Our casually elegant home “Coastal Breezes”, offers you a jaw-dropping ocean view and the unique location offers the utmost privacy. It is perfect for a secluded romantic getaway. Almost every room in this predominately glass home captures the most spectacular ocean views imaginable.
Our home is located in the beautiful Rancho Costa Verde Estates (RCVE) in Escaleras on the Pacific Coast between Dominical and Uvita. It is a private community of estate lots created by long-time developers who are committed to reforesting and re-establishing wildlife corridors throughout the property. There is plenty of wildlife both on our 20 acres and throughout the rest of RCVEs 1200 acres. Watch for toucans, parrots, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarundis, pizotes, peccaries, hummingbirds, morpho butterflies , sloths, and much more.
Further Details: Beach View: From all rooms in the house (except the laundry room) you can see the waves role in on Playa Hermosa, Uvita's famous Whale's Tail, Playa Ballena, and further south. Ocean View: The house is uniquely situated and provides for a jaw dropping 180 degree ocean view. Mountain View: Views of primary rainforest. Deck/Patio: Beautifully tiled deck surrounds the house for dining, sunbathing, and a private outdoor shower. Gas/Electric BBQ Grill: Propane grill can be wheeled to your favorite deck location. Full Kitchen: Full sized fridge, 5-burner stove top with oven and separate warmer. Cooking Utensils Provided: Complete with toaster oven, coffee maker and more. Refrigerator: Full sized with freezer and stainless steel. Wood Fireplace: It's not an indoor fireplace but rather an outdoor fire pit for nighttime bonfires.
We call our home 'Coastal Breezes' for good reason. With the nearly constant gentle ocean breezes in the daytime and the mountain breezes at night, you will be pleasantly surprised at the comfortable temperature which is generally 7 degrees cooler than at sea level. Just slide open all the glass doors and windows and enjoy outdoor tropical living at its finest. There are also ceiling fans in the bedrooms, kitchen and living area.
The house is only one year old and was designed to maximize the spectacular views from every room. It sits on the Fila Costena, the ridge closest to the ocean on the entire Pacific coast of Coast Rica. It’s reminiscent of Big Sur on the central coast of California but with a tropical flair. The house comfortably sleeps 4 with 2 bedrooms, and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep. There is an additional comfy 8’ long couch in the living area and a blow up mattress can be obtained upon request.
The modern kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove/oven and all the associated cookware and cutlery. You can dine inside or out, either way you’ll feel like you're suspended in air and you’ll be surrounded by nature. You can shower inside or perhaps you'd prefer the outside shower nestled in the jungle, just one step outside the main bathroom.
Only 15 minutes to the closest beach, you may want to try kayaking, surfing, bodysurfing or horseback riding at the beach. Other activities include visiting Nauyaca Falls on horseback, scuba diving or snorkeling at Isla Ballena or Cano Island, or deep sea fishing. Some prefer kayaking the mangroves of the Terraba River or paddling into wave cut caves along the coast. You can walk out to the tip of the Whale’s Tail at low tide from Ballena National Park or to hidden coves and expansive beaches up and down the coast. At Hacienda Baru you can sail through the jungle on a zip line or take a bird watching or canopy tour.
