This was a beautiful property and exceeded our expectations. Del was very helpful with every aspect and the information he provided regarding the local area, tips on dinner spots, weather, directions to property were all excellent and made the whole process seamless. Alex and Stephanie were very happy and helpful and it was nice knowing they were close by. We will be staying here again for sure! Thanks for everything.
Excellent - A Spectaular Property!
I have traveled to Costa Rica for more than 20 years, and this was by far the best trip I've ever taken because of this house. The view over Uvita is spectacular, and the house is modern, comfortable, and clean. Alex is the caretaker, and he is incredibly helpful, providing excellent service and advice. He really made the stay a pleasure. The wildlife was amazing, and the area on the mountain is beautiful, and I simply cannot recommend this property enough for those seeking a peaceful, luxurious Costa Rica experience. This is a truly special place - I will definitely stay here again. Waking up every morning and seeing that incredible view with the parrots and the toucans and the howler monkeys in the trees was something I will always remember. Thanks to Del and especially to Alex for an incredible stay. If they offered more than five stars, I would gladly rate this place as high as they would allow. Take it from a Costa Rica veteran - this is one of the most special places you could ask for.
Thank you for your kind words.
It is our pleasure to share our home with you and especially when your comments align so wonderfully with our feelings. You are most welcome to come back and we look forward to meeting you in person.Also, check out our other home on the same 13 1/2 acres (Del Congos de Uvita) which has equal but different views which ALEX also caretakes.
Great Stay! House was as advertised
Del made it extremely easy and hassle free. Great place!
Thank you for staying at Del Congos de Uvita! It was my pleasure to make your dream trip a reality from planning the details to making it a reality.
We look forward to your return.
On Top of the World...........or so it felt!
Our family had a tremendous time (our first ever adventure to Costa Rica) and the lovely pacific coast line of Uvita. So glad we chose to make the lengthy but scenic trek south from San Jose to Del's beautiful Oasis (Exotica). Just the expression on our kids (20,17,15) faces when they finally got out of the 4 x 4 (& OH YOU WILL NEED A 4 x 4) was priceless! Not sure what they were expecting but suffice it say there mouths practically hit the pool deck when they saw the stunningly beautiful ocean view that we all would be enjoying for the next week. Del's lovely home met all of our expectations and the weather during our stay even exceeded them. Still thawing out from our extended 2019 Chicagoland winter we had some concern when the forecast was for low to mid 90's and mostly sunny. While it was sunny and beautiful all week it never really felt HOT.....always a lovely cooling ocean breeze and nice mix of a few clouds too. Speaking of cool, Del's pool was just that. The temp was always refreshing morning noon or night and added bonus on each end of the pool was a pretty powerful water jet which proved to be a great way to get a massage after zip-lining or a trip snorkeling with the kids. (By the way I highly recommend both) One of the real treats staying here was Alex & Estephany. Both lovely, helpful when we needed them and always warm and friendly. Alex was so kind one evening to stop at the grocery store in town and pick us up a few things we forgot for dinner. We are thankful that (2) of our kids speak fairly good spanish and I know it was fun for them to talk with A & E and help us out in communicating throughout the week. As for the house itself, beautiful as advertised and you can clearly see a lot of thought went into its creation. We loved seeing the picturesque "whale's tail" from a variety of places (my favorite was the master shower) I also enjoyed the tall jungle trees to the east of the house which provided excellent shade from early morning sun and made a morning swim an every day treat. We really enjoyed dining in Uvita, went with a couple of Del's choices but maybe our favorite was the Mosaic Sushi restaurant (you will pass by it everytime you head up the mountain) Our review is clearly 99% positive. My only request is that you remove the dead/dying tree that is in your lovely oceanside view. Hope we can get back to CR and Uvita......as the locals say Pura Vida, The Leyden Family
Thanks Peggy to you and your family for choosing Del Congos Exotica. We are happy that our “Dream Home” could serve as your base for exploring the Brunca Coast. We believe it is the most beautiful place in Costa Rica as witnessed by the high number of wealthy Costa Ricans who have vacation homes here. Our 13 1/2 acres of primary jungle on a mountain crest (yet so close that you can see and hear waves break) is a very rare setting ( only approximately 10%primary jungle still remains) and something that we treasure. If you were a toucan , Cusinga, monkey or other exotic birds and animals where would you choose to live? Only the National Parks have this setting yet here at Del Congos Exotica it’s just for you !
Our Mountain View is absolutely declared the best by everyone who visits or stays here . But don’t take my word for it , come and experience it first hand.
Pura Vida at its best!
The PERFECT retreat. A small group of us rented this home perched on the mountainside overlooking Playa Ballena. The house is a ten minute drive up from town, yet when you reach the home you feel like you are miles away in a remote part of Costa Rica . The drive up is an adventure a 4x4 is essential, however the roads are very well maintained. We loved the ride to and from town. The house is beautifully sited on the property, south facing giving the home the perfect views to the sunrise, the whales tale and the setting sun. The landscaping was beautifully executed and maintained, along with the pool and the home's interior. The caretaker Alex was such a great help to have onsite. He explained everything in detail and was very helpful when needed. The infinity pool and outdoor shower were the perfect ending to the days adventures. Uvita is my favorite part of Costa Rica centrally located, yet away from all the commercial development. I have visited this part of Costa Rica many times in the past and rented homes in this area but by far this has been my favorite. This home far exceeded our expectations, the question isn't will we return but when. Thank you for a great stay we all had a blast. Pura Vida!!
Tracy and friends,
It was our pleasure to open our home to you and your group. Your words are much appreciated and we look forward to your return! Don’t forget that we have a second house(Del Congos de Uvita) on our 13 1/2 acres so next time you can bring even more friends!
Beautiful Jungle setting with great views
Perfect place to experience Costa Rica and especially Uvita. It's about a 20 minute driver up the mountain side which I really enjoyed (wife not so much). Like everyone said you will need a 4x4 to make the trip. Once to the house its like sitting on top of Uvita. It was just me and my wife and house was perfect for us. Every morning we would see a variety of birds and coati running around. We were there at the end of rainy season but the rain would hit and then we would get mostly nice days. we love being close the national parks and locals were all very friendly. The only negative thing I could say about the house and it wasn't that bad is it was tough keeping the hot water on in the showers. The house was super clean and we didn't have any problems with insects in the house. The layout has two master suits which would be great for two couples or a family vacation. If you want to feel like your in the jungle away from it all but stay in an upscale house this is one you need to try.
Thank you for staying at Del Congos Exotica. Our spring fed water is some of the cleanest in the world, because it comes right out of a spring. Occasionally, the double filter system in the house will get a little restricted causing the on demand Hot water flow to fluctuate. We have since put in new filters and it is fine. Yes, we are on a point on the mountain thus the only home that has such spectacular views and the privacy and wildlife of PRIMARY Jungle with 100+ foot trees. We are glad you were able to enjoy our home.
