Uvita house description

Family adventure awaits at Casa Mañana. Whether you’re staying in for a day at the poolside or exploring the Uvita area, there is no shortage of things to do and see.
Awaken to the ever-changing sounds of the rain forest; enjoy coffee on the balcony while taking in the panoramic view of the Pacific. Our home is located in one of the most biodiversity-rich areas in the world; you never know what you are going to see or hear making every day a new adventure.

Casa Mañana is uniquely designed to provide 4 couples with the convenience of maximum privacy in your bedroom area, coupled with a central common area to enjoy group interaction.

Each of the four bedrooms comes with a queen size bed, a private bathroom, fold-down laptop computer desk, overhead fan and windows all around – immerse yourself in nature, or pull down the shades for a peaceful afternoon nap.

A 10 minute drive allows you to spend your day at Uvita waterfall at the base of Bejuco road. The mountain water is always cool and refreshing. Let the kids splash in the water, while you enjoy a cold beer or a delicious fresh fruit smoothie at the restaurant.

Venture a little further and explore the world famous Whales Tail in Ballena Marine National Park. This unique natural phenomenon which can be viewed from your balcony back at Casa Mañana, provides the perfect back-drop for a day of exploration when the tide is out and the Whale’s Tail becomes accessible for beach combing. The sparkling sandy white beach is breath taking and appears endless. Be sure to bring a pail for collecting beach-side treasures and enjoy a relaxing swim in the calm waters of the cove created by the peninsula.

Retire to Casa Mañana to plan tomorrow’s adventure and experience the sensational Costa Rican sunset. Each one is truly a memorable experience from this spectacular mountainside vantage point.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: After twenty three years of dreaming about it - we finally took the plunge and bought a lot in Uvita, Costa Rica. We have had our ups and downs on this journey – but mostly ups. The name Casa Mañana evolved as we quickly had to learn to adapt to Costa Rica timing. Mañana (tomorrow - or not today) was the theme of our entire building experience, it was indeed an adventure. Our 3 years spent on this labour of love has allowed us to make our dream home a reality. Retirement has allowed us to stay at Casa Mañana 6 months of the year. For us, escaping the snowy Canadian winters has made it all worthwhile. In 2012 we had opportunity to visit Casa Mañana in the summer with our grandchildren, and it was truly a completely different, but wonderful experience. Starting in the summer of 2013, we have decided to share our dream home Casa Mañana, as well as our Casita Lo Hicimos ( in English -We did it!) with others wishing to explore Costa Rica while enjoying the comforts of a home away from home. We hope your stay will bring you the same joy we experience each and every day when we wake up to a new Costa Rican day. Pura Vida Costa Rica!

                  Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                  It is close enough to everything we need as seniors - yet far enough away from the bussle and noise of town to allow us to experience cool ocean breezes, phenominal views, greenery everywhere, peace and tranquility and wildlife

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Each bedroom offers complete privacy and a multitude of windows to view the ocean from every room. Glass doors off each bedroom offer a large balcony upstairs and amazing ocean and whales tail views - and the walkouts from downstairs bedrooms offer an overhead or open patio and the pool just feet away for that early morning refreshing dip WONDERFUL OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM IN THE HOUSE
