This ocean-view villa has breathtaking views of the ocean to the front, and the lush rainforest to the rear and sides. Its name is Canto Del Mar (Song of the Sea, Ridge of the Sea) because you can hear the roar of the ocean every night as the waves rush in. It is located at the very end of a beautiful ridge jutting out into the sea, about 300 feet above the ocean, so the home is far cooler and breezier than anything below. Just minutes from the beach! Less than five-minute drive from beach access points to about five beautiful unspoiled beaches, each with its unique character, some with sea caves. This is a newly constructed, spacious two-story furnished home, where you and your friends/family can bask in the luxury of having your own PRIVATE swimming pool, large covered and uncovered patio areas, and covered balcony. No neighbors in sight! Beautiful ocean views from top and bottom floors and from pool. (home is nearly 3000 square feet, plus 1000 sf patio space).
Convenient and Secluded!: When you’re at the house, at the end of Los Loros ridge, surrounded by toucans, parrots, hawks, eagles and monkeys, you will be in the middle of secluded rainforest, with scarcely any civilization in view. As you watch the wildlife, and see and listen to the breaking surf, you will feel like you are hundreds of miles away from everything.
However, this is a great, convenient location, less than one km off of Costanera highway, very near lots of great gourmet international restaurants (French, Italian, German, Swiss, Indonesian, Estonian . . . ), just minutes from grocery stores and other shopping in Ojochal and Uvita, and a short drive away from the best surfing in Dominical, and many wildlife parks and attractions.
Local Property Manager Minutes From the House!: The local property manager, Moises Solano, is located just minutes away from the house. He will greet you, show you to the house, make sure that you are comfortable and familiar with your surroundings, then continue to do everything possible to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. He can assist you with booking tours, rental cars, advance or forward travel arrangements, as well as handling any questions or problems that could arise during your stay.
This is sure to be an experience that you will never forget.

I built this beautiful home with a talented local architect and general contractor, completing it in 2009. I'm from New Orleans, and completely fell in love with this part of Costa Rica about twenty years ago.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Owner chose Bahía Ballena
This villa is surrounded by jungle and ocean, so it's entirely peaceful and secluded, but also incredibly close and convenient to everything. The jungle hides the few nearby homes from view, so you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. But it's only a five minute drive from the main thoroughfare, and close and convenient to all restaurants, attractions, amenities. It also offers luxury at a bargain price. Why stay in a cramped hotel room or little cabina for the same price when you can have this entire villa with its crystal-clear swimming pool all to yourselves?

This house was absolutely incredible! beautiful
I was extremely impressed with this home. Private hillside paradise! Beautiful pool, amazing beach view. Near a lot of amazing local beach fronts. Domincal near by has awesome bars and music clubs! Great food at near by local places in Uvita. We went on the Santa Luis falls tour! It was awesome! Will stay here again some time!
A Beautiful and very peaceful place to stay
We loved our stay here. The house is a perfect location to enjoy Marino Ballena National Park and all the beaches connected to the park. The house was well furnished. It was very hot when we were there so we appreciated the pool. We were also thankful for the fans that helped cool the house down at night. The internet works but is very slow. We really enjoyed breakfast at the Pancito Cafe in Ojochal. Moise was great to go through the house and help orient us to the area. We found a great place to buy fresh fish up the road as well. I would highly recommend this villa.
Thanks for being great guests, and I hope you can come back.
WONDERFUL TIME AWAY FROM IT ALL. EVEN WITH THE LOCAL HIPPIE FEST, IT WAS SERENE AND COMFORTABLE
Haha, yes we have Envision Fest here every year. I’m so glad that you guys had a great trip. Please come again. Karen
Beautiful!!!Exactly what was advertised!!
We were a family of 7,ranging in age from 28-63.....Karen's home was exactly as advertised and was perfect in every way!!
You were great guests. Please come back!! :)
Amazing home base in Costa Rica!
This was an amazing home base for my husband and I as we explored Costa Rica for the first time. Karen provided amazing communication from the very beginning. The home is gorgeous SUPER PRIVATE and spotless clean. We saw a toucan and a monkey while staying there. We enjoyed exploring Uvita, Ojochal, Dominical and Corcovado National Park - then came home to float in the pool. There is no A/C but we didnt need it as the home is airy and breezy. Karen goes out of her way by providing many recommendations for outings, dining and more. We look forward to coming back with our whole family.
I'm so glad that you guys had a wonderful stay! You were wonderful guests, and I certainly hope that you can come back with your entire family.
Lots of privacy and great views
The house is located up a short bumpy road that provides lots of privacy. The pool is wonderful to have on hot afternoons and for early morning swims. The space was more than enough for our small family. The kitchen has everything you need for basic cooking and we enjoyed using the grill. I would recommend 4x4 for the road. We enjoyed exploring the Marine Ballena national park, with a nice walk to the whale's tale formation. We also loved the local restaurants in Ojochal. Try out the new Heliconia restaurant at the bottom of the hill! It's a great place for lunch or dinner on your way to or from the house.
I’m glad you guys had a good time and hope you come back soon. Thanks for the new restaurant recommendation!
I first started coming to this beautiful part of Costa Rica ten years ago, and fell in love with the natural secluded surroundings, the gorgeous beaches, and the teeming wildlife. I don't think that there is any part of Costa Rica that quite compares with the Southern Pacific. Ojochal is a charming rustic village containing gourmet European restaurants in the jungle. Uvitia is the nearest larger town, containing banks, grocery store, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Dominical is a surfers' paradise. Fun Hip village for surfers and those who like to watch them, Great beach!
Other Activities: Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa
