Whatever you choose to do, you can’t go wrong with Pura Uvita! We know you’ll probably never want to leave your newly found piece of paradise, but we encourage you to visit the local pristine beaches. You may even get lucky and spot a whale! When you’re ready to go out, Playa Ballena, the most famous beach host of the “Whale’s tail” is only a short drive away. Grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and pharmacy are also within a 2 mile drive from our property. The dirt road to the property is very well maintained; however, a four wheel drive vehicle is needed tsince the last stretch of the road is steep. Don’t worry, it’s all part of the Uvita experience and you’ll be guided to the site upon arrival. About the house We fell in love with the location as soon as we saw the view. We had been looking for properties all over Costa Rica, and when we found this one, we immediately knew this was it. The beauty of the Osa peninsula is breathtaking and there are no words for describing how relaxing it is to be able to look right down at the whale’s tail from the comfort of your home all while in the middle of the rainforest. If you are looking for a true Costa Rican green-lush rainforest experience, the Osa peninsula is definitely the place to go. The house was designed with a modern/industrial feel and boasts modern concrete and local wood finishes throughout. The two cedar trees that were cut to make room for the house were 100% utilized for closets, doors, and cabinets. Woods from other smaller trees were used throughout the construction process as well; our goal was to minimize waste as much as possible. We strived to create a very open floor plan which is why you’ll find ultra high ceilings and will be able to literally open up the living room into the terrace, creating a large indoor/outdoor environment and allowing air to circulate throughout the house. The design of the ceiling along with strategic fan placement help keep the house at a very comfortable temperature so A/C is not necessary (although it is available in the bedrooms). This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom size designed to comfortably fit 4 people (2 persons per room), but it can accommodate up to 8 people (there are 2 sofa beds in the living room). There is WiFi available as well as a flat screen internet-connected TV. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils you need to cook. Linens and towels are provided as are shampoo, conditioner, and soap.Pura Uvita has an infinity pool that overlooks whale's tail, a large terrace, and a lounging deck which could also be used for yoga.More

Look, Pura Uvita is much more than the most clever name you can give a vacation home in Uvita; it's perfection. The house is even better than I expected, and my expectations were high. Heck, we planned our vacation around the availability of this house....More
