Property description

Casa Mar is one of 3 simple homes built in our tiny Pueblo at Playa Ballena. Along the main entry road to the Marina Ballena National Park-Playa Ballena is where these simple homes are located. These are affordable homes located within 600 meters of the tranquility and beautiful natural surroundings of Playa Ballena (Ballena Beach). It is a simple stroll to uncrowded beaches. And access is easy with a 2wd vehicle!

Casa Mar is the largest of the homes consisting of 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a kitchen, dining room and living room. We just finished remodeling the home and it has high speed WiFi, tiled counter tops, entirely new bath, new furniture, 5 new ceiling fans, washer and dryer and full hot water throughout the home. There is a large front porch and huge private, covered deck at the rear of the house.

This home is ideal for a few night stopover in our tropical paradise or as a longer term rental for those looking to enjoy life here in Costa Rica. Stays of a week or longer will really enjoy the upgraded interior, washer/dryer and large patio and deck for additional sitting spaces. As the windows are wooden frames with screening throughout, we have installed a secured lock box for assuring security of valuables during your stay.

For larger groups, or even more budgeted oriented travelers, a second home consisting of 2 bedrooms and 1 bath may be available within the Pueblo.

You will enjoy your stay at Casa Mar and the beautiful Southern Coast of Ballena from Dominical to Ojochal. This home located perfectly in Playa Ballena, less than 1 minute to the main highway and then 5 minutes to either Uvita for shopping or Ojochal for it's culinary delights!

Nearby every Costa Rican adventure and activity is available. You can arrange a trip to the incredible and most bio-diverse area in Costa Rica, Corcovado National Park. Try surfing, stand-up paddle boards, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling or diving, horseback riding, waterfall tours, Zip line/canopy tours, Costa Rica's first and only Superman line, whale watching tours and more.
