Welcome to the new and improved Casa Las Terrazas. Since undergoing a major renovation in the summer of 2015, this incredible vacation villa is back and better than ever.
Now featuring a pair of wrap-around decks on the second and third floors, five bedrooms all equipped with air-conditioning units, a crow’s nest on the top floor that can serve as a sixth bedroom, and all new appliances and furniture throughout the home, Casa Las Terrazas has been transformed into an ideal vacation getaway for large groups of friends and family.
Nestled in the upscale hillside community of Escaleras, Casa Las Terrazas has some of the finest ocean views in all of Costa Rica. From the deck of the villa’s extraordinary infinity pool, guests have ideal sightlines toward the Pacific Ocean below, including unabated views of the world famous Whale’s Tail in Uvita. The infinity pool has everything you’ll need to get comfortable, including lounge chairs, umbrellas, coolers and pool toys. Even the outdoor pool shower has a magnificent view of the mighty Pacific below. All told, there may not be a better place to tan on the entire planet!
Just beyond the pool sits a relaxing bodega, where guest can sip coffee while watching the morning toucans take flight, or mix cocktails during the afternoon sunset to the sound of howler monkeys in the trees.
The house itself has everything you’ll need for a modern, upscale vacation. There is wireless internet, television, state-of-the-art appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven and a washer/dryer unit. Three of the five bedrooms feature on-suite bathrooms and showers, while the other two bedrooms share a bathroom and shower. In addition, there is a fifth restroom downstairs near the laundry room.
Of all the new additions and upgrades, the wrap-around decks are really something spectacular. These decks have amazing jungle-to-sea-views, and are complete with multiple celling fans, chairs, tables and even a comfortable couch. Odds are you’ll be spending a lot of time relaxing on these decks while listening to the natural music of the surrounding jungle.
With the additional crow’s nest on the top floor, which has its own bed, Casa Las Terrazas can easily accommodate a dozen guests.
The villa itself is located approximately 10 minutes off the coastal highway, directly in-between the towns of Dominical to the north and Uvita to the south. Reaching either town by car takes less than 20 minutes. Each place – Dominical and Uvita – feature restaurants, shopping, banks and grocery stores. Uvita also has a pair of pharmacies. There is also a very popular bar and restaurant on the mountain, Bar Jolly Roger, that serves quality food, cold beer and has live music. Bar Jolly Roger is a 3-minute drive from the villa, or a 10-minute walk.
Outdoor activities abound in this area of the country. While staying at Casa Las Terrazas, you’ll be within a short drive of all kinds of great tours, including canopy zip lines, river rafting, surfing, paragliding, waterfall rappelling, ATV adventures, horseback rides, snorkeling, kayaking and much more.
There are many options when choosing a luxury villa in southern Costa Rica, but few can match the uniqueness, style and modern comfort of Casa Las Terrazas. This truly is a place where a weeklong vacation can make memories that last a lifetime.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Currently residing in Texas. Casa Las Terrazas is a second home. Purchased primarily for family and friends to use and enjoy.

Why Bahía Ballena, Costa Rica:
After searching many areas for a vacation home including Florida, Mexico, and Belize, Costa Rica was selected because it offers everything the others have and so much more. Costa Rica has a tropical climate, beautiful beaches, birding, swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling, zip lining, white water rafting, eco tourism, hiking, national parks, mountains, volcano's, deep sea fishing, inland fishing, horseback riding, and waterfall rappelling to name some things to do. The Tico people of Costa Rica are warm and friendly people. Costa Rica was recently named the most happiest place in the world. The population is 96 percent literate. Education is a priority. They have full employment and low crime. Where else would you want to be?

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Las Terrazas is a secluded, restful and peaceful place. It is surreal. Being enveloped in the tropical rain forest jungle with the birds, butterflies, Toucans, and monkeys is a unique place to be. The flora and fauna is abundant throughout the properties walking paths. At 1200 feet elevation it feels as though you are on the top of the world. Majestic mountain and ocean views abound throughout the estate. The multiple walking paths and the natural waterfall give you a sense of being in a wildlife nature reserve with many stopping points to reflect on life's beauty or read a good book. The sights and sounds will fill your senses with a most pleasurable experience. Once you arrive you won't want to leave. Checking out is hard to do, but coming back is easy!
