About Kevin and Mary

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

Why Kevin and Mary chose Uvita

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... In 9 years, I haven't seen a better view of the Whale's Tail!

What makes this house unique

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.

Proud 60s

  • 4 of 5

Amazing view which no one could psssibly get tired of with the changing tides plus bird, butterflies & coatis all visiting the garden. Road access is very challenging especially in the dark, we will not miss the ride up & down the mountain. Baboo furniture is a nice touch but more hanging space for clothes would be welcome. Caretaker/gardener, Alberto was very friendly despite the different languages & he took us on a couple of rainforest walks which were very interesting. The jaccuzi bath was very relaxing after such treks. We also enjoyed the swimming pool which was very refreshing after our sightseeing journeys. Our 3 weeks here were relaxing & peaceful.

the Pictures don't lie

  • 5 of 5

It's every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photos - maybe even more so. The pictures can't completely convey the solitude and the bird / frog sounds. Trina gave us such a warm, personal welcome and it was nice to have her lead us up the hill the first time. (Don't let the HILL worry you, with any kind of 4-wheel drive it's a breeze. FUN, even.) There are lots of restaurants and a very complete grocery store within 10 to 20 minutes. We didn't really visit the restaurants much because the kitchen is so nice we fixed most of our meals "at home". There is nice ocean swimming, snorkeling, and playing in the waves also within 15 or so minutes. (That is, if you can tear yourself away from the great little pool with it's comfortable chairs and hammock.)

I would definitely come back or recommend this place to friends and family.

The highlight of our Costa Rica experience!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to describe how truly magical this place is. When you arrive, you will meet Trina and Alberto. They are some of the kindest, warmest people you will ever meet. What a pleasure it is to know them! When you walk in the house, your breathe will be taken away by the beauty of the space. It was clean and elegant. Every detail appeared to be carefully and purposefully chosen. Nothing was out of place. As you walk through the house, you may need to sit several times so that you won't faint from shear excitement. It just gets better and better. The bathtub in the master bath is luxurious! The outdoor shower is amazing. The pool, the deck...one thing is more amazing than the last. If I had to pick a favorite thing about this place, I couldn't. My husband and I stayed there on our honeymoon, and it was our favorite part of our whole trip to Costa Rica, hands down. Private, beautiful, romantic. It doesn't get any better. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 5 days, and it was one of the best experiences of our lives! Thank you Kevin & Mary for sharing your piece of paradise with us! The view of the Whale’s Tail from the deck/house is out of this world. We found ourselves spending a lot of time just sitting on the deck, or swimming in the pool, absorbing the sights and sounds of nature. There are so many amazing places to explore within driving distance from the house - fantastic restaurants, beautiful beaches, fun adventure excursions. We felt like we really got a chance to experience what makes Costa Rica such a unique place, rather than just having the same old beach vacation that you might get in the more touristy areas. Kevin and Mary left so many great suggestions of places to go and people to contact to really put our trip over the top.

Kevin and Mary's house is truly a special place.

Primera vacation home base.

  • 5 of 5

Kevin has a beautiful home with amazing views of the Pacific with Cola Ballena as feature. The house is gorgeous, well maintained, and sparkling clean. It is a quiet wonderful place to relax. The trees, flowers, and wild life enhance the experience. The property manager and gardener are very helpful and accommodating.

Wow everything was great .I have been going to Costa Rica on a fishing trip for 23 years & this is the most spectacular place I have stayed at.I love dealing with people like Kevin who is promt to reply & always to the point,Trina,Alberto were great Atlas(the cat) was freindly obediant & I think would fend off a couger if it entered the deck area.The road up to the house is not scarry but a challange the 7 passanger 4X4 Nissan we had rented ran out of power first time up ,but once we unloaded the luggage & Trina suggested we turn off the A/C we had no problem.Hoping the house is available to rent next year.
