This home was everything we expected and more!
Casa La Vista is just stunning! I looked for months for the perfect vacation home for myself, wife and 3 teenagers. I planned most of our Costa Rica vacation around this home, and it proved to be the perfect choice! The layout is so great for relaxing around the pool and decks, and going in and out of the house. Everything in the home is as described. It is very well appointed, and everything is newer and in good working condition. Everything on the property is nice! From the grounds and the pool to the bedding and kitchen utensils, everything is clean, comfortable and well maintained.
Jaguar Property Management is so reliable, attentive, and easy to work with. They helped make our trip seamless. I felt like the quality of our trip was very important to them.
We stayed for 9 days, and barely left the property for the first 3 days. We played and lounged in the awesome pool, and viewed nature and played games on the decks. There is a tree right above the pool that Toucans and other birds like. It was surreal lounging in the pool viewing Toucans a few feet away. We saw and heard Howler Monkeys, numerous birds and butterflies, and on the last day a 3 toed sloth was moving and in excellent view right off the deck. What a treat that was!
This home is just a couple minutes from all the amenities of Uvita, but you feel like you are in the middle of the nowhere in your own little paradise. You need a 4x4 because the short road in is steep. The condition of the little road up to the house is good, and the steep part is paved.
We loved the Jungle ATV tour, the jungle/waterfall horse tour at Rancho La Merced, The Whales Tale, and Uvita Falls. All are less than 10 minutes away! We also enjoyed Nuayaca Falls and Osa Canopy Zipline which were only about 30 minutes away. All of these tours were top notch and safe!
Casa La Vista was everything we expected and more! Many thanks to Tom, Christine and Jaguar Property Management for helping make this the family trip of a lifetime!
Dear Dan, you and your family were a an absolute joy to host, and we are so happy you enjoyed Casa la Vista and all Uvita has to offer. You could stay for weeks and not do/see everything, whether relaxing by the pool, soaking in the sun at our gorgeous beaches, or off having an adventure! Please do return for your next vacation. You are so right, Team Jaguar always says "happy guests, happy life!!" Hurry back ;-)

Paradise is found at Casa La Vista
If first impressions could be given a rating then this house and property gets a plus 10!! Your first impression as you drive into the property is one of beauty and seclusion. When you enter the house you immediately see how impeccably clean and inviting it is. The most amazing thing is when you go up to the main living area and walk outside onto the pool deck/patio and see the Ocean and the huge expanse of pristine Jungle all around you, and now you feel what paradise is like for the rest of your stay. I was so fortunate to have several weeks here in Uvita and check out all the fun new restaurants that Jaguar management told me about and what beaches and things to do and see.
Tom and Christine from Jaguar management were so kind and helpful thru out my stay and made the trip extra special. Waking up every morning to the sounds of birds and Howler monkeys in the most spacious lovely master bedroom and huge bathroom was a great start to an amazing day ahead. The bed was soooo comfortable with high end sheets and plenty of bed pillows to choose from. The bathroom was just as great with lots of fluffy white towels and wonderful Goats Milk soaps in shower and vanity. The owner has spared nothing when it came to offering their guests all the comforts for such an amazing house. Besides the beautiful pool, I found that laying in the hammock on the observation tower deck was the place to be with binoculars as wildlife was right there in the trees 100 feet away. I saw Howlers and White faced monkeys and a Sloth from that vantage point. Went to several farmers market and got the most wonderful fresh fruits and produce. Christine had told me how to find the fish market where I bought some of the most incredible tasting fresh caught fish that I cooked in the most well stocked kitchen for a rental house. I'm already booking another trip here to Casa La Vista next July as I can't think of any place better that has all the beauty, tranquility, seclusion and beautifully decorated house plus everything you need for a perfect vacation.
What a delightful five days at this paradise in Uvita! I found the house first and then planned an 8 day vacation in Costa Rica around this very house! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The pool was delightful and we never tired of the enchanting view. As many other reviewers have said, we did not see the monkeys but we heard them! The house was exactly as depicted in the pictures. The furniture was comfortable and the a/c was great in the bedrooms. The towels were fluffy and abundant. Beach towels and chairs were thoughtfully provided. It was warmer at times in the kitchen and living room but not a problem. You really want to sit outside and we found that we could do so at night and were not particularly bothered at all by the bugs there.
We hired Chef Royner (everyone calls him Roy) and he cooked us a fabulous meal (ceviche, whole red snapper, salad, rice and coconut flan!) which was served outside, We did the Jungle ATV Tour in the rain and it was a highlight of our stay as well! Christine was wonderful. She responded promptly to countless emails (I was concerned about Zika, Dengue etc). You should also know that in this house (and in many in the area) you can not flush the toilet paper in the toilet and must put the paper in a covered waste basket that is next to the toilet. I knew this was the case ahead of time and brought baby wipes which worked well. The wipes are also handy to have to remove the DEET repellent from your hands which you will want to apply when you are out and about in the jungle at even at the many outdoor restaurants. As for restaurants, we highly recommend Citrus, Exotica (both very gourmet) and La Parcela ( a modest place where the monkeys come many days between 4 and 6). One monkey actually showed up the day we were there at 6 pm right before we were about to leave!
Tom was wonderful! He met us in Uvita and led us to the house. He also responded immediately and arranged for a handyman to come to the house to do some minor repairs. He had a wealth of suggestions about activities and restaurants. Thank you for a lovely lovely trip! Gail B.
We're thrilled you loved and enjoyed Casa la Vista so much! You could stay weeks in our little corner of paradise and not see all there is to do and experience. We hope you come back and stay longer ;-)

