About our home

Spectacular Jungle Botanical Garden, within five minutes walk to Punta Uva beach. Casa Tres Monos (Three Monkey House) is located within the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge, and is ideal for viewing a vast array of wildlife such as monkeys, toucans, iguanas, turtles, frogs, sloths and giant blue butterflies from the comfort of your porch hammock.

Tres Monos is a simple yet comfortable two story home made almost entirely from beautiful gleaming red Níspero wood. It has two large covered viewing decks with plenty of comfortable chairs, lounges and hammocks to enjoy the brilliant garden and warm tropical air, fragrant with the natural perfume of Ylang Ylang trees and white ginger flowers.

The beds all have Orthopedic mattresses and are dressed in deliciously luxurious bamboo sheets and pillows, surrounded by good quality mosquito netting.

Plenty of plush, Eco-friendly quick dry bath towels, as well as beach towels.

Full kitchen, with refrigerator, four burner gas stove and oven, glassware, dishware, cutlery, utensils, pot, pans etc. Fresh condiments and some pantry items also provided. Drinking water is delivered weekly.

There is a curiously well stocked grocery at the end of our road where you can get most (if not all) of your supplies, including vegies, fruit, fresh fish, organic fresh eggs and chicken, as well as soda, beer, wine or even rum.

We are also close to some truly fantastic restaurants, by any standards.

The property is nestled by 5000 square meter riverfront, and the garden has giant tropical trees (many fruit trees as well) and tons of brightly colored flowers, all lovingly landscaped for a maximum butterfly and bird-watching experience in mind. There is also a freshwater pond that is just jumping with daily frog and turtle activity that can be easily viewed from the deck. 

Over 130 species birds have been counted on property to date; including three species of toucans, several jewel colored hummingbird species, parrots, giant black hawks, and very recently, the green macaw has been successfully reintroduced to the area.

You’ll have a lovely, short 5-8 minute walk or bike ride to one of the most beautiful beaches and pristine live coral reefs in the Caribbean. Perfect for snorkeling, diving, surfing and even horse back riding.

As a guests of Casa Tres Monos, you will find bikes, surfboards, boogie boards and kayaks on site to enjoy. In fact, you can kayak right to Punta Uva beach from the property!

We are close to National Park hiking trails and local guides are easy to book.

Easy to use public transportation is just 200 meters from house.
