Property description

These open and airy bungalows are nestled in the mountains above Ballena National Park where fantastic ocean views and tropical breezes mingle with flocks of Toucans and Cusingas who are frequent visitors. Situated at 1300 feet, the vista overlooking Cano Island and the valley of Uvita are breathtaking both day and night during any season. The white water views and opportunity to spy migrating whales while watching the tide play hide and seek with the magnificent “whales tail” never fails to astonish no matter how many times you observe this amazing enigma. The exquisite orchestra of exotic birds and Howler Monkeys which greets you every morning will satiate your soul with peace and harmony and is often accompanied by the distant sound of the crashing waves. You are also guaranteed to share your day with many of the other local residents including Hummingbirds, White Faced Capuchin, Geckos, Parrots, and various frogs and numerous other amazing creatures; our Bungalows are situated in the sparsely populated jungle mountain area of Bejuco and surrounded by protected park land making our mountain a haven for all sorts of wildlife!
Even though you may not want to leave this tranquil paradise, a short fifteen minute trip to the bottom of the mountain will bring you directly into the center of the town of Uvita. Here you can stock up on groceries, enjoy amazing restaurants, sign up for tours and visit local boutiques. Just a short 5 minute drive from the center of town you can enjoy the serene and isolated beaches of Ballena and Hermosa. Drive 15 minutes north and enjoy the surfing paradise of Dominical which is packed with beach side restaurants, tour agencies, and gift shops! Or enjoy a quiet day of snorkeling on your own at any of the beaches, as there are two sets of gear at the Bungalows for you to utilize!
Whether you need to get away to a peaceful paradise or are looking for days filled with fun activities, our simple and comfortable Bungalows are the perfect places to escape too! Pura Vida amigos!

Our Bungalows are located at 1300 in the beautiful jungle mountain area of Bejuco, Uvita. We are located just far enough from civilization to feel as if you are isolated from the world! But, just a short 15 minute drive down the mountain and you are on the main Costanera, able to shop for groceries, go to banks, find amazing restaurants and local sodas, and visit the national parks and beaches for snorkeling and surfing! It is like being in two different worlds!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Kevin is an avid fisherman, and the captain of his own fishing charter business, Diablo Sportfishing, on both Cape Cod, Massachusetts and in Costa Rica. Aly, finished college with a degree in Leisure Management and has been fortunate enough to combine her education with her love for exotic places! Being that Costa Rica is one of the number one fishing spots the world coupled with the fact that this small country houses 5% of the worlds flora and fauna, neither Kevin nor Aly could think of a more appropriate place for them to live their lives; as this area is a true paradise to both of them!

Why Uvita:
Before graduating from college, Aly applied to do an internship at a resort in Arenal, Costa Rica. Unfortunately, her Spanish speaking skills were not very strong at that time, and she did not get the job! So, years later, when her boyfriend, (now husband) Kevin, asked her where she wanted to go on vacation, she immediately knew that Costa Rica was the adventure her heart yearned to experience! Having heard that land in Costa Rica was relatively 'cheap', Kevin began investigating different areas on the south west coast and planned the entire 15 day vacation around meetings with realtors! Both Kevin and Aly instantly feel in love with the 2 acre parcel of land in Bejuco, and even though friends and family told them that they were crazy to buy a piece of land in a foreign country, they followed their hearts and purchased the land the day before going home!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
It has been a blessing to have found such an amazing and tranquil paradise which is surrounded by beauty and wildlife. Sitting on the deck every morning listening to the Howler Monkeys, tropical birds, and waves while drinking a cup of Costa Rican coffee and watching the hummingbirds dance around the flowers is a dream! Aly volunteers for the Villas Alturas Animal Sanctuary, helping to rehabilitate injured wildlife and also enjoys fostering dogs for a local rescue named DAWG. She takes daily hikes up the mountain road with her four legged friends and is always amazed at the wildlife she sees, including armadillos, frogs, monkeys, sloths, toucans, and snakes! Whereas Kevin has developed some great friendships with the locals and enjoys fishing with them on a daily basis! Kevin enjoys taking guests out on his boat to enjoy the Pacific and the wonder of spotting turtles, dolphins and whales!
