Uvita House Rental Photos and Description

Two-bedroom House with terrace, jacuzzi, big garden,veranda; by beach/forest

For travellers who are looking for something more than budget, Costa Rica Holiday Home (also called Casa Mediterranea) is the place! This house is not on the beach, it is near the beach and the National Park, where the ocean meets the rainforest in the town of Uvita.The house is private and comfortable for four to six guests, this brand new two-bedroom house in a 1000 m2 garden with jacuzzi and veranda is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia. Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean (no ocean view), provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves. The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling and wall mounted remote controlled fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room has a sofa-bed for 5th and 6th guest if needed. All open areas are covered by screens to stop undesired animals. The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with European tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV. The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.The spacious external porch offers a table with 6-8 chairs to enjoy the sound of the ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock at the veranda and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws! The veranda sits up to 12 persons.The external new garden is equipped with a BBQ area and outdoor shower. The parking place is private.No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organising mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from ocean melody! No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore. With Casa Mediterranea you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimise your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

Excelente fin de semana!

  • 5 of 5

Salir de la ciudad y encontrar un espacio para enamorarte de la naturaleza y el silencio, pero a la vez tan cerca de todo... no es fácil! Casa Mediterránea es la mezcla perfecta! Una casa muy bien acondicionada con dos cuartos, uno con dos camas individuales y otro con una cama matrimonial, y todas las comodidades, aire acondicionado, un baño completo, refri, cocina y todos los utencilios para cocinar... si quiere cocinar, sino, muchas opciones de restaurantes sencillos o no para todos los presupuestos en las cercanías. Las ventanas tienen cedazos para evitar los mosquitos, pero disfrutar la brisa. Tiene un estilo de cabaña con detalles en madera y detallitos de decoración que lo hacen un lugar muy acogedor! Los espacios más abiertos tienen ventiladores. Tiene espacio para parquear el vehículo, hasta 3 carros. Es una zona tranquila y segura pero la propiedad cuenta con un portón de acceso que se puede mantener cerrado. Fácil acceso desde la carretera o la calle principal. Con un par de supermercados a menos de 1 km de distancia que tienen lo que pueda necesitar para abastecerse. Igual cuenta con TV con cable e internet en caso de que se requiera conexión con el mundo externo! Fue una refrescante experiencia desde todo punto de vista, sentarse en la terraza a escuchar las olas del mar! Porque aunque no está frente al mar, está a un manglar de distancia y se escucha fuerte su relajante vaivén! O que tal una copa de vino en el delicioso Jacuzzi al aire libre y rodeado de jardines muy bien cuidados, realmente se disfruta se los puedo asegurar! Bellísimas playas muy cerca Uvita, Ventanas, Dominical! Agradezco la limpieza del lugar y los utencilios, ropa de cama y paños muy limpios. Muchas Gracias por un fin de semana que me sacó de mi rutina diaria! Lo amé! Super recomendada!

Cozy quarters

  • 3 of 5

This Uvita home is located in a very quiet Tico community within walking distance to a few places, tho there were no directions left on how to reach anything, the beach being the biggy.

We felt relaxed at the home and sat on porch each evening. Tho the structure itself is newer, the interior could stand a few fixes and good cleaning. Kitchen counter by sink is stained, light fixtures filled with bugs, some ceiling fans not operating. Laundry hanging on porch and by front gate when we arrived. Lack of blankets for # of guests and we were even required to pay an additional amount pp/night!

Only one small futon for sitting of which one of the back cushions was missing and cover was hanging on clothesline. Hot tub was not ready upon arrival, had to request same. Garden hoses left strewn about in various locations in yard. Think a better management company is needed for this home.

The gardener and laundry/key pick up lady were very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the constructive comments. a) Normally people never need blankets since it never gets cool However there are plenty of blankets available upon request. b) My apologies for having laundry still hanging when you arrived. it looks bad. It was a very rainy time and the humidity was at it maximum. The drying process of the laundry is taking days. c) "Stained kitchen counter" - previous guest has bunt the wooden kitchen count by placing a hot pan on it. It will be a major structural change to be done in the near future. My apologies again. d) All fans are working fine. The can be operated by wall switch or by the hanging chain from the fan.The chain is to set the fan speed as well as the light independently. e) The house price is set for double occupancy. I think it is only fair to have a minimal increment for additional persons to up to 6 persons which makes the per person accommodation rate almost like a hostel rate. Thank you again.

this house is charming and has everything you could need, the housekeeper and gardener were so sweet and everything including the jacuzzi was clean and sparkling, such a cute town too, and beach spectacular, after being in the Osa it was nice to be in a place with choices of restaurants and shops, and the people everywhere are so kind and friendly, a safe and family kinda town, amazing boat trip into the mangroves, our 3 young boys, loved this place, the town, the beach, the surf, the house, the hot tub, and having a washing machine was so handy.

