Quick Find


My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Toucan Alley this past January for ten wonderful days; from the minute we arrived on a late Wednesday night Neil made us feel welcome and went out of his way to get us settled in after a long day of traveling from the cold Northeast. We were immediately captivated by the beautiful accommodations. The home is decorated and designed to put you immediately at ease….but the best was yet to come. We awoke the next morning to the sound of Howler monkeys and the jungle coming to life around us within our own private 16 acres! As we took our first glance out from our master bedroom suite, words cannot describe the surrounding beauty and the awe inspiring blue Pacific, from our 180 degree panoramic view. My wife and I have had the privilege of traveling to many beautiful places but truly cannot think of a place that had more to offer in sheer beauty and diversity of things to do. We are typically very active people and love to explore the different places that we visit….but for the first time we really never felt the need to leave our accommodations at Toucan Alley, as it had everything we could ask for in its relaxing awe inspiring location. We did take an excursion on horseback up to Nauyaca Falls which was amazing and visited two of the many national parks and beaches…but were most happy just to stay in our wonderful Villa looking out over our jungle paradise and relaxing in the infinite pool. Thanks again Neil for always being available when called upon but also respecting our privacy which is what we truly desired most. Costa Rica is a magical place which we look forward to returning to many times in the future.

The Jade House.
The name itself carries a certain mystique on Costa Rica's southern Pacific coastline.
Ask a local and they can recall tall tales of a breathtaking property located high in the tree forest, complete with multiple swimming pools, an outdoor billiards table and swim-up bar, and a crazy kids' room that's only accessible through a super-secret entrance in the wall.
All of these stories are true, by the way.
The Jade House isn't just a luxury vacation villa that provides ideal -- and well-earned -- tanning opportunities under clear-blue skylines. The Jade House is a full on life experience. It's the kind of place you visit with friends and family, and 10 years later you're still laughing about the trip. The memories, the photos, the good times -- it never really leaves you.
So let's paint the picture:
This stunning villa is located in the hillside community of Escaleras, between the coastal towns of Dominical and Uvita. The home is ideal for groups of 4-10 adults. There is also capacity for as many as six children, for a maximum of 16 guests (10 adults max). With tremendous joy each year, we welcome highly anticipated friends and family reunions from visitors across the globe.
As far as layout, there are five bedrooms for adults, four of which have on-suite bathrooms and king-size beds. The fifth bedroom has a queen bed with a bathroom down the hall. Each bedroom comes with air-conditioning. There is also a kids' room downstairs with three bunk beds, a restroom, AC and plenty of space to play. Because of its unique design features, the kids' room is a huge hit for children in the 3-10 range. There are also a pair of air mattresses available if teenagers need to use the room but are too big for the bunk beds.
Three of the five adult bedrooms are located on the upstairs floor, and each of those rooms features sweeping views of the nearby Pacific Ocean as well as easy access to a large wrap-around balcony. Each room features a king bed, on-suite bathroom with double shower heads and AC. When the ocean tide is low, this upstairs area is the best spot in town for viewing the world-famous Whale's Tail reef toward the south.
The living area, kitchen, master bedroom and fifth bedroom are all located on the main floor. This is also where the swimming pools and outdoor living and cooking space are found. 
While the temperature is pretty much always perfect, there is a warm Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom that's great for winding down after a long day of river rafting, or surfing, or sport fishing -- or maybe your eyes are just tired from reading too much at the pool. Swing open the master bedroom's large glass doors and feel the cool ocean breeze whip through the night as you enjoy the bubbling tub and the unique sounds of the surrounding jungle.
Prepping meals in the kitchen is a cinch, too, with a spacious countertop for food prep and a jumbo, double-door fridge for storing plenty of items. In addition, the dining room table seats 10 comfortably. In the living room, you'll find soft sofas and a flat-screen television that comes equipped with a Netflix movie account. There is also wireless internet and high-quality speaker surround sound throughout the property, both indoors and outdoors.
Now we've devoted quite a bit of time to the villa's interior, but the truth is most of your non-sleeping time will be spent outdoors enjoying Costa Rica's amazing climate and geography. Simply put, the Jade House has the best outdoor living space in the region.
There are three -- three! -- swimming pools. So the kids can be in one pool making stadium-level noise while splashing water at the toucans, and Uncle Joe with the bad jokes can be pouring drinks at the swim-up bar, and that gives you a third option to get away from it all and relax at your very own pool, maybe even do a few laps for exercise. It's a perfect setup!
When you're not in the pool, you can play a game of billiards or kick back on one of the many poolside lounge chairs. While this is going on, someone else can fire up the gas grill and Spanish frying pan and start cooking fresh fish, local veggies and gallo pinto for dinner. For the best part, you can repeat this routine day after day at your leisure. In fact, you don't even need to go inside to eat because the outdoor dining table fits 10 as well.
All the type of things that make a vacation go smoother -- privacy, convenience, live-on caretakers, a washer and dryer, an ice machine, tour and transportation reservation services, in-home massage and chef scheduling -- are included at the Jade House. 
If you're looking to combine all the comforts of modern, upscale living with the creativity of jungle-influenced design for your next vacation, a stay at the Jade House is exactly what the doctor ordered. It is a magical, mystical place, and the legend only continues to grow.


