Property description

Built on over 2.5 acres, the large private estate is situated in a quiet pristine setting. It consists of the Longhouse, where the owners live, an infinity-pool with Indonesian style gazebo to relax under while overlooking the jungle and ocean, and the Orange House, for rental. The buildings are surrounded by a huge tropical garden with lots of native trees, giant bamboo and local fruit trees set close to the rainforest and the Morete River.

Uvita, with its infrastructure that includes banks, supermarkets and restaurants, as well as the beaches and Marino Ballena National Park are only a short distance away by car. To Dominical it is a 9 miles / 10 min drive by car. One of the most popular national parks of Costa Rica, the Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos is just 37 miles/ 1 hour by car away. The property is located with easy access to the main road.

The Orange House is built a short distance from the Longhouse. It was designed to provide privacy for those who want to simplify and eliminate both the physical and psychological clutter in their lives and come back to nature.

The open inside is divided by built in furniture in bedroom, closet, kitchenette and daybed areas. Big sliding doors lead to the porch, which is settled between two big guaba trees, providing an easy interplay between indoors and outdoors. A lush outdoor garden bathroom invites the guests to experience a shower under the stars and emphasizes the open living character of the house.

The floors are made of stained polished concrete. Straight clear lines, minimalism of furniture and decoration invites the resident to enjoy the spirit of the tropical outside, surrounded by a simple inside design.

A sophisticated ventilation system of wood shutters and roof ventilation use the natural air flow to dispense with need for air-conditioning.

The pool area is located beside the longhouse and consists of a 3 x 11 m large infinity pool with waterfall shower from a bamboo pole and an Indonesian style gazebo to relax under. The pool will be exclusively for you to use during your stay.

From the pool area you will experience a breathtaking view of the surrounding jungle of the 'fila costeña', the coastal mountain range that rises to over 3000 feet above the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

1) How far is it to the international airport in San José?
We recommend to rent a car. It is a 124 miles / 3-4 hours drive from the international airport in San José to Uvita. We also recommend to do the drive during daytime. The best route is starting from the airport taking the new highway 27 direction Caldera and then highway 34 via Jaco, Quepos, Dominical to Uvita.

2) What kind of rental car do you recommend?
We highly recommend a rental car to explore the area! We also recommend a 4x4, it would not be absolutely necessary but more comfortable. A small one would be sufficient.

3) How close is the Orange House from the beach?
The nearest beach is Playa Hermosa, 1,5 miles from the Orange House.
The famous whalestail beach is approx. 3 miles away. All together we are close to 7 different beaches here in the Uvita area. You will need a car to go there.

Keywords: At the Orange House you will enjoy privacy with great views, stylish open living and garden bathroom! A perfect hideaway for honeymooner and nature lovers.
