|My friends and I had a great time at this property. All of the beds were comfortable and there was tons of outdoor seating. The house is gated and there is a security system so there’s no need to stress if you’re away from the property. You NEED a 4x4 vehicle as the roads are extremely steep and the turns are sharp. The hosts were responsive to all of my messages. Would visit this property again.|

|Place was absolutely beautiful, we got to see monkeys every day, both howler and spider monkeys, several bird species, breathtaking views, wonderful pool and outdoor space. We look forward to coming back again soon|

Die Casa Honu Kai ist eine Perle!
Das Haus lag in den Hügeln über Uvita. Sie lag komplett im Grünen mit einer tollen Sicht auf die Natur und das Meer. Man konnte mehrere Tiere von der Unterkunft aus beobachten (Tucan, Affen, Kolibris, Schmetterlinge, Spechte, Greifvögel, Agutis usw), das war wirklich besonders!
Die Unterkunft ist sehr ruhig gelegenen. Man ist komplett für sich.
Das Haus ist wie abgebildet unf super schön.
Die Klimaanlagen sind super leise, echt toll. Und die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, haben uns immer leckere Frühstücke gemacht.
Die Komunikation war sehr einfach und gut. Es wurde eine Chatgruppe gemacht, und sie haben immer schnell und gut geholfen, falls es ein Problem gab.
Der Pool und Außenbereich ist auch wunderbar.
Einfach ein wundervoller Aufenthalt!!!

We chose this for lush landscape & exterior! At checkin strong mold smell. Spent a few days trying to problem solve, found leak under kitchen sink producing black mold pushing through exterior wall, painted over, clearly preexisting problem, OSA said never had previous complaint & offered an alternate (with a barren landscape), said there were other options, we asked 2X to see… never shown. We closed doors to the main living area, ran the AC, slept in hammocks as needed & spent days outside. OSA fixed leak turning off the hot water in kitchen, never had hot water to the main bath sink, 1 day with almost no water when pump failed (told OSA of problem, unacknowledged until broken), no AC 1 BR remote broken as was TV. NEVER book to families with small children, no or inadequate restriction to falls to the pool deck, from sidewalk & Rancho into the ravine; would be tragic. No response to 3 requests for partial refund. Lovely on site service people, beautiful yard & much wildlife to enjoy.
Cory, Upon your complaints, we IMMEDIATELY offered you a new home, also with ocean views. You chose to ignore that message for over two days and then decided you were comfortable staying at the house. Our maintenance team and A/C technician both saw members of your group smoking on the property. A clear violation of our rules. We offered you a new home and we declined your offer of a refund because we provided you the opportunity for new home, also with ocean views, next to the jungle, but you declined it. We're sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us at the property. We wish you the best in the future. Safe travels! Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas

|High above Beautiful Uvita|
|The house provided everything we needed. The pool with the view was fantastic daily. Kitchen is fully stocked. I would recommend a 4 wheel drive due to it being way up the unpaved hills. Privacy was important to us, and this house fit the bill. We had monkey visits almost daily. We enjoyed a lot of our time just hanging out at the house. Outdoor area perfect for entertaining.|

|Vacation in the trees|
Costa Rica was one of our families best vacations ever, for the following reasons. 1. Location: The house and patio is literally in the jungle amongst the trees. If you want the true CR experience of waking up to Howler Monkeys 50 yards from your patio and spider monkeys 5 feet away in the trees this is the place. The patio and pool are as advertised and definitely the highlight.
2. You 100% need an 4x4 vehicle to get to the house (and to drive in CR). Your first drive up and down from the house gets some getting used to especially the first night. After that though, the drive up and down to the house is easy and without stress.
3. I also have to say that house management company and staff at OSA Management were excellent. We had some flight / travel issues that were not the fault of the property and they were extremely helpful and friendly assisting us.
4. The house itself is nice. I give it a 4 out of 5 only because it is a bit dark and the layout is a bit weird. The house isn't what I would call run down, but it is a bit worn. Lighting in the evening is a dim at best and the kitchen utensils, flatware, plates etc., definitely show the wear and tear of being a vacation rental. None of these items impacted our stay or joy, but I do think the owners should invest a few hundred bucks for updating / replenishing plates, glasses, kitchen knives etc.
Bottom line, none if this is major we would definitely stay at this property again.