Dream Home 
This house is absolutely amazing. It's more than spacious, has updated decor, and plenty of entertainment with the multiple swimming pools, billiards, and hundreds of movies. The view is breathtaking.

Luxury in the Rainforest 
Imagine being lulled to sleep by the hum of the Rainforest, and waking to the sound of monkeys, then enjoying a different show of wildlife every day as you laze around one of the three swimming pools. The Jade House provided us with ultimate luxury, nestled inside the most beautiful, untouched Costa Rican Rainforest. Our party of 13 consisted of children aged 8-16, and adults 21-50. The property provided plentiful space and the layout means that there's a large central family area but also lots of private areas where the younger adults and teenagers could escape to. We wanted a holiday which would combine relaxation with action and that is exactly what we got. We spent half of our week-long stay relaxing in the spectacular property, enjoying the breathtaking Ocean views from the pool or one of the terraces, cooking on the large outdoor gas BBQ or Paella stove, drinking cocktails from the swim-up bar, saying 'Hi' to the visiting Sloths and Toucans......basically enjoying Paradise. Then we made the most of the excursions organised very efficiently by You Get There. Some great family memories were made on the Savagre River Rafting Tour, and the AVT jungle experience which included swimming under a natural waterfall. On another day, the men all headed off for a day fishing at sea (catching a Sail Fish and a 40lb Dorado) while the girls visited nearby Domical to enjoy watching the surfers and browsing the varied shops in this little seaside town. We finished off our stay with amazing poolside massages, again organised by our hosting You Get There. We loved the Costa Rican people, who welcomed us everywhere we went, and we enjoyed the fact that this was in many way a no frills holiday, yet with the most beautiful, luxurious, peaceful, functional home to return to after every trip out. The property's caretaker and housekeeper live in a neighbouring house within the grounds and provide a great service without interfering with your break. I would highly recommend this holiday and this property. Make sure you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, and make sure you book some excursions to make the most of the area around you. Also, head to the Jolly Roger (About 300 meters away from the property) for the best Chicken Wings and beer in Costa Rica.

Beautiful Home! 
AMAZING HOME, right when you walk through the doors it takes your breath away. It has a very open and modern feel to it, the infinity pool is awesome! it has a stunning view of the coast and you can hear and see monkeys, sloths, and toucans in the trees from the outside deck. The house also comes equipped with a stereo system so you can listen to your favorite music while relaxing in the pool. Beautiful decor, the beds were comfy, there is even a 'secret' room behind the bookshelf. The whole trip was like a dream! Cannot wait to come back!

Jade House is AMAZING! 
We rented the Jade House for our family vacation (7 adults/5 children) and it was a spectacular time together with family. The children's room (accessed by a hidden entry behind a bookcase in the main hallway) was a big hit with the kids, and also provided a great play room for them which allowed the adults time on the main floor... The three sets of bunkbeds made for a great slumber party for the cousins, and the pools/wet bar at sunset were a big hit with the adults! Would definitely recommend this for folks looking to experience an amazingly luxurious tropical escape!

