About our home

We love our beautiful jungle retreat and hope you will too. We came across it after we'd been living in Costa Rica for a few months and, having spotted the potential, launched into a top-to-bottom renovation, adding the 10-meter lap-pool and patio, Balinese-inspired outside bathroom, designer kitchen, and more. The house is very large, boasting 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an entire second kitchen, as well as a large basement. It sits on a 1.25 acre, newly landscaped plot right next to pristine, protected jungle. The huge veranda gives you the feeling of being on a platform among the trees, where every day you will see some of Costa Rica's rich wildlife passing through. We see toucans, parrots, howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, blue morpho butterflies and hummingbirds on a daily basis. The jungle creates a cool micro-climate, which combined with a steady breeze and the house's good ventilation makes it comfortable without air-conditioning. The outdoor bathroom is a very special feature - there are few better feelings than relaxing in the tub at dusk or early morning while listening to the jungle's song. The house is tucked away in a small gated community just above the tranquil beach town of Uviita, famous for its Whale-tail shaped beach and nearby surfing spots. World-class restaurants are 15 minutes drive away in Ojochal. The house gives you total privacy and quiet yet is only 5 minutes from Uvita town center and the beaches of the Marino Ballena National Park. We are only accepting stays of one week minimum and preferably longer.
