Location: Uvita, Costa Rica
From every room in this home, you will see the spectacular vista over the Whales Tale with three national parks filling the horizon (Corcovado, Isla de Caños, and Bahia Ballena). This beautiful, four-bedroom ocean-view home is just seven minutes from the Uvita beaches, nature tours, whale watching, surfing, and more. It is just five minutes from downtown Uvita where you will find all conveniences such as schools, groceries, medical services, shopping, restaurants, and much more.
But, this home is located on the hillside avoiding the noise and bustle of the town. And it is at an altitude to get a spectacular view of the Whale’s Tail and fresh daily onshore breezes! Location, location, location!!
The property as a rental is in a very upscale community where the nightly rentals are high and also carry the highest occupancy rates. While most luxury homes in this area sit on tiny plots of land, this property has almost an acre with space to either build more or keep your privacy.
The owner has begun the permitting for an additional unit to be built above the existing home which could make this a 5-bedroom
rental or a 4-bedroom rental with an owner’s residence. You may continue this permitting/building if it fits your plans.
The existing four bedrooms are arranged in two adjacent buildings each with Teak-wood kitchens. This arrangement makes it perfect to accommodate either one large group or two smaller groups which makes your rental offering more flexible. The main residence of this combo consists of two luxury bedrooms upstairs, each with equally spectacular ocean views and en-suite bathrooms, a large living room downstairs with the same ocean view, and the kitchen with an island offering the best view of all looking out across the top of the infinity-edge pool.
The second building is laid out with two en-suite bedrooms, with an office and bedroom combination on the first level that can be converted to two bedrooms for larger groups, and a studio setup on the second level with a small kitchen, a murphy bed, and huge private porch. Both bedrooms here have equally stupendous ocean views.
From a business standpoint, the property itself offers great flexibility as well. Although for the neighborhood, the property offering is a large parcel, it is comprised of four separate properties each one
touching a public road (and therefore having access to water, internet, and electricity). This arrangement offers great flexibility for future building projects or partial sale of assets from the main offering.
The house was built with great care and great attention to the selection of building materials. All the woods are locally grown and much of the Teak wood was grown personally by the owner on his own farmland.
There are also some very select local hardwoods used that are rarely seen these days. Furniture is made of Ron Ron, the stairs and second-level flooring are all Nazareno (Purple Heart), and the beds up there are made of Cristobal. The building is constructed of heavy steel with concrete sheathing which provides both economy and durability.
