Overview

Uvita House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, (sleeps 2-4)

For travelers who are looking for something more than budget, Ocean Melody is the place!

Private and comfortable for two guests, this brand new casita is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia.

Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves.

The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion.

Air conditioning provides extra cooling in the bedroom. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room sofa bed is available for young families with kids.

The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with South Italian tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV, with satellite and video library, on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa-bed and armchair.

The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.

The spacious external porch offers two rocking chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws!

The external tropical garden hosts a variety of tropical plants and it is equipped with a BBQ area, a round stone table and chairs, and outdoor shower. The parking place is private, gated and lightened at night.

The private pool and rancho will make your stay just perfect! The pool (6x3,5 meters) has internal stairs and a comfortable sidewalk where enjoying the sun and a fresh drink...or you can lay down on the pool lounge chairs in the shadow of the wooden (4x3 meters) rancho!

No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organizing mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from Ocean Melody!

No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With Ocean Melody you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimize your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

About Massi

Adriano and I (Massi) are two Italians travellers who came to Costa Rica through different paths and met in this wonderful South Pacific area of the Country, known as Costa Ballena.

In 2003 we started the first Property Management Company of the area and, since then, have managed more than 30 luxury properties all along the Coast.

Thanks to our business, we have grown a large knowledge of vacation houses and the needs of foreign vacationers. At the same time, we haven’t forgotten the pleasure and necessity of traveling with a limited budget!

Massi purchased this house in 2012

Why Massi chose Uvita

Ocean Melody is the synthesis of our experience, as it joins the accessible price with all the comforts travelers need during their vacation time.

You will enjoy the piece of mind of living in a cosy house managed by professional property managers, who live in the area and will always be available for assisting you!

What makes this house unique

We have built this Casita ourselves, giving our concept of vacation home to it . Houses along the Coast belong to two opposite concepts: on one side, very luxurious houses built by foreigners and provided with all comforts, but very isolated and very expensive; on the other side, local homes, with good rental prices but built without considering the basic comforts foreign travelers require.

Ocean Melody has been built looking for a joining point of these two concepts: Simple but with good taste, fully equipped for travelers’ comfort but without useless luxuries, private but not isolated, close to the beaches and still at a very accessible price!

Un hermoso lugar

Disfrutamos muchísimo la estadía en Ocean Melody. La casita esta muy bien equipada y excelentemente aseada. Tiene gran privacidad, seguridad y la piscina es una excelente opción para disfrutar hasta altas horas de la noche, por el clima cálido.
Uvita resulta ser un hermoso lugar para visitar y Ocean Melody un complemento perfecto para disfrutarlo.

A perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I was charmed by this casita! It was close to the town, convenience stores, and the National Forest. My mornings were spent on the patio, watching and listening to all the wildlife---the howler monkeys were my favorite!
Even though I never saw Massi in person, I could always communicate through email or phone if I needed anything, and he was always there (patiently) to help. I would certainly stay at Ocean Melody again, if I don't end up moving there permanently.

Che bellissima esperienza!!!

  • 5 of 5
Io e mia moglie abbiamo trascorso 2 mesi in Costa Rica ed abbiamo avuto la fortuna di trovare Ocean Melody, dove ci siamo fermati per 6 meravigliose notti. Senza dubbio il luogo migliore, in termini di rapporto qualita’/prezzo, di tutto il Paese. In nessun altro luogo abbiamo potuto trovare, per appena 70$/notte, la qualita’ e cura per i dettagli di Ocean Melody. Non solo la casa possiede tutto cio’ di cui un viaggiatore ha bisogno per il suo riposo (la piscina e’ semplicemnte fantastica!) ma tutta la proprieta’ trasmette l’amore e la passione che i proprietari hanno messo nella loro creatura. La proprieta’ e’ perfettamente ubicata davanti al Parco Nazionale (la vista di scimmie, iguana, e ogni tipo di uccelli diventa dopo pochi giorni una piacevole normalita’) e a pochi minuti dalle spiagge, ed i proprietari sono disponibili in ogni momento per rispondere a ogni domanda.
Grazie! Torneremo presto!!!

Comfortable, well-equipped cabin at the edge of the animal kingdom

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had the good fortune to stay at the Ocean Melody for 5 nights during the start of the area's rainy season in May 2014. The property is within shouting distance of its neighbours but thanks to clever landscaping it is mostly invisible to those neighbours, affording guests with a great deal of sunny privacy. We were pleasantly serenaded by monkeys, crickets and frogs throughout our stay, reminding us of our place in the cycle of nature. The owners are environmentally responsible and provided means for efficient recycling of all of our garbage items. All of our amenities (A/C, fans, wifi, TV, hot water, shower, pool, lights, gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, fridge, etc) were clean and in perfect working condition. The owner, Massi, was quick to respond helpfully on the one occasion when we had a question.

The outdoor and indoor cabin furniture is beautiful, mobile and sturdy. By stacking a couple of the outdoor stools, I was able to introduce a temporary working desk into our air-conditioned bedroom (which looks out over the pool and the forest beyond). This provided me with a comfortable way to work on my laptop while still enjoying the air conditioning and other benefits of the cabin.

Tip #1: as this is a one-story cabin at the edge of a national park, we found it helpful to turn most of our cabin lights off at night in order to avoid attracting attention from the tiny creatures of the air. I would also recommend the use of a natural (e.g. lemon eucalyptus-based) insect repellant once in the day and once at night to ensure a sound sleep.

Tip #2: as other reviewers have mentioned, we found it was worth it to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and take advantage of the nearby world-class restaurants (e.g. 20 minutes down the highway in Ojochal), which are often in secluded "off-road" locations.

Tip #3. You really have to try the swimming pool, it's great and not just for show!

Tip #4. Familiarize yourself with the exact landmarks starting at the main highway to arrive at the cabin if you will be leaving and returning at night.

Our stay at Ocean Melody was peaceful and highly memorable for us and we look forward to a return visit.

Parfait!

  • 5 of 5
Ocean Melody est vraiment comme toutes les descriptions l'affirment: votre petit paradis personnel! Calme, idéalement située, confortable,propre, bien équipée... Nous avons profité de la plage (à pied,) du village ( à bicyclette,) et visité la réserve Hacienda Baru ( en autobus).
Tout est facile d'accès.
En relaxant sur le patio ou dans la piscine, nous avons observé des iguanes, des toucans des singes et une multitude d'oiseaux différents. Et tout ceci à un prix inespéré.
C'est un endroit intime où tout est bien pensé, et après y avoir séjourné 3 jours, nous étions bien tristes de devoir nous en aller... Nous pensons déjà à y faire une autre visite, et plus longue cette fois!
Merci Massi, pour avoir répondu à toutes mes questions et pour le processus de réservation efficace et agréable.
Pura Vida!
