Property description

Welcome to Casa Aracari...Let your imagination soar where the Sky meets the Sea, located at a comfortable 400 meters above the coastline of Punta de Ballena in Costa Rica. This ideal tropical vacation home is nestled in the jungle on one acre of Paradise. Its unique architecture and original design by Eva offers a spacious open-air indoor/outdoor floor plan. Walk in and pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!

We take pleasure in sharing the beauty of Costa Rica by using materials manufactured locally and incorporated in the design throughout the house. Construction was completed in December 2010 by local craftsmen/artists Wilberth Acuna and Dagoberto Mora. The spiral teak staircase at the heart of the home, wraps itself around a locally grown Guanacaste tree. The railings are artistically handcrafted with local Mangrove roots and Bejuco vine. The ceiling is lined with grass mats made by skilled Mayan Indians especially for Casa Aracari.

The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and beautiful custom wood counters is the social center of the home. For an extra special treat, create your own gourmet dinner and serve it in the dining room while enjoying the sunset views. Sit in the living room, open the tall folding glass doors, and create a large indoor/outdoor living space with panoramic views of the pool, jungle covered mountains, ocean, Bahia Ballena, and surrounding bird life.

Relax under the covered deck in a hammock or lounge chair, go for a swim in the beautiful infinity pool, or enjoy an ice cold drink made from delicious fruits of the region while sitting on one of the four bar stools at the table shaded by the palapa covered umbrella in the pool.

So many beautiful scenes will delight you as you sit on the upstairs balcony and watch in awe as the sunrise and sunset transform the sky! Watch from the balcony for the many varieties of wildlife in the area... the jungle surrounding the house promises an abundance of tropical sights and sounds that will continue day and night. Be sure to have your camera ready! Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, and Dart frogs are frequent visitors.

There is a Casita on the property which offers a charming bedroom for two with Queen size bed and full bathroom, a small kitchen and dining area. If you wish to rent the main House and need additional room, then it is possible to rent the Casita also for a small additional amount. You will always have the use of our entire property to yourselves for total peace and tranquility.

Guests who rent our home enjoy the use of a beautiful nearby beach at no charge with our special Beach Club membership. Our Beach Club has a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, showers, restrooms, parking, and the private access to one of the beautiful beaches in Marino Ballena National Park.

Neighboring towns of Uvita, Dominical and Ojochal offer fabulous Restaurants to delight your taste. As a guest of Casa Aracari you are also welcome to enjoy the special cuisine at nearby Kura Boutique Hotel. Let us know if you are interested and we will put you in contact with Kura directly for your reservations.

The road up the hill to Casa Aracari will take you on an Adventure passing by waterfalls, small bridges over streams, tree ferns, tropical flowers, surrounding jungle life and ocean views. You will see Costa Rica at its best! A 4x4 vehicle is required in many areas of Costa Rica, including our area.

There are many thrilling and educational activities in the area...Something to please everyone. Our staff is available to assist with questions and bookings. See list of Activities below.

We hope you enjoy planning your trip to Casa Aracari in beautiful Uvita, Costa Rica.

Pura Vida!

Owner info

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 in the Osa Peninsula are Playa Ballena, Playa Ventanas, and Playa Hermosa.
