“Garden of Eden”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The days we lived at Casitas del Rio were by far the best of the three weeks we spent in Costa Rica. Wonderful, comfortable and spotless clean cabins (with proper mosquito nets) surrounded by a lavish gardens in the middle of nowhere, just in front of a creek, with plenty of open air space to have breakfast with the hummingbirds or just lay down under a sky full of stars, surrounded by the noise of the forest and the fireflies, or to read under the cover of the fantastic cabin's porch meanwhile a majestic storm thunders outside. As awesome as it sounds. The area is also beautiful, with great beaches around (not just Marino Ballena) and quiet good life, but honestly, you can spend the whole day at Casitas del Rio with no regrets.

Liked best: Everything was perfect!
Liked least: Well, just a minor thing, the shower haven't much pressure and the cold/hot water balance was tricky but you can't expect proper pipes in Paradise, right?

“This is a gem of a place in a great location.”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a little gem of a place....what a find! It is well located for Uvita and surrounding area including great beaches, Ballenas Marine Zoological park, whale watching trips and surfing....it is also within easy reach of the Sierpe river and Osa peninsula for trips there. The Casita is the usual basic layout and is very well equipped, including toaster, coffee maker & microwave....the room is comfortable with nice boutique touches and a good bed....it also has a great shower....rare in Costa Rica! My most favourite thing about this accommodation was the garden and surrounding secondary forest, it is alive with birds hummingbirds and butterflies I spotted around 35 species just sitting at the picnic table, including toucans, parrots, honey creepers and an early morning visit from 12 macaws....real birders would see even more. The river setting is tranquil, calming and cooler than beach areas....getting to the waterfall and natural pool is very manageable. Rachel & Steven are gracious welcoming hosts, we were the only guests and while they made sure we knew they were there if we needed anything but they are not at all intrusive and it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They make lots of invaluable information available and Rachels day out itinerarys were very helpful. You will need a car to stay here..Rachel & Steven booked one on our behalf for our stay and it was delivered to us...they also booked a whale watching trip for us..saw humpback whales & Dolphins.
