Casita Donna Marie is located 1,000 feet above Ballena National Park with incredible unobstructed views of the ocean, the Pacific coastline, Uvita valley and the tropical jungle. Enjoy relaxing on the deck or take a dip in your private pool while enjoying the sounds and vistas that surround you. The pool has gradual steps to a sitting bench for easy entry/exit and for a variety of spots for sipping your favorite drink. The casita is currently the only residence on the property giving you complete privacy. Wildlife abounds around the property, and from the deck there have been frequent spotting’s of white face monkeys, howler monkeys, parrots, toucans and many… many varieties of exotic birds. The monkey’s migration path is in trees along the property line. Even though you are above the ocean you can see and hear the waves crashing on the beach. Your fantastic view also includes Cano Island and the three sisters (a rock formation in the Ballena National Park). At night the vista changes to a wonderful view of the lights in the valley below, as well as the lights from the main village of Uvita.
Casita Donna Marie is located in a private community with many very nice homes and you will even pass by “Kura Design Villa”, a five star villa located only a few hundred yards from the property. The casita is near the end of a dead end road, currently the last residence on this road which gives you plenty of privacy. The palm lined driveway and main home building site is over 100 yards long, giving you plenty of area on the property to walk around to enjoy the views. The public road is barely traveled giving you another great place to walk. The floor plan is simple, very open to the outdoors and lots of windows to enjoy your fantastic views. There is not a need for air conditioning due to the breezes coming up the valley from the ocean during the day and there are mountain downdrafts keeping you cool at night! There is plenty of natural ventilation to accommodate the breezes.
As in many communities in Costa Rica the road to Casita Donna Marie requires a 4x4 vehicle. Driving just about anywhere in CR is a nature adventure and the road up is no exception. You go past two waterfalls through the jungle while having ocean views that will take your breath away. Trina, our property manager will meet you upon arrival at the bottom of the mountain to lead you up on your first trip.

My wife and I are retired, although my wife is currently doing some consulting work. We live in New Smyrna Beach Florida but we spend the winters in Steamboat Springs Colorado for the ski season. Now that the casita is built we will likely spend two to four months in Costa Rica each year.
We first visited Jaco Costa Rica in 2002 with both of our sons to enjoy a surfing trip. We all fell in love with Costa Rica and decided the following year to start looking for property. We had heard that the southern Pacific coastline is where the mountains meet the ocean and the vegetation was dense and green. We probably looked at some 30 pieces of property from Matapalo to the north down to Ventanas to the south. When our realtor drove us up to this property the family looked at each other and we knew for certain this is where we wanted to be.
The biggest appeal was the open unobstructed view we would have from anywhere on the property. The driveway is about 100 yards to the main building site and the view is open and beautiful; ocean, coastline, valley & jungle and no possibility of someone building in front of us.
