Uvita house description

Bambu is situated in the community of Bejuco, Uvita. The property has a plethora of plant life from a variety of fruit trees to exotic palms. Toucans, Aricaris and hummingbirds visit and feast on the surrounding trees providing constant entertainment. Outstanding views of the beaches of Ballena Marine Park, the Whale’s Tail and Costa Rica's Pacific coastline.

This unique property sits an elevation of 1100 ft (300 meters). Featuring structural bamboo vaulted ceilings, designed with air-flow in mind. No need for A/C as the updrafts keep the house cool and fresh during the day and mountain downdrafts keeping you cool at night!

A full kitchen with BBQ, 2 bathrooms, living area, laundry and covered patio. Exotic hardwoods throughout. The covered patio will become your favorite lounge as songbirds and tropical birds visit in the trees that surround.

The kitchen and BBQ provides you with all the options to create a perfect meal from your recent fish catch and organic produce purchased from the local market.

A spacious bedroom with King size bed and incredible ocean views...Yes...Even while laying in bed you can take in an unobstructed view of the Whale's Tail and listen to the distant surf! There’s a walk-in closet with a safe to assure you peace of mind. Patio doors lead you to a private terrace, where you can enjoy a read of your favourite vacation novel or enjoy a cold beer while watching the sunset.

If you are looking for a second bedroom – we can offer you the cabina with a queen size bed, kitchenette and bathroom. This provides you options if traveling with friends or older children. See the rates below. We have more photos and details we can forward you.

As Uvita is located in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica, known for it’s rainforests and jungle terrain, you may encounter a rain shower or thunderstorm outside of the dry season. With this in mind, the living area has a comfortable sectional couch, books and DVD’s to keep you entertained while waiting out a cleansing rain shower.

Access to this property is along a beautiful jungle road. (It does have a couple of steep sections to it and requires an SUV or 4WD. Ask us about a 20% discount on vehicle rentals that we can arrange for our guests.) Occasional sightings of sloths, Capuchan monkeys, Howler monkeys, jagarundi's, toucans, aricari's and parrots can be taken in along the drive to the house - bound to enhance your Costa Rican adventure!

There is much to do in and around Uvita - Visit Ballena Marine Park and take a walk out to the Whale's Tail during low tide. Plan a horseback ride on the beach and to local waterfalls with La Merced. Charter a fishing boat for some of the most amazing off shore fishing you will ever experience! Rent an ATV and tour waterfalls and though the jungle. Take a boat trip to the Corcovado National Park in the Osa. Zipline, canopy walks and birdwatching tours. Oh and don't forget the surfing! Take in the skills of the locals at Playa Hermosa or Playa Dominical at sunset, then head out for a delicious dinner at one of many of the fabulous restaurants in our area.

Put on your flip-flops and head to the beach. Boogie boards, beach chairs and a cooler in hand.

If you are looking for a vacation rental in Uvita - you have found it!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                  The Southern Zone is the most bio-diverse region, with the mountains meeting the sea. Not many places in the world can boast this claim! The locals, the wildlife, the beauty of Ballena Marine Park and the jungle make Uvita a very unique region of Costa Rica. The Southern Zone offers the Costa Rica we first saw back in 1993, with protected beaches and no resort hotels.
