Description

If you enjoy the constant sound of waves crashing throughout the day, huge and sweeping Pacific Ocean views and amazing wildlife nearby, then Casa Tucan is for you and your group! Did I mention the beach is a 5 minute car ride away? Playa Hermosa is a simple, drive down the mountain from this 3-story home.

The home rests at 630 feet (192 meters) of elevation.

There are porches on the western side of the second floor, and over half of the square footage on the third floor is a large open space. This space is fantastic to watch sunsets from, to enjoy spending time together with your travel group or just to have an afternoon coffee (or Imperial beer).

The second floor has two bedrooms, the kitchen and the living room. In addition, there is a wonderful patio to relax and to enjoy.

Bedroom 1: King size bed
Bedroom 2: Two, twin-beds
Bedroom 3: One queen bed.

Located just a short 5 minute drive to beautiful Playa Hermosa. Playa Hermosa is a beautiful beach and one of the few beaches in the area with lifeguards on duty during daylight hours.

We saw so many TOUCANS!!
We understand why they call this house Casa Tucan. Every day we saw toucans eating and singing in the nearby trees. They are such a pretty bird. There were plenty of other birds also (I just don't know their names). We went to Playa Hermosa (minutes from the villa)almost everyday. Be sure not to leave valuables in the car (Osa Property Management told us that - and we listened and didn't have any troubles). We also did a 'cacao tour' that was very close (10 min from property). Cacao is the main ingredient in chocolate. We loved it here.

4x4 Vehicle Needed
The views are great and the location was convenient. Be sure to rent a 4x4 as the home is up a mountain. Huge property.

Muliti-Generational Family Trip
We had a multi-generational family trip planned to Costa Rica and we were concerned about finding the right home for all of us. We enjoyed Casa Tucan. We were very close to Uvita and the tours and the shopping, as well as close to Dominical and the surfing and beachlife. A couple of days the Grandparents stayed at the home and enjoyed time at the pool while the rest of us went out and explored. Plenty of space and we never felt like we were bumping into each other or in each other's way. Free Laundry (washer/dryer) on site was nice.

Minutes from the beach
We love spending time at the beach on our vacations. Casa Tucan was perfect! We simply jumped in the car, went down the hill, and in about 5 minutes we were at Playa Hermosa. An awesome beach. Located near Uvita so we were close to grocery stores, coffee shops and liquor store. Osa Property Management lined up some tours for us, and the entire trip was awesome!

Great for large groups
We had a large group of people (10) and we were all comfortable the entire time. The living room is a bit small to get all 10 of us in there but we were in Costa Rica to enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer - not to watch TV. The pool area and deck and outdoor space was fantastic! We grilled in the covered space near the pool, enjoyed Imperials and even blended a few cocktails. The bedrooms are spread out and we all had space.

James
Felt like an estate
The property is large - several acres at least. Plenty of parking. The home is older, but large, with plenty of new furnishings and ample ocean view deck and patio space. The pool area has a covered entertainment area that we really enjoyed.
