Overview

Uvita House Rental Photos and Description

Total relaxation. Entertainment provided by Mother Nature.

***** PLEASE READ FIRST *****

Due to the height of the house and deck sitting 2 and 3 stories above the jungle floor, we DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN to stay in this home. We define 'children' as anyone under 18 years old. 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.

House description:

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.

After reading our entire listing and viewing the photos, 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. We will partner with you in finding all the tours, excursions and adventures that are tailored for your particular style. We will stay in touch with you from the time you book with us, all the way until you check out of the house, answering any questions you might have.

Looking forward to getting to know you and meeting your needs for the vacation of your dreams.

About Frannie and Gabe

We are Frannie & Gabe from deep in the heart of 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 purchased this house in 2007

Why Frannie and Gabe chose Uvita

A private nature inspired getaway for ADULTS.

A perfect space for two couples.

1 week in this spacious jungle house on 4 acres of privacy, with private pool, full amenities and a gorgeous view would cost each couple $600.00 each per week or $85.00 per night per couple.

We think this is one of the best deals in the Uvita area.

What makes this house unique

Completely private 4 acre property overlooking the Pacific Ocean, including a view of Cano Island.

Dream House for a Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Just stayed at the House of Windows for Christmas with my boyfriend, and it was absolutely fabulous! The house is perfectly located in the middle of the jungle, with TOTAL privacy! It's about a 10 to 15 minute ride up the mountain from the main road. Even the drive up had impressive views! Very bumpy and rugged, so you'll definitely need to rent a 4x4, but it was an exciting drive. We even filmed it because we got such a kick out of it. And it's such a cool house - with the second story kind of like a loft, everything is totally open. We would leave all the windows open at night and feel the breeze travel through the house, and listen to the jungle. I've never heard so many birds in my life! Some of them sounded like cartoon characters! We would leave to explore the town a bit (which really is SO cool, but that's a different review...) but each time we did we just wanted to get back to the pool. The most BEAUTIFUL pool I've ever been in. Not too big but perfect for the 2 of us. All you really need. A lovely waterfall that turned on in the morning, and just the most perfect view of the ocean and jungle canopy. I would go swimming every morning since I would get so hot in the kitchen after making breakfast. Oh yes, and full kitchen was a definite plus!! We cooked a lot there. 2 bathrooms - one on each floor - was very convenient as well. Probably the best part of the house were the decks! A wrap around deck on the main floor, and one on the second floor as well. We would each post up in a different spot with a pair of binoculars and watch for animals - we saw toucans, monkeys, so many butterflies, and many more! I could really go on forever, but you'll just have to see for yourself!! Can't wait to go back!

And the owners were so wonderful! Frannie was always available from the moment I booked the house until the very end. My boyfriend and I are not experienced travelers at all, but she helped answer our questions about everything, even unrelated to the house! I probably asked her a million questions, and she was always so great!!

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!
