Beautiful Rainforest Sanctuary Close To Uvita With Two Ocean View Homes Near The Morete River
Built in 2010, Casa Buena Onda consists of a 3,200 sq.ft. main house, a 1,200 sq.ft. guest house, a 700 sq.ft. workshop and a 500 sq.ft. outdoor palapa on almost one acre of land. Hands down, this is one of our favorite properties in the area. Located close to Uvita approximately 15 minutes up from the Costanera Highway in the pueblo of San Josecito, the setting is pure Costa Rica. Completely surrounded by nature, you will enjoy a green rainforest ambience teeming with wildlife, whitewater ocean views and beautiful rivers and creeks seemingly everywhere. Even when it is hot down at the beach, the ocean breezes blowing up the valley keep the climate comfortably cool day and night.
Within a short walk from your backdoor, you will arrive at the stunningly beautiful Morete River. This scenic stretch of the river is a prime destination as it includes waterfalls cascading from the mountainsides and natural waterslides that empty into deep fresh water swimming holes. Those who are lucky enough to have been here in person often compare it to scenes from the movie Jurassic Park. Even though this is one of the most beautiful places you will find anywhere in Costa Rica, you will not find it in any tourism guide. Discovering magical places like this is one of the many benefits of living in the area and this local secret will be right at your fingertips!
Large Primary Residence With An Income Producing Guest House
The 4 bedroom / 2.5 bath main house was designed for both function and beauty. The living spaces have a great flow with an open floor plan with a kitchen and living room tied together by a large covered balcony. From here you will have a majestic bird’s eye view of the San Josecito Valley, the iconic Whale’s Tail at Marino Ballena National Park and Cano Island in the distance. This is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor dining while watching toucans and many other exotic birds frolicking at eye level in the lush rainforest canopy. The sleeping quarters are located on the opposite wing of the house. A spacious master bedroom includes a private bathroom, a large walk in closet and a wrap around balcony. Two more guest bedrooms include a shared full bathroom and an additional room currently used as an office could easily be utilized as an additional bedroom. The ground level includes covered parking, a spacious storage area with laundry room and beautifully landscaped gardens with ample space to accommodate a pool if you wish.
Privately nestled away from the main home is a single level 2 bedroom / 2 bath guest house with a spacious living room, full kitchen with a walk in pantry, an outdoor shower and beautifully landscaped grounds. Adjacent to this home is a fantastic open air palapa with an outdoor grill and dining area. The views from this portion of the property are just as fabulous as those of the main home. This “guest” home has been functioning successfully as a long term rental, providing a steady supplementary income for the current property owners. Depending on your situation, this home could easily serve as your primary residence while you rent out the larger home for more money. The property can also be subdivided if you wish to sell one or both homes separately.
Finishes and amenities for both homes include exotic hardwood ceilings and cabinetry, granite countertops, high end stainless kitchen appliances, polished concrete floors, vaulted ceilings, satellite television and high speed internet service. Other than personal items, both homes are selling turn key ready and fully furnished. The beautifully landscaped grounds are full of fruit bearing trees including mango, banana, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya, guanabana and more. Living in the mountains offers distinct advantages over living at the beach. You will definitely have more privacy and the temperature is much cooler, which also means less bugs. The property has a very safe and private feel yet it is not in the middle of nowhere. In only 15 to 20 minutes, you can enjoy shopping and dining in the town of Uvita or have your feet in the sands of the area’s beautiful tropical beaches.