Entspannung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Als überarbeitete, allein erziehende Mutter, die Stress und Hektik einer norddeutschen Großstadt entfliehen wollte, war ich froh, direkt nach meiner Ankunft in Costa Rica dieses Juwel einer privaten Urlaubsresidenz zu beziehen. Für meinen ebenso begeisterten 9-jährigen Sohn und mich boten sich überwältigende Eindrücke von Natur: Intensive Farben von Himmel, Wasser und Pflanzen, dazu die Geräusche exotischer Vögel und Brüllaffen, und nicht zu vergessen, der weitläufige, manchmal menschenleere Traumstrand kaum 5 Minuten entfernt.

Im Haus ist an alles gedacht, von der geschmackvollen, bequemen Einrichtung bis zu allen notwendigen Haushaltsgeräten.

Ich kann nur jedem empfehlen, der aus Stress und Hektik unserer europäischen Zivilisation ganz schnell auf Entspannung umschalten möchte, hierher zu kommen. Vielen Dank an Ned, dass wir dieses wunderbare Haus sechs Tage lang genießen durften! Wird werden immer wieder gern hierher kommen. Sehriban und Renas

Beautiful little gem!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the little house! It has almost anything you can possibly need! Great location! The pictures are very accurate! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the internet: "Not reliable" its an understatement! We were there 5 days and it didn't work at all, not even 1 time in any of the devices that the 4 adults carried. As a native costarican I know for a fact that, even though the service in the area might not be great, there are other options that can be use that will be much better that a "Data card", such as the internet from the provider in the area "Claro". Also, it would make a big difference if another air conditioning unit is install at least in the main area, the heat was unbearable and only the people who slept in the master bedroom were able to get some sleep. Other than that the place is lovely!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and proposal. I will go to the Claro office and change the internet provider to see if it works better. I know it is important to have a decent internet speed. As for the additional A/C's: The house has open spaces to the air to pass through, in general to stay with the architecture of typical regional houses. In order to add additional A/C's we would need to change a lot of things so that the house is air tight. most guests commented to have the house as it is. Thank you.

Costa Ballena is where you can enjoy the radiant lush green of the mountains and jungle teaming up with the Pacific Ocean. Marina National Park named after the whales that come yearly for courting and calving , have abundant sea life, are ideal for snorkelling and watching unforgettable sunsets. All kinds of tours of adventure and discovery are nearby as well as places where you can relax and enjoy delicious food.

The town of Uvita is located next to a beautiful pristine white sandy beach that looks out onto sparkling pacific waters which are excellent for swimming and snorkeling.

Uvita beach and its immediate surroundings are abundant in tropical flora and fauna and it is a protected conservation area belonging to the nearby Marina Ballena National Park. This is home to beautiful species of humming birds, toucans, monkeys, parrots, iguanas and sloths. Between the months of July to January sea turtles arrive to lay their eggs.

The Marina Ballena National Park is the location of the famous whale tail coastal formation. Best accessed during low tide, this sand bar has acquired the shape of a whale's tale through natural erosion. Resident dolphins are easy to spot and Humpback whales pass through these Pacific waters between July and November and from December to March. Uvita is a charming village named after its adjacent river, enclosed by the Pacific Ocean and mountainous rainforest surroundings, buzzing with tropical wildlife. This is where jungle meets ocean.

Described by many as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, south-western Costa Rica has plenty of beautiful beaches and fantastic vistas. Of the many spectacular beaches found here, Playa Uvita is among the top six most stunning beaches in Costa Rica (Frommers). Located in the southern Puntarenas province between surfing hotspot Dominical (with plenty of laidback nightlife) and the relaxed village Ojochal (with great restaurants), Uvita is the perfect base for an unforgettable holiday.
