About this listing
Comfortable and spacious bungalow with all basics 300 mts from private cove beach and surrounded by 50 acres Jungle Reserve.
White Cloud Sanctuary is a Hidden retreat and Internal Martial Arts hermitage established in Costa Rica since 1972.
The property has been chosen as special environment for Inner Practice, Contemplation and being close to Nature: special for Martial Artist, Kung Fu, Qigong (chinese Meditation) , Tai Chi, Yoga practitioner, but also all type of artists that wish to find the perfect place to hide and find Peace.
If you are looking for seclusion to immerse yourself in (tons of) Nature and perfect your Art, this is the right place.
Our beautiful Sanctuary is nestled in a Jungle reserve of 60 acres, composed of primary and secondary forest that stretches and continues "where the mountain meets the ocean" to a secluded private cove beach
A "retreat on your own" experience, a place where you can disconnect from everyday life and spend time cultivating your Art and develop further your Discipline.
The space is a spacious 2 bedrooms bungalow with all the basic equipment, 300 mt (5 min walk) to a private cove beach.
the Panamerican Road runs between the beach and the upper part of the property (where the bungalow is located) so there is noise at times when trucks run by with their heavy breaks on, but there are lots of places around the farm, especially by the beah, where to enjoy real Peace
Additionally to lodging, Individual Tai Chi classes could be arranged or you might be invited to attend individual and group sessions (awareness/ Qigong meditation), or Zhang Zhang (standing meditation), or participate to a Satsangs meeting (but be aware! things will be said here will not exactly be the ones you'd like to hear!..at least not the usual "spiritual stuff").
or you could come join us in Push Hands Practice.
You can choose a total retreat and never leave the grounds of the Temple for the duration of your retreat, for those that CAN endure this type of challenge/solitude test (we do your shopping once or twice a week) or you can have a less "restricted" stay and be allowed "to go out and about" at your own pleasure.
Rent goes lower as one stays longer also as a reward: it shows that you are sticking to your Discipline!

Our neighborhood is famous for dolphins and whales sighting, the Marino Ballena National Park, surfing, waterfalls nearby, hiking, horseback tours.
Uvita is a healthy fast growing community, vibrant and multicultural, 9km south of our Sanctuary.
Every Saturday the organic farmers market is held in the center of town runned both by by locals and foreigners.
Keep the living space clean, respect privacy of others,
It was a great experience.
First of all the hosts were fantastic : communicated with me in a timely manner and responded to all my questions,worked with me to insure connections from San Jose.
The place itself is great,clean,well maintained with thoughtful additions: coffee, flowers, fresh fruit etc.more than I expected.
It is an outstanding setting,amid bush and bamboo, with a lovely front veranda and frankly one of the best hot showers anywhere.
It's private and makes a wonderful inspirational retreat and only a short bus ride to Uvita and Dominical for shopping, banks etc.
There is a private beach several hundred meters away.
Internet connection and an array of spectacular wildlife....! Not to be missed!
