The Space


This unique, tropical home has outstanding views of the beaches of Ballena Marine Park, the Whale’s Tail and Costa Rica's Pacific coastline.

The property is 1.5 acres and is at an elevation of 1100 ft (300 meters) Featuring structural bamboo vaulted ceilings - designed with air-flow in mind. No need for A/C as the updrafts keep the house cool and fresh during the day and mountain downdrafts keeping you cool at night!

A full kitchen with BBQ, 2 bathrooms, living area, laundry and covered patio. Exotic hardwoods throughout. A covered patio with comfortable chairs to sit back and watch songbirds and tropical birds visit in the trees that surround. This house literally feels like you are in a tree house. Gorgeous gardens surround the house.

A large master bedroom downstairs with King size bed, full ensuite bathroom and a walk in closet with a safe. Ocean views...and soon…immediate access to the infinity pool right off the terrace!

We have second bedroom available in the casita, with queen size bed, kitchenette and bathroom. This gives you options if traveling with friends or older children. See the rates below. We have more photos and details we can forward you.

Guest Access

When staying at Casa Bambu - you have the entire 1.5 acres to yourself. We do not rent the casita if the main house is rented - unless you have arranged to have some friends or family stay with you.

Interaction with Guests

Trina, our property manager lives just a few minutes away from the house. She will meet you upon your arrival to Uvita. She'll provide you with the keys and introduce you to the house. Trina has a wealth of information to share about current local activities, festivals and general tour suggestions.

The Neighborhood

There is much to do in and around Uvita - Visit Ballena Marine Park and take a walk out to the Whale's Tail during low tide. Plan a horseback ride on the beach and to local waterfalls with La Merced. Charter a fishing boat for some of the most amazing off shore fishing you will ever experience! Rent an ATV and tour waterfalls and though the jungle. Take a boat trip to the Corcovado National Park in the Osa. Zipline, canopy walks and birdwatching tours. Oh and don't forget the surfing! Take in the skills of the locals at Playa Hermosa or Playa Dominical at sunset, then head out for a delicious dinner at one of many of the fabulous restaurants in our area.

Getting Around

Access to this property is along a jungle road. (It does have a couple of steep sections and requires a 4WD SUV. Ask us about a 20% discount on vehicle rentals that we can arrange for our guests.) Occasional sightings of sloths, Capuchan monkeys, Howler monkeys, jagarundi's, toucans, aricari's and parrots can be taken in along the drive to the house - bound to enhance your Costa Rican adventure!

Other Things to Note

We have a casita available for friends or family. Suitable for older children as well. The rate is $300/week if rented with the house.
