Property Name:Casa La Perla de La Colonia Amazing Pacific Ocean Property with Beach Access and Ocean Views
Region: So/Cent Pac. Coast, Southern & Central Pacific Coast between Puntarenas and Golfito/Osa Peninsula. Right Next to Marino Ballena National Park.
City/Town: Uvita (home of Marino Ballena National Park and The Whale Tail).
Short Description: Amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and the famous Whale Tail make this house one of a kind. It offers 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, waterfall pool, and short walk to the beach.
This Costa Rica estate home has frontage with both the Coastal Highway in the back and the beach access road in the front. An easy trail to the beach road from the property make the beach accessible in about 3 minutes on foot.
This newly built dream house overlooks the waves crash on the yellow sandy beach of La Colonia below and is located just South of Uvita. The home is very well built and within easy walking distance to one of Marino Ballena National Parks's many pristine beaches, while most of the services are available in Uvita and can be reached within mere minutes.
The well equipped kitchen and large front deck are accommodating to both. The kitchen has an oversized professional gas-stove (with a double propane tanks) with a powerful hood to avoid any smells in the rest of the house. Materials and appliances used are first class, and include teak cabinets and doors and granite countertops.
The kitchen opens up to the dining area, which offers great views of the ocean and, through a very large (triple pane) window, of the mountains as well. However, the large balcony overlooking the beach below is where one would likely spend most of the time. The cool ocean breezes, the great view and the sounds of the waves below make it a very comfortable and relaxing place to hang out.
The house offers 2 identical (mirrored) master suites with full baths & AC's and 2 additional bedrooms sharing a full bath. The master suites open up to the large balcony through large sliding glass doors. The whole house is designed to take advantage of the natural air flow and is very comfortable. There is air conditioning in the 2 master bedrooms suites and each area has a ceiling fan for those rare moments when there is no natural breeze.
Next to the house there are a swimming pool (with kiddie pool) with its own waterfall, and a rancho/pool house. The pool offers a tropical feeling and lots of privacy with great views of the Pacific Ocean.
There is wireless internet installed and HDTV's in the living room with built in DVR. And land line phone to help in your stay.
Uvita is only minutes by car and offers a wide array of services including super markets, banks, internet cafes, a health clinic, dentist, pharmacy, veterinarian, appliances stores and much more. There are several good restaurants there, but for a truly extraordinary dining experience there are several restaurants in Ojochal (about 10 minutes South) that are highly recommended. If you like golfing, San Buenas 18 holes golf course is only 20 minutes away.
For those who value the best ocean views, an easy walk to the beach, and minutes to Marino Ballena National Park La Perla is a great property.
Our Family of 4 had a great stay at Casa La Perla. The house is located just south of Uvita, in the beautiful South Pacific region of Costa Rica. House is located right on the Pacific Ocean, with amazing views of the Pacific & the famous Whale Tail Beach. The house location is great; right beside the Bahia Ballena Marine National Park. The park offers miles of beautiful, secluded beaches with calm waters very good for swimming. There is also a very cool jungle, swimming waterfall behind the town of Uvita that our kids really loved.
The house is very spacious, with 4 good size bedrooms, large living /dining room, and an amazing gourmet kitchen with everything you need to cook/eat at home. Beds are comfortable and the AC’s in the bedrooms were helpful at night when sleeping. And the pool area is fantastic! With a beautiful rock waterfall, tropical plants all around, and close views of the Pacific and Whale Tail. And a short walk to a beautiful beach right below the house. All of us also really loved watching groups of monkeys heading to the beach in the mornings from the back deck of the house.
All in all we were very happy with choosing La Perla for our stay in the Puntarenas area. The area not is so crowded, house is very safe with a caretaker on property, and the tropical pool area is amazing. If you want fantastic Pacific Ocean views, right next to a nice beach, a high-end house. Then this is a great choice. We really had nothing to complain about other then the BBQ ran out of gas one day. We plan to come back again as we love CR and its friendly people!
I really enjoyed being so close to the beach with the amazing sunset view. The stairs down to the beach were a nice touch so we did not have to drive in the morning. All of the banks, supermarkets and restaurants were within 1 mile of the home so that was very important as we cooked and grilled almost every night. Most of the homes to rent in Playa Uvita are way up the hill so the direct highway access to your home made it much easier with my wife's family.
Kids had a blast and the adults did too. Great job Minor and staff!!
See you soon!!
