About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, (sleeps 2-4)

For travellers who are looking for something more than budget, Ocean Melody is the place!

Private and comfortable for two guests, this new casita is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia.

Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves.

The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion.

Air conditioning provides extra cooling in the bedroom. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room sofa bed is available for young families with kids.

The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with South Italian tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV, with satellite and video library, on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa-bed and armchair.

The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.

The spacious external porch offers two rocking chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws!

The external tropical garden hosts a variety of tropical plants and it is equipped with a BBQ area, a round stone table and chairs, and outdoor shower. The parking place is private, gated and lightened at night.

The private pool and rancho will make your stay just perfect! The pool (6x3,5 meters) has internal stairs and a comfortable sidewalk where enjoying the sun and a fresh drink...or you can lay down on the pool lounge chairs in the shadow of the wooden (4x3 meters) rancho!

No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organizing mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from Ocean Melody!

No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With Ocean Melody you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimize your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

About Massi

Adriano and I (Massi) are two Italians travellers who came to Costa Rica through different paths and met in this wonderful South Pacific area of the Country, known as Costa Ballena.

In 2003 we started the first Property Management Company of the area and, since then, have managed more than 30 luxury properties all along the Coast.

Thanks to our business, we have grown a large knowledge of vacation houses and the needs of foreign vacationers. At the same time, we haven’t forgotten the pleasure and necessity of traveling with a limited budget!

Massi purchased this house in 2012

Why Massi chose Uvita

Ocean Melody is the synthesis of our experience, as it joins the accessible price with all the comforts travelers need during their vacation time.

You will enjoy the piece of mind of living in a cosy house managed by professional property managers, who live in the area and will always be available for assisting you!

What makes this house unique

We have built this Casita ourselves, giving our concept of vacation home to it . Houses along the Coast belong to two opposite concepts: on one side, very luxurious houses built by foreigners and provided with all comforts, but very isolated and very expensive; on the other side, local homes, with good rental prices but built without considering the basic comforts foreign travelers require.

Ocean Melody has been built looking for a joining point of these two concepts: Simple but with good taste, fully equipped for travelers’ comfort but without useless luxuries, private but not isolated, close to the beaches and still at a very accessible price!

Great place to stay and relax near Uvita

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Melody is a great place to spend several days. The kitchen is fully equipped and makes it easy to fix your own meals. The beach and several restaurants and tour operators are a short walking distance away. But best of all is the comfortable porch and pool area, where you can really relax with a book or sleep in the hammock. A great place to stay when visiting the Uvita/Dominical area. Highly recommended.

Amazing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely fortunate to stay at the Ocean Melody for 17 days. Beautiful little gem in a wonderful, friendly town. The grounds surrounding the home which has everything you need are simply outstanding. Private, peaceful and full of wildlife to watch from the pool, deck or hammock. Simply an amazing place. Close to beautiful beaches, everything in walking distance the Ocean Melody provides an oasis for relaxing after a busy day. We truly loved the place and hope to be back. Would encourage anyone coming to the area to stay here as they certainly will not be disappointed.

Seculded, private and quiet, the perfect place to spend all day naked!

  • 5 of 5

We were recommended this place by our vet, a chap who is a skiing nut and his partner finally got him to Costa Rica over winter and he was converted! The standard of the accommodation is very high and the only improvement we would suggest would be a king bed and quieter a/c, but the former wouldn't fit and the latter would be fitted today. That said the a/c was very efficient and I slept with ear plugs for the first two nights until I got used to it. And more importantly we both slept VERY well. Our day started without getting dressed and proceeded along those lines until we had to go out to get groceries! The wildlife saw us and we saw it back again as nature intended.

Things offered such as a blue tooth speaker, coffee filters and a small basket of oil and herbs made all the difference. The place was spotlessly clean with fresh flowers on the deck and crystal clear pool that was perfect for cooling off. perhaps the kitchen knives could be a little sharper and another chopping board wouldn't go amiss, but we had everything one could need to cook two great fish suppers.

So if want excellent value, a high standard of accommodation and VERY clear instructions of what to do/where to go/how to get there this is the place for you. Clothing really is optional...and it felt really good to be out of it for a few days and yet offend no one with our droopy bits!

Great little place in the heart of Uvita

  • 5 of 5

The design of this cabin was really cool, we spent most of our time on the wooden decks listening to music and drinking beer, or in the pool. Don't be surprised to get a few visitors as well. We had a parrot snake (non venomous) show up on the deck when we had returned from our whale/dolphin tour, also had parrots and toucans in the trees surrounding the property, iguanas, and monkeys. There are two large grocery stores just 5 minutes away, but also several little mini supers (convenience stores) within a minute or two walk. The whales tale and the whale/dolphin tour companies can be reached by foot in just a few minutes as well. The cabin has everything you need and the shower is perfect for refreshing you after a long day at the beach or hiking in the mountain. I will definitely look here first when staying in Uvita.

Best way to experience the Central-South Pacific area of CR

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this little house, an all-wood cabin with deep porches and lovely landscaping. It has everything you need and is just the right size. We were able to shop and cook our own meals in the fully equipped lovely kitchen, eat outside on either of the two spacious decks, sleep well (with or without AC), and swim in the buff in our own private pool. We had visits from monkeys (including Howlers) and a variety of birds. The house is only 2 or 3 blocks from Playa Uvita and the Whale's Tail with all the main attractions close by. You can walk or bike to downtown Uvita for business or shopping. There were days where we just simply hung out "at home," slept in the hammock and listened to the rain on the roof. There's an alarm system and a safe, so leaving your valuables behind is super easy. The price was economical, leaving us plenty left to indulge in fun activities, of which there are so many, you hardly know where to start. On the walk to the beach, you'll find most of the tour operators, boat and horse rentals, snorkeling outfitters, etc.. Overall, we can't recommend Ocean Melody more highly. We will be back for sure! Thank you, Massi, for creating such a lovely, well thought-out vacation home!
