Uvita house description

Casa Miramar is a very private, comfortable Costa Rican getaway located a cool 800 feet above the Pacific Ocean, directly above the Whale's Tail in the Marino Ballena National Park and the thriving town of Uvita. This spacious home sleeps five comfortably in two bedrooms (one with a king bed, the other with a queen and a single), and the living room has a queen-sized sofa bed that can sleep two more. The property also offers a secluded cottage/casita which has one bedroom with a full bed, one bathroom with an outdoor solar shower, a small but well-equipped kitchen, and large veranda with an incredible view. Just a brief walk between the two, both the casa and the casita provide wonderful privacy.

Other than the weekly visit of the gardener and housekeeper (included in rates) you have utter peace to lull away the days in your veranda hammock enjoying the stunning ocean and mountain/valley views, or dip in the inviting pool in sublime privacy. The Bali shade hut is excellent for reading, napping, or gazing at the hypnotic scenery. Casa Miramar is a birdwatcher's paradise and you'll be amazed as large birds catch the draft spirals and soar overhead. Resident hawks, falcons, and toucans perch in nearby trees and you may see a Morpho butterfly skip along the garden flowers. Mornings are filled with birdsong as you enjoy your first cup of coffee and those same birds will serenade you during spectacular sunsets. Though Casa Miramar is not on a 'monkey highway', you will hear the howlers in the distance and occasionally see the white faced monkeys in the area. It's not unusual to encounter sloths and other small animals in the neighborhood.

For those needing technology, Casa Miramar is equipped with wifi and a pay-as-you-go mobile phone. There is a small flat-screen television hooked to the house's library of movies, television series, and music for rare moments spent inside.

Located along the paved Costanera Highway, Uvita is 20km south of the colorful surfer town of Dominical and 16km north of restaurant-filled Ojochal. Casa Miramar is a perfect headquarters for jumping to the Osa Peninsula by sea or by road, and for exploring points north or inland. You'll find that friendly Uvita is a thriving village with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Choose from a variety of sports and sightseeing tours including a 'not to miss' horseback tour through the jungle to a waterfall followed by a gallop along the ocean.

Uvita has both a rustic feel and all the necessary modern conveniences. Still very much a village, you'll find a good variety at the two main grocery stores, a gas station, banks, a medical and dental clinic, a weekly farmers market, and plenty of wifi - all mixed with the sight of locals riding on horseback down the street. There is a wide variety of restaurants in the area, ranging from fabulous gourmet to delicious roadside ceviche. Locals and expats mingle comfortably in a friendly atmosphere that also features tour guide services, unspoiled beaches, and much more.

Casa Miramar's unbeatable views and privacy come thanks to its mountainside setting so it should be noted that like many places in Costa Rica, a 4x4 vehicle is required to navigate an unpaved road that can be steep and twisty at times.

                          The town of Uvita is located along 'Costa Ballena', on the Pacific Coast south of Quepos and north of Golfito. Playa Uvita is the home of Costa Rica's only marine sanctuary, Ballena Marine National Park. The park is named for the whales that are often sighted close to shore. From Casa Miramar you can see the spit of land that's formed at low tide and composes the perfect outline of a whale's tail. Convenient to Uvita you can easily get to canopy tours, miles of beautiful beaches, river rafting, waterfalls, rain forest, horseback riding along the ocean and so much more - or, just enjoy the awesome ocean/river/mountain view from right where you are - Casa Miramar. Especially notable is the great surfing just minutes away. Also available are nearby language schools for those wanting a bit more from their cultural experience.
