Property description

Casa Uvita, located in Uvita, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is a beautiful 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom eco-home with a maximum capacity of 6-8 guests. It sits on the edge of primary rainforest, only 8 minutes from the Marino Ballena National Park beaches. Casa Uvita is close enough to modern conveniences, but far enough to be immersed in the sights and sounds of Costa Rica's tropical wildlife. The spacious, indoor/outdoor, two-story home is luxuriously outfitted with wooden floors, high ceilings, large windows and upscale bathrooms. The top floor has a master suite, two additional bedrooms, two balconies, and sitting and dining areas. Each bedroom upstairs has its own private bathroom. Downstairs, there is another bedroom and bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining areas, and covered porches. Spectacular forest and stunning Pacific Ocean views can be seen from every area of the house. Common sightings include howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, aracaris, and parrots. Hike to nearby waterfalls or lounge in your hammock to enjoy the forest sights and sounds. Casa Uvita is completely self-sustaining, using solar energy and water from a natural spring. 24/7 security; daily housekeeping. NEW! Beautiful swimming pool in rainforest setting, with ocean view! 12 meters long, with lap lane.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Michele González, co-owner and visionary of Casa Uvita, is a bilingual teacher, adventure travel guide and public health professional. When she is not on her bike, swimming, bird watching or beach running with Casa Uvita guests, Michele works as an international health and education consultant throughout Latin America. Antonio Arroyo, co-owner, is a construction genius, currently working in northern California and at Casa Uvita. He is both the design and muscle behind Casa Uvita. When Antonio is not designing or building something fabulous, you can find him cooking gourmet meals for friends and family.

Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
Welcome to Casa Uvita. Our hope is that guests will forever remember the vast beauty of this mountain, its wildlife, the ocean views and of course, Casa Uvita. Whether you are an active traveler, or you just want to lie in a hammock, Casa Uvita will leave you with memories for a lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is completely self-sustaining, using solar energy and water from a natural spring. From its two balconies enjoy the stunning Pacific Ocean views and world-class birding.
