Property description

For travellers who are looking for something more than budget, Costa Rica Holiday Home (also called Casa Mediterranea) is the place! This house is not on the beach, it is near the beach and the National Park, where the ocean meets the rainforest in the town of Uvita.The house is private and comfortable for four to six guests, this brand new two-bedroom house in a 1000 m2 garden with jacuzzi and veranda 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 and wall mounted remote controlled fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room has a sofa-bed for 5th and 6th guest if needed. For the 7th and 8th guests Air Mattresses are provided. All open areas are covered by screens to stop undesired animals. The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with European 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. The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.The spacious external porch offers a table with 6-8 chairs to enjoy the sound of the ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock at the veranda and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws! The veranda sits up to 12 persons.The external new garden is equipped with a BBQ area and outdoor shower. The parking place is private.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 organising 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 Casa Mediterranea you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimise your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

Car: Recommended

Costa Ballena is where you can enjoy the radiant lush green of the mountains and jungle teaming up with the Pacific Ocean. Marina National Park named after the whales that come yearly for courting and calving , have abundant sea life, are ideal for snorkelling and watching unforgettable sunsets. All kinds of tours of adventure and discovery are nearby as well as places where you can relax and enjoy delicious food.

The town of Uvita is located next to a beautiful pristine white sandy beach that looks out onto sparkling pacific waters which are excellent for swimming and snorkeling.

Uvita beach and its immediate surroundings are abundant in tropical flora and fauna and it is a protected conservation area belonging to the nearby Marina Ballena National Park. This is home to beautiful species of humming birds, toucans, monkeys, parrots, iguanas and sloths. Between the months of July to January sea turtles arrive to lay their eggs.

The Marina Ballena National Park is the location of the famous whale tail coastal formation. Best accessed during low tide, this sand bar has acquired the shape of a whale's tale through natural erosion. Resident dolphins are easy to spot and Humpback whales pass through these Pacific waters between July and November and from December to March. Uvita is a charming village named after its adjacent river, enclosed by the Pacific Ocean and mountainous rainforest surroundings, buzzing with tropical wildlife. This is where jungle meets ocean.

Described by many as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, south-western Costa Rica has plenty of beautiful beaches and fantastic vistas. Of the many spectacular beaches found here, Playa Uvita is among the top six most stunning beaches in Costa Rica (Frommers). Located in the southern Puntarenas province between surfing hotspot Dominical (with plenty of laidback nightlife) and the relaxed village Ojochal (with great restaurants), Uvita is the perfect base for an unforgettable holiday.
