Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, outdoor shower, sleeps 6

Nestled atop a cloistered ridge, Villa Tres Ninas welcomes its guests with fabulous views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding mountains hugging the coast of Costa Rica’s celebrated southern zone. Directly across from Hermosa Beach, a 6 minute drive, and overlooking the famous “Whale’s Tail” reef in Ballena National Park, guests enjoy both privacy and the many outdoor activities available in one of the most biodiversity-rich areas of the world. The property is surrounded by nature with its wonders, providing a sense of privacy and tranquility. Contrasting comparable views requiring a fifteen or twenty minute trek over dubious roadways, Villa Tres Ninas is a quick three minute ride up the well maintained Jardines del Morete road. The villa’s main entrance features a secure, remote controlled gate leading to the brick lined drive and private portico and carport.

Villa Tres Ninas is beautifully furnished, fully equipped and offers a full spectrum of concierge services. Our knowledgeable concierge can arrange everything you might want and need - restaurant reservations, meals at the house, various activities, massage and much more.

....more searching for paradise...: While contemporary in design, the villa provides a sense of nature’s privacy with lush foliage, and the natural stones and hardwoods that adorn the villa. Slate floors, teak stairs and doors coupled with natural hues and colors afford a calm and grounded atmosphere. While incorporating a modern theme and every convenience, the rainforest and environment of the southern Costa Rican Pacific coast compliment this beautiful setting. As do the hand crafted, custom furnishings and artwork that have been imported from Bali. The result is a blend of casual elegance and comfortable luxury.

....the search for paradise continues....: Wrap-around coral stone decks are found on both the upper and lower levels of the villa provide open and majestic vistas of the surrounding environment and the expansive Pacific. On the horizon, beyond the crashing surf visible on the Whale’s Tail lies Cano Island…a marine treasure ideal for exciting day trips of snorkeling, whale watching and adventure. Each window of the villa deliberately has Cano Island as its focal point. Villa Tres Ninas’ tropical contemporary construction fits perfectly into its fabulous natural setting as a mountain/beach retreat of wonderful beauty and comfortable scale. The liberating 180-degree vista provides fantastic views of the sunset, stars and exotic local flora and fauna, including toucans, hawks, coatis and howler monkeys. A five minute drive provides access to local food shopping, banks and eateries in Uvita. last, paradise found!: Ten minutes in either direction along the coastal highway places you in Dominical and Ojachal, providing easy access to eclectic restaurants, shops and local entertainment. The concierge will be happy to arrange a broad array of unique activities...from canopy zip line adventures, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing excursions, surfing, ATV activities/tours, horseback riding and more. Dining in the area is diverse and eclectic and our concierge will provide any and all assistance in finding the best locations. Daily house keeping is always provided for guest comfort and ease. Twenty four hour emergency services are available in the unlikely event a need should arise. On the grounds of the villa, other concierge services can be coordinated including massages, yoga sessions and the services of a chef to prepare special events or meals.

There is a gym in Uvita as well as many different places to practice yoga. The best and closest yoga studio is at the Vista Ballena hotel just up the road from the villa. They have yoga every morning at 9 am in a fantastic studio with a gentle breeze and great views. Impossible not to enjoy!

About Regina & Nils

Regina and Nils - proud owners of VILLA TRES NIÑAS

Our names are Nils Edelstam and Regina Nilsson. We live in Stockholm, Sweden. Nils is a physician, and Regina is a sales executive in the IT industry. We have 4 grown children who all live in Sweden. Three of them are girls, the "Tres Ninas" - and we named the bedrooms after them.

We came to Costa Rica for vacation in early 2017 and fell in love with the country. On the last days of our vacation, we decided that we want to spend more time in CR and to own a property there. We looked at a number of houses in the area, and fell in love with Villa Tres Ninas.

We are thrilled with our new villa and hope that our guests will enjoy their stay and come back time after time!

Pura Vida!

Regina & Nils purchased this villa in 2017

Why Regina & Nils chose Puntarenas

We are happy to rent our villa to guests who are locals or visiting Costa Rica as everyone who stays here experiences the magical beauty, peace, and calming effect of this enchanting country. For the adventuresome, there are plenty of fun activities as well. Please reach out if you have any questions or just want to share your experiences with us and our friends.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with the house while visiting Costa Rica for the first time. The house is gorgeous and beautifully furnished. The views on all sides are breath-taking. It is very quiet and relaxing, despite it being only a short drive from the main road and the beach. It doesn't get better than that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I just noticed the listing to this house in Uvita, Costa Rica and it wasn't on this site before. We stayed there in June. When we opened the front door with the concierge, we knew we were in a great place...the ocean view through the house from the front door just set the tone. We like to eat in and the kitchen was perfect for cooking and staying in and lots of attention to details all over the house. Morning coffee in bed with the big ocean view was a great time of day and the kids loved the house and the day trips that were scheduled for us. Our vacation was a winner at this villa.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 adults (3 couples) we each had our own bedroom with its own bathroom, and each room felt like the only room in the house when you were in it, not that we spent much time in our rooms. When we were home we were generally in the kitchen or by the pool. The pool was larger than most in the area which was nice. We were able to play some pool games, swim (short) laps, lounge around and relax. Raul was there to meet us when we got in later in the evening and showed us the way up to the house (the road was mostly paved which is unusal for the area), gave us a quick tour to show us how everything worked and where things were, and he checked in once or twice thru the week to make sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen had a few basics like salt pepper some oils and seasonings to cook with, the only thing missing was butter and coffee. There are 2 or 3 grocery stores not very far away where we purchased anything we needed to make some food for the week. There are a lot of beaches and things to do within a relatively short driving distance from the house. We would absolutely return the next time we travel to the area!

