OCEAN VIEW BUNGALOWS OVERLOOKING BALLENA NATIONAL PARK IN UVITA

Dominical Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 Separate Jungle Mountain Bungalows with ocean view. B1 sleeps 4/ B2 sleeps 2.

These open and airy bungalows are nestled in the mountains above Ballena National Park where fantastic ocean views and tropical breezes mingle with flocks of Toucans and Cusingas who are frequent visitors. Situated at 1300 feet, the vista overlooking Cano Island and the valley of Uvita are breathtaking both day and night during any season. The white water views and opportunity to spy migrating whales while watching the tide play hide and seek with the magnificent “whales tail” never fails to astonish no matter how many times you observe this amazing enigma. The exquisite orchestra of exotic birds and Howler Monkeys which greets you every morning will satiate your soul with peace and harmony and is often accompanied by the distant sound of the crashing waves. You are also guaranteed to share your day with many of the other local residents including Hummingbirds, White Faced Capuchin, Geckos, Parrots, and various frogs and numerous other amazing creatures; our Bungalows are situated in the sparsely populated jungle mountain area of Bejuco and surrounded by protected park land making our mountain a haven for all sorts of wildlife!

Even though you may not want to leave this tranquil paradise, a short fifteen minute trip to the bottom of the mountain will bring you directly into the center of the town of Uvita. Here you can stock up on groceries, do some banking, sign up for tours and visit local boutiques. Just a short 5 minute drive from the center of town you can enjoy the serene and isolated beaches of Ballena and Hermosa. Or, drive 15 minutes north and enjoy the surfing paradise of Dominical which is packed with beach side restaurants, tour agencies, and gift shops! Or enjoy a quiet day of snorkeling on your own at any of the beaches, as there are two sets of gear at the Bungalows for you to utilize!

Whether you need to get away to a peaceful paradise or are looking for days filled with fun activities, our simple and comfortable Bungalows are the perfect places to escape too! Pura Vida amigos!

About Kevin Malone and Alyson Rando

Kevin is an avid fisherman, and the captain of his own fishing charter business, Diablo Sportfishing, on both Cape Cod, Massachusetts and in Costa Rica. Aly, finished college with a degree in Leisure Management and has been fortunate enough to combine her education with her love for exotic places! Being that Costa Rica is one of the number one fishing spots the world coupled with the fact that this small country houses 5% of the worlds flora and fauna, neither Kevin nor Aly could think of a more appropriate place for them to live their lives; as this area is a true paradise to both of them!

Kevin Malone and Alyson Rando purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Kevin Malone and Alyson Rando chose Dominical

Before graduating from college, Aly applied to do an internship at a resort in Arenal, Costa Rica. Unfortunately, her Spanish speaking skills were not very strong at that time, and she did not get the job! So, years later, when her boyfriend, (now husband) Kevin, asked her where she wanted to go on vacation, she immediately knew that Costa Rica was the adventure her heart yearned to experience! Having heard that land in Costa Rica was relatively 'cheap', Kevin began investigating different areas on the south west coast and planned the entire 15 day vacation around meetings with realtors! Both Kevin and Aly instantly feel in love with the 2 acre parcel of land in Bejuco, and even though friends and family told them that they were crazy to buy a piece of land in a foreign country, they followed their hearts and purchased the land the day before going home!

What makes this bungalow unique

It has been a blessing to have found such an amazing and tranquil paradise which is surrounded by beauty and wildlife. Sitting on the deck every morning listening to the Howler Monkeys, tropical birds, and waves while drinking a cup of Costa Rican coffee and watching the Hummingbirds and Green Parrots dance among the flowers is a dream! Aly volunteers for a local dog rescue organization and enjoys fostering dogs and working at the clinic. She takes daily hikes up the mountain road with her four legged friends and is always amazed at the wildlife she sees, including Armadillos, Tree Frogs, monkeys, sloths, Toucans, etc. Whereas Kevin has developed some great friendships with the locals and enjoys fishing with them on a daily basis!

