For travelers who are looking for something more than budget, Ocean Melody is the place!
Private and comfortable for two guests, this brand new casita is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia. Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves.
The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion. Air conditioning provides extra cooling in the bedroom. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room sofa bed is available for young families with kids. The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with South Italian tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV, with satellite and video library, on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa-bed and armchair. The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables. The spacious external porch offers two rocking chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws! The external tropical garden hosts a variety of tropical plants and it is equipped with a BBQ area, a round stone table and chairs, and outdoor shower. The parking place is private, gated and lightened at night. The private pool and rancho will make your stay just perfect! The pool (6x3,5 meters) has internal stairs and a comfortable sidewalk where enjoying the sun and a fresh drink...or you can lay down on the pool lounge chairs in the shadow of the wooden (4x3 meters) rancho!
No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organizing mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from Ocean Melody!
No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With Ocean Melody you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimize your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

About the owner: Adriano and I (Massi) are two Italians travellers who came to Costa Rica through different paths and met in this wonderful South Pacific area of the Country, known as Costa Ballena.
In 2003 we started the first Property Management Company of the area and, since then, have managed more than 30 luxury properties all along the Coast.
Thanks to our business, we have grown a large knowledge of vacation houses and the needs of foreign vacationers. At the same time, we haven’t forgotten the pleasure and necessity of traveling with a limited budget!
Why the Owner Chose Uvita: Ocean Melody is the synthesis of our experience, as it joins the accessible price with all the comforts travelers need during their vacation time.
You will enjoy the piece of mind of living in a cosy house managed by professional property managers, who live in the area and will always be available for assisting you!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have built this Casita ourselves, giving our concept of vacation home to it . Houses along the Coast belong to two opposite concepts: on one side, very luxurious houses built by foreigners and provided with all comforts, but very isolated and very expensive; on the other side, local homes, with good rental prices but built without considering the basic comforts foreign travelers require.
Ocean Melody has been built looking for a joining point of these two concepts: Simple but with good taste, fully equipped for travelers’ comfort but without useless luxuries, private but not isolated, close to the beaches and still at a very accessible price!
