We have snorkeling and scuba, waterfall repelling, golf, fishing, whale and dolphin watching, mountain bike trails beginning in 2012, Corcovado National Park and Ballena Marine Park, horseback riding, quad tours, yoga and pilates, mountain climbing and white water rafting, kayak and so much more.

I love to share the peaceful beauty that I have found here and will do my best to provide you with a memorable experience that you will want to repeat. My home is open to singles, couples and alternative lifestyle welcome. My pets are friendly and love company.....but are never allowed in the guest bedroom.

                  My property backs up to Primary Rain Forest, you can walk and explore without having to take a tour. There is also a wonderful Canopy Tour and Waterfall Tour near by and Ultra Light Plane tours. I also have many books to share and hammocks to relax if you are not an adventure seeker. Sunsets down at the beach are wonderful and very close by. The only rip tide free beach is right below my home a short distance away to the entrance.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I moved here from Sarasota Florida around 11 years ago. I designed my home to optimize living with nature, which is the reason I was so attracted to this property. I knew that I wanted to share this special place with others, which is why the house was designed sort of like a compound, with separate destination points and privacy in mind. I love animals and plants, all things of beauty. The picture of myself here is with a howler monkey that I raised from the time of her mothers death, she was only about 2 weeks old when she was brought to me. She stayed with almost 5 years and I slowly was able to introduce her to the jungle and other monkeys. She now lives free and has her own baby! This was one of the grandest experiences I have had here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                  This area has a very healing energy about it and the beauty is unsurpassed. The location feels like you are far away from it all, yet I have easy access to all my needs, like hospital, shopping, great restaurants, tours, beaches and fun things to do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being able to witness the wildlife and beauty of nature all around me. Incredible breezes and cooling rains in the evening. Waking to the sounds of the waves breaking and howler monkeys is just paradise to me. Watching the sun shine on the water drops left by the nights rain, making it look like diamonds have fallen on the jungle at night. No distractions other than the beauty of the jungle and ocean.