Beyond Amazing Home with all the Amenities for the Perfect Vacation
My extended family and I were so excited when we booked this house and it was beyond our expectations. The home sits high enough up the mountain that on a clear day you can see forever and it gives you unmatched privacy. Get ready to see the jungle life up close and personal - we saw sloths, toucans, howler monkeys and many other beautiful birds. The home has a perfect layout offering a very large common area (kitchen/dining room/living room) that gets even larger when you open the floor to ceiling folding glass doors. Now the whole outside becomes part of your living room! The 3 pools made it perfect for the adults to have some space from the kids. My personal favorite part of the day was when we came together at the end of the day to enjoy cocktails at the bar area while hanging in the pool. This truly was heaven on earth for our whole group. The kitchen was very well equipped even though we went pretty simple on the cooking. Everyone said their beds were extremely comfortable with very nice linens. The other thing we really appreciated about the layout of the house is that most of the bedrooms have their own deck so by then end of the week when we were ready to have some alone time, it was easy to escape to each person's private area. We all were just so impressed with all the thought that went in to designing this home. The caretakers were so nice to work with but totally stayed out of your space and made you feel very comfortable. This part of the CR coast is very laid back and the towns nearby are pretty small but actually offer some good restaurants and food markets. There is a farmer's market nearby that offered a good selection of the local produce. But the hardest thing about sightseeing in this area is that it means you have to leave this beautiful, comfortable property so we just didn't do it that much! Of course we all hope to repeat this trip to this same house sometime in our future!

Second visit better than the first 
We had stayed in this house almost 2 years prior. The owners had done some wonderful improvements to the decor bringing it to the level of spectacular vs the previous "great". The layout of the house is perfect for a few couples, or 2 families. The 3 pools right off the main living area mean there's lots of space for everyone to get together, but large enough for everyone to have space if needed. The house is nestled into the jungle so you feel a part of nature, and have great privacy. Proximity to the beach, grocery stores and tourist attractions make it a perfect get away location. I never go to a location a second time. This is a wonderful high quality home.

The perfect luxury surf/jungle retreat
Jade House was the centre piece of one the best holidays our family has experienced. This is unequivocally a luxury villa where no expense has been spared and great care has been taken to ensure that the buildings and garden blend with the surrounding environment including the jungle and wildlife. The large open plan living area provides room for everyone while still keeping the group together. The in-pool/pool side bar is a great gathering point and the outdoor kitchen/BBQ area was kitted out to satisfy a BBQ aficionado. Each bedroom also has ample space and private outdoor areas for when one wants to escape. From moving between the swimming pools, playing billiards, observing the local wildlife or appreciating the view (checking the surf) one could easily spend a week experiencing Costa Rica almost without leaving home. That said, we were directed to some great local restaurants, it is a short walk down the hill to the local bar and there are multiple potential day trips... and great local surf. I found great lefts and rights at the local breaks and we were introduced to a wonderful local surf instructor (Jeanine of Dominical WaveRiders) who gave daily lessons to our children (10 and 12 yrs old) on a forgiving nearby beginners break. You should rent a 4wd to access more secluded areas nearby the house where there are some spectacular walks - on a wet day it also felt safer to be in a 4wd while climbing the steep ascent to the house. We can highly recommend Jade House and will be returning with our family.

One of the best uncommercialised places in the world.
We had a family holiday ( 7 adults and 3 children under 10) to Costa Rica and stayed at the Jade house. I would highly recommend the 5+ star house that comes with pretty much everything you would expect. We loved being only 5 minutes from some of Costa Rica's best uncrowded surf breaks, actually in the 10 days we surfed twice a day every day and only had to share the waves twice with a couple of locals. We finished off each session with fresh cocoanut juice sold on the beach by locals at 50 cents each. I would make sure you hang out at the local bars, take a guided quad bike tour to some of the best lookouts, swimming holes and waterfalls plus book yourself some time for the local massages and yoga on the beach as they were amazing. Don't leave your valuables on the beach while you surf as some locals think it's there birth right to steal from gringos. Other than that the Jade House and location is situated in some of the best uncommercialised places in the world. Happy holidays and enjoy making memories in luxuary at the Jade House that you will never forget.

