My wife, daughter and I starting building in the area in 2005, and lived here full time until mid 2010. We love this area, and more importantly the amazing community of friends and local businesses that make it so special. For family reasons, we had to move back to the states, but we visit often and miss all of the wonderful people in our area!

Kevin and Mary purchased this house in 2005

I've traveled the world extensively and when I first laid eyes on the Whale's Tail view from this lot, I was awestruck. We fell in love with the area and the people, and it just keeps getting better...

Luxury Jungle Living....This house provides a great way to be in an adventurous area with all the fun things to do in the rainforest and at the beach. After a long hard day of surfing, ziplining, Atv's, fishing, or horses, there is nothing better than getting up to the house, where it is a little cooler, jumping in the pool, and living in luxury in the Jungle. It's like getting away from it all, but still coming home to a well appointed home with all the modern amenities.

PUT THIS ONE AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST

  • 5 of 5
We booked this wonderful home for 6 nights in May. It wasn't as good as the description and photos would indicate---it was much better. Great house with everything we needed, fantastic location and landscaping, unbelieveable views. Trina and Alberto made us feel like we were at home. I personally found the road up to the house to be a non-issue. It's a very scenic drive, easily handled by a 4 WD. Would recommnd this property to anyone wanting a secluded location with all the amenities. Thanks Kevin, for sharing your jungle haven.

TERRIFIC PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a lovely stay at Casa Cola Ballena - two families of four. The house, if possible, is even more beautiful than the pictures make it seem. Everyone involved was super easy to work with and extremely helpful, promptly answering any questions we had. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone planning to visit the Uvita area - I can't imagine there is a better deal than this!
Only two things I would mention - first, there is Atlas the house cat. He is a lovely sweet cat, and he was OK staying outside (one of our group has mild-moderate cat allergies). If there is someone in your party with severe cat allergies, however, this would be something to consider. The second is the internet connection - not surprisingly (in retrospect) this is a bit spotty in the remote mountains of Costa Rica. So don't plan to get a lot of computer work done or you will be frustrated. But then, you are on vacation in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, so you shouldn't be spending that much time on your computer anyway!
The road was definitely steep, but I don't think scary (and I am quite afraid of heights), as there are no points with steep drop-offs on the sides. We did just fine with the Hyundai Santa Fe provided by Douglas at Adobe. The Waterfall restaurant near town (on the road to the house) had terrific food! (but no beer). Thanks to Kevin, Trina and Alberto for being top notch hosts!!

THIS IS THE HOUSE TO RENT!

  • 5 of 5
If you are traveling to Costa Rica he Whale's Tail is not to be missed! The view of the Whale's Tail from this rental is spectacular and the house is amazing! We saw tucans everyday. Atlas the house cat is super cool - comes to his name - and very friendly. The supermarket at the bottom of the hill is American style and there is a good restaurant next to the supermarket. Make sure to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and stop by the waterfall bar on the way up the hill to the house - there is a short trail to a waterfall pool - and great food! The care taker and grounds keeper are great! Make sure to have an approximate meeting time with care taker at the Bank of Costa Rica at the bottom of the hill's intersection with Highway 34. Your smart phone likely won't work in Costa Rica so plan ahead! Pura Vida

Owner's Response: Thanks Brent!. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and we appreciate your constructive comments. Smart phone's will work off of the wi-fi at the house and at many of the local businesses. Once you arrive and meet Trina, she will also provide you with a local cell phone, so it's really only that first day where you will need to coordinate ahead of time.

PURA VIDA

  • 5 of 5
Dear Kevin and Mary, We had a wonderful experience for our 1st time traveling to Costa Rica. Mostly due to staying in your beautiful, luxurious home above the sea, where we were surrounded by unfamiliar sounds of birds, monkeys and the beautiful landscape. Atlas the cat and Alberto the gardener were sweethearts and a welcome presence. Alberto brought us delicious fruit and took us on a hike in the jungle!! Cool!! We ventured out each day to do and see something new but we ended up at Playa Dominical several times. The kids loved to surf and hang out with the locals. We drank lots of fresh coconut water, freshly squeezed orange juice and ate the best ceviche and plantain chips ever. This was our Best Vacation Yet! So pleased with our VRBO choice. Thank you!!

PURA VIDA - INDEED

  • 5 of 5
Great house, great location, best view anywhere on the coast.
Now to get that view you have to work for it, but its worth it, you simply need to prepare each day for one trip down and one trip back up. So one day stay down for sunset and dinner, the next day get home in time for snacks and drinks, sunset, dinner and games or movies.
Dont miss - waterfall repelling with costa canyoning, ATV wiht Will and the superman zip line is a must do as well. And when you go to Costa Canyoning be sure to as for Barney, he's the man and can hook you up with any activity including he taught an old guy like me how to surf in three days.
Cheers, thanks kevin and oh yes, Alberto the gardner, care taker is great and will cook you dinner one night if you're nice and try to ask him in broken spanglish..
