Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I come from Japan. I love minimalism, zen and clean. Enjoy nature and surfing.

Why the Owner Chose Bahía Ballena, Costa Rica:
The villa is located 17km south of the town of Dominical and 2km north of the town of Uvita. Uvita is the jewel crown of Costa Rica, located on the southwestern Costa Ballena. It also features the countries best-kept secret, the most dedicated national park, Parque Nacional Marino Bellena (National marine preserve). “This tropical hamlet possesses great charm in an unspoiled, serene atmosphere. With palm trees swaying in the wind, providing shady relief from the intense Pacific sun, it may seem surreal that this environment is as uncorrupted as it is. It won't stay like this forever though, conditions will one day change and the secret of the Bahia Ballena National Park will be out.”

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There are three guest suites: the three air-conditioned guest suites offer 1 king size, 2 queen size with an additional single bed and in-suite bathrooms. The open-air living and dining area offer guest’s breathtaking views of the pacific ocean, poolside with cocktail in hand, guests can partake in enchanting sunsets every evening. The dining area seats 6-8, and the kitchen is professionally equipped to cater for the most lavish of dinner parties and guests' requirements.
