Morpho Eco Retreat is an eco-friendly, designed villa perched above the jungle valley. The villa is a unique rental in the southern area of Costa Rica due to its unusual design and great privacy.
This special property, on four acres, just 10 minutes up the mountain from the town of Uvita, is ideal for those who seek modern comfort, an outdoor lifestyle, and amazing views.
Highlights of the property include " Infinity Plunge Pool with an unobstructed, view of the Whale's Tail National Park below", as well as river access with a waterfall and swimming hole within walking distance while remaining on the property. The main deck, which functions as the outdoor dining area, offers daily opportunities for bird-watching and the westward view offers a wonderful vantage point of Cano Island, one of the finest destinations for snorkeling and scuba diving in Costa Rica.
Morpho Eco Retreat was designed by Los Angeles- based architect, James Meraz.
Limited environmental impact and the utilization of natural, locally-sourced materials were adhered to throughout the construction process. Many types of wood, native to Costa Rica, were used on the custom interior furnishings.
The result is a unique, modern two bedroom / two bathroom villa, accompanied by a separate one bedroom / one bathroom guesthouse set below, in the lush jungle.
*** You will need to rent a 4x4 vehicle with low gears to access the property due it's location, situated up one of the many mountain roads found in the area. We strongly reccommend arriving during daylight hours so that our management team can escort you to the property to familiarize yourselves with the roads. We hope you enjoy the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica***
The main house accommodates six while the additional guesthouse sleeps four…(this is available for an extra fee) making this a perfect option for larger groups as well.
When viewed from above, the inward-facing roof design of the main villa evokes a butterfly-in-flight. The name, Morpho Eco Retreat, was derived from the Blue Morpho, one of the most beautiful butterflies in Costa Rica.
The primary residence includes a master bedroom, with a king bed set against a dramatic teak headboard which camouflages the master closet. Along with an en-suite bathroom that includes a double shower as well as his & her sinks, the area is a perfect refuge at the end of the day.
