A Turnkey Business Within Walking Distance To A Spectacular Scenic Beach
Is your Costa Rica getaway calling you? Could this be your time to escape the traffic, the
noise and hectic lifestyle and come to a land where a laid-back slower pace awaits? And yet
a land where adventure is close by. Picture spectacular blue ocean beaches, captivating
sunsets, mountain volcano tours, exotic colorful wildlife. Your home away from home, the
historic Flutterby House hostel, restaurant and bar can be yours.
This Flutterby effect captured the imagination of two sisters from Northern California. Their
adventurous business owner parents encouraged them when they said, “If you are going to
do something, do it right”.
Many who visit the magic of the Flutterby House, where the ocean meets the jungle, are
instantly captivated by its atmosphere, and end up extending their stays for much longer
than anticipated. Will you join them?
Butterflies are not only symbols for the beauty of nature and the soul, but also of
transformation. As we travel through the journey of our lives, we encounter endless turns,
shifts, and conditions that cause us to morph into a better version of ourselves. Much like
the transformation from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. During this journey your
small positive changes, your actions and ideas that you make now in life will have a
powerful and lasting effect on your future. This is part of the Flutterby Effect.
Picture yourself waking up to the sound of howler monkeys and scarlet macaws in the
jungle around you, in your own tropical open-air home. You listen to the ocean waves
crashing on the beach just 200 meters away; as you sip your morning coffee and watch the
hummingbirds and butterflies flutter around your backyard garden. You go for a morning
surf and join a yoga class on the yoga deck; all before enjoying a delicious organic
breakfast, prepared by your smiling kitchen staff. Feeling fully awake and ready to face your
day, you are finally ready to head to work...but wait..... you’re already there!
This dream of a lifestyle doesn’t have to be something you only imagine. It could all be
yours now! We are offering a fully turnkey operation; with all amenities included.

"This place has a great vibe, fun employees and comfortable rooms. But it was super close
to the beach. I would suggest it to anyone who has a car rental or a bike." JM 2020
Cool place and unique experience
“What a cool place and unique experience. The best part is the welcoming and friendly staff
(shout out to Felipe). Once you’re there, you’re part of the “family.” The bar and food are
great too.” D. 2020
“The best fish tacos and huevos rancheros!! We ate there 3 times in our 4 day stay!
Wonderful outdoor space with a great vibe! The food is very tasty and reasonably priced!
Walking distance to the beach!” C.W.
Quality and Fairly Priced Hostel
“Food and cocktails were good with fair prices. The cabins were rustic and gave an authentic
vibe. Nighttime security guard was a relief. Mosquito nets and towels were provided. Great
place for younger folks to stay as they work hard to include social activities there. Owner
was very friendly and gave us nice advice. One of the best hostels we came across!”
Flutterby House is AMAZING
“The is one of the coolest hostels ever...it was located super close to the beach (5 min
walking tops!!) and the food was so good that we had to force ourselves to branch out and
try other places. The sisters who run the place have put a lot of work into making their
dream come true and both were always on property helping and mingling with the guests. A
real cool chilled out vibe that isn't to be missed!!”
The Best Accomodations in Uvita
“We stayed in the Private treehouse, and it was absolutely lovely. The room/flat is
outstanding, the view breathtaking and the staff is friendly and very helpful.
If you happen to be in Uvita please be sure to stay here!” CL
Slice of Paradise
“This hostel is honestly unlike any other! The staff are kind, attentive and more than
helpful. The owners Pam and Kim go above and beyond to make sure guests are taken care
of. The beer is always cold and the food is delicious (for the love of god, PLEASE order
yourself the cobb salad - you’ll be glad you did)! I can’t recommend the Flutterby House
"When my daughter asked me to come visit her in vita and stay at the Flutterbye house, I
was wary. I have to say it’s one of my favorite places. The sisters are amazing, the food ...
yummy and fresh, the classes, massage, scheduled beach cleanups... all make me smile!
I ended up moving nearby, but still stop in for a Spunky Monkey or a Cobb Salad... or just
to say hi!" BB
