Uvita apartment description
This 2 bedroom completely private casita is situated on the same property as Casa Mañana and both units share a laundry room.
Situated on the 2nd floor above a storage garage, it is best suited for a couple or a couple with children, but could support 4 adults for a budget-conscious group.
Casita Lo Hicimos has a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, a single bed in a small second bedroom and a fold-down single couch in the living room.
Listen to the roar of the ocean at night, and the sounds of the jungle in the mornings. You may be awakened by the howler monkeys, cicadas or the haunting call of the toucans and twittering of a wide variety of bird species.
Have breakfast at the counter in the kitchen, or better yet, sit on the balcony with chairs for 4 and watch and hear the day awaken.
Good quality fans keep the casita comfortable but are usually not needed, thanks to the cool ocean breezes. Sometimes at night you will even need an extra blanket along with the bedspread to keep warm! It is hard to imagine feeling cool in this temperate tropical paradise, but it is just part of the Costa Rican experience – hot days, cool nights.
A compact kitchen boasts all new appliances including a full size electric stove and oven, large fridge, microwave, cooler for drinking water and plenty of cooking and eating utensils.
The living room provides comfortable seating for at least 4 people and has a 32 inch tv with complete range of US and Sis Spanish channels - not to mention sports channels for those dark early nights at home. There is also a full range of music channels, and we have provided a small lending library and selection of dvds if you can’t find something to watch or listen to! Wifi is now available
Multiple fruit trees are steps from the casita - please feel free to pick anything that is ripe - it will currently be mostly papayas as bananas need to hang at least a week after picking. Eventually we hope to share water apples, grapefruit, lemons and limes and our personal favourite – mangoes. This will be in the future though as the trees are not quite mature enough yet. However, the grocery stores and roadside farmers with loaded trucks will have plenty of fruits and veggies available just a short drive down the hill.

We stayed here for a relaxing week vacation. View was amazing and with only a few other houses around, it was very peaceful. It has everything one would need for day to day living including pots and pans which let us cook (saving money!) Over all it was a great very reasonably priced rental

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We shopped for the perfect property for a long time – over a few years and 3 different vacations; we traveled all over Costa Rica looking for “our place”. As the prices kept going up and up, we just could not find anything we loved - everything available was primarily flat farmers’ fields with a huge price tag. We were discouraged, but also determined after waiting more than 20 years to fulfill this dream – we took the plunge and bought our first piece of property in Costa Rica - a car. And when our lawyer who handled the purchase of the car told us he had a friend with an ocean view property he was anxious to sell - we jumped at the opportunity. Other than the challenging road and one close neighbor, it was a dream-come-true – and, as it turns out… the road is no longer a challenge for us, and that neighbour, while rarely there, is very difficult to see through all of the rainforest which has grown in around us in 3 short years. There have been some harsh learning curves - but “we made it” hence the name “Lo Hicimos” for the Casita and Casa “Mañana” (not today) for the principal residence on our dream property. We truly hope you will love it here as much as we do. We have provided everything we could think of for your comfort, but please advise us if there is anything missing that would make your stay even more enjoyable.
Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
From the verandah - we can see ocean views through the trees including the 3 Sister Rocks and the Ballena National Park Beach. Vegetative growth in Costa Rica is rampant (our bamboo trees grow at least a meter a month) so it can be a challenge to keep the branches trimmed enough for optimum viewing - but we do our best. The trees provide additional shade to keep the Casita cool and a safe haven for the multitude of birds that visit us. If you keep the feeder stocked with papaya in particular - you are sure to see some of them up close and personal – the Toucans stole a large bunch of our bananas before we realized they were ready - and there is always competition for our papayas - keep a close eye out and get them picked before the birds start their feasting!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One close neighbour and a second one up the hill offer a sense of community and yet we still have complete privacy on the ocean side of the property which both units face. We have a gate onto our property and have installed decorative window and door ironwork to provide ultimate security. Although there have been no break-ins in our community to date, we decided to make it a priority to provide all of our guests with peace of mind, knowing that both they, and their belonging are safe.
