OCEAN MELODY...FULLY EQUIPPED, WALKING DISTANCE FROM BEACHES, NOW WITH POOL!

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 extra air-blown mattress is available on request 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 and video library on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa 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 NEW 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!

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

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!

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!

We Loved Ocean Melody!

We stayed almost three weeks at Ocean Melody in February. It was perfect for the two of us. The fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grilling area, and covered porch with dining table overlooking Marino Balleno National Park made eating in easy and pleasurable. The bathroom has a nicely tiled shower and the bath and beach towels were very nice. The private pool was so wonderful after a day of exploring the beautiful countryside of the Bahia Ballena community on the beach cruiser bikes. Early mornings were filled the sounds of howler monkeys and birds. We spied toucans, parrots, macaws and iguanas from the porch. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. The locals we met were very friendly. Uvita has banks, grocery stores, and dining within an easy bike ride. Massi, the owner/manager, was very helpful. We highly recommend Ocean Melody for the adventure traveler.

Relaxing oasis by the beach

My husband and I stayed at Ocean Melody for 4 nights and enjoyed every one of them. The listing description was accurate as were the photos. I'd actually say that the place looked nicer in person compared to the photos. Both the house and the pool were immaculately clean and the security system was on when we arrived. The whole unit is so well though out and had everything we needed, all in perfect working order. I do think it would be a tight fit for 4 people, but definitely doable, especially with the outdoor space.

There is an air conditioner in the bedroom that works amazingly well and meant comfortable nights sleeping even in the tropical weather. The living room has a futon and the tv is complete with a movie library (almost all movies in English). The kitchen has everything you need and also had a small styrofoam cooler, blender (plenty of ice cube trays in the freezer), small crock pot, toaster oven, microwave and coffee maker. There is a grill outside. There is a large grocery store on the main road and a few convenience stores with decent grocery supplies within a 10 minute walk. We also enjoyed a few meals out, favorites were La Fogata (pizza and bbq) and Sabor Espanol (great paella and sangria).

Our favorite thing to do in the morning was wake up early and walk or take the bikes down to the beach which was never crowded. We enjoyed spending midday in the hammock near the pool or on the small deck. A day trip to Sierpe for a mangroove tour was really fun, many people go there for trips to Corcovado and snorkeling/scuba diving. Definitely try out body boarding ($10 board rental for 24 hrs) or surf lessons from Uvita Surf School!

We didn't have a car with us and decided that next time we'd prefer to have one. It would have made day trips and trying out different restaurants easier. The area is very safe but it was tiring walking on dirt roads after dark. Many are well lit but it seemed like too much for the bikes.

We would definitely recommend this property. The property owners were very helpful both before hand and during our stay. We hope to visit again soon!

Pura Vida Uvita

My pup and I spent 2 weeks in Ocean Melody and were delighted with our time there! Massi and Sonia, the owners, were such wonderful hosts, making sure that every detail was attended to in the most prompt manner. The home is cozy and just right for one or two travelers. Located immediately next to the national park, I was serenaded nightly by the howler monkeys and enjoyed watching the white-faced monkeys frolic in the trees while sipping my morning coffee. What I find most incredible is that this little cabin has everything and the space is most efficiently used. Close to the beach, good grocery stores, banks, the works - if you're a nomad (I am temporarily looking to relocate possibly to Costa Rica from the States) looking for the right place to perhaps settle for a while, this is definitely the place! Do NOT miss walking the Whale's Tail in the park.

Private Cabina with pool

My husband and I stayed there for a week. It was close to the sights we wanted to see. Easy to get to. Cozy and we loved having the pool. Plus the outdoor shower was nice to clean off the salt & sand from the beach.

With the kitchen we cooked breakfast every morning and made some of our own lunches and dinners. We had access to a movie library. We even let the neighborhood know of some of our arrivals as we did set off the security alarm a few times...lol. So there is a security system for safety.

Bar Jolly Roger (chicken wings & burgers) and La Fogata (Bahia pizza) were our favorite restaurants. Go to the bakery across from the bank first thing in the a.m. for delicious pastries. Anything else we needed we could find right there in town.

We also went on a whale watching/ snorkeling tour set up through the Uvita Information Center.

The only downfall to the area is that a lot of the beaches are National Parks so you have to pay each day. Playa Hermosa was a free beach just North of Uvita and had great waves for boogie boarding.

The listing was accurate. The property was cleaned and maintained. I think the pool boy was there a couple times during our stay. Great customer service from the owner during the reservation process and after our stay. The people at the Uvita Information Center were helpful. I've already shown my pictures to people and they were impressed with the cabina as well as not realizing how inexpensive a week stay could be with all these amenities.

Ocean Melody has already been recommended to family and friends.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights towards the beginning of our two-week honeymoon in Costa Rica. It is tucked away in a Tico area (meaning you are surrounded by locals living their lives), which we really appreciated. It was very quiet, and we felt very safe walking to restaurants and to the beach at the National Park (~10 minute walk to food and ~15 minute walk to the National Park). We really enjoyed the pool to cool off in, and while not big, the house is fully equipped with everything you need. We also enjoyed watching the iguanas and birds from our porch in the mornings and evenings.
