I spent a week here with my parents at the end of January 2012. The villa is very well positioned with amazing views of the ocean. The facilities are excellent with some lovely design features. The beautiful garden allowed lots of spotting of birds and other wildlife, and it is close enough to the forests to be able to hear the howler monkeys in the distance at dawn and dusk. The sunsets were spectacular, I have some amazing photos.
The pool is just outstanding, and we spent many an hour enjoying the view from the pool. We enjoyed many meals at the villa, with family who were staying close by, and the kitchen had every gadget you should need.
The villa is in the hills above Uvita, high enough to allow the panoramic views, but with a road suitable for an ordinary car.
The owner, Yves was very helpful and nearby if we needed him. The property is immaculate and the photos on this site are a good impression, the only thing that is not an accurate photo is the view, it is too panoramic and amazing to be represented!
Uvita has an excellent little bakery (recommend the empanadas ) also try the lemon and ginger marmalade on sale in the local produce market on saturdays, the creperie for brunch and we had some great pizza at the bottom of the road as well. There are supermarkets with a good range too.
In summary I recommend this villa for adults (we had children visiting only) to chill out, enjoy the view and you will not want to leave. We enjoyed a day on the whales tale and another on a boat trip, but mostly enjoyed the pool and view.
