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

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.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5
What you see is what you get! Stunning views, and relaxing pool, nice outdoor sitting area (covered) and very comfortable bedrooms. The house has everything you need! Trina was an amazing host and resolved all small issues we had. And fast. Though he was not there, it was great dealing with Kevin as well. Roberto took some of our group members out for a tour and introduced them to the jungle, the different trees, animals and birds. Atlas, the cat, took care of the surroundings and we were happy we didn't see any snakes during our stay! The best part of the experience was to be awaken by the noise of the monkeys and the birds. I recorded a 3 min audio so I can set it up as my wake up sound track... priceless. The views were stunning! I strongly recommend this home!

Cannot imagine a more spectacular view of the Whale's Tail from anywhere! The hillside setting of this home allows for completely unobstructed views of the ocean and jungle...we only went inside to sleep and cook, the remainder of the time was spent outside on the generous patio and deck area.
The home was spotlessly clean when we checked in. Don met us in town and escorted us up the mountain upon arrival...the road is not bad by Costa Rica standards but 4 wheel drive is mandatory....just take your time and enjoy the scenery on the drive!!
There were a couple of maintenance issues here....two of the three bedroom AC units did not work and two of the three floor fans did not work. To his credit, Kevin responded almost immediately to my e-mail about the AC units and offered to have someone come work on them...my choice to not have workers come during my stay...and Don took the two broken fans to town to have repairs done, just not completed during my 6 night stay.
I would not hesitate to stay here again and plan on doing so as soon as possible! Everything you need is right here, and you can pack light because there is a washer and dryer to take care of the dirty clothes.
If you stay here, go to Tortilla Flats in Domenical for the best Mahi sandwich you have ever eaten!! And DO NOT miss the roadside ceviche stand at Playa Hermosa...but go early as he is often sold out by 1pm!
Thank you Kevin and Mary for making this beautiful home available!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I arrived the day you left and we repaired the AC unit in that wasn't working. The other two units were working fine, just batteries in the remote control.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back for the returning client discount!

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!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to give us feed back and a nice honest review. The internet is currently set at a basic level. I can stream videos and work from the house when I am here and I find it sufficient for FaceTime and Skype. Future renters, please let me know if you require higher speeds for work or some other reason, and I can have the speed boosted for a small fee. Please just give me a few days notice and we'll take care of you!

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.
