Uvita villa description

Villa Escondida
Hidden Villa

Above the resort town of Uvita, immersed in nature, tranquility and privacy sits a hidden jewel. This unusual Villa is here for any couple or individual who wishes to rejuvenate while enjoying the area’s almost unlimited pleasure and adventure. Tucked away in a tropical paradise, this Moroccan/Indian style Villa has the feel of a small palace. This exclusive Villa is luxurious, extremely comfortable and designed with exquisite attention to detail. Designed by us (the owners Paula and Marty) our focus was to create a place of beauty that would feel palatial and yet be cradled in the mountains and jungle, where one could experience 'living in art and natural beauty at the same time'.

The Villa is all handcrafted and great care went into creating interior windows and veranda arches, all uniquely designed with beautiful moldings. The mahogany Queen bed was also custom designed and hand carved. The bedroom floors are beautiful Teak wood, soft underfoot. The 18ft vaulted ceiling is crowned by an unusual dome which can be softly lit and is a pleasure to gaze at while lying in bed. The bathroom is spacious and mostly stone and has an exotic ancient feel. While the bedroom and bathroom are comfortably screened in the veranda (living room and gourmet kitchen) are open air yet covered and protected from rain. The Villa has several multicolored stained glass Moroccan lamps and candles enhancing the already serene and romantic ambiance. The veranda flooring is imported porcelain tile, the kitchen has hand painted wall tiles and counters of of Costa Rican quartz stone. Both overlook your personal 51ft saltwater pool which is covered with see through fabric so that you are always protected from harsh sun's rays but can see sky and trees clearly. The pool is tiled with Italian imported glass tiles and is both beautiful to look at and delightful to enjoy. It can be lit for an evening swim under the stars. The water is non chemical (saltwater) and one does not feel the salt. It feels clean, fresh and gentle.

As you enter this private reserve you are stepping into a world of natural beauty where your awareness shifts as your senses are delighted and calmed by the extraordinary beauty in which you will be living.

This 60 acre private property has abundant wild life and hundreds of flowering plants and fruit and palm trees and overlooks the largest marine preserve in Central America, Cano Island, and The Whale's Tail reef (the third largest in the world). Included are hiking trails leading to stunning Pacific Ocean views and resting areas where you can stop to enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun set.

The villa is nestled in the midst of a garden of tropical flowers, bamboos and sculptures and overlooks your personal 51 foot saltwater pool, the Uvita River Valley, and the Talamanca Mountains beyond. You awake each morning to the sounds of Howler Monkeys and numerous of types of tropical birds, (yet comfortably screened in), and relax in the evenings to the surf's far off gentle rhythms.

The Hidden Villa is luxury glamping at it's very best!





Only we, Marty and Paula share this 60 acre property with you. We are available to help you arrange anything you need during your stay. Although comfortably out of sight or sound they can always be reached by your provided walkie talkie.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: Fourteen years ago we took our first trip together to Costa Rica and fell deeply in love with the country. Making our way to the coastal village of Uvita, where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean, we found the beauty of the country rivaled only by the beauty of the Tico people. We felt that we had 'come home' to a place where the inter-connectedness of true community, and the ease and opennes that radiates from the people is present in every interaction. Four years ago Paula designed the Villa we now offer to you. It was a true labor of love and we hope you have the opportunity to enjoy it and all the surrounding beauty. It is truly a tranquil paradise with so many wonderful things to see and do.

                          Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                          We found the people and the stunning beauty of the area impossible to resist. Our property sits 600 feet above the town of Uvita, amidst the surrounding mountains providing you with total seclusion yet only 7 minutes to town, 8 minutes to beaches and all amenities.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          If you decide to join us here you will enjoy total peace and quiet as well as amazing beauty, both of the Villa and the surronding area. The 51ft saltwater pool perfect for lap swimming, floating, water jogging. Both the Villa and the pool are custom designed and inspired by Indian and Morrocan style.
