We had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend a stay!
“We loved our stay at Casa Tucan! The house was located near both Uvita and Dominical so we were able to get out and explore the different beaches and natural areas they had to offer. Around the house, we saw plenty of wildlife including toucans, pizotes, and much more. Hanging out near the pool was great and the rancho nearby had everything we needed so we didn't have to run back to the house for anything while we relaxed by the pool. There are public beach accesses near the main road leading to the house so we were able to spend time in the sand without having to travel much at all! The amenities within the house were great for our large group, including a new washer and dryer. Overall, we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend a stay!”

Un gran lugar para visitar en compañía de un grupo de familiares o amigos

Disfruta por la vista al mar
Lugar muy limpio con todas las comodidades, piscina que se disfruta por la vista al mar y el rancho esta equipado y es amplio. La casa tiene balcones con una excelente vista al mar. Ubicación cerca debtodos los lugares para visitar y los administradores dan repuestas rápidas a todas las preguntas, recomendado.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
