This craftsman inspired tropical Villa is nestled on 4 acres of a private paradise in the Rainforest jungle surrounding Uvita. The panoramic views of the ocean, Isla Ballena, Cano Island, Tres Hermanas (Three Sisters rocks), Osa Peninsula, and the Rainforest will take your breath away!
The Villa is ideally located at a comfortable elevation of 750 feet, above the town of Uvita in a private gated wildlife reserve surrounded by 100+ acres of Rain forest.
Built in 2008, Villa Kristina Maria has 4 spacious bedrooms (including two master suites), 3.5 bathrooms, over 2250 sq. ft. of indoor living space plus 1500+ sq. ft. of covered wrap around decks with lounge chairs and rocking chairs for relaxing and soaking in the scenery.
The Villa offers a truly unique and private location with a spacious open floor plan designed for indoor/outdoor living, lots of windows with screens, and ceiling fans in every room and on the decks for panoramic ocean views from every room.
Relax as you sip a drink at the bar on the palapa covered deck adjacent to the sparkling tiled swimming pool that features a serene rock waterfall surrounded by lush tropical plants and flowers. The palapa deck has a wet bar with a refrigerator, several bamboo bar stools, bamboo lounge chairs, a settee, and arm chairs. You'll never want to leave!
The Villa is tropically furnished with locally crafted bamboo furniture and beautiful artwork by Costa Rican artisans. Each of the four bedrooms has a queen sized bed, pillow top mattress, bamboo headboard, mirrored armoire wardrobe, an arm chair, and its own covered deck with a ceiling fan, and views of the ocean, islands and jungle.
The kitchen features stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, tropical designed dishes, a breakfast bar, and is fully equipped with a toaster, electric coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, linens and cooking utensils.
The dining room has a large dining table that seats 8 people. You can also dine al fresco at the bamboo table on the deck, or at the palapa bar.

Hike to beautiful waterfalls in the nearby eco-community of the private reserve. Relax in a lounge chair and enjoy the tranquility and soothing sounds of the rainforest, or read a book in a comfortable bamboo rocking chair on the deck.
Minutes to beautiful tropical beaches where the jungle meets the shore, and the ocean temperatures range from 80-88 degrees year around!

Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: Living in southern California, our family has always enjoyed outdoor activities at the Beach, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, Nature, and hiking. Our interests then were a perfect fit to purchase a home at the beach in Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula. Our favorite beaches near us are Playa Ballena, Playa Ventanas, and Playa Hermosa. Also our favorite restaurants in the area are La Fogata in Uvita and Exotica in Ojochal.
Why the Owner Chose Uvita, Costa Rica:
We fell in love with the spectacular views and surroundings of the Rainforest gorgeous scenery and natural wildlife in this secluded gated reserve in the Uvita area in the Southwest Pacific region of Costa Rica. The Costa Rican people are very warm and friendly, and made us feel welcome. This private wildlife reserve and gated community where Villa Kristina Maria is located, reminds us of Jurassic Park because of its lush natural environment and abundant wildlife. Being surrounded by Nature is a peaceful and renewing experience. We purchased the property in 2014. The home was designed by our friends Steve and Cathy in 2007, and started construction in mid-2007 with Ecomaderas, a local Tico contractor, and completed construction in 2008. We are proud of the way the home blends so seamlessly into the Rainforest.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relax to the sound of the river cascading through the Rainforest. You'll be lulled to sleep by croaking frogs and the sounds of the jungle at night. Awaken to the distinct roar of Howler monkeys as they traverse through the jungle, and the squawking of green parrots flying overhead. When the surf is big, you can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Included in the vacation rental is access to our Beach Club. The Beach Club has a beachside restaurant and bar, swimming pool, shower, and restroom facilities with private access to the beach in Marina Ballena National Park. It is a beautiful tropical beach with views of Tres Hermanas rocks and Isla de Cano. The ocean water temperature is a warm 80-88 degrees year-round. Monkeys and scarlet macaws are often sighted in the trees surrounding the beach. Villa Kristina Maria is located in the Uvita area in a private, gated, and protected wildlife reserve. It is an ideal setting for viewing the flora and fauna of more than 100 acres of primary and secondary Rainforest, streams, waterfalls, and hiking trails.
