About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)
The house is also a tropical design, featuring structural bamboo vaulted ceilings and local exotic hardwoods. This home was built with airflow in mind. Unique and charming – the property sits at an elevation of 1100 ft (300 meters) – keeping the house cool and fresh during the day, with mountain downdrafts to cool at night.
A full kitchen has all you need, along with a gas BBQ, bathroom, living area, laundry and covered patio – all on the main floor. (The covered patio just might become your favorite place while songbirds and tropical birds visit in the trees as you sit mesmerized by the incredible ocean and mountain views.)
On the lower level - a spacious master bedroom with King size bed and incredible ocean views. Offering quality linens, privacy, and large en-suite, along with a walk-in closet with a safe to assure you peace of mind. Patio doors lead you to a private terrace where your infinity pool awaits.
The house was designed for couples - offering the perfect amount of detail to create an escape from the everyday life of the northern hemisphere. Ideal for honeymooners, personal life celebrations, birders, those who just want to get away from the busy-ness of daily life. This property is serene, but full of plant, bird and tropical life!
If you have some friends that may meet up with you during your stay - we can offer a second bedroom in our casita - which has a queen size bed, kitchenette and bathroom.
Access to this property is along an incredible jungle road. (It does have a couple of steep sections to it and requires a 4WD SUV.
Occasional sightings of sloths, Capuchan monkeys, Howler monkeys, jagarundi's, toucans, aricari's and parrots can be taken in along the drive to the house - bound to enhance your Costa Rican adventure!
Our property manager, Trina – will meet you in town and escort you to the property. We offer cell phone for local calls and 4MB WiFi Internet.
There is much to do in and around Uvita; Visit Ballena Marine Park and take a walk out to the Whale's Tail during low tide. Plan a horseback ride on the beach and to local waterfalls with La Merced. Charter a fishing boat for some of the most amazing off shore fishing you will ever experience! Rent an ATV and tour waterfalls and though the jungle. Take a boat trip to the Corcovado National Park in the Osa. Zipline, canopy walks and birdwatching tours. Oh and don't forget the surfing! Take in the skills of the locals at Playa Hermosa or Playa Dominical at sunset, then head out for a delicious dinner at one of many of the fabulous restaurants in our area.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Living in Vancouver, BC - every winter we escaped the rain and cold. In 1993 (our first trip to Costa Rica) we knew that someday - Costa Rica would become our future.... After many returning vacations, we discovered Uvita...and fell in love! ... with the local Tico community and their passion and determination to retain the lush and protected coastline. The beauty, the untouched coastline, the waterfalls and the animals. Pura vida!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We know that there are many other rentals to choose from. The beachside rentals are luring and are great if you want the beach holiday of heading out on the surf board 8 hours a day! The area is crowded and much of the wildlife is scared away, plenty of bugs, humidity and heat. The benefits of Bambu are that it is located on the hillside, where the air circulates with cooling tropical breezes, very few insects, rarely a mosquito and you are away from the noise of the coastal the highway. The property is 1.5 acres, with many fruit trees and tropical plants. Mandarinas, bananas, plantains, pineapples, avocados, plus many palms, heliconias, hibiscus, and tropicals. There are many areas to walk around the neighbourhood - to enjoy the howler monkeys and capuchan monkeys. There are so many birds to take note of and observe from our property and as you walk around the hillside.
