Property description

The Costa Ballena, or Whale's Coast, is one of the coolest spots in Costa Rica. This beautiful home features the best view of the Whale's Tail in the Southern Zone and enjoys continuous fresh breezes and no biting insects. In addition to the awe-inspiring view, the benefits of being up in the mountains include a microclimate that is about 10 degrees cooler than in town and on the beach. You will be serenaded daily by a wide variety of birds, monkeys and rainforest critters. Open the doors wide and enjoy indoor/ outdoor living with the best view of the Whale's Tail!

Situated 10 minutes above Uvita, this 3000 sf home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a pool, large deck and a luxurious outdoor shower. 4 new designer chaise lounges were added in November 2015! Enjoy the best view in the world while taking an outdoor shower by the pool! The home comes fully furnished with a full kitchen, laundry, spring-fed, filtered water and privacy like no other.

Amenities include: 4MB WiFi Internet, 40" Samsung TV with AppleTV, whole house music system with USB port, indoor and outdoor dining areas.

Prepaid cell phone provided for local calls.

A new VOIP phone with unlimited FREE calls to the USA is also available for your stay! (forward your phones to this line!)

Your concierge Trina will meet you in town and escort you to the home for your welcome tour. Trina and her husband Don speak English and will be available to show you how to get to the house and help answer any questions. They can also assist to bring supplies, book tours, etc.

Chefs are available to prepare personalized meals upon request for an additional charge. In-room massage therapy can be coordinated through the property manager.

There are a wide array of fun tour activities and beaches all within a 20-minute drive. There is an amazing waterfall with a bar and restaurant just 5 minutes down the road. We have all kinds of beaches, from beginner to expert surf beaches, cave beaches, and kid-friendly beaches all within a short drive.

The kitchen was newly remodeled in May 2013. You'll love the new granite counter-tops and farm house sink! The washing machine, fridge, and dishwasher were just replaced in October 2014. A new clothes dryer was added in October 2015. A new Trex Yoga deck was installed November 2014. We've upgraded the interior and bed linens as of September 2015 as well!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We fell in love with Costa Rica and, specifically, the Ballena coast, when we came here to marry in 2013. We had a spectacular view of the Whale's Tail as our backdrop! When we first came to Casa Cola Ballena ourselves we were awestruck, and set on a path to call it our new home! We are honored that Kevin and Mary, who lovingly built this gorgeous home, have shared this gem for our family's turn at enjoying the magic of the view, the ambiance of the jungle, and the amazing community that makes it all so special. We look forward to sharing our home with you so that you can experience the ultimate in Costa Rica living.

Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
For those of you who have stayed at Casa Cola Ballena in the past, you'll be delighted with the upgrades we have brought to our new home! The home itself, the nature that surrounds, and the incredible views remain awesome! We have upgraded all the bed linens to a Tommy Bahama-esq look, and upgraded the "creature comforts" such as Netflix streaming and internet connectivity in the event you need to stay better connected with your home base while escaping in the jungle!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Luxury Jungle Living....This house provides a great way to be in an adventurous area with all the fun things to do in the rainforest and at the beach. After a long hard day of surfing, ziplining, ATV's, fishing, or horses, there is nothing better than getting up to the house, where it is a little cooler, jumping in the pool, and living in luxury in the Jungle. It's like getting away from it all, but still coming home to a well appointed home with all the modern amenities.