This house is amazing! I would highly recommend staying here. There was a lot of intentionality in how the house was set up. Very close to nature with troops of monkeys swinging through daily. The pool was great. Felt very secluded but pretty close to town. We would love to return one day. Definitely 5 stars!!
Josh, It was a pleasure to host you and thank you for the review of Casa Honu Kai. Please keep Osa Property Management | Costa Rica Las Villas, in mind for all of your future Costa Rica travel needs as our inventory has grown to over 40 vacation rentals. Pura vida!

|The property is beautiful and the house was great for 3 couples. We loved hanging out by the pool and outdoor kitchen when we weren't at the beach. Definitely keeping this place in mind for future stays.|
|Derek (review from Airbnb)|
|Great view, nice property and house, would recommend.|
|Erika (review from Airbnb)|
|Stunning home - perfect Costa Rica representation. We saw two sloths on the property - the biggest male I have ever witnessed and a fast moving female. Saw toucans and a hummingbird moth chrysalis! Beautiful dart frog right on the patio and howler monkeys and white faced monkeys as well as so many birds! We also saw a baby agouti and a large coati. Truly the pool was magnificent and the gazebo was the perfect morning coffee spot. All the grill amenities and pizza oven was such a nice added surprise. The house was stocked with plenty of towels and the laundry room was a good add. I will definitely rent here again - do keep in mind that the road is very challenging but the 4x4 managed it well even during the rain. Just take it slow. Did I mention the beautiful landscaping? Thanks for a memorable time.|
|Nathan (review from Airbnb)|
|Really beautiful house with a stunning view of the sea surronded by the jungle. Would defintely go again.|
|David (review from Airbnb)|
Es un lugar con mucha paz.
Realmente se requiere de vehículo 4x4 para poder llegar.
El dormitorio principal es muy amplio con una excelente vista, tome en cuenta que las gradas son muy empinadas para subir al dormitorio.
|Jessica (review from Airbnb)|
This home was perfect for our family! We love to have a home base to cook and relax on rainy days and this home made us feel like we had a private bit of paradise to return to.
We enjoyed seeing the monkeys playing in the nearby trees, the various lizards visiting the fountain and pool, and birdwatching from the porch.
We would definitely stay here again.
|Laura (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a wonderful time at this place! The view is amazing and everything was very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed and things we didn't even know we'd need! There was amble space outside for the four of us to relax. As other reviewed have said, the road to the place is quite steep. However, we managed just fine in our vehicle. If we had any issues, our host was quick to respond and help out with sightseeing recommendations! We would highly recommend staying at this place!|
|John (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home in a beautiful location. Great A/C. Appliances all new. Washer and drier were a huge plus. Would definitely stay again. Road up to the house is very demanding, make sure you have a 4x4.|
|Kelly (review from Airbnb)|
|The pictures of this place do it no justice. It’s literally the most gorgeous property and view I have ever booked. Communication was great and they send you a link of what kinds of restaurants and experiences you may want to do! We saw monkeys while we swam and a few other indigenous creatures of the rainforest. If you are going to rent a car, MAKE SURE ITS A 4x4. They do tell you that on their amentities page but wish they would have really specified further. The roads going up to the property can be extremely difficult if you do not have a 4x4 vehicle. Other than that, this was the perfect place for vacation.|
|Desiree (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful place, great location. We saw lizards, a sloth, toucans, and a green & black dart frog. Comfortable and clean stay.|
|Priscila (review from Airbnb)|
This house was exactly like the pictures, great view from the mountain top, pool is clean, in the middle of a jungly property with lots of animal sounds. Communication was flawless and service was attentive. Access to the property requires a 4WD or at least a big car. Master bedroom was very comfortable, the two bedrooms slightly less comfortable and the bathroom they share is not very convenient as one of the bedrooms has direct access to it.
Thanks for your stay at the home. We hope to see you again soon - we have other options available to choose from for your next trip. Pura vida! Osa Property Management Offices in Uvita and Manuel Antonio
