Year Purchased: 2006
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 in the Osa Peninsula are Playa Ballena, Playa Ventanas, and Playa Hermosa. Also our favorite restaurants are La Fogata in Uvita and Exotica in Ojochal.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Casita Kristina Maria is located in the Uvita area in a private, gated eco-community, and protected wildlife reserve. It is an ideal setting for viewing the flora and fauna of more than 100 acres of primary and secondary Rain forest, streams, waterfalls, and hiking trails. The Casita is surrounded by the rain forest jungle. Relax to the sound of the creek babbling through rain forest. 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 sometimes hear the waves crashing on the beach. Included in the rental is access to our Beach Club. The Beach Club has a beach side restaurant, bar, swimming pool, restroom facilities, shower, free beach parking, and a palm-lined trail to the beach. 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.
