The large infinity pool is surrounded by bougainville, plumeria trees, palm trees, heliconia plants and several blooming tropical plants that attract butterflies and humming birds. Relaxing at Casa Eko Mar includes taking a dip in the infinity pool, lounging poolside under the shade umbrella, reading your most recent book in the outdoor living space or in one of the adirondack chairs located in the rancho.

Casa Eko Mar is surrounded by splendid flowering trees, a Royal Palm tree and a tropical flowering garden. During the day, the winds are on-shore from from the ocean while at night, the winds are off-shore from the mountains. These gentle winds bring a confortable temperature, making your visit more fresh than being at sea level.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation at Casa Eko Mar and we were so sad to leave! We flew into San Jose and arrived late in the evening due to flight delays and Yves was there to warmly greet us and show us around. The casa and surrounding area are truly breathtaking and Yves has really taken the time to assure that you have everything you need during your stay. You really cannot capture the beauty of Casa Eko Mar in pictures - you have to experience it! Thank you Yves, Filu, and Bo (the sweetest furbabies) for being the best hosts ever. It was a magical and adventurous week and we cannot wait to return! Pura Vida!

Beautiful property, excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Eko Mar. The property is gorgeously landscaped and very private so you feel you have the hillside all to yourself. Yves was very attentive, friendly and helpful. He does not intrude at all unless you contact him, so again, the house feels very private. The pool with its view is lovely, the kitchen is well-equipped, the bedrooms are very comfortable and air conditioned, and 2 1/2 bathrooms are so nice to have when the whole family is together. The living area is an outdoor covered patio, where we loved relaxing to read or chat on the couches and chairs. There's also a dining area outside on the covered patio (in addition to the dining room inside) where we enjoyed a lovely sunset meal. We visited during rainy season, and were able to be outdoors any time of day at the house. Yves' two adorable little dogs visited us almost daily, and took themselves home when they were done visiting, which we found completely charming. Overall it was a fantastic visit, and we highly recommend Casa Eko Mar!

Sad that we had to leave...

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, the view and surroundings breathtaking. What a treat to be enjoying the infinity pool while contemplating the jungle!

We all felt like pampered Tarzan and Jane. Yves, the owner was very friendly and helpful with any question we had.

We fell in love with the area and will most definitely come back.

Most relaxing Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

Yves is the host with the most.. We made a new life-time friend. very accomodating.

The most beautiful views, secluded and surrounded by tropical rain forest.parrots, toucans,

banana trees, palm trees by the thousands.. beautiful beaches, nature parks, very quaint

local restaurants, infinity pool , one you can enjoy every day. Beautiful modern well equiped

home. If you can't chill here, you do not have the capacity to ever chill..

We will certainly return and have shared our experiance over and over.

Couldn't have picked a better vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa de Mar! The home was absolutely amazing ... Better than the pictures! While lounging in n the pool, we saw birds of all kinds flying around us ... Toucans, Hawks, etc. And Yves was such a terrific host ... He greeted us with a fresh pineapple in the counter and cold beer in the fridge. And - mid-week - he surprised us with fresh coconut water for our enjoyment. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer but will surely return here when we go back to Costa Rica.

Un paradis sur terre

  • 5 of 5

Yves, le propritaire est très acceuillant, serviable et sympathique. La maison est très propre et bien équipée. Le terrain est magnifique et enchanteur et la vue de la mer et de la forêt tropicale est époustouflante. Idéal pour les amateurs de la faune. Moments magiques garantis très tôt le matin et aux couchers du soleil où les animaux de la jungle s'activent particulièrement. C'est l'occasion idéale pour y observer divers oiseaux incroyables (toucans, perroquets, aigles, même des singes hurleurs rigolos et autres animaux et insectes impressionnants. On n'est même pas obligés de visiter les parcs nationaux, déjà tout y est et chaque jour amène son lot de surprises: il suffit de s'arrêter, écouter et regarder autour de soi. Tout autour de la maison sécuritaire, il y a beaucoup à faire: chutes d'eau, thyroliennes, parcs nationaux, plages magnifiques et services restaurants et épiceries tout près. Nous recommendons fortement cette belle maison où la vie y est paisible et agréable.

Car: necessary

Located only 7 minutes to the closest beach, Playa Hermosa, you may want to try kayaking, surfing, bodysurfing or horseback riding on the beach. Other activities include visiting Nauyaca Falls on horseback, scuba diving or snorkeling at Isla Ballena or Cano Island, or deep sea fishing. Some prefer kayaking the mangroves of the Terraba River or SUP (Stand Up Paddle) into wave-cut caves along the coast.

You can walk out to the tip of the Whale’s Tail at low tide from Ballena National Park or to hidden coves and expansive beaches up and down the coast. At Hacienda Baru you can sail through the jungle on a zip line, take a bird watching tour or climb to the top of the tree canopy. Wherever you go, don’t forget your camera and binoculars.
