About Anne Stawiski

One of us was born and raised in Costa Rica, the other fell in love with Costa Rica 25 years ago as a volunteer English teacher living and working in CR. We married in Costa Rica, and plan to retire in Costa Rica eventually. We decided to build our retirement home early and rent it out so others can enjoy the experience we love so much. We built the ideal home we want to live in, so we know others will love it as well.

Anne Stawiski purchased this house in 2017

Why Anne Stawiski chose Uvita

This property has the best of everything, ocean view, jungle view, animal watching, private setting with no neighbors close by, close to town, easy access, ecological, and is in mint condition. Plus, when you rent this property, you will have the chance to meet a local Costa Rican family (our brother is our Property Manager) and experience the generosity and happy attitude that is characteristic of the Costa Rican people.

What makes this house unique

The Unicorn House is unique with both it’s extreme accessibility and amazing ocean views. The private drive is close to the main road, yet the home is removed from any noise, creating an atmosphere of a private jungle. This vacation home is also very family friendly as safety is our priority. Casa Unicornio Azul is in a safe location and the home is equipped with the latest security system that is regularly updated. Additionally, the roads leading to the property are safe and do not require precarious mountain travel.

Amazing stay in Uvita

  • 5 of 5

First time visiting Costa Rica with family and friends and we treated ourselves to a luxurious home! A total of four adults and five children ranging in ages from 5-12years old shared this newly built home and it worked perfectly for us!

First off, before we got there the property owner was in constant communication with us regarding the amenities available at the house and assured us we would be in good hands with the property manager should any problems/needs arise. Henry cleaned the pool on mornings(large bugs end up in pools-it’s just what happens in Costa Rica) and when an issue with the front door lock occurred, he came out and changed the entire lock system that very day! Even when we requested a hammock be placed on the upstairs balcony, Henry came out and took care of this for us too!

The home featured two amazing master bedrooms upstairs, and two additional bedrooms downstairs. Each master bedroom has a beautiful full size bathroom along with plenty of storage space and a more than adequate closet system. The downstairs bedrooms provided ample space for all of our kids which included a futon being placed in one of the rooms for an additional bed. Between the downstairs bedrooms was a full size bathroom to share and an additional half bathroom was located between the kitchen and laundry room(Brand new washer and dryer proved very useful).

The living room hosted plenty of room for dinner and accommodated even three more adults and three more kids as we had friends over each day! The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities and there was plenty of plates/cups/cutlery etc.

The patio provided space for eating/lounging, and mostly provided the perfect platform to view the most perfect sunsets! I must say the view from the home is worth a thousand words! Whether you enjoy the view from the patio or the upstairs balcony(large enough to accommodate two loveseats and a hammock or two) it truly is tranquility!

The pool is perfect for swimming/cooling/playing needs and is nestled between the house and a large outdoor palapa(hut) perfect for additional covered space needs and stocked with an outdoor refrigerator and propane grill for outdoor entertaining. With an outdoor shower along the pool and a nearly completed bathroom(Bathroom was not finished during our trip), the outdoor area made everything flow wonderfully at the house.

The house is centrally located in Uvita and provides nearby access to several beaches.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is absolutely wonderful! The house is brand new with high end furnishings and designed really well. Everything was very clean. The kitchen and living room are open concept and spacious which is great for spending time together. The bedrooms and beds are very comfortable. We absolutely love the pool and patio - almost all of our dinners were alfresco enjoying the beautiful ocean views and sunsets. We would highly recommend this beautiful home!

Review of Casa Unicornio Azul

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 week stay at Casa Unicornio Azul over Christmas/New Year’s 2017 very much! This is a beautiful new construction with many unique features. The easy access to the property from the main road made it convenient to enjoy the beach, local tourist attractions, restaurants, etc. We loved the panoramic ocean view, we have stayed at other places in the area, and this was definitely the best view we have seen! The amazing infinity swimming pool was lovely, and the shaded gazebo was nice on hot days to relax in the hamocs. The amenities were comfortable, nice kitchen, air conditioning, WIFI, alarm, fence, and best of all beautiful and private balconies, decks, and gardens. No visible neighbors so we felt we had the entire mountain to ourselves, without the long drive! We felt very safe and secure as well. The service was incredible, Henry the property manager ensured every detail was to our satisfaction. He really went the extra mile to make sure we felt at home in the house. We definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great vacation in the Uvita area. PURA VIDA!
