Gerard, tks for your kind words about the River House -
Vaste propriété avec agréable piscine privée dans une luxuriante végétation. Propriétaire vivant en Autriche mais contacts très satisfaisant par mail. Accueillis chaleureusement sur place par Guemer le gardien Costa Ricain. Petit probleme de wifi résolu très rapidement et efficacement par Simone , Massi et Gumer. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine. Et encore Merci à Guemer pour ses services et sa sympathie. 2 couples de retraités Français.
some words from our guests at the river house -
“Hi Simone We enjoyed our stay at your wonderfull place and the caretaker was very nice with us. Hope to be able to go back again . Thank you Marc Lise and Carole”
In a survey carried out by InterNations, a network for expats with local communities worldwide, Costa Rica holds the second position in the world in the ranking of most welcoming countries.
How easy is it to settle in the destination country? How easy is it to make friends? These type of questions were included in the survey that InterNations used to create the ranking.
Cultural aspects, the ability and disposition of the locals to communicate and understand foreigners and to teach them about the area, were also aspects taken into consideration. More on.....
tks Swin for your words about the river house - www.theriverhouseblog.com“Nous avons adoré notre séjour à The river house, la maison est agréable, la petite cabine aussi, l espace piscine avec son rancho est magnifique et tellement plaisant. Le tout est sur un terrain vraiment spacieux, idéal pour une famille. Uvita est tout près avec toutes les commodités d un petit village. Nous gardons précieusement cette adresse et espérons pouvoir y revenir, vivant nous-mêmes au Costa Rica.”
Tks Mike for your sweet message about your recent stay at the River House - www.theriverhouseblog.com - Hi Simone,
We really enjoyed our stay at your property. The house was awesome, the guest house was cool and the pool area was fantastic! Your caretaker was also very pleasant and approachable. Thanks for a great experience!
Found this old google map aerial of the River House under construction in 2005. No offense but I kind of liked no neighbors, no other houses :-)
Thanks Roni who stayed with us this Feb 2017 for your review of The River House :-) “Had a great stay at the River House! The grounds are beautiful and pool and pool area great to relax at. The caretaker, Gumercindo,was great! He was very helpful and we managed to communicate well despite my limited Spanish. He was always available if needed but never intrusive. Very quiet and relaxing location, although the wildlife does get you up early. The main house is big and roomy with a well stocked kitchen and there is a charcoal BBQ in the pool area. We enjoyed the bunky which is air conditioned and has a full bathroom. Simone was very accommodating and allowed an early check in which was very helpful for us. The road into the property definitely required a 4 wheel drive, but easy to find. The only draw back was having to drive into town,nothing is within walking distance.”
I am so glad to announce that only last Saturday we brought my white horse, Gavilan back to the property in Uvita. He has been helping the worker in San Vito with transporting coffee from the fields to the house. He is now already well over 25 years and shall live the last few years of his life here in Uvita. Costa Rican horses love bananas, so if you bring him some, I am sure he will be happy :-)
We still have some properties for sale in Costa Rica - escape the winter/or just your neighbor :-) Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org)) for a variety here. We are also working on a new jungle property development, which will feature smaller lots starting at $35K. Reserve the right one now :-)

I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
