Overview

Uvita House Rental Photos and Description

Total relaxation. Entertainment provided by Mother Nature.

*** NOVEMBER SPECIAL !! ***

$ 100.000 per night (3 night min.) from Nov. 1 through Nov. 26.

Cool, breezy, charming two bedroom/two bath home built three stories above the jungle floor. Can sleep 6 very comfortably by utilizing the inflatable beds we have provided. Wrap around deck, walk in pool with waterfall, huge rancho, wildlife galore, gorgeous garden with papaya, mango and citrus trees. The most relaxed and interesting place you will ever stay in Costa Rica. Amenities include cable TV, Internet, a/c (if needed), complete kitchen with all appliances, dishes and cooking utensils, linens and towels, jacuzzi tub and indoor shower, two outdoor showers. I have many photos to send and detailed information about the house and all the activities offered in our little town of Uvita, which is a beautiful 3.5 hr. drive from San Jose, down the Pacific coastline. The house is 1300 feet above sea level, overlooking the ocean and set in the rain forest. Two species of monkeys, incredible birds (including toucans and macaws), Coati mundi, kinkajous, jaguarundis and sloths are just a few of the animals that have been observed on the property. The deck provides a 300 degree view of the jungle and the Pacific ocean, and you will probably want to spend most of your time there, perched 3 stories above the rain forest floor.

Tours in the area include an amazing ATV company that takes you on a 25 mile ride high in the mountains (over 3000 ft.) and a visit to a 300 ft. waterfall...one of the top two best zip lines in the country that also offers a Tarzan swing and a Superman swing, both amazing...snorkel and whale watching tours out to Cano Island, which you can see from our house...bicycle tours....deep sea fishing...surf lessons....hiking...repelling....kayak tours and so many more activities. You are just two miles from the famous Bahia Ballena beach, also known as the Whales Tail...look it up on Google images. There are many, many beaches to access in the area. The town of Dominical, known as one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica is just 15 miles from our house. Please email me and I will send a wealth of information and lots more photos about the house and all the features of this part of Costa Rica.

* Due to the height of the deck and the limited railings, we DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN at this property. We define 'children' as those people who are 18 yrs. old and under. You are escorted up to the house upon arrival in Uvita. If there are children in your party, our manager will have to refuse access. We only have this rule for the safety of people who would be vulnerable to accidents. Thanks so much for understanding.

About Frannie and Gabe Volinsky

We are Frannie & Gabe from Wimberley, Texas. We built our little jungle nest in 2008, thinking we were ready to retire here, but as you know, LIFE sometimes gets in the way of your plans. So now, until we can truly call this place home, we would love to share it with you! We didn't build a fancy house...we wanted a rustic, cabin, Tico feel to it. There are many prettier, more luxurious houses than ours to rent, but not many that are more fun! The house is 1300 feet above sea level, and only a little more than a mile from downtown Uvita. The road is rugged and goes straight up. But the drive up is well worth it.

Frannie and Gabe Volinsky purchased this house in 2007

Incredible Canopy Living

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the House of Windows for an extended period of time and truly enjoyed it. The house is nestled in the canopy of the Costa Rican jungle. You can sit on the large wrap-around deck and watch various animals, including howler and white-faced capuchin monkeys and tayras, forage in the trees at eye level. Various birds make daily visits. You will see more toucans and aracaris then you could ever hope to see in a lifetime. At night, depending on the time of year, the resident owl hoots and catches insects just a few meters off the deck. The owners are helpful and accommodating. You can either spend time relaxing at the house or doing any number adventurous activities in the Uvita/Costa Ballena area.

Awsome house

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this beautiful house. The owners were very helpful with local recommendations and travel tips. The accommodations, property and pool were luxurious, clean and very comfortable. The mountain view is spectacular. If you want to get away to a tree house in the jungle, this one is for you! You will have plenty of privacy with the exception of birds and monkeys. We brought my 80 year old mother and everyone had a blast. There is so much to see and do, we can't wait to go back again!
