As Nice As The Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Incredible Home in the Rainforest!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 staying at Casa La Vista in February, the house was just as described and more beautiful than the pictures. The house is well equipped and very tastefully decorated down to the last detail, the owner has thought about everything to make guests comfortable at this home. The inside and outside space was stunning, bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable, kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The surrounding forest around you as far as the eye can see is buzzing with wildlife. We saw lots of birds, bugs and sounds all around us, our only disappointment was we didn’t see any monkeys but heard them most mornings. The house is far enough away you can enjoy privacy but close enough to the uvita town to get essentials. The drive up to the house is very steep and requires a 4x4, although we walked it daily up and down daily which was great exercise.

Jaguar were super helpful from time of booking to check-in to checkout, they are knowledgeable of the area and helped with local recommendations etc. We would highly recommend Casa La Vista and Uvita is a definite return in the future. Thank you to Tom and Christine.

Wonderful escape

  • 5 of 5

Casa la Vista is a beautiful home in a lovely, private setting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, surrounded by the sounds

of the rainforest. The team at Jaguar made sure we were taken care of.

Hope to return again.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home. The outdoor areas were amazing. We loved the pool and watching the monkeys and birds from the deck. It was very private without being in the middle of nowhere. The house was well stocked, and bedroom ACs worked great. Everything was very clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable.

Only downsides were the lack of AC in the living room. It got very hot and stuffy even with the windows open. And there is no full size oven, just toaster oven. The driveway to the property is very steep, but 4wd it was no problem. Even with these downsides, it was still the perfect place for our family.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends!!

Incredible house with everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This house looked amazing when we booked, and it didn't disappoint.

The House

Having a drink in the pool watching the activity in the jungle was great.

Furnishings in the house were new and clean.

Couch was comfortable and a nice place to watch TV if you were so inclined.

Beds were awesome. Reminded me of dream mattresses from a high end hotel.

AC in the bedrooms kept it cool for sleeping.

No AC in the main areas, but it is not needed with the windows and breeze.

Outside dining area was great for breakfast and socializing in the evening.

From the porch we saw monkeys, toucans', and bats.


This was really scary the first trip up. The rental agreement says 4x4 required, and yes it is. It is common for the driveways and side streets to have outrageous grades, but it still took some getting used to. After a few days, I was driving it without issue.


Uvita is a nice town with plenty of restaurant choices, two grocery stores and of course an ample amount of choices to sit and drink an adult beverage. Jolly Rogers should be on your "to-do" list if you like wings.

The beach is incredible. Water was warmer than expected. Sand was dark, but not completely black. We found a spot and were the only souls on the beach for at least a mile.

About an hour drive to Manual Antonio nature preserve.

Several good waterfalls in the area

Communication with Jaguar Property Management was great. We met and they drove us to the house and walked us through everything. They also came to the house the day we departed to check us out. Super friendly and professional.

Overall, I love this place and plan on spending more time there in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Kristi, so glad you loved Casa La Vista and our much to do and see! 4x4 is needed to get up the short concrete driveway, and to explore the area, and enjoy the incredible views from the mountain jungle overlooking the ocean. Hope to see you next year! Christine

An Amazing Memory

  • 5 of 5

Casta La Vista, is such an appropriate name for this exquisite home.The view of the ocean beyond the lush Pacific Rainforest was a daily feeling of calmness.The excitement to be awaken by the sounds of the Howler Monkeys, the Tucans, Parrots, Macaws, and the ever so varied in color Tanagers, made waking up at 530 am a thrill, of never knowing what visual experience you'll have next.

This beautifully decorated home is enhanced by the outdoor seating areas, the 'In The Jungle' observation deck, the pool (always a perfect temperature), the comfort of the beds(and bedding), the anything you need kitchen with dining room, and a great couch to watch actual American TV.

The Costa Rican people are very kind and helpful.We enjoyed their family beach Sundays,their Christmas celebrations,thier grocery stores and the Soto's, family restaurants.Taking advantage of Zip lining, the Surfers, walks to discover waterfalls, and the romantic seaside restaurants is a must.

This 20 day memory is one we wish could have shared with all our friends. This Casta La Vista, was''Above and Beyond' all our expectations'

Thank you to Jaguar Property Management, Christine and Tom, who were always available when needed.

Linda and John, Canada.
