The space

For travelers who are looking for something more than budget, Ocean Melody is the place!

Private and comfortable for two guests, this brand new casita is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia.
Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves.

The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion.
Air conditioning provides extra cooling in the bedroom. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room sofa bed is available for young families with kids.
The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with South Italian tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV, with satellite and video library, on the comfortable micro-fiber textured sofa and armchair.
The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.
The spacious external porch offers two rocking chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable high speed wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws!
The external new garden is equipped with a BBQ area, a round stone table and chairs, and outdoor shower. The parking place is gated, private and lightened at night.

No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organizing mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from Ocean Melody!

No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With Ocean Melody you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimize your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

Ocean Melody is incredible. We loved every minute we were there. The location is so close to such an incredible beach where we walked early every morning - (luckily low tide during our stay) and then having the gorgeous pool and house to come back to, where we could prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, (there is a gas cooker with 4 burners, a microwave, a blender and a full size fridge freezer) We spent a lot of time relaxing on the deck or in the hammock and slept well in the decent bed. We saw a lot of wildlife just while we were sitting in the garden including eight howler monkeys and one capuchin in the trees to the right of the house. So many different birds too. Just amazing. The instructions we received beforehand were very detailed and we were a bit nervous about keys and alarms etc but it all made sense once we arrived. Thank you so much Massi.

This little casita is perfect. At the end of an unpaved street, it is a secluded, private little pad with a pool and full kitchen. It is neat, tidy and efficient. Highly recommended for two.

We enjoyed a our stay at Ocean Melody. Very nice flower arrangements greeted us upon arriving. The name fits the location as you can hear the song of the waves. Loved the Bali style outdoor living and plunge pool, very relaxing and private Easy walking distance to restaurants and Marine Park. Nice farmers market on Saturday. $4 cab ride to get to main part of town for bank and major grocery store. Overall a good value. I definitely would recommend to others and certainly worth a return visit.

We had such a great time staying at both our locations with Massi both Ocean Melody and Casa Serena. Any time we had any issue he was very quick to respond and solve. Ocean Melody was a great retreat we could have not enjoyed more. It was also great to be walking distance to the national park.

We just finished a 2 night stay here. Absolutely perfect in every way! Massi is an incredible host and was great communicating. We found the listing on VRBO first, then Airbnb which is what we booked through. The hammock and plunge pool were perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. Easy walking to Marino Ballena National Park and the sodas just outside. Grocery store is less than a mile away. We cannot recommend this place enough...except we don't want to so that it's always available when we want to return! One of, if not THE best value accommodations anywhere near Bahia Ballena for a couple trying to get away.

Ocean Melody was a lovely little place to stay in Bahia. It was easy to get to (we had a car), a short walk to the beach and the whale tail plus a couple of restaurants/sodas, and came fully equipped to cook meals. While small inside & relatively basic, it was very clean & the perfect size for two for a few days. The outdoor area is what makes it special - we spent most of our time on the spacious deck & by the lovely pool. Communication & info given to us before arrival was great too!