The reality is even better than the photos!
I had seen Jade house a few times online before I visited and found myself wondering if it really could be as good as the photos look. Well I was overjoyed to find that the house is even more impressive and luxurious in reality! Where do I start?...well first the house is amazing and I love the way you walk through the front door as your first enter and see straight out through the open lounge past the 3 pools and the surrounding 'jungle' there you can see the sea with tree lined shore! is postcard picture perfect! All the bedrooms are unique and lead out to expansive balconies with the same stunning view so getting out of bed each morning and walking out on the balcony was a highlight of my holiday and made the start of every day just so amazing. Most of the time we ate at the house and I absolutely loved the early evenings when (freshly showered) we would make margaritas in the pool bar and lounge outside watching the sun set whilst we had different meat and fish cooking on the barbecue. We never used the inside table as I love the alfresco dining table next to one of the pools. We did venture out 1 night to the local 'Pub' called the Jolly Roger which was awesome as it had live music, great cocktails and HUGE beef burgers which I have never seen the likes of before...not to mention hot wings in different degrees of go carefull here as some are HOT!!! As for what to do...I love fishing so definitely recommend taking a trip as there is a lot of different fish to catch and we had a great day. I also tried my hand at surfing for the first time in very gentle waves and in crystal clear water the temperature of a lukewarm bath so was a great way to learn. The other thing I highly recommend is doing the quad biking into the hills which is about 4 hours and not for the faint hearted as you go through some pretty rough terrain at times...but so much fun finishing with a swim in a waterfall! The managers also live very close buy and are always around to help when ever you need them so whilst you felt completely on your own in the house, it was great knowing we had local help when we needed it! Back in the real world I often find myself thinking about the great holiday I had there and just hope we organize another trip back there soon. I can'r recommend this palace and location in Costa Rica will love it and have a very relaxing holiday!

Vacation at The Jade House 
Absolutely fabulous vacation for a couple or family. Paradise found. Something for everyone - beautiful infinity pools for total relaxation with breathtaking views of the ocean; horseriding along the beach for the equestrian in you; ATV adventures through the rain forest for the not so faint hearted and swimming under waterfalls for the romantic within. The home is equipped with everything you could ever need and more. Luxurious suites with extremely comfortable beds, spa-like bathrooms and balconies with panoramic view. Many local restaurants with delicious cuisine to suit all tastes and wallets.

Magical Stay!
The home was exactly as described. Seven of us made the trip to the Jade House and not one of us was disappointed. The area the house is located in is beyond magnificent. We liked the area so much that we started looking into buying property. Our stay was made even more enjoyable with the cooking of the maids and Chef Vanessa! We would live to stay here again if the property became available again or at any of Heathers future projects!

A True Retreat!!!
So glad we finally made it to Costa Rica after trying for 3 years! It was worth the wait. Our group of 11 stayed in the Jade House and it was amazing! The house is perfectly placed in the jungle.With an ocean view over the tree tops. Howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, a sloth and toucans visted the house daily. We travel alot and seen many tropical places. We wanted something different this time. We are so glad we chose the Rain Forrest this time!!! If we do ever return to Costa Rica, it WILL definally be back to this area. Heather and Derrick were so helpful with booking our deep sea fishing, white water raft, atv, and canyoning. Even pointing out places to eat. The pizza place is SPECTACULAR! I almost backed out of the rafting cause of the fear of crocodiles. I'm so very glad I didn't. We never seen ANY in the river we went to. Heather helped get us a shuttle to and from the airport. Then we rented both of her vehicles which made it so convenient with no rental returns. You diffentaly need 4x4's to get up the hill to the house. Usually we are tired and ready to get back home but this was one vacation we wished we could stay longer!! Hopefully we get to return soon.

Most Relaxing and Beautiful Vacation Spot Ever!
Where do I start? From the moment my family and I arrived, we were overwhelmed by the house. The furnishings and architecture are fantastic and the views are breathtaking. The pools are the perfect temperature and were so relaxing - we probably spent the most time enjoying the view in the center pool. (Yes - center. There are 3!) All of the bedrooms are equally comfortable and spacious - it was nice to not have to fight over the best room! I also thoroughly enjoyed all of the exotic flowers and creatures. It truly made us feel like we were in the middle of the jungle. Once we had finally accepted that this was actually our home for a week, we were eager to check out what Costa Rica had to offer. Heather and Derek were so incredibly helpful. We told them what we were hoping to do and they made it happen. Throughout the week, Heather and Derek arranged for surf lessons, deep-sea fishing, a zipline tour, massages, pedicures, and in-house cooking. If you're at all interested in fishing or just taking in the views of the Pacific, I highly recommend the deep-sea fishing with Mario. Just bring plenty of water and sunscreen! On top of catching nearly a dozen huge fish, we saw monkeys, dolphins, sea turtles, humpback whales, and more. It was an amazing experience, plus the fish that we caught was the best fish I've ever tasted. Speaking of food, Heather and Derek arranged for the housekeepers to cook us an authentic Costa Rican meal that was spectacular. They made fried plantains, arroz con pollo, guacamole, pico de gallo, and black bean dip. They made way too much too, so we had plenty of delicious leftovers for the rest of the week. One thing that did take some getting used to was going up and down the hill to the house. However, the views at the top of the hill make it all worth it! Heather and Derek have a car available to rent that made our trips much easier. Also, there is a good, casual restaurant a bit down the hill - we drove to it but it is certainly walkable. My sisters and I did an excessive amount of research in order to find a great place to stay in Costa Rica, and we all agreed at the end of the trip that we had found the perfect house. What an amazing vacation!