Great Experience!!! A ++++++++++++++++++++++

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience for us. Raul the concierge catered to our every need and want. He was very attentive, and without him we would have been lost. He went above an beyond our expectations and truly made this a wonderful trip. The personal chef we hired for dinner was great and provided such a wonderful menu with several things to choose from. The villa is absolutely breathtaking, and the pictures do not fully depict how impeccable it truly is!!! Definitely a must see!

Luxurious stay with magical views

  • 5 of 5

The house is luxurious and beautiful. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The mountain and ocean view is breathtaking. Perfect for relaxing after our very adventurous days of hiking, snorkeling, riding ATV's, jumping from waterfalls, visiting the beach... Loved the lap pool! The boys were happy with the DVD collection. Watching movies was a nice way to end our days.

Alex, the concierge, was great. He set us up on the best snorkeling excursion ever! Much more than snorkeling. We also visited two private jungle islands with wild macaws and anteaters and saw crocs and monkeys on the river portion of the tour.

Although a bit nervous about mountain driving I felt comfortable on the paved roads and the drive leading up to the house.

Our family had the time of our lives!

Staying at Villa Tres Ninas was a real pleasure for our family. I typically view nearly EVERY vacation home in Costa Rica as I research our trips, and we were very pleased with our choice of this contemporary home. We chose it for the Dominical/Uvita area, which was the perfect combo of great amenities and activities while still feeling a bit off the radar. We chose it for the modern, luxurious design that was still relaxing and laid back. We loved the ocean views throughout the house, and the way the home opened up to the outside pool area, where our two girls practically lived. Killer kitchen. Best shower in Costa Rica in the MBR!

Dealing with the owner and the concierge was very easy and helpful, we felt very taken care of. We split our trip between Uvita and the Osa on this trip, which was great. But I'd easily stay in this home for the entire vacation next time, the house and the local area are so worth a nice extended stay. Highly recommended.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Each day offered a new discovery! This home was perfect for our family of multiple ages & on our first trip to Costa Rica for my daughter's wedding. She & her husband love to surf & had discovered the laid back beach vibe area of Dominical nearby several years ago. I wasnt sure what to expect but did a lot of research online for our accomodations & this home delivered & exceeded every expectation!

There is so much to do & see here....a tropical paradise! But one could just spend the entire week enjoying the breathtaking ocean view & lounging around the pool of this lovely home, ....watching the toucans and butterflies! I can only imagine what whale & dolphin season would be like here. It was even better than the photos & the owners are SO nice & accomodating! With the concierge service, it felt like a 5 star hotel and it even had a lovely bar/restaurant within a short walk & offering more panoramic views! We ended up having the rehearsal dinner there with an excellent new chef! We enjoyed the in-home chef service as well,for a wonderful Mother's Day dinner. Best massages ever were a special treat. We really appreciated Alex's attentiveness & in booking snorkle excursions & a local salon for wedding day! He offered recommendations on beaches & local restaurants time saving...he even called on the Uvita "Saturday market" for gift shopping!

We packed in surfing, paddleboarding, waterfall hikes & snorkeling & just ran out of time. But we also enjoyed daily swims in the lovely pool, card games at the dining table, checking in with U.S news on the t.v, a few favorite family movies with the large CD selection of course the wifi convenience. This home offered contemporary elegance, with quality, tasteful decor & furnishings. It was very comfortable for all, even my elderly parents. The owners have thought through all the little details. The only negative was hard to leave!

Owner's Response: Hola Nancy, Thank you so much for your review. It was our pleasure assisting you and we are very grateful that you selected Villa Tres Ninas for your stay! It has been wonderful getting to know you and we hope you decide to come back again. Alex enjoyed helping you and we are so happy that your experiences were so positive. Costa Ballena and Uvita in particular are still not very well known but everyone who finds their way to this part of the country really falls in love with it. We have toured the country and this is truly the best location. All our best and we hope to welcome you to Villa Tres Ninas again. Jules and Glen

Excelente villa en una zona impactante!

  • 5 of 5

La villa está en excelentes condiciones, desde las recámaras, la cocina, el patio y la alberca, todo perfectamente bien. La villa se encuentra en una zona natural, al borde de la selva por lo que estarás en un ambiente tranquilo, relajado, apartado del ruido de la ciudad, pero tienes restaurantes y tiendas de autoservicio a menos de 5 minutos de distancia así como muchas playas. Totalmente recomendable para quien busca salir de la rutina y pasar un momento de tranquilidad.
