One of our favorite parts of this luxury villa is its open-air design. It features many spacious windows and door walls in each room to bring in natural sunlight. This also means you can see the colorful sunset from every room in the house. With the high elevation of the house and the abundance of ceiling fans, there’s a gentle breeze coming through at all times. The front of the house looks like your own little rain forest. They’ve landscaped the house by putting pavers and rocks in, as well as adding tropical trees and flowers. You’ll also find some more Balinese statues.
The other thing we love is the location. Conveniently located close to everything, Playa Hermosa Beach is only four minutes away, while the town of Uvita is merely five minutes to the North. Dominical is only 10 minutes to the South and the famous Manual Antonio National Park is only 40 minutes away. The Quepos airport is a half hour away.
With living in the center of everything, you’re surrounded by outdoor activities. If you want to get a closer look at the famous Whale’s Tail, you can see it better from the beaches in Costa Ballena National Park. It can be difficult to hike on uneven rocks so wear the appropriate footwear. However, the sight is well worth it—there are thousands of tide pools and rock formations near the tip of the whale’s tail. This is just the beginning.
In nearby Dominical, you’ll find the Nauyaca Waterfalls, which you can ride up to on horseback. In addition at Playa Dominical beach, they have some of the best waves in the region for experienced surfers. These are just a few of the eco-adventures you’ll experience from moving to Costa Rica.