The Jade House
Heather and her crew were amazingly helpful! The Jade House was nothing short of extraordinary and our hostess ranked 6 STARS for her excellent service! That goes for her husband Derick too! They helped with surfing lessons for my son and his friends, arranged for a Zip-lining trip which thrilled my husband Mike, set-up a fishing charter and even arranged for some wild brush clearing on our lot in Uvita. That kind of service is rare and speaks to the heart of this family. In terms of the house, the pictures speak for themselves but don't forget the state-of-the-art outdoor stereo system and ambient lighting. It's pretty cool swimming to Van Morrison at moonlight. Joyful memories for a lifetime!

Wonderful stay in a wonderful home
Our stay in the Jade house was amazing. The house is even better than the pictures show, with an incredible amount of space, wonderful kitchen and bathroom amenities, and a very peaceful setting. The house is cleaned every other day, so even with a large group it always felt well maintained. We spent most of our time in the house, because it was too beautiful to leave, but when we did venture out, we found a great zip line operator, recommended by Heather the house manager, and had a wonderful time soaring through the trees. Heather was a great resource, and lives right next door, so is easily accessible for anything you might need. All in all, very highly recommended!

Best Vacation Spot Ever!
I went down to the Jade House with a group of 11 people back in June. This place is amazing! The owners thought of everything when they built this house! The pictures don't even do the house justice - it is truly a beautiful place. We spent almost all of our time on the enormous covered outdoor patio - it was so relaxing and fun, and the views are absolutely breathtaking. We had the chef come to the house a couple nights, and her food was delicious. We would have had her come every night if she had only been available! Heather and Derrick were so friendly and helpful - they really made our stay an amazing experience and helped us plan all of our activities. I don't think anyone could walk away from a week at this house and be disappointed - I'm already looking forward to planning my next vacation here!

Our trip to Costa Rica was fabulous and the Jade House was just icing on the cake. The views from the porch were breathtaking. We were welcomed by a clear night and millions of stars twinkled and you actually feel like you can reach out and touch the stars. Heather told us that it is not common to have such a clear night and told us that you can see the Southern Cross and we found it. It is true what the song says, "when you see the Southern Cross for the first time you understand why you came this way”.
The home was beautiful and very comfortable. Our family of 10 had plenty of space to have your own quiet areas and even to spread out around the pool. The three pools and the area around them allowed the teens to sunbathe and the adults were able to relax under the porch and ceiling fans. All of the bedrooms were furnished with soft and comfy beds with linens. The bathrooms were designed magnificently and you felt that you were staying in a first class resort. The cleaning staff came in while we were out of the house, but we were there, they were very efficient and took pains to not disturb us.
We were fortunate to have taken advantage of the services of a private chef who prepared dinner for us the first night of our arrival. We highly recommend their services also. The food was fresh and well prepared. We were treated to a variety of side items with fish and chicken along with local desserts. The location of the house was adjacent to a supermarket that was only 15 minutes from the house and offered meats, and staple goods. The fish market was a little less desirable to the eye, but the quality off the fish was top notch. Our family grilled food many nights in the comfort of the home since we were all exhausted from making the most of our trip. We also took advantage of all the street vendors who were selling fresh fruits and vegetables. The home was fully stocked with the comforts of your kitchen at home. We were able to take advantage of many excursions including Canyoning, Zip Lining, Mangrove Tours, Deep Sea Fishing and White Water rafting. We used Dominical Adventures for the whitewater rafting and the recommended the Zip Line company, who in turn recommended the Mangrove Tour company. All of the companies were friendly and competent. Since the home is surrounded by tropical foliage and the rainforest. Flowers were abundant and beautiful. We were also lucky to see so many wild animals adjacent to our pool.

