“Fantastic Place To Stay”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We had a fantastic three night stay in December. Axel and Karen couldn't have been more helpful and the casita was very well equipped and very comfortable. The location was really tranquil, the river beautiful and well located for exploring the area.

“A little corner of paradise!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Where to start? My wife and I booked this vacation because we wanted to stay somewhere to unwind. Having visited Costa Rica before, we knew a little about the hot tourist spots and what kind of crowds those places attracted. but we wanted rest and relaxation, and Casitas del Rio delivered. A clean cabin, beautiful gardens, sparkling clear river complete with waterfalls and gracious hosts were all a part of the package. I could have spent the entire time just chilling on the porch, but my wife wanted to see the sights of the southern zone, and that's where this place really shines. Everything you could possibly want to see or do is 30 min. Or less away. Great eateries, beautiful beaches, several cascading waterfalls, exotic birds and animals, you name it, it's all very abundant around Uvita.

Axel and Karen went out of there way to make this the best experience possible. He even made us some of his special Juka (sp) the last night we were there. Yum! All I can add at this point is that we are looking forward to our return trip next January. Puranas Vidal!

“Pure Perfection”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

What could we even begin to say about Karen & Axel that would do them, or Casitas del Rio, justice?? The casita was perfect in every possible way. Views from the front porch of the river and incredible scenery, not to mention the sounds of the river, made it the most amazing "tranquilo" get away. Inside we had everything: dishes, utensils, linens, fresh flower arrangements and even a bowl of the freshest fruit and a bottle of wine. They literally thought of EVERYTHING!

Then there's Karen & Axel, two of the most fantastic people to ever grace the Earth. Our stay was originally three days and when we left we agreed they were more like family than those we are biologically linked to. We enjoyed our stay, and Karen and Axel, so much that we changed our plans to come back for one more night. We even debated canceling our trip to Panama to stay with them just a little bit longer. They are welcoming, energetic, fun people that we consider ourselves so lucky to have met.

Casitas del Rio was pure perfection! It was amazing beyond our wildest dreams and we feel so fortunate to have been able to spend our time there.

Karen & Axel, thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

“Fantstic Place!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful 3 night stay there. Karen was more than helpful with any questions we had. The Casitas where very nice, even better than the pictures! Quiet property with the beautiful sound of the river. Toucans, butterflies, very peaceful. Would stay there again. Clean rooms with nice little touches. Close to the beach and Uvita!

“absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 20 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a great 5 nights at Casitas del Rio and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the southern Pacific Coast. The Casitas are perfect and the scenery with the river running right next to the Casitas is picture perfect. Great restaurants, beaches are close by. Would definitely stay there again.
