Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Uvita, Province of Puntarenas
The Costa Ballena, or Whale's Coast, is one of the coolest spots in Costa Rica. This beautiful home features the best view of the Whale's Tail in the Southern Zone and enjoys continuous fresh breezes. In addition to the awe-inspiring view, the benefits of being up in the mountains include a microclimate that is about 10 degrees cooler than in town and on the beach, and few biting insects, as we are above the 'bugline'. You will be serenaded daily by a wide variety of birds, monkeys and rainforest critters. Open the doors wide and enjoy indoor/ outdoor living with the best view of the Whale's Tail!

Situated 10 minutes above Uvita, this 3000 sf home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a pool, large deck and a luxurious outdoor shower. Enjoy the best view in the world while taking an outdoor shower by the pool!

The setting is like none I've ever stayed, literally in the clouds, surrounded by rain forest, and a view to the ocean and beyond! I tried to take a photo of the home from behind because there really isn't one, and it looks so magnificent,...More

The home is amazing, beautiful views all around. The deck overlooks the jungle, which seems to cascade right down to the beach and ocean. You can hear the monkeys and macaws and the sunset is breathtaking. We went with another couple and the house was...More

How to get there
If you don’t have it, download the WAZE app for directions while you are in town – much better and more reliable than Google Maps. There is a new 'super highway' that runs from San Jose south to Jaco, at which point you'll be driving the coastline to Uvita. It's an easy road. Sometimes some construction, but an easy road. 
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 4.0 km.
