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.

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.

Great House with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Casa Eko Mar. The house was just as pictured and was absolutely spotless.

Our favorite thing about the trip was simply hanging out in the house and enjoying the pool with that incredible view of the ocean.

Wonderful home overlooking jungle and Pacific Ocean and Whales Tale. Yves is a great host. Very quick to respond to any questions. We sat in the pool and just stared over the jungle to the ocean listening to the howler monkeys, parrots and toucans.

Beautiful pool and views

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The photos are very accurate, although the place is larger than it appears in the photos. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, the pool with infinity view to the sea was amazing. Yves is responsive and helpful while respecting privacy. There is a wonderful beach a short drive away. Restaurants and groceries also nearby. You will need a car, and I recommend 4 wheel drive.

We were so sad to leave :(

  • 5 of 5

~What an awesome property! We have stayed in VRBO's all over the world, and this was certainly one of the very best experiences! Yves is the perfect host - discreet, yet available when you need him. Although he lives on the property in a separate house, you feel complete privacy. He actually planned and built the house himself, because he's a construction engineer by trade. You can tell he loves his property, because it is immaculate.

~The view - wow. The house - wow. The pool - wow. We cooked every night we were there, which was made very easy by the variety of cooking tools, spices, pots/pans, etc. There are two supermarkets that take American Express and have everything you'll need. There are two pharmacies as well. Yves left us some coffee, which was very nice. He also had a couple of beers in the fridge, along with champagne for my 50th birthday, which we were celebrating. So kind!!

~We made sure to be back at the house, in the pool, every night by sunset, because it was magical. Every morning, we were woken up around 5:30 am to the sounds of the jungle coming to life. We were endlessly entertained by the flock of parakeets (not like the parakeets in the pet store, more like small parrots) that would arrive in the palm tree right outside our bedroom window at 6:00 am sharp. They played, swung from the palm fronds, flew away, came back, played some more. Too funny. The caucophony of sounds from all around us was mesmerizing. We saw toucans, butterflies, hummingbirds, and these adorable tiny birds building a nest in the same palm tree.

~Many fun things to do around Uvita. We did a waterfall rapelling adventure with Costa Canyoning that I highly recommend. We also did a combination whale-watching/snorkling trip with Bahia Ballena Kayaks, which I also highly recommend. We took a day trip to Manuel Antonio to visit the National Park with a guide, saw a sloth from 10 feet away, many Capuchin monkeys, racoons, Howler monkeys, etc. Playa Hermosa, 5 minutes from the house, is awesome with BIG waves (I was sad that I didn't get to try the Ceviche there, which is supposed to be good). Playa Ventana , with it's caves, is also close and was super interesting. We saw a band of Howler monkeys there, which was fascinating. Obviously, you have to go the the Whale's Tail at low tide at some point during your stay, because it's beautiful. We loved Costa Rica!

Spectacular Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 9 nights at Casa Eko Mar and couldn't have been happier. Honestly, the photos do not do this place justice. The kitchen is very nice, big and well equipped. Washer and Dryer worked great. There is even a clothes line that is very handy. We used it daily to hang up our wet pool towels and bathing suits and again when we did laundry. The patio is wonderful with a comfortable sitting area, eating table, grill, view and privacy. It is positioned perfectly in order to get a good cross breeze. If we weren't at the pool, we were on the patio. The pool is absolutely beautiful. It is very will maintained and some "floaties" are provided. The view from the pool is phenomenal. During the day you will be looking out over the jungle, river and to the ocean view. At sunset the view from the pool can not be beat.

Yves is a wonderful host. He is very knowledgable, responsive, friendly and welcoming. Upon our arrival he gave us a quick rundown of the house and then left us to enjoy ourselves. He lives right next door, but has positioned his house and the guest house in a way that you have complete and total privacy. Honestly, you will not even know he is there. His dogs, Bo and Filu, are incredibly sweet and made daily visits. They are very friendly, not at all obnoxious. We aren't "dog people" but by the end of our stay we looked forward to seeing them at least once a day.

The house is very secure with a locked gate and security system.

The property is beautiful with well kept landscaping. The gardener is very sweet and graciously provided us with some coconuts a couple of times during our stay. There are a variety of plants and the flowers are spectacular. We had a variety of birds visit the trees each day. It was fun to watch them.

We really liked the location of the house. It is very close to beaches, markets and restaurants. The road to the house is mostly paved.

We loved this place so much that we truly hated to leave. It is one of the few places that we would actually make a repeat stay at and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

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.
