Your home in paradise, Casa Koora in Costa Rica
The sounds of the jungle can tickle your eardrums with delight, but it’s the otherworldly colors that will really blow you away.
Welcome to Casa Koora, where an azul ocean and turquoise furnishings mix seamlessly with pumpkin-orange sunsets and a forest-green mountainside backdrop. It’s like staying in a real-life version of Van Gogh’s “Fishing Boats on the Beach” paintings, except with modern amenities and wireless internet.
With 3 bedrooms all featuring en-suite bathrooms and outstanding ocean views, Casa Koora is a choice vacation villa for medium-sized groups of friends and family members. The rooms are all very private, with air-conditioning units and king beds. No one has to be stuck in a room that isn’t on par with the others in the villa.
The house is located less than 10 minutes from the southern Pacific Costa Rican town of Uvita. There are a number of excellent restaurants, beaches and tour activities all within a 20-minute drive of the front door. And the area has everything — sport fishing, surfing, kayaking, river rafting, horseback riding, waterfall hiking and ATV riding being among the most popular activities for our guests to partake in.
Casa Koora was completed in April 2019 and is absolutely immaculate.
A 4×4-only road leads you to a gated entrance, and the house is just another minute up the pathway. When you park, you’ll immediately notice a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and jungle canopy to the northeast. At any moment a white-face monkey or a toucan can go whizzing by — it’s just that type of place.
The ocean-facing side of the villa has a nice swimming pool measuring approximately 35 feet by 15 feet. There is a shallow end for kids and water-tanners. The rest of the outdoor space is super inviting, with rocking chairs, tables and loungers. This is the place to be when you’re not busy catching 18-foot marlin or swimming with sea turtles.
Meandering through the villa, there’s a large flat-screen television in the living room and a dining table with seating for eight between there and the kitchen.
And would your mother be proud of this kitchen.
Spotless is the word, really, with brand-new appliances and everything you’d need to prep a perfect tropical dish. The island in the center, featuring a four-burner stove, center grill and bar stools, is where the serious conversations start between coffee, smoothies and wine bottles.
Casa Koora is also equipped with high-speed internet, filtered and drinkable water, a washer and dryer unit, dishwasher and an extra half bathroom, for a total of 3 ½ bathrooms in the house. The villa is overseen by YouGetHere Property Management, whose staff will be available to assist with checking in and out of the villa, scheduling tours, in-home chef and massage recommendations, and car rental and shuttle contacts.
When you’re ready to see the world as you’ve never seen it, come to Casa Koora in Costa Rica for the vacation of a lifetime.

YouGetHere is 100% tops. From the emails prior to arriving to the check-in/out process- everything is extremely organized and easy. Just an overall great experience. They offer many services to connect you with your needs- from transportation to excursions. House: the house was exactly as described. We loved the pool and patio area and the views were just, well, impressive. Watch toucans fly by while enjoying the massive outdoor living area. Bedrooms were spacious and clean and the aircon was nice and chilly after hot days spent exploring. We had everything we needed to cook/grill and it really felt like home for a week. The property is very private and the only sounds you hear come from nature. We came during the rainy season but I'd feel safe saying that you need a 4x4 vehicle to make it up "the hill" any time.

We helped a couple with a small 2wd crossover get unstuck in one of the lower sections. Don't let this scare you. Just have a 4x4 🙂 Driving: we knew we would be coming into SJO late so we arranged private transportation to Jaco where we stayed overnight. There, the next morning, we rented a car to begin our week at Casa Koora. Outside of SJO, the driving is familiar and easy. Outside of the small towns, speed limited are essentially ignored - you'll pass and get passed but it is not aggressive in any way. There is a flow that becomes familiar after a day. We drove all up and down the coast and ventured as much as we could. Get a car. Go explore. 🙂 Costa Rica made a huge impression on us. I hope you'll love it as much as we did. Casa Koora was absolutely a part of an incredible experience. Absolutely perfect. Ismael was awesome. We really appreciate the organization and processes employed by YouGetHere. We will be staying with you again. 100% tops.Read LessYouGetHere is 100% topsJune 13, 2021
Perfect in every respect. Listen to them when they say get a 4x4. The trip up and down eventually became part of the fun. The views are probably better than the online pics. We saw toucans, spider monkeys, and some other wildlife right from the porch. And right out the entry windows. The place is exactly as advertised.Perfect in every respect.!June 1, 2021
This is a great house tucked away in the jungle, you need to know that this place is more secluded and requires a 4x4 car to access. This is part of the charm of this property, you feel like you have the best of both worlds staying in a luxury property but tucked away in the jungle at the same time with great views of the jungle and ocean. Also one needs to realize that they are staying in a jungle, therefore, seeing some insects here and there around the property is a part of the experience. We would most definitely consider coming back and renting this house again.Luxury property tucked away in the jungleMarch 11, 2020
One word: breathtaking. The pictures don't do this place justice. The house is perfect the location is good if you don't mind a dirt road up a steep mountain. The views were beyond our expectations and extremely private and quiet. The house was extremely clean. It was sad to leave. We did see a sloth and a monkey from the deck so that was the icing on the cakeBreathtakingDecember 5, 2019
