the indigenous town of Uvita. The description of the home and area was exactly as expected.

Del has an amazing household team: Alex and Estefany, who are wonderfully warm, helpful and friendly people. Without them, the trip would not have been as enjoyable...they were there for our every need and we miss them! They both made sure that every detail was taken care of for us and always explained how to get to places; they cleaned the home everyday while we were gone and we always returned to fresh laundry!

Thank you to Del for also ensuring that our trip was the best it could be; he stayed in contact with us throughout the trip, checking in to make sure our stay was a good one! His home couldn't have been more relaxing after a long day of horseback riding, waterfall excursions, ATV'ing, boating, and more. Not only do you have an amazing view but the home has doors that open on all sides and you feel as if you a living among nature in the rainforest. Even when it did rain, we sat out on the patio with drinks and listened to the sounds of rain and animals.

We experienced seeing a slow sloth in a tree one day, toucan birds and heard the roars of monkeys. We also saw a colorful macaw bird and baby monkeys playing in a local restaurant, among the trees. There are many wonderful beaches to explore every single day along the coast - some in the national parks and better ones outside of the park - especially Play Ventana, our favorite private beach, not far from Uvita. Also make sure to check out the Tilapias El Pavon restaurant near the Punta Mala de Osa bridge - it has an amazing waterfall on the grounds (INCREDIBLE!!).

We don't have too many criticisms; we didn't have any bug biting problems and the house was bug free aside from a visit or two from a gecko; the ride up and down the mountain takes some getting used to as it is somewhat steep and narrow, but we just took it slow; we even stopped at Del's small yet beautiful waterfall on the grounds.

Overall the trip was the perfect adventurous type vacation you dream of and the local people are extremely friendly; you feel safe all the time and only have to relax and enjoy the beautify surroundings. We will definitely return some day.

Thank you Del, Alex and Estefany for such a lovely memory!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I really enjoy helping guests plan their vacations which are a very special time spent with family and friends. From the preplanning literature, to booking tours for guests, to arranging transportation.
It is so nice to hear someone describe so accurately some of the reasons that make "Del Congos de Uvita " such an incredible place!
I would like to clarify one point about the road up. We are in an international development which overlooks 50 miles of ocean coastline which has a Road Association which maintains the roads.Yes , the roads are steep in parts but well maintained and there are a few spots where it is tight for two cars to pass however the end result is spectacular and well worth the short drive. We look forward to your return to our definition of "Paradise on Earth"

Beautiful view, wonderful caretakers!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four (two kids-ages 9 & 12) had a wonderful week here, thanks to the kind caretakers, Alex & Estefany. We enjoyed two delicious dinners with them, even my picky eaters loved their cooking. Our kids attend a spanish immersion program in CA, and Alex & Estefany spent hours talking with them. It was a fantastic way for the kids to learn about the Costa Rican culture, practice their spanish and enjoy getting to know new people. They took great pride in taking care of this beautiful home, and it was our pleasure to tip them generously for all their hard work.
We enjoyed exploring Uvita and the surrounding beaches and waterfalls. It's always refreshing to find beaches that are wide open and empty, Playa Ventanas was a favorite. We would head out after breakfast and spend the day out and about, returning every afternoon for dinners at home, with a few spectacular thunderstorms throughout the week. If you are looking for a unique, tranquil home this is the perfect place for you. It has everything you need for an adventurous, yet relaxing trip.

The view can not be matched!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent our days at the local beaches swimming or working on a photo shoot. The location can not be matched and the recommended restaurants are terrific. We spent our mornings cooking breakfast and watching the sun rise. During the day it was off to the beaches which are very close. We would return to the house change clothes and relax by the pool to see the grate view of the ocean followed by dinner at one of the recommended restaurants.

The bedrooms are well maintained and cleaned daily at a time of your choosing and the kitchen is well stocked so you can visit the local store and cook your own meals if you so choose. Typically we cooked breakfast and lunch unless driving to the zip line or horseback excursions.

Owner's Response: Jeff,
Thanks for staying at "Del Congos de Uvita". I know that you loved the privacy of our 13 acres afforded you and your group yet close to town and the beaches for your photo shoot.It sounds like our staff gave you privacy when you wanted yet the house was always impeccably clean.
As you stated in your title, the views are the very best with over 50 miles of coastline view.
We hope that you come visit us again as we are building another two bedroom house 50 yards below the main house with a lap pool which should be finished in Spring 2015.

Great for all ages

  • 5 out of 5
Del, thank you for the stay at your beautiful home. The views are spectacular and the wildlife even better. Howler monkeys on the property and tucans flying all around. The trek up was an adventure as others mentioned and a 4 wheel drive is a must. After a few times it was a piece of cake. The beaches are awesome and the horseback ride was spectacular for my wife and I, kids (10 and 12) as well as their grandparents. We fished and caught a roosterfish and various other fish w/Cpt Kevin-good times. Surfing lessons in Dominical were great as well. Wish we could have stayed a month or two. Thanks again for all the tips you provided and checking in on us! Alex and Stephanie were also very kind bringing fruit, juice and homemade cookies. Thanks and hope to be back soon!!! Take care, Dean

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this luxury mountain villa with another couple and had a great vacation in Costa Rica. It was a very unique experience in that the villa is located in a very private setting up in the mountains overlooking the ocean. The views are breathtaking! The first few times driving up/down the mountain road was a bit unnerving, but after that is wasn't a big deal. The staff that take care of the villa (Alex & Estephany) are wonderful! They made sure we were well taken care of, kept the house clean, and did laundry for us every day! We definitely didn't need to pack as much as we did since we always had clean clothes. The villa has many nice amenities, including a great kitchen!

The best of the best

  • 5 out of 5
Renting this villa is and was one of the best vacation experiences I have been able to share with my family. Can't say enough about the ambience, location and accomodations to make this such a memorable trip. On site support staff was excellent, helpful and available. What a paradise of sight and sound! For those who like being off the beaten path, this is the place to be. All the activity and dining recommendations were spot on. Spectacular sunsets are the norm and the food choices worth a little travel. La Parcela, Hacinda Baru, Marina Bellina, the list goes on for all the things to do. My family is already clamoring for a return trip. I would recommend this property unreservedly! I know reviews like this are hard to believe but all I can say is you have to experience it because some things are hard to put into words. PS. I do have the pictures to prove it!

Owner's Response: Paul,
It was a pleasure to share my retirement estate with you and your family.
I believe planning a vacation to an unfamiliar destination can be difficult and that is why I personally get so involved in helping my guests to "make it a trip of a lifetime". From offering airport pickup , tour booking, favorite restaurants list, and even renting my car to them. I am constantly working on training my staff to provide the best service as well as constantly adding amenities to my home. Your review is testimony that my hard work as well as my staffs is living up to and exceeding my guests expectations. I look forward to helping you plan your next stay at "Del Congos de Uvita"