The view took my breath away

  • 5 of 5
We rented the smaller bungalow for a week and it was perfect for 2. Couldn't be happier with the choice to stay here. All the time at the house was spent on the deck relaxing and enjoying the view. It is so secluded and private, you feel completely surrounded by nature. Simply the most beautiful place I've ever been.

I was nervous about the road up in the green season, but it was not an issue at all with the recommended 4x4. It is rocky, bumpy, and steep, but manageable. The weather was delightful and I think it was a perfect time of year to visit. Location is outstanding as a jumping off point to beautiful beaches, Cano Island, Corcovado, good restaurants, and not crowded with tourists. Now that I'm home, I miss it terribly and I'm already planning a visit back to the bungalow ASAP!

Amazing Sunsets and Breathtaking View of the Ocean

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks here and had a wonderful time. We rented the smaller of the two houses: Bungalow 2 is an adorable 250 sq. ft cabina with everything you need, just perfect for two. Waking up to howler monkeys in the morning and watching toucans while enjoying Costa Rican coffee, perfection! Aly and Kevin are awesome hosts and are there to help if you need anything. We rented a Rav4 and it was great. The mountain has some steep hills and sharp turns but it is a mountain after all. It seemed like every trip we took (up or down), we’d see something that we hadn’t noticed before.

The wildlife in the area is truly amazing. We took a river tour in Sierpe that I would highly recommend. The beaches in the area are fabulous and there are so many, plus each one is unique. Many restaurants in Uvita may not look like much but the food is wonderful (like Roadshack Deli and La Fogota). And don’t forget to visit Ojochal at least three times so you can dine at: Citrus, Exotica and Azul, all are outstanding.

So much to see and do, it is a truly fantastic location. Can’t wait to return.

Paradise in the trees

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous place. The view of the ocean, whether at sunset or with a rain shower approaching, is just spectacular, and when the wind is right, you can hear the surf! Waking each morning to the Howler monkeys was a wonderful way to greet the day. Aly and Kevin are wonderful hosts and can make many suggestions for day trips, restaurants and shopping as they know the area very very well. A relaxing vacation with as much or as little adventure as you wish.

World Traveler Finally Finds Ultimate Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I just finished an unforgettable 6 night stay here. I have visited 20+ countries for both business and pleasure and can say without reservation that Kevin and Aly's Cabinas in Costa Rica are my favorite place on earth. From the breathtaking sunset views over the Pacific to the fascinating and beautiful lush jungle surroundings, Kevin and Aly's Cabinas are a perfect medium with which to enjoy all Costa Rica has to offer. Further, Kevin and Aly are awesomely laid back, to the point that our flight out of Costa Rica was delayed by two (2) days due to a snowstorm back home, and they were able to juggle things around to ensure we could stay in the cabin. Kevin and Aly also are incredibly knowledgeable of the local area and fun things to do, and helped to point myself and my friends to some pretty awesome activities, from world class surfing on deserted beaches to exploring awe inspiring waterfalls. While I usually try to see more and more of the world when I travel, I plan on returning to Kevin and Aly's annually, it's that perfect.

Owner's Response: We are glad that we could help you stay settled when your flights got canceled. We know how frustrating that can be, and adding to the difficulties with a change of venue would have made it much more unsettling; thankfully it worked our for everyone with some finagling! We always try to put ourselves in our guests shoes and accommodate their needs. We enjoyed meeting you and your group and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

What A View!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this beautiful spot for a week in February. The views are spectacular and the accommodations were first rate. The jungle is a few steps away with plenty of hiking, birds and monkeys. Waking to the Holler Monkeys was truly unique. We had a Toucan join us for breakfast every morning. Each night’s sunset more remarkable than before! Fishing, hiking, horseback riding, beaches, snorkling ......We’ll be back!

Our Bungalows are located at 1300 in the beautiful jungle mountain area of Bejuco, Uvita. We are located just far enough from civilization to feel as if you are isolated from the world! But, just a short 15 minute drive down the mountain and you are on the main Costanera, able to shop for groceries, go to banks, find amazing restaurants and local sodas, and visit the national parks and beaches for snorkeling and surfing! It is like being in two different worlds!
