Our 1/2 acre + Private, Gated, Garden Property is BEACHSIDE, merely 200 meters away from Playa Punta Uva, (our beach) which was rated as one of the TOP TEN Natural Beaches in the World by Outsider Magazine and American .Expresses TRAVEL AND LEISURE Magazine. !ur Gated, Garden Property of the Toucan Stay Inn (but 3 can't)...just 200 meters from Playa Punta Uva which was rated on of the TOP 10 Natural Beaches of the World by Outsider Magazine and Leisure Mag.

However, quite often our guests (couples) meet each other...and "click"...plan to "hang out" together or share meals "on or off property". Our Canadian Manager, Mike, is there to assist all of our guests with suggestions for places to tour, adventures, a different beach to check out, a restaurant, a local taco place, or a bar to sit and watch the sunset. The NeighborhoodBesides lounging around on hammocks on our property and doing the beach...there are many things to do. Punt Uva which means "Grape Point". You can actually hike out to the "point" and stand on its ledge with the Ocean surrounding you. It's quite a site. Grape Point has 2 sides...and therefore 2 beaches. Each one beautiful...yet different. Our side has a Beachfront Bar/Restaurant, a Dive Shop and a Convenience Store (all within meters of our door). The other side is also gorgeous...and has a Beachfront Bar/Restaurant. Within a mile or two in either direction we have more than a half dozen or more very good restaurants. Many owned by foreigners from the US, Argentina, Israel, Italy, Poland and (URL HIDDEN) mention a few. Getting AroundWell, if we don't have some working bikes for you...they are available to rent nearby (approx. $5 per day). The Bus Stop is within a few yards of our front door. Taxis are about $10 (US or 5,000 Colones) to get into Puerto Viejo (our hub...with shops, kiosks, clubs and more restaurants) Rental Cars, Scooters and Quads are also rentable in Puerto Viejo. . Other Things to Note1) (URL HIDDEN) is important for guests to realize that they are in a 3rd World Country. Be Safe...and don't attract attention to yourselves by wearing expensive jewelry, showing wads of money or carrying expensive possessions. It is a very casual and "layback" atmosphere 2) English is spoken quite prevalently in the area. The Caribbean was mostly developed by the Caribbean Islanders who came here to work for the United Fruit Company over 100 years ago. They were British Islands...thus English speaking.

We have refurbished 2 units, complete with local art and reclaimed woods. We have a 3 night minimum stay. Our guests will have access to snorkel gear, a kayak and bicycles. We also have a dog and cat, and with the iron work in the windows, you may experience our cat. If you have allergies, accept our apologies in advance, there is no way to contain them in the open living spaces. We also have a community kitchen guests can use in addition to the kitchenette if more interaction is desired, and a media library is in the works. We live in a quiet neighborhood, with folks that have lived here in Costa Rica their whole lives. There is a wealth of history here! About 1/4 mile down the road is the bus stop, or take the bikes for a spin into town, which is about 5 miles of flat ride. There are also taxi's which can come pick you up! We have a 3 night minimum stay. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use the community kitchen and wander the yard or garden to see the various plants and animals. Interaction with GuestsWe live onsite also, so if you have any questions or need suggestions, we can certainly help you out! The NeighborhoodWe live in a quiet neighborhood, along the beach. Most of our neighbors are Costa Rican and have lived here forever, very kind and full of history!

Villa Toucan is located within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge in Punta Uva on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. The house is 1 km from the turquoise colored waters of the Caribbean Sea where you can enjoy beautiful virgin beaches, snorkeling over the coral reefs, kayaking, wildlife hikes, horseback riding and just plainly relaxing. Guests at Villa Toucan are assured to see dozens of toucans everyday in addition to several kinds of monkeys, sloths, colorful frogs, morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, countless varieties of birds and exotic insects. Designed as a vacation house for families and honeymooners, the villa comes fully equipped and can comfortably sleep up to 4 people. There are 2 private bedrooms, each with its own private balcony, outdoor bathroom and private garden, a full kitchen, dining area, a wildlife terrace and our new Hammock hut.

Each bedroom has its own private balcony overlooking the rainforest and large exterior outdoor bathrooms. The floors and cathedral ceilings are made of beautiful local hardwoods.

Though we are a 10 minute walking distance to the beach down our gravel road, we highly recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get to the property and around town.

Guests at Villa Toucan are assured to see dozens of toucans everyday in addition to several kinds of monkeys, sloths, colorful frogs, morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, countless varieties of birds and exotic insects. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property, approximately 100 yards from Villa Toucan, leaving you your full privacy, yet we are always available to entertain or ask any questions, or offer local recommendations. The NeighborhoodWe have no neighbors! That's probably the biggest plus of staying at Villa Toucan. Privacy and tranquility and safety. Getting AroundWe highly recommend a 4x4 or raised vehicle to get around. Some guests have gotten by happily with bicycles, but most are relieved to have a car ;) The house is up 2 steep hills, you should be in shape if you choose to hike back and forth, but it has been done and it is doable ;) Other Things to NoteWe are located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica at the very end of the road near the Panamanian border. It is a 4-4.5 hour drive from San Jose, the capital, where the main airport is. It's a bit of a drive, but certainly worth it! We will be happy to recommend various transportation options including car rental, shuttles, or even white water rafting on the way down or back up!

      We have two charming 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchenettes just 75 steps from the waters edge in Punta Uva, Costa Rica. We have spent the last 3 months renovating, so everything is shiny and new!! We are on the edge of a lush tropical rainforest, where it meets the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean. We have bicycles, fishing gear and snorkel gear that come with the rental of our apartment, along with the hammock and wifi. We are about an hour south of Limon, and about 7 kilometers beyond Puerto Viejo. There are many things to do and see in the area. The beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. Manzanillo just down the road has some spectacular white sand beaches. There is the Jaguar Rescue Center nearby that is well worth the 15.00 to get in and learn a little about the local animals, and spend some time holding a howler monkey. There are many "sodas" or mom and pop restaurants between here and Puerto Viejo where you will find tons of local street sales, shops, and night life. Take a waterfall tour, go see how chocolate is made, take a horseback ride thru the jungle or on the beach, go for a dolphin watching or fishing trip, or just hang out in the hammock and wait for "Sammie" our resident sloth to meander down the tree. We see iguana, toucans, sloths, and monkeys regularly along with a host of spectacular fish while snorkeling. The plant life is phenomenal too, fresh pineapple, coconut, pipa, bananas, and many I hadn't heard of until I came here like mangosteen & biriba. The smells of the flowers are amazing, the Ylang Ylang drifts on the sea breeze along with the white ginger... Any way you look at it, here in paradise, life is sweet. We are located just 75 meters from the spectacular Punta Uva beach in a quiet neighborhood. Just down the road is Arrefice Restaurant/Bar, and a few kilometers down the main road is Manzanillo, with some of the most beautiful beaches around, and Cool n Calm Restaurant. They have wonderful caribbean chicken and Andy, the owner and chef is wonderful. Back towards Puerto Viejo is the Punta Uva Dive Center and Lounge, and there are several small restaurants and bars, a few coffee shops, horseback riding, Caribeans Chocolate (yummy) complete with chocolate tasting lounge, surfing and spas.