Our family of 5 adults from Canada stayed for three days at this beautiful home. Other reviews are accurate and we would just suggest a few improvements to take this vacation home from great to amazing. Having all the bedrooms air conditioned is very much needed, the dishwasher requires proper installation so that it did not pitch forward from the wall when being loaded, dish clothes and tea towels for the kitchen are needed, a new kitchen faucet and finally, beach /pool towels for at least 8 people would be nice. The new partially completed trail through the property was much appreciated and will be a great improvement when completed. Although it is steep, it shortens the travel time to the beach. The beach itself is beautiful and the waves lots of fun. Minor , the real estate agent/house manager and the caretakers next door were very helpful.We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend this home.
This house is very beautiful with a spacious living and dining area. The kitchen has plenty of appliances and a large dining table in addition to a countertop dining area. As a different reviewer stated the two ocean facing rooms have air conditioning, private bathrooms and patio doors out to the deck. The roadside rooms share a bathroom and have no air conditioning so with windows open the noise from the road is somewhat loud with jake braking trucks.
The pool area is beautiful with a grill and bathroom right there. There's also a shower on the back side of the pool building which we didn't find until the last day. It was the best shower on the property! The showers inside were confusing and didn't have great pressure. The toilets were very low flow and low pressure as well.
The trails to the beach do not leave from the property and you must walk on the highway to access the trails to the beach. Both ways down to the beach were nice and we heard howler monkeys.
There was a resident "Jesus Christ Lizard" in the yard and other large insects and bugs. Some bugs visited us indoors as well but a little bit of Deet sprayed kept them at bay. The caretakers were great and we felt safe and secure while staying there.
Uvita was wonderful with good restaurants and Dominical was nice too. I'd definitely visit again and recommend this property to friends. The photos are accurate and the house is well maintained. I wish I were still there...
Stayed at La Perla Villa last week (March 2014 in Uvita Costa Rica). We had 2 adult couples and 2 kids for our stay ---a total 6. The house was beautiful, with 4 nice spacious bedrooms and amazing Pacific Ocean views from pretty much all the house (especially master bedrooms, living/dining room). And the best part of the house was the awesome pool area with beautiful tropical plants/trees all around and a nice rock waterfall flowing into the pool all overlooking a wide open direct view of the Pacific Ocean.
And also a great view direct to the famous Whale Tale which was very cool. Plus villa sits right on the Ballena National Marine Park which has great beaches and is a very nice swimming beaches /not too rough water. Beach is only a few minutes walk down the hill. We also saw quite a few monkeys in the mornings in the canopy from the pool making their way to the beach which our kids loved.
We really liked Uvita where house is located. It is a nice little town with quite a few nice restaurants, banks, and a grocery store and is very safe area which was important to us. It is also close to Dominical just 15 minutes to the north and a good surfing area although not as good swimming beaches as Uvita. The villa also had a very nice open kitchen, High end appliances, large refrigerator, big dining table, gas stove and everything you need. Villa very well equipped including linens/towels and new furniture with nice TV. Villa has a phone and free wireless internet which both worked fine. Only recommendation is might need more beach towels then 6 as we went through them pretty fast.
Bottom Line---if you are looking for quiet stay, safe villa, with close beautiful beaches, fantastic Pacific views and a close by very nice beach next to The Whale Tale----then this is a great choice! And Minor and rental agent and the caretaker are very helpful during your stay.
Recommended for: Those who want to stay next to Ballena State Park. With great close by beaches / walk to the Whale Tail. And want fantastic direct Pacific Ocean views from villa.
Perla de la Colonie,
My wife, myself and three kids (adults..now, with our granddaughter and my kid’s partners), 8 in total stayed there in January. Uvita is a beautiful area and not as touristy as some of the other places closer to San Jose.
The villa was very clean, well equipped and spacious and certainly met our needs. The location overlooking the ocean and the sound of the waves made for a fantastic atmosphere. The pool was uses often and provided an alternative to the beach.
The two bedrooms facing the ocean have a great view and are air conditioned. Unfortunately the other two bedrooms face the highway, are noisy and not air conditioned. The truck noise is substantial but the location is exceptional from a number of other perspectives.
Supermarkets and bank machines are close and the roads are in great shape.
The villa could use a few more chairs in the dining area if the group is more than six.
Good and reliable WiFi coverage throughout the villa.
The caretaker lives right next door which is convenient and reassuring. The entrance is gated and locked at night although we never felt uneasy with the place or the surroundings.
The rental agent was very helpful and easy to contact both during the reservation period and during the stay.
