The unique, modern architecture of the recently completed, Villa Vista Milagrosa, is both stunning and functional. The villa's 600 sq. ft. main room offers comfort and space to relax. High vaulted ceilings combined with a folding glass wall and large windows allows for the tropical indoor/outdoor living experience and captures the wonderful cool coastal and mountain breezes. A large 10 ft diameter ceiling fan gently moves the air when the breezes subside in the late afternoon. You can relax by one of two pools and sunbathe on the large mirador that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the blue ocean, rugged mountains and lush, green valley. If you are an early riser you can enjoy a cup of coffee or yoga while listening to flocks of parrots and howler monkeys. Later in the day you can relax and watch the beautiful tropical sunsets, which are simply magnificent.
Villa Vista Milagrosa has 3 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, access to the pool, and fantastic ocean views, providing the ideal footprint for several vacationing couples, or for families with children.

About Christopher & Debra Kent
We built our retirement home after searching many countries. Only Costa Rica stood out for us as it provided a beautiful setting with both mountain and ocean views. The mountains meet the sea at the beaches where you can spend hours without seeing another person! We felt safe and were welcomed by the native Costa Ricans who are a friendly people, especially to Gringos like us who are not yet bilingual! So choosing Costa Rica was easy, but building a home in a foreign country was scary! We stayed in many houses and hotels in the area for about 4 years before we bit the bullet and broke ground. By staying in so many houses we learned what we wanted, learned what didn't work well and learned what was important to us. We had our home designed with multiple roof lines to capture a view with each step you take to the main level , while using the roof angles to capture the breezes from the valley. We have fulfilled our dream, and look forward to leaving the cold Ohio winters to retire at Villa Vista Milagrosa when our 2 kids are off to college! We hope that Villa Vista Milagrosa and the southern zone of Costa Rica together make your vacation the most memorable!

Perfect set up
The design of this house is perfect for a family. The pool was a welcome relief on the hot days and sitting out watching the stars at night was amazing . Big Ass Fan kept the inside cool when the doors were open. The other amazing thing was we never got one misquote bite. Maybe it was the time of year or the altitude of the house. Kitchen was well stocked. Showers were warm. Beds were comfortable. We felt safe and secure with the area as well.
The villa with the perfect name!
Yes, the view was absolutely FABULOUS!! We had monkeys, toucans, butterflies, and birds aplenty in the trees around the house. The lawns are beautifully landscape, the pool is clean and large enough for laps. We swam many times a day.
The rooftop terrace was the perfect place to watch the sunrise early in the morning, and for happy hour! At this time of the year, the sun sets behind the trees, so it was a partial view but the concert of nature's songs was beautiful.
The house is in a gated community, neighbour are friendly and quiet. It is fully-equiped, comfortable, with AC. The house is beautiful - its decor is contemporary and just perfect! We loved the blender for smoothies, the large refrigerator to fill with goodies brought from the neighbouring farmers' markets (cheeses, breads, fruits, jams, and more!). The bed and bedding were comfortable and recent, as were bath towels. There is a bbq to grill fish and burgers.
The housekeepers - Keith & Karen - were responsive, welcoming and efficient.
It was totally relaxing, peaceful and beautiful. The house is perfect!
We will return! We loved it!
Fantastic Vacation in Paradise
This was our 5th visit to Costa Rica, and 3rd in the Uvita / Ojochal area. This home is beautiful and the design and layout is fabulous; definitely our favourite home so far. The property is high enough up the mountain to have a great ocean view, but also not so high up that you miss the wildlife. We saw monkeys, toucans and macaws in the nearby trees on several mornings. The property is also beautifully landscaped. Both the owner and the property managers (Karen & Keith) were very helpful. Thank you Debra & Chris for sharing your property with us. Wishing we were still there....
Thank you for your kind words. We spent a lot of time and effort in the design of VVM. We are always interested in how we can make your experience better. If you have any suggestions drop us a quick email. We would love to have you as guests again when you come back to CR.
We loved this place. After 10 years of visiting the area, this will be the only place to which we will return.
Glad to hear it!! We look forward to having you as our guests again.
What a view what a location
Everything was wonderful. This house has it all. Chris (owner) Karen (property manager) could not have been more accommodating. We had a great time in the pool and on the grounds. Great food choices in the area. Great surfing and beaches. Waterfalls in the area are great as well. The drive from SanJose is worth it to spend time in this great area.
Thanks for a great vacation.
That was our exact reaction when we saw this spectacular property many years ago. We spent a lot of time and effort tried to make our villa a very special place for people to enjoy Costa Rica. We look forward to having you as our guest again..Pura Vida
AMAZING, MAGICAL, PERFECTION
From start to finish the house continued to amaze us. Prior to arrival the communication was seamless, from directions, adventures, town map, suggestions, phone numbers , and house info. Our caretakers Keith and Karen were phenomenal, bringing extra propane for grilling , fixing wifi, making sure we were comfortable , and explaining the in's, and out's. once you enter the property your stunned by the mountaintop views; expansive, vast, and picturesque. Not shown in pictures is the amazing staircase from the carport to the perfect pool; big, clean , and perfect for lounging all day in the sun! Each room has its own character, and bathroom. All bedrooms connect to the wrap around porch connected to the pool! Ample mood lighting for midnight swimming,listening to the jungle sounds, or rooftop hanging in the foot pool for lunch and relaxing. The kitchen/living room(s) was equip with more then we could have expected, pots and pans , cups, utensils, nothing was forgotten for cooking a gourmet dinner in the jungle. With a kitchen table for 6 and an island for 4, large families would have no problems entertaining for a day home not at the beach. The living room with the "big ass fan" was much needed , with it off ;you can feel the humidity and warmth Costa Rica's noted for, with it on...feels like your walking into a perfectly air conditioned day spa. An extra sitting area near the accordion glass doors entering the main pool area with lounger chairs , and remote controlled retractable screen to keep bugs out. The master bathroom stole the show with huge deep soaker tub, double vanity, and glass shower, with jet sprayers. Every bedroom has air conditioning not that you'll need it with French sliding doors and huge fans in each . From top to bottom, inside and outside , every detail was thought about . We couldn't have made a better decisions for staying in Costa Rica in the mountaintop mansion! With so much to see and do , I can't see myself staying anywhere else besides this house! Can't wait to come back and enjoy another magical getaway in this gem!!
Hats off to the perfect hosts!
You made this a magical trip !
Until next time !
We are so glad you had such a good time at Villa Vista Milagrosa! Thank you for your kind review. We hope that our guests enjoy the amenities to be able to prepare a gourmet meal when not enjoying all of the fabulous restaurants in Ojochal..
You'll be happy to hear that we have had a professionally installed huge shade sail over the top patio to provide for more shade and enjoyment of the sunrises and beautiful sunsets!
We were at our home the week before you and had no trouble with the wifi ... the jungle has its moments sometimes , but we are glad the wifi man and our caretakers were able to address the problem.
We hope that you got to take advantage of the cooler and beach chairs for a relaxing day at our beautiful 7 beaches so close to the house. Hopefully you might have seen a whale? We had heard when we were there that 3 whales were spotted on another renters excursion.
Looking forward to your return !
Debra and Chris
