About the property

Two-bedroom House with 2 terraces, jacuzzi, big garden,veranda; by beach/forest

Casa Mediterranea with big garden near beach and forest is located 800 meters from the Ballena National Park in Playa Uvita, travel can be done on foot/bicycle/car, where you can enjoy an exceptional landscape. You can hear the melody of the ocean and noises of various tropical animals while enjoying the house and the garden (no thorough pathway to beach). There are several beach entrances, the closest one is a 800 m. There is an additional of $10 charge for each pet per night please.

For travellers who are looking for something more than budget, Uvita Beach House is the place!

Private and comfortable for two to six guests, this brand new Casa 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, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves (No thorough pathway)

The two-bedroom house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed 5 ceiling fans and three wall mounted remote controlled Fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion. All open areas of the house has screens against unwanted animals.

The master bedroom with queen sized bed, A/C, garden view is connected to the second "private/romantic" porch which contains a chaise long, hammock, chairs and an outside bathtub with shower for relaxing/reading/listening to the tropical sounds/having red wine. The second bedroom has A/C and two single beds. A living room sofa-bed is available for 5th and 6th guest.

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 1 thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV and video library on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa and armchair.

The bathroom 1 with shower is bright and supplied with hot water system. A third (exterior) shower is in the back of the house. There is a security safe for valuables.

The spacious external porch 1 offers hammock and chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws!

The new 1000 m2 garden is equipped with a Jacuzzi and a Veranda (12 can sit). The parking place for 4 cars is private and lightened at night.

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 and forest!

No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With this 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!

Excellent Home in an excellent Town

  • 5 of 5

A new, clean and cute wooden house with full amenities. Its garden is like a miniature national park where you can find all kinds of trees, flowers and birds. The deck/porch, outside bar, Jacuzzi, outside tub/showers, and garden canopy are awesome just awesome places to spend times. More importantly it is in a good driving distance to many beautiful national parks and beaches...More importantly, the manager is an easily reachable person via phone/email/facebook/whatsapp, and a great source for things to do in Costa Rica...

Pretty location near beach and amenities

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, clean house near to small town and beautiful beach. Well equipped for cooking but restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. Further amenities a 1.5 mile walk along the main road, which is where the town is. Nice, large garden with tub which was useful for cooling down as it was very hot in January. Air conditioning in bedroom worked but made room too cold and we couldn't figure out how to get it to maintain a constant comfortable temperature so had to keep turning it on and off in the night. Lots of pretty birds in the garden and field next door. Loved the sound of the monkeys but didn't see any. Lovely walk to the Whales Tale beach 10 minutes away and great place to watch the sun set. Local people lovely and very helpful.

Place to stay in Uvita!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, spacious and very clean. It is centrally located in Uvita and the garden is just spectacular. The house is easy to find on google maps/Waze for directions. Honestly, the pictures online don't do it justice, the property is much bigger than the pictures give it credit. The house has wifi, AC units in each room, fans and a fully stocked kitchen. We woke up to the sounds of birds in the morning and enjoyed a glass of wine in the Jacuzzi in the afternoon, right around sunset. We were able to spot some monkeys and humming birds right outside of the gate, which was a very pleasant surprise. The owner gave us some tips of places to visit or restaurants to go to in the area and that advice much appreciated. There were even some beach towels in the closet we were able to use, something most rentals do not offer! We were only 2 people but this place could easily fit 4 people as it has 2 bedrooms. Uvita is a lovely town with a nice long beach and the house is just minutes away from all the attractions. This is the place to stay if you ever visit Uvita!

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.

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.
