About this listing
Grand views and nature surround you in a setting on a Rain Forest mountain above Playa Ballena. The Two Master Suite design is ideal for couples or small families traveling together. Secluded and accessed by private road, which is a well maintained road through a rain forest mountain, but it is a road through a rain forest mountain, so we require a 4WD vehicle. The 4WD is not necessary to navigate the road, but it preserves our gravel surface and is a more comfortable ride for you.
In the Heart of Costa Ballena, above Playa Ballena and overlooking the rock formations of Parque Nacional Marino Ballena (Ballena National Marine Park) is the Eco-Residencial Community of Perla Ballena, where this home is located.
The design is Two Master Suites, which open to terraces above the pool. The Main Living Level with kitchen & dining, outside salon and a third bath adjacent to an area with a futon which converts to the third bedroom with bath for sleeping accommodations.
Wake up for coffee or tea on the outside salon area to see Toucans cruising past or maybe a Pizote (raccon type animal) stealing papaya from the trees below the pool, as you look out over the Pacific to the Osa Peninsula and Isla del Cano in the distance. January to April and July to October you may see Humback Whales breaching in the waters off Playa Ballena (Whale Beach) You are surrounded by primary rainforest where Howler Monkeys or White Face Monkeys may be encountered at any time.
A private and gated road keeps the Perla Ballena Community secure and peaceful. The Private Road is a good road, but please be aware it is a road through a Rain Forest mountain, we require that you have a 4WD vehicle, it is not critical for access but is more secure and comfortable for you and causes much less wear on our gravel surface. Trails in the Private Preserve areas lead you to a waterfall and cascades, or just to enjoy the tranquility and sounds of the forest.
Included with your vacation rental is the use of our BALLENA BEACH CLUB facility, two pools, showers, parking for visiting Playa Ballena with full Restaurant and Bar service at Restaurante Villa Leonor.

We are in a unique part of the Costa Rica South Coast, known as Costa Ballena. Eco & Rural Tourism with Fine Food and services available throughout the area.
A rental car is needed to enjoy the different attractions and amenities of Costa Ballena. The house is up on the mountain, too far to walk down to the highway and public transport. It is also a private road through a rain forest mountain, so 4WD is required, not critical to traverse the road but more secure and comfortable for you and less wear for our gravel surface we maintain.
Respectful care of the home is all that is expected.
I have been in Ballena on the South Pacific Coast for 18 years, my wife, Ana is from the Ojochal & Tres Rios area just south of Ballena. The home offered is within a develpment I completed which is a true eco-residential community, with over 100 acres of primary forest & streams protected as a private preserve. Our business at Playa Ballena is Restaurante y Bar Villa Leonor at Ballena Beach Club which is a semi private beach facility to enjoy a comfortable day at the beach.
