Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Uvita - Casa Namaste

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

I fell in love with this property because of the uniqueness of it . I believe you will too. It sits high above two river valleys and adjacent to a waterfall below, easily accessable. You will want to be there every day. If you would like , let us prepare a picnic basket for you.

The casita was newly built in 2011, highlighting Asian characteristics with indoor outdoor living thanks to sliding glass doors that disappear into the wall for total access to the pool area. There are two bedrooms with private baths off each. The master has an outdoor shower and indoor Jacuzzi . The living area is accented by a gas fireplace that can certainly be enjoyed many times a year. There is a small patio adjacent to the pool and jungle that we use for private sunbathing , stargazing and yoga. A/C is available in the bedrooms but not necessary as there is always a flowing through the casita during the day. It can be chilly at night.

There is so much to offer that it is best to see the pictures and write Mercedes with any other questions you may have .

Pura Vida!!

Gorgeous retreat

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this home. This area is very special and filled with new experiences. We enjoyed the open and relaxing beautiful home. Merecedes was so helpful pointing out and helping us schedule activities like the surfing and a guided jungle walk. We enjoyed the monkeys and many variety of birds. We want to come back to this special place and stay in casa namaste!

Family Vacation...Wow!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house and location!!! Casa Namaste exceeded our expectations. Here’s the quick rundown:

* Secluded jungle mountain location with a view of a jungle valley canopy extending far out to the ocean.

* Amazing home that was comfortable and had everything we needed and more.

* A great patio and pool that was the stage to a jaw-dropping view.

* Kids loved the sweet bananas right from the property.

* A group of howler monkeys and chestnut-mandibled toucans, not at a wildlife refuge or eco-tour, but right off the deck of the house!

Mercedes made this a vacation we’ll never forget, from scheduling a horseback riding tour and a surf lesson to recommending places to eat. Linn thank you for sharing your wonderful home, and thank you Mercedes and Chuck for making this vacation one of the best we’ve ever had.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Casa Namaste! We arrived late our first evening and after a long day of travel we were pleased to see a bottle of wine waiting for us :) The next morning we woke up to the spectacular views, we then drove into town got groceries and drinks and went right back to have our own private pool party. What a great day! Would recommend to anyone (but be sure to get 4x4 vehicle). Also, the small river below the property was beautiful. I walked upstream for a good half hour and just explored and felt one with the jungle lol... Special thanks to Mercedes for her help!

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the best vacation yet. We all want to move to Costa Rica and live on road to San Josecito, seriously! Not sure what divine providence sent us to this house but I feel like it was just that. It is absolutely beautiful. Isolated enough to feel like you have truly escaped but close enough to get what you need. Mercedes is super helpful in arranging adventures, recommending eats, suggesting places to see, etc. We are already working on getting back. It is truly a very special place and we feel super lucky to have experienced it.

Absolutely amazing expierence

  • 5 of 5

We had quite possibly the best vacation of our life when we visited Costa Rica. This vacation rental is truly a 5 star retreat. If you value privacy, views, and comfort then this place is a must stay! The property manager, Mercedes, was extremely accommodating and provided us with fantastic suggestions on restaurants, hang out spots, and even set us up with surf lessons. We loved our stay here so much that it has a seriously considering moving to Costa Rica!

My suggestion is stop and get enough groceries for your stay because you will not want to leave once you get to Casa Namaste. It is stunningly beautiful and so private. You feel like you have the entire jungle to yourself. It is a perfect place for relaxation😍
