We have 2 complete apartments. Each is has it's own kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. It is a 75 step walk out to the beautiful caribbean for a little snorkeling or just around the point to the Punta Uva Dive center for some scuba or paddle boards! If you continue beyond Punta Uva to Manzanillo, you will find more beautiful beaches and Punta Mona, a sustainable farm tour. Also, heading towards Puerto Viejo, you'll find the Jaguar Rescue, a must see for a great value to learn about many of the local animals/reptiles/plants. There are many local 'soda's' or restaurants along the way to get a taste of the Caribbean flair of food. Be sure to stop in a Caribbeans to sample chocolate in the chocolate lounge, yum! In Puerto Viejo, for a great cup of coffee and sweet treats is Bread and Chocolate. If you are up for a good breakfast, Cafe Rico, and they open early for the earlybirds! Gecko Trail Adventures is an all around wealth of information to help you set up your zipline tour, excursions and adventures. If boating is your thing, dolphins, fishing, snorkeling, picnicking at a deserted cove, Wahoo Tours is for you. The area is great for down time too, if you just want to grab a book and read on the beach.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: After vacationing here we just couldn't resist moving, we fell in love with the area, the flora and fauna, the climate, the people and mostly all the colors of the Caribbean.

Why the Owner Chose Punta Uva, Costa Rica:
Typical realtor saying… Location location location! The coral reef right in front of our property, the ability to just walk out and stick our toes in the sand, fall asleep to the sound of the gentle waves, wake to the occasional monkey troop in the distance. The beauty here is like none other, with the tropical rainforest trees and plants, sights and sounds, not to mention the some of the tropical smells of the Ylang Ylang trees, plumeria, and white ginger. Sammie our resident juvenile sloth is always a treat to watch along with the amazing diversity and migration of birds.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our first visit to Costa Rica included a stay just down the street at Arrecife, and I was instantly in love with the area. Turns out some 13 months later, we were approached about being able to buy our home, in the same neighborhood we fell in love with. Our 2 story round home has been a labor of love, being able to renovate and enjoy the area at the same time. We have 2 complete apartments, each with one bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom with shower, so 2 couples can come and have plenty of privacy, or be together in our separate community kitchen, while still enjoying vacationing together!
