About Claire & Carol
Living in southern California, our family has always enjoyed outdoor activities at the Beach, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, Nature, and hiking. Our interests then were a perfect fit to purchase a home at the beach in Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula. Our favorite beaches near us in the Osa Peninsula are Playa Ballena, Playa Ventanas, and Playa Hermosa. Also our favorite restaurants are La Fogata in Uvita and Exotica in Ojochal.
Claire & Carol purchased this Cabin in 2006
What makes this Cabin unique
Casita Kristina Maria is located in the Uvita area in a private, gated eco-community, and protected wildlife reserve. It is an ideal setting for viewing the flora and fauna of more than 100 acres of primary and secondary Rain forest, streams, waterfalls, and hiking trails. The Casita is surrounded by the rain forest jungle. Relax to the sound of the creek babbling through rain forest. You'll be lulled to sleep by croaking frogs and the sounds of the jungle at night. Awaken to the distinct roar of howler monkeys as they traverse through the jungle, and the squawking of green parrots flying overhead . When the surf is big, you can sometimes hear the waves crashing on the beach. Included in the rental is access to our Beach Club. The Beach Club has a beach side restaurant, bar, swimming pool, restroom facilities, shower, free beach parking, and a palm-lined trail to the beach. It is a beautiful tropical beach with views of Tres Hermanas rocks and Isla de Cano. The ocean water temperature is a warm 80-88 degrees year-round. Monkeys and scarlet macaws are often sighted in the trees surrounding the beach.

A cabin in paradise.
Our stay at Casita Kristina more than met our expectations. The cabin was clean, airy, and afforded the wonderful sounds and sights of the rainforest with its abundant wildlife (toucans, monkeys, parrots, butterflies, etc). It is sniggled into the side of the rainforest and still has a magnificent view of the Pacific. We hiked, swam, and took a boat tour of the Sierpe River along which we could observe an incredible variety of wildlife. The proximity to Uvita made grocery shopping and dining at restaurants easy. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, helping us to maximize some of the areas beauty. Sitting on the porch in the mornings and evenings was a treat we'll not forget.
Clean, charming with a great view
We loved our time in Claire and Bud's casita. The view is breath taking. The cabin was rustic but spotless and had all modern convenineces and more.
Loved watching the sun sink into the ocean and enjoying the sounds of the jungle. The owners were awesome- could not have been more accomodating. The water went off briefly and Clair lugged up a bucket of water to us in the heat of the day...over the top on service. Really kind and intelligent people, fun to get to know them.The road was well cared for and a quick 12 minutes (3.2km) to the highway. Although the driveway is very steep it was actually easy to park and to get in and out.
We look forward to returning one day soon, and thinking about renting the main house next time, for longer!
The casita was wonderful and the view AMAZING!
We had a great time, close to everything...we will be back!!
Nice little casita a few miles from beach and markets.
We rented this place for more than a week . It is quite secluded but safe as it is in a gated community. It is pretty minimal in what it provides. No pool nor ac. Has fans! It’s a drive out to main road and about 10 minutes to main supermarket. Drive from main road to casita isn’t paved with a few neighbors. We had a challenge with a few things however the place was comfortable if you’re looking for solitary. Lots of cute birds and monkeys frequently make appearance. 7:30am-7:30 pm the bugs make loud buzzing but after a few days we tend to tune it out. It was part of the ballena beach club that allowed us to drive there to use pool and beach. We didn’t use the pool though. Maybe sharper knives in the kitchen will help. We did experience a day of power outage lasting more than 5 hours. Inconvenience since it’s a drive out to get to restaurants . Driveway very steep and it’s not for the elderly or disabilities. Especially if you are carrying bags ! The view of the ocean was constant and was the highlight of our stay daily with the toucans !
Cute little place, great view and sweet people
We had a nice stay at this casita. It is a cute and simple little place. The view was spectacular, and it was nice being so close to Uvita we enjoyed using the beach club membership to walk on the beach for free and enjoyed the food there as well. Bud and Clara are very sweet and easy to deal with. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars, is this casita does not have air conditioning, and it got a little hot for us northerners. Other than that, it’s a great little place!
Our escape to a slice of paradise
What an amazing place in the jungle of Uvita Costa Rica. Every moment held a new creature to behold, sounds, delightful warm, friendly, helpful people, amazing food, and ocean and beaches that take your breath away. A charming place for two, easy to live in with everything we needed. And, invaluable resources information and ideas from the owners. A 4 wheel drive a MUST for exploring! Our first but not our last visit!