I finally reached and experienced Nirvana!!
I don't know where to begin telling You,..... but staying at the Casa La Vista was the most relaxing and comfortable... as this fabulous home was in the midst of the Rain Forest/Jungle! Each day to wake up and hear the sounds of the Ocean, Birds (Toucans and Macaws) to mention a few and Monkeys both Howler and White Faced was amazing. Sitting up on a hillside this Home allowed us to see the tops of the Rain Forest and Ocean in the distance while sitting on the Observation deck which we did every day equipped with a Hammock!
This was the Main stay of most days to sit an observe the Beauty of Costa Rica's Jungle habitat doing e-mails, reading or playing games, but in the distance also watching a Sloth eating leaves as it hung from a treetop. You are able to use the wifi and communicate with those you wish back home and share the pleasantry of your Jungle abode. The zero edge pool was Wonderful with patio near by allowing for cooling ourselves each afternoon or sitting in the rain if there was a storm with incredible downpours. The Home was extremely comfortable with most amenities to make living there similar to the comforts of home as the showers were perfect and sleeping in bedding that was soft and Cool with Air Conditioning. The town was small with friendly natives that worked in stores and restaurants and understanding our limited Spanish. Fresh Pacific Ocean Fish was easy to purchase and cook ourselves or food from the Market was just like being back home. I truly recommend a trip to Uvita, Costa Rica for a bit of quiet and Comfort in the Casa La Vista home to help you Relax to the Maximum! Cheers
Happy guests, happy life!! We love Casa la Vista and Uvita too!! So glad you saw the Howlers, sloths and toucans, they are constantly coming to the house and the observation deck is the perfect vantage point. Hope to see you for your next vacation so you can experience even more.
Pura vida ;-)

Beautiful view & incredible animal watching!
We loved our stay at Casa La Vista. The pool was perfect and relaxing after days out exploring. Ventanas Beach a must. ATV tour a highlight! Chef Royner was amazing and we wished we had him for every meal!
We saw sloths, howler monkeys, iguanas, macaws, toucans all right off of the porch.
Evenings are very warm in main living rooms.
Construction a little disappointing all day every day.
Hi Noelle, We're so glad you loved Casa la Vista, Playa Ventanas, our local tours and private chef. The covered observation deck and dining area next to the pool is a comfy vantage point to view all the wildlife. Our guests tell us they wind up spending all their time outside...having their coffee and meals out on the deck so they can enjoy the ocean breeze, ocean and jungle views, and see the animals and birds up close. There is ac in all three bedrooms, however we ask our guests to keep the bedroom doors shut, turn on the 4 ceiling fans in the great room, and open the windows and sliders so the cool breeze can flow through the house. There is a home being built in the neighborhood, but we anticipate completion very soon, and the workers stop in the late afternoon...most guests are out having fun, or at the beach during the day anyway. Hope you return to our little corner of Paradise very soon!!

As Nice As The Pictures!
We saw monkeys, Mcaws and parrots from the awesome patio! We were two couples and had more than enough room in the house but spent most of the time on the patio and in the pool when we weren’t exploring the Uvita area. The home was clean, well appointed, and modern. We really appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, and washer-dryer. Tom from the Jaguar Property Mgt team was very helpful and addressed the minor issues we had and was easy to get ahold of. A few things that we recommend- 1. Arrive before 8:00 pm or you won’t find the house initially. After the first time, it’s easy and very close to town and services. 2. Gotta have a 4-wheel drive vehicle. 3. Do the Jungle ATV tour in Uvita. It’s the best, so fun and very safe. 4. ZIP line at the Osa Canopy Tour. I’m a 50-something woman with a desk job and I DID IT! The zip line guys were so helpful and fun. This house was the perfect home base for Uvita adventures. It’s as nice as the pictures!
Hi Lana, so happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa La Vista! There is so much to do in our area, and this beautiful home is so close and convenient to all the tours and activities! Hurry back ;-) Christine
