Why Richard & Debby Hennessy chose Uvita

After owning several properties in the Zona Sur area, we were lucky enough to find this property in the exclusive Costa Verde Estates. We have seen no other property with views to match what you will find here in our home.

What makes this villa unique

Bomber view of the Whales Tale, Pacific Ocean, Osa Peninsula and Caño Island await you as you sit at the outdoor granite table to enjoy your breakfast. Toucans and parrots may come by to serenade and entertain you. The 1900' elevation insures comfortable temperatures virtually every day of the year.

We designed this house especially for this lot and to suit our comfortable lifestyle. It is a great house for entertaining and we've had more than 30 guests here comfortably.

I chose this Villa to experience the rainy season in Uvita. The drive up from the pavement is a 4x4 only route, especially after a shower. I did spend a few days at a time relaxing by the pool and cooking for myself so I did not need to drive to town every day. The Jolly Roger bar is just a couple km down the road and I had many excellent hamburgers there. This house is the best built that I have stayed at in Costa Rica. The privacy in the back is great and from the kitchen or front yard you can wave to neighbors as they pass by the gate. The security is very good due to the distance from town and the security gate for the community. With just the fan on in the bedroom it was very comfortable. The owners are taller than me as the master bath has tall amenities. However the main bathroom was just perfect! Even in the rainy season there were no biting insects to speak of. The house is well laid out and functional for an awesome retreat. Thanks Richard for letting me share your home.

Was perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great location, very well appointed.

From the photos you can see that this is a beautiful home in paradise. What you can't see from the photos is the high quality of finishings and construction as well as the overall cleanliness of the property.

We stayed here with our 1.5 and 7 year old children. We had no concerns over security, the water was safe to drink and the home is very clean (we had to keep an eye on on our daughter around the pool of course).

As the owner will tell you, a four-wheel-drive vehicle is a must for the drive up the hill from highway to the house (not at all dangerous but takes some time and care).

The owner will recommend great restaurants and the local markets and stores will provide whatever you need.

We would return without hesitation.

Amazing Property with Insane Views!

  • 5 of 5

Went down to Dominical for our annual surf trip. Upon arrival at the villa we were pretty blown away by the house itself and spectacular views from on top of the mountain. Swimming in the infinity pool was an added bonus. This amazing house made it difficult to leave every day and it's open air layout made it perfect for enterataining. The house is nicely located between Uvita and Dominical with many accessible beaches for surfing. The owner and caretaker were very responsive and helpful in the event we had any questions. Overall we had an excellent vacation and would definitely go back. Thanks!

Owner's Response: We're thrilled you and your friends enjoyed our house so much. As you found, the pictures really cannot convey the incredible views, fabulous location and all that the Costa Rican Zona Sur has to offer. Please come back soon.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rica has become my favorite destination for a tropical escape. This is the first time we rented a home and enjoyed the experience so much, we will be going back again next winter! The house is in a gated community and situated high on the pacific coastline, with 180 ocean views providing the most incredible sunsets every evening. The location is simple to get to and local to restaurants, beaches and the grocery stores. The home is beautifully appointed, with an open, airy living space and gorgeous views from every location. We loved the private outdoor showers off each bathroom. The house was designed with much thought towards visitors whether a few couples vacationing together or a family with young children.

We like to eat-in occasionally and prepare our meals rather than dining out every day. We found the kitchen had all the amenities we needed. On the nights we chose to go out, we found many wonderful restaurants very close by. If you wander a little south near the town of Ojochal we would recommend “Exotica” for a great dinner. The menu selections and ambiance are great, as is the owner Lucy!

Locally there are challenging hikes to take or just relaxing strolls near the house. The nearby beaches are beyond description and each has it’s own character whether a secluded cove with caves filled with rushing ocean water or more public ones with restaurants and vendor markets to stroll through while on the beach. Our favorite was Playa Hermosa, where we would buy the best cup of ceviche to eat while watching the surfers. Manuel Antonio National Park is less than an hour away and simply unbelievable; it was also just rated in the top 25 beaches in the world by Trip Advisor!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rica is a paradise and this place embodies it perfectly. The beaches are within minutes for the house where warm ocean water and great surf awaits! Breath-taking ocean views, glorious sunsets and star studded nights make it easy to unwind. There are plenty of wonderful places to eat out however,the chef's kitchen is a treat! The house is meticulous, well equipped and left this guest wanting for nothing. Zip-lining, the National Park and lingering pool-side at the villa makes me want to return soon.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you loved our house. It is very, very special to us and we look forward to the day when we will be there full time (almost). The location is the best we could find in the Zona Sur after more than 5 years of looking. It has clearly one of the most spectacular vistas in the area. As one of the reviewers has said, the photos don't lie, in fact, they can't compare to the reality.

Mountaintop Home-Away-From-Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is perfect: amazing views, elegant and spacious house, gorgeous pool and outside spaces. Great balance of providing everything you need to feel like you’re at home, without ever feeling like you’re in someone else’s home. We were a big group, but never felt on top of one another, because there was plenty of room to spread out. I loved the guesthouse for some extra privacy. You will never get tired of waking up and looking out at that incredible view—always changing, beautiful, and so relaxing! Some days, it was hard to want to leave the house because it was so nice just staying up there and taking it all in. When you do head down to sea level, you’re right in the thick of lots of good restaurants and magnificent beaches. And then, after a good day of surf lessons or hiking, you'll find you just can’t wait to pick up some fresh fish and head back up to watch the sunset from your mountaintop home-away-from-home. Perfect!

Owner's Response: Perfect, that's how we feel about the house, location, climate, view and ambiance. It's nice to have our feelings validated. Certainly the guest house view is one that everyone who stays there will remember forever. So glad you enjoyed your stay, we look forward to your return.
