The Flutterby House attracts guests from all corners of the world who are looking for laid-back lodging with plenty of local activities. Here they mingle with locals who come to enjoy the delicious food and fun-filled nightlife offered at the onsite restaurant and bar.

Located in a one-acre mango plantation right on the doorstep of the gorgeous Marino Ballena National Park, the Flutterby House offers the perfect escape for nature lovers. Howler monkeys, monkeys, and macaws inhabit the jungle around the hotel, and sightings are common in the resort. The beach offers chances to view humpback whales between December and April and turtles laying their eggs between May and November. Snorkeling and surfing a popular in this area for those who like to get up close and personal with the marine life. Guests are often telling stories of their encounters with the playful pod of local dolphins.

It is not just nature-loving guests who are attracted to this eco-sanctuary. Local amenities attract active holidayers as well. There is a wealth of activities to suit all guests, including hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, ATV riding, and trips to nearby islands and national parks. The staff are all locals and will gladly point guests to the best trails and day trips in the area. The little town of Uvita and our little slice of serenity have seen the business’s occupation rates increase steadily year on year.

The Flutterby House offers two main income sources. The accommodation and the restaurant and bar, which doubles as an event space. The hostel includes:

-2 private treehouses
-8 private cabins
-3 full apartments with private bathrooms
-32 dorm beds in hostel-style rooms

The large mix of rooms caters to a large range of guests. Everyone from backpackers to honeymooners will enjoy this eco-friendly accommodation.

The restaurant and bar of the Flutterby House is a large income stream for the business as it attracts locals and guests of other hotels. It is one of the few vegan and vegetarian options in the area and offers a range of smoothies and snacks for health-conscious travelers. The Flutterby House bar hosts events like open mic nights and trivia nights to keep business booming on quieter days. On busier nights, there is live music and theme parties that are famous in Uvita.

This is an unmissable opportunity to move to Costa Rica and take the reins of an already established and successful business. The Flutterby House will not be on the market for long, so contact us immediately if you are interested.
