Uvita house description

Conveniently located 1000 feet above the village of Uvita, where the mountains go right down to the coast, this private 2000 square foot villa is nestled in a secluded jungle setting. There are ocean views across the entire west side of the house: kitchen, dining area, living room and veranda. One of the two bedrooms is set behind the veranda and can open up on it, allowing for an ocean view from bed. You do not need to bring much clothing because we have a dedicated laundry room and even provide the detergent. Due to the rapid rise in elevation, a 4x4 SUV will be needed and we can help you rent one at a very reasonable price. If you want to stay connected in the wilds, bring your laptop. The villa has WiFi. And if it rains, we have a flat screen TV, DVD player and extensive film collection. Or play a CD from our collection.

We are pleased to have Jaguar Property Management taking care of you throughout your stay. Their competent team is at your service beginning with meeting you on your arrival in Uvita and then escorting you to the house. They are happy to provide helpful and cheery assistance and information throughout your stay.

Hike right from the front door down to a nearby river for a swim in a waterfall pool or go down to the village. Uvita is a multi-cultured community which serves as the shopping hub for the area. There are restaurants, supermarkets, a tourist information center, cafes, boutiques and shops. There is a beautiful farmer's market every Saturday morning where many local artisans sell their wares. Uvita connects to Bahia, the entrance to Marino Ballena National Park which has the Whale's Tail, a nearly 700 meter long and 250 meters wide sandbank, the third largest in the world.

Tour operators here will bring you snorkeling right off the coast at Ballena Isla or to the famous Cano Island for scuba or snorkeling. They also offer tours to Corcovado National Park across the bay for a day of hiking in one of the few primal forests left in the world. Or choose a day of deep sea fishing or tour Uvita's 1000 acre wildlife preserve. There are zip line tours and ATV tours. Go 5 miles down the Costanera to kayak on the Terraba River in the largest mangrove in all of Central America. We also have several wonderful waterfalls which you can walk to or rent a horse and ride there. The Whale's Tail divides the endless coastline of beaches into two distinct kinds. On one side, enjoy vigorous surf for both swimming and surfing. And on the other side, enjoy the calm water ideal for snorkeling.

With ocean breezes all day and cool mountain air at night, there is no need for air conditioning (although one bedroom has an in-wall unit). The two large bedrooms have queen sized beds (one bedroom has an additional single bed), private baths, and are separated by a spacious living room with dining area. All closets are dehumidified. Fully equipped kitchen and vaulted ceilings with palm frond ceiling fans give this home both comfort and beauty. Incredible wildlife and spectacular sunsets make Casa Toucan unforgettable. Wake up to the calls of howler monkeys and have sunset cocktails with resident toucans by your 40 foot ocean-view, very private swimming pool.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We are Rob and Lynn Clark and we built Casa Toucan as our dream vacation home where we hope one day to retire. It was built to feel like a tree house perched over the Pacific ocean but to have all the comfort and luxuries of home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Uvita:
                          Uvita is right in the middle of the Southern Pacific Zone and therefore makes it much easier to see everything that this part of Costa Rica offers.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We feel right in the jungle with peace and quiet, listening to howler monkeys and toucans instead of chickens and radios.
