About us


30 years ago, Dave and Jean started traveling through the Caribbean looking for the perfect place. The Eureka moment happened when they came across this magical garden of Eden. It became their home and their business. In 2019 we took over the stewardship of their dream and our vision is to maintain the authenticity of CASA VIVA by combining simplicity with elegant sophistication. We want you to feel part of the wild nature of the jungle and the relaxing atmosphere of our beachfront.

Nestled in Punta Uva bay, sheltered from the sounds of civilization, you can immerse yourself in the luscious gardens which are home to howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, hummingbirds, agoutis and more. Enjoy the relaxing, continuous crashing of waves a few feet from where you sprawl.