Fantastic Home!
I’ve been a fan of rental vacation homes since having kids and I’m generally a pretty picky house guest. Let's just say I've had my share of duds. So I tell you this in my most enthusiastic voice, this home is GORGEOUS! Complete with monkeys and sloths in the “back yard”. We had the opportunity to stay in the Jade house for a vacation with a group of college friends in August 2010. It has taken months to write this review but the memories of the home still linger. It’s perfect for a large group with 4 spacious master bedrooms. The home is extremely clean and I felt as if I were staying in a model home. The drive to the home is thrilling; 4-wheel drive is a must. There are grocery stores and delicious restaurants within 10 minutes of the house. I highly recommend this home for your vacation to Costa Rica.

The beautiful Jade House!
The Jade house is an absolutely beautiful house. The setting is so exotic and the house so functional that our vacation was a dream come true. The availability of Heather and Derek helped us feel that we had immediate, local friends up the way! We would highly recommend the services of the chef Vanessa. The meals she served us were delicious and we were always quite comfortable with her presence in the house. The website mentioned that the house provided 'true indoor-outdoor living.' This was not a feature to which we gave much thought, but it became the most pleasant of our stay. With the walls open, we wandered in and out of the house. The covered paio area was absolutely an extension of the house. There was wonderful rain on several afternoons of our stay and we were still able to be outside- playing pool, enjoying the bar and patio seating and even the swimming pools! When our toddler became ill, Derek gave us the OTC meds we needed out of their own fridge- these are good people and they really cared that we had a great time at the Jade House.

Loved It
The jade house was awesome! We loved it. What a spectacular setting! It was a real relief not to have to cook or clean for 17 people! The house was in imaculate condition. The pool table felt was a little torn and the bumpers a little hard, but that is really a quible and was not a problem at all. Loved the Ipod docking stations, we listened to our music the whole time! I would reccomend you consider getting staff to cook for you, we got some good Costa Rican fare, and the price was reasonable. We did lunch on our own and the pots and pans and kichen utensils were all top notch.

Most Amazing Vacation Home!
This place is spectacular! It is the most perfect vacation home to stay at to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of life. Every morning I'd wake up to the sounds of nature, and make a breakfast in the large kitchen that opened up to the outdoors (pots, pans, plates, utensils, blender...anything you could possibly need for cooking and drinks were there!). We'd sit out on the yoga deck that overlooked the trees around enjoy our meal. The three pools are a major highlight: the lap pool was great for morning workouts, the swim-up bar with in-pool barstools was great for sunset cocktail hour drinks, and the private poor outside of the Master bedroom was perfect for a romantic place to end the night under the moonlight. In addition, there's a pool table, showers for two in main bedrooms, and all of the bedrooms are spaced out throughout the house, for added privacy from every bedroom. Overall, if you are looking to get away and live in paradise while on vacation...this is the place to stay!

Jade House is Spectacular!
A few months ago our small company decided to take our few employees and their family to Costa Rica. We found the Jade House online and quickly moved to reserve a week for the first part of December. We just returned from our fabulous stay that was even beyond our wildest imagination. We took Heather and her friend Kelly up on their offer to stock the house and also hired Vanessa, their in house chef. As we arrived we were taken aback at the detail and beauty of this home. Pictures truly do not do this property justice. It is state of the art. After admiring our accomadations for the week we sat down to a meal that was without a doubt the best meal we had while in Costa Rica. Vanessa was awesome. We turned the tunes on and relaxed the rest of the night by the 3 pools! The morning brought views of the Pacific that were to die for. Whether it was from our bedrooms, the deck, or the pool, the views were just fabulous. It took days to really appreciate the details in this house and quite frankly I am not sure we ever saw all of them. Our week stay was first rate with ATV, Zip line, and Manuel Antonio tours. Then a relaxing evening by the pool just topped each day off. But whether you want to be active or just veg out this home will not disappoint. I have nothing bad to say about this home, the hospitality, or our stay. A plus all around!

The Most Incredible Vacation House Ever
My boyfriend took me to the Jade House for the week of my 30th birthday . It was the most amazing vacation I have ever had in my life. The house and infinity pools are so luxurious and stunning. Nothing in Uvita is as spectacular as staying in this dream vacation home! What makes the Jade House so special are all the details, like the night swimming lights. I woke up to the beautiful sounds of birds and watched parrots and tucans while swimming and looking out at the ocean. It was paradise.
