Property description

Casa Maria is a spectacular rental home situated in the jungle covered mountains above Uvita Costa Rica that was designed to be your home away from home. This newly remodeled (2015) rental home is conveniently located just minutes away from local shops, beaches and activities the area has to offer. The property is encircled by lush rainforest and enjoys expansive views of the Pacific Ocean with the regions most well known landmark, the Whale’s Tail, right in the middle of a panoramic scene. The convenient location and the attention to detail and comfort make Casa Maria a standout rental property in Uvita and, one of the nicest in the Costa Ballena region of Costa Rica.

The property at Casa Maria consists of two separate homes that can host groups ranging from 6 to 14 adults, and more if there are children in the party. The three bedroom main house sleeps up to ten people and has an open floor plan that takes full advantage of the surrounding beauty. When your group isn’t playing outside in the pool and enjoying the large patio with new outdoor furniture, they are sure to congregate in the kitchen and living room areas that flow together seamlessly.

The large living room has an exceptionally comfortable wrap-around sofa and a large flat screen TV with DVD player and surround sound making it an excellent place to relax and watch a movie or read a book.

The large kitchen will delight the chef in your group. It is fully stocked with gas range, large refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, espresso machine, cookware, glasses, dishes and silverware. You will find all the items you need to cook a gourmet meal. The grill is outside on the pool patio just a few steps from the kitchen. If you prefer to stay in and don't want to cook we can arrange to have a personal chef come to the home and prepare a meal for your group with fresh, local ingredients. Please ask Mercedes for more information.

Children and Parents will love Casa Maria. We have numerous children in our family so we built what we call ‘Munchkin Land.’ This is a playroom with games, books, toys, and a rocking horse that will keeps kids busy so that parents can relax. We have a full crib that converts to a small daybed for toddlers and a pack-n-play. These can be moved into any of the bedrooms at Casa Maria.

The equally appointed “Casita at Casa Maria” is a cozy two bedroom, one bath with large kitchen, comfortable couches and a TV room. We have found that large groups with multiple couples or teens enjoy the layout of the separate homes which offers extra privacy and solitude.

NOTE: If your group consists of 10 people or less we can offer the main house without access to the casita at a reduced rate
(-$500 per week or -$72 per night) This offer is available at our discretion and will depend upon potential occupancy.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We are the Shriwise family from Western Kansas USA. My name is Mary. I am a first grade teacher whose love for Casa Maria is only second to the kids in my class. My husband Sid is a farmer. He likes to stay busy so he runs around the grounds of Casa Maria planting trees, flowers and fruit during his vacations. We put a lot of love into Casa Maria and we think you will see it in every detail.

Why Bahía Ballena, Costa Rica:
We hope you enjoy Casa Maria as much as we do. Our family travels to Uvita every chance we get for a good dose of sunshine and the relaxing vibes known locally as Pura Vida. If you are trying to decide which area of Costa Rica you want to visit, we think you will enjoy the town of Uvita and the entire Costa Ballena region. There is so much to do, see and experience that you, like us, won't want to ever leave. Casa Maria is a fully stocked rental home that is perfect for large groups, families or couples looking for a vacation rental with privacy and comfort immersed in un-spoiled Costa Rican beauty. We invite you into our home and hope you enjoy your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love Casa Maria because you have complete privacy yet are only minutes from town. There is a waterfall just below the house where you can swim and play for hours.
