Property description

I fell in love with this property because of the uniqueness of it . I believe you will too. It sits high above two river valleys and adjacent to a waterfall below, easily accessable. You will want to be there every day. If you would like , let us prepare a picnic basket for you.
The casita was newly built in 2011, highlighting Asian characteristics with indoor outdoor living thanks to sliding glass doors that disappear into the wall for total access to the pool area. There are two bedrooms with private baths off each. The master has an outdoor shower and indoor Jacuzzi . The living area is accented by a gas fireplace that can certainly be enjoyed many times a year. There is a small patio adjacent to the pool and jungle that we use for private sunbathing , stargazing and yoga. A/C is available in the bedrooms but not necessary as there is always a flowing through the casita during the day. It can be chilly at night.
There is so much to offer that it is best to see the pictures and write Mercedes with any other questions you may have .
Pura Vida,
Linn

Car: Necessary

The casita property is adjacent to a beautiful river and waterfall below... access either by hiking or three minutes by car.. Hiking trails are accessable from here. Specialist Andrew at Rancho DiAndrew can take you on some amazing jungle guided walks you will never forget. There are SO many activities in the Uvita, Dominical, Ojochal areas that the best way to get an overview of what is available if this is your first trip, is to visit

http://www.uvita.info/tours

Any arrangements or adventure tours can be made by the on site property manager, Mercedes Chastain. She also offers you catering in the home; picnic lunches and can have your grocery list purchased and waiting for you upon arrival.

Owner info

About the owner: I visited Costa in 1993 but never dreamed of building until my daughter and her family moved five years ago. They now raise two of my grand children here and love it.... I love the interesting mix of the Gringo and Tico communities. We all celebrate life, share and appreiate CR's beauty. I am fortunate to call my main home MN, where I keep my horse, Kato and golf at the two best courses in the Midwest, Cragun's Legacy and Madden's Classic. I also visit my friend's Colorado home as much as possible in between... What an amazing three locations to live .
