Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife, daughter and I built this house over the years while living and loving the area. Despite the challenges, of building in the jungle, we had the best years of our lives living at this house and made lifelong friends with our amazing community. We recently moved to the Chicago area for family reasons, and try to get back to our real home in Uvita every chance we get.

Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
I fell in love with this property at first sight. I have travelled extensively around the world and have never seen a more beautiful view before or since. I felt drawn the the energy of the site and it it constantly inspires and surprises me. While the road can be adventurous and intimidating at first, you will quickly get used to it, and once you get to the house, the views are totally worth it. You can be in downtown Uvita in just 10 minutes, or back at the house living in luxurious secluded beauty. We have constant breezes, no biting insects, and it is usually 10-15 degrees cooler than down below.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In addition to the amazing views, we have bananas, coconuts, mangoes, papaya, limes, leeche fruit, and many more exotic plants. Toucans visit the house daily and you will hear howler monkeys every morning. We have also seen sloths, kinkajou's, baby deer, tepesuinte, coati's, hummingbirds, and macaw's without even leaving the porch. After 9 years, I can honestly say that we have the best view of the Whale's Tail that there is!
